The Clarisonic Diaries: Three Weeks In

Wow, the weeks are just flying by.  I've now been using my Clarisonic for three weeks.  Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), there's no cheek photo this week, as I wasn't quite awake this morning and took a photo of the wrong side of my face.  Muppet.

I'm still not having entirely good skin days.  This week I've had a couple of really nasty spots, and some strange bumpy bits have appeared on my forehead.  Before I blame the Clarisonic, though, I've decided that regardless of what results I do or do not see in the first month, I'm going to continue on for a further month with a different skincare regime, just in case it's my current set of lotions and potions which are making me bumpy (and spotty).

On the upside, my skin is still exceptionally soft and smooth, and all forms of product continue to sink in ever so quickly.  I'm exfoliating less than I used to, as I feel that the Clarisonic is giving my skin a pretty good exfoliation twice daily, and I don't really want to overdo it.  Read on after the jump to see my full face photo for this week.  It was taken early this morning, so excuse the bleary eyes.


  1. It's normal to get spots. That's because you're removing a layer of skin so all of the oil and dirt are coming out to the surface. That happened with my sister too. Keep your routine up and your skin will get better x

  2. I really hope so! I don't usually get spots, so these are really bothering me :)

  3. Thanks so much for your Clarisonic reviews, they have been really helpful. Although it is too soon to make a final judgement, I think I have decided to stick with my Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant as it seems to give all the same benefits (super smooth skin that feels deeply cleansed with need for less product) without the hassle of washing and replacing the brushes and of course the expense! I think I was hoping for some sort of miracle product, but my spots are mainly stress and hormone related anyway so there is not much I can do :(

  4. hope the clarisonic has worked for you,i found i had spots for a week or two then it really cleared up.
