Specialising in beauty and wellbeing solutions, Foreo strives to brighten your life and strengthen your self-confidence with their pioneering skin cleansing creations, the LUNA™. Founded in 2013, Foreo has made their presence known all over the world and are changing the way people look at cleansing their skin. Gone are the days when a flannel was sufficient enough to wipe away the build up on your skin from your day. Foreo offers a complete tailor-made skincare experience, no matter what skin type you have. Intrigued? We've found out everything you need to know about the skin cleansing gadget and whether it's worth adding just one more product to your skin care routine. (Spoiler alert: it is!).
First things first, what is the Luna and why was it created?
Here at Foreo, creative destruction is at the heart of what we do, and this is reflected in our unique product designs. Bringing together world-class experts with product designers and engineers, we challenge and question how we can change existing standards in the pursuit of making people’s lives better. The LUNA™ was created out of the need to disrupt the facial cleansing market and address some flaws, including the abrasive and unhygienic nylon bristles found on traditional cleansing brushes and to create a more ergonomic design and hassle-free beauty routine while delivering visible results.
The LUNA™ is a silicone facial cleansing device that channels 8000 T-Sonic pulsations a minute to deeply yet gently cleanse the skin, removing 99.5% of dirt, oil and make-up residue. It helps to clear away dead skin cells, refine the appearance of pores and increase the absorption and efficacy of your skincare products. The Anti-Ageing Mode on the LUNA™ 2 also increases circulation and helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines.
What benefits does it have against other cleansing methods, i.e. not with a gadget?
There’s only so much our hands can do; the LUNA™ devices use T-Sonic (transdermal) pulsations to deliver the deepest cleanse possible while staying gentle on your skin. This helps to unclog pores, improve skin texture and increase the absorption of your skincare products without being too abrasive.
Naturisimo stocks the Luna 2 and Luna mini 2, what are the main differences, aside from the size?
With four specific brush types and 12 customisable intensities, the LUNA™ 2 is completely tailored to match specific skincare needs. Lower-frequency pulsations on the Anti-Ageing Mode also help to massage in your skincare products and increase circulation to boost radiance and firm fine lines. The LUNA™ mini two has been designed just for cleansing and has eight adjustable intensities. Suitable for all skin types, thinner touch-points on the front cleanse normal and sensitive areas and broader touch-points on the back address oilier areas.
How hygienic is the product to use over and over again? Do the brushes need special treatment?
The hypoallergenic, body-safe and non-porous silicone is easy to clean and prevents bacteria build-up, leaving it 35X more hygienic than a nylon-bristled brush, so you never need to replace the brush heads! After cleansing, run your fingers over the silicone bristles under running water and leave to air-dry.
The Luna 2 comes in 4 types for different skin types – how do these work differently from each other?
The LUNA™ 2 comes in four different models each with varying touch-points – sensitive, normal, combination and oily so that you can choose the device tailored to your skin’s needs. The LUNA 2 for Sensitive Skin device (lavender) has thin, soft touch-points which are designed to minimise abrasion for even the most sensitive skin. The Luna 2 for Normal Skin (pink) brush surface features small touch-points for gentle cleansing for areas such as the cheeks with some broader touch-points grouped at the top of the device for precision cleansing. The Luna 2 for Combination Skin(blue) has three different length touch-points for an even deeper cleanse whereas the full silicone touch-points on the Luna 2 for Oily Skin device (teal) channel T-Sonic™ pulsations more deeply to refresh very oily skin.
How do you choose which may be best for your skin?
The majority of skin types would suit the LUNA™ 2 for normal skin, however, if you have dry or sensitive skin then we would recommend the sensitive device. If you are prone to combination skin more on the oily side, the combination model may suit you better. For very oily skin or men’s skin, the LUNA™ 2 for oily skin is your most suitable option.
How is the Luna Mini 2 adapted to suit all skin types?
The LUNA™ mini 2’s 3-zone brush is the perfect match for every type of skin; thinner touch-points gently cleanse sensitive and healthy skin such as the cheeks, thicker touch-points at the top for precision cleansing on areas such as the nose and chin, and broader touch-points on the reverse side address oilier skin.

What are the long-term benefits of the Luna?
You’ll start to notice clearer, smoother and more radiant skin in as little as three days. Over a longer period, the LUNA™ will refine skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and give you a brighter complexion. Since your products can absorb better and work more efficiently, you’ll notice a difference in how quickly you see results from your skincare.
What other features make it a must-have item?
Both the LUNA™ 2 and LUNA™ mini 2 are lightweight, easy to carry and have lockable controls, so they are ultra travel-friendly. The LUNA™ 2 lasts up to 450 uses per charge whereas the LUNA™ mini two up to 300 uses, so you never have to compromise on your skincare routine.
