It is here!!!

Since arriving in London, my skin has been really bad.
I'm not blaming the city, only myself, for not having the time to care for it like I used to. I don't even know what a face mask is any more. Bad, I know.

But I finally decided to do something about it, and what better way of caring for your skin than making sure it's properly looked after at the end of a hard working day?
So to help me, I placed an order for this baby:

Yes, I got a Clarisonic Mia! Woop!

I know you know what it is, so I'm not gonna bother talking about that. 
Basically it's a device that helps you remove all the dirt and impurities off your face at the end of the night.
Just in case you need more info about it, I recommend visiting their website.

It costs a whopping £120 on Amazon, but considering the fact that I've been wanting it for a long time and I 've done a lot of research on it and know it does it's job, I think it will be money well invested. 

Mine came in just 2 days and it was bundled up in bubble wrap, not to be harmed.  
The packaging is pretty nice and simple, no big fuss. Which I really like.  

It also comes with it's own mini cleanser, which I tried only once and didn't really like. I think it's because it doesn't make any foam, and I don't feel like it's cleansing my skin as it should be. 

The brush head on the Mia is the sensitive one, which is fine for me. 

It's not too rough on my skin, but at the same time, I do feel it working. 

But basically I've had my Mia for a bit over a week now and so far, so good. 
I did notice my skin was softer and more hydrated  after using it, and I do think that it helps with the way your skin absorbs products. 
Right before I started using it, I had some dry patches and they were gone in 2 days. 
Another thing that I noticed is that it helps heal breakouts and stops them from scarring. 

I know I've had it for a short period of time, but so far, I don't regret spending my money on it.
I am planning on making a more thorough review after using it for a while.

However,  I'm dealing with dry skin and patches once again, but I don't think it has anything to do with the Clarisonic.  I've just switched to a different cleansing milk, one from Johnson's.  The first time I used it, it really stung my face,   and within 48 hours my face started to get really dry and flaky.  So tomorrow I'm going to get another cleansing lotion and pray that my skin will get better. 
If something, I hope the Clarisonic Mia will help me solve this problem faster, as it is really annoying. 

I will keep you posted on my journey with the Clarisonic. 
Right now, I'm pretty optimistic about this whole thing. And if this doesn't help, I don't know what will. 

Hope you're all well ^^
