Last month I mentioned I was going to take the Tria Blue Light for a test run:

I used the Tria system for the few weeks leading up to vacation and last week after we got back (I forgot to pack it for the trip… among other things).

I’ve been very happy with the results, especially since Aunt Flow decided to tag along with us at the very beginning of our vacation, so having used it the weeks leading up to that point, it (happily) thwarted my usual break-outs during that time, leaving me with a clear complexion. Without the Tria and the blue light therapy, I would have been annoyed with the standard breakouts that accompany Aunt Flow’s visits without fail.

I definitely recommend this treatment system to anyone that has an acne problem, or even just the occasional breakouts like I get that can be very annoying.  The unit itself is a bit pricey, and each digital card lasts for 300 treatments which means replacing the card for a nominal fee, but overall those that make regular visits to the dermatologist this would definitely be a big savings in the long run.  Not to mention it’s so convenient and easy to do the treatments in the privacy of your own home.  That’s always a plus.

Does Aunt Flow bring you breakout gifts when she visits you each month like she does me, no matter what your age?
