Advertorial: How I do my bare minimum makeup look.

This is a sponsored post.

I love gadgets. I love technology. We live in a wonderful time and my growing girth is the testimony to my love of convenience (and my love of food, but that’s not the point here.) I have a rubbish bin in my house that has a motion sensor built into it. When you hover your hand over the lid, it opens automatically. Who needs step bins?

It’s the same with beauty gadgets. I’ll buy into a lot of gimmicks because I love genius ideas. Much like the Clearasil Perfectawash: it is your typical facial wash but with a touch of cool in its packaging. The dispenser comes with an inbuilt motion sensor which detects your hand and dispenses the perfect amount of facial wash.

The reasoning behind such a product was apparently the result of a study done by Clearasil, in which it was found that many people overdose on facial wash. Why you would run such a study is beyond me. Is it possible to be addicted to facial wash? I think I am, as I caught myself dumping enough facial wash into my palm to wash 5 faces the other morning. I think that it’s hard to really be thinking about how big a 5 cent coin is when you are half asleep in the mornings!

To illustrate, I made a little video. It’s a little dodgy, a little stupid, and a whole lot of new. I don’t normally do videos, though I must drop the smallest of hints that I may be taking a step towards my own YouTube channel. ¬_¬;;;;;

I thought that I’d share with you my bare essential makeup look. It’s horrendously simple, and horrifyingly dodgy. I should be ashamed to call myself a beauty blogger! But some days, it’s just impossible to actually have enough time to pretty up, so the bare essentials will have to do when I can’t just get away with no makeup at all.

Things you should know about Clearasil:

  • Perfecta Wash claims to contain pimple fighting ingredients.
  • The automated dispenser delivers exactly 1.5ml of product each time.
  • Available in Super Fruit Extract and Soothing Plant Extract.
  • Suitable for young adults of all skin types.
  • The Super Fruit extract formula is scented.
  • Retails for $19.99 with the dispenser; $11.99 refills only.

I found that:

  • The sensor is very sensitive. I kept forgetting it existed and tried to move it around before turning it off. This resulted in many hilarious accidents.
  • I love the fact that it dispenses the exact amount.
  • I love even more, the fact that I don’t even have to think about how much to use.
  • I like the idea of the refills.
  • It does a really good job at cleaning my face; however, I found it a little too harsh for the dry areas of my face.
  • I did not have any pimple breakouts while trialling this product.
  • I did note that the dispenser was somewhat chunky, and not many of us have that much sink space.
  • I think this would be the perfect product for folks with oily skin.

Not having used this product for too long, I don’t know how long the AA batteries powering the dispenser will last for. I will be blogging about the Clearasil Perfecta Wash again sometime soon, so we shall see. Till next time!

You can learn more about Clearasil online through their website or via their facebook.

    How neat to have a dispenser that dispenses just the right amount of product? I think i’m one of those people who use way too much.

      Aw, thank you! Lazy mornings are definitely an idea, though if it were a lazy morning chances are I’m makeup-less!
