Win It! FOREO LUNA Facial Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device

Press Sample

Recently the innovative Swedish company, FOREO, asked me to test drive their new skin cleansing device, the LUNA™. It is just now making it’s debut here in the U.S. and  promises to be the new alternative to the Clarisonic.

Not just another facial cleansing device, FOREO’s LUNA™ cleanses and fights the signs of aging! LUNA’s™ secret is the T-Sonic™ pulsations that are channeled across the skin’s surface without using a brush! Instead, the unique surface has soft, round silicone “bumps.”  I’ve found that I much prefer these soft, gentle silicone bristles to a brush. I can only use my Clarisonic once a day even with the sensitive skin brush–twice a day and my skin gets too sensitive.  I can use the LUNA twice a day and get a deep cleanse without the irritation of a brush! The other plus to no brush, is NO bacteria and no replacing brush heads, thereby saving you money!

For cleansing mode, simply put your preferred cleanser on your face, touch the plus sign on the LUNA™ and move around your face. I like to move in circles starting at the forehead and working my way down but there is no right or wrong way. The LUNA™  vibrates rather that rotates which allows for a gentle but deep cleanse. I much prefer this for my thinning, aging skin. Press the plus sign again if you desire a stronger vibration. I also like the egg-like shape, it gets around my nose and chin better than a brush and is easier to maneuver. I will admit devices with brushes probably work better at exfoliation, but I have used my LUNA™ with a scrub for that.

But wait there’s more! The LUNA™ does double duty, making to a must-have for over 40 women! Turn over and you will notice a few raised lines on the back–those are to apply anti-aging treatments. Just as you do for cleansing, apply your serum and let the vibrations help anti-aging serums absorb into the skin faster. Press the center button for the lower frequency anti-aging mode and press to your face for 12 seconds in each of 5 different pressure points: between the eyes, temples and nasolabial folds. This light massage is suppose to relax those tension points to help prevent lines and wrinkles. I love the way this feels–the vibrations seem to go deep and it  feels very relaxing–like a little stress break. I’m going to do this every night before I crawl into bed!

From FOREO:

The LUNA™’s Anti-Aging Mode channels pulsations through a curved surface of concentric ridges to relax the face’s muscle-tension points, smoothing the skin and helping to prevent dynamic wrinkles and expression lines. The low-frequency pulsations provide a focused boost to blood micro-circulation in wrinkle-prone areas, nourishing with oxygen and nutrients, increasing cell renewal and supporting the production of collagen and elastin to restore the skin’s firmness and elasticity. Using the LUNA™’s Anti Aging Mode both morning and night promises to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking smoother and enviably youthful.

Whether the anti-aging mode will lessen my crow’s feet or nasolabial folds remains to be seen, but there is some science to transdermal devices so I am hopeful. Even so, I really, really love the way it feels on my skin, the relaxation it provides and how it makes my skin glow.

The FOREO LUNA™ is available in three versions: blue for combination skin, white for ultra-sensitive skin and pink for sensitive/normal skin. It is 100% waterproof and fully rechargeable. I charged mine for an hour before use and the company says it will hold a charge for 450 uses!

Bottom Line:  In a very short time I have come to love the gentle cleanse and massage I get from the LUNA. The egg shape fits in my hand well and gets into nooks and crannies. I much, much prefer the silicone nubs versus a brush for my thinning, aging skin.  The fact that the LUNA functions for cleansing as well as as anti-aging makes it ideal for the over 40 woman and a good buy too!  My Clarisonic is on it’s last legs (I’ve had it since 2007)  and now that I’ve found LUNA,  I don’t think I’ll replace it.

  1. I’ve been using the Clarisonic for years, but I have super sensitive skin and even their most delicate head irritates me if I use it too often. I’ve also had concerns about how sanitary those brushes are, despite cleaning them often.

    I’m very intrigued by the Luna; it seems like a wonderful alternative and I will definitely be trying to get my eager hands on one!

