Gadgets and grooming go together. The razor is one of the most lucrative and innovative sectors and now beards as de rigour, there are swathes of tools and electrical items to preen and trim full follicled faces. A few years ago cleansing face gadgets swamped the women’s skincare sector and it was a natural progression for them to eventually target men too. And why not – everyone loves a clean face right? A deep thorough cleanse is fairly high on most men’s wish list, removing grim, dirt and blackheads. Gadgets do help and make the whole process quicker and easier. I’ve tried the quick action brushes and they work like a dream. Especially in the shower.
For an even more high tech option, FOREO has launched FOREO LUNA for Men. It’s a cleansing device designed for a man’s skin and typically it comes in black. The press release hails it as the Ultimate Pre-Shaving Skincare Device for a Closer More Comfortable Shave after Just 1-Minute! Well I have to say I’ve used it as a facial cleanser and pre-shave device and think it works brilliantly for both. It cleanses the skin and gives it a mini facial at the same time stimulating circulation which gives it a healthier look. But pre-shave – what it does is instantly lift the fine hairs of the beard to ensure a closer smoother shave. Add in the cleanser and its an essential step in the pre-shave ritual.
The core secret of FOREO LUNA for Men is the use of T-Sonic™ pulsations channelled through broad rounded silicone touch points across the surface of the skin. The LUNA™ for MEN drives out impurities, while cleansing the skin deeply to help reduce the chances of shaving irritation such as razor-burn leaving the skin feeling invigorated for a fresher morning look
FOREO LUNA for Men
FOREO LUNA™ for MEN also features an anti-aging surface on its reverse side, meaning the visibility of the signs of aging is also taken care of. Using both morning and night promises to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking smoother and enviably youthful.
So – any negatives?
Well it’s a great product – but it comes with a hefty price tag. £145 is not cheap in anyone’s book.
Key features include:
- The inclusion of T-Sonic™ technology directs up to 8,000 pulses per minute across the skin’s surface, while the patented silicone surface cleanses deeply and gently without the abrasive rotary scouring of conventional sonic devices.
- Cleansing surface with 1,000 soft, broad silicone touch points are configured in a specific alignment to suit the distinctive characteristics of men’s thicker, oilier skin.
- 100% waterproof, shower-friendly design fits seamlessly into any morning routine and is compatible for use with all standard non-abrasive cleansers, gels and creams.
- More than 450 uses from a single charge, the device comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty and ten-year quality guarantee.
You don’t have to use the specific cleanser from FOREO as any one will do (I’ve tried a number of cleansing gels and face washes and they are all fine). But if you want to stay on the money then grab a bottle of the FOREO CLEANSER for MEN, Daily Revitalizing Gel £30/ 100ml. It’s designed to purify and revitalize skin. Transforming from a marine blue gel into a white foam when used with the LUNA™ for MEN, this powerful deep-cleanser derives its strength from hydrothermal minerals to drive away impurities and excess sebum while detoxifying the skin of daily pollutants. Rich in mineral nutrients, it nourishes and reinforces the skin. Used twice a day to meet all of the facial-cleansing needs of men, the cleanser leaves the skin feeling revitalized, clean and fresh.
