Try explaining to your boyfriend why you are holding a white electrical cone, that is emitting a lucid blue light, and humming gently, to your forehead. For five minutes. Per spot. Every morning and every evening. This was my main problem with the Tanda Clear +. (Not my boyfriend thinking I look a bit of a twit and questioning my sanity, I am immune to that, it happens so regularly) but the time factor.
I’m a busy girl, and, like most people in the modern world, rightly or wrongly, I want my fixes to be quick. The blurb says that the Tanda Clear+ is the first and only device to combine powerful bacteria-killing blue light with sonic vibration and gentle warming for clinically proven clearing results. Treating the inflamed area for only five minutes per day, morning and evening, for a fortnight, visible results should be yours.
Tanda bill the technology as an acne clearing solution. Acne is characterised by regular, large, inflamed, and multiple spots – not just the occasional zit to be zapped.
Let’s do some maths. Say you have four spots at one time. This is not a lot. Most people with acne can only dream of such sparkling skin as to be able to only treat one hour in the speedy five minutes suggested.
That’s four times five minutes – twenty. Twice a day. We’re up to forty minutes. Over two weeks, fourteen days, this adds up 560 minutes, or 9.3 hours. That’s more than the average working day.
If you can afford one day a fortnight, as well as the financial outlay of £130, the Tanda Clear + may be for you. Mine unfortunately will be resigned to the box.
