FOREO LUNA™ Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device: LUNA™ for Combination Skin

FOREO LUNA™ Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device: LUNA™ for Combination Skin:
I am a HUGE fan of the FOREO LUNA™! Actually, I have been using the FOREO LUNA™(the pink one for Sensitive/Normal skin) for almost two years now! Every time I am in-between testing out other skincare products, I always go back to my pink FOREO LUNA™. Be sure to check out my previous review of the FOREO LUNA™here! Across the board, I think that the FOREO LUNA™ is an amazing device. I honestly almost don't feel "clean" anymore when I wash without it. I seriously crave the soothing vibration and deep, yet gentle, clean that it gives. Not to mention, I have honestly only charged that device once in 2 years. I am amazed at how it keeps a charge, like, forever! 

So, when the FOREO LUNA™ became available through iFabbo, I jumped at a chance to review the FOREO LUNA™ again. Why? Because I feel that my skin has really changed type in the past few years since having 2 babies. My skin is much more oily now from all of the hormonal changes my body has gone through. My skin currently is on the oily side of Combination Skin and I have been wondering if a different FOREO LUNA™ device might meet the needs of my skin better?

For this review, I tried out the FOREO LUNA™ Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device for Combination Skin (the blue one). To find out the differences between the pink and blue FOREO LUNA™ devices and how I specifically like the FOREO LUNA™ Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device for Combination Skin, please click "read more" below!

My Daily Self-Care Routine: Staying Fresh and Clean All Day: Plus Sweepstakes!

Sponsored Post Affiliate Link

 
With the warm weather of summer upon us, having a stay-fresh beauty routine is a must! I must admit, I really do want to stay fresh and feel clean throughout the day and I take steps to achieve this little daily goal for myself. So, I am super excited to be partnering with Monistat®, a brand that I have used and trusted for years, to share my daily self-care routine for staying and feeling fresh all day! When I feel fresh and clean, I feel more confident and better about myself overall. It is that simple and so easy to take a few extra steps during the day to feel fresh and boost my confidence and mood.

My stay-fresh, self-care routine is not just about getting clean in the morning! It is about getting clean and staying fresh throughout the whole day!

I am a busy Mom-on-the-go. I don't have a ton of time to get ready in the morning and I certainly do not want to be fussing with a complicated routine throughout the day to stay fresh. With that said, I certainly do not want to end up being stinky either! My activities keep me on the move, from neighborhood walks, to play dates, park time, back yard fun, mall trips, and swim lessons, this list just goes on. I am certainly active and often sweating in this GA heat as I keep up with my 1-year old and 3-year old! So, my stay-fresh routine focuses on starting out my day clean and maintaining that feeling throughout the day.

My Self-Care Stay-Fresh Routine:

Morning Shower: No matter what, I have a shower in the morning. Quite simply: It wakes me up and gets me clean. I don't always wash my hair, but I always shower. So, on non-hair-wash days, my hair goes up and under a shower cap while I wash my body. While in the shower I start with washing my hair if it is a hair wash day. That way my conditioner can sit on my hair for as long as I shower to keep my hair in shape. Then I proceed to use bar soap to wash all over. Next, I rinse the conditioner from my hair. Then I shave my legs. Next, I wash my face. Last of all, I use a body pouf and scented shower gel to give my body one last wash (this also removes any conditioner residue from my body).

Post-Shower Essentials:
After drying off, I apply a few products to keep my body smelling great and feeling fresh. I apply lotion all over and lotion with SPF to arms, legs, and exposed areas for sun protection. Sometimes I add a bit of powder if I am feeling like it is a super hot day and that I need extra freshness. Next, I spray a fragrance to wrists, neck, and torso. Oh, and of course, we can't forget antiperspirant/deodorant! That is certainly an essential! After getting dressed, I often spray a fragrance mist/body splash all over to layer scent.

Freshness On-The-Go and Throughout the Day: 
My freshness routine does not end in the morning or in the bathroom at home! I always carry a small bottle of fragrance mist/body splash with me for freshening up throughout the day. Also, items like anti-bacterial hand gel (for my hands) and baby wipes (to use anywhere) can certainly keep you clean on-the-go. I keep my makeup looking and feeling fresh during the day by blotting with blotting papers. The slim packs of blotting papers are super easy to toss into your purse and carry with you. If I am swimming or exercising, I always carry antiperspirant/deodorant with me, too! I tend to like the spray kind for on-the-go. Also, if swimming, I like to apply a scented body lotion too after drying off and getting re-dressed (chlorine is so drying!).

End of Day:
My evening freshness routine depends on how fresh I stayed throughout the day. If it was a day of exercise, gardening, or swimming, an evening shower or bath is a must (even if it is a "quick rinse" just to get me clean). On other days, that I have maintained my freshness well, I just wash my face in the evenings. What can I say, I really do like climbing into bed for the evening feeling clean and fresh!
