exceeded my expectations
I am one that values the opinions of others and like most read reviews on an item prior to buying it. I was planning on buying an item 3 if not 4 times more $ than this item because it had better reviews and is a brand I am familiar with. I have better skin thanks to a recent Zeno purchase however you still have to wash your face several times a day. My old regime was using a puff buff and a cleanser that I felt was best suited for my skin. If it is a facial cleanser chances are it is in my toilette closet. When I bought this I thought this item would be my back up item. However, it has proven to do A LOT more than I thought. I have heard complaints about it not vibrating and that you have to do so. Or that a washcloth is better. After using it for several weeks here is my review. First of all let’s face it, if you are left handed it is easy to clean the left side of your face and vice versa. I don’t know about you but when washing my face and usually taking makeup off I leave the water running to rinse my buff puff. If it is a washcloth you not only get stains on it but it is all over your face and you waste more cleanser with a washcloth. I used the pads that came with the device and wetted them as instructed. It lathered up really well and I did not keep the water running. I felt it cleaned not only my face better but I was able to get my neck and side of my neck which breakout frequently as well. The best thing about this device is it is NOT just capable of using the pads intended for it. I am not a huge Dove fan and although it cleans well sometimes I need something stronger. I have stuck a buff puff on the device and then put on a heavier cleanser and it works great! I also have stuck face pads for a well know company that is more abrasive and also the Ponds facial clothes. They ALL stick to this device and I find myself cleaning my face a lot longer and cleaning it better. What I love the most is during the winter my hands get really chapped and blistered. Or even in the summer if you have a cut on your hand this device is a dream. No more running your hands under the water and applying it directly to the harsh chemicals and rinsing. The device is my fingers and it has truly helped my hands and skin since it touch my face, not my bare hands. I love this product and am glad I gave it a try and knowing it is so diverse I could not be happier. I think for the price you get what you paid for and a whole lot more! It is definitely worth it!
The cotton pad gets caught on the face. I am a man, and I cannot use this on the area of my face where whiskers grow…no matter how clean-shaven. It is impossible to exfoliate with cotton pillows. Besides, all the device did was vibrate, which does nothing for exfoliation. It should spin.
Not worth buying
I got this free in a promotion and that’s about what it is worth. It is much more convenient to use the cleansing pads by hand rather than with the skinvitalizer. I am really not sure what they purpose they think they are serving with this product. The pads are also more soapy than I would like but that is minor enough since I can just squeeze out the excess.
BEST FACIAL EXFOLIATOR!!!
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT, IT IS GREAT FOR ANY SKIN TYPE. I HAVE VERY OILY SKIN WHICH BASICALLY SHINE ALL THE TIME. AND I HATE IT,SO I BOUGHT THIS ITEM LIKE A YEAR AGO AND IM STILL USING IT. IT’S GREAT FOR MY OILY SKIN,PLUS AFTER I USE IT MY FACE DOES NOT SHINE ALL THROUGH THE DAY OR NIGHT. IT FEELS LIFTED UP FROM DIRT,OIL, AND OTHER IMPURITIES IN MY SKIN. BEST THING IT HAS TO SIDES THE EXFOILIATE SIDE AND THE CLEANSING SIDE. THAT’S HOW I KNOW IT WORKING BECAUSE OF THE TWO SIDES THAT CARE FOR YOUR FACE(AND OF COURSE WHEN I SEE THE NASTY DIRT AND OIL ON THE PAD). BUT I WILL CONTINUE TO USE IT AND THEY ONLY COST ALL LITTLE BIT FOR THE PADS SO IT’S WAY WORTH IT. I ALSO BOUGHT THE NEUTROGENA WAVE BUT THAT DIDN’T WORK OUT WELL FOR ME. SO I WILL BUY THIS ALL THE TIME FOR NOW ON!!! THANK’S DOVE KEEP IT COMING!!!
not very exfoliating
its kinda slimy feeling i think you could do more with a scrub than this. i dont use it anymore instead i use the indian clay mask and a deep conditioning cleanser and my face has been amazing!!
I love the way my face feels after I use this. The only drawback is having to purchase the exfoliating pillows instead of just using your favorite cleansing soap. And for being battery operated, it isn’t loud at all & is light weight & fits easily in your hand. It does clean your face as you would expect & as it proclaims to.
For The Price? Great
Great for the price but I did have some problems. The pads provided, if they got too wet, would move around as I used them on my face. It is very easy to wet them too much and you end up with a lathery extravaganza. I can’t say if it’s better than just using a towel but it does make washing my face more ‘fun’.But those are small problems. It works as advertised. No one can buy this and feel ripped off. There is something very pleasant about that!
I had one of the first SkinVitalizers that got recalled. I bought the second version too. Fell in love with it AND the various types of cleansing pillows available for different skincare needs. The massaging vibrations and cleansing treatments were relaxing and made my skin feel and look better. THEN the refill pillows started disappearing and now the entire line is discontinued 🙁 When the cleansing pillows are available they’re comparatively expensive, honestly NOT WORTH THE ADDED EXPENSE.I like the device for helping me to focus on problem areas, making it easier to have better skincare and even some pampering. I’ve taken to using cotton rounds, cosmetic pads with my own cleansers and lotions as the different pillows for exfoliating, brightening, and mature skin vanished. When fibers clog the velcro, let it get totally dry then use tape to capture the fibers like old-school lint trapping :)The one for my son’s back-ne is used with acne cleansing pads likeOxy Maximum Daily Cleansing Pads, 90 pads (Pack of 3)I’m sure the extra attention and the vibrations get the medicine deeper to the source of the problem which has cleared existing acne AND prevented more.
I love this messager, it gives you a really deep clean and I really like the foaming action. And it gets down into your pores for an awesome clean and makes my face feel fantastic.
does what it says.
It vibrates when you turn it on as you cleanse your face. I didn’t really like it, but if you like massaging face while you cleanse it, then it’s for you.
