Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #6

Make Her Up Must Have's 2014

 

Young or old is there any better gift then beautiful skin? If you want to spoil someone on your list or yourself look no further then the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution Kit.  I have an older Clarisonic but this new system is a whole new kind of genius. With an extra gentle cleansing brush and the skincare system your skin will be softer, smoother and it even will help with pesky age spots.

I am close enough to 40 to throw a rock and hit it, and I can definitely see my skin changing. Along with discoloration I have started to notice my skintone has been lackluster. At this point I will try anything to improve my skin and keep it looking good.

After using the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance kit for 3 weeks I can say this is the best Clarisonic version yet! Within the first few days I noticed my skin was looking clearer. After 3 weeks use I have noticed my pores look smaller and the best part my skin tone looks much more even, I had some discoloration on my face from too much time in the sun and that is starting to fade. My skin is looking better than it has in a very long time. I love how clean my skin feels after and my skin serum can really get into my skin and work its wonders.

Who wants a toothbrush” And I’m with you on that you stick a regular brush in a stocking prepare to duck when your kid opens it. But who doesn’t love a really amazing toothbrush and its the type of thing its easy to want but sometimes we won’t budget for ourselves.

CYMERA_20141209_162619

I used to have a Sonicare and the charger got lost so I have been trying other kinds of brushes both manual and electric but something was always missing. Then this little heart breaker the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean entered my life and it was love at first brush. First off it comes in black? A black toothbrush? My signature color now in a brush, swooning.

But don’t let the cool new color options fool you there is much more to this brush.This high tech electric toothbrush has an elegant, modern look the handle has a nice heft to it feels more like ceramic then plastic. And boy does she clean, it has 5 different mode to clean even whitening and gum care! And recharging is a breeze just by drop it into its heavyweight glass tumbler or via its USB-powered case when you’re traveling. For the clean freak or techie in your life they will love this gift.

Philips-Sonicare-AirFloss

Ok so I might be a brushing addict. You can ask Jocelyn after being friends for almost 30 years even she thinks I am crazy how much  I like to brush my teeth. My secret I hate to floss. My teeth are crowded on the bottom which becomes floss tug of war then I win when it slams into my gums making me wince. Not so much fun.

When I heard about the Sonicare AirFloss I was intrigued. Could it keep my from lying to my dentist about supposed religious flossing habits and get the little buggers clean?  I love it. I can fill the chamber with water or mouthwash (my fav) and just line it up between my teeth and push the button.A burst of air sends the liquid between my teeth removing plaque and food brushing left behind. And using it with mouthwash leaves my mouth feeling super fresh and clean. The AirFloss is as fun to use as it is functional. And who doesn’t love a clean mouth?

Philips Sonicare AirFloss 89.99
Give the gift of your dental hygienists’ love with the Philips Sonicare AirFloss, which cleans your entire mouth in just 30 seconds and is proven to remove 5X more plaque in between teeth than a manual brush, Colorful interchangeable nozzles makes it a great gift for yourself or to share.
