rio sonicleanse giveaway

Time for another pre-Christmas giveaway here at A Thrifty Mrs, this time it is a Rio Sonicleanse. You may remember earlier in the year I did a video (Rio Sonicleanse review video) about the way this device slots in with my skincare. I loved it then and I still do now.

The Sonicleanse is a facial cleansing device with a brush head that pulses 10,000 times per minute and buffs the skin in order to loosen dirt and cleanse the pores. My skin is so much better for having this as a friend. I don’t have the best skin in the world due to my illness and medication but before I started using this device my skin was in a terrible, terrible state and I found it really upsetting. My friend rather sweetly bought me this device and I haven’t looked back since.
I use the device in the evening with a cleanser (full details in the video) and find it leaves my skin refreshed, clean and noticeably clear of blemishes even in areas which I’d found hard to clear of marks in the past – like my nose and chin.
These devices when compared to general cleansers from the chemist aren’t cheap, with the Rio Sonicleanse coming in at £49.99 – that said I think they are incredibly similar to the much more expensive Clarisonic – this is most certainly the thrifty alternative. On top of that, using the Sonicleanse has knocked me off my (what felt like) never ending and not to mention very, very expensive quest to find the perfect cleanser.

If you want to watch my review or know more about the products I use with it and how it fits into my lifestyle watch my review on the embedded video below or click here to hop over to my YouTube channel.

Isn’t the thumbnail sexy? Ha!

  2. Dear Thrifty,

    There’s a strange dangly thing at the back of my throat, oh yes I know, everyone has one, but there’s something sinister about mine…. It never fused together and mine is split in two, just like on the cartoons….. What on earth could make me feel better about my abnormality? Oh yes some fancy skin are gizmo of course.

    Yours,
    Freaky McFreakison….

  4. Ok….When I was 9, I tried to bite my sisters ear off, because she ate the last Kit Kat. Shamefully true!

  5. Aged 6, I told my Granddad (and everyone else on the bus) that the baby in the seat in front of us “Didn’t come from the hospital, it came out of its Mummy’s vagina”. Yes I was that kid, I also told my entire infant school class that “Mummies have eggs and Daddies have squirms”….

  6. Dear Thrifty,
    when I lived in a small flat I had a huge gas meter in a cupboard, with such little storage and electric cooker, I rang the gas board and they quickly removed the offending item, more shelf space, great !!! that evening I ran a bath and it took me ages to work out why I didn’t have any hot water. Yup, you guessed it I had not realised that my heating and hot water supply was gas fired !!!

  7. I once went shopping and bought by shopping at the self scan then got home and realised I had left my shopping!

  8. A funny fact about myself… hmmm… when i was younger i was bitten by a squirrel! i was at school and had to go with my friend to the recycling bins and on the way there a squirrel ran up my leg and bit me, the whole situation was both hiarious and terrifying! it was actually quite a bad cut and i ended up having to have rabies shots haha! xx
    [email protected]
    This is such a great giveaway, i really struggle with my skin and im hoping a product like this could be the answer! xx

  9. I once appeared in a book about Irish wolfhounds. My parents bought one from a breeder who was writing a book about them and used my picture for the chapter about how good they are with kids.

    I am wearing the most horrific pastel 80s jumper and the worlds biggest hair. *sad face*

And yes I do plan to dress up. But Shhhhhhhhh don’t tell anyone because I’m studying to be a doctor and I don’t think it will go down to well with my peers lol

  11. Dear Mrs Thrifty,
    When I was also 19, I went to a Robots in Disguise gig where I convinced the ever so tall man in front of me and my mate to kneel the whole night. After a few gins, I let the band draw over me with permanent marker, went home in a shopping trolly with a traffic cone and then poured beer out a window so the ducks outside could get as drunk as I was. Awww Student days, I miss thee!

    Great giveaway and I just tweeted :)

    Ps if this is my second comment sorry I wasn’t sure if the first went through

  14. the first time i went to london I was in a cafe and went to go to the toilet, i was too busy looking at my phone and the next minute i opened a staff door which was alarmed and everyone looked at me as this alarm went off and they couldn’t turn it off, the most awkward thing was that after it i had to ask a member of staff where the toilets were!

  15. When I was little, I was helping my grandad make soup on Bonfire Night and when I asked him what kind of soup he was making, he said Firework Soup. The next day, I refused to eat the soup and when my mum asked me why I started crying and said it had fireworks in it and I didn’t want them to explode when I ate it. I was a very gullible child I guess!!

