For all this and more, check out our modification of the hottest beauty drops you need on your radar.
FOREO Luna 4
When FOREO launched the first LUNA back in 2013, it had a difficult task. The brand had to educate the consumer to replace the traditional (and free) manual method of facial cleansing with this hi-tech alternative. While your fingers can do a great job in the morning and evening routine, it has nothing on the facial cleanser which has silicone contact points and deep cleansing modes which not only are more thorough but increase circulation and encourage production. of collagen at the same time.
LUNA 4 – as the name suggests – is the latest iteration of the gadget that still boasts all the features you know and love from its predecessors but with the addition of NIR LED light, heating and microcurrent. There are a variety of modes for gentle or deep cleansing and different massage patterns that you can control via the accompanying app. When you are on the go, you will appreciate the new travel lock.
