Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

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.

Click through to read my thoughts and whether this facial cleansing brush is right for you!

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.

Review:

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.

Conclusion:

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. Interesting colors! I think light brown would work really well for me.

  2. I'd love to try the smudge brush!

  3. My sons and I used to make bathbombs together all the time... with jojoba beads inside. I have the round molds from Soap Queen still in storage... I miss it but find I never have the time anymore. This has reminded me that I need to do them again, they made awesome gifts for my kids teachers and great presents for friends and family. Plus the boys loved the different colors :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. I'll doublecheck this week since I believe Supernova is supposed to be a dupe for NARS Anna. I'm not sure if Milky Way will match anything (since I think it's their take on MAC Soar)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Love this color! I love your nails too

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd love to go to The Makeup Show. I've been to IMATS several times but I think that Makeup Show is better for a blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I've never used a product like this on my brows. My brow game needs help, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I haven't tried that NARS corrector, but everyone seems to like it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Your lips are perfect. I like Enzyme best but you're right that it's not the best for you.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I own a bunch of loose shadows.. but you're right, I don't use them often because I don't know what I'm doing! Most often, I use ELF Mist and Set or their mixing medium. This is a great post! I'm definitely going to experiment more with a black base after seeing these swatches!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have a similar electronic foot file and cannot live without it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Don't care or staining - but those liners look nicely pigmented!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ooh I love a good brow product! These look great

    ReplyDelete
  14. I haven't tried any RT brushes yet, and I've been drooling at the look of these (especially the rose gold) since they came out. I do use cream contour when I bother to do it so that brush sounds quite unique to me. I also need a stippling brush. Hmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  15. How exciting that you met Sam and Nic! The Bold Metals brushes look awesome. They are definitely on my wishlist, especially the Pointed Crease Brush.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I want to try the eyeliner and brow brushes

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would never actually wear it, but the white is pretty awesome! I love Coralation and Enzyme!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a great way to add some dazzle to your usual palette.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think it's so worth the $60 price tag!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That looks stunning over black and I LOVE the name!

    ReplyDelete
  21. WOW that really does look like turquoise! Excellent job!

    ReplyDelete
  22. it's a regular polish, no glitter in the formula :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Few of us need a Kardashian contour, but a little shading and highlight can help us make the best of our features. This looks like a great little palette to play with!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Eeeek! I can't wait to see you again! I just got my press pass last week. It's gonna be nice to not be surrounded by fangirls. 💖💖💖

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a great palette! I've never heard of this brand before, but it looks good to me!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I need this so bad. My nails got major damage from Shellac rounds.

    ReplyDelete
  27. lots and lots of cuticle oil and cuticle butter. Moisturized nails grow so much better!

    ReplyDelete
  28. The lightest shade would be perfect for me!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love Batalash (particularly Samantha!). I'd buy this just because it's a collab with her. It's a bonus the shades are so pretty!

    I'm glad you decided to give KMS Cosmetics a try and I'm so happy that you like the Pout Perfectors :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh I really like Anita. That's a great shade.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love charmed! Both of these would be so gorgeous for Spring/Summer!! I don't think any foileds live in my collection yet! AGH!

    ReplyDelete
  33. They put together a great array of colors in this palette.

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG it loops behind the ears? Genius! I haven't tried a mask yet. I had gotten one with an ingredient from snails and I couldn't bring myself to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. GORGEOUS!!!! One of my favorite Color Club shades!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Whenever I get the chance to go to San Francisco, I always make a point of stopping into Daiso and looking at the cheap, exotic stuff. Wish we had them here in the Boston area. BTW, I still haven't tried a sheet mask. In fact, I've had a box of them from Hada Labo Tokyo for several months that I still haven't tried.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I LOVE wand eyeshadow! Forever and a day ago I used to have one from Mark (avon) and it was the prettiest lilac metallic. I wore it EVERYWHERE! mostly because it was so convenient and easy to apply!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Big Bang Theory is the perfect Fall shade!

    ReplyDelete
  39. These are just breathtakingly gorgeous! I am so impressed!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well, I'm on board with the metallic eyes, red lips (love Besame Cherry Red too!), and blue liner! I really wish boring old Boston had a makeup show :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. That's what I use :) Love them!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've been wanting to try SauceBox, and was thinking about the Etude palette, but this one looks like more fun!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Have you tried the Lush Cuticle Butter? The texture sounds similar and I wonder how this compares.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That coral is stunning- not many corals stain so that's kid of nice actually!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks for sharing your DIY cuticle oil!

    ReplyDelete
  46. These are sooo stunning and you've got some really unique shades there! I personally would never wear greens or blues unless i'm going to an event or for a special occasion but I love that seafoam green and the bright blue shade!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I tried it long ago but I remember I didn't like the scent. It was an odd lemony scent, I much prefer the Nail Butter lemongrass scent (once it's been calmed down). I also think the Lush Cuticle Butter might be a bit thicker in consistency.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have one of these and I love it! Works as well as a trip to the manicurist :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. So cute! What a great idea!
    Thank you!

  50. I'm still searching for a decent illuminator.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I hope you do an EOTD with it. It looks like a lot of fun. I have a Lorac luster... but I've never used it. Maybe you can give me some ideas! lol.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love this! I have a few tubes that I will decant because I'm on a low-buy anyway and cannot justify the RTW, thanks for all the awesome math!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I wish I was more patient, I can't be bothered. That's a sin for a beauty blogger!

