FOREO LUNA 3 : A Breakthrough in Beauty Tech

FOREO has released their latest cleansing device, the LUNA 3*. Designed to be more than just a cleansing device, it is a 'breakthrough in beauty technology'. Offering a deep yet gentle cleanse, the LUNA 3 provides a variety of firming massage routines to truly tailor your skin care routine.
I have used the original LUNA and some of the LUNA Play's, the mini version of the LUNA and loved them, so I was very intrigued to try this new device out and see how it faired against the original models.

So for those of you who haven't heard of the LUNA 3 and have no idea what it is, let me give you a brief overview. The LUNA 3* is an ultra-soft, hygienic silicone facial cleanser that leaves you with younger looking skin in a flash. It is controlled completely through the FOREO app via bluetooth, simply press button to turn on LUNA 3 and connect your device and away you go. With 16 customisable intensities and a number of different firming massages to target different facial zones, the LUNA 3 offers a cleanse like no other. It unclogs pores, gently removing dirt, oil and impurities, and with no need to replace brush heads, this device truly stands the test of time.



There have been some changes since the LUNA 2. LUNA 3’s brush head is not only 30% larger than LUNA 2 but its silicone touchpoints are 30% longer and 25% softer. This greater reach and extra softness means you’ll get a deeper, gentler clean. You now get 650 uses on a single charge.

There are three different LUNA 3's available, all currently exclusively available at Mecca - a gorgeous blue for combination skin, a lovely pastel purple for sensitive skin, and my favourite pastel pink for normal skin.




I was very excited to try the LUNA 3 and all it's features, and it's safe to say I have been very impressed. As a cleansing device I love how easily it cleanses my skin and how soft and refreshed my skin feels afterwards. I have tried a few different cleansers with the device, but I do find that it works best with a gentle foaming cleanser, which is shocking seeing as I generally hate foaming cleansers. Gel, balms and oils don't seem to spread across the skin as easily as the device vibrates, and balms don't melt as well. They also don't leave your skin feeling as clean.

Over the course of using it (which has been for just over a month) I have found that my skin has been clearing up as well. I have had this happen in the past when I was using cleansing devices for a consistent amount of time. The LUNA 3 just helps to make sure that any dirt, grime, make up and unneeded bacteria sitting in the surface of your skin is removed and your skincare products are able to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Now let's talk massaging device. One of the new features of the LUNA 3 is the in app Massage Treatments. There are four treatments:

Eyes on the Prize: A two-minutes massage that uses high and low intensity pulsations to firm the eye area.

Nothing but Neck: Tightens and firms your neck and décolleté with a two-minutes massage.

Contour Crazy: Four-minutes massage contours and sculpts your cheek- and jawbones.

Magic Mouth: Tighten your jawline while reducing frown lines with this two-minutes massage.

To complete any of the treatments, you simply connect your LUNA 3 to the app, turn it on and select which treatment you want to do. Then just follow the instructions. I have found that it works best applying either an oil or light serum to your skin first, mostly because it helps to device to move more comfortably over the skin, but also because it helps to penetrate the serum into your skin.



Truth be told, I don't have many noticeable signs of ageing, so I can't say I have noticed a huge change in my skin, but it does leave my skin looking slightly firmer, and helps my skincare to soak into the skin deeply. If nothing else, it is a beautiful and relaxing step to add into your routine.

I have been absolutely loving my FOREO LUNA 3. It is just a great little all rounder device that makes cleansing easier. They have really stepped it up this time around. Now, is it an essential to your skincare routine? No, and if you don't have a spare $300, it is not a necessity. If you do, and you want to help enhance your skincare routine, it's great! But by no means am I encouraging you to drop cash that you don't have available. It is a luxury tool and designed in that way.



Have you tried the LUNA 3 yet? I would love to hear your thoughts! Let me know in the comments below.
