Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the Mia cost 4-5 times more than the Olay Pro X?

The main reasons for this is because the Mia is better constructed, uses a charger rather than batteries, and the brand name also adds to the price in my opinion, since Clarisonic have become a powerhouse in producing the best of the best skin cleansing brushes. Other than that I don’t see any other reasons for the massive price difference.

What Does Each One Feel Like On The Skin?

The Mia has a more powerful motor and feel as if your getting a deep tissue cleanse. The Olay Pro X feels more like having a Swedish massage.

I personally have no preference to how each one feels on the skin. I have seen better results with Mia but not by much, and others in the family have actually had better results using the Pro X.

Which One Would You Recommend I Buy?

I really wish I could just give a straight answer to this questions and say buy this one, however I cannot as both models can give you equally as good results.

What I will say is if you are struggling with money and currently cannot afford the Mia then the Olay Pro X is the best alternative for the price you are going to get.

Charger Or Battery Operated?

For me the Mia wins big on this one as I find it much easier to charge the Mia every few days/weeks than needing to buy new batteries for the Pro X, which over time can add up to a big expense, especially since batteries are far from cheap.

Which One Is Better For Traveling?

Both are perfect for traveling as they are light, small and compact. If space is an absolute premium for you then the Olay Pro X is slightly smaller, as you can see by looking at the compassion chart above.

What Are The Biggest Differences Between Each Model?

The 2 biggest differences is that one uses a charger and the other uses AA batteries. The other one is the Mia gives a deeper cleanse meaning it is more effective at removing dead skin cells, dirt and make-up, were the Pro X gives a lighter cleanse which could make it better for users with very sensitive skin.

Does The Olay Pro X Have A Timer Like The Mia?

No, the Pro X does not have a timer.

Where Is The Best Place To Buy The Mia Or Pro X?

The best place to buy these skin cleansing brushes is Amazon in my opinion. Not only do they offer the best prices 99% of the time but they are a trusted and well established brand, which is very important when buying anything online.
