Taking a break from my Shop My Shelf series to post this long overdue review.
If you’ve been a follower of this blog for a while, you know I love the NuFACE Mini. I also really like the NuFACE Fix, which I’ve yet to review. (Give me a break! I’m a busy gal.) I got the NuBODY Skin Toning Device in 2021 and have been using it regularly again lately, and I’m really thrilled with the results. So just in time for bathing suit season, here we go!
Like the NuFACE devices, NuBODY uses microcurrent technology to smooth, tone and firm the skin. It’s a handheld device and as long as you use the proper amount of conductor (their gel or any aloe), it’s completely painless. The NuBODY targets cellulite and loose and sagging skin, and I’ve found that it really works.
Not only do I see immediate results when I use it, but consistent use means I get to enjoy longer term results. I’m not as consistent with it as I was with the NuFACE Mini, but I’ve been getting to it most days lately and it’s absolutely working. It’s recommended that you use the NuBODY 5 times a week for three months, then 2 – 3 times a week after that, and the reviews I read from people who had the discipline to stick with that program seemed to have the most drastic results.
To use the NuBODY, you first need to apply a thin layer of conductor on clean, shaven or waxed skin. (It feels prickly if you run the device over an area with hair.) It runs in a five minute cycle, and you can hold it on a stubborn (aka dimpled) areas longer. For the how-to, it’s easier to just watch this.
I only know how the NuBody worked on me, so I want to let you know where I started from, as that could impact my results. I’m petite and have an 18.7 BMI, which is on the lower end of the “normal” range. I have decent muscle tone but I don’t lift heavy weights or work out a ton. I run a couple times a week at most, walk everywhere, regularly do at-home ab, glutes, thighs and arm workouts and eat very clean (both due to food restrictions and a desire to physically feel good), so I don’t have a lot of extra fat.
I do have some though, particularly on my thighs and upper arms, and I have some cellulite on the backs of my thighs. I’ve also noticed recently that the skin on my stomach is not as firm as it used to be. I’m mentioning this because I don’t know if someone who has more or less cellulite, body fat, or sagging would experience the same results as I have. I do know this device doesn’t cause weight loss and it’s not plastic surgery, so be realistic with the expectations!
I use the NuBODY on my upper arms, thigh and stomach only. Each area takes five minutes (plus the time it takes to apply gel or aloe then remove it or massage it in after). I typically only have 15 minutes to devote to it, so I use it on my stomach and either my arms or my legs, but I do all areas when I have the time.
I’m not doing any Before & After photos here because I have a strong no-photos-of-my-body policy, but you can Google Before & Afters if you don’t trust my review.
This isn’t a cheap device, but I’ve found it to be absolutely worth it. If you have cellulite, loose skin or sagging that bothers you and you can commit to consistently using this device, it may be a game changer for you. If you have that stuff though and it doesn’t bother you? Save your money. No body shaming here, boo. Just sharing my honest opinion of a device I’ve found to be effective that makes me feel better in my summer wardrobe.
Have a beautiful day 🙂
