Welcome back Glam Girls! Today I will talk about one of my FAVORITE skincare devices and cleansers. I’ve tried many skincare devices – the spin brushes, clarisonic, the olay brush, etc. There is one device called the FOREO Luna Mini which I absolutely love to use to cleanse my skin. I want to share with you my thoughts regarding this device since it has been part of my skincare routine for over a year now.
My then boyfriend, now fiancé knows how obsessed I am with skincare products and makeup. Over a year ago, he got me the FOREO Luna Mini as an early birthday gift, because of course, I really wanted to get my hands on it! Now, a year later I am here to share with you my thoughts on this beauty beast.
The FOREO is made of nonporous silicone which dries quickly and does not allow bacteria to build up and grow. The silicone beads make it glide across your skin, and not pull or irritate your skin – perfect for sensitive skin! The best part about it is that it is waterproof and safe to use in the shower! Another great benefit of the Luna Mini is that it has 2 speeds that you can alternate between and each cycle is a total of 1 minute! You start off on your forehead and move to your cheek, middle of your face, and other cheek. The device will pause for a quick second to alert you it is time to cleanse the other area of your face, until the full cycle of 1 minute is complete. Another great part about this skincare diva is that it holds it charge for a long time, and comes with a USB wall charger – so no batteries needed! (I’ve had mine for over a year and have only had to charge it once recently). I can definitely say it’s one of the best investments you can make for your skin!
I like to use my Luna Mini in the shower with Body Shop’s Camomile Silky Cleanser. This cleanser is an oil based cleanser and really gives your skin that extra umph it needs in the morning. Many misconceptions of using oil based products is that it causes you to become more oily. Let me clarify this for you all. I have oily/combination skin depending on the time of year, however, when I use oil based cleansers or facial oils, my oil production lessens. This is because the oil targets the spots on your face which need the extra moisture and clean out the excess oil that you do not need – it basically redistributes moisture on your face. So, don’t be afraid, and give the oil based cleansers a try!
Quick Tip: Maybe ask for a sample for any oil based product you want to try to see whether you would want to purchase it for yourself, before you invest in one. The Body Shop gives samples of all their skincare products, which is amazing!
Although your hands and fingers can clean your face well, using a device like the FOREO just ensures that you are cleansing out that extra dirt and grime on your face. Especially after a day of wearing makeup, you want to make sure you are taking care of your skin correctly. I’ve used the FOREO for a while, but after using it religiously for a month I noticed the difference. So girls, add this skincare diva to your list, like I did last year! You won’t regret it!
