Are Skin Cleansing Tools Worth the Money?


Yes, depending on the brand that your purchase, skin cleaning tools are well worth the money.

There’s a crop of new cleansing tools on the beauty scene, and some are as techy as your iPhone while others are as simple as a glorified washcloth. Many of the skin hygiene conscious are already convinced that fingertips and washcloths are inadequate for degriming their faces. Sonic facial-cleansing brushes have revolutionized the way we think about washing our face. But with all this new technology on an old practice is it all worth the money?

If you haven’t ponied up and purchased one already, there’s never been a better time to invest—cleansing brushes are more popular than ever, and Michael Todd has joined the market.

Before I put Michael Todd Soniclear to the test, I had to do some research to make sure I wasn’t going to be doing more damage than cleansing to my skin. I found out that the more times the brush moves per second, the less abrasive it will be. In drugstore versions, a pad or bristles move back and forth or rotate anywhere from four to five times a second, while in more expensive brushes like Soniclear ($149,, the bristles do this more than 300 times a second. In addition to the speed of the brush, you have to make sure the device is charged and apply the proper pressure to the skin.

There are some habits that we should avoid when using these high tech skin cleaning tools. First and most important is to not use these brushes too frequently. The recommended usage to rid the skin of debris and sebum from the day is a nighttime cleansing. Next is the most obvious rule to follow, this rule should apply to any beauty product, you should not share your brushes with family or firends. You can transfer bacteria to each other. Lastly, you should not use these brushes with any manual or chemical exfoliant. You are already putting stress on your skin and it is quite vulnerable. The exfoliant will over irritate the skin.

There are plenty of benefits to the deep cleanse that Soniclear will deliver. It can remove the top layer of the skin allowing your your skin treatments (creams, serums or salicylic acid lotions) to soak in more thoroughly.
