REVIEW – NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device

I’ve never really understood the fuss about beauty gadgets – until now.

While I do not slack on the usual skincare routine (I cleanse, tone and moisturize every day and night, exfoliate once a week, and have a mask on every other week), I generally have a laidback attitude towards skincare and beauty treatments.

Besides, how much would those fancy devices help, right?

female_Beauty_Updates_sephoraworkoutskin_2My question was answered when I was handed the NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device for the Sephora Beaute Box review.

The NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device (which is a travel-friendly size compared to the original NuFACE Trinity) is based on an advanced micro-current technology that helps improve facial contour, tone the skin and reduce wrinkles. The box comes with a manual, the device, a gel primer and an adapter – which is straightforward for a beauty tech newbie like me!


Before I got started on the device, the manual directed me to check the video online for clearer instructions.


After thoroughly cleansing my face, I started by gliding the device across my upper jawline in an upward motion to the lower ear, then from my cheek to the middle of the ear and lastly, from my upper cheek to the top of the ear – all lasting for about five seconds each (plus point: the device gives of a “beep” sound after every five seconds, so we don’t have to keep track of the time ourselves!).

Then, I started on my brows to the top of my forehead, and repeated the steps three times. Next, I used a warm, damp cloth to remove the primer and applied moisturizer to complete the treatment.

I liked the device as I noticed a small (albeit temporary) change right after the first use – my meaty cheeks looked a little more toned. While it advises to use it five times a week for the first 90 days, this slightest change gave me confidence to continue using it. Also, as I lathered a generous amount of the gel primer, I didn’t feel any “zapping” sensation until it got a little dry (I tried the medium micro-current level throughout my usage).

Overall, the only downside of the package is the size of the gel primer. Considering the amount I have to use, 59ml might not be enough to last for long.

NuFace Mini Facial Toning Device is available for RM720 at all Sephora stores.
