You’ve probably heard about Clarisonic’s Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing System from your friends. They have their own feedback, but have you heard what the other consumers have to say about this product? Not to worry, we did the research for you, and we’re presenting it here.
But first… here are some basic things you should know about the Mia 1.
Clarisonic’s Mia 1 wants you to ditch your wash cloth to go for deep cleaning with a rotating brush head. This process is called “sonic cleansing,” which is achieved using a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second.
When you unbox your package, expect to find the following items – your Mia 1, a universal charger, a sensitive brush head, and a sample size refreshing gel cleanser. From this alone, you can conclude that unlike Olay’s ProX, the Mia 1 is not battery-operated.
You can choose from four colors – pink, electric pink, gray, and white.
What Clarisonic Claims About the Mia 1
From Clarisonic‘s official website, the Mia 1 is 6x better than washing with your hands alone. After use, Vitamin C is better absorbed by the skin by 61%. If you worry about skin damage, know that daily use of the device has been proven safe and gentle.
These claims are supported by clinical studies, which are posted on this page of Clarisonic’s website. On this page, you can see results of studies related to makeup removal, absorption efficacy, deep pore cleansing, and more…

What Consumers Say About their Mia 1
We’ve scoured all feedback posted on a popular online retailer, and here’s a summary of what consumers say about their Mia 1. It’s not perfect, what with some complaints about the battery’s life, but overall it works.
Overall Quality of Skin: Texture, Large Pores First up, there have been users who noticed an improvement in the overall quality of their skin after regular use. The device leaves their skin feeling soft, clean, and noticeably smoother than before. As for people with large pores, it appears that their Clarisonic Mia 1 has helped them minimize or refine these pores.
Makeup, Cream Absorption, Skin Tone Ladies who use makeup also notice that after using this facial cleansing system, moisturizer and other cream get absorbed better. It also helps even out your skin tone, with several users noticing that their hyperpigmentation gets lighter and less visible after regular use.
Acne Improvement Is it also good for people with acne? While there are a few users who said that the device helped them deal with their acne, there isn’t enough testament to clearly say that the Mia 1 can help stop the red bumps from appearing. Theoretically though, this facial cleansing system can dig deep into the skin and remove all the dirt particles that can cause pimples.
Still on the topic of acne, some users noted that there is a “purging period.” According to them, they experienced breakouts during the first few days of use. Eventually though, they noticed clearer skin.
Complaints Although this device can be used once a day, you may need to reduce your usage frequency because of the possibility of dry skin, as one user has noted. Also, some users noted a problem on their device’s battery life, which became less until it was no longer functioning.
