Clarisonic poor man's version

Hello my lovely readers,
Today I would like to talk about the most intresting subject in beauty world :skin care,  and what I have been doing recently ( for a couple of months now).
Everyone has different skin type, so please note that what I experienced may be completely different from yours. As I told before I have combination skin, from time to time, I suffer from acne mostly around my chin and cheeks. and the rest of the time that my skin is clear of acne I am recovering form the spots and redness that they left me. 
I learned that there are so many factors affecting my skin, some of them can be controlled and honestly some of the are out of my power like: stress, hormones, eating, weather. so basically anything can effect the appearance of the skin. 
So other than controlling what I eat, I  just try to keep my skin ( mainly my pores) clear. I wash my face with cleanser 2 times a day, one in the morning and one in night after removing my make up.
I think I heard about this cleansing tool last year. it is called Clarisonic. It is basically a face brush that removes dead skin, oil, and dirt form pores with sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second and leaves your skin fresh and clean. I never tried it, though heard a lot of positive comments on it. I will get it one day but now I think it is a little pricey for me (around 150$ or even higher).  maybe one day...

So here is my own version of Clarisonic. it is face brush of course without the fancy sonic frequency.
I put my cleanser on it and then start to wash my face with it. it is soft but I don't press too hard , just lay it there on my skin and very gently massaging on my face . my whole face wash will take less than a minute, so I'm not standing there messaging and messaging! after that I wash and remove the cleanser with water. my skin feels so clean and vibrate. The difference is somehow like washing your teeth with tooth brush or your fingers! I could imagine how the real Clarisonic would feel like, but in a mean time I will use my own version.

It is true that it is important to have a clean skin, but is more important not to clean too much  and suck the healthy oil form your skin. too much cleaning leave the skin irritated, red and dry and totally unhealthy looking.
that's how it looks in the packaging, it comes with a white headband
I got the brush form our drugstore (Pharmaprix). I know Sephora , Sheseido also carries something like that.but I'm sure if you look around in your drugstore, you would find it, if you are willing to try the brush.
So what is your skin cleansing routine?

  6. ghazaleh jan razi hasti az Clean&Clear .?

  7. @ Ghazale joon,if you could find Vichy there, " NORMADERM Cleansing purifying gel" is one of the best cleanser I tried , oh and I tried sooooooo many ! now I am using "Kiehl’s Ultimate White Cleansing Cream" it is ok, but I am going back to Vichy after I finished it. I am always try to find something new and better I don't know why I did not stuck with that Vichy though. which one of the "clean&clear" you use for your skin? maybe I will try that one too:)
