There are certain items that are on my ultimate lust list. well, more like my amazon wishlist, but they sit there forever, basically because I cannot convince myself to drop a wad of cash on something that seems so simple. keeping my skin clear is always a concern of mine though, so, of course I wanted to try products that so many people rave about. that being said, the Foreo Luna mini had been on my wishlist for at LEAST 6 months to a year.
Foreo took over the blogosphere not too long ago as a contender to the massively coveted Clarisonic. i, however, couldn’t convince myself to try either of them simply because of the price tag. sure, people raved about how amazing they were, but i also heard HORROR stories about how the Clarisonic can make your skin purge. ew, i’ll pass. don’t try to convince me that its good for your skin in the long run. to make a long story short (like shut up already, right?!) the Foreo is a completely different design, but you can use it as an equally coveted facial cleansing device (brush head vs rubberized surface). and people really have been loving it. but at $129 a pop, mama was not jumping the gun.
luckily, my amazon suggestions were like “hey girl, here’s a dupe for like $40.” and i was like “aww thx boo xoxo.” and i picked up this one.
It’s called the Solo Mio Sonic Facial Brush. Looks almost identical (except for a kind of different shape), but I could care less about that. I was more interested in how it worked. full disclosure: i’m in LOVE. at first, i thought i was breaking out a little, but aunt flow was also in town so that could be the case. either way. my skin has never been so soft in my life. i use it in the morning and in the evening with my CeraVe foaming facial cleanser and its so gentle, but also helps to exfoliate and clean my skin. I haven’t even really broke out since that first week of using it, even in my more hormonal weeks (thanks mother nature!) & I really love it. and the best part about it is how affordable it is. I am so glad i bought this dupe instead of spending the embarrassing amount on the Foreo brand cleanser. like BYE felicia! take your markups elsewhere.
This little baby stays charged for literally FOREVER. seriously, I charged it once when I first got it (almost two months ago) and haven’t touched it since. it has a million different vibrating speeds and two different silicone “microfinger” sides (one for gentle and one for more deep cleansing) and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. I adore it and will never stop using it.
so basically if you have been thinking about pulling the trigger on any of the Foreo line, I would say to try this one first and see if you like it. its a fraction of the cost and gets every bit of the job done.
whats your favorite facial cleanser?
Loves, Chelsea xoxo
