Sensitive Filipina It's a well made product, but too powerful for sensitive skin that doesn't need deep cleaning. I used it every few days with the sensitive brush on a low speed, but felt it was still too much for my skin. It left my skin feeling raw and irritated instead of deep cleaned. I had to return it since I couldn't use it regularly. Just more than I needed for cleansing my skin, but a good product nonetheless.
LRo After reading all of the wonderful reviews about clarisonic, I took the plunge and purchased 2 Arias, one for me and one for my husband. We have been using them for about a month and we absolutely love them! He uses his in the shower once a day and it has improved his skins appearance and has helped minimize his pores and has helped in decreasing razor bumps after shaving. I have sensitive and acne prone skin, which led me to this product. The first 2 times I used it, it made my face a little red. I also broke out a bit. But easily after about 4 uses, I saw a huge improvement in my skin. I am in my early 20s and swear my skin hasn't looked like this since I was maybe 10 years old lol. It's so clean and firmer and it glows. I use it in the morning and evening with a salicylic acid face wash that I put into the center of the brush (which is the deep pore cleanser brush with the bluish green and white bristles). I also remove my makeup before I use it. My acne isn't completely gone, but the Aria has definitely played a huge part in helping my skin. I have also noticed that other products like moisturizers and acne spot treatments are now more effective. While I have not used the Mia or Mia 2, if you are looking for something more budget friendly, I believe that they would have similar, if not the same, results. The third speed on this is a plus, but I feel like I get a good cleaning on the normal setting as well. The Aria also has the drying stand and USB charger, which I like, but you don't really need either of those. It's basically for convenience. So it comes down to what you really can pay for. I did get a good deal on the Arias and that's why I purchased those in the end after some research. Also, don't expect it to be the "cure-all" Because depending on your skin, you may be let down. I still do have some acne, but my skin is in much better condition and that is why I recommend this product.
Sara I don't know how I lived without this! Just having it 1 week and my skin looks and feels SO much better! Expensive, but worth every penny! I purchase the new Aria model and I love the 3 different speeds and magnetic charger. This is now one of my must haves. Make sure to register you Clarisonic on their website when you get it.... they email you a $25 off coupon for the next time you need replacement brushes!!!

Jen I have combination skin and I was so tired of having oily and dry patches on my face. I decided to treat myself to a Clarisonic despite the heafty price tag. Completely worth every penny! My face is no longer shiny and my skin is very soft.
The Skincare Skeptic I don't usually write these, but this product is an investment and I want to help others who may be in my position when I was looking at buying this.I've always struggled with my skin. Not horrible acne, but it comes and goes in spurts, always at it's worse during my monthly visit. I was on medication and stopped about a month ago because the cost. I do still use Differin gel, a topical, which I love and recommend!!I went to Ulta unsure of what I planned to do. The woman working was incredibly knowledgable. She'd been using for many years and loves it. Her pores were small and had flawless skin. So after about 5 minutes of hearing about it, I grabbed it, along with Philosophy's 3 in 1 purity cleanser and checked out. Since I starting using both products, my skin has felt so incredibly smooth! It's day 3 and I swear my pores are visually smaller. It's winter in Wisconsin and my face is feeling hydrated and fresh (a rarity here during these months!) I have experienced a couple minimal breakouts, but I'm blaming that on the skincare switch and the timing of my monthly visit. I really would recommend this device. Yes, it's expensive. But I'm convinced my pores will continue to improve. I'm hoping less breakouts and healthier looking and feeling skin will continue.Keep in mind, if you don't like it you can always bring it back. But I know mine will be kept mine :)
Smoothasababiesbottom Yes, it may be more pricey than the $20 ones you've been buying buy we are talking quality here! My face has never been this smooth, blemishes heal quicker, pores are more refined and I can definitely tell the lotions I put on are being absorbed better therefore actually working better! You are throwing money away if you use any type of topicals (wrinkle, acne, moisturizer) WITHOUT a Clairsonic. This is a must!!!
Alexandra I used to have a Mia, my mom has the Plus, and I upgraded to this about 6 months ago.I really can't say anything about it that most others haven't already said, except that I believe the Aria is the best in the entire line. I use Salux towels to exfoliate my body, and those work better than the Plus. In my opinion, save your money (and the space), and get this one- it has the best of everything from Clarisonic.
Lisa So just a little background about myself. I am 21 years old, fair skin, golden reddish hair with freckles.About 2 years ago I had awful acne. So yes I have very sensitive skin and am break out prone. I can only wear talc free makeup. However, I have been using the acne.org line of products ever since and my acne has cleared completely. Unfortunately, I don't love benzoyl peroxide and wanted to be clear without it. It does wonders for killing acne but at the same time it's a hassle putting it on and it sort of dries out your skin and makes it look like you have fine lines. Now that i have my Clarisonic i have just been using it with the cleanser and AHA I have always used (acne.org) and I way prefer this regimen. I had maybe a tiny purging stage but not awful because I already take care of my skin. My face feels softer and it just looks like day by day my acne scars and redness is fading. This product is not rough on the skin at all. You just barely set it against your skin while washing it. Obviously don't press hard on your skin cause that could cause irritation and hurt. I use it morning and night. Sometime only 30-40 sec in the morning but always a minute at night. It is expensive but if you are someone who is tired of not having clear skin and you want a more natural way of improving your skin, this product has improved my skin and I don't have to use as many products.(which saves money)
D.C. I bought my Aria right after Christmas. I fully charged it as instructed but it was still dead and unusable, no matter what I tried. I returned it to Ulta and bought another one. I gave a four star rating due to the inconvenience of having a defective one first time around. I can say that after using it for about a month that I love it. I use my own facial cleanser with it. I use my Aria every day. My face feels really clean. I can tell a difference already with my complexion. I am 48 y.o. and still having breakouts. Now that I am using my Aria my face has cleared up, and skin tone is more even. I like that it is waterproof, lightweight, has adjustable timer, and easy to use.
