I was lusting after a Clarsonic for awhile but just could not bring myself to pay so much for one. I think I actually wanted one more because it felt like I was the only person on earth who didn’t have one. I did need something to exfoliate my face though in a bad way. I get very dry patches around my mouth and the skin actually has to flaked off and almost polished to make it smooth again. So I knew one of these little “micro scrubbing thingy’s” would do the trick. My husband told me more than once to “just go buy a Clairsonic.” But when I thought about how much stuff I could buy with the $150-200 that I would spend on one, I just couldn’t do it. So I started looking for a cheaper alternative and found this little guy.
I figured there was absolutely no way that this could even possibly compare to a Clairsonic. But then I stumbled across an amazing review for it on Amazon. The girl who wrote it basically said she owned one of these and loved it. But then she jumped on the “Clairsonic Bandwagon” and bought one. After using the Clairsonic for a few months, she can honestly not tell any difference between the two. So I found her honesty refreshing and exciting. I went to my local Target who sold these for $25, and my Walgreens had them for $24.99. I literally had one in my basket at Walgreens and something told me to put it back and keep looking for it even cheaper. So that night I went home and jumped back on Amazon. I found a few sellers who had them for around $15 which is a great price, but then it would come out to about the same as buying it in store once you add shipping. So I quit looking for awhile and then decided to quit bring so darn cheap and just pay the $25 for one. I mean after all, it was still way cheaper than any of the Clairsonics. So I went back onto Amazon and found one for 15.00, and it had FREE SHIPPING, and there was a $3 off coupon that you could click on too. So once I did that, I ended up getting it for $12.98 with tax and free shipping! I don’t think I could have gotten a better deal. The only reason I’m even telling you about how cheap I got this for is to remind you to always check online when you have your eye on something. You never know what kind of deal you might find! Anyways, now on to what I actually think about the product itself.
I have been using the cleanser and the brush for about a month now, anywhere between 2-3 times a week. I think for most people they probably wouldn’t have to use it as much as I do, but since I have the dry patches it really helps me to get rid of them. I noticed by the end of the second week that my face did break out a little more than normal. But from other reviews I have read about this type of product, that seems to be pretty normal for a lot of people.
