FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

In the world of facial cleansing devices, one stands out from the crowd – the FOREO LUNA ™  for Women ($199).

The typical skin care brush is battery operated with a cleansing brush that eventually wears out and needs replacing.  I have owned my FOREO LUNA™ for four years now, and it not only doesn’t show any signs of wear, I’ve only had to charge it one time — and that’s with using it almost every single day.  This unique little pink machine is truly beyond impressive.

The FOREO LUNA™ is not just a facial cleansing brush:

  • Organic design – 100% waterproof, fully rechargeable for 450 uses at a time, and it looks beautiful as well! Transdermal sonic pulsations, rather than standard oscillation, gently stimulate blood flow beneath the skin’s surface, cleansing from the inside out and smoothing away the signs of aging in a similar way to the Botox® effect.
  • Nonabrasive brush surfaces made from soft, smooth silicone – the first of their kind – making it ultra-gentle and actually pleasant to use on the skin.
  • So effective, you notice a visible difference in skin tone after just 3 days, and your face will feel softer and invigorated after just one use.

The pink version, which is the one I have, is for sensitive/normal skin. There are two other options available – the white version is for ultra-sensitive skin and the blue version is for combination skin.  There is also a LUNA™ for Men made for men’s skin, and it comes in black, a more manly color.

The LUNA™ is a silicone facial cleanser with small nubs that vibrate.  The transdermal sonic pulsations bring dirt and grime up and out of pores, which not only cleanses skin but also perfectly primes it for your skin care products.  Because skin is cleansed and exfoliated, it helps your serums and moisturizers absorb and increased their efficacy.

While it isn’t absolutely necessary, I like to pre-cleanse first with a makeup remover.  I find that with the surface dirt gone, the LUNA™ can cleanse even more deeply.  The intensity of the pulsations is controlled via the plus and minus buttons that are right next to the on/off button.

You don’t have to press hard at all for this gem to work.  Light pressure is all that’s needed, and the rounded shape makes it easy to get into awkward areas like around the nose and under the eyes.  I first get my face wet, then apply cleanser, then use the LUNA™ in a circular motion. It really only takes about two minutes to cleanse your whole face.  Once I rinse and dry my face, I use the other side of the LUNA™  for a quick anti-aging massage.

The center button activates the lower-frequency Anti-Aging Mode, which you then press on five different points for 12 seconds each – between eyebrows, right temple, right nasolabial fold, left nasolabial fold, then the left temple. This light massage relaxes those tension points and help prevent lines and wrinkles. Plus, it increases the blood circulation to those areas which increases collagen and elastin production. All that equals firmer skin with better elasticity.  Besides, it’s just a great way to relax and pamper yourself.  I use it right after cleansing, I just flip the LUNA™  around, press the center button, and enjoy the next minute. It feels great and after my skin definitely glows.  You can also use it with your favorite skin care creams or serums.

FOREO says that once charged, the LUNA™ lasts for at least 450 uses.  I say it last for many more than that, and it is perfect for travel since you don’t need the charger cord.  It also comes with a handy silky travel pouch and it’s totally waterproof so you can use it in the shower without worry.

If you aren’t sold yet, consider this – the initial purchase is the total investment.  There are no replacement brushes to buy, and the FOREO LUNA™ is very hygienic.  I can personally vouch for the longevity of the brush.  Like I said, four years of constant use and while my LUNA™ looks well loved, the little nubs haven’t worn away at all.

MelodySusie Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush

MelodySusie Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush Silicon Vibrating Waterproof Facial Cleansing System (Rose)

I’ve been using a sonic facial cleansing machine for about three years now. It actually JUST ran out of juice, and since it’s been three years of course I can’t find the charger cord!! So I was definitely happy when MelodySusie sent their Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush to try. The retail price for this is normally $79.99, but it’s on sale right now for $39.99. Compared to the $200 price tag of my original brush, this one is a steal.

This little gem looks a lot like my original sonic facial cleanser, although it’s not exact. The MelodySusie version is smaller and has a different shape – sort of wavy whereas my original one is oval. The MelodySusie comes in pink or blue, and it comes with a USB charging cord. You can bet I will be much more careful when I store this one!!

 The best way to use this (or any sonic facial cleansing brush) is as the second step in double cleansing. First, remove makeup using a makeup remover – my all time favorite is Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover ($15). I actually always have at least three of these on hand – one I am using and two backups.

After removing makeup, wet skin and apply face cleanser, then use the MelodySusie brush. It works in the cleanser and massages skin. The 3 button interface is exactly like my original sonic facial cleanser. It also has many other of the same features, such as the long-lasting charge and being 100% waterproof. I find the texture of the MelodySusie brush is slightly different from my original brush…just a little less flexible and soft. It has the same sonic technology and vibrates 6000 times per minute.

The deep cleansing that a sonic brush provides helps your cleanser work more efficiently. It also reduces pore size and helps your skin care absorb better, so it’s even more effective.

If you are in the market for a facial cleansing brush, I definitely recommend the MelodySusie Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush! The price is amazing and the results are very close to the more spendy version.  – Lisa
