The clarisonic mia sonic skin cleansing system is worth every penny. I waited about a year before I decided to purchase one because I was skeptical but now I am a believer of its amazing powers! This skin cleansing system using gentle vibrations to gently but effectively clear your pores of make up,dirt, and grime and leaves my skin feeling smooth, clean, and tight. To use this brush you must first splash your face with warm water and wet the brush with water too. Then, apply a dime size amount of any gentle face cleanser to either the clarisonic brush or your face and then turn on the brush and gentle guide it around your face. The directions advise you spend 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose and chin, and then 10 seconds on each cheek. I personally just gently guide the brush over my whole face and focus on my chin and forehead since those are my problem areas and then the brush turns off after 60 seconds. You should then rinse your face and apply a moisturizer. You'll feel the results instantly! It is definitely worth purchasing!
