I Tried A Face Mask Controlled By My Phone

I Tried A Face Mask Controlled By My Phone

(Fun Music) Hello friends and welcome to another video. Today I am going to be trying out a face mask controlled by my iPhone, Yes, that sounds weird and I think it’s going to be weird. I’m very excited about this product… mostly because it’s a little contraband (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑ This face mask is called PlaySkin 😉 it’s made by an Italian company called Baldan Group. and it’s only sold in the UK and Italy. So I had one of my lovely UK based subscribers smuggle it to me, and uh they ordered it on my behalf and now it’s here. This face mask supposedly sends electric micro currents from your phone to your face to revitalize, plump, and generally shock I think. So my questions are: Does it work? Does it hurt? Will I be electrocuted in any way? And also, will I be able to play my skin like a game boy. (the real questions in life) Okay. Let’s get into it. So I have like my box of masks here On the front it says “There’s an average increase in hydration of 115% in one session.” “Tests carried out on 20 subjects at the
cosmetology center of the University of Ferrara.” So at least 20 other people have
tried this before and ostensibly have survived it. So I guess I’ll be number 21.
Let’s open this up and see what’s inside- Okay, so it looks like we’ve got some
directions. Um. This… [Tyler] what is that? [Saf] looks like a pair like airplane headphones. But I think that
this is the connector from the face mask to your phone. And then it looks like
we’ve got some electrodes. It kind of looks like you know a little heart
monitors, but I guess you’re gonna put that… onto the face. [Tyler] They look like things
you put on an 11 from stranger things. [Safiya] And then we’ve got some ~mascheras~ or
masks- I’m sorry about my Italian accent. I feel like my Italian accent goes
straight to Spanish and my French accent goes straight to Italian and then I also
have this play skin anti-aging renewal cream so that looks like something I’ve
seen before are you here selling an electric conductor let’s hope not
alright so the first step is to download the play skin app from the App Store
which I already have and then the second step is to tie up
your hair and cleanse your face all right so I’m gonna go take my makeup off
and I’ll be right back for some shocking good times okay so this is my before
I’ve got a couple of pimps down here a couple things I’ve been picking at and I
also tweezed some mustache hairs for you guys so you’re welcome so we are on step
number three which is open the mask and take the two mask components out of the
package oh they’re very dry usually when I open up a sheet mask I’m used to it
being like super wet like dripping okay so step number four is put the two
components on a flat surface film facing upwards what’s that guy from spirited
away no name yeah looks a little bit like no name okay so step five is
remove the protections from both strips something about the word protections
seems high stakes to me so hopefully this is not the part where I get
electrocuted step six is adhere the electrodes to the strips after removing
them from their base is that really the word they’re using electrode yeah we’re
going with electrode attach this to a toaster and drop it into a bathtub here
are my electrodes that will spermies position the electrodes while keeping
the cables up I think that’s right because both the electro I’m stuck to it
because both the electrodes are facing up up facing up okay so step number
seven is remove and position the double-sided adhesive discs and adhere
them to the electrodes and then remove the protective films from the mask all
right I think that we’re we’re ready shall we
oh yeah it’s a sticky one oh oh it’s pretty cooling it feels cool Tyler
what’s that it’s sticking on my sideburns it’s in there isn’t it yeah
you might be in for an involuntary waxing oh my god actually that really
hurts I think you just please get it on there and then we’ll just pull the
band-aid off I literally and figuratively later I didn’t realize I
had significantly more sideburns than 20 Italian college students I’m not
surprised okay let’s do the bottom part now my
sideburns are really involved oh they’re in the line of fire okay well that was
unfortunate what’s next okay so step 11 is connect
electrodes to the cable supplied and position the right side and left wires
over your ears tie I think I might need some of your help no I put on my face
mask so askew it’s not the best placement but it’s on you see like I
thought these like little places to plug me in yeah so plug me in was like
nineties electronics right here that is blowing it first
oh no please don’t oh am I pulling your sideburns yeah my bad okay
I plugged in yes and then 12 is connect the connector to your smartphone where’s
my cable attached to your head there we go
it’s like the longest rat tail I know you know what it is it’s like one of
those avatar ponytails oh it actually is because I’m plugging myself into my one
true mate okay so I’m plugged into the matrix so
let’s open up my computer and we’ll start screen recording and seeing them
what happens when I turn this mask on so I’m opening up the play skin app it says
hello are you ready for your beauty treatment I’m pretty much as ready as
I’ll ever be step 13 is use the mirror function to
check whether the mask has been applied correctly it’s not great but I don’t
really know what to do to fix it the problem is I can’t readjust without
completely ripping off my sideburns so I think we’re just gonna go with it
so step 14 is start the treatment for ten minutes of pure relaxation caution
the micro currents of your smartphone have a very low intensity they are not
invasive or perceivable I like how they say caution even before like good or
like not dangerous things they’re both reassuring and also
threatening they protect and they attack okay so I’m gonna press play and we’re
gonna start the electric microcurrents oh no suddenly the active micro currents
are happening you put on your face uh I feel like almost like a little bit of
like buzzing around my mustache area it feels almost like I’m bleaching my
mustache but at the same time it could placebo okay so I think
we can rule out being electrocuted which was a bit of a stretch to begin with
but I still wouldn’t recommend taking this in the bathtub something that’s a
