We Tried The Foreo Luna 3 for Three Different Skin TypesHere's what Happened

Beyond the cleansing benefits, the Foreo can also be used as a non-invasive anti-aging treatment. When connected to an app on your phone via Bluetooth, it’s possible to select between four different face and neck massages developed to firm and tighten the skin. Plus, the regular exfoliation achieved by the silicone brush allows your skincare products to better penetrate the epidermis to reach deeper into the skin (and become more effective!!!).

With a long list of supposed benefits, we decided it was officially time to give Chrissy Teigen’s skincare hack a try. To test out the Luna 3, two other women and I (each of us with a different skin type) incorporated the facial brush into our routines for a week. Read on to hear about our experiences—and if the devices helped us achieve a Chrissy Teigen-like glow.

Luna 3 for Normal Skin

“My nighttime skincare routine can be pretty lengthy, especially if I’m removing a full face of makeup. I thought the exfoliating side of the Luna 3 did a great job speeding up my cleansing process. I often worry that if I over exfoliate my skin will get too dry, but the bristles on my Luna 3 are so soft and gentle that I could use it every night without an issue.

My favorite feature, though, was the face massager because it made my jaw line look like I got an instant face lift. I’ve had microcurrent facials before and love them, but I’m not crazy about how much they typically cost; the Luna 3 gave very similar results. I will definitely continue to use the face massager— especially in the morning because I loved the way it perked my skin up.”—Allison Widmer, Meredith Affiliate Marketing Manager

“As someone with sensitive and acne-prone skin, I’m always wary of trying new skincare tools in fear of causing even more irritation on my skin. I’d heard great things about Foreo, but didn’t think my skin could handle it—until I found out the brand had designed a gentler brush specifically for sensitive skin.

The first time I used the Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin, I was happy about two things. First, the silicone bristles and vibrations were gentle enough that it didn’t aggravate my skin (which already had a couple breakouts and dry patches —the joy!), and second, it was the first time in a while that my skin actually felt squeaky-clean after washing my face. My face also seemed brighter and more awake, with less fine lines visible immediately after use—presumably thanks to the pulsations.

Admittedly, it took awhile for me to get used to only controlling the device through the Bluetooth-connected app. I’d personally prefer to be able to adjust settings on the Luna 3 without having my phone next to the bathroom sink (and getting all wet), but I do appreciate how high-tech the Foreo system is designed to be. And while I didn’t notice an immediate difference in my skin’s texture, it’s safe to assume that (like with any good skincare product) it takes consistent use and patience to see a real change in your skin after starting a new regimen.” —Chelsey Hamilton, Meredith Ecommerce Editor
