[MY THOUGHTS ON THE MIA 2, BEST SELLING FACIAL SONIC CLEANSING DEVICE] FEAT. CLARISONIC FACIAL CLEANSING BRUSH - TRIED + TESTED


HELLO EVERYONE, 

This is an exciting post because today I will be chatting all about of what I thought about the Mia 2, Facial Sonic Cleansing brush by Clarisonic. (Bear in mind that this was actually my first time testing it out). 

So before getting right into my tried and tested thoughts, you may be curious to know how long 'Clarisonic' has been in the beauty market for? Well, Clarisonic was actually founded by team of scientists and engineers in Seattle, WA, USA in 2001. The company began with a vision to really want to transform skin..hence they brought out a range of facial and body cleansing devices (which took three years and 40+ patents).

I mean before Clarisonic brought out their line of facial cleansing devices, we were relying on manual cleansing for the face and body. And to really measure the differences of manual and automatic - the results are all visible and you can actually feel how cleaner your skin is (with using the facial sonic cleansing brush) as compared to manually cleansing your skin. And it's all thanks to Clarisonic's patented sonic cleansing technology which works well with the skin's natural elasticity, oscillating at a sonic frequency that produces over 300 movements per second. Incredible right? 

INTRODUCING THE MIA 2, FACIAL SONIC CLEANSING BY CLARISONIC 

Say hello to the Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing brush by Clarisonic which is the best selling device so far. There's no need to rely on a washcloth or your manual cleansing routine. My daily skincare routine has changed for the better in less than 2 days of just trying this new cleansing brush out. The new device comes with 2 Speeds, 1 Minute pulsing T-TIMER (which allows you to customise your skin care needs), pLink Charger, Travel case and a 2 year warranty. My first impressions of this device was that it felt super lightweight, compact and so convenient to take with when travelling. Additionally, the device is waterproof and rechargeable which is perfect if you're in the shower and just wanting a quick fix to cleanse your face. (You don't need to spend that long to cleanse your face when it comes to using a facial sonic cleansing brush). 

What sets the Mia 2 Facial Sonic Cleansing brush apart from manual cleansing is that it goes beyond cleansing as it uses sonic technology to gently remove deep down in the pores without any harshness. It feels 100% gentle on skin and there are different brush heads that are catered for each skin type - hence you can personalise the device accordingly to your particular skin type (whether you have oily, normal/combination or dry skin type). And did you know that that Clarisonic actually removes six times more makeup than manual cleansing? I was definitely surprised to learn how much cleaner and clearer it can effectively leave your skin looking and feeling. This is ideal for your other skincare products to absorb much better on the skin. 

After 2 days of using the Mia 2, Facial Sonic cleansing device, I have to agree that it has helped my other serums, moisturisers and toners to absorb much effectively. I have also noted a reduction in my oily areas especially near the T-zone of my face. Right after you've used the cleansing brush, you can actually feel how softer and smoother your skin feels. Since, I have normal/combination skin - my skin can tend to get oily during midday and so what I discovered with using the Mia 2, is that it reduced the oiliness to my forehead which is quite impressive to note. The Mia 2 definitely looks to offer a deep cleanse right into your pores to remove any dirt, debris and oil that may be trapped and can be the main causing factors for having dull looking skin. While you cleanse, the bristles oscillate back and forth to gently dislodge dirt from the pores. The experience of using the Mia 2 is definitely worth it because before I wasn't even sure how effective it could be for my skin. (You never know until you try a new product to understand whether it will or will not work for you).  

Some other facts to consider before using the Mia 2, Facial Sonic cleansing brush is to ensure that you cleanse the brush after every use (by either using baby shampoo/ normal shampoo under running lukewarm water). It's also recommended that you replace your brush head every three months for the best results. Also, at first when you do purchase the Mia 2, make sure that you charge the device for at least 24 hours to ensure better usage of the cleansing device over time. 


OVERALL FEATURES + BENEFITS 
  • 2 speeds (so you can customise it for your skin type) 
  • 2 year warranty 
  • Pulsing T-Timer which means you get an even 60-second cleanse. 
  • Improved user interface - which indicated the speed and charge functions. 
  • Waterproof
  • Rechargeable 
  • The Mia 2 Skincare Cleansing System comes with the Mia 2 Device, Protective travel case and a Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser (30ml). 

HOW TO USE THE MIA 2, FACIAL SONIC CLEANSING DEVICE 
  • Before using the device, ensure that you have it on charged for at least 24 hours. 
  • Ensure that you have the right brush head on the device. To take off the brush head, turn the brush head to the left. To pop the brush head on, simply turn it all the way right until you hear it click which means that it is secured. 
  • Next, ensure that you remove all of your eye-makeup by hand. 
  • Then, apply cleanser directly onto damp brush head. Alternatively, you can apply the cleanser directly to moistened skin. 
  • To turn on/off your device, simply press the lower 'power icon' button on the device. The top button is the speed setting, so you can adjust this accordingly to your skin's needs.  
  • So, once you have turned on your device and selected your speed setting, just follow the T-Timer which prompts while gently moving the brush head in small circular motions. 
  • Apply the brush to the forehead for 20 seconds, 20 seconds on the nose and chin and 10 seconds on each cheek. (In total, the cleansing routine should only take 60 seconds). 
  • Next, rinse your brush head with water water and shampoo or soap. 
  • Rinse your face with warm water. 
  • Leave your Mia 2 cleansing brush to dry by simply popping on the cap for it. (The cap actually has holes for it so it will ensure that it will be protected and dry at the same time). 
  • Your cleansing routine is done! 

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS 

Cleansing has never been so easy and all within 60 seconds. I felt that it was great to keep up with technology and experience a more effective way to cleanse my skin. To know that oil and dirt can still be trapped in your pores after manual cleansing really makes me want to integrate the Clarisonic cleansing device within my day to day skincare routine moving forward for healthier, smoother and glowing skin. Investing in your skin is so important because with results, you'll notice visibly improved results. Well for me, I noticed a much less oily appearance to my forehead which is incredible and I am definitely satisfied with it.
