How does the Clarisonic Mia FIT sonic facial cleansing brush work?

This sonic facial brush uses a patented sonic oscillation technology providing a gentle back and forth movement that when used with water, effectively removes dirt, makeup and oil from your pores and the surface of your skin. All of the Clarisonic devices are tested by dermatologists, and are suitable for sensitive skin and are so gentle that they can be used twice a day. Clarisonic Mia FIT Sonic Facial Cleaning System

Since the Mia FIT is 100% waterproof, you can use it in the shower or in the bath for a luxury spa session at home. All you need to do is to apply your favorite cleanser to the brush head, select whether you want a delicate or a power cleanse and then commence your cleanse and exfoliation session using small circular movements on your skin. You will receive an sample size (30ml) of the Clarisonic high foaming cleansing milk with your purchase (contains licorice root, peppermint and gingko biloba), but you can use your own favorite cleanser if you prefer.

If you haven’t used a sonic facial brush before, then you might like to take advantage of the one minute pre-programmed pulsing timer which beeps to tell you to move to the next area on your face. This makes sure that you don’t damage your skin by spending too long in one area. Keeping the integrity of your skin intact and avoiding any damage to your skin is important to Clarisonic, so the brush heads vibrate rather than rotate (many other facial brushes rotate). If a brush head rotates it can stretch and age your skin over time, however sonic vibrations don’t injure your skin at all (the vibrations are similar to a sonic toothbrush).

Clarisonic Mia FIT Sonic Facial Cleaning System - aquaAnother great benefit of exfoliation is that it removes the layer of dead skin cells and other debris that blocks your pores. This debris creates a firm barrier on your skin, preventing your skin care products from being absorbed through this layer and into your skin. Once this barrier is removed however, your moisturizers and serums can be more easily absorbed into your skin, letting them do their work keeping your skin clean, hydrated and radiant.

As it is so gentle, you can use the Clarisonic Mia FIT sonic facial cleansing brush twice a day, helping to keep your skin beautifully clean and gorgeous all day long. FYI: You can purchase replacement or different brush heads for the Clarisonic Mia FIT online for around $20 to $30; the Mia FIT itself costs currently around $200.


Customer reviews of the Clarisonic Mia FIT sonic facial cleansing brush

Most customers love the Clarisonic Mia FIT sonic facial cleansing brush. They like that it is so compact and small, and that it leaves their skin feeling fresh, smooth and clean. However, a few have found that it’s too gentle and don’t feel that their skin has had a good clean – although most would disagree.


Comparing the Mia FIT, Alpha FIT, Mia 1 and Mia 2

If you are not sure which of the Clarisonic facial cleansing systems is best for your skin, here is a quick comparison between the Alpha FIT, Mia FIT, Mia 1 and Mia 2.


Clarisonic Alpha FIT

The Clarisonic Alpha FIT is a men’s sonic face brush that is designed for men’s skin. It removes oil, sweat and dirt from your skin, giving you a closer shave, cleaner beard and smooth, healthy looking skin.  When you use the Alpha FIT daily, you should see a reduction in irritated skin from shaving and fewer ingrown hairs.

Mens Clarisonic Alph FIT

Clarisonic has found that 100% of men experienced  cleaner skin, smaller pores and a more comfortable shave after using the Alpha Mia. It’s 100% waterproof and can be used in the shower. There are 2 speeds – one for use on beards and the other on clean shaven skin. Basically, it’s the same as the Mia FIT, but has been designed for men. Online reviews are pretty good. 


Clarisonic Mia FIT

With 2 power settings, one for delicate skin and the other for a power cleanse, there is little difference between the Alpha FIT and the Mia FIT. Except for the colors – the Alpha FIT comes in dark grey and the Mia FIT in pink, aqua or white, they appear to be nearly identical. Although the settings for the Mia Alpha have been designed for men and those on the Mia FIT for women.

Clarisonic Mia FIT Sonic Facial Cleaning System


Clarisonic Mia 1

The Clarisonic Mia 1 is available in hot pink or white and it only has one speed setting; it’s rechargeable via a USB charger and has a one year warranty.  It uses the same patented sonic technology as the Mia FIT and Alpha FIT and is gentle enough to be used twice a day. With only one speed setting however, you have no options if the setting is too gentle or too harsh for your skin.


Clarisonic Mia 2

The Clarisonic Mia 2 is more advanced than the Mia 1 having 2 speed settings, rather than just one. This means that you can use the first setting for more delicate or sensitive skin and the second setting for a deeper, everyday cleanse. The Mia 2 is  available in white, lavender, pink and sea breeze, and it’s rechargeable using a USB charger. This is Clarisonic’s Best Seller, outselling the Mia 1, because it has the 2 speed settings.

FYI: As far as cost goes, the Mia FIT and the Mia Alpha are around the same $200 mark, the Mia 1 is currently around $120 and the Mia 2 is around $150.


Overview of the Clarisonic Mia FIT sonic facial cleansing brush

The Clarisonic Mia FIT sonic facial cleaning brush offers you two different speed settings, one for a delicate cleanse and another for a deeper cleanse. Compared to the Mia 1 and Mia 2, the Mia FIT is much more compact and easier to take travelling with you in your hand luggage.Clarisonic Mia FIT Sonic Facial Cleaning System

The Mia FIT uses the same technology as the other Clarisonic sonic brushes, and they are all USB rechargeable, but the Mia FIT is more expensive than either the Mia 1 or Mia 2. The Mia FIT simply looks really cute and works well.

Your skin will look cleaner and feel much fresher and healthier, when you use a sonic facial cleansing brush. Don’t forget that the brush heads for all of the Clarisonic sonic facial cleansing brushes are generally interchangeable and need to be replaced every 3 to 4 months to keep them working effectively.

There is a great selection of brush heads available online, from a deep pore facial brush head to a sensitive facial cleansing brush head and an acne facial cleansing head or even a luxe cashmere high performance cleanse brush head. They all tend to be around the $20 to $30 dollar mark.

Exfoliating Foot Peel Mask For Soft & Smooth Feet – Review

It’s not always easy keeping the dry skin on your heels at bay, but the Exfoliating Foot Peel Mask by Vena Beauty fits the bill nicely. Most of us try to exfoliate our feet on a regular basis, but the results are usually not what we had hoped for!  Pumice stones, hard skin removers, foot soaks, coconut oil, moisturizers and wearing socks in bed – all can help to some degree, but if you don’t keep on top of the problem, you can end up with very painful cracked heels.
