*Giveaway* Getting Deep (Pore) with Clarisonic

Do you guys remember when I was in NYC and was tweeting up a storm about the “Evolution of Skin Care” event, hosted by Clarisonic that I was lucky enough to attend? It was there I heard about a a new brush head they were introducing – the Deep Pore Cleansing brush head.

Now, I have had blackheads across my nose since I can remember. And since I don’t get facials on the regular, ie., hardly ever, I take care of things at home – sometimes good things like good scrubs and peels; and sometimes really bad things like manual self-extractions. (*Those always go well. Uh huh.). But the one thing that I use that gives me the best clean is when I use my Clarisonic brush, that I got on QVC a couple of years ago (*5 easy-pays – Heeeey!). In my case I can’t use it that often, but when I do, it makes my skin feels really clean, but it never does that deep down scrubbing clean. Or at least it *didn’t*. That has changed with this new Deep Pore brush head.

So, when I was in NYC, I had a chance to try a true “Triple Oxygen Treatment” facial at bliss spa, to compare with my at home version that I had done. I had a hard time writing about it, because, well, it was so relaxing I slept thru most of it and woke up with amazing glowing skin (*and no post-facial breakouts! Score!), and I didn’t really know how to explain it properly. Anyway, I point this out to show that I had a great “baseline” fresh face – deep blackheads still there, but really smooth skin. Usually, not too long after a facial your skin kind of goes back to how it was before, well, in this case, I have been able to maintain a lot of the smoothness, but also have been able to get down into some of the deeper blackheads using this brush head, reducing the appearance on the bridge of my nose and down the sides. This makes for a very happy girl.

All of you QVC junkies, be jealous! Look who I got to hang out with that day: Dr. Robb!! 🙂

And, I want you to see the deep pore cleansing difference yourself by giving away a Deep Pore Cleansing brush head to you. Oh. You’ll probably need something to be able to use the brush head on, so, why don’t I throw in a Clarisonic Mia Sonic Cleansing System, too? You know what? I was talking to my best friend today, who is traveling overseas, and I bet she wishes she had a Mia to travel with right now. Let’s make sure your BFF doesn’t suffer the same way – let’s give them one, too!

That’s right – I’m giving away a Sonic Mia, with a Deep Pore Cleansing brush head to one lucky reader AND their BFF. All I need you to do is tell me why your BFF deserves one, and I’ll choose the winner. Yes, it’s entirely at my whim. 😉 And I already know why *you* deserve one, you beauty fiend you. I’ll take submissions until Midnight Friday night, July 29th. (*Sorry, this is for US residents, only!)

Are any of you already Clarisonic fans? Have you had a chance to try this new brush head out for yourself? Lemme know what you think if you have, or if you are thinking about picking one up!

*Disclaimer: I received a Mia and the brush head from PR for consideration. I also received the facial courtesy of PR, too.

    My BFF deserves a Mia because she is the most fabulous woman on the planet. Here is why: She is a mother of 4. Oldest being a 16 year old teenage boy. If that isn’t enough, she has a 13, and 7 year old boy as well. Now, throw in a 2 year old Diva girl and the fact that she is in her 2nd year of law school and works full time to be able to pay for it. It amazes me how she handles all of this and still manages to look incredibly fabulous. She gives everything to others and never asks for anything in return. She is superwoman with a smoky eye. Unfortunately, school and children take up all of her funds and she could not purchase one for herself. Her skin has been suffering a bit from the stress and eating on the go. Please give my friend a deep clean!

  2. Karen Speicher says:

    My BFF is my daughter, who is a college student, medic and volunteer for our community rescue station. She needs Clarisonic so that with her extremely busy schedule she can pamper herself and maintain the healthy beautiful glow that she has. As her mom and best friend I want her to have the best and reading your blog I feel that this is a must have for everyones beauty regiment.

  3. Jackie says:

    One of my BFFs is one that I met just a year ago her name is Jess! I was worried when I moved across the country, I would not have anymore close girlfriends. We are both (hoping) to get married next year and could use this wonderful product to help us look our wedding day best.

  4. Karla says:

    I’d love to have one for my 16 year old daughter. She takes great care of her skin but despite all her efforts has lots of acne trouble. She doesn’t let it put a damper on her personality but I know she would be even more confident with clearer skin. All of the times she helps at home w/o being asked when I work – I’d love to win to give this treat to her as a reward.

