I have reviewed Lumie Bodyclock Iris before Lumie are a great brand and I was thrilled to feature one of their products again. This time I was sent the Lumie Clear (RRP £149.99) to review; it claims to be a safe and natural way to relieve the symptoms of acne. Even at 37 I do have flare-ups and my skin can feel quite uncomfortable and painful. Having a clear face makes me feel more confident and as I do not like wearing much in the way of make-up (only for rare special occasions) I don’t feel I can even hide my acne from public viewing.
Mind you covering the problem with a thick layer of concealer isn’t going to get rid of it – only make it worse as the skin can’t breathe because the pores are all clogged up! I know my lifestyle plays a part in my breakouts, but I can’t give up cake (it keeps me sane!) and I know I don’t get enough sleep (blame Netflix, blogging and occasionally the boys!), so none of those things are going to change any time soon. The Lumie Clear seems a much more attractive option than trying to live without sugar in my diet!
I am using a stock picture of the product in use, hubbie did take some of me in action but my eyes were all squinted wearing the safety goggles (I think my darling husband adjusted them too tight!), so rather than inflict that picture on you this model shows the product being used much more appealingly.
My husband had particularly bad acne in his teens; his back is badly scarred from the experience, as he did not go to the doctor to get help in time. I know he feels conscious of it especially if we go swimming (and would prefer to keep a t-shirt on). I think he would have really benefited from the acne light treatment. Even now years on it could well reduce the scars so we will be testing it out on him in the months to come.
Using the device did not hurt, the light was very bright however I did wear the safety goggles and did my best not to look directly into the pinkish glow. It is not an instant solution to your acne woes but a steady process over a longer period (within four weeks you should see a real difference). If you make it part of your daily routine you will see results, but you have to dedicate that small amount of time each day to follow through with the treatment.
A big pro about the Lumie Clear is that it has a automatic timer that switches it off after 15 minutes so you can easily keep check regarding how long you have been using the product. If it works for you, it would also mean you do not need to rely on medication to treat your acne, which can only be a good thing.
