Product Review: FOREO UFO

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

     Skincare trends always come and go and in the past years, I've seen a lot of those here and abroad. If you are a certified skincare junkie, I bet that you've seen the evolution- from the basic wash, tone, and moisturize up to the meticulous Korean nth step routine. Even the formulas have leveled up to cater to almost all skin problems and needs. There are devices too and these are labeled as the skincare of the future. Prolly you've tried using or adding a weekly face mask into your skincare routine and have noticed that it gives an added boost to the effectiveness of your skincare products. 

     But not all face masks are created equal because I've recently discovered how to do the utmost self-care using a device that's been the talk of the town- say hello to my revolutionary luxury spa at home- UFO by Foreo Sweden. I’ve been using this baby for weeks now and amazed at how it works. It only takes 90-seconds to achieve a spa-like facial and flawless, glowing-looking skin at the comfort of home. ⁣⁣Sharing my in-depth review of this smart device after the jump.

Product Review: UFO by FOREO 

     My skin has been good and bad during the quarantine days. There are days that it's clear and smooth but because of the stress brought about by the pandemic, it's acting up most of the time especially when it's the time of the month. Discovering the UFO is one of the highlights of my life in quarantine. These statements "Korean Mask Experts Meet Swedish Beauty Technology" and "The world’s most sophisticated smart mask, got me sold. I'm skeptical at first because it will only take 90 seconds for me to do my face mask routine but after trying it for two weeks, I fell in love with the device. It's already an essential part of my skincare routine because, in that span of time, it gave my skin the moisture it needs while reducing the appearance of pores.

     UFO by FOREO offers a wide array of activated masks like The Daily Duo, Advanced Collection, and Farm to Face collection. I'll be discussing more of this in my next post. For this review, I decided to try The Daily Duo because I've been experiencing dry patches on my face but oily on the t-zones. This two is called as such because it's meant to be use day and night.  

     Make My Day- a powerful combination of Hyaluronic Acid + Red Algae Extract that hydrates the skin energizes skin for a refreshed complexion and healthy glow. Instantly infuses moisture into the skin, giving it the perfect amount of hydration. Protects skin from harmful free-radicals with an anti-pollution barrier.

   Call It A Night- revitalizing and nourishing ginseng and olive oil that deeply nourishes and rejuvenates tired skin. It leaves the skin smooth and moisturized. An anti-pollution barrier protects skin from harmful free-radicals. 

How to use UFO by FOREO 

1. Make sure you charge the device first using the USB cable that comes with your UFO so you can use it longer. I've used it a couple of times before I saw the low battery signal.

On top of the UFO is the power button while the charger pin is located at the bottom.

2. Turn on the device by pressing hard the power button for 5 seconds. You'll see the on/off button on top of the FOREO UFO (logo facing at you). Download the app, pair your UFO via BlueTooth, and register your device. You can add as many Foreo devices as possible.

Download the Foreo App before using the device

3. Once your set, this voice-activated device will instruct you to scan the barcode of your chosen face mask. The daily duo masks- Make My Day and Call It A Night is the default programs. You just have to scan their bar codes that you can see at the bottom of their box packaging so you can start placing the mask sheet on the device.

The UFO-Activated Mask that I tested was The Daily Duo-
Make My Day for daytime and Call It a Night before bedtime

4. The UFO-Activated Mask is a tiny circular sheet with a tail (see the photo below). The mask is drenched with serum upon opening the packaging so be careful when pulling it out. Secure the mask by placing it on top of the device using the transparent ring with the Foreo logo facing in front then voila, press the start button on your app and enjoy the refreshing 90-second masking by gliding the UFO on your face in a circular motion.

This is how you place your chosen mask in your UFO

5. The app will guide you from the start until the end of the treatment. There are relaxing music and soothing voice instruction explaining the whole process while using the UFO.

     I religiously use The Daily Duo for seven days and very happy with the results. I think masking like this is more effective than natural masks made at home or sheet masks because the UFO helps in making the ingredients penetrate the skin. The combination of cryo and thermo-therapy plus the T-sonic pulsations make the serum more potent during the treatment that's why it delivers once absorbed by the skin.
 
Product Review: UFO by FOREO 
This is my bare face after using The Daily Duo for seven straight days. I noticed that there's a difference in the pores in my cheeks. My skin is brighter too.

What I like:
  • The color selection is nice. It's very pretty in person.
  • I can say it's handy and operation is seamless. Though there's a mini UFO, this still fits my palm and has an ergonomic design. 
  • I super agree that it's a time saver because instead of the usual 20-minute mask routine, UFO does it all, only better, in just 90-seconds.
  • There's a wide array of masks to choose from. I like that the mask is drenched in serum but does not come to waste because once it is activated in the UFO, all of it will be absorbed by the skin. If not, you can still repeat the 90-seconds treatment until the mask sheet has been completely used.
  • Because of the hyper-infusion technology, the serum is completely absorbed into the deepest layers of skin giving superior results.
  • I like that it rejuvenates the skin in an instant. It locks in moisture while reducing the appearance of pores.
  • I love the pampering effect; I get a soothing facial massage every time I use the UFO. 
  • Evenly distributes mask ingredients across every area of the face (unlike the conventional sheets masks which create air pockets that reduce benefits)
  • It's easy to clean. I just need to place it under running water every after use.
  • I enjoy the long battery life after a complete charging cycle. 

What I don't like:
  • The price may be steep for budget-conscious individuals.

Will I repurchase? Not for now but it's in the realm of possibility. This is a special skincare device that's worth the investment. 

Recommendations
     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. UFO doesn't come cheap but it's worth the investment. This device is easy to use and saves time and energy. The mask's ingredients are straight forward and target specific skin problems. If my skin needs moisture there's a variant to hydrate it, if my skin is dull and time to glow it up, I just have to reach for that variant. 

     The Daily Duo Masks gave my skin the moisture it needs and I saw an improvement in my pores. Though it's not that drastic, I saw a change in size. I usually wake up with oily T-zones and enlarge pores but during the time I'm using the duo, my skin is supple, less oily and yes, the pores shrunk (see photo above).

     If you are the type who invest in skincare products and wanted to keep your skin in good condition at home, this device is for you. It gives the same effects as a luxury facial spa which enables you to have professional quality treatments in your own home for a portion of the price. Buy your FOREO UFO in Lazada, click here: https://foreo.se/kfb