    ReplyDelete

    Seems like a good buy! I haven't purchased a contouring/highlight palette mainly because I have pale skin and half of it is always way darker than I would ever wear. If they would tone it down a bit I would be more likely to buy. At least this one only has 5 shades total (as opposed to the 8+ shades palettes where 4 shades are too dark for me to use)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I've never heard of this! Now I need it too lol

    ReplyDelete
  56. Those Darling Girl Cosmetics cream shadows look SO gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm a big fan of these - I haven't tried the foot file, but I ordered a few of the regular sized files from them before. Having real crystal - and not powder coated - files is the key!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the DG Shadows and the LE highlighters

    ReplyDelete
  59. I pretty much always wear primer. Their Illuminating primer is my fave of all!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I figure each time there's a 20% off sale, I can keep collecting one each time and slowly build up a collection

    ReplyDelete
  61. yeah that teal was a little disappointing considering how good the rest of the palette is

    ReplyDelete
  62. those really enhance your lips for a 'mlbb' look, especially Glamour Queen. It's nice that they're hydrating and not sticky - perfect for a 'balm' type of day.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've tried that technique and failed, miserably. Looks great on your long nails, though!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm intrigued by the cream to powder formula! This color is super pretty looking too.

    ReplyDelete
  65. i'm still testing this but so far so good!

    ReplyDelete
  66. What about trying something like an illuminating primer to help add a glow too? I'm still waiting for these to arrive but I got a shipping notice today. Looking forward to playing with them.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lisa Marie HeathJune 1, 2018 at 4:09 PM

    Ohh that Honey Cake looks so nice and perfect for Summer

    ReplyDelete
  68. The mattes are definitely worth a look

    ReplyDelete
  69. Very pretty, never heard of the brand!

    ReplyDelete
  70. OMG, it's been forever. Hi, Mai!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I had no idea there was such a thing!! Going to look for it on Amazon right now! Thanks for the tip! :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. rachlovespenguinsJune 1, 2018 at 4:09 PM

    Creepy, yet ingenious. I kinda want to put this in my Amazon cart just to see what other strange things Amazon would start recommending for me. But at the same time I'm not sure I want to know! lol

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi Sylvia! Given that no one nominated Bumblesoaps for any of the categories, they were not included in the final voting. Their exclusion is not reflective of the quality of the series.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I got one of those glass files too, and it seems a lot gentler at filing the nails.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think they're both lovely. I have Lumiere and I do think it is similar to Anna.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I use the cover drops in the mattifying acne primer and it has a made a WORLD of difference in my face. Now that I'm using this combination with skincare that's working, I'm sure that every other foundation and primer I've used have broken me out, haha. I'm now a coverfx girl for life!

    ReplyDelete
  77. 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. :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Your swatches make me want Seductive and Play Date.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I have Mont Bleu glass files and they are amazing. The ones from their website make stunning gifts since they have so many designs with crystals.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I'm a huge fan of glass files!!! Great review.

    ReplyDelete
  81. yeah I figured that might be a deal breaker for some people, I think you could get away with a flat synthetic brush but fingers were so much better

    ReplyDelete
  82. Lisa Marie HeathJune 1, 2018 at 4:10 PM

    That primer is what I'm most interested in!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm not familiar with this brand, but I love the shade. Also, I am a cream anything fan, and the fact that this is a gel/cream to powder sounds even better for long lastingness. Sounds and looks great

    ReplyDelete
  84. That's really cool! My problem is, I'd buy them and then forget to use them and still go for all my disposable ones.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Mai, this is precisely the review I've been looking for. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I have a dream to collect all of the Audacious lippies some day, the formula is just top notch, but the price bites :) They're worth every penny though!

    ReplyDelete
  87. So many beautiful shades! KB Shimmer was my first indie polish and I still love them.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Awesome!

    Annnd--subscribed!

    ReplyDelete
  89. So many difficult choices!

    ReplyDelete
  90. These are all so pretty, KBShimmer is my favorite indie nail polish brand.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I prefer synthetic only because it is one area I can totally avoid using anything from an animal.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm a big batalash fan and I'm on the edge of whether or not I wanna get the palette. Eeeeeeeeep

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oooh Medium Brown looks like the one for me too. These look great!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love that more brands are going this route!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I swatched the Etude palette and this one and I gotta say I prefer this one. I feel like a lot of the Etude shades are a little too similar to each other

    ReplyDelete
  96. These look awesome! I want to try out the brow products.

    ReplyDelete
  97. My nails can definitely use this! They've been so bad lately.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Oh, I love giving my nails some much-needed moisture! My cuticles in particular get very chapped.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Wow, this is amazing, I'd love to try it

    ReplyDelete
  100. Thanks for doing these swatches. Very helpful!

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

    Kayla

    ReplyDelete
  102. Love the sparkles and the names! Exorcism, nightmare, jinx.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hi Honey, this actually is an OCC lip tar that I applied with a brush and since it's a liquidy product, that's probably why it looks super neat. I could post a video of myself applying the lip tar but honestly I think it's the product and brush itself that lends it so much crispness!

    ReplyDelete
  104. love the glosses they seem so thick and pigmented!

    ReplyDelete
  105. 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

    ReplyDelete
  106. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  109. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I'm loving Enigma and Cinnamon.

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

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