Our Traveling Skincare Essential

    We have been traveling for quite a fair bit in the past few months. We went to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Nagoya, Krabi, Macau, Pangkor Laut and Bangkok. *gasped* Time flies when you are having fun!

    Traveling to new and different places opens our eyes and our minds. Although traveling is fun but it often comes together with a price. Our skin condition often deteriorates after we come home. Cold air, harsh wind, strong UV rays, not having enough sleep, no time to exfoliate and not enough moisture…These are just some of the factors that worsen our skin condition.
    Nice view…but we reached here after being on the road for 6 hours.
    Looks relaxing…but the cold air is drying up my skin.
    Not having enough sleep because we woke up early to experience “farm life”.

    I’ve done enough ranting here. I guess we just have to put in real effort to make our skin look good. Here is a tip, great skin start with great cleansing. I’ve been wanting to try out the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush as I’ve heard many beauty bloggers raving about it. I am so happy that Clinique has invited me to try the Sonic Cleansing Brush! This could be my solution to maintaining good clean skin during my travels.
    Professional dermatologists developed the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush; therefore it is made with our facial skin in mind and it is Swiss-engineered. So it is gentle and effective, the best of both worlds!
    I like how the cleansing brush is so light weight, sleek and slim. It fits perfectly into my little pouch without taking up much space in my carry on.
    Just click on the grey button to start the cleansing brush. It will move in a sonic motion for 30 seconds before it automatically shuts off. This will ensure that we do not over cleanse our face, which will strip off our skin’s moisture level.

    It comes in a sleek white finish, packed with simple features anyone needs for a great wash. The brush head is really easy to put on and remove.
    The whole cleansing brush is water-proof. So it is ideal for me, as I love to clean my face in the shower. (save time ma!).

    If you notice, there are two colours on the brush head. The brush head has really soft bristles that offer deep yet gentle cleansing. The green bristles are slightly stiffer with an angled tip that targets the T-Zone and other hard to reach areas. The white bristles are really soft, so it is to be used on our cheeks area.

    This is especially useful for travel, as my skin tends to clog up after being outdoors for long hours.
    I brought the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush to Beijing last week, as you know Beijing is notorious for its record-breaking air pollution. It kept my skin clean and fresh throughout the trip. And guess what! I came back with great skin and didn’t need to do the ‘repair’ work on my skin as I used to do after a long trip. I am so happy! In this picture, I’m only wearing a thin layer of BB cream and I am so glad that my skin does not flare up.
    Even the charging station looks so chic and sophisticated. It comes with a USB cable so I can just plug it into my smartphone/tablet charging head. So easy! One full charge will last for 180 minutes. If you use it for 30 seconds twice a day, it can last for months!
    The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is also suitable for men. Even for a really lazy man like KampungBoy, he loves to use the cleansing brush, as it is quick and hassle free. He just needs to pump some cleanser onto the brush and the brush will do all the work for him!

    Initially we were sharing the cleansing brush by using two different brush heads. However, after a while we are contemplating on getting another cleansing brush as we always fight to bring it to the gym! It’s time to get a second unit.

    Watch this video as KampungBoy demonstrates the usage:

    I noticed that proper cleansing makes my skincare routine more effective. My clean face is like a clean canvas; any subsequent serum or moisturiser gets absorbed into my skin quicker.
    I’m loving how my face feels smoother and look more radiant instantly. My facial therapist also commented that my skin is really clean now without much gunk to squeeze. So does KampungBoy! Now he enjoys taking selfie really up close because his skin has improved so much!

    The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is retailing at RM350 for the USB variant while the brush head is only RM 93 (to be replaced every 3 months). I think it is well priced, as it is a small investment for greater skin and convenience. Plus, it is from a trusted and reliable skin care brand and comes with two years limited warranty.

    It also fits perfectly into our busy schedule. Juggling work and blogging is no joke you know? Imagine coming home from a long day at work, and you are able to clean your face with a click of a button. Indulging in some love yourself moment…

    Its compact size is great for traveling too. We can even lug two units of the cleansing brush and our carry on will still weigh almost the same.

    Last but not least, here are some great news for our readers! There will be a meet & greet session with us on the 29th of November at Clinique Pavilion KL. We will pick 5 winners and you get to bring a friend along. You and your friend will receive an exclusive door gift from Clinique on that day itself. Just answer one simple question here: One full charge on the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush will last for how long? Remember to leave your email address too!

    See you on the 29th of November!
