Instagram made me buy it: FOREO LUNA fofo facial cleansing brush
I tried one of these face cleansing devices for a month and I'm never going back.

If you own a social media account, chances are you've seen an influencer using some kind of facial cleansing device. It may have been one of those swirling brush thingos or some other interesting (and slightly intimidating) contraption.
Well, I finally caved and decided to try one. And oh my gosh, I'll never go back.
In this instance, I'm talking about the FOREO LUNA fofo. This little bad boy has not only transformed my skin but my attitude towards skincare too.
So what is it?
If you're a little like me, you probably saw a bunch of influencers using these and either thought they were a bit of a fad or you simply had no idea what they were. But the FOREO devices are not only legit, they're also a godsend.
To put it simply, the FOREO LUNA fofo (which I will refer to simply as the fofo from now on) is a smart cleansing brush. It allows you to customise your skincare routine with the assistance of a smart beauty coach.
Yep, you read that right, folks. 2020 is the year of the smart beauty coach and boy oh boy am I here for it.
When setting everything up, you also need to download the FOREO app to pair with your device. The app asks you a series of questions such as your skin type, exercise habits (lol), sun sensitivity and age. It will then show you how long to spend cleansing your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, depending on its analysis.
So being as excited as I was to give my fofo a red hot go, I jumped straight in the shower and lathered up my face using the Tarte Knockout Cleanser.
Straight off the bat, this felt unlike anything I'd used before. Using circular motions on my face, it was super easy to clean every inch of my skin. It was also easy to know how long to clean each section of my face for, as my fofo would give a little pulse whenever it was time to change sections.
Honestly, it was over too quickly for me and I wanted to do it again, but the skincare gods told me that no, that probably wasn't a good idea.
After using this product just once my skin felt super smooth. I also felt like my skin stayed hydrated a lot longer once I applied the rest of my products too.
One month later…
I'm just going to come straight out and say that everyone needs one of these.
I have never had intense acne at all in my life, but I definitely had congested skin. That's had congested skin – emphasis on the past tense.
This bad boy has gotten rid of the problem skin areas that I'd had issues with for months. It's super super easy to use and it just improves every aspect of your skin. I. Am. Obsessed.
Before and after (one month)
Don't get me wrong, I'll still get the odd hormonal breakout here and there, or a naughty pimple might pop up every once in a while. I'm not saying you'll never have a pimple ever again if you use this product. But when those pesky spots do pop up, they're gone before you know it.
Where can you buy it and how much does it cost?
There is a wide range of devices you can buy from FOREO, but I'm just going to give a big ol' recommendation to try the fofo.
You can shop the product directly from the FOREO website or you can hit up my personal fave place to shop, Sephora.
It retails for $149, which is definitely on the expensive side of things, but given that that is also the price of some concealers, it isn't too high. Plus, the product is made with antibacterial silicone brushes so you're getting absolute quality here, people.
