Which Foreo Luna should I get? CurrentBody’s Ultimate Guide.

I can’t tell you how super excited I was to try out the new Foreo Luna device when we first got it in stock here at CurrentBody. It’s such a well thought out and attractively designed little skincare product that I couldn’t wait to see the results for myself. In the post we’re going to help you decide which device is best for you, and how you can save some money when you buy one!

What is the Foreo Luna?

Foreo Luna Sensitive/Normal at Foreo Luna Sensitive/Normal at

The Luna is a skincare device that helps to provide a super effective cleanse whilst also being as gentle as possible. The Luna’s T-Sonic waves (transdermal sonic pulsations) are channelled through smooth silicone touch points, going deep into the skin to drive out impurities whilst passing gently and smoothly across the skin’s surface. This little beauty is perfectly designed to bring out your skin’s natural radiance from within – not strip away the surface:

- Easy to use – just apply cleanser, wet your Luna and go. The Luna is completely waterproof too so it can be used as part of your daily shower routine.

- Only 2 minutes use morning and night for healthier, more radiant skin.

- One charge give you up to 450 uses. You heard right.

- Soft-touch silicone makes the device easy to clean and super hygienic – no more moving bacteria around your face.

- Relaxing Anti-Ageing Mode uses a lower frequency of pulsations to help fight signs of ageing.

After hearing what the Luna could do I was convinced – the only thing was, I wasn’t entirely sure which type to go for. I’m pretty sure that if I was wondering it, then some of you may be wondering too. So without further ado, here’s the CurrentBody guide to choosing the right Foreo Luna for you…

CurrentBody’s Ultimate Guide to Choosing your Foreo Luna

Foreo Luna Sensitive/Normal

Normal/Sensitive Luna

The Issues:

Congestion, dullness, dryness, pollution.

Your Skin:

Even if your skin isn’t ‘problem skin’, it still needs regular care and maintenance to look its best when battling the effects of day-to-day life – things like pollution, changes in the weather,  the occasional late night…
You may have the occasional spot or blackhead, or may feel some dryness/tightness if you aren’t wearing moisturiser. You may sometimes experience sensitivity to some skincare products or react to extreme weather conditions. In other words – you’ve got pretty normal skin!

Why Normal/Senstive Luna?

This Luna is great for all-round cleansing, care and maintenaince for keeping your skin at its best. The brush area consists of a bed of soft silicone touch points (nodules), with thicker touch points at the top for tackling those hard-to-reach areas (especially the area around the nose, I’ve found!). And the Luna’s 8 adjustable speed settings help you to adapt your cleanse to your skin’s varying needs.

Foreo Luna Combination

Combination Luna

The Issues

Breakouts, excessive blackheads, oil, long-standing blemishes.

Your Skin:

The Combination Luna user will mostly be concerned with excess oil and the many problems that come with it – such as breakouts, an oily t-zone, a build-up of blackheads, excessive shine and so on!

Why Combination Luna?

If you dream of clear skin and want to regulate your skin’s oil production for cleaner, brighter skin, then Combination is for you. If you have oily skin, then it’s often very tempting to focus more on problem areas. The Luna’s brush surface consists of carefully designed thin and thick touch points at intervals (again with those thicker touch points at the tip of the brush bed for hard-to-reach areas!). These variable thicknesses, in combination with the pulsating timer (which tells you when to move on to the next area of your face), help you to treat your whole face evenly, to help even out combination skin.

Foreo Luna SensitiveUltra-Sensitive Luna

The Issues:

Extreme sensitivity to touch/product/temperatures or extreme, active acne.

Your Skin:

The Ultra-sensitive Luna is sensitive’s skin’s best friend. If you have extreme sensitivity, it’s likely you have the same concerns as most people (ageing, congestion, dullness) but you may find yourself unable to care for your skin effectively due its sensitivity.

Why Sensitive Luna?

Ultra-Sensitive Luna enables you to super-charge the products that work for you. This Luna has soft ridges rather than touch point nodules, to ensure that excessive pressure is not applied to the skin. Especially effective for ‘painful to the touch’ acne, with the Ultra-Sensitive Luna you can deep clean and treat your skin problems gently, without making them worse by causing trauma to the skin! As with all the other models, adjustable speed settings help you adapt your Luna routine to your skin’s changing needs.

