I have to be honest here, I don't take care of my skin. I'm lazy by nature, and nothing has changed that, until recently. I was shocked to receive the brand new Foreo Luna Mini 2 in my mailbox, and boy oh boy was I excited to try it. Like I said though, I don't take care of my skin, so I didn't have high expectations for this product. I normally will try something skincare related for maybe a week, and then forget about it.
This was different though, the Foreo Luna Mini 2 definitely intrigued me, and I wanted to use it long enough to see what results I could achieve. This was a face cleansing device I was actually interested in purchasing, on those days where I despised my skin as I was breaking out horribly in pimples. I have heard great things about the Clarisonic, but not enough to encourage me to make the purchase.
First off, what is the Foreo Luna Mini 2? Of course being number 2, this is the new and improved version of the Luna Mini. This derives from the original big sister, the Foreo Luna, and they all have one thing in common; to help us all improve our skin-cleansing experience.
So what makes it so amazing compared to the Luna Mini and other competitors?
- 50% Bigger Brush Head enables more efficient cleansing in the same amount of time (compared to the Luna Mini)
- 2X More Powerful Motor for an Enhanced T-Sonic Cleansing System meaning that the Luna Mini 2's 8000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute will help dislodge more impurities from pores.
- 8 Adjustable Pulsation Intensities to meed your needs depending on your preference - slow down for a gentle cleanse, speed up for a powerful deep clean
- It's 100% waterproof and 1 full charge will allow you to be able to use it for 5 months (if you use it twice a day)
- Travel Friendly - it's cute and it's easy to take along with you.
I love that the Luna Mini 2 has a silicone body, meaning that it is less likely to have bacteria build-up. This device is 35x more hygienic than nylon-bristled brushes, which also have to be replaced every few months. With the Luna Mini 2, the one device you have is all you need. No worrying about getting replacement heads!
I was pretty surprised at how soft the bristles were on my sensitive skin. The side with the smaller bristles is for general cleansing, and the tip of that section is for precision cleansing.
This back side with the big bristles works great if you want a deep cleanse.
In the box it came with the USB charger and a small, simple instruction manual. Detailed information on how to use the Luna Mini 2 could be found on the Foreo website. The Luna Mini 2 allows you 1 minute to cleanse your face, by dividing your face into 4 sections: Your left cheek, right cheek, nose, and forehead. It gives you 15 seconds on each section and alerts you by pulsing differently than normal, meaning it's time to move on to the next part of your face. Pretty genius I must say.
After using the Foreo Luna Mini 2 for two and a half weeks now, I am impressed. My skin has gotten significantly softer, and my nose is smoother than ever. I've gotten the hang of it, and now I actually look forward to cleansing my face at night.
The small, sleek, portable design allows me to pack it in my make-up bag to bring to my boyfriend's on the weekend, because for some reason, I break out the most when I'm there! Partially because I get lazy and removing my make-up there is never done correctly. With the Luna Mini 2, make-up removal has become quicker and easier. My face has never been cleaner.
I also noticed whenever I did have a pimple that was emerging, after using the Luna Mini 2, the next day, the affected area didn't look as swollen and big as the previous day.
The only thing I need to improve about this experience is what cleanser to use! If you have any recommendations for cleansers please feel free to leave a comment below on what I need to try. Preferably something for very oily, sensitive, sometimes acne prone skin!
