Luna Mini 2 by FOREO Review
Some of the most reviewed face cleansing brushes on the website are those from the FOREO Family. I always see these little cute brushes featured in beauty blogs or websites and the comments are always very positive. So I finally decided to try LUNA mini 2 by myself to see if the hype is just marketing strategy or if the product is really that good.
As most of you know I’ve been living in Doha and Dubai for the last 5 years. Both these cities are very sandy and polluted. I won’t deny the fact that my skin took a lot of time to adjust to this new weather. I had rash on my face, pimples etc.. I still get them once in a while although I follow a good skincare regime and I always clean my face twice a day. But I guess using traditional ways like water + cleanser + hands is not enough.
LUNA mini 2 by FOREO
If you never heard about LUNA mini 2, it’s a cleansing tool with gentle silicone brushes that helps you to rid of all blemish that are not good for the skin (dead skin cells, makeup residue, soil caused by pollution). It’s smaller than your hand, very easy to use or to carry around if you travel. It doesn’t take a lot of room. It works with T-Sonic pulsations that remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil.
It’s USB-rechargeable, waterproof and it comes in different colours.
This is basically the technical profile of LUNA mini 2 (2 because it’s already the second generation). Now let’s move on a personal level and let’s talk about my experience.
My experience with LUNA mini 2
I got LUNA mini 2 almost three weeks ago and since then I’ve been using diligently twice a day. Morning and evening. And I’m seeing the results!
LUNA mini 2 is very easy to use. In the morning, I simply apply a small amount of cleanser all over my face. I wet LUNA mini 2, I switch on and I start cleansing around. First my cheeks, for about 15 seconds each, then the forehead and the chin. Last 15 seconds are for the small areas like around the nose and the lips. All the procedure takes 1 minute, which is the time suggested by FOREO. The cleanser tool stops for a micro second every 15 seconds to tell you to move on to the next area of your face. After 1 minute LUNA mini 2 doesn’t stop working but the base light switches on so you track the time easily.
After all these steps, I rinse my face in warm water and apply my daily skincare regime.
In the evening I follow exactly the same steps, but if I wore makeup during the day, I remove it using cotton pad and oil cleanser as much as possible.
My thoughts about LUNA mini 2 by FOREO
The first thing you feel are definitely the pulsations. It looks like you haven’t simply washed your face but you actually have exercised the skin! After two weeks of LUNA mini 2 my skin looks tightened, energised and with a better appearance.
The second thing that seriously impressed me it’s how gentle LUNA mini 2 is on the skin. When I first used it I thought it couldn’t really work because in my mind a cleanser brush had to be strong on the skin. It took me few sessions to understand that LUNA mini 2 works and it works in the most gentle way, without harassing your skin.
Another thumb up is for the silicone brushes. In general, replace the brush can be expensive and it might cause breakouts. But LUNA mini 2 has brushes in silicone which you don’t need to replace. Keeping them clean requires zero stress. You simply pass them under the water. LUNA mini 2 is waterproof, just be sure that it’s completely dry when you recharge it.
So, to answer the first question “is LUNA mini 2 cleansing brush worth the hype?” the answer is YES!

I've never sed a brush before on my skin! I do have a bit of a crazy regiment, as I use a lot of Korean products, but this sounds intriguing..

I actually haven't heard of the Luna specifically!! My friend has a device for the face kinda similar to this though- and I tried it while visiting her a couple months ago, it was so cool!
DeborahJune 4, 2018
I have the FOREO Luna 2 (not the mini) but I basically have similar thoughts on them. I love mine and the fact that it's silicone so no brush head to replace!
heather noireJune 4, 2018
That looks really interesting to use. I heard of it before, but never really saw to many reviews. Loved your take on it. Especially the colour it looks so pretty :)
LyndiJune 4, 2018
I just got one of these, and I can't wait to try it! The bristles are super soft, so it looks like it will be very gentle on your skin. Thanks for sharing!

honestly, i loooove the concept, but i have the real mini one and it's just kind of annoying xD i wish it had an actual handle instead!
RachelJune 5, 2018
I've been hearing so much about the foreo lately, I really need to give it a try!

I actually got one of these in my FabFitFun box and can't wait to try it out! I have had a few Clarisonic brushes over the years, but changing the heads out is expensive and I find that they break pretty easily. So I'm glad that this one is more affordable, more sanitary, and works great!

This sounds like such a great product- it looks so easy to use!
