BAAAHHH!!! I wish I could type a big long fart noise but I wouldn't know where to start. I really really liked the wave at first! I found that you can get it to foam up really well if you start at your chin, work it around for a minute, and let it get sudsy. The first few weeks I used this, my skin felt really clean and smooth. Then, shortly after, I started noticing blackheads where I don't ever get them. New ones on my chin, forehead, and a couple big ones on my nose. What the poop? I thought this was to remove dirt and all that nastiness, but instead it gave me a bunch of new blackheads! Laaaaame.
When I first bought this product, I was really excited to use it since the tv ads looked so convincing! But when I first used it, I noticed that the foams didn't even show up, as it did on the tv. But that part's still okay. I didn't want to give up on this product, and I really tried to like this product, so I continued using it for like 4 or 5 months (had to get new pads every month). But the condition of my face didn't really change and breakouts still happened (as often as before). There were times when I ran out of pads and didn't have time to buy new ones, so I just used my regular cleansers....and my skin was STILL the same. Didn't worsen out or anything. So, I don't get the point of spending your money on this product. Def won't buy it again.
This product was nice. It didn't lather unless I wet the pad and then scratched it so bubbles showed. Sometimes it made my face feel super clean, sometimes like normal cleansers. I heard this could tear up my face, which is why it says on the back use once a day only, but I don't believe it.
This was non-irritating for my sensitive/oily/acne-prone skin. Did probably stop a few pimples from forming, but when I had a real breakout coming it still came. This made me feel clean, look clean, and I had the option of pairing it with another cleanser for the time I don't use this, which is nice.
Kinda expensive, and I hate running out of pads constantly, so I took 1 lippie off.
I have some pads stocked away for use under my sink though! ;-)
When I first bought the Wave, it worked WONDERFULLY on my skin; my face always felt really fresh and deeply clean after using it. However, after a few weeks the power-cleanser just... stopped working. I tried replacing the batteries several times, and even wrote to Neutrogena. They informed me that they would be sending me a new Wave in the mail, but it's been several months now and no compensation in my mailbox. Unfortunately, as well as it worked for me when I first bought it, I'm not all that willing to go out and pay for an entirely new package again.
You don't get much vibration from the device; the pads that come with the Wave aren't very saturated, don't foam well and my skin did not feel clean after using it.
This made my skin even more oily (if that's possible), and barely foamed up. Very disgusted with this product.
I bought this and Clean and Clear blackhead eraser (the vibrating one)
this one, I do not lik at all. It's good for travel to throw in your bag with a new cleansing pad. That's about it. I like my Clean and Clear a lot better.
I bought this product while traveling, and let me just say that it is the BEST travel buddy EVER!
First off--it works great! Just remember to put the pad on the WAVE with the crystals facing upward! After using it, my face always feels soft and smooth. It really gets deep down in my pores without tearing my skin. It does leave my face slightly dry, which is nothing a good moisturizer can't cure.
Second--there is NO liquid involved! If you've been through TSA recently, you'll know that you can't bring more than 3 oz. of any liquid product through security check points. Most of the facial cleansers I use that work wonders come in bottles that are more than 3 oz. Also, any liquid in my bags really irk me because I constantly think they might open and go all over everything else in my bag. This? It's the best travel companion ever! You can bring it through TSA without fearing that it will be confiscated. Even if you don't travel, it's something that you can easily thrown in your purse for future use. I don't know about you, but I can NEVER stay overnight anywhere without having face wash. I always feel dirty at the end of the night if my face never gets cleaned. I'll pop this out if I unexpectedly stay at a friend's or I'll use it after leaving a bar filled with smoke. It's GREAT!
I was actually pleasantly suprised with this drugstore item! It cleaned well *even though i still use my original face cleanser before this* and it made my face feel very soft. I usually have small bumps on my skin, and this cleared them away after one wash! I will continue to use it, and will update if anything wrong happens, but I anticipate a positive outcome with this product!!
I personally like this product. it leaves my face VERY soft and keeps oil away for a little while(not as long as i would like it to though). Some people say that it doesn't foam for them but what i do is wet it with warm water, turn it on, and then push my finger down on it about 10 times until i see a little soap coming up. Then i use it for about 5 minutes and it foams pretty well for me when i do that. they also say that it makes them break out but that's just how it works...it takes all the gunk and dirt that's deep into your face and brings it to the surface which causes a temporary break out but still gets all the gunk out of your face. i do like this product.
