Most Helpful Positive Review Seems effective, but not enough instruction
I picked up this up in January when I was in Singapore and have been using most days since. I've noticed that the small crease in my forehead has become less noticeable and my skin is looking very healthy. However, my complaint is that there is not enough information about how to use this device. There is only one sequence when you connect it to the app, and there is no guidance as to how often it should be used, or how it fits into your skincare routine. I have been using it almost once a day after using my UFO (using the remaining serum instead of applying the Serum Serum Serum it directs). I have no idea if this is the right approach or not. It also appears to have 5 settings, as there are 5 indicator lights, but I don't know what they do, and the device will only turn on about half the time without connecting to the app. Hopefully Foreo will provide more guidance and information on this product so that I can get the most of it. It seems to be a good product and I am noticing an improvement in my skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review ok
I was looking forward to buying one of these 6 months before it was released but unfortunately I'm not that wowed by it now that I have one.
I bought the mini because I wasn't sure which one to get, if I could swap it for the regular bear I would. I'm 30, I have been using the mini almost every day for 3 weeks now and see no visible difference. It must be doing something though as I can feel the occasional shock every now and then!
I thought that there would be 3 programs to choose from on the app but there is only one (plus one manual option, but without instructions). Hopefully more programs are being developed to add to the app later? The annoying part about the program is that its only 2 mins but you really need to do more than that. You follow a video via the app but the first 20 seconds is just a lady rubbing the serum onto her face, it's very annoying because if you want to repeat the treatment you then have to add more serum (because by the time you've had to wait 20 seconds of doing nothing, the serum has been absorbed into your skin so you'll have to use more). The serum serum serum is nice (bought separately), the instructions say use a conductive gel but really this means any water based serum.
For the manual option there is not enough instruction on how to use it (e.g. I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to use it directly under my eye until I read another brand's instructions for a similar device!) I ended up googling instructions and youtube videos for other devices (which makes me think that, although I love foreo, there may be better devices out there). If the program didn't waste the first 20 seconds, there were more instructions and the app had 3 programs I might recommend the regular bear to friends.

Gifted by Foreo. My Foreo Bear is amazing! I loved so much. I could feel a big difference since I started to use. My skin is firmer, toner, smoother. The fines lines and wrinkles started to disappear since the first use. I recommend it.

I am loving the FOREO Bear so far! It is a FDA clear facial toning device that actually works. I have been using this consistently and have noticed my skin looks more lifted, less puffy, and more sculpted. I received the FOREO Bear Facial Toning Device complimentary from FOREO in exchange for my honest review.

Great Facial Toning Device
Angy from Fl
I received the BEAR™ Facial Toning Device as a gifted by FOREO. I have been using this product for the last few weeks and I love it. I like to use it in my night routine and my skin appreciates it, it helps your face to be more rejuvenated. Its technology makes its use easier and gives you different options to have more routines when using the application. I love the idea of being able to give myself facials in the ease of my own home.

I received this device complimentary from Foreo for my review. I have been using it for a couple weeks now and really like how my skin feels so relaxed and rejuvenated after using it! Love how it is easy to clean, store and to travel with. Foreo Bear is also very beginner friendly as all you need to do is to download the app and then follow the directions, it provides clear different routines so it's reasonable nice! Can't wait to see the results in a couple more weeks but so far thumbs up!
Q from East Brunswick, NJ
Foreo gifted me the Bear device and the pink shade is such a cute addition to my vanity. The design fits the contours of my face so well. With any micro-current device, since long term results are usually based upon extended use and I haven't been using it regularly enough, for short term I've noticed a more lifted appearance.
Love the contour it gives me after !
Melly from Los Angeles
Never really used any device with microcurrent but this one I think I love ! I love how it makes my skin feel and it's so relaxing. I love how my face looks right after using it. The serum really helps to glide the Bear and gives your face so much hydration. Your skin looks so glowy and healthy. The contours it gives my face after each use is so satisfying ! The app is so easy to use and love how it gives you different options for the pulse. If you love skin care then you need this. Gifted by FOREO
An Amazing Handheld Device
Bay789 from Seattle, WA
I received the FOREO Bear complimentary from FOREO. The FOREO Bear is a really impressive device that uses tiny electric shocks to wake up the skin, painlessly resulting in a tighter and more lifted experience. Meanwhile, T-Sonic Pulsations go to work deep in the pores, improving circulation and eliminating toxins which means clearer, brighter skin. I personally have seen the results of these in just a week and I can't wait to see what continual usage will result in. I love the device in general. It is small, handheld, and bright pink with the cute little appearance of bear ears. It was very simple to download and pair to the app. The app is very education and includes information on how to care for your device, prepare for treatments, and even has 3 walk through treatment routines for you to follow. If that's not your style, you can just choose the massage setting and customize your t-sonic and microcurrent settings. It is also possible to use the device without the app. My biggest tip I can give is to use a great serum that will allow the device to glide across your skin for your treatment, maintaining full contact.
Already seeing results!
Gina S from Middleburg, FL
I received the Bear micro current device complimentary from FOREO. I really enjoy using this, as I can feel the micro current and it isn't painful at all. I'm pretty surprised by how easy this is to use. I started off at a level 5 micro current and have worked up to a 6 comfortably. The app is really easy to navigate and you can follow one of the workouts or go at your own pace. My jawline and facial features are already slightly more defined after a few treatments and I can't wait to see full results!
Swetha from KY
Microcurrent devices are my favorite to use on my aging skin. I always want to lift my skin and have minimal fine lines. Foreo Bear helps me with the results I want before going to a special event. I received this product complimentary from Foreo.
Helps in Depuffing
Gracie65 from Seattle, Washington
Gifted by Foreo.It delivers the results of a microcurrent facial and lymphatic drainage treatment at the same time,the microcurrent gradually lifts my facial muscles and plumps my skin, the added vibrations boost circulation
I personally prefer to do it in the morning, since that's when I could use the most toning and depuffing
mollys_beauty_reviews from Cleveland, OH
I already own (and love) the Foreo Luna device, so I was super excited to try this device. I have only had a chance to use this device a few times, but so far I'm impressed. I like that it syncs up with the app, comes in a cute bright pink color, and is small/compact. I used the device with the serum sample that it came with and also serums from a different brands, and each worked well. I found this device very easy to use, it felt like a nice relaxing massage on my face/neck, and I didn't experience any discomfort or irritation. I think it's too soon to see any dramatic results, but my skin has been looking very bright and smooth. I'm excited to continue using this and I definitely recommend it! I received this product complimentary from Foreo in exchange for my honest review.
Revi from New York
I love the treatments that are offered in the app, they are easy to follow and give you a good guideline of how to use it when you are starting out. The treatments feel nice on the face and with consistent use I am starting to see a difference in my cheek area. It's subtle, as I've been using for a few weeks but I'm excited to see more progress as I continue using it. One tip I have is be generous when applying serum so that it glides smoothly on the skin, and be careful when going around the hairline. This product was gifted by Foreo.
Jim the Runner from Santa Clara
Microcurrents do wonders to my puffiness! When I use Bear in the morning, I pretty much immediately see the difference: my face looks slimmer and more awake. If you don't know how to use it - no problem, Foreo has an app that offers several routines and guides you in the process. I used the app in the beginning, but when I got the gist of what works for me, I stopped opening the app altogether. You actually don't need the app to do the treatment, there's a button on the device that turns it on/off. The device was gifted by FOREO.
Sarahjean from San Francisco, CA
This device was gifted by Foreo for my review. I have only used this for a couple weeks so I cannot speak to the long-term benefits, but I am really enjoying it so far! I think this device is a really cool way to incorporate microcurrent treatments into your daily routine and I'm excited to see how it works for me in the long term. The app is intuitive and treatments are easy to follow. I do feel like I notice visible lifting in my mouth area after I use this, so it will be interesting to see what I notice in a few months. My only criticism is that the Foreo serum is a bit pricey. It works nicely though, as you really do need a product that gives enough slip so that you can glide the device over the skin. I tried a HA serum and it didn't work nearly as well. Overall I'm pleased with this and I'm excited to keep using it. It's well made and I recommend it if you're long for an at home micro current treatment device.

