3 Months with Clarisonic

Since the Sephora VIB sale starts tomorrow I thought it would be a great time to talk about my Clarisonic experience. I'm lucky that my acne has never been really really horrible but to me it was bad enough and I felt like I had tried everything and it would just be something I'd have to deal with.
Some days I don't wear makeup to the store. Normally around holidays when I'm more focused on other things. In the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, one person a week would comment on how bad my skin was and it was so hurtful. I knew I had bad skin;there's no need to point it out. After about the eighth time hearing this I broke down at my desk. I had heard about skin brushes and thought I'd try them out. My mom got me the Olay Pro-x brush just to make sure I liked using a skin brush. I tried it for a few weeks and I knew I wanted something more serious. 
In the first week of January I went to Sephora and got the Clarisonic MIA 2. I picked the Mia 2 because  I liked the timer. In the beginning I used it with my Clearisil Acne Wash. Once my acne really started to clear up I started using Philosphy's Purity Made Simple. It's a very gentle cleanser. I use the sensitive brush head.
This is after 3 weeks. My skin really started to clear up. This was a stressful week and my skin didn't show it. I also noticed that my skin has gotten was less oily.
This is where my skin is now. I've been using it about 3 months. I'm still not perfect at my skincare routine. Sometimes I skip using it when I get home really late. I love my Clarisonic. It has completely transformed my skin. I wasn't wearing makeup the other day and I was told my skin was glowing! I never thought any one would say that to me.  I'm really happy with it after 3 months. If you are on the fence I think you should take the plunge especially if there is a sale. I still break out but my skin actually seems good now. 
Let me know if you have anymore questions about Clarisonic and I'll get back to you and I'll keep you guys updated with my skin's progress.

I'd like to get the Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick during the sale. I also like the regular Melted's I have peony.

I'm so sorry that someone said that to you. As someone who also struggles with acne, I can't imagine how I would react in a similar situation. Anyways, I'm glad to hear the clarisonic is working out for you! I also use the philosophy cleanser and agree it works like a dream :) Your skin really is glowing!

This is a great review, and it's clear that it really does work! I've never tried a clarisonic before but I have heard really good things. I think I'd struggle with keeping up with it consistently though.
