Creating an everyday routine for my skin has been important for the last couple of years. My dry, sensitive skin requires consistency and patience; and it can become overwhelming searching for the right products and facial tools that won’t cause irritation. Thankfully, I recently had the opportunity to test out two beauty devices in my skincare routine from a brand called Michael Todd Beauty.
Who is Michael Todd Beauty?

You know what else is great? These facial tools can be used in the comfort of your own home! That means more money in your pocket, I’m sure we all would love that right?
Michael Todd Beauty sent me the following beauty devices:
Let’s go ahead and talk about the purpose of these tools and how they worked for my dry, sensitive skin!
Sonicsmooth | Sonic Dermaplaning System
Dermaplaning is a method that was new to me. I’ve never heard of it but it looked interesting. The Sonicsmooth gently shaves the skin’s surface and removes dead skin cells along with peach fuzz—so it’s pretty much a physical exfoliating procedure. Here are some benefits of Dermaplaning:
- Brightens your complexion
- Provides an even skin tone
- Increases collagen production
- Helps to reveal smooth skin
The Sonicsmooth came as a kit and included the following items:
- Sonic Smooth Beauty Device
- 8 single-use safety tips
- Wireless charging storage
- Wall adapter
- Pre-Treatment Cleanser
- Post-Treatment Gel
How to Use the Products
Before using the Sonicsmooth, you want to prep your skin by using the Pre-Treatment Cleanser also called Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser. This cleanser is formulated with Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree, and Aloe Vera Juice—these ingredients have always worked well for my sensitive skin.
Using the pre-treatment before the beauty device will ensure all excess oil and impurities are removed from your skin. The Sonicsmooth is most effective when your skin is free from build up! After using the cleanser, my skin felt tight and dry, however, that’s exactly what I expected. Although it was dry, my face felt fresh and it didn’t cause any irritation or stinging.
The Sonicsmooth has 3-speed settings: low, medium, and high. Since this was my first time using any dermaplaning device, I used it on the low-speed setting. When using this beauty device, you want to hold your skin taut and use “feather-like” strokes in a downward motion. It’s important to avoid using this on your nose and lips.
My Results from the Sonicsmooth
The first time I used it, I couldn’t believe how much dead skin I had on the blade. It was actually disgusting. Take a look at the picture below:
Yeah I know right? Although this was nasty, it felt good to know that all the gunk was removed from my skin. Every time you use the Sonicsmooth, you should throw away the blade and replace it with a new one. It’s best to use this in your skincare routine once a week.
Afterwards, your face will feel dry and it may turn slightly red. Now I understand why they added the Post-Treatment Gel with this kit! The gel contains nourishing ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Seaweed Extract, and Hyaluronic Acid—which made it perfect for hydrating and calming my sensitive skin.
I was nervous when I first used the Sonicsmooth, however, it’s easy to use and the results you achieve are worth it. My skin felt smooth and appeared brighter after using this—where has this beauty device been all of my life? If you’ve always wanted to try Dermaplaning, then check out the kit on their website. Whenever you run out of the cleanser, gel, or safety tips, they do have a replacement bundle which is affordable.
Sonic Eraser Pro
The next beauty device I received from Michael Todd Beauty is the Sonic Eraser Pro. This tool replaces your fingertips in your skincare routine when applying your serums, creams, and moisturizers. It also provides a stimulating massage to revive the look of dull skin and warms up to 107 degrees which is an ideal temperature to gently open your pores and allow your products to absorb better.
The Benefits of Using the Sonic Eraser Pro
If you ever feel like your products sit on top of your skin, then adding the Sonic Eraser Pro in your routine will be perfect! I love using this to apply my serums and facial oils in the morning and at night. Here are more benefits you’ll receive from this beauty device:
- Improves your skin’s moisture levels
- Provides firmer, brighter skin
- Makes your skin more smooth
- Allows your products to effectively penetrate deeper into your skin
Although this is an anti-aging device, using this is beneficial for anyone no matter your age! There’s nothing wrong with using facial tools or products that target signs of aging in your 20’s.
When you use the Sonic Eraser Pro, you will feel a warm sensation. However, you shouldn’t experience any discomfort. This beauty device is really easy to use! You simply add your product directly to the treatment head and start gliding it in circular motions on your face. It turns on once it touches your face and turns off once you’re finished applying your products.
What’s the point of having good quality skincare products if they aren’t absorbing into your skin? Using the Sonic Eraser Pro will ensure you receive the benefits from your serums, oils, and moisturizers in your routine. It’s also soothing and relaxing to use since you’re giving your face a nice massage.
Should You Purchase These Devices?
If you’re looking for a brighter complexion and more hydrated skin, then I recommend checking out both of these facial tools on their website. I enjoyed trying out both beauty devices and I do believe everyone can benefit from having them in their routine.
Having these facial tools are convenient and you won’t have to worry about paying someone else hundreds of dollars to do a procedure you can use in the comfort of your home!
Remember, a good skincare routine is all about consistency, patience, and determination. You’ll start to notice improvements if you stay on track and use good quality facial tools and products in your everyday beauty routine!
