Review:  Clarisonic Mia 2

Everyone has heard of the Clarisonic face brush.  But it is crazy expensive, and hesitating before buying one is definitely normal.  I was in the same boat before I splurged, and I shall define my experience with my Mia in some quick prose.  (FYI:  I have oily, acne-prone skin.)

Pros:
decimates my blackheads (I previously owned the Olay face brush, which is really not comparable. The price difference is tempting, but alas.)
it’s spin action is unique and other brushes such as the Olay face brush are not as effective as the Mia’s use of sonic technology 
charges easily
small
durable
brush head is easy to remove for cleaning
with how effective it is, you can use it less often and still see a brilliant result

Cons:
expensive
it is an exfoliating treatment, so one must be careful not to use it too often.  I recently read an article on Refinery29 where dermatologists said that their patients who used the Clarisonic too often (more than once or twice a week) had thinning skin.  Too much of a good thing can be bad.
I like to use my biore pore unclogging scrub with my clarisonic, but the beads do get stuck in the bristles afterwards and are difficult to rinse out.
Overall, I love my Clarisonic.  I only use it every Friday evening, and it has eliminated my blackheads like nothing else.  Because I only use it once a week, I have yet to replace my brush head since I bought my Clarisonic many months ago.  I would highly, highly recommend this brush, but be sure to use it sparingly!
