Fitness Humor – I Can Do It

Sometimes the muscles are a little over-ambitious.  They drag your ass to the gym early and push harder than *maybe* the rest of you is comfortable with.  

Enter the massage therapist, orthopedic doctors, infrared light, heat patches. . .

Gee! Thanks, Overtraining!

Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift

So I’m sure there are a plethora of skeptics out there.  I was one myself. . .before my Clarisonic cleansing brush.  I still just use my hands to wash my face sometimes but I ALWAYS see a difference when I use my – rather expensive – brush device.  So yes…it’s worth it. 

A new advancement has come to light, however, in the Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift ($349). The 2-in-1 cleansing and micro-firming device not only cleanses the skin, but purportedly targets 15 signs of aging (per Clarisonic.com):

Smart Profile Uplift targets 15 signs of aging on face, neck, and décolleté.

  • Provides next-level micro-firming massage.
  • Delivers skin-changing sonic cleansing.
  • Minimizes the look of pores.
  • Boosts the absorption of your daily skincare products.
  • See visible, cumulative results.

I know sounds too good to be true, but home devices (the right ones) are an amazing way to keep up with results from dermatologic procedures, and to make the products you have at home work their best. Think of it as an investment.

It’s a new product so there aren’t many reviews (which I always invest in reading for pricier items), but I’d keep your eyes open because as with anything that promises these kinds of results…it’s SURE to catch on.  Especially from this brand, with known “cult” brushes (and cult for great reason – they WORK!)

Fitness Humor – Voodoo

Brilliant idea!

Technically this can go for anyone who’s stressed.  But definitely if you’re active, you can appreciate the humor…

Simultaneous massage and acupuncture? Doubly brilliant.  I may have to give it a go…!

Clinique Take The Day Off

This would have been INCREDIBLY useful during my ballroom days!  

While I can’t say I have a particular use for this now, since I’m not wearing anything on my eyes – really, like, ever – I think it’s a wonderful and ingenious idea.  In fact, I’m kind of aghast that it hasn’t been done before!

Super easy to use and totally practical, the Clinique Take the Day Off Eye Makeup Remover Stick makes the end of the day (or look change) a piece of cake.  It’s akin to a cleansing balm, a bit more solidified, and in a much easier format – a quick twist of the stick, a nice little massage, and voila!  Well done, Clinique.
