I’m always on the lookout for new beauty products to try, so when I saw that SHEIN was selling an ultrasonic skin cleanser, I knew I had to give it a try. Ultrasonic cleansers are all the rage right now, so I was curious to see if this one lived up to the hype. Spoiler alert: it did! Keep reading to find out why I loved this product and why I think you will too.
Full disclosure, this is not my first sonic cleansing device. You might already know this as I have posted about one such device before, one that I purchased from Cult Beauty, not Shein. The reason why I wanted to give this device from Shein a try is that its price tag is several times lower, but there is more to the story so keep on reading. I promise it will be worth it, especially if you are interested in such devices.
Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser Review
How Does It Work?
The SHEIN ultrasonic skin cleanser uses high-frequency sonic vibrations to cleanse the skin. It is said to be gentle enough for use on all skin types, including sensitive skin.
To use the device, you simply wet your skin and run the device over your skin without applying much pressure after selecting the cleansing mode. The device does the rest. By gently vibrating against your skin, the device will loosen up any dirt that is clogging your pores.
I tested the SHEIN ultrasonic skin cleanser on my face and I was impressed with the results. My face felt clean and refreshed after using it. The device does a great job at removing all the gunk (blackheads and puss included). It truly helped to cleanse and unclog my pores. Bye Bye blackheads!
I have sensitive skin patches, so I was a little worried about using this device at first. But I can happily report that my skin tolerated it just fine. I experienced a bit of redness, but nothing that did not go away soon after use.
How about the other functions?
The Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser has other functions such as a lifting and moisturizing function. I have tried both, but I cannot say that I am obsessed with either. Yes, the moisturizing function is sort of okay and the device on this function does help absorb a bit better but it is not impressive. The lifting function I have not noticed doing anything for me.
At the end of the day, I got this device for its cleansing abilities and on that level, it does perform according to my expectations.
How often do I use it?
I am using the cleansing function 1-2 times per week. I am sure you could try using it more, but I did not feel the need to do so.
Based on my experience using this device, I would say that it’s definitely worth your money. It’s easy to use, gentle on sensitive skin, and it really works! If you’re looking for a good ultrasonic skin cleanser, I would recommend giving this one a try.
Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser vs Dermapore
The Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser is a great choice for those who are looking for an affordable and effective skincare device. On the other hand, the Dermapore device is more expensive, several times more expensive to be more clear.
However, at the end of the day, both the Dermapore and the Shein devices use similar technologies. At least, I could not really feel a difference between the two.
You can probably already tell where I am going with this, but let me assure you that price is not the only reason why I am fonder of the Shein version.
The Dermapore device did leave my skin feeling nice and clean, but the Shein device does too, and at a fraction of the price. The issue here is the fact that I had to resort to purchasing the Shein version in the first place because my Dermapore stopped charging.
I had the Dermapore since 2020 and used it for less than two years when it stopped charging. There was no apparent issue with the device, but no matter how much I tried and where I tried and the cable I tried with, the device would simply not charge and thus it was rendered useless.
That is a lot of money that I had to throw away – approximately £90 to be more precise.
Yet, I am so fond of what this type of ultrasonic device does to my skin that I went and got another one. I choose the Shein one because I was already placing an order at the retailer but the price did push me over the edge, so to speak.
I have been using the Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser for close to nine months now and have not had any issues. I am not expecting this device to last forever, but even if it lasts just a few more months, I still got a much better deal with this one than I did with Dermapore. Okay, maybe the issues with my Dermapore were a fluke, maybe my device was the only one with a problem, but honestly I am not willing to take another shot at it.
So, which ultrasonic skin cleanser is better – the Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser or the Dermapore? It really depends on what you’re looking for in a skincare device. If you’re looking for an affordable option that still gets the job done, then the Shein Basic Living Ultrasonic Skin Cleanser is a great choice. However, if you’re looking for a high-end option with all the bells and whistles, then the Dermapore is worth considering. Whichever device you choose, ultrasonic cleansing is a great way to deeply cleanse your skin and remove dirt and another buildup. Given the issue with the Dermapore one, I would not go for it again but I do admit that it was a great device while it lasted.
