Please raise your hand if you've been personally affected by stress acne? Yep. Me too. 

It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but all the shopping, eating, and traveling can leave me feeling depleted. As much as I try to stay zen, it's pretty hard and becomes apparent in the form of stress acne. Not a cute look since we all know cameras go into overdrive during the last few months of the year. So I'm super pumped to try out a new innovative product from Neutrogena!

Let's backtrack a little bit first. Remember a while back how celebrities were posting selfies wearing these insanely pricey white UV masks? Oh, how I lusted for a moment to be able to wear one! But without unlimited funds that moment seemed highly unlikely. (For reference, treatment could cost up to $500).

Enter Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask. It's like they heard me pining for an affordable version that would still offer me all the amazing benefits of UV masking. They made their patented Therapy Acne Mask readily accessible at Walmart's acne aisle so there's no need to save up or visit a dermatologist to get clear skin. You can do it all from the comfort of your home.

Now you're probably wondering what comes in every box?

Glad you asked! Each Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask box comes with the patented mask (which is chemical-free and FDA cleared) and a 1 month supply mask activator (the refill which you'll need to purchase monthly at $14.97). While you're in the aisle you should also pick up Clean & Clear® Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes. You'll want to use the mask only after cleansing your face for the best results.

How the mask works is that it targets and kills bacteria with light instead of harsh chemicals and leaves behind glowing skin instead. There are also two modes of action when using - a blue and red light. The blue light kills 99% of acne-causing bacteria and the red light reduces inflammation caused by acne.

The mask is pretty easy to use and forces you to sit and relax (me-time is always a good time).
- Clean your face of makeup, sweat, and debris using Clean & Clear® Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes
- Simply put on the mask
- Flip on the activator
- Enjoy your me-time for 10 minutes

  The Activator shown here has a handy countdown indicator and keeps track of how many uses you have left. PLUS, it keep track of your 10-minute sessions when in use. Cool right!

The mask is lightweight so if you rather wear it while doing an errand (washing dishes anyone?) - you can.

Results begin in a little as 1-week, so I'm taking the Neutrogena challenge and using this mask during the busiest time of the year for the next 30 days. I'll do a before and after image so you guys can see how the mask kept me acne-free.

Challenges are better in groups, so why not do it with me? Pick up the Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask at your local Walmart and keep me posted on your progress.
