the box

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

And lo, on the 9th day of December Dana spent a bunch of money on herself for Christmas.

(not that she was going to wait until Christmas to open it)

But what could it have been, to need such a big and impressive box? Well....


A Clarisonic Mia2 to be precise. If you haven't heard of it, it's a slightly expensive uber spiffy face washing device and according to 

"Clarisonic's patented sonic technology gently removes the impurities traditional cleaning methods leave behind, cleansing six times better than your hands alone. In just 60 seconds, its sonic action removes impurities from pores so that creams, serums, and moisturizers are more effective. And with regular daily use you'll notice a reduction in dry patches, oily areas, and blemishes."

The Clarisonic is one of those things that you hear a lot about in the beauty blogger world or on YouTube because so many people consider it the holy grail item of their face cleansing routine. I'm still in the midst of perfecting mine but the bumps on my forehead and the acne are definitely getting to me. It just seems as if no matter what I do nothing changes and that is incredibly frustrating. Now if you know me you know I'm willing to spend a bit of money on these types of things but only if they WORK. I have no problem with returning something that demonstrates a subpar performance and I plan to hold the Clarisonic to similar standards.

I'll definitely keep you guys updated, though I'm so-so on including pictures. My skin is probably the thing I am most self-conscious about so we'll see how it goes. Especially since there's supposed to be a 'purging' phase....
