While we were celebrating our partnership with Look Good…Feel Better® at the AFI FEST 2010 in Hollywood in November, we garnered some amazing celebrity autographs on Limited Edition Hope Mia® Sonic Cleansing Systems.

We will be donating 100% of the selling price of each autographed unit. In the spirit of the Academy Awards, here are some of the Mias to be auctioned.

We often receive inquiries from Clarisonic users regarding the different brush head options for the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System. With all the fabulous options to choose from it can be tricky deciding which one is right for you! Here are some common questions and answers to give you better insight on choosing a brush head.
What brush head came with my Clarisonic?
- Clarisonic Mia Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
o Limited Edition Hope Mia comes with a Sensitive Pink Brush Head.
- Clarisonic Classic Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
o The Graphite Gray model comes with a Normal Brush Head.
- Clarisonic PLUS Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
- Clarisonic PRO Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
o The Graphite Gray model comes with a Normal Brush Head.
What are the different types of brush heads?
The available brush heads are: Delicate, Sensitive, and Normal. These are compatible on all of our units. The Body Brush is available for the PLUS and PRO models only.
Why is the sensitive brush head standard?
We have found this to be our most popular brush head. Therefore, this brush head is included with every new Clarisonic.
Which brush head is best for my skin?
Everyone’s skin is different and we suggest you listen to your skin when selecting a brush head. If you want a deeper cleanse, the normal brush head is slightly stiffer. If you are experiencing dry patches or irritation, you might want to try the sensitive or delicate brush head. The delicate brush head is also designed for extra sensitive skin or for those suffering from complicated skin conditions.
Can I use the body brush on the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Cleansing System?
No. The Body Brush is only compatible with the PLUS and PRO models.
Does each model require a different type of brush head?
No. All facial brush heads work on any model (The Body Brush is only compatible with the PLUS and PRO models).
Does the brush head spin?
No. The brush head oscillates (back and forth motion) to provide a more gentle cleansing experience.
Can I share a brush head with another person?
We strongly recommend using separate brush heads because your skins differ in condition and we want you to achieve optimal results.
Do I need to clean my brush head?
Yes. While you may believe you are cleaning your brush head every time you cleanse, we suggest cleaning the brush head once a week using an antibacterial cleanser. For a more detailed tutorial on brush head cleaning, please read our previous Sonic Chatter Post: How Do I Clean My Brush Head?
Hopefully we answered some of the common brush head questions. If not, please feel free to ask us in the comments!
December brings festive warm spiked drinks (pass the ‘nog!), family gatherings, your reacquaintance with goose down and of course, the annual mad rush to buy gifts for everyone on your ever-growing list. And is there any better gift than those of the beauty variety? I love them because few recipients would shun a grooming gift. Plus? They manage to seem incredibly personal, though they work for even your most vague associate. Here, my best beauty present recommendations:
The Clarisonic Mia
($149 at clarisonic.com)
These adorable multi-colored skin care saviors are perfectly portable and provide a great introduction to the wonder that is the Clarisonic experience. I like to think of it as The Gateway Clarisonic. I don’t leave town without mine. I simply tote it along with a decanted version of my face wash and scrub. One of these will set you back $149, compared to the Clarisonic Classic’s more robust $195 price tag.
Patyka Refreshing Spearmint Body Wash
($45 at newlondonpharmacy.com)
I love mint in all its various forms. I recently fell so deeply in love with a pack of Carefree Extra gum (Dessert Delights, Mint Chocolate Chip flavor) that I am going to dedicate a full blog post to it. But I find that in the beauty space, spearmint gets precious little press and I’m here to remedy that situation right now. Patyka’s newly revamped scented shower gel evokes the crisp vibe of a fresh sprig of mint but manages to impart just a subtle fragrance post-shower.
Josie Maran Love Nest Josie’s Argan Favorites
($25, exclusive to Sephora)
This is the best deal in the GALaxy. I adore Josie Maran’s natural makeup items and this limited-edition set includes everything you need to look flawlessly beautiful. The set contains an Argan Color Stick in Petal Pink (the perfect shade—it flatters my skin tone utterly), Gogo Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara (won’t dry out brittle lashes), Argan Illuminizer (a makeup bag MVP—it highlights and can be used instead of shadow in a pinch) and 100% Argan Oil (use it to hydrate your face, your split ends, your cuticles—everything!). If a better deal exists, I sure as heckfire don’t know about it.
