Friday Gilt Purchase: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

I have been using Origins products for a while now and don't consider myself as someone that has bad skin. But I'm wondering if in the last few years, yes, as I am I doing the MAX to take care of the skin that I have? I'll admit I'm lazy and its the guilt from not removing makup every night, I'm just not the super high maintenance girl that gets facials monthly and manicures weekly so I thought it might be time to invest in something that is going to help preserve the skin that I have. I had been hearing about this Clarisonic skincare brush for about a year now and finally went for it on Gilt today! I learned about this product from my friend Rania cause she has raaaaaaaved about it ever since she got it.

Here is how it went down....

me: hi turd
r: my skin soft turd.
me: what u do?
r: I usin' Clarisonic. You should get it turd.
me: wat dat?
r: awesome brush for your face turd.
me: show me.
r: Turd. It cleans your skin really awesome and make your pores smaller.
r: (sends sephora link).
me: $200bux for a face brush and you goto buy foam?? I'd rather buy a handbag turd.
r: It's expensive but it's worth it. I'm fuggin' hawt.
me: lol! turd, dat spensive! shiiiiiiiiiietttt!
r: turd, it's awesome, get it!

That is all a girl needs is for her friend to say ' it's awesome turd, get it.'

One year later...

me: TURD Clarisonic on Gilt today! I think ima try it.
r: send me dat link! I like clarasonic. what Gilt turd?

and so it goes...

I have one similar to this one of my dad's japanese friends sent to him for my mom...and she gave it to me. I have no idea who makes it, but I get similar results to microdermabrasion. You will be seriously addicted to it, it gives you some serious GLOW!
