You may remember a while ago I reviewed the Michael Todd Soniclear cleansing system and absolutely loved it. Well, now I'm back with another Michael Todd review, this time I've been trying out their Honey & Oat deep pore cleanser in conjunction with the Soniclear and wanted to share my thoughts with you on it.
First off, you get 210ml of product, which is pretty decent, for $23 - at today's exchange rate, that works out to be £15.23, so not a crazy amount, it's about in line with Clarins and the like, if not slightly cheaper.
It's a lightweight gel texture - I actually expected it to be really thick with lumpy bits of oat in it, but it's more like the texture of honey, than the texture of oats. It smells lovely, it smells clean, sweet and has that 'organic' scent (if you know what I mean?). I've used it both by itself (using my hands) and with the Soniclear cleansing system and it performs great both ways. I do prefer using it with the Soniclear purely because using it with that helps to exfoliate too, but very gently.
My skin was left feeling lovely, nourished and ready to moisturise. It didn't break me out either, which is a bonus and something you sometimes expect with products like this as they can draw out all the nasties in your skin, but this didn't do that for me, thankfully. It also has a sulphate free 'no tears' formula, so if you do get it in your eyes it shouldn't sting. They also say that it's fine to use on all skin types, but it's best used by people with normal, dry and mature skin.
All in all I really liked this, it's become a part of my evening skincare routine, I don't use it every day, I use it typically about twice a week, alternating it with other pieces I use - maybe I'll do a skincare routine video for you, since it's changed quite a bit since my last video :)
