Clarisonic miaFIT Review

I would like to first start by saying I have never used a facial cleansing brush before. This is the first and only facial cleansing brush I have used. This is my thoughts and I have been using this for several weeks now and have an opinions on this and well....

This was a great kit which came with the miaFIT, a charging base, the Urban Decay pore perfecting completion primer potion and 2 brush heads. There is one softer brush head (pink) and the other a bit more coarse (blue).


My usual skin care routine consisted of using a facial cloth then jumping into the shower to finish cleaning my face. I would use a variety of cleansers and rub with my hands. I would use an exfoliating scrub several times a week. The only thing I would have to do after showering is use eye makeup wipes to remove the additional liner that was hard to remove, yet easier to remove after a nice hot shower versus rubbing before the shower. 
I thought I was doing a great job. On my first use I decided to do my regular routine and then add the Mia Fit to the mix. I was completely shocked at the dirty scrub brush! All this time I thought I was cleansing my face properly and I was so wrong!. The brush was full of left over makeup that I apparently did not remove. This was even before I scrubbed near my eyes. I decided to cleanse my eyes as well and what do you know...no raccoon eyes after the shower!

How it Works: 
FIRST! Yes you can take it in the shower!! No worries the whole device can get wet.
After charging on the base for at least 18 hours..

There are 2 settings. a quick and more deep cleansing setting. Pressing the button 1 or 2 times for the setting you want. That setting will be saved until you change it again.

The 1st setting is quick and the brush actually buzzes to let you know when to change from section to section on your face. It will automatically shut off after all sections are complete. The 2nd setting is the same however each section is a little longer for a deeper cleansing with the harder brush. This is the setting I typically use daily. 

I add my favorite cleanser on the wet brush and done! I would recommend not using a lotion like cleanse since it tends to stay on the brush and is very difficult to clean your brush out. It tends to stay kind of stained with makeup until your next few cleanings with another cleanser. 



I do prefer the blue brush over the pink. I think the roughness and firmness of the brush felt more thorough in my opinion. 

This is a small, compact and very simple to use. It works amazingly well.
I honestly didn't believe the hype. I now realize why it is so loved and talked about.
Available at ULTA, SEPHORA and clarisonic.com

As for the Urban Decay Pore Perfecting facial primer: 
The packaging it very cute, however I would like for it to have a top that could be used to stand the product up with. It would be better, especially when you get down to the end of the tube. 
This has a silky, creamy, yet sticky consistency. The tackiness is a bit strange and does help with pore minimizing. It is a bit more thick and takes a bit more effort to smooth evenly to the face. It works fine with prolonging the wear time of my foundation. I have others that I prefer more, but everyone has a preference to consistencies. You may prefer this over another. Good thing is that it is easy to get a travel size to try out any Urban decay primer. It is very affordable.

Clinique Pop Artistry Collection

Clinique Pop Artistry Collection




This new line from Clinique is amazing fun to look at and while it seems like the colors are overly vibrant, you will be surprised at it being bold, yet subtle at the same time. Sounds weird I know, but you will see.



Sweet Pots Sugar & Lip Balm ($19.50) – www.Clinique.com
Delectable colour meets comfort and protection in this indulgent duo for lips. Clinique Sweet Pots – Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm is shaped like a macaroon, houses a dual sided product that treats lips to a sugary exfoliator on one side and a moisture packed balm on the other making them immediately kissable and ready for your favorite colour lip product.

The shade below is Pink Framboise, the scrub is mild, but feels great then applying the lip balm after is such a nice combination. 




Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Colour + Primer ($18):
 A pretty pop of bold yet see-through colour in one coat. This luxurious yet weightless formula has a built-in primer that glides on effortlessly on lips, leaving a long wearing smooth finish while keeping lips comfortably moisturized, instantly and over time. Inspired by candy, the lineup has 6 colourful shades with a lustrous shine and sheer payoff.

These lip glazes are very moisturizing and feel so soft on the lips. These look like a lip stick and look like the color will be bold and very opaque, but they have a nice hint of color when on the lips. 
Left to right, Licorice pop, sugar plum pop
sugar plum pop, licorice pop

 Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer ($18): 
A luscious pop of liquid-shine colour in one, full-coverage coat. With just one swipe of the applicator, Clinique Pop Lacquer lip colour + primer immediately moisturizes, and smoothes lips, while delivering intense color with a modern lacquered finish that wears for up to 6 hours. Developed in 10 irresistible Pop inspired shades, from creamy nudes to bold red, sweetheart pink and deep purple, this formula will always feel comfortable.





From Left to Right:
Nude Pop, Sugar Pop, Happy Pop




·         Clinique Lid Pop ($17):  A collection of nude to bold eye shadows with a silky, long-wearing formula that delivers an instant pop of colour for a virtually powderless look. Developed with patented, “slurry technology”, the formula begins as a smooth liquid. It then transforms through a slow baking process into a completely new distinct powder feel that’s luxuriously lightweight in texture and silky smooth to the touch. Richly pigmented, Lid Pop is presented in 8 vibrant shades that build and blend easily to desired level of intensity.

This shadow is in Willow Pop, the beautiful floral design with the clear acrylic container is so beautiful. I feel that this is better applied with the finger tips vs a brush, then bless out with a brush, 



     Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow ($18): 
A subtle pop of dewy colour for lips and cheeks, the formula is a nourishing tint formulated with safflower, jojoba and sunflower seed oils that feels luscious, yet lightweight, when applied. This fluid-gel slips on with ease thanks to a convenient wand applicator that delivers the perfect amount for every application. Clinique Pop Oil lip & cheek glow comes in 4 beautiful shades that leave a soft, buildable tint and provide an instant glow on lips and cheeks.
The shade I have is Nectar glow. It is bold and bright in the container, but is a nice just bitten look on the lips and cheek.  








Pep-Start Eye Cream ($26.50)  Exclusively at www.Sephora.com
Ready for anything. At 9 AM or 9 PM eyes look vibrant, refreshed, and hydrated with a quick snap, pop, swipe. Introducing Clinique’s NEW Pep-Start Eye Cream, a lightweight cream that instantly and over time brightens, awakens, and refreshes tired-looking eyes. The innovative custom-spherical massaging applicator de-puffs eyes to help keep them looking fresh, smoothes the way for makeup, and will make eyes look wide awake in just three seconds.
I can say that with using this for a couple weeks now and having those really tough mornings with puffy eyes, this has helped me with de puffing. This is a very light weight cream which is a thinner consistency than what I expected and does have a slight cooling effect.
