When this tiny little contraption arrived on my doorstep I was a little puzzled. Another little delivery from Becky at Imagination PR so I knew it would be something fun and exciting to try but bar knowing that the Foreo Luna Play* was a facial cleansing brush type object I had no idea what to expect. I am a huge sucker for miniatures and travel friendly products and with a little abundance of holidays lined up I was excited to try it out to see if it was travel bag worthy.
I had seen the hype around the Foreo Luna the larger version of this with the same concept, though the batteries on that are rechargeable. I will get to the way this works in a bit though! The bigger version retails at £125 which is considerably more that this £29 option.
The bristles on this are a lot more hygienic (35 times more in fact) than on a traditional nylon bristled brush. I have 2 nylon brushes a Clinique Sonic System (£79) and Magnitone Lucid (£35 travel brush) so I was excited to try something a little different. It dries really fast meaning no bacteria is able to grow as the bristles are not deeply rooted well they are hardly bristles on this but you know what I mean. This product is the size of a cotton pad so its easy to use and travel with as it takes no space at all another huge plus.
While I haven’t tried the full size version I have seen that tis has the same effect even though its a mini, which means its packs a punch for it’s size. I use it as I would a normal sonic brush, I remove my makeup first with micellar water then wet the Foreo under the tap as it is fully waterproof, add a 5p size of foaming cleanser to the bristles – I have been loving this Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash another mini that pairs perfectly and is also a great colour match to the mint Foreo. You then just move in circular motion where it will help unclog pores and rid you of the dead dry skin on the surface. I have seen a huge change especially around my nose where I get a nasty build up in my pores.
For a facial brush this is a lot more affordable than some but back to the rechargeable thing I mentioned. This is the only downfall this product has you get 100 uses from this and then that is it. For me it would last 6-8 months as I only use it 3 times a week but still. If you were to use this daily I would hate to just throw it away and if you were as i say going to use it daily you would be better off getting the full size rechargeable version.
I will defiantly take this on holiday and continue to use 2-3 times a week as it is such a fantastic product lets just hope it keeps its charge while I am across the atlantic! If this Mint colour isn’t for you don;t worry it also comes in Pearl Pink, Fuchsia, Purple, Sunflower Yellow, Aqua Marine and Midnight.
Have you tried any Foreo products? What do you think?
