Clarisonic Mia


It’s Friday night… Ah, the exciting life of a beauty blogger! Siting home testing some lip gloss, and I’m about to test something I’m pretty excited about–something I spent a big chunk of change on! Well, kind of. Half of it was purchased with a Sephora gift certificate, which has been burning a hole in my pocket since my birthday waaay back in December. (Thanks, mom!) I finally bought the Clarisonic Mia.

I’m trying to remember how my obsession with the Clarisonic started. I think it was when I read this bomb-ass post from This That Beauty about her skincare regimen. She recommended the Clarisonic–in fact she said it was a miracle and that it saves lives. Then I dug around and read a few other reviews, like my girl Amber’s post over on Beauty Junkies Unite. I realized, hmm, people love this Clarisonic thing. Where have I been? Apparently, everyone found out about it when Oprah declared it one of her Favorite Things. And you know what that means: utter pandemonium.

The Clarisonic Classic will run you $195.00, which… Wow. Is it going to clean my floors, too? Cheap me opted for the Clarisonic Mia, which is pretty much the same thing only in a smaller size and only offers one speed instead of two, but it’s slightly cheaper at $149.00. And that’s where the gift certificate came in handy. Honestly, if I had to pay for the whole thing myself, I think I’d have skipped it. That’s a lot of cash. But I am curious to try it out. So, I’ll be reporting back on the little Clarisonic Mia and will write a full review in a week or so to let you know what I think.

In the meantime, have any of you tried the Clarisonic? And if so, what do you think?
