The secret to combating wrinkles for brighter and happier skin
Puffy, saggy, and dull skin with fine lines are problems that we’ve all had to face at one point or another, and it just becomes more persistent as time goes by. Even though it’s natural, and it’s unrealistic to expect your skin to stay the same as it was when you were young, this doesn’t mean that you have to totally give up. In fact, getting your skin the proper treatment can help combat these effects and help your skin stay in better shape for much longer.
Facial Massage Techniques: Sounds Good But How Can I Do It?
Facial massages are used by skincare professionals for anti-aging and to keep your skin in optimal condition. It helps increase circulation, giving your skin a much brighter and more toned appearance — goodbye puffy baby face and hello front cover of Vogue.
But how to do these massages to yourself? It’s one thing when someone who knows what they are doing does all the work for you, but when it comes to taking on the task yourself it can be a little bit more intimidating. With little to no guidance, it’s hard to know whether or not you’re doing it right, and you might just be spending all your time massaging in vain. That’s where LUNA 3 comes in…
LUNA 3 comes complete with a massage side to help you get professional results. But the best part is that since it’s app connected, you can enjoy app guided tutorials for your facial massage techniques using the FOREO app!
All About The FOREO App Massages
Complete with four separate facial massages, targeting different areas of the face, it’s up to you whether you want to go all in or just focus on one spot. Take a look below to see what FOREO massage treatments LUNA 3 has in store:
- Eyes on the prize: This 2 minute massage treatment targets the under eye, temporal, and brow bone region and it helps depuff, brighten, and even firm the skin around your eyes. All you have to do is get the LUNA 3 massage side in place and follow the detailed instructions of the FOREO app massage.
- Nothing but neck: Targeting the skin around the neck and decolletage region, this 2 minute massage treatment helps increase circulation and gives a tightened feel and appearance to the neck.
- Contour crazy: A 4 minute massage that will have you looking like the queen of contour, except you won’t be sacrificing hours of your time for the effect. It helps drain away swelling and leaves you with the appearance of lifted cheekbones and a toned jawline.
- Mouth magic: This 2 minute massage targets the area around the mouth and jawline. If you have any fine lines around your mouth area, this is what you need. It will help tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of any wrinkles. At the same time, you’ll use it to tone up the jawline region as well.
To get started with these massages, all you’ll have to do is download the FOREO app (if you don’t already have it) for ios or for Android. Then turn on your LUNA 3 by pressing the universal button and connect it to the app via Bluetooth, and you’re all set.

Hi Trang, allow me to answer your questions in the same order:
1. We recommend you consult your physician or skincare professional before use.
2. We recommend you consult your dentist before use.
3. We recommend cleansing with LUNA 3 for 1 minute every morning and evening.
4. We recommend massaging with LUNA 3 for 1 minute every morning and evening.
5. Correct, you can cleanse and massage your skin every day. 🙂
I can’t find the massages even after the cleansing routine. There is just one basic. I have the luna 3 but it appears limited
I’m so sorry to hear you are experiencing issues with our APP. Please try updating the app and should you have any issues again please write an email to email@example.com for further assistance.
Hi. These 2 questions asked regarding thr massage function were now answered. Ihave the same question too.
1.Maximum how long for once time use M F?
2.Can use all of M F in once time use – eyes, neck, contour, mouth ?
Hello Farah, please note we recommend cleansing and massaging with LUNA 3 for 1 minute every morning and evening. Hence, we recommend not using all four treatments in a row.
Hi, I am a bit confused. You recommend massaging with LUNA 3 for 1 minute, but the suggested treatments last 2-4 minutes. How do we use them? And why can we not use all four treatments in a row, as you answered above? Thank you kindly for the explanations 🙂
Thank you so much, Delia, for sharing this! We are currently working on fixing this information in our User Manuel for Luna 3.
Hence, you should use the massage treatment equivalent on how long the specific treatment is. You are unable to use massage treatments in a row since we don’t recommend it as it can be too much and too harsh for your skin.
Can I using contour message everyday, but it is 4 minute and u recommend
Message just 1 minute
So i dont understand how many times a week can i using contour message for 4 minutes
Hey Alia, you can use the massage treatment once a day in the equivalent time on how long the treatment is in the APP. We are working on correct this in the user Manuel.
Hello foreo darlings !
