New Beauty Gadget: Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

I've been dreaming about the Clarisonic cleaning systems for quite some time.  I did a cartwheel when I received the Clarisonic Mia 2 to review!  Regular washing was not leaving my face feeling clean.  My face has dry patches and my pores have gotten out of control!  I knew I needed something more! 
  • Removes makeup 6X better than manual cleansing
  • Leaves skin feeling and looking smoother
  • Removes impurities that keep creams and serums from working their best
  • Gentle enough to use twice a day
  • Reduces oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes
  • Minimizes the appearance of visible pores
Included in the box is a Mia 2 Cleaning system, charger, 1oz. refreshing gel cleanser, and travel case.
First thought that comes to mind about putting a brush on your face is that it's going to be rough.  Not with the Clarisonic Mia 2!  It felt more like a massage on my face.  Very gentle and relaxing (tickles my nose).  I have been conservative in my use of the Clarisonic Mia 2, using it every few days.  It's gentle enough to use daily. 

The Clarisonic Mia 2 has two speed settings.  I have been using it on low.  I love Clarisonic Mia 2 T-Timer!  The T-Timer is set at one minute and gives you a pulse when it's time to move to the next area of your face for even cleaning.  Use on forehead (20 seconds), nose/chin (20 seconds), and both cheeks (10 seconds each).  Clarisonic recommends washing brush head with soap and water and replace the brush every three months.  Replacement brushes start at $25. 
I used the Clarisonic refreshing gel a few times when using the Clarisonic Mia 2.  This is my first time using a gel cleanser.  Since it is a gel, I think it penetrates into the skin for a better cleanse.  The good thing about he Clarisonic Mia 2 is that you can use whichever cleanser you choose because you are still getting your face cleaner than using cleanser alone. 

My final thoughts on the Clarisonic Mia 2:
I don't know why I did not have one sooner!  My face feels cleaner than ever!  Since starting, I rarely notice any dry spots on my face.  I think using the Clarisonic Mia 2 has made my moisturizer  work better because my pores are not clogged up.  The 60 second T-Timer is one of my favorite features on the Clarisonic Mia 2. I feel like I am getting my skin evenly clean and turns off when the time is up!

I totally recommend the Clarisonic Mia 2.  This is a must if you deal with acne, dry patches, clogged pores and oily skin! The price of the cleaning system will make you think twice but it's for your face.  Add it to your birthday or Christmas wish list.  Clarisonic cleaning systems come with a two year warranty.  If you are thinking of purchasing one of those "other" facial cleaning systems, don't waste your money.  I have tried one and it felt like I took a hair brush to my face.  Unless you have a tough face I wouldn't go that route.

*I received a Clarisonic Mia 2 for review purposes.  Thoughts and opinions are my own. 


  1. I've been needing a brush like this. I may have to cop it ASAP.

  2. I have a Clarisonic but ask me how many times I get to use it lol this is like the luxury of time to sit and unwind facial cleanser I need to get back on my skin routine using this little gem.

  3. My mom told me about the Clarisonic a few months ago I hadn't heard of it. She loves it. I should probably start taking better care of my skin.

  4. I have a Clarisonic Mia! I got it for Valentine's day back in 2011? Anywho! I LOVED it before, but then my brush head got old and I really never got around to getting a new one. I could still use it from time to time bc it makes my face feel really clean and hydrated. I just use it with whichever cleanser I want to use lol

  5. I have a Clairsonic and absolutely love it!! It does a fantastic job of thoroughly cleansing your face and allowing your moisturizer to sink right in, my dry patches are gone and in my opinion it helps with my oiliness.

  6. When I saw Style an Beauty Dr's review I got this during Sephora'a sale and LOVE IT! I can totally see the difference in the way my skin feels and responds to creams and makeup. I try to use it at least 3 times a week during my shower. ENJOY

  7. Great review. I love my Clarisonic!!! I'm actually selling on now in an attempt to de-clutter my beauty closet!

  8. Love this review! I have been wanting one but wasn't sure it was worth it! thanks! xo

  9. I really need to get me one. I've heard so many great things about it!

  10. I really want to try one of these!!! Great review!
