On-the-Go Cleansing Routine


aimee_song_of_style_mia_fit_cleanser_clarisonicI’ve talked about my travel beauty routine a lot, but I thought it was time to share the key steps I take in my On-the-Go Cleansing Routine, which is equally (or more!) important. I always take multiple steps to make sure that my skin looks its best and healthiest, but to keep my suitcase light, I only pack the most important steps when I travel. I usually start with an oil cleanser. Ever since fashion week I’ve been obsessed with the one by Laura Mercier because it cleans my makeup off really well. After making sure I’ve removed all my makeup, I rinse my face then gently cleanse with my Clarisonic.

My current favorite is the Clarisonic Mia FIT cleansing brush. I previously talked about a Clarisonic brush in a blog post about my fashion week beauty routine, but I’m so happy they came out with this smaller version that I can pack with me. I put the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Skin Illuminating Cleanser on the brush and use it all over my face, focusing mostly on my forehead, chin, nose, and neck. I can really notice the difference when I use Clarisonic because it feels so gentle on my skin.

  2. I always hate seeing what Clarisonic comes out with next because I’m still using the old Clarisonic Mia, and I can’t resist the urge to want to buy the travel sized one. I love this device for assisting in removing makeup, but not for much else.
    + love the marble backdrop you used here..with the flowers..stunning visual, and tips.

  3. It’s so hard to keep up with a cleansing routine when you’re vacationing or running around. Sometimes you just don’t want to… Thanks for sharing what you do.

  4. I love a good oil cleanser. Ooh, I heard about the travel sized Clarisonic recently and can’t wait to purchase it. Especially since I travel a lot & hit the gym quite a bit and want to cleanse immediately after to avoid breakouts.

    Thanks for sharing!


  5. Admittedly I don’t travel as much as you do, Aimee, and I doubt I ever will GRIN but to comment on your list, I love the Re:cipe Rose Petal Cleansing Oil. The best thing to ever happen to cleansers in general. That’s always my first line of cleansing :) and the smell is simply divine.

  6. Seems like a great investment, since I haven’t found anything else that convinced me 100%.
    And for someone who’s obsessed with how your skin looks like in photos I should definitely think about it.

  7. Great tips, Aimee! I have this product that is basically like a Clarisonic but a different brand and really love it! I only use it like once a week as I think otherwise it’s too rough on your skin as it’s such deep cleansing! Don’t you think?


  8. I have the Clarisonic Mia 1 and sadly, it has been very disappointing. I purchased a cheapie off-brand about 10 years ago for $20 and it has a 360 rotating brush — it works better than the $89 Clarisonic I currently have. As a fashion designer, I am on the go a lot, too. So, I definitely agree with the compact size, as well as the oil cleanser you mentioned! There are a ton of awesome new oil cleansers on the market today. Lovely post! Thanks for sharing! :)

  9. I couldn’t live without my Clarisonic! I forgot it on a trip once and I could instantly tell the difference from not using it.

  10. I am Beautician & have to say that washing the face with cleansing brush is super important.
    Even though we have clean feeling after removing our make up you have to clean your skin deeper and that’s why I always recommend cleansing brushes.

    Clarisonic is my fave as well.

  11. respected/mam with all due respect of america;ns plz dont think this is mad with tears just few secs of your precious time beg u need of help if trust plz help us and share

  12. i hope that is a trade in program with clarisonic to upgrade my brush, from mia1 to the mia2 or… even better brush. …. *im dreaming.. hahahha !!

  13. I’ve heard so many mixed reviews about Clarisonic, I’m too scared to try one out. I’m so tempted though. They seems like they would clean out your pores & removes everything from your face really well!

  17. Contemplating on whether I should buy the clarisonic or not!

    Thanks for the review! <3

  18. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Clarasonic Mia FIT but have yet to try it out! I’m always looking for new skincare products and it seems like a great investment.


  19. I totally need that little Clarisonic tool for travel! My biggest complaint traveling is that I can’t properly exfoliate my skin- especially during longer travel stints (2 weeks and on). I usually only travel with carry-on so minimizing the extras I bring is super important.
