I love using facial cleansing brushes and my favorites have been made by FOREO.  The numerous incarnations of the FOREO LUNA have proven to be remarkably effective for my normal/combination skin. I have used the original LUNA for Sensitive to Normal Skin (Pink LUNA shown below. Reviewed HERE) and the LUNA 2 for Combination Skin (Blue LUNA shown below. Reviewed HERE).

I recently began using the new FOREO LUNA 3, and I much prefer it to the earlier versions of this wonderful device. I received the model for normal skin, and I love the size of the touchpoints. As you can see, when compared to the picture of all three versions below, the touchpoints of the LUNA 3 cover a much larger surface area on the device– which makes using this version far more efficient. One of the primary differences that you will initially note when you set up your new LUNA 3 is that you need to download the FOREO app via Bluetooth to unlock your device before using it for the first time, but have no fear it is super fast and easy.
According to FOREO,

Ever made a last minute decision that changed everything? The workout’s over, you’re dripping with sweat and you just want to go home. But if you go out there with your face all sweaty and pores wide open, chances are slim you’ll get away clean.

LUNA 3 only takes a minute to wash away the dirt, oil and sweat known to cause breakouts. Because a deep cleanse today means clear skin tomorrow. No matter how long or hard you scrub with your hands, they’ll never get your face as clean, firm, and smooth as LUNA 3’s soft silicone and high-tech T-Sonic™ pulsations.

Sonic waves are sound waves. They vibrate really fast. When these waves are directed into your skin, they extend deep into your pores to gently shake loose dirt and make-up residue that washcloths and non-sonic face brushes can’t reach. Sonic waves also increase circulation, exfoliate the skin without pulling on it and improve detoxification by stimulating your skin at the cellular level. LUNA 3 sends 8,000 T-Sonic™ pulsations per minute into your pores to clean your face better than pretty much anything else on the planet. The ‘T’ stands for transdermal, which means ‘through the skin’.
The LUNA 3 for Normal Skin is made for normal skin that is "nearly problem free" and that essentially just needs daily maintenance to keep it in great shape. My skin can be sensitive, at times, but for the most part it doesn't breakout often. I do get some blackheads and whiteheads, but this sonic device does an excellent job clearing those pores,. Once in a while when I do get a pimple or two the LUNA 3 clears them quickly. The silicone touchpoints are soft and gentle against the skin, and in concert with FOREO's T-Sonic pulsations this device does a remarkable job cleaning out the pores, removing dirt and leaving skin clean and clear.

While the overall size of the LUNA 3 is the same as the LUNA and  LUNA 2, FOREO has increased the surface area of the cleansing brush and the anti-aging massage surface considerably. The bigger brush head, with many more touchpoints, makes the new version far more effective and efficient. The silicone touchpoints are plush and offer great comfort and higher performance. 
About the LUNA 3 for Normal Skin,

Congratulations, you basically won the gene pool lottery! But just because your skin is nearly problem-free doesn’t mean you should get lazy. Here’s how to keep your skin looking its best.

Your pores are probably on the smaller side - which is great! But that doesn’t make them immune to blackheads. You still need a regular skincare routine to stave off the occasional breakout. Use LUNA 3 for normal skin to help keep your face clean and glowing all day long.

Even people with normal skin aren’t safe from a random flare up. Use LUNA 3 for normal skin as a part of your regular routine to chase away blemishes before they appear. Its T-Sonic™ pulsations and silicone touchpoints keep your pores clean, giving you a flawless complexion.
N.B.: Using your LUNA post-workout when you have been sweating hard seems to work really well, in my experience. Your body is able to begin the process of clearing the pores, but the LUNA can get right in there and finish the job. I was actually pretty surprised by the extent to which this combination made such a huge difference. My skin was left with an even more pronounced glow and my pores looked even clearer than just using the LUNA alone.
Note just how many touchpoints populate the LUNA 3– particularly when compared to the earlier versions of the LUNA.
The Anti-Aging Mode visibly softens fine lines and appears to tone the skin. Skin appears lifted and more taut, and continued use really sustains and enhances the results. It also feels amazingly relaxing, and is the perfect way to get centered. You will also note that the On/Off button is now on the backside between the massaging ridges and the charging portal.
As noted, not only does the LUNA 3 more efficiently clean my skin than the LUNA and LUNA 2, but it also is more efficient in loosening and removing debris that clogs my pores. Like the original LUNA and LUNA 2 you don't need to apply pressure to the LUNA 3 to enhance its ability to clean. All that is needed is a light touch and the LUNA 3 will do all of the work for you. My skin is more luminous, radiant, even-toned, balanced and healthy since making the LUNA 3 part of my daily ritual.

The LUNA 3 thoroughly, and gently, cleans the skin and removes dead skin cells which allows serums, beauty oils and creams to absorb more deeply. Furthermore, clean and unclogged skin requires the use of less product, and therefore it is a far more economical approach to skincare in the long run.

Overall Assessment: If you are in the market for a facial cleansing brush, I highly recommend the LUNA 3. If you have normal-leaning skin, then I definitely suggest the LUNA 3 for Normal Skin. However, if your skin is more combination than normal, then you probably want the LUNA 3 for Combination Skin. If your skin is very sensitive, then the LUNA 3 for Sensitive Skin is probably your best bet, but if your skin isn't that sensitive, you may prefer the LUNA 3 for Normal or Combination Skin. The LUNA 3 is really a big improvement over the earlier versions, and if you are torn between the LUNA 2 and the LUNA 3, I would recommend the LUNA 3 because there are so many more touchpoints on the newer version that make it a more efficient model. If, however, you already have a LUNA or LUNA 2, there is no reason to buy the LUNA 3.

  1. If I needed a new one I'd definitely try the Luna 3. Improvements sound great on an already great cleansing tool.

    1. There's definitely no reason to buy the LUNA 3, if you have another version, but for anyone in the market to get on– it is definitely worth getting the LUNA 3 over the LUNA2. The improvements are definitely great, but the older versions are still amazing!

    1. It really is!! I imagine that anyone who receives this as a gift will be thrilled by its efficacy!

  3. I have an earlier generation of the pink sensitive to normal Foreo Luna. It’s indispensable!

  4. But how about if I'm not sure baby that my skin is normal or combination? Well I'm not really into the skincare or make up before but I really want to take care of my skin recently. Thanks

    1. Hi Ery, Thank you for reaching out. If your skin is normal, then it is pretty balanced without much in the way of an oily t-zone, or areas of dryness. If your skin is combination, you will likely have a more active (oily) t-zone. My skin is basically normal/combination– that is to say that I have a slightly active t-zone (with some oil, but not a lot). For me, my skin seldom has breakouts, and I don't produce enough oil in my t-zone to warrant the use of blotting papers, etc. It is for that very reason that I elected to test the FOREO for normal skin. Therefore, the one that you select should be based upon the needs of your skin. If your skin is like mine, then you could use either the normal or combination skin LUNA, but for me since my skin is closer to normal than try combination skin, it was the best fit for the needs of my skin. I hope that helps!
