As you known, keeping your face-skin clean is most important and it is a first step for facial skin care process. Most of women have routine to cleanse their face-skin by hands and cloth-face with cleansing products. It’s just fine but NOT best because your hands, cloth-face are easy to get dirty and bacteria that sometime cause problems to your skin. Moreover, it is less effective in wiping out pore clogging dirt and oil and of course, you can’t get a deep cleaning when using that old method.
Nowadays care and cleansing facial skin by “hands” (manual cleansing) is still popular but another method is better and more flexible are using facial skin cleansing devices. With these devices, it is not only help you cleanse your face skin faster, easier, cleaner, but also to helping absorption of moisturizer, beauty/skin cream goes deeper. This is a gorgeous facial skin treatment. After using, your facial skin is fresher and smooth feeling. It is specially works well if you need to cleanse your facial skin for make-up or after remove make-up.

Clarisonic Mia 2
If you care about the best skin cleansing devices, I am sure you known about Clarisonic Mia 2. This is one of some premium products line and most popular than other. It was popular because it is suitable for all your individual needs.
Below are Clarisonic Mia 2 Reviews of Kate – a famous blogger write about hair and beauty, you can visit her blog at www.thesmallthingsblog.com
When compare to other such as: with Clarisonic Mia is only one speed for all skin type while Mia 2 has two speeds and it has a little smaller than Clarisonic Aria; for Clarisonic Plus used for face and body but so “bulky” and the price is high too. I feels that Mia2 is best clarisonic for your daily facial cleansing! You can read my In-Depth Clarisonic Mia 2 reviews here.
Clarisonic Mia2 has advantages:
- Cleansing is very fast and clean.
- Little and portal with travelling case, so you can easy to take it with you for working or travelling
- Two speeds are suited to your “taste”.
- Universal Voltage pLink Charger works for most of country in the world.
- Durable and smart-operation with default time setting for every zone on your face (forehead 20s, nose chin 20s and each cheek 10s).
- May be the down-site of Clarisonic Mia2 is the high price.
The Mia and Mia 2 are the same functions, the only difference between them is that the Mia 2 has two speeds, but both Mia devices are equipped with the faster speed setting. If you feel that one speed is sufficient for what you needs. Mia is best choice and it is most affordable price.
As you see at comparison table above, Aria is equipped three speeds and extra battery operation with a real time battery life indicator for longer to use; dual functioning stand and USB enabled pLink charger. Personally, I think that these are sub-functions and it is not so important.
With Clarisonic Plus, it is not just like Aria but also used for body.
What Clarisonic Models Should I Buy?
As you known, the clarisonic have main function is cleanse your skin but for every kind of models which has some sub-functions that help you comfortable when using as well as suitable for many different kinds of skin types (see my Comparison Table of Clarisonic Models above). So which Clarisonic is best and should get? Personally, I love Clarisonic Mia 2 than other because I just need use for delicate or universal. In addition, its small and portal that help me take it come with for go to work as well as travelling and the price is most reasonable.
Which Clarisonic Brush Head Is Best Suitable?
If this is the first time to use Clarisonic for your facial, I highly recommend using the delicate function and delicate brush head (do not use the default brush head of Clarisonic for the first time to use) because the first time your skin needs to adapt to Clarisonic. Your skin would be break out but do not worry, it will reduce and done after several day to use.
After your skin to adapt with it, you can use other brush head that depend on yourself, your skin or your purpose such as cleanse skin or remove dead skin cells and so on.
The Clarisonic offers the following brush heads: Delicate, Normal, Sensitive, Deep Pore, Body brush head and other Luxe brush heads such as Velvet Foam Body, Satin Precision, Cashmere Cleanse, which feature tapered, ultra-long filaments for mature and dry complexions.
What do other people say?
I then began to use it only once a day (in the morning) and finally felt like my skin evened out. I may have been over-doing it in the beginning but I had to learn somehow!
The first noticeable result was the smoothness of my face. I mean, it’s incredible. I couldn’t stop touching it!
The second noticeable result was the way my makeup applied. My liquid foundation went on smoother, and my makeup seemed fresher.
The third result, which wasn’t noticeable to the eye, was that my facial products were penetrating deeper. I could tell my skin was cleaner than before. I could feel that the cream I would apply to my face would sink in a little deeper.

Most importantly, I highly recommend the Clarisonic to those that wear makeup on a daily basis. The Clarisonic is able to remove debris that might have been missed by another cleansing method such as with a wash-cloth or hands. It supposedly cleans 6x more effective than hands alone based on fluorescent testing by their own research lab (bias?). Also, it will improve the texture of your skin (by removing dead cells) and as a result your makeup will have a smoother application.
