I really want to try it, but even for the Mia I’m just not in a position to shell out over a hundred dollars. I’ve heard though that the gentler the cleanser the better, like Cetaphil.

Congrats on your new investment in yourself! I’ve had my Clarisonic Plus for about a month, and I LOVE it. My skin has never been this soft and radiant. I’m still working on clearing out all the persistent blackheads around my nose and chin, but I feel like there are fewer each week. I currently use Clinique 3-step skincare, which I started a week before I got the Clarisonic… Before that I was just rinsing with plain water in the shower (I don’t wear makeup daily, so not much to scrub off). The difference has been night-and-day. Even Fiance commented on my skin this week, and he’s not one to notice little details!

Fiance and I both have quite a lot of skin issues (psoriasis), so I’m starting to use the body brush with regular shower gel on my bad spots while showering. It’s too early to see much improvement, but I feel like it helps clear off some of the flaky bits and lets the topical medicines we use soak in better. I imagine it would be the same with regular dry skin and lotion. I don’t see much need to use the body brush on skin that is already normal, though.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Clairsonic! I’ve had mine for about a year now and use it religiously! Here’s what I can offer:

1. I use aqua glycolic face wash with it–recommended by my derm, it’s not prescription but has to be ordered via pharmacy or you can get it online

2. If you have a flex spending account with your health insurance, it will cover the cost of the Clairsonic and the replacement heads

3. Make sure to keep your heads clean and replace them regularly. I wash mine with warm soapy water once a week and let them air dry, and I can tell at the end of the week when it’s time to clean them–my face doesn’t feel nearly as clean, and make sure to replace them every 3 months!

I have not used the other heads with mine, I don’t have any acne other than on my face, but I have read good reviews on the body scrubber.

I love the Bliss Ogygen Foaming Facial-smells great and leaves my skin feeling silky.  I have also started using the Boscia black mask (think a nose strip for your entire face).  I love my Clarisonic and I can really tell a difference when I slack and don’t use it.  Good luck!

I have been using Bliss products for about 4 years now.  When I was 25 I decided I should start using a moisturizer and Sephora suggested Bliss, “Youth as we know it.”  About a week after I started using it I got a compliment from a coworker that my skin had been looking really great recently.  I never looked back!

My mom is a QVC addict (like 3 boxes a day) so either her or I have tried every single beauty product they sell on there.  She bought the Bliss Oxygen while she got me the Philosophy Oxygen Peel to try.  I have really bad skin.  Really bad, like never been clear a day in my life, cysts, tried everything under the sun, skin.  I LOVE the Philosophy Oxygen Peel.  It’s the only thing that keeps my skin semi-under control and when I get breakouts and use it, they dry up almost overnight and my skin does look like it glows.  My mom really liked her Bliss, but saw my skin after I used the mask one night when I was staying with her a couple weeks ago and was really impressed.  She decided to try out the Philosophy and called me the next day and said she thought that Bliss was so good until she compared it to the Philosophy and now she canceling her auto-ship on the Bliss because it couldn’t even compare to the results she got with with the oxygen peel.  I just started the On A Clear Day Primer with .5 Salicylic Acid that I got from QVC last week.  Really liking it so far!  A primer that primes your skin AND treats breakouts.  Woo hoo!

I use the Clarisonic too.

I’ve been debating on a clarisonic because my face is so dry and flaky it always does better when I exfoliate daily.  Starting in 2012 I’ve been using all philosophy products and they are working GREAT, except I’d like a daily exfoliant instead of the once or twice weekend micro-derm system they have.

Is there a difference in the clarisonic mia and the plus?  The mia seems like such a deal in comparison…

I love my clairsonic! BUT be careful around the corners of your mouth, holy cow I dried them up so bad they cracked, very painful! Otherwise it has made my skin so smooth!
