Limited-Edition Clarisonic Hope Mia 2010 — A BCA Month Special
On Monday morning, I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Robb Akridge, Clarisonic‘s Vice President of Clinical Affairs, at the Trump Soho hotel in NYC. During the event, Akridge discussed the sonic technology that revolutionized the skincare world when the Clarisonic Cleansing System made its debut, the results from clinical studies documenting the Clarisonic’s superior performance, the science behind the Clarisonic Opal unveiled earlier this year, the alliances Clarisonic has formed with other brands that have led to co-branded, limited-edition skincare sets, and much more. He even showed media members slides of some of the prototypes that preceded the Clarisonic brush (cue the video above to 2:09 for a look at some slightly frightening precursors). And, of course, he discussed the latest news regarding Clarisonic initiatives and offerings.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Clarisonic introduced the above-pictured, limited-edition Hope Mia brush which features the phrase “Hope Is Beautiful” in bright pink cursive lettering along the entire white brush handle. For each of these sold, Clarisonic will donate $15 to Look Good…Feel Better, an organization devoted to providing beauty resources and complimentary makeup sessions for women undergoing chemotherapy or any other cancer treatment. The organization’s mission is to improve these women’s confidence regarding their appearance as they courageously battle this terrible disease.
The proceeds from the Hope Mia will be granted in addition to the initial $100,0000 donation Clarisonic made to LGFB. And the giving doesn’t end there: the brand will donate $1 for every “like” its Facebook page receives.
This kind of hope is rather beautiful.
