Luna Mini Review (Alternative To Clarisonic)

05 November 2013 - 07:39 PM

Hi guys, never posted before but am trying a new product and wanted to share my results as I use it.

I'm testing out the Luna mini as a bzzagent, it basically means they let me get it at a reduced price and then they gave me coupons I can share with others if I like it and want to suggest it.

So here's my background now: I went off the pill about a year ago and the hormonal acne of my high school years came back full force, I went to Dan's regimen which I've used before with success. I use Neutrogena pore refining cleanser, Dan's BP, Olay Complete sensitive skin, and a couple drops of Aura Cacia jojoba oil. I'll use Dan's AHA on occasion alone or as a spot treatment.

I've been on the regimen consistently for about 4 months now, and I can say my large cysts have pretty much all gone away, but I'm still having issues with smaller bumps on my forehead and around my mouth. I tried using some salicylic acid and retinol as others suggested to combat them, but they just weren't helping. Oddly enough, I was looking into the clarisonic when I got invited to do the test for the Luna.

Here's what stood out about the Luna when I was looking at it: it doesn't use a brush, which made it seem gentler, and also the silicone tips don't trap bacteria as well as a brush does. I tried the olay brush before and had an issue with it trapping dirt, so that was one of my concerns with the clarisonic.

Day 1: took a picture of my forehead (sorry it's sideways, not sure why it is flipping when I upload) where I want to focus on, before I used the Luna for the first time to track progress. After bathing, I used the Luna to apply my cleanser and then proceeded with the regimen as usual. Initial thoughts: when using the Luna it was so gentle it barely felt like it was even on my face, and after using it a couple of my larger pimples came to a head, which is a bonus. When I applied BP, the application over my skin felt a lot smoother than usual. I'm still skeptical, so I'll check back in a couple days with an updated photo
