When it comes to beauty tools, it’s not often you get to try something entirely new. I’ve tried and tested my fair share of cleansing brushes, dermal rollers and various other fiddly bits, so when Foreo got in touch to see if I’d like to try their UFO, I couldn’t resist.
Designed to be used along-side sheet masks, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, or really how to use it, so when the box arrived, I downloaded the Foreo app (free) and got reading.
It’s surprisingly easy to pair the device with the app, and within a couple of minutes, I was deciding between enjoying a ‘Make my Day’ routine or ‘Call it a Night’ which come pre-programmed into the device. If you’re treating yourself or a loved one to a UFO this Christmas, I’d recommend throwing a couple of boxes of masks into the present too.
Using the app, you can scan the mask, and a particular sequence of vibrations and light therapy become programmed into the device, and depending on your skin’s need, the device can brighten, hydrate, nourish and smooth.
It’s a genius idea, and the mix of technology and the UFO itself is perfect for giving yourself a real spa experience at home. Like all Foreo devices, the UFO is equipped with a good battery which allows for charging, so if you want to take it with you on your travels, you won’t need to pack the charger too!
Using the UFO couldn’t be easier – just select your mask of choice, positioning it onto the base of the machine, clipping it in. Then, using the app, scan the barcode on the back of the mask packet. Your phone will then lead you through a relaxing treatment which lasts about 90 seconds.
Depending on whether you’re looking to brighten skin, or hydrate, the UFO uses a mix of high frequency vibrations and light therapy to treat the skin. The device even warms up or cools down depending on your selected program – and if you’ve not tried a warmed up sheet mask before, you have no idea what you’re missing out on! Depending on how much time you’ve got (and how your skin feels), you can cycle through the process again.
To say I’m a fan doesn’t really cover it. I’ve been using the UFO regularly for the past few weeks, and my skin feels and looks softer, smoother and better hydrated. It’s an easy, and enjoyable addition to my skincare routine, and I’ve been really impressed with the selection of masks on offer, and have already invested in a selection, which I’ll post about soon. It’s an absolute must-have product, which makes a visible difference to your skin after a single treatment, and if you’re looking for the perfect gift for any beauty lover – you won’t go wrong with Foreo’s UFO!
Foreo UFO is priced at £249 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
