FOREO LUNA 2 FOR MEN
Clean your face and reduce shaver burn through the power of sound
The Foreo Luna 2 for Men ($249, foreo.com) is a palmsized facial brush designed to cleanse, tone and prep skin for shaving. It has textured dual sides: one for cleansing, one for anti-ageing. The brush is small but not slippery when wet, thanks to an easy-grip antibacterial silicone covering. Foreo claims the brush has 450 uses per charge, and while we haven’t been using it that long, ours is still going strong after a month’s use.
There are 12 levels of intensity, depending on individual skin needs. We used the brush morning and night, applying a cleanser to our face then moving the brush in small circles over our skin for one minute as instructed. It was clear from the first use that Foreo’s T-Sonic tech (8,000 pulsations per minute) removed more dirt, oil and dead skin than a cleanser alone, leaving skin smoother and more vibrant. That cleansing action also had a ‘lifting’ effect on facial hairs, leading to less razor burn than usual.
The brush’s anti-ageing mode uses lower-frequency pulsations to tone fine lines, and can be massaged over skin after moisturising to boost its effectiveness. Although our fine lines are still present, we noticed after a few uses that our skin felt better toned. Ultimately, the Foreo Luna 2 for Men is a nifty facial brush for perking up dull, slack skin, pre- and post-shave, especially during the drier winter months. THE FINAL WORD Foreo’s facial brush delivers a deeper cleanse and preps skin for rash-free shaving.
