Mia2 and The Orange Experiment

Today, seeing I finally have an orange at home, I decided to try out the 'Orange Experiment' with my Clarisonic Mia2 to show how well it cleanses.

The things I used for this experiment:
One orange
CC Cream by Chanel
Clarisonic Mia2

The orange is used to represent our skin, the holes being our pores.

First, I spread some CC Cream onto the orange. Imagine this is yourself applying the foundation onto your skin.

Without using any cleanser, I tried to wash the CC Cream off with my bare hands. I massaged the orange for one minute under running water.

It felt very greasy and gross to wash it off with my bare hands. Even after one minute of washing the orange with water, the CC Cream had not come out of the orange skin, and even worse, the CC Cream had sunk into the holes. Imagine the orange being your skin, and the more you massage with your bare fingers, you are actually pushing the dirt back into your pores!

Moreover, my hands became very greasy, and some of the orange remains stained my hand!

Now, let's compare this with cleansing with the Clarisonic Mia2:

So again, I spread some of my CC Cream onto the orange.

Then, I wet the Clarisonic Mia2 with some water, and massaged it against the orange for one minute.

As I did not use any cleanser, there is a little bit of the CC Cream left on the orange, but it did not feel sticky or greasy. None of the CC Cream had sunk into the holes, and the holes were very clean. Imagine this being your skin, and your pores are clean after every wash! The brush, however, had absorbed all of the foundation.

The results are very obvious after the experiment! The Clarisonic Mia2 cleans much better than using bare hands, and it cleans deep into the pores, but does not damage the skin. On the other hand, by using bare hands to cleanse your face, can actually push the dirt back into your skin, hence enlarging your pores, and creating blackheads.

I have been using my Clarisonic Mia2 everyday, for two weeks now, and I absolutely love it! Hubby has been using it on random occasions too, though he uses it on High Speed as he has thicker skin. I have realised that my pores look smaller now, and I'm very satisfied with my purchase! :)
