Clarisonic 'Mia' Review + Giveaway

When the fine folks at Clarisonic offered to send me their Clarisonic Mia to review a couple of months ago, I was immediately intrigued.  I don't often review products, but The Mia, however, had potential.

That's because I've struggled with sensitive skin past my teenage years and into adulthood.  I especially have issues along my shave lines.  I have always washed regularly, but my routine was never the best.  As a result my skin health always had room for improvement.
Once I started using the Mia, I could immediately tell that, although not an immediate cure all, it was going to make a big difference in my overall facial health.  The product is extremely easy to use, just apply some facial cleaner on the brush head, and turn it on.  The Mia vibrates and sonically cleanses my pores as I move it around my face.

What's even better to me is there is a timing system built right in.  You cleanse your face for a minute with different areas getting some allotted time before the Mia beeps, letting you know that it's time to concentrate on the next designated area.  I have found this very helpful in my morning routine, when my mind is groggy and focused more on when it will get it's coffee and get out the door than how long I've been cleaning.

Another thing that has impressed me about the Mia is the battery life.  I think I have only charged it twice since I received it.  I keep thinking it will run low on power soon, but it never does.  Contrasted to many of the other electronics I own, this is impressive.

The only drawback to me, and this isn't much of an issue, might be it's size.  It's about half again bigger than my electric razor, so it can take up valuable bathroom counter space. 

The real test for me and the Mia, will be come as the weather continues to change to Fall here in Seattle.  With the colder weather and lack of ample sunshine, typically comes more difficulty with my overall skin health.  So far though, I am very happy with the product and thankful to Clarisonic for allowing me to give it a review.

Now, onto the good part.  Clarisonic has also offered to send one lucky ready their very own Clarisonic Mia as well.   To gain entries into the contest you can do the following (one entry for each, and you have to leave a separate comment here about each of #1, #3, or #4 to let me know they has been completed).

1. Leave a comment telling me what color Mia you'd like.
2. Tweet about the contest on Twitter.  Be sure to link to this post, use the hashtag #SDMiaGiveaway,  and mention @Seattledad & @Clarisonic in the body of the tweet.
3. Become a new Google Friend of  LIAYF Reviews (right navigation column), or of 'Luke, I am Your Father' 
4. Grab the adoption badge below, display it on you site, and let me know in a separate comment. 

The contest, which is open to residents of the United States or Canada, will remain open until October 3rd, when I will use Random.org to choose from the entries. You must also leave a valid way for me to contact you to be eligible.

Full Disclosure ~ As I mentioned, Clarisonic provided me the products free of charge to review.  The opinions, however, remain solely my own.  That is all.
