It's day two and my skin is already starting to look really good. I am thinking that I may need to reconsider skincare with my new toy. Is it still okay to use products with retinol, or would that now be overkill? The product directions say not to use cleansers with mechanical exfoliants like beads or shells with the device, but I already avoid those because of my skin sensitivity. There is a new acne cleanser in the Clarisonic line that is similar to the Burt's Bees acne wash I use, but I'm wondering if I should just switch to very basic products: Gentle cleanser, no-frills moisturizer, eye cream. I have some CeraVe cleanser and moisturizer, and I will also work on using up some of the many little bottles and tubes of things I have before going out and buying anything new.
I would love to hear from more experienced Clarisonic (or Mia, or Mia 2) users: What products do you use? What was your skin like before and what has changed? Did you find any products that just did not work with the Clarisonic?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. In case you are wondering, yes, I fully realize the incongruence between my upcoming "Live Below the Line" challenge and buying this expensive skincare device. That's why it should be called the "Eat Below the Line" challenge, because I still get to enjoy all my other conveniences, and just have to put up with the slight inconvenience of not eating the way I usually do.
