Clarisonic Mia 2 First Impression!

So I just went out to Ulta today and bought the Clarisonic Mia 2 ($150)!!! I'm so excited for this! 

Here's what mine looks like.

My skin concerns

1. Breakout-prone on nose, chin, cheeks, and jawline
2. Oily on T-Zone throughout the day
3. Tiny blackheads on nose and chin
4. Uneven tone and texture
5. Hormonal breakouts

How I justified buying the Mia 2

I've been relatively clear by using the skin care system, but I've had some tiny lingering breakouts on my nose, chin and cheeks for over a month that just won't surface and won't go away. They're black and white heads that need to be extracted by an esthetician. 

I tried using the Michael Todd True Organics Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub ($18.50), and it made my skin soft after using it, but it wouldn't last and it wouldn't actually exfoliate. So it still left me with the roughness and dead skin on my cheeks and chin.

My First Impression

I just used the Mia 2 for the first time on the High setting with the Sensitive brush head (comes with the device) and it was so quick! 
It felt so good that I did it for a second time to exfoliate my skin really well.

The Steps I took:
  1. Splashed warm water on face.
  2. Wet the Mia 2 brush & dispensed 2 pumps of my skin cleanser directly onto the brush head of the Mia 2.
  3. I used the device on the areas of my face as instructed (Forehead, nose, chin, cheeks) and it felt amazing! It was very soft and got a good lather going with my cleanser.
  4. Examined my face in the mirror and noticed that those pesky little black and white heads had been exfoliated! They are not completely gone of course, because that'd just be ridiculous. But I'd say there's a 90% improvement in the texture of my skin, now. Very smooth. And when you look at my face, there's no noticeable dead skin like there still was after using the Michael Todd True Organics Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub.


I'm SO incredibly impressed and very happy I finally spoiled myself with this magical device. I would recommend everyone use it! It's highly effective. 

Until next time!

My new babies! Sigma Brushes


I wanted to take some time to tell you about these new amazing brushes that I received!

I've been contemplating on getting these for about a year. They've caught my attention so much on YouTube from so many different beauty guru's that I finally decided to look at the website... I must say, I should've done that a LONG time ago because then I would've seen how cheap they are and would've had them so much sooner!

Since SO many people have them, and they're so popular, might as well try them, right?

I've been wanting new brushes because I've been using the Bare Escentuals brushes, and they're just feeling scratchy and not good on my face. And I haven't been at all happy with how my makeup has been applying. Bronzer isn't blending good and I even thought my concealer was the wrong color for me because it wouldn't blend with  my Bare Escentuals concealer brush. Ended up taking a lot of time!
Plus, I've had these Bare Escentuals brushes for about 6 years, so I figured it's time to get some new really good quality ones.

The Sigma brushes have really changed my makeup application dramatically. So I want to make sure everyone knows about these little gems in the makeup world :)

This is the kit that I bought!
I've had them for 6 months, now and they're still as soft as when I first got them!
Click here to view the collections!

These are MAC quality brushes and HALF the price!!

They also have them in different colors like black, turquoise, baby blue, and purple.

I urge you guys to try them!! Seriously if you don't like them, just send them back.. but I highly doubt that will happen!

Go here and you won't be disappointed! At least look at the prices of the individual brushes! They start at $10.00!!

New iPhone 5 and Super Pretty New Cases!! YAY!

I'm SO excited about this new iPhone 5! I love, love, love it! I could go on for days about this phone, but I'll go ahead and focus on these awesome new cases I got for it in the mail today :)

I stumbled upon these while looking for a case that was made of TPU material. 
I've always had phone cases of this material and I highly recommend this kind if you want a case that isn't so bulky. 

I fell in love with TPU cases about 5 years ago, and have never had any other type of case since then. (AND I DROP MY PHONE A LOT!)

This material gives you the bendy, flexible benefit (like silicone) and also a sturdy plastic type feeling so that it doesn't stretch out, (like plain silicone cases usually do... drives me nuts).

So, when you drop your phone, it just bounces and no damage comes of it, and it doesn't break or fall off like those stupid snap-on plastic cases do!!

Anyways! My boyfriend wanted a red case, so I saw this on amazon and I thought, "Well, perfect, found a red one". Then, of course put it in my amazon shopping cart, but I wasn't able to pick one color! I didn't want them to send me a random color that I didn't want... 
So I went back and actually read the whole description.. like I should've done in the first place! And it said that you actually get ALL 9 CASES!! I was super excited!!! All for only $15.99! And $21.35 after shipping... which is only $2.37 per case including shipping!!

Now, I know you can't find that price ANYWHERE at those kiosks in the malls. They're such rip-off's there!
Killer deal, right?! So I was wayyy excited! Especially since I already had my phone for a few days, and needed a case ASAP!

Of course, since my favorite color is orange, I chose the orange case!

A few air bubbles near the top it looks like, but I've found that they go away after the phone "settles in".

Love these cases! 

*** Update 3/1/14: Still using these cases and rotating between all of the colors and I'm still in love with them! :D

Have a good day!!
