What the brand says: Treat your skin to the ultimate deep cleansing experience with the Foreo Luna Mini. Using T-Sonic™ technology which provides thorough yet gentle cleaning by channelling transdermal sonic pulsations across the skin’s surface, the device will give your skin a smoother and more refined appearance in just three days. The LUNA™ mini is an innovative facial-cleansing device that directs T-Sonic™ pulsations through an ultra-hygienic silicone brush. Compact and travel-friendly, it requires no replacement brushes and transforms the skin by removing breakout-causing impurities, leaving behind a healthier-looking, radiant complexion- as well as the confidence that comes with having clear and clean skin. Hypoallergenic. Free from phthalates and BPA.
The Foreo Luna Mini in turquoise comes in a plastic case which can be used to store the device. You are also provided with a USB charger and an authenticity card with 2 years warranty.
The device has a silicon coating with silicon bristles on both the sides. The front side has tiny and soft bristles for gentle cleansing while the front top and back has thick and bigger sized bristles for deep cleansing. There is a press button in the front which is for switching on and off the device and also to adjust the 2-speed settings. The entire device is waterproof and you need to keep it out in a clean dry place until it completely dries before tossing it in the plastic case. The Device once charged can be used for 5 months.
How to use and after-effects:
The Foreo Luna Mini in turquoise is made for combination and breakout-prone skin. I use it every morning with a creamy face wash (Since it works better with a cream face wash) and before bedtime only if I have used any makeup during the day and when need deep cleansing. I use the gentle cleansing side usually but use the deep cleansing part when I want to thoroughly remove any makeup residue and clean my pores.
How to use: First, wet your face and apply a foam or cream cleanser (cream cleansers work better). Next, press the middle to turn on the device; when you do this, it starts vibrating vigorously and you may press it one more time to reduce the vibration speed. You massage it in circular motions on the cleansing side- on the cheeks, forehead, cheek bones along with nose and upper lips and lower chin. After each 15-second interval the LUNA pulsations will pause momentarily, indicating it is time to move to a different area of the face. After 1 minute, the pulsations will pause 3 times to prevent overuse. You hit the middle button, to pause it, then restart it to use the deep cleansing mode. If you continue using, it will cause no pulsations so you have to make sure you don’t overuse it. Or you can also just use the deep cleansing mode if you want but I feel using the gentle side first and then the deep cleansing side cleanses your pores thoroughly.
After-effects: I have combination skin and I do get breakouts. I feel this device does a great work of cleansing your face and removing all the breakouts-causing impurities. I had some very bad breakouts before I started using this and I can see that the frequency of breakouts has reduced (not stopped) which is a great thing. They dry and flake off within 2-3 days. Skin feels thoroughly cleansed and soft after use and night cream or moisturizer gets absorbed within no time. I do feel the texture of my skin has improved a bit, but the difference is not much. I have used this device for approx. 2 weeks and I already can see good results, I surely can expect even better results with the course of time.
