Questions & Answers for Clarisonic Mia2™ Skin Cleansing System

Question
Do people use this everyday?
I am mostly just curious because I recently bought the sephora $5 face cleanser brush and I have to give my skin a rest because I now have a really dry flaky patch on my cheek. Then again, my face is generally pretty dry, especially this time of the year.

It depends entirely on your skin. Since your skin is dry, maybe try using it once a night as others have stated since that is when your skin heals during that period. I recently had a facial at Bliss and the esthetician told me to use it once at night with the sensitive brush head, but since I have combo/oily skin, it just wasn't enough so I switched back to using it twice a day. I know people with the same skin type as me, and they use the deep pore brush head, and I tried that, and did it put a toll on my skin! Couldn't use the device for a week. So it totally depends on what your skin is telling you.

I have super sensitive skin, but I use my Mia twice a day because I love how smooth my skin feels and how great makeup looks after using it. When I initially did this with the standard sensitive brush head, my skin got a little dry so I switched to the delicate with philosophy's purity face wash and it works perfect. Switch to the delicate brush head if your noticing any flaking or sensitivity to the Mia. Hope this helps!

I use it everyday, only once a day at night. The day we went to cut down our christmas tree, I was out in the cold wind all day - which always give me red, blotchy, flaky cheeks - I skipped that night, and I was fine to use it the next day. Its like anything else - see how your skin reacts. The gentle brush is pretty gentle, though.

I have sensitive skin - sometimes blotchy wtih flaky patches. I only use my Mia2 at night to wash off the dirt and makeup of the day - and allow my nighttime products to do their job better. In the morning, my face still feels clean, so I use a very mild cleanser and a splash of water. Using once a day has given me noticibly softer smoother skin,.

yes, because the Mia2 makes your skin look healthier, not just good. lots of people say that it made them break out, which it will because their skin is not used to that kind of cleansing because the Mia2 gets a deeper clean and better clean than with your hands. if your current skin care routine is working for u that's fine but I would recommend going a step further and purchasing it even though it is a splurge

answer 2
If what you are doing already is working well, you may not want to change your routine. However, I really like the Mia2 and it was worth the purchase to me because I'm always afraid that I won't get all of my makeup off of my face at night; this takes care of that. If you decide to give this system a try, I recommend starting out only using it at night to see how your skin reacts. I had to buy a delicate brush head because my skin is very sensitive; it has worked well for me with at-night-only use.

A lot of people say that they broke out when they started using this system and I wonder if they are being too rough with it. You barely need to touch your skin with the brush for it to work. Applying even a little pressure could irritate the skin. Also, the brush that comes with it may be too rough for the user.

Sorry for rambling, I'm trying to be thorough to help with your decision.

No! please don't!

I have had near perfect skin since adolescence, but got this brush because I thought it would get rid of a few small blackheads around my nostrils. I used it for almost 3 months, and it did not help this issue but did give me really weird, unpredictable (AND CONSTANT) pimples in weird places (cheeks, forehead, etc) that I had never before experienced.

After 2 weeks not using the darn thing they're starting to clear up....

I had pretty good skin before I got my Clarisonic (I only got one or two blemishes a month) and I still think it was worth the buy. It makes my skin feel so much better and it also helps it absorb anything I put on after using. I actually have pretty dry skin which makes it good for clearing any dry patches but with combination skin I can see it working to clear out pores and make your face feel fresher.

The regular Mia only has one speed and does not beep or pause when it is time to move to a new section on the face (important for even cleaning s to not overstimulate the skin and possibly cause irritation). Mia2 has, you guessed it, two speeds and the t-zone timer. It also has a really cool light that Kerry's you know what speed if is on and when it needs charging. You can also use it as a flashlight if your lights ever go out!! J/k on the last one!

My aesthetician says I have quite good skin for my age (47). But since I've been using the Mia2, it seems that my skin care products are working better. I know it's hard to believe, but it feels as though my skin care products are absorbing better. Every now and then I'd have a little breakout, but even those or happening less frequently.

The directs say to not use any product with exfoliating beads/shells (I believe that it would get into the mechanics and cause problems). I have continued to use my gentle drugstore cleanser and have been happy with it. It comes with a sample of the Clarisonic cleanser, but I figured switching to using the brush was a big change and it's not a good idea to switch multiple factors at once in case of a bad reaction.

It comes with the sensitive one. I believe the sensitive brush head is perfect, especially for first time users. The clarisonic does clean really deep which your skin is most likely not used to so the sensitive brush head is perfect for starting out. When you receive/buy your clarisonic it comes with a $25 off coupon when you spend $50 so you're basically getting half off your next purchase, which, of course you can use to buy new brush heads! Hope this helped:)

Yes, you can choose a from a few brush heads. I can't remember what mine came with but I buy the sensitive replacement heads for it. Remember, you don't need to apply pressure to your face when using the Clairisonic. Run it lightly along your skin without applying pressure so you can reap the benefits of the pulsating cleaning style. Check the web for tutorials.

Since my husband and I both use it, we seem to be charging the Clarisonic quite often...seems like once a week or so. I just wait until the gadget runs out of juice and then charge it.

I use mine about 3 minutes per day. In the evening I sometimes go an extra minute. Similar to the Sonic Care toothbrush the device will sort of buzz just prior to shutting off to alert you that it is time to charge. It won't be completely dead but I will usually put it on the charger until it is time to use it again. I honestly don't pay attention to how long it is on the charger but I would say it is >12 hours. I can go another week before it buzzes again. I have only had it 3 weeks so I cannot say if the battery is optimal but it seems to be functioning well.

Don't keep it on the recharge after each use, it will deplete the overall life of your battery. Didn't know it had 24 minutes. Thanks for the info. If you use it once a day (one minute a day), count 23 or 24 days (about 3 weeks) set the reminder on your phone to charge the Mia.

The Mia2 has an automatic timer which is useful for knowing when to switch to the different parts of my face. This way, I can gently use it AM & PM, even though the one minute interval always seems so short. If it didn't have a timer, like the Mia, I would probably try to use it for too long, and I'm guessing that might irritate my skin.

I think it really depends on your skins sensitivity. I use it in the morning and before going to bed, and haven't had any problems. If anything, I've noticed my complexion is smoother and my skin tone is more even. Best thing to do is purchase it and try it out, if the brush is too harsh for your skin type, you can always buy the brush head for delicate skin.
