Easy to use, relaxing skin therapy
This is an excellent product. The app interface has been well thought out and is super simple to set up and use, although the Bluetooth range isn't massive so keep your phone close by. The options for cooling and heating are easily controlled, as well as multiple light colour choices. Red light has been shown to improve collagen so do some research and investigate what light therapy is appropriate for your needs. I can't say for certain whether it improves penetration of the mask components but the sonic vibrations are relaxing and I noticed that it removed dirt from my skin very well!
Beautiful but broken app
This is an amazing product and it has a stunning design. I loved looking at it, holding it in my hand and watching the light colours change, sensing the temperature according to your settings and feeling the vibrations. It's an impressive household product but there's a reason I rated it 3 stars.
What FOREO sells is devices like the UFO 2 that pulse and emit different lights and temperatures. They also sell a range of small circular masks that are popped into the devices so that your skin absorbs all the mask goodness with the best possible physical treatment their devices can deliver. Ideally, when using the device, you would connect the UFO to your phone FOREO app on your phone, pop in the mask on the UFO, scan the mask's barcode on the FOREO app and the UFO would recognise the mask and change the light/temperature/pressure of the vibrations to whatever the mask dictates.
In my case, I'm using a Samsung S10e and downloaded the latest version of the FOREO app. After registering the product and successfully connecting the UFO 2 via bluetooth, I was excited to say the least to use the first mask. Unfortunately, every time I scanned the mask, a error message saying 'You need a UFO or UFO 2 to use this mask.' Even though a UFO 2 was exactly what I was using and had registered. Due to this, I was only able to use the UFO 2 by manually changing the settings and it was not how the FOREO should have been used.
Despite the wide range of functions you can control on the UFO, I also found the act of popping a small gooey mask onto the UFO quite fiddly and messy. If the app synchronisation worked perfectly, I would be more prone to using it but due to the app errors, I found myself struggling to enjoy this product.
*PS. I also did contact FOREO regarding the error message but their suggestions to uninstall and reinstall got me nowhere.
Replying to Semi Y.Dear Semi, we are so sorry to hear that your FOREO app wasn’t working properly and we apologise for this. We hope the app issues by now are resolved and you are enjoying the UFO 2! If there are any questions please reach out to FOREO Oceania (@foreo_aus) via Instagram as we are usually online 7 days a week. We hope this will help and that you will enjoy our UFO 2 in the future. Lots of love, FOREO Oceania.
Didn't meet expectations..
I was so so excited to try this product- I have wanted to try the cleansing version of the Foreo for so long as I have heard really great things! Unfortunately I just couldn't get excited by the UFO.. my sensitive skin didn't like the actual mask, and you need to use Foreo masks to be compatible with the device. Even when I did use it, I felt like it would still be easier to use a regular 10 minute sheet mask than go through the effort, plus I'm not sure I can justify the expensive price tag.. It hasn't put me off trying other Foreo devices, but I will stick to the ones that let me use my regular cleansers etc.
Replying to Stephanie M.Hi Stephanie, we are sorry to hear that the UFO 2 didn’t meet your expectations, we have quite a few different types of masks that you skin might like. Have a look at foreo.com for more options that are more targeted to sensitive skin. We hope you will love our LUNA range for the cleansing devices! Lots of love, FOREO Oceania.
Facial at Home!
I was so excited to be chosen for this trial as beauty devices have always interested me, but the high price point had kept me from taking the plunge. This trial couldn’t have come at a better time as my local beauty salon has been shut down and I have not been able to get my usual monthly facials. This device really is like a facial in that it is a relaxing self-care ritual. For such a small device it packs a punch, my favourite setting is the warming one and I notice an improvement in hydration with all of the different sheet masks I have tried on the UFO. The device is marketed as a 90 second time saving protocol, but I enjoyed the feeling so much I would just restart it over and over until my mask had run out of serum. Even then, I could squeeze more serum out of the packet which was generously saturated in product or I could add a little of my own serum to prolong the experience. I use the device once a week at night but will also use it before a big event or special occasion as I did find it made my skin extra glowy. It’s certainly an investment but one that I would absolutely recommend. I loved using the Foreo UFO 2 and will continue to purchase the sheet masks and use the device moving forward.
I was thrilled to trial this UFO 2 after hearing great things about the first one.
Having never used a device like this before, it took me a few goes to get used to it but having said that, it was really easy and straight forward once I figured out what I was doing.
I received the call it a night revitalising masks which I put on the UFO and activated the call it a night function.
