The UFO 2 vs UFO 2 Mini

Let’s be completely honest , both the UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini are irresistible at first sight, but which device actually suits your needs?

There is no corner I will leave unturned in this post. Let’s get right into it.

Ufo 2 vs UFO 2 Mini review

The Foreo UFO 2 and UFO 2 design and size

When it come down to packaging they have exactly the same type of packaging and inclusive accessories.

The true difference lies in the design of the actual devices:

Although at first sight the UFO 2 Mini looks smaller than the UFO 2, it actually isn’t, the two devices are actually the same exact size. Both the devices measure 72.5mm x 31.4 mm.

It is the metallic front feature which gives the illusion that the UFO 2 Mini is smaller when in fact it isn’t.

The difference in the front metallic feature is greatly noticeable, the UFO 2 has a large bronze metallic circular feature whereas the UFO 2 Mini has a small one offering more of a ultra hygienic silicon area.

Both devices offer a universal power button which makes them super easy to operate.

Also in terms of weight the UFO 2 weighs 146.2g whereas the UFO 2 Mini weighs 99g. The UFO 2 is 1/3 heavier. Bear in mind that they are light devices though.

The back of the devices where the attachment ring is, it’s identical. I love that it is easy to remove.

Ufo 2 vs UFO 2 Mini comparison

The devices come in the same colour options: pearl pink, fuchsia and mint. Whereas this option isn’t available in their predecessors.

The battery and usage difference

When it comes to the battery, there is a slight difference:

  • The UFO 2 has Li-Ion 1200 mAh 3.7 V
  • The UFO 2 Mini has Li-Ion 1050 mAh 3.7 V

Although the UFO batteries differ in strength you get the exact same amount of uses, which is 40 uses based on 90 second treatments.

The UFO 2 has a stronger battery, due to the fact that it offers further tech.

Both of the devices last 180 days on standby.

The UFO 2 vs UFO 2 Mini technology

With the UFO 2 and the UFO 2 Mini, Foreo has taken the devices to new heights, the devices now have:

Ultra fast thermo-therapy

The UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini are now able to instantly heat up, unlike it predecessors. This will ensure you get the most out of your thermo-therapy in the 90 second treatment.

Overall the thermo-therapy treatment ensures your skin is ready to absorb deeply all the UFO power activated mask ingredients.

T-Sonic pulsations

Both devices include the T-sonic pulsations which besides giving you a relaxing spa experience, they also ensure skin renewal, greater skin absorbtion and also stimulate skin blood microcirculation.

Ufo 2 vs ufo 2 mini

Full spectrum LED lights

Both devices have had a major upgrade in LED light, they are both able to operate on 8 different LED wavelengths.

To make it easier for you I have devised a table of the benefits of each LED available so that you can really get the best out of your UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini.

Ufo 2 ufo 2 mini LED benefits quick guide

Previously the UFO had 5 LED lights and the UFO Mini had 3 LED light options! So the UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini by Foreo Sweden had a major upgrade.

This takes the devices to a whole new level because each wavelength has different and extensive benefits for different skin concerns. Making it more suitable to every single person.

If you want to know exactly which LED light provides which result, scroll up to the LED light section at the top of my post.

Overall, these features ensure a superior power mask treatment.

But let’s now focus on the main difference between the UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini, in terms of technology.

It is to no surprise that Foreo have developed the ultimate power mask treatment device, the UFO 2 is a super power!

The UFO 2 unlike the UFO 2 Mini has an extra treatment incorporated which is the cryotherapy treatment.

The cryotherapy treatment ensures that skin is tightened and pore size is reduced.

The benefits of using the Foreo UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini

Ufo 2 vs ufo 2 mini review

Both devices offer superior benefits that are unique on the global market, these include:

Fast and easy LED light treatment

Unlike a conventional sheet mask treatment which lasts over 20 minutes, this LED light treatment lasts only 90 seconds.

If like me you struggle to persevere if something is too complicated or too lengthy, the UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini are the ideal power mask treatments for you.

Time will certainly not be an issue! 90 seconds is ideal for someone with a fast paced life or with commitment issues.

Increased absorption

The LED power mask devices allow for the skincare ingredients within the power activated mask deep into the skins layers.

Rejuvination of the skin

Pore size is reduced visibily and moisture is locked in efficiently.

