Foreo brings its Luna facial cleansing device stateside

BY Antoinette Alexander

 

NEW YORK — Sweden-based beauty company Foreo has launched stateside with its Luna facial cleansing device.

With business in the U.K. and Asia since its inception in 2013, Foreo is continuing to grow with the introduction of Luna in the U.S.  Within the last two months, Foreo entered more than 1,500 doors and e-commerce counterparts in established retailers nationwide.

With headquarters based in Stockholm, Sweden, Foreo utilizes multidisciplinary collaboration between specialists in dermatology, dentistry, engineering and ethics to create beauty devices that merge aesthetically striking designs with functionality.  

The brand's first stateside introduction, the Luna, features T-Sonic pulsation (transdermal sonic pulsations) technology. The 8,000 pulsations per minute are channeled through Luna’s soft, silicone touch points. While in cleansing mode, these pulsations create a "patting" motion directed across the skin's surface, subsequently dislodging dirt and makeup from the pores. Through this tap-like movement, the skin can be cleansed without the rotating or oscillating action of existing bristled devices that might irritate the skin or harm its elasticity due to their pulling and pinching effects. Luna utilizes medical grade silicone, delivering more hygienic properties than nylon bristles while removing 99.5% of dirt from the skin's pores, the company stated.

The Luna also features an anti-aging surface on its reverse side that channels lower-frequency pulsations that deliver a gentle massage. This massaging effect is known to increase micro-blood circulation and help with the relaxation of facial muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Luna is 100% waterproof, provides up to 450 uses from one single charge, does not require a change of brush head and has a selection of speeds to accommodate personal preference, the company stated.

After launching with the first retailers in 2013, the Luna range will be placed in more than 4,000 stores globally by the end of this year. The Luna range consists of several different models with options for everyone and every skin type:

  • Luna: Currently the flagship of the Luna range, featuring eight speeds and an anti-aging mode; available in three designs for ultra-sensitive, normal and combination skin types;
  • Luna Mini: A travel-friendly T-Sonic cleansing device suitable for all skin-types and available in five colors;
  • Luna for Men: Designed specifically for a man's oilier skin, this take on Luna promises to ensure a closer, smoother shave after one minute of use, while driving out the skin's impurities to help prevent razor burn; and
  • Luna Luxe: Luxe designs include a 20-karat gold base and four-zone brush surface for women, and platinum base and thicker touch-points for men, both with dual T-Sonic technology.

Band One Direction launches makeup for fans

BY Antoinette Alexander

 

LONDON — Music group One Direction is launching a range of makeup inspired by, and designed for, its fans.  

Make-Up by One Direction is designed and marketed by Markwins International, in concert with MCI Beauty Limited — a partnership between Markwins International, CBBeauty Limited, and Eden Parfums Limited.

The collections features limited-edition packaging inspired by the band's albums, "Midnight Memories," "Take Me Home" and "Up All Night."  Products feature formulas that should resonate with fans, including LiquiLights Glow Gloss, a UV-reactive gloss that sparkles during the day and glows under black (UV) light after dark.

Band members — Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Harry Styles — are currently engaged in a world stadium tour and hinted at news of the line when Horan posted a photo on Twitter of his nails covered in varnish and his hands "swatched" with makeup.

"Just had a great meeting about 1D make up! It's that good I'm gonna start wearing it myself," tweeted Horan.

The line debuted at Macy's and is expected to expand into other retail venues in the United States and around the world.

PhRMA educates consumers on the ABCs of health coverage and access to prescription medicines with new website

BY Michael Johnsen

 

 
 
WASHINGTON — The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America on Tuesday launched AccessBetterCoverage.org, a new website designed to educate consumers about the ABCs of health coverage and access to prescription medicines.
 
“We know health coverage can be confusing and overwhelming – particularly for those purchasing it for the first time – so we wanted to create a simple, straightforward resource to help demystify the process and equip patients to make coverage decisions that are right for them,” stated PhRMA president and CEO John Castellani. “Our primary goal is to ensure patients have access to the health treatments and services they need.”
 
The new site introduces important resources to help people better understand how health insurance works and what to expect from their coverage, including a series of white board videos explaining basic insurance terms like deductibles, copays and coinsurance, and how formularies and tiers work.
 
While health insurers apply a range of tools to try to manage health care costs, in some cases the tools put a burden on patients and their providers. A new video featured on the site walks through these possible hurdles and the resources at AccessBetterCoverage.org may help patients overcome them.
 
The site also features an interactive glossary of healthcare terms, news updates, research and primers on coverage basics helping consumers better understand this complex piece of the health care system.
