If anyone ever asks you for your go-to skincare secret, the last thing they want you to say is water. After all, wouldn’t we know by now if a healthy dose of H2O was all it took to achieve a glowing complexion? Even so, the latest trend sweeping the beauty world challenges that notion by showing us the power of steam — and according to shoppers, this $50 tool is all you need to make the most of its pore-clearing capabilities.
The NanoSteamer from Pure Daily Care holds the title of Amazon’s top-selling facial steamer, and its repertoire of standout features backs up the hype. The compact device uses a conventional heating system with an ultrasonic vaporizer to produce negatively-charged nano steam. The brand says that the process makes water particles up to ten times more effective in penetrating skin, thereby opening and unclogging pores.
The facial steamer’s 200 milliliter water tank allows for a 30-minute run time, while its wide steam spout ensures you’ll make the most of every second. As a bonus, every order comes with a five-piece stainless steel skincare kit for extracting blemishes.

More than 11,000 customers have given the steamer a five-star rating, with over 2,000 taking the time to write a rave review.
“I suffer from blackheads all over my face but especially worry about the ones I get around my lips. I wasn’t able to get them out without hurting the sensitive skin there until I got this steamer,” one reviewer wrote. “But almost better than the product are the people behind the scenes. I made a stupid decision and accidentally melted the water reservoir — when I emailed the company, not only did they respond within a couple of hours, they replaced the part for free!”
Others love the NanoSteamer‘s added towel heating component, which uses an inner chamber to warm washcloths with steam.
“I have used the towel heating feature and it’s amazing for when I want a small hot towel at home. That was part of the reason I ordered this version and it was worth it,” said another shopper, who also praised the steamer’s effects on their skin. “I have seen an almost immediate result in my skin condition… I apply lots of serums and creams at nighttime and my face feels fuller and plumper, like the steaming makes the absorption of my serums better. I am now a religious steamer and my face is happy about it.”
We’ll have to rethink our stance on water as a skincare remedy. In the meantime, you can shop the affordable NanoSteamer on Amazon now.
