The 90 Second Facial Treatment

Want a luxurious face mask that gives you revolutionary results in only 90 seconds? Well you're in luck, there is a clever little device on the market that does just that. The Foreo UFO is the newest release to the innovative skincare brand. It's a pricey device, so is it really worth the money?

Introducing the smart mask treatment that makes your old mask look like sheet. Combining the latest in skincare tech with Korean mask formulas into one easy, at-home beauty device. The UFO lets you enjoy a spa-level facial treatment every morning and night, or whenever you have 90 seconds to spare.

UFO instantly infuses mask essence deep below the skin’s surface for better, longer-lasting results while at the same time delivering a dynamic photofacial. A truly transformative skincare experience, this is the end of sheet masks as we know it. The Heating treatment softens the skin and opens the pores, infusing mask essence into the deepest layers of the skin. The Cooling treatment lifts and firms while shrinking the appearance of pores and reducing inflammation. T-sonic Pulsations facilitate deeper absorption of the serum while providing a soothing facial massage. A full spectrum of LED lights help enhance the skin: Red LED erases signs of ageing and stimulates collagen production for younger-looking skin. Green LED brightens a dull complexion and evens skin tone for an instant boost of radiance. Blue LED targets acne-causing bacteria and stimulates blood circulation for a healthier-looking complexion.



The UFO comes in two sizes. The original and the mini. The original retails for $395, while the mini retails for $257. They are definitely an investment products. I have the UFO Mini and from my understanding there is not a huge difference between the two. The UFO Mini is a more affordable smart mask treatment, FOREO UFO mini features the same full-spectrum RGB LED as well as T-Sonic pulsations and a warming function to infuse mask essence into the skin. But because it is not equipped with Cryo-Therapy, UFO mini is not compatible with all UFO Activated Mask formulas, and cannot offer all the same skin benefits as the flagship UFO model.

The UFO works by connecting to your phone, you can do so via bluetooth. Once it's all hooked up, you take your mask of choice (which I will talk about in a second) and apply it under the ring on the back. The mask itself is like a cotton pad, or a small round sheet mask, covered in essence. Once you have put the mask on, you press start on the app and then just massage the device on your face and neck for 90 seconds. Depending on which mask you are using you will feel the device heat up, use T-Sonic vibrations and blue, red and green LED. Once the mask is finished, you simply remove the mask and wash your device.



I LOVE the app. It is simple to use, steps through how to use the device and plays calming music while the device is working to help you get a 90 second mindful relaxation in. 

Now let's talk about masks:

Make My Day 

This luxurious red algae and hyaluronic acid face mask is just what your skin needs to start the day. Until now, masking in the morning just wasn’t feasible. But this 90-second UFO facial treatment leaves skin looking and feeling hydrated, protected and ready for anything!

As the description states, this is a morning mask, designed to give your skin a hydrating boost, leaving it looking radiant and glowy, ready for you to take on the day. I love that it's a quick 90 second treatment. It makes it feasible to do in the morning before doing your make up. I might use this once a week, and then follow it with a moisturiser. The mask comes with lots of serum and leaves your skin feeling hydrated, but works well under make up. Definitely the perfect morning pick me up!

Call it a Night 

Formulated with rich olive oil and rejuvenating ginseng, this deeply nourishing face mask is the perfect end to each day. All you need is 90 seconds to indulge in a relaxing UFO facial treatment that will leave your skin oh-so-smooth and dreamy-soft.

This mask is probably my favourite of all the ones I have tried. I use this before bed, after removing my make up and before doing my usual skincare routine. There is enough serum and the mask is hydrating enough that if I am feeling particularly lazy I don't need to apply moisturiser afterwards. Whenever I use this mask, I find that I wake up with my skin looking AMAZING! It looks glowy, hydrated and clear. I don't know if it's just my imagination, but I also feel like it helps my spots clear up and my skin just look clearer and more even by morning. I love it so much!

H2Overdose Mask 

Infused with hyaluronic acid, this microfiber face mask instantly drenches dry, thirsty skin in soothing moisture. Pair with UFO or UFO mini for the ultimate 2-minute facial treatment for dry skin – because hydrated skin is healthy skin! 

This mask takes a little longer than the other two, but is perfect if you have dry skin. It gives an instant glowy, hydration boost to the skin. I can see this being perfect through winter, because it gives the skin an instant boost, and the LED and T-Sonic vibrations help it to skin deep into the skin. 

Glow Addict Mask 

Infused with pearl extract, this microfiber face mask instantly illuminates dull skin for a radiant, healthy glow. Pair with UFO or UFO mini for a 90-second brightening facial treatment guaranteed to make a Glow Addict out of you!

This was by far the mask I was most excited to try. I am all about getting the glow. Much like the Make My Day, it leaves the skin feeling hydrated and smooth. Does it give the best glow? Not the most amazing glow in the world now. Yes, my skin looks glowier and more hydrated, but I wasn't amazed by this mask. It is twice the price of the Make My Day, but gives similar results and I would probably choose the Make My Day over the Glow Addict unfortunately. 



Ok, so if you didn't pick up from the post, I am LOVING my UFO Mini. Yes, it's an expensive device and the masks are not exactly cheap to pick up, but the effect it has on my skin is great. It definitely leaves my skin feeling and looking like I have had a salon facial without leaving the comfort of my own home. I love the app that works alongside it. It is a luxurious purchase and if you don't have the money, well you probably aren't missing out, but I am loving using it!
