My first impressions of the Clarisonic Mia

December 26, 2012

Yesterday I posted about my new morning skin routine (see post here), today I will be posting about my new night skin routine. I was lucky enough to receive a Clarasonic Mia from my parent for Christmas yesterday... I have been wanting one of these for aaages. Sadly the Mia 2 is not yet available in Australia, so the Mia will have to do. This retails for about $150 from Myer or David Jones. This is my first impressions post on the Clarisonic Mia.

So pretty much the Clarisonic is a little like an electric toothbrush for you face. It has brush head that vibrates to deep clean and to gently exfoliate your face. This is supposed to make your skin feel smoother and pores appear smaller. You can get four types of brush heads (normal, sensitive, delicate, and deep pore cleansing) and the one that this comes with is the white head which is the sensitive brush. The brushes are designed to be used for 3-4 months and then replaced.

This pack comes with a Clarisonic Mia, a gentle hydro cleanser, a power charger, and a user guide. You can use pretty much any cleansing products with the Mia, but I do like that it comes with a small tube of the Clarisonic brand cleanser.

The charger is pretty nifty, it magnetically attaches to the base of the handle, so you don't have to plug anything into the Clarisonic. When you first charge this, the Clarisonic will pulse for a good 30min or so, I think this is the period where the battery is too flat for you to actually use the Clarisonic. Once the Clarisonic is fully charged, it will last for around 20 minutes before needing to charge it again. The manual recommends that you only need to use this on your forehead for 20 seconds, each cheek for 10 seconds, and the chin/nose area for 20 seconds... so all up you only need to use this for around a minute. This is waterproof, so you can use this in the shower. Since this can't be used on your eye area, then I use makeup remover to remove my eye makeup before I use the Clarisonic.

After using this one time, I instantly felt that my skin was amazingly smooth, it also removes your foundation thoroughly. I am very impressed with the Clarisonic Mia, it is a really simple way to get amazing skin, and I am happy that I have noticed a difference straight away. I have heard that after a week or so of use, people can start to break out, which is your skin purging the toxins or something. I am hoping that it doesn't happen to me, but if it does, as least I know it will only be temporary.

So far I am very impressed with the Clarisonic Mia, and I am so happy I finally got my hands on one. If you are into skin care, then I would recommend spending the $150 on this product, it will make your skin feel and look amazing, and your foundation look nicer on your skin!

  6. GLad that it's worked for you! I heard its somewhat abrasive too.. hmm.

  7. I bought my Mia last January and love it! It really cleared up my skin- and I can tell when I don't use it for a few days.

  8. Which cleanser are you using with yours? Have you just used the sample one they give you or have you just used a regular cleanser? I don't know what to use if I buy one :(

    1. I have tested out a few. I find any cleanser works, the one that comes with it is just a cleanser that doesn't foam too much. So I have been using cream cleansers mainly, but just make sure you don't use one that is abrasive (like a exfoliant)

  9. Wow, perfect. Fortunately, I found your website!
