Foreo Espada, does it really work?

I am a big fan of Foreo since getting the Luna, I have the original cleansing device and have been using it for over 3 years and I’m still a massive fan. I was very excited when I first heard about the Foreo Espada, it uses blue light technology to kill acne-causing bacteria and also promotes blood circulation and skin renewal.
The device uses the dual power of laser-focused blue LED light and T-Sonic™ pulsations to blast blemishes out of existence. I mean, that claim alone was what sold the device to me.

So I did a bit of research to find out how blue light really works. As we all know, acne can be caused by a whole variety of things like diet or hormones, but the process is basically the same. Bacteria and dead skin cells trap excess sebum in pores, your skin becomes red and inflamed, resulting breakout. Nice!

Blue light technology has the ability to kill the bacteria it comes in contact with, more precisely,  3 exposures of blue light can kill up to 99.99% of acne-causing bacteria without damaging your skin. That means it doesn’t cause skin irritation or redness. The only problem with is that blue light can't penetrate that far down into the skin meaning, it might not be able to get to the root of the problem.

The Espada is said to take aim at your blemishes with the same powerful beam of 415 nm blue LED light used by dermatologists for professional treatments but at a fraction of the cost. The device is equipped with laser-focused cross hairs and T-Sonic™ pulsations, targeting pimples, clogged pores and blackheads.

The device is really easy to use, you just need to press the centre button to activate and point it at the blemish. The blue light and sonic pulsations will activate on skin contact and the treatment will last for 30 seconds. You can repeat the treatment up to 4 times in the same area.

The device in its self is quite cool, its lightweight and portable, the battery lasts a fair amount of time (about 50 uses). It’s made out of soft silicone, therefore, it's extremely gentle, and prevents the spread of bacteria from spot to spot. It’s also a 100% waterproof even though the device is more effective when used on clean dry skin.

That sounds nice but, does it really work?
In my opinion, it’s very expensive taking into account the results delivered. I might have had really high expectations before purchasing the device, I did kind of think spots would be dramatically reduced overnight and that was not the case. I do see improvement after using it but the change is so small I sometimes wonder if that’s due to the device or just my skin naturally healing itself. It also doesn’t help reduce acne scarring which is a shame. It’s also a bit time consuming if you have a fair amount of spots as the area it covers in really small, it only targets on spot at a time. Now that I have it, I do use it but if I could turn back time, knowing what I know now, I don’t think I would purchase the device.

  1. That's a shame you don't think this was worth picking up. I mean, given the price it's not something you would want to be disappointed with, but you're right that considering the size you can only target one blemish at a time, so people who have severe acne who are most likely to benefit from this would probably find it pretty time consuming to use.

  2. I've never heard of this before but it sounds really good and useful.

  3. I've never tried out any cleansing tools (except for a more affordable alternative version of the clarisonic) but I can't justify the hefty price tags on something I don't see myself using often or using it for a while and then getting sick of it.

  4. The claims are pretty epic and it's a shame that this device hasn't lived up to expectations, as it does sound promising!xo
