      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.

              Comments about illumask Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask:

              I bought this mask for my teenager, who unfortunately has moderate acne problems. Though he is under a dermatologists care, his skin still wasn't getting clear after trying multiple Rx's. Then I heard about this mask. I liked that it is a light-treatment so nothing that gets absorbed or ingested. I have heard about light-therapy that dermatologists use before, which usually costs a lot of $$, so we decided to try this because of the low price. It comes out to a dollar a treatment. We saw improvements after just a few days. He has to do the treatment EVERY day though or skin redness/pimples will return.
              I took a star away because the mask will literally stop working after 30 treatments so you HAVE to buy another. I personally think this is the manufacturers way to keep us buying the product but since it works I will buy it again for my childs sake of having confidence and feel good about his skin.

                This mask changed my life. I'm 35 years old and all of a sudden got acne for the first time. I tried everything - expensive facials, dermatologist prescriptions, proactive. But within a couple days of using the mask I noticed my skin looking better without any drying effects of creams and medicine. It even brought blackheads to the surface that had been deep under my skin. I won't go anywhere without this mask now. I love it!

                  I have used a ton of anti acne products. Some would work at first then stop, others would have no effect, some would make it worse. I now use Bare Minerals exfoliating treatment cleanser day and night, and this mask for 15 minutes in the morning. I set my alarm, put it on and snooze for 15 more minutes, I find it difficult to do anything else while wearing the mask...even though they put eyeholes in it. I have purchased 4 of these masks, one did not work properly. the other 3 were great, I waited 3 months to review this, because I wanted to be sure it was as good as I thought it was. I noticed within a few days that new breakouts were clearing in a day or two, with in 2 weeks, my face was more radiant and less blemished. by the end of the 1st month, I didn't feel like I had to coat my face in makeup prior to leaving the house. My make up still looks as good at the end of the day as it does in the morning. I would recommend this to anyone who has not had any luck with anti acne treatments.

                    Using this mask as I'm typing this right now. I've only started using it yesterday, but even just after the first use, I noticed that the inflammation I had on my face was instantly soothed! I just use this as an addition to my skin routine (right after I cleanse, before I moisturize, etc.)
                    This is incredibly easy to use as all you have to do is put on the mask, and press the button to start. I just think the eyewear in the mask could be a tad more comfortable, but it's not a big deal. The mask lights up a bright light purple, and you may need a few seconds to rest your eyes after taking it off. A real keeper if you're dedicated to using it just 15 min a day (:

                    I use this daily, sometimes twice daily. I have seen a significant reduction in redness and my face. It also helps with existing acne. I am not sure if It prevents new acne from appearing- But I can assure you that it is worth the money if you have problems with redness from an RX cream or need to reduce inflammation or redness from zits.
