I’ll admit it: I have a real love-hate relationship with cleansing brushes. After years of religious Clarisonic-ing — which, while perfectly fine for some people, ended up doing more harm than good to my acne-prone skin — I quit cold turkey, and hadn’t looked back since. That is, until my editor challenged me to try out the latest launch from cleansing brush purveyor Foreo, the Luna Fofo.
While the name may sound more like an iconic Flight of the Conchords momentthan a nifty skin-care device, there’s nothing silly about the Fofo. In fact, it’s just about the smartest cleansing brush I’ve ever tried. Unlike the regular Luna, and all of its numerous offshoots, Fofo creates a customized cleansing routine for your skin instead of a one-size-fits-all automatic regimen and is touted as a “smart beauty coach” on the packaging.
