WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
Let me see where I should start with this product. I had actually been putting off this review for more than half a year now because I really don’t want to write about it. Mainly because this vibrating cleanser had been such a disappointment. (Actually, it’s more like the cleansing pads that I find really disappointing more than anything else).

First of all, it cleanses like a regular facial cleanser. I had used this alone and I didn’t see it completely remove all my face makeup. My face still kinda felt “dirty” afterwards. Thus, I had to do another cleanse anyways. Then I tried it after washing my face with a cleansing oil and then using this product as the double cleanse. But then I thought to myself, isn’t this just like using a regular facial cleanser with a cleansing sponge?



Second, the different pads that the company offers are all the same. Whether the blemish free pads or the gentle exfoliating one; they’re all the same. They don’t do what they claim too do and it doesn’t really help with acne. The pads also have a scented smell that I really, really dislike. Plus, it’s not as foaming as what I had expected. (The above photos are what the pads look like after it’s been under water and foamed).

Another annoying thing about the product is when you try to remove the pads. The pads attach to the gadget similar to how a Velcro would attach to each other. Then when you try to remove the used pad and to dispose of it, some small pieces of the pad will be left over on the gadget and it’s close to impossible to get rid of them completely. I would have liked the product a lot more if I didn’t have to use their cleansing pads.

Lastly, this product had calmed to be waterproof. But trust me, you do not want to use this in the shower. I used it once the night that I had purchased the item and then the gadget didn’t work the next day. I had to rinse it off and replace the batteries before it started to work again. It’s a really turn-off. I guess the only positive side about this product is it’s price (Somewhere around $10 CAD and comes with 14 facial pads). However, you’ll have to keep restocking on the facial pads once you are all done. So it can still add up to a decent sum of money. A facial cleansing sponge will give you the same results for a lot less! I will definitely not be re-purchasing this item anytime soon.

RATING
Product (0/5)
Cost (4/5)
Ease of Use (4/5)
Packaging (5/5) – I must admit though that I do like the overall design of the Wave.