    • Me too Robin, I can only use the sensitive brush on the Clarisonic once a day, but the Luna I can use twice a day with no irritation!

  2. Peggy Bayer says

    I have a clarisonic but this one sound gentler with my skin getting older and thinner this sounds like it might suit me better. I’d LOVE to try it!
    Peg~

  3. I have never used any cleansing brush would definitely love to give the Luna a try.

  4. I use my Clarisonic Mia 2, but would use Luna since it seems to be easier to use and has more benefits for my aging skin.

  5. melody brown says

    This would be cool to try. Thanks for the chance.

  6. Heather USA (Rafflecopter: Rosie Areola) says

    I don’t use a cleansing brush, most of them look too scary and harsh – I like that these look more….useable? I’ve heard fantastic reviews also.

  7. Tamara B. says

    I haven’t ever use a cleansing brush and would love to try one

  8. Susan Christy says

    Never tried but would love to – my skin isn’t looking that great these days.

  9. would love to try – disappointed by Clarisonic Mia

  10. Carol Buchman says

    I do use a Clarisonic Mia but I’d really love to try this! I LOVE the idea of a product that cleanses AND fights the signs of aging! If the LUNA can help me fight the signs of aging & can relax my face’s muscle-tension points, it would be a dream device!! Thanks for the chance! 🙂

  11. This looks like an amazing skin care device. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

  12. Mamavalveeta03 says

    Is it just me, or does this look more like a “Personal Pleasure Device”??? Do you get the “Big O” every time you wash your face? Interesting…

  13. carol scheive says

    I do not currently use a cleansing brush. The LUNA sounds amazing especially the Anti Aging Mode. I would LOVE to try it

  14. Laura Johnson says

    I don’t use a device…just a washcloth, but I would be interested in giving this a try!!

  15. I was sent one of these a few weeks ago but I have yet to use it – better sort that out.

    I bought a Clarisonic a few years ago and I only used it about 5 times because I really couldn’t get the hang of it.

    Thanks for the great review!

  16. I use a Clarisonic Mia, but would love to try this device. It would be gentler on my face.

  17. Jennifer Pellicone says

    I have a neurtosonic that is slowly no longer holding a charge. I did like it, although it occassionally felt scratchy, but the Luna looks like it would be more gently on my skin and feel wonderful.

  18. ellen willett says

    no this looks better

  19. What a pity I can’t enter to win the Luna (due to being in Australia!) as this sounds absolutely brilliant! I have a Clarisonic and have just started trialling the Olay cleansing system (as it has only just come to Australia). I wonder how long it will be before it lands here? Good luck to everyone who enters – I am really envious xx

  20. It’s ironic that I don’t currently use a facial device such as this Luna, because I do routinely dry brush my body almost every day. It makes sense to start taking care of my (aging!) face. I would be thrilled to win my very own Luna.

  21. ruby reis says

    I have not used a cleansing brush but Yes I would try it.

  22. Sandy Cain says

    I SHOULD be using a cleansing brush -but I’m not. *ashamed* Fir sure I’d try the LUNA, seems like a step above the usual stuff you see around. Pick me, pick me!

  23. I love these beauty gadgets! I’ve never seen this one before! It looks very different than any other.

  24. I would love to try one of these! I’ve never used a brush and I love the anti-aging aspect of this one!!

  25. Let start by saying that I enjoy your blog very much and am thrilled that you are offering the Foreo Luna anti aging device as a giveaway. I have been interested in this device. I am one of several people that do not have or want a Twitter account and as a result I cannot fully enter your giveaway. I am asking nicely that you consider not tying full entry to giveaways by using Twitter as a mandatory entry. Thank you and I will continue to enjoy your blog.

  26. Mackenzie says

    I would definitely try the LUNA. I’ve never used a brush because it seems like they would be too rough on my skin.

