So, of course, I was like, yay! Let’s add something into the already seven-hundred (exaggeration) step regimen! Deep in your conscious you always know this is never a good idea, but the impulsive part of you takes over. If you’re an acne prone person, you know clear skin shouldn’t be taken advantage of. Stick with what works. But the thing is, there was a going-out-of-business sale going on at Kitson and they had the Foreo Luna I had been eye-balling for about a month, so I convinced myself it could only help my skin look better.
The little face vibrator was 50% off and I still dropped $70 on it. No refunds, and damn it. I say damn it, because I hate this thing. I stopped using my Clarisonic Mia 2 over a year ago because the bristles were too rough and over exfoliated my sensitive, Retin-A exposed skin. I thought the Foreo Luna would be a good alternative because it has the vibrating function of the Mia, but not the irritating brush. I love the thought of junk being shaken out of my pores.
My skin broke out just two days after using the Foreo. I don’t mean a pimple or two, I mean 10 blemishes all over my face less than a week before meeting Kris Jenner. I’m sure
the company would tell me this was part of a purge period, but listen, I wash my face thoroughly twice a day with Pan Oxyl, I use Retin-A, I’m on a list of prescriptions for my skin…It’s squeaky clean. This wasn’t just a purge. My skin was rough and red after using it for just a short time. I haven’t used the Foreo Luna since! After stopping this product, my skin cleared up again.
Thankfully, I was somehow able to make myself presentable for the Kardashian matriarch.
As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.
In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.
Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