  5. Valerie says:

    My BFF is my daughter who has graduated from college and working in Boston. Boy, do I ever MISS her! Well, she had very few breakouts during her school years…thank God she didn’t get my oily skin. But, now, she’s breaking out….and freaking out over it. I think this would help her cleanse much better so any skin care can work better. I also love that the Mia is smaller, probably easier to handle. Thanks!

  6. Mamavalveeta03 says:

    My daughter is a Senior in college in Washington D.C. at American University. She works full-time to pay her tuition and living expenses because her dad and I are not able to help out financially. With all of the late nights studying and working, she has still been able to maintain a 3.85 average and has been on the Dean’s list every semester. She also volunteers for political and social events and took 2 months this summer to do a service mission to Mexico taking care of orphans. (I know!! She sounds like a made-up kid. Trust me, she’s ALL real!). I would love to treat her with a Clarisonic brush–she deserves much more than that. But this would be a special surprise!

  7. AsiaJohns says:

    My bff deserves to win the Clarsonic because she is finally(for real this time) establishing a beauty routine that she is sticking to . She is currently in an advanced degree program and has 4 kids.

  8. Jane Clarke says:

    My BFF’s are my kids. All grown up now and have families of their own. They are close to each other and mee, too. What a great way to live.

  9. Kimberly says:

    My BF is one that I have never met physically. We have been friends for over 8 years and met on a fitness group we both belong to. Over those years, we have become so close. It doesn’t seem like we haven’t physically met at all. We talk several times, daily, by email. And, we have just started sending each other videos. Hopefully, we’ll work out a Skype call.

    My BF has gone through some very hard, personal issues from losing her sister to adopting her niece who has autism. Now she has found out she needs dentures. Not a big deal, unless you are only 41 years old. She feels old and has worried herself so much over this. She works out 6 days a week, does yoga 4 -5 times a week, in the evenings. And she watches her grandson 3 – 4 times a week. Eating healthy has been a priority to her and her family.

    I would love to treat my BF to a Mia because I know she would never treat herself so something so nice. And I know it would help give her more confidence in her appearance. She’s not only strong, she’s beautiful too. 🙂

    I don’t own a Clarisonic yet. I just know it would make my face feel clean and look healthy too.

  10. Cindy Wilson says:

    My BFF has two beautiful kids under five and is a stay at home Mom who would never spend money for a Clarisonic even if she had it because as you know kids always need something and they come first. She deserves to be pampered and would love for her to have a Clarisonic she deserves a little personal spa time.

  11. DRTVrMoi says:

    I am blessed to have a BFF that has lasted from ninth grade and going strong. We’ve since gone to separate colleges, moved far apart, and aged little mentally. We remain those highschool girls, chatting about everything and anything. Sometimes we speak weekly, sometimes there will be gaps of months but friendship is not measured in days. It’s measured in that warm feeling you get when you hear her voice and know that it will end with a smile on your face and a warm heart.

  12. Lisamarie says:

    I’m in Canada so I’m not eligible, but my BFF is in the States and is so obsessed with her pores it’s stupid! I would love her to win this because then maybe she would stop whining about them all the time and everyone around her could get some peace – her winning would be a public service really – like charity and I know you want to be a charitable person so pick me! 😉

    Best, Lisamarie

  13. Jazz says:

    My bff is my mom. She deserves one because she raised me virtually by herself- and she stands by me in all of my decisions and emotions. She is so giving. She helps support her niece by buying her groceries. If there is something a child needs , she doesn’t hesitate to buy it. My cousin wanted a bike-hers was stolen- so my mom went to the store and got a new one. She gives so much to others, but it is rarely returned to her

  14. Vickie Riddle says:

    I would love for my son to benefit from using the clarisonic, he’s 17, a great, thoughtful and caring teenager! I am so blessed.

  15. Ali says:

    Firstly, I want to say how generous this giveaway is! 🙂 My BFF deserves this because she has never even had a facial. She is frugal to the point that it drives me mad. I think she would love this because she is already so beautiful but if it were a gift and I had one too, she would use it. 🙂 She’s been a SAHM who has sacrificed all her wants for her family. She spends hours each week cutting out coupons to save a bit here and there. I would love for her to win this. Thanks!

