Truly otherworldly: This is the Foreo UFO!
November 3, 2018

Classified investigation folders. Otherworldly sightings. Future obsessions.  In many ways Swedish brand Foreo send out perfectly the right signs prior to their new launch.

Blending Korean mask expertise with Swedish beauty technology, the Foreo UFO is the world’s first smart mask device to offer spa-level facial treatments in just 90 seconds [as against 20 min for traditional sheet masks]. Much prescribed for tired tech journos, the UFO combines LED light therapy with cryo-therapy, thermo-therapy and T-Sonic pulsations, activated via your smartphone.

Delivering a complete facial treatment, the device evenly distributes the sought-after Korean mask essence across every area of the face, while its various functions allow active ingredients to penetrate more deeply for superior results.

Hyper-infusion technology is key to the whole process, combining heating to open pores, T-Sonic pulsations to instantly infuse active ingredients more deeply into the skin and cryotherapy to seal the active ingredients and firm the skin. It includes LED light therapy to offer three photo-facials, including anti-aging (red LED), brightening (green LED) and anti-acne (blue LED).

The device works together with the two daily routine UFO-activated sheet masks (Make My Day and Call It A Night), which targets flawless skin from dawn to dusk. Each UFO-Activated Mask has a unique treatment routine, so whether you prefer a wakeup call or want to relax when ready to call it a night. The Smart Masks are infused with plant and fruit extracts, concentrated botanical oils and natural flower water. Each mask is paired with a pre-programmed UFO treatment routine to boost their effects.

The UFO should be paired with the FOREO app [iOS and Android] to get the most out of the device. The ‘Make My Day’ and ‘Call It a Night’ masks are pre-programmed into the device, while the FOREO app syncs with the newly launched Advanced mask collection created to suit all skin types, as well as all future mask treatments.

As with all FOREO products, the UFO device has a medical grade silicone body, including a 100% waterproof design and a USB charger.

The UFO retails for AED 1,450 and is now available exclusively through Sephora stores across the region.
