Clarisonic has a variety of products to aid with several different skin issues. Their mission is to develop and market technically advanced and clinically proven products that make a clear difference in skin care.
Clarisonic sent me the Clarisonic Mia™ Sonic Skin Cleansing System.
The Clarisonic Mia is the compact version of the Clarisonic Classic. It is waterproof and includes a Cordless Clarisonic Mia, Compact pLink® International Charger, Sensitive Brush Head, and 1 oz. trial size Gentle Hydro Cleanser. Mine was not personalized, but the website states that with the purchase of the Mia, you will receive FREE personal engraving and FREE ground shipping within the continental United States.
The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing Brush uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to remove up to 6x the amount of makeup that manual cleaning will do. The Clarisonic is supposed to reduce the appearance of pores, improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve absorption of serums and moisturizers. The picture below shows a forehead before cleansing, then using the Clarisonic, and lastly manually cleansing.
I was extremely excited to use the Clarisonic Mia as soon as it arrived. I opened the package and read that I would have to charge it for a full 24 hours before I could use it. Needless to say, I was bummed that I would have to wait, but I plugged the charger into the wall and placed the end on the handle of the Clarisonic Mia and waited my 24 hours.
To use, you simply wet your face and the Mia with warm water. Remove any eye makeup before using the Mia. Apply your preferred cleanser to your face or the Mia and turn it on. With a gentle circular motion, use the Mia to clean your face starting at your forehead. The Mia will automatically shut off after 1 minute.
You can take the brush head off of the handle to clean it once a week. To clean the brush head and handle, simply rinse them with antibacterial soap and warm water. They recommend replacing your Clarisonic brush head every 3-4 months. Replacements are $25 each or $40 for two.
I love that it is waterproof and I can use it in the shower as part of my morning routine. It is really small so taking it with me on trips is really easy. It stays completely charged for 20 minutes, which is 20 uses. It even tells me when the battery is starting to run low by having the brush head pulse and the LED light blink. It requires 18 hours to get a full charge.
I admit that I was a little skeptical about the fact that it is supposed to make my skin feel smooth. I have tried several things, and the Clarisonic really does make my makeup go on easier. I don't have as many dry patches on my sking and it felt more even. I didn't see a noticeable difference in my pores, but my skin feels better and it doesn't take me forever to try and apply my makeup.
You can purchase the Clarisonic Mia™ Sonic Skin Cleansing System for $149 in pink, white, or yellow. With every Pink Clarisonic purchase, they will make a donation to help fund the fight against breast cancer.
