I was sooo excited to receive the Baby Quasar Plus*, having spent the last week or so lusting after it online (considering the weather I’ve had plenty of time to do so), so I’m happy to report that it finally arrived this morning. I say “finally”, but it actually only took five days to get here from America which I thought was pretty impressive!
The Baby Quasar Plus (which I’m going to refer to as Baby Q for an easy life) is designed to combat signs of age around the eye area, often referred to as Crows Feet. However, many online users have used it all over the face and reported positive results for skin clarity, pore size and reduction of all signs of ageing, so I’m going to be trying it out with that in mind. To be honest, I did think it was a tool designed specifically for all over the face but the instructions dictate otherwise, so I’ll double check that with the manufacturer and update on my next Baby Q post.
The Baby Q arrives in a really well packaged carrier which I’m a big fan of for gadgets, as I hate having them just sitting around waiting to be broken. Inside you get the Baby Q, the adaptor, the instruction manual and the quick start guide. It’s very easy to use; you simply plug it in, place it on your face, push the button and off you go. Each treatment cycle lasts for 3 minutes, so technically it should only take 6 minutes a day if you’re just treating the eye area.
You have to be careful with your placement as you DO NOT want to be shining this directly into the eyes as the lights are extremely bright. The treatment itself was extremely easy and not half as awkward as I expected it to be. The device is comfortable to hold (I can happily waffle away on the phone whilst still holding it in place) and I ended up doing 7 treatments in total; 1 on each eye, 1 on each cheek, 1 on each jaw line and 1 on the forehead.
There was no real sensation other than a bit of warmth and the skin felt warm afterwards for a couple of minutes. Rather horrifyingly, my crows feet looked much more pronounced after use but this settled down after 10 minutes or so. Other reviewers have mentioned that they noticed a firmer, glowier look to their skin immediately afterwards. I didn’t notice that, but one thing I did see was quite a reduction in the depth of my eye bag: you know that line you get from the inner eye that goes all the way out towards the temples, and the skin within this is usually quite puffy? I’m struggling to see any puffiness at all which is great, but could be temporary (and could just be me flattening it with the head of the device!) so we shall see.
So far so good; the device is easy to use, easy to set up, and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens and I’ll update as I go along. The recommended treatment programme is 5 times a week which I think will be quite easy to integrate into daily life i.e. in front of the telly.