Really interesting tool, I've never used anything like this before. I find using the app a little challenging but I've only tried it a couple of times so far. No visible results yet, but the skin feels nice after using it.
a little bit pricey
len from springville ut
i find it inconvenient that you have to have the app on your phone to make it work, if you don't have it, will be impossible to start your routine, i do use it three times per week and have seen an improvement so far is good but a little bit pricey gifted by FOREO
Jamie from Philadelphia, PA
This is a great device that is powerful. It tones your face and feels so good. I love to use it when I feel I am carrying a lot of tension in my face. It is also a must have for anti aging. I love that it's a high end treatment you can do in the comfort of your own home. This product was gifted by FOREO.
McCarson from Houston TX
Like all devices of this type, we can see results with continuous and prolonged use. Its size seems perfect for the hand, the speeds feel very good on the face, but I would like to have the option of not having to use it with the app and be able to perform a routine to my liking.
Ksa from San Jose, CA
The most important past in using this device is to be consistent in how much you use it. If not, then you will not see much change. After using the device for a few weeks, I saw some improvements in my skin. I can't say how long the improvements will last and how long I will need to use the device for the improvements to last.

Lovely device easy to use and almost immediate results
Zay from New Jersey
Thankful that I recieved this item complimentary from Foreo. As I'm in my 30s not only am I trying to rid some fine lines but also prevent any future ones. I love the routines that you can follow on the app and how easy the device is to clean. It's really made a difference and very easy to incorporate into any routine because there is no set up and one charge lasts a long time.
Beautyetcblog from New York
Gifted by foreo. It's hard to talk about the functionality because it's pretty subjective and is based on how often it's used. The device is very easy to set to and use. I do think it's a device that would take several months of usage to see real results. The foreo devices makes it's easy to use by providing videos within the app that guides you on how to use the device. I dislike that only 1 sampler packet of the serum is provided. The serum functions as a conductor. I do wish enough was included to see a real difference. From the one usage of the packet my skin felt really soft after using it. But I can't say it's worth the extra $60 for It.
I highly recommend it!
Dalila from Wichita,KS
I'm really into skincare and I love doing facial massages to stimulate my skin and the products can absorb much better. I love using facial tools to massage my skin and this facial toner is exactly what I needed, it's really amazing and I love how my skin feels after using it. I love the size and it fits perfectly in my hand. I just love it and I can't wait to see how my skin transforms. Complimentary from FOREO.
Love this product!
Stephanie from Houston, TX
Gifted by FOREO but all thought are my own. This product is absolutely amazing. I wasn't sure how it was gonna do but honestly it has transformed my daily skin care. Using this tool to sculpt my face and it gave me an instant glow I absolutely loved it. The use of micro currents on your face really does transform everything. Highly highly recommend!
Allurestyle from Las Vegas, NV
Gifted by Foreo. I'm very very excited about this product! I've been wanting to try a product like this. Alrhough I've only used this a few times, I sure love that it's painless to use and it's a great facial workout! The only thing I didn't really like is the need to download an app to be able to use this.
