» Foaming cleanser is automatically turned into foam in approx. 5 sec. Add the foaming cleanser through the inlet and pour approx. 4 ml of water into the center of attachment cavity. Press the WASH button and select the speed, then micro-foam is generated. Like whipped cream, the rich foam together with patting vibration (approx. 850 times/min) gently cleanse your face without scrubbing skin and placing a burden on it. Washing your face with rich foam for 1 min every day results in finely textured skin.

» The brush has as many as 21,580 ultrafine bristles with tips about 0.01 mm in diameter. The cone-shaped bristles feel soft and pleasant on the skin. Micro-foam and a soft brush with micro-tip bristles thoroughly cleanse clogged pores and keratinized cells for smoother skin, with that refreshing post-wash feeling.

» The warm make up removal head lets you select from
two temperature settings. After applying a make up removal, using the warm head enables it to easily mix with make up. Just three minutes every day lets you easily remove make up without placing
a burden on your skin.

» The entire unit is washable so it’s easy to clean and can be used in the bathroom.

UV Sense by L’Oreal

L’Oreal, a cosmetic manufacturing giant comes up with a big leap with this little but hefty invention. They call it the UV Sense – short for UV Sensor (Don’t know if that’s short enough)

UV Sense was introduced at CES Technological Expo 2018. It is a tiny gadget that really sticks to your thumbnail to simply monitor your sun UV exposure and give you some hint if you have had enough or you need some more.

The gadget is NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled for further convenience so that you can monitor results on your own hand-held devices such as Android and iOS.

One of the basic functionality of UV Sense is that is will profile your skin tone to set the point of departure or the threshold in monitoring your exposure to the UV rays.

The product has high sense of loyalty afterwards that it has profiled your sun exposure. It will recommend L’Oreal based products after its assessments.

It comes with replaceable adhesives. Though it is highlighted as that will snap into your fingernails, it will just be fine to stick into other surfaces such as your sunglasses or your watches.

Description Ultra Violet Rays tiny wearable sensor.
Design Tiny enough to stick to fingernails, sunglasses, shoes, watches – essentially any item that is exposed to the sun. 
Measurement 2mm thick and 9mm in diameter
Batteries Battery-free
Connectivity NFC (Near Field Communication) with your cellphones. Or any other viable devices.
Display Changes color to indicate UV exposure
Functionality Show UV and lets you know when its time to apply sun-screen.

Prices may vary from country to country but the default SRP might range from $40 to $50 per unit.
