FOREO BEAR Smart Microcurrent Facial Toning Device Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

FOREO BEAR Smart Microcurrent Facial Toning Device is an easy to use ergonomic facial toning device that is as effective as it is fun to use. It comes in two sizes, the full size BEAR ($299.00) and the BEAR Mini ($199.00), and I think that the FOREO BEAR is the perfect size for regular use. The FOREO has more settings and features than the Mini, but if you travel a lot and want to save some money, the the Mini might be the best choice for you.

Microcurrent devices are heralded for their ability to tone, firm and lift aging skin and muscles. They also stimulate the muscles, hence this is why you often hear people state that they are like a visit to the gym for the face. However, these types of devices do not offer permanent results, therefore in order to maintain the effects one must continue to use the device.

The FOREO BEAR transmits a microcurrent directly to the skin, through a conducting gel, or the FOREO Serum Serum Serum, and microcurrent devices should never be used on bare skin. Furthermore, one should always use a conducting gel or serum specifically made for this purpose. Often touted as an at-home face lift, microcurrent devices make the skin look and feel refreshed, rejuvenated and more youthful. FOREO BEAR has T-Sonic Pulses that help to improve circulation, which in turn helps to eliminate toxins. After use skin looks smoother, softer, lifted, luminous and more youthful.

FOREO BEAR can be used once a day (AM or PM), but I only use it a couple of times a week for a few minutes. I do not have many fine lines, but the few that I do have become far less visible when I use this device. I only use it on my face, and avoid using it on my neck, but my skin looks smoother, my fine lines are visibly diminished and my skin is lightly plumped and decidedly radiant. Overall, this is one seriously effective device!

When you first unpack your FOREO BEAR, you will need to download the FOREO App on your phone to register and unlock your device, and then you will need to charge it. It is very easy to do, and registering only takes a few minutes. Additionally, you activate your 2 year warranty when you register your device.

If you have any health conditions, and are wondering whether or not a device of this sort is safe for you, then you should check with your doctor before making this purchase.

According to FOREO,

Offering the same microcurrent facial treatments found at celebrity spas, BEAR helps bring out your inner esthetician so you can enjoy a full, professional spa day in the comfort of your own home.

Smart Microcurrent Facial Toning: With a variety of microcurrent facial workouts, BEAR is your pocket-sized personal trainer. Glide the microcurrent spheres over your skin to build collagen, repair elastin & tighten your face via electrical currents that mimic your body’s own natural processes.

T-Sonic™ Pulsations: Our patented T-Sonic™ pulsations extend deep into your pores to increase circulation, eliminate toxins & ease facial tension, resulting in smoother, softer, glowier skin.

Anti-ShockSystem™BEAR features the patented Anti-Shock System™ - making it the world’s safest microcurrent device. Advanced sensors measure your skin’s resistance to electricity then automatically adjust the intensity to eliminate any chance of shock.

Smart Swedish Design: BEAR’s ergonomic shape perfectly fits all facial curves & contours. Fashioned from ultra-hygienic silicone, BEAR & BEAR mini promise deep, spa-level treatments as well as up to 90 uses per USB charge, with no additional attachments required, ever.

Additional Features:

BEAR features groundbreaking Anti-Shock System™ for the world’s safest, shock-free treatments.

Electrifying microcurrent tech for tighter, brighter skin - the most energizing facial ever.

Advanced App with the widest variety of facial workouts & treatments on the market.

Guided Facial Fitness Routines: Enjoy a variety of guided facial toning fitness workouts.

Personalized Device Settings: Access a range of microcurrent intensities & set up your BEAR to your precise preferences.

Instant App Connectivity: Auto-connects BEAR with your smartphone - never manually sync your device again!

Software Updates: Stay up-to-date with all the latest software improvements.

Find My BEAR™: Locates your device and automatically unlocks it.


1) Dry your BEAR then clean & dry your face carefully so there is no remaining residue. (Any oil on your face will deflect the microcurrent, making it ineffective.) Massage SERUM SERUM SERUM over all the areas you wish to treat until fully absorbed.

2) Press the button to activate BEAR’s microcurrent. The lights beneath the button indicate the microcurrent intensity. To change the intensity, quick-press the button once for each level. Turn off T-Sonic™ action by double-pressing the button. Access a wider range of microcurrent intensities via the app.

3) Lightly press both metallic spheres to your face then gently glide them across your face & neck. Both microcurrent spheres should touch your skin at all times. Glide BEAR slowly in an upward motion with light pressure for best results.

