Clarisonic "withdrawal" question

I'm strongly considering getting a Clarisonic (not sure yet which one) to deal with my blackheads, large pores, and (lately at least) stress acne (I feel like I'm 15 again!). I've read a lot of great reviews, including some info on purging at the beginning of Clarisonic use. But I was wondering if my skin might also freak out if I went off the Clarisonic for a few days after a long time of regular use.

 

Basically, I travel semi-regularly for business, and I don't want to have to bring the Clarisonic with me. I realize the Mia is for travel, and I would bring it on a longer vacation (e.g., a week or more). But if I'm going on a two- or three-day trip, that's really not an option. Does anyone have experience with spending a few days just washing with hands or a washcloth again? I definitely don't want to have a sudden breakout in the middle of an important meeting, of all times. I would definitely do a test-run before an actual trip, since everyone's skin is different, but I am wondering if people seem to develop a dependence like this. Thanks in advance!

You don't have to worry about "withdrawal" from the Clarisonic. I travel a LOT and since I have the full size Clarisonic, I leave it at home when I'm on the road. I just wash with my regular face wash while traveling and don't get any breakouts. Though by the end of a week away from home, I can see more blackheads than when I am home and using the Clarisonic, but other than this cosmetic issue, nothing bad happens.  Have fun with your new Clarisonic, I think it is the best investment I've made in my skin!
