LAB Lip + Eye Focus Photon Review



Space NK UK
You know how much I love LED light therapy. I've had great results during professional facials with Dermalux and Light Fusion and at home with the Dr Dennis Gross DRx SpotLite Blemish Reducer (read my full review HERE). So when I saw the LAB Lip + Eye Focus Photon tool on offer on QVC UK, I didn't think twice and bought it straight away.


So what is it and what does it do? It's a beauty tool that utilises 6 scientifically proven technologies to reduce lines and wrinkles as well as helping clear up blemishes. The 6 technologies are:
  • Galvanic current - this helps get products into your skin and boosts their effectiveness. 
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) - this reduces deep set wrinkles and improves muscle tone and firmness.
  • Gentle warming - this increases circulation whilst soothing and stimulating skin.
  • Micro current - often used in clinics, this reduces the appearance of wrinkles whilst lifting and firming skin.
  • Massage - this helps you to relax, reduces dark circles and puffiness by improving lymphatic drainage. It also helps give a more radiant complexion.
  • Photon Light ring - red and blue LED lights, which improve skins elasticity and clarifies your complexion.


The wand itself has two functions - Red which is for anti-aging and Blue which is for purifying. The wand has the LED light ring at one end along with a metal circle. When you switch the wand on the LED lights up red and you can feel it gently vibrating. The metal circle also gently warms up too. You can switch to the blue light easily by pressing the button on the side. The wand is designed to be used when applying products to aid absorption and to give slip on your skin, so it doesn't tug or drag. I prefer to use it with a mist as I can spritz as much as I want then. When using the red function you touch the LED end of the wand to your skin and sweep a number of times until your product is absorbed. You do this under and above your eyes, gently lifting up your brow arch, and over your crows feet. You can then focus on your frown 11 lines in between your eyebrows by sweeping upwards. I also run the wand across my expression lines on my forehead. You then do the same for your nasolabial folds, marionette lines and around your lips. When using the blue LED function, you can either hold it over individual spots or slowly sweep it over areas of congestion. I always focus on my chin, jaw and mouth area and a bit on my forehead, where my acne is. The only downside I've found is that is can be uncomfortable on some blemishes because of it vibrating. 



I've been using this device pretty much nightly since getting it a couple of months ago. What I love about it is how easy it is to use. I can sit watching TV whilst using it. Plus you can use it for as long or as little as you like. It does have a timer function where it pulses to let you know when 3 minutes has gone by, which can be useful to prompt you to move onto another area. The wand runs off AAA batteries - it definitely doesn't use up batteries as quickly as the Dr Dennis Gross one. Since using the device, I've definitely seen improvement on my frown 11 lines - they're barely visible now whereas they were quite prominent before! I also think that my eye area is smoother and that the fine lines I had are pretty much non-existent now. Obviously I'm using skincare as well so that will contribute but I've not used anything new active-wise that would be responsible for the improvement so it's definitely from the device. All in all, I'm incredibly impressed with it and highly recommend it. I do prefer the Dr Dennis Gross SpotLite for blemishes though - purely because it's more comfortable to use as it doesn't vibrate and because it's both red and blue LED at the same time. But if you're looking for a reasonably priced device that covers both anti-aging and the odd blemish - this is a brilliant option. 

From looking on the LAB website it does appear that they have changed the design of the wand since I purchased it (that's probably why it was cheaper when I bought it). I can only assume that they've made improvements to it. The device is available HERE on LAB's site for £65 or from QVC UK HERE for £49.98.
