My Skin Care Secret
Today’s topic is skin care! Yaaay! Let’s jump right into it. Why is it that we can easily spend hundreds of dollars on makeup, but for some reason we have a hard time spending any amount of money on great skin care products. The way I see it is, our makeup application will only look as good as our skin will allow. The truth is I have spent hundreds of dollars on different products including face treatments like a chemical peel (J Lo glow!), but the best thing my face has ever experienced is a Clarisonic. I decided to upload photos of me without makeup on and zero editing for this post. I can’t stress how much my skin has drastically changed since I started using this device. Walking outside with no makeup on never felt so good!
What’s a Clarisonic you ask? It’s a gentle cleansing device that oscillates (a fancy word for moving back and forth) 300 movements per second to cleanse pores and wash away those yucky impurities. Does that sound impressive? It cleanses skin 6x better than our hands alone. 6 TIMES! Not convinced yet? It allows product to absorb 61% better than not using a Clarisonic. 61%! Are you sold yet? It’s the number 1 recommended cleansing device by professionals. The best part is, it only takes 60 seconds a day to feel and see results (consistency is key). I use my device twice a day (morning and night) for best results.
My friends at Clarisonic have *upgraded me from my original Mia 1 (that I’ve had for years) to the new Mia FIT. I’m especially gaga over this product because it’s travel sized and fits right in my carry on! You guys know I travel light, read my travel post here. When it comes to products that I like to use with my Clarisonic, the options are endless. I list my top two cleansers (and bonus products) here. The device comes with a brush head that will last for 3 months. It’s made of soft, non-porous bristles meaning it doesn’t harbor bacteria and can air dry in between uses. You should aim to change the brush head 4 times a year. There are several brush heads so be sure to choose the one that best suits your skin.
The Clarisonic device *shouldn’t cause your skin to break out. If you do happen to notice a few breakouts after using the device, it should subside with regular use. For extra precaution you can consult a *dermatologist if you feel unsure about using the Clarisonic device or if you have any questions about using the system.
For the love of GOD, do not ever fall asleep with your makeup on. The thought alone just makes my skin crawl. I promise you, if you start using a Clarisonic device you will race to the sink or shower (it’s waterproof) out of pure excitment to wash your makeup off before bedtime! Treat yourself to a gift from the skin gods and purchase your brand new Clarisonic device here. Your future self with thank you for it.

Thank you for sharing you’re skin care Secret 🙂 Great info I Will be definitely looking into it .
I hope so! It’s absolutely worth it!
My face gets reaaaaaallllyyyyy oily by the end of the day… I use the oil absorbing sheets to see how much is actually on my face and every time the entire sheet is covered in oil on my face. Do you think it’d be worth a try on oily skin to eliminate it?
Well if you have oily skin, then you have oily skin. Our skin type is determined by our genes, so using a Clarisonic won’t change that. However, it would be a great thing to use to help keep your pores clean and allow products that are specific to oily skin penetrate better. I hope that made sense!
GIRL! YOU are so naturally beautiful!!!! I absolutely love this post you look adorable and now I clearly need that little guy for travelling!
GIRLFRIEND! You are the sweeeeetest ever, and yes it is a must! I promise <3!
Yes I have been waiting for this post, I think you just talked me into getting one I’m so excited! I get minor breakouts nothing serious so I hope this helps! I wish I could do a natural face as well as you can, you look flawless! Love you girl!!!
I’m so happy you like the post! Oh girl, after using the Clarisonic you’ll want to show of that glow!
I am absolutely saving up for this little device! I have the cheap look-a-likes but not the same results. Even if I have to wait until Christmas lol ^.*
Haha, it’s worth the wait! I promise you!
I absolutely LOVE your skin!! May I ask how long have you been using it for? And which brush head do you recommend?
Hello Joanne! Thanks for writing me. I’ve been using a Clarisonic for about 3-4 years and I’m addicted. It’s kinda like when you start using an electric toothbrush, you get used to the feeling of ultra freshness! Then a regular manual toothbrush just doesn’t do it for you anymore. It’s totally the same thing!
I personally use the normal brush head because I have normal skin. There are different types for different skin types, be sure you review them all before you purchase and find the one best suited for you!
I hope this helped =)!
Thank you so much for sharing! I am on my way to purchase this product! What products do you use to exfoliate your face? Is there a product line that you highly recommend or a natural recipe? I can’t seem to find a product that does the work :/
Thanks for your message. I use so many different types of products, it’s hard to know where to start. I use a ton of Zo Medical products and The Body Shop has a great new skin care collection. You should check it out. I’m working on putting together a beauty haul with my fav products! Stay tuned!
