Featuring a gifted item
I am a massive fan of face masks. Quick and simple, they are the perfect pampering treat for this busy mum. Up until recently, I generally stuck to the Garnier sheet masks. Having recently branched out a little, I was really excited when I was sent across the UFO Smart Mask from FOREO to feature in my Mother’s Day Gift Guide. I couldn’t wait to try it out as the reviews are amazing, and I was not disappointed!
The device is ready to use from the box. All you need to do to set it up is download the interactive FOREO app. This then guides you through a short questionnaire, which tailors your face mask experience based on your skin type. I am a sucker for an app, and this one is so feminine, I loved it!
The UFO is compatible with a specially formulated range of Korean face masks, activated by the device. They come in the most adorable pastel packaging.
For my first use of the device, I went for the Make My Day face mask, included with the device. The masks come in a pre-cut circle, which simply slots over the device. Reattach the outer ring and you are good to go. The app instructed me to move the UFO device over my face circles, making sure to pay attention to all areas including the neck.
The UFO uses hyper-infusion technology combining heat to open pores, pulsations to infuse the ingredients deep into the skin and cryotherapy to firm the skin whilst sealing in the ingredients of the mask. After a short amount of time, the device began to slowly heat up to a warming temperature before cooling back down again, leaving my skin feeling totally refreshed and revitalised. Unlike some face masks, this didn’t leave my face feeling sticky, instead I felt like I was at a spa, without the need to have left the comfort of my own bedroom.
As the UFO is 100% waterproof, you can simply run it under a tap to clean it ready for the next use. No mess, no fuss and only requiring a minute and a half out of your day, this device is incredible. The price tag is fairly high, but if you look at how much you would save on salon facials, the UFO may well be worth the investment.
I was gifted the UFO smart mask to feature in my Mother’s Day Gift Guide, however I was under no obligation to write this post and all words and images are my own.
