CLARSONIC Facial Sonic Cleansing

July 27, 2014

Hey beauties, Hope your having a great weekend,

Mine started off great on friday (pay day!) I had the day off and headed into town with some friends.

Id heard alot about this facial brush cleanse from some american guests that used to come for facials when I worked on the cruise ship. Nearly every girl had one. When I got home to Ireland I didnt see them around but did some research on them and I was debating whether to buy one online or not.. It was around €150 to buy online. I wanted it... But kept putting it off until I really decided I needed one...

Being a beauty therapist, I look after my skin quite well, trying to do my own facials at home weekly.  Saving for my move to Australia, I haven't been splurging out on beauty treatments that I can more or less do myself at home. But my skin wasn't looking so clear the past few months. Iv been seeing little bumps under my skin, and I  felt my cleanser, exfoliation and few face masks just werent helping...

I took the bullet and invested in this bad boy. I bought it from the Lancomè counter in debenhams. When I got to the department store there was a 10% discount, and because I work part time for Benefit cosmetics I got another 25% off it. Therefore I only paid €100 for the clarisonic. Which would be the cost of one facial I could of got during the year. Defiantly a good investment. All I have to do is change the facial brush every 3 months.

Why buy the clarisonic? 
While working as the skin care specialist on the cruise ship, I saw alot of skin that could of really looked better. You cant always control your skin. I know.. And not everyone is blessed with clear skin. I know. (my skin isnt clear just so you know) But you certainly can do something to take care of it. Your skin is always changing so it is important to care for it well. Especially when you are young. Because when you are old you will thank yourself.

The clarisonic cleanses your skin up to six times deeper and better than your regular cleanser and cotton. The clarisonic has no vibration or spinning, the sonic method purely works with the skins natural elasticity to thoroughly cleanse the skin.

'The clarisonic leaves your skin softer, smoother, and more radiant looking each day. The sonic method is so gentle you can use it twice a day on all skin types even sensitive'

  1. No.1 cleansing brush recommended by US Dermatolgists
  2. 6 times better than manual cleansing
  3. 60 seconds a day for beautiful looking skin
  4. 300 oscillating movements per second.
  5. Helps skin care products absorb better (My FAV)
  6. Removes all impurities that come between you and smoother, softer and healthier looking skin.

This is the box it came in. You can get different colours as well. I picked white because with this came a free lancomè cleanser and serum worth €90

Here are the products that came with the Mia 2. 6 lancomè advanced Génifique serums, which is the equivalent of the large 30 ml bottle for €70. The cleanser is a wash of Gel Èclat foam. The clarisonic  30ml bottle is also a cleansing gel which comes with all clarisonics.

Heres the travel case it comes in. Great for me because I travel alot.

You just pop the case to the side and it opens (took me awhile to get this!)

And here we have it! The magic amazing and result driven hand held clarisonic
There are different speeds.
It turns off itself
It needs to be charged for 24hrs before use.
The charger is magnetic. You just sit the machine on top of the circular charger and it beeps to let you know its charging(took me awhile to figure that out!)

Now there are a few different types of clarisonics. One for the face, one for the face and body and a travel size one. I picked the Mia 2 which is the Face one and its perfect for me. Take a look online and see which might suit you.

Remove eye makeup if wearing it with a cotton pad
Apply foaming cleanser to face with some water
Start using the clarisonic on the forehead moving it around, it beeps to tell u move to cheek, other cheek,chin and neck. SO easy and your skin will feel so smooth!!!

These are so easy to use, iv been using mine only for 2 days now and I see a difference already! 
(so there is a little light shining in from my window on the right pic but still my skin looked way brighter)

Okay, So excuse the little pose here on the left! But this pic was taken Friday (Left Pic) before I even used my clarisonic.this pic  You can see the bumps I'm talking about under my skin. It just  looks awful. (I am wearing some mascara and my brows are filled in- which obviously Im not wearing in the pic on the right. But this pic was taken right now few minutes ago. Im wearing zero product, I haven't even washed my face yet (lazy Sunday!!!) but you can see the glow... Ok the bumps will not go over night but I am happy with what this clarisonic is doing to my skin after only 2 uses- first use yesterday (sat morn) and last night before bed.) ill do an update in 4 weeks to see how these bumps are doing. Because your skin produces new cells every 28 days so lets wait and see.!

Any questions let me know below:-) 

Happy Sunday, &

Happy Cleansing!
