Have you ever been to a spa? Like a real life, fancy spa? I myself have not. I have never been massaged. I have never been in a steam sauna.
Having received this Nova Ionic Facial Steamer
to review, I think I could live in a steam room!
I was not prepared to like this as much as I do! It feels great! When you follow the directions and position your face about 20 cm from the spout, the steam does not burn. You can feel the heat, you can feel the moisture, but you only feel it burn if you get too close.
As the steam goes over your skin you can feel a change happening. I assume it is the pores opening. I just know it feels great and is very relaxing.
The steamer is super easy to operate and you don't have to wait for a long time. The steamer comes with a small pitcher to add the water to the reservoir. You need to use distilled water to prevent the mineral and chemical build up that can occur with tap water. Simply add the distilled water and check the level on the indicator on the side to make sure you don't over-fill the reservoir. Plug it in and in about a minute the super fine steam mist will start coming out the adorable flower shaped spout.
If you sit so the steam is aimed at your chin area, it will go up and steam most of your face. I like to also include my neck in my treatments so I move my head a little to hit those areas.
This has been fabulous for me. I am a clown and steaming my face several days a week and especially the night before a clowning gig, it has improved my skin and made working with my greasepaint make up easier.
Steaming opens up the pores the pores so you can clean and unclog them. The steam is easily absorbed, moisturizing your skin. And that feels absolutely fabulous.
The steamer is not huge so it doesn't take up a lot of space. Since it is lightweight and so easy to use I can steam my face each day or ever few days without having to make a big production of getting a piece of complex equipment ready.
If you want to pamper you face with at-home spa treatments, the Ionic Facial Steamer from Nova
is a wonderful choice! It is available on Amazon for about $35. The price of one spa treatment allows you to do treatments at home at your own leisure!
