My Clarisonic

Day 3 with my Clarisonic

Day one I didn't really see any changes. My skin is a bit softer but thats it. I kinda felt like the brush head irritated my skin a bit but after 5 min my skin felt fine. I'm still getting new zits but not as many as I used too. By day three i noticed that my zits go away slightly faster and they are smaller and less inflamed. My skin feels healthier. I noticed a change in skin texture and color. I have less desire to pop my zits because they aren't irritated and swollen. I also feel like i don't have to wear as much makeup and it last longer. I used to feel like my skin was rough and dirty no matter how i washed it. when i wore makeup i felt like i had a thick layer of gunk over my face even if it was good Foundation. Now, My skin feels plump and soft. My acne isn't all the way gone but i have hope for the future. I read in a few reviews that after about a week most people decide to cut down use to once a day. I decided to start using my regular face wash (chetaphil) in the morning and using the Clarisonic at night. I was using 10% BP while I wait for my 2.5% but it is defiantly way to strong. I recently found a Retin-a alternative online that was developed for people who don't have medical care. Its called Help Me from Philosophy. If you can't afford buying a Clarisonic here are some alternatives Pertika sonic dermabrasion brush Soft head disposable electric tooth brush DDF Revolve Sephora skin brush Bliss Stimulator Shiseido skin care cleansing brush I use: Spot treatment BP DDF Matte moisturizer Chetaphil Hope this helps!

So I bought the Clarisonic....

SO a little bit about me....I am 21 and have had acne for as long as i can remember. I have moderate acne with lots and lots of red spots. I also have ridiculously oily skin. When I was around 17 i finally convinced my mom to take me to a dermatologist. It had gotten to the point where i refused to go outside and had such low self-esteem that I didn't understand how anyone could ever be around me. I was prescribed Retin-a, Minocycline and a BP cream. It was amazing how well it worked. Unfortunately this was short lived. About a year later my acne came back worse than ever. I was in the military and this severely limited the medications that were available to me. Acne wasn't really considered a big deal and it was something i just had to live with. I tried everything. Nothing worked. I recently got out of the military and i thought that because my stress level would drastically go down my skin would get better. No such luck. Now that am looking for a new job I felt that my acne would make it harder for me to get a bartenting job. I started to get depressed again and getting really frustrated because of my skin. I felt like i had tried everything possible and started thinking i would have acne forever... But then i found The Clarisonic. I want to do everything that i can to help people in the same position as me so i decided to start this blog.
