The Foreo experience

img_3841

I’m not one to spend so much money on little gadgets and beauty tools…but my skin had a little bit of unwanted texture over the end of the summer and carried on like this till October. It was gross to the touch; almost felt like a sidewalk or something. I used to wash my face with the Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System for the longest time and I was quite satisfied with it. However, when I felt like my skin got drier and more sensitive, I knew that the bristles were irritation and stripping my skin for its natural oils. I stopped it for a while but I couldn’t get rid of the dead skin. I had seen and heard about the Luna device but never wanted to invest it because of the steep price (299$). I heard so many people rave about it and swear by it in their daily skincare routines. When I got notification of a 20% discount at the Sephora VIB Rouge sale, I though this is the chance to risk it and try it out. It’s now or never!

I wanted to try the product for a little while before I shared my opinion and thoughts with you guys. I have been using it for a little over 3 months now and it is safe to say that this little baby changed my life. Literally! It helped improve my skin texture, remove dirt gently, exfoliate lightly and improve circulation. I can honeslty attest that the Foreo Luna 2 changed the way I clean my skin! It’s super safe to use on sensitive, eczema-prone skin. ANDDD I use it morning and night! So far, my skin loves it.

 

A The Luna is made with a thick silicone material, which makes it easy to clean, easy to use and makes it gentle on the skin. It’s waterproof! So it’s totes safe to use freely under water…which I don’t usually do, but this is a good option to have. The device comes with 2 sides, the one with the little bristles and the one with the big waves. One side for cleaning and one side for massaging your products into your skin. I do not ever use that side, but that’s an option for those who want to get the full experience. This device pulsates and allows you to clean your skin everywhere on a timed frame…which means that you do not over-clean and strip your skin or hurt it.

Now, this device claims to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and it helps obtain radiant, firm, youthful-looking skin. Now, I don’t know about the wrinkles and fine line, but I do know that I have radiant, healthier looking skin. What I like about it is the shape, I feel like its shape is perfect enough for you to get those little narrow ridges clean. Like around your nose or under your lips. It honestly feel like you’re getting a baby massage every time you clean your face. It gives you the right amount of clean with the right amount of fresh and plump. I feel like products skin better and absorb better with the help of this device.

I am super surprised that I would like this so much, but I really do! Plus I do not have to change batteries or charge it. I have been on the same charge for the past 3 months. This is always a plus for me!

If you’re looking into investing in the Luna device, I recommend it! Annnnd on top of it, there’s a little offer right now on the Sephora website, where you can get the Luna in a package with products for 199$. They have the sensitive skin one and the combination skin one.

It’s truly a good investment, especially that it gives you results. It’s totes a keeper!

Simply simple

IMG_5217

I tried a couple of cleansers to gently remove my makeup…since having sensitive skin; everything I have been trying either caused me eczema or burned my eyeballs. And I don’t like the oil removing cleansers. I tried Klorane, Bioderma, Neutrogena, Vichy and loads more…but they either burned me or made me breakout. I heard a lot about Simple and I thought I have nothing to lose if I tried it out. This Simple Micellar Water Cleanser won me over because there is no alcohol content and contains niacinamide. Niacinamide is good towards fading hyperpigmentation – it also helps prevents skin from losing water content and it stimulates microcirculation in the dermis.

None of the other micellar waters I have used have this as a vital ingredient. Since my skin has been acting very dry lately…I noticed that this makes my skin feel normal, clean, hydrated and healthy. Usually I hesitate on what I apply on my face, but this makes me feel safe to reapply it when necessary. I use it both morning and night, and also as a make-up and eye make-up remover and it does the job thoroughly. Takes about 1-2 round cotton pads to clean my whole face (if I wear heavy make-up..which is very rare).

This is definitely a staple product to have around and I will definitely repurchase this. They’re not expensive and sometimes they even go on special-2 for 1.

Micellar Cleansing Water is best for normal to dry or sensitive skin. And this fragrance-free formula is gentle and doesn’t bother oily or breakout-prone skin. Since this is meant to be left on skin, it’s good that it contains a couple of anti-irritants plus the cell-communicating ingredient niacinamide.

Here’s what I like about it:
Fragrance-free, mild formula.
Unlikely to irritate skin or cause sensitivity.
Contains anti-irritants.
Inexpensive.

Have you guys tried it and what do you think about this cleanser?
