We’ve all heard about the praised Clarisonic. The beloved skincare brush designed to remove impurities and provide a near-perfect cleansing experience in just 60 seconds. Earlier last week, L’Oreal sent me the Clarisonic Mia 2 to try out for myself and see what all the buzz is about. Is the Clarisonic all that it claims to be? Is it true that it breaks you out like crazy when you first use it? Read on to find out!
The perfect cleanse
The Clarisonic Mia 2 cleanses six times better than your hands alone. I tried out the Mia 2 for the first time after supposedly cleansing my face with my hands. Boy was I surprised to see how much makeup was on the Mia 2 brush – yuck! Pretty disgusting just thinking that I would always assume my face was clean when it really wasn’t. My new routine is to use a wipe to remove my makeup and follow up with the Mia 2.
Mia 2’s sonic motion removes impurities, dirt, and bacteria from your face and from trapped pores. After regular daily use, the Mia 2 improves your skin’s texture, wrinkles, and promotes healthier, younger looking skin. I have only been using it for about a week and I noticed a difference after my first use. As you pat your face dry after using the Mia 2, you’ll feel that your skin is instantly softer.
I love the design on the Mia 2, it features a slim handle, making it easy to hold. To use, you don’t have to put too much pressure on it, just hold Mia 2 close to your face and let it to the rest. You are supposed to use the Mia 2 for 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 on your nose and chin, and 10 seconds on each cheek. No need to count! The Mia 2 beeps whenever you need to switch to a different part – it’s a lot fun to use!
Another thing to love about it, as if you need more reasons to, is that the battery lasts for a very long time. After unpacking it, charge it for approximately 24 hours and you are good to go for weeks! A refreshing gel cleanser came with my Mia 2 package so I’ve been using that one. It’s been working just fine, but I do plan to switch to my regular one once it’s finished.
In time for the holidays
Now, the dreaded question – will it cause you to break out? Yes, but don’t panic! The Clarisonic is working hard to get all that junk out of your pores! So it makes since that you’ll break out. However, it will only last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. Trust me, push through those tough days and you’ll be glad you did. I broke out almost instantly but can already see my blemishes disappearing and it’s only been about six days.
Sure, the Clarisonic is pricey – but you get what you paid for! This product is a must and will save your skin’s life! And, if you start now, your face will be picture-perfect ready for Christmas and New Year’s! What are you waiting for? Treat yourself to an early Christmas present! The Clarisonic Mia 2 (and all other versions) are available online and at select stores.
