elf Makeup Primer in Lavender

I’ve been addicted to elf cosmetics lately due to the fact that it’s vegan and cruelty-free. I decided to pick up the elf Brightening Lavender Face Primer. I’ve never used any of elf’s makeup primers before. This is new to me. I chose the Lavender because I love products that brigthen the skin up. They do have a makeup primer for blemish control. I’m not a big fan of makeup products that contain acne fighting ingredients even though I have acne-prone skin. They tend to dry the skin out during the day. That leads to the skin peeling and looking dry with flakes coming off. That’s not what I want.

Update: Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Brush

My update on the Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Brush

I made an update on the Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Brush about 3 weeks ago, but it’s time for another update. It’s almost close to 2 months…not quite yet. I think it’s time though. I’ve been using the facial brush religiously in the morning and at night. Here are my results so far…

I wanted to try the this facial brush because I thought it would help with some acne and exfoliation. At the beginning, it went well. I noticed some results. The results weren’t spectacular, but I noticed something different in my complexion. Since I’m nearing 2 months, I’ve noticed that it’s not as effective compared to what I’ve experienced in the past. I’ve mentioned that this facial brush is much weaker than the one I previously used. It is. Maybe that’s why it’s not working the same as the one I used before.

So, the facial brush isn’t living up to my expectations. It’s not helping much with my acne-prone skin. I could easily use a facial scrub and get the same results. Facial scrubs tend to be a lot cheaper too. The Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Brush was around 100ish plus tax. I can feel a thick layer of dead skin cells on my facial skin as the days go on. It does make my skin feel a tad cleaner, or is it from simply moving the bristles across my face?? I find the oscillations and vibrations pretty pointless and has no effect on my complexion.

As of right now, I’m thinking about giving up the Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Brush. I’ll give it a couple of more weeks. If nothing changes, it’s going back. If I’m paying this much for something, it should work. I’m definitely leaning towards moving onto a facial scrub instead.

If you missed out, here’s my introduction of the facial brush. Have you used the Clarisonic Mia Prima before? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts on it! Look forward to my Skin Care Routine and Makeup Routine soon. I haven’t posted them up yet because I wanted to do an update on the Clarisonic Mia first. 😊
