    Found the product actualy did help clear my skin after a week or so of daily use. However, I hate having to wait around for 10 minutes while the mask runs.

      Comments about illumask Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask:

      As someone who's struggled with acne for decades, I am willing to try just about anything. So when I found the illumask on clearance, I purchased two. I used the mask each night upon going to bed, and found the experience to be quite relaxing: Just pop it on before going to sleep, remove it once the light goes off, then apply a dab of moisturizer. The results were pleasing, though not amazing enough to pay full price for another illumask.

      While I personally can't say I believe in miracle products, and doubt any OTC could deliver "clinically proven...results (better) than leading prescription drugs," I do believe using Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask by illumask is good for my skin.

      Comments about illumask Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask:

      Although it is difficult to find 15 daily to wear the mask (I really can't do much of anything while wearing it but sit and wait), it has worked for me! The combination of lights has really reduced blemishes. I have been using the masks for a little over two months and seen results.
      It costs basically a dollar a day, and has never dried out my skin the way acne topicals have.

            Comments about illumask Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask:

            I read about this mask in a magazine and was really skeptical about it actually working but I figured I would give it a try since I've been breaking out recently. I figured that at basically a dollar a treatment ($30 for 30 treatments), it wasn't a bad investment.

            Let me just begin by saying this - my acne isn't terrible. However, I never used to break out and since turning about 26/27, my skin has been a pain. I use Proactive and notice breakouts that other people don't see when I have makeup on. Therefore, I can't speak to how well this would work for someone who has fairly bad breakouts. It's not recommended for severe acne sufferers.

            I used this mask every day for a month. Since it's fairly difficult to do anything while wearing it (it's hard to see even with the hole cut into it), I would shower and then lay back down for 15 minutes before starting my morning routine.

            I noticed a difference after about 10 days of use. My face wasn't as red and neither were the few pimples that I did have. I found myself using less foundation and not reaching for my concealer as much. I feel that my skin really cleared up and I observed a definite difference.

            The only drawback is that the counter stopped working around day 10 - that would be the only reason I'm not giving this full marks. I could still vaguely see the numbers if I held it at a certain angle in the light. I wanted to make sure that I got the full treatments too so I counted every time I used it and I did get the full 30 treatments.

            Overall, I would definitely recommend this. It's affordable and really works. I was really happy with this product and plan on purchasing it again!

              The product shut down after having 13 more uses left. I emailed the website with no response. Will never buy again!!!!

              Comments about illumask Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask:

              I started using this daily and then dropped to 3 to 4 times a week. 27 I've had mild to moderate hormonal acne all through my 20s. I love the blue light therapy; it reduces my red skin, I have a lot less acme and I'm not using a many products, though I do still use a 5% benzoyl peroxide cream and moisturizer (which I was using before I tried this). Ive gotten 3 of these now and each one has gotten noticeably dimmer, especially on the second half, and the remote won't even show how many are left after 10. Overall, I think light therapy is great and this is the only mask I've found which is nice, but its just an overall cheap product and you probably won't get the full use.

                  I splurged on this because it was fairly affordable and I thought it would work. I used it for two weeks and had no difference in my acne, except that I had cystic breakouts on my chin that stopped when I returned the Illumask. Also 15min a day doesnt seem like a big deal until you start doing it, then its a pain.
