What is it?
This KINGDOMBEAUTY Nanosteamer Nano Ionic Facial Steamer is a face steamer using the latest technology to generate consistent and uniform hot steam for facial sauna sessions. According to the manufacturer or distributor, it can also serve as a room humidifier.
How does it work?
Like every other steamer we tested, this machine uses the same system: a combination of a heating element with an ultrasonic vaporizer to create strong hot steam. First, you need to fill up the water reservoir. You turn on the machine to heat up the water and create hot steam within a few minutes.
Who is the distributor?
The distributor is the queen beauty LLC Company that sells mostly beauty devices. They also sell mostly on amazon. They are the distributor of the first machine of our ranking. From what we heard and read, this is a reliable company with many good reviews.

My KINGDOMBEAUTY Nanosteamer Nano Ionic Facial Steamer review
If you have already read some of my reviews, then you already know that I like machines to be simple and squarish. That is why I liked this machine from the get go in terms of design. It looks really great in a bathroom or on a desk. Ok ok it is subjective. But this machine is simple and has that Zen relaxing look if you get my drift.
It is portable, lightweight and easy to carry with the handle if you need to. It looks pretty solid and robust enough. I also like the cover, which is convenient and protects the machine from dust if you don’t use for a while… but frankly I doubt you would let it sit unused.
Ok so let’s check the machine in detail.
The KINGDOMBEAUTY Nanosteamer Nano Ionic Facial Steamer has a 100ML water tank that gives about 15-20 minutes of hot steam, which is enough to get one face steaming session. The minimal time for an effective face sauna session is anywhere between 10-12 minutes, because you need enough time for your skin to boost blood circulation, sweat and detox to flush out toxins, dirt and excessive oil from the pores. This water reservoir is big enough but some machines have a larger capacity water tank (320 ml and 200ml), which can give you more versatility.
Quality of steam: flow and “size” of steam
How is the steam? I found it pretty much the same as the other machines we tested. Not much better. Not worse. Mind you, they use the same technology with the same elements, so no wonder. Yeah, keep in mind most face steamers generate the same kind of steam.
I know each manufacturer will claim their machine is better, that it uses a super nano ultra sonic element bla bla, I think there is probably some truth in it but I also think they do tend to exaggerate…So as we told you in our buying guide, don’t let them play marketing tricks on you.
As for the consistency, you will need to wait at least 1-2 minutes to get some steam. When the water is fully heated up, then you will get a more consistent steam flow after a few more minutes.
Overall, the steam is strong enough and uniform with an average temperature of 40°C at 20 cm from the nozzle.
This is a feature that is said to sterilize the steam via a UV lamp. We think it is useless as steam is sterile with such a temperature. Besides to get proper ozone therapy you would need a high-quality ozone generator. From what we know a real ozone generator would cost around $1000 so I think the ozone function in this machine (and every other machine around that budget) is clearly not as effective.
So, in my opinion, it is not very effective but still I guess it probably can help a little. I have the same doubts about the ozone function in the machine we ranked first. This is not what we look for in a face steamer anyway so whether a machine has it or not, should not be taken into account for your choice. (Just our opinion of course…. We would be happy to get more evidence from each manufacturer or distributor.)
Speed of use
How long does it take to get some steam? It is the time you need to heat up the water in the water tank. This reservoir has a capacity of 100 ml. We had to wait about 1-2 minutes at least. Note that it also depends on the room temperature and the initial water temperature.
The face steamer was running very smoothly without making noise. There was just a little noise (a kind of vibration) when I used it the first time, but since then nothing. Maybe it was my desk, which was not stable. I am not sure.
The device is made up of hard plastic; it is quite robust. The only weak point could be the cover.
Automatic shut off
If there is no more water left in the water tank, the steamer will automatically shut off. This feature is handy and convenient, as you don’t need to worry about it while relaxing during your face sauna.
This KINGDOMBEAUTY Nanosteamer Nano Ionic Facial Steamer has a few optional features that can be useful:
- It has an adjustable nozzle, which enables you to set up your preferred spraying angle. This is super convenient as you can get the steam to any area you want. ( nose, face, chest etc..)
- It has a nice built-in mirror.
You get a sweet 2-Year Warranty here, which is more than the standard 1-year warranty with most face steamers in the market.
This machine is usually sold at $49. This price is quite reasonable if we take into account the size of the water tank and the optional features. Yet, it could be a little cheaper if we compare it to the other devices from our Top 3.
I had pretty good results with this machine too. The hot steam was consistent, not too much or too little for my face. I used it for 2 weeks and it really made my skin softer and more hydrated. It has enough capacity to get you at least 15- 20 mn of steam.
If you intend to use it to alleviate or fight dry air, this might be not enough as the water chamber is a bit too small. 100 ml is good but for more versatility you should maybe stick with a larger reservoir. It also had a light plastic smell with the first time use, which was gone after the 2nd use.
- Large water tank of 100 ml
- Adjustable nozzle
- In built mirror
- 2 year warranty
- Nice design
- May have a plastic smell for the first time use.
- The water tank is a bit small to use it as a room humidifier.
The KINGDOMBEAUTY Nanosteamer Nano Ionic Facial Steamer is a powerful steamer with a nice design. Its water reservoir is large enough to get you enough steam for your face sauna. However, it could be a bit larger for more versatility. That is why we ranked this machine third behind the 1st machine and the 2nd machine, which both have larger capacity and more optional features.
