Winter will be here next month and it's getting cold outside already. My skin tends to get confused when the weather starts changing so that means I need to switch up my routine. I usually wash my face with a moisturizing facial wash so it doesn't dry out and I exfoliate often so that I can have healthy clean skin.
Two years ago I begged my mom to buy me the Clarisonic Mia 2. After using it a bunch of times I didn't notice a strong difference in my skin and ended up ditching it (which sucks because it was expensive, $149). Recently during the Instyle Magazine Celebrate In Style Event I learned about a different facial cleaning system, the Silk`n Sonic Clean which retails for only $99.
The Silk'n SonicCleanPlus uses sonic vibration technology with the largest motor on the market, larger than the Clairsonic. The SonicCleanPlus motor generates a strong vibration that is sent to every bristle on the brush head. This large motor produces high frequency vibrations for a higher performance level. The gentle but powerful micro-fiber bristles effectively remove dirt, makeup, and dry or flaky skin cells. Did you know that using a system like this helps to remove 6 x more makeup than your hands alone? We all know this is true, have you experienced using a cotton pad to apply toner on your face after washing, and still noticed makeup or dirt on it? If so, that means that your face still wasn't 100% clean but now thanks to products like the Silk'n SonicCleanPlus your chances of having cleaner skin have increased. Clean skin leads to less breakouts and a more natural appearance because then you can apply less makeup on your face.
I have been using this product for a few weeks now and I'm already impressed with my results. The results of this product remind me of the baby smooth skin I once had after receiving a facial at Bliss Spa, except with this I'm getting professional results with no appointment necessary and I can do it from the comfort of my home anytime I want. It's also available in two colors: pink and grey which can make it the perfect gift for any friend of family member - male or female and the perfect Holiday season gift.
The SonicCleanPlus features two unique cleansing modes: Vibrate mode- to increase the flow of oxygen through the skin to improve blood circulation, and pulsating mode- to improve elasticity and overall look and feel. Within each mode there are two different settings, a gentle option and then a more powerful option that you can choose from based on preference, so all together you are getting 4 different options. The Clairsonic only offers two options for added cleansing customization.
How To Use:
For use with warm water, cleansers, scrubs, or microdermabrasion creams hold the brush firmly on your face, select desired mode and move in upward, circular motion in each area to clean.
You can use this product up to 2 times a day depending on your preference. The 60 sec. auto-timer allows you to track each treatment area as you clean. I personally only like to use mine at night. Since this product is water resistant and cordless, you can use this on your body as well as in the shower.
