Two words. MIXED FEELINGS.
Before buying my Clarisonic I had looked up so many reviews, watched tutorials on Youtube, and tried my best to decide if this was worth the $150 I spent. All of the research I did said “yes”. The lady at the counter where I bought it even said “Oh you’re gonna just love it; it even gets rid of those pesky little milia seeds!” Now, bear in mind that my few little milia seeds aren’t even that noticeable, but when she said that I basically threw my money at her. I even got a deal since I bought one of the last Christmas package sets they had – it came with a few extra goodies for free. I was sooo excited to try it, and thought I was hot stuff the first few times I used it, but, as time went buy, I became a little discouraged. Here’s why.
This is my Mia 2 (Don’t mind how orange it looks; I just washed my face)
It certainly is pretty, and very easy to use. But here’s where it gets a little fuzzy. Many of the reviews I read said that the Clarisonic was a miracle, that it cleared up all of their skin problems, blah, blah, blah. For me however, the Mia 2 did not eliminate my problems. It didn’t even remove my milia seeds, even after five months of using it! Even after using for that long, I still struggle with blackheads around my T-zone, and I still get pimples regularly every few weeks.
The thing is – this device cleans your skin like nobodies business. I know, I know, that sounds completely contradictory to what I just stated above, but it really does. I would choose this any day over bare hands or a washcloth. I firmly believe that it is much healthier for your skin if you use a device like this. So now onto the tricky part: Do I recommend this product to you guys?
I’m going to go with a YES simply because of two reasons.
1. It really does clean your skin phenomenally, and there are many different brush heads to suit many different skin types. Delicate, super-sensitive skin even? They have a brush head for that.
2. If you buy a holiday package like I did, you’ll get a lot of extra goodies like this.

Granted, the cleanser isn’t anything special, but it works nevertheless.
So all in all, I think this product does what it’s supposed to do, even if it didn’t “magically” transform my skin. What do you guys think? Any of you have a Clarisonic, and if so, do you like it?
