Staying up to date with the latest skincare technology is tricky. There’s always new products, ingredients and devices hitting the shelves, so when I saw FOREO’s new Iris, I was a little sceptical about it. I love my FOREO Luna 2 facial cleansing device, so I was willing to give it a chance.
What Is It?
Inspired by lymphatic eye massages practised in Asia, this unique eye care device has been designed using innovative sonic pulsation technology, featuring two modes. A gentle ‘Pure Mode’ to replicate the feeling of a manual massage and a ‘Spa Mode’, which combines tapping and delicate pulsations for a professional beauty treatment experience. But let’s get to the benefits of The Iris.
What Does It Do?
Helps reduces dark circles & under-eye puffiness
Smooths fine lines, wrinkles & crow’s feet in the eye area
Dramatically improves the absorption & efficacy of your eye cream/serum
It has a compact, lightweight design suitable for travelling
It’s fully waterproof, easy to clean & quick to use
Features 8 intensity levels to suit everyone
Made from durable, ultra-hygienic silicone to prevent bacteria build-up
How To Use:
The device is super quick and easy to use - just one minute each morning and night, to be precise. It only takes an hour to recharge, and you get 140 uses per each full charge.
Place dots of your regular eye cream or eye serum under your eyes, and use the device to spread the product.
Step Two: Apply the device on the eye contour from the centre to the exterior, and under and above the eye. Use for 30 seconds on the eye contour.
Step 3: Repeat for the contour of your right eye. When a minute is up, you’re done!
What's Everyone Saying?
★★★★★ A great add on - Maura
"I'll start by saying this product in comparison to the other Foreo products isn't a MUST have. If new to Foreo, I'd start with the LUNA. But, since I loved the LUNA, I knew I had to try this. It's super relaxing on the eyes and I do feel like it helps reduce puffiness under my eyes with a cooling eye product on days I'm especially tired or sleep deprived."
★★★★★ Mini eye lift - Yvonne
"I love using this at night with my eye cream. I tend to just dab it on really quick so the Iris helps me take my time to really work in the product. I feel like my eyes are brighter in the morning. It's also a relaxing experience, kind of like a mini facial at home."
★★★★★ Another hit from Foreo - Edris
"Big fan of Foreo products, I’ve always liked their beautiful designs and smart features so I had to try the Iris too and it did not disappoint! The material feels so soft on my eyes and the massage feels so good. I use it in Spa mode because I have dark circles and deep wrinkles around my eyes (in my early 40s) and it has definitely decreased both. My eye serum also absorbs better after I use it. Very innovative and useful product!"
Why Try It?
If you suffer from puffy, tired eyes, I'd recommend giving The Iris
a go. The micro massage movements really can improve circulation in the eye area, helping to reduce puffiness and associated eye concerns, plus
it's like having a little facial at home every day!
