Sixty seconds. That’s all it takes – once a night – to see clearer, radiant, and more beautiful skin. Having spawned numerous pretenders to the throne (hello, drugstore spinning devices?), Clarisonic uses sonic technology that works with skin’s natural elasticity, to oscillate at a sonic frequency which produces over 300 movements per second. All you need to know, however, is that this system works. Works so well, in fact, that you will never ‘forget’ to cleanse your face at night again.
The Clarisonic Aria (CAN $230.00 – available in 3 colours: white, pink & black) is the latest unit to be released in the brand’s lineup, featuring 3 speeds (Delicate, Universal & Powerful), a self-timer that beeps to let you know when to move on to another part of the face, a USB-enabled Universal Voltage Plink charger and interchangeable brush heads.
The following video best describes the advantages to using this amazing beauty tool – enjoy!
FULL DETAILS ON A FABULOUS MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY AT THE END OF THE POST !
From the day that I was sent the Clarisonic Aria (the white model) for review, it has become a permanent part of my beauty routine. Using this unit could not be simpler; I begin by removing any eye makeup, then I immediately apply my cleanser to my face – I also make sure to have the handset ready, by wetting the brush head first (alternatively, you can also apply your favourite cleanser directly onto the brush head). I start at the forehead, using only the lightest pressure while continuously moving the handset in a circular motion. After the unit beeps, I move on to the nose, chin and even neck area – with the cheeks left for the last 2 beeps. Upon completion, I give my skin a thorough rinse with warm water, where I also take a few seconds to clean the brush head at this time as well (I also remove the brush head and give the inner unit a quick rinse). After patting my skin dry, I quickly follow up with my nighttime moisturizing routine. Done. Easy-peasy and hello to the cleanest skin possible.
What I’ve noticed: After having used the Clarisonic Aria for a few weeks now, my skin is showing results: appearing clearer, my pores seem tighter and less visible (but not gone – just not as enlarged looking), my skin feels soft, smooth & looks more even-toned – which also has supplied the added benefit of helping my foundation lay more evenly along my skin, and I haven’t had any skin eruptions (yes, even at my age I still get breakouts).
It’s also great that the unit is not only rechargeable (with the option of charging it via a USB connection), but comes with a stand as well – very convenient for storing it properly.
Clarisonic Aria – box contents
If you haven’t jumped on the Clarisonic bandwagon yet, I strongly urge you to give this unit a try (there’s also a 90-day money-back guarantee if you’re not fully satisfied). We all know that proper & thorough facial cleansing is the first step in maintaing your skin at its optimum best, but it’s not exactly a glamorous step in one’s beauty routine – using the Clarisonic Aria not only makes it fun, but through consistent & proper use, can help your skincare routine be even more effective. Plus, it would make a wonderful (and totally thoughtful) Mother’s Day gift, no?!
