What is it?

ESPADA, which means sword in Spanish, is a tool that attacks blemishes using blue LED light and T-Sonic pulsations to tackle acne-causing bacteria. It comes in three colours: Magenta, Light Pink and Cobalt Blue.

How does it work?

It combines blue light and T-Sonic pulsations to spot treat blemishes painlessly and non-invasively. The silicone surface inhibits growth of bacteria on the device itself.

The pulsations begin when the device is placed on the skin, supporting natural blood microcirculation and facilitating the skin’s renewal, and gradually increases in speed until the 30 second cycle is finished.

Some features include:

  • 50 uses from a single charge
  • 415nm blue LED light
  • 30 second treatments with built-in timer
  • Waterproof, silicone coating for bacteria resistance
  • One switch ON/OFF

How is it used?

  1. First cleanse your face
  2. Press the button to switch on your ESPADA
  3. Hover over the spot on your skin you wish to treat, you’ll see a small red cross, the close you get the more accurate the cross will be
  4. As you touch it to your face the blue light will turn on and the T-Sonic pulses will begin
  5. Make sure to hold it gently (don’t press hard) or you will give yourself a 1ittle bruise!
  6. After 30 seconds the device will stop
  7. Proceed to the next treatment spot
  8. Repeat this up to 4 times for each spot.

My Experience

My skincare routine has become second nature and straight after I cleanse, I automatically reach for my serums and moisturisers. However, ESPADA should be used on freshly cleansed skin and I kept forgetting to use it and went onto moisturise!

After placing it directly in front of me on my table where I get ready every morning and wind down at night it was easier to incorporate this device into my skincare.

When using the light pen, I clearly noticed my pimples were reduced significantly overnight. The more I used it the faster my skin healed. At it’s best, I used it each morning and night, 4 times on each blemish. I sat there for a loooong time some days where there were multiple spots to treat!

More recently, after using the blue light pen, I applied EradiKate as a leave on treatment overnight and by the next morning each pimple was almost healed!

Pros & Cons

Final thoughts

The obsession is real - I love FOREO! Every time I try their products I’m blown away with how well they work.

Prior to this I’ve never heard of blue-light acne treatment and thought it might be a bit of a gimmick. As I used it more regularly, my blemishes diminished much faster than using nothing. The best results were when I used this light pen along with EradiKate pimple cream.

It’s amazing for travel, when I don’t want to bring my EradiKate and risk leakages throughout my luggage and don’t have to worry about charging it unless I’m going away for extended holidays.
