My skin sucks. It's always kind of sucked, but for some reason, once I hit my 20's, it REALLY sucked. I thought acne was for teenagers?
I've seen a few different Dermatologist several times and have tried several different topical and oral prescriptions to help my skin. Some have helped a bit but I still would get a lot of break outs. Like, I-don't-want-to-leave-the-house-my-skin-sucks-so-bad breakouts or I-hate-my-own-face breakouts. It is one of the worst feelings in the world and it's not fair for anyone to have to feel that way.
When I first read about Clarisonic here, I knew I had to have one. I finally got a cute, pink Mia for Christmas, see it hiding under the tree up there? So far (knock on wood), it is the best thing that has ever happened to my skin. I could not love it more. My skin has cleared up immensely and I haven't had a break out in the 3 weeks I've been using it.
It came with a sensitive skin and normal skin face brush and 2 cleansers. I currently use the sensitive skin brush every night with either the acne cleanser, or my Clean & Clear face wash. I do still use my topical RX nightly along with taking an oral acne prescription.
My skin has obviously cleared up and is so much more even. Several nights now T has commented on how smooth my face is and how it never used to be that smooth (gee, thanks). I still have quite a bit of redness (scarring?) on my cheeks, but if this keeps up, I'd actually feel okay going makeup less in some situations. It's such a huge relief to leave the house in the morning feeling good about how my skin looks.
