It’s finally fall, which means it’s time for sweaters, boots, and pumpkin everything! Fall also means that my skin is about to take a beating. Why? Because when the weather gets colder, my skin gets worse.
Lucky for me, I was recently gifted Clarisonic’s Mia 1 and it’s become my saving grace this season! I use it twice a day and it’s changed both the look and feel of my skin for the better.
Okay, let’s talk first about the Clarisonic Mia 1 itself. The Mia 1 is an electric face washing device. It’s rechargeable and can plug into your computer for easy overnight charging. The brush head I’ve been using is called the Radiance Brush Head and comes with all Mia 1 devices. Basically, what the Clarisonic does is it moves the bristles of the brush head back and forth in order to clean your pores. I was sent two other brush heads as well, The Acne Brush Head and the Deep Pore Brush Head. Both are great, but my favorite is the classic Radiance Brush! Each brush head should be replaced every three months. The entire device is waterproof, so it’s easy to use in the shower as well!
The cleanser I was sent is Clarisonic’s Pore and Blemish Gel Cleanser. It contains 2% Salicylic Acid and is designed to help people with excessive oil and acne.
Price-wise, the Mia 1 costs $129, the brush heads are $27, and the gel cleanser is $18. While this may seem like a lot up front, Clarisonic offers monthly payment plans upon credit approval! And I have a discount code that I’ll share at the end of this post!
Every morning when I wake up, the first thing I do is head into the bathroom to get ready. I brush my teeth and immediately wash my face with my Clarisonic and gel cleanser for one minute (until the brush shuts off). After, I rinse off the Clarisonic, dry my face, and apply a light moisturizer. If I’m wearing makeup that day, then I apply my makeup before heading out for the day. Super quick and easy!
In the evenings, I come home, remove my makeup with makeup remover, and then use my Clarisonic to wash my face and remove the rest of the oil and dirt from the day. I again apply a moisturizer and then hop into bed!
I’ve been using Clarisonic for about 3 weeks now and I have to say that I am obsessed! I think that my skin is noticeably clearer and it feels so much softer than it did before. I love using my Clarisonic right before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning because it feels like a little, light massage on my face! As far as skincare products go, this one is absolutely a winner.
