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! ;)

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 :)

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 :)

First, ONLY use distilled water. This will prevent from getting build-up on and in the machine.
I have found using oxy-clean (the purple bottle) VERY carefully on the coils works. Make sure you rinse with distilled water ONLY. This will help prevent excess maintenance.

answer 2
You should only be using distilled water in it. If you use tap water, there will be mineral deposits from the water left behind, which will build up overtime and partially block the steam's exit... to clean away those deposits, run one cycle with 50/50 distilled water and white vinegar, that should get rid of any build up. Make sure you run one or two cycles right after with just distilled water to get the vinegar scent out and you are good to go!

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 :)

Question
What products do I use with the steamer?
I am thinking about buying this because recently my skin is a mess! Small breakouts all over my face, and severe breakout on my chin that is constant and not going away. I can see that my forehead and around my nose is getting small white heads and clogged pores too. My skin is combination, oily in some parts, dry in others. I need to know what mask to use with this? If any? Also how to do it. I know some people say they shower and moisturize and do it, others say they put on a mask and sit in front of it, others say they use it, pick at their skin and then put on a mask? I need as much information as I can get. Thanks!

It sounds to me like you would most benefit to a trip to get a professional aesthetician. Your questions would be best answered by them, and you'll get a better understanding of the steps involved. Once you've experienced this, you'll know how to do it on your own..
There are also a couple of really good videos on YouTube. Just google Dr. gross steamer.

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.

For large and clogged pores, I would recommend this. Steam on regular for about 3 minutes. Turn off unit. Wash face (do you own a Clarisonic?). Apply a peel mask. Turn unit back on. Steam on regular for about 3 minutes. Turn off unit. Allow mask to fully dry (usually about 20 minutes). Peel mask off. Rinse any debris left over. Turn unit back on. Steam ozone for the remainder of the time. Tone. Moisturize. Feel beautiful. It'll be worth your effort. :)

Question
Where/how do YOU use this?
Hi,
I was just wondering where and how others have used this steamer in their homes? I'm used to having this done when I get facials but I'm assuming most people don't have a spa table/bed to lay on at home.
Thanks!

A portable computer or dinner tray works well so that you may use it anywhere in the house. The arm is movable so you can direct the steam flow. This means you can sit at any angle or lie down on the couch or bed.

I keep mine on my bedside table, and steam myself in the evening in bed (I'm lazy...I believe in doing as many things sitting in bed as possible). It seems to work out okay - my bedside table is just the right height when I'm in bed so that the steam hits my face. I keep a couple of gallon jugs of distilled water in my closet.

It's kind of my nighttime ritual to steam myself and have a little downtime - then I take a bath. : )
