Clarisonic Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head Review

Friday, July 22, 2011

I know you have heard me talking and raving about this machine for over a year now. I can't live without this baby and it has changed my skin and life for the better. I've been suffering from adult acne since I was 23 and since using this little miracle machine, my skin has done a 180. Since purchasing my Clarisonic Mia, I've been using the normal skin brush for sometime and then heard that Clarisonic had listen to us and came out with a new brush head. This Deep Pore Cleansing Brush helps cleanse oily skin, large pores, and those hard to reach areas.

Now since I'm pregos (pregnant) and my skin is going through some hormones issues on top of adult acne. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try this new brush head out. First let me share my routine so you can get a better idea of how I use my Clarisonic Mia. I use Philosophy Purity to cleanse everyday and 2-3x a week I use Philosophy Microdelievery to exfoliate. After receiving and trying the new deep pore cleansing brush with my routine, my skin looks better and clearer then it has the last 5 months (prego). My skin is soft, clean feeling, and looks a lot brighter (not rocking the prego glow yet). I would give it a A++ and would recommend to anyone that has oily skin or just want more of a deep cleansing on their skin. $25 each or 2 for $40 and available at Sephora (store and website), Clarisonic, Skinstore.com (20% off everything now w/ code FRESH20), and Nordstrom.

Makeup Melt Down & What's Out There To Help

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

I've had a lot of Glammies asking for my opinion on what's the best primer to melt proof your makeup. With these hot summer months upon us we need all the help we can get. To help from shine and melting off, you must use a primer that's silicone free. I have tried quite a bit of primers and have my top 5 that I have found that work with hot weather.

Cover Fx Matte Primer $39
Anti shine primer that also help with breakout. It's paraben free, oil free, fragrance free.

Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer SPF 15 $17-52
Mineral based and water resistant formula that's silky smooth in texture. No Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, and Phthalates. 

Lorac Aqua Prime $31
Water based that helps moisturize and preps skin.

Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer $30
Light weight gel that act like a barrier between skin and makeup.

Urban Decay De-Slick In A Tube $28
A gel that keep your skin matte all day. A little goes a long way with this one.

What have you found that works well for you? I want to hear from my Glammies.
