Using Clarisonic to Perfect Your Skincare Routine

When it comes to skin, beauty, or hair, my skin is my #1 priority. I pay SO much attention to my skin and put this care first. I first implemented a skincare routine when I found out I was pretty allergic to sulfate. After using shampoo with sulfate in it, my hairline and down around my nose, chin and neck broke out SO badly. My back, in spots where my hair would stay, broke out severely. It was so embarrassing, especially in the summer, to work around acne like the kind I had – red, big, and noticeable. When the spots weren’t that noticeable, they were painful and I knew they were there. Another issue I’ve had with my skin is dryness. I have eczema and really, REALLY dry skin on top of that, so I’m basically a hot mess year-round. It’s been hard to find products that are sulfate free and okay for (really) dry skin.


I decided to make my skin my first priority and focus on developing a proper routine about a year and a half ago. I’m not going to preach to you about using crazy expensive products/soaps or eating healthy to reduce acne, because I honestly I don’t do either of those. I’m giving you my honest, real-life, review of my favorite and most recent addition to my skincare regime.


This Clarisonic Mia 2 device…y’all. It’s SO easy and I use it for a minute everyday. You read right. Literally 60 seconds of quick skincare that will do WONDERS for your face. After my first week using Clarisonic, I already noticed a difference in my skin and how it feels. I’m always self conscious about breaking out around my hairline and my nose, as I mentioned earlier. Sometimes if I have a lot of trouble spots there, I’m worried about my skin being bumpy or rough to the touch. The Clarisonic is a great relief at the end of the day. I know I can feel confident in my healthy, smooth skin if I use my Mia 2 regularly.

The kit includes a Deep Pore Daily Cleanser and also a weekly mask you can add to your routine. I’ve found that the daily cleanser is the perfect consistency, where your face doesn’t feel like it’s covered heavily but instead being washed with a smooth and safe soap.

I know I told you that the Clarisonic takes a minute to use, but besides the actual skincare part, the device is easy to manage. You plug it in whenever to charge and the prep is simple – just make sure your face and brush are both wet (and your face doesn’t have makeup on it) before you use the device. Duh, right?

With Christmas coming up, this is the PERFECT gift for any college student in your life. BUT my little sister has one and she LOVES it, so don’t forget about other ages too!

Speaking of presents, Clarisonic has a special 15% off coupon code JUST FOR YOU! The code is HERCAMPUS and it is valid through October 31.

My skin is so important to me. After all, you have it forever. So you might as well keep it happy and healthy and smooth AF. And with the Clarisonic Mia 2, you can do that. And you can do that ridiculously and amazingly and wonderfully well. TRUST. And now enjoy this photo of me without makeup because people this is rare and my lazy eye is poppin’ rn and does ANYBODY have luck with braids staying in after a long day help please!!! and people I look like a slob. But hey. I do it for the blog.

    This year I definitely decided to make the health of my skin a priority and started by drinking more water! I have had the original Clarisonic Mia for years, but have fallen out of love with it. Super glad to see that they are still putting out quality products!!
