Weekend Rituals with Clarisonic





Clarisonic PLUS for Face & Body; Face Cleanser: Bliss; Body Cleanser: Bliss; Body Lotion: Bliss; Robe: Josie; Watch: Michele; Earrings: Gorjana (or shop Nordstrom’s Gorjana selection HERE); Nails: Orly Kiss the Bride; Toes: OPI Cajun Shrimp; Lips: MAC Creme Cup; Coffee Mug: Nordstrom

Weekends are full of rituals: Brunch with the boyfriend, play date with the puppy, dry cleaners, mani/pedi with a girlfriend, Whole Foods, etc….y’all know the drill because you probably have a ritual or 2 of your own.

But one of my favorite times of the weekend is a time I like to refer to as PIT: Personal Improvement Time.  I have talked about my love of PIT before, but for those of you that don’t remember, it is my time to do all of that weird/strange/private/beauty maintenance related stuff that WE ALL DO but don’t really talk about. My PIT is full of things like teeth bleaching, at home waxing kits (not recommended for obvious reasons!), face masks, closet cleaning, and of course, long, hot showers!

Recently, I spilled my makeup bag and shared some of my favorite cosmetic products….and in that post, I also mentioned my love for the Clarisonic Mia.  It’s a tool that my face has grown accustom to and depends on in order to stay smooth clear. But come summertime, when the spray tans get more frequent and the skin all over your body gets more a little more oily, it’s nice to have a something other than a washcloth or loofah in the shower: Enter the CLARISONIC PLUS….my new favorite beauty item for the shower.

I know what you’re thinking, “Courtney, why on Earth do you need 2 Clarisonics?” Well, here’s my justification:

  1. I can keep my Clarisonic Mia at the sink and my Clarisonic PLUS in the shower.
  2. The Clarisonic PLUS has the ability to hold 2 different brush heads: one for the face and a much larger one for the body….so not only can I make sure that my face gets the extra exfoliating it needs, but I can brighten up the skin on my body as well (and considering its bikini season, anything we can do to help the body is good!)
  3. Because, in true Courtney fashion, if you think something is nice, just buy it twice :)

Have you invested in a Clarisonic product yet? Has it totally changed your life?! And, what are some of your weekend rituals that you do during PIT?!

    Courtney, you are the absolute cutest– don’t EVER change!! PIT…cracking me up, girl but it’s SO true!!

  5. I got the Mia for my birthday and it was absolutely the best investment (well…gift) I could have made in my skin! I adore it. 😀 Especially in this Texas weather, being able to really deep-clean is awesome.

    I love my Clarisonic Mia 2!! It is the first product, tool, etc. that finally makes my skin feel 100% clean!!

  7. Cheryl Castrogiovanni says:

    My Clarisonic Mia 2 is THE best thing that has ever happened to my face! I’ve had it for 1 1/2 years and I’ve only had 1 pimple pop up and I’m pretty sure Mother Nature had more to do with that one than anything else. If you don’t have one, go get it right now!

    Courtney, you are fab! I just know we’d be besties 😉

  8. Arrie says:

    I’m always a sucker for a purple couch! Wonder if I can talk Jordan into that. Cute post, Court!

  9. Julie Phung says:

    Love my MIA 2 … Sounds like the plus is a good investment!

  10. Mari Villa says:

    I’ve used “Olay” brand & it works wonders! I can only imagine what difference the Clarisonic
    would make. BTW ladies if you are on a budget like me then you
    might want to consider purchasing Clarisonic on QVC! They sometimes have sales, easy-pay monthly
    payments & bundles. Love your STYLE Courtney !! & thanks to you I’m addicted to Sole Society.

  11. Madeleine says:

    Random question…but what at home waxing kits do you use/ suggest? I usually get waxing done professionally, but it’s not to have a good at-home kit for emergencies! :) Haven’t found a good one!

  12. Would LOVE you to do a nightly ritual beauty routine…favorite makeup removers, toners, scrubs, etc. as you have beautiful skin! Love this post, as always. :)

  13. Erica says:

    I LIVE for my Clarisonics! I got the Mia 2 on kinda of sale since it’s a dicontinued pattern. I love it so much I want the Plus to leave in the shower and leave the Mia 2 at the skin. The Clarisonic has improved my skin but I also look forward to washing my face! Absolutely a must have!!!!

  14. I swear by the Clarisonic and I’ve used it for years! It’s worth every penny – I promise :)

  15. Holly Ware says:

    I have a Mia I’m ashamed to say I’ve never used!
    But after reading all these comments I’ll be whipping
    it out today ti start using immediately!

    Hmm…beauty rituals. Well, mani-pedi every 3 weeks
    no matter what! Hair & facial waxing every 4 weeks –
    like clockwork!

  16. Courtney says:

    I have a Clarisonic Mia I use on my face every night and it has made such a difference in the overall quality of my skin. Btw I love your robe!


  17. Gina says:

    Can’t wait to try it.

  18. Mary Orton says:

    Whew, you have me convinced! I need to try one of these babies!

    P.S. Your robe is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…

  19. Lauren B says:

    I’m obsessed with my Clarisonic! And I am also an advocate of PIT! My PIT totally depends on my husbands work schedule (you can’t have proper PIT if you’re trying to keep your man fed, happy, and entertained) so, sometimes it’s a Thursday evening, sometimes it’s a Sunday afternoon. But it always consists of cleaning my bedroom and master suite, bleaching the sheets, and then a long hot soak in detox whirlpool bath. Exfoliating from my head (with my Mia) to my toes, slathering on coconut oil or Honest Company healing balm. teeth bleaching, random plucking, and a hair mask. Drinking lots of tea, and snuggling into bed early or lounging in my robe refusing to do house work for the rest of the day.

  20. Love your robe! It’s adorable!
    I have never used the Clarisonic, but I will say that I LOVE my Rodan + Fields products…skin care products designed by two of the top leading dermatologists! I use their Macro Exfoliator once a week and their AmpMD Roller every night for the reduction of fine line and wrinkles and removal of dead skin cells.
    If you are ever interested in trying their products, I would be honored to have you order some through me.
    Have a great day!
