Foreo has just announced an at-home-facial device skincare junkies will love
Australian pricing is yet to be announced on the Foreo UFO but we've found a list of Foreo stockists.
Foreo's latest device, called the UFO, is already causing a storm in the beauty world. The brand announced this new at-home-facial device at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas yesterday and its plans to "disrupt the sheet mask industry".
These devices are already available in limited quantities and you can get 50% off thanks to Foreo's partnership with Kickstarter. It looks like the Kickstarter offer ships worldwide so get in quick if you're in Australia. According to spokespeople for Foreo, an Australian launch date and Australian pricing has not yet been announced – but finder will be keeping its eyes peeled for any news as soon as it emerges. The UFO with a 14 day supply of masks looks like it will retail for $299 in America, which gives an indication of the price bracket we'll be looking at for Australian prices.
In Australian Foreo products are currently stocked at Adore Beauty, Myer, David Jones, Skincarestore, Facial Co., Sephora, Brands Exclusive, Active Skin and Dufry. We're expecting all these stores to eventually stock the new Foreo UFO but our gaze is firmly fixed on Sephora who is often at the forefront of big beauty launches like Fenty Beauty for example.
What is the Foreo UFO?
If you've previously used any of Foreo's other devices, you'll know that this brand is a true innovator in the skincare industry. The super popular Foreo Luna, for example, is a cleansing device with a textured surface that uses T-Sonic pulsations to cleanse more deeply and really clean out all that foundation you spent 20 minutes buffing into your skin with a stippling brush. There's a Foreo video with more info on how it works.
Just like the Luna, the UFO is a game changer, but in the sheet mask and LED facial realm. You know those super fun Korean Beauty sheet masks? Well Foreo's UFO promises to make them work harder for you.
The UFO can also apparently offer light therapy treatments – which is the part that is the most interesting to the beauty team at finder because light facials are really pricey! According to Foreo, the UFO can offer three types of photo facial, the anti-ageing red light facial, the brightening green light facial and the anti-acne blue light facial. And if it really does offer salon-at-home quality light facials, you can bet that we'll be first in line to buy one of these devices as soon as they hit the shelves.
The UFO also has an app that can help you control your device and help you track and customise your skincare routine. You can also apparently order new sheet mask attachments for your UFO on the app. Cool, huh?
