Okachi Gliya Facial Steamer
We put the Okachi Gliya Nano Facial Steamer to the test after receiving a complimentary sample from the brand. Keep reading for our full product review.
It’s possible you’ve experienced a nice facial steam at one time or another, yet at-home electrical skincare devices can be tricky when we aren’t sure which ones are really worth investing our money in. There are a few reasons why using a facial steamer can provide short and long-term benefits, such as promoting circulation, cleansing, helping to release trapped oil, and promoting the longevity of your skincare products. Ahead, we reviewed Okachi Gliya Nano Facial Steamer to get an idea of what at-home facial steaming was like, and honestly, we cannot believe we haven’t been doing this all along.

About My Skin: I want it to glow 24/7
I have combination/oily/sensitive skin and I want it to glow constantly, all year round. I have experienced texture issues and blackheads along with the occasional break-out, and anti-aging is also at the top of my list as far as concerns go. I have a routine skincare regime that I do each morning and night, but at-home steaming has never been a part of my daily or weekly process when it comes to my skin. I have never tried an at-home steamer before, I’ve only received steam treatments when getting a facial in a spa.
How To Apply: Turn it on and relax
Using this steamer is incredibly easy, so easy, I didn’t even need to read the manual the first time I used it. All you need to do is fill the back compartment with purified water, plug it in, and press the power button. There is a mirror that is attached to the front of the steamer, you will simply need to lift this up to see the spout where the steam will come out of. The light will blink while the steamer is heating up and you’ll see steam start to pour out when it’s ready. It’s best practice to stay at least 8-10 inches from the spout to ensure you’re not too close, and the steamer is set to a timer of 15 minutes. The timer is key, as it’s easy to sit in front of a steamer for an extended period of time and lose track of how long we’ve been there, which can be too much for the skin if over-exposed.
For the most comfortable experience, you will want to put the steamer on a surface that’s high enough to where you aren’t bending over too much or straining your neck, so the entire experience is enjoyable. When the steamer is finished running the cycle, it will auto-shut off unless you physically turn the power button off yourself. An important thing to also take note about this steamer, is it uses nano-ionic technology that converts water into nano-sized molecules that help to penetrate the skin more deeply to reach stubborn impurities and cleanse.
“When I looked at my skin after my steaming session compared to when I started, I immediately couldn’t believe that I have not been doing this all along. For someone who is extra considerate around skincare and taking care of my face, the steaming component has been what’s missing from my routine.”
There are extraction and pimple tools included with the steamer, so if you find you need to tackle any blackheads or breakouts after your steaming session, you have the option to do so, just remember that while you might be able to remove a blackhead here and there, it’s important to seek guidance from a dermatologist or professional esthetician when tackling any kind of inflammation on the skin.
The Results: Dewy, glowy, hydrating goddess
When I looked at my skin after my steaming session compared to when I started, I immediately couldn’t believe that I have not been doing this all along. For someone who is extra considerate around skincare and taking care of my face, the steaming component has been what’s missing from my routine. I loved the way my skin felt and looked, very supple, hydrated, and flake-free. My complexion was glowing, my pores had been detoxed, and my skincare absorbed so well. I also loved the way my makeup looked after using the steamer and will continue to steam frequently.

This Okachi Gliya Nano Facial Steamer is well worth the money if you’re looking for something easy you can use from home on a daily basis that gets the job done. With everything you’re getting with the steamer and the features along with being incredibly simple to use and affordable, we deem it a necessary purchase.
