The Secret Behind Rita Ora and Priyanka Chopra’s Red Carpet Glow
We’ve been fans of Solawave’s powerful skincare technology for over a year now, and in that time, we’ve seen the brand’s 4-in-1 skincare wands go from best-kept celebrity skincare secret to an essential in every makeup artist’s red carpet toolkit.
Solawave has contributed to the glow of the biggest names in Hollywood—from Jennifer Coolidge and Sydney Sweeney to Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman—and after every red carpet event, that list gets even bigger. So, we weren’t surprised to learn that Solawave’s new Radiant Renewal Skincare Wand played a part in Rita Ora and Priyanka Chopra’s radiant skin at this year’s Met Gala.
And the best part? It’s less than the price of a single facial.
Solawave Does It All
What sets the Radiant Renewal Skincare Wand apart is that it combines the strength of LED therapy and galvanic current in a powerful tool with gentle facial massage and therapeutic warmth. These four features work in tandem to give your skin that ‘from the inside out’ glow with minimal effort.
Solawave’s innovative tech works for every skin type and age group, and benefits are almost too numerous to count. With consistent use, the wand simultaneously helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps to combat dark circles and redness, and helps to depuff the skin—to name just a few.
The wand is up to 3x more effective when used with Solawave’s all-natural, gluten-free and vegan Renew Complex Activating Serum, which combines Hyaluronic Acid, Blue Tansy, and Aloe Vera to help conduct the wand’s galvanic current while combating blemishes and inflammation.
After giving the Radiant Renewal Wand a whirl, we’re calling it our skincare Swiss Army Knife because this little tool does it all. Here are five reasons why we, celebrity makeup artists, (and thousands of clear-skinned customers) are singing Solawave’s praises:
1. Instant Results
Skeptical after being duped one too many times by skincare products that promise results overnight, we were floored by how quickly we could see the effects of Solawave. The Radiant Renewal Skincare Wand delivers spa treatment-level results in minutes, so it makes sense that celeb makeup artists use it to prep the stars for the biggest nights of the year.
The gentle vibrating massage promotes blood circulation—reducing the appearance of under-eye bags, puffiness, and dark spots—while the galvanic current helps the skin absorb topical skincare products better (like their Renew Complex Serum and all of your favorite non-oil based serums and creams). Continued use also helps to brighten your complexion.
2. Solawave Stops Time
While Solawave’s almost-magic wand delivers some results you can see instantly, the real beauty of this tool is its long-term benefits. It’s supercharged with low-wavelength visible red light, which has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and combat inflammation caused by acne.
The wand works over time to rejuvenate the skin, turning back the clock on signs of aging and promoting overall skin health.
3. Three Minutes a Day, Anytime, Anywhere
Nobody has the time or money to spend on skincare that doesn’t work, and that’s the beauty of Solawave’s cutting-edge tech. The soothing warmth and facial massage transform your nightly skincare routine into a luxury spa treatment in just three minutes (and at $169, it costs about as much as a single facial). The wand head rotates 180º, which makes it effortless to target those hard-to-reach spots like under the eyes.
The compact shape and size means you can take it along wherever you go, and it even comes with its own travel case so you never have to sacrifice your skincare routine on vacation.
4. Award-Winning Tech, Backed by Science
When Solawave’s team of designers and engineers set out to create an affordable multifunctional tool that works for every skin type, they went straight to the science. Backed by decades of research, the dermatologist-approved wand was developed to deliver the most effective results possible. This includes seven dual-core LEDs to achieve healthier-looking, glowing skin fit for the red carpet.
5. The Proof Is in the Pictures
It’s not just celeb makeup artists that love Solawave. Since launching in 2020, Solawave has accrued an impressive collection of praise from estheticians, dermatologists, and publications like Allure, Forbes, and The Cut.
Most importantly though, Solawave has hundreds of thousands of happy customers of all ages who are not shy about sharing their before and after photos.
Your New Favorite Tool in Your Skincare Arsenal
Consider the Radiant Renewal Skincare Wand your own personal glam team that fits in your medicine cabinet.
While the wand is soothing and meditative to use, it’s basically a workout for your face. And just as you won’t get abs overnight, the best results come with daily use—most people see a tangible impact in two or three weeks.
In fact, Solawave is so confident you’ll see results in that timeframe they have a full 30-day guarantee. We’d suggest taking your own before and after pics because the results speak for themselves.
So, if you’re ready for Met Gala red carpet-ready skin, we couldn’t recommend Solawave’s Radiant Renewal Skincare Wand more.
