Review: FOREO LUNA 3 Plus (Current Fave 2-in-1 Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device)

January 21, 2022

Investing in a good skincare device is one of the best decisions you can make for yourself.

As I age, I fear not only skin breakouts but also signs of aging – lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging. I am one of those who are not blessed with flawless skin, and I battled with acne and breakout for the most years of my life. I have long accepted the fact about genetics (though my mom takes pride in our good body skin,  it is a different story when it comes to face skin). When I look at my old photos, I honestly cannot believe how I even embraced an unhealthy lifestyle that triggered the skin breakouts.

As I age, I kicked the bad habits and lifestyle, and I try to take care of myself. One of the skincare investments I have is a FOREO device. FOREO is a trusted Swedish beauty tech brand that carries different beauty devices and skincare tools. I am one of the many believers of the brand. From FOREO LUNA 2, I have upgraded to the latest FOREO LUNA 3 Plus. The FOREO LUNA 3 Plus is a complete facial device that cleanses, purifies, and tightens the skin. It is like having my own facial and anti-aging device at home.

The FOREO LUNA 3 Plus

The FOREO LUNA 3 Plus offers thermo-facial cleansing, firming massage, and targeted microcurrent technology all in one device. While I am already impressed by the FOREO LUNA 2 and how it cleanses my skin, I am pleasantly surprised to use the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus that incorporates innovative technology to give me brighter and tighter skin.

Here are the key features of the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus:

T-Sonic pulsations: 8,000 pulsations per minute at 16 different speeds help remove unwanted dirt, oil, and makeup residue from the skin. I really love the pulsating sensation that gives me the assurance that my skin is thoroughly cleansed while massaging my face during the process.

Thermo-Tech Technology: The FOREO LUNA 3 Plus has 8 thermal touchpoints at the front that heats up fast and helps to melt down stubborn makeup residue and excess sebum. The innovative combination of thermal and ultra-hygienic soft silicone touchpoints removes up to 99.5% of impurities from the skin. It feels really relaxing to the face.

Targeted Microcurrent: At the back of the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus are two pins that generate low-level electrical energy to help firm and plump up the skin. The microcurrent pins target specific areas that show signs of aging. I use to go to a skincare clinic and avail of micro-current treatments, so this feature feels so luxurious to have at home. I literally get access to facial treatments anytime I want them – at home or even on travels.

Microcurrent Treatments in skincare clinics use microcurrent machines to transmit low-voltage electricity to your skin and facial muscles. The electrical waves then penetrate the skin and muscles, which then stimulates the production of collagen and elastin that help give us glowing and more youthful skin. The FOREO LUNA 3 Plus can do exactly the same treatment with just a small, portable device.

How I Use My FOREO LUNA 3 Plus

To use the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus, you just need to download the FOREO app, connect it via Bluetooth and register the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus. If you have an existing FOREO device, you just simply “add” the new device in your account. Connecting the device is so easy and convenient, and you can use the device right away. There is even a cool “Find My LUNA” feature in case you misplaced your device during packing/travels.

I love that I can adjust the total treatment duration and cleansing routines for the 4 areas of my face. I can also adjust the temperature of the thermal points. I personally set mine to 45 degrees Fahrenheit and 20 seconds on each area. I use my favorite facial cleanser and just glide the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus on my face, focusing on each area – cheeks, chin, and forehead. For first-time FOREO users, you will feel a beat after cleansing a specific area; this is a signal to move to the next area. After covering all the areas, the FOREO device will turn off automatically.

But, there are no set guidelines for how you use your FOREO. I love gliding it around my face and nose to fully cleanse and massage my face.

I love the feeling of deep-cleaning my face (especially after removing my makeup). It has become my favorite me-time activity. I personally know the difference in my skin texture when I use a FOREO LUNA 3 Plus (vs washing my face in a normal way).

After cleansing my face, I use the same FOREO device to tighten my skin. I use to go to a skin care clinic to avail of this treatment, and it is nice to have access to anti-aging treatments in one device.

Below are the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus Treatments:

Full Facial Toning – improves overall facial contour

Targeted Eye Treatment – targets eye contour and signs of aging in the eye area

Laugh Line Treatment – targets laugh line to improve appearance in the lip area

Forehead Soothing and Lifting – targets the forehead for a tone, youthful-looking skin

Neck Treatment – improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by repeatedly looking down

I love that FOREO covers all areas where the signs of aging are visibly seen.

After washing and drying my face, I apply the FOREO SERUM SERUM SERUM and choose a facial treatment via the FOREO App. It is recommended to use the FOREO SERUM SERUM SERUM to make the most of the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus treatment. Its micro-capsule-infused formula ensures that it is deeply penetrated into the skin. I simply follow the instructions in the app (most of the treatments are less than 5 minutes) and enjoy the facial treatment.

The Verdict: FOREO LUNA 3 Plus

For someone who has been living a minimalist lifestyle, I make sure that I only purchase items that would really add value to my life, and can last for years. FOREO is a trusted skincare brand, and I love that the new FOREO LUNA 3 Plus serves as a 2-in-1 device. It is compact, easy to use, and maintain.

The soft silicone bristles do not need replacement and are also easy to use and care for; while the battery life can last up to 125 uses (it is rechargeable). When buying new products, appliances, or devices, I always consider the maintenance of the product. I love that FOREO is simple and uncomplicated.

I am honestly not expecting to have the smoothest mochi skin after using the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus. But I know that my skin feels tighter and brighter after consistently using the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus. I still get occasional breakouts, but they easily dry up, and my skin looks clearer and brighter.

I also notice that my skincare products are easily absorbed by my skin. My skin feels tight and bright especially after getting enough sleep at night. Even after wearing makeup, my skin doesn’t feel or look tired. I can easily relax my skin by deep-cleaning with FOREO LUNA 3 Plus and enjoying a Full Facial Toning Treatment.

I will be turning a year older again next month, and I want to make sure I invest in my skin and body (and fight gravity). The goal is to look younger than my real age and to feel my best every day. The FOREO LUNA 3 Plus is one of my favorite skincare investments and is something that I would recommend to people who need a good skincare/beauty tool.

It is a little luxury I can take anywhere for a full facial treatment.
