  • Beauty Survival Kit: What Every Woman Should Have in Her Purse

    Have you ever been invited to a last minute client meeting on ponytail day, or forgot about happy hour with the girls with no time to freshen up? These can happen to anyone but they don’t have to stop you from looking and feeling your best. We’ve put together a list of the essential items every woman should have at her disposal in case of emergency. Remember, a great skin care regimen can’t be replaced by these, but these could help you in a pinch!

     

    Q-tips: These are a life saver; use them with your hand lotion to remove any smudged makeup to keep you from having dreaded raccoon eyes.

    Sewing kit: Button fall off or get a rip in your outfit? A sewing kit is a great way to make repairs on-the-go.

    Double Sided tape: Not quite on the sewing bandwagon? Double-sided tape can also do the trick to fix rips or keep your clothes in place.

    Stain remover: Don’t let a spill ruin your outfit; keep a travel stain remover on hand for those unfortunate mishaps.

    Blotting tissues: Oily skin can make you look tired, give your skin a quick refresh by removing excess oil. Even if you don’t have your compact, your complexion will thank you and you will arrive fresh faced.

    Hand lotion: The stresses of a busy day and the harsh soaps found in public bathrooms can wreak havoc on your skin. Enter hand lotion. You can also use a small drop to slick back unruly flyaways for a sleek, sophisticated ponytail.

    Lip stain or gloss: Brighten up your lips and use a little extra on your cheeks to give your face a rosy glow.

    What else would you add to your beauty survival kit?

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can the Clarisonic body brush help with keratosis pilaris?

    First things first, Dr. Robb explains Keratosis Pilaris and then answers Tamica’s question about using the body brush to help with this skin condition. If you have ever wondered if the Clarisonic is suitable to use with skin conditions, watch the video to find out!

    Dr. Robb says this is commonly known as K.P. or chicken skin because it looks like a plucked chicken. People with K.P. usually get bumps on the back of the arms or the sides of the legs. The Clarisonic is great for smoothing those out, exfoliating the skin, keeping your skin soft and smooth, and then you can apply your moisturizer. Sometimes you can go to the doctors for this condition and they have certain types of acids in those moisturizers to help soften that area and keep it soft and smooth.  The Clarisonic body brush is the first step to that.

    Congratulations to Tamica Damara who has won a Clarisonic Mia for submitting this question!

  • Sonic Resolutions: Feel Good in 2012

     

    It’s that time of year when everyone reflects on the past 12-months and tries to think of one thing they will resolve to complete in the upcoming year. We’ve compiled some beauty resolutions that if kept, will keep you feeling and looking wonderful well into the New Year.

    Get more sleep: Fully restful sleep ranging from 6-8 hours will not only have you feeling refreshed, it will invigorate your entire body. Sleep gives your body time to heal and the supercharge you need to get through a busy day. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing.

    Drink more water: The benefits of drinking water are enormous. Water flushes out your system removing impurities from your body and skin. If drinking 8 glasses of water sounds horribly boring, add lime, lemon or orange slices to spice it up. A sprig of mint or slice of cucumber also makes for a refreshing drink. Cheers!

    Commit to a skin care routine: Start the year off strong with a dedicated routine for your skin. Look into products formulated for your skin type and determine any specific needs your skin may need whether it’s acne or more hydration. Once you determine what your skin needs, stick to your routine daily. Don’t forget your SPF!

    Laugh more: Laughing and smiling will help you not only look better but you will feel better too. Laughter lightens a room and makes everyone around you happier.

    What is your feel-good resolution for 2012?

  • Clarisonic on Good Morning America as the “Hot New Skin Treatment”

    The Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System was recently featured on ABC’s Good Morning America in a segment titled “The Hot New Skin Treatment”. Consumer Technology Contributer for ABC News, Becky Worley, did her own test drive of the Clarisonic to prove the system’s deep cleansing, reducing pores and fine lines capabilities.

    Check out Becky’s experience with the Clarisonic below to see her results!

