Seriously. I'm not the type to usually "buy into the hype" surrounding whatever latest skincare gadget that comes along tends to promise with frivolous abandon. However, I had already taken the plunge with the original UFO - after a difficult phase in my life - as something of a personal "treat" to myself, and *LOVED* it. That alone was such an innovative, "glow up" gift of a product, I was eager to test out all the new functions, such as the veritable rainbow of LED Lights and all their various functions. I also have been a longtime fan of Foreo's Luna face washing/massaging brushes, so I wasn't concerned regarding quality or the potential for false or overly embellished claims that couldn't be delivered by the product.
I'm 39, and *VERY* fair with a tendency towards dry skin - but with daily use of my UFO/now UFO2 (every morning and night, with the additional"specialty" mask - usually daily, bc I'm a sucker for this stuff - for a boost in whatever is ailing my skin at the time - usually moisture, and ai love the eye mask, but you can't go wrong, imo) my skin was not only visibly more dewy, glowy, and even-toned - but it felt so much more supple and deeply moisturized to the touch. I could tell several layers of the dermis had/have been penetrated, it's not just a superficial or quick "illusion" - both the UFO/UFO2 are the REAL DEAL! And SO gently yet thoroughly exfoliated - oh my! SUPER smooth to the touch - no rough patches, just unbelievably silky. I could tell several layers of the dermis had been penetrated.
Anyway, re: the UFO 2, specifically. Obviously, I've only had it for approximately 2 weeks - that said, it IS "all that and then some"! My Luna Fofo has even noted the change. From the day I received my UFO2 to this morning, my skin has gone up a level in moisture and had 2 years deducted off of my "skin age" statistics. Cool!
I most love the updated and super-customizable rainbow of LED light features. Thus far, I've noticed certain ones have already become incorporated into particular mask's preset "routines" (such as Violet, a mix of Red's penetrative abilities with Blue's bacteria-killing strength), etc... However, I've taken note of what each color's specific function is, and created my own "routine":
I put whichever mask I choose to use on, as instructed, and follow the app's set 90 second/2 minute visually and aurally dictated runthrough for it. Then, as the routine draws to a close, I squeeze out whatever amount of serum is left in the packet (usually an ample amount) and go to "settings". Since I have typical "Irish/English" skin, ie. ultra-fair and super sun sensitive (which has been an issue, as I live currently in a country close to the equator), my skin has accumulated significant sun damage, a less even tone, increased freckles, and consistent dryness. So, I tend to use the Yellow, Orange, and/or Green LED options (which focus on, specifically, sun damage - yay!, healing, rosacea, and even skintone), paired with a light vibration (usually +3 or +4) and the "Cool" option - which feels *ah-may-zing*!!!
It may seem pricey, and I understand that factor - but I know this product will reduce the amount of costly facials I otherwise would have attempted to receive in the future. It's like being your *own* facialist, seriously! The OG UFO is already a spectacular investment, but especially of you want to experiment with UFO2-specific features, like the staggering array of LED options and/or the soothing Cryo options, the UFO2 has already more than proved its value to me - it has been worth *EVERY* penny! It's only a few minutes a day, and I bought each of the masks to test them all out (except the Caviar one - maybe one day for a future treat, lol) - and you *literally* cannot go wrong!
Also, the UFO2 has a "find me" feature, if you're a tad spacey like me at times and tend to misplace things - which is a bonus imo!
I'll post an unfiltered, sunlight only close-up picture of my mug, if possible (forgive the haircut/color, if it shows - it's quarantine time), bc I honestly do think I look pretty decent for a woman on the cusp of "the big 4-0" - and a strong skincare regime (and LOTS of SPF 50) has always been my main defence in the pursuit of aging gracefully - No botox or fillers for me, as of yet... And Foreo's products have consistently impressed me since their inception when I bought my first Luna.
Also, I just *feel* better. I sincerely look forward to my daily UFO2 sessions as precious and much needed "me" time where I can take a few minutes for self care and zone out from the insanity life often brings...
THANK YOU, FOREO!!!
Sorry for the novel, but I'm the last person to buy tons of toys and gadgets that I think are gimmicks. The UFO and UFO2 *ARE* the *REAL DEAL*!
If you're on the fence, give one a try - for yourself! It really is like being your own facialist, and it is a product I will forever endorse openly and enthusiastically. Thank you to Foreo!!!
Disappointing upgrade if you have a ufo mini 2
I bought ufo 2 after enjoying ufo mini 2 because of the cryotherapy. The temperature did not go down below 30c when using smart control after I have used a make my day treatment. In fact, the back of the device feels colder. I've tried asking customer service for exchange but I was told I'd have to shoulder the return shipment fees. So for a device of this cost, it's really not worth it. Unfortunately, I'm unable to attach a video but photo below is from the app after 1 minute of turning on for cooling, no lights activated, no pulsation.
the device is buggy, in fact there is no cooling function .. it is expensive, I regret buying this
Je reçois enfin mon ufo2 ! Trop joli, et si facile à prendre en main. Première utilisation très agréable. On a envie que cela dure plus longtemps.
Je ne peux juger sur l effet a long terme mais ravi de son arrivée à la maison.
Seul point négatif, il manquait dans le colis la brosse a dent offerte.
The ufo 2 changed my skin after the first use. It's so easy to use and has taken my 56 year old skin to a new level. People tell me that my skin glows. Love this device!
C'est mon amour 😍 je utilise presque toujours car mon visage grâce à Ufo est plus lisse et éclate fraîche fraîchement j'adore Merci Foreo ♥️
I'm a plastic surgeon and I have a lot of devices in my office. For the home use this ufo is fantastic, it really makes a change in skin wuality and likes very stylish on top
