While I like Neutrogena products, I've never been fully satisfied with them. Seeing it as my last attempt to decide whether or not to dump my shelf of once-used cleansers and toners, I decided to try The Wave. I'm not acne-prone: I get the occasional zit and that's that. When I ordered The Wave, I had a pretty nasty breakout, which happens rarely. It came, and I used it but found no difference whatsoever other than the fact that it removed my makeup, which is nice, but I already have a valued makeup remover that I use daily. I tried to use it again, but I found that it caused irritation to my breakout including redness and a series of smaller bumps around my chin. I would most definitely not buy this again, especially for the price requested.

I was so excited to buy the Neutrogena Wave, after loving previous Neutrogena products(Deep Clean Washes, Skin Glow etccc!). I bought the wave and went straight home to try it out, as I was so excited about it. I like this product alot, it cleans my pores out and gets rid of my make up, and there is no trace of make up left and leaves my skin lovely and smooth. I get occasional break-outs, and I have some blackheads, but I find this cleans my skin well but is harsh enough to leave it raw, so make sure you have enough moisturizer, so its not saw throughout the day. The only major disappointement with this product is that I thought it would foam up some more, because it didn't foam up. All in all this is a good product, but it would be better if the pads had a moisturizing ingriedient, and if it would foam up some more.

We all have different skin, so not all products will work the same for everyone. All I can say is that this product worked well for me. I have combination skin (normal/oily). When i'm using this product, I use it on my face for 5-10minutes, before finally rinsing my face with water. I find that it works better than most normal cleaners (from supermarkets/chemists). It cleans my T-zone fairly well and leaves my skin feeling soft after I've used it.

I don't understand all of the negative reviews on this product. I found it to be highly effective at cleaning and providing a very light exfoliation. It's fun to use, and not too expensive (I went to Neutrogena's website for a coupon, and purchased at Harmon). I foams up nicely and smells great, without being too perfumey. I use this in the mornings, followed by Eucerine's Everyday Protection SPF 30 lotion, and my skin has never looked better! (note: This product can be a little drying,so I limit use to once per day during the harsh winter months.)
Highly recommend! :)

This was completely useless to me. To me, all it did was vibrate a cleanser pad on my face.
It was relative inexpensive, therefore I didnt do any research prior to buying.
I've used up all my cleansing pads that came with the Wave, instead of buying more pads, what I do now, it just stick plain pad and with some of my my favourite cleanser.

I love all neutrogena facial products and when this one came out I bought it immediately. I used it for a few weeks and honestly, it did absolutely nothing for my face. I think that it is a little to over-rated for what it actually does. I'm not sure if I'm wrong but the foaming pads made my face red and itchy:( Yes, they do smell good but seriously? I think that you could purchase better facial cleansers for less money. Sorry Neutrogena.

I purchased the Wave Sonic and I love it. I found that using it every day was unnecessary, so I started using it every other night in the shower. It takes care of my blackheads and exfoliates, leaving my skin feeling clean and soft. I have found that it is important to use a rich cream lotion after on tight or dry patches to moisturize, but overall, I like this product and am disappointed that it is being discontinued.

I've always loved Neutrogena products, but this was terrible. I used it for a few days, and my skin was so red and raw it felt like I rubbed it with sandpaper. My eyeshadow brush felt like it was made of needles. I had to give it to my roommate, and she said she had no problem with it, but for me, it made my skin raw, flaky, and sore.

I have struggled with bad skin (inflamed cystic and hormonal acne, blackheads) for all of my teenage and adult years, and have tried what feels like a million different cleansers scrubs masks and treatments, so I was pretty sceptical about this product being any different. I actually wanted to try the Clarisonic but was not willing to spend so much money right away so thought I would give this a go instead before I make the leap.
I got the Wave at a local supermarket for $15, compared to the tens of thousands of dollars I have spent over the last 14 years I thought what the hell. I tend to give every product I try about 3-4 months to see if they really are effective of not, I by no means expect a miracle over night.
After my first use I really didn’t have an opinion. I wasn’t fussed on the vibration, but to be fair I was most likely pushing too hard. My skin did feel very clean though and I was surprised at the amount of make up on the pad, considering I pre-cleansed. After a few days use (morning and night) my skin started coming up in tiny little pimples under my skin, and for the next 4 days I had a further break out.
Abound the week and a half mark I started to notice that my skin was calming down, felt smoother, make up was going on better and redness reducing. I have also cut little circles out of a washcloth and have started using my own cleanser on it, so I can personalise it depending on how my skin is feeling for the day (oily, dry etc).
I’m now about 2 months into using the wave and although I would not go as far as to call it a HG item, it has so far been well worth the $15. I have only purchased one refill of the pads because I am still using my own version. My skin is cleaner and clearer - I still have pimples but I have significantly less, and they are small, not red and usual clear in a day or two making them easy to manage and conceal. My moisturiser is absorbing better and in turn I need less of it and I’ve noticed that my skin is starting to feel tighter and the small frown lines on my forehead are fading away – defiantly a bonus.
For 15 dollars I’m super pleased at the results. I know everyone’s skin is different so I think by getting some washcloth and putting your own cleanser on it would be helpful for others. Also, seriously, you can NOT expect overnight success. If you break out to begin with, it is to be expected!! It’s just bringing the build-up under your skin to the surface, and although it might look horrible its what you need!
I am still interested to try the Clarisonic, but I’m in no hurry at the moment because with a little luck and a few more months use the wave might help totally clear my skin up – fingers crossed