    In her test drive, Becky used the Clarisonic on the right side of her face for five days and just soap and water on the other side. Becky said the Clarisonic side felt cleaner, and she thought she saw a very subtle reduction in the appearance of fine lines. She also tried the fluorescent makeup test and commented that Clarisonic did an amazing job removing the makeup while the soap and water side did not.
    Becky also acknowledged less expensive face brushes on the market but preferred the Clarisonic because it was more invigorating! Becky also mentions the Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System which is the smaller, travel-friendly model and the Clarisonic Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System. Check out the different Clarisonic Systems available to you on our website.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can my Clarisonic help with blackheads?

    Blackheads are yellow or blackish bumps or plugs caused by excess oils on your skin. In this video, Dr. Robb explains what the Clarisonic can do to help!

    Dr. Robb says, that Clarisonic has never actually done a blackhead study to officially document it’s benefits for reducing blackheads; but we know that overtime yes it will.  He says that blackheads are really hard and tough to get at, but what you should try is our Deep Pore Cleansing brush head. Its patented dual action technology allows for deeper and better cleansing than washing the face by hand.

    Featured Opal Secret stories:

     “Redneck” Sonic Regimen

    Well, I don’t own a Clarisonic Opal so here’s what I do instead…and don’t laugh… I use the back side of my Sonic toothbrush to help apply my night serum, (different brush head of course). I realize that this is no comparison to the Clarisonic Opal but I’m using what I’ve got because I know how beneficial it is. So until I get the real thing, this is what I do.

    Men’s eye remedy

    I am a guy who takes pride in his appearance. Recently I have been noticing my eyes have look tired and puffy (probably the increased stress of trying to run my live like a crazy person through work and school, trying to do the work of five people all by myself, deffinately not recommended..) I started to look for a solution. Your eyes can easily be the first thing someone will notice about you and they are usually first to show any signs of aging!… So I set out for a way to cure. To tackle the puffiness I began using a de puffing eye gel. I started with the Body Shop’s Eye Depuffer. It worked wonders I would notice my eyes significantly decreasing in puffiness. Much of it was extra water under the eye lids so at times I looked and still looks like I am crying, not to say my eyes get red and I make an ugly face, anyway I think you get the picture. My next step was to find a eye cream to help keep my eyes bright and awake and get rid of that oh so chic I just got punched in the eye look. I ended choosing Clique’s all about the eye, it was very feminine but the sales associate at Sephora helped me realize that the skin around a woman’s eye and around a mens eye really aren’t all that different. After that? poof those dark circles were minimized. My eyes were back in business and I am glad I took that step… lets be honest who wants to look punched and puffy?

    The BEST under eye trick

    When I was in college I worked at a makeup counter at the mall. One of my co-workers was an amazing makeup artist that had just moved from NYC so I was so excited to learn his tips and tricks. The one thing that he told me that I remember to this day and always share with people is……when applying under eye cream ALWAYS apply it and blend it from the outside of your eye inwards towards your nose. Why you ask? Well….the fine lines and crows feet that form tend to start out closer to the inner corners of your eye and expand outwards so everytime you put on under eye cream you want to be lightly tapping and blending the cream in the opposite direction they form to make sure the product really gets in there. If you put on under eye cream twice a day that is a lot of pulling and dabbing on the under eye area over time so it’s better to be smoothing it on in the opposite direction that they form. I swear this works! I used to have one line in particular that was fairly deep and I would notice it when I would get tan because it would be white from squinting while I was out in the sun. Since I started applying under eye cream from the outside of my eye towards the inside my lines have completely and very noticeably smoothed out! For some reason I had always put under eye cream on from the inside out which I know a lot us you do becuase it seems more natural to apply it this way but it’s the complete opposite of what you want to do. I love sharing this trick with people and I swear you will notice a difference if you try it!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Is the Opal safe to use with eye fillers like restylane?

    Restalyne is an injectible filler used to achieve a more youthful look without plastic surgery. In this video, Dr. Robb tells us whether the Opal is safe to use in conjunction with eye fillers.

    Dr. Robb recommends you talk to your skin care professional after they’ve given you the fillers.  From our experience it is perfectly safe to use after you healed up from the injections the following day. He says that if you’re worried about the Clarisonic moving the fill around your face, that isn’t going to happen.
