Have you tried any of Foreo’s products? I’m obsessed. I religiously use the UFO mask tool from the range, so when I heard about the new BEAR microcurrent device, I was very excited to try it.
I first got into facial massage a few years ago, after speaking with a skincare expert about its anti-aging benefits. Up until now, I’ve been doing the majority of my facial massage by hand. This, however, takes the guesswork and manual work out of facial massage methods and does it all for you.
The BEAR device is the world’s first FDA-cleared medical-grade microcurrent device with an anti-shock system. Basically, it effectively and safely trains and tones the facial and neck muscles (with the same force and skill as a skincare professional). The results? Improved facial contours, an instant glow and brighter, bouncier skin.
The thing that really wows me about this device, however, is that it is so powerful. I instantly see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after just 2 minutes of use. This is pretty much unheard of in the skincare world unless you are having a treatment in a professional spa or with a facialist.
BEAR uses a combination of microcurrent technology and T-Sonic pulsations. They both go hand in hand to lift, tone and diminish puffiness. The microcurrents also channel energy into the skin that conditions the deepest layers of your skin to appear firm, lifted and youthful. The device also helps to relieve any facial tensions – the T-Sonic pulsations relax any tense muscles and improve blood flow. This, in turn, helps with enhancing product absorption of anything products applied afterwards.
Possibly the most impressive part of this device is the anti-shock system. This clever system scans and measures the skin’s resistance to the current being delivered by the device. And then automatically adjusts its intensity accordingly. Therefore, if your skin is super sensitive to the microcurrents, it’ll operate at an intensity that’s specifically appropriate for your skin. Pretty much like a bespoke facial in a device!
How to use Foreo BEAR
Firstly, the skin should be totally clean and bare before using this device. The first thing that should be applied, which works as a conductive layer and kind of lubricant that helps the device glide, is the Foreo Serum (SERUM SERUM SERUM). This product is a must-have if you’re going to see real results from this. Also, it’s also a lovely standalone serum, too. When using it with the device, be sure to be generous with the amount you apply (you’ll need a thick layer over all of your skin).
The Foreo BEAR has a three-minute cycle, which is the optimum amount of time to cover the entire face. There is an option to extend this if you need more time. Once the device is switched on, you should find a light that indicates which intensity level the device is operating at (levels 1 to 5 – 5 being the highest intensity).
Then, once I’m ready to perform the massage, I start from my chin, up along my jawline towards my ear. I’ll then do the same around my cheekbone area. And then use upward motions when it’s time to get to work on my face and neck. I’ll always use medium pressure, as I want the device to work its magic, but also know that it’ll ease up on my skin if it becomes too much for it to handle. I do this once a day to maintain amazing results. So far, I’m loving it!
