I was given this item as a Christmas present last year. It's an ultrasonic skin cleansing device which can be used on the face and the body. It comes supplied with four interchangeable heads, three smaller ones intended for use on the face, which I think are supposed to be of different degrees of stiffness in the brushes (though I don't really notice much) and one slightly larger for use on the body. There were also some bottles of cleansing lotions - I think it's supplied with sample-sized ones and my family added some of the full-sized bottles as well.
I'll say first up I'm quite cynical about a lot of beauty products and their claims. I've tried a lot of things over the years and as far as I'm concerned they generally are a waste of money. And I'm also going to say that I think this is no different. I was actually quite shocked to see what the price of it was. Because I can't say it honestly does very much!
Using it on the face, it works in two 20-second bursts then two 10-second bursts, the first two you use it on the forehead, then the nose and chin area, the two 10-second bursts you use it on either cheek. I find it hard to see what it's actually going to do for you in such a short period, and I didn't feel that it was especially cleansing. I've got very greasy skin, and really I feel I can clean my skin just as thoroughly with a cheap friction mitt as something costing £155. There is no obviously noticeable effect from using it. The skin is no cleaner or different in quality, than by the traditional method. It doesn't feel like it's actually on for long enough to do anything meaningful. The cleansers supplied are ok, they seemed fairly gentle, but I can't say they did anything special either.
I haven't tried it for body massage, as quite honestly, the head is small and would take forever to do a larger area (and I'm not that large!)
To conclude I'd say, don't waste the money on this, it doesn't really do anything you can't do better with a cloth or a wash mitt costing £1.
