I admit that I'm overly protective of my skin. So, trying a beauty tool like the Clarisonic, despite its rave reviews, scared me. Wouldn't those bristles damage my skin and stretch out my pores?
The Clarisonic Aria (Clarisonic.com, $199)
Despite my fears about the Clarisonic being too harsh on my skin, as long as you follow the instructions (it should only graze your skin), you start to notice a difference in your skin in about a week with consistent use. There are also several kinds of brush heads available depending on your specific needs.
That it's cleaning my skin better than my hands ever could without damaging my pores. I feel more confident that my favorite serums and moisturizers are being absorbed to their full potential.
I used it once every night before going to bed. It's been several weeks and it still plays an important role in my skin regimen. It's safe to use twice a day, but I'm a believer that the oils I wake up with are good for skin. I prefer not to wash them off.
I noticed my skin was smoother and more even-toned in about a week to two weeks.
Anyone looking to prevent breakouts, even their skin tone or improve their cleansing results.
You do have to be careful about the consistency of the cleanser or face wash you use. A gel-like product worked best for me, but your experience may vary.
With the Clarisonic Aria versus the Mia model, you get a drying stand and a USB charger that makes it great to travel with! We all need to give our skin extra care after the wear and tear of traveling.
Brush heads will cost $40 for two and they last for quite a while. I'm a month in and my brush head is still going strong.
