So lately I have seen a lot of sonic skin cleansing systems in commercials and in stores. So many brands make them, at all different price points, it is impossible to know which ones really work. I had never tried any sort of sonic skin cleansing system but was really interested.
When I first read about the SONICLEAR Anti-microbial Skin Cleansing System I was very intrigued. SONICLEAR is the worlds first antimicrobial sonic skin cleansing system. With other systems, stain and odor causing bacteria can grow on brushes when skin cells, makeup and moisture combine with bacteria that cling to bristles between cleansing. Gross! Traditional 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, they 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 thoroughly cleanses the skin and then protects itself against microbial contamination leaving the brushes cleaner, fresher for longer.
The secret behind SONICLEAR‘s germ fighting abilities is its exclusive LIFE™ antimicrobial product protection. SONICLEAR combines LIFE’s patent-pending organic antimicrobial technology with another EPA registered LIFE antimicrobial to render microbes unable to reproduce and interfere with their uptake of nutrients. Safe, effective and long-lasting, the antimicrobial product protection in SONICLEAR doesn’t wash out or wear off so the brushes stay cleaner, fresher for longer.

SONICLEAR’s brush head, bristles and brush cap were submitted to a leading international testing laboratory for antimicrobial testing in accordance with the globally recognized ISO 22196 protocol which measures the bacterial growth that may occur on a product surface after being exposed to two common forms of bacteria. After 24 hours, all treated SONICLEAR surfaces showed at least 99.9% reduction in bacteria compared to the untreated control.
SONICLEAR uses a patent-pending sonic-wave powered technology to micro-massage away dirt and other impurities and gently exfoliate at brush speeds in excess of 300 times per second. Slower spinning rotary cleansing brushes without sonic technology can pull or tug the skin causing redness or irritation. Powerful, yet gentle enough even for sensitive skin, SONICLEAR removes makeup 6x better and cleanses 2x better than with hands alone.
When the team at Michael Todd offered to send me a SONICLEAR for free to review, I couldn’t resist – It sounded wonderful! When the package arrived I couldn’t wait to use it, but the first time you use it, it requires a 24 hour charge. No big deal, I just used it the next day.
To cleanse, wet your skin and the brush head with warm water, then you can apply cleanser to your skin or the brush head. MICHAEL TODD offers cleansers optimized for gentle daily use with SONICLEAR such as Honey and Oat Gentle Deep Pore Cleanser and Peppermint Wake-Up Daily Body Wash. SONICLEAR may also be used with exfoliating scrubs with soft, rounded particles such as Michael Todd True Naturals Jojoba Charcoal Facial Polish. They do not recommend use of SONICLEAR with jagged exfoliating particles such as shells.
I really love that they include two brush heads – one smaller one for your face, and one larger one for the rest of your body, and the base automatically senses which head you have attached and adjusts the speed settings. Each brush head has 3 different speeds. I really love that it comes with an automatic timer that beeps and pauses for a second to let you know it is time to move to the next area of the face or body.
Another feature I love is that it is waterproof, so you can use it in the shower. I love to use it on my legs to exfoliate them before I shave! I also love using it on my knees, ankles and elbows as now that it is winter, they tend to get really dry.
I also had a really bad scratch on my wrist from when Oliver got outside at our new home. It was bleeding pretty bad. My skin takes a long time to heal, and I have scars all over. I have used the SONICLEAR to gently cleanse and exfoliate the area about every other day and it looks so much better! My skin had been very raised and rough after the scabs fell off, and now only a couple of spots are raised and the whole scratch is less “angry” red and more of a pink color. Oliver had run past me as I was coming in with bags and I tried to grab him as he crossed the threshold but it actually scared him and he used his back leg to scratch me pretty bad. He ran down our walk way, cut across the lawn, and that’s when Tony came out and said, ” Oliver get in the house NOW!”, and wouldn’t you know that cat turned around and ran back in the house with his tail between his legs! We had only been in the house a few days, and I don’t think Oliver realized that door lead outside. We believe he became disoriented once outside and just didn’t know where to go until he heard Tony’s voice. Now Oliver will look out the door, but if we go to open it, he runs away now, so, lesson learned on his part.
SONICLEAR has been featured on the Rachel Ray show, and her expert says it’s the only one she recommends for sensitive skin!
Im not going to sugar coat the price on this – it’s expensive. Regular price on their website is $150 but As of noon EST on 12/2 It was on sale for $90 as part of an Extended Cyber Monday promotion. I have no idea how long that promotion will still be active.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
