Last year, one pulsating, two-sided device unilaterally impressed the VIOLET GREY team, forever changing our face-washing rituals. Called the Foreo Luna and recognizable by its sleek, silicone-encased design, it promised (and delivered) a more hygienic wash than its bristled competitors. Better still, the other side of the handheld contraption targets fine lines and wrinkles with lower-frequency pulsations. This spring, we were wowed once again by the brand’s latest model, the Luna 2. Foreo’s new sensitive brush (now 50 percent bigger to cover more surface area) is also twice as powerful as the original, removing makeup, dead skin, and 99.5 percent of pore-clogging dirt and oil with each use. In turn, it improves the absorption of your skincare essentials. Think of it as an upgrade to your iPhone.
HYGIENIC CLEANING: This deep-cleansing, 100 percent nonporous medical-grade silicone brush (you will never need a replacement) has seduced even the most cynical experts.
EVERYDAY USE: Pore-cleaning pulsations are gentle enough for daily use.
EFFICIENCY: Once charged, the energy-efficient device promises 450 cleansing sessions.
“Even people with the most sensitive skin will be able to enjoy this tool, which actually makes their skin healthier. It’s great for increasing circulation and boosting the lymphatic system.”—Joanna Vargas, facialist
