Delighted to be reviewing the Foreo Luna mini 2 today on the blog. If you’ve been a reader for a long time, you may recall I actually reviewed the full size Foreo Luna quite some time ago. I loved it and actually still use it, although I’ve lapsed slightly and tend not to use it every day. No reason for that, just that I’m terribly slack.
So since the Foreo Luna was launched in the UK the range has expanded (hello toothbrush!!) but today we’re looking at, as I say, the Foreo Luna mini 2.
The Mini 2 is a hand held device for facial cleansing. It’s made from silicone which cleanses gently, but thoroughly, while being really hygienic as you can clean the device easily.
As well as the Mini, you also get a USB charger and a little instruction booklet. Otherwise that’s it, but what more could you want?!
The mini has eight intensities so you can find the perfect setting for you while the “bristles” are optimised for all skin types. Once you set your intensity, the Luna mini remembers that, so it’ll be still set to the same next time you turn it on.
To use it, dampen your face, apply your cleanser, then turn on your mini and apply all over your face for a minute. As you move around your face the light will flash telling you to move onto the next area of your face, it really couldn’t be simpler. I’d like to go on a rant about this is superior to famous “brush” cleaning systems but I’ll exercise some decorum and just say, it is. Not only is the device more hygienic, but it’s gentler while cleansing extremely thoroughly, you’ll never need to buy a replacement brush and they are incredibly energy efficient (300 uses approximately per charge!).
In terms of difference between this and the full size Luna, the mini doesn’t have the anti ageing side and the bristles differ in layout slight, it is smaller of course (but for my small hands thats a good thing). The full sized Luna comes in various models for different skin types, while the Mini just has one standard model, which is suitable for all.
The Mini bristles have several zones, the general cleansing area at the front, with a precision cleansing zone on the tip for getting around the nose and smaller areas, the bristles on the rear of the device are for deep cleansing, so if oily or spotty areas, use the rear of the device on those.
I think I’ve run through everything you need to know, but the long and the short of it is that I think the Foreo sonic cleansers are the best you can buy, I can’t say a bad thing about them, genuinely. You can use your usual cleansers (I’m currently loving Mac Lightful Cleanser and it works with this beautifully), and what’s more because it’s so hygienic, your whole family can use the same one…not that there’s any chance I’m sharing mine with anyone!
At £99 it is definitely an investment, but they last for years and as I say, you won’t need to purchase replacement parts.
You can purchase on the Foreo Site, as well as find more information.
