A fortnight in and the congestion on my chin has improved greatly over the past week, although I can see feel slight abrasions. The breakout along my jawline and under my ears has totally disappeared though, which I'm pleased about. I've been using the device to clean my face twice a day and I haven't defaulted once on this routine which is quite a feat for me!
My skin I think, is looking a little brighter sans makeup, although not by much. I'm still waiting for the Normal brush head that I ordered, to arrive - maybe tomorrow, fingers crossed. My cheeks are feeling super smooth and soft, as is my forehead. Despite the blustery weather, my skin isn't suffering from any dry patches at all, which is a plus.
This week I plan to start using a moisturiser I have which is aimed at brightening pigmentation marks. I think these are what are disguising any prominent improvement to the clarity of my skin tone and hopefully over a prolonged period of time I'll see a marked difference in them as I continue to use both the moisturiser and Clarisonic. Time will tell. I also have a facial booked for Wednesday which I'm hoping will help my skin further too.
I've noticed that the Clarisonic doesn't work so well with one of my cleansers. Neutrogena's Fresh Foaming Cleanser just doesn't foam up the same way it does when I use my hands to cleanse my face, so I've replaced it with Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit Wash, which I've wanted to try since reading a review on it a few months ago here on Imo's blog, Its a London Thing. I'll continue to alternate between this and Dermalogica's Special Clearing Gel as both have the gel formulas that I love.
I'm still not convinced that there's any change in my pore size - maybe they're at the stage where they can't be helped. I don't know, I'm not a dermatologist. All I know is that the teeny dots on my skin that are either side of my nose, still look exactly the same as they did a month ago and I don't need to be an expert in order to distinguish that!
The biggest difference to my skin so far now, is its overall texture. It feels amazingly soft and supple, which I'm extremely pleased with and hope to maintain.
Roll on week 3!
ETA: My normal head brush arrived this afternoon, so I'll be putting that to work this evening.
