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!

When I have neglected to put my Clarisonic on the charging base and the battery has run down, I have gone a few days without using it after regular daily use and have had no bad reactions from not using it so I don't think you'd have any trouble with leaving it at home while you travel.

Also, not everyone has the initial "skin breakout" when they first start using the brush.  I had no trouble when I first started using mine (and I have sensitive skin), so it just varies from person to person.

I hope this helps you. Smiley Happy
