mary kay skinvigorate

Whenever I see one of these automatic cleansing brushes, I can’t help but compare it to the Clarisonic. I own a Clarisonic Mia (first gen) and have had some success with it. But I had to scale back to using it twice a week because daily Mia use proved to be a bit much on my rather sensitive skin.

The new Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush landed on me at the right time because my baby pink Mia finally gave out and died just a couple of days after receiving the Skinvigorate brush. Yes, it is rather ironic but I guess fortuitous that I still have a brush to continue with my deep cleansing routine.

too faced chocolate bar

I generally don’t fancy Too Faced eye palettes because I’ve had a couple in the past and wasn’t blown away by the quality. However, I am such a sucker for cutesy packaging and had to have the Chocolate Bar Eye Palette. Eyeshadows in a chocolate tin? Of course, you need it!
