bh’s Anna reviews Clarisonic Mia 2
1. Had you heard of this product before? What were your expectations?
I had read heaps of reviews of the original Clarisonic and the Mia 2 on beautyheaven. Most of the reviews mentioned a ‘purging’ stage so I was expecting (and certainly not looking forward to) that part of the process, but most of the reviews also mentioned it was worth it in the end, so I was looking forward to an improvement in the quality of my skin.
2. What were your first impressions upon using the product?
It was so easy to use! I especially loved that the product would beep to indicate when I should move on to another section of my face. The instructions were super clear – spend 20 seconds using the product on your forehead, another 20 seconds on your nose and chin and 10 seconds each on your cheeks. I was surprised that it only took a minute a day for the product to work its magic. My skin felt surprisingly clean despite not using it for long.
3. After continued use of the product what did you notice about the quality of your skin?
I certainly experienced the purging stage but it wasn’t too bad. I just had a few small blemishes pop up that I wouldn’t usually have. As for the quality of my skin – after a couple of weeks I could really notice the difference. My skin was brighter, smoother and my other skin care products were gliding on and absorbing more effectively.
4. Do you think this product has earned its status as iconic – why/why not?
I absolutely do! In only a minute a day this little gem works so hard at really cleaning your skin. I think you get a much deeper clean than if you just used your fingers to cleanse (which is what I used to do). I am so impressed with this and I will absolutely continue to use it – it’s now a staple in my routine!