little different than I expected was that they’re kind of just going like the
micro currents are just like happening I kind of thought I might be able to like
control them a little bit more you know almost like shock myself or let me like
play a little game or something but it does look like I’ve got some shopping
recommendations up here so let’s see but this is about
seductive glance impeccable look mascara plumping complex cream okay so it looks
like it’s maybe it’s trying to sell me their other products that they have I
love that they say this is ideal for Nordic photo types maybe from my last
name they were like you should get this blush you Nordic person you look like
the screamer as I’ve been thinking that Picasso painting yeah anyway especially
we do that we’ve got a 20 second countdown to the end of this thing wow
that was 10 minutes that went by so fast cuz I’m not shopping to do oh wow seven
six oh it went directly from 7 seconds to done okay so that was it I guess um
shall we take it off yes okay down there it looks normal it does look red or
anything red oh no no I thought I’d gotten it loose oh wow
actually that did hurt is that I like it there okay all right so let me take this
side off now oh oh that one was better alright so let’s put on the cream which
is our last step it feels pretty normal it tastes like
lemons you guys have eaten lotions yeah that one doesn’t taste good they’re not
really all edible okay so this is me a couple minutes after applying the cream
I think that it’s absorbed pretty well in I think in general I do look shinier
so I do look more hydrated in that sense but because I put the cream on it’s hard
for me to tell if the mask is what was special and like the microcurrents
really did anything so just to have a second opinion I’m gonna put the mask on
Tyler okay ty let’s do it alright so I’m really quick setting up Ty’s mask
I don’t think South because I could do this on my own
well you started doing it on your own and then you asked me for help almost
immediately yeah it’s actually true oh it is cool oh wow you look like a sexy
Santa ho ho oops sorry I got your sideburn – that wasn’t on purpose or
anything his revenge alright so let’s grab your little avatar
tail and uh plug it into my phone so I guess we both now had avatar sex with my
phone you ready for your beauty treatment yeah we show it to me again
we’ll look at your face yeah you put it really asked you to really
stupid-looking it’s almost am i well let’s do it ready yes press play do you
feel anything I’m trying so hard to feel if there’s anything I think if there’s
something it’s not like an electrical buzzing but it’s more like a message to
cool down the mask you think it’s actually temperature controlled yeah
well I assure that it wasn’t do anything persevere
no I’m like sure it’s doing something for me I brought Krusty to see if he
also thought you look like sexy Santa wait you know what this does feel like a
little spa treatment we’re not relaxed I know kitty
they have a cool on face mask I’m gonna be as hydrated a watermelon after this
all right how much time do you have left five minutes Jesus it’s gonna take
forever Krusty I’m very sorry I don’t think we
should be giving you a mask all right take it off here’s the money shot right
here uh yeah okay so the last step is to put a little cream on I think I look
more hydrated I don’t 115% but definitely uh more than 0% more hydrated
okay so Tyler seems to think that this thing changes temperature on his face I
couldn’t really feel anything I think that what I was feeling was placebo so
I’m almost wondering if there’s like no microcurrent and it’s just all the cream
so we’re gonna head to Home Depot really quickly to see if we can’t find
something that can help us see if there’s any actual electricity going
through this thing okay so we’re in the car all the way to Home Depot right now
too multimeter which will hopefully hook
onto the electrodes and tell us how much or if there is any electricity running
through the mask all right hydrated tie show me in the
fluorescent lights out and how nice and hydrated you look I’m sparkly look you
hydrated thank you alright so this is a digital multimeter
hopefully we should be able to see if there’s something being conducted all
right let’s get it okay so we’re back from our quick excursion to Home Depot
we’re not sure exactly what we’re doing we consulted our friend mark but I’m not
convinced that he knows what he’s doing either okay so I’m gonna turn it on I
think that 200m is like the lowest or maybe more like 2m yeah it’s good to it
so I’m gonna use these little detectors and try and touch this mask and see if I
can’t detect any microcurrents no maybe here no okay I wonder what would happen
if I unplug this right now so I pulled this one out halfway so I’ve got some
exposed metal basically so let’s see if I can now find the micro currents this
way I know we made little jump it did I swear they went up to three oh yeah I
did look oh my god that’s working yeah there
it is yeah holy crap there’s electricity in here for sure it’s very interesting
though because I can’t detect any electricity when I’m touching the actual
mask but they are putting electricity in this thing so it’s not just nonsense not
confirmed what that necessarily does but maybe you could sense it a little bit I
sensed it after a quick google search there seem to be a few legit looking
scientific papers that link the use of electric fields to skin rejuvenation and
therapy for degenerative skin diseases I’m not sure if that’s exactly what’s
happening here but there seems to be some science behind it all right so that
was pretty exciting I am very excited that we were able to actually detect
some electricity running through the mask but I’m still not convinced that my
face is a hundred and fifteen percent more hydrated and I also still wish that
there was more of a play element to the place skin mask like I thought I might
be able to do more concentrated bursts almost like tap on different things
on my phone and like you know sort of send different types of electrical
currents to my face so there wasn’t as much control or fun in the actual app as
I thought there might be and I also wish there was a little more sensation I’m
glad it didn’t hurt but I would like a little buzz just so you know it’s
working I just I need it to be a little more shocking not too shocking because
that seems scary it’s like a little thank you guys so much for watching if

