L'oreal's Clarisonic system combines beauty and breakthrough technology to bring about healthier, younger and more radiant skin. This patented system uses gentle sonic frequency micro massage waves to cleanse and infuse skin better. The key benefits include optimal skin and anti-aging effects; helping with oily skin, acne, large pores, sensitive skin and uneven skin tone so as to bring about brightness and radiance.
When a few lady friends began gushing about this amazing product (and they don't know each other), I did some research on this interesting device, and decided to get one to try. The newest ones are Clarisonic Mia 2, Mia 3 and Aria - the latter two products come with 3 speeds while Mia 2 comes ith 2 speeds.
I got Mia 2 to try. It is around SGD$200.00, not that much cheaper compared to Aria (which comes with an extra brush anyway). When I opened up the magical box, there was the Clarisonic itself (in white), the charger, a travel case as well as a small tube of their house brand cleansing gel.
For the first time, do charge the Clarisonic for 24 hours - it should last up to about 24 uses. The light on the Clarisonic handle will blink slowly when it is charging; once it is fully charged, the light will be steady and unwavering.
Press the button to select the desired speed - watch the rotation of the brush in above video. It is gentle and slow, with a soft whirring sound to it, giving it an almost hypnotic effect.
You may apply your cleansing foam directly onto the brush, or onto your face first. Then press the brush gently onto the skin and rotate it in small circular movements, shown in this above video. Start with the forehead or cheek, it's fine; each press of the button should last for about 10 seconds, so it should take about a minute to cleanse the entire face.
The gentle pulsation of the sonic waves on the face is soothing, and skin feels clean after cleansing indeed. The brushhead is detachable as well, so it makes for easy washing. In fact, the entire Clarisonic is waterproof so it is safe to use in the bathroom. It is also recommended to change the brush every 2-3 months.
Not convinced or satisfied? They offer a 30 day 100% money back guarantee. I don't know - I have been using it, and have no intention of refunding anything because it is good thus far. It is easy and fun to use, convenient to bring out, and does it job very well I feel.
