If you’ve stumbled upon my page looking for Sephora Spring Sale Recommendations, then I am here to help! If you’re like me, these past two years I spent next to nothing on makeup products. However, that money in turn was spent on skincare and devices to keep up spa services while there were lockdowns and closures. So no I can’t say I was on a “no-buy”. I am however excited to fall in love with makeup again and below are my recos!
Meet the newest addition to my skincare regime, the NuFace Facial Toning device. I know it has been around for quite some time now. However, I had to give it a long thought on whether my daily routine needed another step.
Usage is simple but besides the device itself you also need a NuFace gel primer for the device to glide over.
I’ve only recently started using the NuFace Facial Toning Device and will report back on the visible effects once they become apparent. My goal is to achieve the appearance of a smoother forehead and tighten the jawline.
I’ve used several manual facial tightening tools and lifting devices in the past. My experience remains the same, the results last as long as you keep up with the uses. My search remained open solely to find a device whose treatment time was shorter.
NuFace uses “gentle microcurrent technology to stimulate muscles and tighten skin, giving a lifted effect to the brows, eyes, jawline, cheeks, and neck.”
NuFace’s instructions state to: glide the device three times on each side of the treatment areas, ie. cheek, neck, forehead. Each swipe is merely a few seconds long. An automated beep will also notify you when it’s over.
So far, I am thoroughly appreciating the simple usage of this non-invasive device, the short yet effective treatment times and its compact size.
NuFace is available online and in-store at Sephora.
