I have always struggled with problematic skin even after becoming an Esthetician. Growing up it was one of my biggest insecurities and I didn’t have the knowledge I do now. Only after going to Esthetician school did I realize how to take care of my skin. I have always had oily skin. Not only that, but it’s always been flaky and acne prone. Growing up I always thought I had Combination Skin because I was flaky and oily. What I didn’t realize is normally flaky skin means dehydrated and not dry. If you are wondering why your skin may be flaky, check out my blog post on dehydrated vs. dry skin.
Once I figured out why my skin was acting the way it was, I was able to treat it the correct way. I started using water-based products and exfoliating properly. Using too much exfoliation will make flaking worse and not exfoliating will result in rough thick skin that is also flaking. I found this out the hard way.
Even though I am an esthetician and I am trained on how to take care of skin, it can be hard to find the right products and routine, even for me! I’ve only just started loving my routine, so don’t be discouraged, it takes time!
I came across the brand Foreo when I was looking for a replacement for my Clarisonic. With Clarisonic, I did not like having to change the brush head every few months because of Bacteria. The fact that it had harbored bacteria grossed me out even thought I cleaned it between uses. I also didn’t like having to spend more money every few months to use it.
So what is the Foreo Mini 2?
It is also a vibrating face brush, but it’s made of silicone. The silicone helps prevent bacteria so there will be no gross build up. It also has two sides ones for a daily exfoliation and the other for a deeper exfoliation. Another perk is there are specific Foreo’s made for sensitive skin, how cool is that?
I chose to buy from Foreo for a few reasons. They have many different options of essentially the same product in different sizes for any budget, this allows for people to try the brand either because they are first time buyers or because they are on a budget. They also come in many different colors and a single charge can hold up to 3 months. I also love how you don’t have to keep buying new pieces for it, it is a one-time purchase.
The Foreo Mini 2 is in the mid-range for budget, which is one of the reasons I picked it specifically. Another reason is because I have a tiny face and hands, so I thought the Luna 2 would be too big. I have no regrets. Actually, it’s the opposite. I think this is my top purchase of 2018.
I have found all of my skincare holy grails in 2018, so that’s saying something. I know the Luna Mini 2 played a major role in changing the texture of my skin. I love my hydrating serums, but they can’t do much if they can’t penetrate the skin. The Luna gently exfoliates my skin to keep it healthy and so the products I use can actually seep into my skin and work their magic.
The Luna Mini 2 gives a light and gentle exfoliation, so now I only have to deeply exfoliate about 1 or 2 a week. For some people the Luna will give enough exfoliation, but I have a quick cell turn-over rate and use a lot of products to encourage cell turn-over, so I need an extra scrub sometimes. Before I purchased the Luna, I was exfoliating everyday with something way too harsh for everyday use and wasn’t seeing results.
Once I switched to the Luna, my skin made a huge change. Sometimes I will accidentally leave it in my boyfriend’s shower for a week and that week my skin gets congested and thick with built up skin. NO THANKS. I’m seriously considered buying a second to leave at my boyfriends because I’m that annoyed when I realize what I’ve left it an hour away.
I have been testing out this product for over 6 months, so I have been able to really test it out. I am in love with the results and think it is 100% worth the splurge if you couldn’t tell already. I highly recommend checking out the Foreo Brand because they truly have made something great. You can always check out their lower priced item and see how you like it before really investing.
If you are thinking of splurging on one skincare item, I believe it should be this. There are so many affordable skincare brands that work great. You can use them in conjunction with the Foreo to get awesome results.
