With a pandemic taking a toll on everyone, the only way to transform a tired and stressed out complexion is by taking the alternative route, which is bringing the spa to you instead. With Nu Skin’s Galvanic Home Spa, you can now unlock the secret of a younger-looking you in just five minutes. As Nu Skin has recently launched its new and improved ageLOC Galvanic Spa device, I personally had the chance to try out the brand’s Home Rescue Kit and here’s what I thought about it.
In comparison to its predecessors, the Galvanic Spa today has a far more appealing user experience that offers a state-of-the-art feel to its users. It comes with a plastic panel front with a button placed in the middle. Once the device is turned on, the screen will show the user the recommended duration for a particular treatment. This facial toning device isn’t just small but it is also smart and powerful. But in addition to that improvement, Nu Skin has also upgraded the current that is used to deliver consistently to the skin. So even though it may look similar to the old model, it’s more of the upgraded work that has been done inside of the Galvanic Spa.
Touch & Smell 5/5
What makes this device fantastic is that it works well with its upgraded consumables: Facial Gels, PowerMask and NaPCA Moisture Mist. When it comes to both gels and mask, it has a very nice smell to it that isn’t too overpowering. The moisturising mask is actually made out of biocellulose — a thin, flexible material made of fibers that helps deliver maximum hydration to the skin. As for the Facial Gels, it comes in small transparent (Pre-treatment) and turquoise (Treatment) tubes. On another note, the PowerMask feels like a cool, moist gel that instantly feels refreshing on the skin. Whereas for the mist, it is super refreshing and something I personally would recommend everyone to use.
In order to apply it, all you have to do is cleanse your face before putting on the mask or the facial gel. It’s advised to use one product a day. In the case of the PowerMask, you will notice that it comes with two linings — one on either side. Remove one lining off and apply the mask to your face and then you can remove the lining on the other side afterwards. As this moisturising mask adheres to your skin really well, you can always tug on parts of the mask without messing it up. However, before handling the Galvanic Spa, you should moisten your hand with some NaPCA moisture mist as this would help the connectivity of the galvanic current. The facial spa has several treatment settings and for the mask, you can either choose setting number five for two minutes or for a more intense treatment, go for setting number four for five minutes. Begin the treatment starting from the centre of your forehead moving outward and as you’re moving the device, it’s important that the conductor maintains contact with the mask the entire time. You can also use the galvanic spa directly on your skin but you have to make sure that your skin is moist with the serum so you get the benefits.
On the other hand, for the Facial Gels, evenly apply the whole vial of the ageLOC Pre-Treatment Gel to the entire face and neck before handling the Galvanic Spa. Once the gel is applied to your skin, you can set the treatment to number 1 which lasts for two minutes. After placing the device on your skin, you will hear a few beeps. This comes to show that the current level is now active and the device will continuously beep every ten seconds to indicate that it’s still working. The same thing with the PowerMask, it is always better to handle the Galvanic Spa after moisturising your hands with some NaPCA Moisture Mist. Once that part is done, begin to slowly glide the Conductor head over your skin in an outward motion. When your galvanic application is over, the device will emit a long beep followed by two short beeps. So the first part of the Facial Gel treatment is done. Now moving on to the Treatment Gel, just repeat the same previous steps of the Pre-Treatment once you have removed the excess gel from your skin. But only this time, select setting number 2 instead.
The Galvanic Spa features a microcurrent technology that works well its companion products. By helping send age-reversing signals, the device is able to deliver more compelling results that users can see and feel.
What makes the PowerMask truly incredible is the charged hydration particles in the serum that activates with the Galvanic Spa to deeply hydrate the skin. It is known to quench your skin’s thirst with an instant surge of hydration. This biocellulose mask works to increase skin radiance as well as reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As it works marvellously with the Galvanic Spa, it is worth noting that it contains a proprietary blend that’s infused with charged moisture magnets. The active ingredients that are infused into the mask don’t just help deliver a surge of hydration to the skin but it also targets ageing appearance. After using the mask, you will certainly see a vast difference by having a much more hydrated, refreshed and visibly renewed skin. Hence, a more youthful appearance.
As for the Facial Gels, it comes with two vials: Pre-Treatment & Treatment gels. Users should take note when it comes to this treatment, there are two treatment settings to follow. For the Pre-Treatment, it is negatively charged and so is setting number one on the Galvanic Spa. As negative charges lead to repelling, the usage of the Pre-Treatment gel into the skin will work to bind impurities, soften and relax the pores as well as dissolving any excess oils.
When it comes to the Treatment gel, it is advised to use setting number two on the Galvanic Spa. Since both gel and treatment setting is positively charged, it works the same — repelling. What contains in the treatment gel is plenty of anti-ageing ingredients that are going to help the user achieve a more youthful look. It doesn’t just help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles but you’ll get a softer and more radiant skin.
A typical ageLOC Galvanic Spa Face Pack comes with two ageLOC Galvanic Spa Facial Gels, ageLOC Galvanic Spa PowerMask (5 masks), NaPCA Moisture Mist and of course, the ageLOC Galvanic Spa lll which comes with four conductors and is sold at only RM2,145. The Galvanic Spa technology is already being used in most spas these days. However, what makes this whole kit worth it is that you can now achieve these great results in the comfort of your own home.
After using both PowerMask and Facial Gels with the Galvanic Spa for a month, it is safe to say that it certainly works and I do see a difference on my face. But as advised, you should use these products and devices for at least two or three times a week to achieve amazing results.
