Feeling Myself

24 Nov

Omg! My CM2 arrived today and I just finished using it. Why does my skin feel soooooo smooth?! I can’t stop touching it! I can’t wait to see how it looks and feels in a month’s time!

Today I ordered this here beauty, in my favorite hue, of course:

Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing System - Pink

The Clarisonic Mia 2 in pink. I’ve read about it on a few blogs, but this blog with its comprehensive review is what spurred me to give it a try! She featured the first Mia, however, I decided to go with 2 because it has 2 speeds, a 1 minute pulsing t-timer, and a protective travel case. I really hope this works because my skin has been acting up.  Also I could use some tightening of the pores. I’ll report back in a few weeks.
