I had received a Clarisonic Mia 2 from my husband in January. I have been using it for almost 3 months now and I am super satisfied with it! For those who don’t know what a Clarisonic brush is, this is an electric cleaning brush for your face. This beauty gadget ensures that make-up residues, dirt, and sweat are removed from your face. Your large pores will also become less visible.
I was very curious about the Clarisonic Mia 2. It is very important that you clean your face well, this ensures that creams are better absorbed by the skin so that it also works better.
Also when applying make-up such as foundation is a lot easier. So I was super excited when I finally got my hands on the Mia2!
The box also contains a manual, a charger, and a travel case.
I also found the travel case a plus, this way I can take it everywhere without it getting dirty or damaged.
Clarisonic Mia VS Aria
There are several Clarisonics for sale, I chose the Mia 2 because it is a bit smaller than the Clarisonic Aria and because the Mia2 comes with a travel case. The Clarisonic Aria comes with a stand where you can put the brush on so that it can dry. This is of course also very useful!
There were some more differences between these 2 products. Firstly the Mia has 2 positions and the Clarisonic Aria has 3 positions. The mia 2 has a cleaning session of 1 minute while the Clarisonic Aria has a cleaning session of 2 minutes. But you can easily solve this by doing 2 sessions in a row with the Mia, and then you have 2 minutes.
The Clarisonic Aria also comes with a USB charger, I didn’t think this was a ‘must’ though.
The Clarisonic Mia 2 is completely waterproof and has 2 positions, namely, low and normal.
You can change the brush just like an electric toothbrush. There are several types of brushes available for the Clarisonic. In total there are 12 brushes. The main reason is that there are many skin types.
Types of bruhes
1. Smart Dynamic Brush Head
2. Smart Turbo Body Brush Head
3. Radiance Brush Head
4. Normal Brush Head
5. Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head
6. Delicate Brush Head
7. Acne Cleansing Brush Head
8. Sensitive Brush Head
9. Body Brush Head
10. Velvet Foam Body Brush Head
11. Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head
12. Satin Precision Brush Head
I use the sensitive brush because I have sensitive skin and don’t want my skin damaged. According to the Clarisonic manual, you have to change the brush every 3 months.
A downside of the Clarisonic Mia 2 is that after 24 minutes of use you have to recharge it for 18 hours. I think this is quite long, while 24 minutes is not!? Charging is quite simple though. The charger simply clicks on the handle of the brush by means of a magnet. You can see from the charging indicator lights when the Mia is fully charged and the lights will then light up continuously.
How I clean my face
Before bed, I first clean my eyes with cotton pads and eye make-up remover. I do this by pressing the pad on my eyelids for a few seconds so that it can retract and then I gently rub my eyes clean. When doing so I become a beautiful panda ! Thankfully it’s just for a few seconds.
Afther cleaning my eyes and me face I get the Clarisonic Mia2. As a cleaning agent I use Purity from Philosophy. I think this is a very good combination. Purity is a 3in 1 facial cleanser and ensures that all make-up residues break down well.
For a deep clean, the Mia 2 has its own T-timer, which pauses during the 60 seconds to indicate when it is time to move to a different part of your face. I put 20 seconds on my forehead, 20 seconds on my nose and chin, and then you have 20 seconds to run down your cheeks. Sometimes I find this very short and therefore I do another round, which gives me a total of 2 minutes to clean my face.
Then I rinse with semi warm water and gently pat my face dry with a towel. Finally, I use an eye cream and moisturizer.
The Clarisonic Mia 2 is available in the colors, white, pink, and purple. This Beauty gadget costs around 150 euros and the interchangeable brush heads cost 25 euros. (of course, a brush is included) I definitely think it is a good purchase and it makes it so much easier to thoroughly clean your skin.
