Smart Mask Treatment: Foreo UFO and UFO Mini Comparison Review

I’ve been running a business for the longest time. With the experiences that I have gone through, I learned that two things matter in this life. One is how you use your time makes a difference, and two, rest and rejuvenation is as important as being productive. I also decide which products to use based on these two things. This is why I’ve been an avid fan of Foreo UFO and UFO mini for a month now. And of course, I’ve also been using the UFO Activated Masks with these two devices. 

For today’s post, I wanted to share with you what Foreo UFO and UFO mini are and my experiences after testing both products.

Why I tried Foreo UFO and UFO Mini

As an advocate of having healthy and glowing skin, I usually do a weekly round of research. I check out different “unique” and new things that are in the beauty industry. Products that attract me are those that also leverage on technology, innovate and constantly listen to the ever changing needs of their customers.

This is the reason why Foreo UFO and UFO Mini (and honestly, most of their products in their site) caught my attention. 

For some reason, with the same amount of time, I just feel like we need to accomplish more things. With this, we don’t get to spend as much time with our loved ones.

Foreo UFO and UFO Mini changed my beauty routine. I normally would go through 10 steps in my skincare routine in the evening. With masks that I have to wear for at least 15-20 minutes, the entire routine takes me around 40 to 45 minutes to finish. 

Don’t get me wrong! Although I enjoy doing my routine, as a mom, I would still rather spend that time playing with my daughter. With Foreo UFO / UFO Mini and the UFO Activated  Masks, it only takes me around 90 seconds to reap the benefits of a mask.

How do you Use UFO and UFO Mini?

So UFO by FOREO Sweden is a device that you use with UFO Activated Masks.

Normally, you need to leave masks for 15-20 minutes on the skin to enjoy the benefits. With the UFO and the UFO Mini, you only need 90 seconds. Although, personally, I use one pack thrice every night! Haha! I notice that the Foreo Activated Masks have a lot of serum in one pack. The serum can take me through three 90 second sessions. I really feel so relaxed after one 90 second session that I crave for more.

The UFO by FOREO Sweden comes with an app that guides you on what to do. Once you download the app, you just need to connect it to the device and you’re ready to go. I love that having the UFO, the UFO’s app and the UFO Activated Mask makes me feel that I’m in a spa even if I’m just at home. When we feel tired and need to destress, this is your perfect companion. Plus, you get great looking skin after. 

What I love and what I’ve noticed after using UFO / UFO Mini with the UFO Activated Mask? What are the differences between the UFO and the UFO Mini?

Let’s start with the differences first between these two Foreo Products. The main difference is that the Foreo UFO has the Cryo-therapy mode that cools the skin. Gone are the days when you’d have to place the facial mask pouch inside your refrigerator and wait for it to cool before you use it. Now you can feel that instant refreshing feeling, see your skin firming up and also notice your pores getting smaller because of your UFO. The UFO Mini does not have this feature, so in terms of the activated masks, the UFO Mini can’t be used with the Matte Maniac, Shimmer Freak, Bulgarian Rose and the Green Tea Masks. 

I personally love the design of the UFO, too. Look at this gold plate! It looks so nice and encourages me to keep doing my skin care routine. In terms of price, the UFO is at Php 16,320 while the UFO mini is at Php 11,000.

Now, let me share with you the result of this skin experiment using FOREO UFO, FOREO mini and FOREO Activated Masks.

Look at this! I seriously didn’t use any filter for any of the Before or After pictures above. I’ve been trying out 4 kinds of different UFO Activated Masks with both UFO and UFO Mini for weeks now and I’ve noticed that my skin looks fresher and more rejuvenated. One of my friends even said “Ginger, you are so fair!” during an online call. To be honest with you, my problem is I have a lot of sunspots. This is probably because I loved the beach and didn’t care for sunscreen when I was younger. 

I’ve tried a lot of things and to be honest with you, this is the first time that my dark spots have lightened. I usually don’t see the results or even feel the benefits of wearing masks right after, but with UFO / UFO Mini and the UFO Activated Masks, I get to see amazing skin right after each use. This is probably because of better absorption of the serum during the Thermo-Therapy Mode (when you feel the warmth on your face). Each use also makes you feel more relaxed. With the T-Sonic Pulsations, you feel like you are getting your own facial massage at home. 

What’s my favorite UFO Activated Mask?

All of these UFO activated masks are developed in Korea.  You’ll notice that each one is super soaked in serum inside the pouch. I actually tried 4 kinds of masks.

I tried these ones: Call it a Night, Glow Addict, Youth Junkie and Make My Day. My favorite might be the Glow Addict. It’s probably my favorite though because it addressed my concern of decreasing my dark spots. My next favorite is Youth Junkie. I’m in my late 30s so I’m already concerned about wrinkles showing. This is definitely helpful in reducing those fine lines. 

I still have to get used to Make My Day though. Essentially, Make My Day can be used in the morning. That’s right! Now, you can use a mask in the morning. I think I’m just not used to it, but this variant is definitely a game changer!

How about you? Have you tried UFO, UFO Mini and the UFO Activated Masks?
