Hello, blogfriends! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
Like I said in my previous entry, Santa David really outdid himself this year. From gathering the essentials to spoiling me with goodies, I was overwhelmend with gifts. Especially since, I really wasn’t in the holiday spirit this year. The “busy”-ness of work and school really got to me and I just didn’t have enough time to get the holiday cheer in me!
Enough of the scrooge grumpiness! Here’s one of my favorite gifts from the hubby:
I got the Clairsonic facial and body cleansing system! I’ve only used it for the past three days and I can already tell the difference in the texture of my skin. Just FYI – I have horrible skin. After puberty hit, I was always prone to mild acne and breakouts. It’s died down in my twenties and definitely manageable now, but the scars from pimples past are definitely there and I am a daily makeup-wearer. *Le Sigh* What it would be to be a girl who could look faboush with just mascara and chapstick?! LOL.
It works great with my normal facewash and leaves my face refreshed and clean! I mean, it may be a mental thing I’ve created for myself, but I actually feel my pores being cleansed! :) I swear!
I’ve had a couple of pimples surface in the last 24 hours from using it as it brings out the trapped dirt and oil, but I’m hoping that once my face gets used to the system, that it will only provide benefits with my skincare.
For those of you who want an affordable, comparable option, Oil of Olay – ProX has a cleansing system that seems to be pretty reputable, too!
Most drugstores like CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walgreen’s sell them for $49.99-$59.99. You can even find it on Amazon.com for less than $40!
If you’re looking for a new skin-cleansing/maintenance system, go give it a try! I highly recommend it!
