illuMask – Based on scientific studies, the red and infrared wavelengths used in the Anti-Aging Mask can help increase cell turnover and repair and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Using illuMask is easy to use. First, cleanse your face with a normal cleanser. Then, you put on the mask and press the button on the controller. The mask will launch a 15 minute light therapy program. The treatment is totally silent – it just shines LED lights on your face.
The LED lights are specially designed to be safe to use around your eyes. However, the mask features sunglass-like eye covers to prevent annoying lights shining into your eyes with every therapy.
The mask offers a full-face coverage, extending from your forehead down to your jaw. Lights are timed automatically, so once the 15 minute session is over, the lights will turn off automatically and you can remove the mask.
The lights are the key feature with illuMask. The anti-aging mask uses LED lights to create red and infrared light. If you’re concerned about UV radiation, then you can relax because there is no UV light.
This one-step acne treatment covers your face and is easy to use at home.
1. Cleanse and dry your face.
2. Plug the Mask’s power cord all the way into the Activator. Ensure no silver metal on the plug is visible.
3. Put on the Mask like a pair of sunglasses.
4. Press the power button and hold it down for one full second until the lights power on.
5. Sit back, relax and enjoy your 10 minute treatment. You do not need to press the power button again – your Mask will automatically turn off after you finish the treatment.
Use the Neutrogena Mask every day for clearer, healthier skin.

• According to the manufacturer of illuMask, LED light therapy can “help repair skin damage from UV rays, eliminate acne-causing bacteria, and is even gentle enough to be used on newborn babies in the hospital to treat jaundice”.
• LED lights can be finely tuned to adjust the wavelength. The longer the wavelength, the deeper the penetration into the skin.
• “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has found that light therapy treatments can increase cellular growth by up to 200%”
• The acne mask employs red and blue light instead of the red and infrared lights used by the anti-aging mask. The red and blue light allegedly “work together to kill P. acnes bacteria and to heal inflammation from existing breakouts.” The red light energy penetrates more deeply into the skin to increase circulation and stimulate healing while the blue light energy reduces acne lesions on the surface of your skin.
• The mask is equipped with eye-protecting shades to ensure your eyes are never exposed to direct LED lights. That means you will not experience seizures or migraines after using the device.

Compare Reviews: illuMask vs Neutrogena Mask
– illuMask reviews complains that illuMask did absolutely nothing. Used it for about 3 months with absolutely no change. This is a huge gimmick.
illuMask does calm the face down – redness and irritation and is very relaxing but does not work on stopping acne. The blue lights stopped working after 15 uses.
illuMask caused face to break out worse than before. Instead of small minimal blemishes that would disappear in a couple of days, ended up with humongous painful cyst like bumps that took forever to shrink and go away. Very disappointed, but face got back to normal after two weeks of not using this anymore.
$60 for 30 days/ 1 treatment/ day is pretty expensive. The mask doesn’t work on acne at all.
After four uses, skin flaked and dried out for two weeks. Had to see a dermatologist because no cream would stop the skin from flaking or turning scaly. It was wretched to walk around with flaking skin or the appearance of soap scum around the mouth. The skin flaked a lot! illuMask is not good for those with combination skin. It is not supposed to work for cystic acne, but having flaking skin for two weeks is unacceptable.
illuMask is bulky, and it seemed that even with the eye protection, it didn’t cover the eye area well. illuMask started breaking down at the 7th time of use. The lights started going out at 18 uses and by15 uses there were 5 lights out.
The problem is that you have to buy the whole mask and battery pack every time.
Neutrogena Mask REVIEW
Neutrogena Mask reviews reveal that Neutrogena Mask is too small, and the lights seem to be concentrated on mouth area while missing entirely the top of the nose and sides of face! They need to redesign this. It would also be nice to have some more chin and neck coverage. The glasses leave a deep red mark on your nose from the weight of the mask.
Used Neutrogena Mask twice and resulted in weird spot on bridge of nose. Dermatologist said it was herpes from bacteria combined with the light therapy and said to immediately discontinue use. Dangerous according to the dermatologist.
Activator is a scam. Finished all cycles but they made no difference. Used this mask only for 5 days and there was a little red burn on the face and it start to have more pimples.
Pressed the On/Off button several times to start the treatment but the mask never worked. Tried changing the batteries and had the same results. The worst thing is that every time the button is pressed it was discounting the doses.
The light seems very weak Compared to dermatologist office treatments. It may or may not be effective in killing bacteria in your skin.
The “activator” is just a device that holds batteries and a timer. It does warm your face and make it a bit dry- that is it. The goggles do not keep the bright light out. The light is certainly too intense.
Lights are really strong and haven’t noticed a difference in the skin. The instruction booklet that came with the mask states that it’s for mild to moderate acne only. So if you have severe acne, do not waste your money on it.
If you’re wondering what an activator is – it’s a large, heavy, white timer and battery compartment. For lack of a better description, it’s about the size of 1.5 Twinkies, and it has a single power button, and a small digital readout. The only function is to count backward from 30, showing you how many of your 30 uses you have left. Each session is 10 minutes, which is set in stone, and cannot be changed. And there’s no way to continue using the “activator” past 30 uses, which is insulting.
