Clarisonic MIA Arrival & First Impressions
My Clarisonic MIA arrived! Yippee!!! I was overjoyed last Monday morning when the mailman buzzed me to tell me that a parcel awaited in the lobby. To my delight it was from The Shopping Channel.
In my congested and sick state, I couldn't help but jump up and down once I got to open it up. The Clarisonic MIA was packaged with a plastic mailing envelope from The Shopping Channel then boxed up with 2 smaller boxes inside. The smaller of the two included a replacement brush head for normal skin, Refreshing Gel Cleanser for normal/oily skin and Nourishing Care Cleanser for normal/dry skin. The larger box included the MIA, pLink charger and Gentle Hydro Cleanser for all/sensitive skin. All cleansers are 30 mL 1 oz.
I had to wait one more day to finally get to use it since it must be charged for 24 hours prior to first use. However, I still had to blog about this since I was so excited to get it. I'm still a little bummed because it's not pink, but white will do.
The first use was a little odd at first. Mostly because it was a brand new experience for me! It vibrates and rubs gently against the skin. After one use, I did notice the blackheads across my nose were disappearing. Yeah! I also noticed that my t-zone felt oilier within a few hours. This may have been because I had used too much pressure on my skin, stimulating oil production. With less pressure, this problem seemed to stop.
I still have yet to try out the various cleansers that were included in the package. As well, I have yet to experience any long term results since I've only had it for less than a week. Until the full review, enjoy the product pictures :)
