FOREO BEAR™ Mint
Smart Microcurrent Facial Toning System
With a variety of microcurrent facial workouts, BEAR is your pocket-sized personal skin trainer and antiaging at home facial treatment. Glide the microcurrent spheres over your skin to build collagen, repair elastin & tighten your face via electrical currents that mimic your body’s own natural processes. BEAR features the patented Anti-Shock System™ – making it the world’s safest microcurrent device. Advanced sensors measure your skin’s resistance to electricity then automatically adjust the intensity to eliminate any chance of shock. Never use BEAR or any microcurrent device without a conductive serum, gel or cream. Foreo recommends their advanced SERUM SERUM SERUM.

Please read the Warning For Optimum Safety before purchasing and using the Bear device. SkinMiles does not take responsibility for any incorrect use of the Bear devices or failure to follow the How To Use instructions below. Not to be used if you are pregnant or have any existing medical conditions such as epilepsy, a haemorrhagic disease, cancer, tumours, or perceptual disturbance, or if you have any implanted medical device or any other electronic instrument or body aids!
BEAR™ is safe and gentle enough to use every day, either morning or night. We recommend using your BEAR™ once in a 24-hour period, for 3 minutes per treatment. BEAR™ must be completely dry before starting your microcurrent treatment.
It is recommended that IEC60950 standard power suppliers are used to charge the device. Before charging, make sure that the plug and socket are completely dry. Failure to do so may result in electric shock, short circuit, or fire.
Dry your BEAR™ then clean & dry your face carefully so there is no remaining residue. (Any oil on your face will deflect the microcurrent, making it ineffective.) Massage SERUM SERUM SERUM over all the areas you wish to treat until fully absorbed.
Press the button to activate BEAR’s microcurrent. The lights beneath the button indicate the microcurrent intensity. To change the intensity, quick-press the button once for each level. Turn off T-Sonic™ action by double-pressing the button. Access a wider range of microcurrent intensities via the app.
Lightly press both metallic spheres to your face then gently glide them across your face & neck. Both microcurrent spheres should touch your skin at all times. Glide BEAR™ slowly in an upward motion with light pressure for best results.
Once you finish your treatment, press & hold the button for 3 seconds to turn off the device. Apply any other skincare products of your choice, if desired.
Always clean BEAR™ thoroughly after use. Wash the metallic spheres and silicone surface with water and soap, then rinse with warm water. Pat dry with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth or towel. After use, FOREO recommend spraying the device with FOREO’s Silicone Cleaning Spray and rinsing with warm water for optimal results.
NOTE: Never use cleaning products containing alcohol, petrol or acetone, as they may irritate the skin and damage the silicone.
BEAR features the patented Anti-Shock System™ – making it the world’s safest microcurrent device. Advanced sensors measure your skin’s resistance to electricity then automatically adjust the intensity to eliminate any chance of shock.
FOREO’s patented T-Sonic™ pulsations extend deep into your pores to increase circulation, eliminate toxins & ease facial tension, resulting in smoother, softer, glowing skin.
BEAR’s ergonomic shape perfectly fits all facial curves & contours. Fashioned from ultra-hygienic silicone, BEAR & BEAR mini promise deep, spa-level treatments as well as up to 90 uses per USB charge, with no additional attachments required, ever.
FOREO’s hydrating SERUM SERUM SERUM safely transfers microcurrent* from BEAR to your skin. For optimal conductivity, apply a thin layer before using BEAR or BEAR mini & massage until fully absorbed.
*SERUM SERUM SERUM may be used with any microcurrent device. NEVER use BEAR or any microcurrent device without a conductive serum, gel or cream.
