Clarisonic vs Washcloth

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 ;)


  1. wow, I just had a look at the website and it's a great deal!

    Do you know whether the classic clarisonic is worth getting over the Mia?

  2. The clarisonic original is larger / bulkier but has different speed settings. Here's a comparison chart of the numerous ones:
    I liked the fact the mia has a magnetic charger & universal power plug (still need voltage converter for it)and I'd read better reviews for the mia than for the classic. I already exfoliate my body, so really only wanted the mia to concentrate on my face :)
    I already have nice enough skin - I like the anti aging spiel in particular ha ha!

  3. I haven't been using mine long enough to review it yet - just a few weeks - but I can see and feel a huge difference already. My pores are smaller in appearance, my skin looks and feels more smooth and even. I haven't noticed any reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines yet (fingers crossed!).

    Noodle Arms has just started using it too - I bought some of the delicate heads for her. She has a lot of small clusters of acne around her t-zone, and in the few days she has been using the Mia these have definitely reduced, as has the general redness around the areas.

    I'll use it for another month or so before I review it, but so far I'm well and truly sold!

  4. I love my Clarisonic. It's the best thing I've ever bought for my skin :D

  5. Definitely the best investment I've made for skincare. Loving my Clarisonic Mia. Like you, I've seen vast improvements on my skin since using it and I too use it every 2-3 days. :)

  6. Everyone is raving about this, but I still haven't caved. Your post may be my breaking point!

    Will now be scouting around for a good deal on the Clarisonic!

    I love your blog btw! So clean and pretty :)
