Clarisonic Mia, My New Best Friend (Psst…Giveaway!)


Clarisonic Mia Cleansing System, $149

Okay, lovelies. This is one giveaway you don’t want to miss. The Clarisonic Mia has changed the way I look at skin cleansing. (And the way my skin looks!)

Clarisonic sent me a Mia system to review and I’ve been using it for about a month now. Y’all, I love it. My skin glows, my pores are smaller, and I love that it feels like a mini-facial every morning. The one-button, one-speed, one-minute Mia fits perfectly into my otherwise LAZY skin cleansing routine. It’s so easy – just put a little bit of skin cleanser on the brush, hit the button, and move it in small circles around your face. Plus, it automatically turns off after a minute! Could not be easier.

Clarisonic recommends using the Mia once a day, and although most probably use it at night, I prefer to use it in the morning because it really wakes up my face. Also, for what it’s worth, I prefer using a creamier-type cleanser with the brush. I found foaming face washes to be a little too harsh on my super sensitive skin, so I have been sticking with a non-foaming cleanser. Actually, the one that comes with the Mia system works great, and I also love Avene’s Extremely Gentle Cleanser.

The Mia’s size is perfect for traveling, and it has a really cool magnetic charger that charges the handle up for what seems to be an eternity. Love love love it!!! (And I’m not the only one. Look at all of the reviews! A 4.9 out of 5.0!)

If you are looking for a new skin cleansing routine, I can’t say enough about the Mia!! And thanks to Clarisonic, I am giving away one Mia Cleansing System to a lucky commenter! Just leave a comment on this post before Friday, December 10th at 6pm PST and you’ll be entered to win! Good luck, everyone!

  25. I have heard great reviews about this. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  29. I need something new for my face; it doesn’t hurt that my birthday is coming up! :)

    Oh how I would love to win this. My 32 year old skin is confused and currently thinks it is 13 instead!

  37. Would love to have this for my 31st birthday!

  38. i used to have a brush like that when i was a teenager – and just this weekend my teenager was having skin drama and i was thinking that something like that would be perfect for her. great timing! i hope i win.

  41. I’d love to have one of these!

  42. Bridgett Birmingham says:

  43. I would love to give this to my mom for the holidays!

  44. I would love to try this. Having so much frustration with post-babies skin.

  45. My skin has been so crazy out of whack since the baby was born – maybe this can save it!

  46. I would love to win a Clairsonic! I’ve been thinking about buying one but the cost is a bit prohibitive right now.

  47. Yes! I hear great things about this from several of my friends. I need one too!

  48. What a great tool to get through the skin-dulling winter months in Michigan!

  49. This would be lovely!!!

  50. A wake up routine for the face? Count me in! I will add this to my holiday wish list!

  51. I have been wanting one of these for at least a year, but it just hasn’t been in the budget.

  58. I would love to have one of these babies!

  59. I really could use this! I have keratosis pilaris, a skin condition that makes it look like I have red goosebumps all the time. I even have it on my face! I would love to be able to have smooth skin for once in my life. :)

  60. I have wanted one of these for quite some time, but couldn’t justify spending the money. This is a wonderful opportunity! Thank you!! :)

  61. My skin could sure use a pick me up!

  62. I wonder if you can use this on baby’s cradle cap? hmmmm?

  63. I love my Mia (I purchased one back in March) but I’d love to give one to my mom! Thanks for the chance to win!

  64. Every time I get a facial and they use one on me I am *this* close to making the splurge, but then the practical side of me takes over. Would definitely be a much needed early Christmas gift to myself!

  65. I’ve been looking at these! I have heard that Philosophy Purity is a good cleanser to use with these systems as well.

  66. Please, oh please! My skin needs some extra TLC after just having a baby! p.s. my daughter’s name is Mia! See? It was meant to be!

  67. Tammi Marie says:

  77. Amy Columbus says:

    I would love to win this! My face is an absolute mess! I feel like I am going through my teenage years all over again at 33!

