I remember being on the fence for about a year. I couldn't wrap my head around how much of a difference a cleansing brush could do- that Neutrogena vibrating thing didn't do anything groundbreaking. The people at my local sephora couldn't pursuad me into making the plunge. I ended up buying my grandma the Mia2 as a Christmas gift. Not even a month later, I was lucky enough to receive one during brand training. I waited impatiently for the 24 hours to pass so it was nice and charged. And I used it. After the first use I noticed just how clean my face felt. It was super smooth and my noticeable pores didn't look like there was any junk left behind. I didn't experience the initial purge phase or find it too abrasive on my skin. I use it twice a day, morning and night, on the lower speed. The battery life is really good. I've only had to charge it a handful of times since October. I hope I never have to deal with customer service however I've only had good things said to me about their hotline. The thing that got me was how my skin reacted to me not using it. I went out for a going away party and I didn't end up coming home. I used one of the makeup removing wipes I had in my purse and my skin was not happy the next morning. My skin rarely breaks out but I had a couple of small, really painful blemishes along my chin. If you're considering hopping on the clarasonic bandwagon... I'll be cheering you on. I would have eventually bought one for myself, and I'll have been just as thankful.

I just got my clarisonic yesterday and I am amazed by the results from just one use. I have fairly good skin but can get very dry during the winter when it's windy, and I rarely get pimples except little bumps that appear like blemishes on my cheeks. After cleansing with this last night, my skin was noticeably more smooth, and the texture was almost completely evened out. I can't wait to see the improvement in my skin with continued use of the mia2 and the cleanser it comes with. Clarisonic's refreshing gel cleanser foams really well, feels gentle on the skin, and smells SO amazing. I highly recommend this product.

My husband got this for me from Ulta. When I used it for about a week, all I could say was "wow". This is a very good product, and if you use it daily, you will get great results. My skin is so very smooth now that I started using it. I also love the packaging. It looks luxurious and you get what you pay for.

After using this for a couple of months, I feel like I can review this. I received this for Christmas from my boyfriend who knows I'd never spend this much on myself for a skin care product. This is a great little tool for those who wear makeup on a daily basis because a washcloth just doesn't cut it. My skin is really sensitive to any scrubbing and anything abrasive and I was a little hesitant about how this might affect my skin. Even scratching an itch on my face can leave me with a few bumps. This has surprisingly not given me any negative side effects. My kit came with a sensitive brush head which a lot of people complain about being too scratchy, but I don't have a problem with it myself. It can be used with any face wash and popping out the outer rim of the brush head gives you a smaller brush head to use around your nose if you prefer that. I've used mine every day sometimes twice and only had an issue when I began using my alpha hydrox cream with it. My skin didn't break out but did become really red, so I only use that cream every other day now. If you have normal skin and don't wear makeup I don't see the reason you would need this. But if you're like me, not going a day without it, it may be worth it.

I love the Clarisonic. It provides a gentle, yet deep cleansing action. It also works to slough off the dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores from forming. It is pretty expensive, but in my opinion it is worth the price. There are a lot of cheaper replicas of this product, although they don't work nearly as well as the original. The only thing I don't like about this is needing to charge it every few days.

This is a staple in my skin care routine. Many people mistake this product as an anti-acne product, which it is not. It is for better overall skin and improved elasticity and it did both for me. I use an anti-acne wash with the clarisonic, so it helps with my acne too. Either way this product is great for minimizing pores and a nicer feel to the skin. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants amazing skin

Clarisonic is an amazing product. I'm glad I decided to get it. It is a game changer in my skin care routine. I use this product for extra cleansing when I have foundation on. I like to make sure all my makeup are remove from my face. It does help with my acne but does not make any major difference. I think it slowly make a difference when it comes to acne. Overall, I like it. The heads are expensive, 4 heads are sell at $81. I do agree that you will experience breakout that you might not have, but it is worth it. The breakouts are not that bad, you will experience a few whiteheads. The first two weeks is where you will experience the purging.

I've had two clarisonic Mia2s, one I bought off ebay and one I bought at macys and I highly recommend buying one from a legitimate retailer because the macys one works so much better and the vibrations feel like deeper sonic vibrations rather than just surface oscillations.

That being said, this is NOT going to cure acne, however it does help maintain good skin and I've noticed a change in the texture of my breakouts- I used to suffer from large under the skin pimples that never came to head but now it's more congested skin and/or small pimples. I tried to use this twice a day but it ends up leaving your skin a little too stripped and "thin" so I only this at night with my acnefree cleanser and it does a good job at preventing acne. I think a clarisonic will help everyone, even those with good skin because it makes your face brighter and more even and I get over hyper pigmentation quicker. My main qualm is that I never know when the battery is going to die (wish there was a warning light) and sometimes it'll run out mid-face. Also I buy the generic brush heads, they are slightly stiffer but do the job just fine, you can find them on ebay). Also you should change the brush head at your discretion, I think mine last 6 months before they get funky. and lastly, don't let your fear of the "purging" period keep you from trying one! I had bad skin anyway and I couldn't tell if the clarisonic added to it or not.

I've been using Mia 2 for 6 months lately and i really like it and use it both in my morning and night routine. I have combination skin which is my T area is a bit oily and my cheeks are dry and after using it, my skin feels more clean and more bright. BUT it gave me break outs and I got some acnes around my T spot and my mother thinks that it's because of Mia because I never had any before but I think it's because of the Clinique Smart Serum which is I really hate.. Whatever just make sure you change your brush after 3 months and give it a try.. You'll love it

"My skin never felt this smooth ever since i was 12"
Now this type of review finally sold me after i read tonnes and tonnes of great review on the clarisonic. I live in indonesia so it's not that easy to get my hands on this baby. But let me tell you it was worth the wait, the price, and the anxiety to get me some of its sonic cleansing goodness. What those people said about their skin never felt that way in such a long time since childhood is true!
This tool has helped me dropped my dermatologist precription creams that i've used since 2004 ENTIRELY with no "weaning" efforts to slowly let myself let go of it which i try to do all the time with great failure since my face would just go into havoc mode in about 2 weeks in (tried only applying glycolic acid serums which said would help congested bumpy skin have a normal turnover so its smoother, etc etc., major breakouts of whiteheads and blackheads that my facialist called me out on it)
I would washwith the deep pore brush in the morning at 8 am, and by 1 pm my face still looks like i wore a mufe pro finish after a long day, near perfect, pores calmed down, less red because there's no active acne to speak of and just slightly oily instead of all dull and tacky from the oil my face combined with the doctor's creams used to give me. Sometimes i just cant believe it but i'm so thankful i got these, now i use just generic non oily lotions and sunblock for my face and it allowed me to be less worrisome when getting near my young baby because my face felt a lot cleaner, much less oily and free of harsh acne fighting chemicals. Thankyou so much clarisonic, i hope i would continue my love affair with you till our ripe old age :)

Oh and i've only been using this for 3 weeks and started first with the softer acne brush to accustomed my skin with the clarisonic, once i've used the deep pore brush i know this brush would work the best for my congested, sensitive, oily skin. I will update if the positive result changed for some reason or another but for now, everytime i looked in the mirror it reminds me of how it seemed to only does wonders for my skin. :)
