Somewhere else in New York, makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan was prepping Emma Chamberlain’s skin using the same little wand after using a few CeraVe products. “Amazing to use after your skincare to help products penetrate deeper into the skin so you stay hydrated longer,” Deenihan wrote in an Instagram story.
In a Grid post, Deenihan also called the SolaWave Wand “the best beauty prep tool” — and she’s not the only one who thinks so. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Mandy Moore are just a few other famous faces that makeup artists have used the handheld red light therapy gadget for red carpet appearances.
It combines four powerful skincare technologies in one small tool: micro-currents stimulate facial muscles to improve signs of aging, red light deeply rejuvenates skin’s radiance and appearance, weak vibrations stimulate circulation and provide a deflating facial massage, and therapeutic heat reduces redness and amplifies product absorption.
According to the brand’s website, you’ll see your best skin in two weeks when you use the wand for five minutes, three times a week. Just use it with your favorite serum, like The Sims does, or try its Renew Complex activating serum. Its celebrity fandom aside, SolaWave reviews speak volumes about why it’s a staple in your beauty routine. People say their skin feels firmer and has an overall more even skin tone since using it.
TL; DR: If you don’t already have a SolaWave wand, you need one, especially while you can get it on sale. The company is offering 25% off and free three-day shipping in honor of Mother’s Day. Just enter the promotional code MOM25 at the register. You can also buy the wand for sale on Amazon.
