Skin care is so necessary - especially when you're surrounded by cigarette smoke & other nasty pore cloggers. Click through to learn about the Clarisonic Mia 2 & find out how to give your skin some much-needed TLC!{ pin it! πŸ“Œ }

In Europe, chain-smoking is a real thing.

Of course, you do you, but I just can’t see myself jumping aboard the cigarette wagon anytime soon … The smell just gets to me, y’know? 

But, even beyond the smell, smoking is VERY anti-wellness – it’s so ridiculously bad for you, inside & out. The problem with this pesky habit is that the side effects happen not only to the smoker, but also to everyone else around them. πŸ™

It was only a couple of days of my life in Paris before I noticed how bad my skin got due to the never-ending billows of cig smoke around me. I knew something was up because I’ve actually been VERY on-point with my skin-care routine recently. Back home, skin care tended to slip my mind, & when I did actually remember, I slacked off tons. Tsk, tsk – I know. 

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have an actual SINK in my room, just a couple feet away from my bed? I swear, it just sits there in the corner & judges me if I don’t get up & take care of my skin – LOL!

But really, at one point, I felt so nasty & knew that my skin needed some major TLC. So, I got a Deep Pore set + a Mia 2 from Clarisonic & the rest is history.


a review : Clarisonic Deep Pore Mia 2 Set

Clarisonic devices are my go-to because the sonic technology is just SO worth it. It makes sure that the brush REALLY gets in there & takes out all of the nastiness clogging my pores. It’s almost ridiculous how hands just can’t compare – I’d say it’s pretty damn magical. ✨

I sometimes have a lil’ tough luck with skin care because I kinda, sorta have skin that’s on the sensitive side. It’s not too terrible, but it does mean that certain products just don’t work for me. The Clarisonic isn’t a problem at all because it feels gentle on my skin ( & judging from the lack of blotchiness on my face afterward, it actually IS pretty gentle ). 

There are 2 speed options : delicate & universal. Delicate’s awesome if you have more sensitive skin, but universal obvi works a lil’ better. I like to use the universal speed unless I’m breaking out.

There’s a ton of different brush types each for different uses, which keeps things interesting. The brush heads need to be replaced every couple of months ( I’d say like, 3 ). 

It has a rechargeable battery which actually barely has to be recharged, which is perf if you’re terrible at keeping all your chargers organized like I am, lol!

Basically, what I do is remove my makeup, wet the device & splash some water on my face, spread some cleanser on my face ( the Deep Pore Mia 2 set comes with a cleanser, but you can also use my fave cleanser ), & get cleaning. It literally takes a minute – super fun, super easy. I usually use it at the sink, but you can also use it in the shower because it’s waterproof. Convenient, right?!

β˜€οΈ hot tip : leave your Clarisonic in a dry place so it doesn’t mold

For some much-needed skin TLC, check out Clarisonic devices – their effects are well worth the price tag. πŸ™‚ I highly recommend! 


So, tell me – have any of you babes tried using a Clarisonic yet? Or maybe it’s at the top of your wish-list? Let me know!
