I love the Clairsonic Mia 2!
Honestly my face has never felt so good or so clean! When I was actively dealing with PCOS, my face was the first sign of stress and hormonal unbalance. Prior to getting pregnant I had used many prescription products for adult acne - all which worked to some extent.
Check out some of my old posts of just how bad my acne could get :My acne from a year ago
Knock on wood, but ever since pregnancy I have had the occasional breakout, but nothing like it used to be.
I received this as a Holiday gift, I have been using since the end of December 2012... I can't imagine not having this! I have always had sensitive/combo skin. The Mia 2 comes with a sensitive brush head -I find it's perfect for me. I only use it once a day, every other day. Since it's winter in Chicago my face seems a bit dryer then normal - so that routine may change when Spring/Summer arrive.
If I have put makeup on that day, I will first use Neutrogena Makeup Remover clothes. I read that some makeup products could stain the brush head- but not affect it negatively otherwise. I would rather just avoid that chance. I have also used these makeup remover clothes forever - I like them... so I'm in the habit. I also feel like when I use these with the brush - I have really done everything to remove all the makeup/chemicals in products/dirt & grime that have built up on my face over the course of the day.
So, once all my makeup is removed, I wet my face apply the soap to the brush and go. At first it took a couple nights to get into the swing of things, but now the process is seamless - fast as can be. You can use any cleanser that you have - just nothing with micro-beads. I have a cleanser that I have been using for years.
The Brush has a timer so you know how long to stay at each section of your face. 20 sec nose and forehead, 20 sec chin and nose, and 10 seconds for each cheek - 1 min and your done! Nothing can be easier then that.
Yea, it's expensive... however, totally worth it! You are to replace the brush head every 3 months. I bought a value bundle 4 pack at my local ULTA with a 20% - what a score! You can use your own soap, so that shouldn't be an expense factored in. I am truly happy with this product and I do feel like it has made a genuine difference in the appearance of my skin - smaller pores, less blackheads, and fewer breakouts.
