I’m big into skin care, but I’ve been lax the last couple of months, so I’m in overdrive these days whipping my skin back into shape. When I was sent the FOREO Luna Mini 2 cleansing device and new FOREO Day and Night cleansers, I was super excited to try them out. I’ve heard amazing things about the FOREO Luna, but being a long (loooong) time Clarisonic user, I wasn’t sure if I needed the FOREO Luna, too. But more on that later. First, the cleansers.
This cleansing duo consists of a day and night cleanser that addresses the unique skin care needs we have at the beginning and end of the day. The Day Cleanser is hands down my favorite of the two. The light citrus scent is a delightful treat to wake me up in the morning and the uber-gentle cleanser gets my skin clean and prepped for makeup. The Night Cleanser is like a balm that helps to break down makeup and emulsifies when you add water to create a light cleansing milk. The thing that I loved about both of these cleansers is that they never strip or dry out the skin. Ever. I always struggle with cleansers and these two were awesome. I will say, however, that the Night Cleanser is not going to remove tons of makeup, so if you’re wearing a full face, or full coverage foundation, you’ll want to remove your makeup first before cleansing your skin. I always double cleanse anyway, so it wasn’t a big deal for me.
Now, on to the FOREO Luna Mini 2! Long story short, I love this device! As I mentioned before, I’ve been using a Clarisonic for years and I found that there are some differences that make the Luna worth a purchase if you’re in the market for a cleaning device. First, the Luna is super gentle and the silicone nubs never feel rough on the skin or dry your skin out they way brush bristles can.
The Luna Mini 2‘s T-Sonic pulsations remove 99.5% of dirt and oil, makeup and dead skin cells, all without irritating the skin. It even has 8 different cleaning modes, so you can really customize your clean to what your skin needs. It’s super-hygenic and can last an impressive 5 months on one single charge. At first look, I was concerned that the cleansing surface would be too small, but it’s actually perfect and the handheld size if comfortable to hold.
If you have sensitive skin, or are looking for an alternative to the Clarisonic, I highly recommend the FOREO Luna and urge you to check it out. As I said, the cleansers are amazing and I think they work great for all skin types. Happy cleansing!
