I bought an LED face mask – here’s what happened

My non-sponsored, unbiased review and results after using an LED face mask.

I’m a sucker for any wellness or beauty trend I see on social media. I’ve been seeing so many fellow influencers and content creators incorporate red light therapy in their beauty night routines and was immediately intrigued. I was definitely very skeptical at first but after doing my research, I finally decided to make the leap and purchase a red light therapy mask.

Keep reading to learn more about it and my (not sponsored) review of the mask I chose & my results!

Why I tried it

For context, I have eczema and highly sensitive skin and one of my top concerns is the amount of redness I have in my face. The redness has gotten much worse now that i’m in my 30’s and it wasn’t until I visited a dermatologist did I find out I actually have rosacea. 

She recommended I start taking antibiotics to treat the redness, which to be honest, didn’t sit right with me to have to take medication for it. I’ve heard of red light therapy and after reading that it’s the #1 treatment for sensitive skin, I decided to look into it.

What’s red light therapy?

Red light therapy is a natural, non-invasive treatment that uses low-level red light to improve the appearance of skin. It stimulates the production of collagen, reduces inflammation and redness, and reduces acne, scars, and wrinkles so your skin looks plumper and firmer.

What I chose

After doing my research, I decided to go with the Omnilux Contour Face mask. It all came down to these reasons:

  • SKIN CONCERN: Since my main concern was redness, I knew I didn’t need a mask that did both red and blue light (from what I understand, blue light treats more sun spots and acne)
  • FIT: I wanted a mask that’s flexible and flat and not those hard plastic ones. I read that flexible ones can mold to your face a little better and easier to travel with. The Omnilux mask has two straps so it fits closer to your face vs Currentbody (which was another contender I was looking into)
  • MASK STRENGTH: I can’t really talk in an educated manner on this topic, so read this blog post that does a way better job at explaining what to look for in an LED mask. But this mask was a little bit better compared to other flexible masks, especially with the price point.
  • PRICE: At around $400, the price was very reasonable compared to other masks in the market. I knew I didn’t want to spend too much on this at first since I’ve never tried it, so its a great mask if you’re looking to try out red light therapy without spending a ton.

My Results

Left image was taken January 2024 and the right was taken in May 2024 — and the results speak for itself!

I try to be consistent with using it 4x/week for 10 minutes each time. Not only did my redness noticeably decrease, but my skin looks much more glowy and even toned. I even notice when I do intense workouts my face gets way less red/flushed than before which is a bonus.

I was blown away because when looking at myself daily, it wasn’t noticeable. It wasn’t until I put these two pictures side-by-side did I really notice just how much my skin improved. 

The verdict

I think it speaks for itself that I 100% recommend this! It’s an investment but anything that is for your face, skin, or appearance is always worth it.

I hope this helps!!!
