Where do I even begin. When it comes to products that we try and they become life changing, it almost becomes hard to put the changes into words. I’ve tried other cleansing brushes and they all annoyed me. I’d end up with water spraying all over me, the mirror and anything else within 3 feet of me. They would stop working and would only start again once I gave it a few good whacks. Needless to say I was hesitant at first to try Clarisonic’s Classic skin cleansing system. If you ever looked closely at my skin, i’m notoriously dry and flaky. I’ve tried millions of things, but nothing seems to change it long term. They’re all quick fixes. The Classic skin cleansing system comes in either white, pink or grey and is paired with three of their cleansers. They allow you to try out 1 oz. trial sizes of Refreshing Gel Cleanser, Gentle Hydro Cleanser and Nourishing Care Cleanser. I have to say that the Refreshing Gel Cleanser is absolutely lovely, it’s such a clean smell, I always find myself reaching for that one first.
Now I have to tell you about the photo on the right, because this is what ALWAYS opens my eyes on products. Laboratory studies, a.k.a. proof. In the picture to the right, the photo on the left is a forehead before cleansing at all with makeup on. On the right you see two images. The image on the left where it’s all black is the forehead after being cleaned with Clarisonic and the right is the side of the forehead that was manually cleaned. What a major difference regarding the amount of makeup still left on the skin from the manual wash. The sonic micro-massage loosens and removes dirt, oil and makeup from pores. Plus, get this, when you use it, there’s absolutely no splatter like it’s competitors. This means you don’t have to hide your head in the sink as you clean. The Classic has a few cleansing timers for you to choose from where it sounds a light beep to let you know to move from one area of your face to the next. After a long day at work, I find myself zoning out as I wash my face, so I appreciate the beeps to keep me moving before I crash out.
If you go for a professional facial, I guarantee that they’ll be using a Clarisonic cleansing system on you. I’ve had a lot and they always pull one out, they even use them for micro-dermabrasions! The brush uses sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second. This cleans, softens and smooths your skin. In just 60 seconds, the micro-massage removes six times the amount of make-up and two times more dirt and oil than cleaning with your hands alone. When you remove all of these things from your pores, it allows your products to work more effectively on your skin. Plus the Clarisonic reveals healthier skin by helping you shed the dead cells that lead to faster aging!
Now to talk about Clarisonic’s latest item, the Opal Sonic Infusion System. I first learned about this during a facial when they used it on me. Holy moly was it interesting. I’ve always known that the skin around your eyes is the most sensitive and delicate. This is why they’ve always said to use your weakest finger, the ring finger, when applying products to the area. Well Clarisonic’s Opal Sonic Infusion system is the very first and only device approved to be save enough to use on the eye area. First of all, this life changing little device comes with a charger, the adorable limited edition travel bag, 2 extra applicator tips and a 1.7 oz. bottle Anti-Aging Sea Serum.
The Opal Sonic Infusion System infuses serums and creams to your eye area by circulating at a 125 sonic micro-massages per second. This instantly hydrates your skin and reduces the fine lines and puffiness in eyes. You’ll notes firmer skin in 4 weeks and a reduction of aging in 8 weeks! It’s even gentle enough for daily use. How do I know this works? Well I started using it and definitely started to notice the puffiness around my eye was gone! After a couple weeks, I think I started to take it for granted. Then out of nowhere, I somehow got conjunctivitis, so I did not use the Opal. After a week and a half of not using the Opal I started to notice how much more tired I looked. I suddenly panicked to make sure that the infection was gone, because I now realized I HAVE to have this system in my daily routine. It works, it truly works.
To use it, I first apply the Anti-Aging Sea Serum to each eye. You add a tiny drop to the applicator tip and turn on the system you slowly move it around under your eye from your nose to the side of your eye. It’s on a timer, so it will automatically shut off once the product is absorbed into the skin. Once it turns off, I use my ring finger to spread the product over my top lid and up against my bottom lashes, since it’s not safe to use the Opal in those areas. I repeat on the other eye and then the whole process repeats again with my eye cream. How the Opal skin system works is that it actually builds up the skin’s resilience over time and prevents all future damage. Again with my love of the photos to show how the system works, the photo above shows how much eye cream is actually absorbed into the skin when you use the Opal Sonic Infusion System compared to applying the same product with your ring finger. There’s no denying how much more effective it is to use the Opal!
Taking care of your skin is something that you will appreciate for the rest of your life. You take care of it and it will thank you by having every woman you see ask you what you use on your face. With these items your skin will look and feel younger without having to resort to plastic surgery. There’s a reason that Clarisonic is a leader in this industry and why every high-end spa incorporates their items into their facials. They work. Do your skin a favor and make these items a must-have in your daily routine. Head over to Clarisonic to read about these products further as well as all of their other items available.
