Clarisonic Mia Review

I’ve had the Clarisonic Mia since early January this year so I feel now I can give my  true review of it.

So how did the ‘big, electric toothbrush for your face’ work for me? Amazingly well.

What was my skin like prior to using the Clarisonic? Last November my skin was in the throes of acne breakout. I started taking medication for it and by Feburary it had improved but I still had patches of active spots as well as deep, red angry marks from now dead spots. In short, I was very displeased with my skin.

How did I use it? For the first month or so I used it twice a day, morning and night. The cleanser I used in the beginning was a No7 one that I already had. It was okay but not fantastic so after that first month I changed to the Purity cleanser by Philosophy and that's when I felt the real benefits of the Clarisonic. The red acne scarring began to fade, my lovely 'ruddy-toned' Irish cheeks became less noticeable,  new breakouts were rare, my overall skintone evened out and my complexion looked brighter.

My thoughts now. I really feel that the Clarisonic played a huge role  in reverting my skin back to the way it was prior to my sudden onset of acne.  My skin is in the best condition it ever has been. It is soft, supple and hydrated. I now use the Clarisonic only at night, after removing my make-up and I feel that is sufficient use of it for me currently. I use it every day that I've worn make-up (generally 6 out of 7 days) but if it has been a make-up free day, I forgo using the Clarisonic and just use my morning cleanser at night. 

Final Words. If your skin is already in great condition, I don't think you need to shell out the €150 odd euro for it. However, if you have problematic skin and have tried numerous different treatments/products and think the Clarisonic will work for you, it is definitely worth the money. It's not going to perform magic overnight but you should see positive progress within a month. Remember though, skin takes time to heal so try to be patient with it and avoid been overly harsh.

I will have a full skincare post up shortly, so watch out for that!