  78. My skin has been in need of a miracle—perhaps this is it!

  79. Carolyn Gillan says:

    I would love to try this product! It looks wonderful! :)

  84. It looks like a great product! I’d definitely love to win this one :)

  85. I’ve been dying for one of these!!!

  86. I was JUST telling my mom I wanted this for Christmas!

  87. My husband really wants one! I have the old school big Clarisonic and love it, but I travel all week every week so he can’t just borrow mine :)

  88. I have heard really good things about Clarisonic. Can’t wait to try it!

  89. I have wanted one of these but could never justify spending the money — would love it!

  90. Oooooh, I’ve wanted to try this for a long time, but the price was preventing me. Wasn’t sure if I should spend that much $$, etc. So, count me in. Hope I win!

  91. Pick me!

  92. Pick me, pretty please – I have wanted to try this for a long time!

  93. I want it!!!

  94. I have been dying to try one of these!! A recent move to a new, much drier climate, and a recent layoff in the household means no Christmas gifts to myself this year, this would fit the bill perfectly and make for a much merrier holiday season. Pick me, please!!

  95. I love trying new things!

  96. Maria Louise says:

    Ooh, I need one of these in my life.

  97. I didn’t have acne as a teenager, but my face is taking its revenge now that I’m 30. This would be wonderful!

  98. Am jealous. Have been wanting. Must save pennies!

  99. My pores and I would love a chance to try one of these!

  100. Would love it!

  101. Traci Laurie says:

    Must. Have!

  102. I’m getting my sister in law one of these for christmas but I really really want to buy it for myself instead. If I win then everyone gets to be happy!

  103. Oh, I have had this on my wish list forever.

  104. Smaller pores? One minute? Great on sensitive skin? I’m sold!!!

  105. OMG. My poor skin is CRAVING one of these.

    Wow, what a great giveaway! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed. :)

  107. heathercoo says:

    I have been lusting over one of these forever. This would make my Christmas amazing!!


  109. I have one and my mother has one (and just about every woman in my family – we all love them!) but I would love to give it to my mother-in-law.

  110. I have been wanting one of these, but they are rather pricey. Great idea for Christmas! (I don’t seem to be able to submit a comment using Firefox, so I switched to IE — hope this is not a duplicate!)

  111. This is on my Christmas list!

  112. Pure Awesomeness! Count me in. :)

  113. I would so love this! My skin is so sensitive that it’s hard to find products that don’t irritate the bejeepers out of it. Plus, with Utah’s harsh dry climate, if I don’t exfoliate regularly my skin feels like a flakeasaurus rex!

  114. I would LOVE to have one of these. These New England winters do a number on my super-fair and sensitive skin.

  115. Oh. My. Gosh. Here’s to winning! (Fingers crossed.) xo

  116. I love this. Must try.

  117. have not been able to justify buying one for myself based on the price, so winning one would just be heaven!

  118. This would be a-maz-ing!!!

  119. OMG, my friend has the Clarisonic Mia and loves it! I’ve been drooling over it for weeks now!!!

  120. Looks amazing!!!!!

  121. Been eyeing one of these for awhile, but haven’t made the leap yet!

  122. I would looooooooooooooove this! Please, random number generator — pick me!! :)

  123. My old clarisonic died a horrible and tragic death, I’d LOVE to win a replacement!

  124. I need this!!!

  130. Sounds fabulous!

  131. My skin and I would be eternally grateful for the chance to try this product! Thank you for the chance to win.

  139. I have this and I love it! This would be fun to put under the tree for my mom this Christmas.

  140. I am shaking in my boots, I’ve wanted one of these since last Christmas! Your review of this matches what I’ve heard from my girlfriends, especially ones that recently were pregnant… that this product really makes a difference.

    Thank you for such an enticing giveaway!


  141. Oh my gosh, this would seriously be AMAZING to win. I have a thyroid condition that makes my facial skin really dry and also gives me facial redness. Nothing helps. It’s really embarrassing, and takes so much time to cover up with concealer and foundation. I’ve heard that the Clarisonic brushes can help reduce redness AND help to get rid of dry skin and helps to moisturize, I so want to see if this would help me out! Thank you SO much for the chance to win. Sorry I capitalized so many words, I’m not yelling, I’m just excited! ;) Thanks again!

