| All You Need to Know About FOREO UFO 2 vs FOREO UFO Mini 2

As you all know, Malaysia is under nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO) yet again as an effort to bring the Covid-19 cases down. This time, it will be until 7th June (I hope). Let’s all pray that we can really curb the number of cases so there will be no extension.

Ever since December 2020, I have been relying on my FOREO UFO to substitute facial sessions at the beauty salon. As much as I try to avoid going to the beauty salon, my skin will suffer if I just leave it as it is. Hence, it was such a blessing to be able to pamper my skin from the comfort of my own home after getting my FOREO UFO smart device.

If you haven’t gotten your FOREO UFO yet, now’s the time to get one for yourself as FOREO has just added 2 new FOREO UFO devices into their range – FOREO UFO 2 and FOREO UFO Mini 2. As a skincare enthusiast, I’m truly excited to discover how these 2 devices fare. Hope you’ll enjoy my sharing on FOREO UFO 2 vs FOREO UFO Mini 2.

How UFO 2 and UFO Mini 2 Works

FOREO UFO 2 and UFO Mini 2 are revolutionary smart mask treatment devices that delivers full spectrum LED light Therapy with Hyper-Infusion Technology for targeted photofacial to reinvigorate the skin. The beauty of UFO 2 and UFO Mini 2 by FOREO Sweden is the ability to produce the result of a spa-like facial in just 90 seconds!

Before we jump to the comparison part, let’s take a look at how they look like physically and what’s in the box.

FOREO UFO 2 Review

Just like FOREO UFO, UFO 2 by FOREO comes in 3 beautiful colors: Fuchsia, Mint, and Pearl Pink. I decided to go with Fuchsia again because the striking vibrant color is really my style. Encased in a sturdy acrylic plastic casing, the luxuriously sophisticated device is calling for me to unbox it.

FOREO UFO Mini 2 Review

Just like UFO 2, UFO Mini 2 also comes in 3 color selections: Fuchsia, Mint, and Pearl Pink. For this one, I decided to choose another color that I also love – Mint. It’s such a relaxing color to look at! Size wise, it looks smaller than UFO 2 but it’s actually just an optical illusion because the gold detail part is smaller than UFO 2.

As you can see from the table above, the main difference between UFO 2 and UFO Mini 2 is the lack of Cryo-Therapy function in UFO Mini 2.

Cryo-Therapy is a cooling treatment that helps to calm, firm the skin, shrink the appearance of pores and reduces puffiness instantly. So if you opt for FOREO UFO Mini 2, you’ll have to forgo these benefits. I’d say this treatment is pretty essential especially if you have oily skin with enlarged pores.

Another main difference is, you can customize your own supercharged treatment by changing the duration, LED light color, temperature and the intensity of T-Sonic pulsation via the Smart Control setting in Foreo app.

Can you use FOREO UFO 2 and FOREO UFO Mini 2 without the app?

When you first get your UFO, it comes with Make My Day and Call It A Night pre-programmed on the device. One short press to activate the Make My Day Treatment or two short presses to activate the Call It a Night Treatment. These 2 programmes can be used with any smart mask. If you want to get mask-specific features, you will need to download the FOREO app to store the programme into your device. You can use it without the app next time. You just need to make three short presses and so on and so forth according to the sequence of the mask programmes you have downloaded. In short, YES, you can use FOREO UFO without the app!

Final thoughts

As an endnote, the UFO is definitely an intelligent beauty essential where Korean mask experts meet Swedish beauty technology that is worth purchasing. I specifically love how this small device is powerfully packed and lets me get a quick spa at home. It provides me with instant results by reducing dullness and providing instant hydration into the deepest layers of the skin. It is convenient, portable and a must-have for all skincare lovers who don’t mind investing in long term skincare.
