Skincare Bootcamp

I hope this doesn't make you love me any less, but I must confess that I've never actually had a "skin regime." I normally stick to the "gift bag skincare" plan. Simply, this basically means that I use different bottles and samples of moisturizer, soaps and the like from gift bags I collect from various events I go to (there's always an event to got to here in New York). Once in a great while I'll find I product I love and actually go out and buy some more of it, but more times than not, I'm pretty lame when it comes to skincare.

However, right before my wedding, I truly got my ass in gear and it really did feel great. I committed to 3 months of weekly facials at the Aveda School here in NY and it really was dreamy. Since this is school, your facials are performed by students, however, don't let that scare you off. I found that the students (who are all toward the end of their training) are even more attentive and consciencetious than many much more expensive facialists I've visited. Best of all, you get an amazing 90 minute facial (along with a foot bath, arm, head, neck and hand massage) for $55 bucks.

Of course, I have not returned for a facial since I said "I do," but that doesn't mean I'm not still thinking about skincare. Which is why I was so darn intrigued by this Panasonic Pore Cleanser. Most attractive to me is the fact that you can use this little tool in the shower--not sure why, but I seem much more able to commit to shower rituals. I also love the idea of the mist, as I know my own skin does respond very well to steam. I'm thinking of snatching one up, but the reviews are somewhat mixed.

Anyone try anything like this (or have any other skincare tips for a lazy chick like me)?
