I don't know of physical stores where you could look at the gadgets like the Facemate. You also didn't mention where you're located. I know some department stores, like Nordstroms, carry the Clarisonic Brush, the Zeno, and now some light for skin gadgets. HTH.

If you have a Nordstroms near you, I would check there first. Also, they have good customer service and if you end up needing to make return, it may be easier for you that way (versus mail, etc.).

The drawbacks of local retail stores tend to be: limited product choices (e.g., the Marvel-Mini you have to buy 3 different items for 3 different LED colors whereas on Ebay you can get a device with all 3 colors for less than one of the Marvel Minis), probable higher price, etc.

Some things listed online at Nordstroms (call your local one to see if they have it at their store) include:

DermaVie Microdermabrasion $195

Marvel-Mini Rejuvenating Facial Light Therapy Blue: Natural Solution for Acne $225

Marvel-Mini Rejuvenating Facial Light Therapy Green: Natural Solution for Hyperpigmentation & Age Spots $225

Marvel-Mini Rejuvenating Facial Light Therapy Red: Natural Solution for Fine Lines & Wrinkles

CLARISONIC™ Skin Care Brush $195

Hope that helps. Let us know if you get anything and what you think of it. Love to hear people's gadget experiences.

hi, thanks for that. i wonder if the marvel mini is good for someone in their 20's? i guess the good thing about nordstroms is that you can return it! unfortunately i googled the mini and can't find any info on it. I'll let you guys know if i find anything in any of the stores. i'm kinda surprised sephora doesn't have anything

I don't know if Sephora carries any devices. I would invest in a LightStim www.lightstim.com or similar Ebay listed device before I would pay $225 for a one-colored Marvel-Mini. But, that's me. The LightStim has a good return policy. Or check out DPL device where you sit in front of panels.

Check out this seller's listings for 3in1 Photon LED Device Skin Rejuvenation Red Green Blue:
http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZsilkQ2esilver
IMO, for $39 + $15 S&H, I don't think you can lose. Idea At least one person on the forum bought this one. You could post on the thread
http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=22634&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
to ask for her for feedback.

Hi - About 4 weeks ago purchased a facemate off ebay from a vendor called a Beautiful YOu. Am very pleased so far - it has ionic cleansing
(no breakouts since I started using); ultrasound
and microcurrent. There are a few red LED lights in the device as well. The price was
right (about $125). Different technologies do different things for the skin so figure out
what you want for your skin first
(hyperpigmentation, lifting, acne problems
etc) do some research and then purchase.
Don't think too many of the dept stores have
caught up yet. DiPhx

Hi DiPhx!

I was looking at that one. I have very oily t-zone adult acne, huge clogged pores etc...but since I am in my *cough* mid-forties also am starting to see some expression lines along with fine lines (eyes) and some begining loss of tone. I did buy a Derma Wand which has done wonders for my pores and seems to cut emerging zits off at the pass...but am still interested in the device you bought.
What are the benefits you have seen so far?
The Baby-Q is out of my budget range for the moment so I am in the market for something more cost effective to address fine lines and general tone. I would love to hear your feedback on your purchase Smile

Hi stepfordwife - Okay the facemate - In the
cleansing mode, it must really cleanse well as
I've had very few breakouts since I started using the facemate and it gives my skin a nice glow after cleansing; the ultrasound mode
seems to plump up my skin and don't know if it's due to a deeper hydration or if the ATP cells are regenerating collagen. I had a couple deeper blue veins on my forehead and they seem to be less noticeable due to a
thicker skin; then I use the microcurrent mode
to lift the skin and I see a slight lifting
around the eyebrows. I use the LEd with both
the ultrasound and the microcurrent. I also
use an aloe vera gel with actives in it on both the ultrsaound mode and microcurrent mode.
I haven't seen it do too much for age spots or
lines around the eyes but the nasolabial lines are diminished. For the price, I'm very happy
with it. Don't think any home gadget will do as well as a professional model. I am in my
mid fifties so don't gulp yet - DiPhx

DiPhx your gonna make me pockets lighter I just know it! Very Happy

Seriously, thanks for getting back on the review of this product I already e-mailed the supplier (same one...I think was watching the same auction Wink ) about using gel vs not using gel. They said either way was fine but that some of their customers have reported using a half gel and half their own product which sounds interesting. If you are seeing results on your nasolabial lines I just might not be able to control myself from grabbing this gidgie gadget myself. I shall officially be closer to 50 than 40 at this next birthday and my biggest ageing issues are those babies. Guess I like to smile too much Very Happy
Are you getting any jowl toning? I am interested in your use of Aloe as after my exchange with the seller I was pondering using a mix of conductive gel, fresh aloe from one of my plants and HA. Not sure if that would work...but it sounds good to me. Have you used it on your neck? I have been working on losing some weight, ok, the same 10 pounds I work on every year, Laughing and was curious as to whether this might help with toning the neck area? I'll try anything once Smile Please keep us up with your progress. Thanks Smile

I purchased the Facemate ES-330 recently, and sort of freaked myself out with it on the first use. I used the 3mhz ultrasound function on my neck, with aloe vera (plant leaf derived) and got four or five 1/2 inch to inch long thin red welts (yikes!). They went away in a few days, but needless to say I'm reticent to use that function again with further research/discussion. These units seem interesting, and made well...but the instructions leave more than a bit to be desired. From what I have been able to research, they come from Taiwan, and are sold to distributors (ebayers and such) in lots, so no one really has much more info on them than the limited pamphlet that comes in the box,with its slightly comical english translations. I still hold hopes for this thing though. Would love to hear others two cents.

Hi stepfordwife - Yes I have used the facemate on my jowls and neck. When you use the microcurrent mode, you have to be careful how you move the device. In looking up how other
microcurrent devices are used, they are used in a lifting motion and not in circular motion.
When you ues upward strokes on the microcurrent, you have to move it in the
right places to lift the jowls. and yes,
I also use it on the neck - both the ultrasound
and microcurrent. I use the 3mhz on face and
neck and never go above the "5" level.
haven't thought about using a mixture of aloe
with regular lotion as the aloe dries rather
quickly in the heat out here so I spritz
water on the aloe when it dries. it may water down a cream if I have to spritz that mixture
as well. I can tell you I've seen small tightening on the neck as well (another problem
area for us mature ladies.) I defnitely think it is worth the investment - it makes my skin baby smooth too. Good luck! DiPhx

Hi, I'm new so cannot post a link but also misplaced my booklet. The website ib3health sells the Facemate and has very good instructions posted.
