First World Problems

I have now had the Clarisonic Mia2 Brush for approximately three months and it is probably my favorite beauty item.  My mom was sweet enough to buy me one last year with some ultra mega discounts she got.  The Clarisonic is quite a splurge for the average shopper, running anywhere from $119 to $200, but let me tell you that it is worth it.  Clarisonic has amazing customer service too! With a Limited 1-3 year warranty and a 90-Day 100% Money Back Guarantee, how can you not try it?

My friend recently had a defective Clarisonic brush that stopped turning on/off out of nowhere, she called Clarisonic, they shipped one to her the very next day with two new brush heads and a label for her to ship her old one right back.  AMAZING customer service or what?

According to Clarisonic, their cleansing benefits include:

  • Removes 6X more makeup than manual cleansing
  • Leaves skin feeling and looking smoothe
  • Removes impurities that keep creams and serums from working their best
  • Gentle enough to use twice a day
  • Reduces oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes
  • Minimizes the appearance of visible pores

It only takes one minute to wash your face.  You use it for 20 seconds on forehead, 20 seconds on chin/nose, and 10 seconds on each cheek.  Voila!

I have the Mia2 (Retail $149) in this soft pink color, but it comes in all sorts of fun colors
Difference between the Mia and the Mia2, a nice travel case and a timer! Mia2 is the way to go. Check out the Clarisonic website for more info.

My last beauty rant involves something a little bit on the citrus side.  I have a bit of an obsession with The Body Shop's Satsuma line.  I started using their Satsuma Body Butter last spring and fell in love.  The smell is so natural, none of that artificial smelling yucky stuff.  The Body Shop is all about natural ingredients, against animal testing, vegetarian, fair trade, and protecting the planet.  My second favorite product from the Satsuma line is the body wash.  I love to shower, there is nothing like a good shower to rejuvenate you, but let me tell you that the Satsuma body wash gives a new meaning to the shower experience.  You can smell the lovely citrus even after you shower, and you will give shower envy to whomever showers after you.  It basically rocks my world and you should go check it out after you finish reading this.

  1. Has your face become smoother? I've wanted to try it out..but like you said, the price...

    1. Yes my face is totally smoother. I also get less blemishes and feel that my moisturizers really sink in skin deep. Amazing.
