The Acne Diaries | Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask


Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask
If you watch my YouTube videos or you've read any of my other skincare blog posts, you'll know I definitely struggle with my skin. Ever since I've been an adult I've had the worst skin and so much acne and scarring. I've tried soooo many different brands of skincare from high street to high end and if I'm being completely and truly honest, nothing has helped. I honestly don't know why my skin is so horrendous, my diet isn't that bad - it's not perfect, but it's not as if I sit around eating pizza all day long. I always use nice skincare, I drink tons of water, I NEVER go to sleep with my makeup on and I wash my make up brushes regularly. I've honestly lost hope in ever having nice clear skin which is so sad, as I'm probably going to be worrying about my skin on my wedding day. I would love to actually go to a dermatologist, but I just can't afford that whilst planning a wedding and saving for a house! So all I can do is try out different skincare at home. My skin is probably the thing I'm most conscious about, so it's taken a lot to actually post up close and personal photos of my skin. I just think I need to actually track my skin and if any of the products I try actually work! So I think I'm going to start a new little series on my blog of before and after photo's after using new skincare products.

I've always used different skincare regimes like Proactive, Liz Earle, Clinique, Origins, La Roche Posay and so many others, but honestly I've never really seen a difference. I decided to try something different and saw the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask. The Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask uses LED light therapy used by dermatologist to treat acne. Now I don't know about the science of how this works, but I was willing to try something that dermatologists have been using for years, at home for a fraction of the price! You're supposed to wear this daily for just ten minutes and you should start seeing results after a week, but are recommended to use this for about 12 weeks to really notice a difference. The mask comes with a little activator that allows 30 uses. So once you've used all 30 uses, you have to then go and buy a new activator. Which seems a bit cheeky to me as essentially, this is just a remote to turn the lights on - but we'll get on to that later!
When I first used this I was expecting to feel something, but as it is just LED lights you really don't feel a thing on your skin at all. I love that it's chemical free as you know you're not putting anything on your skin that may irritate it. I actually really enjoyed wearing this for ten minutes out of my day. I found it easy to use and easy to wear (Simon found it very amusing as it does make you look like a storm trooper!). I usually just wear this as I'm watching YouTube. You can even use this multiple times a day but I decided I would wear this once a day as suggested.
Although I found the mask easy to wear and fit into my routine, I did notice the lights irritated my eyes whilst using it in the dark sometimes. I feel like they could have made more of an effort protecting your eyes, but this hasn't stopped me using this at all. I didn't notice a drastic improvement in my skin, until I actually looked at the before and after photo's!
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask Before & After
Obviously the lighting is different in these photos, but I can really tell a difference in my skin. It's not a miracle worker after 30 days for me, but it really has reduced my acne and the redness! Before this post, I was going to chuck this in the pile with my tried and tested but no results products, but I'm so impressed! This mask has gave me so much hope that with continual use, I may be able to improve my skin. As much as I'm really impressed with the mask, love using it and actually kind of enjoy wearing it - I was not impressed with the thought of having to buy a £14.99 applicator every 30 days just to turn the LED lights on, on the £40 mask I already own. Since I decided actually I am going to continue to use this mask, I decided to see if there was a way to make this more affordable. I managed to find a few hacks on YouTube so you can use the original applicator whenever you want! Now I'm not a DIY kind of person, so I did get Simon to do this for me. It only took him 10-15 minutes and now my mask turns on anytime I plug the applicator in. So I highly recommended researching this if you don't feel like wasting £15 a month when you don't need to. Now I can use the mask whenever I want, I've been using this twice a day and I can't wait to see if it will improve my skin even further!

Of course my skin is nowhere near clear, so I'm always open to try new products for my acne. I would love to know if you have any tips for me!
