This is so easy to use and my face felt like silk after the very first time! The steam is a very gentle cloud that pushes out far enough that this is comfortable to use and rather hard to injure yourself by getting too close. Never thought I needed a facial steamer and it has changed my skincare routine. I love the feature that you can add essential oils as well for that deep steam and the benefits are great for making your serums and treatments more receptive on the skin. Every woman needs one to have a spa day at home.
