Okay, the post title may not be 100% accurate. But I fully intend to purchase a Clarisonic with my tax refund, which is money that the US government owes me. Give it back so I can have pretty skin!
I filed my return really early this year, so I expect to get my dinero in the next few weeks… which should be awesome! I usually put off filing until close to April 15th, but this year, what with being unemployed and all, I figured I had no excuse. So for once, I should see my refund money before my birthday in late March. And what better birthday gift is there than perfect skin?
I’m still a little nervous about making such a big purchase. And I’m worried I’ll hate it, despite all the hype — but I’m getting it from Nordstrom, so I shouldn’t have to worry too much, since I can always return it. (Although, Nordstrom being what it is, I’ve had some really unpleasant customer service experiences there recently, so I’m paranoid even though they have that great reputation.) And despite the return policy, I somehow feel guilty and crazy spending that much on skincare, even though I’m sure I’ve spent well in excess of $200 on products I didn’t wind up liking all that much. Just not all at once!
But thanks to Oprah, anyone wanting one of these babies has to pre-order. Thankfully, my local Nordstrom is very accommodating, and they’re putting me at the top of the list so I can get one in March. Should be perfect timing for taxes, which should make for perfect skin on my birthday, in theory. (Which, as it happens, falls on Easter this year. Wouldn’t you agree that both God and the Government want me to be Gorgeous? C’mon, help me justify this!)
