To be honest, I wasn’t looking forward to reviewing the True Glow Warm Steam and Cool Mist Facial Sauna, I really just wanted one of the mirrors (I don’t have a mirror and my mom complains about us not having one when she visits, I know I should just buy one but I don’t use them and they become some type of weapon in my house). The product looks nice but it had all these compartments and instructions that I thought were going to be confusing. I am more of a visual learner and when I have to read instructions my eyes glaze over. I need to get over that. The instructions where clear and concise. I lost the original set that came with the unit and the instructions are available online right there with all the information about the product on Conair’s website. Once I calmed down and used the product all I had to do was take the cup provided and fill one chamber with water and turn the machine one. Voila!
It takes about 3 to 4 minutes for the steam to work and once it does take the time to enjoy it on your face and neck. I took the 12 minutes I set aside the first time to feel the steam opening my pores and listened to the steam as it escaped into the main chamber. It was quite soothing. The cool mist option cools down your skin and close your pores. My best piece of a advice is to use your favourite moisturizer. I used Clarins Extra Firming Day. It has this light floral scent which just added to the experience of using the Warm Steam and the light scent stayed with me longer (I swear I could still smell it over an hour later). My face and neck felt softer and supple and I just loved that. I had to stop myself from constantly touching my face.
If you love facials but don’t have time/money to get them regularly and have a dedicated skin routine this may be a really good product for you. The Warm Steam and Cool Mist Facial Sauna is VERY easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow. The chord is quite long which makes it portable and you can use it wherever you like. The only part of the design I didn’t like where the nobs and markings. The nobs (outside silver component sets for sauna or mist and small pink nob sets the time) didn’t feel right with the design and the markings were hard to read because they were in white and very small. I can read them now but it a couple of years I could see myself struggling.
I’m happy I received the product to review. I’ve used it once a week for 3 weeks on my face and neck and it’s a nice way to unwind.
