Viewer Review: Zeno Pro Acne Clearing Device

zeno.jpg

Thanks Katie for your honest review.

I have to tell you, I really wanted to love this product. I wanted it to work. Zeno is a hand held, battery charged acne clearing device that uses controlled heat applied directly to the blemish to kill the underlying bacteria. It certainly looks sleek, coming in either teal or hot pink and is about the size of a cell phone. After the initial 6 hour charge session to get it started, it takes just about a minute to heat up and beeps to let you know when to start and stop applying. A metal tip on the top device goes directly on your problem area. It felt soothing, and leaves the spot red for about an hour. Unfortunately, I saw no change in my blemish, despite the promise on the box that my pimple would be gone in 24-48 hours. The description informs that it is best for those underground pimples, the kind you can feel coming on before you see them. That is exactly what I had, a burgeoning bump under the skin with no head and no discoloration. I kept the product and tried it twice a day as directed for five days, and after seeing no change I returned it. The great thing about it is that Sephora (where I buy all my beauty must haves!) lets you return it, even used, as long you have all the components and the receipt within thirty days, and the company itself will give you your money back within thirty days if you mail it back. Everyone’s skin is different, so you may want to try it-after all, you CAN get your money back if you don’t like. It is pricey though, and it warns on the inside brochure that it does not treat cystic acne, blackheads, or whiteheads, so consider your primary reason for needing it before purchasing. I have learned my lesson though-there is no miracle cure for pimples. Sometimes you just have to wait it out.

Zeno Pro Acne Clearing Device

What it is:
Zeno™ is a hand-held, battery-powered medical device, cleared by the FDA, used to treat mild to moderate inflammatory acne pimples. Zeno works best when you first notice the signs of a new pimple. If used early, clinical trials have shown that pimples treated with Zeno can fade or disappear within just 24 hours. Just two to three treatment cycles of 2 1/2 minutes spread over 12 to 24 hours can help shorten a pimple’s life cycle.

What it does:
Zeno applies a precisely controlled heat dose directly to the pimple through a metal pad. One treatment lasts 2 1/2 minutes. Two to three treatments spread over 24 hours clear up most pimples quickly. It’s that simple.

What else you need to know:
The Zeno Pro has the highest usage capacity available without a prescription – double the number of uses of the original Zeno.

ModelCo Flutter Self-Adhesive Lashes

No more glue! ModelCo’s reusable, self-adhesive lashes don’t require any messy, old-fashioned glue! Flutter allows you to create the sexy lashes you’ve always wanted with a minimum of five uses per set thanks to the reusable adhesive strip.

ModelCo Tip: For the perfect application, place lashes as close to the baseline of your own lashes as possible. Hold the lash in place for a few seconds until the adhesive strip has a chance to hold. Apply dark eyeliner to camouflage the line of the fake lashes with your own, then coat lashes with mascara to blend for a flawless finish.
