With all of the various makeup and skincare products being applied to my skin at photoshoots, cleansing is crucial for me! The main reasons to "cleanse" the skin are to remove buildup and increase hydration, which helps to maintain clear skin and slow down the aging process. Cleansing is the most important step in a skincare regime for radiant skin, but there are many products on the market that can make it confusing to decide on a device or cleanser. Of course, since Clarisonic is the #1 US Dermatologist recommended cleansing device, I needed to give it a try for myself.
I love having clean, glowy skin, so one reason I became a fan of the Clarisonic Mia Prima Device is because it's gentle enough to use up to twice a day! The bristles of the Clarisonic cleansing brush head move back and forth, or "oscillate", gently flexing the skin and flushing water and cleanser into the pores. This removes the dirt, oil and debris that can age your skin and cause breakouts. The device has been proven to cleanse skin 6x better than hands alone, and it removes makeup much better than any wipe I have used.
Not only did the Mia Prima device work wonders by really getting into my pores, my skin felt so soft and radiant from the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. The gentle foaming cleanser helps remove impurities without over-drying my skin. Kiehl's cleanser is formulated with Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, leaving the skin feeling clean but nourished instead of dried out. Squalane is a natural antioxidant, and the oils in it work to repair and moisturize the skin, which is why this pH balanced blend is so powerful. This was important for me because many cleansers I have tried in the past tend to dry out skin - but that is the last thing you want in the winter!
I am all about clean beauty and knowing what I put on my skin (and into my body!), and I have been very pleased with my results after testing both products out for 10 days.
Not only does this duo make a great gift, but your skin could be in need of a good cleanse too from all of the stress caused by the holiday season!