  16. As a newly qualified teacher, I managed to sneeze and fart at the same time. I was saved by a teenage boy who commented “Cool Miss, How did you do that?” Try living that one down!

  17. I once caught my foot trying to get out of a cab in front of a fancy club. The cab then moved off whilst I was being dragged along squealing. Everyone laughed *sob*

  18. Hmm…I once walked out of a toilet in a fancy restaurant with my skirt tucked in my tights. Not my finest half hour.

  19. My father used to tell my brothers and sister and me that when when the icecream truck played it’s music it meant that it was out of icecream! Because my nan had a long driveway up to her house we couldn’t see the Icecream Van parked up and when we heard it we thought it had ran out! I will probably tell any children I have the same thing though – saves a lot of money in the summer!

  20. You so classy Mrs T! My little known fact is that when I was 14 and got my braces off I also had a treatment to help stop my teeth returning to their original places. The orthodontist cut all the nerves in my top front teeth (ouch). Anyhoo, this means that when I have had a few tipples it makes my mouth really numb…..and so I quite like to bite people; just to make sure my teeth are still there!

  21. I cried last week when Brandon Flowers from The Killers touched my head, held my hand, and told me ‘it’s alright,’ I’m so embarrassing. When I say I cried, I mean bawled my eyes out to the point where I think the rest of the guys in the band thought there was something wrong with me.

  22. Dearest Thrifty,

    Several things are funny about myself, I could hardly name one, but a fee come to mind;
    I drool sooooo bad in my sleep but more so when I dream about food, I have woken my partner on more than one occasion talking about “David Guetta” in my sleep (I don’t know???) and when I was a child I would hide/run away from older women with long hair as I was convinced they were witches and wanted to eat me like Hansel and Gretel.

    I hope you have enjoyed the insight!

  23. I spend my life in a daydream, honestly – one minute I’m here, the next I’m gone! Such a good giveaway. x

  24. I went on camp in year 7 with school and we did loads of challenges, such as zip wire, leap of faith etc. One was swinging from one obstacle to another via a rope (like tarzan). Well, I let go of the rope and fell on my bum in a load of mud in front of everyone! I had my whole year in hysterics (and was rather humiliated!) haha
    Great giveaway :)

  27. Fun Christmas fact: When I was little I was petrified of Santa Claus, and going in the ‘Santa’s grottos’ would scare the shit out of me, I’d cry and scream; I was frightened of old people for some reason and him in particular!
    To this day, I still don’t like him!

  29. Before setting off on a long car journey for my brothers wedding, i met up with family at my cousins. I had a quick toilet stop, once i came out of the bathroom every one was laughing at me, i only had a trail of toilet roll hanging from the inside of my jeans, i was so mortified!lol.

  30. When I was little my parents hired a overhead projector to project all my favourite kids books characters onto my bedroom wall and paint them for me. When my new bedroom was done and my parents had a little coffee break, I took my red crayon and coloured them all in – they were not impressed!

  33. I’m not sure if it’s little known, but it’s quite funny…I have a phobia of birds due to getting chased by a turkey as a child. Then I fell into a pond.

    Also, slightly related to your fact, my mum once sat on a bollard in the street at 3am drunkenly singing ‘SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME’…

  34. Little known fact: Although I did a skydive at 18, the idea of a bungee jump frightens me because I know you can damage your eyes – but, I’ve promised myself that I’ll do a bungee on my 35th birthday. I decided that the day after my skydive!

  36. Little known fact to British people: My surname is very rare and in Danish (my native language) it sounds a lot like the Danish word for Santa Claus. Because of this I never believed in Santa, simply because then my dad would have been Santa and he didn’t have the red coat or a white bushy beard. However, it also had a very unfortunate side effect, namely that I would not allow others to lie about Santa existing. So, in kindergarten at a Christmas do, Santa appears. All the kids are happy and excited, except me. I, of course, walk up to Santa pulls off his beard and declare him a fraud. Needless to say the parents of the crying children were not happy, my mum was shunned because she evidently is a bad parent, and I was condemned as the kid who ruined Christmas – a “stigma” I had to live with until I left school.

