Product Review: Foreo Luna Mini 2

      I can't believe the last time I posted was almost two months ago! Time flies, and I still feel like I have a ton of planning to do for the wedding. It's less than 3 months away at this point! Since the date is fast approaching, I've been trying to keep my skin in top condition. After a recent bout of breakouts after I came back to New York from California, it's now back to normal and right now I only have blemishes that are in the healing stage. I attribute the Foreo Luna Mini 2 cleansing tool to a part of the reason why I have been able to keep my skin clear. And yes, I had been using the Clarisonic Mia prior to the Luna and let me tell you the reasons why I think the Mini is superior to the Clarisonic.

Foreo Luna Mini 2
Price: $139

A waterproof cleansing device for all skin types that deeply yet gently cleanses for healthier, radiant, more youthful-looking skin. The LUNA™ mini 2 marks a radical new approach to skin care by being the only facial-cleansing device that combines T-Sonic™ pulsations to effectively cleanse the skin with a nonabrasive silicone brush that remains totally gentle and pleasant to use on the face. And with its smart design, this compact, colorful, and travel-friendly device lasts up to five months from one full charge, and is fully waterproof for seamless integration into any skin care routine. The cleansing device deeply cleanses with up to 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute channeled through silicone touch-points for refined, clear, and purified skin. 


      I always hated that you had to repurchase the cleansing brushes on Clarisonics. It's a money pit and I always felt uncomfortable with the possible bacteria on the brush. I also just never really knew when was the ideal time to change it (Clarisonic says every 3 months for best results but honestly who really does that). So when the first Foreo Luna came out I was intrigued, but wanted to wait to see what others thought of it. It mostly got good reviews saying that it was gentle but cleansed your skin well, and best part was that the body was all silicone so that you just had to wash off the residue and it's good to go again - no replacement. The problem I had with the Clarisonic cleansing devices is that they are actually quite harsh on your skin. When I first got the Mia, I used it day and night but it just irritated my skin even more! I probably suffered more breakouts because of it. After trial and error, I found out that my skin can only really tolerate the Clarisonic once a week, maybe twice if I needed another deep cleanse for the week. For the Luna Mini 2, I can use it every night and my skin doesn't feel irritated. It cleanses so gently that you almost don't feel that it's even doing anything - but it is. Just a small amount of a foaming cleanser (and I stress foaming, because I've used gel cleansers that don't really foam and it just doesn't cleanse as well as a true foaming one), I use the Belif Creamy Moist Cleanser with mine and it works very well, you just swipe it around your face with no pressure and let the vibrations and silicone nubs do the work for you. It also vibrates 4 different times so you know when to move it to another area of the face. I personally do one cheek, then move to the other, then my forehead, and lastly my nose and chin area. You'll know when you should stop because the device will vibrate twice. I use the normal side with the finer nubs. I don't really use the other side which is for more oilier areas of the skin - I find the finer nubs give me a deep enough cleanse. You can also bump up the intensity or lower it depending on the condition of your skin.


Concluding Remarks

      Highly recommended. It's a skincare routine changer for me. It's hygienic, convenient, and gentle enough for everyday use. It's what I wished the Clarisonic would have been for me. It's a little pricey I know, but it's a one time buy-in investment and you never have to buy brush heads! I love mine and I can't live without it now. If I lost it, I would have to go out immediately to purchase another one. I'm really glad I made the investment and it's been one of the best skincare investments I've made in a while!
