after 2 months of clarisonic mia2: my review

I've been using the Clarisonic Mia2 for the past 2 months, and I have been pretty pleased with the results. I have been changing up my routine over the weeks and tried different ways to optimize my skincare routine, and here's my take. 

I personally use the Mia2 only about 4 times a week- never twice a day. I find it too harsh for daily use. I tried it for a few times at the start, once in the morning and once at night. My skin felt really sore afterwards, so I decided to use it less frequently.

One of the best ways that I love using Mia2 is with my Garnier face wash with salicylic acid. I use the face wash with only 2% salicylic acid, so it's not too harsh. Instead, it gives a nice minty feel and it's perfect for a perk-me-up in the morning.

For me, I avoid scrubbing near my eye. I realized that the area near my eyes, even the skin of my eyebags, are extremely sensitive, and scrubbing near them hurts a lot.

My skin did not become much different, so I was quite realistic with my expectation. My skin felt much cleaner and it serves as a good exfoliator and replaces my scrub.

I would say that the Clarisonic Mia2 was worth the investment, and I've only charged it once since I bought it. The brush still looks as good as new, so I believe that that the whole kit will last a pretty long time. This will maximize the cost, making it more economical. Definitely something good to have!
