ZENO where art thou?

ZENO where art thou?

Back in 2008 I bought this lovely device for it’s promises of helping to get rid of spots in a more humane and friendly way instead of using harsh spot treatments that can dry out your skin. Even though everyone said it looked like I was holding a mobile phone to my face as I was using it, it did indeed work. It lessens the redness of big spots as it ‘cooks’ the bacteria inside making your spot appear smaller in a few days. Unfortunately ZENO has it’s limits. It doesn’t work on whiteheads or blackheads and I’m lead to believe that people with severe cystic acne might find this difficult to use. Here lies the problem.

Just to recap, I bought ZENO in 2008. I think I’ve used it about 30 times and that is a generous estimate. So why haven’t I used it that much? Well since I bought it I realised I really don’t get the kind of spots that ZENO treats on a regular basis. Now obviously this is a good thing so I’m not complaining but I was just wondering how many other people have found themselves in this situation. ZENO has brought out several different models since and it the device itself has gotten smaller and cheaper. American retailer Target sells the ZENO Hot Spot for $34.99. I’ve never seen a ‘hot spot’ device on sale here in the UK but I also haven’t been looking. So do you think the Clarisonic has replaced the ZENO?

Have you bought the newer models of the ZENO? I would love to hear from you!

Hi Nicoletta! This does work but I think unless you get alot of large really red spots that don’t break the surface then it will take a while for this to pay for itself. I got it mine for £99 at Boots and I don’t think they even sell it anymore. It’s probably been more of hit in the US. x
