(PLUS WIN 1 of 10 GADGETS TO TRY YOURSELF!)
The days of manually using our hands to cleanse our faces are somewhat numbered; although I love a muslin cloth and a manual workout, I'm also an absolute advocate for electronic cleansing devices which thoroughly rid the skin of dirt and grime. Although they can be a significant investment in your regime, the benefit that these little gadgets can bring to your skin is comparable to using your GHDs vs towel drying. (Sure, you end up with more or less the same result but it's just not as polished!) FOREO are a multi-award winning Swedish brand that have revolutionised the way in which we look after our faces, all since they launched only three years ago in 2013. Their approach to wellbeing and beauty is refreshing, understanding the increasing demands of a modern consumer and trying to meet those needs in a revolutionary way. They say: "It is FOREO's responsibly to lead with innovation, to be non-conformist, free thinking and challenging of the status quo and the traditional approach in beauty." One of the ways in which they've achieved that is via their iconic LUNA facial cleansing brushes, which remove 99.5% of dirt and blemish causing impurities. These handheld devices feature a unique silicone design that is 35 times more hygienic than other bristle-based brushes, as there's nowhere for grime and bacteria to get stuck; they're easy to use, easy to clean and easy to love - so it's no surprise that they unveiled yet another addition to the collection last week, which is quite possibly the most exciting yet!
The new LUNA play cleansing brush is the smallest within the range, but it still provides a serious amount of power. No bigger than a cotton pad, the super cute cleansing tool is lightweight and incredibly soft - but that doesn't stop it from providing the benefits of clear, healthy skin and up to 100 uses. Suitable for all skin types, this tiny sister of the original incorporates the same pulsation technology along with FOREO’s signature silicone touch points; it includes thicker nodules at the top to deliver an intense clean for oily-prone and hard-to-reach areas, as well as softer and thinner touch-points that provide a gentle clean for even the most sensitive of skins. Ultra compact, the LUNA play is ideal for those new to cleansing devices who want to experience FOREO’s award-winning technology for the first time, before investing in its larger-sized companions - plus it’s ultra-travel friendly for those who just want a cute miniature version of their favourite device for on-the-go situations. As someone who loves mini things this instantly had my attention, but the LUNA play is so much more than that. Here are the six reasons you're going to love this newest launch.. 1. INCREDIBLY EFFECTIVE: FOREO's T-Sonic pulsation technology has been clinically proven to remove 99.5% of dirt, oil and makeup residue. Dead skin cells are cleared away, enhancing the absorption of skincare products and also diminishing the appearance of pores to refine skin texture. 2. TWO NODULE SIZES: A dual-zone range of long touch-points allow for soft flexibility when making contact with the skin to reach into all facial contours. 3. TONNES OF POWER: A powerful motor delivers 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute dislodging impurities over one single, easy-to-operate intensity. 4. ULTRA HYGIENIC: The unique silicone design is quick drying and nonporous to prevent bacteria buildup; the device is 35X more hygienic than nylon-bristled brushes. 5. TRAVEL FRIENDLY: The ultra-compact size makes it perfect for mini-breaks and holidays, while the long-life means you can use it up to 100 times without the need for recharging. 6. SUPER AFFORDABLE: Unlike many of the FOREO devices which can be somewhat of a significant investment, at £29.99 the new Luna Play provides an accessible way to test out the craze for yourself. As someone who travels a lot but doesn't like to scrimp on my skincare routine when I'm away, this is a great way to ensure an effective cleanse 365 days of the year while giving my creams a boost too. (When skin is thoroughly cleansed of dirt and dead skin, products can penetrate deeper and get to work with ease.) Although there's only one speed setting, this doesn't bother me at all as I only ever use the main setting on my usual FOREO LUNA anyway. Interestingly, and rather surprisingly, the LUNA play is actually intended to be disposable as you can't re-charge it once you've used up the battery life; not only does this help keep the cost of the unit down, but it makes it a perfect way to decide whether you like the LUNA concept and want to invest in a full-size version. It's also a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling fab on the move, while not having to worry about whether your expensive gadgets are going to get lost in transit - it works out at only 29p a cleanse! Although the throwaway nature of the LUNA play won't be for everyone, it's a great innovation and a fascinating new way to meet a consumer need that hasn't been done before. If you want to try this fabulous new gadget for yourself, then you're in luck - because I've got TEN LUNA plays to give away!
