I’m going to complete my Clarisonic skin journey series today. It’s been about 3 weeks since I last updated and a lot has changed since that update and not for good sadly. So today I’m going to close out the series with my final thoughts.
i have been enjoying the Clarisonic over the last 5 weeks, but I’m really starting to think it’s not for me. This might not make sense since my 2 updates were so positive, but I started to notice some not so positive elements over the last 3 weeks. Going back to why I originally got the Clarisonic, I originally got it solely for some texture on my cheeks. I was hopeful that over time of using this it would address that, since there was really nothing else I got it for. Although it hadn’t addressed that, I had no issue being patient. I started to notice around Easter that the bumps that were nothing more than texture, were now very sore and itchy. So I figured I’d been overdoing it using it every day and I stopped using it for a few days when I wasn’t wearing makeup anyway. Well the soreness and itchiness cleared up right away, but I figured using it occasionally should be fine.
Now it seems like I can’t use this at all without it making the texture more noticeable along with sore and itchy. I thought about maybe getting a softer brush head, but if it’s even more gentle I don’t see it addressing the initial problem I got it for. So as much as I enjoyed this, I just don’t think it’s the right product for me. For someone who has actual acne that they’d like to clear, then maybe this would be more suitable but it just didn’t tackle my issue. I did enjoy this and it is still a great product with many success stories behind it, but just not mine. It sucks because I had such high hopes and I initially felt great about it, but if it’s making my skin irritated and not improving it, I don’t see a reason to keep it. I did like this to remove my makeup, but with it’s price tag I can’t justify keeping it just for that, even if I did get a softer brush head. It’s bizarre because it makes the rest of my skin soft, but irritates my cheeks. I even tried less time on my cheeks but that didn’t solve the issue either.
So I will continue to hunt for a product that can address my skin bumps/texture. My hope is that it will clear on it’s own like it has in the past so fingers crossed for that. But, if anyone has any suggestions for products please let me know. Despite my experience I wouldn’t deter anyone from purchasing a Clarisonic, as everyone is different.
Anyway that wraps up my experience with the Clarisonic! Despite the fact that it didn’t end like I’d hope it was still good to try it as I’ve wanted to forever. Let me know your experience down below!
Bye for now!
