Review: Clarisonic Mia


This is probably the one of the few products I've purchased and was immediately impressed with.  I got it for myself as a late Christmas present, so I've been using it for about 5 months now.  And my skin has never looked better.  I've always been meticulous about my skin.  I had the "required" acne prone skin in jr high and high school (mostly jr high) and then occasional breakouts throughout my 20s and 30s.  When I hit 40, I noticed the texture started changing.  I've always had oily skin, and even now, I have to use blotting papers a couple of times a day.  But I noticed lines that seemed to pop up overnight.  And my skin just looked dull.  I've always used a cleanser and a washcloth to wash my face.  I had been eyeing the Clarisonic Mia for about a year, but just didn't want to spend the money on it ($149).  Finally, in a moment of weakness (and 4 easy pays on QVC) I splurged.  And boy am I glad I did.  My skin feels so "clean".  I take my make up off with a cosmetic wipe (I buy the cheap ones at Big Lots for $2!) and then use the Clarisonic to clean off anything I missed.  It also exfoliates, which is a time saver (and no need for the gritty apricot scrubs lol).  It runs off a rechargeable battery, for about 2 mins, I charge mine about every 20 days.  It comes in a variety of colors, white, yellow, lavender, pink (my choice) and limited time colors also.  It's definitely one of the best purchases I've made.  Except for my lip glosses ;-)
