LUNA mini 3 is out and here’s what we can tell you right off the bat.

The personalized smart skincare device for anyone who’s looking for a great cleanse and amazing skin is finally out! It’s specifically designed with the intention of being the new go-to gym bag must have. The compact design is what makes it easy to bring with you for cleansing on the go. However, this doesn’t mean that it can only be used by our active lifestyle fans; LUNA mini 3 works for everyone. 


What’s The Big Deal And How Is It Different From LUNA mini 2?

In comparison to other skincare devices, LUNA mini 3 is worlds away. But if we’re doing a side-by-side of LUNA mini 2, then the main differences that you might notice are the larger brush head, and the way softer, longer bristles.In addition to this, there is a special Glow boost mode, which is a 30 second cleansing system, to make the most out of your gym skincare routine in the least amount of time. 

What really sets it apart from its predecessor, is the fact that you can connect it to your smartphone and set your very own cleansing preferences that work best for you.


Sounds Great, But How Does It Work?

Step one will be to unpack your LUNA mini 3 and try to turn it on by pressing the universal button. You might have to charge it before getting started, especially if you want to use it for as long as possible without having to charge it again!

The first time ever using your LUNA mini 3, you’ll have to register your device by activating Bluetooth on your smartphone, and then pressing the button on the device to sync it to the FOREO app and set up your initial cleansing preference. After that, you’ll be able to use the device either with or without the app, it’s completely your choice. 

Make sure your face is make-up free and dampen your skin. Then, after applying your favorite cleanser to LUNA mini 3, you can turn it on by clicking the universal button for a regular cleanse (or try out the special glow boost mode by clicking that same button quickly twice).

To get the most out of your cleanse, make sure to use circular motions on the cheek and forehead area, and an up and down gliding motion on your nose. 

When you’re done, you can turn off the device by holding down the button for 3 seconds. Keep in mind that if you were using glow boost mode the device will automatically turn off when finished. Now all you have to do is rinse your face, pat it dry, and continue with your skincare as you usually would. 


Caring For My LUNA mini 3

Now that you know how to use it, you should probably also know how to care for it. LUNA mini 3 is a sturdy little device, but if you really want to make sure you’re keeping it in optimal condition then there are a couple rules you should abide by:

  • Try to stay away from clay based cleansers. But if you really love using them, then make sure you wash your LUNA thoroughly afterwards; the clay can cause damage to the silicone bristles which means you won’t be getting the best clean each time. To keep your LUNA working for as long as possible, take a look at which cleansers work best with your silicone skincare device.
  • Even though LUNA mini 3 is totally waterproof, it isn’t immune to typical problems that come with moist and damp environments (AKA mold). Make sure to keep it in a dry area, and remember to pat it dry after each use.


Here’s What We Love About It

Glow Boost! I think almost everyone in the office that tried LUNA mini 3 fell in love with the glow boost mode. Why? Because it’s so quick but it still gives you that same smooth feel and glow as when you use it regularly. It’s great to know that your skincare doesn’t have to suffer just because you’re running a little short on time. Another great thing about LUNA mini 3 is that you can take it with you… literally anywhere. Which is great if you need a little confidence boost after the gym, for example. 

All in all we really enjoyed everything this new LUNA had to offer, and we would love to hear what you have to say about it as well? Have you already tried out LUNA mini 3? If so, what did you think of the latest in smart skincare?