Foreo Luna For MenLuna for Men

The Issues:

Ingrown hairs, congested skin, dullness.

Your Skin:

Men tend to have a thicker, oilier skin than women do, and the touch points on the LfM reflect this by being thicker and firmer allowing for a deeper cleanse.

Why Luna for Men?

The Luna Men is great for treating skin unique to you bearded folk – whether you’re growing one or not! When used before shaving, the LfM helps to lift the hairs providing a closer shave, less sensitivity to the razor and therefore less ingrown hairs – but it’s also great for effective cleansing of a beard if you have one.

Foreo Luna Mini

Foreo Luna Mini

Constantly on the go and it’s starting to show? The Luna Mini is – you guessed it – a mini version of the lovely Luna.

- Smart, compact, waterproof and easy-clean – perfect for those on the go.
- Adjustable speed settings to adapt to your skin’s needs.
- USB charged for the ultimate convenience – with up to 300 uses per charge.

There you have it – there’s a Foreo that’s perfect for everyone.

So now you’ve decided which Foreo Luna is for you, it’s time to get one! To help you out we’re giving you 15% off the whole range using the code FOREOBLOG – Happy Cleansing!

    Hi there!
    I enjoyed reading your thorough breakdown of each Foreo LUNA device for each skin type. Sadly, I’m not quite definite on what my skin type is. I want to say it’s combination however it’s not your typical traditional combination. I am more of a combo-dry and my T-Zone is actually both dry AND oily (if that make sense). My chin area and forehead are a little bit on the drier side whereas my nose is oily YET it’s flakey and dry. My skin is also sensitive and prone to redness, flakey-ness, blackheads. I do not have any acne and I am under 20. I would really like to purchase the Luna. Should I go for the Luna MINI or one of the regular Lunas, and if so, which one?

    • Liv - - January 3, 2014

      Thanks so much for reading Thea. Sounds like you have a real challenge when it comes to your skincare!

      I think I’d still recommend the Combination Luna for you, and to try it first for a while on its lowest speed setting. That way you can see how it’s sorting out those oily patches, whilst making sure to be gentle enough not to aggravate your skin – as you can always turn things up a notch after a week or so if you’re not experiencing any sensitivity. The T-Sonic waves drive out impurities and should help clear pores whilst the small touch points should pick up those flakes as they move across the surface of your skin. We think the Luna is a good option for sensitive skins – hopefully you’ll see why if you get one. The touch points are so soft!

      I’d perhaps consider the Mini as a mini version of ‘Normal/Sensitive’- as the brush pattern is very similar to the full size Luna brush pattern in Normal/Sensitive, with the main differences being that it’s USB charged and smaller, for convenience.

      Please let me know if you need any more help – we’ve also got 10% off until the 7th if you want to take advantage!

      Thanks again for reading,

  2. Kate - April 26, 2014

    Hi! I can’t decide whether to buy Luna or Luna mini..does a mini model have the same differenciation depending on the type of skin? Could you give me any advice please?

    • Liv - - May 12, 2014

      Hi Kate, apologies for the late reply to your comment.
      The full size Luna’s silicone touch points are designed on each model to work best for different skin types, which is why if you look closely you can see each surface looks slightly different. However, all of the Minis have the same surface with the only difference being the colour of the device – the front has a similar surface to the Luna Sensitive and the back has larger nodules recommended for deeper cleansing. Mini is missing the Luna’s anti-ageing function and variable speeds, but does has slightly less battery life per charge (still 300 uses though!), but is charged by USB and is smaller making it super convenient on the go. Essentially – Luna is more adaptable, whilst Mini is the most convenient to care for relatively hassle-free skins. Hope that helps, just let me know if you have any more questions! ~Liv

  3. Vina - November 2, 2014

    Hi, I can’t decide which Luna is better for me,
    I really want to buy the Luna, but I don’t think that I need the anti-aging function just yet (i’m 20)
    Could you give me any advice?
    Thank You

    • Laura Howarth - November 3, 2014

      Hello Vina,
      Thanks for reading!
      The Luna is designed to give your skin a really deep clean, and the anti-ageing benefits are an added bonus of having wonderfully clean skin. It can also be used as a preventative measure against ageing, so your skin will thank you in years to come.

