Whether you are looking to take your own skin cleansing routine to the next level, or looking to buy your mom a special gift for Mother's Day, the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 and FOREO LUNA Mini 3 offer two great options. The former is the more affordable older version, and has fewer bells and whistles, but it offers the same exceptional cleansing as the Mini 3. The latter certainly has more options, but if you are on a budget you won't feel cheated if you purchase the Mini 2 instead. Additionally, FOREO Micro-Foam Cleanser is a wonderful foaming cleanser that is very gentle and effective, and it pairs perfectly with all of the LUNA devices.
Both models feature touch points are very soft against the skin without sacrificing efficacy. They are both small enough to carry in your gym bag or your travel bag.
Unlike cleaning devices, with removable brush heads, that only clean the face, the LUNA is an ingenious two-sided sonic cleaner that offers added functionality.
The pragmatic design, which altogether eliminates the need for a removable brush-head that has to be replaced every few months, eliminates the same level of cleaning to remove bacteria buildup from the device itself. Furthermore, the all-silicone device is ultra-hygienic, and therefore resists bacteria buildup. Both version offer a 2 year limited warranty, a USB charger and a sample of Serum Serum Serum. The LUNA Mini 3 also comes with a travel pouch.FOREO LUNA Mini 3 ($159.00 from FOREO, Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom and Macy's): The FOREO LUNA 3 features a brush head that is 40% larger, than its predecessors, and its touchpoints are 25% softer and 10% longer than the earlier versions. This means that it is more effective and efficient in its ability to access hard-to-reach areas, and to clean the skin faster than the earlier versions (such as the FOREO LUNA Mini 2). This compact, and waterproof, device offers up to 400 uses on a full charge.

Cleaning your device: Always clean your device thoroughly after use. Wash the brush surface with water and soap, then rinse with warm water. Avoid using clay-based, silicone-based or grainy cleansers, exfoliators or scrubs, as they may damage the device's soft silicone touchpoints. Pat dry with a lint-free cloth or towel. After use, we recommend spraying the device with FOREO Silicone Cleaning Spray and rinsing with warm water for optimal results.
The thicker touch points found on the back of the LUNA Mini 3 provides a deep precision cleanse for active t-zones.
According to FOREO,
The LUNA mini 2 marks a revolution in facial cleansing, combining FOREO’s groundbreaking T-Sonic pulsations with an innovative silicone brush design for a deeper and gentler cleanse. When channeled through smooth, silicone touch-points, T-Sonic massaging pulsations remove blemish-causing impurities significantly more effectively than washing by hand, leaving skin clearer and brighter. Deep cleansing unblocks pores and reduces their appearance, refining and smoothing your skin’s texture.
Suitable for all skin types, the LUNA mini 2's 3-zone brush features thinner touch-points to gently cleanse sensitive or dry skin and thicker touch-points for precision cleansing on the front, and broad touch-points to refresh oilier skin on the back. We recommend cleansing with the LUNA mini 2 for 1 minute every morning and evening.

1. APPLY CLEANSER
Remove all makeup, wet the LUNA mini 2 then dampen your face and apply your regular cleansing product. Turn on your LUNA mini 2 by pressing the center button.
2. CLEANSE THE FOLLOWING ZONES:
Every 15 seconds pulsations will pause to indicate when to cleanse a new zone.
- Massage your chin and cheek using circular movements and repeat on the other side.
- Starting from the center, massage your forehead with gentle outward circular strokes.
- Massage the nose by gliding up and down one side, then the other. Delicately massage the under-eye region using outward strokes – we suggest reducing the pulsation intensity.
Rinse and dry your face to complete the 1-minute cleansing routine. Then, apply your favorite skincare products, if any.
