no!no! MICRO - An Esthetician's Review

As a licensed Esthetician, I am always testing out new hair removal products. I was super excited to test out the no!no! MICRO since I've heard wonderful things. With its Thermicon technology, no!no! devices use heat to trigger not only the visible hair but the follicle which will slow down hair growth after consistent use.

FOREO Issa Review

From the brand that brought you silicone sonic skincare cleansing, FOREO is now venturing into the market of oral care with the launch of ISSA. ISSA is revolutionizing the electric toothbrush that has seemingly remained unchanged since its initial release during the 1960s. ISSA’s sonic pulse technology creates 11,000 high-intensity pulsations per minute for effective cleaning, while its silicone bristles are gentle enough for the most sensitive mouths. The Silicone Difference Unlike conventional manual toothbrushes and electric toothbrushes, the ISSA brush head is completely comprised of silicone. Silicone is non-porous, meaning it is not a hospitable atmosphere for bacteria to...
