Why You're Probably Not Getting Your Face Really Clean

I had some friends over the weekend of the 4th of July and one commented on, “that harsh brush thing for cleaning the face,” that was in my bathroom. And a few of the others in the room chimed in with agreement that they just looked like they would hurt. Unless you’ve tried one of these like the Clarisonic, then you too probably think that, but it’s so not true!

Take this PHILIPS PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System ($99 @ Like the aforementioned, it’s made to use on the face so it’s not going to be harsh and I think most of think our skin is more delicate than it is. This mechanism uses Sonic technology plus Advanced Dual Motion, which are rotations of the brush head, to clean the skin from makeup and dirt, much more effectively than from just manually cleaning your face and all it takes is 60 seconds. I mean, I have no way to tell if I've removed all the day's dirt and makeup when I use my trusty washcloth but with this one, I know I pretty much have.

Do You Hate Flossing? This One Is for You!

Philips-Soniccare-AirFlossLet’s get real. Do you floss every day? I mean every day? I keep those floss sticks next to my computer so I can try and remember to do it but overall, I don’t, so I too hear the groans from my dentist twice a year about my lack of. Thankfully someone has come along to try and help us get more consistent with it. PHILIPS Sonicare AirFloss ($89.99 @ is sort of like a Waterpik that I used to use when I had braces as a teen but not as messy with the water squirting everywhere.

How this works is that it when the tip is inserted between two teeth, you press a button and it jets a quick burst of water and pressurized air (45 mph, they claim, wha???) to dislodge any food and also existing plaque.

I was first curious as to what I own dentist would think of this but in reading the fine print on their website, they worked with dental professionals in creating this product. Phew!

So no more sore tips of fingers from floss being wound too tight around fingers or making sure you make a perfect letter C with the floss around each tooth as I now have the AirFloss. And I love that it takes about 1 ½ minutes to complete both the top and bottom teeth after brushing!

Will you be trying this one out?
