When I first heard about the Swedish skincare brand Foreo I made a little bit of research and I found so many amazing reviews about their new cleansing device called Luna Mini. Although I already own the Clarisonic Mia I wasn’t really in need of a new skincare device but I was lucky enough to get a discount from feelunique.com and I finally took the chance and purchased this little wonder worker! The Luna Mini is a fancy skincare devise, it’s compact and so easy to use! It basically works by deeply cleaning your pores of impurities to reduce the cause of blemishes while dirt and oil are easily driven away. It’s hygienic, non absorbent and also 100% waterproof, which makes it very easy to use under the shower or in the bath. Also, the battery life is phenomenal, you simply charge it for less than an hour via USB and it lasts for more than 300 uses! I use my Luna Mini for one minute every morning and evening, I just put my favourite cleanser on, which is currently the Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Gel, I then switch the device on and gently rub it all over my face.
I have combination/oily skin and my biggest issues are my oily T-zone and blackheads. After using the Luna Mini for the very first time my skin felt so much smoother and cleaner, I was overwhelmingly impressed by the results. Now that I’m using this little beauty for a few weeks my skin is so much brighter and old acne scars and dark spots are almost completely gone! My pores are getting smaller and I hardly get any blackheads anymore. The Luna Mini even got rid of those annoying blackheads on my nose. My skin has always bothered me a lot and I’m so happy I finally found a great skincare device that works perfectly alongside my favourite cleanser.
Clarisonic vs. Foreo
Since I own the Clarisonic Mia too, I thought I’d do a little comparison between those two skincare devices. You may already know which one’s my personal favourite from the review I just wrote but I’m sure some of you would be interested to see a comparison between the two devices, so I’m happy to share my thoughts with you.
