I’ve got a new secret skincare weapon that I’ve just got to share with you! (Because it would be super selfish of me NOT to tell you all about it and the fact that I’ve been using it non-stop since I was given the priviledge to receive it a couple of weeks ago at an event.)
Well, just in case you may be saying “I don’t know what that is” while reading this, I guess it would only be fair for me to tell you all about it. The Cliff’s Notes version is that it it’s an awesome little face tool that utilizes gentle micro-massage action to gently cleanse skin so that you can better absorb facial products. In fact, there are all these fab clinical notes that have been published stating that you can remove six times the amount of makeup than you would with manual cleansing, reduce pore size, fine line and wrinkles while improving skin tone. Now, who doesn’t want this?!
So, after its wildly popular success, its great inventors came up with the Clarisonic Mia (a smaller, cuter version which I also scrub my face with religiously) and then TA-DA the Clarisonic Opal.
Us bloggers were treated to a little test preview at The Spa in the Trump SoHo tower. (Side note: Um, I was made to live in this building! It just exudes sexy swankness and I’m determined to one day have a penthouse suite there. Yeah, I said. Me. Stranger things have happened, right?! Hahahaha.)
I’m not sure of it you know it or not, but I’m obsessed with these crow’s feet that are starting to visibly creep onto my face (ewww!). So, I’ve been on a rampage to try and get rid of them. And now, dear Glamazons, I’ve finally found the tool that has done just so! This Opal is amazing in that it has the same vibrating, massaging technique as the Clarisonic except its used around your eyes. You know how they say you’re supposed to “gently pat” eye cream around the eye area lightly but don’t you ever wonder if you’re patting enough times or if you’re even doing it gently enough?! (I know I do!) The Opal takes all the guesswork out of this whole eye cream application business so you know that it’s getting done right and efficiently. And when things get done right and efficiently around your eye area, well, those pesky little crow’s feet just start to disappear over time like magic. And this Opal is so light and portable that you can take it everywhere with you!
Ah, I just love a skin miracle, don’t you!?
I know, I know the Opal is expensive ($245!) but believe me when I say that it’s totally worth the investment; and your face will thank you later. Also, if you can’t imagine being able to afford the actual Clarisonic, you can totally do its mini-me (the Mia) for $149.
You can feel good about your Mia purchase, too if you get the pink one since the brand is donating money to the national public service Look Good…Feel Better. This organization helps women with cancers manage their treatment and recovery with renewed spirit and greater confidence.
I’m telling you, after just one month with these products you’ll have the most lovely glowingest skin ever. Happy massaging!
