Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System Review
The Clarisonic Mia 2 is a great skin cleansing system. It's simple to use and during my testing it resulted in cleaner, brighter, and smoother skin. If you suffer from acne or blackheads the Mia 2 can help. The price may seem a little high, but it's well worth it if the result is better skin.

Ease of Use10
The Good
  • Produces a significant decrease in cystic acne after only one week. It makes skin look much brighter and smoother. It’s travel friendly and comes with a hard plastic case and cap for the brush head. The Clarisonic Mia 2 is Flexible enough that it can be used with ANY facial cleanser. You can also use it in the shower without fear of electrocution.
The Bad
  • You might have to buy a few different brush heads, to find the one that is best for your skin. The charger is magnetic and can slip off easily. It's expensive.
9.1Overall Score

The maker of the Clarisonic Mia 2 claims it will cleanse your face 6 times better than washing with your hands alone. This simple device is supposed to exfoliate, scrub, and cleanse all at once, and claims in a weeks’ time you should notice an evident change in your skin. And in my opinion, that is absolutely true!


I tested the Clarisonic Mia 2 over a 3 month period, and I absolutely LOVE it. Before using the Mia 2, I had cystic acne and blackheads, which are now totally gone. My skin was always oily and now it is even. I was nervous it would totally dry out my skin, but that is not the case at all. It has completely changed my skin for the better!


Getting Started

Before using the Mia 2, you have to charge it for a full 24 hours. It’s super easy to charge- the charger is magnetic and simply “snaps” right onto the front of the handle. Then the opposite end gets plugged into the wall.

It’s also extremely easy to use – simply apply ANY cleanser you choose, either to the brush or right on your face. (I put it directly on the brush). Mia 2 also has a helpful setting- a buzzer for every time you need to switch to a different area on your face in the 1-minute period – 20 seconds on chin/nose, 20 seconds on forehead, 10 seconds on each cheek. It will automatically buzz and pause when you are supposed to change areas on your face. It also has two speeds, I started with the lowest speed for 1 week then moved up to the second speed.


Different Brush Heads Available for the Clarisonic Mia 2:

  • Clarisonic recommends to change the brush head every 3 months. My Mia 2 came with the “Sensitive” Brush Head
  • Delicate Brush Head- Extra Gentle for Extra Sensitive Skin
  • Sensitive Brush Head- Sensitive Skin
  • Normal Brush Head- For clear skin
  • Acne Brush Head- For Acne Prone Skin
  • Deep Pore Brush Head- Big Pore type Skin
  • Body Brush Head- for other parts of the body


Using the Brush

On my very first day of using the Clarisonic Mia 2, I felt instant results. My skin was brighter, smoother and the layer of dead skin was gone. By the end of week 1 my skin was completely different. My chin acne was beginning to shrink and the blackheads were totally gone.


As for the actual scrubbing- one minute sounds like a long time to be rubbing a brush on your face, but in reality, it isn’t. It goes by so fast, and even sometimes I feel like I need to use it for an extra minute.


After the time is up (it automatically ends) I just rinse my face with water, pat dry with a towel and apply moisturizer. To clean the brush, all you have to do is run it under water to get the cleanser and makeup off. Done!


Million Dollar Question- is it Worth Buying?

YES!!! Overall, the Clarisonic Mia 2 is a fantastic skin cleansing system. My face is smoother, brighter and my chin acne is GONE. It has minimized the size of my pores, and cleans my face so well that my makeup absorbs better than ever!
