Soniclear vs Clarisonic, Battle of the Sonic Facial Brushes

Soniclear and Clarisonic are perhaps the biggest names in sonic cleansing brushes today. They’re packed with features, they have a solid following, and they seem to be the most well-built. In this Soniclear vs Clarisonic report, we’ll give you their similarities and differences.

Clarisonic vs SoniclearFirst, some quick notes about the two cleansing systems. Clarisonic brushes are the brainchild of a Washington-based company called Pacific Bioscience Laboratories, Inc., which was later bought by L’Oreal. According to their website, the sonic brush was invented in 2004 and since then, the company has sold “over 10 million of its patented design.”

The Clarisonic line of facial brushes consists of several models, which include the following: Mia 1, Mia 2, Mia 3 or Aria, Mia Fit, Alpha Fit, SMART Profile, and Plus. Aside from these devices, Clarisonic also sells skin care products for both men and women.

The Soniclear, on the other hand, is the product of cosmetics company Michael Todd. According to their website, the company started with the idea of using natural ingredients to “deliver extraordinary results.”

The Soniclear is marketed under three products – Petite, Elite, and Elite Deluxe. The differences are shown here. As advertised, these brushes are the “world’s first antimicrobial sonic cleansing system.” Another unique feature these brushes have (except Petite) is the C-Boost Technology, which stimulates collagen and elastin production.
