This Celeb Makeup Artist’s Favorite Skin Tool is the Secret to Achieving that ‘Red Carpet Glow’

03.09.2023Author: The Suite Staff

Jennifer Coolidge. Nicole Kidman. Emma Chamberlain. Doja Cat. Reese Witherspoon…we could go on.

There’s something these A-listers all have in common (and it’s not just bank account balances with a lot of zeros). According to the makeup artists who prep the leading ladies for events like the Oscars and the Grammys, the secret to their iconic red carpet glow isn’t a $1,000 chemical peel or injectables. It’s a compact, powerful 4-in-1 skincare wand from Solawave.

We figured if Solawave is good enough to be the common denominator between America’s most photographed people, it had to be the real deal. After all, few skincare products have made their way onto our radar (and IG feed) as often as Solawave’s “magic wand.”

Solawave: More Than Just a Fad

What sets Solawave apart is that they’ve combined the strength of LED therapy and microcurrent 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

Solawave’s innovative tech works for every skin type and age group, and the impacts are trifold. With consistent use, the red light wand simultaneously prevents skin degeneration, mitigates the effects of aging, and reduces the appearance of skin damage. A skincare hat trick, if you will. 

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 microcurrent while combating blemishes and inflammation.

After giving the red light wand and serum a whirl for a few weeks, we can attest that it’s not just another buzzy fad product. Here are five reasons why we (and thousands of clear-skinned customers) are Solawave converts:

Editor’s Note (4/7): Solawave’s 9x sold-out skincare wand just got a facelift. The brand new Radiant Renewal Skincare Wand harnesses the award-winning technology of Solawave’s original wand, but with a few thoughtful upgrades and twice the red light therapy. We’d suggest ordering yours now before this new release sells out too. ✨

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 4-in-1 microcurrent tool 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—temporarily reducing the appearance of under-eye bags, puffiness, and redness—while the therapeutic warmth helps the skin absorb topical products better (like their Renew Complex Serum and all of your favorite 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 even skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and combat inflammation caused by acne. 

Paired with microcurrent (which simulates the deeper layers of the skin), the wand works over time to rejuvenate the skin, turning back the clock on signs of aging and promoting overall skin health.

3. Five 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 USB-rechargeable wand’s compact shape and size means you can take it along wherever you go, and the movable head adjusts to target those hard-to-reach spots.

The soothing warmth and facial massage transform your nightly skincare routine into a luxury spa treatment in just five minutes (and at $149, it costs about as much as a single facial).

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 scienceBacked by decades of research, the dermatologist-approved wand was developed to deliver the most effective results possible. This includes a precise red light wavelength of 660 nanometers and 300 microamps of microcurrent—the optimal combination to achieve healthier, 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 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 impressive before and after photos.

Alright, Alright…the TL;DR:

After about three weeks, our only issue with Solawave is that we didn’t find out about it sooner. 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.

If you’re on the fence about whether or not to try it, 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 interested in turning back time on your skin, we couldn’t recommend Solawave’s 4-in-1 skincare wand more. You can thank us later!