4) Once you finish your treatment, press & hold the button for 3 seconds to turn off the device. Apply any other skincare products of your choice, if desired.

In the box you receive the USB charger, a stand for the BEAR, storage pouch and a manual.
FOREO BEAR vs. NuFace Trinity: 

The FOREO BEAR is substantially smaller than the NuFace Trinity, and its silicone construction coupled with its size makes it very user friendly, comfortable in the hand and easy to handle. FOREO also has their proprietary Anti-ShockSystem™ to eliminate the chance of getting shocked. Both devices have have 5 micro-intensity levels, and FOREO suggests that you use their device for 3 minutes, whereas NuFace suggests 5 minutes of use. FOREO offers a generous 2 year warranty, whereas NuFace offers a 1 year warranty. One of the chief differences is that the NuFace Trinity has a detachable head and different targeted attachments that can be purchase separately, whereas FOREO BEAR does not. FOREO BEAR has a frequency of 185 Hz, whereas the NuFace Trinity has a frequency of 50/60Hz. FOREO BEAR costs $299.00 and the NuFace Trinity costs $325.00. If you already have a NuFace Trinity the works perfectly, then there is no need to purchase the FOREO BEAR, but if you are in the market for a new microcurrent toning device, then the FOREO BEAR is definitely worthy of your consideration.

FOREO SERUM SERUM SERUM is a conductive Micro-Capsule Serum that can be used with any microcurrent device. This nourishing serum has no scent, and it works very well as a stand alone hydrating serum, or as a microcurrent conducting gel.

According to FOREO,

Our hydrating SERUM SERUM SERUM safely transfers microcurrent* from BEAR to your skin. For optimal conductivity, apply a thin layer before using BEAR or BEAR mini & massage until fully absorbed.

SERUM SERUM SERUM may be used with any microcurrent device. NEVER use BEAR or any microcurrent device without a conductive serum, gel or cream.

Our micro-capsule infused formula ensures maximum penetration of youth-preserving antioxidants down where they can nourish your skin best.

Micro-capsules make sure that all the skin-smoothing squalane in our formula sinks in deeper, works better and stays locked beneath your skin longer.


- Antioxidant power of squalane gives your skin a healthy, youthful look

- Hyaluronic-acid based formula locks in moisture to give you softer, smoother and super-hydrated skin

- Fights free radicals known to damage skin

- Squalane-infused micro-capsules help balance oil production, protect skin, and diminish signs of aging

- Ultra-soothing formula glides effortlessly over your skin and works seamlessly with LUNA 3's firming massage mode which improves the serum’s efficiency


1. Start by making sure that your skin is clean and dry.
2. Massage 1-2 pumps of serum onto your face, neck & décolleté using circular motions.
3. To get the most out of your serum, keep massaging the micro-capsules until they’re fully absorbed into your skin.
4. When using with a FOREO device that has a firming massage function, apply a thin layer of serum to your face and/or neck before starting your firming massage treatment.
5. When used as a conducting agent for the FOREO BEAR apply it to clean, dry skin and follow the precise directions from FOREO.

Full Ingredients

Overall Assessment: If you are seeking a microcurrent facial firming device, the FOREO BEAR is user friendly, effective and a great option.

It is filled with botanical actives and peptides that deliver potent and bioactive Vitamin C to help plump, brighten and firm the skin. It combines, "a stable cellular extraction of wild harvested Kakadu plum (which is one of the highest sources of botanical, bioactive Vitamin C), with a stable Vitamin C ester (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) and then enhances the effectiveness of all that Vitamin C goodness with Kangaroo Paw Flower which is rich in Ferulic Acid." Furthermore, it is formulated to strengthen capillaries, increase collagen production, deeply hydrate, and to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

According to Blüh Alchemy,

Multi C Serum harnesses the power of age defying peptides and the world’s first stable vitamin C from wild harvested Kakadu plum cellular extract.

Directions: After cleansing and toning apply 1-2 pumps to the face, neck and décolleté, AM + PM. For all skin types.

Key Bioactives:

Kakadu Plum is the world’s highest source of vitamin C. It activates collagen production and brightens skin tone.

Kangaroo Paw Flower has powerful humectant properties and is rich in ferulic acid, a potent antioxidant that enhances vitamin C and protects from UV damage and oxidative stress.

