Current Obsession: Foreo Luna Mini

Current Obsession: Foreo LUNA Mini(Source: Foreo)One of the biggest misconceptions my friends have about me working in the beauty industry is that I get facials on a weekly, if not daily, basis. Sorry to burst the bubbles of all of my friends, but the last time I had a facial, it was a different season. But that doesn't mean that I can't fake it at home. And thanks to my new favorite handheld facial cleansing device, I can do just that.

The Foreo has been stirring up the beauty world overseas for awhile now, and finally, those of us with skincare obsessions are able to experience what the fuss is all about here in the US. I got my hands on the Foreo Luna mini ($139) and can't seem to put the thing down. The Luna is the handheld little sister of the full-size Luna, which is a pulsating silicone device geared toward cleansing the face and unclogging pores.

Made from medical-grade silicone, the Luna mini has a three-zone cleansing brush (little plastic bristles that are soft but sturdy when cleaning), with each zone targeting sensitive skin, oily skin and normal skin. It's 100 percent waterproof and can be taken in the shower, the gym bag, the sink—wherever you need it to go. Plus, with an amazingly long charge life (you can get 300 uses from one charge!), the Luna mini is simple and fast to use. Never a hassle.

Ever since I've gotten my hands on the Luna mini, my skincare routine has been simplified beyond belief. I'm able to lather up my face with my favorite cleanser, press a button and the Luna does the rest. With the one minute or three minute timed cleansing period, I literally let the device do its thing. Overall my skin is softer, smoother and most importantly, is never red or irritated after using the tool. I've used other cleansing tools like this and have always seemed to leave the shower with a redder face than when I went in. But the Luna mini is gentle on my skin and leaves me feeling refreshed and clean, just like I had a facial.
