Default clarisonic

It was expensive and I waited a long time to buy one but it has been amazing for my acne-prone skin. My skin has never been as nice as it has been the past few months using the clarisonic.

Anybody else use it?

I did buy a Mia 2. I didn't see the point in spending more $ on one with several settings I probably wouldn't use anyway. I like it, but I stopped using it for a little while. I need to get back in the routine, but I have been using an exfoliating masque once a week, and I try not to over do it. I was advised to not use the M2 more than 3x a week. 2 is best. It is a deeper exfoliation, and that can wear on your skin if done too often.

It depends on the skin type I think. I have the Mia2 as well ... I got it when it was on sale. The only thing that bothers me is reordering the brush heads.

I found my skin needs it daily or I still get breakouts, but I've suffered them my whole life ... this is the first thing that's really cleared them up.

I have the most basic mia. I love it. My skin looks clearer and brighter when I use it regularly.

I like my Mia a lot too. My face doesn't feel as clean when I don't use it.

I have really sensitive, allergic, rosacea skin. I think I have the Pro. Even with the blue brush (most gentle), it was too much for my skin to use on a regular basis. I should try to use it again--maybe once or twice a week.

It does all depend on your skin type. I'm sensitive as well, and was advised not to over do it. Though they do advise everyone to not exfoliate every day. It's a little too harsh, in the long run, but I know some who do it twice a day.

KathyMack, you might be able to handle once or twice a week. I had no problems with sparse use.

I can only use mine once a week with the delicate brush head, the so called purging phase brought about skin issues I never even had so I try not to use it too much. I do like the clean it provides.

I was looking into getting a clarisonic but am worried it my be to harsh on me. I have extremely sensitive skin and in the past even using buff puffs and similar products leaves my face raw for days. Anyone with sensitive skin having successful use with this?
