Product Review: Clarisonic Mia

I've heard incredible things about Clarisonic, I had to see it for myself.  Clarisonic has released 4 different sonic systems, the mia, the classic, the plus and the PRO. The classic and plus feature two brush speeds, the plus includes an additional body mode.  I did my research and found that many users preferred the size of the mia in comparison to the other sonic systems because of how comfortable it felt in hand and how much easier it was to handle. I also agreed to purchase the mia because of how reasonably priced it was in comparison to its competition.

I was lucky enough to come across a sale on QVC in which the Clarisonic mia was up for grabs at $124, or 3 easy payments of $43.00! The coolest part about it was that the Clarisonic mias that were featured on the QVC sale came in the most adorable colors and patterns. I snagged one up in hot pink and it was delivered to me in no time.  It also came with 3 gentle cleansers and 1 replacement brush head.

I love the way it feels against my skin. The Clarisonic massages my face and leaves my skin feeling as soft and as smooth silk.  I have also read that it allows your skin to absorb moisturizers better since its gentle sonic vibrations unblock clogged pores as well as clear away dirt, residue and dead skin cells.  Removing all that gunk from your face gives you an instant refreshed look. Skin looks vibrant and awoken.

From the Clarisonic Website:
Mia is the new, go-anywhere Sonic Skin Cleansing System in a great compact size. The one-button, one-speed Mia fits your active lifestyle for beautiful, glowing skin wherever life’s adventures take you. All the great benefits of the Clarisonic Classic in a new, smaller size. The perfect compact cleansing system for use at home or on the go.

Directions from Clarisonic Instruction Booklet : 
Prior to the first use, charge the Clarisonic for 24 hours. If you wear makeup, remove eye makeup by hand. Wet your skin and the brush head with warm water. Liberally apply cleanser to your skin or to the brush head. Push the power button to turn your Clarisonic on and gently move the brush using a small circular motion, beginning on the forehead, then moving to the nose/chin area and the cheeks at the T-TIMER prompts. Pressing too hard will impede the gentle sonic vibrations of the mia.

The mia uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second, according to the product literature. The mia also comes with a built in timer that is set to 60 seconds, which is plenty of time to remove 6 times more makeup and 2 times more dirt than washing with your hands alone.

The brush head is gentle, and feels soothing and massaging to the skin on the face. It is also the same size as the brush head on the classic. The charger is a pLink charger that magnetically attaches to the handle of the brush. 1 charge can get you up to 20 uses, each at one minute.

The Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing system is a very effective way of cleansing your face.  I would recommend Clarisonic, and would encourage anyone to make the investment. It helps with skin turnover, cell regeneration, and removal of dead skin cells and dirt.  I just recently received my Clarisonic and I am addicted to it, I don't think I can live without this little beauty must-have!

  1. Omg, you got a hot pink one. I bought mine two years ago and at the time all they had was a light pink one so I bought that. I'm a big fan too but I totally forgot to buy a replacement head today when I stopped by Sephora. Grrr.

  2. loving the new redesign, it's colorful :) like putting on summer clothes on your blog.

    I couldnt decide which clarisonic to get, so i got the classic one, though i wonder if i should have gotten this because you can use it on your body. who knows maybe some people use the classic on their bodies i have no clue.

  3. I love the new layout. So pretty!

  4. thats a good deal!
    i love the hot pink!

  5. I also really love my Clarisonic. I have the plus and I like the Mia because it is smaller and feels kind of heavier like it's more solid. I like that. I think the plus is too bulky.

  6. I love it in the hot pink! I wish I would have known about the sale on qvc.

  7. Great lay out its really summery and colourful!
    Thanks for the great review too!

  8. This is right that Prior to the first use, charge the Clarisonic for 24 hours. If you wear makeup, remove eye makeup by hand. Wet your skin and the brush head with warm water.

  9. do you have the "fuchsia" one?

  10. This is correct that Prior to the first utilize, charge the Clarisonic for 24 hours. On the off chance that you wear cosmetics, evacuate eye cosmetics by hand. Wet your skin and the brush head with warm water.
