This product is completely changing my skin (and my life)!!! I started using the Clarisonic Mia2 about a month ago and I cannot even believe the difference in my skin. I have posted a picture to show the difference it made for my skin in just 2 weeks. I have been struggling with bad acne for so long and have already done 3 courses of Accutane (which worked for a couple years, but then my acne returned). I have been desperate to find some type of solution. I have a prescription for Retin-A, which I have had a love hate relationship with. When I used the Retin-A, I felt like I could never exfoliate the right amount. Not exfoliating well enough meant that my skin was dry and flaky and my makeup looked horrible. Too much exfoliating with scrubs made my skin irritated and oily and caused more breakouts.The Clarisonic is the perfect product to exfoliate just the right amount and is still gentle on my skin. I alternate between the sensitive and the delicate brush head. I sometimes find that the sensitive brush is too rough when my skin is more sensitive from using the Retin-A. I find that I can use the sensitive one once a day or every other day, but I can use the delicate brush head twice a day if needed. I only use it in the morning if I have dry flaky patches that need exfoliating.I have been experimenting using with different cleansers with the Clarisonic. My favourites to use are gentle foaming cleansers (Cereve Foaming Facial Cleanser, La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser and Paula's Choice Pore Normalizing). I am also trying out the Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Soap, which is growing on me. I foams nicely and I feel like it protects my skin a bit when using the Clarisonic.Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who struggles with combination, dry, dull and acne prone skin like me. If you have sensitive skin, invest in the delicate brush head right from the start. I know this system is a bit pricy, but I feel like it is worth it to have clearer skin.

Best Skin care machine since slice bread. The first time you use it, you can tell a difference in your skin. Your skin gets cleaner then using a wash cloth or your hands. The Clarisonic gets into the pores to clean them out. I would start off with the sensitive brush head instead of the deep pore brush. Can be alittle harsh. Try it you will love it...

At first it was a great product. It really cleaned my skin. But after a few days I broke out all over. I never break out, except for a few stray small pimples at certain times. This product made me have terrible red pimples all over. Under my eyes, on my temples, forehead, cystic pimples on my chin, on my nose, cheeks, etc. It was horribly embarrassing. I heard about this "purge process" where you break out at first and I stuck with it but my breakout just got worse and worse. I stopped using it a few days ago and my breakouts are going away but the cystic bumps are still there no matter what I do. It also made my skin red, and even after some time of not using it, the redness remains. It really damaged my skin, and self-esteem. Do not buy it. If I could give this 0 lipsticks, I would.

First my all important background and qualifications to speak about this product. I've used prescription retin-a products, over the counter retinol creams, expensive scrubs, pricey masks, spa treatments, alpha hydroxy lotions, beta hydroxy lotions and more. Unlike many of those products, the Mia2 made a difference in my skin's appearance after just one use. It is just that good. My pores, which are still visible, look smaller. Small discolorations are just that. Small. The skin just looks smoother and better. It's almost at the point that I think I can go without foundation, but I love my foundation too much to give it up just yet. My good friend recommended it to me after we started talking skin care. We both have very similar skin types. I researched this and the Olay product that's similar, but since I know my friend and her skin, I decided to splurge on the Clarisonic instead of the Olay version. This is money well spent. There are a lot of knockoffs around, so please be sure to buy it from an authorized retailer. Amazon.com is NOT an authorized retailer for this product. Some of the people selling the so called Clarisonic products on that site are peddling knock offs that aren't the same at all. Sephora, QVC, Nordstrom are all authorized retailers. I'd get it from one of those places. If you go to the Clarisonic.com site it tells you all the retailers that sell Clarisonic. Sephora, QVC and Nordstrom aren't the only stores from which you can purchase this. I don't remove my makeup with this. I remove the makeup using a makeup removing cleanser. Then I use the Mia2 to get at whatever I couldn't remove. I don't use any fancy cleansers with the Mia2. I've used everything from Neutrogena to Josie Maran's cleansing oil. Just wet your face, wet the brush, put the cleanser on and get to work. I clean my brush with some hand soap after each use. Periodically I dip it in some hydrogen peroxide to prevent any nasty smells. I let the brush air dry. I don't use the brush daily. I find the brushes are gentle. It doesn't hurt at all. You hardly feel the brush moving on your skin. It's only mildly noisy. It's far less noisy than a blowdryer. Makeup goes on so much better on good skin. It's easier to hide tone imperfections than it is to hide skin texture imperfection. The key to having a good look is to start with the basics. Your skin should look good and I truly believe this product goes a long way to achieving that goal.

