I remember being in John Lewis with Lily around 6 months ago watching her pore over the Clarisonic display and not feeling at all bothered myself. Sooner or later though, as with most products that get a lot of hype, I was caught up in the blogger buzz. The Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System is a handheld, waterproof device that cleans your skin 6x better than just using your hands and the product. When the button is pressed, you have a minute to go over your face with the tool, either applying the product straight to the brush head beforehand or (as I personally prefer) working it into your skin with your hands before using the Mia. Sometimes I am prone to pressing the button 2 or 3 times in one go just because I enjoy using it so much. Personally I don't really like the cleanser that came with it, the smell puts me off and I'd just rather use what I'm used to. If I'm wearing makeup I'll remove that first using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and the muslin cloth that comes with it, or makeup remover and a cotton pad to get the bulk of product off (and so the brush head doesn't get stained orange!) and then use a foaming gel cleanser (I'm currently using this one from Soap & Glory) and it leaves my skin so soft and smooth as well as making me feel super squeaky clean. I was totally prepared for the 'purging stage' other people have spoken about, but the only thing I've been having problems with is dryness, not spots! I haven't used this in a while though as I have misplaced my charger. I'm really missing it so hoping it shows up soon! For reference I've had this since mid-Februrary, I wanted to give the product a good amount of time for me to review it properly. Overall, event though it's pricy I would recommend it. Maybe wait for a birthday or when the ASOS discounts come around though! Sometimes it's on BuyaPowa too!
Have you tried a Clarisonic tool yet? What do you think of them? Skin saviour or just a gimmick?
