Beauty on a Budget: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejuvenator Review

Remember a few weeks ago when I was testing out the Neutrogena Wave? Sheesh forgot already? Click for a refresher!

I've also been testing out the Skin Rejuvenator as well. I actually couldn't use this for a while as I was broken out for a bit and anything aside from simple oil cleanser was all I could use without further making my skin cry NO!



But I'm back!

And testing resumed recently!

I have to say that I felt like the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejuvenator did a far better job cleaning my skin than the Wave. I really liked the Wave alot prior to testing the Rejuvenator but I now find myself reaching for the Rejuvenator more often!

Why?

I feel like the Rejuvenator cleans deeper as it sends off more powerful vibrations then the Wave and the pads that are included foam up better. I'm not only feeling like I get a deeper clean but I also feel like it's exfloliating my skin as well!



The Rejuvenator is actually meant to improve fine lines and wrinkles and promote firmer skin. I have neither problem but it worked perfectly great in to give my skin a softer, cleaner appearance! My moisturizer seemed to really like it too as after using this it sunk in much better than it normally does!

I guess I'm somewhat on the hunt to find a cheap alternative to shelling out $199 for the Clarisonic Cleaning Brush and the Wave and the Healthy Skin Rejuvenator does a pretty good job of that!

This particular kit comes with the cleaner, batteries, and 12 cleaning puffs. It works just the same way as the Wave does in that you simply attach a pad to the cleaner, switch on, and begin circling it across your face.





After you're finished you ditch the pad, rinse, and you're good to go!

The kit is a bit more expensive then the wave at about $33 USD but I also felt like it did a better job than the Wave which had cost $12 USD.

You can certainly feel the difference when you switch it on as the pulse and vibration are much stronger!

The pads are pre-soaked with a cleaning solution and you get a bit of a tingle as you use them which is very cooling and refreshing! They foam up much better than the Wave however I don't feel I can use this to take off major makeup but I do enjoy using the entire unit in the shower, as it's waterproof, for a nice deep clean in the morning!



The unit also left my face with a beautiful glow and softness that it normally doesn't always have!

Overall I'd say it's definately an improvement over purchasing a unit that could cost $199 or more!

Definitely worth trying out for yourself, young or old!

Tried this?

Love it?

me wants to clairsonic and I'm trying hard to just say no lol! So I keep trying cheaper versions and hoping I'll find one that fits just right into my skincare regime.

This is better then the wave. Stronger pulse and vibration :)


My skin isn't so much bumpy but I get flakes around my eyebrows and forehead which drives me bonkers!!!!!!!!!
