Cost: $169.00 USD
Okay, now I know everyone loves this product. I just want to be completely honest with my experience with it so hopefully what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else. I was skeptical about purchasing this cause of the price. After thinking it over for about half a year I finally caved in and purchased one in the really cute Hot Pink color.
I have sensitive skin, always have. I have a fair/medium complexion, hardly get pimples (except for the one that might pop up at that time of the month...), no visible enlarged pores or anything. The reason I decided to get the tool was because my brother and I started getting skin problems (pimples, skin started getting oily) once we moved here to the US, and I have never had a facial in my life. So a friend of ours suggested this tool saying it would save us time and money and that it would be basically be the best investment we ever made, I even went to a professional and asked if it was worth it, which they said if used properly it would be great for my skin since I probably haven't had a really deep cleaning done to my face.
Okay so, I buy it. First time I use it, wow! My skin looks like its glowing, I can see when I use my toner there isn't even any dirt after. So I am thinking great right? Wrong. After using it for only three days, my skin started to feel wrong. And it started to look bad. But I figured since I was told my skin would go through a 'purging' I figured it was only normal since my skin was getting rid of all this gunk underneath. I stuck with it for a month, my face looked so horrible. Just break out after break out. Then it started to subside somewhat, so I was thinking that my skin would start to look awesome. Wrong again. So yes, no more breakouts, but then my nose started getting blackheads which I have never gotten before. The person I spoke to regarding it told me to stick with it for another month. I did. Nothing helped. I stopped using it completely and my skin healed up. But from using this tool (which I did not use everyday twice a day, that's too much even if they tell you its safe...), my pores are now HUGE, I got broken capillaries, the pores on my nose were now huge and I get blackheads. Basically it was the worst thing I ever did to my skin.
Now that I got my face to heal and got things back to normal. I am not saying do not purchase this, by no means. My brother and I both got one and it works well for him. It all depends on your skin, if you have good skin, YOU DON'T NEED THIS TOOL. Exfoliate another way that is less traumatizing to your skin. Its true most of those who try it experience break outs cause it brings all the dirt and things underneath your skin to the surface, but if you have given it a good two months or so and your skin doesn't improve, time to get the receipt and return it.
And also if it works great for you then awesome but limit how many times you use it within a week. Exfoliating your skin is something that is good, in limitation. Also if you experienced the same thing as me and want ways to undo it let me know. Perhaps I can help. I really wanted this to work for me but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Will never purchase again.
