Review: Clarisonic Mia Fit

  I have been an avid user of the Clarisonic Pro since 2010.  A friend and I thought it would be fun to allow a local dermatologist to give us a  complexion analysis at a beauty convention.  Seeing the digital image on the screen amplifying every pore, wrinkle, and sunspot, was enough to make me make a major investment in my skin care routine.

  My Clarisonic Pro has served me well for over six years without any issues.  Recently, as with most rechargable products, it started to show signs of age; as it wouldn't hold a charge as long as it used to.  Thinking that it might bite the dust soon, I started researching the newest offerings that Clarisonic had available.  A Clarisonic brush is a pricey investment into my skin care routine so I made sure to do a lot of reading before deciding on the Clarisonic Mia Fit.  Deciding factors in my choice were:
I liked the compact design of the brush. With limited counter space and ample makeup and beauty products, the smaller the better.  I also liked that it featured two power settings. The Clarisonic Pro offered multiple settings as well, so I didn't want to switch to a brush that only offered only one setting.

 A quick search on ebay showed a number of sellers offering the Mia Fit for a fraction of the cost, but I wanted to make sure that I got a genuine product that would last as long as my first brush.  I spent some time reviewing the "Authorized Retailers" section of the Clarisonic website and then comparing prices at the listed retailers until I found the best deal.

Oh happy day, when I pulled up after work and saw the postage box sitting on my doorstep!  I couldn't wait to pull it out my new Mia Fit and start playing with it!


Opening the Box

I had read that the Mia Fit was compact, but it really hit me how small it is when I opened the box.

What's in the Box

I really liked how small the charging station is and that the charger has a USB connection.

Size Comparison to my Clarisonic Pro

I have been using the Clarisonic Mia Fit for several months now, and here's my impressions of the product.
(Disclaimer: I purchased this product with my own money & the opinions here are my own, based on my use of the product.)

The size is a plus.  It takes less counter space, looks unobtrusive, and I was able to easily pack it in a small carry on for a three day trip.

The Mia Fit does not need to be charged regularly.  It can go weeks without charging so there is no need to bring the charger when taking short trips.

The small size makes it easy to maneuver around the face.  

I really enjoy the extra setting that allows you to cleanse your neck area, a setting that I did not have on my previous pro brush.

The shape of the Mia Fit allows water to settle into the brush head, making it take longer to dry.  Many mornings I find that the brush head is still very wet from my shower the previous night.  Special care must be taken to remove the brush head, clean the device, and dry the head thoroughly each use.  

Final Verdict:
Though I probably could have pushed my Clarisonic Pro a little longer, (it requires charging everyday now but it still works)  I am glad that I replaced it with the Mia Fit. The product is lighter, easier to maneuver, easier to travel with, and takes up less space.  

Thanks for reading!
