Foreo Luna Facial Cleansing Device Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Today I have a new facial cleaning device on the blog, the Foreo Luna. What is the Foreo Luna? It is a silicone facial brush for combination skin that channels both T-sonic pulsations for deep and gentle cleansing, and lower-frequency pulsations to reduce the signs of aging.

There are a few different types of Foreo Luna, the blue one I have is for combination skin, there is a white one for ultra sensitive skin, a pink one for normal to sensitive skin, and a black one for men.

Box Contents

The Foreo Luna device comes with the device itself, a charger and a carrying bag to keep it all together.  Looks wise, it’s a little odd compared to what I’m use to, but it’s a cute, compact facial cleansing device.

Size with nails

It’s a little on the wide side, but it does fit in my palm fairly easily and the size is small enough to make traveling with it easier than my True Glow by Conair Sonic Skincare Solution.

Side size

Now there are pros and cons to the Foreo Luna.

The Pros

 One of the main pros I found was that it was easy to clean and doesn’t require you to purchase brush heads after certain periods of time.  That means that once you’ve purchased the Foreo Luna, you no longer need to sink money into it.

The silicone bristles will not contaminate your skin because bacteria won´t grow in it since it dries completely.

The charge on it also lasts a long time.  I’ve used this daily for 2 weeks now and it’s still on the first charge cycle, so that’s amazing for traveling.  I would still bring the charger because I’m like that, but if I forget it, I wouldn’t panic.

If you do have sensitive skin, the silicone bristles are easier on the skin and don’t seem to irritate as much as a traditional brush head would on a Clarisonic or the Conair device.

The Cons

I do find the device a little uncomfortable to hold.  While it’s slim, it’s wide.  I have almost lost my grip on it a couple times, usually I recover the fumble, but I have dropped it twice.  On the bright side, it seems to hold up like a champ and hasn’t broken yet.

While it is gentler on the skin, I don’t feel like my skin got a squeaky clean feel.  I seemed to get more blackheads using it, which leads me to believe it isn’t really “getting in there” for the deeper cleaning I need.

I had trouble getting into some areas of my face, like the crevice between my nose and cheek. There wasn’t a good enough edge to accomplish this, and I get a lot of dry skin and gunk in that area.



While I liked this handy little device, for me the cons outweighed the pros – so I won’t be switching to it permanently.  It’s nice for travel, but that’s about it for me.  I will continue to use my True Glow by Conair Sonic Skincare Solution instead.

Is this a must have skincare device? Not for me.  I have heard some rave reviews about it, but it really just isn’t for me.

Price: $199.00

I can see how this wouldn’t quite cut it for people with oily or combination skin, but it works wonders on my sensitive/dry skin!

Lisa Heath July 3, 2015 - 4:18 pm

That’s probably very true! I just need a deeper clean than what this was able to give me!

Hmmm, it doesn’t sound like it was 100% for you. I am curious about the Foreo, especially the sensitive skin version, because sometimes the brushes are a little too much for my skin

Sadly it wasn’t. I was hoping it would be, but it just didn’t do what I expected it to

I’m using my LUNA a lot, right now. I think that I’ll end up alternating with my Soniclear. I like both for different reasons. My LUNA is my new and shiny, tho. ;)

I love your honest review. My concern is also the width of the Foreo. I haven’t yet used it. It is currently charging, but once I do, I’m hoping I’m able to navigate my face easily and hold it.

I just got mine and started using it so far I can completely agree. I have oily/combo skin and yeah I feel like I need to cleanse again.

I like my Luna for traveling, and the bristles are super gentle, but for everyday wear I prefer a standard sonic brush, too. I’m using Michael Todd Soniclear these days.

MarciaF July 3, 2015 - 6:15 pm

I like mine a lot but I also still use my Michael Todd SonicClear on other days. The massaging of the Foreo Luna is what I like and if I have any breakouts it’s gentle on them. For deeper cleaning though I will use my SonicClear.

Too bad it doesn’t work you, I love mine.

I’ve been using the Soniclear, which I love, but I won a Foreo Luna in a giveaway recently, and I’m excited to try it. I have oily skin, though, so I wonder if it will be a problem.

I definitely feel like this is great for sensitive skin.

That mani is gorgeous! :D It’s too bad this doesn’t work for you – I love mine. :)

I had a pretty similar experience with this. I have oily skin too and am much happier with my Clarisonic with delicate brush.
