Ever since I started watching YouTube beauty gurus however long ago, I’ve seen many of them use the Clarisonic Mia 1 and 2. These beauty gurus pretty much did a great job convincing me that I needed one. I mean come on, the box itself says it cleanses 6x better than hands alone. UH YES I NEED THAT. But, that hefty price tag of $169 was what kept me away from purchasing one.
Around Mother’s Day time, the Clarisonic website had a promotion where if you bought their new foundation brush attachment, you’d get $40 off any brush of your choice. I did some calculating and even with the $35 foundation brush attachment, it was still cheaper than the Clarisonic alone. After some long thinking, I finally did it. I put in my credit card information, pressed submit order, and a week later… BAAM it was at my front door. (it was like Christmas day!! thanks mailman!)
The Mia 2 retails for $169.00. It is said to be have 2 speed facial sonic cleansing (delicate and universal). It comes with a sensitive brush head, trial size cleanser, travel case, and a 2 year warranty. It has a 1 minute pulsing T-Timer but to be honest, sometimes even after the 1 minute timer, I turn it back on cause my face don’t feel clean yet!
I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and this is what I thought about the Clarisonic Mia 2:
Pros: My face does feels a lot cleaner than it used to be. To be honest, I thought the QVC and beauty guru people were exaggerating to make me want to buy it (and yes it worked..unfortunately..haha!) but my face does feel a lot softer! I did see the pores on my face shrink a little bit but not completely. When I apply makeup such as foundation, it seemed to go on a lot smoother. Even without makeup, my face looks a lot clearer and smoother…like a baby’s butt!
Cons: Like an electric tooth brush, you have to replace the brush head every 3 months. Now, these clarisonic brush heads are not cheap. They retail for about $27 each and $44 for pack of two. I read a lot of reviews where people love their Clarisonic but some have stopped using it because they didn’t want to buy the expensive brush head (totally understandable). Heh good thing I have a bunch of Ulta reward points saved up but its still an investment to think about.
Conclusion: I’ve only been using speed 1, which is “delicate” because someone recommended that as a new user, you should start with the lower speed. Maybe as I start using the “universal” speed, my skin will improve even more. Hmm..but, we’ll see. I’ll keep ya’ll updated. 🙂 Although it made my skin feel smoother, I don’t know if my skin feels 6x cleaner like it claims on the box…maybe 1x? 2x? I don’t think it’s necessary to have this device to achieve nice, clean skin. Pero like, I like it. I’m glad I finally made this purchase! YAY SKINCARE!
