GLOfacial: Up Close & Personal, All Your Questions Answered

Posted On

Ever wondered what's inside your pores? Well, it's time to get up close and personal with your skin, and we're here to re-introduce you to the patented, award-winning GLOfacial Hydration Pore-Cleansing Tool – your ticket to unlimited hydration facials in the comfort of your own home. We promise, you'll be a pro in no time! 

But, what’s really inside your pores? 

Let’s take a closer look! Our GLOfacial tool is your glo-to for unclogging pores and exfoliating dead skin cells while removing debris and excess oil in just 4 ½ minutes.  

Think of it as your pores' best friend – a gentle vortex vacuum that sucks out dirt, oil, and makeup residue helping pores appear smaller while resurfacing texture and infusing skin with clarifying Salicylic and plumping Collagen or Hyaluronic Acid. And yes, it's perfect even for those with sensitive skin. 

Now, the poreconfessions - your pores can be quite a mystery, changing on a day-to-day basis depending on what you’re getting up to. Sometimes you GLOfacial waste chamber might have excess oil, floaties (that's dirt and debris), or even a hint of orange, which is essentially makeup that has settled into the pores - and that's totally okay! 

Say hello to a silky-smooth canvas and a healthy, hydrated glow and say buh-bye to blackheads, excess oil, and hidden gunk beneath your skin's surface with these easy steps.  


  • Attach the desired Treatment Tip firmly onto the tool with the tab positioned upward. 
  • Now, the fun part! Open the Treatment Chamber and pour in your choice of concentrate – our original GLOfacial Concentrate or the NEW GLOfacial Collagen Concentrate. Fill the rest with water until the Fill Line. 
  • Turn on your tool by pressing and holding the power button for 3-5 seconds. Push  it again to start in low suction mode.  
  • Keep your skin taut, hold the tool upright, and glide it along damp skin until the Treatment Chamber is empty.  
  • After admiring your Waste Chamber and everything that was sucked out of your pores, it's now time to thoroughly clean your GLOfacial Tool using the accompanying brush and a gentle antibacterial soap. Allow all components to dry thoroughly before reassembling and storing your tool.

GLOfacial Modes to Customize Your Treatment:

  • Turn on for Blue LED Light Treatment
  • Press +1 for low suction
  • Press +2 for medium suction
  • Press +3 for high suction


  • Start treatment with a damp face right after cleansing to make sure the tool glides smoothly on your skin (We recommend using The Balance pH Cleanser)
  • Start with the Small Tip and target the areas around your nose and chin - these are the areas that typically hide the most gunk. 
  • Start with low suction mode – it's easier to control for your first time. You can work your way up to the medium and high settings. 
  • If you hear a beeping sound, no worries. Smart tech beeps 3 times if you lose optimal skin contact. Just keep the tool pointing down towards the floor. 
  • Reminder: There's no extra credit for pressing hard!
