What it is: Clarisonic Mia Sonic Cleansing System
Why this should be in your bag
Clean skin is the base for a great looking face. If you’re broken out, you’re going to slather on the heavy foundation and no one likes a cake-face. It looks unnatural, to say the least.
I have fairly decent skin, except when I get stressed. I get these little bumps all over my chin and forehead. It’s just atrocious and being stressed about my skin does nothing to help these bumps go away! I’ve heard rave reviews about the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Systems, so I was pretty excited to test out the Mia. The Mia is a compact version of the original Clarisonic, with all the same benefits in a smaller form. It’s perfect for busy students and traveling.
How to use it
The Mia comes with pretty clear instructions, but here is the general idea. You wet your skin and brushhead and then apply cleanser to either one. Then, turn on the Mia and begin on your forehead, using a circulation motion while the machine vibrates. Pushing too hard inhibits the machine’s action, so be aware! The Mia also comes with a handy 1 minute timer and shuts off automatically once your time is up. The instructions also come with a breakdown for how long you should spend on each area of your face.
Right now, I’m using the Sensitive Brush, but you can buy a whole array of brushes from Clarisonic. They recommend replacing them every 3-4 months.

Unfortunately, I think I’m going to need to test this little number out some more before I give a definitive answer.
