With all the new skincare technology out on the market, I’m always looking to try new things. One of the latest trends is using red and blue light therapy to treat acne. This new tool from Neutrogena uses both red and blue light therapy to combat acne, and is in convenient and small for-spot treatments!


Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask (

A few months ago, Neutrogena released the Light Therapy Acne Mask, which is a mask for the entire face that uses this red and blue light therapy. I was curious when this got released, but I hadn’t seen too much talk about it! This spot treatment device is about half the price, so I thought it would perfect to try out! It is 100% UV Free and FDA cleared. To use, you have to put the spot treatment over the blemish and turn it out. It runs for two minutes, and it states to use this up to three times on a day on the blemish.

I started using the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment as soon as I got my September Ulta order! I love how easy and convenient it is to use! On days where I didn’t wear any makeup, I was able to use this three times a day on certain blemishes, and I think it did help the healing process! It was a good way to stop using a ton of acne topical creams that can dry the skin out. However, after a week or two, I quickly realized that this device may not be for me! Unfortunately, I do suffer from quite a few breakouts, so I found that this spot treatment was a little tedious to use – especially for 2 minutes on every blemish! I definitely think if you suffer from more than just a spot here or there, that you need to go with the mask. I am definitely considering picking it up!

In all, I think this treatment actually does heal blemishes, and if you’re able to use it three times a day, it does speed up the process! Unfortunately, if you have more than just a couple of blemishes, this spot treatment can be come time consuming – which is why the mask may be a better option!
