Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System With Tarte Cosmetics — An Eye-Opening Experience
Aside from its ground-breaking, trademark sonic technology — a revolutionary skin care innovation beloved by dermatologists, spa technicians, and consumers alike —Seattle-based brand Clarisonic is known for playing nice in the metaphorical beauty, collaborating with other brands rather than adopting a combative, overly competitive attitude (no sand thrown in anyone’s eyes, if you will!) . Over the last two years alone, they’ve unveiled limited-edition kits such as: the Clarisonic Mia Arcona Set (one of my faves to date), the Clarisonic Philosophy Value Set, the Clarisonic Mia and Jurlique Set, and the Clarisonic Plus with Dr. Brandt, Peter Thomas Roth, Ole Henriksen, and Dr Perricone.
Now, as more consumers discover the youngest member of the Clarisonic family, the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System, new co-branded collaborations involving this serum-depositing, anti-aging tool are hitting the market. The most exciting new release: the Sephora.com, available now for $185 at Sephora.com.
If you haven’t yet tested out the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System, here’s a bit of a primer: rather than focusing on cl easing (as with the Clarisonic Plus and Clarisonic Mia brushes), this oval-shape device targets visible aging signs around the eye area (fine lines, crow’s feet, sallow skin, and dark circles) using the same sonic technology utilized in the aforementioned products, massaging the gentle skin under the eyes to stimulate blood flow, all the while infusing the skin with an Anti-Aging Sea Serum packed with hydrating ingredients like marine-derived collagen, trehalose (a complex sugar derived from desert plants), and prickly pear extract; firming agents like marine-derived elastin, African sausage tree fruit extract, and marine-derived glycosaminoglycans; and antioxidant-rich ingredients like Canadian willowherb, oat kernel extract, and marine peptides.
When yo remove the top lid of the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infuser, you’ll find a nozzle with a rubber applicator tip along the top ridge of the base, A conical nuzzle along the lower ridge of the top lid, meanwhile, dispenses a drop of serum with the simple push of a button. Prior to using, you should align this dropper with the applicator, dispensing enough serum to fill the rubber-enclosed applicator tip. Once the serum is contained within the applicator, you can proceed to place the tip flatly underneath your eye, using gentle circular motions to deposit the serum. The Opal will automatically shut down after 30 seconds, at which point you’ll have to refill the applicator tip with serum and move on to your other eye.
The Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System with Tarte Cosmetics allows you to benefit from the anti-aging benefits of the Opal Sonic Infuser and Anti-Aging Sea Serum, but it also includes botanical-based cosmetics from Tarte that will further brighten the eyer area, smooth the eye lid are, and grant you flirty, seductive lashes.
This limited-edition set, then, includes: the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infuser; a full-sized Anti-Aging Sea Serum bottle; two replacement Opal applicator tips; a universal Opal charger; a dainty white wristlet pouch to safely store your Opal; a 0.24 oz. tube of Tarte’s best-selling Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara in black, a multi-tasking mascara that thickens and conditions lashes with pro-vitamin B5 and carnauba wax, lengthens lashes with rice bran wax; and evenly deposits mineral pigments that make the lash line appear denser; a Tarte EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner in black, a highly pigmented liner featuring plant-derived ingredients like soothing aloe leaf, cooling cucumber extract, and antioxidant-rich vitamin E; and a 0.08 oz. tube of the Tarte Lifted Natural Eye Primer with Firmitol, a natural-looking primer that keeps powder and cream shadows in place while also smoothing the skin along the lids for a smoother application and an overall younger appearance thanks to Tarte’s trademark “Firmitol” complex, which includes nerve-relaxing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), muscle-relaxing purslane extract, ginseng extract, and collagen synthesis-stimulating centella asiatica extract.
If you were to purchase these items individually, you’d ring up a $232 total, but by investing in the set, you’ll save nearly $50 dollars. And best of all, you’lll be a camera-ready vixen with a more radiant complexion, smoother skin, fuller lashes, and the come-hither eye makeup look of your choice. Take that, crow’s feet and stumpy lashes!
