Hey y’all! I just received this complementary Clarisonic Mia 2 Deep Pore device and I am so excited to share it with you! For a background of my skin, I have oily skin and my face tends to break out, mostly on my forehead. To test out the product itself, I did a seven day trial where I used it for seven days in a row as my facial cleanser to see how my skin improved.
You can see that I have some redness, some little breakouts and large pores, mainly around my nose. I’m just realizing it now, but I have some freckles on my face- I’ve always wanted those!
These are super close-up-no-makeup pictures and I feel super vulnerable right now, but that comes with the territory of having a blog. Mainly, my hope for this product is to make my pores look smaller and maybe clean up some of the breakouts on my skin. (Also, don’t mind the scratch on my nose- I basically scratched it with my watch by accident…)
I really love this Clarisonic. I used to have the Mia 1 and it was great. Clarisonic has always been one of my favorite brands and I will always love it. This device acts as a great facial cleanser and it cleans up to 6X better than your hands alone- how awesome! Clarisonic was only invented in 2004, so they’ve been around for about 12 years now, but they sure have made a name for themselves. The goal for the company is to reveal healthy and younger-looking skin. Who doesn’t love that?!
This product specifically comes with the Mia 2 Device, Deep Pore Daily Cleanser, Deep Pore Detoxifying Clay Mask, and the Deep Pore brush head. Clearly this product is geared towards deep cleaning and removing excess oil. The great thing about this product is that it has two speeds. One is universal and the other is a delicate speed for the sensitive skin gals (ME!). It is waterproof and it has a timer for 60 seconds.
To achieve results, all you need to do it use this device for 60 seconds per day and you’re all set! The directions say to use it twice a day, so I use it in the morning to clean my face and at night to wash off my makeup. The mask and cleanser included further the cleansing. This is a great gift idea for the upcoming holidays and birthdays! I got my first Clarisonic for Christmas one year and it was one of my favorite gifts.
Also, if y’all are interested, I have a coupon code for you! The 15% off code is HERCAMPUS. This coupon code expires October 31.
The thing that I love about this product is how gentle it is on my skin. As you can see, I already have some redness in my skin, and literally everything irritates it. I use the “Gentle” speed for my sensitive skin. At first, it felt kind of weird using a Clarisonic, but after a few days, you’ll get used to it. Just put the device flush against your skin and don’t press too hard.
On this last picture, my roommate walked in on me taking pictures for this post, so I decided to include this pic- this is Emily.
Overall, I love this Clarisonic. I think that my skin did improve and it looks healthier to me. I have less breakouts and that’s an A in my book.
My only complaint is that sometimes the face-wash gets in my eyes if I put too much water on the device when using it. Honestly, it’s probably something I’m doing wrong, though. Let me know your number one skin care must have!
