Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System Reviews
Hooked!After at least a year of faithfully reading reviews and talking to friends, co-workers, and clients about their Clarisonics and how much they love them, I finally bit the bullet and bought one. I am SO happy I finally did! After looking and looking I could not find a less expensive price than $99 and I just figured with a wonderful product like this that always receives excellent reviews, it wou...read moreld never be on sale. I purchased mine from my local Ulta and they gave me a free travel bag and trial size cleanser. I was only willing to purchase it if they had the baby pink one, and they did so I purchased it and was ecstatic to take it out of the box and charge it. It comes with a charger, trial size cleanser, and a one year warranty from the date of purchase so be sure to keep your receipt no matter where you purchase it from. My first impression upon opening the box is my Mia is so beautiful and feminine!! Pink is my favorite color so I had to pick that color but they have such a beautiful array of colors for the Mia and they are all unisex as well. My Mia felt pretty lightweight, not very light nor very heavy, and sleek all over. It has an on button in the center of it that has a 1 minute timer on it so it takes the guesswork out of figuring out how long to cleanse your face. The instructions in the manual say to charge the Mia for 24 hours before using and than you can unhook it and use it until it needs to be charged again. The manual says to wet the brush with warm water and apply cleanser onto the brush; my friends and co-workers told me to just put a small amount right in the hole in the center of the brush head and that is more than plenty to wash my entire face, neck, and decollette. I use my Philosophy purity cleanser and get that squeaky clean feeling from it and my Mia while still having super soft skin afterwards. Upon cleansing my skin with my Mia I begin on my cheeks and work all over my face onto my neck and decollette. As everyone told me and having read information on it, the brush head oscillates all over and is so gentle. It does not irritate my skin, and penetrates my makeup and takes it all off. The only thing that I knew I had to do was remove my eye makeup which makes sense but any makeup above my eyebrow bone comes off and also underneath my eyes. As I cleanse I can see the makeup melting off my face and my skin feels super clean!! After a minute of cleansing the Mia will turn off because it's on a timer but you can press the button as many times as you'd like if you feel like you didn't get your whole cleanse in. After I'm finished I rinse off my brush head and gently use my fingers to get anything off the brush head I missed with just the water. I use a towel and dry the entire Mia and lay it face down with the little clear cover over it so it does not bend my bristles. After patting dry my face and neck with a towel and rubbing it a little I am in love with my Mia even more!! My skin feels clean, soft, and is makeup free!! I am BEYOND happy I finally purchased this; it is truly worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!! The morning after I used my makeup and went into school my friends complimented me on my great skin looked and I told them I was using my Clarisonic! My oil and moisturizer go on better, and my makeup looks 10x better!! I HIGHLY recommend buying this, you will not regret it!! If you aren't able to get it for some reason, put it on your birthday wish list or Christmas list!! I love my Mia!! — 4 weeks agoLamexicana1 | 134 reviews
HOLY GRAIL!I'm pretty late to jump on the Clarisonic bandwagon...what was I waiting so long for?!! I've been using the Mia 2 for a month now and my skin looks absolutely glowing and flawless. My main problem were my huge clogged pores, oily skin, and the occasional pimple or two. Within a week of using, my pores shrunk by at least 50% and my once dull skin became glowing and radiant. I'm not even sure how to...read more explain it, my skin just looks plump and like it is glowing from within. It did more than any serum or lotion could ever do for my skin. I am absolutely amazed. My skin is soft and feels balanced now. It didn't break me out at all as it did for others. I'm completely smitten with this product and feel it is completely worth the money. I realize the price does hold a lot of people back but it is so worth the investment. What you get is a high quality tool that delivers exactly what it claims. Your skin will thank you for it! — 2 years, 2 months agoModernDayWriter | 205 reviews
awesomeMy facial tone and complexion has greatly improved since I began using the clarisonic twice a day. It's water tight so you can take it in the shower with you. — 1 year, 1 month agorouxblonde | 92 reviews
Every women should own!I just bought mine 2 months ago and it has change my life. If I don't use it for a weekend my skin feels horribly and I feel so relieve using it again. My face feels clean, fresh, as it could breath for itself. My skincare routine finally seams to work, my pores are much smaller, and my skin is a lot smoother. Now I'm starting to think of buying the Clarisonic Opal. — 2 years, 4 months agoreneegro | 210 reviews
