How This Clever Cleansing Device Literally Changed My Life

Why merely cleanse, when you can ACTIVATE AND LIFT? MM road tests the hottest new find in skin tech – the Lumi Spa.

It’s not enough to merely cleanse, tone and moisturise in 2018. New innovations allow for dramatic skin renewal and deep cleansing to reveal smoother, softer skin with clever technology.

I fell in love with Nu Skin months ago when I was introduced to their lifting and firming hand-held device, the AgeLOC Galvanic Spa. It’s basically like having a salon at home! And now, they have come out with a device called LumiSpa, which is a game-changer when it comes to cleansing.


While I’ve always been quite partial to vibrating cleansing brushes, this gadget has let me reconsider my cleansing routine.

The LumiSpa is raising eyebrows for its fusion of rejuvenating, cleansing, renewing and lifting benefits in one, making it a far cry from being just another cleansing device.

It’s enjoyed a strong global presence, covered and reviewed in almost every fashion magazine from Bali to Bulgaria – and now it’s made its way to Bondi!

Just like us, in order to produce structural proteins, skin cells need to stay in shape. The LumiSpa vibrates on a lower frequency compared to other devices and stimulates 3D motions of skin’s cells.

Inspired by gene expression studies of skin protein production, the soft silicone anti-bacterial Treatment Head doesn’t damage the skin and has a unique oscillation mechanism that enables the device to move at the precise frequency needed to promote visible skin renewal.

At the same time, the LumiSpa gently—yet deeply— cleanses away dirt, oil, makeup, pollutants, and toxins through a pore-tightening action, honestly leaving my skin smoother and brighter after just one use.

What I love is that there is no damage to the skin, unlike some other cleansing brushes which can be a little coarse for my liking and can leave sensitive skins with scratches.

The LumiSpa comes with four customised Treatment Cleansers are scientifically formulated for precise interaction with your skin and have been designed to work with the counter-rotating motion and optimise the distribution of anti-ageing ingredients onto the skin.

I think it’s OK to use with other cleansers, but over time, there may be a marked difference by sticking to the recommended cleansers to assure that perfect lift and clean.

I’ve looked into the ingredients of the cleansers and they’re pretty phenom:

Ingredients such as Japanese Knotweed, Pomegranate Juice Extract, Milk Thistle Oil, Rice Bran and other incredible botanical extracts have a long history of multiple uses in natural and medicinal remedies and treatments. By improving blood flow and circulation, and imbibing the skin with nutrients and antioxidants, they help to improve the tone and quality of the skin by keeping the blood flowing and delivering nutrients and other materials necessary to keep the skin firm and elastic.

What I love about this device is that the Treatment Heads are more hygienic than brushes, antimicrobial to act against bacteria and easy to clean. In other words, they won’t fester in your shower!

the LumiSpa features two unique Treatment Head options to accommodate various skin types: the Normal Treatment Head is suitable for most skin types (and what I use), while the Firm Treatment Head delivers a more vigorous cleanse, most suitable for oily skin, or rougher, more resilient skin. It’s perfect for your boyfriend or BFF who shaves, suffers from breakouts or even ‘bacne’!

While the temptation is there to cleanse for longer than the recommended two minutes (the machine will beep to let you know when your time is up), it gives such a thorough clean that a double cleanse is just not necessary – you should see the YouTube clips of it removing drag make up, let alone anything marked ‘long wearing’! It’s like an instant disappearing act.

Many beauty devices come across my path, but very few cleanse daily environmental dirt and makeup, remove rough and dead skin, pump the pores to minimise their appearance, stimulate the skin’s building proteins and leave your skin invigorated, radiant and luminous in literally 2 minutes flat!

With these at-home, hand held Nu Skin devices, my bathroom is quickly becoming my own anti-aging lab – and I couldn’t be more pleased with both the time spent and the result.

Up the game on your cleansing and take your skin health to the next level in under 5 minutes a day – and have everyone convinced that you’ve had work done (without ever stepping foot out of the bathroom).
