Michael Todd True Organics Skincare Review
Feed Your Skin with Michael Todd True Organics
"You'll love what's in it. You'll love even more what's not."
It seems every time you turn around, there’s another high-tech, high-performance skincare ingredient hitting the market - and many of them are so complex, one practically needs a degree in chemistry to decipher what they do. However, today’s leading beauty brands aren’t looking under microscopes for the most innovative and effective skincare ingredients; instead they’re stopping by their local farmer’s markets and grocer. Chemists and doctors at Michael Todd studied the topical effects of food with a goal of complete nutrition for the skin. They used as many organics as possible without compromising performance and sans added water or unhealthy chemicals. Stars such as Carmen Electra, Jillian Michaels, Tori Spelling, Lisa Vanderpump, and RHONYC star Sonja Morgan are all fans of Michael Todd True Organics.
Marrying nature and science, Michael Todd True Organics created recipes that resulted in effective organically based skincare solutions for all skin types. Whether your needs are to treat dry, blemished, aging, oily, sensitive, sun-damaged, pigmented or normal/combination skin, Michael Todd is committed to improving skin health by developing the highest quality of products and raising the bar once again in formulation and ingredient technology.
“Mother Nature has given us superfoods that play double duty,” says Lewis Hendler, founder of Michael Todd True Organics. “Consider the avocado as the overachiever of beauty superfoods. It's rich in protective antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which help keep skin plump and smooth. Our Avocado Mango Mask unclogs pores, reduce bacteria, and nourish and heal on and below the skin’s surface. Our products represent a synergy between science and the certified organic plants and fruits we use. The result is an unsurpassed skincare experience that enhances and protects the skin for years to come without the use of potentially harmful ingredients so common in many other brands.”

Eye-O-Sonic Ultrasonic Ionic Serum Infuser: $69.00
If you battle issues around the eyes, meet your new favorite skin care tool. The degree to which any serum or cream product works depends partly on the ability of the ingredients to get to the right place, which means it has to penetrate into the skin. That's where eye-o-sonic comes in. It combines ultrasonic waves at 160 oscillations per second plus ion technology to increase the absorption of eye creams and serums deeper into the skin where they can do the most good.
Directions: It's simple to use. After your normal routine of washing and drying your face, apply a dab of eye cream or serum to the area beneath your eyes or directly to the massage head of the eye-o-sonic. Then starting at those pesky crows feet or if you prefer, "laugh lines," apply the metal tip gently to the skin. The eye-o-sonic turns on automatically when touched against the skin and begins gently pulsing. Using small circular motions slowly sweep the wand along the line of the eye socket bone until the cream or serum is absorbed. Blot away any excess. It also works really well on fine lines on the upper lip. That's all there is to it. The whole process takes only a minute or two.
Peppermint Wake Up Wash: $14.00
Natural moisturizing body wash infused with essential oil of Tea Tree and Mediterranean Peppermint Herb valued for its cooling, pain relieving and antiseptic effects. Refreshing scent energizes and fights fatigue from head to toe. Sulfate free "no tears" formula does not irritate eyes and rinses thoroughly without residue leaving you invigorated and your skin fresh and hydrated. Makes a great shampoo too! Can be used daily even by persons with sensitive skin.
Directions: Apply onto palms of your hands or a wet washcloth and work into a lather.
Pumpkin Mask Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask: $34.00

Who It’s For: All skin types except sensitive.
Our founder, Lewis Hendler, also co-founded Scunci International, the world's best-known hair accessory brand. Lewis saw an opportunity in a fashion approach to basic hair accessories that was not being met by the established brands. So successful was this idea that Scunci rose to become the number one hair accessory company in the world.
Lewis saw a similar opportunity in skin care when he couldn't find effective organically based solutions to his skin care needs. He began scrutinizing the labels on skin care products and was shocked to learn that many products that represent themselves as “nautral" or "organic" actually contain harmful ingredients including parabens, sulfates and petrochemicals like mineral oil which suffocate the skin.
Without good alternatives, Lewis decided to make his own skin care line. He studied the topical effects of food with a goal of complete nutrition for the skin. He used as much organics as possible without compromising on performance and without added water or unhealthy chemicals. He decided to make the line in the United States where he could maintain better quality and create jobs here at home. More than a year was spent working with formulators, doctors, chemists and certified aromatherapists pulling together science and art to achieve the recipes that would become true organics, effective organically based skin care solutions without the bad stuff.
My Experience: I received samples of Charcoal Detox Cleanser and Pumpkin Mask Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask to review.
I am very impressed with the Charcoal Detox Cleanser. I wash my face with it before I go to bed every night. I ususally use it in the shower and I love how it thoroughly removes all of my makeup. It even removes my eye makeup without burning or irritating my eyes, which is a plus for me because I enjoy products that do both.
I adore the Pumpkin Mask! I am especially loving right now, this time of the year because it is made of REAL PUMPKIN! It is almost as if I am simply opening up a can of pumpkin puree and slathering it on my face. It is bright orange, too. Definitely all natural. I can feel it working right away. It kind of tingles as the natural pumpkin enzymes dissolve impurities like dead skin cells and purifies my pores. My skin feels amazing and more toned afterward. What a treat!
I am loving how fresh and pure my skin is from using Micheal Todd Organics
