I have a love-hate relationship with this time of year. Before I turned 18, it was always a love relationship, because who doesn’t LOVE the holidays when you’re that young? In a week and a half, I’ll be turning 25. Honestly, I’m not all too stoked about it. Is it just me… or are birthdays just not that exciting after you become an adult? Okay, maybe it is just me because I don’t care for drinking… and other things that normal adults might care for LOL. In any case, as I get older, I’ve definitely been putting more effort and thought into my skin care routine. IF there’s anything I care for as I get older, it’s my YOUTH. Yes, I have a strong fear for aging… I know I won’t be able to get away with having perfect skin without putting in much effort forever. That, and I’d rather not take the risk. With that said, I’ve been introducing some new products into my routine! One of my current favorite devices is FOREO’s LUNA Play. I love it for so many reasons and I am excited to share them with you!
Firstly, the LUNA Play is literally the size of a macaroon. It’s even available in several different colors… just like a macaroon! How cool is that? I got the purple one because it’s my favorite color, but they also have other gorgeous choices to choose from, like pink, blue, and even mint. Because it’s so lightweight and small, I can easily stuff it in my make-up bag and take it wherever I go. Talk about travel-friendly! The only down side is that it is not rechargeable like FOREO’s other skin care products or the Clarisonic brush. The website says that the LUNA Play lasts up to 100 full cleansing routines, with each use roughly around a minute long.
PRACTICAL & SANITARY
I find this device to be a lot more sanitary than some other competitor products out there since it’s not really a brush. Instead, it’s made of silicone bristles which makes it great for sensitive skin. It pulsates very gently to reduce the signs of aging. The bristles at the tip are thicker for deeper, precision cleansing, while the smaller bristles surrounding the bigger ones work to gently cleanse simultaneously. While it doesn’t feel intense, it definitely does a great job cleaning. I have used it to remove the remainder of my make-up after using make-up remover wipes to take the majority of it off, and it works wonders! My skin is left super smooth and feels clean. I love that I can easily angle the device to clean the harder-to-get areas, such as around my nose and under my eyes. After using, the device can be easily cleaned with some warm water and be good as new again!
AFFORDABLE & GREAT FOR NEW USERS
My LUNA Play came with 2 small tubes of morning and night cleansers. The morning one smells and feels like a citrusy yogurt, which gives a nice refreshing feel to start the day. The night time one has more of a cleanser type of consistency with some micro-beads for everyday exfoliating. I use the LUNA Play twice a day — once in the morning and once at night pulsating a minute each time on my entire face and neck areas. After using the device for two weeks, my skin not only feels cleaner, but tighter too. I’m hoping that by keeping up with my new routine, I’ll be able to reverse my years rather than get older. 😉
Overall, I’d say that this device is a fantastic starter for those interested in trying out FOREO products, but don’t want to jump the gun & splurge on some of the more pricier products in their skin care range. The LUNA Play goes for $39 USD on their website which is extremely reasonable, especially compared to their other products ranging anywhere from $99 to… $6,500. Starting on November 24 and going through November 28, FOREO is offering a Black Friday promotion of 25% off all their devices on their website. So, if you have been looking to try out a new skin care device that works wonders, now is your chance!
