Clinique's Sonic System and Beyond Perfecting Foundation+ConcealerFriday, July 29, 2016
I have always been a fan of facial exfoliation because I love how the skin glows after. I exfoliate my face once a week, or at the most, twice.
When Clinique sent me their Sonic System I was over the moon excited! I have been obsessing over it for the past months actually and now I get to experience it myself first hand. I'm going to combine two reviews today which includes the Sonic System, and their latest foundation innovation: Beyond Perfecting Foundation+Concealer.
The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is very light and compact. It fits easily in your hand and very easy to control. The small brush head that you can interchange is easy to navigate over your face. The brush bristles which the sonic brush originally comes with, are really soft with rounded edges, very ideal for skin that leans toward sensitive, and that pointed tip with shorter and slightly firmer bristles is excellent for getting at grime around the nose area and other hard to reach areas. Correct and consistent use can result in a brighter, more glowing complexion.

Remember when I raved about the Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus All-Smooth Makeup SPF15 two years ago? Well, imagine that one but better. Better? Seriously? Yes! I swear this new foundation from Clinique is just as awesome.
Right now? I'm really obsessed with this foundation. Completely, utterly obsessed with this new foundation. Aside from Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation Cushion Compact SPF 50+++, I think this could be one of my favorite foundations to use during hot and humid days!
The wand comes with a little velour tip that makes dripping less likely.
Happy Skin's SS Cream with regard to consistency and creamy-ness. I guess with coverage and flexibility as well.
With the wand fresh from the bottle, I didn't even try to scoop out more product. I dotted the foundation on the five areas on my skin and and used my Clinique Sonic Brush with the sponge head.
Beauty Blender on your skin, but it's super fast. All you have to do is lightly glide the wand on the surface of your skin in circular motions until the foundation is evenly spread all over your face.
If you have had your nails done at Dashing Diva, then this device would look familiar. They use their device though for exfoliating though. You can also use this foundation as a concealer alone! Just dab a little product on the areas you most need it and lightly stipple with your ring finger to blend the product.

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:
- Medium to full coverage.
- Non-greasy even without setting with powder.
- Safe for women with sensitive skin.
- Subtle fragrance.
- Skin adapting.
- Melts into the skin, looks like second skin!
- Leaves skin moisturized the whole day, so oil production is controlled.
- Readily available! Easy to obtain.
- Compact! You can bring it when you travel.
- Makes the skin look glowing!
- Adapts to most skin tones/shades.
- I didn't have the urge to keep wiping my face with Gatsby every hour. Keeps the skin looking dewy but not oily.
- Long-lasting! I tested it and it lasted more than 12 hours!
- Does not cake and does not give a pooling effect on the skin.
- Does not fade. Comparable to airbrush foundation.
- Affordable and economical! A little product goes a long way.
How I Used It: You do not need the Sonic System to apply this foundation. You can use any tool you want, but I suggest dotting the foundation on the key areas of your face and spreading it with your chosen medium for applying foundation. If you find the foundation too light of a coverage, you can build it on for a more medium to full coverage.
Will I re-purchase? Yes.
Will I recommend it? Yes.
MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★★+
