Banishing blemishes no longer needs to involve squeezing, popping or multiple layers of concealer. A new handheld gadget that harnesses LED light technology is set to revolutionise the way you treat your acne.

Neutrogena’s Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment has received stellar reviews in the US since it launched there in July, and now it’s landed in the UK. And more importantly on our desks!

Channeling the same LED light technology found in Neutrogena’s  mask from the same range —it’s designed for use on specific spots, and it’s half the price so less of an investment if you only suffer from the occasional breakout. 

Designed to be used three times a day, blue light attacks acne-inducing bacteria, while the red light penetrates a little deeper to help extinguish inflammation.

 Stylist’s art director Natasha Tomalin-Hall was the first to roadtest it: “It was pretty easy to use – I held the pen over a persistent spot ,on the top of my makeup (you don’t need to use it on a  clean face) and left it there until the pen turned itself off- it shuts down automatically after two minutes so you don’t have to set a timer. A day later, the inflammation had gone completely, leaving just a little red mark. It definitely speeded up the lifespan of  my blemish so it’d be great if you had an important event coming up and needed to get rid of a spot fast.”  ”