  142. I was just admiring these at Sephora last weekend and was wishing Santa would bring me one!

  143. Ooh! I need this. Real, real bad. Do they have a non-zit breeding cleanser?

  144. Oh my goodness, my dull post partum skin needs a pick me up! Would love one of these.

  145. Everyone should have one of these in the winter!

  146. That sounds awesome!

  147. I’ve been coveting one of these for a long time. I’d love to win it!

  148. I would LOVE one of these! :)

  149. I just put this on my Christmas list! Every since I got pregnant my skin has been all kinds of crazy and I think this would be perfect!

  150. I would love to win this. I feel like I’ve tried everything else and my pores are still clogged so this HAS to work!

  151. Yes, I would love to win this!

  152. wow, I’m sold! sounds awesome!

  153. I am pretty sure I had a cheapo knockoff version of this in high school, many moons ago, that I loved.

  154. I was just looking at this on amazon and I jumped over here to see if you had reviewed it and here it is! I would love love love love love to win, if not I will buy it for myself for my birthday!

  155. Would love to try one of these!

  156. Sounds amazing!

  157. Lauren Haggerty says:

  174. I would love to try this!!!

  175. I’m throwing my name in for this (along with hundreds of others!) but crossing my fingers. I’ve been intrigued by the Clarisonic devices for several years now and my skin needs some help!

  176. MUST have this! My skin is not taking kindly to the dry, dry heat being turned on indoors this time of year. It also seems to hate the exfoliator I use, so I can’t win, it seems.

  177. I’ve wanted one of these forever, but can’t afford the pricetag!

  178. Kendra Moore says:

    I would LOVE to have this (and need it to!). Plus I never win anything. Maybe this time?

  195. Amy in StL says:

  246. Thanks for the review, this sounds fantastic!

  247. this is on my christmas list!

  248. I’ve been on the verge of buying the Mia sooo many times, but at this point, I’m kind of hoping someone gets it for me for Christmas! Or that I win this giveaway. ;)

  249. My 1,000 year old face and I would really love to have this!

  250. Good Luck to me! I’d LOVE to win this – I’ve really been wanting one!

  251. So need that. My skin is a mess.

  252. I could really use one of these for my skin!

  253. I nominate my mom, she never has the time to take care of herself. She works the graveyard shift at a lab. They work her like a sweatshop. It’s taken a toll on her and her face shows it. I would love to get this for her so she can feel better about herself.

  254. I nominate my BFF Tina Fergie Ferg. This girl makes me laugh through my sadness, she’s been through the tough times and good times. She’s been there through my boyfriends, miscarriage, everythign you name it. She doesn’t like to be touched so no manicures, pedicures or massages. This girl is crazy. I love massages. So if I can get this for her, she can take care of her skin and her mug! She’s a mommy of 4 (2 are step) she’s barely 30. She has to deal with teenager drama, ex wife drama, etc. I don’t know how she does it. She may be 98 lbs but this girl is STRONGER than anyone I know.

  255. This would be AWESOME! I would love one of these…I currently buy those little beauty buffers from ULTA and they’re a pain the butt b/c they go flat so fast and I think sometimes they’re a little rough on my face – but this thing looks awesome and I’ve heard such great reviews on it!

  256. Oh, I really hope I win this one. This thing has been on my wish list forever, and now, with under six months to my wedding, my skin is having a total panic attack.

  257. Oohh, major want!

  258. Ooh, I’d love to win this as a gift to spread the Clarisonic love! Thanks for the opportunity!

  259. I need this.

  260. Oohh..I have been eyeing this thing for quite sometime..wish I could get it..:)

  261. Jennifer H. says:

    This looks like exactly what I need!! This is our second Nebraska winter, and it’s killing my poor skin!!

  276. Ottawa winter + one year old baby stresses + daily dog walks = skin in desperate need of one of these puppies :)

  277. I would love to win this, not even for myself, but for my mother

  278. I’d like to give this to my girlfriend

  279. Thanks so much for the chance to win. I’ve tried 100s of products and am still looking for that right skin-glowing, stess-reducing, acne-stopping miracle.

  280. This would be perfect for my skin in the winter.

  281. I would love to try this!!!
