We’re in! Help ‘Save the Sea’ with FOREO’s NEW LUNA™ mini Special Edition
FOREO are doing something rather wonderful this summer and it’s all about protecting our big blue oceans.
From now until the end of September, net proceeds from their LUNA™ MINI “SAVE THE SEA” SPECIAL EDITION will support FOREO’s newly established Board of Ocean Conservation charity partners including GreenWave and SEALIFE Trust.
How the LUNA™ works and why we like it so much
A cleanser for life
When FOREO first launched their original LUNA™ and mini LUNA™ they literally changed the cleansing game.
VOGUE called it “revolutionary” and while we’ve always been cautious about calling products “game-changers”, this would definitely be one of them. I remember when I first tested it. In 4 days my skin looked so much more refreshed and glowy that I was sold on it pretty much instantly back then – and still am. I like the sustainable/eco element, too (more on that below).
Not surprisingly, perhaps, FOREO is a Swedish brand which explains a lot. The Swedes are such natural innovators when it comes to design/tech ideas.
Two different double-sided cleaning surfaces, front and back:
The cleaning brush (shown left/front) and also a deep cleaning surface on back of the device (shown right)
Here’s how FOREO’s LUNA™ mini ‘Save the Sea’ Special Edition is raising awareness and funds for ocean conservation.
- Net profits from each sale will be donated to FOREO’s Board of Ocean Conservation charity partners
- This award-winning LUNA™ mini device in a Special Edition ‘Aqua Blue’ features an exclusive marine life stamp pattern
- T-Sonic™ technology integrated into a silicone design; silicone is a sustainable material and has a low environmental impact
- The product packaging is made from 100% recyclable materials
It doesn’t just deep cleanse skin, it protects skin’s delicate pH balance
First, a bit of a “caveat”. I’ve never been the biggest fan of cleansing devices with bristles – ditto a lot of the more “sandblasting” type exfoliants (and I never use microbead exfoliating products as they’re terrible for the environment) because I think they can sometimes be too much for skin – particularly if yours veers towards the sensitive side.
We’ve become a bit over-obsessed with squeaky clean skin. So much so, that over-cleansing and exfoliating actually disrupts what’s called Skin Surface pH, i.e. the protective acid mantle – and when that’s unbalanced, problems can follow. We don’t hear as much in the beauty press about Skin Surface pH as we probably should, but as dermatologists know all too well this pH balance is critically important, because it’s the foundation of radiant/fresh/healthy skin – and like life itself, balance really is key.
What’s the Foreo LUNA™ difference?
This is where the Foreo LUNA™ difference comes into play. Rather than cleansing with bristles, we’re talking tiny silicone touch points on a palm-of-hand sized “pebble” shaped gadget which gently buzzes away to stimulate the skin. This pulsating cleansing device was specifically designed to help “activate” your cleanser by enabling your skin to absorb it better – plus, it gets rid of old dead cells without “scouring” your face and feels great to use.
And you’ll never have to change brushes!
One hour’s charge delivers up to 300 cleanses
Extra points for the long life battery charge – one hour’s charge delivers up to 300 cleanses (no chronic dead electric toothbrush syndrome or fiddling with foreign electrical sockets – perfect for summer wanderlusting. If you took 10 months off to go round the world you’d never have to charge it if you used it just once a day – or 5 months using it morning and night!)
8,000 sonic pulsations a minute
Up to 8,000 sonic pulsations per minute are sent beneath the skin when you apply the LUNA™ mini to your face which helps to:
1) Unclog dirt, oil or makeup residue from pores
2) Stimulate the flow of blood and lymph
3) Oxygenate and detoxify the skin to boost a healthier-looking complexion
LUNA™ mini ‘Save the Sea’ Special Edition had sold out at Feelunique.com earlier this month but it’s back in stock now, or visit Foreo.com where you’ll find it and can also read up on the whole range of FOREO cleansers.

A closer look at how FOREO’s unique cleansing system works
Up to 8,000 pulsations per minute are channeled through soft silicone touch-points to gently remove dead skin cells as well as makeup residue, and unclog pores of 99.5% of dirt and oil*.
Unique Silicone Design
The silicone brush is nonporous to resist bacteria buildup, making it up to 35x more hygienic than cleansing brushes with bristles.
Silicone is also a material that has a low environmental impact due to its sustainability.
Smooth, soft silicone touch-points glide across the skin for deep and effective facial-cleansing that’s actually gentle enough to use every day.
Smart and Travel-Friendly
Compact and fully waterproof, FOREO LUNA™ mini is energy-efficient by lasting up to 5 months on a single 1-hour charge, plus it requires no replacement brushes – resulting in an absolute minimal output to landfills.
