I'm pretty shocked that I didn't get the deep skin pimples yet...but then again I've only been using this for 2 days. My skin is pretty much the same. I will update in a while and see if it made a difference. Would not buy again and hope it won't break that easily. New heads, yes but the machine should be ok for a long time. Will stop if anything goes wrong. Sephora has an excellent return policy : ) Update...OMG...I really like this product!!! I've worked out a really good plan. 1. Remove makeup with oil until no trace left. I know that it says that we can use this to remove makeup...blah blah blah...u really shouldn't. Y? Because during the time that the brush is working it will open up your pores and y the heck would you want the things you're gonna remove go into your pores? So yes, remove your makeup!!!2. Use a nice foaming soap...ok...I know you're not supposed to but...with a foaming soap you can be sure to kill all the bacteria and SEE what you missed if you missed a spot on your face so you can have a better result. 3. I use my acne wash that doesn't foam...and I've been using it for more than a year and I still love it. Hey, if it aint broke, stick with it! : )4. Since all of the previous steps are really drying, if you are a person that breaks out and uses acne medicine...it's best that you find a good moisturizer. Find a moisturizer that works even before you use the brush. Find one that works and then use the brush so that you won't introduce 2 things at once. Who knows you skin might react to the moistuizer and not the brush? 5. Make sure to dry the brush properly after use. Dry it just like how you would charge it; the brush side up. Drying the water between uses to ensure that the bacteria doesn't live on your brush. 6. Last but not least, don't use it more than 2 times per day unless you've got a badass moisturizer! Use, hate or love it...just get it in a store that has a good return policy I.e Sephora. If it doesn't work then at least you won't regret missing out on something that could potentially be great. Wow...hope this helps future users...a bit extensive I know lol...2nd update; turned out to be a bit harsh for the long run. Got an amazing peel...I know they are not the same thing but...using this and the peel is a bit too much for me. I think I'll return it to Sephora after my tests. It didn't break me out...I just like the peel better than this so for my delicate skin's sake...I'll have to let it go.

I thought this product was super expensive but b/c of all the rave reviews, i figured it would be worth it and it was. I had this weird pimple that just wouldn't go away and normally my pimples go away pretty fast. This one was super stubborn. I used my mia with my b.kamins vegetable cleanser. After 2 days of using it, the pimple was gone! =) so happy

Clarisonic has changed my skin! I've been using it for about a year and the transformation has been amazing. It exfoliates without being harsh, has cleared up my clogged pores/blackheads and evened out my skintone. I never wash my face without it. I have bought one for both my sister and mom and highly recommend it to everyone. Love the mia because it fits perfectly in my shower-organizer caddy in my shower. The charge lasts for weeks. If/when the one I have dies on me, I will immediately buy a new one.

I waited for about two months before reviewing. After the first week of use, I was ready to return..but waited. Instead of using it 2x a day, I swithed to 1x at night. I find this, so far, has been the only thing to take off all of my make-up/sunscreen ect. Yes, my face purged like crazy at first...for about 3 weeks. I knew it would end, & I didn't mind too much. I was glad all the crap was finally coming out. The biggest difference has been the texture of my skin. Extremly smooth. Break-outs have now settled down. Really glad I kept it, as I wasn't sure if my sensitive skin could take it. May switch to the delicate brush after this one wears out, but so far my skin has finally adapted to it.

Skin: Acne-prone, Dark, Not Sure
I havent noticed any dramatic changes in my skin but it does deep clean well. i used to use a face brush before this because my skin really does well with manual exfoilation over chemical and i find this goes much faster. my biggest suggestion is to start slow with this or your skin will be irritated and break out, try using it 2x a week and moving to every other day when your skin can handle it. if your skin feels "off" take a few days off instead of aggravating it further. some people will be abe to use it daily and some wont. i do love this before using my retin a and a day or two after to remove flakes retin a causes. it helps the RA penetrate deeper b/c the top layer of dead skin is removed.

I just love my Clarisonic Mia! I have been using it for about 6 weeks now, and my skin has never been softer or smoother. My foundation goes on more smoothly, and I think my skin has a bit of a glow that it did not have before! This product is totally worth the investment.

I'm so glad I bought this. I break out less often and my skin looks less dull. I don't feel like the brush scratches my skin or is too harsh, but my skin isn't sensitive either. The only complaint would be how expensive the system can be if you include how often you have to replace the brush heads (every 3 months; single head = $25). As cheap as I am though, I felt like this was def. a worthwhile investment.

I've used my Clarisonic Mia every night since the end of December, and I absolutely love it. Although the price of the Mia is expensive, I do think it is worth it if you are willing to spend a little more for skincare and invest in the future health of your skin. The Clarisonic Mia is basically a facial cleansing brush that is supposed to cleanse your pores 6x more efficient than cleansing with your hands, thus supposedly helping minimize pore appearance size, cleaning pores, reducing fine lines, and creating a better skin texture.Since i started using my Mia over three months ago, I noticed that my skin texture was instantly improved. My skin is so much smoother, and a lot of the redness was minimized. I didn't really noticed a dramatic disappearance of acne, but I do think using the Clarisonic Mia has helped prevent some breakouts. This product helps clean off my makeup, oil, and dirt that is or could be on my face like no other.Some cons about this product is that it is pretty expensive, and replacement heads for the Mia are also ridiculously priced. They recommend that you replace the brush heads about every three months, but I've decided to make it every four months for me, since my Mia came with one brush head, and I purchased a double pack. The Mia vibrates for one minute, and doesn't beep every ten/twently seconds like the Original Clarisonic, to indicate that it's time to move to a different section of the face. I think one minutes isn't enough, especially on days when I am wearing a little more makeup. So, I find myself pressing the on button again immediately when it shuts off, and then using that second round for an addition thirty seconds.All in all, I do recommend the Clarisonic Mia to those that are looking for a product to deep clean and even out texture. I do think the Clarisonic is worth it in the long run, but for some it might not be necessary. Do keep in mind that the Clarisonic Mia is the travel sized version, so it cannot fit the full body brush head. You will also have to purchase new brush heads every 3-4 months, which cost $40. for a two-pack and $25. for a single brush head.

Clarisonic Mia (Vs. Pretika)PROSOperation is much much quieter than the Pretika.Brush head is slightly softer (probably better for super sensitive skin).Varying brush heads (sensitive, normal). Handle is easier to hold and more comfortable.Smaller brush head so easier to get places around the nose.CONSDid not help clear up my face at all which the Pretika did (this is very important since that is the purpose of this tool for me). I actually broke out worse after using the Clarisonic (using the same cleaners as I did with the Pretika).No timer.Cost. The initial cost of the Mia is substantially higher (Pretika is $50, and cheaper if you find it at Marshall's and the like). The long term cost is also very expensive with brushes running around $20 a piece where as you can get 4 Pretika brushes for the same price. CONCLUSIONThe Clarisonic is good if you have really sensitive skin because it doesn't really do much (but that also means it's a big waste of money, I think massaging with your finger tips gives you about the same result). The Pretika actually works for me and helps clear up my skin and the price is right. It's not as well put together as the Clarisonic, it's much louder, more plastic-y, not as comfortable to hold-- but ultimately it does a better job which is what's important!!!