  16. Jen Merrick says:

    My Bff could really use this because she just got out of the Air Force a week ago and is desperately looking for a job in this economy and it would really help her self esteem for interviews! I would love to help her in any way in her job search and know an extra boost of confidence could just do the trick.

  17. Liz says:

    My BFF deserves to win because she works so hard to support her family. Her husband hasn’t worked in a few years, so she has been working two jobs to keep them afloat. Poor thing is TIRED, and she never has any cash left after the bills are paid to take care of herself. The Clarisonic is a little luxury that she could use every day to feel like she has gotten a fancy facial.

  18. Veuve says:

    My bff is a gorgeous, smart, generous, funny artist. She also teaches art (when schools have the money) to the most difficult populations– homeless teens, teens in detention, autistic kids. She loves (as she calls it) HABA– Health and Beauty Aids, but like most artists, lives on the financial edge. I would love to get this for her.

  19. aubreylaine says:

    I would love to buy one for my mom. She does so much for us kids and has always wanted a Clarisonic. I would love to treat her 🙂

  20. Nancy says:

    My BFF is my darling daughter who is living a frugal life in VT with her husband and 4 month old baby boy.
    She is awesome~ always has been and I know I’m blessed.
    She really deserves to have a Clarsonic to treat herself and pamper her beautiful face. She has inherited my oily skin and we both have blackhead-on-the-nose area problems!
    You are so very generous.

  21. Jessie says:

    My BFF, my mother, deserves this because she is the best, hardest working person I know. She has always been there for me in every way. She sacrificed so much when my father kicked us both out around the time I was turning 12-years-old (2001). I still remember how when we moved into our apartment, there was no running water, and we had no bed, no couch… She worked long hours to keep us there. I never wanted for anything. She did what she had to do to keep us together.

    Fast-forward to late 2010. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, working to put myself through university. We get the worst news a 22 and 23-year-old could imagine: Chris, my husband, has cancer. The following year was by far one of the worst of my life. She stuck by us, though. Never once did she let us give up hope. Even on the days when I could barely muster a smile, she would encourage us and promise us that we would make it. Now here we are.

    She’s been an anchor for me my entire life. God, I’m in tears just writing this! She means so much to me. I’d love to be able to give her something special to treat herself after all the support she’s given me.


    Today, my husband is now in remission with no sign of the cancer in sight. I

  22. Pammy says:

    What a great idea for a contest!!! My BFF totally deserves to win this!!! Let me tell you a little bit about Jamie…She is hands-down the kindest person I have ever met with the most generous heart. I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. Her presence and encouragement has been such a constant in my life. She lifts me up when I am feeling down and celebrates all of life’s triumphs with me. Her strength amazes me. She lost both of her parents in her early 20’s and has developed a strength and resilience that is just amazing. She is going through quite a struggle with infertility right now, but still remains positive and optimistic. Besides being a major source of strength in my life, she is also so much FUN! We laugh like crazy when we are together and can have a good time doing just about anything! Besides all of this, she is a fellow beauty/makeup/skincare fanatic. So, she would be the ideal person to win the Clarisionic!!! Please pick her!!!

  23. Milaxx says:

    MY BFF deserves this because she just went through a second bought with breast cancer. This required the removal of both breast and reconstructive surgery. Yet she never lost her positive attitude or smile. She has always been there for me when I’ve been down and I would love to gift her with this.

  24. Kim D. says:

    I would really like to win this for my best friend because her Birthday is coming up and this would be the perfect gift to give her. She’s always thinking about others, so she really deserve something special for herself.

  25. My BFF deserves to win this awesome giveaway because she’s always putting off that pampering time. She is forever taking care of others, would give the shirt off her back to a friend in need, and has a heart of gold. She is always so busy taking care of someone else that the most important person, herself, is most always forgotten. This Clarisonic would be a great start for her to get on track to taking care of Number One!

  26. 1955nurse says:

    I think my Daughter is sooo deserving of this wonderful Clairsonic…. since she has become an Adult we have grown from the “Mother-Daughter” relationship to one of mutual respect & admiration! She has a B-day coming up in August & has ALWAYS wanted one of these, ever since they 1st came on the market. She is an Event-planner & works 6 days a week, plus finds time to organize fund-raisers for Arkansas Children’s Hospital & Cystic Fibrosis. Absolutely a wonderful Daughter, a FABulous event planner & all-around great person! As busy as she is, this would help her take care of HERSELF, too!!!