mediocreI got this product not only for myself but for my teenage son. I have very little to say about it that is positive, unfortunately. I got the Deep Pore head for myself and I feel that it is inferior to even using a washcloth. I do not feel that the cleansing is adequate in the least. There are several similar products on the market and many are a tenth of the price or less. I also thought it w...read moreas too difficult to change the heads. The little prongs are easy damaged as are the bristles. And the fact that it has to be changed as often as a toothbrush with heads costing $20 plus is a deterrent. One aspect of it that is nice is that it is quite small and portable. I also like that it has a charger and it not dependent on batteries. I have found that products that use a charger are more reliable than those which rely on batteries. For some reason a charger seems to give a product a longer lifespan. This is irrelevant of changing the batteries. Perhaps it has to do with some sort of corrosion or issue with the prongs inside the battery compartment. I also do not notice a bit of difference between the regular cleansing head and the deep pore head. They feel pretty similar and I do not see a difference in the cleansing aspect at all. On another positive note, the cleaning of the head itself is simple and they actually do not recommend doing it more than once a week. Working in healthcare I find this to be a little concerning, however. I feel that any tool that comes in contact with skin should be cleaned with each use. This radically cuts down on the opportunity for bacteria to breed on a wet product. — 1 year, 8 months agoklfnwf | 53 reviews
Not the fix-all, but pretty close!I'll be honest, i was hoping this product would eradicate all acne from my teenage looking skin. The clarisonic didn't quite pull it off, but it did help. I've noticed less acne and a clearer complexion, as far as blotchiness and redness. I've never used the original Clarisonic, but as far as I can tell, the MIA works just as well. It doesn't have the facial zone timing features, but as long as you can count it shouldn't be a big deal. :) Especially considering the cost savings. — 3 years, 3 months agoAmberDB | 188 reviews
The #1 Product for My Skin
I had read a lot of great reviews about the Clarisonic on various blogs and was really wanting to give it a try. I was a little skeptical about whether the Clarisonic was as great as I was told or if all the beauty bloggers felt obligated to give a good review becuase they had received a free product.
I decided to do a little more research from the Clarisonic website and found out t...read morehe following facts
Clarisonic cleanses your skin 6x better than using your hands alone
The company offers a 90 day satisfaction guarantee becuase they know it will make a difference for your skin
The Clarisonic does not spin like similar drug store products do. It oscillates using sonic pulses which means it moves back and forth but not in a circle
Depending on which Clarisonic product you purchase you can receive up to a 2 year warranty incase your device breaks or no longer charges
The Clarisonic is waterproof so you can use it while you shower or bathe. (There have been so many times I've accidentally submerged my product in water so thank goodness for that!)
With all the positive reviews I read and stellar facts from the company I decided to give it a try. After all there was a satisfaction guarantee and I knew I would recieve my money back if I was not happy with the product.
Within the first week of using my Mia I saw an immediate turnaround with my skin and began receiving compliments daily on how beautiful and radiant my skin was. People began to ask me constantly what my secret was for flawless skin and I had to tell them it was my Clarisonic Mia!
The Mia currently retails for $125 as the universal speed and a 1 year warranty. If I were to go back in time I would opt for the Mia 2 which retails for $150, has 2 speeds, a 2 year warranty and a pulsing timer that tells you when to move onto the next portion of your face.
The Mia has made such a difference for my skin and I will never be caught dead without a Clarisonic device in my skin routine ever again. It's as simple as brushing your teeth and reaps higher rewards than any serum or moisturizer will ever give you. — 4 months agolissacole | 9 reviews
Not for MeI've read various reviews on the Clarisonic/Clarisonic Mia that state that your skin may experience a "purge phase" at the beginning of regular use. During this phase, your skin gets ride of deep impurities in the form of blemishes. This phase is meant to last for about 2 weeks. A month and a half of use, and my skin was still "purging". My skin has never been as bad as it was when I was using the Clarisonic. For the price, I expected big things, and I'm sad this didn't work out for me. — 5 months, 1 week agokdevoe814 | 12 reviews
Cleans my face really wellClarisonic Mia cleans my face really well, there is just a problem my skin is too sensitive so I can used it every day cause it fell like it burns, I am sure is not the soap I am using it (murad pomagrade foam soap) cause I used it before and never fell my skin that way, my skin becomes red and a lil sensitive but nothing extreme, it pass in a few few minutes, I recommend used MIA. — 5 months, 2 weeks agoCorinaFA | 71 reviews
Worth the hype!I've been using this for 6 months and love it! I notice a reduction in acne and breakouts when I use my Clarisonic. My skin looks softer and more radiant, and it appears to make my skincare more effective. My skin is very sensitive and it does not hurt when is use it. Plus, I love how it charges, the plug in design is really nifty, it just clicks onto the brush. — 6 months, 3 weeks agomissychrissy185 | 23 reviews