I love how quick and convenient the treatment is and my skin has never felt so soft and revitalised.
Given the price point of the UFO itself, I wish the mask packets came with more actual masks as 7 isn’t really enough. I wish there was a gel or similar product that would last longer.
I will definitely be purchasing more masks and can’t wait to see the results of long term results.
Replying to Nas L.Hi Nas, we love that you love how quick the UFO 2 is and that your skin is feeling soft and revitalised. We appreciate your feedback on the number of mask sheets that are in the packet, we will give this feedback to our global team. Lots of love, FOREO Oceania.
I really enjoyed using the UFO product, it was easy to set up and clean. I usually don't do masks due to the time it takes, so it barely gets used, however, this is just so convenient. The night mask was beautiful and super hydrating. I'm looking forward to getting more familiar with the other functions available by using the app as well as different masks.
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who is into their skincare and love products such as this.
This product is so easy to set up and use! I was able to use both the day mask and the night mask and both had fantastic results. My skin felt so hydrated and soft after using the masks! It was definitely quicker and less messy than a sheet mask. Each of the masks also come with a lot of extra serum so I was able to save that to use another day.
The device is also great for applying other serums or products onto my skin and massaging them in.
I think the price is quite steep for what the product does though and the only thing I didn't love is that the shape meant I couldn't easily get the mask in hard to reach places such as around my nose or under my eyes.
A new staple product in my skincare routine
The Foreo UFO 2 is a small device on which you place one of Foreo's face masks. It uses heat/cold, vibrations and LED therapy to give your skin a full 90 second facial.
Using the device is a lovely experience and my skin always felt hydrated and refreshed after use.
Depending on the mask used (I used 'Call it a Night' and 'Make my Day') the treatment will be different. You scan the barcode on the mask with the app and it with activate the pre-programmed treatment settings which allow each mask to perform the best. You can manually change these settings as well; if you prefer a cooling mask over the heat setting, or if you want different light colour therapy.
I love that the treatment is only 90 seconds. It is a wonderfully quick, but effective facial in the mornings or evenings; leaving my skin hydrated and glowing. If I use the night mask, my skin is noticeably brighter in the morning.
You get a large amount of serum in each mask; so much that I was able to do the treatment a second time for each packet. With a large variety of masks, which I definitely want to try, there is something for every situation; including masks specifically for dry or oily skin needs. The masks themselves are reasonable priced with the ones I used sitting at $15AUD for 7 masks. Considering I got two used per sachet, this is definitely worth the price. The more specialist mask range goes up to $26AUD for 6.
The device may take some trial and error in the beginning. I did initially have some issues connecting the device to the app. However, once I went through the tutorial and got used to the process, it was very smooth going during future uses.
This is a great product which I will continue to use and hopefully see benefits from. Definitely a great device which will now be a staple in my skincare routine.
A real facial at home
Wow what can I say this product is something special. Being in lockdown now this little product came at the right time with being able to get an at home facial for my skin. The device is easy to setup and I love how there are a lot of different masks to suit anyone with different purposes. The device is small in size but works wonders with hot and cooling settings based on which mask you use. I love the call it a night mask right before bed. It’s so soothing and the next morning my face is so glowing and feels like baby skin. The duration is about 90 seconds on the skin which really is enough time for you to glide through all parts of your face. I love this concept and I love that you can use this everyday without causing any damage to your skin
Smart Mask Treatment
I really enjoyed trying this little device, you place the sheet mask on and away you go! You move it around your face in small circular motions feeling a slow-building warmth and pulsations which made my skin feel warm and glowy. There are a wide range of LED colours depending on your skin concerns, it also combines cryo-therapy and thermo-therapy and works great when connected to the app for an in home relaxing spa experience. After 90 seconds of buzzing around my face the serum from the sheet mask had completely absorbed into my skin and i was left feeling plump, glossy, and slightly pink (in a good way). When using in the morning with the "make my day" mask cryo-therapy helps with depuffing and awakening the skin. Cant wait to try the other face masks with this device-Im into it!
