Clear skin is on the way! -

Clarisonic was recommended to me by my sister, who's had one for a few years. I read plenty of reviews and got a great deal on one from Skin Store.
I've always struggled with mild-moderate acne, and when I woke up on my 28th birthday with a huge zit, it was time to take control. I've used lots of different acne cleansers, and none of them help completely. I bought the Clarisonic Mia with a sensitive brush head, and started using it right away. The brush feels pretty abrasive at first, and left my skin red, but feeling smooth. My face got used to the Clarisonic after a week or so.
After 6 months of using Clarisonic, my face is clear... all the time. I wouldn't say it reduced my pore size or performed any other magic besides clearing my skin, but that is magic! I recently went on a week long camping trip without my Clarisonic and came home with a few blemishes, but after using it again once per day, my skin is clear again. I use it with Philosophy Purity Made Simple, per all the reviews I read.
The only con, is that it can be a bit abrasive on the skin. I don't consider my skin to be particularly sensitive, but when I replaced my brush I switched to the Delicate brush and won't go back. I would recommend the Delicate brush over Sensitive for most skin types. My skin does get a little dry on the cheeks, but I just spot treat with Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer.
