I have a dirty little secret to admit: I am 38 years old and have never had a facial. I am certain that I need to get regular facials, as I struggle with significant skin difficulties. The problem is that I have a very difficult time justifying the cost and the time that is involved. If I am being really honest, I also hate the idea of a professional telling me just how bad my skin really is. So what’s the answer? The Le Mieux 4-in-1 Ultrasonic Anti-Aging Skin Perfecter.
Le Mieux is an international cosmetics and skincare line that has been dedicated to finding the most innovative skin care solutions for over ten years, with a focus on biology and chemistry. The Le Mieux Skin Perfecter is like having your own professional esthetician in your home. I was super excited to get the chance to test out this little gem. You are probably wondering what it does…
It is an ultrasonic beauty tool that is designed to provide four skin treatments in one. The 28,000 vibrations per second emitted by the device are designed to help cleanse, exfoliate, extract and infuse to improve the overall clarity of your skin. And, it’s great for all skin types. Use it 3 minutes a day, no more than 3 times weekly. The only time you use a product with it is when you want to infuse. Otherwise, you use it on wet skin only.
The bent edge of the Le Mieux Skin Perfecter works by massaging or vibrating the oil and debris from your pores. While the flat side of the spatula appears to be key for infusing serums. The device also offers different settings based on your skin type.
The Le Mieux Skin Perfecter is really pretty amazing. I have very oily skin, clogged pores and frequent acne. I feel like this device was made for me. My skin has just felt so much fresher and looks much clearer since I have begun using this. It is insanely cool how well this clears out your pores and blackheads. It is disgusting and awesome. (Click that link if you’re a fan of pimple-popping videos. Really, go on! ~Stef/editor-in-chief) It is like 100% more effective and satisfying than pore strips, and I love those.
I feel like I am getting a facial every week in the privacy of my own home. I cannot speak to the anti-aging benefits, as I have only tested the product for approximately one month so far.
Now, this is certainly a pricey device. It currently retails for $189 on QVC, with a Easy-Pay option. I suspect that the price is worth it. The device requires no future replacement pieces to be purchased, and if you add up the price of regular facials, you come out ahead here. I certainly would recommend the Le Mieux 4-in-1 Ultrasonic Anti-Aging Skin Perfecter to anyone looking to improve their complexion.
