A Skin Care Fanatic’s View on FOREO LUNA

by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan


But all opinions are my own. See DISCLAIMER for more.

Gone are the days when we only relied on our fingers to clean the face. As more people are inclining towards makeup and beauty, the more people are becoming cautious about facial cleansing process. Usage of facial cleansing devices has become a staple nowadays as we are more concerned about scrubbing, exfoliating and taking off the makeup or residual dirt completely.

It is a difficult choice to pick a device for your skin only relying on product description and online reviews. Everyone’s skin is different and you can’t tell for sure if the device you are investing in, will be worth your money.

But I still wanted to “up” my skin-care game and bought a popular facial cleansing device. You have to change the brush head every 3-6 months for effectiveness and hygiene properties.

It didn’t bother me at first, because I thought it would be a good investment for skin. As the months progressed I became doubtful of my choice, specially the first initial months after you start using a facial brush, your skin will breakout like there’s no tomorrow! It takes time and patience to get used to it.

I thought regretfully, “May be I should have gone for Foreo Luna!”

To quote the Foreo website;

Luna is “An innovative skincare device that delivers deep-cleansing via T-Sonic™ technology and anti-aging through lower-frequency pulsations. Available in 3 models tailored to cater to specific skin types.”

There are 3 types of this device:

Pink: sensitive/normal skin

Blue: Combination skin

White: Ultra sensitive skin

As my skin tends to be sensitive/normal I chose the pink one.

  • After each stage of these routines, you will feel the T-Sonic™ pulsations momentarily pause and see the indicator light flash, prompting you to move on to the next area of your face.
  • To prevent overuse, the LUNA automatically switches itself off if left for 3 minutes in Cleansing Mode.
  • The LUNA™’s LED will flash repeatedly to indicate the battery is charging. When it is fully charged (after approximately 1 hour), the LED will emit a steady glow.
  • When the battery is running low, the LED on your LUNA™ will emit a blinking white light.
  • It may be locked when first unboxed. You can unlock it by holding down the + and – buttons together. The light will flash to indicate that your device is unlocked. If you wish to lock your device for travel convenience, you can follow the same procedure.



If you are wearing makeup, first take it off with your makeup remover. Then you can apply your regular facial cleanser. After that you can use your FOREO LUNA to cleanse each areas of your face.

At the end of 1 minute cleansing routine you can use the anti-aging surface onto the wrinkle-prone areas of your face for 12 seconds each.

  • It’s waterproof.

  • You don’t have to change the brush head, ever.
  • The brush part is incredibly soft to the skin. Actually it feels very soothing and softer than any other brush heads I have ever used. (e.g. Clarisonic Cashmere)
  • You can change the intensity of the pulsations. You can adjust it with the -/+ signs.
  • The anti-aging surface gives a mini massage and feels relaxing on skin.
  • The charge of this device stays on for a l-o-n-g time.
  • It’s great for travel; the high retention of charge enables you to travel even without the charger.
  • The device has 2 years limited warranty and 10 years quality warranty.


  • Pricey, it retails for $199.
  • If you are used to the abrasive cleansing process of other cleansing brushes, you will feel kinda “odd” using this device.
  • You can’t use any clay-based, silicone-based, grainy cleansers, exfoliators, or scrubs along with LUNA.


Splurging on other facial cleansing devices, which are widely available around market, may be okay or good; but FOREO is better. I give it two thumbs up!

FOREO ISSA Toothbrush: Review, Comparison & Thoughts August 9, 2015 - 6:55 pm

[…] I reviewed another innovative product from their line: Foreo Luna and I was impressed. You can see the review […]

Lovely packaging, and just from looking at it I think it would feel great. Wonderful review!

Wasifa Ahmad Hasan June 30, 2015 - 12:25 pm

Thank you Susan!

Yona Williams June 29, 2015 - 11:43 pm

I think I saw something like this being used on a TV show, and wondered how it worked on the skin. I have to agree…$199 is pretty steep.

Wasifa Ahmad Hasan June 30, 2015 - 12:25 pm

Yes I agree.. The things we do for good skin!

tara pittman June 29, 2015 - 4:38 pm

This sounds like a nice spa tool. The price of it is too pricye for me though

Wasifa Ahmad Hasan June 29, 2015 - 8:42 pm

Hey Tara! Yes you have named it correctly! But seeing its benefits and effectiveness I would say it’s a pretty good investment.

Marcie W. June 29, 2015 - 12:36 pm

I could not survive without my sonic cleansing brush. I am pretty low maintenance and it is one of about three beauty items I use every single day. I love the compact size of this particular device.

Wasifa Ahmad Hasan June 29, 2015 - 12:40 pm

I agree Marcie… this one is great for travel.

Sandra June 28, 2015 - 1:41 am

Technology never ceases to amaze me,,looks promising tho

Wasifa Ahmad Hasan June 28, 2015 - 9:22 pm

I agree with you Sandra…. 🙂
