While contemplating whether to buy a Clarisonic or not, I strolled across this.
Now this is not the first time iv come across this. I have seen it advertised on TV, Magazines and when Im occasionally walking past the drug store skincare aisle. I always stop to pick it up, read it, then put it back down. Up until the other day where I spotted it in TKMAXX, I was apprehensive about buying it. why? I just thought it was another gimmick product.
But my will power didn't hold me back strong enough. I looked at the price (£6) then moved swiftly to the checkout.
It comes with the batterie and two packs of cleansing pads (7 in each pack). The pad automatically sticks to the wave when attached, abit like velcro! Cleansing foam can be seen in the centre of the pad.
Now comes the test, as I wet the pad and start massaging it onto my face, I expected foam, Lots of foam infact due to the massage PLUS vibrations. The result is below....
It produced the tiniest amounts of foam, far from my liking! and for this reason my face didn't feel clean. I felt like I was pushing a wet cotton pad around my face which was doing nothing. I tried adding some of my facial soap which normally foams up a lot, but Nada. Still no foams. disappointed.
One of the most annoying things is that when the head is wet and you hold it up against your face vertically, the angle made the water drip all over my clothing.
After I pat my face dry, my skin feels no different to when I use my hands. In fact my Body Shop Facial Brush does a better job as it gives me smooth skin.
The reviews for this product is very mixed, some love it, some hate but my personal opinion would be that, its a waste of money.
Its now sitting in my 'unwanted' draw. To add to the joy, I started to break out.
A big fat thumbs down.
Have you tired this and what do you think about it?
