Holiday Girl's Night In with Silk'n SonicCarePlus

Recently Silk'n was nice enough to send me one of their new SonicCleanPlus skin care tools to try out. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and I'm so excited to share my experience with it! The SonicCleanPlus is a perfect addition to a "Girls Night In", giving professional results... No appointments necessary! 

The Silk'n SonicCleanPlus cleans so thoroughly without being too rough or irritating. It cleans away dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities from my skin, leaving it nothing but Silk'n Smooth! You can use it on basically any skin type- normal, dry, or oily. My skin is combination and also a bit sensitive, but I found the SonicCleanPlus gentle enough for daily use. Don't get me wrong though, it packs a punch! It has the largest motor on the market among cleaning brushes which results in a strong vibration sent to every bristle on the brush. This results in a deep yet gentle clean. You can use it on your body, too, and of course it's suitable for use in the shower. It makes a wonderful all-over exfoliating tool, and it comes with three interchangeable brush heads so you can choose which to use on your face and which to use on your body. 

I also love the timer feature, the unit automatically turns off after 60 seconds so you can easily keep track of the treatment time for each part of your face or body. It also has different speed settings and two modes- vibrating and pulsating. Basically it allows you to completely customize your cleansing routine. It's rechargeable and cordless, too! According to Silk'n, it removes 6x more dirt than hands alone. I don't have a microscope and a lab handy, but I can tell you that my skin feels way cleaner after using the SonicCleanPlus than when I just wash my face with my hands.

 I love wearing makeup but I do sometimes worry about the effect of having stuff on my skin every day, and I'm happy that this product can clean my skin so thoroughly. I've noticed my pores looking smaller since I started using it, too. I am so happy I got a chance to try out the SonicCleanPlus.. It's become a part of my everyday routine and my skin couldn't be happier. It would be such a great holiday gift for a beauty lover, spa enthusiast, or just someone who wants to take great care of their skin! And did I mention it comes in grey and pink? :) You can get 15% off the SonicCleanPlus (and storewide at*) using code GIRLSNIGHT through November 20th :) 

*excluding Flash&Go, Flash&Go Luxx , Flash&Go Long Life Upgrade Kit, and  Flash&Go Long Lasting Lamp

#CelebrateInStyle Holiday Season Preview Event from Single Edition Media!

This week I was invited to a wonderful event hosted by Single Edition Media and InStyle in New York City. The event, #CelebrateInStyle, was held at The Glass Houses in Chelsea. The event served as an experience program for brands to showcase new and exciting products to a select network of bloggers in anticipation of the holiday season. It also allowed me to catch up with some of my blogger friends! I saw a lot of cool products and am so excited to write my 2014 Holiday gift guide! Heres a little recap of the event:

We were greeted by a lovely setup from Brancott Estate's Flight Song Wines. Look at that beautiful sunset in the background! The Glass Houses was a lovely venue with panoramic views of the city.
Vigoss had a table set up with some of their new awesome new jeans. Aren't the black ones cool? The are coated denim, which gives you a nice stretch with a shiny leather-like look. 
Silk'n had some of their amazing products on display. 
Sugarwish had such an adorable table! They offer a really cool service where you send a friend or loved one an e-gift certificate, and the recipient can redeem it for a cute box of the candy of their choice! 
Can you believe these clothes are from Sears? Sears Style was at the event with a great display from their new Metaphor collection. Really on-trend, well made clothes at an excellent price point. Everything is under $100. Love the details on that sweater. 
Etienne Aigner was showcasing their gorgeous handbags. These styles are so perfect for Fall!
Elizabeth Arden had one of the most beautiful tables, with a visual display of some of the fragrance notes that make up their classic perfumes. 
We were treated to delicious, vegetarian hors d'oeuvres courtesy of Gardein. 
Bulova has such an amazing variety of beautiful timepieces. 
After browsing the tables we listened to some very interesting presentations from some of the brands, like this one from Sears Style. How cute is that red dress?

My friends Diana ( Heather (, and I enjoyed the Flight Song Pinot Grigio as we met the brands.. We always love seeing eachother at blogger events like this! 

Attendees were also treated to an amazing gift bag featuring goodies from the brands at the event and more! The bag included a beautiful lipstick from Elizabeth Arden, a stylish bracelet from Etienne Aigner, a gift card to DSW (omg!), some yummy protein gummies from RAPProtein, hair products from Beautiful Textures, scented holiday ornaments from Balsam Hill, Jergens BB Body Cream, and much much more. One of my favorite items in the bag was a beautiful votive candle set from  Alassis Candles. The packaging is beautiful and they smell amazing! 

I had an amazing time at the event meeting all of the sponsors and getting in the holiday mood! I can't wait to write my gift guide, stay tuned for more in-depth features on some of the new products I was introduced to. You can check out all the event sponsors on Twitter, too:
