It’s Clarisonic’s “most advanced” creation yet, but does this 2-in-1 device stay true to the hype? In this Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift review, we’re giving you a no-nonsense report of what users have experienced.
The Uplift is a step-up to the most basic Clarisonic models such as the Mia 2. Now, it’s no longer confined to just a cleansing brush. It’s also a micro-firming massage device for the face.
Read on to find out what the changes are, and whether or not they’re worth the price increase.
What’s New with the Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift?
The Uplift is a “spin-off” to the Smart Profile, a purely cleansing system equipped with a 4-speed handle and a new brush head targeting the body, called the Smart Turbo Massage Body Brush Head.
Eventually, the Smart Profile was discontinued in favor of the Smart Profile Uplift.
So what are the big changes to expect with the Uplift?
The most obvious is the introduction of the anti-aging firming massage head, a contoured and triangular attachment that targets fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck.
Aside from that, the Smart Profile Uplift has 4 speed settings plus a body mode that automatically adjusts the speed if you switch to a body brush head.
It also has a smart sensor to remind you to change brush heads or when the unit needs recharging.
Does it still charge via inductive charging? Yes. It still has its own USB-type charger that you can magnetically attach to the device when it needs recharging.

Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift Review – Does it Work?
To give you our full report for this Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift review, we went ahead and scoured the internet for vlogs, comments, and feedback about this product. Below is a summary of what we found out.
Note that since this is a 2-in-1 device, it was evaluated separately as a cleansing brush and as an anti-aging massaging device.
First, let’s talk about the Uplift’s top ugrade – the anti-aging firming massage head. Does it work like it said it does on wrinkles and fine lines? Here’s what consumers say about their experience.
This 37-year-old beauty vlogger has an interesting observation after using the Uplift for three months. According to her, her “jawline is so much more defined” and it “feels slimmer.” She added that she lost weight, and she was worried about sagging skin. But although she’s not sure whether it’s the Smart Profile Uplift’s doing, she says she looks younger.
For this beauty vlogger who used the product for over 12 weeks, the experience is also positive. She said she saw some improvements in “the tightness of my jawline and some of the wrinkles that I have.” She even showed a before-and-after images to support her experience.
Now, let’s talk about the device as a cleansing brush…
As an improved version, the Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift has a few features that can provide a better user experience, but you may not find them really necessary especially if you’re already happy with the basic models such as the Clarisonic Mia.
For instance, if you’re the type of person who likes to be in control when it comes to the cleansing process, you’d probably end up not using the T-timer function. If you have sensitive skin and you have your own products to use, you’d probably don’t want to try the added face cleanser.
Here’s a warning…
Don’t use the cleansing brush head twice a day, everyday! According to this beauty vlogger, doing this made her skin dry. She also added that instead of reducing the breakouts, this bad practice has made her skin worse.
But when she switched to a nightly routine, she had seen a huge difference and “it’s been working wonders for my skin.”
Do You Really Need It?
To end this Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift review, let us tell you this.
The Smart Profile Uplift is an added luxury when it comes to its basic function as a cleansing brush. Meaning, you’ll still get the same benefits if you stick to your Clarisonic Mia 1. But if you want the added features, then by all means, go ahead and get this unit.
As for its anti-aging function, several users say that the Smart Profile Uplift has helped them relax, and it feels like it’s been doing something good to them especially on the area that they massage it with. In short, it works.
For this, we really want to recommend that you get the Uplift, but we’re hitting the brakes because we know how insanely expensive this product is. Even if you can buy the anti-aging firming massage head separately, it only fits to a Smart Profile Uplift device.
That said, if budget is not a concern, then go ahead and get yourself an Uplift. But if it is, consider some alternatives like the Abody facial massager.
