Clarisonic Smart Profile Launch

If you've been around my blog before, you might be aware of my passion for skincare. If you're new, hi there. But, yes, passion really is the only word for it. Which means that any major skincare launches always catch my attention. Some are just fads or gimmicks, but others are things which become integral parts of my routine and part of my serious addiction (I counted the cleansers in my shower alone last night - there were seven).

The Clarisonic Smart Profile is a bit gimmicky, I'm not going to lie. But in the best possible way. You don't strictly need it but with all those bells and whistles, you sure as hell want it. It makes skincare seem futuristic and cool.

With two kinds of brush-heads, one for face (in a wide variety depending on your skin type, concerns etc) and one for body, it offers both facial cleansing which is 11 times better than merely using a cleanser on its own and body cleansing, exfoliating and massaging. Having only tried the facial brush so far, I can say that it left my skin feeling clean but not squeaky clean (never good) or tight and dehydrated. It was also a pleasant sensation which leads me to believe that the body brush much be amazing after a long day.

The name "Smart Profile" comes from the "smart" feature on this latest Clarisonic launch which sets it far apart from predecessors. It works in two modes; manual, with four settings and a "turbo" button for intense cleaning when necessary, and "smart". "Smart" mode is where it all gets rather futuristic.

The Clarisonic reads which kind of head has been put in place and adjusts the speed and intensity for face vs body and it also goes through a programme of different intensity levels, each for a set amount of time, for different areas so that more sensitive areas aren't agitated and problem areas are thoroughly cleansed. Which means you, the user, merely has to hold it. You also don't have to brush it yourself, just place it against the skin where it will oscillate by itself, moving in a waving motion that doesn't pull or drag on the skin.

You also don't have to worry about when to change the brushes for replacements as the device will tell you itself with an indicator which glows when it's time. Another nice feature for ease of use is that the battery has been designed to prolong use between charges and the charger is USB enabled.

Basically, Clarisonic is trying to give you your best skin with minimal difficulty and just ease and enjoyment of use.  At an RRP of €249.00, it's an investment, I won't lie. However, what better to invest in?

The kit includes the Smart Profile, Smart Dynamic Facial Brush Head, Smart Turbo Massage Body Brush Head, Charger, Refreshing Gel Cleanser (30ml) and Refining Skin Polish (60ml). It can also be used with your regular cleansers as well.

The Smart Profile went on sale yesterday and is available from Clarisonic retailers worldwide.
