LUNA 2, an essential and upgraded addition to my skincare routine

Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing the FOREO LUNA 2, which I’ve been using for some time now, and which has become the most important part of my cleansing routine!

 

My skincare upgrade

My first brush with FOREO was the LUNA mini 2 device which came about when Foreo launched in India at Sephora a few years ago. I started by using the LUNA Mini 2, which is a great device to start with if you are new to t-sonic cleansing brushes. And recently, I upgraded to the LUNA2, since it has the added anti-ageing benefit as well, and I couldn’t be happier! For those who still haven’t seen my LUNA mini 2 review, check:

All about LUNA 2
 
The LUNA 2 is basically a silicone cleansing brush that utilizes up to 2X the T-Sonic™ power to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, unclog pores of makeup residue, and remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil that can contribute to adult-onset acne breakouts. There are 4 brush options to pick from depending on your skin type – normal, combination, sensitive and oily. Each of the variants comes in a different color so it’s easy to distinguish between them. The one pictured in this post is the blue variant which is meant for combination skin.

You’ll notice that the other side of the brush has grooves that looks different from the silicone bristle on the top side. Its reverse side uses lower-frequency pulsations to massage the face, visibly reducing fine lines around the eyes and mouth, and leaving the skin looking firm and lifted. The anti-ageing mode of the LUNA 2 also improves the absorption of your favorite skincare products- creams/ serums/gels/toners etc.

Using the LUNA2 is very simple ;

1. Apply Cleanser

Start by applying your favourite cleanser onto damp skin. Wet the LUNA 2 and activate its Cleansing Mode by pressing the button located in the lower half, center of the device.

2. Cleanse

Gently glide the LUNA 2’s cleansing surface in circular motions over your face for 1 minute.

3. Rinse

Rinse and dry your face. At this stage, you can apply your skincare products (toner, serum, moisturizer etc.)

4. Anti-ageing massage

Activate the LUNA 2’s Anti-Ageing Mode. Press its anti-ageing massaging surface onto wrinkle-prone areas (under eye, cheek,
forehead, nose etc) for a total of 1 minute.

After a few weeks of usage, 2x a day, I’ve noticed my skin feeling and looking much smoother and brighter. The anti-ageing mode helps your skincare absorb much better into the skin, thus boosting the efficacy of the products you may be using already! The deep cleansing helps skin shed the dead cells, not allowing them to build up and clog the pores, hence the skin stays clear and blemish-free.

My Verdict
 
Personally, for me, the traditional bristle-type cleansing brushes (with nylon bristles) always felt a little harsh but the FOREO LUNA devices are so gentle on the skin, thanks to the use of soft silicone bristles! I am truly happy to have made the upgrade to the LUNA2 and I highly recommend it to you all as well! Also, this cleansing device is available at a 30% discount for the black Friday and cyber Monday sale.

How I manage my skin in Mumbai : My current Skincare favorites!

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing some of my current skincare favorites with you. Some of these are new launches, some are just new to me, but all of these have been working very well for my combination skin.

FOREO LUNA 2 for Cleansing

The weather has become exceedingly warm and humid in Mumbai, which always leads to my skin getting excessively oily, resulting in breakouts. I knew about the LUNA range of FOREO, and had reviewed the LUNA mini 2, about a year ago. Here’s the link, for those who haven’t seen it. Thankfully, the LUNA mini 2 worked wonders for my skin, and with the whole touching 30 phenomenon, I decided to upgrade my gadget into the next model, which is the LUNA 2. The cleansing brush comes in 4 variants, for every skin type and I’m glad there’s a variant for combination skin; I often face quite a bit of struggle when it comes to choosing products for combination skin!

 

TRIED & TESTED: MY VERDICT

What I like most about the FOREO cleansing brushes (since I’ve used two now) is the fact that they aren’t harsh and abrasive on the skin, unlike many others available in the market. Made with medically graded silicon, the bristles cleanse through the pores removing excess oil, grime and dirt, thereby making it the perfect skincare buddy and addition into my kit. As a beauty and makeup influencer, my biggest problem (also because of my skin type), was the constant feeling of my skin feeling oily, and lacking lustre. I noticed visible results, and the difference in my skin texture and tone after using it for a month.

IS IT WORTH THE INVESTMENT?

The product undoubtedly is on the expensive side. However, with all that investment, what you get in return is a drastic improvement in your skins external health, and the best part is it comes with a 2-year warranty (which is very unlike the other brands available in the market). So, it is definitely a YES, from my side! You can get this at Sephora in India, in-store as well as online.

Tropical Red Lip

 

This is usually the time one moves to cooler hues (hello, autumn!) but Mumbai, being Mumbai, is unbelievably hot and humid at the moment and I’m finding myself drawn to more summery styles and colors. This makeup look is inspired by the outfit (as is the case with a lot of my looks!). I picked this tropical print dress from H&M online and took cues from the orange-red hue in the print. I love tropical prints, the greener the better! Not just for outfits but for bedding, cushion covers…anything really!

To complement this bright red lip, I did a soft coppery eye with my signature winged liner, some natural looking false lashes and a glowy bronzed cheek! I would normally accessorize this look with warm tones but these jumbo silver sequinned earrings actually worked out quite well here 😀

FOTD : Liner Drama

 

Its been a while since I’ve done a blog post. Its also been some time since I went a little overboard with eyeliner! So putting these two together, here’s the look I created yesterday. I used a combination of black gel liner (tried the Tarte, amazing formula!) and used black and brown eye shadows to soften and blow it out a little for a more diffused look. You can create this with any black gel liner. But you definitely a matte black and brown eye shadow, and a really good, fine brush to create this. And a practiced hand 😅.

Easy hairstyles for Mehendi ft. BBLUNT

 

Hi everyone! It’s the wedding season and we’re all looking for new looks to try this season. I’ve partnered with BBLUNT to create really easy, beginner-friendly looks for lighter functions like mehendi. Whether you’re the bride yourself or a bridesmaid (or even just a guest!), I’m sure you’ll be able to pull off these looks with great ease. Being a novice when it comes to hair myself, BBLUNT products help make hair styling simpler and are very easy to use!

 

Look 1 : Braided Bun
For the first look, I created a braided bun. I started by using the BBLUNT Intense Moisture Hair Serum which is a clear serum that adds nourishment to the hair and makes it more manageable. It also contains oils of Jojoba, Avocado and Argan which make the hair softer and smoother. You can buy this hair serum online and also use it as a heat protectant before styling.

Next, I created a centre parting for my hair and proceeded to add some dimension to my hair using the BBLUNT One Night Stand Temporary Hair Colour in Bronze to a few strands of hair. This gives a dramatic splash of temporary colour that you can easily wash off the next day. You can buy these temporary hair colours online and I would highly recommend the
shades Bronze and Copper for the festive season.
