I finally got a Clarisonic. I wanted to see what the hype was all about (and since I just found out I had lupus, retail therapy is all I have).
Grey is my color of choice because I can’t stand seeing dirt marks appear on my beauty gadgets.
I got the Pro model because I wanted the body brush and attachment. I really don’t want to spend that much money on my face alone.
The package came with the following:
- Cleansers (which I gave away)
- Body handle (which I end up not using, since I don’t use it on my back)
- Regular face brush
- Body brush
The first time I used the Clarisonic on my face, the first word that came to mind was “meh.” It was definitely underwhelming. I was expecting some rigorous action, not the soft massaging pulse.
The second time, I did notice that my skin felt smoother – but only immediately right after. The feeling was temporary, but it felt good just the same.
I just ordered the deep pore replacement brush which hopefully will remove some of the “meh.” (By the way, just found out Amazon is the worst place to buy replacement heads. Most are fakes.)
I have been using Clarisonic more often on my body, too. Ironically, I stopped using the body brush handle, since the only place I can’t reach is my back, and I don’t see any reason to use it there. Plus, the body handle can get quite slippery when soapy. As with the face, there’s a fleeting smooth feeling after using it.
It would probably take 2 to 3 months of use for me to finally get the verdict of how useful this gadget is. In the meantime, my reco would be to buy only if you have the disposable income to do so.