  1. HELLO BBs! happy friday!!! i got this face mask smuggled to me from italy… and i'm glad i did! would you guys try this? xox, saf!

  2. I don't know how I missed this, but it was a delightful treat today, to find a Safiya video I hadn't seen before.
    Love you, Girl! I will watch you try anything!

  3. She looks truly aggravated when the adhesives touch her sideburns!! Its the cutest thing ever!!

  4. Saf: were gonna shock your face now
    Tyler: let's do it !!!
    😂 I love both of you so much so glad you share your lives with us it brings me joy honestly

  5. Ok girl you're so beautiful without makeup. I don't know why you need makeup but your beautiful the way you are. So keep on doing what you want ❤❤❤

  6. The character from spirited away they mentioned is called KAONASHI and I only know this because of Troye so…

  7. THE SCREAM IS BY MUNCH (expressionist) JESUS while Picasso is a cubist artist. Also I read comments about Van Gogh…he's a postimpressionist. Please a bit of culture you American guys…

  8. Idk why, but i found what Tyler said hilarious 3:14 . His humor and Safiya's is too much lmao. Much love Safiya and Tyler!

  9. the funny thing is that 115% actually isn't much
    115% of 2 is just 2.3
    115% of 800 is 920
    so odds are, this mask isn't actually that hydrating

  10. The fact that She still has that laptop cover on which she got from wish or I guess some secret box makes me so happy lol

  11. If you want to feel something I suggest you go to physiotherapy because you'll get more of a feeling then

  12. I don't think Tyler knows what "Money shot" means 9:47 HAHAHA still a good video! like always. Love your work guys

  13. Is this a one time use mask? I’d hope it comes with at least five more masks cause otherwise it’s a bit costly

  14. I love saf's videos because she really goes in depth with research for these products. it's nice to have all my curious questions answered lol

  15. Just re-watched this video after taking engineering physics II…. HONEY THAT'S HOW YOU BLOW OUT A FUSE IN YOUR ANMETER!

  16. Okay this is so random and I apologise in advance but I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone on YouTube with a pornhub profile

  17. There’s an unusual amount of beastiality in Avatar (if they “plug in” for sex, what are they doing when they “plug in” to an animal to “tame” them?). I’d probably feel the electricity because my family has a weird high-tolerance/electro conductive thing going on. My grandad was an electrician & was in “The Guinness Book of World Records” for surviving being electrocuted by the most volts (unfortunately it has since been broken many times, it’s not a record anyone *wants*)

  18. “The scream, you know the PICASSO painting?”
    My Norwegian is offended. MUNCH, TYLER, EDWARD MUNCH. NOT PICASSO.

  19. Hello! Don't know if you've heard this or not but if you were not touching them to the same part of the mask (top vs bottom), the current wouldnt close in the loop and you wouldn't get any current and why you got it when you touched the metal bits. Just a fun fact from someone with a basic electrical engineering education. 🙂

  20. „this picasso painting. with the scream“ he said. my school brain activates and sends alarm signal.

  21. anyone else thinking that %115 percent isnt that much. thats only 1.15x more hydrated lol

  22. omg, watching you try to use a multimeter was worth the price of admission. which was nothing. but still, it was great. send that mask to me or someone with an oscilloscope and we can see what it's really doing.

  23. My question is how did she get an amp reading when she wasn’t in series with the wire. Like I am still no convinced that was some fluke or something.
