There are several types of Clarisonic systems in the market – Mia, Classic and Plus. Mia is the smallest size with single speed. Classic is the original system with two speeds while Plus is the advanced system with three speeds for the face and a body mode. I understand that currently Sephora Singapore has the Classic and Plus, but not the Mia.
This is how I use my Clarisonic Mia:
First of all, I remove my makeup by hand using a makeup remover. Then, I wash my face with clear water before I apply the facial cleanser on my face. I wet the brush head slightly with water, press the on/off button and gently move the brush using a small circular motion. I begin with forehead, then moving on to my nose, chin and lastly my cheeks.
The timer in Mia is set at one minute so it will automatically shut off after that. You don’t have to worry about “over-washing”. I use it once a day at night now and will gradually increase to two times daily. I find that the brush works best with foamy clanser.
Be careful not to wet the brush head too much. Otherwise, the soapy water will drip and goes into the eyes.
Care and Maintenance:
This little engine needs some maintenance too. After every use, I rinse the brush head thoroughly with water to remove all the soap. Once a week, I wash it with antibacterial soap. Clarisonic recommends that the brush head to be changed every 3 to 4 months.
Here’s my verdict:
Ever since I stopped facial treatments at beauty salon, this is the first time I feel my pores so clean. My skin feels softer and smoother after every wash. It doesn’t cause any break-outs and it does not leave my face dry.
The best part of Mia is that it is water-proof – I can even use it in shower or bath tub. It is so gentle and easy to use. The only little problem is that it gives a ticklish feeling when I’m cleaning my nose due to the vibrations.
Overall, I find that it’s a good investment, especially for busy mothers like us. With Clarisonic Mia, we can achieve the effective cleaning at home even without visiting the beauty salon that costs us a bomb.
I SO look forward to using it everyday.
