When my birthday rolls around each year, I usually feel like I need to ask for things that I need rather than what I want..ie..new pots and pans, a mop steamer, or a vacuum. Which is totally a snooze fest and uber lame and I'm not sure why I do this..am I alone in this?
And this year was no exception. New pots and pans were on my idea list for Nate to look at. Along with a paper trimmer (fine..I'm the most boring of people ever;) and mixed in there was this little gem that deep down inside was my numero uno
The Clarisonic Mia 2 Skin Care Cleansing System
It's no secret that my skin is lacking in the luster and wonder department. I have freckles, zits and forehead wrinkle lines that you could loose money in. So when I saw one of my Instagram followees using it, who of course had flawless, glowing skin (and I'm not that dumb to think it wasn't partially due to photoshop;) but still....I immediately fell into her perfect advertising ploy and started doing some research. I'm a sucker like that.
But these babies don't come cheap. So I put it on my birthday wish list..as that..a wish.
And come birthday time, I was fully expecting a big box of new pans but instead, was totally shocked and my heart melted a little..when I opened up my new Clarisonic face cleanser.
The hubs had done some research....looked into other models that were far less strenuous on the pocketbook, read some comparisons online and in the end decided it was go big or go home. There are three versions of the Mia Cleanser...we went with the middle option.
And guys..no lie. I love it with my whole heart soooo much! It's like the most fantastic, fresh-feeling of clean ever. Like.. if I knew what it was like to have an actual spa facial then I'm sure this would be right up there with that. It's that good. It has a built-in timer while it scrubs and my heart sinks when that minute is up..
And as a dutiful blogger, I totally did a before and after. And can I just preface these pics by saying both your welcome and I'm sorry. Sorry..that you have to see my huge zit chin and I swear I do have eyelashes #blondehairproblems
So here are the before and after.
|plus my no smile/smile make it an even better before and after right;)|
And I will say that the lighting is not the best in the first pic but I still say there is a huge difference ;)
Taken just shy of 4 weeks in between photos...here is my report is:
* Less acne ( I do still have one on my chin but I'm blaming Aunt Flo for that one)
* Overall my skin has been much clearer far fewer blemishes
* More even skin tone
*and I feel like it's so much cleaner and radiant..that's right I said radiant!
So there you have it. And if I totally have you sold, start saving your pennies, put it on your birthday or Christmas list or just head HERE to get your own. You won't be sorry and no worries..I'm not making a cent off of any of this..so rest assured it's all me.
