I’m pretty sure that most of us have a few beauty related products/items in mind they’d love to have. To me, the Clarisonic was always on top of that list. For some reason it fascinated me, and all those positive reviews I read just made me want it more! However, the price stopped me from getting it for a long, long time. After a lot of thinking and ''but which one should I get?'' conversations with people who will probably start to cringe now when they hear the word Clarisonic, I decided to get the Clarisonic PRO in pink. I definitely wanted something I could use on my body as well. My legs tend to feel really dry, ingrown hairs started to become a bit of a regular thing and on top of that I bruise very easily as well. I was really curious if the Clarisonic could make a difference. When it comes to my face I do have very sensitive skin but it's soft and I only have an occasional break-out, so not a lot to complain about. I’m incredibly lazy when it comes to removing my make-up though, so letting the Clarisonic do all the hard work sounded pretty good to me. I secretly hoped (well, still hope) that it would help me to age
less wrinkly gracefully as well!
I've been using the Clarisonic PRO for about 3 weeks now, it's still too early for a proper review but that will definitely follow in the future! I can't wait to compare the before and after pictures, but until then I want to give this nifty little beauty tool all the time it needs to make my skin look fabulous. (Yup Clarisonic, high price tag = high expectations!). Anyways, today I'll talk about the set I bought and my thoughts so far.
Fresh Water Valley . I'm not sure what went wrong because I ordered a set with an extension handle (really wanted a pink one, and that was the only set available at the time) but I got the holiday set in stead. Which I don't mind at all to be honest, because the holiday set comes with an adorable travel bag and another tube of body polish! At the moment both sets are available I believe, although I'm not sure how much longer the holiday set will be in stock. I'm just happy they sent me the wrong one ;)
The Clarisonic PRO is waterproof and meant for the face and the body, it has 4 speeds and an extra body setting.
I especially like to use this on my shoulder/neck area after a long day at work. I think it also does something for my bruises, but I’m not certain yet. Hopefully the before & after pictures will make that clear when I write the actual review. Besides that, it seems the amount of ingrown hairs have decreased as well.
Well, I do have to add that I found ways to get a better result. The first two weeks I applied the face wash right in the center, but it seems to clean my face a lot better when you apply it more towards the black circle. At first I didn't like the fastest speed so I sticked to the second setting, but now that I've been using the PRO for a while the heavier vibrations don't scare me anymore, so I'm using the fourth setting at the moment. This also seems to do a better job!
Not sure if it's interesting to see, but this is what the brush looks like now, about a month later. They say make-up can stain it, I'm glad mine still looks fairly white!
Unfortunately I can't really say anything about the skincare products because I'm not using them at the moment.
I usually leave my Clarisonic in the cradle, once it's fully charged it lasts me about 2 weeks (I use the face brush every night and the body brush twice a week). Awesome!
I love the travel bag, it's water-resistant and the print is pretty cute as well.
Cute but not too girly :)
Absolutely love the zipper, such a nice detail!
And it's definitely big enough to store the Clarisonic and a lot of skin care products!
To make a long story short, I'm still a tiny little skeptical about the Clarisonic, especially the face brush. Although maybe my expectations were too high to begin with, a lot of girls treat this as their holy grail so I secretly expected a bit of a miracle. Although it's also possible that there wasn't much to improve I suppose, although I do find that a little hard to believe...I like to think that you can always do something to help improve the condition of your skin. I didn't get any comments about my skin either, only my significant other mentioned a glow but I can't really count that can I? However, I still have a long way to go! Who knows, maybe I'll see an (amazing) improvement in my skin once I compare the before and after pictures. I'm already loving the body brush (it feels lovely and that one does seem to improve the condition of my skin) so I definitely don't feel as if I wasted all my money.
Well, I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post! What do you use to clean your skin/remove your make-up?
