I've been meaning to do a review on this for months, especially after seeing a youtuber rant about it. And now, e.motion in: motion has done a review (click here) and although, I don't wanna seem like a copycat I have a totally different review than her. I know, right - chaotic mess of disagreeing reviews, how does one decide ;)
So I bought mine after watching commercial after commercial of this face cleanser vibrator & on a trip to Target I discovered that not only was the Wave Duo on sale but so were the replacement pads! So I purchased it and have been using it about 3x a week ever since :)
I have to say that I like it. I knew it was not going to do wonders for my skin (come on, it's from a drugstore and it's no Clarisonic for heaven's sake) but I use to use just a makeup removing towelette and then move onto my Proactiv set & when using a toner I would notice makeup residue on the pad. Leading me to believe that maybe using a makeup removing towelette was not getting off all my makeup and therefore, Proactiv was not able to do it's job.
Now, I notice far less (if ANY) makeup residue after using my the Wave after the makeup removing towelette and before applying Proactiv. I don't use it everyday because I find that it could be a little too harsh on skin (rub it in circular motions on face for 60 seconds).
To use I simply wet my face, apply the pad to the Wave and wet the Wave. Then I start rubbing on my face and splash some water on my face to get the foam going. I get LOTS OF FOAM from doing this. It even gets in my hair, lol.
It leaves my face SOOO SOFT & not a bit dried out. I tend to use it at night but I've used it in the shower too.
There are several different kinds of pads that you can get. I have tried the original (my favorite) and the shine free ones that are suppose to reduce oil - the only reason why these aren't my favorite is because the texture is a bit rough and definitely wouldn't recommend for everyday use.
Overall, it's much cheaper option than the Clarisonic and I'm satisfied at around $15 full price (you can find them on sale often).
