Is it a novelty or innovation? Or somewhere between both? I had to consistently use FOREO UFO every single day, for a month, before writing a review. Now, this wasn’t new territory because I already owned a FOREO UFO Mini for 2 years now. The only difference between the 2 is the Mini is more compact, and the bigger size has a Cryo-therapy mode which gives off a cooling sensation.
Are you guys familiar with this innovative skincare device? Curious? Then this post is for you. I’ll share with you my honest, no-holds back review and then some.
What does FOREO UFO do?
Imagine if you could own the exact same beauty-tech treatments and products seen in celebrity spas. And use them at home to achieve the same dazzling glow, clear skin, fresh complexion, and conquer-the-world feeling you get after visiting a premier beauty salon or world-class spa.
With UFO, you can.
And you’ll achieve it all from the comfort of your very own living room.
- LED THERAPY
- T-SONIC PULSATIONS
UFO’s Hyper-Infusion Technology uses your skin’s natural reactions to heat and cold as well as signature T-Sonic pulsations to ensure you get the most out of every mask treatment.
A gentle heat relaxes, soothes and revitalizes mind and body. As UFO gradually warms in Thermo-Therapy mode, it infuses active mask ingredients into the skin, making them more effective in less time.
Exclusively developed for the flagship UFO model, Cryo-Therapy mode is an effortless way to diminish the appearance of pores and reduce puffiness. No need to stash skincare in the freezer – with the simple touch of a button, UFO instantly cools to refresh and invigorate the skin.
Savor every moment of a soothing facial massage, while this patented technology boosts absorption of active mask ingredients and leaves you with radiant, healthy-looking skin.
UFO puts the power of LED light therapy in your hands, with 3 targeted photofacials in one at-home device. Enjoy a painless, UV-free phototherapy treatment as red, green and blue LED light wavelengths effortlessly rejuvenate your skin.

How to use the FOREO UFO?
1. Getting Started
Download the FOREO app and follow the instructions to pair your UFO device. In the app, scan the mask barcode and the corresponding treatment will automatically sync to your UFO device and you are ready to start your treatment directly from the app.
2. Prep for Use
Remove the attachment ring from UFO, and remove UFO Activated Mask from the sachet. Secure mask on the device by clipping the attachment ring back into place, with the FOREO logo facing up.
Gently glide UFO across clean, dry skin and massage the formula in using circular motions until the device turns off, indicating the end of your treatment. Dispose of the mask and rinse UFO under running water.
4. Finishing Touch
Use your fingers to gently pat any remaining essence into your skin, until it is fully absorbed. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.
Now the FOREO UFO device comes in 3 colors: mint pearl pink, and fuchsia. I chose fuchsia aka hot pink. Inside the package is a manual, a stand, and a charging cord.
I wish it came with the usual Type-B or Type-C USB connector instead, so it’s compatible with the majority of the cords we have here. In case we break or lose it, it’s easier to replace it.
Charging time is 1 hour and it’s good for around 4-5 uses.
Cleaning is a breeze! I just run it over water, or soap a bit then rinse and it’s ready to go. Make sure you clean after every use and dry to avoid bacterial growth.
Being on lockdown for several months now, using the FOREO UFO every night as part of my daily routine has helped a lot in relaxing my mind, and lessening my anxiety. Sort of like a temporary “escape” from the world’s problems. Hey, nothing is permanent in this world so might as well feel positively good for a few moments.
My skin? Never looked better. Even my mom notices it’s plumper, more radiant, and looks smoother after each use. Not to mention I rarely get any breakouts anymore (a miracle!). It’s basically a DIY Facial you can do in the comfort of your own homes. Which is great because of our situation now, it’s risky to go out just go visit your spa/facial.
If you have the extra $$$ to spend, I highly recommend this. Not only as a skincare device but also as a #selfcare device. Personally, it does wonders for my sanity. The warm t-sonic pulsations are very comforting.
Is it Worth it?
Can you use it without the Mask?
I tried to, but it felt too hot for my skin. A mask is required!
Can I use other masks with the FOREO UFO?
Of course! But make sure you keep the barcodes of the original FOREO UFO Masks at hand (or take a photo) so that you can run the app with other masks. My friend suggested that I can “cut” to a smaller round shape. But I thought it’s a waste. So what I do is just put the whole large chunk directly then seal. Activate the device as usual.
If you still feel wasteful, you can use the leftover serum on other parts of your body.
Can you use it everyday?
What is the difference between FOREO UFO vs UFO Mini?
Besides being bigger, FOREO UFO has the CRYO-THERAPY function that gives off a cooling sensation. Oh, and the price too LOL.
