As I washed my face the other night I got to thinking, I haven't written a post about my Clarisonic. One of my skincare staples, the Clarisonic Mia is pretty much the most expensive beauty item I've purchased. (And at just over $100, it better be a daily staple.) I've had it now for over two years—through hundreds of showers, numerous accidental drops and two curious kids. The thing still works; it's a bit worse-for-wear, but it still works and my skin looks better than in has in years.
When I decided to purchase a Clarisonic I chose the most basic and least expensive model, the Mia—which has one universal speed and shuts off after one minute of use. I use it religiously two times a day, morning and night. In the evenings I remove my eye makeup first then use the Mia with a non-abrasive face wash (right now I'm using the Own Skin Health Anti-Aging Rejuvenating Cleanser). The Mia thoroughly removes makeup and excess oil without irritating my skin, which is some sort of miracle because everything seems to irritate my face. This little tool is amazing. Using it two times a day has completely transformed my skin—the textures is smoother and more radiant, and it buffs away any dry spots I have.
I reckon my Mia won't last too much longer but when it dies I'll be headed right out to get another, price be damned. But maybe this time I'll spring for the newer model.
