You’d think becoming an adult means you get to finally escape the threat of acne. But no, you can’t. My skin is the same today as it was in college; if anything, it gets greasier quicker. The older I get, the more important I realize taking care of it is. Wrinkles are starting to show – how is that even possible when I still feel like a kid? I’ve learned that the best thing for it to truly feel healthy, above any moisturizer I try, is to fully and completely cleanse it.

I have tried loads of types of cleansers over the years, but none have been quite like this. Washing your face with your hands is one thing, but to actually scrub it clean? That leaves you so fresh-faced. And the perfect tool to do just that is the Clarisonic Deep Pore Mia 2.

Why I Love It

First of all, you can take it with you in the bath or shower. I am not a fan of wetting my face down outside of being in the shower because I never fail to get my shirt or hair wet too. The Clarisonic Mia 2 is waterproof, making it super easy to use while you’re washing off.

It has a timer! This might be my favorite feature – it self-times how long you should use it on each portion of your face. No counting seconds, no guesstimating, no clocking yourself – it does it for you.

The feel of it. I’ll be honest, the very first time I used the Clarisonic Mia 2, I might’ve jolted a little before getting used to the feeling! I can be pretty ticklish but I could definitely handle this. It feels like it’s cleaning your face – you feel your skin being gently scrubbed! It has two settings, but I like using it on the lower of the two.

It’s easy to charge. It uses a magnetic charger to power it up, and that charge lasts for such a long time. No attached cord, no base it needs to stand in – just an easy magnetic plug.

The cleanser suds just the right amount. I don’t feel like I have soap dripping off my face, but I definitely feel like it’s a smoother lather than If I was washing my face with my hands. I mean… it literally cleans my face 6 times better than my hands do. You can see it on my face in these pictures – the lather covers my skin, but isn’t dripping down my chin. Pippa also seems to be quite fascinated with it:).

If in the last 12 years, over 15 million of these have been purchased? You know that it’s a quality product – that works. I really just like how easy it is. I don’t feel like it’s an ordeal to wash my face, and I feel oil free after I’m done. My skin feels healthy, which I appreciate so much right now. I know this will be a product I can use for a very long time that keeps my face clean and allows it to feel clean as well

Being that it’s close to the holidays, the Clarisonic Mia 2 would make a great gift for so many people in your life. I wish I had a product like this during my teenage years – something to make face washing easy and productive? Yes, please! Bonus: I get to offer you a discount! Use the code HERCAMPUS to get 15% off until November 20th.

Yes, I was given this product complimentary, but I really can’t reiterate my opinions enough. I really like this product and really think it’s worthwhile.
