Cleansing with Clarisonic Mia 2 and Banila Co Clean It Zero Balm

Cleansing with Clarisonic Mia 2 and Banila Co Clean It Zero Balm

Cleansing with a Clarisonic brush is a unique experience. I use mine once a month because I’ve read that it can be harsh on Asian skin. The brush is so good however that I do not want to forego it’s benefits. Once a month is all my skin needs to feel completely cleansed, refreshed and massaged. The pulsating vibrations of the brush are AWESOME at bringing new skin cells to the surface and promoting new cell production.

You need a good cleanser to get all the benefits of using a Clarisonic Mia Brush. I use the Banila Co Clean It Zero, a Korean product but it’s a balm cleanser with a sherbet like formulation. Comes in a jar and there is a lot of product, so I use mine sparingly and thinking this jar will last me for a long time. There is no foaming effect which is good because you’re trying to massage your skin for 1 minute with the Clarisonic, and if there was too much foam, I don’t think it would be as pleasant. This light cleanser has a delicate fragrance and cleanses very well without damaging the skin’s surface.

Using Clarisonic Mia 2

There is a recommended timer chart for how long each area of the face should be massaged/cleansed. The Mia 2 lets you know when it’s time to move on by signalling with a pulse.
