NuFace Review

Overview

NuFace is a device that has been created by Carol Cole Cosmetics. Carol Cole has been in business since 2000. The company was founded by its namesake, Carol Cole, who is a licensed esthetician and has been in the industry since 1983. Carol Cole Cosmetics produces several lines of skin care products, but for the purposes of this article we are focusing solely on the NuFace system. Unlike many products, the NuFace system is actually based on a device that delivers electricity to the skin, and this is supplemented by several other products.

Product Details

The NuFace Facial Toning System includes:

The NuFace Device: This is a micro current device that uses low level currents delivered in pulses to “lift and tone” the face and body.

The Dermal Gel: This gel is to be used while using the NuFace device. The product is made up of purified water, 1,2-propanediol, carboxylate polymer, citrate salt, FD and C Blue #1.

The Optomizing Mist: This is to be used just after using the NuFace device. Contains 5% Hyaluronic Acid and 40% Aloe Vera. The other listed ingredients are: Deionized Water, Rosemary, Chamomile, Glycerin, Sorbitol (skin tightening complex) Sodium PCA (moisturizer), Allantoin (healing properties), L-Ascorbic acid, Polysorbate 20 (conditioning agent) , Fragrance, Panthenol, Algae extract, Phenoxyethanol.

The Good

  • This product has the approval of the FDA.
  • The system looks easy to use. The website includes an instructional video for you to watch, as well as one that is shipped with your products.
  • The NuFace device itself has a one year warranty. So, if anything isn’t working right or you are sent a defective unit, they will replace it.

The Bad

  • The system itself costs over $300. This is expensive for what is considered the essentials. You can buy the items separately if you like, but it isn’t recommended.
  • There isn’t a lot of clinical research available. We aren’t sure if there’s been much, but nothing is listed on the website.
  • It seems as if you will have to use the NuFace system very frequently to keep up results.

The Bottom Line

The Micro current technology used by NuFace seems to be a hot ticket these days. With a lot of magazines and press putting ads in their pages, it seems to be the new thing. Who knows? $300 is a lot of money to spend on a fad though. So we’d like to see some clinical trials and long-term studies that NuFace really does its job. Similar electricity-based wrinkle fighting system have been popular in Europe since the 80’s, but there is little proof of effectiveness associated with these products. We do like the ease of the system: there isn’t a ton of things to put on your face, just be ready to hand over a chunk of change.
