With a motor two times as powerful and a brush surface made out of smooth, soft, nonabrasive silicone, the LUNA 2 Professional is gentle and effective. Dual T-Sonic pulsations are channeled through softer, longer silicone touch points to deeply cleanse the skin, unclogging pores of 99.5% of impurities and clearing away dead skin cells. Providing an essential step in any facial care routine, it cleanses in a way that protects the skin's natural barrier while the nonporous silicone resists bacteria buildup, making it 35 times more hygienic than standard brush heads. A single charge gives you 450 uses.

    1. Me too, twinsy! It smells so good! I am already on my second bottle of the Eau de Parfum! It smells like Hawaii to me!

  3. These are heavenly. My Artis Oval 10 brush snapped at the thin part of the handle and I'm so sad about it. I don't need the set but the brush would make me so happy. Will you be my secret santa? :)

    1. Thanks, Marcia! I definitely selected the things that I would be thrilled to receive! What a bummer that the handle on your Artis Oval 10 snapped. Can you just file down the jagged edge and use it like the Palm Brush?

  4. What a fabulous list, I have a few of these but would like more. I've been on the fence for so long on the Hourglass palette, I should just bite the bullet.

    1. Me too! I selected things that I would be thrilled to receive, or that I have and love! I don't have that HG Palette, but am definitely contemplating it!

  5. The more I scrolled through this, the more I wanted everything! So many perfect gift ideas.
