Getting the most out of your IT Cosmetics CC Cream

One of my most favorite products ever is the Your Skin But Better CC Cream by IT Cosmetics. It acts as a sunscreen, foundation and an anti-aging serum. But it does leave one thing to be desired..and that is the leftover product stuck in the container! It comes in a tube with a pump to make application easier, but when the pump “dries up” there is still a bunch of CC Cream left in there. That is when I got wise and decided to clip off the top of the tube.


I cut it pretty close to the bottom and then used a concealer brush to get it out and apply it to my face.  I got probably a week or so more use out of it this way and I just stored it in a sealed plastic bag.


Clarisonic is turning 10, do you have one?


Clarisonic Mia 3

Clarisonic, the facial cleansing device, is turning 10 this holiday season. I was lucky enough to get a Mia 3 to review. As an owner of Mia for years, Ic an safely say I con’t live without one.  It has done great things for my skin. If I go a few days without using it, I can tell a difference. It removes makeup, dead skin and helps keep my rosacea symptoms in check.

The Mia 3 has a lot of extra features compared to my old single speed Mia. The Mia 3 came with a stand, a USB enabled universal voltage pack plus a bonus luxe brush head and a full size Gentle Hydro Cleanser. The actual device has three speeds; a gentle speed for sensitive skin, medium speed for daily cleansing and a higher speed to take on long-wearing makeup. It also has a timer to tell you when to switch to the next facial area.  This kit retails for $199 (mine was a press sample) with a $254 value.

My Mia has been going strong for four years. If you don’t have a Clarisonic, it’s time to get one! So where can you get a deal? – now through 11/30 get 20% off all devices with code CYBERWKND. Ex: Mia is $99 x 20% off = $79.20 plus free shipping and free returns. I think they may continue this through Cyber Monday.

ULTA – They have 20% off selected devices.

QVC – They have devices starting at $99. QVC also has exclusive designs/colors including a Kate Somerville kit for $149.

Dermstore – 20% off at checkout on all devices.

Sephora and Nordstrom also carry Clarisonic and have exclusive sets. It is also a good idea to troll social media hashtags to find other deals.  *Avoid buying from unauthorized Clarisonic retailers – you can’t be sure you’re getting the real thing!
