NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device Review

As part of my Upgraded Morning Skincare Routine (you can check out that article, here), back in April I but the bullet, so to speak, and purchased an Anti-Aging Device: The NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device!

The two most popular NuFACE devices are the NuFACE Mini (above) and the NuFACE Trinity (below). Here’s the NuFACE Trinity for comparison:

I’ve been using the NuFACE Mini for about 2 months and I’m super excited to share my results with you! (You can also checkout my Video Unboxing of the NuFACE Mini, below.)


How does the NuFACE Mini work?

If you’re not familiar with the NuFACE devices, they are FDA cleared microcurrent skin toning devices that apply microcurrent technology to the muscles of your face. They help to build collagen, contour and tone your face as well as improve fine lines and wrinkles.


What’s the difference between NuFACE and NuFACE Mini?

The NuFACE Trinity has interchangeable treatment attachments.


The NuFACE Mini has a standard attachment that does not detach.


What comes with the NuFACE Mini?

The NuFACE Mini kit I purchased includes: The NuFACE Mini Petite Facial Toning Device. The NuFACE Hydrating Primer Gel (2 fl oz). A user’s manual. A quick start guide (routines), and a power adapter. It also comes with a 1-year manufacturer warranty.


You also need to purchase the NuFACE Hydrating Primer Gel so your NuFACE device glides across your skin, comfortably, and to conduct the microcurrent properly.


You only use a pea size amount for each side of your face (when applied to a damp face).


There are a couple of different sizes available. This is the one I purchased, which will last for over a year:

How often do you use the NuFACE Mini?

You use it just once a day, either morning or at night.


NuFACE recommends using it 5 times a week for the first 60 days. After 60 days, or after your desired results are met, they recommend using it 2-3 times a week for maintenance.


I’m currently using it in the morning, 7 days a week.


Where do you use yhe NuFACE Mini?

That depends on what you want to address. There are many different treatment applications. You can do a 5-minute facial-lift or a more advanced 20 minute procedure. (Specific tutorials are included in the quick start guide in your kit.)


How I use the NuFACE Mini?

After I used it for a couple of days, I decided on my plan of action:


I use it on my jaw & cheek, on my jowls, on my nasolabial folds, and on my brows.


My morning routine takes me 8 minutes to complete.








Does NuFACE really Work? How soon will you see results?

NuFACE states that most users will see results after the first treatment, but not all.


Also, as with any anti-aging skincare practice, consistency is key! You get the best overall results with continued and consistent use.


My results using the NuFACE Mini

I started using my NuFACE Mini the first week of May 2020 and I noticed results the first time I used it!


NuFACE suggests that you only do one side of your face at a time so you can see any results right away. So, that’s what I did!


After I treated my right eyebrow, I noticed it looked lifted and higher than it had been prior.


Now, after using my NuFACE Mini for about 2 months, and tweaking my routine a bit, I notice both of my eyebrows look higher, my nasolabial folds are fuller, the skin on my cheeks looks tighter, and my jowls look firmer.


That’s a win for a very small investment in this anti-aging device in my book!


Technically, according to the usage recommendation by NuFACE, I could go down to “maintenance mode” and just use it 2-3 times a week.


Yeah, I’m not ready to do that just yet. I am LOVING the results I’m seeing and want to continue to see improvement.


The NuFACE Mini is completely safe and will not damage the skin. The more you use it, theoretically, the better the results. So that’s why I will continue using it every morning, 7 days a week!


Here I show you everything that’s included in the NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Kit.

Parting Thoughts…


If you’re over 50. If you have years of sun damage. If you have fine lines and wrinkles that are driving you nuts. If you just don’t like the way your skin is starting to look with age, give one of the NuFACE devices a try. Either the NuFACE Trinity or the NuFACE Mini. I’ve definitely seen my skin benefit from using it, and it’s only been 2 months. I can’t wait to see what my skin looks like in 2 years!
