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.

Have you ever tried Foreo Luna?
just the play version. did not do anything for me. are you considering one?
honestly, the only kind of tool I noticed a difference with is this kind whether from Shein or Dermapore
I’m considering the big Luna, but not that soon. I’m now waiting for Ufo (got mini because I don’t feel I need the kryogenic function for the difference in price between the regular one and the mini) and I have Bear which works on me.
I’m not a fan of Shein, so I’m very much on the fence about the device but I definitely need to take my cleansing up a notch
This device is also available from many other brands. I even reviewed the Dermapore one on here but it did not last and was too expensive for how long it lasted – it stopped charging. The issue with Foreo Luna or other cleansing brushes is that they are recommended to be used for several minutes and that leads to over exfoliation.
Devices such as the above or any of its kind do a different kind of cleansing though / they pull out the dirt and puss or other such things from your pores. It is visible on the silver/metal bit 🙂 it helped me a lot with inflamed spots that caused pain in particular. However in general a good cleanser should be more than enough for the cleansing part. That combined with treatments should do the trick.
What concerns do you have in regards to your skin that you feel like you need to do more in terms of cleansing?
Ooo, you noticed a difference from using the bear? I also have my eyes on the UFO. They had some amazing deals at LF for Christmas for the past couple of years but felt like I could not justify the purchase.
I remember what happened with your Dermapore device so I’m going to steer clear from it.
I’ve got visible pores and blackheads on my nose as well as uneven skin on my forehead. Although recently it’s been better in this regard. For now I’ll use my exfoliating products more often and once I’ve depleted my stash I’ll think about a device.
Yeah, I’ve been diligent with Bear and I see results, although it’s rather subtle, but of course can’t compare it to an invasive procedure in a clin8c (I wish, though!)
I should have my Ufo early next week, so I’ll share my impressions. There was a generous promo last weekend and I decided to splurge. Buying Bear was that border in my head, because before I never really thought of buying anything Foreo since it’s just expensive. My two friends are absolutely enchanted with Bear and that’s how I decided to invest. I started to visit a beautician for high tech (albeit noninvasive) procedures so with that in mind Foreo stopped being expensive
I see. Do keep me posted on the UFO please 🙂
As for this device, my point was that if you want to try something like it there are many brands. It is not worth looking at more than £15 though even if it is not a SHEIN device.
What cleanser are you using right now?
Now I’m using Ole Henriksen ‘The Truth’ (I like it better than Kate Somerville ‘DeliKate’ i finished a couple of weeks ago) and been exfoliating with The Drunk Elephant TLC. I noticed my pores are way less visible and thus less clogged which is probably a combo of Bear and softer water because the water itself makes such a difference to my skin
Hmm, I completely agree that water is very important. I spent a week in London and my hands looked like I put them in boiling water due to the high chlorine content or other water treatments – all wrinkly, dry, red and cracked even though I used hand cream several times per day every day while I was there . They just barely got back to normal… so yes water is important. However, I can add that neither of the cleansers you’ve mention really worked on me when it comes to minimalizing pores and removing black heads completely. They were ok don’t get me wrong but did not do deep cleansing IMO. They did an ok job but I know it can be better.
Have you ever tried the Belif blackhead pore buster or Dr Jart Dermaclear cleansers? Also stay tuned as tomorrow I will showcase another cleanser that worked really well for me.
Or actually have you tried any K-beauty cleanser? Most are “built” differently.
It may be worth a try before investing a fortune in a device you way not actually need. Now, if the Luna is something you must have then ok, got for it if it makes you happy. However, it might not render the results are you are looking for and those results may be achieved with a small change in products 🙂
Ah, I don’t remember any groundbreaking cleansers, and yeah, these I mentioned don’t work wonders on my skin. I’ve got so many cosmetics and the roster that I don’t really pay attention or remember what I use. I notice if something is wrong or if something works exceptionally well, but that almost never happens:)
I haven’t used the ones you mentioned so I’ll add them to my wishlist. Maybe I’ll stop buying all those sets and consciously choose products I use.
You mentioned the Juice to Cleanse powder washes if I am not mistaken. Not even those worked? Those type of products are usually really good at removing black heads
I used it during travel only and focused on the fact, that it was super convenient to have a powder as it’s light and poses no issue with boarding a plane. Maybe it did something good but I didn’t use it long enough. At that time it was simply pleasant to use and didnt leave my face feeling unpleasant. I still have a bunch of sachets I keep for travel but maybe I’ll use them once I’ve finished the one I have now
Powder washes are a bit harsher in my experience but they compliment well regular washes that do not impress^^. However the Dr Jart or the SkinFood one I mentioned in the other article should work well. If you ever do try them, I look forward to hearing your thoughts 🙂
