If you’re into your skincare, there’s no doubt that you’ll have heard of Foreo Luna, the facial cleansing device that cleanses your skin deeper than your hands ever could.
However, with its high price point it may not be within your budget. Don’t worry though, amazing skin isn’t out of reach, there are plenty of dupes on the market that work just as well and can be incorporated into your current skincare routine as they can be used with any kind of face wash.
Below, I’ve compiled some of the best dupes on the market and answered some questions – read on!
Sunmay Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush
This sonic facial cleansing brush by Sunmay is shaped like a leaf, which makes it easy to get into all the contours of your face, including around your nose which is an area prone to blackheads if you don’t cleanse it properly.
It has 15 different speed settings so you can choose the setting that suits your skin the best. The soft silicone bristles vibrate 7000 times a minute, to provide deeper cleaning than with your hands.
The silicone is a lot easier to clean than other kinds of bristles, meaning that it won’t transfer bacteria to your face when using it and you won’t have the extra expense of having to change the facial brush head.
One of the things I love about this brush is that it pauses every 20 seconds, meaning it’s time to move to another section of your face and it turns itself off after 2 minutes to avoid over-cleansing and irritating your skin.
The brush is waterproof so you can use it to clean your face in the shower, or you can use it on other parts of your body prone to blackheads, such as your back and shoulders.

Hailicare Face Massager Brush
This face massager brush by Halicare cleanses the face, reduces the appearance of blackheads, exfoliation and massages the face too.
I love that this brush massages the face, as this helps to increase the blood flow to the face and drains any excess fluid that can build up – leaving you looking depuffed and with a healthy glow.
The massager brush has 3 different bristle types, a coarse brush on the top that is best used on oil-prone areas such as the nose and forehead, a tiny brush below this for the more delicate areas such as the cheeks, and a coarse brush on the back that spans a wider area for massaging your face and relaxing your facial muscles.
The brush is really easy to hold due to its shape, its waterproof and made of high quality silicone, which as mentioned before is easy to clean to prevent bacteria build up.
It has multiple speed settings, starting on the medium one when you turn it on, from there you can use the + and – signs to find the best mode for you.
It also holds its charge well, with some reviewers saying it takes up to 3 months for the charge to run out!

- Multiple vibration settings

This facial cleansing brush by FashionBase effectively buffs away dead skin cells, dirt, oil and makeup residue to ensure your skin is thoroughly cleansed and looking brighter and healthier.
It has 5-speed vibration settings, with the high one allowing deeper cleansing and the low one boosting blood circulation which increases the production of collagen and elastin – reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and depuffing the skin!
It vibrates 6000 times a minute and similar to the brush listed above, has 3 different bristle types.
The ergonomic design makes it easy to hold and it can be charged with any USB phone cable, so if you’re travelling and forget the charger – don’t worry!

Is The Foreo Luna Worth It?
Foreo Lunas have certainly made a name for themselves in the skincare world, and there’s a good reason for that – it’s an excellent product.
If you’re not sure about all the dupes on the market and are still tempted to buy the real thing, I don’t blame you! The Luna is made of medical-grade silicone that’s safe for all skin types, including sensitive, and is said to be more hygienic than other brands.
The Foreo claims to remove 99.5% of dirt and oils from your pores using the unique T-Sonic Pulsations that provide deeper cleaning, as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles and massaging your face too.
It has bristles on both sides of the device, one for customised cleansing and the other for deeper cleansing. It also has 12-speed settings and is said to give you 450 uses between each charge, which is amazing battery life.
The Foreo Luna is also said to help increase the absorption of skincare products, and there’s lots of different variants of the Foreo Luna, so you can really tailor the brush to your skin, rather than the ‘one size fits all’ of certain dupes.
There’s more than one Foreo brush in the range.
- Foreo Luna 2 – T-Sonic Pulsations vibrate at 8,000 times per minute meaning you get an even deeper cleanse, it even has a specific anti-ageing mode.
- Foreo Luna 2 Mini – perfect size for travelling, just a smaller version of the Luna 2.
- Luna UFO – a masking device that uses thermal and cryotherapy that can be used with specific Foreo sheet masks. It helps to activate the benefits of the sheet masks and make them more effective.
- Luna Go – made for men, with the same features as the Luna 2. It’s great for travelling.
Where Can I Buy Genuine Foreo Products In The UK?
With the Foreo cleansers being such famous products, there’s bound to be fakes out there, but there are places where you can buy genuine Foreo products in the UK.
Beauty retailers such as Cult Beauty sell multiple models of genuine/official Foreo cleansers, with different colour options too.
They both also have return policies, so if you’re not entirely satisfied with your order then you can return them.
