HOW TO STEPS
WHO ARE WE?
LUNAESCENT was founded to solve a common problem. The young son of our founder, Raana, had eczema which required steroid cream treatments. In applying these treatments, Raana developed reactions on her own fingers, struggled with latex gloves, and found silicone brushes ineffective and inefficient. These frustrations sparked a 'Eureka' moment leading to LUNAESCENT’S invention.
WHAT IS LUNAESCENT?
LUNAESCENT is a patent-pending touch-free beauty tool that is designed for hygienic and efficient application of any type of skincare products without using fingers. Each applicator comes with two high-grade silicone pads. One pad is smooth for application of skincare and the other is textured for massaging and depuffing. Both pads can be heated or cooled for comfort, better absorption, and more effective massage.
LUNAESCENT is a versatile and multipurpose beauty tool designed to gently apply skincare products without the waste and the contamination that results from using our fingers.
LUNAESCENT is an applicator and massager in one handy, lightweight, long-lasting, and easy to use/clean tool. It is designed to provide a more hygienic and well-shaped alternative to common beauty tools such as gua sha and jade rollers (stone tools are porous, unhygienic, unsuited for hard-to-reach areas, and cannot be warmed or cooled).
LUNAESCENT is ideal tool for the fragile post-treatment skin, significantly reducing adverse reactions such as infection that can result in scarring.
- Apply skincare products without contamination
Fingers cause contamination! The Food and Drug Administration has warned that “cosmetics can become harmful to consumers if they’re contaminated with harmful microorganisms, such as certain bacteria and fungi.” The most common way such a contamination happens, according to FDA, is through “consumer use, such as the need to dip fingers into the product.”
Even well-cleaned fingertips are not sterile and can transfer germs and bacteria into skincare products, and consequently onto your skin.
Lunaescent’s elegant and unique function is to provide a method of applying skincare products without the use of fingertips, thereby preventing waste, contamination, unwanted absorption, and other problematic issues. Lunaescent can be used with a variety of skincare products such as lotions, oils, or serums intended for beauty, medication, or skin-protection purposes.
- Apply sunscreen during outdoor activities without oily hands or need to wash
Applying sunscreen while playing sports is problematic. Sports such as golf, tennis, baseball, sailing, rowing, and more require a secure and non-slippery grip. Many outdoor sport enthusiasts get around this problem by using spray sunscreens or carrying a wet towel to wipe their hands after application. These attempted solutions are not ideal. Especially, spray sunscreen can be detrimental to eyes and lungs.
Lunaescent solves this issue seamlessly. Simply apply sunscreen to the pad, divide it up on your face or intended area, and rub in. The result - no oily/slippery hands and a better sports experience.
- Apply medicated creams and lotions without unwanted absorption
Applying medicated creams and lotions, such as topical steroids, can lead to unwanted absorption through your fingertips. Great for parents of young children or caretakers for the elderly.
- Replace other popular beauty tools
Beauty tools such as gua sha, various massagers, and jade rollers --which come in many different shapes, sizes, and materials--make dramatic claims of impact on users' skin. In truth, the science behind these claims is simple: The physical act of massaging skin with the aid of a lubricant (such as beauty oils, serums, etc.) assists blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Lunaescent replaces these other tools by effectively and gently achieving this same effect. It has a pivoting head which pivots to a maximum of 10 degrees to glide over the contours of the face, and around the corners of the eyes and the nose, but is stable enough to allow for the user to apply a firm but comfortable pressure to help with lymphatic drainage. The massaging textured pad is ideal for helping with blood circulation and can be stored in the freezer for a soothing and cooling massage.
Lunaescent is a universal beauty tool that cuts through the hype and follows the science. Lunaescent's two non-toxic and reusable pads allow you to: 1) apply skincare products without the germs and the mess, and 2) massage and revitalize your skin by simply swapping the smooth pad for the textured pad. It saves you time, money, and precious counterspace.
- Healthier and more radiant skin
Lunaescent prevents germs and bacteria getting into your skincare products reducing skin irritation and breakouts. This results in healthier and more radiant skin.
