A Deeper Clean With Clarisonic

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Clarisonic and Her Campus Media. All words and opinions are my own.

If there's one brand that I've been wanting to try out for years, it's Clarisonic. I mean it's just everywhere and the most intriguing part is that I've heard nothing but great things about it! How can I not be curious? Lately my skin has been breaking out from the stress of college so it was the perfect time to try something new and luckily I got the opportunity to try out the Mia 2 Deep Pore set!

The set includes the Deep Pore Daily Cleanser, Deep Pore Detoxifying Clay Mask, and of course the Mia 2 in a pretty blue color and the Deep Pore Brush Head which has two speeds. Just in case you've never heard of the Mia 2, it's a sonic cleansing device which provides a deeper clean with it's brush. What's unique about Clarisonic compared to just washing your face with your hands is that it cleans your face 6x better and results in cleaner skin. It's also gentle enough to use twice a day - even on sensitive skin and works for all skin types.

When I first got it out of the box, I realized that I had to charge it for 18 hours before my first use and as strange as this sounds, I actually found the magnetic charging device so unique and modern! Since the Mia 2 is waterproof, it has no plug so the charging device is magnetic and simply attaches onto the handle and glows solid when it's fully charged.

After it was charged, I first wet the brush and my skin (make sure to remove eye makeup before doing this) and then patted some of the daily cleanser on my skin. Don't rub in the cleanser since the brush is going to do that work for you. Since this was my first time using the brush, I chose to put it on the low speed and was surprised to find that it actually has a timer which I never knew about! It automatically pauses and makes a beeping sound when it's time to move onto another section of your face! I thought that was genius since I can't really tell if I'm washing my face too much when I'm just using my hands. The timer is set to one minute so it's 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose/chin, and 10 seconds on each cheek.

The Results 

The brush was super gentle and it almost felt like nothing was happening because of how soft it was! Once I was done I remember thinking to myself: "that's it?!" cause the entire process was so quick and simple. Yet once I washed off the cleanser at the end, I instantly knew that I would never go back to washing with my hands again. I'm not sure how to describe it, but my skin was glowing and tingly and felt much more clean than it has in ages. You can tell that the brushes cleaned much more than the surface of my skin. Afterwards I put on my usual moisturizer and noticed that the moisturizer just seemed to glide on and seemed to soak in and dry quicker than it has before.

After my first day, I noticed that there was less oil on the t-zones of my face and once I got to day three, I noticed that those pesky blackheads on the sides of my nose that I can never get rid of was finally gone. After a week, some of the bumps around my forehead had completely disappeared and the large pores on my nose looked A LOT smaller than they were before.

Overall, I'm so happy that I was able to try this product because it's going to be a staple in my skincare routine. I just can't imagine going back to washing my face with my hands cause it's just not the same! I highly recommend giving the Mia 2 a try, especially if you have troubled skin or just obsessed with beauty products like I am. Plus it could be a great gift for a loved one's birthday or if you want to start planning out Christmas gifts in advance.

Clarisonic was kind enough to provide a 15% off coupon code if you feel like purchasing the Mia 2 set. The code is "HERCAMPUS" and is valid through October 31.

Thanks for reading,
