Our review

FROM LUNA TO UFO

In just 5 years FOREO has changed the beauty world. From the very first LUNA to the latest and greatest UFO.  Foreo’s UFO promises a treatment like a professional facial in just 90 seconds, completely mess –free. Effortlessly easy and super speedy to use, this super-cute little gadget is designed to be used with Foreo’s mini sheet masks, developed exclusively in Korea and combining plant and fruit extracts and botanical oils. The masks will combine heating, cooling, and T-Sonic pulsations to deliver the ingredients more effectively into the upper dermal layers. Foreo is customised to improve the absorption of active ingredients; age-defying, collagen-stimulating red light; bacteria-busting and blood circulation-boosting blue light; brightening green light; thermotherapy (heats up to 50 degrees) to help ingredients to penetrate deeper in skin and, finally, cryotherapy (cooling) to tighten pores, simultaneously lifting and firming the skin.  There are no rules in the world of beauty, and we always want more and more. This product may be weird and totally different, but we are here for it!

This extraterrestrial innovation for face treatments, which even its name associates us on that, is a device that every beauty blogger wants. I've tried a smart face mask FOREO UFO and here is what I think of it.  

 

MY SKIN

First and foremost I must mention that I'm very cautious when trying new cosmetic products on my skin because my skin is very sensitive, it reacts on aggressive products. Besides, my face is covered with acne and it's dry around my nose and chin area. Therefore I was very curious to see the results. Yet this 90-seconds treatment is adjusting to every skin type so it can be used with no fear of those who have more sensitive skin than mine.



HOW TO USE FOREO UFO

UFO is very easy to use in just a few steps.

  1. You can download the FOREO UFO app on your smartphone. Within few questions you'll determine your skin type and its sensitivity. Treatment will be adjusted to you.

  2. After you've made your profile, make sure that bluetooth on your phone is turned on, then you can pair it with UFO – press the main button on your UFO device.

  3. On your phone screen will appear options for day or night care.  Select which option do you want, scan the code on mask package, remove it and adjust it by removing the attachment ring, put the sheet mask on gold base and put the ring back on. You are ready to use it!

  4. While you are sliding on your face with this device, you can follow on your phone what's happening. The device first warms up, while its warm it starts to pulsate and then cools down.

 

FEELINGS DURING AND AFTER THE TREATMENT

First I tried day mask "Make My Day" that contains Korean moisturizing formula with red algae and hyaluronic acid which kills bacteria. Sheet mask is soaked with gel and it has nice refreshing smell, but more important is that it doesn't contain alcohol. When its removed from the wrap there is still plenty of gel inside that you can squeeze on the paper blain which you put on device. You can also repeat treatment with that "excess" gel.

Treatment begins with 30 seconds - it uses thermo-therapy and red light to prep skin for optimal absorption of the sheet mask’s ingredients, to open all the pores so mask can work deeper. Warmth that you feel is followed with red light for anti-aging. Heat is comfortable and relaxing, and as you move device around your face with circular movements it is combined with T-Sonic pulsations (it emits 10,000 T-sonic pulsations per minute).

Last 30 seconds combines thermo-therapy with lower frequency pulsations and green LED for a brightening effect. Device gradually cools, it is still pulsing but with lower intensity.

After treatment there is still plenty of gel on your face, and the instructions on your app advise you to rub it gently in your face. Although first feeling after treatment is stickiness on your face, but after just few minutes mask is completely absorbed and leaves the skin soft.

It’s amazing what you can do in just a minute and a half.




THE RESULTS  - DOES FOREO REALLY WORK?

If you ask me, it makes you feel like you're getting a luxe, in-office treatment in the comfort of your own home. The results are what sealed the deal for me, though. After a minute and a half of massaging my face, I stopped and patted the remaining essence into my skin per the directions. Then I looked in the mirror and nearly fell over.

After the "Make My Day" mask my face feels soft, tight and it looks glowy – as if I had good night's sleep or as if somebody pinched my face, improved circulation and evened my skin tone. Dry areas around my nose and chin are no longer dry and they look like they've never been dry.

What surprised me the most is the fact that my skin stayed like this even 2 days after, despite being washed and full of makeup.  

Even though it is recommended to use this mask every day, in my case, nothing terrible would have happened if you'd skip a couple of days. Same effect remains at least 2 days after the treatment.

If I have to choose between day and night mask "Call it a Night" with rich olive oil and regenerating ginseng, I would choose night mask. However, night mask gave me a feeling of nourishment and calmness during and after the treatment, also leaving the same feeling few days after.



COMPARISON WITH OTHER FACE MASKS

I'll compare UFO with other Korean formula sheet masks because it is such a type of face care.

My experiences with sheet masks are not the best. They are clumsy for putting on the face and are held on face in average of 15-20 minutes. Most of them contain alcohol which, as I said, damages my skin. From the last sheet mask, redness stayed few days on my skin and I couldn't get rid of it.  

 

FOREO UFO facial masks do not contain alcohol, parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones or mineral oils, and treatments are customized to your skin so I believe that is why I haven't experienced any bad reactions on my skin.



ABOUT TEHNICAL THINGS

  1. Rechargeable by USB, lightweight and transportable – you can have amazing UFO experience anywhere around the world.  It charges relatively fast (one hour), I plugged it into a charger from my cell phone. You can use it 40 times until it is empty again.

  1. 100% waterproof design is easy to clean between use. Stand is also included so it is always at hand reach.

  2. Every UFO comes with 10-year quality assurance and 2-year limited warranty.



CONCLUSION

It is worthily replacement for salon nutritional facial treatments, which can now be made at home.

Although we've already renamed UFO in an alien who took our skin and returned it soft and vitalized, this device whose name is actually abbreviated of "Ur Future Obsession", certainly became my obsession and I do not doubt it will become yours too.  

Interesting fact: the FOREO UFO was the exclusive skincare partner of Victoria Beckham’s New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018 runway show to prime and prep models' skin.



IS IT WORTH THE PRICE? WHERE TO BUY FOREO?

If you're someone who's hoping to cut their skin-care routine in half without sacrificing results, I'd highly recommend picking up a UFO for yourself to see if it works as well for you as it did for me.  Plus, based on my results, I personally think it's worth the investment. Not only is it one of the quickest ways to treat your skin, but it's also safe for all skin types — even the most sensitive — and it's 100 percent waterproof and portable. Interested?
