The best in beauty doesn’t always come in a bottle
Gadget Alert: Are you ready to hear about something new and exciting? Buckle your seatbelts wehearters! I am excited to introduce you to one of the latest and most talked about beauty gadgets on the market, Luna by Foreo .
Luna is a new revolutionary anti-aging and facial cleansing system. The angels are singing from the heavens “AAAHHH.” (You know how I love double duty items.)
The Foreo company comes to us from Stockholm, Sweden, and their mission is “beauty beyond cosmetics.” This is the first company to use silicone in a unique anti-aging and cleansing device. Silicone is resistant to bacteria and this makes it the ideal substance to use in cleansing.
Their promise is your face will be six times cleaner than washing by hand and change your cleansing routing in two minutes or less. This is intriguing because even the busiest person has two minutes, right?
Luna is a non-abrasive cleansing brush. In fact, it is a brush without any bristles. The Luna has rounded silicone “touch points” molded in specific alignments to customize to different skin types. T-Sonic™ (Transdermal Sonic) pulsations are applied across the dermal surface to instantly refresh the look and feel of the skin.
The original Luna is available in three models, each retailing for $199:
• LUNA for Ultra-Sensitive Skin
• LUNA for Sensitive/Normal Skin
• LUNA for Combination Skin
I tested the LUNA for Sensitive/Normal Skin and found that my skin got a gentler but, deeper clean. The touch points lift away impurities and dead skin cells. Lifting out the impurities is not always pretty. I did have some breakouts come to the surface at first but, overall with Luna my skin did improve.
You can adjust the pressure of the touch points with a plus/minus system that actually recalls your last setting. I found this to be very advantageous in problem areas. This feels like getting a gentle massage. There is not any abrasive twisting or pulling that could result in damage to the skin.
I have to be honest, Luna’s anti-aging properties was actually the hook that got me most excited. After all, who wants to look their age? The anti aging mode reminded me of reflexology for the face. Using the back side of the Luna in this mode relaxes facial muscles and provides a boost of microcirculation that supports the collagen and elastin.
• Deep gentle cleaning
• Products absorb deeply increasing their overall effectiveness
• No ongoing costs for replacement brushes
• Shape is strange to get used to at first
Overall, this gadget loving girl was pleased with the Luna by Foreo. It’s simple to use, offers a thoroughly clean face without bothering my (sometimes) sensitive skin and, let’s face it, is kind of fun to use – meaning lazy people may be more likely to wash their face before bed. I’m still testing and waiting to see the anti-aging benefits – check the comments to see my latest thoughts!
