This is worth CAD$15.00
According to Neutrogena.."The first of its kind, the Neutrogena Wave original vibrating power-cleanser is still shaking up the cleansing world with its gentle vibrations. It's guaranteed to leave skin feeling softer and smoother after just 1 use, and cleans 10x deeper to remove more oil, dirt, and makeup than traditional cleansing. It's so gentle you can use it daily. Plus, it's water-resistant, so you can use it at the sink or in the shower."
I got sucked in with the commercial because Hayden Panettiere and Vanessa Hudgens are the ones endorsing it.
According to Hayden and Vanessa, the new Neutrogena Wave vibrates on your face which will allow the soap to clean deeper, and remove surface residue, and makeup better then other facial cleansing soaps.
The Waves vibrating action supposedly will stimulate the skins surface, and open up pores, to allow this deeper cleansing action.
Neutrogena Wave Power Cleanser comes with the Wave hand held power cleanser, 14 cleansing pads, and an AA battery. Everything you need to get it started.
The 14 pads came in 2 separate white plastic bags. I noticed that each pad was wet, and stacked one on top of the other. Once the package was open, I could not re-seal it.
Well It did open up my pores and it did vibrate , but lets see..
I heard lots of rants about this products and I'm joining in.
I hate this face product because...
a). The pads- only one use then done! you need to throw the pads away after one use because it is disgusting. You do not want to see black heads sitting on the pad. Yuck!
b). The pad packaging- you can see why I hate the packaging. Ripped, cheap plastic! Come on Neutrogena, I know you can do better than this. I wish they put the pads on a plastic container or something uhmm maybe..... re-sealable!
e). ....and most of all, it doesn't remove make-up!
so enough with the rant, now I will explain how to use this "Wave"
- I wet my face first,
- put the cleanser(with the pad of course!) under some water,
- I clicked the button on the Power Cleanser, and rubbed the pad around my face. The vibration from the device was okay, and it took quite awhile for any foam to develop on my skin. The scent has a Neutrogena smell(you will know what I'm talking about if you are a neutrogena user). I actually like the smell.
- I wait for about 3 minutes then I rinse it with water.
This is how it looks before I wash my face
Clean and fresh pad...
look how little foam was released...
This is after I wash my face- as you can see on the photo below, the pad moves and doesn't stay in place.