I was wondering if the neck massage had long term effects ? I have a not so elegant double chin and would like to know if the foreo massage could help reduce it over time ?
Hello darling! Yes, like any massage or exercise you need to persistent and still continue to work on yourself even after you see the results.
Hello,excuse me My foreo 3 plus can’t use microcurrent treatments because it can’t download treatment how to do ???
Hi Mart, please make sure your internet connection is really strong. This issue often happens when the internet is not strong.
Should I apply facial products before or after the massage treatments?
Hi Kiwi, The beauty of the massage mode is that you can apply the products beforehand and massage them in the massage mode of your Luna! Good news is apart from being hygienic and enhancing the experience, the active ingredients can be absorbed in more effectively! Enjoy
I can not do the contour masagges. The app says downloading the massage, and I am pretty disappointed.
Hi Cristina! Sorry to hear that but I would recommend that you are connected to the WIFI when using the App and this should be resolved. Please if you have any issues then please contact our customer care team who can assist you further! Hope that helps
I have a rosacea, so I purchased Luna 3 in purple color for sensitive skin.
Is it going to be ok for me?
Hi Kama, Thank you for your post! Yes you have chosen the most suitable device for you skin type so please take your time and slowly incorporate the device in your skin care routine. Good luck and enjoy!
This sounds great. Can this type of massage be applied to other parts of the body?
Dear Altona, Thank you for message! These are designed for the face only so we recommend this only for the face. I hope this helps 🙂
Can i use serum creme before using massage foreo luna 3?
Absolutely Imelda, This will help as a massage medium for smooth gliding when performing the massage treatments 🙂
I’m torn between the regular-sized Luna 3 and the mini Luna 3.
I’ve been told that the mini has sensitive skin bristles on the front side and oily skin bristles on the back. (Is this true?)
However it doesn’t have the massage function.
If I have oily skin that’s also sensitive, which would benefit me more? The massage function or the mini with bristles for both oily and sensitive skin? Because my t-zone is oilier I’m thinking that I would use the oily side for t-zone and sensitive side for cheeks which get red easily.
However, I don’t want to miss out on the massage function. Short of owning both, which device would you say would benefit me the most?
Hi Olivia, Aww why can’t our skin just be perfect! I would recommend you take the online skin test and find out https://www.foreo.com/luna-2?v=1255 (just scroll down the page and begin the test) personally we would recommend for such skin types a Luna that is has the correct silicone touch points for your skin type so maybe the Luna 3 mini wouldn’t be best suited. I hope this helps 🙂
Hello! Can I use sunflower oil prior the massage? Thanks
Hi Novie! We would recommend that you refrain from using heavy oil content products with your Luna as this may damage the silicone over time. Besides surely Sunflower oil would be best to use to fry some chips!
Hello, I would like to ask where can I buy this Foreo Luna 3 here in Qatar?
Hi Hope, Good news! You can buy directly from us as we ship to your country 🙂 foreo.com
can this tool be used to apply night cream or massage creams on the face?
Yes! You can use the LUNA 3’s massage mode to help massage the cream into your skin whilst getting the benefits of the T-sonic pulsations that the Luna 3 has to offer!
I bought my foreo luna 3 last May. Recently, I brought the device to a highland resort for holiday and the silicone (the back part – for massage) has expanded. It’s not under warranty so I can’t get it fixed. I’m so disappointed.
I’m really sorry to hear this. I would kindly ask you to send an email to our customer care team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will help you further. Thank you! 🙂
Hi there, I haven’t bought one yet but I thinking about Lune 3 anti-age and massage function.
Could you please tell me about these functions?
1) for the message model, is it the Fereo Luna 3 will working OR we just follow the app but the machine is not working?
2) could you tell me more about Anti-age function. How it work?
Thank you very much!
Dear Florance, the LUNA 3 has different massage functions for different areas so even the novice can perform salon like care to their face. If you need any further information I would recommend looking on foreo.com to see the LUNA 3 in action!
Hi there. There is a problem with the app. I cannot access any massage programmes. It says to push the power button for 5 seconds to connect to the app. But as soon as I do that it automatically starts the cleaning programme, not through the app though. The app is just dead, the same screen saying “Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds” stays on forever. And then that’s it, there’s no further option. There is no update to the app, nothing for me to do there. It just doesn’t work. Disappointing and frustrating that for a product that costs 200€ this is what you offer as support. Basically renders the massage features useless.
