I’m amazed it has taken me this long to write about this beauty. It’s been a part of my everyday skincare routine for months now, and the key reason why I’ve been able to keep my skin blemish free.
It is offered in 4 different devices: combination (blue), oily (green) sensitive (purple), and normal (pink). I purchased the one for normal skin during the Sephora VIB sale a while ago, and I haven’t put it down since.
For the longest time I went back and forth between the Foreo Luna and the Clarisonic, but I was concerned that the Clarisonic would be too harsh on my skin. Plus the idea of having to repurchase the heads every couple of months was something I financially did not want to take on. When I heard that the Foreo Luna was re-chargeable, and didn’t need replacements I started diving into more research about it. The deciding factor for me was the pulsating option. It felt light enough to where it wouldn’t break me out but strong enough to exfoliate and cleanse my skin.
The (+) and (-) signs are used to adjust the pulsating intensity. I believe it comes pre-set to maximum so when I first started using it, it left red dots all over my skin. I highly recommend changing the intensity to something lower for everyday cleaning. I only use the highest intensity when I’m scrubbing off a mask or when I’m deep cleansing (which I do once a week).
The Foreo Luna comes with two segments to your cleansing routine. The first is meant for the front of the Luna, in which it pauses every 20 seconds to let you know to move to the other part of your face. The second segment is meant for the back of the luna, which is the anti-aging portion of the routine. I personally don’t like the way the back of the Luna feels so I don’t use it; instead, I use the second segment to exfoliate my lips. After the first segment I rinse off my Foreo Luna, and I add exfoliant to my lips (currently using the one from bite beauty). I scrub for about 30 seconds and then rinse.
I find that it pairs best with liquid cleansers and exfoliators, instead of balms or gels. I prefer to apply cleanser directly on the Luna, but it works just the same if you apply to your face first and then scrub. The silicon makes it extremely easy to clean and I’m never leery about leaving it in the shower. I use this every single day and I have only charged it once in the 6 months. The battery life is out of this world amazing!
All in all, I love using it and would highly recommend it for us dry to normal girls!
