I recently celebrated my 23rd birthday and fortunately was given a coupon code from a Sephora employee for 20% off. As soon as I saw the coupon I knew exactly what I was going to use it on. The Clarisonic Mia cleansing system has been on my wish list for quite some time. The only reason I had been procrastinating on the purchase was because the price is a little steep, the one I got was $119 and that is the smallest one available for purchase. With the coupon I paid a total of $103. Not too shabby for a birthday present to myself. Hey, a girls gotta spoil herself sometime why not on her birthday!?
In case you haven’t heard about this product it is a cleansing tool for your face that, according to the makers, clean your skin 6x deeper than manual cleaning. The one that I got only comes with one speed that will stay on for 60 seconds and turn off automatically. One of the features that I love most about it is that it’s waterproof so I can use it in the shower! I have noticed in the fee times I’ve used it how much smoother my skin is. I don’t really have acne only once in awhile a blemish will appear and be stubborn. Blackheads are a problem on my nose and I have a couple acne scars so I am hoping this product will just liven up my face and help me achieve an even toned brighter clear face.
Right off the bat, I noticed how it really removes everything that’s left under your skin. Normally, at night I can be a little lazy, so prefer to use makeup cleansing wipes. I used one of those, and washed with the Mia and was amazed at all the residue that is still left on my skin. And to think that I would sleep like that! Now, I am a makeup lover, I love to put on makeup sometimes just for fun. I definitely think this product is for anyone, but especially if you are like me and can’t go a day without makeup. We must remember in order for our makeup to look flawless we must have a flawless canvas. This product gives me hope that I can have the best fresh face for me. I will do another update on this product when I have used it more. Maybe in another month and then three to six months as well. I am using it with the bareMinerals Purifying Cleanser (another product I love) because it is gentle but leaves my skin feeling squeaky without over drying. I follow that with a with hazel toner and Murad moisturizers for day and night. I also try to do a combination of mask, scrub, or peel to my skin twice a week. So far is product seems to allow my skin to absorb all those products so much better. Hope I will see a difference but I will keep you guys posted! Also, if any readers have this product I would love to hear your opinion on it!
