I finally got around to blogging this!
I was given the Clarisonic Mia last christmas after begging for it. OK, maybe begging wasn't the word for it...hhmm....let's see.... a broken-record more like it? I've mentioned it like a gazillion times at every conversation that I can think of at that time.
Oh you know I saw the Clarisonic Mia in David Jones!
Oh remember that Clarisonic Mia I showed you at the shops, they are having some kind of 10% off.
I just heard that so and so got her Clarisonic Mia online and it was held by customs.
I think Clarisonic Mia is a reasonable present.
Oh the Clarisonic Mia comes in pink now!
I eventually shut up once I opened my Christmas present and everyone was relieved.
What is Clarisonic Mia?
"Redefining Skin Care Through Patented Technology Unlike spinning devices, our patented sonic technology works with skin’s natural elasticity, oscillating at a sonic frequency that produces over 300 movements per second. The resulting flexing action created between the outer and inner brushes work to loosen dirt and oil, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming skin to better absorb topical treatments.
Feel the Difference - Smoother, softer, healthier-looking skin - Minimizes appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles - Cleanses so thoroughly, skin care products absorb better - Gentle enough to use 2X daily on all skin types" - from www.clarisonic.com.au
Why do I love it?
- It cleans my face so well, removing all the shizz that I piled on during the day.
- My face absorbs my serums and night creams better
- My face is left smooth and soft after every use
- The brush is so gentle!
- My breakouts are much more manageable to a point that I don't get them anymore unless it's the time of the month.
- Aside from the wonders it does to my skin, it is compact and travel friendly :)
- The one-speed option is so easy and straight-forward. You literally just press the on-button and off you go (for a minute)
- I love that it massages my face as I use it, it's relaxing :)
What do I use it with?
I use it with Philosophy's Purity made simple cleanser which is still my all-time favourite creme cleanser. It's gentle and removes makeup like no other and with Clarisonic it's like match made in heaven!
I find that Clarisonic works better with creamy type of cleanser rather than the foamy (or liquid) types.
How often do I use it?
I use it every night. Initially started with 2x a day for a good 2 weeks then I dropped it to 1xday and only at night time.
What brush did I get?
I got the Sensitive brush head which came in the pack.
I would repurchase the same brush when I replace it as it suits my combination skin type.
Where did I get mine and how much?
Like I said I got this as a present and I am sure my santa got it from David Jones during a sale. DJ retails it from AU$139.00 depending on the colour and I just saw the other day that Mia2 is now available.
You can get it too from the Clarisonic Australian website for cheaper and with free shipping which turns out to be a better deal than if you're considering of buying it from a US online store as shipping cost will be too much. And plus if you buy it overseas then you will need to get an adapter for the power plug.
Do I recommend it?
I know there are similar brushes out there for cheaper price and I tried a few of them thinking I would save by buying the copy and I was deeply disappointed.
Clarisonic is expensive but it is a great investment that's for sure. It is worth every penny and if you're like me who is obsessed with skin care whether the tools or the creams then you will love this as much as I do :) I've been using this for 6 months now and my skin's never been happier!
Hope this post helped you :)
Until the next Skin Care update!
