Foreo Luna Review!!!

So I'm sure you've heard about the new cleansing device thats causing a storm in the beauty world, the Luna, developed by a swedish brand called Foreo. Immediately I saw this I wanted it, let me start off by saying I don't own/have never used the clarisonic or anything similar, for whatever reason it has never appealled to me. I've been using this for almost 6 weeks now and finally ready to share my thoughts.

So what is this odd looking device and how does it work? I have the full sized Luna, which is a cleansing and anti-ageing device (I'm in my 30's afterall), powered by T-sonic pulsations. The full sized luna comes in 3 different colours depicting the different skin types it caters to, I have the pale blue one for combination skin, and it cost £145. However I used a 35% discount code I found on youtube, valid directly on, but it has now expired (I did post it to my instagram acc - aallexxy). It's recommended you use a non-clay based, silicone free cleanser and no facial scrubs, to a make-up free face, it has 8 speed settings. It doesn't require new brush heads, the silicone material prevents bacterial build up and is gentle but thorough on the skin, and one charge is said to last 450 uses.
Cleansing side

Initially I used my Emma hardie cleansing balm, after using a baby wipe to remove make-up, big mistake. I broke out after a few uses, I put this down to not thoroughly removing my make prior to using the Luna and possibly because I used it in conjunction with a cleansing balm. Now I've been doing this for a while, minus luna, and my skin was in pretty good shape prior to purchasing the luna. Foreo insist it is designed to be used in conjunction with your current skincare, minus ones mentioned above, I asked on instagram. So now I use my emma hardie balm to remove my make-up and then use the L'occitane gel cleanser in conjunction with the luna, much better results and my breakout started clearing up in a matter of days. I then use the anti-ageing side at night, once I've applied my toner, serum, moisturiser etc. I apply the luna to the recommended points prone to wrinkles between the brows, crows feet and laugh lines.

 Anti-ageing side

In the mornings I use the luna in conjunction with the ELF mineral cleanser, love this stuff and so does the luna, which is water-proof so can be used in the shower. I wet the luna and turn it to my desired speed setting, It pulses every 15 seconds to indicate you can move onto a different part of your face, it pulses in 3 quick successions after a minute and will completely switch off after 3 minutes to prevent over use.

 Charger and pouch

So after a rocky start I am actually starting to really enjoy using my Luna, I'm glad I persevered. I feel it actually helped clear up my break out quicker and I feel my under eye area looks more taut, which I didn't expect to see as wrinkles are not a major issue for me, people usually think I'm younger than I am.

Have you tried the Luna, what are your thoughts? Are you excited for the next release from foreo? An electric toothbrush?!
