Rated 4 out of 5 by from Godsend for those with acne-prone skin I'm in my 20s but still experience periods of breakouts on my face. Although I have a comprehensive skincare regimen (exfoliation, cleansing, topical medications), nothing seemed to help my breakouts. That is, until I picked up this gadget from Kohl's. First for some basics on this system. There are 40 blue LED lights on the head of this device. The device does have an automatic shutoff to prevent overheating, but in order to trigger the automatic shutoff you have to keep the device on for at least ten minutes without turning it off. So far, I've only had that happen once. There is no built-in timer, so you have to time how long you have kept the device on the treatment area yourself. When you apply the light to your face (about 1/4 of an inch from your skin), you feel a gentle, relaxing warmth. It doesn't ever feel hot. When I use this system, I keep the head of the device in one place for 3-5 minutes at a time. In areas where I tend to break out more (my "t-zone"), I keep the light on longer. I start with the left side of my forehead, move to the center of my forehead, then to the right side of my forehead, then my nose, then my upper right cheek, lower right cheek/chin, center of my chin, lower left cheek/chin, and finally, upper left cheek, for a total of nine treatment areas. The whole process takes me about 30-35 minutes. Since you have to wear goggles during the process (included in the package--they're identical to tanning goggles), I usually find something on TV that is fun to listen to without requiring me to watch what is happening. I go through this process five days a week. I have had this device for about three weeks and am in love, despite not seeing any immediate results. I used the device religiously on one particularly bad breakout area when I first picked it up, and it did not clear up any faster than it would just using my typical topical medications. That said, after about a week I noticed fewer and fewer breakouts. A week after that, I noticed my pores looked substantially smaller. Now that it's three weeks since my purchase, my skin is so clear. I have the occasional, teeny tiny whitehead pop up, but those disappear in a day or two (nothing concealer can't cover immediately). This pales in comparison to the breakouts I had been seeing. The device has successfully cleared up the breakouts without over-drying my skin, which was a common problem while using topical medications exclusively. So would I recommend the reVive Acne Light Therapy Handheld System? Absolutely. It is a very affordable option for those facing frequent breakouts because it can be used over and over again. It's also incredibly effective. My only minor complaint is that the whole process is really time-consuming--trying to find half an hour five days a week to use this can be a feat sometimes. The process does take longer from having to constantly pick up my phone to re-set the timer between treating each of the nine areas of my face. It'd be a nice feature to have a built-in timer to let you know when it's time to move to the next treatment area. Long story short, if you're like me and suffer from frequent breakouts, and topical medications are not working or are just making your skin extremely dry, this device is a must-try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I purchased this a few months ago and it has had a positive effect on my acne. The instructions say to use it for at least 3 minutes over each area, but I find it most effective to use it much longer than that, maybe more like 10 minutes. I use it before bed, after I've washed my face and applied all my skincare products. I hold the light up to my face - usually only my chin and cheeks because that's where my breakouts are - and hold it with one hand while I watch a movie or browse the internet with my other hand. I find I get the best results with this if I use it at least 4 days a week, though every day is better. If you don't have time every day, definitely do longer sessions. reVive also makes a light head with red lights for anti-aging. If you already have the handle you can buy the head only and switch them on and off. The heads just twist in and they are very easy to change. I also highly recommend buying this unit from Kohl's because of their easy return/exchange policy and discounts. I know that sounds like advertisement, but I shopped around for acne light therapy devices A LOT before I found this one at Kohl's and this is the best deal around, at the time of this review. This also much more cost effective than that blue light mask that sits on your face because that one has a limit to 30 uses before it stops working (such a scam). This one just plugs into an outlet so you can use it until it wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't remember my skin ever looking this clear. As a test, I spent one week using this heavily on just one side of my face, to compare and see if it was actually making a difference. And yes it is! The acne is clearing up slowly and is less prevalent, but I'd say that the biggest improvement was in the texture of my skin - I thought I naturally had slightly bumpy skin, but even after 1-2 weeks of use, the one side of my face looks so smooth and clear! Well worth the cost (especially considering how expensive some acne creams can get), great for dry/sensitive skin, and helpful for those with mild, inflammatory but stubborn acne. The one thing I'd dock a point for is the eye protector - it's really uncomfortable, so I've been closing my eyes and/or using a sleep mask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS!!!!! I decided to try this on my teenage brother who was visiting for the holiday. He had a moderate, angry red, inflamed pimple on the right temporal area of his face. He said just would not go away. I administered the light on Saturday then on Sunday. On Monday, the area was no longer raised, red, or painful. It is rapidly drying out and almost totally healed! AMAZING!!!! Worth every penny...
