In Europe, chain-smoking is a real thing.

Of course, you do you, but I just can’t see myself jumping aboard the cigarette wagon anytime soon … The smell just gets to me, y’know? 

But, even beyond the smell, smoking is VERY anti-wellness – it’s so ridiculously bad for you, inside & out. The problem with this pesky habit is that the side effects happen not only to the smoker, but also to everyone else around them. πŸ™

It was only a couple of days of my life in Paris before I noticed how bad my skin got due to the never-ending billows of cig smoke around me. I knew something was up because I’ve actually been VERY on-point with my skin-care routine recently. Back home, skin care tended to slip my mind, & when I did actually remember, I slacked off tons.

Tsk, tsk – I know. 

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have an actual SINK in my room, just a couple feet away from my bed? I swear, it just sits there in the corner & judges me if I don’t get up & take care of my skin – LOL!

But really, at one point, I felt so nasty & knew that my skin needed some MAJOR TLC. So, I got a Deep Pore set + a Mia 2 from Clarisonic & the rest is history.


a review : Clarisonic Deep Pore Mia 2 Set

Clarisonic devices are my go-to because the sonic technology is just SO worth it. It makes sure that the brush REALLY gets in there & takes out all of the nastiness clogging my pores. It’s almost ridiculous how hands just can’t compare – I’d say it’s pretty damn magical. ✨

I sometimes have a lil’ tough luck with skin care because I kinda, sorta have skin that’s on the sensitive side. It’s not too terrible, but it does mean that certain products just don’t work for me. The Clarisonic isn’t a problem at all because it feels gentle on my skin ( & judging from the lack of blotchiness on my face afterward, it actually IS pretty gentle ). 

There are 2 speed options : delicate & universal. Delicate’s awesome if you have more sensitive skin, but universal obvi works a lil’ better. I like to use the universal speed unless I’m breaking out.

ALSO : Clarisonic carries a TON of special brush types which keeps things interesting if you wanted to switch it up – the brush heads need to be replaced every so often ( I’d say like 3 months ) … & while that can get annoying, the battery life makes up for it.

Literally haven’t had to charge it after the first time, which is PERFECT for me since I have like a million chargers to dig through. πŸ˜…

Basically, what I do is remove my makeup, wet the device & splash some water on my face, spread some cleanser on my face ( the Deep Pore Mia 2 set comes with a cleanser, but you can also use my fave cleanser ), & get cleaning.

It literally takes a minute – super fun, super easy. I usually use it at the sink, but you can also use it in the shower because it’s waterproof.

Convenient, right?!

β˜€οΈ HOT TIP : leave your Clarisonic in a dry place so it doesn’t mold.

For some much-needed skin TLC, I LOVE Clarisonic devices – they just get it, y’know? 

So, tell me – have any of you babes tried using a Clarisonic yet? Or maybe it’s at the top of your wish-list? Let me know!
