Facial Cleansing Brush: Foreo Luna 2 Mini Review

I was lucky enough to be sent a Foreo Luna Mini 2 to put to the test. If you want to read the full haul from ry.com.au click here. I have used a few types of cleansing tools and brushes previously. What had my attention and what I felt separated this brush from the rest was that it was made entirely of silicon.

My main concern with cleansing brushes in the past has been the hygiene and cleanliness of them, regardless of the amount of cleaning and changing of the brush heads. The idea of the brush is to help improve the overall skin and to clear up congested skins with open pores, blockages and breakouts. But this seems counter productive when you are potentially using a brush full of bacteria and who knows what else.

By using Ultra-hygienic silicone the device can overcome those issues and hesitations due to silicon being nonporous and then able to resist bacteria buildup. It has also been found that silicon and Foreo is 35X more hygienic than standard nylon cleansing brushes.

If that wasn't enough to make it a clear winner in the brush cleansing world, here are some other awesome facts about the device.

  • Another big win for this device is that it is actually BUDGET FRIENDLY (in my eyes), once you purchase the brush you don't have to worry about repeatedly changing brush heads, especially if you want it to remain hygienic. Multiple brush heads every year add up to a massive extra cost on top of the device.

  • I love the small compact size of the brush. It is surprising how light it is as well, which is awesome when factoring in travel use. I also kept the clear hard plastic container if came in - I thought this would be perfect as a travel case. Although it would easily fit in a toiletry case.

  • The device is USB chargeable (the only point I was a little unsure about at first). The battery life on this little guy is incredible. Foreo claims it should last 300 uses of a single charge (roughly every 5 months). I have been using it once daily for a little over 2 months now and it is still going strong.

  • The brush head has 3 different zones for different cleansing requirements; Thinner touch-points gently cleanse sensitive and normal skin, Thicker touch-points for precision cleansing & also broader touch-points on the reverse side address oilier skin.
I have been really enjoying using the Foreo Luna mini 2. I trust the cleanliness of the product and appreciate the convenience of a longer battery life. I was able to notice a deep clean using this device whilst surprised at how gentle it was on my face.

  1. Sounds pretty awesome to me! I am yet to use mine but can't wait to try it out! <3


  2. I'm tempted to give this a try but I didn't get along to well with the clarasonic. Great review- I'm so tempted :)

  3. This sounds so good! I was interested in a clarisonic but like you said, replacing the brush heads all the time costs a fortune. I'd love to try one of these little guys and they are affordable like you said! Great post Shannon x

  4. Great review! The Foureo Luna 2 mini sounds amazing! I really want to try one now after reading your review!


  5. The thing I love most about these are the non-porous silicone fingers - it means it's so much safer to use than the brush bristles of other devices (cough, Clarisonic!)

    Plus, they just look so cute.

  6. I love mine, BUT I lost the charger! I can't seem to find a replacement which is a bummer because I don't want to buy a whole new device. Apart from that I do love these though. I'm curious as to how they'd compare to something like the clarisonics but I much prefer the hygiene of these

  7. These sound so interesting!!! I do wonder about the hygiene aspect, that's part of why I like the Clarisonic, that you change the brush heads (but it is expensive) I am excited to try the Foreo though

  8. Very good review! I`m very tempted to try :)

  9. These look so unique and I love the bright colour choices! Must admit I didn't know much at all about this product before reading your post!

  10. I haven't heard about these at all, but I am intrigued! They definitely sound hygienic. Being USB chargeable sounds so convenient!

  11. Great review! I've been wondering what these are like as I've never used one. I used to use the Clinique Sonic Brush so not sure how that compares. I think these are cute too! :) x

  12. I've seen these floating around on the internet for quite a while now and was really intrigued to find out how they work and just how effective they really are! Thanks so much for sharing! x
    Lots of love,

  13. I love the idea of these, but I always forget to use them. I can't remember the last time I used my Clarisonic!

  14. I also have the foreo mini but haven't used it much. I think it's too small. That said you reminded me that I have it and should retry it!!

  15. I have been after a cleansing brush for ages, but always held back as I didn't like that you had to repurchase the heads... I think the Foreo just jumped to the top of my list!
