I purchased the Clarisonic Mia back in October from the US website Skinstore, whilst the Aussie dollar is strong and they had a good deal on. Almost 3 months on - I can confirm I'm a huge fan of it!
I bought a bunch of washclothes about a year ago & like to use a fresh one nightly in the shower to help remove all traces of make up - particularly eye products. My skin is oily combination & does breakout with products my skin doesn't like, but normally it's pretty much blemish free. Using the washcloth leaves my face feeling super clean, smooth & slightly exfoliated - more so when using a face scrub.
So to say I was dubious about the claims & raves of the Clarisonic was an understatement. But then I read these statements in particular and I was suckered in to getting my mitts on one asap!
- Leaves skin feeling and looking younger and smoother.
- Increases product absorption.
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Helps reduce oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes.
- Helps reduce the appearance of visible pores.
I can confirm, 3 months on, the mia has done all of the above. I don't overuse it - mostly every second night, but I still also use a clean face wash nightly. But there's no comparison - the Clarisonic wins hands down. My skin feels SUPER clean after use along with exceptionally smooth (more so than the washcloth - if you've tried it - you'll know what I mean!)
I heartily endorse it. I didn't buy it from an Australian store, as I still believe it's over priced - especially when you can get it, including international delivery, so much cheaper via online overseas sites.
If you want to improve your facial skin, do your research online, save if you have to, and BUY one asap!
It is well worth the hype - which makes a nice change when it comes to the beauty world ;)
