At my desk, above my computer, hangs this picture:
Now if that doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will!!?!
In all seriousness though, I’ve started a few new beauty routines recently to take better care of my skin. This winter has been a particularly harsh one in DC and the combination of freezing temperatures + dry heat in my apartment has done a number on my skin.
For Christmas, I asked for wrinkle cream. Yes, I’m serious. And my mom not only got me fancy Clinique eye cream but a whole line of new face wash products. I’m currently testing them out and will be providing a review early next month once I have my favorites.
The other big thing that has changed my life for the better is a recommendation of my dear friend Kristin: The Clarisonic.
When she first mentioned it, I was a complete skeptic. Honestly, I didn’t want to consider paying $100 for a face washing machine. I have hands right?! But since she and her lovely boyfriend Mike were staying with us for the weekend, I got to really see her use it and hear her success stories.
Kristin and I have both suffered with acne and then dry skin when we wash our faces too much. So after hearing her rave about the Clarisonic, and her promising me that if I bought it at Sephora I could return it after using it for a week, I broke down and decided to try it.
So far so good. This post is not sponsored. I paid the entire $120 for this little gadget. But as I’ve been using it, my skin definitely feels cleaner. Additionally, it’s helped remove blackheads around my nose as well as clear up any blemishes on my chin. I still get them once a month, yes, but they are a lot better than they were.
So what do you think? Have you used a Clarisonic? Do you like it? Would you recommend it to a friend?
