I have been using the Clarisonic Mia for a few weeks now. After hearing all the benefits and how much better it is at cleaning your skin over just your hands I knew it was something I had to get. I purchased this product (It was not gifted) because I had been wanting to try it for years and when I saw it on sale I knew it was time to get it. When it came time to choosing between all the different versions 1, 2 mini, etc I made sure to ask around, do research and talk to people who sell it to hear which one they thought was better and they all said the same thing.
The difference between the Mia 1 and 2 is different speed settings. The Mia 2 also has a more specific timer, that buzzes to tell you when you need to move onto another part of your face. I did not find this necessary since I simply count in my head:
Forehead– 10 seconds
Nose– 10 seconds
Chin– 10 seconds
Cheeks– 15 seconds each
As you know I deal with breakouts that are very random. Sometimes my face will be clear and others it will break out all at once. I am always open to trying new things in hopes that they will benefit my skin.
I use the Clarisonic twice per day, morning and night. when I use it in the morning I will take a bit of my favorite cleanser and use it in circular motions starting at my forehead and moving down to my nose and chin the last step are my cheeks.
When I use it at night to take off my makeup I will first use my hands and cleanser to take off the makeup and then use the Clarisonic.
The Clarisonic will turn off after 60 seconds, leaving you enough time to clean your face without using it too long. One charge will last 20 uses and the best part is that it’s completely water-resistant so you can take it with you to the shower.
It’s also very important to disinfect as well as change the brush head. I found that many people disinfect it by dipping it into a shallow dish with some rubbing alcohol in it for a few seconds and then rinse well with water. You can purchase the brush head replacement at Sephora (store or website)
Which skin type is it good for?
What it is:
A gentle, one-speed cleansing brush that removes dirt, oil, and makeup up to six times better than hands alone.
– Acne and blemishes
– Dullness and uneven texture
“After only 60 seconds, these patented technologies in the Clarisonic facial brush cleanse skin up to six times better than hands alone. This leaves skin ready for treatment products and prepared for smooth, flawless makeup application.”
I am very big on doing research prior to purchasing or even trying out a new product that has been gifted. I want to know the ingredients that its made out of, how it works and how it has worked on different skin types. This time was no exception. I found the information above on the sephora.com website along with the following reviews:
Versatile, Easy to Use, Waterproof, Effective
“I love my Clarisonic for many reasons as it: -Thoroughly and gently removes all traces of foundation, concealer, primer… Tip: remove eye makeup before so it doesn’t make a mess and drip into your eyes. -It’s waterproof and I enjoy taking it into the shower with me because then I can just rinse off my cleanser in the shower without making a mess. -Has a long battery life. Each cycle is 1 minute and I can usually leave my Clarisonic in the shower for a week, using it daily for one minute, before it dies. -Can be used with liquid cleansers or solid cleansers. “
“I love my Clarisonic! I’ve been using it for 4 months now and it definitely helped clear up my skin; I break out less frequently and the pimples disappear faster when they do happen. My skin feels softer and more smooth and it looks more radiant and healthy. Some advice about using the Clarisonic: -Even though the instructions say to use it twice a day, I found that my skin got irritated when I used it that often. Now I use it once a day, at night, and I still get great results with less irritation”