Quandong strengthens capillaries and has potent antioxidant properties that fight free radical damage, reducing the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ingredients: *Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Distillate, **Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Extract, **Santalum Acuminatum (Quandong) Extract, **Davidsonia Pruriens (Davidson Plum) Extract, **Anigozanthos Flavidus (Kangaroo Paw Flower) Extract, *Opuntia Ficus Indica (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil, *Rosa Rubiginosa (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Rubis Idaeus (Red Raspberry) Seed Oil, *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Berry Oil, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, *Coffea Arabica (Raw Green Coffee) Bean Oil, Sclerotium Gum (Mushroom), Lactobacillus Ferment, *Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract, *Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract, MSM, Ecocert Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), *Daucus Carota (Carrot) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan ) Kernel Oil, Astaxanthin, Squalene (Olive), Ascorbyl Palminate (Vitamin C ) Ester, Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Tocopherol (Non-GMO), Tocotrienol (Non-GMO), *Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) C02 Extract, **Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Oil, Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Absolute Oil, *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavander) Oil, *Pelargonium Graveolens (Rose Geranium) Oil. *Organic  ** Wild harvested 

Live Botanical Sanctuary Barrier Balm ($42.00 for 30ml.): This luscious balm has a remarkably emollient light whipped fluffy texture that immediately melts into the skin. It contains a wonderful array of Amazonian butters such as: Murmuru, Tucuma, Ucuuba and Bacuri, that are rich, nourishing and healing anti-inflammatory ingredients. This balm deeply hydrates the skin, it helps to prevent water-loss, it protects, softens, repairs and moisturizes even the most sensitive skins. It contains no essential oils, and has no detectable aroma. This wondrous balm can also we used as a overnight mask, and it is miraculous in its ability to heal and rejuvenate the skin.

According to Live Botanical, 

An essential oil free balm that is our most occlusive, yet breathable formula.  A moisture-locking blend filled with nutrient-dense raw butters and oils plus plant-based waxes, sterols, and phospholipids.  Working in harmony to provide sanctuary for dry, sensitive conditions. This balm contains no added essential oils and the scent is natural and very earthy.

What sets this balm apart from others is the inclusion of unrefined oil-based phospholipids.  On a cellular level, the molecules attract and hold onto water while also organizing themselves into a structure similar to natural skin.  So when layered on damp skin, it creates an effective skin-identical layer.

It also helps improve the absorption of active ingredients and the delivery of sustained moisture throughout the day. Acting as a mild emulsifier to better incorporate water-based hydrating serums without causing harm to the lipid barrier.

Amazonian butters of murumuru, tucuma, ucuuba and bacuri are abundant in naturally occurring anti-inflammatory compounds that soothe irritated skin.  Helping to maintain elasticity, a key component to healthy skin.  Raw enzymes from the butters feed the skin to better protect against hypersensitivity while the emollients soften rough, dry patches.  If the skin is damaged, the properties help repair wounds such as sun or wind-burn.

Buriti, graviola/soursop, and carrot seed oils (not essential oils) provide a complex array of antioxidants such as flavonoids and polyphenols to protect against cellular degradation from UV and other environmental stressors.

The ceramide rich rice bran wax and protective pomegranate sterols create the seal providing the final occlusive element - preventing water loss and supporting the other ingredients to improve all-over moisture. 

The Amazonian ingredients used were all harvested by small, independent co-ops that help prevent rainforest clear-cutting. The fruit/nut trees harvested from provide important monetary opportunities to local communities vs. using the trees for lumber or cleared to graze livestock.  We focus mainly on regional ingredients but feel in small volumes this was a beneficial way to support indigenous groups.  We also will be donating $2 per full size balm sold for preservation efforts in addition to our normal donations relating to environmental and social justice causes.

Directions: Apply as the final layer in your skincare routine. For best results, ensure the skin is damp/hydrated to improve moisture function. It can also be used as a restorative night mask by applying a thicker layer, allowing a slow absorption while you sleep. During warmer months or when not as dry, mix in your palm with a hydrating serum to create a day cream for a lighter application.

Ingredients: Astrocaryum Murumuru Butter#, Astrocaryum Tucuma Butter#, Virola Sebifera (Ucuuba) Butter#, Daucus Carota Stavia (Carrot) Seed Lipid Oil (Not Essential Oil)*^, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Wax*^, Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil#, Annona Muricata (Soursop - Graviola) Oil#, Corylus Avellana (Hazelnut) Oil*^, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax^, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Sterols, Platonia Insignis (Bacuri) Butter# And Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil* & Lecithin* & Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil* & Corthellus Shiitake (Mushroom) Extract* 41% regionally sourced. *organic, ^regionally sourced and #fair-trade/co-op
Overall Assessment: These products are absolutely amazing, and the value is unbelievable. You receive 3 full size products with a $200.00 savings!
