This unique 3-step deep cleansing system uses ion technology to ensure skin is cleaner and fresher than you've previously been able to achieve; working together with your body's natural ions, the YOSO Pro omits its own ions that help to enhance your skincare routine and performance of products. By simply touching the device to your face, the circuit is complete and the ion technology is activated: it really is that simple. The handheld device includes three functions (cleanse, moisturise and boost) and three intensity levels (low, medium and high) to ensure a result and experience that's targeted to your specific needs. There's no abrasive brush head, no complex vibrating circuits or heavy handheld device that becomes a chore to use; just a lightweight and easy to manage device that works practically without detection.
The 'cleanse' setting can be used after you've removed makeup and used a traditional cleanser (such as a balm or cream,) to ensure all traces of dirt, impurities and product are removed. It's essentially a toning function, as you can use a toner or micellar water applied to a cotton pad (attached over the titanium head of the device and secured in place with the plastic rings that are included.) Simply turn on the device, select 'cleanse' and the intensity of your choice, before massaging it across your face in upward motions for up to five minutes. Although initially it's a bit strange, after a few seconds it actually becomes incredibly relaxing and therapeutic; there's no dramatic movement or feeling, just subtle vibrations and pulses that help aid the process. Even though I was dubious about the amount of additional nastiness it would draw out of my skin, after only a couple of minutes I was amazed to see some serious gunk on the cotton pad. Gross, but definitely worth investing in a couple more minutes cleansing before bed to ensure your skin is looking and feeling fab.
In addition, the 'moisturise' function can be used to aid the absorption of your favourite product and leave your skin feeling incredibly hydrated. Like the 'cleanse' mode before it, all you have to do is turn it on and apply an amount of moisturiser to a cotton pad that's attached to the head of the YOSO Pro. Simply massage it into your skin, using the vibrations to help stimulate and invigorate, adding a touch more moisturiser every minute or so to really get the most out of it. The first time I used this I was amazed at how much product my skin absorbed and how there was very little residue left on the surface; considering it usually takes my skin an age to absorb even the smallest amount of moisturiser, it was clear to see the added benefit the ion technology within the YOSO Pro could bring. Every time I feel like I've had a mini facial - which is especially amazing because I simply don't have the time to arrange one most of the time!
What I love about this little gadget is the simplicity, speed and flexibility it brings to my skincare routine. I can sit in-front of the telly, or cosied up in bed, massaging my face and ensuring it's squeaky clean and incredibly moisturised... So I look my best the morning after with very little effort required. You don't need to invest in any expensive or fancy products, as you can use whatever you have within your repertoire, and it offers three functions in one. (The additional 'boost' function can be used once or twice a week for a further intense burst of ions, either after a face mask or with a night treatment, but isn't essential.) Although it's not amazing to look at, it does a great job and really has made a difference to my skincare routine. At £149.99 it is a huge investment in your skin, but if you know you need to make a change it's around the same amount as a great facial appointment - but with indefinite benefits that can be provided at your convenience. This really is a new approach to skincare and one I can see being a huge trend in 2015; I've no doubt it will be the 'next big thing'.
What do you think about the YOSO Pro? Would you add another step into your routine or invest in a gadget that could help you get the most out of your products?
This is a sponsored post on behalf of YOSO, but all opinions are my own and I genuinely like the product. (Just in case you were wondering!) It's available online priced £149.99.
