With money no object, Oprah has access to the best of everything. And yet, she chose this $200 Clarisonic skin care device as one of her 20 fave products, dubbing it "a miracle massage for your face." Using cutting edge sonic technology of more than 300 movements per second, the soft brush gently loosens all that dirt and oil clogging your poor pores, sweeping your face clean in 60 seconds. Because it is twice as effective as cleansing manually, removing up to 6 times more makeup, your skin is better able to receive the benefits of any moisturizers and treatments you apply, resulting in improved skin tone, fewer fine lines, and smaller pores. (Plus, the built-in timer beeps every 20 seconds to ensure you don't overdo any part of your face, and automatically shuts off after a minute.)
We're in possession of possibly the world's most sensitive skin: Dry, Sensitive, Pigmented, Wrinkled (DSPW) - aka The Desperate Skin Type (!) - according to Dr. Leslie Baumann's The Skin Type Solution: A Revolutionary Guide to Your Best Skin Ever which means that pretty much anything and everything can cause a reaction, including cleansers that leave our complexion feeling tight and dry, despite what the label says.
Using the accompanying Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser for Sensitive Skin, which contains the cucumber, aloe & green tea extracts recommended for DSPW skin, left our face soft and non-irritated; however, you can use whatever cleanser you prefer with the Clarisonic. (We're particularly partial to Burt's Bees Orange Essences Facial Cleanser with Orange Oil.)
To celebrate this fabulousness in skin care, we're giving one away! Simply check out Clarisonic.com, unearth the coolest factoid (or review) & leave it here in the comments section, along with your email. We'll pick a winner on Friday, December 12th - just in time to give it as a gift to someone you love dearly...like yourself.
Otherwise, you can always pick one up at Sephora.com.
