Clarisonic and Clean

After some time trying out my beauty products provided to me, courtesy of Santa, I have lots of reviews for all you Makeup Lovers out there! Today's topic of discussion will be my favorite and most exciting gift: the Clarisonic skin care brush.

I had heard really good things about it and I really wanted to get something that I could use every day for healthier skin. I hate having dry patches (though we already know how oily I am) and using my Clean and Clear benzoyl peroxide wash twice a day. I've come to feel that although benzoyl peroxide works the best on me, I shouldn't use it more than once a day to prevent unnecessary drying, which in turn overproduces oil.

I love the Clarisonic skin care brush. It only takes one minute out of my shower each day. It's waterproof and easy to use. Just press the button and you are instantly on your way to healthier skin. The brush times your intervals accordingly and beeps when each interval is up: 20 seconds for your forehead; 20 seconds for the nose and chin; and 10 seconds a piece for each cheek. Use the various cleansers for your skin type that come with the package and are available in larger sizes at Sephora. Once you rinse your face after you've finished, you will notice how soft and smooth it feels. In the three weeks that I've been using the Clarisonic skin care brush, I've noticed a decrease in acne and blackheads, which is certainly due to the good cleansing power the brush has. It really gets into those pores!

This is a great way to nurture your skin and since it's waterproof, you can do it in the shower. Why not start on your face as you wait for the water to warm up? This saves a bit of water and time for you. It's great!

I know the Clarisonic skin care brush is a bit pricey at $195, but I feel like it's totally worth it. Like I've said before, I think taking care of your skin is one of the most important parts of your beauty regimen. If you have glowing, healthy skin, everything else will certainly fall into place. Check out the Clarisonic skin care brush soon!
