Today I will review the new Clarisonic Mia Smart 3 in 1 Connected Sonic Beauty Device to know why it is so loved by estheticians and dermatologists!
The Clarisonic Mia Smart is quite possibly one of those rare products that need no introduction. It is by far the most advanced and enjoyable Clarisonic device yet! Whether you are a makeup lover or a skincare junkie, you will fall in love with the innovatives features and the skin transformation as you keep on using it twice a day.
The Clarasonic Mia Smart – What Does It Do?
The Clarisonic Mia Smart 3-in-1 Connected Sonic Beauty Device is designed to be ideal for basically everything. The brand itself says “one device that does it all”. Let’s see why Mia Smart is everything you can ever want for your skincare routine.
Deep Cleansing- Extracts Dirt from The Pores:
The patented oscillation technology has been clinically proven to remove dirt, dry skin and oils from deep within your pores.
The deep cleansing brush that comes with Mia Smart is engineered with graduated dual action bristles to help you remove all the oil and debris that causes clogged pores. This is perfect if you live in a humid climate or if you have oily and blemish prone skin.
Makeup Application- Flawless Finish:
This is my most favourite feature of Clarisonic Mia Smart. It blends foundation and other liquid and cream products so beautifully that it is almost impossible to tell whether you are wearing makeup or not.
It evenly micro-blends foundation, blushes and contours in less that 60 seconds. This gives the appearance of glass skin that glows under the sun. I absolutely love how this works.
Eye Massage- Gentle and Calming:
Clarisonic mia Smart comes with a new Sonic Awakening Eye Massager that helps to minimise puffy eyes within seconds. This honestly works so well you have to try it to believe. You do need to buy it separately.
The vibration feels very calming and soothing. Somehow I feel more awake after using it with my eye cream in the morning.
Clarisonic App- A Personalized Skincare Routine
Clarisonic Mia Smart comes with Clarisonic app that syncs with your phone and you can track how often you cleanse. Clarisonic app that guides you through the whole process of how to use it and how to make the most out of it.
You will get a lot of different vibration settings ideal for different skin types and needs. It even has different settings for men and women. After you have used it for a while, it will recommend your customised routine designed specifically for your skin.
You can use the Clarisonic app to :
- Set weekly skincare goals.
- Track progress.
- Personalised skincare routine for monthly hormonal outbreaks
- Get recommendations for products based on your skin.
- Helpful videos and tutorials specifically catered for your skin.
- See before and after photos of your skin improvement.
Clarisonic Mia Smart – The Reasons Why You Should Upgrade
The Clarisonic Mia Smart brush head has two parts:
- an outer ring that is fixed and can not move.
- an inner section that is attached to a motor inside the handle.
Clarisonic uses their patented Sonic Skin Cleansing System that uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per seconds to clean your skin from deep within. The brand claims that in just 60 seconds the brush removes 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt than any makeup wipes or cleanser. Your hands can not do that no matter how much you try.
The Clarisonic Mia Smart lasts 100 minutes per charge. This means you only have to charge it twice a month!
Built-in Time Strip:
Every Brush head comes with a built in time strip that activates itself when you attach it to the body. It turns red when you have to replace it.
Compatible with Previous Brush Heads and Applicators:
Did I tell you it is compatible with all the other brush heads and applicators created by Clarisonic? This means all you need is Mia Smart. Your previous brush heads will work much better with the upgraded version.
Benefits of Using Clarisonic Mia Smart 3-in-1
After Using Clarisonic Mia Smart for Only Three Weeks – Pinterest
As no other skincare product can clean your skin as much as Mia Smart can, it enhances your skin quality and complexion drastically.
You will see visible pore minimisation just after a few uses. The oscillation technology helps to fight off acne, dry patches and excess sebum production.
Due to the deep cleaning ritual everyday, you will end up with a fresh, healthy looking skin with increased texture and smoothness.
The vibration also enhances the cell turnover process thus prevents blemishes from occurring. Due to the mild exfoliation, old blemishes go away faster.
The Clarisonic claims that you do not need any extra exfoliators with this cleaning brush head. It gently exfoliates with soft bristles thus there is no risk of irritation.
I personally like to use a mild exfoliating cleanser once a week with it. This helps me to get soft and dewy looking skin within seconds.
Anti-Aging Skin Firming:
The Mia Smart 3 in 1 does not come with their Clarisonic Firming Massage Head but it is compatible with this new version as well. A lot of people have noticed visible improvement after using this massage head for a few weeks.
It firms up your skin by bringing the old elasticity back. You can use it in targeted areas on your face, neck, and chest to help remove unwanted wrinkles or any signs of aging.
How to Clean Your Face with Clarisonic Mia Smart
Here is what you should do to use Clarisonic Mia Smart as your cleansing brush:
- Pairing Clarisonic With The App: After you receive your Mia Smart, the first thing you have to do is download the Clarisonic App and pair it with the device through bluetooth.
- Prepare the Brush: the next thing is to wet the brush with water and then apply your favourite face wash. I like to use a mild, fragrance free face wash.
- Use The App: The app is designed to help you understand how to use your Clarisonic Mia Smart in order to get the result you are looking for. It has a lot of different settings to choose from. You can even create your own customised routine depending on your skin condition.
- Start Cleaning: Wet your face and start following the guideline presented in the app. The app will tell you what to do. Wait for a beep to move on to another section of your face. On average you will spend 20 seconds per section.
- Use Serums and Oils: You can use different serums and oils with your Sonic Awakening Eye Massager to help it absorb faster and deeper.
Downside – The Clarisonic Effect
Now that you are this far into the article, I can safely assume you are planning to buy Clarisonic Mia Smart 3 in 1. But before purchasing it, you need to know about “the Clarisonic effect”. This is a phrase popular in the Clarisonic community.
The concept is that, as your skin is not used to this kind of deep oscillating cleaning, chances are Clarisonic will bring out all the hidden dirt and oils deeply buried in your pores. This sudden removal may cause acne breakout.
Your skin has its own ecosystem. Your skin is used to all those hidden dirt and debris. So sudden removal will cause your skin to produce more oil to fight back any unexpected “attack”. The Clarisonic experts have added a mild cleansing option in the app specifically for the newcomers. If you have never used a clarisonic before, you should use that option and the Clarisonic Mia Smart will customise itself for you. Pretty nifty, right?
The Final Verdict:
The Clarisonic Mia Smart is a new addition to the already beloved Clarisonic family. It is lighter, smarter and faster than the old models. If you already have a Clarisonic and you are thinking whether you should upgrade or not, I personally would say it totally depends on you.
All the new brush heads are compatible with the older models except a few. The new model has a longer battery life and comes with an app. All these things to me are worth upgrading. They are so well made that you will enjoy this for many years to come.
