Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

I had fallen back into my lazy skincare routine of just using face wipes to remove my makeup, or even worse, falling asleep with it on. Although face wipes are a good quick fix, they didn’t give me that I-just-had-a-facial type of clean. This completely changed when my sisters bought me a Clarisonic Mia 2 for my birthday!

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

All of a sudden, I had smoother, softer, more toned skin with smaller pores and fewer blackheads. And I’ve only been using it for a few weeks now! Watch my video review and make sure to add this to your holiday wish-list if you haven’t already.

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review Title

The features of the Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleanser are:

  • 2 varying sonic speeds for even very sensitive skin
  • 1-minute pulsing timer
  • Interchangeable brush heads (some meant for different skin types and purposes, or simply replacements)
  • 2 Year Warranty
  • Waterproof device that’s rechargeable
  • Primes skin so it absorbs topical treatments better, such as moisturizers and serums

Happy Holidays!


Start Your Online Shopping at Ebates for Cashback!

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

This holiday season I’ve done A LOT of online shopping. As in, that’s pretty much it. The thought of braving the crowded mall terrifies me, and it’s so fun getting packages in the mail. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve probably seen a few quick tips about starting all your online shopping at Ebates. I wanted to explain a little more, because if you don’t, you’re literally leaving free money on the table. Annnnd……

That Makes Me A Sad Panda

For me, shopping and getting a deal go hand-in-hand, and I love earning cashback for things I was going to buy anyways! All you have to do is signup for Ebates here (it’s free), search for the retailer you’re wanting to purchase from, click it, and a new window opens up taking you directly to that retailer’s website. Then just make your purchase as normal, and you’ll earn a percentage of cashback! It’s that easy!

To get paid, you simply link your Paypal account to Ebates, and they will automatically put the money in your account every quarter. I’ve already earned over $150 cashback for shopping, so I’m a HUGE advocate.

The other great part is when you search for a retailer, all of the current promotions, coupons, or deals for that retailer will show up. You still get those deals, plus you double-dip by earning cashback when you start at Ebates. Let’s do an example.

Right now, Express is having 40% off their entire store sitewide. I found it on Ebates below, and if I start there I will still earn the 40% off, PLUS I’ll earn 2.5% cashback! I’ve seen certain retailers as high as 10% cashback, and it all really adds up!

Ebates also has many retailers running double cashback right now. It ranges from Macy’s at 6% cashback, to Sephora at 8%, and even retailers like LivingSocial, Amazon, and Walmart! Yep, they’re on there too.

Win a Set of Midi Rings!

“Midi rings. What the heck is that?” Followed by deer-in-the-headlights look. That’s the response I got from several salespeople on my quest for midi rings. It’s pretty simple actually. It’s basically a knuckle ring, or one that you wear on the upper part of your finger. Keeping reading to learn more, and for a chance to win your own set!

Style Trials Midi Rings Stacked

Midi rings have been popping up everywhere, and I especially love when they are stacked with a regular ring on the same finger. I also really love just a basic thin, metal band, although there’s a lot with cool designs such as a cross or chevron.

I was on the hunt for midi rings, and after going into several boutiques and finding they were $10+ a pop, or the salesperson had no idea what a midi ring was, I decided to look online. I found a TON of inexpensive options at Forever 21, which is awesome because I didn’t want to spend a ton on this trend, and wanted to stack a LOT of rings for either a boho chic or cool edgy look. I liked how they had cage rings and double banded midi rings to mix up the look. If you want something a little more high quality, Baublebar also has some GREAT midi ring options.
