Clarisonic Mia On-The-Go QVC Today’s Special Value

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on December 18, 2010

QVC’s Today’s Special Value is a good one.  It’s the Clarisonic Mia On-The-GoSonic Skin Cleansing System.  It’s priced at only $119.82 with 4 Easy Pays.  Shipping and handling is included.  You receive the Clarisonic Mia as well as 2 brush heads and 3 cleansers.  Color choices include berry, purple, green, white, turquoise, pink, cobalt blue, and tomato red.  There must have been a lot of “Jerseylicious” girls watching QVC over-night because the color choices of zebra and jaguar are already on waitlist!

I have the Clarisonic Mia and I absolutely adore it.  I got mine as a TSV years ago, before they had such a wide array of colors to choose from.  I had always wanted a Clarisonic but as a college student couldn’t justify the price.  Then the Mia was introduced at a lower price and then it was available as a Today’s Special Value and it was even cheaper!  I’ve been using it with my Philosophy Purity Made Simple cleanser daily since then.

If you’re still trying to finish up your Christmas shopping list, this is an amazing present and it’s guaranteed to be delivered in time for Christmas.  I would also note that colors start becoming sold out or waitlisted pretty fast whenever the Mia makes an appearance.  So if you are hoping to pick one up in time for Christmas don’t dilly-dally or your may miss out on your choice of color.  The price is good thru today, December 18th, or while supplies last.

Do you have a Clarisonic?  How much do you love it?

QVC Clarisonic Mia On-The-Go Sonic Skin Cleansing System Today’s Special Value

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on August 28, 2010

It’s Beauty’s Best Day on QVC. 26 full hours devoted solely to beauty products.  So of course the Today’s Special Value is a beauty product, and let me just tell you, it is a goodie.  Drumroll please…(insert rumbling drum roll in your head now)…it’s the Clarisonic Mia On-The-Go Sonic Skin Cleansing System.  The retail value is $186, but the Today’s Special Value price is only $119.82 and that includes shipping.  Plus, it’s available on 3 easy pay so you’ll only pay $39.94 a month of 3 months.

The Clarisonic Mia On-The-Go Sonic Skin Cleansing System comes with the Clarisonic Mia cleansing unit and pLink charger, one sensitive skin brush, one normal skin brush, 1 oz. gentle hydro cleanser, 1 oz. nourishing care cleanser, and 1 oz refreshing gel cleanser.  There are 8 colors to choose from (although, blue is already on waitlist).

I have the Mia and I absolutely love it.  I had always wanted a Clarisonic for years before I finally got it, but let’s be honest, back when there was only the original Clarisonic I could not afford the couple of hundred dollars price tag.  Then the Clarisonic people got smart and started adding smaller, but more affordable pieces.  I finally picked up about 2 years ago when it was a TSV on QVC and available for 5 easy pays.  It was closer to $175 when I picked it up so $119 is an absolute steal.

I’ve said before that I’ve been genetically blessed with pretty good skin.  Not flawless, but really not that bad at all.  Even so, I saw amazing results after I started using the Clarisonic.  My skintone evened out and I started to see less redness on my face.  My face was also a lot brighter.  My skin also got amazingly soft.    I have been using it almost everyday since I got it with my Purity Made Simple cleanser and now cannot imagine life without it.

Now if you’re not familiar with the Clarisonic Mia, know that  it is smaller than the original.  Personally, I like that it’s smaller because it’s a lot easier to use on certain areas of your face.  And obviously, it was made with travel in mind given that it’s name includes “On-The-G0”.

The Clarisonic Mia (and any Clarisonic for that matter) can be used with just about every skin cleanser.   You don’t have to use the product that comes with it.  Like I said, I use mine with Purity Made Simple and have also tried it with Olay products.  The brush heads last between 3 and 4 months. 

Apparently, QVC only offers the Clarisonic Mia when it’s a TSV.  I didn’t know that.  So today is the only day that it will be available from QVC or QVC until the next time it is a Today’s Special Value.  Oh, and just for reference, Sephora offers the Clarisonic Mia for $149, but you only get 1 1 oz. cleanser and 1 brush head.  So clearly the $119 price tag for a much larger kit on QVC is a steal.