Dear Ramona, Thank you for your post and understandably how frustrating this is! However, we are happy to see that you are in contact with our Customer Care Team member Ana and we hope to get this resolved for you.
Mám ten samý problém. Připlatila jsem si za Luna 3 kvůli masážím. Aplikace píše NĚCO SE POKAZILO. ZKUSTE TO POZDĚJI. Mohla jsem koupit levnější bez masáže, když stejně nefungují. Škoda, že jsem na tyto recenze nepřišla před koupí. Těšila jsem se až Luna 3 dorazí a teď jsem akorát naštvaná a smutná.
Hi there! We are very sorry to hear about the issue with the application. Please contact Foreo Customer Care so our agents can help you resolve it as soon as possible.
Can I use Luna 3 massage programs with rentinol or will damage the silicone?
Hi there! In regards to your kind inquiry, I would like to inform you that we suggest avoiding the usage of oily-based, clay-based, silicone-based or grainy cleansers, exfoliators or scrubs, as they may damage the LUNA’s soft silicone touch-points and never to use cleaning products containing alcohol, petrol or acetone, as they may irritate the skin.
We also recommend not using any cleansers that contain Silicone ingredients as this can also be quite damaging to the silicone on the device. 🙂
Do you need to use a serum/cream/moisturizer with the massaging function on the Foreo, Luna 3? What should I use and what ingredients should I stay away from?
Hi Anne, we recommend using a massage medium or serum when performing the massage treatments to get the full benefit. In regards to your kind inquiry, I would like to inform you that we suggest avoiding the usage of oily-based, clay-based, silicone-based or grainy cleansers, exfoliators or scrubs, as they may damage the LUNA’s soft silicone touch-points and never to use cleaning products containing alcohol, petrol or acetone, as they may irritate the skin.

Hi there I just purchased the ufo and luna 3 love them both I also bought the foreo serum. Can you use that several under your eyes when using the massage onluna 3?
Also the serum in the masks i bought for the ufo there is so much left after you use the mask is it ok to apply rest of serum after the mask and do it again?
Is there a limit on when yoi can use the ufo?
Dear Fiona, Thank you for your post and glad to hear that you are enjoying your devices 🙂 When performing the massage treatments you can use the Serum Serum Serum for the Eyes on the Prize Treatment as this is designed for the use alongside the LUNA 3.
With the extra Serum that is in the mask packets, you are free to add this back to the mask and perform the treatment again or if you wish you can apply the serum to neck and decolletage area with your fingers and then use upwards sweeping motions so the skin in that area can be benefit from the active ingredients in the serum. 🙂
The good news is that your UFO can be used daily as part of your routine so morning and evening along with your choice of masks. We hope this helps and if you need any further assistance then please feel free to get in touch with our Customer Care Team of FOREO.COM who would be happy to assist you further.
Is the MF pregnancy safe? If so, how often can we use it?
Hi Jessica! Please note that it is generally safe to use LUNA 3 in pregnancy, but it should be comfortable – if you experience discomfort, discontinue use
immediately and consult a physician. We would like to suggest to talk with your doctor before indulging in any spa or facial treatments during pregnancy, just to make sure. Hope this helps! Best regards 🙂
Can i use foreo luna mini 3 when having a braces? And is luna mini 3 connected to the app is a genuine one.
Hello there, thank you for deciding to comment on this article. Please note that our LUNA™ Mini 3 is completely safe to use even if you have braces. Enjoy using it and make sure you connect it to the app to excerpt countless options we have prepared for you. Kind regards 🙂
I bought the foreo luna 3. I am able to use the cleansing bit but massage” 3 types” which I cannot find.
Also there is no manual to demonstrate how to use the massage function, inside the pack. I have brought it from boots uk
Dear Sue, don’t worry, the massages are in the app – they’re just a little hidden! 😉 To find them, press the START button next to your Luna™ 3. The next screen displayed is a woman cleansing her face, and with another grey START bar on the bottom of the page. Right above this START bar, there’ll be a ‘go to massage treatments’ option. Just click on that, and you’ll find the Massage mode of the Luna™ 3. I hope this helped! Let me know if there is any other question I could answer for you! Best regards 😀
