I feel it does nothing for my skin, I haven't noticed any change AT ALL although i've had it for 7 months. It wasn't worth the money for me :(
I thought the Mia was the best thing since sliced bread and bought one for my sister too. This year though I discovered oscillating brushes that are about 1/2 as cheap and as good so I would have bought it again if not for the price. You can get an oscillating brush for less than $70 now and they throw creams in there. Here is an example of such a deal I found on groupon: http://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-silkn-facefx-antiaging-led-handheld-facial-device-and-hydrating-serum
I bought it for $95 on skinstore.com. First few days was pretty great. My skin was super clean but then after a week, it became really dry and flaky. My Esthetician said that she doesn't even recommend anyone to use Clarisonic because it over-exfoliates and we are supposed to exfoliate our skin once (or twice for people with oily skin) a week.
My Dermatologist agreed and she mentioned that it can lead to collagen damage and premature wrinkles due to over-exfoliation. I don't use it everyday anymore and my skin improved. I only use once a week or every other week to prevent excess oil buildup.
I've been using the Mia for about 8 months now and it really is both amazing and disgusting how much makeup is on it after I use it, even when I really thought I had taken it all off. Sort of gives me the creeps to think of all the leftover makeup I had left on my skin before I started using this. It hasn't done miracles for my mild acne but it does make my skin feel softer and smoother, and my makeup and moisturizer seems to go on a lot easier than before, in the dark ages when I washed my face with just my mediocre hands. I think it works best if you use it twice in a row(for two minutes instead of one), but maybe that's just me.
The Mia is a great product. I don't know how it does it, but it works wonders in keeping the skin clean, soft and clear.
I have been using it for a few months and it has really helped to keep my skin clear, reduced the my white heads and blackheads and my skin is soft and trouble free.
I use it at night in the shower and I feel like it really does the job.
I was recommended the Clarisonic Mia by my esthetician. I had heard rave reviews of this product, but I was always skeptical on buying it because of how pricey it is. I've been using it for about a week now. For the first few days, I really liked how clean it made my skin feel, and I felt that my skin looked a bit brighter. After the next few days, though--wow! What a difference it's made in my skin. I had this dime-sized spot of darker, dry skin next to my lip that had not gone away for 3 weeks, and after a few days of using the Mia on it, it went away completely! Nothing else had worked on diminishing its appearance except the Mia. My skin looks brighter and I did not even have to wear makeup on my recent vacation. My skin looks great in the photos! I will definitely keep on using the Mia for a long time. I'm a bit obsessed with exfoliating my skin since I'm prone to dry patches and hyperpigmentation, so this is great for me.
The only down side is that I feel I can't use it everyday--my skin is sensitive and sometimes parts of my skin will get drier if I use the Mia everyday. So, from now on, I will alternate every night with using the Mia.
Basically, if you have dull, discolored, acne prone skin like me, I would definitely look into buying this product. It's an investment but it's worth it in the long run. I also did not break out from the Mia, but I have read that some people have an 'initial breakout' with it.
EDIT on 6/14/13: I'm just coming back to add on that I've been using the Clarisonic Mia consistently for almost a year now. It has become an everyday essential for me in my skin routine; I can't go a day without it or else my skin feels congested. I have combination, acne prone skin and I get clogged pores VERY easily. Using the Clarisonic Mia has definitely helped me keep my pores cleaner and my overall face looking healthier/more even toned. It's helped fade hyperpigmentation really fast too. Overall, I LOVE my Clarisonic and will continue to use it everyday. I just bought a new brush head, the Deep Pore one, and I'm really loving how clean it helps my skin feel. One thing that I WILL say though is that don't expect this to be a 'miracle cure' for your acne, if you have acne. I get zits right around that time of the month and they still pop up. However, I do think the Clarisonic has prevented other ones from popping up. Basically if you're thinking about buying this product I say go for it!!
bought this because i needed some deep cleaning badly it. it does an amazing job of removing everything from your skin. i still cleanse to remove makeup then use this to be more thorough. i've been using for 2 weeks so far and this has started to clear up some pretty large cystic bumps i've had lurking under my skin. i know these would have taken forever to clear up on their own. i purchased the deep pore brush head and have been using that mainly right now, but will alternate with the sensitive head. so far i'm pleased with the results and will update if anything drastic happens
*edit* ended up returning. the initial benefits were short lived and not worth the price
I can't say enough good things about the Clarisonic. It makes my skin feel so smooth and even after using a makeup remover, this gets any traces left over of makeup. I use it every night but sometimes I'll use it twice a day (I love that I can use it in the shower). Totally worth it. I usually buy a new head for it every 4-5 months and I don't notice any difference. I'm very excited to try the new acne brush.
LOVE THE CLARISONIC.
I love love love this product! I ordered mine off the internet but you can buy the tool at Ulta. The product comes with different types of brush heads. I used the sensitive one for my face and I also use the body brush to give myself a nice exfoliation before I shave my legs. I would recommend using the sensitive brush at first because when introducing this product to your face for the first time it can be a bit harsh. Also, when I first started using this product I had minor acne/blackheads so at first my skin just got worse from using this, but after one week one skin started to clear up look amazing! The first week of using this product your face is purging all of the bad gross stuff so don't freak out! In addition, it is said that using the Mia your face is 6 times cleaner than if you were to manually clean your face! It may only 6 times cleaner but that's enough for me! I love the clean feeling I get after using it! This should be everyone's first purchase to better healthier skin!
This product is AH-MAZING! ive been using it for a week now and after the first day i used it my skin felt so soft and so clear. The next day i woke up and my mom noticed a difference in my skin right away. I use to wake up with a new pimple everyday and since ive been using this I have yet to get a single pimple. It reduced the size of my pores and is slowly getting rid of my acne scars. I love it!
