Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

Okay so I know I’ve talked about this product when it was first introduced but I haven’t talked about it since I have personally used it.  This is why I’m posting about this brush again.

I was sooo excited to receive my brush.  I’ve heard awesome things about face cleansing brushes but I just could never justify spending $100+ on a brush.  When Mary Kay came out with theirs and it was actually affordable, I was so excited!!  I did have a couple of things go through my head due to the price.  One being, due to the price, was it a quality product?  All I can say is the day that the brush arrived on my doorstep, I was over the moon.  It honestly felt like Christmas morning and I was coming down to see what Santa brought me.  Of course I had to try the brush right away.

From the moment I took it out of the box, put the brush onto the device, put the batteries in, and started washing my face, I could feel a huge difference.  I loved the way it felt on my face.  There are 2 different speeds which I love.  The stronger speed is better for my face, personally.  I did wash just half of my face with the brush and the other half as I normally would do with just my hand and a washcloth.  Umm…the difference was incredible!  The side of my face that I used the brush on, it felt so soft and smooth and it appeared brighter.  After washing my face, I applied my toner like I normally do and the side I washed with the brush, the cotton ball was clean.  The side with my hand and cloth, there were still traces of makeup and dirt.  So does this brush really clean like it says it does?  YES! YES! YES!!!  After using the brush for a week, I noticed a HUGE difference in the way my acne clears up and that my pores appear smaller.  I don’t have a ridiculous amount of acne but after giving birth to my 4th daughter, my skin has not been the same and I have the occasional break outs.  I’m really impressed with how quickly my skin clears compared to before.  I know it’s because I’m now getting a deep down clean.

You can use this brush with any of our cleansers.  I use the 3-in-1 cleansing bar and can still use the brush perfectly fine.  All in all, I want everyone to have a cleansing brush.  Seriously!  You won’t be sorry!!!

The device itself is $50 and it comes with 2 brush heads.  It is recommended that you change your brush at least every 3 months so the basic kit comes with about 6 months worth of brushes.  The brush refills are 2 for $15.  Umm hello!  AWESOME PRICES!!!!!!  Now go and order yours!!  🙂

Mary Kay @ Play Baked Eye Trios

I am seriously obsessed with the Mary Kay @ Play Baked Eye Trios in Tuxedo.  My favorite thing about baked eye makeup is that you can use it wet or you can use it dry.  Of course if you use it wet, you are going to achieve a more vivid, vibrant look.  Now since you can use the baked eye makeup wet, I have become addicted to using the black in the Tuxedo as my eyeliner.  In fact, I rarely use any other eyeliner.  This is my new go-to eyeliner product.

All you do is take an angled brush (as pictured), get it wet, and dip it into the eye color of choice.  Next, apply it along the lash line and voila!  Eyeliner!  Now because I have awkwardly shaped eyes/lids, I personally like to apply my eyeliner along the bottom lash line.  Of course you can apply to one or the other or both. 🙂   Here is another fun little tip when using the baked eye makeup– after you have applied your mascara and it has dried, take an eye makeup brush, dampen it, dip into the eye color of choice and apply to the tips of your eyelashes for some extra color and a unique, fun look.  As you can see with the Tuxedo, it has fun sparkle in it so when applying the color to the tips of your eyelashes, your lashes will sparkle.

The Baked Eye Trios are $10+tax each.  AMAZING price for such quality product!!  Now go buy some and become addicted just like me. 🙂
