It looks like a giant toothbrush, because, well, it is.
Yes, the Clarisonic is brought to you by the same people who invented the Sonicare electric toothbrush. They bumped up the size, gave it softer bristles, and hey presto: one of the greatest skincare invention of our time.
It’s one of those products that you either love, or haven’t heard about yet. Since we’re giving away 2 Clarisonic MIAs at the moment, I thought I’d share with you my top 6 reasons you NEED a Clarisonic in your life…
1. Removes 6x more make-up and 2x more dirt than ordinary cleansing
It’s gonna get your skin clean. I’m talking clean, clean. The massaging movements opens your pores, while the bristles clean deep down to remove dirt and make-up. If you think you’re having problems with your make-up causing break outs, it probably isn’t your foundation’s fault, but your cleansing routine.
2. Removes impurities to let your moisturiser work its magic
If there’s dirt and oil in the way, your moisturiser can’t do what it does best. By removing this layer of muck, and opening your pores, your moisturiser and serum will have a better chance of getting deep into your skin and doing their hydrating voodoo/ magic.
3. Boosts circulation with gentle sonic cleansing massage – 300 movements per second
That’s a LOT of movement. Experts recommend boosting circulation to the skin by massaging it with your hands for 5 minutes. 5 MINUTES? Who has that kind of time? With the Clarisonic, your skin will get a circulation boosting massage in only 60 seconds. And it feels lovely.
4. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Around the age of 20 your skin will stop producing collagen, which is what makes your skin elastic and supple. Now, before you take to the bathroom floor and start weeping about your lost youth, there is something you can do. Maintaining good blood flow and keeping skin hydrated are some of the best ways to keep skin looking young and banish those fine lines!
5. Gentle enough to use twice a day
The bristles are unbelievably soft, so you don’t have to worry about drying out your skin or over-cleansing. We recommend you don’t use any abrasive cleansers with your Clarisonic, – the soft bristles are enough to gently exfoliate the top layer of skin without irritating it.
6. Minimises the appearance of pores.
