As-salaam O Alaikum all you lovely girls out there,
How was your day? Busy doing last minute chand raat shopping or already celebrated Eid in your country?
I was planning on doing this post last night but for some reason my internet went nuts and stopped working so I gave up. And today I was so busy with house-work and needing to get the groceries in for Eid that I did not get time. In fact I wanted to put on mehndi right now but feel too tired to do it. :(
Anyway today's post is on Neutrogena Wave. It is an original vibrating power cleanser. I got it last year when there was a Neutrogena deal going on. They were giving Neutrogena Wave with a new launch at that time, Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer with helioplex.
I will be reviewing Neutrogena Healthy Defense in a separate post. Now about the wave. They say, "Wave hello to softer skin!". According to the cover, this cleanser is clinically proven to be superior to regular cleansing in 2 ways:
- Gentle vibrations clean your skin about 10 times deeper to remove oil, dirt and make-up.
- It also smoothes away dead skin cells, leaving your skin softer and smoother.
Further more they also claim this cleanser to be so gentle, you can use it daily. Does it do all that? Well first check the pictures and all that the box has to say before I move on to my opinion.
The first time I used it, my skin felt smoother but very tight and stretchy. I have combination skin which get very dry in winters and those same areas are greasy and oily in summers. Since I was trying this in winters, I thought it might be because of my skin. I did not use it daily but occasionally. Then came the humid weather and I tried it again. Pretty much same effect but slightly less stretchy feeling. Did it help with dead skin, black & white heads? Not exactly. May be if I used daily for a month but I doubt it. I did use daily for several days then I switched to alternate days. Another reason might be that in the stores here, I could only find Deep Cleansing Foaming Pads and not the other two specified in the brochure: Gentle Exfoliating Pads and Shine-free Blemish-free Pads, which I feel would have been more suitable for the problem I was facing at that time. I did find them on Just4Girls.pk but the price was a tab bit more then I wanted to spend on them.
Now I have the machine, I sometimes deep cleanse and keep an eye out for the other types of pads being available here in Pakistan. Till then I make do with this. It does help clean up a bit when the skin feels too dirty and greasy. It also does make the skin feel smoother and a tad bit softer. Do try it out. It might be more effective on your skin then mine but I would not recommend this to girls with too dry skin. I got it for around 1300 PKR last year. It might be a bit cheaper now.. or may be not. This is available in Hyperstar in Dolmen City Mall. I got it from Forum. Not sure about other places but am pretty sure it will be available. It is a long term investment. *winks*
If you already have used it, let me know what you think of this product.
Till next time.. Have a very nice meaty Eid..
