Clarisonics and Aeroplanes

Anonymous wondered what the difference between the 3-speed and the Pro Clarisonics is.  She also wanted to know some skincare tips to employ when traveling through the air.

The Clarisonic Pro is the one with 3 Speeds.  The Classic only has 2.

For airplane travel, definitely start out by upping your water intake two to three days before you start traveling. On the plane, skip the soda and make sure to drink at least a glass (or one of those dinky plastic cups they give you that always spills…) of water every hour, at least.

The morning of your departure, take a warm shower, and pat yourself dry rather than rubbing.  This will help your skin remain moist for a bit longer.  If you have time, apply a hydrating mask for five minutes. If not (or afterwards), apply a heavy, rich moisturiser (or preferably, a balm) while your skin is still damp and porous, and let it absorb for a good ten minutes, then blot your face with a tissue.  Apply a silicone primer to lock in the moisture, and if your skin can handle it, apply a sheer cream foundation, which will be much less likely to dry out your skin than other formulations.  Blend a cream blush onto your cheeks, and set lightly with a tiny bit of translucent powder.

Clarisonic Review

I know you’ve all been clamoring for a review on my Clarisonic Pro (I swear, half the questions I get are about it!), and it’s finally here! Kind of. I just sent my written review of such to Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog, and I’ll post a link here when it’s up (should be pretty soon.)  I’ll probably also do a short video review.  I’m still trying to figure out my new camera.  It’s a serious one!  My last one was pretty nice, but mostly did stuff for me-a really good amateur camera.  This one is definitely pro-level, and all the settings are pretty much manual, which means I have a lot to learn before I’ll be any good at it.  I also kind of want a mini-tripod before I film, but I suppose I could do a few videos without it… Keep checkin’ back for that link!
