How Much Is the UFO

Save on your FOREO UFO for the holidays.. treat yourself : )

FOREO is one of the leading brands in skincare and now they are venturing into the world of beauty gadgets with their UFO.

The FOREO UFO is a device that can be used to pamper, mask, and moisturize your skin all at once.

But before you get too excited about this piece of technology, there’s some information you should know first.

The UFO isn’t cheap, but can be used in many scenarios within your skincare routine!

The UFO retails for $279 and the UFO Mini Retails for $179-which to be fair is a one-time purchase.

You’ll have the option to choose from a number of masks created for the UFO which will set you back anywhere between $9.99-$19.99 each time you need to replace them- so it may not be ideal for everyone on a budget or someone who doesn’t like wasting money on products that don’t work well for them.

I’ve been using it for years now and my skin has improved in texture and overall appearance since using the UFO!

The moisture that’s left behind after you remove the mask makes your skin feel very hydrated, smooth and looks very plump, It also leaves a cooling sensation which is very pleasant.

I have quite a few dry patches on my forehead that the UFO has greatly reduced since using it for only one month! I’d recommend this product to anyone who’s 20+ and is looking for an advanced exfoliation/cleansing system at home that will leave your skin looking flawless, hydrated, and smooth.

Overall, I’m very happy with the UFO and I can’t recommend it enough! It leaves my skin looking clear, plump, hydrated, and glowing which is everything I want from an advanced masking system that’s convenient enough to use at home.

Let’s talk about what the UFO does come with

What Comes With The FOREO UFO

If you’re looking for a skincare device that is easy to use, versatile and great for all types of skin, the FOREO UFO is perfect.

The UFO comes with the following:

-UFO Device (the actual device)

-Charging Cable (USB)

-1 Make My Day Mask Treatment (preshaped gel pad infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Acai Berry extract)

-UFO Stand (stands the device upright when not in use).

The FOREO UFO doesn’t come with instructions-don’t panic! You can download the app and it walks you through everything.

Please save yourself frustration and pick up another box of masks. The UFO only comes with 1 mask.

Here’s what the app looks like

What Does The FOREO App Do?

If we’re anything alike (which I’m guessing we are) we’re always looking for the best, most effective products to use on our skin.

Let’s look at what the FOREO App does and how it works so that you can make a decision about whether or not this is something that would work well for your skincare routine.

The app is the brain behind your UFO (a device made by Foreo), which means it controls all of the settings used in treatments.

It’s super simple and takes the thought process out of trying to figure out settings – there’s no need to think about what each setting might do because they’re already programmed into this app!

Once you’re ready to start your treatment, just connect your UFO to your phone. By connecting your UFO, you’re telling the device what mask you’re using, and it will determine the settings to apply for that particular mask.

I’ve been asked how does the UFO know what mask you’re using? When it comes time to start the mask it will prompt you to scan the barcode on the bottom right-hand corner and it will automatically load.

You’ll get a screen like this.

Difference Between the UFO and UFO Mini

Let’s get into the difference between the FOREO UFO and UFO Mini. As you might have heard, these two products are almost the same, with the exception of the overall appearance and features.

The big sister, which is the UFO, is $279 whereas the Mini is $179.

Besides the price, the two other differences are:

* Not all masks work in the Mini (2 out of 7 aren’t compatible with the UFO mini)

* The UFO mini does not have a whilst doesn’t come with the Cryotherapy the UFO does. (Currently, only 2 out of the 7 masks use the cooling effect.)

To put it succinctly, the two main differences between these two products are:

1) The Mini is less expensive than the UFO and is compatible with fewer masks

2) The UFO has an added cooling element that isn’t present in the UFO mini.

If you’re looking for a gift for yourself or someone in your life who loves beauty products, I highly suggest the UFO.

You’ll have the opportunity to experience the benefits of the entire mask line- since the UFO Mini isn’t equipped with the cooling technology.

The Mini is a smaller more affordable version of its big sister, but it doesn’t come with all of these additional features that might be important to you.

However, looking at the other side, you won’t have to pay as much for the UFO mini if you’re on a budget or only plan to use the product once or twice a week.

Please feel free to leave any questions about these two products in the comment section below!

The two masks that aren’t compatable with the Mini are:

UFO Shimmer Freak

Shimmer Freak

Price: $19.99 for a pack of six masks

The Shimmer Freak is a caffeine-infused mask that uses blue LED lighting. The blue LED light helps by reducing the appearance of dark circles.

The Shimmer Freak Formula is a blend that aids in bringing life back into the delicate skin around the eyes!

