We've been taught to embrace face masks. From cold, wet sheet masks to gloopy, tightening clay masks, those experiences are seen as luxury moments in our day. But one product is hoping to change that. Foreo's UFO debuted at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week.
Foreo's Luna is one of the most popular cleansing brushes around, as its silicone texture is safe for sensitive skin and great for throwing in your travel bags. So it's no surprise that the brand is looking to revolutionize the way we're pampering our skin with masks as well.
"Is lying under cold, wet sheets of paper the best we can do for 2018?" asks Foreo's CEO, Paul Peros.
Once you recover from the personal attack on your self-care routine, check out what the UFO is doing to try to make the answer to that question 'no.'
1. LED light therapy
Red lights help with age-defying, green brightens and blue fights acne.
Freezing-cold temperatures in the name of skincare.
Similar to cryotherapy but using warmth.
4. T-sonic pulsations
These pulsations are used in the Foreo Luna, and they work to get deep into your skin's layers, cleaning both gently and deeply.
And there are two treatment options for your specific needs. Once you secure the mask itself in the UFO and press the button to activate it, you're ready to go!
1. Wake Up Call Treatment
This one will hydrate your skin with hyaluronic acid and red algae. The combo also fights the effects of pollution. The first 30 seconds has red LED skin preparation, 30 more seconds of sonic pulsing (which helps your skin absorb mask essence better), and finally you'll wrap things up with 30 seconds of green LED light and lower-frequency pulsations to add radiance.
2. Call It A Night Treatment
Round out your evenings with the ginseng and olive oil mask to nourish your skin and replenish it overnight. Start with 30 seconds of high-frequency pulsing and red LED light and round out the final minute with lower-frequency T-sonic pulsations and red LED light which will enhance blood circulation and restore your skin's elasticity.
Once your treatment is done you'll be able to rinse the device and discard the mask. You can control details like temperature, light intensity and the intensity of the pulsations through an app on your phone.
Foreo launched UFO on kickstarter, but it will eventually retail for $279 (while a miniature version will retail for $179). But if you back the product early on (they've already raised $130,000 and counting) you'll receive up to 50 percent off.
Welcome to the future of skincare!
