Foreo Luna Play facial cleansing device

I certainly wouldn't recommend letting my spiky little friend in the background anywhere near your face, but I would recommend that you let a Foreo Luna Play work it's magic on your skin.

Although I do have a Magnitone cleansing brush I've always been slightly concerned that the brush type bristles might be doing more harm to my skin then good. They feel soft enough and the brush doesn't appear to irritate my skin, it does improve the appearance of my skin, but I'd still prefer a more gentle alternative. I've always had my eye on the Foreo cleansing tools, but with the original one costing somewhere around the £100 mark it has always been a bit out of my price range. So when I spotted that Foreo had released a new tiny little dinky version called the Foreo Luna Play, which costs just £30, I got very excited. I got even more excited when I was lucky enough to win one to try from The Sunday Girl.

My excitement over the Foreo Luna Play was slightly short lived when I discovered that they are actually disposable. Once the up to 100 uses charge that this comes with has died, that's it, you can't recharge it and so have to throw it away. I've tried to tell myself that it's the same as buying a £30 product that you use until it's gone and then throw away, but I can't help feeling it's wasteful. Don't forget electrical items should actually be correctly disposed off so they can be recycled, so you really shouldn't be just chucking this in the bin. I'm guessing the small price tag and disposable nature of this might be to encourage you to give it a try and then maybe go on to purchase a larger rechargeable version.

There's no denying this is a very cute little beauty tool. It's a little bit smaller than a round cotton pad, so it really is compact and dinky. I have the hot pink one, but it does come in seven colours, including pale pink and blue, purple, yellow, a darker blue and black. Rather than possibly harsh scrubbing bristles this features a silicone 'brush' that is extra gentle and super hygienic as bacteria won't build up on it. This uses up to 8000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute, so all you'll feel is a gentle vibration against your skin. This removes 99.5% of dirt, oil, make-up residue and dead skin cells, refines texture, evens out the complexion and enhances absorption of skincare products.

All you need to do is wet the brush, either apply your cleaner (avoiding anything clay or silicone based or grainy) to the brush or directly to your face and then move the brush gently around your face for one minute. The instructions recommend spending 15 seconds on each area of the face, but unlike other devices this doesn't beep to tell you when to move on, so you have to either count or just guess. I think that's why it states you will get up to 100 uses from this, because the time isn't measured, so it's likely you may spend longer using it each time than you think you do.

I've found that this does exactly what it promises to do. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, has helped to reduce the redness across my cheeks and scaring on my chin and has helped to clear out the congested pores on my chin and prevent breakouts. When you use this it barely feels like it's doing anything, but it obviously is and is apparently doing it very well.

When I first opened the packaging I found a code that you enter online for a free gift. When I entered my code I discovered my free gift was an upgrade to the Luna 2; so effectively a discount to the value of the Luna Play (£30). When I saw upgrade I thought this would be to the next most expensive product, which is £69. Actually that one is the Luna Go; the Luna 2 is £149! If the upgrade had been to the Go then I would have considered this as I think paying an additional £40 to upgrade is a very good offer. But unfortunately over £100 is out of my price range.

I'm really enjoying using the Luna Play and I know I'll be devastated when it emits its final T-Sonic pulse. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to cope without this so I think I'm going to have to save up towards the Luna Go.

Have you tried any of the Foreo cleansing devices?

  1. I've not actually heard of this product before but am really keen to give it a try! Love a good skincare/facial cleansing routine. It is a little pricey though unfortunately :( xx

    1. It is a very good one. I'd say to try the Luna Play to see if you like it but like I said I feel that's a little bit of a waste of £30. But then obviously going straight for the non disposable Go costs £70! x

  2. I have heard a lot about this, it sounds pretty nifty. I am not sure how good I would be at doing this every day though. Great post and review x

    1. You don't have to use it every day. You can use it as and when you wish and obviously if you have the Luna Play it will feel like it lasts longer before the charge runs out! x
