Clarisonic Mia 1

InStyle Editor's Pick - Best Beauty Buy (Best Face Tool)

It’s time to think beyond the washcloth and elevate cleansing to a sonic level. Traditional methods of cleansing don’t get your skin as clean as you’d think. Fortunately, the lead inventor of Sonicare discovered a breakthrough in how we cleanse. Clarisonic’s patented sonic technology works with skin’s natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind—cleansing 6X better than your hands alone. In just 60 seconds, the sonic action removes impurities from pores so creams, serums and moisturizers absorb better. And with regular daily use you’ll notice a reduction in dry patches, oily areas and blemishes. Cleaner skin is healthier skin and healthier skin is more radiant and more beautiful.

The perfect compact cleansing system for use at home or on the go. Mia 1 is the, go-anywhere Sonic Skin Cleansing System in a great compact size. The one-button, one-speed Mia 1 fits your active lifestyle for beautiful, glowing skin wherever life's adventures take you.
