This is so much better than just a shower. The steam is concentrated so it just gives your face the effect of steam. You can adjust which part of face you want to concentrate on. I only take showers and I have never had the effect that this device gives. So far it has worked wonderfully and helped me unclog pores as a bonus.

It really does. There is a concentrated stream of steam, so you can move around so the steam hits different parts of your face. Besides, hot showers aren't very good for your skin--it dries it out. Hope this helps! ;)

you may use it daily but no longer than 10 minutes! otherwise it can damage your capillaries.

I think it should be used twice a week.
If you have gone on a trip and you might be exposed to more dirt and grime then use it.
Also if not feeling well use it to clear up the nasal passage and the face.

It depends. Make sure you are sitting 12-15 inches AWAY from the nozzle to prevent burning. Try once a week. Let your skin tell you whether or not it's too much. If not, try twice a week. Everyone's skin is different/ Remember to moisturize right after. I prefer the hope in a jar (4 oz) for my sensitive skin :)

added oils?
Anyone put any added essential oils or anything in the steamer?

Definitely no oil in the water, but there is a thing called the "aroma sleeve" which is a sliding cover on the steam arm... I wonder if oils can be used on that? Sadly the instructions are absolutely appalling and although they list this "aroma sleeve" on the diagram, they don't tell you what it is or what to do with it. But I think it could be for oils...

NO!!!!!!!!!!! Use ONLY distilled water....if you add anything to it, it can malfunction. Oils can prevent the machine from working properly. If you want to use oils, use them another way, not in the steamer :)

Question
age???
I noticed your reviews don't include above 54 yrs. Does this mean it won't be effective for ages above that? I am 77 and try to take care of my skin. Have always had good skin, little trouble. I do have trouble with nose pores enlarged and am always interested in anything that would help with that.

Question
How do you use it?
Maybe it is straightforward but how do you use this product? I cannot find any videos online and the comments say the instruction manual is oddly written. Do you just put your face in front of the steam?

I usually put it on a table a bit elevated with something like a thick book or box from the surface of the table and sit in front of it so the steam is aimed downwards to the face. Position face a few inches away and it works great.

There's a switch on the nozzle that see,s to affect the temperature of the steam slightly. Slide it one direction and the steam is a bit hotter and concentrated slide the other direction and it is just a tad cooler and fluffier for lack of a better description.

Well it's as simple as eating cake,literally.Add water to the mark and put it on a stable surface and press the start button.steam starts coming out and hold your face as close to it as you like.I would recommend this because it doesn't get any simpler then this.

How big of a risk is there for burning yourself with this? At least one reviewer said they burned themselves. And is this okay for sensitive skin?

This is a hard question to answer due to the level of cautiousness one must use. As long as it's placed on a sturdy, safe surface it is not easily tipped over. I do not believe an adult can easily be burned but due care is paramount. My 16 yr old son has even used this, but he understands the seriousness of using this product. I do not touch the steamer after use until it is completely cooled.

I have sensitive skin. You need to be at least 12-15 inches away from the steamer to prevent burning. I love it, I use it 1-2 times a week and see great results! Great investment in my opinion :)

The ozone setting helps to increase cell oxygenation and blood circulation, as well as increase cell turnover.

Question
Does steamer NEED to be used with distilled water?
I have just bought this steamer (waiting for it to arrive), and am wondering if anyone has used it with tap water, and if that is ok. I know it recommends distilled, but if I used tap water and regularly cleaned it with vinegar solution, would this be ok?

it doesn't NEED to be but there are minerals and other substances in purified or tap water that can clog the steamer

Whatever you put in is going back on your face, so to me I want the best water available. Tap water has a lot of chemicals which can clog the nozzle too.

I use the full 20 minute cycle with the UV light and ozone, once a week or so. It is not too much for my skin at all and I'm oily/combo/sensitive.

For masks, I stay under the steamer for the amount of time the mask is supposed to be worn. I turn the machine off, then let the mask dry completely before rinsing off.

Question
Clogs pores?
I have combo skin with large pores and occasional blackheads. I know steaming opens pores so what should I have on my face while using? A clay mask? Gel mask? Moisturizer? I don't want to clog pores and I want those blackheads out without using a tool.

I usually exfoliate, then steam. I don't typically put anything on my skin while steaming, but use an acne serum then moisturizer afterwards. Sometimes, I use a fruit acid/hydroxy mask while steaming to amp up the exfoliation, but it isn't necessary. To just loosen blackheads, I'd recommend an exfoliator, steaming, then using an extractor tool.

Unfortunately blackheads really need to be extracted. That's why aestheticians steam then do extractions.
