I’ve decided to combine this review of the Skin Inc brand, their laser and skincare to give my readers a better overview of the products.
Let’s start by describing what this is. The Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light is a hand held-at home device that combines the power of NASA-inspired LED Chromotherapy and Low Frequency Stimulation to tackle multiple skin issues for younger looking skin. There are 5 lights that tackle a variety of skin issues.
Red reduces the appearance of fine lines
Blue soothes and calms skin and stops excess oil production
Yellow revives dull skin
Orange tackles pigmentation dullness and fine lines and wrinkles
Purple ideal for skin congestion and anti aging.
Those are some big shoes to fill with all this product promises. And the website also lists a slew of studies that include such statistics like 85% of users find skin looks younger. So this product claims to do a lot.
To use, you turn on the device and apply the metal probe to your skin for ten minutes. Using circular motions and upward motions to massage the skin gently. You can choose one light or any combination of the lights. I rotated between all 5 lights at two minutes each.
The company also recommends using a water based serum or mask for the best results. Like their mask or peels. That’s where this becomes a combination review.
The company has several “base” products and separate vitamins and extracts you mix together to to create your own custom skincare. There’s a wide range of vitamin supplement offerings, from licorice serum for acne to ceramide serums for dry skin.
I found a set on sale at Nordstrom Rack. It included the Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask and three serums. Licorice Serum and Green Tea extracts to protect and repair dry skin. French Pine Bark Serum with antioxidants to protect skin from environmental stresses and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And vitamin C serum to reduce the appearance of pores and better balance the oiliness of skin.
The Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask is hyped as a unique sleep-in transparent gel mask that hydrates, clarifies, and brightens the skin. With extracts from the nutrient rich Okinawa deep sea water of Japan, soybean extracts and hyaluronic acids. 98% of users found their skin to be more supple and hydrated.
Ok, so that’s a little information about the products. So what were my Results?
I tried the Machine for two months almost daily. At first, I tried it with no gels or creams whatsoever. That failed because there was not enough slip to glide over my face. I then tried it with my moisturizer but also didn’t find enough slip to glide over my skin. I finally settled on using tea tree oil to get the machine to glide over my face easier. My results? Nothing. I didn’t notice any reduction of wrinkles or better looking skin or less acne.
I took a look at all the rave reviews and thought maybe I should use it with the actual products. Hence the second half of my combined reviews actually using the serums and masks that Skin Inc recommends.
First off you need quite a bit of the mask to get enough slippage on the skin and it still kinda dries midway. The mask left my skin a little tacky, so I only left it on for the recommended 30 minutes a day. I used all my serums in a variety of ways. One day each separate drops and one day combined serums. You name it I tried it. Kinda fun playing mad scientist but it also took time. Tried the laser with the serums and mask for another month.
So what were my final results using the machine and the recommended products? Still nothing. No results at all. I was pleasantly surprised the products did not break out my acne prone skin. But I just didn’t enjoy the feeling on my skin. The products left a sticky residue. I left it on the required half hour and then washed it off. Although it was easy to glide the laser all over my fave, I didn’t notice any reduction of wrinkles or skin clarity.
So my end review is that the Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light is a waste of $175. My review of the deep sea hydrating mask and vitamins were also a waste of money. My skin doesn’t look any better. I would skip this brand!
