This is really well marketed and I think that's about the only thing good about this product. Very uncomfortable to use. I followed the instructions, watched online videos to try to improve my technique, all to no avail. It's just too harsh on my sensitive skin even with the sensitive skin brush heads. My face was very bright pink and irritated looking. Returned. I'll stick with my usual routine of using a washcloth daily or every other day and then throwing in a homemade sugar scrub (using brown sugar because of the finer grain, milk and honey). This is probably a great tool for a lot of people, but I don't want to damage my skin for months to come to the same conclusion, that this isn't for me or my skin. I get pimples (some cystic on occasion) and I find that my usual routine works much better. This is very expensive and I think you can get the same exfoliating benefit either using gentle vitamin c or vitamin a based skin products OR using a washcloth. I can't imagine how much dead skin one is really accumulating on their face that using this daily or every other day would be wise. Faces aren't like feet. The skin is more delicate and thin than elsewhere. I don't know. If you buy it make sure you're aware of the return policy and that you don't push through using something if it seems it's irritating you. I think that I was disappointed to return this because it's so expensive and there are so many glowing reviews, but honestly everyone is different and this won't work for everybody.

I hesitated to try this because of my rosacea. However, I think it's a fabulous product. My skin feels to clean, and my pores look better. We're going to Europe for three weeks, and I'm afraid I'm going to have to take it along.

I just don't get the hype with this product. When I first heard of clarisonic, I thought I'd never buy one, ever. I just assumed it was an unnessecary, marketing gimmick or glorified scrubbing brush. I just couldn't understand how it would work any better than using a scrub, or a chemical exfoliant. After reading the glowing reviews on makeup alley and elsewhere, I eventually decided I HAD to try this. The desire for a glowing, clear complexion was just too much! First of all, it's fairly pricey initially, and then every few months or so you still have to replace the brushes at a cost of about $30AUD. I'm really not sure if certain bristle heads make a difference as I've only used the 'normal' brush, and thus this is the brush head that my review will be on. And the results? Well I can't say I noticed a difference in my skin at all! The first time I used it, I thought my skin looked glowing and fresh, but after that, my skin just looked the same after I used it. I used it most nights and nothing! I decided to try it again a few nights ago and the next day I looked in the mirror and my skin looked irritated, especially the tops of my cheeks. Almost a little rashy.I honestly just don't think this is a necessity. Yeh, it feels indulgent to use, almost like a mini facial at home, but that's about it. I will also say just to be careful you don't overdo it with the exfoliation. I'm sure some people use this as well as chemical exfoliants, and I wouldn't be surprised if this does more harm than good.

I do not like the Clarisonic Mia at all. It's cute and baby pink, but that's it. My skin looked horrible after using it for only a few days. I followed all instructions and used my regular mild cleanser, but it changed my skin texture from smooth and normal to flaky and snake-like. I was shocked to see myself in outdoor lighting. I was excited to try this product after an esthetician recommended it. They offer a free facial and other products if you buy a Clarisonic from them. I'm sure they must receive money for sales. Anyway, I optimistically made the expensive purchase of a Mia feeling good that I was doing something good for my skin. I've used Clinque for years, including their scrub. My skin has been in very good condition, especially for my age. My main reason for wanting the Mia was to eliminate my scrub and replace it with something gentler on my skin. In recent years I've begun to notice broken capillaries. Anyway, after 3 days I'm back to my old routine with my Clinique scrub and my skin has recovered. The Mia is going back to the store tomorrow. Good riddens.

Love my Mia! I need to get into a better routine with it. I do not use it as regularly as I should and am also bad about letting the battery run down. (but only because a charge lasts so long! I just forget.) I am still undecided which brush head is best for me. But I do know this...my skin looks and feels better when I'm using it regularly. Also, using it just feels pampering...it's relaxing. I also feel that my moisturizer absorbs better when I use the Mia first. Before I had a Clarisonic, I used an old fashioned "manual" complexion brush. That helps. But the Clarisonic is a hundred times better!

After months and months of researching this product, I decided to finally pony up the $189 and buy it as a Christmas gift to myself. I could barely contain my excitement, ready to have the glowing, perfect skin so many people raved about.Most of the reviews that I had watched and read warned me of the 'skin purging' phase, in which my skin would be the worst it'd ever i, only to reveal beautiful skin within a week or two.About 5 days into using the Clarisonic, I started seeing breakouts, the first signs of skin purging, or so I thought. Over the next days and weeks, my skin was the most horrible it'd ever been. I told myself to 'keep my eyes on the prize' and kept using it.Three months later, at the end of March, I stopped using the Clarisonic, because my skin never got better. I started using it twice a day, to once a day, to once every other day. I started with Simple's Moisturizing Wash, then switched to Murad's Clarifying Cleanser for acne, then went to Purity by Philosophy, and ended up using Cetaphil, the gentlest of them all. Nothing worked. My skin simply hated the Clarisonic.My heart was broken. I had shelled out over $200 (with tax) for the Clarisonic, and I wanted to love it so bad. I'm so glad to hear it works so well for others and I know it's an amazing product, but if you have sensitive skin, be warned.

I bought this on a whim 5 months ago and I'm never going back to just washing my face with my hands. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean and more smooth, and if I don't use it, it my skin just doesn't feel the same. It's essential in my skin care routine and I recommend it to anyone. Even though it is expensive, it's forth every penny

I seen this and thought wow! I must have it it must remove makeup so well. I ordered it. It's a cute product, looks like it could work. But I used it for a little over nine months and no difference at all, except around the 8th and a half month I seen broken capillaries, I didn't think the clarasonic was causing this but A few broken capillaries later I realized this is what caused it. Charging it is a pain, dies frequently, and the brushes need to be replaced every few weeks because it does collect bacteria and get all nasty, despite washing it. Not worth 200$, 150$, 99$. I used better drugstore brushes like this which worked better.

I am completely obsessed with my Mia. In my opinion, you do not need to buy the more expensive machines, this one has one speed and it does the trick! I highly recommend this for anyone with skin, it just works! Your face will feel smoother, makeup will look better, products will absorb better into your skin and you will feel like your are pampering yourself everyday! My only con would be that the brush heads are stupidly expensive. Also, don't bother with trying to buy knockoff brush heads online, they wont work. (I tried!)

I've been using my mia 2 for at least 6 months now and after some trial and error have come to love it. When I first started using it, I did it twice a day every day, which was a big mistake. There was a purging period which is understandable, but I think my overuse of the device made it worse and last longer. I had a ton of breakouts on my chin which has never been an area of concern for me, and it seemed like I was never blemish-free. Now, I only use it when I'm taking off makeup or just finished a workout, so around 2/3 times a week. My skin is the clearest it has been in years, and I rarely get breakouts. Exfoliation is key to a clear and glowing complexion, and the Clarisonic gives you that without damaging the skin. I highly recommend this, but you have to be willing to give it time and experiment with it. And remember to not overdo it!
