My Clarisonic Mia

Last month I entered a giveaway at the uber fabulous Midtown Girl blog, and (gasp!) I won! The prize? A Clarisonic Mia for both myself and my bestie.


I'd heard a bit about the Clarisonic Mia from friends, so I was really excited to have won. It arrived in just a few days--and then I got completely distracted and the box sat in my living room for about a week. I finally opened it last night and I can't believe I waited so long! It is THE BEST.

The soft bristles gave my face the best massage, and my skin felt super clean and tight just a couple of minutes after cleansing. I also had a pretty large red patch on the bridge of my nose where a pimple was developing, and the redness was reduced to practically nothing. I swear, my fingers never gave such good face. The Mia is a welcome addition to my cleansing routine.

So here's my routine:
I dampened my face and the Mia with warm water, then applied a sizeable amount of the accompanying cleanser to the brush. Turning the Mia on, I gently moved the brush over my face, starting with my cheeks, then moving to my chin and finally my forehead. After cleansing, I rinsed my face with cold water so the pores would close, then dabbed it dry with a white wash cloth (I learned in college never to use colored cloths on my face as the dyes can be harmful).

I was lucky enough to win my Clarisonic Mia, but you can learn more about it and/or purchase yours here. It's a bit of an investment at $149, but it is one that will be well worth it!
