I have been hard at work testing a lot of new products out there and the one I am bringing you today required a 30 day test! I received this product for free direct from the illuMask Company for testing purposes!Here is direct link to them http://www.illumask.com/anti-acne-mask/
A little background information about this illuMask is that it is FDA Cleared and has Clinically proven results to help you have acne free skin in just 15 minutes a day. It is safe enough to be sold at Wal-Mart and a link to them is here at http://www.walmart.com/ip/illuMask-Anti-Acne-Light-Therapy-Mask/32664760
I honestly was so excited to try this because I do suffer from occasional mild acne. When it hits my face its awful and it takes weeks to get it to clear up only to leave a scars then to happen to me again a month or two later. This illuMask seemed like something I could try and since its sold at Wal-Mart @ http://www.walmart.com/ip/illuMask-Anti-Acne-Light-Therapy-Mask/32664760 I was comfortable that wouldn't hurt my skin like other creams I have used that made my skin dry and worse in some cases (as in more red and inflamed). The illuMask is like something I NEVER tried before it has a Mask portion and a controller that counts down your 30 treatments (After 30 treatments your mask will no longer turn on or work). You just have to cleanse your skin with a mild cleanser (I used Simple, See my review for that from 2013) I would not use a cleanser you use for acne treatments because illuMask instructions do say mild cleanser and acne based cleansers usually contain benzoyl peroxide which by any means is not mild. I pat my face dry and then take out this mask that look a little weird but it does have eye protective glasses that also keep the mask on your face. I sit down click the button on and the Blue Light that kills acne cause bacteria turns on along with the Red Light that reduces inflammation and heals breakouts turns on as well. I sit relax for 15 minutes as it does its thing. After 15 minutes the mask turns off on its own and then I have 29 days left to go according the controller that is counting down my treatments.
After the first treatment I will be honest I ran to the mirror thinking did it do anything?! I had a pimple forming on the side of my nose that day ( I feel them before they even pop up) and I had something going on, on my chin. They were awful and painful on my chin and I knew the one on my nose would not be any better. So every morning I did my mask and after just 5 treatments the one on my nose never gave me any problems NONE it just kind disappeared and I never had to think about it again. My chin was completely CLEARED of any blemishes in 14 DAYS!!
|From 30 treatments to only 3 left.|
By day 20 I saw something try to break out on my cheek and the next day on day 21 by the end of the night I saw nothing again. Old acne scars started to get really light especially the ones on my chin that are problem area. I did get even one pimple on my forehead which was a miracle in itself. The true test came by day 25 when my time of the month happened. I thought that this was never going to work I always get a pimple or two I look in the mirror and NOTHING no zit not a white head not a black head NOTHING! In fact my skin is SMOOTHER than ever. I have no pain from the awful breakout that I would get, no ugly bumps to cover up with concealer and the little red bumps that I have had on my cheeks since I can remember are GONE! My combination skin of oily at times or way to dry at other times has just become normal to the touch. After 30 day of just 15 minutes a day I no longer needed my tube of concealer or blotting papers for the oil my skin seemed to produce! The illuMask made me have clearer skin then ever!
I LOVE THE ILLUMASK & I GIVE IT A 5 $$$$$ ON THE FACT THAT IT WORKS! IT WORKS LIKE NOTHING I HAVE EVER SEEN BEFORE AND I HAVE TRIED IT ALL! WHERE WAS THIS 12 YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND EVEN MORE SELF CONCIOUS?!(being older yes I am wiser and have learned to cover the acne better than when I was younger but people are mean when your young and when your older and struggle with acne I know they are just thinking it girl get your acne under control your not 15 anymore I know they think this because I looked in the mirror and thought it about myself) THE ILLUMASK HAS GIVEN ME MY LIFE AND MY SELF-ESTEEM BACK TO BE ACNE FREE IS AMAZING AND JUST AWESOME! I USE LESS MAKEUP AND SOMETIMES NONE AT ALL NOW! LIGHT THERAPY FOR 30 DOLLARS IS SO WORHT IT! YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOU TRY IT! DERMATOLOGISTS HAVE USED IT FOR DECADES IN THEIR OFFICES AND NOW YOU CAN USE IT EVERYDAY FOR 15 MINUTES A DAY AT 1 DOLLAR A TREATMENT! I MUST MENTION THAT 7 DAYS AFTER I STOPPED USING THE ILLUMASK I HAD A SMALL BREAKOUT ON MY CHIN SO I IMMEDIATELY DID REORDER THE ILLUMASK!
