Is skincare important to you? It really never used to be for me. Granted, I didn't wear much makeup a few years ago but even wearing mascara was wiped off with a baby wipe and whatever was leftover was just left there. GROSS. Shame, young Noelle, for shame.

Now that I've found how important the correct care is to your skin, I can't get enough of cleaners, moisturizers, tools - I'm addicted! - which brings me to our review today! It's one that's been reviewed for a few months now. It's the Michael Todd Soniclear Petite
The Michael Todd Soniclear Petite comes as a four piece set which includes the Soniclear Petite itself, an antimicrobial face brush + a cover, a charger/storage cradle and a charger. The Soniclear is the first of its kind. The brush heads are treated with LIFE antimicrobial product protection in the manufacturing process to inhibit 99.9% of stain and odor causing bacteria. That means that you don't have to replace the heads as often as you would with other cleansing tools. They recommend changing them every six months.
So, I was sent this back in December and to be honest, it wasn't love at first use, guys. I'm not sure if it was my skin that particular week or what but I found it to be super abrasive and it just wasn't working for me. I ended up walking away from it for a week and then came back to it again.
I'm so happy I did! Once I tried it again, I found the brush to be incredibly soft and worked well with a bunch of different cleansers. I have no clue what happened that first week! I found my face to be softer and more supple-feeling after the first use and continued to feel that way with every use. I did find that I didn't need to use this every single day and night. I ended up just using it at night, every other night otherwise it felt a little drying. I find that happens with most cleansing tools and my skin anyway so it's not out of the norm for me.

Some quick info on the Soniclear Petite:
  • The brushes move 18,000 times per minute.
  • It comes with an automatic cleansing timer (so nice to have!) to let you know when it's time to move on to the next spot.
  • Has three speeds to tailor to your liking.
  • It's cordless and waterproof! Note: I found that I loved using it in the shower! It has made my legs and arms significantly smoother!
Overall: I love product reviews that have a happy ending! At first, I wasn't a fan and now it's a regular and major player in my skincare routine. I do recommend, depending on your skin type, only using this once a day or even every other day.
