ReFa Carat Platinum Electronic Roller - Imomoko & ReFa Event!

Hello lovelies! As I am currently writing this post, I'm on the shinkansen from Tokyo to Osaka where I will be spending the next week. I was able to do a good amount of editing on the plane to Japan so I will be trying to post in between my trips!

A while back I was lucky enough to attend an event held by Imomoko and ReFa about their slimming devices. Imomoko is a authorized seller of ReFa and believe it or not, there are many fakes out there that even copy the exact packaging! I've had my fair share of plastic slimmers in hope that with due diligence, hard word would pay off in the highly sought after V shaped face.




There are many popular ways and techniques of facial massage in Asia, and this happens to be one of Japan's most popular. It has been at the top of ranking charts in cosme.net and has even received an award for best cosmetic beauty equipment. Not only did they sell over 1 million units in just one year, it was featured as one of the official gifts for the Grammy's in 2011. 




ReFa utilizes its solar panel to create micro-currents to mimic the motions of a professional aesthetician. While the ReFa Carat is more popular in Asia, ReFa Pro is more popular in the States. Not only is it effective on the face and neck for lymphatic drainage, it also can be used on other areas of your body such as arms, legs, and stomach to eliminate cellulite and tighten the skin.





The ReFa Pro Up Serum can also be used in conjunction with the device and increases micro-current conductivity by 4.5 times! Containing some of the key elements of collagen, hyaluric acid, and elastin it gives you a healthy glow while allowing moisture to penetrate deep within your skin. It is scentless and perfect for those with sensitive skin like me.       





The event itself was amazing at the Los Angeles Hilton, and even speakers from Japan's MTG to explain and teach us how to use the ReFa Carat as well as the ReFa Pro and a live demo on a model. Within minutes, we saw how her skin was uplifted and the skin around v-line tighter! I was surprised, because all the years of trying the plastic rollers, it often took months of continuous use to produce any noticeable results.










Trying to get that v-face!

I first saw this device on Beauty QQ's channel on YouTube and wondered if it was really as good as so many people claimed. After using it daily for about a month, I feel like the skin around my neck is tighter, and that the device is very helpful in getting rid of water retention. The fact that it is waterproof also makes it convenient to use it while you are taking a bath or watching TV. These kind of goods are always an investment, but if you are dedicated I think it is worth it!

  5. I've used the plastic kinds before and this is definitely 200x better! I think that if you use it everyday, it definitely helps with water retention and firming skin. It's a great aid to the skincare/diet category, but I think the effects are a lot more visible than other types of rollers/massage!

  6. To an extent, yes! I think it is great for aiding in reducing water retention and firming loose skin. I saw that Panasonic came out with a similar product that is running campaigns in Japan right now, but ReFa is definitely a front runner in this category!
