I love New York, don’t get me wrong. But it’s totally not the cleanest city. I try super hard not to touch anything, but it’s kind of inevitable. I cringe every morning when I grab hold of the bar in the train and try my hardest not to think of the hundreds of other hands that have touched it as well. Because I know I don’t live in a germ-free bubble (even though I think I would love to), I know my hands are covered in germs.
I try even harder not to touch my face! I know that’s always the tip they tell you in teeny bopper magazines and in the dermatologist office. I mean, transferring all those nasty germs onto my face…. blech! But I know I touch my face… I talk on my cell phone (and can only imagine what kinds of germs lurk on it), I put my elbows on the table and lean my chin on my hands.
Normally, when I’m coming home from work, it’s pretty late and the only thing I can think about the entire train ride home is washing my face.
Enter: The Clarisonic.
I have the Clarisonic Mia and think that it’s the next best thing since sliced bread! Seriously, it’s like taking a trip to the spa… without having to go anywhere. I’ve had it for a while now, and I’ve never tried any of the other face brush things that have popped up on the market. But I can definitely tell you that I’m obsessed with the Clarisonic. It probably falls into the category of miracle workers.
Back in Tampa and even Georgetown, I would only use it every other day. I felt like using it too much irritated my skin. Now I use it every day, if not twice a day. (Just to get all the cityness out of my pores!)
I love the Mia and I think it does a great job, but I’m considering upgrading to the regular Clarisonic. Let me know what you think in a comment!
Nordstrom has really cute kits… because half the fun of the Clarisonic is how cute they are 😉
Do you use a Clarisonic?
