This year for Christmas, I received a Clarisonic! It was on the old wishlist for a while and I’m so happy about it being in my bathroom. To be completely honest, I was a skeptic at first. I’m a huge fan of facials at the salon – but was this device really necessary? Did people really notice a difference in their skin? After chatting with a couple of user and reading the multiple stories on this skin care revolution I felt that I just needed to try it out myself. As it turns out – I’m in love with the thing. No, I don’t see a drastic different in my skin tone but the feeling, oh the feeling of my face is different after I use it and I love it. Don’t you ever feel that your cleanser just isn’t doing enough?
Since the turn of the New Year, I’ve not only attempted to declutter my loft but also my skin care and beauty products. I finally threw away those old lipsticks that I rarely used, rid my cupboards of any make-up samples that I’ve held onto “in case” and trying new skin care products. I’ve recently found my new favourite moisturizer but I’ve been looking for a new mask and cleanser for a while now. Over the break was the perfect time to test out the masks since I had some extra time on my hinds that I could really pamper my skin. I tried out some cheapies from the drug store and to no surprise, I was less than impressed. I’ve recently tried the Fresh Umbrian Clay Mask and loved it. It meets all the criteria for a mask that I enjoy: hardening, easily washes off, multi-functional (detoxifying and can also be used as a cleanser) and not strongly scented. I’m also trying out the Fresh Soy Cleanser and Lotus Eye Gel. It feels nice to have a new skin regime underway. Nothing like gearing up your face for the force of winter!
