The 3 in 1 aromatherapy facial steamer by LCL Beauty is one of their top selling models for a number of reasons. Make no mistake, this is a large facial steamer machine. This model is mainly designed for professional use in a spa or salon, but if you’re serious about skin health and you find yourself paying fifty to sixty dollars a week on pro facial steam treatments, then this easy to use steamer may be the perfect investment for you.
This is a model that has it all. While it does come with a number of features, the intuitive design makes it easy to use and adjust.
LCL Beauty Facial Steamer Overview and Features
This model is compatible with essential oils, so you can enjoy an invigorating aromatherapy session during your standard facial steam treatment for ultimate results. There are a number of essential oils that you can use to improve the circulation in the face, in addition to the skin’s texture and firmness. You can use essential oils or herbs with the included herbal basket. If you’re using this machine in a professional capacity you can now add aromatherapy to your list of services, increasing your weekly income almost effortlessly with this simple to use feature.
This is a CE certified facial steamer with purifying ozone. The machine’s fully adjustable arm makes this LCL steamer perfect for spa and salon use. If you normally use a smaller steamer, then you know you have to adjust it often to ensure it covers the client’s face efficiently and evenly. This can be an issue if you work in a tight space such as a booth. This machine’s fully adjustable arm allows you to treat the desired areas quickly and efficiently thanks to the arm’s up and down and pivoting abilities.
You’ll also find an ozone function. This function works to purify the water as it passes through the steamer, essentially sterilizing the steam. This also helps to eliminate any acne causing bacteria found in the skin.
The large sixteen diopter magnification arm will allow you to expertly examine your client’s skin in order to recommend or perform certain types of skincare treatments that require pinpoint precision. This model also comes with a built-in loupe in the lens that’s designed for extreme skin inspections.
The machine uses soft cool fluorescent bulbs. These bulbs won’t burn, or irritate a client’s skin.
The handheld high-frequency ozone facial machine is pro quality and is designed to easily rest on the base of the main steamer unit for quick access.
The steamer also comes with four glass electrodes. This includes a mushroom electrode for broad areas, a spoon electrode designed for use on highly sensitive areas of the face including beneath the eyes where the skin is the thinnest. The sparker electrode is a very precise attachment that works to treat blemishes. The rake electrode is used to stimulate the scalp to encourage hair growth, remove product buildup, or to treat dry patches of skin.
3 in 1 Facial Steamer Pros and Cons
Pros: This steamer offers the total package and feels more like a mini spa than a facial steamer. This model is designed to perform aromatherapy, something that most facial machines in this price range are unable to do. Using herbs or essential oils is easy to incorporate into a standard steam session thanks to the included herbal basket which works to infuse the steam with the best oils and herbs for skin health.
This model’s ozone function utilizes an ultraviolet light that purifies the steam.
Aside from the basic steaming functions the large magnifying lamp and the magnification loupe designed for close up skin inspections were huge selling points for consumers in search of a professional grade model. The loupe makes it easy to pinpoint skin imperfections that you can focus on during treatment. Commonly, the strength of the light can be a concern, especially when working with clients that have sensitive skin. Fortunately, the bulbs used in this machine do not emit enough heat to burn skin, even when used up close.
Last of all, a major selling point was the four glass electrodes. The electrodes are integrated into the steamer base which works to not only save space, but you also won’t need to use an extra power outlet.
The electrodes include a comb and rake for scalp stimulation, which is another service you can offer and one that many women swear works to boost hair production. The mushroom electrode is also a must-have that’s designed to treat larger areas.
This entire system is covered by a one-year product warranty.
Cons: This model is on the pricey side. Given the size and many features, it may not be the best option for beginners.
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly model, we highly recommend the Panasonic facial steamer, which is also designed with portability in mind.
LCL Beauty Aromatherapy Facial Steamer Final Thoughts and Rating
When there’s a lot of competition in the field, manufacturers attempt to gain an edge by designing multi-functioning systems that offer more value for the price. And LCL Beauty nailed it with this 3 in 1 machine. Not only does this model offer highly efficient facial steam treatments, but it also comes with the magnifying lamp and loupe that allows for improved precision during treatment because the user will get a clear view of the client’s skin quality and can then recommend certain treatments for the best results. The four electrodes also work to increase this model’s value while allowing you to offer a wider range of skin treatments.
This is the priciest model we reviewed, but if you’re looking for a salon quality model, you can expect to pay more.
However, not everyone will want or need a full salon kit with steamer, loupe, light, and aromatherapy capabilities.
Overall, pros who purchased this model were satisfied with its performance, giving this machine a rating of five out of five stars which make it one of the best face steamers on the market and our top rated product.
