It Doesnt foam right away like I thought.
You really have to work it into your face for it to start bubbling up. I will say however that it does seem to get what my regular face wash misses. I use the Loreal 360 and it has the little brush to scrub. When the soap turns white I figure all my make up is gone and Im done. well I used the wave and it picked up all the dirt and make up I still had on my face. Def. worth the buy.
I didn't expect too much from this product at first. I was really just trying to find SOMETHING that wasn't a ten step process, but that really made a difference for my skin. I have had a lot of problems with acne so I just wanted something simple to use that would do the job, and I was blown away by this product. It doesn't take a lot of effort to use, it's easy, and it's fun! Even better, it works! My skin has cleared up, A LOT, and it has really helped to make my skin look great! I am in love with my wave, and I would suggest it to anyone & everyone!
I've loved the Wave Sonic from my first use. It does a really nice job for the price considering it's on the lower end of the price scale for an exfoliating handheld device. After cleansing my face feels instantly soft and I can notice a significant difference in my face after not using for at least a week. Definitely a must-have!
I only use it at night...My skin tends to be on the drier side and with the salicylic acid I tend to get a little dry (and if I use it too often my face swells up a bit, but I love it so much and it works so well that I just use it a bit less often) if I use it too often. I love how clean and fresh my face feels after I use it. I cleanse and exfoliates so well that my treatments and moisturizer just sink right into my skin. I love the scent, too. The pads are a little expensive if you use them twice a day, I would think. I had a couple of the pads not foam for some reason. The company was excellent when I called to tell them about it. I only called when it happened the third time. They have never had anyone call about that before, so maybe it's because I don't use them all the time and sometimes I take a couple of days off. I store them in a ziploc baggy now so I can be sure they are not getting dried out. They were excellent with their customer service! Sometimes, if I have heavy makeup on, I will gently pre-cleanse with a soft cleanser so the foaming pad doesn't get all "mucky" with makeup, as I don't want that to be buffed into my pores.
For those of us who cannot afford the Clarsonic just yet, this is not a terrible alternative. Of course, the Clarsonic is hands down better. However, for budget beauty buyers this is pretty good. The refills are kind of a pain to buy because they are not always in stock. I like to use the exfoliating pads best. My skin feels very clean and smooth afterward.
