LADY@LXG: Perfect skin with my new awesome Clarisonic's Mia 2

 I have always wanted a Clarisonic face brush. I mean like REALLY, REALLY wanted a Clarisonic  face brush so much, but the retail price is not exactly pocket change, so I just secretly fantasized about it instead. Eventually, I settled on a cheaper alternative, which to be fair did a decent job, but did not extinguish the flame that burned deep within me, for the Clarisonic.

Then one day, out of the blue I met lovely Matilda from Clarisonic. While she demonstrated the benefits of the brush and all the different brush heads (they have the regular type, one for sensitive skin, one to hydrate the skin and one for the delicate eye area), I restrained myself from braining her and running away with her demo model. Instead, as she extolled the brushes' many benefits, that little flame which burned deep within my heart began to grow into an uncontrollable inferno and I found myself falling in love all over again. The Clarisonic was so pretty, so perfectly crafted and so ergonomic in design that it seemed like it was made just for my little hand! 

Christmas came early for me this year when Matilda not only GAVE me a Clarisonic Mia 2 (OMG not just a Clarisonic but the latest model!!) she also let me choose which colour I wanted. After 30 minutes of dithering, I finally picked the "Energy" brush, a fresh, light green hue that is so fresh and cheerful that it makes me smile whenever I see it perched upon my bathroom sink.
 I have had the brush now for over a month and I love it! I mean really! I use it once a day, every day on my face and neck, and my skin has truly cleared up, so much so that I no longer get insulted by my facial therapist. (Score!)

For those of you who follow my frequent rants about the state of my congested skin, I can honestly say that it has improved by leaps and bounds since using the brush just once a day. Its so gentle, I even use it a day after having my face lasered. Yeah, its that gentle. 

I did the tissue test with my old brush which had the sheet of facial tissue spinning around like a windmill, but when I used the Clarisonic on the very same piece of tissue, it didn't even budge. This is because the Clarisonic does not spin, which is why it is gentle enough to be us
If that wasn’t enough, Matilda also gave me the Clarisonic’s Deep Pore Decongesting Solution, a definite “must-have” for those of you with congested skin like myself or those of you who just want an awesomely flawless complexion.

The Clarisonic’s Deep Pore Decongesting Solution combines Clarisonic’s first-ever two-step skin solution with its patented Deep Pore Brush Head and sonic technology to optimize the cleansing experience when it comes to pores. This innovative collection includes the renowned Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush with the Deep Pore Brush Head, Deep Pore Daily Cleanser and Decongesting Clay Mask.  

Tested by leading dermatologists, this set reduces pore appearance by 25% after just one use. Skin is left with a smoother, more radiant and flawless complexion.  

When used twice daily, the powerful combination of the Deep Pore Brush Head and Deep Pore Daily Cleanser flushes pores to remove set-in debris, revealing clearer, smoother skin. The Deep Pore Daily Cleanser is specifically formulated with ingredients designed to help control oil and refine enlarged pores.  

The sulfate-free, paraben-free formula when activated by the Deep Pore Brush Head creates a keratolytic action that loosens pore-clogging dead skin cells. While the Decongesting Clay Mask combines the skin-renewing power of a hydroxy acid blend with the oil-absorbing power of kaolin and bentonite clays. When removed with the Clarisonic Deep Pore Brush Head, this combination helps exfoliate dead skin cells and rid the pores of damaging pore-clogging toxins.
