Review Roundup: BEAR™ — the mighty microcurrent device

FOREO BEAR device sending microcurrent into the skin

Your first impressions and BEAR experiences are here! Have you heard of microcurrent facials or are you living under a rock? This age refining treatment is praised among estheticians and worshiped among celebrities. Dubbed “the natural facelift”, it works by stimulating over 60 muscles in your face and neck — boosting collagen and toning them in the process. Our BEAR range is designed to do just that, but from the comfort of your home. Feeling curious? Take a look at what others have to say about these mighty devices!


Glamour’s Sara Wu volunteered to try BEAR but she wasn’t ready for the skin-changing effect it ended up having!

After one week my cheekbones looked like they had returned fresh from a filler tweakment, and my jawline sharpened up as well...it does things to my face that simply can't be replicated with topicals. Hello again, cheekbones. I missed you.


Three different writers from Nylon had the pleasure of getting to know and review FOREO BEAR! Adele, Amelia and Shazrina tried out the microcurrent treatment and it's safe to say that they were dazzled:

...I was really impressed with how contoured my face was. My skin was also more radiant, glowy, firm and contoured. It actually made me look like I just finished a workout — in a good way, of course. I would recommend investing in BEAR if you’re looking for an alternative to depuff and tone your face, especially in the morning. It’s easy to use, and it’s a great option if you’re looking for a quick face lift without having to into the clinic.


Both Christina and her boyfriend tried out our BEAR devices and our SERUM SERUM SERUM, and it's safe to say they were impressed:

With 2 weeks of continuous use, I could definitely see a huge difference in his face. In just 4 days of continuous use, his jawline was peeking out more and when he shaved, he actually had a light butt chin hiding! I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture, but his cheeks were way tighter, less saggy, and so much less swollen. Do I think this device is worth it? Yes, a million percent yes.

Marie Claire

We’re still blushing because our newest devices made it to Marie Claire’s “52 New Beauty Products That Will Change Your Life” list! Not only do they swear that each device is a game-changer, but they called our BEAR “The Facial Pilates Class”! How cute!

This adorable handheld device uses microcurrents to lift and tone the muscles in your face—kind of like crunches, but for your cheekbones.


The team at Hypebae was impressed by our patented Anti-Shock System:

Its Anti-Shock System™ arrives with ultra-smart sensors that detect the user’s skin resistance and elasticity, automatically adjusting its pulsations according to your needs.

Foreo Bear is absolutely amazing. I owned another well known make, but found it too tedious to use with all the stopping and a starting. The Bear is as fast or slow as you want it be, with outstanding results. Love the shape and feel of the silicon case as well.

Hi, I want to know why the bug bear isn't available in all colours? I like my stuff to match! Specifically pearl pink ( and I know it's available in the mini version so why not the big version??)

I'm not sure about the 'anti-shock' system. I get sharp prickles on certain parts of my face everytime I use it. I follow the instructions and get zapped everytime. What could be causing this?

Dear Julie, thank you for this comment! Kindly note that the Anti-shock System has been developed to make the treatment comfortable during use. Therefore depending on your sensitivity, you may feel a slight tingling sensation to nothing at all. Some people may feel the tingling sensation when using the device near their hairline as the skin and muscle mass are thinner here whilst some people may not feel it at all. This is all down to personal skin reactions to the treatment so I would like to assure you that it is completely normal that some people feel something and some people don't. Please bear in mind that your BEAR™ is intended to be used with a water-based serum. This will help the microcurrents to penetrate the epidermis to reach the muscle therefore you should not feel a thing when the treatment is performing. However, it is not recommended that you use oil-based serum, or any creams as a conductor. Oil-based serums and creams will not react well with the BEAR™. This might have been your case. Also, please note that the indicator light will remain lit up if both spheres are not touching your skin at the same time. So, please make sure that you are using your device with enough serum and that both spheres are touching your skin simultaneously. When this light turns off, it means that you are using the device correctly. However, if the light remains lit even with both spheres touching your skin please let me know so that I can help you further. Hope this helps! Kindest regards :D
