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!

Estee Lauder powerfoil mask.

I am a total mask junkie…true story!!! and my family is annoyed with me because I constantly have something on my face…can’t help it! I find this the perfect way to de-stress and feel refreshed. So I have a couple that I use and am in love with but I came across this one a while ago and bought the 4 pack one from the Sephora website. I love the way my skin feels after using the Estee Lauder Advanced Repair Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil mask. This is one pricey little sucker. Super expensive but super worth it. I use this once every 2 weeks or so, or whenever my skin needs a little pick me up. This mask is a great way to prep your skin for an important event and get a healthy glow without paying the price of a facial.

The mask itself is like a cloth material on the inside with foil on the outside (to maintain all the goodness locked in place). It’s very easy to put on your face and stays put once placed on the skin. You have to put the bottom layer first and then put the top one… then you leave this on for 10 minutes (as per directions), but I cheat and leave it on for 20.
It looks a little scary, like Jason X Friday the 13th scary…but the results are remarkable!!! The first time I used it; it took away the redness and made my skin so soft and toned. I have sensitive skin and break out easily, but I didn’t have any problems with this mask and I even noticed my dark eye circles were a little bit lighter after use.
It sells for 25$ CAD for one mask for 88$ CAD for 4 and that’s the only downside really. It’s expensive, but there’s so much product left in there that you can keep using it as a serum a couple of days after. I usually apply the rest of the liquid on my neck and shoulders…the rest of your body needs love too!
I will definitely be a repeat buyer of this mask because it does the job and delivers its promise of giving you youthful radiant skin.
If you’re looking for a good pick me up mask that will give you radiant skin, then this is worth a try.
Hope this little mini review helped!
Until next time,
Cheers x
