I don't think the higher price for the Mia2 is worth it for this collection. The cleanser they include is thin that it always gets in my eyes when I am using it for my forehead. I also think the acne brush head has the extra long bristles to make it gentle but they make it challenging to really exfoliate. I have sensitive skin and it is pretty thin as well but the acne brush head just sort of dragged long and the bristle length made it harder to make the little circles the product guide advises you to make.
The deep pore brush head was so much more effective for me & I don't have the "thick, oily skin with large pores" skin type that they say the brush head is for.
-Mia2 doesn't let you increase the time from 1 to 2 minutes like the new Aria does
-The cleanser is worthless
-The packaging and the Mia2 travel holder (cheap) don't justify the $ continued >>
I bought this since it launched earlier this year. I have been wanting to get MIA for sometime and when this launched, I was super excited as I do suffer from acne. Not severe but mild to moderate, and was supremely thrilled when this came out. I ordered it and including shipping it was around USD200.00. Yes super expensive, since I dont live in the States.
The Mia that comes with this set is a MIA 2, which comes with a tea timer and adjustable speed. Honestly, the speed option is useless cuz I only ever use the slow speed. but I feel the tea timer helps a lot, so that I know when to move on to a different area of my face while cleansing. The set came with MIA 2, acne clarifying brush and an acne clarifying cleanser which contains Salicylic Acid of 2%. I honestly dont like the brush, I feel that its too soft and doesnt give my face a good clean, and since then have switched to the sensitive brush head. And the cleanser is a pretty basic cleanser that helps a little in controlling break outs.
All in all, does this help vanish all my acne? Well, no. Not an acne miracle tool. This helps especially if you wear make up to get rid of any gunk stuck in pores-and it does help you get clogged free but no, it would not prevent future breakouts, however with the cleanser, it does help reduce the number of acne, but not by much.
It does however help your skin becomes slightly softer and will definitely improve your skin's texture overtime. All in all, I feel that this is an essential tool if you wear make up daily and want to be sure that all make up is cleansed off, but if you dont wear make up and you're looking to buy this thinking it would help eradicate your acne, well this isnt it. Look elsewhere. Nevertheless if you want to get the MIA, I'd suggest getting the MIA 1 OR 2, no need to spend the extra cash on this one, or better yet try Hitachi Hada Crie-and that one I'm in love with!
