Question: How did you start working at FOREO?

I’ve always been passionate about skincare and luxury goods. When the job opportunity arose I jumped at the chance to work for such an innovative and out-of-the-box brand.

Coming from working in luxury beauty I had seen FOREO around and was always attracted to the sleek designs. After learning more, I was fascinated with how effective and revolutionary the products were and knew I wanted to be a part of the company.

Question: What’s the most important skincare tip or secret you could give us?

Living and working in London I feel it’s especially important to thoroughly cleanse every night to remove the day’s grime.

I always double cleanse – first to remove my makeup and then a deeper cleanse using my LUNA 2 to unclog pores and remove dirt, oil and any leftover makeup residue.

My skin always feels super soft and my moisturiser sinks in so much better.

Question: Do you have any tips for those just beginning their skincare journey?

It’s never too early to implement a good skincare routine! Be gentle to your skin and don’t use anything too harsh.

The LUNA devices are made of soft silicone so they are non-abrasive and gentle enough to be used every day. If you are new to T-Sonic cleansing, start with the LUNA Play, which lasts for up to 100 1-minute cleansing routines.

You can try it out and see the difference in your skin before upgrading to a full-size device.

Question: What is the one skincare item you cannot live without?

The FOREO Day Cleanser contains Bergamot, Mandarin and Apricot Seed Extract so it is very refreshing and perfect to help wake me up first thing in the morning.

It leaves my skin feeling soft and contains probiotics to protect from pollution and external aggressions.

Question: What is your favourite beauty trend of the season?

It has to be fresh radiant skin! Autumn/Winter 2016 is all about a pretty and natural complexion.

Question: What skincare faux pas do you see too often?

Makeup wipes or not properly cleansing at night! It’s so important to deeply cleanse so your skin is ready for whatever serum, treatment or moisturiser you apply afterwards.

A clean, balanced base will ensure your products can work most effectively.

Question: If you had to pick one item from your collection what would it be and why?

It would have to be the LUNA 2 – I’ve even got my friends and family hooked!

Once you’ve used it once and felt the difference you won’t go back to cleansing without one.



Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
