“I got the pleasure of using the machine for 2 weeks. Let’s just start by saying how amazed I was. Not only did it make my makeup look flawless, but my skin became poreless, smoother and clear from all the blemishes I get. People were noticing! They would say things like “Wow your makeup looks great! Did you do anything different?” Being a hairstylist using fumes and hairspray, heat and products, I usually get super oily midday, but using the machine before doing my makeup, I wouldn’t have to retouch it. Favorite machine and total beauty changer.”

“I started using the device on October 16, 2019. I’ve had oily skin my entire life and after using the device even just one day I could tell a difference. I usually have to use facial blotting papers everyday at about 11:00 am because I can feel the oiliness begin on my face. I didn’t even think about using the papers even after the first day of using the device. It was pretty fantastic.
As I continued to use the device over the next 2 weeks I noticed that face seemed smoother. Before using the device I would have to put my moisturizer on and then wait for about 5-7 minutes for it to absorb into my skin before applying my foundation. I noticed that when I used the device I didn’t have to wait. My moisturizer soaked into my skin right away & I was able to apply my foundation immediately. My foundation also seemed to glide over my skin better.
Also before using the device if I was going out after work I would have to take my old makeup off & reapply new makeup because of all the oiliness. I didn’t have to do that while I was using the device. It was amazing! I can’t say enough great things about this device and I can’t wait to be able to purchase one. It’s super easy to use and takes only 15 seconds to make a difference on a daily basis.
Thank you for allowing me to try this out!”
