I’ve been using the Clarisonic Opal for a week and at first I was all thumbs. I had to read the instructions several times before I felt comfortable to try it. It is not like any other device that I had used and I’m especially anxious about using anything around my eyes.
The oval device has a little nubbin that you fill with serum. This pale amber gel had a number of interesting ingredients which had some good science behind them. These included world class antioxidants including green tea and resveratrol and marine peptides, vitamin C to brighten the skin and glycosaminoglycans ( what a mouthful) for firmness.
The Clarisonic instructions were very specific to follow the rim of the eye socket and not to use the device on the soft tissue right below the eye. As per directions I put a few drops of serum on the infuser, turned on the moter and started to move the tip in little overlapping circles. After 30 seconds the machine turns off.
The procedure should be done twice a day– in the morning and before going to bed. According to instructions, I was to wash my face with the Clarisonic brush on my face, then use the Clarisonic device on the eyes. It felt a little self-absored to dedicate so much time twice a day, but I am a sucker for a science project.
After a week, I felt that when I woke up in the morning, my eyes were clearly less puffy. I looked fresher and more rested even if I had stayed up late. I’m so pleased with these quick results after just one week, I’m going to continue for a month. I would love to hear about you experiences with the Clarisonic Eye device. Did your eyes look less puffy? Were dark circles reduced?
