I’ve Been a Solawave User for a Long Time Now…
And although I had my initial doubts, I can say that I’m completely in love with what this tiny device does for me. Using fancy science, it makes my face look radiant, improves my skin’s health (according to my dermatologist), and has even slowed down signs of aging—mostly in the fine lines on my forehead. I’m 32 years old, but I’ll take all the help I can get.
In fact, a few days ago, my skin was glowing so much that best friend asked if I was pregnant. And once I got over a fit of hysterical laughter (Me? A mother?? In this economy???), I had an ingenious idea. I usually get my mom a last-minute spa certificate for Mother’s Day, but this year I figured: why treat her to a single day when I could pamper her with a 4-in-1 skincare wand that’s like an all-access pass to a professional facial every day and literally turns the clock back on your skin?
The Science Behind the Magic
If you’ve never heard of the skincare device that’s been sweeping TikTok and Hollywood, allow me to dive into how this baby actually works to show you why. I mean, after using my Solawave wand for over a year, I am technically an expert.
It all starts with red light therapy. Low-wavelength red light penetrates deep into the skin to increase blood flow and stimulate collagen production, which can work to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and blemishes (amongst other things). The thing is, red light treatment usually costs a very pretty penny and requires recurring visits to your esthetician’s office. But Solawave literally puts this power in the palm of your hand.
The wand also harnesses the power of microcurrent, which stimulates deeper layers of the skin and tones facial muscles. Add in therapeutic warmth, which works to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of dark circles, plus puffiness-reducing facial massage…and it all sounds like—dare I say—a relaxing day at the spa?
Solawave Has Been Stacking Up All the Accolades
Solawave has only been around for a few years, but their science-backed, dermatologist and celebrity makeup artist-approved technology has already generated some serious clout.
In addition to going viral on TikTok, this ultra-portable, razor-sized wand has contributed to the red carpet glow of dozens of celebs, and received accolades and rave reviews from top press outlets like Harper’s Bazaar, The Zoe Report, People Magazine, Men’s Health, and many more.
That Luxurious, At-Home Spa Experience
Not only does Solawave’s “magic wand” deliver dermatologist treatment-level results in minutes—the warmth and gentle vibration will make mom’s skin feel even better than it looks. Plus, using the wand can actually increase the effectiveness of other skincare products by priming the skin to absorb the products better. It’s like everything this wand touches just turns to gold.
Pro tip: Solawave’s Renew Complex Serum works especially well with the wand, making it up to 3x more effective.
Plus, your mom will only have to use it for 5 minutes a day, making it effortless to fit into her routine. All she has to do is put on the serum, glide the wand across her face, and ride the Solawave. I can also tell you from personal experience that it’s a great way to de-stress… so giving it to your mom can also be a way to make up for all the stress you caused her growing up.
Results She Can See for Herself
Here’s the real beauty of the wand: the marriage of short-term and long-term benefits. One of my favorite things about Solawave’s technology is how it instantly de-puffs my face every morning, but many customers love the wand because of its ability to help them achieve their skincare goals over time—like reducing the appearance of wrinkles or hyperpigmentation.
I mean, just check out these ecstatic reviews from glowy-skinned Solawave users:
- “It’s no secret that I have been on the skin struggle bus for, well…years. THIS amazing device is a GAME CHANGER!!! This is the best I’ve felt about my skin in years and I keep getting compliments. My skin is glowing again!” (Melanie, 41)
- “My face is softer, and lines and wrinkles are truly fading away.” (Teri M., 65)
- “With just a few minutes of self-care per day, it’s made such a remarkable improvement in my skin.” (Monique, 47)
There are hundreds more rave reviews like this, and some stunning before-and-after photos, on Solawave’s website, if you want to take a look for yourself.
We Don’t Just Love Our Moms for a Single Day…
So, why only treat your mom to the gift of luxury once a year? The Advanced Skincare Wand comes in 3 different colors, and at $149, ($99 with the code MOM50) it’s around the same price as a single day at the spa. The difference, of course, is that this “day pass” doesn’t expire.
Solawave has a 30-day return policy, so if your mom’s not feeling it (she will), there’s no pressure for her to keep the wand. I’d suggest getting one for her and yourself so you can bond over your gorgeous skin together—I’m already getting excited about the Solawave Facetime dates I’ll be having with my mom!
