FOREO ESPADA Blue Light Acne Treatment Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I am a big fan of FOREO, and think that their devices are just brilliant. I recently tested the FOREO ESPADA Blue Light Acne Treatment device, and I was thoroughly impressed by its efficacy. I should preface this by stating that I do not have acne, but I do periodically have tiny breakouts from hormones or from a negative reaction to products that I test. As luck would have it, soon after I received the ESPADA I had a  negative reaction to something, or some combination of products that I was testing and that resulted in a few uncomfortable pimples. I usually just spot-treat with a clay mask or targeted treatment for breakouts, but I decided to try this instead, and it worked quite well! In fact, my breakouts had noticeably reduced in size and redness after a single treatment, and were gone after a couple of treatments. 

After you wash and dry your face, you simply turn on the ESPADA™ and aim it so that your pimple is in the center of the light. The Blue LED light and proprietary T-Sonic™ pulsations automatically activate once the device is in contact with the skin. You only have to hold the device on your pimple for 30 seconds, and the built-in timer will pulse to let you know that you are finished. You can treat the same pimple up to four times, if you need to, or you can move onto the next one.

Colors: Magenta, Cobalt Blue and Pink

When you first unpack your FOREO ESPADA, you will need to download the FOREO App on your phone to register and unlock your device, and then you will need to charge it. It is very easy to do, and registering only takes a few minutes. Additionally, you activate your 2 year warranty when you register your device.

According to FOREO,

The blue light promotes blood circulation and skin renewal, eliminating acne-causing bacteria.

SUPERIOR HYGIENE: Medical-grade silicone ensures the highest professional-level quality of the device and prevents bacteria transfer during treatment.

STEP 1 (Prep): Before using ESPADA™, make sure your skin is clean & dry. For best results, we recommend using LUNA™ to cleanse your face.
STEP 2 (Target): Turn on ESPADA™ by pressing the universal button, and aim it so your blemish is in the center of the precise targeting light.
STEP 3 (Treat): Blue LED light & T-Sonic™ pulsations will activate once the device makes contact with the skin. Hold the device on the blemish for 30 seconds, until the built-in timer pulses.
STEP 4 (Terminate): Treat the same blemish up to 4 times within one treatment, or move the device to another blemish you wish to treat.

Overall Assessment: If you only periodically have a pimple here or there, then you really don't need this device. However, if you have monthly hormonal breakouts, acne or blemish-prone skin, then this device is absolutely worthy of your consideration.

  1. I'm a big fan of beauty devices, particularly from Foreo as I have a luna and it has lasted me almost a decade at this point! Does anything electronic last that long anymore? LOL I'd trust the foreo tool, they make good things. Right now I'm trying an at-home Radio Frequency device (another brand) than i hope gives good results!

    1. I agree with you about FOREO, Claudia! I have had nothing but excellent luck with their products, and they definitely last and last and last! Most electronic devices no longer appear to be built to last, but that isn't true of FOREO in my experience! I am looking forward to your review of the Radio Frequency device that you are currently testing!

  2. While I personally don't need an anti-acne device, I conducted market research on a blue light anti-acne device about 10 years ago, and they absolutely do make a difference. FOREO is such a trusted skincare device brand that I will definitely recommend their Blue Light device to those who can benefit from it

    1. There certainly is no need for you to try this, but it is wonderful for people who have periodic breakouts or acne!

  3. This is such a great company. I'd buy this if I had the need for it.

    1. FOREO really is an incredible company, Marcia! While I don't have acne, this zaps pimples when I do have a have the occasional pimple or two.
