If I were to invest on a skincare tool this year, it'll be on the Clarisonic Mia. I've snubbed this beauty gadget during the height of its raves and I absolutely regret doing that.
|Clarisonic Mia Turquiose, $149|
My problem skin arises from its abnormal exfoliation rate. My face's dead skin cells slough off rather slowly which causes excess oil and dirt to be trapped. I badly need a good exfoliating tool apart from my favorite St. Ives apricot bright skin scrub. Clarisonic Mia is among the best investments for maintaining clearer and better skin, in my opinion.
Makeupalley has high ratings for this tool (4.5/5 from 323 reviewers) that's why my heart sank deeper than the Titanic did when I lost the slot to buy it. A local reseller was selling it for a low ~$100 (P4500) since she hoarded during some sale, i think. *hits head on the wall* Most resellers have the Mia for P6500+. I could've saved P2000! :(
There are these so-called affordable dupes out there but most of those who tried both the Mia and the conning exfoliator still preferred the original.
So out of frustration, I got myself a pseudo Mia. Wallet damage? LOL, P40 (less than a dollar). I am just utterly disappointed that I missed getting this baby at $100.
My favorite color is blue but I don't mind getting the limited edition, Mia Hope (this sold out like hot pancakes, though).
Oh Clarisonic Mia, when will you be mine?
