Foreo Bear: Detailed Review and How To Use

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Philippines


Nothing beats having some well-deserved “me-time” every now and then. For me, it entails some of my favorite things to do like retail shopping, reading, massage, scrubs, salon trips and facials. 

Our skin’s condition shows so much about our health status. It may be the source of joy and even frustration at times. I know the importance of proper skincare and so I miss having facials done on my skin. Having facials done thoroughly cleanses my skin giving it a tighter, brighter, smoother feel after each procedure.

When the pandemic hit, my usual facial service is now out of the question for me. It is hard to risk myself and others by going outside and have it done just for the pleasure of it. I am already exposed enough in my line of work handling COVID19 patients that I do not want to add to the problem.

It is a good thing that there are now more options available that I can do in the comforts of my own home. Ever since I first tried using FOREO devices, I have had the urge to collect them all! I know. I know. I have been using the LUNA PLAY PLUS, UFO MINI and recently, I was able to try the UFO . These devices helped me achieve the clean and glowing skin that I wanted without going out for a facial spa. To make it more interesting and exciting, FOREO welcomes the newest addition to their line called the BEAR. 

The BEAR intrigued me when I first heard about it since I know how effective FOREO products are. I immediately wanted to test this BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN (17,600php) because it is known to provide facial fitness! This is my first time to encounter a portable device that works like a facial machine used in spa services. It delivers microcurrent and T-sonic pulsations targeting to exercise more than 65 muscles of our face and neck!

In my case, I feel that I am going through premature aging due to stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, environmental factors etc. that my skin is showing signs of distress. As time passed that I disregard my skincare regime, I am noticing changes and I think my skin is starting to sag on some areas. More than ever, I know that I needed to focus on stimulating the muscles of my face and neck. That is why I am so happy to discover BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN because I can do my own facial routine anytime and anywhere!


1. Download the FOREO SWEDEN App on your mobile device and register your BEAR. 

2. Make sure that your BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN (17,600php) has a charge. It can be recharged by using the USB cable that comes with the device. 

3. When all is ready, make sure that your face is clean and dry. 

4. Apply conductive serum on your skin before using the BEAR. FOREO has its own conductive serum, Serum Serum Serum (3,920php). You can also use other serum as long as it is gel-based. 

5. Using the device, you can follow the instructions on the app on how to use it around your face by watching the animated video.

6. After the treatment, sanitize your BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN device. This device is waterproof and easy to clean with mild soap and water but you can also try the Silicone Spray by FOREO for cleansing. 


BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN is the most electrifying facial fitness innovation ever! How convenient is it to simply do my own facial in a matter of minutes in the comfort of my own home, in my comfy pajamas and fluffy robe? It is so portable that I can easily take it along with me wherever I go because of its size! I can honestly say that it packs a punch for such a tiny device. It is no wonder that FOREO is known to be a high-end beauty technology company ever since it was founded in 2013.

The BEAR comes with a stand, USB charger, one sachet of FOREO'S Serum Serum Serum and a cute pink pouch to match its bright fuchsia body. Bear features superior microcurrent and T-Sonic pulsations that tighten and firm the skin for a youthful, contoured complexion. If you feel that the Bear is still too big for you, they also have the BEAR MINI.

There are a few differences between the Bear and Bear Mini. 

The BEAR MINI is smaller, the routine of the device targeted, the intensity level choices is lesser compared to the regular BEAR and lastly, it comes in Lavender and Pearl Pink. Bear in mind (pun intended) both of these devices are the only at-home microcurrent device that feature Anti-Shock treatment - a unique integrated system that eliminates any chance of the microcurrent shocking your skin, making them the safest microcurrent device in the world.

On my first try, I was not expecting the microcurrent that I felt with the device. I set it at the highest intensity and was surprised by its power. As of writing this, I am still using the Level 5 up to 10 setting. You can control the levels via the Bear itself or via the app. I suggest you work yourself up gradually as you adjust to its intensity level. As you get used to it, you can easily adjust your favored intensity from Levels 5 to 25.

I understand the fear of electrocuting yourself when it comes to this but do not let it intimidate you. The Anti-Shock System which scans and measures skin's resistance to electricity, automatically adjusts microcurrent intensity to maintain a steady quality of treatment for maximum safety and comfort will definitely assuage any fear or apprehension when it comes to using the FOREO BEAR. This Ultra-Smart Sensors scan and measure at a rate of 100 times per second and adjusts intensity in just 0.002 seconds. 

The microcurrent that I felt reminded me of the expensive facial treatments that I was able to try before. This process stimulates my skin to be toned. It also activates a gentle T-sonic pulsation that massages my face and neck. The experience from the BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN is different from the UFO that I am used to for relaxation because with Bear, my skin feels like it has undergone a real workout. The microcurrent's stimulation had me feeling energetic. 

BEAR is lightweight and easy to grasp. It does not slip from my fingers or hands and the two ultra-smooth bear-like ears move smoothly over my skin without any rough tugging or pulling. I appreciate how ergonomic it was as it smoothly moved over my facial curves without pain. 

For those nearing the age that requires anti-aging products - this device is important. I am almost halfway near 40s and I can already see that my skin is not as how it looked during my youth. The BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN will help my skin be toned, firm, and tight as it helps sculpt my skin as well. The additional T-sonic pulsations will help my skin enhance the product absorption of the products that I use. 

As a reminder when it comes to skincare, whatever you apply to your face, you do the same for your neck. As I finish my Bear treatment on my face, I then repeat the process for my neck. 

After my first night of use, I did not see any immediate change. However, I did notice that my skin is fresher the next day and that my skin is a little oily. I can safely assume that my skin was able to absorb more of the products that I used from the night before because my skin is usually on the dry side so it was something really new for me. 

As I continue to use it for almost a month now, I can definitely see the improvement of my skin in terms of radiance. I have this subtle glowing skin specially on my cheeks! Something that I have been missing for quite some time already. My favorite area to do the treatment is along my cheekbones, my jawline, and forehead where I noticed my skin to be most sagging. This is my favorite feature of the Bear - to target the microcurrent onto my jawline. 

The FOREO'S Serum Serum Serum also helped in contributing to my skin's improved radiance. This serum contains antioxidant power of squalane and hydrating hyaluronic acid for smooth, younger-looking skin. It is also free from phenoxyethanol, parabens, disodium EDTA, allergens, alcohol, fragrance, and mineral oil. 

I am sharing with you my before and after photos after a month of use. I can see it personally as well as some random comment from people teasing me that I looked “blooming” I do believe that a religious skincare regimen with FOREO greatly contributed to my skin’s continuous upward health condition. (Observe my side photos, my jawbone is more pronounced after a month of use.)

The BEAR improved my routine more than ever because I can now replace my facial spa with this at home. BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN is definitely worth the investment specially if you already want to skip having facials done outside like I do! 

Armed with my FOREO favorites consisting of FOREO LUNA, FOREO UFO and FOREO BEAR, premature aging, dull and sagging skin will definitely be taking a backseat from now on.

Remember, there is no instant cure to beauty, and definitely no magical way to stop aging, but with continued use of effective products and well researched devices such as BEAR by FOREO SWEDEN, FOREO LUNA, and UFO, it can definitely help and assist us in improving our skin’s health daily.
