I always thought facial toning devices were a bit of a gimmick—until my coworker told me about her experience using the NuFace Trinity. She said that the device visibly lifted her brows and sculpted her cheekbones…and that was after just one use. That got me curious, but I still wasn’t quite ready to buy into the pricey trend. Then, I started seeing the Foreo Bear facial toning device all over my Instagram feed.
Everyone from influencers to beauty editors were posting about the palm-sized hot pink device, and after watching one especially convincing Instagram Story where a woman showed the visibly lifted effect it had on one side of her face, I was sold.
When my Bear arrived, I immediately broke it out of the box and charged it for a bit so that I could power it up and connect it to the Foreo app. To be honest, I was slightly annoyed at first (who wants to clutter their phone with another app?), but registering my device was easy—I just had to connect it to my phone via Bluetooth and snap a picture of the box’s barcode. Then it was time for the main event: attempting to tone my face.
