I know the saying goes "Diamonds are a girls best friend" but I now feel that Mia Clarisonic is clearly a girls new best friend! I'll explain why; In case you’re not yet familiar with this skin cleansing tool, the Clarisonic uses sonic technology which creates 300 movements per second for the brush head to provide a facial cleansing experience that nothing else on the consumer market can even compare to in my opinion.
In just a single use after a long day of wearing a full face of makeup, with Mia’s 60 second cycle I was clean as a whistle. My skin was GLOWING (not even slightly red!), cleansed better than ever before, and had a smoothness to it closely resembling one of my rare facial sessions. It was so gentle and easy to use too! All I did was remove my eye makeup first with my remover by hand, and lightly moisten my face and the Mia’s brush head with tap water. Then, I applied a nickel-sized amount of my regular facial cleanser and went to work. I turned the Mia on, and cleansed each area of my face using small circular motions in sections at short intervals. (forehead: 20 sec.,cheeks: 10 sec. each, nose/chin: 20 sec.) Mia will automatically turn off after one minute has elapsed, and you are finished! In case you were wondering, the Mia will give 20 uses on one full charge.
I noticed right away the difference in my skin (and so did my husband). It made my face a better canvas for my foundation and I noticed my face lotions absorbed directly into my skin rather than just sitting on all the dead skin cells that my normal routine used to leave behind.
To sum it up: The Mia Clarisonic is by far the MOST important beauty product I own!
Anyway, if you've heard alot of hype and didn't want to lay down the cash I am here to say I felt the same way and I wish I would have purchased this years ago when it first came out...and I'm pretty sure my face does too!
The Mia costs $149 at Sephora.com, ULTA.com, and SkinCareRx.com. All of these sites offer 20% off discounts every now and then, so don't pay full price for it. Wait for a sale! I got mine at a makeup show earlier this year and it was the best purchase I made that day hands down!!
I have a yellow one but I recently found a cute limited addition one in leopard print, Click here to buy it from Sephora.
Let me know what you think! And if you own one I definitely want to hear from you!
