What is Clarisonic Mia 2?
Clarisonic is a brand that produces face (and body) brushes that use the sonic micro massage technique, so they are delicate and perfect for everyday skin cleansing.
These brushes do a nice job - they do 300 micromovements per second !!!
The brush was my Easter gift from Wojtek. So I've been using it for over 9 months.
Why have I decided to review it now?
1. Too early
It was love at first sight. I have loved it since the first use. From day to day I observed a huge improvement in my complexion. It was so visible that I was afraid of the placebo effect or a total lack of objectivity, so for the first weeks I refrained from writing about it.
2. You don't appreciate what you have until you lose it
For almost a year I managed to get used to all the good things that this brush gave me. The old times sometimes reminded me of photos from a year ago or five, which I came across, and what caught my eye was a complexion often full of imperfections that I struggled with for years.
When one day in December my brush refused to charge, I complained about it and received a completely new product. Unfortunately, this procedure took over 2 weeks and only then I realized how much I miss it and how much benefit it gave me. I realized that my complexion is still very problematic, but thanks to daily new care I almost forgot about it.
Why do I love my Clarisonic Mia 2 brush?
1. My complexion
It turned out that for my complexion prone to imperfections, which leave souvenirs in the form of discoloration, it is perfect. I see that my skin needs exactly such care and very thorough, daily cleansing and massage, then it does not rebel and pays off with an even, calm color. My complexion looks good today like never before. This does not mean, however, that it is perfect. After 20 years of struggling with imperfections, and for many years also with acne, my face will probably never be perfect, but its condition today satisfies me in 90%. For several months, I have been free to wash my makeup and show myself to other household members, knowing that comments from what I am saying do not divert imperfections. I feel good in my skin.
2. The pleasure he gives me
Firstly, this massage is pleasant, secondly relaxing, thirdly… well, I love it! This brush is waterproof and I always use it in the shower in the evening.
3. Easy to use and charge
No replaceable batteries, sockets that must not be soaked. I put the magnetic charger on and leave it on all night. In the morning, the brush is ready to use for many consecutive days.
Is Clarisonic a brush for everyone?
I do not know. I know one thing, I regret that I tried such care so late, so if, like me, you are struggling with imperfections, acne, with aching changes, it's worth trying this solution. Since I use it, I have given up most skincare products that I have used before.
How much does it cost?
The brush is available at the regular price of PLN 649, but you can easily buy it for PLN 519 here >> click. The store makes regular discounts for holders of a loyalty card, when a 20% discount is granted to the entire range of the store - it is these days that I shop there.
There is nothing to hide - the brush is not cheap and in my opinion it is its only drawback. I even forgave her for the failure, because she did so much good for me that I treat it as a lovers' quarrel, after which it's even more fun. A big plus for the manufacturer for the trouble-free replacement of the equipment with a new one - I received a new brush, but the entire set, which you can see in the photos.
I got the brush in white and it was probably the best choice for my taste, but you can buy it in one of several beautiful, pastel colors.
Beware of fakes!
When my friend recommended the Clarisonic toothbrush to me, overwhelmed by its price in Sephora, of course, I started searching the internet for cheaper stores that I found without any problems. It's good that I told her about it, because then she told me the story of how she herself wanted to save on buying a toothbrush and used the popular website with discount coupons. Unfortunately, instead of the original product, it received ... a great counterfeit. It took a lot of time and nerves to assert her rights and recover her money for this scam. That is why I did not dare to buy brushes anywhere else than in Sephora. Thanks Asia!
Is it worth overpaying?
There are many face brushes on the market, most of them will be available at a much lower price.
I have felt my deep bond with the facial brush since forever. Already in elementary school, I thought to use a toothbrush (sic!) With the softest bristles available in a drugstore for face care. Later, I was delighted to see a manual face brush on a drugstore shelf. Unfortunately, neither of them had the desired effects. I also tried miracles from supermarkets and those from Allegro, which sooner or later ended up in the trash, and apart from imperfections, I had an irritated complexion. That's why I believe that if you have suffered from skin problems for many years, it's worth it.
