Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush Review

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to share my thoughts on the Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush. I've talked about skincare before on the blog but this is the first mention of any sort of skincare device. 

I first heard about Foreo when they launched their LUNA cleansing brush, especially since it seemed like a great alternative to the Clarisonic facial cleansing brush (which was dominating the skincare device scene). The Foreo LUNA intrigued me because it didn't deal with a brush/bristles but with silicone points instead. Of course, the price was too much for me to afford on a graduate student budget so I admired from afar. 

Later on they launched the LUNA Play, a mini version of the full size but I was not interested in a device that only had 100 uses for $39.00. Finally, they launched their Luna Play Plus which is a miniaturized version of their full size LUNA cleansing brushes and a better version of the LUNA Play. Combine it with the ULTA 20% off sale and I picked up the Luna Play Plus.

Where to Purchase: The LUNA Play Plus is $49.00 and is available at Foreo, Nordstom, and ULTA.

How to Use: There's an on/off button on the back. On the bottom of the device is the battery cover that you unscrew when you need to replace the battery.


Foreo says:
  • The tiny but mighty sonic face cleanser. The Foreo LUNA play plus includes all the advantages of the LUNA play, plus a bigger brush head, softer bristles and a replaceable battery. Using your hands or harsh bristled brushes to cleanse your face is fast going out of fashion. Foreo not only brings high-tech into skincare, but their devices can go wherever you go.
I've been using this once or twice a day (mostly twice a day) for over a month now and I noticed an improvement in my skin texture with it feeling softer/smoother and a reduction in clogged pores/congestion around my nose. I would avoid using this over active acne as that can be quite irritating. It works excellently for cleansing my skin. This provides a gentle physical exfoliation over time and would be excellent way to supplement your chemical exfoliation but I wouldn't rely on this being your main means of exfoliation. 

I appreciate that I don't have to worry about replacing any brush heads so it's more cost-effective and less wasteful. The silicone is quick drying and not porous so it helps resist bacteria build up. I was worried about the shape but the silicone nubs manage to fit into crevices like around my nose well. It's described as tiny but mighty and I have to agree. It's extremely travel-friendly due to its size and waterproof so you can use it in the shower but I prefer to use it at the sink to avoid wasting water.

You do have to avoid using clay, silicone, or grainy cleanser with the Foreo otherwise you can damage the silicone. I use it with the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser and have had no problems with it. 

The only con I have is that there isn't a timer in the device so you do have to keep track of how long a minute is. They do recommend not using it for longer than three minutes but you'll still have to keep time.


If you're looking for a new facial cleansing device, I would highly recommend the Luna Play Plus. It may be small but it's a good introduction to skincare devices at a reasonable price compared to other brands!

Do you use any facial cleansing brushes? What's your favorite?

  1. Congrats on 1,000,000 views! Wow!!!

    I'm surprised to hear you didn't pick up a Smitten for yourself! It's very kind of you to give one away. :)

  2. I have been actually thinking of getting this and switching over from my clarisonic. Great review :)


  3. Love the sparkles and the names! Exorcism, nightmare, jinx.

  4. love the glosses they seem so thick and pigmented!

  5. I like so much about these but the contour colour is a bit too tan and warm for me. I'm really digging the highlight tone, tho. It's perfect for days when I want additional lift and light and am not in the mood for shimmah. :D

  6. I have a cooler/pink undertone, so these might not be fore me, but I've heard great things about their applicator sponge that make me want to try it. Maybe they'll come out with a few more colors that compliment us pale pink folk.

  7. They are both gorgeous, but Anita speaks to me more.

  8. Loving Vitamin Sea, it's so mermaidy! A great color for summer :)

  9. I've picked up a few of these but haven't tried them yet. I'll have to find a brush that works. I just can't handle using my fingers to apply makeup.

  10. I'm loving Enigma and Cinnamon.

  11. This is very pretty. I can't see myself pulling it off on my short nails.

  12. That's awesome that this worked! I am not using anything at the moment but when I do I use a brow gel.
