My fellow beauty junkies,
I’m finally ready to talk about the ultimate cleansing brush that is luxurious and ever-so life changing. I was an avid Clarisonic user for about 4 months before the device stopped working. It was pretty much the end of beauty cleansing tools for me at that point.
Honestly speaking, I hate the Clarisonic. It’s bulky, you have to change the brush head often, the battery life sucks and oh yea did I mention it it broke after only a few months? I can’t stand the water dripping down my neck. The Clarisonic is so damn messy & I’m still mad about it. I can’t even remember if we sent it back or if it’s buried somewhere in my sister’s drawer. But let’s move on to what you’re really here for.
What is a Foreo Luna?
It is a deep-cleansing facial [electronic + waterproof] device. The beauty tool is [sorta?] shaped like an egg and is probably smaller than the size of your hand. I love the size of this thing because it’s perfect to take in your beauty bag when travelling.
The Luna has silicone bristles that work to remove makeup, deeply cleanse your face and exfoliate the skin.
Acne is not something I struggle with. Partly because I’m a skincare freak and partly because of the YAZ birth control I take. So I can’t tell you from personal experience that it’s cleared up any acne because I don’t have any. [Are you eye-rolling yet? LOL]
However...I have read a ton amazon reviews where people have stated its cleared up their blemishes. So if it’s something you struggle with, you need this yesterday.
I am obsessed with the Luna because..
I prefer not to get my face under the sink. I sound like a broken record at this point, but I HATE getting my face soaked because it’s a pain in the ass when you have eyelash extensions. So I really like using this because it avoids a watery mess. I just pat my face down with a bit of water, add my favorite Pixi gel cleanser to the Luna and voila!
The egg shape makes the absolute PERFECT makeup remover because the tip of the device works so well under the eyes. I find it so difficult to remove makeup in the inner corner of my eye [where I cake myself with concealer] and the tip of the tool is small enough to reach the area.
It’s the best thing I’ve ever used as a makeup remover.
The reverse side of the device is ring shaped and is the massaging aspect that promotes circulation in your skin [in other words, prevents wrinkles]. it’s not something I remember to use often though.
The only negative thing I have to say about the Foreo Luna is its price point. It’s really freakin’ expensive. I want to say it ranges from $130-$200 depending on the version you get. I got so lucky and found the last Luna 2 at my TJ-Maxx for $60. I wasn’t even looking for a beauty cleanser at the time and I feel like It found me. At least that’s what I tell myself every time I make an impulsive purchase ha-ha.
My advice is to look out for Black Friday deals or the annual Sephora sale whenever that is. There’s also the option of hunting down every single TJ-Maxx in town if you feel like going on an adventure.
Other than that, I am so satisfied with this beauty device. Here’s a little more on what it does:
removes dead skin cells
reduces signs of ageing [reverse side of the device]
improves absorption of skincare products
promotes clearer, brighter, and healthier looking skin
I 100% recommend the Luna Foreo regardless of what skin type you have. Mostly because half the time you think you’ve fully removed your makeup….you probably haven’t. And even if you don’t wear makeup often, it works so well after a sweaty workout or long day. My face feels so much smoother now and I’m confident that I’m fully cleansing my skin.
