Thanks to the new normal of social distancing and homecations, in-home beauty treatment devices are here to stay. LED masks are on many people’s radars these days, and it seems that none are getting quite as much buzz as the Cellreturn LED Platinum Mask. The product is difficult to miss. Legions of top-tier K-celebs, including Kang So-ra, Park Seo-joon , and Lee Min-ho , apparently swear by it. It’s even been featured on Lee’s popular K-drama The King: Eternal Monarch . The fact that it looks like a rose-tinted Stormtrooper helmet and promises the return of epidermic youth makes it all the more alluring. So in reality, is the mask gold or just a gimmick? I tested it for four weeks to find out. Alvin Goh on why modern men shouldn’t shy away from beauty products What the mask does The technology behind the Cellreturn LED mask is nothing new. Light-based skin therapy is clinically proven to work and many dermatologists use light skincare treatments to boost skin health. What makes the Cellreturn mask unique is that it’s obviously convenient – no spa visits needed! Then there’s the fact that it comes with a whopping 1,026 LED lights that cycle three light wavelengths: red (and near-infrared), blue, and pink. The red light helps your skin produce more collagen, appear brighter, and minimise blemishes. The blue light soothes easily irritable skin. The pink light, meanwhile, helps to reduce scarring.

The recommended duration per daily session is up to 20 minutes, though you should first ask your dermatologist’s advice before usage. Take note that you should never use it on bare skin; a layer of serum post-cleansing will do the necessary cushioning. The mask’s fast mode is a godsend on extra busy days. Lasting for nine minutes, the quick session starts with seven minutes of the red light, followed by a minute each of blue and pink.

But it did not smooth out my fine wrinkles as I’d hoped. I know the mask promises smooth skin at the push of a button, but the result of your usage will truly depend on your genetic make-up. Now, if you’re a frequent jet-setter, then the mask is probably not the best idea, as it takes extra space and maintenance to take it with you. But as the recent health pandemic has proven, beauty starts at home. So if homebound sustainability is your new mantra, then this mask may just be your best investment yet. The Cellreturn Platinum LED Mask is priced at US$2,100. Want more stories like this? Sign up here . Follow STYLE on Facebook , Instagram , YouTube and Twitter .
