SpaceNK Haul!

Well, it's not really a haul - I got 2 items - but it consists of 2 things, one of which I have wanted for a very long time. My first item is the best...

A Clarisonic Classic!

Every time I went into a SpaceNK, I would gaze lovingly at the Clarisonic on display. I would try and justify the price tag, but there always seemed to be other things to buy.

I decided to get the Classic rather than the Mia, because I knew I would regret buying one that only had one speed. Plus, I prefer the look of the Classic ; ) I did look at the Plus (face & body) version, but I'm only planning on using it on my face, so it would have been a waste.

Inside the box, you get (as shown above) Clarisonic with two speeds, Universal Charging Cradle for international use, Sensitive Brush Head, 3 trial-size facial cleansers (30ml each) & a plastic cover for the brush head.

The Clarisonic feels nice to hold and has a good weight to it - it certainly doesn't feel cheap/flimsy!

As it needs a full 24-hour charge before its first use, I shall be charging it up tonight so that I can use it for the first time tomorrow night - I can't wait! The charging dock has a weighted base, which will stop it falling over and I might keep it in that when it's not in use.

I'm planning on trying it with my beloved Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (the Clarisonic can be used with any non-abrasive cleanser) but it did come with 3x 30ml tubes of Clarisonic-branded cleansers...

Left-Right: Nourishing Care (normal/dry skin), Gentle Hydro (all/sensitive skin) & Refreshing Gel (normal/oily skin)

As it comes with the Sensitive brush head as standard, I will try it and then have a look at other brush heads if it feels too soft.

As much as I love talking about my new Clarisonic, here is what else I bought...

NARS Sheer Glow

I bought it in "Light 4 ~ Deauville" and as I'm NW20 in MAC, this shade is perfect for me. This is my second bottle of this foundation and I love it. My only criticism is that it doesn't come with a pump. Therefore, you have to be careful when you take the lid off. Other than that, I love the glass bottle and how NARS is printed on the glass.

My order came with some free samples - Caudalie Radiance Serum (2ml), a huge WEI Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pad and a mini vial of  perfume: Privet Bloom by Hampton Sun. I'm not too keen on the smell of the perfume, but I can't wait to try the other 2!

I got my Clarisonic & NARS Sheer Glow online at SpaceNK.

Do you use a Clarisonic or NARS Sheer Glow?

I will be posting my long-overdue giveaway here tomorrow night and it will include a 30ml Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish + Muslin Cloth so keep your eyes peeled! x
