It’s been long, I know! I recently moved and have been busy interior designing. But without further due, I want to let you know what happened lately to my skin.
So many of you know that I have super sensitive acne-prone skin. I have mentioned gazillion times, that I am very cautious on the do and don’ts of my skincare routine. Even though it's a struggle to find the perfect product the one product sticks to me is, Mia by Clarisonic. With my big acne face, I started using Clarisonic 4 years ago, over time my skin has actually transformed and recovered.
Recently Mia 2 fell in my lap and I couldn’t feel more blessed. I used Mia 2 religiously for a week and I was really happy with what I saw day after day.
What is Clarisonic?
For the new-bees, here is what Clarisonicis about! Clarisonic is a part of L’Oréal Group, therefore the mission of the company is beauty. Calsonic’s mission is to beautifully transform skin and it does that by cleansing skin 6X better than hands alone. And YEAH, you can use it twice a day!
Clarisonic works with the spinning brushes that exfoliate and clean your pores to the max. Speaking of brushes, there are multiple selections of brushes available that suit your skin.
How I use it?
For the nitty-gritty, tech-savvy me, experimenting with Mia 2 is an adventure. I started with my Clarisonicjourney with Mia, which helped me a lot over the years. Quite honestly, since fall started this year, I’ve been wearing a ton makeup, but how to remove this without clogging pores ?!?!? * DRUMROLL * Here comes Mia 2!
1. I first take off all the stubborn makeup from my skin using makeup remover.
2. Mia 2 works wonder on wet skin, so I wet my skin first
3. Next, I apply Deep Pore Daily cleanser on the brush head … You can also apply it on your skin and then use Mia 2 over it.
4. Turn on the Mia 2 power and I use it to cleanse from the forehead (20 seconds ), cheeks ( 10 seconds ) and chin (20 seconds ) removing all the excess dirt, makeup, and pollutants.
5. If the speed is not as I desire, I can alter it by making it faster or slower.
6. This is a one-minute micro-massage for your face at home, so Mia 2 pauses itself after a minute.
7. If you think you want a little more of Mia 2, you can repeat the process. If not then clean the brush with lukewarm water and set it aside.
8. VIOLA! Beautiful skin.
The difference between Mia 1 and Mia 2 is that Mia 2 is twice as faster as Mia 1 and has a T-Timer ( 1 minute ) that makes it worth it.
If I were to give a rating , I’ll definitely give Mia 2, all 5 stars. Waking up in the morning to use Clarisonicis always the bright start my day. It has actually helped me survive and treated my acne. No wonder it is recommended by a dermatologist in the US. I often charge my Clarisonic - Mia 2 and take it with me in the shower. I think it works better when there is more water, making my skin squeaky clean as a result.
The two additional products in this set are deep pore cleanser and detoxifying clay mask.
I used both of these products with and without Clarisonic Mia 2, and I enjoyed how my skin texture turned smooth.
The deep pore cleanser I used with Clarisonic is my go-to. I apply a few pearl-size drops on my brush head and run it through my face. I am happy to say it is a transparent light pink gel, that doesn’t have any strong scent within. The product hasn’t reacted to my skin and should be good for normal skin types. I use the product daily that’s why I apply moisturizer to my forehead, chin and the corner of my nose after every wash.
Detoxifying Mud Mask is the charm of this Clarisonic package. I’ve used it twice a week and my skin has never felt as breathable. I was extremely impressed that within 15 minutes the mud mask tends to take away all the impurities. Usually, applying clay or masks to my skin is a task. I feel itchy and have a burning sensation, but with the Clarisonic mud mask, I didn’t feel these symptoms. I believe now that Clarisonic definitely makes products that are effective and bearable for sensitive skin.
I hope you all liked reading my Clarisonic Mia 2 journey. Please feel free to share your thoughts and comments on how Clarisonic worked for you.
