So my skin and I have being having a few disagreements as of late. Some minor but mostly major disagreements including a housing estate worth of spots that have taken permanent residency on my jawline and chin (without prior planning permission I might add). My favourite has to be the most recent one, though, where my skin went and completely overreacted to some product and decided to flake away a few layers of skin, leaving raw, sore and exposed skin on my cheeks. It didn't care what I thought, it just went ahead and did it.
I decided that enough is enough. As a permanent separation from my skin is not an option, I decided to bring in a meditator to help bring a balance and happiness between my skin and I. The mediator comes in the form of the Clarisonic Mia.
I'm sure most of you have heard of this device, which the Americans have been buzzing about for the past few years, but if you haven't, the Clarisonic is essentially a giant electric toothbrush for your face which offers deep cleansing and should assist in acne reduction and discolouration of the skin.
I have read so many promising reviews of it, so I really hope it makes a difference to my skin. Not that it is important but once I decided to get one, one of the longest decisions I took to make was which colour to get lol! I was torn between the lavender, green and yellow. Green is my favourite colour so I almost went for that but then decided to go for the primrose yellow as it will be like a little ray of sunshine to use every morning:)
Whilst I was on a new skincare binge I decided to go all out and get 2 more cult favourites, both from Origins. The VitaZing moisturiser and the GinZing eye cream.
I'm going to be using these from now on and hopefully in a few months when I do a review it will be of me gushing about how much I love them and how they have given me the most wonderful clear skin!
A word of warning: if you are ordering the Clarisonic online you may be caught by customs. Although I ordered off a UK website (Feel Unique) I was still stung with a €44 customs charge. I was certain that you couldn't be charged customs within Europe, but obviously I was wrong:/
