TRIA Beauty – The Skin Perfecting Blue Light Review

TRIA Beauty - Blue Light

Lucky me! Not too long ago I got my hands on the TRIA Beauty Skin Perfecting Blue Light device. While I haven’t often ventured into device-based acne fighting products, I was pleasantly surprised at the results and the ease of use. A description lifted from their site:


As the weather changes, so does your skin. Thankfully the Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light is here to keep blemishes at bay. The Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light clears acne quickly and helps prevent future breakouts. Results are comparable to the leading acne prescription. The Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light delivers the same levels of blue light therapy found in the doctor’s office and is FDA-cleared. Unlike other at-home acne treatments, The Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light treats the very source of acne: bacteria. By targeting acne-causing bacteria, the Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light eliminates clogged pores, pimples and breakouts.


The device operates using cartridges that provide time – each one lasting approximately two months with consistent usage (5 minutes a day). It’s gentle, has a warming sensation (which it claims means it’s working) and is fairly effortless.

Here’s the breakdown:

As I gazed at row upon row of countless brushes in all sizes, shapes and colours a million thoughts ran through my head.

“A stippling brush? Dual ended something-something? Kabuki brush? I could’ve sworn Kabuki was some form of Japanese drama…”

For a long time I had only used the free brushes that came with my makeup products. But ladies the truth is that your makeup is only as good as the brush it’s applied with.

I decided to get serious and research the brush market far and wide to come up with a list of the 10 makeup brushes every woman should have in her makeup bag. So without further ado and in no particular order, here they are:

It’s limited edition and it’s spectacular. Loose Button’s summer Luxe Box is a delight. With its thick cardbox stocked box, stellar products that have been curated, and personal touch…this is the box to subscribe to. Here’s the rundown of the products:

My favourites are definitely the Purity Face Wash (it’s a one stop shop for facewash + toner), as well as the Cake Heavy Cream (smells like icing, perfect for a girl who quit sugar, ugh).
