      Comments about Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing:

      Adding gel cleansers work better than cream cleansers. Start at the forehead and work way down to neck. Charging it is great. It has a built in charger that hovering device over the charger is perfect. This avoids plugging it in and zero danger to use when wet.

      Comments about Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing:

      I just recently purchased this maybe a week ago or less and I can honestly say that I am in LOVE with this product! But I am even MORE In love with my skin! I separately bought the radiant brush to go on it and it works like a dream. The clarisonic mia 1 as well as the brush I purchased are most definitely worth the money. I do not regret buying at all!

        Comments about Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing:

        Wow! I have wanted to try this, for a long time, but I thought it was way too expensive. I bought instead, a small, much less expensive one. I cannot believe what a difference there is! My very first time with the MIA, my skin was so much smoother and softer. I have been using it about a week and I am truly blown away. It is absolutely worth every penny. I have congestive acne, and I am also getting older, so a few wrinkles too. This works for both, my pores are clearer and the fine lines are not so pronounced. Great, great product! BUY ONE! You wont regret it!

                  A:

                  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.

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.

                  Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser performs wonderfully with all Clarisonic facial cleansing devices. Do not use a scrub with your Clarisonic, as this could cause over-exfoliation and irritation.

                  A:

                  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.

                I have sensitive skin and I am going through my teens, so I was wondering if i should get a Mia 2 instead of the Mia 1.

                  This system includes Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser, which is ideal to use with your Clarisonic device. Any non-scrub type cleanser (from any brand!) works well with Clarisonic cleansing devices.
