Clarisonic Mia Review @ 1 week
November 16, 2012 § 4 Comments
So it’s been a week since I got Clarisonic Mia and I’ve been using it every night. The sales representative at Sephora told me not to use it everyday in the beginning because my skin might react to it; however, my skin has been really good with the Clarisonic and hasn’t been sensitive or anything.
So here is how my skin looks as of now. You can enlarge the photo by clicking on it. (Warning! Won’t be a pleasant view!)
I’ve been having majour break-outs for about 2-3 weeks now. You can see my chin has a lot of red spots, which are the acne scars that I recently acquired (Boooo). I don’t know what the cause of the break-outs but I think it’s hormonal and I haven’t been getting enough sleep due to constant baby movement.
When I bought the Clarisonic, I had a really big zit on my chin that was ready to pop. I know, it’s gross right? I also had many small acne developing on my chin that are red and sore. So I wan’t sure if using Clarisonic was a good idea, because I was afraid it will pop the acne and damage the skin more. Well, I was way too excited to hold myself back so I used it anyways. (NOT recommended for everyone! Do not try this if you have severe acne problem…) As result, my almost exploding zit did not break and it did not irritate my skin at all! I was really happy and I continued to use Clarisonic every night after that.
During past 1 week, I did have to squeeze some of my pimple clean (eww) because they were way too painful. Again, this is not recommended because you have much higher chance of getting acne scar and contaminate nearby skin to have even more acne if you squeeze them. It is a bad habit that I just have to live with… With the help of Clarisonic, which I’ve been using with Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, I think my acne is somewhat under control now. I haven’t been getting as much acne as 2 weeks ago and those that I get are much smaller now. I also changed my skin serum from a hydrating serum to a skin regenerating serum, which seems like helping in combination with Clarisonic.
So far, I’m really loving Clarisonic because it cleanse my face really clean without stripping my skin. I will keep using it and keep you guys posted.
