An Amazing At Home Skincare Tool, The Total Refresher You Must Try By Michael Todd Beauty and Barbies Beauty Bits

Similar to the obsession, that Tim "The Toolman" Taylor, from the TV show Home Improvement has with his tools, I am like that when it comes to my skincare devices!  As a self-professed skincare fiend, I am always on the search for the next new skincare device. While I love going to the spa for treatments, they can be costly! So, when I can find a skincare tool, that I can trust to use in the comfort of my own home, I want to share it with the world. And beauties do I have a winner for you, with the Total Refresher by Michael Todd Beauty!

If you are a frequent reader, you know that I love me some Michael Todd Beauty! Not only do they offer a great innovative organic, cruelty-free skincare line, but they are always creating amazing products and sonic devices that give us the treatments, like those we’d find at a spa or a dermatologist's office! So, if you want to learn about this amazing at home skincare device by Michael Todd Beauty, continue reading.

It’s Tool Time With Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher
I wanted first to come out and say that skincare tools on the market are not going to stop our skin from aging as it is a natural progression. They can, however, help delay the process as well as contributing to improving our damaged skin. This is why it is so important to make sure that I am selecting the correct product(s) for my delicate facial skin, from a reputable company, as I am not willing to put just anything on it or near it! Finding products from a company that can help me to achieve the best results is what I am seeking, and the Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher Microdermabrasion System helps deliver just that.

This 3-in-1 skin rejuvenating system is truly like a full spa experience with an aesthetician as it offers extraction, skin resurfacing and a soothing post-treatment.

Beauties, this tool is the first I’ve used that offers this type of combination, making it as close to a professional treatment.  Not only has it helped to get rid of dead skin cells, which can accentuate my wrinkles, but it also targets enlarged and congested pores, that may have blackheads or even milia!

As mentioned above, The Total Refresher is the first ever skincare device that combines a microdermabrasion exfoliation, in combination with a pore extractor and a soothing mister.  These combined is what creates the 3 step process to smooth, remove and soothe.  And if that wasn’t good enough, it also comes with four treatment heads to help you achieve a fresh, radiant complexion.

How To Use
Prep the skin
According to the instructions, for optimal results, Michael Todd suggests using a degreasing product to completely remove all surface oils from the skin's surface, like their  Charcoal Detox Pore Cleanser. BUT if you don’t have it any degreasing cleanser is compatible. Another option is to steam the face or use a warm cloth as these too will open up the pores.

Fill the mister: This device has a new generation mist option that can be loaded with your favorite toner, micellar water, or plain water.  This is a fantastic feature to assist in hydrating and replenishing moisture in the skin. 
The filter: It is already installed, but you want to make sure that you always have a filter in place, you can’t operate without one. Refillable ones come with the tool, so change out accordingly.

Speeds: The device has three speeds, pick the speed desired.

Treatment Heads: There is a treatment head for each treatment to give you optimal results, see below.

Yep, diamonds are a girl's best friend, and this rejuvenation system may sure become your second as the treatment head has a Diamond Tip exfoliator.  While there are not real diamonds in this skincare gadget, the state of the art exfoliator is used to remove the dead skin by gently exfoliating, eliminating any rough or uneven texture. Additionally it...
  1. Helps to minimize pores, and decreases the appearance of some skin damage caused by the sun. 
  2. Contributes to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.  
  3. Another benefit in removing dead skin with microdermabrasion is that it can help to aid in the penetration of your skincare products!
  4. How often should you do this? If you have dry skin once a week for 5 minutes and for oily skin twice a week for 5 minutes.  
Also, doing this step first helps to prep the skin for the next step as it removes excess dead skin cells that form a "cap" over pores, clearing a path for removal while utilizing the pore-unclogging function.

It's time to clean out the gunk in those pores, baby! Yep, no need to go to an aesthetician for pore extraction, as this refresher kit comes with three suction treatment heads varying in size and strength allowing for customization suction removal of unwanted impurities from pores for a complete detoxification of the complexion.
  • Large Pore Extractor: This treatment head is used to suck away dirt and debris from the skin's surface and clogged pores.
  • Small Pore Extractor: This one is amazing as it is utilized for the removal of blackheads and for me what was great, I could use it for removing Milia bumps (a little white bump that occurs when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin). I’ve had this bump for a few years and planned on going to go to the dermatologist to have it removed, but I was able to extract it out with this!
  • Oval Pore Extractor:

This is the last step, and I love this as I can use it with my favorite toner.  Toner is excellent in helping to replenish, hydrate and nourish skin.

When it comes to using the total refresher misting option, there are not really any clear directions on how to do this, so here you go.
  1. Fill with your favorite toner in the reservoir located on the back of the device.
  2. There is an enclosed funnel that comes with the device, this is what you use to add your favorite toner.
  3. To use you want to make sure that the device has been turned off (use the bottom button for this).
  4. To activate you want to hold the top button down for 2 secs.
  5. You want to shake it a few times to get it started, then mist away!
  6. To turn off you want to hold down for seconds.
  7. IMPORTANT: You only can use the mister when the suction portion is off, I did not realize this at first.
Step Four: CLEAN
Please make sure that you are thoroughly cleaning this device as the last thing you want is to put bacteria or dead skin cells on your skin.

You may notice some redness, as I did. But no worries as this is normal and will subside after a few hours. Also, for you skincare junkies out there like myself you do not want to use an exfoliator prior or after using the Michael Todd Beauty Refresher. Finish with a great moisturizer with an SPF, but you want to stay away from any super-thick moisturizers that could cause extra sebum buildup. I personally like to add a clarify serum into my skincare regemin to help my skin stay more refreshed, clean, and ready!

Concluding Thoughts
AMAZING to say the least.  This skincare tool will most certainly be added to my skincare tool box so to speak.  I love the idea that it offers multiple skincare treatments all in one which you all know I love multi-purpose products as they save you money in the long run.  Plus, the fact that this can be done in the comfort of my own home, making this spa rejuvenation system even better!

I would say, please make sure to read the manual thoroughly as the different extractors are not recommended for all areas of the face and most important always do a patch test before placing on your face.  I tested them all on the under area of my arm as some suction may be too powerful and you don’t want to be testing first on your face!

So, if you want to get buffed and beautiful with a sweep of this skin-transforming microdermabrasion then make sure to check out Soft Surroundings or Michael Todd Beauty and enjoy this spa like experience in the comfort of your own home!
