UPDATE: For anyone reading this who is struggling with acne, please head over to my post about the best skincare product EVAH—it’s amazing for clearing up blemishes (and more of a long-term solution than the Zeno).
Last month, we heard about Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and Jenna Fischer repping the acne line ProActiv. Today, Zeno announced that The City star Whitney Port will star in a US$15 million ad campaign to promote Hot Spot, their thermal blemish-clearing device. AS IF that girl’s got acne. Just sayin’…
The Zeno gadget, however, is pretty clever. What it does is heat up when you hold it on a pimple (you need to hold it there for 2.5 minutes) in order to destroy the acne-causing bacteria. They claim that if you do two to three treatments over 24 hours at the first sign of a pimple, 90 percent of blemishes will disappear or fade in one day! (It’s also available in a cold sore version.) The other cool thing about Hot Spot—which is different from the version I was sent a few years back when the company first launched—is that it’s able to read the temperature of your skin in order to emit just the right amount of heat. Neat!
As usual, no word yet on whether this will be available in Canada. But in the meantime, tell me what you think of Zeno—if you’ve used it. I always forget to use mine. Does it work for you?
