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!)

Clarisonic 1 week skin

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.

  • I love posts like these! It would be really awesome to see updates every few weeks. My boyfriend used to have pretty bad acne and for the first few months after getting the Clarisonic, we didn’t see any difference. However, now eight months later, his skin is 80% clearer!

    P.S. Thanks for the follow! I love your blog!

      Thank you for your comment!
      I am planning on updating in about a month next because I am almost at my due date… I did hear many people say that they actually broke out because of Clarisonic during the 1st month, but it gets better after a while. It’s definitely something you’ll have to keep up with.

  • Nice! I reciently got a clarisonic too but haven’t tried it yet since i’m trying some other stuff and using them together might be too much (i’m using retinol so i think that’d be caotic).
    Love to hear it’s working!

      Thank you for your comment! Yeah, I was told not to use any other abrasive facial product with this. I haven’t been using scrub too. Hopefully you’ll like it 🙂
