The Swedish gadget that can clear up your skin in 60 seconds

In association with

Foreo’s LUNA 3 smart facial cleaner will revolutionise your post-workout regime

As modern life gets busier, it’s more important than ever to take the time to look after yourself. Juggling deadlines, dinner dates and workout classes can prove daunting but, thanks to Swedish brand Foreo, injecting some luxury into your routine just got that much smarter.

The LUNA 3 is the device-connected T-Sonic facial cleansing brush that’s disrupting the beauty industry – the first of its kind to combine app-controlled deep cleansing with a firming massage system, leaving you with facial-style results at the touch of a button.

Designed to diminish fine lines and other signs of ageing, the two-in-one LUNA 3 cleanser and massager will leave your skin looking glowy and vibrant, keeping signs of daily wear and tear at bay. It’s controlled via the Foreo app, which ensures ease of use when tailor-making your skincare routine. It’s like having a spa treatment in your handbag, with the dermatological results to prove it.

Foreo recommends that skincare-savvy users massage the face using a facial cleanser of choice for one minute with the LUNA 3 after exercise or physical activity, in order to cleanse the skin of sweat, dirt and dead skin cells, leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated.

If you’re someone who finds stringent skincare routines tiresome, this is the setup for you: not only does the deep-clean last only 60 seconds, it needn’t be performed every day for results – you can use it as often or as little as you like. If you are someone who luxuriates in your daily routine, the LUNA 3’s gentle massaging motion means it’s suitable for everyday use too.

Its ultra-soft silicone bristles work at a rate of 8,000 transdermal sonic beats per minute to massage and cleanse the face, leave you feeling hydrated and toned. Encased in a sleek, pastel-coloured shell that fits in the palm of your hand, it slots neatly in handbags and gym bags alike, for the ultimate in ultraportable beauty treatments.

I’ve been using my LUNA 3 with the Foreo app, and it’s made my combination skin feel completely rejuvenated. While blitzing away toxins, the pulsating massage is soothing, and my skin looks – and feels – smoother, brighter and healthier than ever.

I was surprised how quickly the LUNA 3 became an essential part of my self-care toolkit – with the necessary versatility for such a task. While it’s the perfect after-exercise, endorphin-high treat, giving me a glowing visage to match that post-workout buzz, it can also revive my dull-looking skin after a day in the office. And it’s a great addition to your pamper kit, leaving you feeling polished before a big event or night out.

Unlike many others of its kind, the silicon brush head literally never needs changing – saving you the faff of having to keep re-ordering and installing new heads. And if you’re worried about clunky chargers cluttering up your bathroom counter, you needn’t: LUNA 3 boasts an impressive battery life, with 650 uses on a single charge. Perfect for those often on the move.

Another joy of LUNA 3’s sophisticated system is that you can cater exactly to your dermatological needs; with 16 adjustable speeds, you can give your skin as light or deep a clean as it needs. I prefer a gentler massage in the morning and a more rigorous cleanse after exercise or a day in the city, but early birds might prefer a more energetic morning refresher. Tailor-made skincare at the touch of a button.

If you want to make dull, tired-looking skin a thing of the past, the LUNA 3 is for you. It’s an everyday, transportable luxury that’ll leave your skin looking the healthiest it ever has – and you feeling better than ever.

The LUNA 3 is available to buy from Look Fantastic and Harrods.