UFO Matte Maniac

Matte Manic

Matte Maniac

Price: 19.99 for a pack of six

Matte Maniac is a charcoal mask that also uses Blue LED light. Since Blue LED light is cooling it also helps to lock in moisture to your skin. Matte Maniac is a mix of charcoal, snow lotus, and witch hazel with is perfect for minimizing the appearance of pores.

The UFO Mini may be a option for you if you don’t necessarily care for:

  • The cooling effect that the bigger one offers.
  • There’s only 2 out of the seven masks that aren’t compatible with the mini.

This leads into what treatment options are available

THE FOREO Masks available

Now that we know the mini isn’t compatible with two of the masks, let’s talk about the other five masks compatible on both devices.

These masks range from $9.99 – $19.99

  1. Make My Day- $9.99
  2. Call it a Nigh- $9.99
  3. H2O Overdose-$19.99
  4. Glow Addict-$19.99
  5. Youth Junkie-$19.99
UFO Make My day

Make My Day- $9.99

Make My Day is very hydrating. The two main ingredients are red algae and Hyaluronic acid.

When purchasing the UFO this is the sample I received. Since I have oily skin I like the matte Maniac better, make my day left my skin a little greasy feeling.

 Call it a night

Call It A Night- $9.99

Call It A Night a mask is made with olive oil and ginseng. I wasn’t over;y fond with this one either because I don’t like the tacky feeling left on my skin with certain products. I will say; however, I fought through it, and I woke up with soft, radiant skin.

H2O Overdose

H2Overdose- $19.00

H2Overdose is exactly what it sounds like, I LOVE this mask. This mask is straight Hyaluronic acid, which is ideal for hydrating the skin. 

I use this mask after Dermaplaning my face and the results are mind blowing! I also use the H2Overdose after a long day at the beach which I have noticed prevents my skin from peeling!

UFO Glow Addict

Glow Addict- $19.00

The Glow Addict is Pearl infused and is perfect for brightening your tired dull skin. for those of you that love to color coordinate your vanity, this Pink is a must have for your shelf.

FOREO Youth Junkie

Youth Junkie- $19.00

Youth Junkie is another favorite by many UFO users, anything collagen-boosting effects, sign me up! If you’re searching for a mask that targets firming and uplifting look this is going to be for you!

Can you Use the UFO without the App?

So, can you use the UFO without the app?

The answer is yes, although it’s easier to use the APP.

This can be annoying to some but for me, I actually like the voice on the app.

It adds another level of relaxation and will guide you through what’s going on with your skin at that time.

Is the UFO Worth the Money?

If you’re thinking about investing in FOREO’s UFO, but don’t know if it would be worth the money for your skincare routine and lifestyle – let me tell you that I am a diehard believer.

The UFO took some getting used to because its one of the first beauty gadgets that came equipped with an app, but now that I’ve been using it consistently for a while and my skin has never looked better and I’m finding more ways to use it in outer areas of my routine.

It saves time by providing an all-in-one mask experience which is perfect when I’m too lazy or busy to deal with sheet masks on top of everything else.

If this sounds like something that would work well for you then give the UFO a try before the Summer Promotion expires again!  I promise you won’t regret it.

I hope this was helpful! If you’re thinking about buying one, check out my post about the difference between the UFO And UFO 2 here! If you have any questions please feel free to comment below or email me at

To sum things up you’ll like the UFO if:

  • You hate dealing with the mess of sheet masks and don’t have a lot of downtime.
  • You want to be able to use the entire line of masks that foreo has to offer.
  • If you have oily skin the cooling sensation helps close those pores.

You’ll like the UFO Mini if:

  • You’re on a strict budget, the mini is 179 vs 279
  • You don’t care for the cooling option on the device.
  • You don’t need the matte Maniac or Shimmer freak. (Not To say you can’t use it, you just won’t get the most out of the mask)

Final Thoughts On The FOREO UFO

If you are a skincare lover and don’t have time to go to the spa, but need that “at-home” feeling of pampering, The UFO is perfect for you!

With the technology, you can enjoy benefits like heating or cooling on your face that will work wonders for your complexion.

FOREO has made this product easy as well by making one device do both jobs (the mini does not cool). If cost is an issue, then take into consideration whether or not cooling would be beneficial for your skin type before buying the UFO because there are two different devices with their own benefits.

This product comes with 1 sample mask so make sure to pick up some additional masks when purchasing this item! You’ll be glad you did because it’s an amazing way to keep up with skincare while saving money on shipping at the same time.

Let us know if we can help answer any questions about which model would be best for you- I’m always willing to help!
