You can have acne light therapy at home with the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask. This is how it works...

So with a recent birthday I found myself even closer to reaching the age of 40. I know some people freak out on birthdays but, in truth, I just wanted to play black-light mini golf and eat a fancy seafood supper and have my Mr. Rob pay the tab. The idea of getting older doesn’t really bother me but I have to admit that I was a bit happy when Rob informed me that I am actually a whole year younger than I thought I was :) I’m so bad with numbers, even my own age!

With getting older I’m rocking more and more white hair (because my hair doesn’t understand gray, apparently, we go right to the white) and since I smile, like, a lot, I have got these insane laugh lines. Sure you can call them wrinkles but I much prefer calling them out as something that has happened because I’ve got a pretty happy life. That’s something to be thankful for and proud of, I think.

I always thought that as I aged I could put certain things behind me, like acne. During adolescence and my early adulthood I was super lucky. I had just a handful of zits in my entire life and I didn’t quite understand what all the fuss was about. Friends would ask what soap I used to wash my face (whatever was in the shower) and early in my working career I often got many compliments on my clear, pale skin. 

One day things sort of went to heck in a hand-basket. I woke up in terrible pain and found myself having my gallbladder removed. I don’t know why or how but this seemed to be a turning point, or the point at which my body decided to turn against me! Suddenly I had new health problems to deal with and, BOOM! Acne.

Because I was lucky enough as a teen to not have acne I have the problem of not really knowing how to deal with it now that I’m in my 30’s and it SUCKS. I’ve learned, for the most part, how to cover my imperfections with makeup and from a distance you can’t really tell what’s what.

I can tell you what one of my big, BIG problems are that exacerbate my condition is… I can’t seem to stop touching my face. And as I do, throughout the day I’m removing the makeup that hides my trouble spots and adding fuel to the fire. I’ve been told “STOP TOUCHING YOUR FACE!” But I’ve found it’s a vicious cycle for me… I get acne and, without thinking, I mess with it and it makes me break out even more around the initial problem spot and makes the one blemish even worse and everything gets angry, red and way more noticeable.

I’ve tried lotions and potions and wonder cures and nothing has really worked for me. I’m at the point where I’m literally willing to try just about anything. I had heard about light therapy from my dermatologist but treatments were not covered by insurance and they were expensive. Like, I want to say $500 a treatment, maybe? Whomp, whomp. So I was pretty stoked when I realized that I could do light therapy at home every day and with very little hassle. In fact, we’ll discuss how little hassle in just a bit…

So this is my set up… I’ve got some makeup dissolving facial cleansing wipes and my Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask .

These are both available in the acne section at Walmart. It took me a minute to locate it, but for me my items were in the cosmetics area of the store.

And this is my gig… Every night I’m going to rid my face of any makeup and whatnot with Clean & Clear® Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes. I won’t be using any kind of cleansers with Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Adapalene, or anything like that in it because the mask compounds their effects and it’s not good for the skin.

On a side note, these little wipes EVEN get rid of waterproof mascara and they are Maybelline (my kitty) approved :) Huzzah!

Then I’ll be wearing the mask for 10 minutes and it’s supposed to treat my acne in a way that it heals itself helping to lessen or eliminate these embarrassing breakouts. And since nearly 100% of testers of the mask showed fewer breakouts in 12 weeks, with some even showing fab results after only a SINGLE week, I’m pretty stoked about my chances.

But how does it work? The mask emits red and blue lights that will heal my skin from the inside out.

AND you can actually see the light. For some reason I thought it would be this invisible light and I’d sit there wondering, is there really even any light? But it actually shines red and blue (turning into purple) so you can SEE the light that is working. Now that blue light will kill 99% of acne-causing bacteria and the red light will help reduce the inflammation of the acne I’m currently dealing with.

Yes, it looks like I’m taking up welding, but I swear I’m not!

Putting on the mask is like slipping on a pair of sunglasses with a huge, weird thing attached. But you seriously just slide the “glasses” on and then the mask rests on your face ready to rock.

A push of the power button on the Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask Activator and the lights come on and stay on for 10 minutes and shuts off when it’s time so you don’t have to remember a timer or anything. Now see how there is a number there? You start of with 30 uses of the mask and the number ticks down each time it is used. Once used up you can purchase a refill 30-day activator, also at Walmart for $14.97. At 50 cents a day it’s far more affordable than treatments at the dermatologist.

Now isn’t that just the most dapper thing you’ve ever seen? Ha! When Rob first saw it he said I looked like an alien and the animals were all totally obsessed with it. Now I found the mask to be a bit awkward at first because you just aren’t used to having something like this on your face. Or, at least, I’m not. But within a few minutes I found that I was totally comfortable. And since there is a slot you can see out of you can even do other things. What other things you might ask? Well, Rob and I were interested in what I could accomplish!

I started off reading a book in bed but that wasn’t anything too special so I went about my already scheduled tasks for the evening.

I gave the bathroom a quick one over…

…I fed the cats…

…and I headed to my computer to get a little work done. Granted the mask only goes for 10 minutes so it didn’t stay on terribly long while I worked BUT I was able to do these things without worrying about the mask coming off so it didn’t change the course of my day and I don’t have to FIND 10 minutes just to sit around and treat my acne. Boom. Love it.

So that’s where we are at, folks. I’ll keep using my Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask  for the next 28 days and I’ll report back. Want to play along? Grab your own at Walmart and let’s see how this goes!

Hopefully THIS will be a thing of the past for me! Gotta tell you, I’m pretty stoked!
