Not one to rest on the runaway success of the Mia, its sonic oscillating face brush, the team at Clarisonic has developed a new "smart" face brush to better cleanse your skin.
Named the Smart Profile, the brush (pictured at right) will debut in select dermatologist offices next month and will hit store shelves early next year. According to WWD, it will feature a microchip in the brush head that helps the tool respond to different skin needs.
"For one, we enhanced the turbo button," said Clarisonic's co-founder, senior vp and global general manager. "If you now are cleaning the area around the nose [or another congested spot] the motor picks up 9 percent more and cleans out that area a little bit more."
All that intelligence comes with an increased price: $265 per device. The brush will also have a longer batter life than previous iterations and boasts additional improvements such as a signal for users to replace brush heads and a better interface.
