Clarisonic, the pioneer and leader in professional-caliber at-home sonic skin care technology, is thrilled to announce that its acclaimed Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush was honored with a “Glammy” in the “Best Gadget” category in the 2012 Glamour Beauty Awards.
Glamour has forever been edited for today’s contemporary American woman since its conception in 1939 and has a loyal and engaged readership. In its 8th annual year, Glamour’s beauty awards, “The Glammies,” are a tried and true collection of readers’ favorite products. Over 399,000 readers have nominated and voted on their beauty “must-haves” since the awards’ origin in 2005. Upon tallying the votes of thousands of readers, only one product is honored in each category. The 2012 winners were revealed in the magazine’s October issue.
“This is the first year that the brand has been honored with a Glamour beauty award and we are thrilled to be recognized,” says Chris Payne, Clarisonic’s VP of Marketing. “The Glamour consumer is well aware of the many skincare options on the market and we are happy that she has selected us as the device of her choice.”
The Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush has forever been adored by beauty editors, dermatologists, makeup artists and celebrities alike since its launch in 2009. The device’s travel-friendly size and affordable price point make it the perfect introduction to Clarisonic’s patented sonic technology. Oscillating at a sonic frequency of over 300 movements per second, the Mia gently massages away impurities, providing six times better cleansing than cleansing with your hands alone. Clinical results have shown reduced appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and improved skin tone. Mia is available in a rainbow of colors making it a consumer favorite. Forever versatile, all Clarisonic brush heads are interchangeable with Mia and all Clarisonic skin cleansing models.
There are many types of acne and with each type comes different courses of action. In theis week’t Ask Dr. Robb he answers who should use the Acne Clarifying Collection.
The Acne Clarifying Collection pairs the power of Clarisonic’s patented sonic technology with our Acne Cleansing Brush Head and Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser, this collection simplifies and improves the cleansing process. In one easy step that’s safe and gentle enough for use twice daily, you can remove dirt, oil and impurities more thoroughly—and begin to treat acne blemishes.
Dr. Robb says, we recommend that you don’t use the Clarisonic if you have any open wounds. It’s just not smart to put cleansers and bristles into those areas. If you have mild to moderate acne it is great to use. People that even take medicines like acne medication go ahead and use the Clarisonic to cleanse the skin. The Clarisonic is very gentle and shouldn’t cause you any trouble. But always check with your skin care professional if you are taking any kind of medication for acne.
We all know the many benefits of Sonic Cleansing, such as the removal of up to 2x more dirt than manual cleansing alone. Why should our face be the only ones to reap the Sonic benefits? Dr. Robb tells us whether we can use the Clarisonic Mia on places other than our face. Sonic cleansing better prepares your skin for skin care products. Compared to manual cleansing, using the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System allows for up to 61% better absorption of Vitamin C. This better absorption allows creams, serums, moisturizers, even self-tanners to work their best! Some fans use a Normal Brush Head with their Mia on their body; others choose to use the same brush head after facial cleansing. Do you use your Clarisonic system on your body?
Dr. Robb says, the original Clarisonic was designed to be used all over the body. We now have the Clarisonic PLUS and PRO that can be used specifically on the face and body. The Clarisonic Mia can be used in other places. Women love to use the Mia on their next after cleansing their face. It’s great for also using on your hands.
Who knew something so powerful could be so gentle? With the sonic micro-massage motion, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System feels more like a treat than a treatment. Unlike many skin treatments that use harsh chemicals or rely on friction to remove impurities, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System is gentle enough to use twice a day – even on sensitive skin.
Because not all skin is the same, neither are our brush heads. Made from DuPont Tynex Supersoft filaments, the soft bristle material is designed specifically for use in nail, mascara and other cosmetic brushes and is antibacterial. Clarisonic Brush Heads are made to accommodate a range of skin types – normal, sensitive and delicate – as well as specific functions – Deep Pore and Body.
