Back in 2013 I had white spots on the side of my left cheek and my forehead. My mom noticed it one day and she thought the spots were white patches (panau) and insisted me to rub fresh ginger on my face which of course I refused to grant because I know that they were not just white patches. I mean the spots came with textures. I could feel it whenever I touched my cheek like it was there sitting underneath my skin.
FYI, I exfoliated my face everyday, twice a day (absurd) using the St. Ives green tea scrub.
But no success.
So I thought I needed to upgrade my skincare routine and maybe incorporate a tool or something. That’s when I found out about the Clarisonic cleansing brush. So I did my research and I read so many positive reviews on it.
I was completely sold.
I was so so eager to purchase it but I know it wasn’t available here in Malaysia. So I had to buy it online.
Why 2? Because after a year of using the blue one, I lost the charger so I had to get a new one since the SA at Sephora told me they don’t sell a separate unit of charger.
And after almost 3 years of using it, these are my verdicts:
— No more white patches.
— My skin is less bumpy. It feels smooth to the touch.
— Texture is definitely better now.
— I don’t feel guilty about wearing foundation everyday anymore since I know my Mia 2 cleans my skin 6 times better than my hands alone *smirks*
— I feel fancy.
The thing about this tool is that I have to change the brush head every 3 months and it costs about RM90 for one brush. Hole in my wallet.
And speaking of brush head, there are many kinds available to provide for different skin concerns. I use the normal brush head. I’ve used the deep pore brush but it was too rough.
I use it once a day in the evening with the Hada Labo’s Deep Clean & Pore Refining cleanser, alternating between the 2 speeds that Mia 2 has.
Honestly, I still get occasional breakout especially at that time of the month but it is much lesser than before I started using this tool.
Overall, I’m happy with my Mia 2. They are so many other tools out there and I’m not gonna lie sometimes I feel like abandon my Mia 2 and recruit another tool *ahem*Foreo Luna*ahem* especially when I lost the charger last year. But no, I ran to Sephora and bought the same tool, different color.
I love my Mia 2.
