We don't know about you, but celebs have been putting us onto some really good beauty tips recently. (See: how Vanessa Hudgens achieved her fierce updo and how Pedro Pascal got his skin to glow for the Oscars.) Speaking of glowing skin, Kate Hudson was practically glistening on her recent press tour for Knives Out, and the actress let us in on her go-to secret: the NuFace Mini + device.

We first learned about Kate's love for NuFace in November 2022. While spilling the beans on beauty standards, Botox and her Christmas wish list, the actress told PureWow, "I love [the] little Mini, ‘cause you [can] get in the little cracks. I use it on my lips, or I use [it] on the side of the mouth, like that sort of jowl area, and then around the eyes."

She's not the only one who loves the device: When we tested the larger NuFace Trinity device ($339, also loved by Hudson) we found that it was super easy to use, with little beeps that cue when it's time to move on to the next area on your face. We also liked the NuFACE hydrating aqua gel (from $29), which helped for a smooth treatment with no minor shocks. After a few passes, we saw an instant lift—we're talking a lifted brow, sculpted cheekbones and diminishing forehead wrinkles—with the results lasting about two to three days. (BTW, this is the typical response of reviewers, who are also impressed with how it helps blur fine lines and wrinkles over time.)

So what's the difference between the NuFace Mini + and NuFace Trinity? The biggest difference is that the Trinity can be used with multiple attachments for red light therapy, which has shown promise in treating skin conditions such as acne, redness and fine lines, and targeted microcurrents for lips and eyes (sold separately), while the Mini is to be used on its own and is great for on-the-go use. The Trinity is also slightly more powerful. As Hudson explained, “I like the power it has, [my face] gets all tingly.”

The Mini has also been trending on TikTok, with users comparing the results of the device's microcurrent technology to a mini facelift, but way cheaper.

So how do these things work? Well, according to the manufacturer, the device's microcurrent three-depth technology mimics the body’s natural current (whatever that means) and is designed to help tone, lift and contour the face almost instantly.

The NuFACE Mini+ kit, valued at $309 and sold for $245, comes with the sandy rose-colored device, as well as a silk crème activator, aqua gel, application brush, power adapter and a user manual to get you started.

As recommended by the company, you should apply a "mask-like layer" of the activator in sections, then use the device to tackle those areas using glides and upward strokes for up to 20 minutes before it automatically shuts off. In short? You'll be giving a snatched look in no time.
