Beauty Find: Clarisonic Mia

Ladies, I have something really really amazing to talk about today. If you’re following my friend – SY’s blog, you should have heard this beauty gadget before.

It’s the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System, one of the popular products being raved about in Glamour Magazine.

As an introduction, Clarisonic uses sonic technology which creates 300 movements per second for the brush head to provide a facial cleansing experience that no other products in the market can provide. It’s time to throw away our good old face sponges!

It thoroughly removes 6x more makeup and 2x more dirt and oil than manual cleansing using our hands. It cleanses so well that skin care products absorb better, pores appear smaller and with improvement to skin tone and texture. Are you convinced?

I ordered a pink set from SkinStore.com. The usual price is US$149.00. After 20% discount and with USPS International Shipping, the final price is US$134.15. My little pink baby arrived six days after I placed my order.

Let’s meet Clarisonic Mia. The kit comes with a pink cordless Mia, a brush head, a compact charger, a trial size Gentle Hydro Cleanser and a user guide. I quickly glanced through the user guide and I realised that I need to charge the Mia for 24 hours prior to the first use.

So, I quickly attached the charger to Mia and plug it into the power outlet. Much to my dismay, the charger uses a 2-pin blade socket configuration that is different from Singapore’s 3-pin rectangular configuration. I scrambled to find a suitable converter and luckily V has one for me.

I’ve been using my pink Mia for the past three days and I simply love the whole cleansing experience. After washing, I pat SK-II miracle water onto my face. I can feel and hear the pitera oozing into my skin. “Pong, pong, pong!” It feels so great. Okay, I’m exaggerating. It’s fine to chuckle a little.

Clarisonic Mia, she really rocks my world!

I’ll be writing another detailed post about this little engine later this week. Stay tuned!

      Hi Ivana,
      I also read in someone’s blog that SkinStore doesn’t ship to Singapore anymore. 🙁

      You can try to get it from Sephora stores in Singapore. I just bought my replacement brush from Sephora at Marina Bay Sands recently. I saw that they have the Clarisonic Mia too.
