I’ve been a bit addicted to trying beauty tech lately, and the NowMi Pro is my latest obsession.
When I was approached by NowMi to try their NowMi Pro Facial Skin Oxygenation Device, I was immediately intrigued by its dual usage. Not only is the NowMi Pro a daily sonic cleansing device, but it double downs as a weekly at-home vitamin C oxygen facial treatment. You all should know by now, just how much I love vitamin c in my skincare routine, so needless to say I was on board!
NowMi Pro as a daily cleansing device
I have tried other sonic cleansing devices in the past but always found them awkward to hold and use. The first thing I loved about using the NowMi Pro was how ergonomic it is in the hand. It emits 6000 sonic pulses per minute, which is what allows the cleanser to really get deep down into your pores, making it 6 times more effective than regular cleansing. If you look closely, you’ll see these tiny silicone micro fingers – that’s where you put the cleanser – and it gently massages the product into the skin. Not only does it feel nice, but it works incredibly well! The first night I used my NowMi Pro, I noticed a couple of breakouts starting to pop up on my chin and the next morning they were completely gone (instead of turning into angry red and whiteheads!).
The NowMi Cleansing Gel is gentle, yet effective. It leaves my skin super soft and smooth and just barely suds, so I don’t have to worry about any stripping or drying that would come with something foaming. Ingredients to note are Vitamin E, B3, B5, Dead Sea Salts and Niacinamide.
NowMi Pro as a weekly vitamin c facial
This is where NowMi Pro gets really unique to me; When you flip over the device, there is a little circular divot that you can pop one of the NowMi vitamin c effervescent tablets into. You apply a generous dollop of the hyaluronic acid lubricant gel which immediately begins to oxygenate the tablet. You then massage this gel/vitamin c tablet around your face, while the 6000 sonic pulsations help exfoliate, smooth and hydrate your skin like you just stepped out of a fancy spa oxygen facial.
This process takes 3-5 minutes, and my face feels baby soft after! I focus on trouble areas where I am noticing the early signs of ageing, have some hyperpigmentation or need a little extra smoothing. It’s important to keep adding the lubricant as you need it so that there is a good layer on the face to really help the effervescent tablet fizz up.
The NowMi Pro is incredibly lightweight, rechargeable and super easy to clean, making it easily fit into my busy mom routine. Vitamin C, as well all know, is amazing for the skin, helping it regenerate, protecting it against environmental factors like pollution, and battling pigmentation issues from the sun, acne, etc. I’ve never seen a device that does this at an at-home level, and I love that it only takes a few extra minutes once a week to really get my skin glowing and super smooth. My makeup applies noticeably better after using it (I took the week before Christmas off and I definitely noticed a difference!).
NowMi Pro uses the same science-backed skin oxygenation technology of the Oxygeneo Treatment that has been used in professional clinics since 2013. I’ve really enjoyed using it, and feel like it’s really been effective on my dull, winter skin. I only really have one wish, and that would be for the device to notify the user every minute so you can easily keep track of how long treatment is. A simple pulse or beep would save me the mild annoyance of having to set a timer or keep track in my head!
