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.

Exfoliate and cleanse in 60 seconds, but use a gentle hand

I have been using the Clarisonic Mia for several months now and I have to say it works quite nicely, but it can also irritate my sensitive skin. It is important to use a very light touch when using this product on rosacea skin. I ended up buying the most gentle brush head clarisonic sells and I am not entirely sure it made a difference. This model has a "regular" speed setting and a "gentle" setting. I honestly don't see much difference between the two, neither setting is particularly abrasive if you don't push too hard against your face. I follow the instructions and use a circular motion, rubbing it against my skin. There is a timer and you are supposed to spend 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose and chin (because of the rosacea I barely touch my nose and spend most of those 20 seconds on my neck and chin), then 10 seconds on each cheek. The device lets you know when to change areas by pulsing a couple of times. This can be subtle, especially if you are in the shower or distracted in any way, so it is easy to miss. On the whole, I am glad to have this product and recommend it with some reservations.

Great investment

I keep mine in the shower so that I use it regularly. It has really been the best thing I've used (and kept up with using) for my skincare. It feels really great, and ultimately has gotten rid of my acne. For maintenance, I have found very affordable generic replacement heads on Amazon. Overall I think this is a great skincare investment. I did not give it a 5 because I still have dry skin that won't go away on my cheeks. And sometimes I have to use something else to really exfoliate on that skin area.

Clarisonic Mia
Purchased

I purchased this product a few months ago. Although I have not noticed anything amazing happening to my skin, I do come out feeling much cleaner and fresher than before using it.

Great for deep cleansing!

I love my Clarisonic! I only use it every couple of days because my face is prone to break outs if I over-exfoliate. I'm anxious to try other brush types including the body brush!

Clarisonic Mia
Purchased

I've been using my Clarisonic Mia for a little over a week now and love what it has been doing for my skin.

It does a great job of washing off my face makeup - I don't wear foundation so it doesn't have much work to do in that department. I still have some blackheads on my nose, but they are reducing in size which is awesome! Sadly still getting a hormonal pimple or two, hoping that next month it won't be as much of a problem.

I also really like the gel cleanser they include in the set, it foams up nicely and doesn't strip the moisture from my skin.

Hoping for even better results after prolonged use :)

Good for travel
Purchased

I bought this for travel use so I don't have to bring my Clarisonic Plus which I also purchased here at birchbox. I'm in love with Clarisonic including the Opal which I completely adore and it would have been nice if birchbox sold it so I could have earned those points.

Back to the Mia, I like that it is lightweight but preferred the Plus for all my skin needs. I got a pimple on my forehead after first use of the Mia. I've been using the Plus on its lowest setting for 2 weeks now on my face and it's been nothing but fantastic. I think the universal setting is harsh on my skin and will have to give it some time. I may return this and get a Mia 2 instead.

Truly, deeply clean

I wasn't convinced that this little brush, and it's very short running time, would do much good on my oft washed face. I was pleasantly surprised. It does work well for deep cleaning and I've noticed a change in my skins texture over the few weeks I've been using it. Well worth the splurge.

Gets an A from me....keeps my skin soft and clean. Highly recommend. Charge does not last long. That is my only negative.

Effective systems but pricey

I received this product as a gift but was looking forward to trying it for a long time. I use the sensitive brush attachment on my Mia and cleanse with it once per day or every other day, usually in the evening. The product does a great job of cleansing without stripping skin or leaving it irritated. Products such as serums and moisturizers seem to be absorbed into skin more quickly and effectively after using the Clarisonic and after only a few weeks, I noticed a significant difference in the texture of my skin. My complexion is now more even and soft and I plan to keep using this product with the sensitive brush head attachment.
