*This review was made possible by a press sample received from Spa Sonic, all opinions are my own* I have always been a huge Clarisonic Mia fan, my husband bought me one as an anniversary present a few years ago and it has been a staple in my skin care routine ever since. However this isn't something I would have purchased on my own because the price is just too high to justify it. Which is why I jumped at the chance to receive this sample for review.

Many of the questions I know I will be hit with is does the Spa Sonic equal to the Mia. There are a few key differences:

  • The Spa Sonic is battery operated, the Clarisonic requires a plug charger with a base.
  • The Spa Sonic brush head physically rotates in a circle, the Clarisonic brush head vibrates.
  • The Clarisonic is programmed to run for one minute in intervals. The Spa Sonic has no timer
  • The Spa Sonic includes four different attachments including: face brush, body brush, pumice stone and facial sponge.The Clarisonic Mia is only a facial brush (a body brush and extender handle can be bought separately)

As with any many products there are pros and cons to each: I will always have a soft spot for my Clarisonic Mia, it was a gift for my anniversary and has done wonders for my skin, but the price is just too high for most. $100 dollars for just a facial brush is expensive.

I do believe the Spa Sonic is an excellent alternative. It has numerous attachments that can be used all over the body and it works very well. The body brush and the pumice stone are my favorites and something I continue to reach for when I'm in the shower, my husband loves the Spa Sonic face brush for his face and it works really well on the skin under his beard and mustache. I like this machine a lot and it gets plenty of use in my house, I'm thankful I was given the chance to try this machine.

The body brush has worked wonderfully to remove some dry skin patches that have been affecting my arms, I appreciate that it's a bigger brush so it covers more area but it can be slightly awkward to use. The pumice stone is perfect for in between my bi-weekly pedicures. I'm always finding another use for the Spa Sonic, my only complaint is it should come with some sort of pouch to hold the brushes together with the handle. I just know that I am going to lose an attachment at some point.

The price point for the Spa Sonic is way more affordable for everyone Normally retailing for $60 you can actually find it on sale right now at Walgreens for just $34.99 with free shipping. It is a steal for a really wonderful machine.
