The Foreo Your Home Spa Set, priced at $329, is what I’ve been waiting for throughout my beauty-tech journey. The compact, lightweight devices, smart products (e.g. the Foreo Luna mini 2 and UFO 2), and the app-connected, spa-like skincare treatments are revolutionary, technologically innovative and highly effective.

Caring for your skin can sometimes take a backseat. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to bed with a fully beat face because of the “toos”. I was too exhausted. I had too many other things to do. It was taking too long to see results. When the Foreo Your Home Spa Set came along, my skincare routine transformed for the better. With a twice-a-day regimen, my skin looks and feels like I have regular private sessions with an esthetician — hydrated, fresh, deeply cleaned and clear. I went from less than stellar to “You glow, girl!” 

A visit to a spa for a deep cleanse, a hydrating mask and a facial massage costs $65-$170, plus tip. For a one-time investment of $329, Foreo Your Home Spa Set offers spa-like skin care treatments and you’ll see results from the jump. There’s nothing else like this on the beauty tech market. It’s the best beauty-tech bundle of 2021.

The pointed, domed top half of the Foreo Luna mini 2 is covered in medical-grade silicone touchpoints. It feels like a soft silicone brush for your face; it’s non-abrasive and gentle. The silky smooth bottom half of the device is where you’ll find the Foreo logo and the triple-touch interface — the power button, and the plus and minus massage intensity controls. The waterproof charging port is on the flip side. The Luna mini 2 is compact and lightweight, measuring (3.3 x 3.3 x 1 inches) and weighing 2.4 ounces. Its base is clear acrylic. 

The app-connected Foreo UFO 2 looks like a jazzed-up hockey puck, but it's really a super-sophisticated smart mask device. The front side of the UFO 2 is a work of art, with Foreo centered in the middle of a mandala-inspired, 2.3-inch gold disc. The backside houses a smooth-surfaced,1.8-inch gold round platform where you secure the Foreo UFO 2-activated, one-use, H2Overdose smart mask (or any Foreo mask) with the UFO clear acrylic attachment ring.  Don’t worry about the UFO 2 slipping out of your hand. Its perimeter is made of sure grip, body-safe silicone. The device measures 2.8 x 1 inches, so it's a cinch to take with you on your winter-break adventures (e.g. holidays with the in-laws).  

Foreo Your Home Spa Set technology 

Between IKEA, Spotify, and now Foreo, Swedish innovators have proven time and again that they know how to do it right. And now Foreo CEO and Swedish serial entrepreneur Filip Sedic is carrying the beauty tech torch. Since launching Foreo in 2013 with his wife Ivana, the Foreo brand has turned the paradigm of skincare beauty tech on its head.

The innovation revolution is shining with the Foreo Your Home Spa Set, which includes the Luna mini 2, UFO 2, UFO-activated H2Overdose mask and Foreo Micro-foam cleanser. This set delivers customizable, at-home spa-like treatments with visible first-use results in less than five minutes. “But how?” you ask. Let me break it down for you.

The LUNA mini 2 is a facial cleansing and massaging device with eight adjustable massage intensities that uses transdermal-sonic (T-Sonic) pulsations, paired with a revolutionary silicone brush, designed to deep clean your face in one minute. The ultra-hygienic pulsating silicone brush touchpoints oscillate at a sonic speed that results in the removal of blemish-causing impurities. We’re talking about a cleanse so deep that it unblocks pores, which is ideal because that makes them appear smaller, leaving smoother, more supple skin. And because the device is made of medical-grade, body-safe silicone, the Luna mini is suitable for all skin types. How cool is that?

The UFO 2 is the spa-in-your-hand, two-minute facial. It’s a revolutionary power mask device that combines thermotherapy (instant warming that pushes active ingredients deep into the dermis) and cryotherapy (instant cooling that minimizes puffiness and instantly lifts and firms) with T-Sonic pulsations to infuse active-mask ingredients where they work the best (deep below the surface of the skin). 

The UFO 2 is technologically equipped with eight different LED lights that address any skincare need or concern from Red LED (stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to firm and lift the skin) to Blue LED (treats acne and prevents future breakouts by killing acne-causing bacteria). There’s also Green LED, which evens out skin tone, brightens complexion and softens age spots. All of the UFO treatments are customizable and designed to keep your skin hydrated, rejuvenated and glowy 24/7.

So far, so great, right? The last two components of the Foreo Your Home Spa Set are the Foreo H2Overdose Mask and the Micro-Foam Cleanser. The FOREO H2Overdose ultra-hydrating mask is a microfiber, UFO-activated mask that’s infused with hyaluronic acid, which helps increase the skin's moisture, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.  Pair it with UFO 2 for the ultimate spa-like, two-minute facial treatment. The Micro-Foam Cleanser is gentle enough for all skin types, but still powerful enough to lift impurities and remove excess oil from the pores. Vitamin E and amino acids partner up to help moisturize and protect your skin.

Foreo For You app 

The free Foreo For You app is awesome, and that’s a good thing because the skin care treatments for the UFO 2 are app-connected. You can’t use the UFO 2 until you unlock it via the app. Once you sync your UFO 2 device to the app via Bluetooth, you’re free to roam wild and take advantage of all the app has to offer: how-to’s, guided routines, power mask and light therapy treatments, and so much more. Talk about having the power of a spa in your hand.

I also like how easy the app is to navigate. Upon opening the app, your registered devices (the Luna mini 2 and UFO 2 for the Foreo Your Home Spa Set) appear at the top of the screen. Click on each device to see its info and how the app can enhance your Foreo experience. Explore the five icons on the bottom of the home screen to browse Foreo sales, peruse FAQ’s, update your profile info, or read the Foreo Newswire for all things Foreo, including new product launches. 

The Foreo For You app is solid. Some of the articles need updating and I would also like to see a full user manual for the UFO 2, but these are minor blemishes compared to all the user exclusives that come with the app. 

Foreo Your Home Spa Set setup 

I know you’re super excited to see what all the Foreo Your Home Spa Set hoopla is about, but first please go online and read all the manuals and instructions for each device and product prior to using. There are too many sophisticated beauty tech devices involved here to assume anything. Besides, you’ll get the most out of each Foreo device and product by being informed.

Next, fully charge your UFO 2 and Luna mini 2 prior to using them for the first time as they may not be fully charged upon arrival. Bummer for those of us born with the impatient gene (that’s me!). The good news is it only takes two and a half hours to fully charge the UFO 2 (giving you up to 40 uses), and one hour to fully charge the Luna mini 2 (for five months of use before it needs to be recharged). 

Now you’re ready to download the Foreo app. Connect to the app on your smartphone via Bluetooth. Press the power button on the UFO 2 to sync to the app. Set up your profile and register the UFO 2 and Luna mini 2. In the app, scan the barcode for the H2Overdose Mask for product verification and instructions.   

Foreo Your Home Spa Set performance 

The Foreo beauty tech rumblings reached my auditory faculties this past summer when I was only marginally familiar with its devices. After the first use, I became a full on Foreolifer and I’ll tell you why. My skin looked better after one, five-minute session using the four components of the Foreo Your Home Spa Set. Compared to other cleansing and facial-massage devices I’ve used, the Foreo Your Home Spa Set reigns supreme. 

Bottom line  

There’s nothing else like the Foreo Your Home Spa Set on the beauty tech market. I saw the difference one use made with my skin. The improvement was immediate and noticeable and took less than five minutes. I recommend the Foreo Your Home Spa Set (priced at $329) to anyone who takes skincare seriously and believes in the science of innovation.