I am finally going to admit to myself that this causes more issues than it helps. I have very sensitive skin, enlarged pores, clogged pores but hardly ever get a proper zit and a general uneven/rough skin texture. Being unable to find anything that helped, I broke down and bought the clarisonic. I alternated Trilogy Very Gentle Cleansing Cream and La Roche Posay Dermo Cleanser with it. On my first use I couldn't really feel any difference in my skin compared to my usual routine of double cleansing. I started using it once a night with the sensitive brush head that came with it and that was WAY too much for my skin. It was fine the first night but by the second, I was starting to get red bumps around my mouth. So after about a months break to heal, I started using it every other night, still the same result and now my skin was getting very dry and flaky. So I bought two new brush heads, the delicate and the deep pore brush and again waited for my skin to heal. I used the deep pore brush once a week and my skin still hated it...back to healing! I then tried the delicate brush once a week, sometimes twice and nope, skin still hated it. The entire year I've had the clarisonic I've suffered from red bumps around my mouth that will appear for a day or two, heal then more will appear, scaly/itchy patches around my skin and jaw and general horrible looking skin because it made it so dry no matter how rich a moisturiser I put on it. I've given it a year to work for me because it was such a huge investment and I am just going to have to accept that my skin is clearly too sensitive to use it. Even now, weeks after I stopped using it, I still get those damn red bumps!!! Plus, I didn't actually see any improvement in my blackheads, pores or clogged pores throughout the year I attempted to use it. All in all this was an utter fail for me and I am starting to really worry it may have damaged my skin.

pros for me:-takes off makeup so well!-your skin wont need anymore chemical exfoliator thatoften if used improperly just worsens the skin or breaks you out-saves money!i no longer have to buy toners with exfoliating properties and peels too.!-doesnt break me out-takes off flakes on your skin that help makeup be applied smoothly without need for primer or moisturizer-tones my skin and in two days ive seen less redness -removes pimples in a day!!!!!cons: none yet! i think this is very very good facial brush compared to the mia1 that i had before which broke me out.this one never broke me out, in fact it removed my existing pimples on my face that made my face clearer in two days.wow im so thankful for this, i think i found the answer for my skin needs, i no longer have to use acids on my face from toners and peels cause this one does all the job, i dont even need to moisturize ehich saves me a ton of money and makes my skin better than it has ever been when i was still using acids in it.

Although I have used it just for a couple of weeks I can say it is the best thing that has ever happened to my skin! Obviously, there are no miracles, but my skin's texture is more even, it feels clean, I have fewer spots, blackheads, dry patches and even less skin discoloration (sun spots). The only downside is that the brush may cause a bit of redness so it is important not to press it too firmly. Apart from that it's a winner!

I am going to leave this review for both the Mia and the Mia2 because the original Mia and the Mia2 are exactly the same except the original Mia doesn't have the additional faster speed. So, I used this for 2 months, that's 8 weeks and I saw no improvement from my usual acne problems. It's not like this made my face break out and erupt with more acne than I would usually get, but there was literally no difference apart from the texture of my skin was smoother. When I thought about how much I paid for the cleansing system in comparrison to the results I saw, I was just as annoyed as I would have been if I had a massive breakout. Now -- Let me talk about how it really feels on your face, not good. You see all the advertisments of the clear-skinned women using the clarisonic on their face and they look like they are relaxed and comforted by the experience of using the Clarisonic. These advertisments showed a completely different experience than mine to be perfectly honest! The outer bristles on the brush don't move so they just scrape across your skin and cause redness and the inner oscillating bristles are just too harsh and can even cause broken capillaries, luckily I didn't get to that point but if I wasn't careful I could easily have done that to myself. I definitley didn't feel like the people in the advertisments because I was making a constant pained expression as it scratched across my skin . The only thing that kept me using this was the hope that it would be the solution to my breakouts and that my skin would get used to it. Nope, my expectations were 100% unfulfilled. I'm just glad that I was able to take it back for a complete refund.

I have mixed feelings about this product. When it comes to exfoliating, it worked really well. My issue is it keeps breaking! The company has been cool about sending me new ones, but I've now had 3 of them break within 6 months. Considering how much they cost, it'd be nice if they lasted longer than 2 months!

Great investment if you are searching for a cleansing method that really takes care of your skin. Been using this for a few years, bought one for each of my two daughters and my mother. The oscillating movement of the brush heads does not pull the skin like the Clarisonic knock-offs; a variety of brushes are available for different kinds of skin (although I've kept with the sensitive because I like to use it twice a day). The sample cleanser is fine, although I typically use it with a basic cleanser, like Cetaphil or Pure. My skin has become even in texture, with very few breakouts and takes to treatment products and moisturizers well. Laughed at the price at first, but after I bought it and used it for a little while am thrilled. I clean the brush after every use with bar soap (Dove) and remove the brush and rinse the inside with soap every few days. It's helped to make my skin a clean and clear 'canvas' - very happy.
