Why is it a good Black Friday deal?

When you consider how much professional skin-care treatments can cost — in the hundreds of dollars, or even thousands — $40 is a total steal. Plus, this device allows you to pamper your skin in the comfort of your own home, and its tens of thousands of perfect ratings back it up.

Why do I need this?

The NanoSteamer has just about everything you need for an at-home facial. It's a new type of steamer that generates nano-ionic steam. What's that? Nano steam, combined with ionic water particles, is up to 10 times more effective in penetrating your skin.

The steamer comes with four different stainless steel blackhead and blemish extractors that you can use right after your steaming session to easily remove blackheads and blemishes. It has a huge water tank and can run for 30 minutes without a refill. It also has an auto shutoff sensor that powers the device down when water runs out. Air feeling dry at your place? The steamer even doubles as a humidifier.

What reviewers say

Reviewers can't say enough good things about this product. "I tried it ... I loved it ... I bought two!" one five-star fan wrote. "Now I can steam anytime. It takes only seconds to produce steam and I can do it wherever I choose."

Many users are seeing serious results. "Since I’ve been using this steamer, I’ve noticed a dramatic change!" one satisfied shopper said. "My pores appear smaller (my makeup has been looking so buttery and 'smoove'!). My skin is now retaining moisture, and best of all I’ve noticed a change in my hyperpigmentation and overall texture of my skin."

Another raved: "I'm really happy with it. It gets extremely hot, which makes it way easier to remove all that gunk inside your pores, which is why I wanted a face steamer in the first place. I also have really dry skin normally and now it feels much less dry. My skin feels super soft and moisturized, and my pores appear much smaller now that I've cleaned them out."

This five-star reviewer explained, "It's almost like having a mini sauna at home."

Plenty of users say this has made them a steam-facial convert. "I am now a religious steamer and my face is happy about it," wrote one.

"Soothing!" exclaimed a final fan. "Smells a little plastic-y at first, but I feel like as I’ve used the steamer, the smell is less potent. Other than that, I have no complaints! ... I love that I can feel my pores open as I use this. My skin has a noticeably softer texture after using this."

All the tools you need for an at-home facial. See all three colors!

If you want a more intense steaming experience, the brand's professional-level steamer is also on sale:

This model produces three times the steam of the 3-in-1 model, plus it includes cool mist and aromatherapy chambers as well as a built-in magnification mirror.

$60 at Amazon

This powerful 4-in-1 steamer is specially designed for spas, but you can get it at home! The cool mist function can help seal your freshly cleaned pores quickly post-steam. Aromatherapy fans can add essential oils for boosted steaming sessions or to diffuse a pleasant scent into your home. And the five-piece stainless steel blackhead and blemish extractor kit helps get gunk out of your skin after your steam.

One pleased user shared that it even helps with her sinus issues: "Being a woman in her 60s and plagued by severe sinus and allergies, I read the reviews for this machine and I thought I would try it. You take it out of the box and use your distilled water with the enclosed measuring cup (I also added eucalyptus oil). Before the treatment was completed, my stuffy nose was open. The feeling it gives your skin is an extra plus. It's well worth the money."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
