Clarisonic Mia 2 Review!

Hi lovelies!

How have you all been keeping this cold winter? The cold snap has been making me want to make like a bear and hibernate! The awfully cold weather outside goes hand in hand with insanely hot heating inside, all of which is making my skin act up from being bounced about between either extreme. As a result, I've really had to up my skincare effort made a lot easier thanks to this nifty little device - the Clarisonic Mia 2!

A bit of background.

I've actually owned a Mia 2 for over three years now, which is why I'm amazed I've never blogged about it before. I think it's because I wanted to test it out for a good length of time before I blogged about it, but then I got distracted by other things! I also got a bit lazy about using mine regularly, thanks to continually forgetting to charge it (not that it's hard at all, I've just been really bad with planning ahead of late). I was recently invited to a Clarisonic event where we learned more about the device and its benefits, all of which resulted in me vowing to be more disciplined about using it daily. As you may have inferred from the name, the Mia 2 is actually an updated model of the original Mia 1; the Mia 2 has two speeds and a built-in timer, which is why I opted for it over the original Mia when I purchased mine years ago.

How does it work?

The Mia 2 differs from other cleansing brushes in the market by utilising an oscillating sonic technology to deep clean the skin. The 'cradle-rocking' technology provides more than 300 movements per second to clean the skin more efficiently and gently, up to six times better than standard superficial cleansing. The technology is so gentle that it can be used on the surface of a raw egg yolk without breaking it. We were treated to a live demonstration where the Clarisonic was used on the surface of pantyhose without ripping it, while a competitor brush caused both rips and laddering. With six different brush heads available, you can easily change the brush head to the one that best suits your skin type.

NOTD - OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know?

Hi lovelies!

I hope you're all keeping warm and dry! I'm rugged up in my PJs, a fluffy sunshine yellow bathrobe and with a cup of hot green tea by my side as I type this! But hey, at least I have pretty nails...which brings me to the topic of this post!

As you may or may not know, I am currently hosting an Instagram challenge over on my Instagram page, #7dayswithmm. I thought it would be a fun way to challenge myself (and whoever decided to join me), and also have a bit of fun along the way! Just to sweeten the pot a little, I'm also giving away a set of Maybelline lipsticks (the ones I wrote about here) and an amazeballs Clinique gift pack! It's not too late to join in if you're so inclined!

Anyhoo, the theme for Day 4 was nails, so here's what I came up with! I used OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know for my base, OPI Liquid Sand in Honey Ryder for my middle finger, and an accent nail with dry marbling using Revlon Gold Coin and Orly Liquid Vinyl on my ring finger.

What do you think, lovelies? I'd love to hear your feedback!

Much love,
