Experience the future of skincare wherever you are. More than lights, this ultimate all-in-one beauty tech facial device is supercharged with 7 proven technologies and 5 supercharged functions, bringing the home spa experience to the next level.

No complicated apps or pairing with your smartphone required, just four preset modes — Cleanse, Firm, Soothe and Glow which takes you from cleansing to addressing different skin concerns.


Hard-to-reach grime, impurities and excess sebum embedded deep within pores are drawn to the skin’s surface and lifted away for a deep yet gentle cleanse to deliver a clean and clear complexion.

With up to 8,000 sonic vibrations per minute to promote blood circulation and detoxification, improve skin metabolism and minimise puffiness, it helps to instantly relax facial muscles to dissolve tension and provide an energising and uplifting effect.

Warming to up to 45°C, the ideal temperature for deeper penetration of essential nutrients into the deeper layers of the skin, it helps to boost blood circulation which, in turn, encourages cell regrowth and promotes healthier skin.

Going as low as 12°C, it taps on low temperatures to tighten pores, reduce puffiness, soothe irritated skin, calm inflammatory reactions, and suppress melanin production to brighten the skin.

LED Red Light penetrates the skin deeper than other visible light and stimulates the mitochondria, also known as the power generators, in cells to ensure optimum performance, accelerating skin repair and energising skin cells to boost collagen regeneration and improve skin elasticity, slowing the signs of premature ageing and environmental damage.

Scientifically proven to kill the P.acnes bacteria, most commonly responsible for breakouts, on the surface of the skin, LED Blue Light has powerful antibacterial properties for the treatment of acne without irritation. The LED Blue Light effectively reduces acne-causing bacteria, calms breakouts, reduces inflammations, and prevents future breakouts.

The calming, anti-inflammatory LED Green Light targets melanocytes, slowing down the production of melanin to minimise the amount of pigmentation that reaches the top layers of the skin. It helps to brighten skin, reduce pigmentation, and signs of sun damage for overall skin luminosity.

A device that truly does it all, transform your skin and re-create spa-like treatments from home—no trip to the dermatologist’s office required.

Specially formulated for all skin types. SOOTHE mode is safe for use during pregnancy. As a precautionary note, we advise that you consult your gynae to discuss what's right for you personally.



Expertly programmed into four facial treatment modes, the seven technologies equipped in the LumiGlow SmartSkin Buddy transform the skin and recreate personalised spa-like experiences from wherever you are, providing a one-stop solution to address and target all skin care concerns for all skin types.

MODE 1 (CLEANSE): Thermal Compress (35-39°C) + Sonic Vibration + Galvanic Ion Therapy
After removing makeup, apply ést.lab cleansers on wet skin before gliding the device around the face and neck for a deep cleanse. Do not rinse or wash the device under running water after use. Clean the probe head with an alcohol swab or wet wipe and be sure to wipe it dry.

MODE 2 (FIRM): Thermal Compress (40-45°C) + Sonic Vibration + LED Red Light Therapy
After cleansing, apply ést.lab serums and glide the device around facial contours to boost collagen regeneration, improve skin elasticity, and plump up fine lines, while enhancing the absorption of active ingredients. This mode is best paired with the serums from the ést.lab VitaLift A+ range to target wrinkles, expression lines, and sagging skin.

MODE 3 (SOOTHE): Cryo Compress (12-15°C) + LED Blue Light Therapy
After cleansing, apply ést.lab serums and glide the device around facial contours to cool and calm the skin, kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce redness, and soothe inflammation. Pair this treatment with serums from the ést.lab ActivCalm range for dehydrated, reactive skin, and the ést.lab PurClear range for acne-prone skin.

MODE 4 (GLOW): Sonic Vibration + LED Green Light
After cleansing, apply ést.lab serums and glide the device around facial contours to reduce pigmentation, improve clarity, brighten overall skin tone, and boost skin luminosity. For best results, pair the serums from the LumiWhite range with this treatment mode to target dark spots, pigmentation, and dull skin.

1. Is LumiGlow SmartSkin Buddy suitable for all skin types?
It is suitable for all skin types and you can personalise your facial treatment based on your skin concerns.

2. Can I use the LumiGlow SmartSkin Buddy on its own?
We do not recommend using the device on dry skin as it may cause tugging on the skin, which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. The device also helps enhance the penetration of active ingredients of your skincare products to boost efficacy for best results.

3. How long should I use it for?
We advise the treatment duration of each mode to not go beyond the recommended timing of 3 minutes or once your skincare is fully absorbed, whichever is faster as we do not recommend the device to be used on dry skin.

4. Can I use more than 1 mode each time?
We recommend using Mode 1 (CLEANSE) + either Mode 2 (FIRM) or Mode 3 (SOOTHE) or Mode 4 (GLOW) for each use. By using only 1 mode at a time, it provides an optimal targeted treatment for more visible results. We do not recommend using the Thermotherapy and Cryotherapy concurrently as it may negate the benefits. We recommend using them on alternate days or based on your skin concern for that day.

If the device is turned on but not in use, it will automatically power off after 12 minutes. Device is intelligently programmed to protect and preserve battery life.

5. How long does a full charge take?
A full charge takes approximately 2-3 hours.

6. Does it come with warranty?
Limited warranty is available against defects in material and workmanship when used in accordance with the user manual for a period of SIX (6) months from date of purchase.

7. What is included in the box?
It includes a LumiGlow SmartSkin Buddy, device holder, user manual and charging cable (beneath the box insert).

8. What battery does it use?
It is a USB-rechargeable device.

9. Can I wash the device?
The device is not waterproof because of the LED bulbs on the device. Please use the device with dry hands and refrain from using it while showering. Do not rinse the device with water or submerge under water. Use a wet wipe to clean the device after use and be sure to wipe it dry.

10. Is it normal for the device to feel warm while in use or after use?
It is normal for the device to feel slightly warm especially while using Mode 3 (Boost) as the device generates heat during the process of cooling down for the cryo compress. The heat will dissipate after a couple of minutes.

11. Can I use the device with other products?
You can use it with your serums, creams and biocellulose masks but for optimal results, we recommend using it with ést.lab products which have been tried and tested with the device to achieve the best results.  The device also helps to enhance the penetration of active ingredients in your skincare products so good formulations also play a very huge part in achieving optimal results. Please refrain from using it with products containing alcohol, Vitamin C and exfoliating acids (apart from ést.lab products) as it may cause discolouration on the device head over time doe to wear and tear but please be assured that this does not affect the efficacy of the device.

Great device

Have been using the smart skin buddy for a week and I love the different modes available. My favourite would be the cold mode. The device is also handy! Easy to bring around for holidays too!

Diminishes my necklines!

I've been using it for a month and I noticed my necklines are fading! Like other users, I have grown to love the LED blue light like that is perfect for hot weather ;) Giving it 4 stars as there's always room for improvement. There's not much to complain!

A mini facial everyday!

I have been using the soothe and glow function for about a month and i love the ease in using this. It does help faster absorption in my serums and leave the skin feeling fresh and bright!

Great device

Pretty product, convenient and cost saving with its all in 1 use. Alternating between the firming and glowing mode. With its auto off timer, provides great convenient for busy mum like me. 👍

makes me feel so much more confident in my bare skin

This is the best gift I got for myself. Feels so relaxing (especially the cold and warm modes) and I love how my skin looks after use. pores look smaller and skin looks brighter and healthier. an instant boost of confidence.
