My New Facial Brush: Clarisonic Mia Prima

Hey everyone! It’s been a while! I’ve been busy with life. But, I’ve definitely missed blogging and sharing my thoughts about products…food…adventures..and so on! 😭

Tonight, I would love to share a facial skin care product. It’s called the Clarisonic Mia Prima. I used to use the Clarisonic Mia (not the Prima). The Prima is a new product from Clarisonic. It’s supposedly a more affordable facial brush from Clarisonic. The term afforable may be different from one person to another. My facial brush was $99 plus tax. Compared to my first Clarisonic Mia, yeah, I guess it’s more affoardable, haha! My previous one was more expensive. Anyways, here’s some information on this facial brush. I’m just going to go over the main points. If I don’t cover something you’re curious about, feel free to ask. 😊

About Clarisonic Mia Prima:

Let’s unbox it!

You have a choice between white and pink. I chose pink. If I chose white, my makeup would stain it like crazy. I chose the darker color for that reason.

It comes with a USB charger and a booklet.

I’ve had the Clarisonic Mia Prima for only 1 week. So far, I really don’t have much to say. I’ll do a full review when I’m ready to give my thoughts on it. There we have it. Has anyone used the Clarisonic Mia Prima before? What are your thoughts on it? Is it worth it? I was pretty skeptical about it considering the negative reviews on it. Share your thoughts! Yay or nay?

Update: Trader Joe’s Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum

Trader Joe's Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum

Trader Joe’s Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum

I have officially finished my second bottle of Trader Joe’s Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum! After finishing it, I decided not to purchase it again. It’s not because I don’t like it — I do. It feels lightweight on the skin. It moisturizes my skin. It didn’t break my skin out. From my experience with the serum, the hydration didn’t last too long. It was more of a temporary fix. That is why I decided to add organic jojoba oil into my skin care routine in the first place. Organic jojoba oil only contains one single ingredient, which is Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil. It’s a simple and natural skin care product. Perfect for minimalists! The organic jojoba oil does what the Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum does. It moisturizes the skin without clogging my pores, but the hydration lasts much longer. Along with awesome moisture, I have seen other noticeable results!

Organic jojoba oil doesn’t just leave my skin looking and feeling moisturized. It has changed the condition of my skin for the better after adding it into my skin care routine (after using the serum). My skin appears softer and smoother with consistent use. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. My eyelashes are thicker and longer. I’m very happy with the results!! Lucky enough, organic jojoba oil is less expensive for the amount of product compared to the Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Boost Serum. The serum lasted 1 month for me when used twice a day. The first jojoba oil (from Trader Joe’s) I used lasted about 2 months. I didn’t use it only for my facial skin though. I also used it as a body oil and hair treatment too. Without using it as a body oil or hair treatment, it could easily last over 2+ months! I love organic jojoba oil and would highly recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a natural moisturizer for the skin! 😊
