Now, this was a good fake. Unlike the Naked 2 Palette, there was no reason for me to think it wasn't real, other than not trusting the seller. So I did the only thing you need to do to verify that your Mia is real: I called Clarisonic to register it. And lo and behold, it was fakety fake fake. Sharing Spree gave me my money back and then declared bankruptcy before I could return the fake Clarisonic to them...so what to do?
Well, after letting it sit on my counter for a month, I have started using it. I wash with Cerave Hydrating Cleanser every night and then use the fake Clarisonic, following up with Cerave moisturizer. And my skin is loving it. Acne scars are fading, fine lines are getting a little bit finer, and my pores are smaller. It makes me feel like I wasn't really getting all of my makeup off before. I love it enough that when this fake Mia breaks (which I have heard from friends it will before it's even time to swap out the head), I'll replace it with the real deal (probably from that very link to Ulta, because that's a good price).
So, there's a not very helpful review of a fake product, but at least I know now that I would most likely love a real Clarisonic and I'm not out any money. And unlike using fake makeup (which could be made of god knows what and really hurt you), I don't think this can damage my skin in any way. Do you have a Clarisonic? What do you think?
