Clarisonic Plus Face & Body Complete Sonic Cleansing System - 433282
It took me several months to decide whether I should buy the Clarisonic brush, mainly because of the mixed reviews and also because of the price. After now owning it for four months I am still uncertain if I made the right decision as I find that I can only use it on my t-zone, as each time I use it on my cheeks it causes me to develop tiny spots.
I have very oily skin, and despite double cleansing twice daily; and also exfoliating every day I have large pores, and suffer from black heads on my nose and chin. The Clarisonic brush has helped reduce the size of the black heads on my nose, and also insures that after undergoing extraction they re-appear at a much slower pace.
So far I have only used the sensitive brush head, yet even this it seems is too harsh for the skin on my cheeks, and I certainly would never consider using it around my eyes.
I have also used the body brush, but only once and thought that the three minute timer for the body was too short, so ended up using six minutes in total. Personally I find it much more efficient to exfoliate my body with my hands and a good quality body scrub as although the Clarisonic’s body brush head is slightly larger than the one for the face it is still not large enough in my opinion.
The Clarisonic comes with several different cleansers. My favourite is the refreshing gel cleanser as this is a foaming gel, smells lovely, and leaves my skin feeling properly cleansed. Unfortunately the kit only contains a travel size of this cleanser. It also contains two Gentle hydro cleansers (travel & large) however I do not like this due to the fragrance used and the fact that it is non-foaming. In addition to this the kit also contains a travel size cleanser for dry skin (Nourishing Care Cleanser), however I have not yet tried this as my skin is greasy rather than dry. Finally Clarisonic also includes a travel and normal size skin polish which is very nice and I have used without the Clarisonic brush head.
In conclusion after four months use I am still undecided as to whether or not I made the right decision by purchasing the Clarisonic brush. However that I feel is mainly due to the price and the fact that I can only use it on part of my face. Therefore I have given it three stars for minmising my black heads which was the primary purpose of buying it, and I have deducted two stars due to the price and the fact that I can only use it on my T-zone.

an expensive cleansing tool
I bought the mia plus because of the reviews i had read and was really hoping for better results!
Im in my forties and have suffered with acne prone skin for years and believe me i have tried everything.
I would recommend this product if you want your skin to feel unbelievably clean as if you have just had a facial but i cant actually say it has improved my skin.
The only reason im keeping the product is because i bought it on easy pay and it is handy to just leave in the shower to use every day!

I have been using this on my face twice a day now for the last 3 weeks and i can honestly say my skin is glowing !!! (even my partner commented how good my skin looked so it must work !).
I would recommend this to men as well as women. Worth every penny.

Worth every penny and there were a lot of pennies! After using it for a couple of months I became blase and stopped for a week. The difference in my skin was amazing; dry patches returned, pores became blocked, I looked more tired. It just proved how well it really worked. I wasn't mad on the skincare range, nothing wrong with it, but prefer my usual brand. But the brush is one of my best beauty buys and I buy a lot ...
