Out of every question that plagues skincare device enthusiasts, one reigns supreme: “which FOREO LUNA™ should I get?” We totally get it. It can be overwhelming to come across the colorful, rainbow-hued world of FOREO skincare devices for the first time, but we’re here to make it simple. If you’ve ever wanted to find the best FOREO LUNA™ for your needs, this is your post. Keep reading, and let us find you a new skincare gadget!
What is FOREO LUNA™?
FOREO LUNA™ is a unique collection of glow-boosting facial cleansing massagers. These devices use a high-tech combination of ultra-hygienic silicone touchpoints and patented T-Sonic™ pulsations to give you a deep yet gentle cleansing experience. Together, these two innovations dislodge dirt, oil, and other accumulated impurities with ease, therefore restoring the glow and radiance of your skin.
This sounds simple enough—but there are quite a few LUNA™ devices to choose from. They all use silicone touchpoints and patented T-Sonic™ pulsations (8.000 T-Sonic™ pulsations per minute), and they are all waterproof. Most are rechargeable via USB; the rest use AAA batteries. However, there are a few more variations between the devices that make them more suitable for specific lifestyles or skincare needs. One thing is for sure: whether you’re a skincare pro or a busy bee on-the-go, you’ll find your match here! Are you ready to find the best FOREO LUNA™ for your needs?
Here’s the best FOREO LUNA™ for you
With so many models and colors to choose from, the LUNA™ range can be a little overwhelming. Don’t worry, though! We’ve made you a cheat sheet below:
From left to right, this is our current range:
- The ultra-smart device with built-in heating and microcurrent technologies, FOREO LUNA™ 3 Plus
- The ultimate skin cleanser and massager, FOREO LUNA™ 3
- Two smaller but no less powerful options, FOREO LUNA™ mini 2 and FOREO LUNA™ mini 3
- The world’s tiniest beauty coach, FOREO LUNA™ fofo
- Your intro to the LUNA™ world, FOREO LUNA™ play plus 2
The first thing you need to know about the LUNA™ range is that they’re available in a variety of colors that don’t actually influence the features of each device—except in the FOREO LUNA™ 3 and 3 Plus models, where different colors match different skin types. Find your color, and you will find the best FOREO LUNA™ for you!
FOREO LUNA™ 3 Plus
The Ultra-Smart Device For A Heated Facial Cleanse
As the latest addition to the FOREO LUNA™ family, the new FOREO LUNA™ 3 Plus is truly pushing the envelope when it comes to skincare devices. Like the LUNA™ 3, it features upgraded T-Sonic™ pulsations at 16 different intensities, full customization, and easy app connectivity. There is so much more, though!
The FOREO LUNA™ 3 Plus is the first FOREO LUNA™ device to feature Thermo-Tech, a unique technology that provides a heated facial cleanse at the perfect temperature for your skin. The temperature is customizable from 0°C to 55ºC, so you can easily find the sweet spot for your skin preferences. Moreover, this ultra-smart device is also equipped with Targeted Microcurrent capabilities. Connect your device to the FOREO app, and enjoy the various microcurrent treatments available to you. Powered by low-level electrical energy, these treatments will help you firm and plump your skin for a more youthful appearance.
For the time being, the new FOREO LUNA™ 3 Plus is available in two colors: pink for normal skin types, and lilac for sensitive skin types.
In short, the FOREO LUNA™ Plus 3 is right for you if you:
- Want to level up your cleansing routine with a heated facial cleanse
- Are curious about microcurrent treatments, but don’t want to invest in a dedicated microcurrent device
- Have sensitive skin and want to match your device to your skin type
FOREO LUNA™ 3
The Ultimate Cleanser & Firming Massager
The LUNA™ 3 is much more than a cleansing device—it’s also a serious facial massager. With the LUNA™ 3, you get the best of FOREO tech: upgraded T-Sonic™ pulsations at 16 different intensities, full customization, and easy app connectivity for a true home spa experience.
If you’re looking for the best FOREO LUNA™ for anti-aging, this is it. Simply connect your LUNA™ 3 to the FOREO app, and select your favorite firming massage treatment from the four available options: you will be able to target your eye contour, your neck, your facial contours, and even your expression lines.
There’s one thing to keep in mind when choosing your LUNA™ 3: you should match its color to your skin type. Normal skin types should opt for the pink device. If you have sensitive skin, go for the lilac device: it uses ultra-soft silicone touchpoints that are extra-gentle on your skin. If you struggle with dry skin, this may also be a good option for you. The super-soft silicone touchpoints will improve the absorption of your skincare products, helping active ingredients reach deep into your skin.
Combination or oily skin? Then the blue device is for you. It uses slightly thicker silicone touchpoints, which will help you keep your T-zone fresh and your skin blemish-free. If you are a little acne-prone, this FOREO LUNA™ can help you prevent the appearance of pimples. (If you’d like to minimize existing pimples, however, the best FOREO for acne is the FOREO ESPADA™.)
In short, the FOREO LUNA™ 3 is right for you if you:
- Want the full spa experience, with different anti-aging and firming massages
- Value app connectivity and a feature-rich experience
- Want a cleansing device that matches your skin type
FOREO LUNA™ mini 2
3-Zone Design For Different Areas
Going down a size from the titular LUNA™, we find the LUNA™ mini , which is currently available in two versions: the mini 2, and the “smart” mini 3.
Let’s get to know the LUNA™ mini 2 first. With 8 different intensities, this device brings you a fully customizable, spa-like experience. You can dial up or tone down the intensity of your cleanse in order to match your unique skin profile. After all, nobody knows your skin like you!
The unique 3-zone design of the LUNA™ mini 2 lets you adapt your cleansing experience to different areas of your face; besides the usual silicone touchpoints, it features an area of soft, thinner touchpoints, as well as an area of slightly thicker ones. Use the thinner touchpoints on sensitive areas, and the thicker touchpoints on oilier spots—it’s that simple.
In short, the FOREO LUNA™ mini 2 is right for you if you:
- Want a device that adapts to different areas of your face
- Value a compact device that suits your busy lifestyle
- Like to keep things simple—app connectivity sounds too complicated!
FOREO LUNA™ mini 3
Your Mini Glow Booster
The LUNA™ mini 3 is just as small as the previous option, but it packs a bunch of new features—including 12 intensities and the all-new Glow Boost mode! Curious? It does exactly what it says by giving you clean, glowing skin in only 30 seconds.
Compared to the LUNA™ mini 2, this upgraded design features a larger brush head with softer, longer touchpoints. Distributed along a dual cleansing surface, these touchpoints allow for an even gentler cleanse, without ever compromising on the customizable experience that FOREO is known for. The LUNA™ mini 3 is also much, much smarter than its predecessor; now it offers app connectivity, keeping you fully updated with all the latest beauty tech.
In short, the FOREO LUNA™ mini 3 is right for you if you:
- Are all about that glow
- Want a compact device but don’t want to miss out on any tech features
- Value a long battery life—the mini 3 packs 100 more uses per charge than the mini 2!