      When choosing a Luna, we recommend basing your decision on your skin type – if you have more oily skin with problem zones, the Combination Luna is perfect as it has thinner touch points for general cleansing, and then the thicker touch points for those problem areas. The Sensitive/Normal is gentle enough for everyday use, and has thinner touch points than the Combination. And if your skin is very sensitive, we recommend the Ultra-Sensitive Luna which has ridges instead of touch points, so it’s gentler on your skin.

      Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any further questions.

  4. Tanyarat - November 9, 2014

    I have read it but still cannot decide which model I should buy. Well, I have combination and sensitive skin with acne, blackheads and painful pimples. I’m not sure if combination one is fine for sensitive skin? Or if the ultra sensitive can control the facial oil? Please help me to decide which is the best for me. However, for my condition, it’s not good to go for mini one right? I’ve seen many people purchasing the mini one for daily use. Thanks!

    • Holly Robison - November 14, 2014

      Hi there!

      Apologies for the delay. I would suggest the combination model. 80% of the brush is covered with thinner touch-points for gentle cleansing, which will take care of the sensitive aspect of your skin. The other 20% is made up of thicker touch points for the stronger cleansing of your oily patches, and taking care of your acne, blackheads and pimples. I’d probably avoid the mini in this instance as it is less tailored to target specific skin problems.

      I hope this helps, let me know if you have any further questions,

  5. Erica - January 14, 2015

    I could not decide between luna for sensitive/normal skin or lunda for combination skin, because I got oily forehead but sensitive skin for cheeks. Which one will be more suitable for me? Would the luna for normal/sensitive skin enough for my forehead cuz it is quite oily usually but I’m also afraid that the luna for combination skin would be too much for my sensitive skin on cheeks.


    • Holly Robison - January 14, 2015

      Hi Erica,

      I would probably go for the sensitive one. I have a very similar problem to you and always go for sensitive products, as I find that products designed for oily skin dry out my cheeks. The best thing to do is choose the sensitive device, and use it with a liquid cleanser designed for oily skin on your forehead.

      Let me know if there’s anything else I can do,

  6. fanny - January 28, 2015

    Hi, I would like to purchase luna but don’t know which one to buy. When is summer time my skin is oily but at winter my skin is normal to sometimes dry. So which luna should I buy with the anti-aging too?

    • Holly Robison - February 3, 2015

      Hi Fanny,

      It sounds like the combination (blue) model might be best for your skin. It has thinner touch points for gentle cleansing of your dry patches in the winter, and thicker touch points for oily patches in the summer.

      I hope this helps,

  7. Maya - February 27, 2015

    Hi, I couldn’t decide which Luna should I buy. I have rosacea. Normal to dry skin, sometimes it gets sensitive and redness from sun & some makeup/drug store brands. My face also is prone to pimples. Should I go for the Ultra-Sensitive type, or the Normal/Sensitive one?

    • Holly Robison - March 4, 2015

      Hi Maya,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I’d probably go for the Ultra-Sensitive, mainly because of your rosacea and the dryness of your skin. You’ll still get the same effects, but it’ll be kind to your delicate skin in the process!

      Let us know if you need any further advice,

  8. Sarah - May 24, 2015

    I have combination to oily skin that is sensitive and acne prone. Which Luna would you recommend? And is the mini good for a travel option for me? Thanks!

    • Holly Robison - May 29, 2015

      Hi Sarah,

      I’d probably go with the Aqua (combination) option as it sounds like it would be best for your skin type. The minis are fantastic for travel purposes and I’m sure you’re skin would be just fine with it, however if you are looking for something a bit more tailored to your specific needs the combination model is the best option.

      I hope this helps!

  9. Dora - June 26, 2015

    Hello, I was wondering if the luna men is only good for men with beard? Since luna men is with all the luna men is with all thick points, would that be too harsh for other parts of the skin like the forehead, cheeks for men? I am thinking to buy a normal luna or a luna men for my boyfriend.

    • Holly Robison - August 19, 2015

      Hi Dora,

      The Luna for Men will be fine to use, even if your boyfriend doesn’t have a beard. Although it has the thicker touch points, it’s still very gentle and kind to skin, so won’t be too harsh on the cheeks or forehead.

