Clarisonic Mia2 Tutorial & Review

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Last month Clarisonic launched its online store in Canada and asked me to become a Canadian Launch Ambassador. I was able to try the Clarisonic Mia2 device and give one away to a reader as well!

As much as I love beauty and makeup, it's not often that I change my skincare routine. Why try to fix something that's not broken, right? For years I've been using similar cleansers, shampoos, sunscreen and moisturizer. Of course as I get older, I try new products and make additions to my staple morning and night-time routine (thank you anti-aging creams and eye serums).

Enter the Clarisonic Mia2. It is a skincare cleansing system where the brush works 6x better than your hands, reducing the size of your pores and blemishes. It is also said that you should start to feel and see an improvement in your skin just after two weeks.

Coming with a handy container, the Clarisonic Mia2 is travel-friendly with a long-lasting battery life. While you must charge it for at least 24 hours the first time, after that it's good for a few days until you have to charge it again. The plug charger is magnetic and latches on to the device, making it easy for you to rest it on a counter-top throughout the day.

The Mia2 brush has a 60-second timer for each time you use it. As you cleanse your face with the device it indicates when to switch to another section of your face (overall it covers your t-zone area and cheeks). It has two speeds, one that is lighter and gentle (I prefer this), and the second speed makes the bristles work harder and faster. It's highly recommended that you change the brush every three months as it may start to get significantly dirtier and wouldn't work as well. The kit also comes with a Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser, which is a thick-consistency but dewy as you apply it all over your face right before using the device.

I had my doubts and thought maybe the bristles would be too tough on my sensitive skin, but boy was I wrong. Everytime I use the Mia2, I can feel my skin getting softer and smoother instantly and often don't have to wear foundation or tinted moisturizer the next day!

My main skin concern is that I have redness in certain areas like my cheekbones and chin. I also get pimples every now and then, but the Clarisonic Mia2 prevents all that from happening. I've been using it for a month now, and noticed that my cheeks feel less bumpy and softer and redness has also reduced; it's still there, especially if I don't sleep well, but not as apparent anymore.

As much as I love to use the Clarisonic Mia2 brush, I'm not a big fan of the gel cleanser. My skin is already quite dry and I feel like the gel is meant to work better for oily skin, so I prefer to use my own cleanser.

Overall, I highly recommend the Clarisonic Mia2. Valued at $175 CAD, it's great addition to your skincare routine and makes a big difference once you start using it more frequently. I made a quick demo video showing you how to use the Clarisonic Mia2. Hope you like it!
