Does Clarisonic Mia Work? We Reveal The Truth

by Kelly Williams on February 27, 2013


Hi there!

I know that most if not all of us are still looking for the best facial cleansing system that will address our skin sensitivities and issues such as acne, acne scars, blemishes, blackheads and whiteheads, oiliness, and visible pores. I’m sure you can relate otherwise you won’t be here looking for reviews on the Clarisonic Mia. Like you, I seem to be endlessly looking for that one solution for my sensitive skin. So when I heard about this product and all the hype, I knew I’d be digging about it and now here, I’m sharing everything you and I need to know including real user experiences before making a decision to either try or ignore it. 

What Is Clarisonic Mia?

Clarisonic Mia is the smallest Sonic Skin Cleansing System with one button and one speed that is portable and available in eight colors. It uses Sonic Technology, Clarisonic’s patented micro-massage motion that works within the skin’s natural elasticity to gently wipe out impurities and blemishes that other facial cleansers miss.

The device has a spinning brush that exfoliates and vibrates very fast. According to its official website, it uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 motions per second to gently yet thoroughly remove six times more makeup, dirt, and oil than any other cleaning system. It apparently cleanses more deeply, allows better absorption of the facial product you use, reduces breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads, improves the texture of your skin, and leaves your skin softer, smoother, and more beautiful. It is a compact cleansing system that you can use at home and or on the go.


The Clarisonic Mia cleansing kit includes the Clarisonic Mia device, a universal voltage charger, sensitive brush head, and 1 oz. trial size Refreshing Gel Cleanser.

Clarisonic Mia 2

An extension of Clarisonic Mia has also been launched and it’s called Clarisonic Mia 2. It gives you all the benefits of the previous device…it still comes in a compact and easy-to-use design but the Mia 2 gives you two speed options, a one-minute pulsing T-timer, and a protective travel case so you can take it with you if you’re traveling. Mia 2 comes in 12 different colors.

The Mia 2 kit includes Clarisonic Mia 2 device, universal voltage charger, sensitive brush head, 1 oz trial size cleanser, and a protective travel case.

How To Use The System

  1. If you’re wearing makeup, remove it prior to using the device.
  2. Wet your skin with warm water and liberally apply a cleanser of your choice either to your skin or to the brush head.
  3. Push the power button on and gently move the brush in small circular motion for about 20 seconds on the forehead, 20 seconds on the nose and chin, and 10 seconds each for both cheeks. You don’t need to press it on your skin as the brush will do the job.
  4. For first time use, make sure to charge the device for 24 hours. To maintain the Clarisonic Mia, you only have to remove the brush head once a week to wash the handle with warm soapy water to remove any residue buildup.


Directions for using the Mia 2 are the same as the previous device but the T-timer will pulse when it’s time to move and cleanse the next area of your face so you can do the whole face evenly.
