Skin care necessity.
After begging, my boyfriend had bought me this at Sephora for my 22nd birthday (2010). I've read and watch tons of reviews on this thing being a miracle worker - it shrank pores, it cleared skin of acne, it evened out complexions, it diminished fine lines, it erased hyperpigmentation, discolorations, and scarring, etc. For me, it didn't do any of that.
But here's what it does do for me: It smoothes my skin's texture for soft, velvety skin. It cleanses my pores of dirt, oils, and makeup. It leaves me feeling squeaky clean. I experience less breakouts than before I started using Clarisonic. It leaves my face looking bright and youthful. It is by no means a miracle, but I can honestly tell you that this is the best shape my skin has been in since my pregnancy.
In high school I had pretty good skin. Since being pregnant with my daughter my skin hasn't been on its best behavior. I've been breaking out a lot more, thus gaining some new "friends", a gang actually called acne scarring on the left side of my face. Part of it is my fault for picking on them, I should have just left them alone, maybe they wouldn't have branded me when they left so I wouldn't forget.
Overall, this tool is definitely a staple in my skin care routine. I have tough skin, so I use this with the brush head for normal skin. I love my Clarisonic, and when it has vibrated its last minute of cleansing, I will definitely buy a new one. :)
