The Clarisonic Mia cleansing system ($175) boasts serious backing from a celeb crowd who has every skin care regimen at their disposal (Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Cox & Liv Tyler are reported fans) – and was, not least of all, named among Oprah's Favorite Things. What makes it so special? Sonic frequency of 300 movements per second that offers back and forth oscillation that gently massages away dirt, oil and other yucky stuff trapped within pores. The promise: reduced appearance of pores, better absorption of skincare products for plump, radiant looking skin. I was fortunate to be given my own Clarisonic to try and I can attest to the game changing nature of this handheld wonder. Even better? I got an additional one to share with a reader of The Style House. Stay tuned for contest details coming up tomorrow.
