    So on the adult test…I don’t eat meat, so the fish one should never apply and i don’t plan on getting a credit card because of having been raised under my parent’s no debt philosophy, so the credit card cab thing also doesn’t apply. but the peanut butter and presidential election and fear of birds thing applies. half an adult? lol

    It says on the Clarisonic website that it’s gentle enough to be used twice daily (search under the FAQ’s) and I’ve read many times that the Clarisonic is not not not an exfoliator so.. now I’m confused.