  27. Dana Rodriguez says

    I would love to try this!I am not happy with my skin and am doing my best to slow sown the aging~nice giveaway!

  28. I’m a brush virgin. It’s just my hands and my Shu oil. Might be time to add a gadget to the mix

    Thanks for the opportunity to win one!!

  32. Vicki Neulinger says

    I do not use a cleansing brush out of fear that it will spread acne p bacteria. I would love love to try the Luna. I perform ultrasonic facials at my job and this sounds very similar.

  33. hanh nguyen says

    I have use the Clarisonic one and it does the job, but the brushes are expensive to replace. I would love to try the Luna!! Thank You!

  34. Pamela Murphy says

    I would definitely use this everyday! Approaching 60, I need all the help I can get!

  35. teresa koedyker says

    Yes I would use this everyday.

  36. I have never used a cleaning system before because the excess charges always scared me. I know that it is not so with the Foreo Luna! I want to have radiant skin! I want to look young (longer)!

  37. Michelle C. says

    I’ve wanted to try this ever since it came out! It is easy to use, portable, and very hygienic. There’s no need to clean brush heads like the Clarisonic (which I use daily), and there’s an added value of not having to buy a new one every few months. I’m sold and would be thrilled to win one of these!

  38. I have only tried The wave by Neutrogena, but this sounds as if it would be much better! I use my Wave daily, but really haven’t seen much in the way of results from it.

  39. diane redcay says

    I would really love to try this but right now no I dont use a cleaning brush just a baby wash cloth

  40. I don’t use a cleansing brush, but I’d love to try the Luna.

  41. I do use a cleansing brush, I would love to try the luna. I am not getting any younger and really need to combat signs of aging

  42. I’ve Always wanted to try something that cleanses my face and also provides anti-aging properties at the same time without being too harsh on the face.

  43. I’ve Been using a Clarisonic for about 4 months and I believe that it’s been too abrasive on me so I would like to try something that will clean deep, but be more gentle at the same time.

  44. I have Clarisonic and I must say I don’t use it often. I would use this device more often.

  45. Rachel Beltz says

    I don’t currently use a cleansing brush, but I would love to try the LUNA! I really hope this could combat my acne, and just overall help my complexion!

  46. Dineo Maboe says

    Hi there! I live in South Africa and have been doing research on a facial brush that I can order from that side. It was by luck that I saw someone do a review on this comparing it to the Clarisonic. Thank goodness for that! At least now I have more economical options. Whoop whoop to that!

  47. I’m currently using the Clarisonic, but would love to try this!

  48. Kristina Vieweg says

    Yes I have the clarisonic Mia, but the brush heads are expensive to replace, and it seemed to make me break out more even though I cleaned it after almost every use…plus the battery runs out quickly!

  49. I have a manual cleansing brush from the Body Shop, but it feels to abrasive. Needless to say, I don’t use it.

  50. anissa (an) gooch says

    Yes, I would love to try this!

  51. Joanna Dawn Smith says

    What a great review! You have me so excited about this very unique device. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the different products I can use to try and prevent the signs of aging and prevent more wrinkles from creeping up and this products sounds like one I would truly love to incorporate into my skin care routine. Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

  52. Joanna Dawn Smith says

    Ooops, I was so excited about the products I forgot to say I have not used a cleaning / cleanser brush of any kind on my skin.

  53. I’m not own any cleaning system. I’m not sure which brand and which cleansing device to get. Lately, my skin is getting bad…pimples on my chin and cheeks, and a lot of blackheads on my nose. I would love to try Foreo Luna everyday. =} Thank you for giveaways and I hope I could win and get a chance to try it out.

  54. I have never used a cleaning brush and I am over 40 so I better get moving on trying something good like this! I have yet to get the Clarisonic or any other device like the Luna but I would love to try it!! I entered 🙂

  55. I’d love to give this a try! I’ve had to give up my Clarisonic the past 6 mos just because even the sensitive brush was too much!