Do you have a Clarisonic?  Will you be picking one up?  Think its a waste of money?

Philosophy Your Best Skin 3 Piece Skincare Classics Collection

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on August 12, 2010

If you’re a Philosophy girl you probably already know that Philosophy has a few shows on QVC today.  No Today’s Special Value, but they do have a great “Try Me” priced item.  The Philosophy Your Best Skin 3 Piece Skincare Classics Collection is priced at $29.96.  In this kit you receive:

  • 4 fl oz purity made simple one-step facial cleanser
  • 4 fl oz microdelivery micro-massage exfoliating wash
  • 1-oz microdelivery vitamin c/peptide crystals
  • 1 fl oz microdelivery activating gel

    Yes, four products are listed.  I guess one of the products is supposed to be considered a free sample.  Why?  I have no idea.  Seems that they could have just said this is a four piece collection but whatever. 

    Let me just tell you, Philosophy is my everyday skincare regimine.  I’ve been using it for years.  While I have always been blessed with good skin my Sweetie was not.  When we first met he was using soap to wash his face!  SOAP!!!  I guess I shouldn’t be suprised since he is a guy and all.  He was suffering from breakouts and redness.  I switched him to Purity Made Simple as soon as he was convinced it was okay for a guy to use and his face cleared up almost immediately.  He’s been a loyal follower ever since.

    If you haven’t tried Philosophy’s skincare line but have always wanted to, this is a great kit to start with.  Especially since it is priced so low.  I should also add that I use the Purity Made Simple with my Clarisonic and it works beautifully…just in case you’re a Clarisonic user.  Also, remember that with QVC you get a 30 day return period.  You can return the product even if you’ve used it.  So really you have nothing to lose.

    New Product – CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream

    Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on June 15, 2010

    Anyone who has used public transportation knows what a godsend hand sanitizer is.  The problem with hand sanitizer is that it is usually very drying on your hands thanks to the high amounts of alcohol found in it.  Usually after using just a dab of hand sanitizer I’m jonesing for a big dollop of hand lotion.  Finally, the wonderful people at CLEAN have combined the best of both worlds.

    The new CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream is alcohol free and contains vitamin E, avocado, grape seed, and jojoba oils to moisturize your skin.  Benzethonium Chloride kills 99.9% of germs on contact and shields your hands to continue fighting off germs.  It’s also unscented so it won’t clash with your favorite fragrance.

    I’ve only used this product a few times (I’m not a crazy germaphobe), but I could immediately feel a difference between regular old anti-bacterial hand sanitizers and the CLEAN product.  There wasn’t any feeling of dryness, nor was there that obnoxious alcohol smell.  This product is an absolute must have for any city beauty addict who lives a life of subways, buses, and taxi cabs.  I picked mine up at Sephora for $10.

    New Product Alert – Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cloths

    Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on June 9, 2010

    I am a total Philosophy girl when it comes to my skin care regimen.  I’ll admit that I am extremely lucky and blessed to have good skin, but that just gives me more of an incentive to be pro-active in taking care of my skin.  I’ve been using the Purity Made Simple cleanser since I was an undergrad.  It has always done an excellent job of getting all of my make-up off, including every last bit of eye shadow, eye liner, and mascara.  So you can imagine that I was a little more than excited when I saw that Philosophy has created Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cloths.   Ideal for traveling, just wipe your face with these pre-moistened cloths to remove all of your make-up as well as the dirt and oil that builds up on your face throughout the day.  And guess what…there’s no need to rinse anything off.  I don’t think I would ever use these to replace the actual Purity Made Simple Cleanser, but I love the idea of having a Purity on-the-go option.   Throw a couple in your purse, in the glove compartment, or in your gym bag and you’re good to go.

    It looks like these are only available on QVC for right now.  For $20 you get 45 cleansing cloths.
