I absolutely love trying new skincare tools just as much as the next blogger but the Clarisonic Mia 2 was something that took me such a long time to get into. Two years later and I have finally found a way to love this face brush! The Mia 2 has two speeds; one for normal skin and one for sensitive skin which makes it incredibly universal for everyone especially with the large variety of brush heads. The point of the Clarisonic is to remove dirt and oil to reveal smooth and radiant skin. Supposedly the vibrations allow the brush to clean deeper than your hands or any other tool would.
Initially I was using the brush morning and night but couldn’t get along with it because of the breakouts and dryness I was seeing. Because I was using consistent skincare I knew the Clarisonic was to blame so I stopped using it thus sitting in the drawer for another year. About two months ago I decided to give it another try because my skin was really acting up and my pores were needing a little help! From what I heard, the brush causes breakouts in the beginning because it is cleaning deeper than your skin is used to but once that passes there should be little to no breakouts. So knowing that this is supposed to be “normal” I continued through the breakouts and I am so relieved I did! Now I use it every night (I skin the morning because my skin is too dry) and my skin definitely feels cleaner than ever! I have tried multiple different brush heads but currently loving the luxurious hydrating Cashmere Luxe facial brush.
