IS THE NUFACE WORTH THE HYPE?
I’ve been using the NuFACE for the past 30 days and in short, it’s quickly become one of my favourite at-home beauty tools. The results are truly incredible have a look at my Day1 vs Day 30 photo, same lighting standing in the same spot in the bathroom. I cannot believe the difference from my eye brow lift, to texture, and my snatched jawline - this is 100% not a gimmick.
WHAT IS THE NUFACE?
The NuFACE is a device that uses micro-currant technology to help lift, tone and contour your facial muscles. Kind of like a workout for your face! The microcurrents are also known to help the production of collagen and elastin.
The first time I heard about the NuFACE, I was getting CACI Facial - a facial that focuses on lifting and toning your skin, something I’d always notice when I’d leave my appointment. During one of my visits, I was having a conversation with the esthetician and she started telling me about the NuFACE. She mentioned that while it won’t be as powerful as getting an in office treatment (kind of like at home micro-needling – it’s great to do, but it won’t be as powerful as an in-office visit), with time and diligence, the NuFACE will achieve similar “lifting” results as an in-office treatment. It’s also proven to promote the drainage of fluid, making it an excellent de-bloater/de-puffer. There’s also clinical evidence that microcurrent works to lift sagging skin.
I’ve also chatted with numerous professionals in the beauty industry who swear by this little gadget. Conversation after conversation, it was a no brainer that I needed this little device in my hands.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE THE NUFACE?
For the first 1-2 months, it’s recommended that you use it for at least 5 minutes a day, 5 times a week. After that, you maintain the results by using 2-3x a week. Kind of like working out, the more you use it, the better your results will be. I’ve noticed that 5 minutes a day, 4-5x a week does a nice job at making me look and feel more sculpted. If you have more time, even better.
HOW DO I USE THE NUFACE? DAY OR NIGHT?
If you decide to get it, I recommend watching this video. It’s super helpful! There are also a ton of great videos on the NuFACE Instagram page. I use mine in the morning, before I shower, but I’ve also heard that some people use it at night. I prefer the morning as I want to look freshly lifted for the day. But I know that using it day or night is better than not using at all.
IS THE GEL PRIMER NECESSARY?
I’ve been using the gel primer because I have it, but I’ve been told my a few beauty editors that aloe vera gel does the trick. I have yet to try that option, but I’ll update this as soon as I do.
LETS CUT TO THE CHASE, IS THE NUFACE WORTH IT?
So this is where I’m 100% real with all of you. I love this little thing, especially when I use is consistently. Consistency is key. I don’t want any of you to waste your money and then have it sit in your bathroom cabinet, not seeing the light of day. If you have the time to commit five minutes a day, several times a week, I definitely think it’s a worthy investment. I’m including the above photo, but I actually debated NOT including it because the results are so subtle. I notice a difference, but you all may not. It’s the same thing in-person – I look at my cheekbones and my bone structure and I notice a subtle difference, but it’s enough to make me happy and motivate me enough to keep using it.
My reality is that age 40 is way closer than 30 and I could use the extra TLC. I love it and I know you will too.