      I hope this helps,

  10. Elaine - August 19, 2015

    I’m contemplating on which foreo to get. I have rather oily skin, but sensitive at the same time. I tend to get slight breakout on my forehead and one or two small pimples on my cheeks and chin area. I have tons of blackheads on my nose and that has always been a concern.

    I don’t know if I should get the Luna or Mini, because I’m 21 this year, and I don’t think I need the anti-aging function yet. It’s good to have, but I’ve read reviews that have said the anti-aging function isn’t as effective as it claims. Will the Mini work well for my face?

    • Holly Robison - September 3, 2015

      Hi there,

      If your budget allows I’d definitely go for the Luna Combination (the blue one). Even though you don’t particularly need the anti-ageing function, this model has 8 speeds as opposed to 2, meaning you can tailor it to treat the different areas of your face that require alternating strengths of cleansing. It’ll work better on your blackheads too.

      I hope this helps,


  11. agil - September 2, 2015

    I have a dry and prone skin but i feel my forehead is oily and also I think my skin is a bit sensitive because i get breakout easily i have some little bumps like white head and acne in my cheek and forehead. I’m thinking about buying forea luna because there’s so many good review about it. So wich foreo luna that you think is good for me?
    Thank you..

    • Holly Robison - September 3, 2015

      Hi there,

      As you have both sensitive and oily skin I would recommend using the Combination (blue) model as it’ll take care of the moisture levels whilst also being delicate on sensitive and breakout areas.

      I hope this helps,

  12. Jo - September 2, 2015

    Hi there
    Thank you for a good review:-) Im like so many others doubting if i should invest in the luna for sensitive/normal or for combination skin? My skin has a tendency to be dry, dull and kind of rough looking.. I don’t have much problem with either oil or acne og sensitivity. I do feel that my skin gets more plump after a good exfoliation, and im worried the pink one is too soft? But in the same time they recommend the blue one for oily skin, which i dont have either, so what do you think??:-) Thank you so much in advance for your help:-)

    Much love, Jo

    • Holly Robison - September 3, 2015

      Hi there Jo,

      From what you have described I would go for the Sensitive/Normal model. The device has 8 speeds so despite being described as ‘for sensitive skin’, it still packs a punch when on the higher speeds! If you already have quite dry skin as opposed to combination I would avoid the blue model, as it could dry your skin out further.

      I hope this helps!

  13. Jo - September 3, 2015

    Thank you for quick answer.. I’m still wondering a little as I always found gentle cleansers to not be good for my skin. I really need my pores to be cleansed mechanically, so therefor the worry if the pink one is more gentle than necessary.. (Plus I like blue).. And I find it hard to understand just how big and what difference those two extra lines of thicker rubber things on the blue one actually does..? It’s not that a have a problem with dry skin, I guess my skin is quite normal but just wish to have it more plumb and do what I can to limit fine lines..

    • Holly Robison - September 10, 2015

      Hi Jo,

      There isn’t a huge amount of difference in terms of power and cleansing ability between the two, it’s more the difference in oil control. I’m sure you will be fine with either one, just make sure to use the speed that feels like it’s doing the best job. Have you ever considered the deep pore Clarisonic?


  14. Oscar - September 20, 2015

    Hi there. I noticed that there is only 1 men version, does it work on oily skin or would the combination version work better on a guy? Thanks

    • Holly Robison - September 29, 2015

      Hi Oscar,

      The Foreo for men is designed less for specific skin types, it’s more recognised as being good for pre-shaving. If it is oil balancing you are concerned about, the Combination Foreo is also fine for men to use.


  15. Annette - September 21, 2015

    I am trying to decide on which one to get. I have very dry skin and also sensitive. Now that I’m older my pores are larger. I hope you can help me. Thank you in advance

    • Holly Robison - September 29, 2015

      Hi Anette,

      I would go for the Normal/Sensitive option (the pink one) as it has varying touch points. The thinner ones will help with your sensitivity and the thicker ones will help with open pores.

      I hope this helps,

  16. Chi - October 20, 2015

    helloooo, i too an debating on which foreo to get, i have dry skin on my chin adn acne on the sides of my face, while under my eyes tend to get oily do you have a recommendation? i was thinkin gthe sensative/normal or mini, but dont know the major differences or beinfits ? besides the anti-aging
