WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT

I have to admit, I had wanted a Clarisonic Mia. However, I wasn’t willing to spent over $100 for one. So after doing some research and some gurus/bloggers have claimed that this product works just as well as the Mia, I decided to get it and give it a try. Plus, I had saw the kit on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart for only $20 rather than the usual $30 price tag. Now after using it for over 3 months, I will NEVER GO BACK TO ANYTHING ELSE! Prior to this, I had been using this or this to cleanse my skin. However, now that I have been using the Pro X, I’m so in love with this product! Not only is this item great for taking off all my makeup, but it exfoliates my skin at the same time.


The bristals are really soft so it’s gentle enough for daily use. But of course, use at your own discretion because everyone’s skin is different. My skin is a bit more rough, so I’m able to use it twice daily. Once in the morning when I’m in the shower (yes, this item is waterproof) and then again at night when I’m taking off all my makeup. I have noticed that my complexion has become more clear and bright after using this. Also, because it exfoliates my skin, I have also noticed that my acne scars will fade a lot faster. And my foundation goes on a lot smoother in the morning after using this because all my dead skin would have rubbed off.

The best part about this system is that you can use any cleanser that fits your own needs. I personally didn’t like the Olay cleanser that came with the original package because it dried out my skin. However, this problem was easily fixed when I switched to one of my regular cleansers. (Right now I’m using the Spectro Jel cleanser for blemish-prone skin). I’m honestly in love with this tool and I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a cleaner and brighter complexion. You can’t go wrong with $30!

RATING
Product (5/5)
Cost (5/5)
Ease of Use (5/5)
Packaging (5/5) – I think the over shape of this tool is much better than the MIA because it’s less bulky.
