This innovative skin solution pairs the Clarisonic Mia 2 cleansing brush with two new products - the Deep Pore Daily Cleanser and the Decongesting Clay Mask - to tackle the common problem of congested skin.

I've been suffering from really bad congestion around my chin for the past few months, on top of my usual problem area of my nose, so I was eager to see if this would make a difference.

And it definitely has. Used alone, the Clarisonic Mia 2 is an excellent way of deep cleansing your skin, and in conjunction with the new products its even more effective.

The Deep Pore Brush Head, which oscillates at a speed of 300 movements per second to thoroughly remove impurities, differs from the usual Clarisonic brush as it has dual-direction motion to flush pores out even more effectively.

I tend to cleanse using a micellar water first to remove my makeup, then apply a pea-sized amount of the daily cleanser to the Clarisonic brush, using circular movements to cleanse each area of my skin. 

The Mia 2 features two speeds so you can tailor the speed to suit your skin. It also has an inbuilt timer so you always limit your cleansing to a minute.

Once a week, I've been using the Decongesting Clay Mask to amp up my battle against congestion. It contains oil absorbers kaolin and bentonite clays, as well as skin-renewing hydroxy acid, to both brighten and clear skin.

The Clarisonic Deep Pore Decongesting Solution Kit includes:

Clarisonic Mia 2
Universal Voltage Charger
Deep Pore Brush Head
6 oz Deep Pore Daily Cleanser
2 oz Decongesting Clay Mask
Protective Travel Case

It retails for €169 and is available nationwide, including Brown Thomas.
