Strange and Weird Beauty

As a self-obsessed blogger/20 something, it’s clear I spend a lot of time thinking about ways to be… well… superficially better. I’ll try anything once if it promises results. However, I’ll admit it – lately, I’ve been majorly slacking on my maintenance. Working, training for my half, focusing on my volunteer work… and a regimented beauty routine?! Life is hard folks.


Enter some of the major perks of being a blogger. PR people email me on the reg about new products and why I should try them. ENTER THE ILLUMASK. I could not even pass up this weird and crazy device that can help clear pores, reduce blemishes and rid blackheads allllll through light therapy. For $30, you can work your way to better clearer skin just once a day for a 15 minute session. 


I slapped this sucker on and went to town. Here’s the deal – I have pretty nice skin. I wish I had this bad boy when I was going through puberty and slathering my face in Clearasil. Nevertheless, I love it. JPC couldn’t resist giving it a go either. I’m going to continue using it and report back, because I do have some nasty blackheads that need to be remedied. Already I’m seeing a more even tone, which for something that is under $50, is awesome – I’ve used way more expensive product that does nothing, so already this is a win. Stay tuned.

They also offer an anti-aging device, using the same type of LED technology, if you’re interested. I’d love to hear your thoughts! Have you used light therapy to treat your skin?
