In all my adventures as a beauty blogger there are only a handful of items that I can say have truly changed my world. And there’s been one item in particular that doesn’t get enough screen time so today I’m dedicating this entire post to my beloved Clarisonic MIA.
Product: MIA (the travel Clarisonic cleansing tool)
Range: Original Clarisonic, Clarisonic MIA, Clarisonic MIA 2, Clarisonic Plus
Price: Ranges from $140 – 225 CAD (via Sephora.ca)
Availability: Sephora, Clarisonic website, select online retailers.
Would I repurchase: Absolutely yes!
My Clarisonic MIA is the longest standing beauty item I’ve used in my skincare, ever since I brought it home more than 3 years ago, it has never left my side. While it sounds deceivingly simple, (after all it’s just a brush for your face right?) there’s a lot more to this beauty gadget. I purchased this during the height of the hype, quite frankly I had no idea what to expect from this and had absolutely no idea it would change my beauty routine the way it has.

ALL THE DETAILS
Unlike the full sized Clarisonic, the MIA version has a little charger “cap” which magnetically locks onto the end of the brush and starts working as soon as it’s powered up. For me, it’s much more convenient as I don’t have to find a permanent space for a dock. After probably hundreds of charges, the battery is still going strong as ever to my great surprise and delight, somehow I fully expected the recharge power to go down significantly after all these years but Clarisonic took care to make sure that your experience is not a fleeting love affair.
I think that there is this over hype in the beauty community that the Clarisonic is the end all and be all of your beauty routine. It is not. And there is also the further misconception that it’s a overnight miracle worker, which it is also not. You have to use it consistently and patiently, the results will show itself in months not days and even then it’s not something that will work equally on every single person. But now as I look to my own skincare regime I do have my Clarsonic to thank for making everything smoother, tighter, brighter and happier.
What do you all think?
