clarisonic is my friend.

Thursday, September 1, 2011


do you use a clarisonic? i recently splurged on one a few months ago and i swear i have a new face.

it works like a sonic-care toothbrush by getting your face clean from the inside out. read: fewer break-outs, smaller pores. in addition to my other sworn beauty regimen, i think i have it down to a science. funny how that took me 27 years to figure out.

I have not heard one single bad review about this product. I've been so tempted to get it, but it's the price that's holding me back! I think I need to just wrap my head around it and then I'll make the plunge.

jillian-
sephora supposedly let's you try it and return if you don't like it. that's how i ended up taking the plunge.

I've always wondered if clarisonic actually works... it's nice to hear a good review of it :)

Jesse said...

i've been very curious about this....

I have one and love it!!

Rebeka said...

I'm 24 and I still haven't figured it out. My skin is rebelling against me all the time. I figured by the time I was in my mid twenties I wouldn't be breaking out anymore. WRONG. How awful. I'll have to give this a try...

nicole said...

How much are they? You've *almost* sold me on this, girl... my pores need minimizing, for sure.

rebecca said...

nicole-
$150 for the regular one. there is a super high speed clarisonic you can use on your body for more moola. i feel like i just turned my blog into an info-mercial (sp?) but i figure i should share the knowledge.

Heather said...

I may have to give this a try -- sounds great!

Rebecca - I have problem skin which I have reasonably controlled, but it's not beautiful by any means. I'm worried about getting a clarisonic and exacerbating the problem rather than making it better ( ... a punishment for wanting too much from my acne prone skin.)

Was it one of those "gets worse before it gets better" things? or was it a smooth transition?

(p.s. your photo comment is hilarious)

sam-
i certainly didn't have any negative side effects after using the clarisonic. it's just "deep cleaning" your face. for that reason, it helps to clear up your skin since dirt/oil leads to breakouts.

i have pretty normal skin and i can only tell you my experience. you could always try it out for a week and then return it if the store lets you. that's what i did and of course i kept it.

hope that helps.

I've been so curious, too! Glad to hear it's as kick ass as I'd hoped!

Really? it works? I've been so curious about this but I haven't been brave enough to get one. Doesn't it leaves your face red? That's always been my doubt..

rebecca said...

gaby-
no red face. the brush head is really soft so it doesn't cause irritation.

linds.eliz said...

omgosh, you're hilarious. i love reading your posts: short, sweet, and cheeky. love.

and i think i will have to buy one of these things. i almost bought one a few months ago, but i got nervous. thanks for the encouragement!

Audrey said...

Hello. I'm a new reader to your blog and I just had to comment that I recently bought one too. I have always had oily skin with large pores. I've been having more problems lately so I thought this would help. So far the acne hasn't gotten any better but it does seem to clean really well. Some of the reviews I read said you should give it a month to purge everything from your skin sort of like getting a deep cleaning facial.... so we'll see. Happy with it so far but no miracles yet!

Ann said...

Glad to know it works...

ever really paid much attention to these kind of products, I thought they don't do much improvement.

Nice cool post and review ♥

rebecca said...

audrey-
thanks for the input. it's good to know other people's experience based on their skin type, etc.

Ashley said...

Have been really curious about trying this. Might have to check it out...

kitchu said...

soap. water. a bit of lotion my whole life. and i gotta say, i am still told: you look 10 years younger. i guess it's my dad's good genes. i just got lucky.

but i might need this soon since i'm almost, i said ALMOST, okay?... twice your age.

erstwhiledear said...

so does this mean you've continued on with the ACV regimen and believe it?

rebecca said...

erstwhiledear-
i am sold on my ACV regimen. i have noticed my skin is no longer overly oily or dry. it's sort of reached a balance, if that makes sense. with varying skin types, i'm sure results will vary as well.

The Olay skin brush works just as well at 1/3 the price of the entry level Clarisonic from Costco. You get a large supply of skin cleanser with gentle to medium polishing particles AND a spare polishing brush. I have seen very noticeable improvement in the texture and brightness of my very fair and sensitive skin. I use the abrasive cream at night and Aveeno facial cleansing lotion in the morning. Wish I had started this years ago. Check out the Olay products: excellent and well priced. Very good reviews.

Olay spins in a circular motion, clarisonic uses sonic movement not circular, they are very different from eachother. I tried the one that spins, and then I got the clarisonic, no comparison...clarisonic wins hands down. You get what you pay for. That's true for everything.