- More effective skincare products
Bacteria causes degradation of expensive active ingredients rendering them less effective. Lunaescent helps preserve the potency of active ingredients leading to more effective results.
- Less pronounced wrinkles and lines
Massage skin areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, or around the mouth using Lunaescent's massaging pad with your favorite beauty oil to see significant benefits:
1. Nourish your skin's surface by moisturizing and promoting blood flow to the area, and
2. Relax underlying face muscles for reduction of frown and smile lines. Noticeable results without injectables or medical intervention.
3. Promote lymphatic drainage and depuffing by massaging the skin in an upward motion to help with removal of the interstitial fluid which builds up under the skin and leads to a puffy appearance.
Lunaescent was designed for direct application of skincare products to the silicone pads. Some skincare containers, however, cannot be applied directly because they are too small. That's what the spatula is for! Simply use the spatula to scoop the skincare product from the container and apply it to the Lunaescent pad. You can now apply the product to your skin!
The Lunaescent Spatula is easily cleaned with soap and water.
Lunaescent is very easy to maintain. Simply wash with soap and water after use and let it air dry or dry with a clean cloth or towel.
Every week, remove the silicone pad and separately wash with soap and water or place in the utensil basket of your dishwasher for a full clean.
Please note that the Lunaescent applicator (handle) is not dishwasher safe.
Some active ingredients such as Vitamin C might slightly discolor the silicone pads over time. This will not affect the function of the pad. However, if you wish to replace them, we offer pad replacements in sets of 2 smooth or 2 textured pads.
Yes. One of the benefits of Lunaescent is that the user can focus application of the medicated cream or ointment to desired areas instead of risking absorbtion of additional amounts through their fingertips.
If applying medicated creams or ointments on others (such as parents, or caretakers of the elderly), the medicine can be applied safely and hygenically without any absorption into your own skin.
Many mineral sunscreens contain Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Avobenzene, etc. These ingredients are designed to act as a physical barrier against the sun and give our skin a white sheen when applied.
Typical application of suncreen is by fingertips. However, this causes a lot of product to get absorbed in the fingers, or simply to get wiped away. Lunaescent removes such unwanted absorption and wastage!
But be careful! Lunaescent is so efficient compared to fingertips that it may feel like there is excess sunscreen that is not being absorbed. In reality, the skin can be fully protected with far less sunscreen product. Lunaescent can result in genuine savings in wasted skincare product.
The best way to apply sunscreen with Lunaescent is to place a small amount on the pad, divide it up by dabing different areas of your face and then rubbing it into your skin. You can always add extra amounts if you feel your skin can use more product. After a few sessions, you will learn how much product is needed to cover your face - not your face and fingers.
Yes, the pads can be placed in the freezer for a cooling and depuffing massage. Frozen pads can also be placed on the eyes for reducing under-eye bags and puffiness.
Yes. Lunaescent's oval shape is specifically designed to move smoothly around eyes and nose. Simply turn the handle horizontal so the oval tip matches up with the corner of the eye or the nose. Proceed with applying the product into those areas.
The applicator is simply wonderful, where has it been this whole time?! It's perfect for me to apply my serums at night and I get satisfaction that no product is being wasted on my fingers. The texture is smooth and clean and small protruding indents help to apply the serums deeper into my skin. My new year's goal is to do more skincare and this applicator makes it go a lot smoooother!
I can't believe how little I need of my tinted moisturizer now that I'm using the LUNAESCENT touch-free applicator. I'm using less than 1/2 of what I used when I used my fingers to apply my moisturizer. The amount shown in the picture below is the perfect amount for me that absorbs completely while using the applicator. The bonus is that the applicator is so easy to clean with just a drop of hand soap and water, unlike a battery operated tool.
This product is beautifully made and top quality. It only makes sense not to keep putting your fingers into your face creams and contaminating them. Now I can keep them pure and not compromised.
Handy for taking and using the applicator anywhere.
