My Cleansing Routine Featuring The Foreo Luna 2



When it comes to keeping my face clean, my parents (specifically my beloved mom) raised with a few absolutes: Never absentmindedly touch your face (germs!), avoid picking at a blemish when you're "in a mood" (it rarely goes well) and always wash your face before going to bed (even if you're dead tired).

Consequently, not much has changed...I still have a serious aversion to touching my face (save, when applying makeup, of course), I am thankful to have (finally!) mostly grown out of the blemish phase and I make myself wash my face before retiring for the night, no matter now long my day has been.  Perhaps the most significant development, then, is the way I cleanse my face.

Today, I am excited to share my experience with the *Foreo Luna 2 for Sensitive Skin; this innovative device effortlessly removes every last speck of dirt without irritating my skin!

Kindly scroll on for more details, a list of my favorite cleansers and the Bottom Line...


Harnessing the power of transdermal sonic pulsations, the Foreo Luna 2 for Sensitive Skin is designed to gently cleanse skin with the use of an impressive 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute.  I generally use my Foreo Luna 2 each evening in the shower to effectively remove all traces of makeup without stripping my skin.  

Whether I use traditional Ivory soap or a high-end cleanser (see a list of favorites below), I consistently am left with smooth, balanced, impeccably clean skin that is fresh and ready to accept the post-shower skincare that follows.  With a massive surface area and flexible silicone touch points that mold to your face and feel like a light massage, this device is easy incredibly easy to use.  I just lather up my face, press the button (there are 12 intensities) and run it over the surface of my face for 1-2 minutes.  Once I rinse, I am left with a completely cleansed canvas.   

Some clear benefits that set the Foreo Luna 2 apart from more traditional cleansing methods for me include:
  • The surface device does not need to be periodically changed (unlike brush heads of spin brushes) and it is much more hygienic than a wash cloth that has been used a few times. It is also completely easy to clean. 
  • I love the fact that this waterproof device holds a charge for days on end and its power is easily replenished with a USB cord, making traveling with the Foreo Luna 2 a dream.  
  • The other side of the device features wavy lines that can be used to stimulate skin for an anti-aging effect; firmer, more lifted skin with less fine lines is two minutes away!
  • The Luna 2 seamlessly integrates with an existing skincare routine and works well with a variety of cleansers, enabling one to customize their cleansing experience. 
All in all, the Foreo Luna 2 for Sensitive Skin is an excellent cleansing option for those seeking efficacy and longterm benefits in their daily cleansing routine.  I adore reaching for each night as I "rinse of the day."  Thanks to an insane work schedule, I haven't yet taken full and consistent advantage of the anti-aging (lower pulsation) side of the device but I plan on devoting more time to this pursuit as time permits...will report back on my experience in the coming months.

To accompany my Foreo Luna 2, I have a revolving collection of cleansers (a testament to the fortitude of my massive shower caddy!) that I used depending on the shape and mood of my skin. 

They include:
  • Lift Lab Skin Regeneration Purify & Clarify (reviewed HERE): A fluffy cleanser/mask hybrid, I am proudly on tube #3 of this stellar formula...my skin feels fresh and if I need additional reinforcements, I can leave it on for a couple minutes for an even deeper clean.
  • *Mila Moursi Cleansing Foam (reviewed HERE): Light and simple yet intensely effective, I am almost finished with my tube of this brilliant, subtly foaming cleanser.  
  • *Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher (reviewed HERE): This gentle exfoliant, brimming with Hungarian mud, micro-algae and thermal water, is so finely milled that it smoothes away dry skin without the slightest trace of irritation.  Absolutely beautiful!
  • *Radical Skincare Hydrating Cleanser (reviewed HERE): This cleanser features a soft orange aroma and nourishing essential oils to cleanse skin while leaving it immensely moisturized.
  • *African Botanics Marula Buchu Botanical Enzyme Polish (reviewed HERE): Intoxicatingly fragrant (think, fresh papayas and seaside breezes), this cleanser employs the use of natural fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin and encourage cell turnover. 
  • *Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash: One of my favorite new discoveries...this features a modified version of the exfoliation properties of the original ExfoliKate coupled with the gentleness of a foaming cleanser, safe for daily use.  I am finding myself reaching for it constantly this spring!
The process. Silk robe from Neiman Marcus (a staple and currently on sale) + Turban from Gina Made It (stylish, comfortable and utilitarian)!
A perfect cleansing combination.
