For years and years, I've had horribly sensitive skin and I've always been prone to get these little blackheads all over my chin and by the corner of my mouth. They are hardly noticable, but I know they're there, so it bothers the crap out of me. I've tried creams, makeups, washes, and pretty much everything else I could think of-nothing worked. And the WORST part is that most of those creams, washes, and especially makeups would make me breakout WORSE!! I would even have facials-I'd tell them to use the most sensitive skin products on me and no matter what they did, the FACIAL would make me break out!!
Of the few brands and products I can use on my face, I think this is my new favorite. I bought this little contraption just last week and I've used it twice. The first time I used it, I thought, "OK-this is a gimick". It didn't seem to help much. After an hour or so, though, I DID notice a change in the amount of the little blackheads. I waited a day, then used it again today and they're almost ALL GONE!! I can't believe it!
This product is a small vibrating cleaner (about 2 inches tall and an inch to an inch and a half round)that you place a pad on for each use. I haven't had to buy the pads yet, so I don't know how much they will cost, but I can't imagine they'd be more than a few dollars. The machine comes with about a dozen of them to start you off and you use it every other day, so that's about a month's worth there. The machine takes one AA battery-again, I've only used it twice, so I don't know how long the battery will last. It's going to depend on how long you use the machine, too, though. The battery comes with the machine to start you off-how strange is that??? LOL!! You place a pad on the end of the machine, dampen your face with warm water, then dampen the pad with warm water. Turn on the machine and rub it on your face-I use it about 2 minutes each time. You want to focus on the areas that are prone to breakouts. Rinse your face afterwards, then take your shower and wash the areas you can't get to with the machine (like your eyes)-I wash my whole face again since my skin is so sensitive, just in case there is any residue from the pad on my skin-I don't think there is, though. Pretty much, this machine works in the medication with the vibrating motion.
I'm SURE you can get a better deal on this than I did if you go to WalMart or something like that-this little gadget is worth it! In the right situation, this may even make a great little stocking stuffer!! Give it a try-after the first couple uses, I'm sure you'll see a difference too :)