Spa inspired experience

The facial massage will be soothing and relaxing. Bring the spa to the comfort of your home.

Mask ingredient even distribution

Unlike the air pockets that conventional sheet masks can create upon application, the UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini are able to distribute the power activated mask evenly.

The only benefit that the UFO 2 and UFO 2 Mini differ in is the cryotherapy one, hence pore minimisation, skin tightening and toning.

My experience with the Foreo UFO 2 vs UFO 2 Mini

I can see why the UFO 2 by Foreo Sweden classifies as a superior mask power treatment!

I use it on alternating days, morning and evening! But did you know that you can use it every day?

I use the Foreo Make my Day Hydrating UFO activated power mask in the mornings and the Foreo Call it a Night revitalising and nourishing mask before bed.

The UFO 2 is sophisticated thanks to the multitude of treatments it has to offer.

The thermo-therapy is surprisingly relaxing, you can feel the device heat up just enough to feel incredible.

You can also feel the relaxing T-Sonic pulsations which I thoroughly enjoy.

Last but not least, the cryotherapy treatment, where the device applies cold to your skin, felt like a sensational way to end the 90 second treatment.

Throughout the corresponding LED lights will be activated depending on the mask you use.

With the UFO 2 LED treatment device I noticed that:

  • my skin’s redness has lessened
  • my pores look smaller
  • my skin looks more tight and toned
  • my complexion is overall more uniform
  • my skin is glowing
  • my breakouts have improved, as well as all the small spot scars.

Through continued use I was impressed with how radiant, young and free from breakouts my skin was.

I can’t just choose one particular feature that I loved best, because I love the UFO 2 in its entirety.

I love to use the UFO 2 power mask LED treatment especially even I’m in need of some TLC and when I feel like truly talking my skin to the next level.

When it comes down to the UFO 2 Mini by Foreo Sweden, I feel exactly the same. My skin looks supple, glowing, moisturised, clear and more youthful.

Ufo 2 vs ufo 2 mini before and after

You will find that with the UFO 2 Mini you will not reap any of the cryotherapy benefits.

Other than this one feature the UFO 2 Mini is exceptional.

I also recommend using it after exercising to give your face some serious TLC.

The final verdict the UFO 2 vs UFO 2 Mini

All in all, both of the LED light treatment devices are superior thanks to being able to operate on a full spectrum LED light.

This ensures that you have the maximum amount of skin benefits as well as make it suitable for all skin types.

The fact that the treatment is so fast will help you achieve better results as there is no excuse for not doing your power mask treatment.

Ufo 2 review

The thermo-therapy has been sped up and you can achieve more benefits this way within the short time frame.

The T-sonic pulsations will not only allow you to have a wonderful relaxing experience but they will also help the UFO power activated masks be absorbed deeper into the skin.

This takes us to the main deciding points if you are looking for a device that also includes cryotherapy, the UFO 2 will be better suited to your needs.

However, if you are either not a fan of cold or pores and tightening are not a skin concern of yours or you prefer to spend less, you would be better suited to the UFO 2 Mini.

Ufo 2 mini review

The other deciding factor in the UFO 2 vs UFO 2 Mini battle, could well be the devices aesthetic design. If you like more of a surface area of the ultra hygienic silicon design rather than the metallic front feature, the UFO 2 Mini may be more suited to your needs.

I can guarantee that either way your skin will look noticeably plump, radiant, more firm, more uniform, lessen dark circles, soothe sunburns, reduced in fine lines and breakouts. The benefits are endless!

Now it’s your time to invest in your skin, providing your skin with the ultimate facial treatment.

      It’s actually the one Foreo device which is my favourite. The skin improvement is really noticeable. I’ve never been one of those who feel comfortable without foundation on but my skin has improved so I actually feel more confident.

    That’s a very detailed review. Very nice. I actually purchased UFO 2 recently. Foreo’s customer service were quite nice to explain to me how the LED therapy actually works, as I was wondering if 90 seconds were enough. So, since this device is meant to be used several times a week, this makes this shorter exposure effective just as well, plus you can do it conveniently at home. I absolutely love their sheet masks. The ingredients used are amazing and the way Foreo combines them makes sense.

      My experience has been positive, I have to agree with you. Its actually my favourite Foreo device because I’ve seen such an improvement in my skin. Especially with my breakouts, it really helps.
