Masking is something I can never live without in my everyday life. You may think it’s crazy, but yes, I mask every day. Due to my dry combination skin, I have to mask as often as I can, so that I can pack my skin with ample hydration and allow it to repair itself quickly.
Masking can be relaxing but for working adults like us, time is forever an issue. I often find masking a chore because of how much time I need to sacrifice at night just to do it. A usual sheet/clay mask will take you at least 20 minutes and who in the world has got time for that?!
A transcendent smart mask treatment, the FOREO UFO combines advanced dermal technologies with exclusive Korean mask formulas for everyone to enjoy a decadent facial treatment in just seconds. It comes in a handy pocket friendly size that fits right into your palm. You can bring it anywhere and everywhere, even when you’re travelling! I’m already thinking of bringing it with me for my next trip because I can then keep my skin well-hydrated without getting judged (with the sheet mask on) on the plane.
What’s so unique about the FOREO UFO and what differentiates it from being just an ordinary masking device is its technology. It is equipped with its Hyper-Infusion Technology – one that utilises our skin’s natural reactions to heat and cool, coupled with T-Sonic pulsations to facilitate the masking process and to ensure that the active mask ingredients get absorbed into the skin effectively.
As you flip to the smoother side of the UFO, you’ll see the smooth metal plate for you to place and secure your mask. This is the area where the device heats and cools during the masking process, or what I call, a masking “module”. The warming sensation is experienced with gentle heat during the Thermo-Therapy mode that relaxes and soothes the mind, while the cooling sensation is experienced during the Cryo-Therapy mode for reducing pore size and puffiness. The device also utilises a painless, UV-free phototherapy treatment with red, green and blue LED light to effortlessly rejuvenate the skin.
What I enjoyed most about each masking session with the UFO is the unique patented T-Sonic Pulsations that the device produce. With carefully designed rhythmic pulsations, the UFO helps to gently massage your skin while helping you to relax.
For a few moments every day, the UFO whisks you away into a world with nobody but yourself. For just a few seconds before you start the day, or before you rest for the night, indulge in a quick yet luxurious masking sensation to refresh and invigorate your skin with the UFO.
As the UFO is still pretty new, there are only two mask variants:
- Make My Day – contains Hyaluronic Acid and Red Algae to intensely hydrate and energise skin
- Call It A Night – contains Ginseng and Olive Oil to revitalise and nourish skin
I enjoy Make My Day much more because I find that it is very hydrating and I’ve also noticed a nice radiant glow peeking through my skin right after I use it! Even though the mask range is pretty limited now, I’m sure the brand has got a lot more in their sleeves in time to come.
All you need to do is to fit the mask sheet into the plate, secure it with the plastic ring then connect the device via the FOREO App to start the masking module. Each module is approximately 90 seconds.
Being a device that’s made to be travel-friendly, it requires USB charging instead of the usual plug-to-socket style. It is also 100% waterproof so you just need to wash it with tap water after every masking session to clean. A smart skincare investment, every UFO comes with a 10-year quality guarantee and a 2-year limited warranty.
All in all, it may be a little pricey at SGD408, I believe this is a worthy investment that will pay off as it helps you save time to look pretty, anytime, anywhere.
The FOREO UFO comes in 3 colours – pearl pink, mint and fuchsia – and retails at Sephora stores and Sephora Online.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! XOXO, Roanna.
