Since the Clarisonic came out a few years ago, I have heard people sing its praises. Since skin was never really my problem (lucky I know- but trust me, there are other beauty issues that nag me which we will get into eventually) I didn't pay much attention to the fervor. They sent me one to try out and I actually gave it to my mom (she LOVES it to this day, by the way) because I really didn't see the need for it. It was kind of big, had to be plugged in, and since I washed my face in the shower, having it next to my sink was kind of inconvenient. And the charging station was bulky and none too attractive.
Well, I confess- I am a Clarisonic Mia convert.
I give it one good charge and it lasts for about a month, based on my once daily usage at least. I like that it guarantees I give my face a thorough one minute washing, and when I get out of the shower, my skin feels clean-scrubbed in the best possible way.
