This 60-Second Face Cleansing Device Is A Game-Changer For Your Skin Care Routine

I'm so thankful the Foreo Luna Mini 2 exists, because washing your face all the time is hard enough.

We've all heard the advice time and time again: "Wash your face!" "Never go to sleep with your makeup on!"

And of course it's good advice. But let's be real: washing your face IRL does not look like it does in the commercials!

Instead of a ^photogenic water splash^, we're out here getting our PJ sleeves soaking wet, turning our eye makeup into raccoon eyes, and fumbling for the towel, blinded by cleanser bubbles.

So if you've ever thought to yourself, infomercial-style, "There's GOT to be a better way!" — I'm here to tell you there is! And it's the FOREO LUNA Mini 2, a 100% waterproof silicone face cleanser and my actual BFF.

It changed the life of this girl with acne-prone, super sensitive skin, and it just might change yours, too!

It changed the life of this girl with acne-prone, super sensitive skin, and it just might change yours, too!

Let's break down the features of this bad boy:

It's made of nonporous silicone (which deters bacteria buildup, unlike traditional brushes) and is covered with soft 'n' bendy touchpoints (that won't irritate your skin).

There are three different sizes of silicone touch-points so you can customize exactly what your skin needs, whether you have dry, oily, acne-prone, or aging skin.The narrower tip is perfect for cleaning every nook and cranny of your face, getting into the creases on the side of your nose you blended your concealer so carefully into in the morning.And did I mention it's TOTALLY WATERPROOF?! Yep, you can use this in the shower and not worry about anything happening to it at all!

And did I mention it's TOTALLY WATERPROOF?! Yep, you can use this in the shower and not worry about anything happening to it at all!

It's powered by ~T-Sonic pulses~ (basically a fancy term meaning "it vibrates"), which help clean below the surface of your skin, gently exfoliating and clearing pores *before* clogs turn into breakouts.

It has eight different vibration intensities, which you can control with the little +/- buttons on each side of the power button. I personally keep mine on a lower setting so I don't overly irritate my delicate skin (she loves to throw a tantrum), and then do a higher-level vibration for a deeper exfoliation once a week.

Here's how it works: apply cleanser directly to your face (I love and stan for Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing and Makeup Remover), wet the LUNA, and move it around your face in circular motions.

Throughout the 60-second process, the light on the bottom will flash and the whole thing will buzz, telling you to move the LUNA to another part of your face — from one cheek/side of your chin to the other, then your nose, and then your forehead.

It removes up to 99.5% of dirt and oil — and leaves your face free of ANY makeup residue. I wear a full face every day, and I am consistently amazed by the results of this tool.

Then when the 60 seconds are over, I rinse my face and apply my other products (toner, eye cream, and moisturizer). That's it!!

Just clean the LUNA itself with soap and water or spritz it with their cleansing spray to remove all residue and oil.

Look, I'm not new to face cleansing machines — I had a Clarisonic Mia, which I tried for long stretches of time over several years, but just never fell in love with.

*None* of the brush heads were soft enough to use on my sensitive skin every day. And whenever I tried to use it for a weekly exfoliation, more often than not the battery would have run out from just sitting in my drawer. The most annoying part? Buying super expensive replacement heads.

But unlike the Clarisonic, this beauty stays charged for 300 uses (using it twice a day, that's up to five months!), and requires 0.0 replacement heads. Ever!

At $139, it's not exactly ~inexpensive~, but there are no hidden extra costs down the road. You're spending this one chunk now, but you're set for years to come!And with the charge that lasts and lasts, it's perfect for tossing in your suitcase and bringing on vacation — no worrying that it'll die in the middle of your trip.

I'm not the only one who looooves their Luna: this baby has hundreds of stellar reviews on both Amazon *and* Sephora:

"I love this product! I've always had dry skin on my forehead that no amount of moisturizer, masks, or washes could get rid of. And within one wash this issue had disappeared and my skin was smoother. I have also noticed that the sebaceous filaments on my nose and chin are disappearing. It is gentle enough to use twice a day but does a wonderful job of exfoliating." —Audra"I have always eyed the Clarisonic but could never get myself to buy one. Got given a Sephora gift card for Christmas and decided I was gonna invest in a skin care tool. The lady in the skincare section convinced me to get the Luna Mini 2 instead of the Clarisonic (gentler on the skin). After the first use my skin was so much softer and more glow-y. Fast forward a month and I have never seen my skin look so nice. Completely cleared up my acne and blackheads. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for better skin!" —Kendra143"So many people raved about the Foreo products and I finally got my hands on it. I have very sensitive skin and retinol products are really uncomfortable for me to use, but I do love the brightening effect that exfoliation gives my skin. This facial brush is providing me with a gentle exfoliation and leaves my skin soft and clear. I love this device! The shape is perfect for getting in around my nose and all. I now understand why people have gone gaga over this product. It's a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for." —BK

And for me, it has *so* been worth it. My skin feels softer and (with the help of all my favorite products) clearer than ever.

The acne scars on my cheeks from a series of breakouts are fading fast, and I get new acre very rarely — they're more like a pimple here and there occasionally when I have to fly somewhere (curse you, dry airplanes) or get stressed or.... who even knows why my skin freaks out sometimes. Never thought I'd ever put a no-makeup selfie on the internet, but that's how much I love this thing.

I'm a stickler for doing my full skincare routine (even after a glass of wine or four), and honestly this product makes getting through it and *never ever skipping washing my face* so much easier.
