Skin as an Accessory at Fashion Week.

You cannot begin to model without beautiful skin, right? This season at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, skin was in (isn't it always?), and designers who wanted the ultimate in beautiful looking skin turned to Clarisonic.

Both the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System and the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System were used on the models by celebrity aesthetician Eileen Harcourt to prep their skin for the VPL showing on September 12th  and at Chris Benz on September 13th.


A thorough cleansing is the first step in any skincare routine, and Eileen says she wouldn’t even recommend applying moisturizer to the face unless it had a sonic cleansing first. Models that were “in the know” came early to both the VPL and Chris Benz shows to experience a rare chance to relax.

Eileen used the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System to remove any makeup the models had on prior to the show (it cleans makeup 6x better than manual cleansing) as well as to fully cleanse the facial palette. Applying makeup is easier and looks better after using the Clarisonic Mia because the foundation is much cleaner than normal.  Models were able to achieve each show’s signature look with fresh skin before makeup application.

She then used the Opal around the eyes to provide a quick “wake up call,” since it tightens the skin with the same sonic technology as in the Mia. It was also used around the lips to tighten and brighten as well.   The Opal Sonic Infusion System is ideal because it’s compact and offers a “clean application” of serum.

You know I am a believer in the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System, which sells for $149, and I highly recommend it to everyone. It will make such a difference (for the better) in your skin and will last for years. I have not had the chance to try the Opal Sonic Infusion System yet, but just knowing that it comes from Clarisonic makes me not think too hard about dropping that much money (it sells for $245) on another "beauty tool". 

Both of these Clarisonic beauties are available at Sephora and or at
