A month, or so, ago I received a product I was DYING to try. Ecstatic to be able to review it...I wanted to give it a fair shot, so I planned to use it for a couple of weeks, then write (what I was sure was going to be) a glowing review!
Then, life happened...and little Miss Appendicitis derailed that plan...BUT! the train is back on track!
So, my friends...let me tell you about my lovely little "Mia"...a Clarisonic product.
The "Mia" is touted as Clarisonic's "little sibling"...packing a large punch into a smaller package (and comes in an adorable array of colors!). The brush head is the same size, but the body is smaller and provides just one speed vs. two or three.
What I LOVED about this product, is that it is completely waterproof...use it in the tub, or the shower, or the sauna, or the hot tub (well, okay, that'd be weird, but still, you COULD!!). I found it extremely convenient to be able to cleanse my face right in the shower.
I dunno about you, but I'm a busy lady. My face has long been neglected, mostly because, a multi-step facial cleansing regimen just, frankly, took too much time. However, with the Mia, I was able to wash my face while I was rinsing my hair...talk about multitasking!
My skin issues consist of breakouts, blackheads, oily patches and (ugh) fine lines. At 34, I kinda expected to see a few fine lines, but zits?!! C'mon! I thought those were for teenagers!
I was mostly hoping for my Mia to clear out my blackheads and get rid of my breakouts...and while I have seen an improvement in those areas, I think my order was a bit too tall (or, perhaps, the one speed wasn't "tough enough" for my years old blemishes!!). I have definitely noticed an improvement in my "fine lines" and an overall increase in the smoothness of my skin.
So, while the Clarisonic wasn't quite the miracle I was looking for...I am still in deep like with it! (And, for the record, I haven't been religious about using it day and night. Often times, when it's bedtime, I just want to go to bed...clean face or not.)
Keeps a charge for quite a few uses
Reduction in fine lines
Price (the Mia retails at around $149 online at Clarisonic.com or Sephora.com and also in Sephora retail stores)
Not a noticeably large reduction in blackheads
As you can see, the Pros far outweigh the Cons!
In the end, I am very satisfied with my Mia!
Clarisonic provided me with the "Mia" at no cost for a review. I was not compensated in anyway or paid to provide a "positive" review.
