You’ve seen it in magazines or maybe one of Kourtney Kardashian’s Instagram posts, but what IS a Clarisonic?! The Clarisonic is a sonic cleansing brush that gently removes excess dirt, oil, and dead skin. Trust me, that washcloth is  not doing the trick. My skin type is a combination of oily + dry which can make it difficult to find products that work. Your closet isn’t the only thing you should transition from summer to fall! Why should your skincare routine differ season to season? Here are a few reasons:

  • With higher temperatures in the summer, your skin is almost guaranteed to produce more oil and sweat (your Clarisonic will definitely be working overtime). The main goal is to not clog your pores even further and use lighter products than usual.
  • Additionally, you probably treat your skin to a few more days in the sun when it’s warmer outside. You can go ahead and switch that SPF 50 to something lighter once you stop spending as much time at the beach or by the pool.
  • In the fall and winter months, I always notice my skin is dramatically drier. Try substituting your face wash to something more soothing and couple it with plenty of moisturizers to get the job done.

My Morning Skincare Routine

  • After wetting my face, I apply a nickel-size of cleanser to my Clarisonic.
  • I gently scrub away the dirt and oil from my face. *Even if you washed your face the night before, don’t be lazy with this part! *
  • Then, I blot dry my face with a clean towel (separate from the one I use for the rest of my body).
  • Next, I like to apply toner to my entire face but focus on my t-zone to help minimize pores.
  • Do you have trouble looking bright and cheery in the morning ( aka me before every 8AM class)? Apply vitamin serum by Obagi to brighten up your face and balance out any hyperpigmentation!
  • I moisturize my face with this best-selling product by Eminence. It smells wonderful and all of their products are 100% organic!
  • ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS put sunscreen on! It doesn’t matter if it’s the dead of winter, it should always be the last step of your skincare routine!
  • Smile, cause your face is lookin’ so fresh and so clean!

*Disclaimer for all skincare reviews (not just mine with Clarisonic). Everyone has different skin, even family members. What works best for me, might not be the best fit for you. With that being said, the Clarisonic Mia has been the best gift my skin could have asked for. I immediately saw the difference in my t-zone, pore size, and congestion within the first week. I’ve made sure to pack it for my recent blogging events and trips to make sure my skin is camera ready! Still not convinced? The best way to test and see the difference is when you remove makeup. I never knew how much foundation I was leaving behind until I used the mia!

My beauty routine runs like clockwork and it’s very important to me. Growing up with a physician who works in anti-aging medicine and skin care, I probably know more about cell turnover rate and Botox than the average woman. Thankfully, this has allowed me to play around and find the best products for healthy skin and the Clarisonic is a clear winner. No matter the season, I ALWAYS use my Clarisonic twice a day!

    Hi,
    I’ve been dying to get my own Clarisonic, but I can’t afford it just yet. My husband bought the Skinvigorate cleanser brush by MaryKay, and it’s just okay, not fantastic. I still have my heart set on that Clarisonic, though. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Gloria says:

    Lovely post! I first heard of Clarisonic from a friend and was hesitant to try. Now that I’ve read your review about this, I am now going to try it as well. Thanks for sharing this.

    I was trying and thinking twice to get Clarisonic because its quite expensive here in the Philippines, but I’ve read lots of good reviews including yours today. I’ll save to get this onhand!

  7. Anosa says:

    I change up my skin routine with the change in weather and I do love using my clarisonic brush as it works wonders

  8. This looks like a great product. I have very sensitive skin so I am apprehensive about what I use, but I think I could use this no worries.

    • I understand. I’m allergic to a lot of things. The clarisonic itself is gentle I just think people will aggressively use it and then get a reaction to it. Definitely worth a try!

  9. Your skin looks fantastic! My daughter swears by her Clarisonic, and I’m thinking I might have to get one of my own!

  10. This is so informative! I have been looking for a skin routine and this sounds perfect! It definitely works for you!:)

  11. CourtneyLynne says:

    Omg I have a clarisonic and just love the thing. My skin is so much smoother because of the thing!

  12. Seyi says:

    I’ve heard about the Obagi products and someone else recommended using Vitamin C as well for skin! Need to get on it!

  13. I’m so bad at taking care of my complexion! I don’t like putting too much on my face but I can see how the Clarisonic can be useful for getting a much-needed wash especially when seasons change.

  14. You’re so dang CUTE, Tomi!! And I’m with ya…lovelovelove my Clarisonic.

    I have a spin brush I use to cleanse my face. Do you think it is safe to use at every face wash? I found it damaging to my skin and now use it every other wash.

  16. Sheri says:

    I love this and your advice and routine. I never treated my skin well (on my face) and I try to stick to a routine but sometimes I sleep with makeup on and I know I shouldn’t. My skin is sensitive ans breaks out frequently. Always on the lookout for something that will help me. Could I get these items shipped to Europe?

    • I know for sure eminence cause it’s based out of Hungary! Clarisonic should be able to ship as well! But I make sure to take my makeup off first thing when I get home otherwise I won’t do it!

  17. Imaobong says:

    This sounds really good — I have such an oily skin, it’s painfully frustrating,especially for the few days I decide to use makeup.
    I wonder if they sell this here.
    Thanks for sharing!
