Hello, Darlings! Today I’m sharing with you my review of the FOREO UFO 2! This product was gifted to me by FOREO but this post is not sponsored. This is my first time using the UFO so I’m very excited! Honestly I don’t use sheet masks very often as I find them expensive and I feel like I’m not getting the most of them. But I do always love a good sheet mask when I’m traveling on a plane! I’m looking forward to using the UFO 2 to incorporate more face masks into my skincare routine.

FOREO Face Masks

You can take this fun quiz from FOREO to learn which face mask bundle is right for you then check this out! After taking this quiz I was recommended to check out The Ultimate Edition Smart Mask Set!

Call it a Night and Make My Day are $9.99 and come with 7 masks in the set. The other ones are $19.99 and come with 6 masks. If it says (A) this means Advanced Collection. If it says (F) this is the Farm to Face Collection.

Can you use FOREO UFO without a mask?

It is not recommended by FOREO to use the UFO device without a mask. And I also personally don’t recommend using it without a mask. I used the thermotherapy on my neck without a mask once (I had neck pain) and it got very hot! However I have seen FOREO talk about some UFO hacks on their socials where people don’t seem to be using a mask and are using the device on its own. Just be extremely cautious if you do choose to go this route.

How Often Can You Use It

FOREO says you can use the UFO twice a day (morning and night). However, I personally would not do that just because of the price.

Let’s say I were to use my UFO twice a day daily assuming I use Glow Addict and Shimmer Freak and purchase the 12 pack of both of these which costs $131.99 each and this includes savings otherwise it would be $239.88 each. I would have to buy about 5 of these 12 packs to last me an entire year. This would equate to spending over a $1000 on face masks a year! Now there’s nothing wrong in spending this much money on face masks. Besides you will have great skin down the road! 😍 So if you have enough money to invest in skin then go ahead, But I’m not even a VIB or Rouge at Sephora so there’s no way I can invest that much in my skin on a regular basis 😂

For me the UFO would be something I use once a week or maybe once in a while. The face masks themselves when you break down the unit cost actually aren’t that expensive. It’s just when you look at the idea of face masking everyday it becomes expensive.

The LED Benefits of UFO 2

The information below I got from FOREO’s stories on Instagram.

  • Purple- Eliminates toxins and accelerated healing
  • Yellow- Softens rosacea and combats swelling
  • Cyan- Anti-inflammatory and calms swelling
  • Orange- Eases sun damage and revitalizes
  • Red- Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blue- Fights acne causing bacteria
  • Green- Targets dark spots and discoloration
  • White- Rejuvenates and tightens

Is the FOREO UFO 2 worth it?

FOREO ProductsPrice in USD
UFO 2$279
UFO 2 Mini$179
UFO$199
UFO Mini$99

There is a price difference of $80 for both the full size and the mini when upgrading from the first version of the UFO to the more recent second version. Now although I haven’t used the first version of the UFO I do think the price difference is acceptable because they have a lot of new light features in the new one.

If you’re picking UFO 2 vs UFO Mini 2 the price difference is $100. You will be missing out on Cryo-Therapy and some selective face masks. Cryo-Therapy is basically the exposure to cold temperatures. If that’s not something you’re into and feel you can live without the masks that are not compatible with the Mini then you might as well go with the Mini.

So the UFO can only work with the FOREO brand masks which is kind of a downside but they offer so many options that it’s easy to find a mask that you would like. Luckily these masks are not very expensive. Even if you pick the more expensive ones that are $19.99 for six of them you’re getting one mask at the cost of $3.33. Which is about the same price as a good drugstore sheet mask.

I do like how the mask grips onto the UFO so I don’t have to worry about the face mask falling off or tearing apart. In addition the added light benefits with the mask makes the facial treatment process so much more valuable. However, this is an expensive product and you do have to purchase face masks for it which is a recurring cost. FOREO products are expensive but this one costs even more than the Luna 3 and Iris.

How to Use FOREO UFO 2

I show you how to use the UFO 2 in this video I made as well as my FOREO UFO 2 review. Side note: I did not wash my face after this but I did wash my face before using the device. The formula tends to absorb into the skin pretty quickly so there’s no need to wash it off. If you want you can wipe off the excess with cotton.

How to use FOREO UFO 2 without app?

Press Once = Activation of Make My Day Mask

Press Twice = Activation of Call it a Night Mask

Press #of Times to Activate Mask = (Any mask that is not Make my Day or Call it a Night will have a special location on the UFO circle in the app. Memorize the position and use the number of that position to press the device that many times to activate the mask. [Honestly just use the app!]

Press Button = Turn on the UFO 2 device

Press and Hold for 3 seconds = Turns UFO 2 off

Overall review of FOREO UFO 2

Pros

  • High-end technology delivers effective results
  • Makes skincare fun! Relaxing!
  • Huge time saver! Face mask in 1.5 minutes versus 15-20 mins
  • The unit cost of face masks is affordable

Cons

  • No drawstring bag
  • Can only use FOREO branded masks
  • Wastage of product in the mask sachet (typical for any sheet mask)

Where to buy FOREO UFO 2?

Not sure why but this product isn’t being sold at Sephora yet. You can buy the device at Macy’s, Harrods, and FOREO. If you are a student and buy it through FOREO there usually is a student discount.

In conclusion, generally I believe FOREO products are like an investment so every penny is worth it but this one is a recurring investment so it’s a little different. I would recommend this product to people who are serious about their skincare game and don’t mind purchasing masks regularly. Personally for me I think this is something I would use perhaps once a week for like a spa treatment but not something I would use regularly. I think the best way to go about this product is to stock up some masks when they go on sale or if you have a coupon at Sephora. FOREO also sells bundles of masks so you can save in that way too.
