Nu Skin LumiSpa First Impressions

I think just being in my 30s has made me take a serious look at my skincare routine. I find myself asking questions like, “Is this even working?” I want smoother-looking skin, and of course, to rid my face of those annoying blackheads!

The Nu Skin LumiSpa was something I started looking into months ago, however, it is pretty pricey! The ageLOC LumiSpa iO device itself is priced at $245. Throw in the face wash (specific to your skin type), and it’s $255 for the “kit.” I say “kit” in quotes because it doesn’t even include a stand (I was in denial). So, I really took some time, and did a ton of research on whether it would be right for my skin type and if it truly does work.

Just around the time I was ready to bite the bullet and make the big purchase, Nu Skin had an after-Labor Day sale – I was ready! But they also had a special deal if you signed up to be an affiliate – which was NOT my plan at all. I go into more detail about this and my thoughts on MLMs in my full first impressions YouTube video, but the main takeaway here is that I specifically joined the affiliate program in order to get that special deal.

Okay, let’s get right into it..

Does the LumiSpa work? aka, it is effective?

I’ve been using the LumiSpa for nearly three weeks now and I’m happy to say it’s actually quite effective. While I understand it can take your skin/body three months to fully see the effect of a new routine/diet, the things I noticed first were the little blackheads around the corners of my mouth disappearing. These are blackheads so small and close to the surface, so I’m glad I pretty much got instant results in that sense.

I’ve also noticed the LumiSpa truly does lift makeup and face grease away. Please understand, this is not a makeup-removing device, so when I say it lifts makeup away, I’m talking about the leftover makeup on my face, that I didn’t get off with my hands and cleanser.

Here are some screenshots of a few tests I did with the LumiSpa:

Half face test

I used a makeup wipe to remove my makeup and didn’t wash my face in the shower (I don’t think I used enough cleanser in this try).

Half face test

I used a makeup wipe to remove my makeup and washed my face in the shower with cleanser on the other half of my face.

Cleansing balm to remove makeup, no shower

The next morning, no shower

I also want to mention, every time I’ve used my LumiSpa and used a toner on my face – the cotton round is still white! This never happened before the LumiSpa – so I guess I just sucked at cleaning my face.

What I hope to see in the next three months

While I’m happy with the results I’ve seen from the LumiSpa so far, I’m excited to see what’s in store for the next three months. I really hope to see my texture improve, my face continue to look even clearer, and just less acne and blackheads in general.

Should you get it?

I think the LumiSpa can be beneficial for anyone looking to get a deeper cleanse in their skincare routine. However, I do think those who are prone to blackheads will be super happy with the results, because the LumiSpa really does push out blackheads and whiteheads, with ease.

My face never feels irritated after using this twice a day – it only takes two minutes, and that’s the best part! It’s also so easy to use. It’s similar to using the Sonicare toothbrush, where it will vibrate to alert you when it’s time to switch to another section of your face (which Is divided into four quadrants).

I personally don’t think the Nu Skin website is the easiest to use, so I’m linking a few kits with specific cleanser types. I will link one kit with the stand, but let me know if you’re looking to get one in a specific color!

LTK Fall Sale 2023

The LIKEtoKNOWit Fall Sale officially began today! If you’ve been planning to shop this sale, you probably already know what you’re purchasing (and maybe already did so!). If you haven’t shopped yet, then my blog post might be helpful to you!

The LTK Fall Sale is an exclusive in-app (LTK) event, featuring several different brands (I feel like a lot of them are always part of any LTK Sale, including Abercrombie and Fitch and Aerie). The sale is between 15% to 30% off. Sincee this is an exclusive in-app only sale, be sure you’re following me on LTK!

Those brands include:

I won’t be making collages for every brand participating in this sale, but I can share my favorite Abercrombie jeans! I’ll link my favorite denim in the images below:

What did I buy?

I personally haven’t been looking for anything in particular and really wasn’t planning to shop this sale. However, I did see this denim midi skirt from Abercrombie and thought I would give it a try since they seem to be the latest rage these days. I’ll share a try-on of it when it comes in, on my Instagram account.

Since this blog post is going up on a Thursday night, I’ll be sharing an Abercrombie denim try-on sometime tomorrow. I love see try-ons of clothes I’m planning to buy – it really helps me see how the fit is, especially if it’s another petite content creator doing the try-on – which I always appreciate!

Sizing in Abercrombie jeans

I almost forgot to mention this! When it comes to Abercrombie jeans, I typically get my true size (denim shorts too!). However, when it comes to high-waisted jeans, I’ve recently started going up one size – I’ll share the jeans I did this with in my IG try-on tomorrow.

Happy shopping!
