A little while ago, I chatted about how I’m trying to better myself, and one of my first steps to that was feeling better from the outside, in (vain, I know, but you know what they say: when you look good, you feel good). I totally revamped my skincare products by swapping out my generic face wash and lotion for derma e®’s Evenly Radiant line, and I think the results speak for themselves (check them out here).
However, in my experience, even the amazing derma e® isn’t foolproof against stress induced acne and breakouts due to big hormonal influxes on its own.
I recently decided to take the plunge into a facial brush after hearing several friends rave over theirs. However, there are SO many brands on the market, and of the more well known brands there are several different models and its all a little overwhelming! After a lot of research, and a few emails between myself and a Michael Todd representative, I decided on the Soniclear Petite for a multitude of reasons:
First off, Soniclear Petite’s sonic cleansing brush is antimicrobial, and not only that but it’s the world’s first! That means there is actually technology built into Soniclear Petite’s brushes to guard against “up to 99.9% of stain and odor causing bacteria so your brushes stay cleaner, fresher longer for up to 6 months“. That also means I won’t have to buy replacement brush heads as often as other brand’s, and my inner cheapskate is celebrating that with this particular brush, I will be saving money!
From Michael Todd:
“Sonic cleansing can create a breeding ground for microbial contamination when skin cells, makeup and moisture residue combine with bacteria that cling to the brush bristles between cleansings. Traditinal rotary and sonic skin cleansing systems don’t offer protection against bacteria, so the team at Michael Todd set out to find a solution. After extensive research and testing, we found a way to incorporate safe, effective and durable antimicrobial technology into the brush heads at the time of manufacture. The result is SONICLEAR, a revolutionary sonic cleansing brush that throoughly cleanses the skin and then protects itself against microbial contamination leaving the brushes cleaner, fresher for longer.”
Next, it’s approved for all skin types! How do they do this? Soniclear Petite has three customizable cleansing speeds so you can tailor your sonic cleansing experience to your skin’s exact needs and concerns. Changing speeds is as easy as tapping on the up or down arrow buttons, and you can choose from Low, 2nd, and High speeds. I’ve only had mine for about a week now, and I definitely have more sensitive skin, so I’m using it on the lowest speed and probably will until my skin gets a little more acclimated to the new routine. However, just because I’m using the lowest speed doesn’t mean that I’m not seeing results!
