Any chance that you could explain the difference in results between the NuFace and the FOREO, especially for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles?
Do you use them both?
Thanks, any info is much appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and lead a comment. the NuFACE device is specifically created to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the muscles with an FDA approved microcurrent. It is very effective at smoothing out skin and lifting it. There is a definite difference in the appearance of the skin, and the softening of the fine lines. I use it a few times a week, and definitely think it is a worthwhile tool. The FOREO LUNA is a cleaning device, first and foremost, but he back side is ribbed and it perfect to give the face an anti-aging facial. It essentially relaxes and mildly tones the muscles so that fine lines appear less prominent. There is no question that the NuFACE device is more effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I use my FOREO LUNA in the shower to wash my face, and when I am done I flip it on the other side and massage my facial muscles. It feels amazing and very relaxing, but definitely does not deliver the same level of results as the NuFACE. If you are looking for a single anti-aging device, then I think that you will get more from the NuFACE, but if you seek a cleansing device that also offers a wonderful facial massage, then I would get the FOREO LUNA. Let me know if you have any other questions. I hope that this was helpful to you! If you want to learn more about each– I have provided links to my reviews of both in this post! Happy Holidays! :-)
Thanks so much for your reply. I really appreciate the specifics of your answer.ReplyDelete
I bought a FOREO, but it sounds like I have to start saving for the NuFACE!! Oh, well.
It was the Lip and Eye Attachment that made me sit up and take notice. The lines around my eyes don't bug me, but those little lines above my upper lip make me crazy!!
Thanks again, and have a Happy New Year.
Absolutely my pleasure, sunnlitt! I love my FOREO LUNA, but it definitely doesn't do what the NuFACE does. My first personal encounter with NuFACE was during a facial, and I was absolutely sold on it as soon as I saw the difference in my skin! The effects are immediate, but they are also cumulative. Of course if you stop using it skin will revert back, but it's such a great device that I can't imagine not using it! It's definitely not inexpensive, but it's a worthwhile investment! The Lip and Eye Attachment is absolutely fantastic because it is able to get into those tiny spaces much more effectively than the regular attachment does. Happy New Year to you as well! Keep me posted! I would love to know what you think about this device if you end up getting it! :-)Delete
