Most Helpful Positive Review This is for the NuFace Facial Toning Device
The previous reviewer doesn't seem to understand that this is only for use with the NuFace Toning Device. I've been using the device for a couple of years. If you don't use it with their primer you will ruin the device and potentially damage your skin. This primer is a great update to replace the original. This one you can leave on after you use the device and continue your skin care regime. The original you had to remove with a warm washcloth, which was fine, it was just an extra step. I'm thrilled for this one and think it's great, particularly for dry skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Sooooo DRYING!!!
I was so excited to try my NuFace but this gel that goes with it is extremely drying and irritating to the skin. I have pretty combination skin that leans more toward the oily side and this oil dried my face so much that it is cracking and peeling all over! I have also started to get some cystic acne on my cheeks that is not a common occurrence for me at all. I started using my Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask in place of this and it has been getting better but that mask is EXPENSIVE. I've read reviews that others have been able to use aloe vera gel which I will probably try.

It's obviously a necessary product for using the microcurrent device. My face usually does really well w/ hyaluronic acid there's another ingredient though that just doesn't agree. I break out every time I use this. I'm happy with the lifting results but it always comes with a disappointing breakout which I think is counterproductive.

I've use conductive gels in the past, and you always had to wash them off - I LOVE this product! It works and I don't have a sticky mess I need to clean off.
Effective product with NuFace device.
Swanky Shopper from Los Angeles
The NuFace Hydrating Gel Primer works very well with the NuFace toning device. It enhances conductivity, is gentle for sensitive skin, and leaves no greasy residue. I've tried using simple aloe vera gel, but it just doesn't work as well. I always buy the big size pump dispenser of this primer, and a little goes a long way.
The Original (& Only Affordable One!)

My first question to Ulta is why is the 5.0 ounce container of this is more than 2.5x the amount this one is? This is a better deal in that case. This stuff is good and one of the only primers you can use for the Nuface so it's not like you have much of a choice.
It burns my skin

I ordered this when I ordered my NuFACE Mini and let's say I should of tested this first with the travel
size that already came with the Mini. As soon as I apply this it burns my skin for like 3 minutes then subsides. Also, I broke out the first week I used it. Now on the hunt for something less irritating. NuFACE should seriously review the I ingredients or come out with a formula for sensitive skin.

Hydrates the skin without leaving a sticky sensation
It's very good
Gloria Díaz from undisclosed
It is very nice and soft for the nu-face bit hidrates a lot and it's light at the same time.

The gel is a bit expensive, but it actually works. I tried swapping out for aloe gel, but the first aloe gel severely burned my face (I looked like I had been at the beach for 8 hours without sunscreen) and the other aloe gel I tried irritates my eyes. Ultimately, the NuFace gel works well and is not irritating. I put my SPF moisturizer on top, and it doesn't pill.

too expensive when you compare to Spectra 360 gel that is used in ultrasounds and is just as effective.

I love every product I've tried from NuFace! The hydrating gel is easy to use and does what it says!
Leave on Gel Primer use

This gel works well with your device after use but I found it tends to pill on my face by morning so if I use it in the morning I'll keep it on for awhile then rinse off.
My new face

Love this product,love my nuface and my New Face. I really needed a boost after cancer. My face is getting its light and it's life back.
regular use does the Trick!
MimiNM from undisclosed
good consistency so it lasts even after using it post treatment but the pricing it steeper than necessary due to branding...too bad
Best product to use with NuFace
CJ Jeff from San Angelo Texas
Excellent hydration in addition to using with your NuFace Trinity
Jax Dugr from Los Angeles
Great product for Nuface Trinity. Glides on smoothly and leaves skin smooth, and soft, and more toned looking. Use with optimizing mist spray to hydrate prior to using Nuface Trinity. Easy to use.
Linda Shane from New York, NY
I was very skeptical of the "Leave-On" part of the gel, because at age 67 I can still get breakouts. But, NO PROBLEM!
Kari Beth from undisclosed
I love the way the gel primer feels on my skin it's just very costly. You

This is not a review of my NuFace Trinity, which I give 5 stars. This is only for the gel. It does what it's supposed to do: it makes the Trinity glide over my skin easily, it is easy to apply and rinse off, the ingredients are simple and clean, and it does not irritate my skin. I liked the idea that you can leave the gel on after treatment, which saves time in the morning. However, when I applied my sunscreen over the gel, it pilled terribly, so I ended up having to rinse it off anyway. One morning when I wasn't going outside (thus no sunscreen) I left the gel on my face to see if it looked or felt better, but I didn't really notice any difference. So now I rinse it off and apply my regular skincare in the morning. I'll use up what I have, but I don't think I'll buy again; I'll just use aloe Vera or ultrasound gel next time. One suggestion: If you do buy this, I'd suggest buying the large 10 oz size. It comes in a pump dispenser (as opposed to a squeeze tube) and it's much easier to dispense the gel during a treatment.
Had to have for Nuface
Vicki411 from Atlanta, GA
I am tired of having a coupon that is worthless on half the things in this store! Totally worthless on "prestige" brands. Going to buy at Nordstroms from now on.
Love the pump
Janiceann from TN
I really like this gel coming in a larger size with a pump because it is much easier to apply. I apply with my left hand and use my mini with my right. I'm on the fence about leaving it on though. Probably because I use during my morning routine.
