I have the regular Mia, not the Mia 2. I didn’t think I’d need the two speeds (or to spend the extra money), and I still don’t. I absolutely loooove it. I can’t speak highly enough about it.

ETA: It comes with a “Sensative” brush. I haven’t actually tried it yet, as I use one that’s just one step softer called the “Delicate” brush. After this brush is done, which will be probably another month, I’ll be trying the Sensative brush to see how my skin deals with it.

I have a classic clarisonic… I love it. Been using one since 2007, my skin breaks out any time I have to stop using it. I use the pore cleansing brush. It’s a total god send! Unfortunately I have been using retin a since halloween so I can’t use my clarisonic even though I know it will help with the purging…

I have sensitive skin and tend to break out a lot (for me that was always having at least one decent sized pimple). I got the clarisonic and started using it twice a day. I recently read somewhere that using it too much can cause additional irritation, so I started using it only at night. My skin is much smoother and calmer using it only once a day. Note: I use CeraVe, not their special face wash and the exfoliator brush. Once I figured out the system that worked for me, it was worth the money.

@LiliKitty:  Agree on LOVING the Clarisonic. But I did buy the 2 speed one, since my skin is pretty sensitive, but I do occasionally use the “firmer” setting for deep cleaning. 

Don’t buy any of those imitation brushes. They really just don’t work. I probably would have saved money if I just bought the Clarisonic first!

Plus, I love that there are several different types of brush heads, ranging from super soft to coarser, depending on your skin. I use the one for sensitive skin.

@ellbell921:  Congrats! Can’t wait for you to try it out! Just another note… When I bought mine, the lady at Sephora said I might experience an initial semi-bad breakout. This is because the tool is literally pulling crap up from deep down in your skin. Stick with it for a few weeks if this happens.

@ellbell921:  I use Perricone MD Nutrative Cleanser. It’s pricey, but the great thing about a Clarisonic is that I literally use a 1/2 pump and it goes much farther than just using your hands.

I love my Clarisonic Mia so much, I was going to post it on my FB status.. 

A co-worker commented on my skin yesterday, that I looked like I was “glowing”.  It’s amazeballs.  My pores shrunk dramatically and my skin just feels amazing.  I bought a Mia for both my sister and bestie.

I use mine only nightly with a gentle cleanser.

I’m a dentist, so immediately after I heard that Clarisonic stemmed from the makers of Sonicare I was immediately sold.  Love my Sonicare too!

I bought the Mia 2 about 4 weeks ago. I can’t really give it the rave reviews yet because I haven’t really noticed a huge difference. I will say that I don’t break out as much (but that might be because I’ve also changed my cleanser and moisturizer, I’ve been drinking loads more water, and taking omega-3 supplements).

It does clean your face very well, though. People says their face feels sooo much smoother and cleaner, but I don’t wear a lot of makeup in the first place, so I don’t notice how much cleaner it is as opposed to using just my hands.

And just a tip – do not use it too much at the beginning. I did because I was so excited, and I went through a couple days of what I thought was “purging” (breaking out in tiny little red bumps on my forehead where I never had them before), so I stopped for a couple of days and then eased my way back on it. I now use it just once a day and with a mild cleanser.

Ok all you clarisonic ladies: I’m just about to give up on mine.

I have used it once a day, twice a day- regular brush head, sensitive brush head-I disinfect it after each use.

I’m breaking out more then ever.

I just ran out of clarisonic cleanser. Any recomendantions on what to use? Mosturizers that might go well? Could I not be mosturizing enough and that’s why my skin is breaking out?
