This time around Makeup Wars is talking Beauty Tech Tools. I’ve decided to introduce 3 new ones that I’ve been lovingly using. I’ve repeated others so many times that it’s time to recommend some that you’d love to own or even give as gifts this upcoming holiday season. These were provided to me by the companies for review but they didn’t make me love them, that’s my own!
MICHAEL TODD TRUE ORGANICS SONICLEAR
Michael Todd True Organics Soniclear
What you get with Soniclear is a cleansing machine for face and body. It comes with two different size brushes unlike more expensive machines that are only for the face or even more expensive ones that do both. This covers it all while being deep cleaning and gentle to your skin.

Soniclear has 6 speeds so you can find the one that best suits your needs. When you use this with your cleansers you’ll find that the serums and moisturizers you use after absorb more efficiently into your skin.

What makes the brush on Soniclear so unique is that it has exclusive built-in LIFE antimicrobial product protection. One of the biggest complaints with Clarisonic is keeping the brush fresh. That’s not a problem now that Michael Todd True Organics has credited the Soniclear. The innovation of the brush keeps it bacteria and odor free. This is a true sonic machine, it doesn’t just spin or vibrate to cleanse, it uses true sonic technology. You’ll want this on your holiday wishlist for sure.
INFINITI PRO by CONAIR 3Q BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRYER
INFINITI PRO by CONAIR 3Q BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRYER
At some time in your life I’m sure you’ve owned a Conair hair dryer. I know I’ve owned many. But nothing I’ve tried from Conair has come close to this Infiniti Pro 3Q dryer. It is the most technologically forward machine they’ve created.
INFINITI PRO by CONAIR INIFINIT PRO3Q BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRYER
3Q stands for Quick, Quiet, Quality and I am here to tell you that they got that right. The hair dryer dries my hair very quickly giving it less time to become frizzy. It dries equivalent to a 2000 Watt machine. It’s not noisy and it’s not heavy; all big assets. It has Titanium Ceramic Technology which uses infrared heat to gently blow dry your hair. The ionic technology helps reduce frizz and enhance shine.
Conair Infiniti Pro switches
I love the way the controls are situated since I don’t accidentally change them when using the dryer. It has 3 heat and 2 styling speeds as well as a cool shot to help set your hair. It comes with both a concentrator attachment and a diffuser attachment. My last dryer only had the concentrator so I had to try to find a diffuser that would fit it. Not always easy.
Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q attachments
This retails for $139 but I’ve found it for both $119 and $99 (Walmart) which makes it a good price point for a special lady’s gift.
The Voluum is the newest and most interesting hair styler on the market. If you have midlength or longer hair then this is the tool you want to banish the flatness and add oomph as you do.
Voloom wafflelike plates
It looks like a crimping iron but it’s not going to give you that old style hair unless you want it. Instead it’s for creating more volume in the underlayers of your hair. Pin up the top of your hair, then use the fast acting unit to create layers. You don’t leave it on very long, I count to 5 and release, then move down and repeat. On my current shoulder length hair I use it only 3 times but when my hair was longer I used it about 4 times per side. When you are done, unpin your top layers and let them cover the work you’ve done. What you end up with is volume and smoothness. It lasts for about 2 days for me. I can also use it on second day hair as a way to perk it up. With that I use a heat protectant, let it dry and then follow the same procedure above.
When you buy the Voloom HERE you’ll also get a heat protection case, a teasing brush and 3 clips that are perfect for holding up your hair. This is the gift for the girl who loves styling her hair yet seems to have it all. They don’t have the VOLOOM but they’ll love it once they do.
