Okay guys! So if you saw my Day 1 post, then you know I got a Clarisonic MIA as an early Christmas present! I went over a lot in that post about what I expected & such so if you missed it, check it out here.
As expected, my face has indeed exploded. It is angry. The beginning of the week was definitely the worst though! I had some terrible cystic acne & still have some under my skin. Everyone warned me that this was going to happen so I was prepared! My skin is purging pretty much & everyone has had the same reactions pretty much.
My skin is still kind of annoyed & I still have some worry areas visible. I have one cystic under the skin that is absolutely horrible It is painful & irritating & I can’t wait until it is gone.
I’m still using my Clarisonic twice a day, morning & night. As shown above, I’ve been using it on the slightly higher level. I think most people would be flipping out if their skin got this bad but I’m loving it. I feel like it is truly doing its job & pulling everything out of my skin. I needed this so bad. I mean…as long as it clears up eventually obviously haha. I don’t want it to stay like this! But yeah, I am glad I don’t have to go out much & grateful for full coverage concealer.
So far, so good! I definitely needed the exfoliation to go with the acne treatments & my skin is already feeling incredible. I’m so glad I got a Clarisonic …even if this part isn’t pretty! I’ll be updating you guys in 2 week for my 1 month check-in!
Thanks so much to everyone who gave me advice! I was wondering how long it took your skin to STOP breaking out? & if you have a Clarisonic with multiple speeds…what speed do you use?
