Review: Neutrogena Wave Power Cleanser

I've used the Neautrogena wave (after hearing some really good reviews on it) a few times now but I'm unsure whether I love it or not. I thought the easiest way to review this product would be to give you my own advantages and disadvantages so here goes:

+ The size: it's small and easy to hold
+ It comes with a battery which is a nice little added extra and means you can start using straight away
- The pads you use on it already have a cleanser in them and I wish they didn't. There's not enough in them so I add my own anyway but I'd like to just use my own. I also don't like not knowing what is in the cleanser that is already added
- It doesn't lather enough for me, even when I add my own cleanser. I always want to stop and just use my hands
- Refills are around £5.50 for 30 which for me, since I'm not completely in love with this product seems like a lot
+ I do feel like it cleans my face really well but not much different to when I use my hands and it also takes longer
+ It's completely water proof which makes it very easy to clean
+ It comes with 14 pads which is a nice amount to get with it
- The shape and size makes it hard to clean around your nose

I do like this product but I feel like there are also lots of things I don't like about it too.
If you would like to test it our for yourself it's available at both Superdrug and Boots for around ten pounds.

Have you tried the Wave?

Review: T-Zone Nose pore strips

I remember using these many years ago and even though I decided back then that they don't work I've been wanting to try them again. So, when I saw them on sale in Tesco for £1.95 I decided to give them another chance (although, later when checking my receipt it turns out they didn't come up as being on sale and I was charged the full price for them which is £3.00 for six strips).

To use them, you just fully wet the are area around your nose with water, press the strip on to your skin, leave for 10 minutes and then peel off.

My skin looked no different after using them, they left a sticky, hard residue on your skin, it kind of hurts to peel them off and they just do not work. I'm so disappointed with this product. Of course I didn't expect these strips to work miracles on my skin but I expected them to at least do something! Instead I was just left feeling like I had just wasted 10 minutes of my time.

Have you tried this product? Do you like them more than I do?
