Clarisonic Mia 2 | First Impressions
Daniel Sandler demonstrating the Clarisonic Mia2
The other week I popped along to a Clarisonic event where we had a talk about the new Clarisonic Mia 2 and also had a mini demonstration on how it is used and how it is different to its predecessor.
If you are not familiar with the Clarisonic it is basically a handheld cleansing brush which sonically massages your skin, it is supposed to improve your skins circulation, even out skin tone, clear away traces of makeup/impurities, clear scars and marks on the face and minimise breakouts (Plus even more).
The first Clarisonic models were the original model, which you can attach a body brush to also and then the Mia - Now there is the Mia 2. The new model features two speeds, It pulses to let you know when to move on to the next area of your face (which is one minute in total) and it comes with a handy travel case.
Have I noticed a difference?
I have been using the Clarisonic now for around two weeks, For just over a week I used it day and night and now I just use it at night as I feel it cleanses off last traces of makeup amazingly. I have noticed that my skin has a much more even complexion and also appears brighter and more glowy, some dark patches which were previously apparent on my skin have been reduced, however I have broken out from using it (Which is extremely normal at first, its sometimes called 'skin purging' as it draws out the impurities from deep within the skin) So i'm waiting for that to clear up at the moment and then i'll see how it performs over a longer amount of time.
Would I recommend it/is it worth the price?
The price is what held me back from purchasing a Clarisonic for SO long. I had always been interested but unsure wether it was worth it. I defiantly think it is worth the money and it is an effective and very handy piece of equiptment. I am always excited to use it at the end of the day, I find it a fun step in my otherwise mundane nightly makeup removal routine.
I know I babbled quite a bit, I could type forever sometimes haha but i'll leave it there for now,
What are your thoughts on the Clarisonic?
