We’ve come to expect certain things from our sheet masks. We know that they’ll be made out of some sort of flexible paper material, they’ll be soaked in a good for-our-skin serum or ampoule and we’ll have to leave them on for about 20 minutes. FOREO is about to completely change things with the launch of its UFO Smart Mask Device.
FOREO had been teasing the launch online with the device being pixelated in the photos. When it was finally unveiled, many were surprised to see that it was a round puck-like device as opposed to something resembling a sheet mask. The UFO is described as being a device that combines “the best of beauty and technology for a spa-worthy facial treatment in just 90 seconds.”
To use the high tech skincare tool, you remove the clear piece of plastic on the device. Next, you insert one of the single use round sheet masks in it. Once secured, you are then able to select your treatment. The app-controlled device features Hyper-Infusion Technology (heating, cooling, T-Sonic pulsations) and LED light therapy (red, green, blue), thus combining professional treatments and the benefits on traditional K-beauty sheet masks in one spaceship-like device.
If you want to get the device, things are a little different this time. There is an original version of the UFO device along with a mini, and they are launching on Kickstarter. A $25 donation will get you the FOREO Luna Play Plus Device. The next level is $89 and gets you the UFO mini plus 14 Day and Night Masks. The rewards go up to $2,000 pledges. The big donation gets you a limited-edition engraved UFO and 26 Day and Night Masks.
According to the campaign, the UFO Mini will be $179 and the UFO will be $279 so there are savings to be had with the Kickerstarter campaign. Like FOREO’s other devices, they will also be available in different pastel colors. The Day And Night Masks will be available to buy separately for $9.99 for a 10 package.
