It’s no secret that I love testing out facial devices and the latest one to land on my desk is the LED Eye Perfector by CurrentBody. I’ve been testing it out for the last few weeks so I wanted to give you an overview of how it works. I’ll be back to update in a few months to give my honest opinion on the ongoing results.
But first, if you only came for the discount code, I gotcha. The code is JOANNE and it will get you 20% off the entire CurrentBody LED range. So although I’m focusing here on the Eye Perfector, you could also use it on any of the devices for the face, neck or lips. Check out the whole range here.
CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector – what is it?
This is an award-winning LED light therapy treatment designed to improve fine lines around the eye area. The mask contains 80 professional-strength LED bulbs, Four LED wavelengths act to stimulate collagen production and improve elasticity, dark circles, and eye bags.
The device cycle runs for 3 minutes before switching itself off. It’s recommended that you use it 6 times a week. Expect to see results from around 8 weeks in. At the time of writing I have been using it for almost 4 weeks.
The Eye Perfector won the COSMOPOLITAN Best Skin Innovation of 2022 Award, which is pretty impressive. Personally I would award it the hotly-contested title of Most Daffy Facial Device Joanne Has Worn Around the Office.
As my husband commented – This is how the Cybermen started.
I kind of love how space age it looks though. When I was a little girl I thought we would all look like this in the 21st century.
Plus, it’s incredibly relaxing to use. Just lie back, switch on the silver button on the side and let it do its thing. Pop a podcast on, you won’t get bored.
The part of the mask that’s in contact with the face is made of soft silicone, and unlike microcurrent devices, with an LED device you don’t need to add a conductor gel or anything else to protect the skin. I’ve been using the eye cream that’s included, but that’s totally optional.
- CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector device
- CurrentBody Skin Green Tea Eye Cream (£15 to buy separately and a very nice eye cream to boot)
- Storage Bag
- USB Charger – a charge lasts for around 45 minutes, so around 15 uses or 2 to 3 weeks
- Charging Stand
- Comfort Goggles (for protection if you are light sensitive)
- User Manual (you probably won’t need this, it’s incredibly simple to set up and use)
The science part
This is what is actually going on when you use this LED device: The Eye Perfector combines 4 LED wavelengths – amber (605nm), red (633nm), deep red (660nm), and near-infrared (880nm) – into a powerful and targeted treatment for the eyes.
What’s happening here is that the device is sending light waves into the skin in order to stimulate healing and collagen production. It’s entirely painless. You can sense the lights changing colour even if you’ve got your eyes shut (which I mostly do when it’s running).
So far I have been using the Eye Perfector as part of my evening routine, as I feel like I’m getting double benefits there from the relaxation elements. Fitting a device into your life 6 times a week is a big ask, but since this is only 3 minutes I feel it’s doable. Certainly more doable for me than going out for a salon treatment would be.
This is the first facial device I’ve used that’s specifically designed for the eye area – usually most devices tell you to keep away from the eyes. So far I can notice some softening and rejeuventation around the eye area, but no change yet in the dark circles under my eyes. It’s enough that I will stick with it, though I won’t be wearing it down the shops just yet. It’s definitely a product to commit to, but it’s not difficult to commit to if you want to see results. Will report back more in a few months’ time.
