Forget face wipes: Get proper skincare on the go with this tiny beauty gadget

The FOREO LUNA mini 3 is the perfect, portable antidote to tired skin

Let’s be honest, modern life is all about being on the go. Whether we’re heading to a gym session, work conference or long weekend in the countryside, we’re always dashing out somewhere. And while this can be enriching in its own way, that always-on lifestyle does not make for a happy complexion.

Thank goodness, then, for the only ultraportable smart cleansing device, the FOREO LUNA mini 3, designed specifically to take care of skin on the go. The app-connected device is revolutionising the way women take care of their skin post-workout – or just as part of a healthy lifestyle. In FOREO’s clinical trials, T-SonicTM pulsations blitzed away 99.5% of sweat, dead cells and toxins, leaving skin looking and feeling refreshed, toned and radiant.

Its compact size – the LUNA mini 3 facial massager and cleanser sits comfortably in the palm of my hand – and near-imperceptible weight means it can be slipped unnoticed into any gym bag. The same applies for weekend holdalls and carry-on luggage – die-hard fans might even end up squeezing the device into a clutch bag for a fancy dinner or night out. I wouldn’t blame you.

Time-conscious, pamper-hungry users will revel in the cleansing device’s all-new Glow Boost mode, which lets you cleanse, massage and tone your world-weary complexion in 30 seconds flat. This leaves you with spa-worthy radiance in less time than it takes to make a coffee. Forget the lengthy pantomime of a foot spa or nightly bubble bath, everyday luxury just got a bit more realistic…

One of the most reassuring things about the device is its gentleness. We’re taught from a young age to pat – not rub – our faces dry after washing, to prevent wear, tear and wrinkles. Swedish beauty-tech brand FOREO brings this logic into the 21st century, with its ultra-soft pulsating touchpoints gently expelling any dirt and oil, leaving you feeling invigorated and your skin looking clear. Its hypoallergenic silicone touchpoints operate at a rate of 8,000 T-SonicTM pulsations per minute – with up to 12 adjustable cleansing intensities to choose from – to reach that ultimate skincare sweet spot: a gentle, deep clean.

It’s faff-free, too: the device’s app connectivity means you can sync your favourite cleansing settings via your smartphone, so you won’t have to recalibrate every time. Plus, the handy FIND YOUR LUNA feature lets you locate your device if you happen to misplace it. Which, if you’re using it for parties and pilates alike, could happen more than you think.

Personally, I use my LUNA mini 3 as a way to inject some luxury into my active, wellness-orientated lifestyle. It’s great before and after a workout: before to blitz away lingering makeup and prevent blocked pores, and after to banish any toxins that have built up while I’m working up a sweat. But it’s not confined to training sessions: whether you’re scurrying to and from meetings, catching an early flight or prepping for date night, there’s nothing like a swift, deep cleanse to brighten up your complexion.

Smart, sophisticated and yet deceptively simple, the Foreo LUNA mini 3 is the perfect, portable antidote to tired skin. Vitality at the touch of a button – in the palm of your hand. This modern woman is sold.
