Micro-Current Device (NuFace Review)

December 27, 2014

I wanted to take some time today to chat about micro-current facial devices for the skin. Micro-current treatments can be performed in the comfort of your own home to achieve the following benefits: improved muscle tone in the face and neck, lift jowls and eyebrows, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve facial circulation and lymphatic drainage, and much more. There are many options on the market, and I became very familiar with all of them when I worked as a skin specialist in the beauty industry. The NuFace is by far my favorite thus far. It’s the easiest to use, and I can see results both instantly and over time. This isn’t a surgical look, it’s a very subtle lift and tightening of the skin, which I much prefer. When used consistently in a skincare routine, it can yield amazing results . I have the NuFace Mini, which is the perfect size for me. I’ve had others in the past that were just too clunky and bulky. The treatment lasts about 7-20 minutes, as instructed on the box, and I try to do a treatment every night or every other night. You use conductive gel with the device, as this promotes good contact between the electrodes and the skin. You feel a slight tingle upon application as the electrodes go to work to firm up your skin. There are 3 levels of intensity so that you can work your way up. The gel is pretty inexpensive to replace once it runs out, or you can simply use Aloe Vera instead. I’ve been using this particular device for a few weeks now, and it’s by far my favorite micro current device. I find it to be the easiest to use out of the once I’ve tried. The biggest difference I have personally noticed is a more firm and healthy appearance to my skin. This device can be found  at or at If you have any further questions about the device, here’s a reference to the FAQ on the NuFace website.

Have you ever tried micro-current? What are your thoughts?





Hope you enjoyed this post.

xo, Rachel

    I never tried micro current for the skin. Could you tell a little more about the scientific background, as in why it is supposed to lift?

    Wondering if you purchased the Nu Face, Rachel, or if it was given to you for review by the company? It’s my opinion that you should state how you acquired an item in your reviews, just for honesty reasons.

      She did mention that it was given to her at the bottom of the post.

      I’m really interested in trying this. Can you do another follow up review Rachel?

    This is really interesting Rachel, thanks for sharing 🙂

    I received this for Christmas from my sweet mother! Can’t wait to try it. On another note, she was “honest”, thanked the company for letting her try it. Hope you and your beautiful family had a wonderful holiday Rachel ❤️

    I cannot believe that you didn’t approve my post, Rachel. I posted last week simply saying “thanks,” and asking if you could maybe include the device in a routine video in the future. May I ask, why? It’s not like I said anything inappropriate. You have lost a viewer and subscriber for good.

      Hi there! I do hope you stay a subscriber. I’ve been having a ton on issues with SPAM since I switched servers…Your comment surely was not overlooked on purpose. Hope you have a great day (=
