1 / ZOJIRUSHI FLIP TOP STAINLESS STEEL MUG

This was a last minute purchase at Bic Camera in Haneda Airport. Ever since I got this, I rarely use my S’well bottles. I like the flip-open lid (single hand to open or close) and the security of the safety lock if I’m putting it in a bag. It did experience some minor scratches in my bag the very first time I brought it to work but hasn’t had any other casualties since. I only use it to drink water and it is hand-wash only. It comes in 12, 16, or 20 oz. I have the largest size in the beige gold (SM-SE60-NZ).

Available at Amazon or Target (similar).

2 / FOREO UFO 2

My new toy and my first FOREO device — the FOREO UFO 2. If you like masking but don’t have a lot of time or want optimal results, the FOREO UFO device line provides results in a few minutes using ultrasonic vibrations, LED light therapy (don’t purchase it for this), thermotherapy, and depending on the model, cryotherapy. You can currently choose between the UFO mini, UFO mini 2, UFO, and UFO 2 (pricing low to high). It’s much easier to find deals on the older UFO mini and UFO models.

I chose the UFO 2 because it has cryotherapy and compatibility with all of their masks. Their masks have enough liquid for you to run it more than once at a time and the settings are all controlled by the app. I have yet to diy masks or cutting down sheet masks since I got a bunch of their masks on sale. The Farm to Face collection is also all natural. I plan on making the mister try it.

Where to find:

  • BeautifiedYou. The UFO 2 is a bit hard to find right now. They also have the other models, have a sitewide discount, and they give two boxes of masks with a device purchase. I got mine from here.
  • SkinStore. New models only, sitewide discount, and a box of masks with device purchase.
  • Foreo. Has bundles.
  • Nordstrom. Best return policy.