I am a slight germaphobe myself, so this applicator has been perfect in eliminating the risk of contamination from using my hands in my skincare routine. I used this applicator a few times now, and have noticed that I don’t use half as much product as I usually do without this applicator! I love that I also don’t lose product from it getting absorbed on my hands! While using this product, my skin feels like it’s getting a massage and feels so good. It makes me enjoy my skincare routine even more now! It glides so smoothly over the skin and maneuvers with ease when getting down to the neck area. I have yet to put the pads in the freezer to give a cooler sensation but I’m sure that will be lovely! Definitely recommend trying!
LUNAESCENT Touch-Free Skincare Applicator with Spatula
I love the lunaescent applicator and spatula. I use it daily to apply my skincare and makeup. The first thing i noticed about the applicator is i use less product since the silicone pad is non-porous which is amazing. The applicator has a pivoting head making it easy to use all over my face, neck and even ears. My favorite part is the little bumps on the silicone pad it massages the tension from my face while applying my skincare. The applicator is very versatile and can be used on the body as well. I highly recommend it.
You know how you never knew you needed something until you had it, then wondered how you ever lived without it? This is that skincare tool!! I use less skincare, I no longer have to use my fingers to get skincare out of tubs (which I absolutely cannot stand) I ha e recommend this to everyone I know.
I have been so obsessed using this applicator not only on myself, but on my clients as well. It is a great way to apply moisturizer ‘s and I especially love it to use my retinal treatment. It has become such a staple in my skin care routine. I am a disable to MakeUp Artist and reachability is always an issue for me. This tool has given me the freedom to reach without struggle. I definitely recommend anyone that is looking for a hands-free application. Made easier!!! Obsessed! 💕
What an outstanding product. I use far less facial products and my skin looks amazing. Never too oily. Never too dry. I swear by this applicator. It’s a ritual I look forward to every morning after I shower and every night before bed.
I love it so much I showed my mother and now she’s hooked. Love 💕 this applicator.
I use my Lunaescent applicator everyday. It works great, especially with serums that I rather end up on my face than on my fingers! I also love using it to put on my Nuface gel. The gel seems to dry slower when I put it on with the applicator, maybe because more of it ends up on my face! :) Great idea, great product, great results!
This is such a smart tool! I love that it is multipurpose and I can use it to apply my moisturizer and also use it to massage my face. Saves me money too.
Amazing tool very useful! I use it on a daily basis, Keep one in my car when I want to apply sunscreen throughout the day and my hands are not always clean, and of course I use it for my night regiment at home..
Very useful. It’s cute, and low-scoop so I don’t waste any product.

There is nothing like LUNAESCENT on the market. LUNAESCENT is not a thin silicone brush. It has a stable head which allows me to rub in every drop of my products. I've saved so much money! I also love using it at night for massaging my skin with beauty oil before going to bed.wrote a review about LUNAESCENT Touch-Free Skincare Applicator

Much better than jade rollers and gua shas
I like massaging my face with facial oils and serums but had a hard time using my gua sha and jade roller. They felt uncomfortable and I didn’t see any results. If I pressed too hard I would get a red rash and if I just lightly rubbed the tools on my face nothing happened. I also didn’t feel like I could clean them properly. Lunaescent is ingenious. I can warm up the pads or use them chilled which really helps with massaging. Best of all the pads are so soft and really easy to clean. Love this tool!wrote a review about LUNAESCENT Touch-Free Skincare Applicator
I love how easy it is to use!
I have to admit I thought the price was ridiculous. But the thing is, its the ONLY product of it's kind on the market. All the others have large bulky applicators. I was looking for something small to apply to a very small area I can't reach on my back. It works great, and the head is washable and replaceable which is awesome. The only thing is I wish the handle was just a tiny bit longer! But I love this item. It is easy to carry with me as I sometimes have to apply my medicine while I'm out of the house.wrote a review about LUNAESCENT Touch-Free Skincare Applicator
Brilliant life hack
This little gadget is a life saver. I have always hated putting on sunscreen or moisturizer because I find having to deal with oily fingers and hands afterwards very unpleasant. This applicator makes skincare so much easier and more practical for day to day life.
The applicator has a very high build quality and is very durable. Feels nice to touch with a high-end finish. And it looks nice.
The packaging is also very well done; it makes for a great gift.wrote a review about LUNAESCENT Touch-Free Skincare Applicator
