If you were following along with me on social media this past weekend, you saw a lot of great highlights from the Beauty Tech Summit at CES, where I got a sneak peek at new fancy technology and devices in the beauty industry.
I’ve actually tried my hand at incorporating a new beauty device into my skin care routine recently. While it wasn’t on display at the convention, I think it’s definitely worth talking about as one of the next popular skin care gadgets.
The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System is a new anti-aging and skin toning device that is marketed to treat signs of aging quickly, effectively and painlessly. It’s been clinically proven to deliver glowing, healthy and younger looking skin without invasive treatments or endless trips to a clinic you’d normally have to go through for those results.
How does it work? The Conture stimulates your skin with isometric compression and ultra-low frequency sonic vibrations. It uses a gentle vacuum to lift and release the skin within the silicone cup on the nozzle, while the vibrations flow outward. There are three modes: Face, Neck and Mild, Mild being the lowest speed and Neck being the highest speed.
So I know what you’re thinking: But Miranda, why the heck do you need an anti-aging skin care device at the ripe age of 22? Girl, I hear you, BUT what really drew me in was the Conture’s user testimonials and how they boasted the biggest improvement in radiance & luminosity, and smoothness & evenness. These are areas that have seriously been lacking when it came to my winter skin, and I was at my wit’s end trying to remedy.
What had been particularly frustrating was that all of my favorite products seemed to have just stopped working for me. My tried and true routine just wasn’t cutting it to combat dullness, redness, acne and dry patches. Cue pulling my hair out. Being dermatologist tested and recommended, I didn’t have anything to lose by testing out the Conture.
I knew I wouldn’t see results in terms of anti-aging because of my age, but I was also pretty skeptical at how much of a difference this little face vacuum doohickey could possibly make. So I’ve used it for almost a month and well… it ended up being my skin care savior this season.
I started using the Conture on Mild, since my skin had been feeling super sensitive since November. After about a week, I started feeling improvements and switched to Face mode. After another week, I saw a really quick turnaround in my skin’s appearance. My breakouts were clearing up, dark spots slightly starting to fade, and the texture was improving immensely. I was being reunited with the skin I knew my routine was supposed to serve up.
The Conture’s role in it all? The device completely enhanced my skin’s absorption. My cleansers, creams and moisturizers were able to live up to their full potential and did their job better than ever. It seemed like the Conture also helped my skin cells’ turnover rate, as new blemishes seemed to heal faster and my skin has been getting consistently clearer and more luminous, with an even texture and tone to boot. I’ve also been dealing with recurring cystic spots on my cheeks which I’ve been targeting with the Conture; I’m happy to say that since the last time they went down, they haven’t come back!
While I wasn’t using Conture for its anti-aging benefits, the before-and-afters on their site are pretty impressive. They also have a serum, lotion and creme to use with the device if you’re targeting wrinkles and hoping to achieve firm skin. As something that is mostly advertised to treat aging skin, I’m stoked that its was still able to revive my own skin and help repair it after a particularly harsh winter for my face.
The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System isn’t cheap— you can try it for a month by paying $29.95, followed by 5 monthly payments of $59.99 (with a 60 day money back guarantee). However, I do have the scoop that there will be a TV special that will bring the price way down soon, so keep your eyes peeled! 😉
