the good.. This cleans my face until it is squeaky clean. I feel like it does unclog my pores, especially if I wore any heavy makeup during the week. It also gives a nice facial massage.
the bad.. Overusing this becomes too harsh on my skin. By overusing, I mean using it more than 3x a week. When I first got this I used it everyday and I got breakouts. I decided that this 'purging period' lasted too long, so I only used it once a week. Slowly increased it to 2x a week now, which gave me the best results. I didn't particularly like the cleanser it came with also, but thats no biggie.
claims.. to give "reduced appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and improved skin tone" I do notice smaller pores the next morning of using this, but nothing too major. I don't have fine lines or wrinkles so I don't know about that. As for better skintone, I think only time can tell after using this for a little longer.
"should I get one?".. I'm 50/50 on this. Yes, if you have the money to splurge. It is nice to have for those times you crave a facial massage. I do agree that this tool does some serious deep cleansing. If you already have a good exfoliation system, then I'd say no. You can probably live without it. There's a lot of exfoliaters that can substitute for this. My favorite is St. Ives apricot scrub. Hope this was useful for those deciding. For those who have it.. love, like, or hate it?

Slowly bringing out the rest of my sandals and giving myself some fun colored pedicures.

After seeing all the good reviews and hearing about this from viviannadoesmakeup on youtube and other gurus, i'm really interested in seeing how this will work on my acne scars and spots.
2. Elizabeth and James Fairfax sunnies
Modern cat eye frame and the thin metal arms, yes yes yes
3. Marc Jacobs crossbody bag
A convenient and proper sized crossbody bag? this is the perfect one.
4. J. Crew pepper pants
Great casual weekend pants. I can already imagine many outfits with these. And plus, don't they look so comfy?

with spring just around the corner, i couldn't wait to get some color in my wardrobe. i've been seeing bright colors everywhere in catalogs and shops and i've been drawn to this bright coral color. first, i got these comfortable chino shorts from j.crew. then i found myself being attracted to the same color in this sheer, light top from zara. the color is absolutely perfect.
i'm kicking off my mini coral frenzy with mac's vegas volt lipstick, completely appropriate for today's weather and mood. with daylights savings time, the days already feel a little longer with the sun setting a little later. i'm so glad spring is almost here.
what bright colors are you guys attracted to?
