Last month I received a couple of new skincare tools as birthday gifts from my Mama Bear and today I’m sharing the first of the two items! I had never heard of this device until I opened up the present, so it is completely new to me and I don’t know much about it at this point (other than what I’ve learned in my quick research), but I received the FOREO Luna Mini 2 in the color Fuchsia!
In a nutshell, this is a silicone facial cleansing brush that uses T-Sonic pulsation technology to cleanse the skin.
The biggest feature that got me excited about this product is that the device is made out of non-porous material therefore it is bacteria resistant! I’ve been using a Clarisonic (a holy grail skincare item of mine) for the past 5 years and I love it, but I dislike that you have to switch out the brush heads because they are quite pricey.
The packaging was minimalistic, and the main components were the device itself plus the charging cable (which you can connect to any USB brick). I saw somewhere (I can’t remember exactly where) that one 1-hour charge is supposed to last up to 5 months. If that’s the case I will be pleasantly surprised! Here are some close up images of the silicone bristles.
The front of the brush is called the “general-cleansing zone” and the bristles are the smallest here. At the very top of the front there is a smaller section of bristles to be used for precision cleansing.
The back of the device has larger bristles and is called the “deep-cleansing zone”.
- Available in 6 different color options.
- 1 power button; (- / +) buttons allow for 8 different intensity settings.
- Recommended for all skin types.
CLAIMS ON FOREO’S WEBSITE:
- T-Sonic pulsations can remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil.
- Will exfoliate without irritating the skin.
- Overall you can experience a deeper cleanse while still being gentle, to reveal healthier looking skin.
I’ve only used the device a handful of times at this point and my thoughts on it so far are that first off, it is much less intense of a cleanse than when I compare it to my Clarisonic, so right off the bat I knew that I would not be using it at night if I had worn any makeup during the day. HOWEVER, my Clarisonic is too intense for twice-a-day use, so I am finding that the FOREO is perfect for my morning skincare routine! It is very comfortable in the hand, and to be quite honest it feels like a gentle massage on the skin! It also doesn’t create suds the way that my Clarisonic does, so if you like to see soapiness as you wash your face, I would not recommend this to you. If you have sensitive skin, I definitely would recommend you giving this a try because it is very gentle on the skin and again, it feels somewhat like a mini massage! I have fairly sensitive skin and I haven’t turned pinky-red after any uses so far which I love! As with any first impressions, I’d like to try this out a bit more before I do a full in-depth review, so I’ll be back with that at a later point.
Have you tried any FOREO skincare devices?!
