This is my absolute favorite product from Clarisonic! I've had every single face brush since they first came out and this one is my favorite because of its small size and convenience. While smaller than the other ones, it's just as powerful and cute! I also love the face wash that came with it. It comes with a "radiance" brush head (pink) which is a little too soft for my likings so I purchased the one with the black ring around it which I believe is the one for sensitive to normal skin. Charges standing up on a circular dock & has 2 settings.

I absolutely love this thing! I was debating if I should get this or a Clarisonic, and after a lot of reviews, I made the right decision for me. I bought it last year (August 2014) and used it 'right out of the box' as they say and ended up having to charge it just last month (April 2015). 8 months, people. This little thing seriously has a powerful kick. It's gentle yet effective on my dry, sensitive skin. It's not abrasive at all. Best part, I can just rinse it when I'm done using it. There's no brush heads that needs to be replaced every 3 months or anything which saves me so much money. Not knocking the Clarisonic, but if you have sensitive skin, this is an excellent product. I have a neice who has the same skin type as me who bought a Clarisonic, and she had to deal with charging it overnight then the whole purging phase and after all that, forgot to change the brush heads. Ain't nobody got time for that lol.

I was amazed to discover that this product works well. You must have dark hair and lighter skin for the technology to be effective. I wish it was easier to do larger areas of the body at a time, but ultimately it takes me about 7 minutes to do one of my legs. It took about 4 weeks of weekly usage to see a difference. I do still need to shave, but the hairs grow incredibly slowly, and most of it does not grow back at all. I have been using it long enough where I only need to target certain areas about every two weeks. My legs are smooth and no longer have those unsightly little black dots (I call it strawberry legs) where the hairs were. I recommend this strongly.

This product definitely stands out among other acne treatments out there on the market. This is easily to use, mess free, and it allows you to sit back and taking a relaxing 10 minute break from a crazy schedule, on top of working towards clearing away those pesky breakouts! The lights on the inside took a little bit to get used to, but you eventually get used to it. My face never feels too hot at all from the light, which was something that I worried about, and I do not have to squint from the light either, since the sunglasses built into the product work great!

I've have been using my NuFace Mini for a little over two weeks now. I immediately noticed a reduction in the size of my pores, increased firmness and softer skin texture. I have found that I look more rested and am overall extremely happy with my purchase.

I received this as a sample, and couldn't wait to test it out! I watched several videos on YouTube both from the brand itself and Sephora, but with the instruction I found it relatively easy to use. The more angled areas of the face are a little difficult to navigate; if the blade was slightly smaller it would be easier. After a few weeks of using I am still afraid I am going to accidentally shave off an eyebrow! But, the results are incredible - it makes your skin so smooth and noticeably tighter immediately after use. I did not break out from the cleanser or moisturizer as I've read on some other reviews, I actually found both to be mild and soothing. I have not used other exfoliators since starting this product because I'm afraid to irritate my skin, especially with dry winter weather, but I've maintained my normal skincare routine with masks, antioxidant serums, and antiaging products.

When I first saw the Beachwaver I was thrilled. Not only was this a way to save time and curling arm fatigue (see ya upper body workout) it seemed like a fool-proof way to get perfectly wavy hair. I had a little trouble with the first few curls—setting the direction was not as intuitive as I thought. That said, it really does produce gorgeous curls. They're a little tight at first so shaking them out was a must but overall I loved the look it produced. My main issue was that the Beachwaver didn't heat up as fast as I'd like. I'd definitely recommend it though.

This is a product I hadn't heard anything about. As someone who has struggled with acne for years, I was excited to try it out. I didn't notice any visible differences after one usage, but I have over a period of time. It's helped to tame breakouts and bring down painful swelling much faster than other products I've tried. I like the packaging, and the size of the actual product is really convenient. I can take it to school with me or anywhere really. I have the black one, and I really like it. It looks chic and honestly you probably wouldn't know what it was without asking. I appreciate that it comes with batteries as well!
