Review: Michael Todd True Organics Soniclear



Don't know why, but I was never into the whole sonic face brush thing. "A face cloth or a toothbrush will work the same, no?" Or so I thought. I found that with a towel, I kept scrubbing away at my face, which causes it to dry out faster and/or turn red. And honestly, I never tried using a toothbrush - it seems kind of silly. Even so, I never got into the whole sonic face cleansing thing.

I discovered Soniclear through YouTube and was especially intrigued by its claim to be the world's first antimicrobial skin cleansing system. The technology behind it helps keep their brushes clean between cleansings by offering protection against bacteria, stain, and odour build-up. I found this claim to be true after using Soniclear for over almost two months. The brushes still look and feel brand new and very white.

The only place I really use my Soniclear is in the shower. I love that I don't have to worry about getting it wet. Since the brush shouldn't be used near the eye area, I use baby wipes to remove my eye makeup. If they're gentle enough for a baby's skin, they're sure as hell gentle enough for me! And they're much cheaper than regular makeup removing wipes. In the past two months, I've only charged my Soniclear once - not including the first 24 hour charge that you're supposed to put it through. I love see my makeup scrubbed off my skin and washed off the brush so easily. You'll know what I mean if you ever use one.

Having never used a Clarisonic before, I found a table online that compares Soniclear against the four different Clarisonic systems. Clarisonic ranges from $125 to $225, while Soniclear is $150. Soniclear beats all the Clarisonic brushes in the following:
  • Antimicrobial protection
  • Number of speeds (six)
  • Battery life (35 minutes, but I've actually used it for longer!)

Both the Soniclear and the Clarisonic Plus ($225) have the following:
  • Non-slip hand grip
  • Universal charging/storage cradle
  • Both face and body brushes are included in one package

I purchased my Soniclear and the Michael Todd Charcoal Detox straight from the MT site, but a few weeks later, I saw it for $99.99 on Beyond the Rack! I quickly told my friend about the deal and ordered it for her. Of course, I ordered a few products for myself as well.

  1. I used a clarisonic and it broke down within a year so I swore off these types of brushes for their quality.. The antibacterial part of the Michael Todd is interesting tho and I mihht order one.. Thanks for reviewing! Very helpful

  3. Hey, I have been charging my soniclear for over 24hrs and it still isn't blinking green. Should I be concerned? What should I do? Thank you

    1. Hi there! I had the same concern, then realized this thing doesn't even blink green. I'm not sure why the manual says that. The red blinks are fine. : ) To date, I still haven't charged it after this blog post and I've been using it regularly!

    3. Hmm.. I wish I was there to help you! Which button are you pressing? After it's fully charged, you press the bottom button to turn it on. The top button is used to adjust the speed. You also need to make sure the brush head is properly clicked into place or it won't run. Let me know if this works!

    5. Oh no! Good luck! Let me know what was wrong. I'd love to keep this in mind in case it happens to me in the future. My friend also bought one last month, but hers works perfectly fine. Hope this is just a one off thing!
