Confession time. I’ve always been lazy about washing my face.  I fall asleep with makeup on.  Some days in the shower I just forget.  I commit about every beauty felony known to skin.  And the thing is, I care about my skin. I think about aging, pimples, and wrinkles just as much as the next gal.  I’m just not all that in to washing my face and possibly it’s because I’ve never noticed that drastic a change amongst face scrubs, washes (oh the millions of products!) offered.

Just walk through Sephora.  There are plenty of beauty-face-related products on the market that make some outlandish claims.  I’m usually first in line on the naysayer train.  But I’ve come across a product that, while can seem (because it is) pricey, is my new every day go-to.  I’m trying to factor in the money I’ll save on facials. The justifications we make.

I’m singing the praises of the Clairsonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems.  I just bought this one.  It’s been on the market for a while, but if you aren’t a believer, you should be. Used and recommended by spas and dermatologists (and me!) the Clairsonic uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements and removes tons of dirt and oil trapped in pores that manual cleansing can leave behind…six times more makeup and two times more dirt and oil than washing with your hands.  It also reduces oil and dry patches, and minimizes the appearance of pores.

Build up can damage the appearance of skin and even prevents other skin care products from working properly.  That means your expensive moisturizer may not be doing its job.

And serious data aside, it leaves your skin feeling SO soft. I mean baby soft. And it makes face-washing fun.  Even for girls like me.
