Introducing the FOREO UFO Smart Mask System

When it comes to skincare, few brands know how to present state-of-the-art solutions better than the experts at FOREO. The Swedish brand which brought us the cult favourite LUNA facial cleansing devices and ISSA toothbrushes also has an innovative FOREO UFO Smart Mask Treatment device, which promises to deliver the effects of a 20-minute sheet mask in under two minutes. Given that we already have FOREO's innovative skin care tools as a mainstay in our beauty regimen, this was one product that we couldn't wait to try out first hand. 

The nifty device has already being dubbed by beauty aficionados as “the world’s most advanced smart mask” which merges the world-renowned benefits of Korean sheets masks into a succinct but highly effective 90-second treatment, cutting down the approximate time required to garner the benefits of a topical mask treatment by a whopping 92 percent using UV-free LED Light Therapy and Cryo Therapy along with sonic pulsations to minimise application time and maximise absorption.

“A transcendent smart mask treatment, UFO combines advanced dermal technologies with exclusive Korean mask formulas for a decadent facial treatment in seconds. Experience the beauty of innovation, and transform your complexion with UFO.”

How It Works

The smart mask system consists for two main parts: the UFO device itself and a range of mini sheet masks containing advanced Korean formulas that cater to a full range of dermal concerns. With 8 different formulas available, the user can work to customise their facial treatment to suit their skincare needs.

Each FOREO formula is carefully crafted to avoid any trace of harmful parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, disodium EDTA, and mineral oil toxins. Instead, each mask is delicately infused with the highest-quality plant and fruit extracts, concentrated botanical oils and natural flower water, all of which accumulates into an organic, ethical blend of mooisturizing actice ingredients to leave your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvinated, no matter which of the eight masks you're using.

The Review

Upon receiving the FOREO UFO, I was immediately drawn to its attractive design which features a gold mesh surface surrounded by a pastel coloured ring. It felt luxe, and came with a dedicated stand, making it easy to stash on my bathroom counter. Having sensitive, combination skin, I opted for the “Make My Day” mask which is a hydrating, anti-polluting day mask infused with rejuvenating Hyaluronic Acid and red algae and the “Call It A Night” night time mask which contains nourishing formula of ginseng and olive oil. I wasn’t sure of what to expect but boy was I in for a treat.

I put in my night mask sheet, pressed a button and the UFO came to life. I swept the UFO across my skin in gliding movements as it worked its magic. Slight pulsations, gentle heating, then cooling – all with different coloured LED lights all in a span of 90 seconds. And just like that we were done. I rinsed the waterproof device with water, pat the remainder of the mask into my skin, moisturised as normal and went to bed.

I didn’t think anything would have happened in just one application but I was surprised to find my skin feeling remarkably soft and supple the following morning. Excited, I incorporated the morning mask into my morning routine and then followed up with another night mask that evening to wake up to visibly smoother, refined and softer skin. My makeup glided on like butter and even my husband noticed the difference in my complexion. I would never have thought that 90-seconds would ever suffice to transform my skin but FOREO’s UFO Smart Mask System has exceeded expectations.

The Verdict

An absolute must-have for any modern woman if you ask me, because when we are all pressed for time, FOREO has just made skin treatments something so simple that anyone can incorporate them into even the busiest of schedules.
