Any thing that will speed up my beauty routine, and still give me glowing skin is always welcome in my world. I lead a busy life, and really don’t have time, especially in the morning for more than a 2 step facial regime.
But Alas, I live in busy London city, and whilst I love it, I struggle with the Hard water, pollution levels, and finding time for alot of TLC.
Herald in the new Smart Clarisonic! It cleanses within a minute, and I feel pampered.
Early on this month, I was fortunate (I choose the word ‘fortunate’ ,because I never take these opportunities for granted) enough to host a champagne reception at the Clarisonic counter in House of Fraser Oxford Circus, to pre -launch the new generation of the Clarisonic device, called ‘SMART’ and it is appropriately named too.

The smart device is similar to a sonic or electric toothbrush, only bigger and gentler. It’s smart because unlike it’s predecessor, it automatically tells you when to move from one area of the face to the next. Furthermore, It knows to go softer around your checks and work more effectively around the T-zone.
So, why do I like the smart..?
It cleanses my face in 1 minute flat!
It’s aesthetically pleasing, with four little buttons, making it user friendly.
It’s 11 better at removing make up, than hands alone, cleansing my skin from damaging pollution.
I can use my own skin products along side the SMART device.
My skin products, especially Vitamin C serums, absorb 61% more into my skin after a SMART cleanse, (This has been clinically proven).
Clicking on the Smart mode, means a beep sound will tell me when to move to the next area of my face, (which means I, don’t have to think about it)
Pressing done on the turbo button, flushes the water deeper into my pores, and removes more impurities.
I have the option of a manual mode, and can switch between different speeds.
There is also a brush for the rest of my body, when I have time to buff it up.
Other devices currently on the market vibrate and only provide a surface cleanse – The SMART, Oscillates so there is no damage to the skin surface and elasticity. Instead, the oscillation flexes the skin pores at a sonic movement of 300 Oscillations per second .This creates fluid forces which work with water and your daily cleanser, flushing out the pores, resulting in a deeper cleanse.
Phew, so there you have the science, from a layman’s point of view..
Now a bit more about how did evening unfolded, including more champagne, pampering sessions with the SMART, make up by LANCOME, hair treatments and styling by AVEDA & the raffle draw.

The wonderful Clarisonic ladies, Liza and Zoe, gave a presentation on the SMART device.
The Smart device for the face
Everyone was presented with a goody bag, including our lovely guests who could not make it at the last minute.
Liza took each guest down to the treatment room, to experience the SMART device and a relaxing massage.
Liza finished off the Smart treatment, by applying LANCOME’s Advance Genifique serum to the face.
LANCOME also pampered the guests with Champagne, and make overs of their choice.
More yummy food from AVEDA, including their signature Licorice tea, which I love!
Lovely Laura and her Team at AVEDA, used a special camera, to zoom 160 times into the guest scalps, offering advice on the conditions of their scalps, and easy styling.