  41. Great giveaway!

    I have so many! My husband would have a field day telling you ridiculous things about me! I genuinely and honestly thought mickey mouse was a monkey until the ripe old age of 24 until a conversation with my husband enlightened me. I managed to keep this humiliation hidden until our wedding day when my husband informed everyone in his speech! Luckily it was a small wedding and I don’t think many people believed him anyway cos I don’t think they thought anyone could be so stupid!

    Hope you have a lovely birthday and Christmas to you and your family!

    Random fact; I was ummm not shy as a child and once ran up and down a bus shouting slap head at bald people. My uncle tells me I also actually slapped someone on their head but that can’t be true…

    I follow on twitter and have tweeted! @shirazza85 .

    Funny fact about me? Hmmmm, I cant use the first page in a note pad, ever! I have to leave the first page blank! I get really distressed if someone uses that page too and then cant use the notepad from the front and have to use it in reverse! Obviously then leaving the last page (which is now the first page) blank! Weird i know!

    Love all your posts and am an avid reader and recomend you to all my friends!

  45. I once pulled 50 pints of Guinness for a film crew (when I worked in their social club) and one of those was the swirly pint at the end of the advert for many years … we drank them all between us afterwards.

    My email links off my blog :) @perditaspursuit is my twitter self.

  46. A little known fact about me….I am incredibly gullible. To the point that I once believed (thanks to my darling family!) that tartan paint actually existed, that fireworks were one-sided and that you had to sign a contract when you bought an 18 certificate film that you wouldn’t show it to anyone under 18. Why oh why am I telling you and the internet this?!

  47. A little known fact about me….I am incredibly gullible. So gullible in fact, that I once believed in the following (thanks to my darling family!)

  48. Dear thrifty, I not so long ago wore a maxi skirt to teso to do my big shop , while walking round I felt my skirt being pulled down, it was all wrapped around the trolley wheel ansd I couldn’t bend to pull it out and if I move it tugged it more. This resulted in me flashing my bum ( I’m nasty faded see through primark pants ) to the fruit and veg aisle customers. Until a very fit man came and lifted my whole trolley so I could pull it out :( [email protected]

  49. When I was little I was running around in the house, unfortunately I then tripped up and I landed on the coffee table. More precisely my chin landed on the coffee table and my teeth went through my tongue! Cue a mad dash to the hospital where I got my tongue sewn up!

  50. Hmm.. To add to your ‘classy’ fact hehe, i once woke up after a night out in a little old ladies house. I didn’t know her but she gave me and friends breakfast and drove us back to town to get the bus, she found us walking about and offered us a bed for the night, apparently :/ I’ve never been that drunk since!

  51. Not proud to admit but once my knicker elastic went while crossing the road. Calmly stepped out and continued on my way. I was only 12 at the time!

  52. I really want to try one of these, my skin is making my life a misery at the moment :(

    Random fact: The most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me is locking myself out of my flat… completely NAKED. I had to fashion a poncho and a wrap skirt from some leftover newspaper and went downstairs to knock on my downstairs neighbour “Debbie’s” door- to my horror, she’d moved out and STEVE had moved in! He went and got me a jacket and came up to try and help me- it turned out his key fitted my door lock (not a euphemism) and so overcome with joy was I that I forgot what I was wearing and through my arms around him in gratitude, the jacket flew open and I was pressing my nakedness against him. That was 5 years ago and nothing has come close to being that humiliating…

    Surely that’s got to be worth a Rio Sonicleanse!!

  53. Thanks for the giveaway Thrifty!
    About 2 years ago when I was in school, I was coming out of the gates and saw what I thought was my mums car, so I walked over like I would any other day and got in, sat down, and started to close the car door, when I looked around I realised it wasn’t my mum!!! It was a lady with curly hair! I’ve never moved to fast in my life!
    I felt so stupid, still can’t believe I actually got in the wrong car! Who does that!?

Well after watching their Deeply Dippy video being filmed we tried to get their autograph – at some point we ended up pressed against their backs so I decided to autograph the back of his shirt instead – you never know – mine might be worth more than his some day :)

    Strangely enough this is a little known fact about me :)

  57. A funny little fact about me?…oh god there’s so many! One time whilst waitressing someone knocked me when I was carrying a glass jar of tomato sauce, it’s fair to say the place looked like a murder scene splattered everywhere and in my hair…even the ceiling! Never live that one down!

