Hey guys, I’m back today to talk a little bit about what has saved my face. There is no sarcasm there because my skin was going through absolute hell. Let me tell you what exactly happened…
I finally had found a good skincare routine that I was enjoying (nothing drastic, but was maintaining) and wanted to try out a new cleanser for oily skin types. I was recommended a Peter Thomas Roth one that had 3% glycolic acid in it so I thought, why not? I used it three times in one week and noticed my skin feeling very tight and dry. Not only was it getting dryer and dryer by the minute, I was finding it hard to even open my mouth because of how stiff it made my skin. After a week I legit had lizard skin. It was so corse, rough and overly dry that it started to crack and break out. I kept trying different moisturizers/oils/lotions to try and regain its normal oiliness, but nothing was working. After about three weeks of hell it started to ease up but I found that I was getting acne and blackheads around my mouth/chin area which made me very insecure.
After many different recommendations I decided I didn’t want to try out anymore products but realized I needed a deeper cleanse. I wanted to try out the Clarisonic Mia but wasn’t really into having to purchase a new brush head every three months so I was told to try out the Foreo Luna Mini. To be extremely honest I didn’t think twice about the $159.00 price tag and just thought, what do I have to lose? Let’s just say, I could cry with the transformation my skin has made (in the best way possible).
First of all, the colour selection is fantastic, I went with the dark purple colour but they have lots to choose from. You only have to charge it once every 500 uses and only takes an hour to charge. It’s compact, travel friendly and completely waterproof. It has three silicone touch-points for a safe and gentle or deep cleanse. It has anti aging properties, removes dead skin cells, helps the appearance of pores and leaves your skin bright and radiant. Basically what this does is cleanse your face 7x’s more effectively than what your hands can do.
I use the Philosophy Cleaner with it and love the effect. It unclogs my pores, gets the hard to reach areas and leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated and extremely soft. I use it before I go to bed and also when I wake up, and within three days I noticed a difference in my complexion.
How to use:
There are two levels on the luna, a faster vibration for a deeper cleanse and a lower speed for a more gentle cleanse. On both levels there are 15 second intervals so that you don’t over cleanse one area over another. I like to do 15 seconds on my left and right cheek, chin and lip area and forehead and nose. This gives me a total of one minute of cleansing. Sometimes I’ll put it on the lower speed and do 15 seconds under each eye in an upward motion as well.
If I wanted a deeper cleanse I just flip it so that the thicker touch-points can really get all the problem areas.
Overall, this product has seriously changed my life. As dramatic as that is, it’s true. I highly recommend this to anyone who is suffering with blemishes, oiliness, blackheads or any kind of skin issues. Not to mention it comes with a two year warranty so you know you can trust this product and how it’s made.
