For the past year or so I’ve been using the Foreo Luna Mini 2 and for some reason never reviewed it. I recently did an IG poll asking if you guys would want to see a review and most people said yes! Gotta give the people what they want. When it comes to skincare devices, its hard to choose which one, if any, are worth the money and actually effective. Read my thoughts on the Foreo Luna Mini 2 below.
FOREO LUNA MINI 2 DEETS:
The Foreo Luna is a silicone skin cleansing device that delivers ultrasonic pulses to deeply cleanse the skin of impurities and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It comes in a wide array of models suited for various skin concerns and needs. The original Luna series is slightly larger and there is a significant price difference ($229CAD for the Luna 2 vs. $159CAD for the Luna 2 Mini).
The main thing that drew me to buy this was the fact that you never need to deal with bacteria-ridden brush heads. Sorry, but the Clarisonic just kind of grosses me out and seems super wasteful. This product promises to remove 99.5% of dirt and oil from the face, and they claim that 97% of users noticed smoother skin. The models are all made of surgical grade silicone and are completely waterproof. They also only need to be charged once every 6 months (or 450 uses)- which I can attest to. It’s weird, but the battery just lasts and lasts.
So, why the ‘2’? You may be wondering what happened to the Luna 1. It’s still available on Foreo’s website, but the ‘2’ models are the next generation with a larger brush area and a motor 2x more powerful than the initial models. The silicone is also 36% thicker in the newer models, making the device more comfortable to use and less noisy. Both the Luna 2 and Mini 2 deliver 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute for deep cleansing action.
When deciding which one to buy, I spoke with a skincare associate at Sephora and she explained that the two models are basically the same, the Luna 2 is just a larger size and addresses more skin concerns. For example, with the Luna 2 you can choose between ‘normal’, ‘sensitive’ and ‘combination’ skin models, but the Mini 2 is streamlined for normal skin. The Luna 2 also has 12 interchangeable speeds while the Luna Mini 2 has ‘only’ 8. I tend to have dry/normal skin, so the regular brush head on the Luna Mini 2 seemed fine for my needs.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You simply wet your face and apply cleanser, then move the device in circular motions over your face for 1 minute. Wash your face and smooth skin awaits. You can press ‘+/-‘ on the device to up the frequency based on your comfort level.
-Poreless silicone is way more sanitary than brush heads
-Easy to clean
-No brush heads to replace!
-Comes with a 2 year warranty and 10 year quality guarantee
-Leaves my skin baby-soft immediately after cleansing
-Only needs to be charged once every 6 months
-Very comfortable, doesn’t irritate my skin
-The back has a few dirt stains that are difficult to get out
MY OVERALL THOUGHTS:
Overall, I think this is a great daily cleansing device! I tend to prefer using this and acid exfoliants, versus harsh facial scrubs. Every now and then I use my Trophy Skin At Home Microdermasion Device (see review) and also the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator when I want a deep clean.
I’m happy that I bought the Luna Mini 2 vs. the Luna 2, because it’s nice and compact and exactly what I want. I also love how it’s rechargeable, whereas the smaller Luna Play is only charged for about 100 uses and has to be disposed of once it’s done. Kind of a waste of $59 imo. If you’re looking for a good quality cleansing device that will last you a long time and doesn’t require brush heads, look no further!
