REVIEW – Neutrogena light therapy acne mask

If like me you’ve had troubles with your skin since you can remember you’re probably feeling a little blah when it comes to trying new skincare routines or treatments.

I was very much the same. How many skincare products can you use before you realise you’ve probably spent more money on products that don’thelp or worse cause more breakouts? I’ve tried all the ranges and brands that are suppose to stop any future outbreaks, reduce size of pores, kill the bacteria that causes acne etc etc but nothing overly seemed to work. People always say to let your skin breathe so I’ve tried that too, but letting your skin breathe is kind of hard when you’re insecure about your face because of the acne.

Applying make up becomes a little difficult because let’s face it (excuse the pun) you can never really hide that rubbish. You can see the pimples and you can definitely see if you have any scars whether they be elevated or cratered. It’s a never ending cycle of disliking your face without make up and feeling like people may see that you’ve tried excessively and for quite a while to hide the blemishes.

I’ve tried changing my diet, didn’t make a difference.

I’ve tried chemical peels, aggravated my skin further.

I was at a loss of how I was going to make my skin better and in turn feel better about myself. My mum, as all mums do, cottoned on to my predicament when I was a lot younger than I am now, and has always picked up lotions and potions and tried to make it better for me. So, in turn it had to be her that found my solution.

The Neutrogena light therapy mask sounds a little daunting but it’s a very simple concept. You get a mask that makes you look a little phantom of the opera-esqe and a pod shaped mechanism called the activator. The activator is a set timer that powers the mask for thirty treatments. It’s recommended that you use the mask daily to see more effective results. The mask has a mixture of red and blue lights that target the bacteria that causes acne. When the two colour spectrums come together they displace the make up or the bacteria making it unable to penetrate the skin. It also therefore targets existing acne, killing the bacteria and reducing the spot size pretty quickly.

I’ve been using it for 10 days and I haven’t had a new breakout at all. It’s managing my pigmentation from the acne and rapidly making all my skin the same tone. The only issue is my scars but after 10 days I think it would be overly optimistic to think they would go too. I’m honestly astounded by the results.

I would 100% recommend this to anyone who has acne. Hopefully they’ll create a HomeKit for those who suffer with body acne or blemishes. I should imagine it would also benefit those with certain skin conditions as well.

Light therapy is usually big bucks if you go to a salon, so to have the opportunity to sit at home and do it for 10 minutes each day for a minor cost of £39.99 (you do have to replace the activator after 30 sessions) is a no brainer.

It’s also available all most retailers and stays roughly around the same price mark.

Overall, I think it’s something you should definitely try if you have pains getting rid of the lodgers in your face. They’re moving out.
