Zoe: Personal Anti-Aging Sonic Device

Sonic devices have been around for some time, but those who envy the freshly scrubbed look of Nordic beauties should definitely try out Zoe made by Qyksonic. The Zoe with its minimalist petal-shaped design fits ergonomically into your palm. Made of hypoallergenic, medical-grade silicone that is resistant to germs, you get quite a jolt when turning on the device for the first time. For such a small device, it packs a lot of power which can be turned up or down to suit your preferences. If you are accustomed to using facial brushes with bristles that can stiffen over time, you can definitely tell that facial care with Zoe will be a more gentle and relaxing experience.

Those who live a fast-paced life but are uncompromising about personal wellness will love the simple design, ease of use, battery life, and the smooth, satiny feel of the skin even just after one use.

“Cleanses, massages, and Applies – zoe gives you the glow”

The Zoe has basically 3 functions using the 3 areas of the Zoe:

The front (with the label) has softer, shorter bristles and rounded tips. The gadget is applied using circular motions on skin that has been prepped with cleanser. Unlike when using your own fingers, you won’t keep on rubbing (and over-sloughing) to remove exfoliated skin and deep-down dirt. The gentle pressure from the silicone bristles bring up dirt easily to the surface and allows the cleansing effects to go deeper breaking-up the “glue” between old and dying surface cells. There are no hard-to-reach areas as Zoe’s tip can reach the nook and crannies around the nose and eyes. The strength and speed of the sonic pulses can be increased or decrease by pressing on the (+) and (-) points on either side of the On/Off button. There are 15 intensities to customize your experience. Upon rinsing, skin feels clean, smooth, and supple without feeling taut. Best of all, unlike the fine bristles of other sonic brushes that become the depository of germs and molds, even when well-maintained, the Zoe does not spread germs and does not create abrasions that can get infected.

For facial rejuvenation, the back of the Zoe with it’s longer bristles is used. Gentle outward and upward motions stimulate pressure points. Pretty much like acupressure, this allows the ‘chi’ or energy to circulate. In Western medicine, this means that circulation of blood and lymph flow is increased. Similar to spa specials, skin is rejuvenated by better nourishment from within, by way of the oxygen and nutrients that the blood cells carry to the skin’s outer layer. By opening up pores, it allows anti-aging ingredients of moisturizers and serums to get to the cells so products are absorbed better leaving skin radiant, rosy and better-hydrated. Even eyebags appear diminished and jawlines less saggy!

The tip of the Zoe works great for applying cosmeceuticals because it does not breed germs, unlike fingers that can contaminate pots of creams. Freshly rinsed, the tip can be used to apply these rich emollients while keeping them fresh for a longer time. With prices what they are for high-end products, it certainly makes sense and cents to prolong your beauty product’s shelf-life by not unduly adulterating with skin-borne germs.

The Zoe is fast-charging and can be used up to 300 times on a single full charge. Almost too good to be true! This makes it extremely portable to carry around for all-day freshness wherever you are. However, the ultimate cool is that there is are no brush heads to change and none to clean. Simply rinse and it’s good to go. However, remember that good skin doesn’t begin and end with the face. So go ahead and use it on your neck and on patches where you have dry or peeling skin.

$149 for almost an infinite period of spa-like care and the convenience of your mother’s soap-and-water routine is so perfect-suited to today’s busy lifestyle (even if you’ve had Botox and Fillers)!


FOREO’s UFO Smart Mask: Celeb-Worthy Spa Treatment in 90 Seconds

Okay, smart wearables have been around for years but FOREO’s UFO-like gadget takes this to a new level by delivering celebrity spa facials in a snap. Looking like a hand-held robot, UFO actually means “Ur Future Obsession” and for those who have wanting professional salon facials but lack the time or the money to indulge, this seems like a dream come true. Quite perfect for this generation obsessed with looking good and staying youthful – something that pushed facial masks, “last year’s biggest beauty trend” to unprecedented popularity in 2017. FOREO can potentially make messy overnight masks a thing of the past, but does it deliver on its promise of smoother, energized, well-nourished skin that is sloughed off of debris and infused with rejuvenating nutrients?

FOREO’s UFO launched its Kickstarter with a modest goal of $20,000. Now, barely a month to its estimated delivery it had garnered the support of 9,474 backers raising a total of $1,572,093! Paul Peros, FOREO CEO claims that it took them four years to innovate on a product that had existed since Cleopatra’s time. Keeping skin soft, smooth, radiant and supple with a nightly regimen takes anywhere from 20 minutes upward. FOREO’s UFO slashes that down to 90 seconds of intensive treatment that will leave the skin more flawless. According to the site, all it takes are 4 easy steps:

    1. remove the transparent outer ring
    2. secure Foreo’s single-use mask in place
    3. press to activate UFO and select treatment and
    4. move around gently on your face to enjoy a spa-level facial.
The Smart Technology Behind the UFO

The UFO is all about the 360° Smart Mask Treatment that is backed by science: LED Light Technology and Hyper-infusion Technology. Hyper-infusion technology involves heating, cooling, and T-sonic pulsations to deliver professional (non-messy) spa treatment wherever you are. It is also common knowledge that Korean cosmeceuticals are the most sought-after beauty products these last few years because of proven results and refined formulation based on nature’s best essences and enzymes. FOREO leverages on their exclusive Korean mask formulas that are delivered through app-controlled treatment routines.

This smartphone-controlled device delivers essential ingredients in FOREO’s exclusive premium Korean mask formulas. Heating opens up the pores in the skin, enhancing absorption of state-of-the-art ingredients. Cooling, on the other hand, closes the pores, lifts, and firms the skin. The T-sonic pulsations deliver the nutrients even deeper into the skin for better absorption. The three different LED lights deliver different wavelengths making it not just a mask but a photofacial as well:

  • Blue Light – promotes circulation and vascularization for clearer skin; helps kill acen-causing bacteria;
  • Green Light – evens out and brightens complexion;
  • Red – stimulates collagen; anti-aging and helps diminish fine lines.

The FOREO app gives you control of settings to customize the experience with routines suitable for your skin type and condition. The total effect? Maximum benefits customized to your skin’s needs infused simply and without wasting expensive products.

The product generated a lot of interest during the recent CES event (organized by the Consumer Technology Association) and in fact, bagged Gadgetmatch’s best of CES 2018. Smart-looking, compact, rechargeable, six types of customizable therapy, and easily ordered consumable made it an instant favorite. Foolproof control of the app from your smartphone makes skincare worry-free. Cleopatra’s milk and roses routine has finally met its match.

“The FOREO UFO smart mask is changing the beauty world, one face at a time. Unmask radiant skin in only 90 seconds.”