  58. I used to be in a choir, and we were performing at the Manchester music college, and i got my arm stuck in a chair in from of a couple of thousand people. I had to be carried off the stage, attatched to chair, over the heads of the rest of the choir. I will forever be known as ‘chair girl’. dear oh dear.

  59. Dear Thrifty,

    Well this might be funny to anyone not me, I wasn’t laughing at the time. When I was living at uni a couple of years ago, we had a garden which has some steep uneven rockery steps. One sunny afternoon I was sunbathing and having a barbeque with my boyfriend. I was tending the bareque in my bikini and lost my footing and fell backwards down 3 or 4 steps ripping the guttering off with me. Luckily my boyfriend caught my foot before I smashed my head on the stone patio. That wasn’t the end of the drama though, once I’d picked myself up crying, bleeding and cut, I had to go to my local A&E where to my horror I had to bare my bum to the handsome male nurse who cleaned me up and smoothered my wounds in vaseline. I’m still not sure what was worse, my horror realising I had to show my rear to a complete stranger or a the pain from my wounds.

    I hope it made you laugh, everyone else does when I tell them.

    I’m training to be a lawyer and when I started studying at 17, I told my younger brother that shouting “SHOTGUN” was enforceable by law…and he believed me! He was 15 so he probably should have known better!
    Fantabulous giveaway and I love your blog.

  70. I am roaring with laughter after reading these!!! Mine isnt really that funny by comparison to most of these! I am petrified of moths and butterflies to the extent that I will start crying and screaming and will be physically sick if one comes within about 10 feet if me, I have been known to strip near naked in the past if I think one might be near me or have touched me! :S alicethroughthedressingroom@gmail.com

  77. I often get an annoying loud rumbly tummy in my lectures just before lunch, and always try to cover it by having a coughing fit; pretty sure I’m now known to my class of 300 as either the “coughing girl” or “the-always-hungry-fake-cougher”. University life is sweet.

  84. When I was younger… and stupider I dared my younger brother to lick, yes lick, his scale electric track. I have absolutely no idea why. I think I thought it would be funny and I was a little bit mischievous. My brother refused so in an attempt to convince him I showed him that it wouldn’t hurt him. So I did it, thinking nothing would happen. I was wrong. I had a little electric shock on the tongue and felt like an absolute idiot!

Yep, she had a wee.

    Little known, and the nurse at A&E thought it was funny fact, I once broke three toes whilst walking on my hands. I only wish I could still do a blooody handstand, let alone walk on my hands.

  104. My little known fact is that I once appeared on 15-1. If that’s not embarrassing enough, William G Stewart asked us all what our names were. My mind went blank (always good when you’re about to go on TV on a game show) and I shouted “Plymouth!”

  105. Little known fact about me – I lack common knowledge a lot of the time, unfortunately. For a very long I was certain Godzilla was real and that it actually happened. That was until Christmas day 2010 when I was sitting in the living room with my boyfriend and has entire family (+ extended family) and Godzilla came on the film we were watching and I blurted out ‘how terrible for all those who experienced Godzilla’, swiftly I was laughed at, got a couple of horrified looks and informed that Godzilla wasn’t real. From that day forward my nickname in the house has been Godzilla. True story, though I wish it weren’t, its just plain stupid. Lets put it this way, I’d have ran to Rio if I could have in that moment.

    This is a really reasonable priced tool for cleaning, expected it to be more x

  106. my ‘funny fact’ (although not so funny at the time) is when I was about 8, I was sitting doing my homework with one of those cheap yellow pencils you get from Poundland etc with the wee rubber at the end. Well, the rubber had come lose out of its silver holder on the end on the pencil, and when I sniffed up the rubber went shooting up my nose and got wedged completely in there. A hospital trip and a few tears later all was sorted thankfully haha! cg_x3@hotmail.com xxx

    Well… I was crabbing on a jetty with my cousin a few years back. The whole thing was covered in mesh, kind like chicken wire. So I decided my feet hurt so I would go and stand on this bit that didn’t have any mesh. So when I caught a crab, I screamed, stepped back and my foot went between the two planks of wood. Totally stuck. The fire brigade had to be called to come and get me out. I thought they were going to chop my leg off. They then called the ambulance, as they were stretchering me to the ambulance I noticed that at least 100 people had stopped to watch me. I was so embarrassed. Then to top it off, while I was In the ambulance the coast guards turned up. Luckily I still have my leg and that little un-meshed bit is now meshed off.
