Thoughts on the Clarisonic Mia?

I love mine. Helped to clear up some acne problems that had persisted for years, honestly. The fact that it exfoliates just a little bit helped me out so much.

I have the Mia2 and I love it. It does such an amazing job at removing all my makeup. A billion times better than using my hands. I also love that it removes all dry skin patches that can look nasty under makeup. I’ve only been using it for almost a month but it seems to have helped as far as making my skin tone a bit more even. Also, a lot of ppl complain about the “purge period” where your skin gets a little worse when you first start using the Clarisonic, however, I never went through that. I would recommend the Mia2 because it has 2 speeds (normal and delicate) so that might have helped.

I have the regular Mia and I like it. I agree with a PP about the fact that it thoroughly removes all my makeup which is a HUGE plus. For that reason it’s my staple. People have raving reviews about how life changing it is, and maybe that is so. I exfoliated regularly before purchasing mine, so maybe that is why I didn’t see a VAST improvement in that area. But I do like mine. Groupon just had a KILLER deal on replacement brushes that I SWOOPED on. 

I don’t think you can go wrong with it. It just didn’t “change my life”.

OH! Also, I bought mine online in a bundle deal on Black Friday of 2012 and didn’t pay $125, plus I got a travel bag, coupon for replacement head, personalized writing…..I think I spend $75-$80 on mine with free shipping.

It’s ehhh for me. I really wanted to love it but I don’t feel like it does much. Maybe I’m using it wrong or something.

@Tphan:  I wanted one really bad but have the most sensitive skin and was nervous to blow all that money so I bought a cvs knock off of the clarasonic and I LOVE it!!! And it was only $20. It was on sale when I bought it. I believe the original price is $30 or so. I don’t think I’ll get a clarasonic because this one works so well… Maybe you could try the cvs one or something similar and see if you like it!

I love my MIA. I have used mine for 18 months now and it’s great. I usually take off my makeup with a wipe first and then clean using my MIA with cleanser which removes everything else left behind.

I have completely overhauled my skin care routine and getting a Mia2 was part of it.  So hard to say what is actually making the biggest difference, the products of the Clarisonic.  I didn’t have big problems with my skin, mostly clogged pores and dryness.  In a month my skin has improved. The blackheads on my cheeks and forehead are essentially gone, my nose where it was the worst they are still there.

@Tphan:  I.Love.My.Mia2.

Its fantastic, my face has never felt so clean!

I also have the Clarisonic Plus (the full sized one with the body buffing brush — I got it as a gift) and I honestly prefer my Mia.. But I gave my Mia to FI, to keep at his place.. lol

I really want to get one, but I want the one with the body attachment too – I think it’s the Plus or Aria or something.  I have a really bad ingrown hair problem on my lower legs, so I hope the Clarisonic could help.

I have the full size Clarisonic and I really like it. It has definitely helped clear up some of the little bumps on my forehead etc. Probably partly because it exfoliates. Now when I wash my face with my hands I feel like I’m smashing my make up into my open pores lol

I’m obsessed with my Mia. Obsessed. It makes my skin soooo silky smooth.

I have the regular Mia, not the Mia2. I loooove my Mia. It’s amazing. FI keeps saying he wants to use it but it is light pink and that deters him (men, ugh). I “pre-wash” my face with a gentle cleanser, just using my hands, then use my Mia and it’s crazy how much makeup still comes off my face.