  27. Hofken says:

    My BFF deserves a Mia because she has been running our law office as the “interim” director for a year now. She came in one morning and learned that her successor had just quit and she was in charge. She has been an amazing boss, especially in the face of huge budget cuts. The previous directors didn’t work half as hard as she does and never cared about our indigent clients like she does. Her ethics set an example for the rest of us. She is totally unselfish and never complains about what she was “asked” to do. She deserves a pampering.

  28. Amy says:

    My BFF is my sister who is pregnant with her second child. Not only is she a wonderful friend to me, but she is a fantastic mother who never takes the time to pamper herself. She works full time, takes care of her child and husband, etc. She deserves to do something wonderful for herself, so she deserves a clarisonic!

  29. Bonnie C. says:

    My mother is my BFF, and she really deserves something nice like this because she is very selfless and always serving others. I have a chronic, severe illness and my mother does every aspect of my care, and that’s on top of being a music teacher. She is such an incredible woman, and I aspire to be like her in every way! 🙂

    Thank you so much for having this giveaway, and I hope you and your readers have a wonderful day! 🙂

  30. Scarlett says:

    I know it sounds super corny, but my BFF is my older sister. I’ve always looked up to her and held her as my role model my entire life. Well, 2 years ago she went through a messy divorce and was as sad as sad could be. Fortunately, she has since then found the love of her life, a wonderful man who put a smile back on her face, and is getting married in December. This gift would make sure she looks radiant and fabulous on her wedding day (and me, too, since I’m her maid of honor!).

  31. Eileen says:

    My BFF has been my friend since before BFF was a “word”. She’s been with me through thick and thin (more thick than thin though). She’s the friendliest person you could ever meet, highly intelligent and pretty much always happy – even though she has had some very unhappy events in her life. She’s an extra aunt to my kids and always seems to be around to help me move. Right now she’s in a job that has put her in the middle of nowhere – no spas or fancy cosmetic counters any where nearby – I’d venture to say it’s a spot even the national drugstore chains haven’t found. She deserves a little pampering!!!

  32. Danielle says:

    my BFF is my mom. she works two jobs to support our family and always puts others needs before her own. she never complains about it because she knows she’s helping her family. she’s totally amazing and doesn’t do anything for herself. she aso has some adult acne and rosacea that she detests and struggles with, but she doesn’t let it bring her down. she would absolutely love this as a gift and i know it would help her! she never indulges in anything for herselfand this would be an amazing thing for her. she’s never had a facial and if she got the clarisonic, which is like a facial everyday, she’d go nuts! thanks for doing the giveaway!

  33. Samantha Meraz says:

    My BFF is mt niece Megan and she deserves a Clarisonic Mia because she is an amazing girl. She witnessed the murder of her mother at the age of 18 and became a champion of victims rights, she’s a nanny, loves children and at the end of the murder trial even comforted the father of her mothers murderer. She nannies because she loves it but doesn’t earn much so she’s not able to splurge on things like she used to when her mom was alive. That’s why I think she deserves to win. Thanks for reading.

  34. dan says:

    A guy friend of mine has the worst skin. Sometimes I want to jump across the table and scrub his face down. Having the MIA would be helpful in the process of getting him cleaned up for all the ladies to see what’s underneath. And while we re at it, I’d love to shine too!

  35. Nadia says:

    my BFF deserves a Clarisonic because she is a gorgeous amazing woman. She not only put herself through school AND through law school, working SEVERAL jobs, she is now fllying halfway around the world, putting aside a great career, to go take care of her mother. Not only is she amazing, but she’ll be living in a third world nation and I’m sure the Clarisonic will come in VERY handy when trying to maintain her amazing skin in subpar conditions.

  36. amy says:

    my mom could use this. she is 68 and has very sensitive skin. would be great to gently clean without damaging her skin

  37. Stephanie B. says:

    My bff who is also my sister Hope totally deserves a Clarisonic Mia because she just had her second baby and she deserves a treat. I asked her the other day how everything was going and she explained it to me like this. Some days are hard some are better and some days she said she would just like to go in a room and cry.lol. She never does anything for herself and we used to be the beauty queens of the block. I know even with a small cleanser that it would make her day, week, month hell year to get something as special as this. Thank you for the opportunity to even have a chance to win one!