Great device with hefty price tag
At first the price tag of this product leaves you a bit gobsmacked - how much?! But even after the first use you get a little hooked. I’ve only used the Call it a Night mask but can testify that even after the first use you get a little addicted to the gadget in the quest for clear, smooth and glowing skin. Each FOREO mask treatment (available for purchase separately) has enough liquid to run about three 90 second treatments over your face should you desire - an app takes you step by step through the treatment offering different pulsations, LED light colours and temperatures. Even after the first use my pores felt clear, my skin smooth and glowing. Looking after two young kids in the middle of a global pandemic had me looking tired and run down, but a few treatments with the UFO made me feel younger and more alive. The catch is the product is designed only to be used with the FOREO UFO masks. Each time you operate the app you need to scan the mask barcode on the packet to ensure you are using the device with a genuine FOREO mask. The masks are small circular sheets/discs that connect on to the device (think of the texture of a sheet mask). I would love this product so much more if I could use it to apply my own choice of serums - how amazing would that be? As it is though I think it’s an amazing product if you are lucky enough to have the purchase within your budget. I’m keen to try out the other mask treatments and to have a selection on hand. Using this product has made me want to look into the other items of FOREOs range which is a testament to the quality of the product. All in all, a good product albeit with a hefty price tag, but I feel like the results are equal to an average facial so you are going to get much more bang for your buck with this baby. I have sensitive skin and has no adverse reactions to the UFO device or the mask treatment. No break outs either even with continued use. I’d be curious to check out the blue LED light on any acne that comes up to see if it helps heal it faster too, the app has the ability to toggle with the settings to test out the device, or a pre programmed day or night 90 second treatment routine. I’ll continue to use this device even after my trial.
Almost instantly heats up!
The Foreo UFO 2 seems like a very futuristic product to me. It heats up within seconds of being turned up its unbelievable. The packaging it comes in is sturdy and the device itself feels luxurious to the touch.
The device needs to be connected to the app on your phone via Bluetooth to operate (I wish it was able to just turn on via the device!). On the app you can then chose which setting you would like to use. There are 8 light settings you can chose from and my preferred one do far is the red light therapy aimed at stimulating the production of collagen. Whilst I can't say with certainty that the collagen levels of my skin has improved significantly with use after a month, I can say the mask has hydrated plumped up my skin after use.
When using the UFO 2, you will need to purchase the UFO masks that attach on to the device. The masks are very generous with the serum per package which is great and whilst the default setting is a 90 second mask, there is an option to extend for another 90 seconds and so on and the mask will still have enough essence to keep going. The only downside I find in the mask is it can add up being quite pricey and I haven't been able to find a mask with active ingredients like vitamin A etc which J would love to use on my skin!
Salon quality experience
I enjoyed using the device for last min skin prep especially after a night out the best morning it's good to just have this device over my face for 90 seconds instead of the full 20mins. The device scans the barcode of each mask to provide the best 90seconds treatment designed for the mask and you can also use the botton to reactivate the device to provide you another 90seconds of treatment. I enjoy the hot/cold treatment as well as the LED light therapy.
I gave it a 4 star because I enjoy everything except I have to buy the mask and it comes in a packet of 7 for different mask. Price was also the reason it got 4 star.
PROS: small and compact, time efficient, good for last min skin prep
CONS: have to scan each mask everytime, mask only avaliable at certain stores (full range on fereo website)
I wanted to LOVE this
I really wanted to LOVE this. I loved the results, but the device itself was a bit of a pain in the butt!
I couldn't use any of the functions on the device, and the customer service to help with this was pretty rubbish. So I used the same function on every mask. I could rarely get the cooling feature to work.
That being said, even the results of the masks was amazing. My skin has never felt so smooth and my make up applied beautifully over my skin after using it! I will continue to fiddle with it, and it is part of my daily routine, however i personally wouldn't purchase this particular device!
Replying to Lauren S.Dear Lauren, thanks so much for your feedback. The Call It A Night masks are designed to only work with the Thermo-Therapy (the warming function), that would be why you weren’t able to use the cooling function. Our Shimmer Freak and Matte Maniac masks are just a few of our mask range that work with the cooling function. We hope you will continue to use the UFO 2 and try out the other masks! If there are any questions please reach out to FOREO Oceania (@foreo_aus) via Instagram as we are usually online 7 days a week. Lots of love, FOREO Oceania.
Amazing little gem
It was really easy to set up and use and clean. Each mask has a different sequence with the UFO, for the evening one it had lovely warm red light and vibrations and the morning mask had green light. I love how it’s so customised to get the most out of the mask you use.
Each mask comes with a lot of serum so I end up doing 2 rounds with the device. It’s so relaxing and something I look forward to using.
After I use the evening one I wake up with a really nice glowy hydrated complexion and I’m obsessed.
I will continue to use and rave about this little gem.
