        I was skeptical at first, but the Mia actually works! My face has never felt or looked as good. I have oily skin, white heads and large pores. Everyone has noticed a difference in just one week of use, twice daily.

        Won't hold charge/ poor customer service

              Comments about Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing:

              I was excited to get and use this. I have older skin. Feels and cleans great with the cashmere brush! But,,,,,,,,I found that after about one month it wouldn't hold a charge for 20 uses-- as it promises-- at all. It lessened from 18 the first week to about 12 times the third week and now it is down to about 6-7 after less than 4 months. I called Clarisonic after the third month and found their customer service to be very off-putting. I kindly explained the problem. I had a person who apparently didn't understand my questions about the product. She didn't find the answer and kept asking the same question over and over. Eventually a supervisor jumped in and agreed that I had answered all the questions appropriately He offered to have me send it in to test it. In the meantime, I've just discovered many reviews about the battery problem so I know that I'm not alone. It took 3 weeks without the Clarasonic due to lengthy shipping, etc. ( They said it passed the test of 20 times for a minute each. they only tried it once for 20 times in a row--not over days which may be a big factor.) I tried it again at home. It worked for one week at almost (18) times. But every week thereafter the number has lessened by about 2 times so that after about 6 weeks-- it now lasts 6-8 times before stopping.. I expect this to die soon. My Panasonic electric toothbrush has lasted for years and it has a sealed battery pack similar to the Charisonic's. Have they tried to use their battery system? I wish the engineers would help explain the reason for these problems and find a solution. I was so excited and thrilled by the Clarasonic at first. Now I'm so sad.

                Comments about Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing:

                I bought one for myself since my birthday is in a couple days and the hubby and kids are not the best at reading the hints I drop like a paper that says, "Mom only wants a Clarisonic Mia from ULTA!" So it has been five days of use and I am declaring a miracle! I will be 34 and in five days time my skin looks better than when I was 24! Honest to God!
                I went through some adult acne that was hard to get rid of but also left my skin a little dry and dull. Four pregnancies (and four minions biting your ankles) will do that too! Well I was putting on my lotion this AM and almost did a happy dance in front of the mirror! I have GLOW! My skin is almost perfectly even! I hadn't even put any makeup on and I walked outside to grab some stuff from my Jeep and I didn't hear ANY screams of horror or folks slamming their doors and running inside. Ok, I might be a bit dramatic but come on...I mean...I am even on the last day of my period and I look GLOWING??? And EVEN??? I don't write reviews but I did have to this time! Do yourself a fave and buy one! Ps I am just using Biore charcoal wash and Oil of Olay sensitive and bought the intro model of Mia (men's version because I hate bubble gum colors and wanted just black) No need to go full on fancy here.

                  I tried to use other cheaper brands...total waste of money. The difference is astonishing. It changed the texture of my sin so much after one use. I'm thoroughly amazed.

                        Bought this for my preteen daughter. I have the Mia 2 and wanted to get her started with something now for her skin and went straight to this. It's the perfect gadget to help her get into the skincare routine. I have her use the sensitive brush heads, but I know if needed I can switch the brush and she can have a new level of cleaning that is appropriate for whatever the teen years do to her skin! I swear by clairsonic!

                                I noticed a difference after just one use. I've been using my Mia for about 2 weeks now and wish I bought one sooner! It clears all of the makeup and dead skin cells for better penetration of anti-aging products. My skin is purging so I have a few zits, but I expected this since I have very oily, congested skin, but it is very soft and my makeup goes on smoother. It's super easy to use and great for travel. You need one!

                                    We do not recommend using your Clarisonic device with any scrubs or cleansers that contain exfoliating particles, as your Clarisonic already provides skin exfoliation with its oscillating brush head bristles. Using a scrub with your Clarisonic may be too abrasive and irritating to your skin.

                                    A gentle foaming cleanser with no exfoliating particles is safe to use with your Clarisonic device.

                                    Yes, the Mia 1 is safe for twice daily use.

                                • Q:

                                  I have combo (on the drier side of combo) and sensitive skin that is also acne prone. I am trying out the Mia 1 every other day, just to make sure I don't irritate and over-exfoliate.

                                  Can I still use exfoliating products as part of my skin care regimen if that includes the Mia? Not at the same time, but I am wondering if for example, I can use the Mia in the morning with Purity Made Simple, and a gently exfoliating (but emollient)cleanser at night? Or now that I am using the Mia, should I eliminate ALL scrubs or scub-like masks from my regimen?

                                    Yes, as long as you don't use your Mia to apply any scrub/exfoliant with grit-like particles, you can certainly still include a scrub in your regimen. In fact, for most skin types, exfoliating 2-3 times weekly is recommended to maintain a healthy complexion.

                                    Even for those who use their Clarisonic twice daily, each time they cleanse their skin, they can exfoliate a few times weekly after skin has been cleansed with the Clarisonic.

                                    No, the brush is not supposed to spin or rotate; rather, the bristles oscillate back and forth 10 degrees with 300 movements per second.

                                    A gentle foaming cleanser with no exfoliating particles is safe to use with your Clarisonic device.

                                    The only difference is the color of the unit (Mai Tai is a limited edition color). All other features and accessories are the same. We hope this extra info helps!

                                    All Clarisonic facial cleansing devices can be used on sensitive skin. Clinical studies have even verified that Clarisonic sonic cleansing is gentle enough to use on skin with rosacea, acne and seborrheic dermatitis; however, we advise those with skin care conditions to consult a professional prior to using Clarisonic sonic cleansing.

                                    If you are under the care of a physician to treat your acne (especially if you are using prescription topical or oral acne medication), or if you are experiencing severe acne, such as cystic acne, we recommend consulting your physician prior to use.

                                    For mild to moderate acne, you can certainly use Clarisonic sonic facial cleansing devices. In fact, Clarisonic offers an Acne Clarifying Collection:
                                    http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4560143

                                    The Acne Clarifying Collection includes a Mia 2 equipped with the Acne Brush Head (the plushest, softest brush head that Clarisonic offers), along with the Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser, which is formulated with acne-fighting 2% salicylic acid.

                                    We do recommend avoiding using the Clarisonic if you have any broken skin until it has healed.

                                    Clarisonic cleansing brush heads feature an oscillation movement rather than spinning. The 300+ micro movements per second delivered by Clarisonic's patented technology are the optimum sonic frequency to deliver a micro-massage movement that helps gently massage dirt, oil and make-up from pores. The patented sonic oscillation motion of the Clarisonic ensures that the skin is cleansed 6x better than cleansing with your hands alone. When impurities are removed, skin feels softer and smoother and becomes healthier and more radiant each day. And because skin is so clean, it's better able to absorb moisturizers, creams and serums.

                                    No, Clarisonic facial cleansing devices should not be used on dry skin; skin must be moistened, or the brush head must be dampened. Otherwise, you risk causing irritation to the skin and the device will not have the desired deep cleansing, pore flushing effect.

                                    Clarisonic cleansing devices are beneficial to all skin types including dry skin. The light exfoliation that the Clarisonic provides helps to alleviate flaky dryness, and also helps your treatment products such as serum and moisturizer better penetrate the skin to be more effective!

                                    All Clarisonic sonic cleansing devices provide light exfoliation to help fade discoloration such as post-acne scarring over time.

                                    Clarisonic recommends that you replace your brush head every 3-4 months.
