    I bought a Clarisonic Mia about 8 months ago. I was so excited to try it because I heard great things about it. It honestly hasn’t done anything for my skin. I still have acne and decent sized pores. It’s a waste of money in my opinion..but everyone’s different and some people really do like it.

    I have the Clarisonic Pro and I like it; don’t use it every time you wash your face….. I use it with the Fresh Soy Cleanser and it does a good job. I like the squeaky clean/silky soft feeling it leaves my skin afterwards. I believe if you do a search on Sephora you can see tons of reviews there. πŸ™‚

    I bought the cheaper Olay version of the device. I found that I didn’t use it all the time, so it’s good I didn’t spend the money on the expensive one. Honestly, when I did use it, I didn’t see a huge difference, though the Olay cleanser that came with it is good by itself. It’s a very gentle exfoliator.

    I was going to start a thread about this! Glad you did, @ecomaha:!

    I have blackheads. Anyone see any differences there?

    Since you mention that TTC is the source of your skin issues, I don’t think a Clarisonic is what you need. It doesn’t do anything for hormonal acne since it works on your skin and hormonal acne isn’t really caused by clogged pores and whatnot.

    Things that help with my hormonal acne are diet changes (I seriously cut down on my consumption of soy. Other people have had success with modifying the dairy and/or meat in their diet), using gentle products, moisturizing my skin twice a day, and keeping my hands away from my face. I swear by using raw honey as a morning face “wash”, Cerave or Purpose face wash at night, and Cerave moisturizer every morning and night.

    @ecomaha:  Honestly those are overpriced things you will never use. Get yourself an exfoliating glove and an alcohol free cleanser, MUCH cheaper. My favortie is Peter Thomas Roth Foaming Cleanser.

    I use mine a lot and it makes a real difference to me, but I’m not going to pretend that everyone will have the same results.

    @mrselopement i did! and i started using this random product from asia called St. Clairs Sebum treatment set. Google it and you’ll find lots of blog reviews.It does WONDERS. I use it every few weeks after I use the Clarisonic.

    I bought one, thinking it would help my chin especially, but it turns out my skin is FAR too sensitive to use.  It just dries out my face really badly and makes it generally unhappy.  Not worth it.  If acne is a serious issue, I’d talk with a dermotologist before buying a clarisonic (although what my dermotologist had me try is also drying my face out terribly, but at least I can discuss options with her!)

    I have a Clarisonic and I love it!  I had bought the cheaper Olay one first and it worked ok but it died on me after about 6 weeks.  I pulled the trigger and bought the Clarisonic Pro (or Plus not sure which one) and it has made such a huge difference in my skin. 

    I use the sensitive skin brush heads and also use their cleansers…the one for sesitive skin and also the one for dry skin.  Occassionaly, I use the oily skin cleaner in the summer time.  I also love the body brush head.  I’ve seen such a huge difference in my skin’s texture.

    I should say that I don’t really have acne problems…I just found my skin to be a bit dull looking so that was the main reason I bought it.  I love Clarisonic so much I bought the Opal to use on my fine lines and I’ve been using it for a month and have already noticed it working.

    I have the Mia 2. I would not have purchased it for myself (my skincare routine was… adequate) but my mother randomly bought it for me. I started using it the 2nd week of August, so it’s been about a month. Also, I use a Clean & Clear cream cleanser.

    Week 1: Honestly, no difference in skin appearance or texture. Blemishes (I have decent skin, so this would be 1 or 2 spots) remained the same. I started using it morning and night on day 3.

    Week 2: As predicted, skin freaked out. Lasted for about 8 days in my case, but I attribute it to combination of the deep exfoliation, new cleanser, and beginning of season change. It was not a pretty week, but it wasn’t *that* bad.

    Week 3: Skin cleared. Still no big difference, BUT I did start to enjoy how quickly I washed my face — it’s just a minute, very thorough, and easy to do.

    Week 4: Holy crap, the difference! I *finally* saw the glowing, even-toned, smooth skin everyone says you’ll get. My facial products are more effective, my skin looks great, and I’m addicted.

    Week 5: Ditto to week 4 and still going strong. I still get an occasional blemish, but I expected that. I really never expected to see anything change, and it was a total shock that I could notice how much better my skin looks now. 

    Overall, I’m happy I stuck with it and continued to use it as long as I did before giving up. It certainly won’t hurt your skin (especially if you’re gentle and use the right products with it) and for me, at least, it did eventually work out. I would say it was worth (my mother’s) money πŸ˜€

    It has totally changed my skin. I used to break out constantly. But once I started using this once or twice a day, along with Hope in a Jar moisturizer… my angry skin just calmed down and now I rarely have problems. πŸ™‚ It’s not for everyone, but it did wonders for me.

    best thing i have ever done for my skin hands down. don’t use it twice a day though.. too much exfoliation for your skin.
