(This is the SPRING facial hair remover. You can purchase it for $1.83 by this Amazon seller)

My friends would definitely qualify me as a TOUGH critic, seeing as I am always looking for pros AND cons when I buy a product. Hopefully, I can find more pros, than I can cons, and if I do, I usually tell all my girlfriends about the product, and they usually end up buying it one by one (I think I should get commission).

The SPRING Facial hair remover is one of the best products I have purchased under $5. It has saved me hundreds of dollars. I use to spend $5 every other week getting my upper lip hair threaded. I know going to get it threaded seems excessive, but waxing my upper lip hair was turning into a horrible idea, since I was taking off my upper lip SKIN! After numerous encounters with my skin coming off or being irritated, I decided that threading would be my only option (plucking was  an option, just NOT that realistic).

I luckily heard about this product on the Today Show, and decided  to conduct my own due diligence, and I heard some good reviews about it, so I decided to check it out!  Thank God, I did because I love it! It saves me $, time,  & gas. I can do it whenever I am free, and at my own convenience, and I can thread my upper lip hair twice a week, once a week or every other week incurring  NO additional costs!

As I stated before, I am ALWAYS looking for cons (here they are):

  1. You need to clean the spring after each use or each other use, or you will break out! 
  2. Mine rusted after sometime (I have yet to replace it, but I think I should do that soon)
  3. It hurt (but so does regular threading)

Tips on using it:

  1. Use the SPRING after showering, it hurts less!
  2. Wash your face after using the spring, and then use toner!
  3. If you’re confused about the turning technique, then check out a youtube video!

I hope you decide to give this product a try. It is cheaper than a latte at Starbucks, and could end up saving you way more than you expected.

The Clarisonic

Image1-4

(Here is my Clarisonic! The little brush is the deep pore cleansing brush, the big brush, which is attached, is the body brush. I love the Aveeno face scrub -I use it regularly in the morning. I use the OXY product at night with my Clarisonic. This way, not only am I taking off my makeup, but I’m protecting my skin against acne. The Neutrogena toner was inexpensive, and is an awesome, easy, addition to my daily skin care routine)

The Clarisonic is  the best purchase I have made for the year 2012. I bought the Clarisonic in September of 2012, and I must say I am still avidly using it & still in love with it!

I did not take before and after pictures, but I can tell my skin has improved by leaps and bounds. I have always been into skincare. I have used a variety of facemasks and washes, but with the Clarisonic, I do not use them as much, since I feel like I may be over working my skin if I do use a plethora of other products. Also, I am seeing such great results–why mess up a good thing?

I purchased my Clarisonic from Amazon.com (using my prime account). I paid around $180 for the full Clarisonic, which has 4 speed options, and a body brush. I know you can purchase it at Ulta, Sephora, or a variety of other stores (but why would want to pay $220, when you can buy it online for $40 less?).

I recently purchased replacement brushes, which were a tad pricy ($18 a brush). I bought the deep pore cleansing brush. Prior to using the deep pore cleansing brush, I used pore strips, and like most of my pore strips, they were grossly filled with blackheads & whiteheads. After using the brush for two to three weeks, I used a pore strip, and there were virtually no whiteheads or blackheads on it! I was actually a little annoyed that I had wasted a pore strip!

If you’re considering buying one I would go for it. I personally think I’m saving money, since I’m not wasting money on other products, or buying deep cleansing face cloths (which I used religiously to take off my makeup, prior to the Clarisonic).  Also, I feel like my toner is more efficient in helping even out my skin tone, and I feel like my drug store acne medicine is actually being absorbed by skin.

I hope this was helpful.

P.S. Here is an  Amazon link to purchase the Clarisonic!

P.P.S. If you have any questions/comments about which Clarisonic to purchase or general skin care questions or comments I’d love to read them or attempt to answer them! Do you have a Clarisonic? Do you love it?
