Help with Clarisonic use!
Are the Clarisonic and cleanser supposed to create suds? Are you supposed to wash your face before using the Clarisonic? I don't think all of my make up is coming off. Am I doing something wrong?
Suds are not always necessary when cleaning but some people do prefer to use sudsy cleansers I never felt much of a "sudsy" feeling when using Clarisonic cleansers but that was just on my own skin type.
I usually recommend giving your face a quick cleanse before using a Clarisonic. This way you are really removing what is on your face and then the next step of the Clarisonic brush removes leftover buildup and dead skin cells and leaving your skin feeling extra cleansed.
Try using a different gel or cream cleanser if you want that foamy feeling, and remember that using a makeup remover and cleanser before the brush will keep you from just rubbing makeup all over the face. Try some of my favorite cleansers below:
Origins Checks and Balances
Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cleanser
I don't find much sudsing going on even using a foamy cleanser if I am using my Clarisonic. I think all the sonic action breaks up the bubbles.
If you give your face a wipe with a makeup removing cloth before you use your Clarisonic, it will get off the makeup that would otherwise get smudged around your face. Plus some cleansers aren't really up to the job of makeup removal, they are more for oil and regular dirt cleansing. So you may be right, you aren't getting off all your makeup with a cleanser plus the Clarisonic. Yes to Cucumbers is a good makeup removing wipe, they are available at drugstores, you don't have to get the really expensive wipes, either.
Hope this helps.
