Beauty Editor’s Honest Review: Droplette Micro Infusion Device
When you buy Droplette, you will also choose a set of serum capsules. The brand offers different options depending on your skin care goals: collagen capsules for plumping and hydration, glycolic acid for skin repair, tranexamic acid for dark spots, retinol capsules to smooth fine lines and growth factor capsules to fight deeper signs of skin aging . (It also comes with cleaning capsules for cleaning the device, which the brand recommends doing once a week.)
Select your fighter (or several if you’re planning on doing one of the app’s preset routines) and drop one capsule into the device’s chamber—after the door closes completely, you should hear a slight click as it locks into place.
After cleansing and drying your face, sweep over the white surface about half an inch from the skin, tilting your head back. Press the power button and make slow circles around your face.
At this point, you should notice a cloud of mist coming out of the Droplette. It may even seem like you are inhaling some of the drops; Rest assured, the brand notes after a series of laboratory tests, the mist cannot enter the lungs.
After about a minute, the device will automatically turn off. Open the chamber, dispose of your now empty capsule and continue with your skin care. light!
Now, interestingly, you don’t need to dry your face too thoroughly, even if you choose to use more powerful retinol or glycolic acid capsules. “We’ve tested it on both dry and slightly damp skin, and it doesn’t make much of a difference in terms of delivery,” notes Gavini. Whereas, if you’re using a topical serum with retinol or glycolic acid, you should make sure your face is completely dry before applying. “As long as it’s just a little wet, it’s not a big deal.”
Other than that, the same skin care rules apply: use photosensitizing actives (like the aforementioned retinol and glycolic acid) at night, stick to moisturizer, and always use sunscreen during the day.
