Oh how I desire an even skin tone. I look at women who look radiantly beautiful with no foundation, their skin as even and clear as can be and envy takes over my soul.
I’ve had troubled skin all my life. Acne haunted me for most of my teen years and into my early 20’s. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon Curology that I finally found relief for all those stubborn blemishes.
Although my skin is much more clear, I have redness and unevenness that I will probably always struggle with. On top of that, I am more oily than anyone on the history of this planet (or at least that’s how I feel). With the oils come enlarged pores, all of which makes for very textured skin.
If you struggle textured skin, I’m pretty sure there is no miracle product that will miraculously give us naturally flawless skin, but I did discover something that will dramatically help: Clarisonic Mia 2
Prior to my discovering this lifeline, I would try and cover my texture up with pore filling primers and intense moisturizers. I thought if I moisturized well enough, surely the texture would subside. Now, I still believe a good moisturizer is very important and still use one to this day, but this will not fix your issue.
The problem was I was trying to cover up my texture, rather than treating it. My Philosophy Purity cleanser just wasn’t enough to give my skin the deep clean it needed.
Judge me if you will, but I am a huge QVC fan. I can watch QVC for hours, particularly the beauty and cooking bits. While watching one night, the sales pitch pulled me in and I decided to splurge on the one beauty tool that would change my skin care routine forever… the Clarisonic Mia 2.
I was never able to achieve a flawless finish with my foundation and it didn’t matter if I used a brush or a sponge. My foundation always looked a little heavy and bumpy.
The moment of truth came the morning after I used the Clarisonic for the first time. I definitely was not prepared for what I was about to experience. My moisturizer soaked into my skin beautifully. My foundation glided over my texture perfectly and stayed in place. I didn’t have the bumps and rough spots that I normally experienced when trying to blend out my foundation.
The Clarisonic had done so much more than remove my makeup. It removed my dead skin cells that had been building up on my cheeks and forehead. It removed any residue left from primers that my cleanser and wash rag weren’t able to remove. My skin was a smooth canvas for the first time and I couldn’t believe the difference it made.
I didn’t just benefit from my easy makeup application. My skin care seemed to soak into my skin so much better than before. When I woke up morning after morning, my skin felt more hydrated than ever and I truly believe the Clarisonic is to thank.
If you suffer from textured and uneven skin and have been searching for the perfect product to cover it up, stop searching and purchase the Clarisonic. This product will easily remove all makeup and prepare your skin for your nightly routine.
I know it is a bit of a splurge, but I am so glad I made the leap. I have never been happier with my skin.
