If you’ve been reading Lipstiq consistently, you’d know that I started using the Clarisonic Mia 2 Deep Pore Decongesting Solution Kit a while ago. Never heard of the Clarisonic? This rechargeable professional skin cleansing tool uses the miracle of sonic technology to efficiently reduce the size of pores and transform the skin, leaving it flawless, radiant and smooth. Oscillating at over 300 movements per second, the brush works wonderfully to deep cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing way more sebum, dirt and debris than manual cleansing ever could.
To learn more about the entire kit, my skin type and the dual action solution, click on the topics, which will take you to my previous posts. As for today, I’m going to share with you a little more about the sonic cleansing technology that the Clarisonic offers.
Cleaning six times better than hands alone, the Clarisonic Sonic method is a combination of patented sonic devices and state-of-the-art skincare formulas that are clinically proven to deliver professional results at home. It oscillates between 200 to 350 movements per second, working with the skin’s natural elasticity to beautifully transform skin’s texture and appearance.
With oil, debris, makeup and perspiration clogging our skin, our skin may look unhealthy, feel rough, and become irritated. Hence, the Clarisonic Sonic method helps to break down this barrier to loosen dirt and oil, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming the skin to better absorb treatments and products.
As you can see according to the diagram below, Clarisonic has run a clinical study to attest its effectiveness:
It’s been three weeks since the first time I got my hands on this powerful skincare tool, so find out how my skin is reacting to it below!
Results After Week 3
In the photos above, I only used a very light layer of BB cream and completed my makeup without any concealer just so you can see the comparison of my skin with and without makeup. My imperfections are still peeking through and currently, I have hormonal zits on my right cheek as well as my forehead.
I don’t use the Clarisonic everyday, but I use it three to four times a week without fail. I’ve become pretty dependent on my Clarisonic and I look forward to using it all the time, just because I know it works.
When I’m in a rush nowadays, I wouldn’t go through the hassle of putting on an entire face of makeup. I’d step out of the house with only a little concealer to cover up any prominent zits. I guess you could say that I’m way more confident about my skin right now.
It just looks and feels better overall. My pores really do look smaller, I don’t get much redness anymore, my skin is smoother and less bumpy, my skin tone is more even, and my skin has more glow. I take great pride in caring for my skin, so I’m definitely happy with the results thus far and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to manual cleansing alone.
Of course, it wasn’t Clarisonic alone that has done wonders on my skin. With the use of the Clarisonic, skincare products that I apply absorb way better and I believe that this powerful absorption has also contributed to the healthy appearance of my skin. Right now, I can truly experience the maximum effectiveness of all these products I apply, thanks to the Clarisonic.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, the Clarisonic has helped to improve the appearance of my chicken pox scars. Now, I’ve also noticed that my smile lines are less visible. Yeay! 🙂
Check back next week to find out more about my experience with the Clarisonic!
