clarisonic review

I got the Mia in Berry for about 4 months now and finally decided what I think of it.
the good.. This cleans my face until it is squeaky clean. I feel like it does unclog my pores, especially if I wore any heavy makeup during the week. It also gives a nice facial massage.
the bad.. Overusing this becomes too harsh on my skin. By overusing, I mean using it more than 3x a week. When I first got this I used it everyday and I got breakouts. I decided that this 'purging period' lasted too long, so I only used it once a week. Slowly increased it to 2x a week now, which gave me the best results. I didn't particularly like the cleanser it came with also, but thats no biggie.
claims.. to give "reduced appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and improved skin tone" I do notice smaller pores the next morning of using this, but nothing too major. I don't have fine lines or wrinkles so I don't know about that. As for better skintone, I think only time can tell after using this for a little longer.
"should I get one?".. I'm 50/50 on this. Yes, if you have the money to splurge. It is nice to have for those times you crave a facial massage. I do agree that this tool does some serious deep cleansing. If you already have a good exfoliation system, then I'd say no. You can probably live without it. There's a lot of exfoliaters that can substitute for this. My favorite is St. Ives apricot scrub. Hope this was useful for those deciding. For those who have it.. love, like, or hate it?


  1. I love mine and don't think I could live without it now. I really think it depends on what kind of skin you have. Mine is not sensitive at all - I use my clarisonic twice a day! Maybe you should try the extra sensitive brush head?

    1. I don't really have sensitive skin either, so I'm not sure whats up. I'll try that brush head and maybe I'll find out that I actually am sensitive lol. Lucky you get to use urs more often! Its such a treat to use

  2. Love the colour you have here. I really wish I could have gotten this one instead of the lighter pink, which gets dirty quick. I find the sensitive brush a but abrasive and have to control the use for a few times a week. I think I will try the extra sensitive brush head too!


I love reading all of your comments!
