FOREO LUNA Mini 2 vs. Sunmay Facial Cleansing Massager
Updated: Sep 22, 2018
TL;DR: If you have oily skin, I recommend Sunmay Sonic Face Cleanser and Massager because the bristles are stiffer and you're face feels cleaner. Sunmay is $33.98. If you have dry, sensitive, normal skin I recommend FOREO LUNA Mini 2 because the bristles are softer and it's more of a gentle cleanse. FOREO LUNA is $139.00. It's going to come down to what feels best on your skin and what you want to spend, because they both work.
I bought and have been using the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 since May 18, 2016! I bought the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 and used it regularly every day for 131 days, prior to purchasing Sunmay Sonic Face Cleanser and Massager.
It took me about 2 months of solid use with the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 before I even noticed a difference on my face. There were subtle differences from the beginning, obviously, but actually, a big enough difference for me to be happy with took almost 60 days. My complexion was clearer and my face brighter. I have read negative reviews of 'it doesn't work' only to see they used it for two weeks. To see significant poor shrinkage I would give it 2 months of daily use with a great cleanser.
I don't wear any makeup on my face just some mascara and chapstick most days:
Sunmay Sonic Face Cleanser and Massager and FOREO LUNA Mini 2 are based off the same technology. My favorite part about the Sunmay brush was actually the pointed tip because I felt like it actually cleaned around my nose where it meets my cheek much better than the LUNA. I also liked the back bristles on Sunmay's cleanser better than the back bristles on the LUNA. There's no doubt the LUNA has much softer front facing bristles, but because Sunmay's bristles are a little harder, it gives you the mental feeling it is working better.
The way I use my facial brush is about 12-15 seconds [counting Mississippi-less-ly] each on my check, then my nose, my chin, my other check, and then my forehead! I alternate between Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser and Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser and I am in love with Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel. I rub the cleanser on my face, leave it on, use the brush to help scrub in the cleanser, rinse off! Your face is going to feel brand new after you use a facial cleanser! You're going to feel so clean. Results will come you just have to be both patient and consistent! Overall, if you aren't brand loyal to FOREO, don't want to spend $140, but do want to try a facial cleanser I really recommend Sunmay Sonic Face Cleanser and Massager. I think it's a great buy for the price range.
