19 Aug HOW CLEAN CAN YOU GO?
There have been a lot of face cleansing tools surfacing the last 5 years. Although I have been an avid Clarisonic user, I decided to give the Foreo Luna a try too.
I started using my Clarisonic Mia 2 Hollywood Lights Purple ($149) in 2012 with the sensitive brush head on it. I was never the type to use it every day. Maybe at most, three times a week. So I never had the problem of it ever being too harsh on my skin like I know some people do. In the last 2 years, I’ve switched brush heads to the Delicate Cleansing Brush Head ($27) which has more gentle bristles.
Being a Clarisonic user, I was intrigued and curious. It’s really hard not to be tempted to buy things while you’re waiting in line to checkout at Sephora. Yes, this is the excuse/reason I ended up buying the Foreo Luna Play ($39). I decided not to get the other types since I was only trying it out. The version I have is non rechargeable but it does have 100 uses.
When I bought my Clarisonic, it came with a set of the sensitive brush head, a case and a mesh bag for traveling. It cleans and smoothens out my face really well. The brush rotates and reaches every tiny crevice in your face. You can also play around with the speed making it either faster or slower depending on your preference. With no fail every time I use the Clarisonic, my skin looks and feels smoother and leaves me with a radiant glow. My only complain is the fact that you have to change the brush head every three months, which could be quite costly. And also having to clean the brush head when there’s too much makeup/dirt in there
The Foreo Luna Play claims to remove 99.5% of oil, dirt and makeup. It also has a unique silicone design to prevent bacteria buildup which makes it fast drying as well. The size is very travel friendly and it has come in handy in times of need. The Foreo Luna Play uses vibration as its way of removing/cleaning your face. I’ve used my Luna Play for a good three months now but I’m really not 100% happy with it. My skin doesn’t feel smooth after I use it and sometimes there is still makeup residue left.
The verdict? I’d still choose Clarisonic over the Foreo Luna. It works well with my face overall. I can tell my dead cells are gone and my skin is at its smoothest. The Foreo is definitely more cost friendly but I just don’t feel like it gets all the gunk out of my face. I’ve heard it’s really good for anti aging but that’s not why I bought the product.
