Trying New Clarisonic Brush Heads

First impressions, Product reviews, Skin, Tools, Videos
Happy Sunday! I found this footage on my computer and realized I never finished editing and posting this video. I filmed a first impression of the newest Clarisonic brush heads: the Uplift Firming Massage Head and the Sonic Foundation Brush Head, Uplift Firming Massage Head This massage head is meant to massage your face, neck, and chest. I've seen some reviews mention using this to apply serums. It's $54 alone or now comes with the Clarisonic Smart Profile (which may have been renamed??). It can only be used with the Smart Profile model. My first impression: It simply vibrates. I thought it would rotate or something, but it doesn't. It's difficult to use this on your face except for large areas like the jawline and forehead. It's pretty expensive, especially…

Current Skincare Routine: Morning and Night

Hey, everyone! I've had a crazy time lately, just trying to get my last month of grad school (!!!) in order. Anyway, after my Clarisonic review last time, I got a couple of requests for a skincare routine. So, here's my current skincare routine, both morning and night! And yeah, I couldn't give up the opportunity to use that ugly screencap as my thumbnail photo for this video... and this post. Whoops! :D I am in no way saying that I've found the perfect products of life and that I'm set on this routine forever. This is just what I've been doing lately, and I've generally been very happy with it. It doesn't mean I'm not willing to take suggestions if you know of better products! I hope you find this…

Sephora VIB Haul 2014

Sephora VIB Haul 2014

Beauty hauls, Videos
Earlier this month was my favorite makeup holiday of the year: Sephora's annual 20% off VIB sale. I take this shopping trip very seriously. I went armed with multiple lists and a friend. And when a few things I wanted weren't in stock, I went online and ordered more the next morning. However, you've probably noticed that this post is going up pretty late, considering how it's been about three weeks since the sale. I didn't actually get my package until a week and a half after I placed my order because Sephora was backed up, but they were really great about the delay and gave me 250 points. After that, I went through two attempts to film the haul and had to edit the video on top of finishing my first…

Clarisonic: Three Things That No One Talks About

Clarisonic: Three Things That No One Talks About

Product reviews, Skin, Tools, Videos
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATjfGABy1XQ&w=560&h=315] Hi, everyone! I wanted to make a video about the Clarisonic, because as much as I love mine, there are three things I've found out about the hard way. Things that I really wish someone had told me when I first bought it. Here's the recap in case you don't want to take notes ;) Battery life - the battery life gets worse over time. After a year and a half, I get about half the charge that I did when it was brand new. Tap water - my skin reacted poorly to the Clarisonic for a while, and I realized it was because the tap water at one place I was using it had harsher water than what my skin was used to. Make sure you have clean,…

Permanent Favorites – Clarisonic Mia and Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove

Permanent Favorites – Clarisonic Mia and Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove

Product reviews, Tools
As I've started gathering items for my upcoming May favorites post, I've come across two things that I know will always make that list. So, rather than list them every single month, I decided to write about them separately. 1. Clarisonic Mia I got the Clarisonic Mia in lavender last January, and it is hands-down the best skincare item I own. I have oily (and thus, pimple-prone) skin, but the biggest skin problem I've had is that the harsh chemicals in acne creams and treatments gave my skin teeny bumps and redness. I kept mistaking it for acne, so I kept putting those chemicals all over my face, making it worse. I started looking into the Clarisonic because I wanted something to help even my skin's texture, clean deeper, and…
