Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you're all doing fab.
I've had a lot of questions about the FOREO devices ever since I've shown on Instagram that I've been using the Luna 2 Sensitive (See the photo below) and I thought what better time to review since FOREO is offering 21% off their entire range today only on their site using the code "SUMMER" (Direct link here):
So I've been using my device for a little over two months now and I think I've formed my full opinion of it. I really do like the little guy, however, I don't think it's 100% essential for everyone out there. I do find the FOREO Luna series superior to the Clarisonic in terms of cost (You won't need to buy brush heads ever), hygiene (The FOREO Luna is made of nonporous silicone, so, it won't harbor bacteria like a nylon brush would), and convenience (You only need to charge the Luna 2 every seven months if you're using it daily). So, if you're looking to treat yourself to a new cleansing device, I do think the Luna 2 is a great option.
There are currently four devices in the Luna 2 series: Normal, Combination, Oily, and Sensitive. I opted for the Sensitive device as it has smaller touchpoints across the entire surface of the brush, where the other brushes either graduate to larger touchpoints as you move up the brush or have larger touchpoints all over. In comparison to the original LUNA, the touchpoints are longer and more flexible, offering a more gentle cleanse than even the original device as well.
I'm currently using my device in the morning maybe twice a week pre-shaving to help prep my skin for a smoother shave and I also use the anti-aging mode to apply different skincare products. I made a quick video in my bathroom to show you how I'm using my device (This is unlisted and will not show up on my channel, so, congrats on coming to the blog for exclusive content!):
As someone who subscribes to regular chemical exfoliation and is also a washcloth + cleansing balm user, I don't need my Luna 2 for exfoliation, so, I tend to reach for the anti-aging mode more than I do the cleansing side. FOREO has launched the Iris (Available here) which is specifically designed for applying product to the eye area. I'm considering picking this up, however, I do like that I can use my LUNA 2 for more than just my eye area when it comes to applying skincare.
So to recap, I feel like the FOREO Luna 2 is a great option if you're looking to incorporate a cleansing device in your routine. FOREO does offer several different styles of device (their original series is still available on their site as well) plus other categories of product (Chris and I both love our Issa Hybrid toothbrushes). I don't think using a cleansing device is essential to anyone's skincare routine, but if it will promote using good skincare practices such as proper cleansing and is your main source of exfoliation, I'd definitely say go for it. I do love my Luna 2 for the application of product and would definitely recommend that.
I hope this was helpful for those of you considering picking up a FOREO device. Let me know your thoughts if you have a device and for those of you like myself with more than one, which one is your favorite?
