Clarisonic Mia 1 Cleansing Brush

If you'’re not already a Clarisonic convert, you’'re missing out. Skeptical? Consider this: Using a sonic frequency to oscillate back and forth at a rate of more than 300 movements per second, the brush removes up to two times as much dirt and oil and up to six times as much makeup as cleansing with your hands. You’ll notice clearer skin and smaller-looking pores after just a few weeks. While we love the original model, the pint-size Mia is a welcome addition, with its straightforward single button, single speed functionality. Plus, the smaller size means it’s ultra portable and perfect for travel.

This brush is way to expensive for what it is worth. Something is going on here because every person in real life that I talked to didn't like this brush but all reviews say it is great. I don't get it. I even watched youtube videos to make sure I was using it right! At first I didn't notice it really doing anything to my skin but then after about 2 months of daily use my skin turned from normally looking great to always being red and irritated. I now cannot leave the house without face makeup on and I used to rarely wear any face makeup or foundation. I kept using it in hopes it would be better because they claim it gets worse before it gets better... no. I have stopped using this completely. I thought this would be a good way to exfoliate but I wish I would have stuck to exfoliating cleansers. I would say get something with salicylic acid in it for an exfoliator and avoid this, it really doesn't do anything but make your skin red. It claims that it draws dirt and oil out of your skin but to me this doesn't even make sense, if it is "drawing dirt and oil out" couldn't it also be pushing it in? Its not a suction cup! Avoid, save $100, and get something you know that you will like and that works.

not worth the money!

i bought the mia over two years ago expecting it to be what it was advertised to be: which was a thorough cleaning device to help exfoliate pores & deep clean the skin. after many uses, i have never noticed a positive result from using the clarisonic. i bought this with the intention of ridding my face of a few blackheads & problem areas & was pretty disappointed after a few uses that it did not deliver its promise. i would discourage anyone from buying this product that is expecting any drastic results. it's too expensive & not guaranteed to deliver any positive results.

Didn't work for me

I used this clarisonic for almost a year and if anything my skin got worse. I honestly don't think it's worth it if you have bad acne. At first I thought it was just getting worse before it got better but then it never got better sooo...

Loved it at first...
Purchased

I used my Clarisonic Skin Cleaner everyday as soon as it was charged when I received it. I replaced the brush after a month or so…the brush, however, no matter how I stored it would get a moldy smell to it. i would wash the brush with cleanser and it still would smell bad.. not sure why but not happy with this at all since brushes are expensive to replace.

Stay away if you have Rosacea

I was so looking forward to my Clairsonic. My face felt super soft and clean immediately after using. However the following day I broke out more than ever. I then read those with rosacea should stay away. I tried again a week later using no pressure - same problem. It's a great tool, but I thought it was supposed to stop breakouts, not cause them!

Overblown expectations?
Purchased

Have been using for two weeks and not noticing anything extraordinary about this device. I haven't had a breakout in probably 10 years and this gave me multiple zits...so maybe it's working or maybe I should just leave my skin alone. You decide.

Didn't make skin softer than a regular exfoliation would either.

Did give me noticeably broken capillaries around my nose, so I'm going to return--realizing it's likely too harsh for my skin.

If you have skin issues and need a deeper cleansing daily, then perhaps this tool will get you closer to that goal. However, for those of us with normal skin, I just really don't see the point.

not worth it

Mine broke within a year. Seems like something so expensive should last longer. I didn't notice any changes in my skin either.

Use with caution
Purchased

I bought this in a moment of desperation when my super duper oily skin was going through an unusually bad flare-up of cystic acne. I get this monthly--thanks hormones! I thought maybe I wasn't exfoliating enough, so I bought the Mia to help cleanse my skin and get the gunk out of my pores. I had heard of the dreaded Clarisonic "PURGE" phase, and hoped no such thing would happen. It seems that the Clarisonic merely broke me out, and never improved. When I stopped use, the severe blemishes healed up pretty quickly. Although touted as a helpful tool for preventing acne, I do not recommend this tool for those with sensitive and blemish prone skin.

It's been about 5 days since using my Mia and I may try to use it again, and monitor my results. Of course, no one wants to give themselves acne, so buy with caution and know that it might not help you.

Expensive

It's really expensive for just that little something extra. I did enjoy it, but once this one goes out I don't know if I will get it again. I didn't notice a huge difference.
