Overall:

First off, I was a skeptic. Not just about FOREO, but about vibrating and sonic cleansing brushes in general. Boy, was I proven wrong! This is the best cleanse I’ve had in a long time. 1 minute twice a day and you’ll have brighter, clearer looking skin.

They say:

 The LUNA mini 2 is an enhanced T-Sonic™ (transdermal sonic) face brush with eight adjustable intensities for a fully customisable cleansing experience. The updated 3-zone face brush is optimized for all skin types and comes in five exciting new colors – Aquamarine, Fuchsia, Midnight, Pearl Pink and Sunflower Yellow – along with the original Mint.

This revolutionary sonic face brush eliminates blemish-causing impurities while remaining extremely gentle on the skin. All it takes is one minute twice a day for a fresh, clear and even-looking complexion. The 3-zone face brush is now 50% larger and made with softer silicone for a cleansing experience suitable for every skin type.  Thinner touch-points gently cleanse sensitive and normal skin. Thicker touch-points for precision cleansing. Broader touch-points on the reverse side address oilier skin. The 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute at 2X the power deliver the unique ability to remove 99.5% of dirt and oil, as well as makeup residue and dead skin cells, and exfoliate without irritating the skin.

Ultra-hygienic silicone is nonporous to resist bacteria buildup, 35X more hygienic than standard cleansing brushes. 100% waterproof for use in bath or shower, 300 uses per full charge, Longer touch-points extend reach and enhance softness. Thicker silicone body for enhanced comfort and performance.

Application:

Dampen your face and apply your favorite cleanser. Wet the LUNA mini 2 and turn on. Gently glide the LUNA mini 2’s brush in circular motions over your face for 1 minute. Rinse and dry your face. Apply your additional skincare products as desired.

We say:

Like I said before I was a skeptic. And I was converted from the first use. I’ve been using it with my everyday gentle foaming cleanser on the lowest setting and I’ve noticed the difference straight away. My skin is deeply cleansed but it doesn’t feel uncomfortable or over stripped. They recommend to avoid grainy cleansers as these might damage the gentle silicone bristles.

Personally I always remove my makeup first using a cleansing milk or oil – we’ve covered the importance of the double cleanse – and then wash my face with a foaming cleanser. This is when I introduce the cleansing device. The LUNA mini 2 gives you a warning in the form of a buzz and a light flicker when it’s time to move on to another area of your face while you’re cleansing. If you go over the recommended 1 minute, the device will turn itself off after 3 mins to ensure you don’t overdo it. You can use that time to do your neck also. You need only to move the device in circular motions over your skin, including the eye area, without applying hardly any pressure, and the device does the rest.

The different bristles are perfect for different areas of your face. I use the wider bristles at the back of the device on my forehead, temples and nose, which are oilier and more prone to breakouts, the precision bristles at the top for my eye contour and lip area and around my nose and the softer bristles everywhere else. I feel it minimised my need to exfoliate also.

I’ve been using it for a few weeks and only charged it the one initial time, so I’m keeping them to the 5 months promise. Seems to be holding. And I’ve used it in the shower, so definitely waterproof. And so practical!

Make sure to wash it and dry it gently after each use to keep the bristles in top condition, follow their care guidelines and you have a device that will last you a long, long time.

Effectiveness:

Absolutely works, wonderfully! 5 stars

Packaging:

It has clear instructions inside, design is clear so you can see the product straight away, includes charging cable. 5 stars

Value for Money:

About the same as other cleansing brushes on the market with similar costumising features, mid-to-high range. As a long term investment, worth it. 4 stars
