My Magic (Skincare) Wand!Posted on: April 14, 2015 by Yummo Mummo
This little wondrous baby has been on my wish list for quite a while. I wanted the Clarisonic because I truly believe the more attention I pay to my skin, helping keep it at optimal moisture and cleanse, it will age better and I will be SO grateful in my much later years. The price point was why it remained on my wish list but I finally thought, ‘Heck, I’m worth it!’ (as are you!). When it comes to the health and well being of my aging skin, I don’t want to skimp.
I chose the Clarisonic Mia 1 at Sephora // $99 // Variety of colors. Waterproof. 1 speed. Oscillating head.
To quote Clarisonic “Unlike spinning devices, our patented sonic cleansing technology works with skin’s natural elasticity,oscillating at a sonic frequency that produces over 300 movements per second. The resulting flexing action created between the outer and inner brushes works to loosen dirt and oil, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming skin to better absorb topical treatments”.
The Mia 1 comes with a charger and a cleanser sample. It can be used for all skin types including acne prone, aging (me!), large pores and sensitive skin.
Although it comes with a cleanser, any cleanser can be used as long as it does not have granules or is abrasive I have religiously used the Origins Checks and Balances // $21 // in the shower for years, as does my hubby, so I put a dollop of this on the Clarisonic and cleanse away.
The Clarisonic times out after one minute. I make sure to go all over my neck too. The oscillating bristles feel very soft. From the first time I used the Clarisonic, my face felt squeaky clean. And when I applied my usual routine of Josie Maran Argan Oil after the shower, I could just feel it soaking so beautifully into my skin.
Some YummoMummo tips:
- Don’t overuse the recommended once a day; overuse can lead to broken capillaries, dry skin etc.
- Clean the brush as instructed to get rid of any germs, debris build up, bacteria.
- Don’t share with family or friends; cross contamination of bacteria.
Have you used the Clarisonic or similar? Yay or Nay?
