I received the NuFACE+ Mini+ Petite Facial Toning Device from Influenster and NUFACE in exchange for my honest review. The NUFACE+ Mini+ Facial Toning Device is a mini smart micro current device with three intensities that overtime is supposed to help lift your face and improve the contours of your face. The device is free of potentially irritating ingredients (i.e. parabens, formaldehyde, etc.) and is vegan and cruelty-free. The set came with the device, the power adapter, the NuFACE Aqua Gel, the NuFACE Silk Crème, a brush applicator, and the user manual / guide.
I was so excited to receive and test out this product! To use this product, they recommend that you first cleanse using an oil-free cleanser. Afterwards, you apply a thin layer (mask-like layer) in one area at a time and then go in with the device. I would move the device in each area three times and increase the intensity each time. I would focus on my forehead, my cheek area, and the sides of my neck. I was a little nervous how I was going to incorporate this into my routine and I initially thought that this was going to be a lengthy step that I wouldn't be interested in. I was wrong! I was shocked how easy and straight forward it was the first time I used it. The overall process only added about five minutes to my routine and it felt really luxurious and fun. While you won't see much use after the initial use, after consistent use you will start to see a difference. I noticed some changes around the 2.5 week mark, which seems consistent with other users. I did notice that some of the reviews experienced breaking out from the activator, so after use I always washed my face and never had an issue! The device also has an app which gives you access to exclusive modes, educational content, and tracking your progress.
Overall, this is a fun and luxurious device to add to my routine. If you have concerns of aging or sagging skin, are interested in cosmetic procedures but don't want to bite that bullet, or are simply interested in a microcurrent device, this is the one!
I'm a big fan of facial devices and own another micro current device, a PMD, red lights, gua shas, and jade rollers. That said, the mini had areas that shined and a few that were more lack luster compared to other options out there.
The device comes with two activators but lack instructions on which to use. For treatment you'll need to download an app which will instruct you on when and where to apply the activator and device. Unfortunately the gel dries quickly so you need to apply and treat your face in sections, pausing the device in between. Rinse and repeat this process every time you use the device which is 5 min a day, 5x/week. The process is a bit tedious and lasting results requires full commitment and patience.
Good news is that it does work. I saw a slight fading of fine lines and a more defined jaw line. Bad news is that the activator required for the device is pricey and actual results require long term use. For the upfront cost and continual costs for the gel, I'm not sure the results are worth it. There are other devices at a lesser price point that are easier to use and offer the same effects.
I enjoyed the product, but had I not received this for free from Influenster in exchange for an honest opinion, I would not have purchased it.

I cant believe the headaches i have the day after i use this thing. I didnt connecy the dots wt first. I was teally concerned because i nevet grt heafaches. I knew i was onto something when i ised my device and noticed a headache the next day. Lasted all day and ibuprofen did nothing to alleviate my headache. Put the devide away for a month and was headache free. Used it last night and i can't even function today. Headache. This product is scary.

I've recently been interested in adding beauty devices to my anti aging routine so I'm excited about this at home micro-current treatment. This is an early review but so far the NuFACE is really convenient and comfortable to use . I'm able to tolerate the highest
setting with just some prickly sensations. I love that there's an app to guide treatment but I personally don't use it. I'd say the lift is subtle but as expected.

I've had my NuFace for over two years and have nothing but amazing things to say about it. I was very excited to try the mini. The mini is very cute and fits comfortably in my hands. Although it's smaller in size there isn't a noticeable difference between the mini and regular. Both take the same amount of time and provide an instant lift. I'd recommend the mini if you're stuck between the mini and regular. It's cheaper and results are the same. The size is great for travel and the app and application brush are also nice touches. In terms of long term results - it's hard to say. I've used the original nuface consistently and the lift disappears once you stop, so I'm not confident the mini will have better long term results.

I would so recommend I love it , it makes my face so firm and tight I love it … so if you guys are looking for a face toner I would recommend.

