clarisonic mia: inital impressions

| clarisonic mia £120 |

i've had my clarisonic for almost a month now and thought i'd share with you my initial thoughts on it before my full in-depth review in a few months time.

i got my clarisonic mia for £90 from buy-a-powa as a christmas present, it was one gift that my parents just couldn't understand. why could i possibly want a giant facial toothbrush? to be honest i was intrigued. will all of the hype surrounding it and my ongoing quest for perfect skin it was something i just had to own.

the clarisonic basically consists of a vibrating brush head. the fibres of which vibrate at over 300 movements per second and it cleans 6 times deeper than an average cleanse. i've been using this everyday after my facial buffer with my new purity facial wash (review to follow).

my skin has gone through the usual purging phase experienced by most clarisonic users (in my case it's made my skin super spotty, but only in certain patches) in fact at one point it was so bad that i had to stop using my clarisonic for a few days because i just felt so gross and although this seems to be improving slowly i'd have to say that it is lasting for much longer than any people i have spoken to. it's been making me super self conscious but i'm sticking it out now in the hope that eventually i'll get the results i want.

saying that, despite the obvious blemishes around my forehead and chin people have been commenting on how much brighter my skin looks and it definitely feels much cleaner. hopefully once my spots finally clear up my skin will look as bright and fresh all over but until then it's just a case of sticking it out and hoping for the best. i'll be sure to update you again in a few months.

have any of you got a clarisonic?  how is your skin faring?


  1. I look forward to your full review. I have been debating whether to buy a Calrisonic for ages. I'm worried it will make my skin worse rather than better as I get spots on my chin regularly, but would you say it's good for dry flakey skin? I may give it a go :-) Love, V.

  2. I've been wanting one of these for a long time!

    I'll be really interested to hear how you get on with it and whether you think it's worth the money.

    Em :-)

  3. I developed adult acne and I know how you feel, it's awful and makes you feel like utter crap!

    I went to see the doctor and it's finally clearing up now but although I'm keen to try this I just can't face the thought of putting up with spots again!

  4. I have been wanting to jump on the Clarisonic bandwagon for a while, but I am afraid of the "purging" phase described by everyone who's been using it.
    I'm sure it's worth it in the end, but the idea of more spots frightens me a little (I've got more acne spots since I hit 30 than in the whole of my teenage years. And I only hit 30 a year and a half ago!

  5. I really want to try out one :D Birthday list I think!
