My favorite esthetician Kristen (the only one I actually trust to tell me the truth) recommended I get one and I love it. It works well with the cleanser she recommended for my skin and has totally changed the texture of my skin. In fact I love it so much I have given one as a gift to several people.
I have very sensitive skin so I don’t use the Clarisonic every day, every other day works best for me. Some people use it every day, some twice a day, so it depends on your skin and what works best for you.
My skin has never been so clean, soft and smooth. My pores were reduced in size quite significantly; the Clarisonic gets in and really gets the make up off. The odd bumps I had are gone and I wish I’d gotten one sooner.
There is a built in timer so you know when to switch areas and keep things moving along (very handy), before you know it you are finished.
I bought one in pink, but they come in white and grey (for the man in your life). It comes with a charging cradle for the counter top and the handset is waterproof so you can use it in the shower or bath.
Men: the ladies love a man with great skin, so don’t pooh pooh it as a girlie thing, this is a hard working piece of equipment and it looks manly in grey!
The folks at Clarisonic have released a smaller version, maybe for travel? They call it the Mia, I’ve not tried that model but everyone seems to be pleased with it as well. The Mia comes in a several great colors (think yellow, pink, blue, turquoise, and lavender). Plus they have limited edition colors like poppy red and sapphire blue. Think what an amazing gift that would make opening a beauty basket with one of those inside.
Give it a try, it really can make a difference in your skin.