I wish I had known the Mini did not allow different attachments when I ordered it, otherwise would have ordered the customizable Trinity Classic.

I loved it til it stopped working less than a month after having it. Hoping the exchange wont have similar issues!

Bought this from another retailer recently and have been using for about a week now. Loving it and the products so far. How often do you get to see instant results. I've always had a defined jawline and cheekbones, but over the years with a more sedentary lifestyle, my face has become a little fuller. This helps slim out my cheekbones and jawline, and I love it. Easy to use. Takes a short time once you get the hang of it. Using a generous amount of the gel makes all the difference. I wash it off. Rubbed it in the first time, but it didn't play well with my other skincare. I like the firming serum too.

Using this for cheek lift and more defined jaw line and it definitely immediately works! The product has last several months to use 3days/week!

Product does not sync with App. I had to return it cause it does not work unless you use the App.
Paola from San Diego
I bought this 3 month ago and I have to admit I was very esceptic I really thought it was not going to work but I needed something that would help me regained my self esteem a little because a facelift was not an option so I kept on using it regularly I did sometimes miss a day but went back to use it twice the next day I took a photo of my face the very first day and forgot about taking another one until a week ago and I didn't even notice 3 months had already past and by God I was impressed but we'll see for your self

Best product on the market

Bought this and used for a month, not worth the money. Did absolutely nothing.

Best compliment ever? Over Christmas I met up with my 5th grade English teacher for a fab lunch in Paris. We hadn't seen each other in about 30 years, and as we talked about this and that she said "but wait...how old are you?" I laughed and said "41 of course!" She looked stunned. "But...you don't have 40-year-old skin" she responded. Reader, it's gotta be all that collagen that this device produces. At that point I'd had my regular Mini for 6 months, which I had been using daily. (Eventually I switched to every other day, mainly to save on the cost of gel). Once you get your routine down you can do this anywhere, even relaxing in bed. Three months ago I upgraded to Mini+ and I love it even more! The beep is quieter so not everyone in the house needs to know when I'm "electrifying my face". If I am in a loud environment I turn on the buzzing mode so I can feel when to switch areas. I love being able to switch between treatment modes in the NuFace App. Now I just wish I could justify the expense to upgrade to Trinity+ but I'll stick with my trusty Mini+ for now. Trust me, if you are consistent, you WILL see results from this device.

The few fine lines I had around my eyes and mouth are now completely gone! The jowls I had starting at my mouth/chin area have become less visible! I also had a few large pores that have seemed to vanish

this thing stopped turning on not even 2 weeks in (yes, i've charged it). having a hard time returning due to not being able to print my order confirmation, too. i'm just bummed.

For the nuface mini to truly get the job done, it is extremely important you follow all instructions and use this device REGULARLY and as directed. Without using this device as directed and persistent with it, you will not receive the results.
MarlaJ from Corona, CA
I really had high hopes for this, especially after seeing similar products advertised all over showing such great results. I should remind myself that the women they are using in these ads are ages younger and don't look like they need it. Been using for a month and some days I actually look worse than days before. I use the App on my phone and take pictures to compare, making sure it's the same lighting in the same room. I may give it to my daughter. Just glad I got it during the 21 Days of Beauty and didn't pay full price.
Kappy from PA
I debated buying this for quite a while but am so glad I did.
Been using it for about a month and a fairly deep wrinkle i had by my chin is nearly gone. My skin also glows after using.
I haven't experienced issues others have with the device not working or not charging (fingers crossed)

I have been WANTING one of these so badddd ever since i started esthetician school over 3 years ago!! I love microcurrents and have heard great things about this exact mini toning device and i LOVE IT. You have to be consistent with it and be on top of "treatments" but it's so relaxing to use!! So grateful to have gotten this one!!
Milissa from Knoxville, TN
I have been using my NuFACE for a week now. I already see a difference in the definition of my face, and hydration of my skin! It's easy to use and has become an enjoyable part of my nightly routine.
