Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing Brush – Does it really make your skin smoother and more radiant?

Beautiful healthy glowing skin is something that I think most woman want. Me included? My skin is getting to the point where I am happy with it but there are still a few problems areas. So when I see skincare products and tools which have great reviews and seem to be quite effective, I’m always keen to try them out.
One of these tools getting great reviews, is the Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing brush, so in my pursuit of beautiful healthy glowing skin, I just had to give it a try.

Description
Clarisonic describes the Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing Brush as a ‘Lightweight, compact sonic facial cleansing brush with 2 speeds: Delicate’ and ‘Universal’. Ultra-effective facial cleansing removes dirt, oil and makeup 6 x better than your hands alone. The Clarisonic Mia 2 gives you a gentle and thorough sonic facial cleansing experience at home or on the go.The patented Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Brush uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to deeply cleanse the skin far more effectively, yet more gently, than traditional superficial cleansing or simple rotating brushes. The result is noticeably smoother, more radiant skin.’

After reading that, I was extremely keen on trying out the Mia 2, who doesn’t want smoother, more radiant skin? And as usually my overactive brain butted in and left me with a few questions:
1) Is It really 6 times more effective than manual cleansing?
2) Is there a noticeable difference to the skins appearance?
3) How long does it take to see a visible difference in the skins appearance?

My experience
The packaging is simple and functional. The box contains:
– the Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing brush
– travel case for the Mia 2
– charger for the Mia 2
– And a refreshing Gel Cleanser
The directions are self-explanatory and is even illustrated on the box for ease of use. I loved that cause it avoided me having to read through the manual.
The Mia 2 itself is lightweight and oh so pretty in pink. I have sensitive skin, so I opted to use my usual cleanser as opposed to the provided gel cleanser.
To use, I wet my face as well as the brush head a little. The brush is waterproof so you can use it in the shower. I add cleanser to the brush and switch it on. My skin is sensitive, so I use it on the ‘Delicate’ speed. Once the Mia 2 is switched on, it remains on for 60 seconds before it switches off automatically. Your 60 second timer guides you in how long to use the brush on each facial zone:
– 20 seconds on the forehead
– 20 seconds on the nose and chin
– 10 seconds on the right cheek
– 10 seconds on the left cheek
Rest assured you don’t have to count the seconds while using the Mia 2, there is slight buzzing sound that alerts you to move on to the next zone.
The brush is so gentle on your skin you barely feel it. You know it’s there but it doesn’t hurt or apply pressure.

My thoughts
I’ve been using the Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing brush for the past 2 months, so what are my thoughts?
The Good
It’s extremely light weight and easy to use. I travel very often, so travel case comes in very handy. The battery is very efficient, one full charge lasts me about 3 weeks, using once daily.
After my first time using the Mia 2 my skin felt smoother. I was extremely taken back, I didn’t expect results so quickly. After one use, you can feel the difference in your skin. After using the Mia 2 for 2 weeks, my skin was visible smoother. My skin felt cleaner and lighter. And after using the Mia 2 for two months, I’ve noticed the following:
– my skin feels and looks significantly smoother
– my skin especially around my cheeks and nose area appears to be more clear and radiant
– after an initial reaction, I have not had a single breakout. Not even a little bump
But one of best things about the Mia 2 is that it removes makeup effortlessly. I use eye makeup remover just on my eyes but for the rest of my face I just use the brush as directed and your makeup just dissolves. No makeup remover required.
The Bad
There is no bad, just something to note. Like with most new products, your skin does react after the first few uses. Don’t be alarmed, it’s temporary and your skin adjusts and restores itself pretty quickly.
The Ugly
There’s definitely no ugly.
