Comments about Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System:

I have been using the mia for about 10 weeks now. I got the mia for my birthday in June. Everyone talked about the " purging stage ". I definitely got the purging stage..... For ten weeks! I am very frustrated because I few to no pimple before the mia. I wish I had never used it. It messed up my skin and who knows how long to will take to clear up again. One positive thing I have to say is that my skin ( that didn't have acne on it ) looked good and my face felt really clean.

    Comments about Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System:

    I was skeptical about how well this would work for me. I have been using the Mia for a week and I see a difference in the clarity of my face. I have always had uneven skin tone and acne. It has helped even out my skin tone. I have had a few small break outs since my skin is adjusting to using the device. I only use the Mia at night. I have been using it with Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser. I would recommend it to anyone.

        Comments about Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System:

        I bought this product because it was on sale. I personally wouldn't recommend anyone paying the original price. It does a good job cleaning my face and I have to admit that after using it my face feels smooth. However, if you're buying it for any other reason such as to prevent acne...I'd say run away it's not worth the money. You'll still get pimples every now and then even while using this product.

        Comments about Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System:

        Before I made the $99 investment for this product, I did my research. The majority of the reviews/comments regarding this product were positive, with the occasional complaint. I knew I wanted to try this product, but was a little skeptical due to my skin type: oily skin with mild acne. However, I bought it, and within the first week, I broke out something terrible: on my chin, forehead, and cheeks(where I never break out). I knew that there would most likely be a "purging" phase, so I wasn't that surprised when I broke out; the breakouts lasted 2-3 days, tops. I am now in my third week of use, and my skin looks 5x better, and I'm still within my first month of use! I get at least one new small breakout every time I use it, but by the 2nd or 3rd day, it's gone. The breakouts on my cheeks are virtually nonexistent now; I have the most, which still isn't a lot, breakouts on my chin, just because that's always been my biggest problem area with acne. Other than that, I'm extremely excited to see how my skin looks in 3 more weeks and beyond!

        The best thing, by far, about this product is the brush head. I love the way it oscillates, going back and forth instead of all the way around like some of the other facial cleansers that get compared to the Clarisonic. Also, the middle part of the brush that does the actual moving, can be popped out and used around had-to-reach areas, such as your nose.

        The only problem I have with the Calrisonic is that it can be difficult to clean. After I use mine(I use it twice a day, everyday), I twist off the brush head and try to dry it (not the bristles, the back plastic part)which can be challenging. I then try to dry the inside of the Clariconic where the head clicks into place, which is also not that easy. Those things are more of an annoying chore than actually difficult to do. One other thing that's just a personal flaw is the Mia does not have a built-in timer like all of the other models, so when I go to wash my face for the recommended minute, I have to use the timer on my phone, which was hard at first, but I've gotten used to it.

        Altogether, this is one of the better high priced investments I've ever made. I can't speak for every skin type, but for people with oily skin who are looking to buy this product, I highly recommend it.

        **Side-note: I used the cleanser that came with the Clarisonic when I got it, the Refreshing Gel Cleanser, I believe. When I ran out of that, I was contemplating which cleanser to use next, the Clarisonic Acne Clarifying Cleanser or the Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser. I ended up buying the Philosophy cleanser, and I do not regret it.**

              Comments about Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System:

              One of my friends recommended the products by Ulta. I had spent so much time buying different things that just did not seem to work for my skin. The Clarisonic Mia is a very good buy. It was not cheap; however, I think it is worth the purchase. Charging the battery was very easy and it last a few days after charged. I use it with the Dermicalogica products.

                    The last time I got a facial, my esthetician told me about this product. She said, "My face doesn't feel clean unless I use it." I was curious so I went out and bought the basic version. So glad I did. I love this thing! It's quite true, once you have used it, your face just doesn't feel clean if you don't. It makes your skin feel incredibly soft. My skin even seems younger and healthier. I HIGHLY recommend this product. You will not be disappointed.I promise.

                        The Mia and Mia 2 are approximately 6" in length and great for travel. The Aria is 6.5" in length and a bit slimmer than Mia and Mia 2. The PLUS is 7.5" in length and the largest of the Clarisonic facial cleansing devices.

                        A:

                        The difference is in the clinical proof that validates the efficacy of Clarisonic cleansing systems:

                        30X More age-accelerating pollutants removed
                        6X Better cleansing than hands alone
                        61% Greater absorption of Vitamin C after use
                        2X Daily use is proven safe and gentle

                        This product features a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.

                        A:

                        To keep your Clarisonic Cleansing Brush in optimum condition, care for it as follows:

                        Do not use abrasive cleaners or chemicals to clean any part of the cleansing brush.
                        Do not put any part of the cleansing brush in a dishwasher.

                        Handle: Once a week, remove the brush head and wash the handle using warm soapy water to remove any residue buildup. The handle is sealed and fully waterproof. Never attempt to open the handle for any reason.

                        Brush Heads: Brush heads need to be replaced every three months because the bristles become fatigued and less effective over time. To dry the brush after use, rub the brush head against a towel for 5–10 seconds while it is powered on, or simply replace the brush head cap and let it air dry between uses. Once a week, remove the brush head from the handle and rinse with warm soapy water to remove any residue.

                        A:

                        Clarisonic cleansing devices are clinically proven to clean skin six times more thoroughly than manual cleansing with hands alone. Clarisonic cleansing devices are also clinically proven to remove thirty times more age-accelerating pollutants from the skin to maintain skin's health and clarity.

                        In consumer studies, 94% of users reported softer skin, and 90% of users reported more radiant, glowing skin. We encourage you to read the product reviews written by ULTA guests like you. Currently, this product is rated 4.6 out of 5 stars!

                        Yes, though this system includes Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser, you can use your Clarisonic brush with a non-Clarisonic facial cleanser if you desire. Do not use it with physical exfoliants (scrubs), as this may cause irritation from over-exfoliation.
