Clarasonic Mia White

I purchased my Clarasonic about 2 months ago from and managed to buy it for £108 with discount codes and free shipping to Ireland. To begin, let me tell you about my skin type. I have skin equivalent to a cornflake the minute water touches it it goes all dry and flakey! Nothing seems to remove my dry skin, exfoliators just seem to annoy it and make it drier and no matter what cream I apply I still manage to get these incessant dry patches on my nose and forehead. But no dry patches are not enough to contend with I also am prone to cystic acne that lovely kind that I refer to as "underground spots" the lumps that appear and take over a week to disappear. If I apply any lotion to these the dry patches act up even worse than before leaving me in somewhat of a predicitment. 

So now you understand why I was interested in the Clarasonic I thought that the gentle exfoliation would remove the flakes and my skin would be perfect. Previously I have tried the Body Shop exfoliated brush and found it good but for some reason I thought the Clarasonic would be better and it was one of these items I just had to try. Now I do love my Clarasonic and when push comes to shove I don't think id part with it but the first few weeks of the so called "purging" was a form of torture!! I have never had so many spots in my life and not just pimples the underground spots came in groups to invade my face! And it seemed to last forever :( Thankfully they have gone now but only after I stopped using my Clarasonic for a week!

I have started using it again now same as before just to cleanse my face at night time with Lush Ultra Bland (holy grail skincare for me) and thankfully I have seemed to gone passed the 'purging' stage and my skin is behaving. I haven't noticed any improvement on blackheads or a reduction in my pore size but I am content enough with the flake free smooth skin it leaves me with. Finally I do enjoy the effects of the Clarasonic but it I lost it I do not think I would pay £108 to replace it when the Body Shop brush does a pretty similar job.  

If you have any questions for me please do not hesitate to ask xxx
