Sponsored through MavenX network.  All opinions expressed and my experience are my own honest evaluation.

Scientific advances in all areas of life move at an ever increasing speed to bring us better, faster and more efficient methods of living.  The same is true in regard to advances in skincare and anti-aging treatments.  Creams, serums and devices are better than ever before and many actually work to bring us younger looking skin.  Today I want to introduce you to an innovative anti-aging LED light by Trophy Skin called RejuvaliteMD.   I'm two weeks into my use and already have some opinions and I'm pretty hopeful for what I'll see in the next month, which I will blog at that time.   If you have been looking to purchase this light or a microdermabrasion kit for yourself or someone special for Mother's Day, you can save 15% with the code POLARBELLE.  US addresses also receive free shipping and the code is good thru June 30, 2018.


It wasn't very long ago that the only way to turn back the hands of time  was a surgical cut and paste.  I love the new easy technologies that provide a less invasive way to have younger, better looking skin.  The claims of the light are substantial.  "RejuvaliteMD utilizes groundbreaking LED technology to safely and effectively stimulate skin healing and collagen production-reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots while improving radiance, elasticity, and firmness. Safe visible and infrared light wavelengths penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of natural enzymes that increase collagen production, reduce inflammation, and improve skin tone and texture." How? "Unlike some devices that use only red light, RejuvaliteMD utilizes four UV-free wavelengths including red, yellow, amber, and infrared light to effectively treat multiple signs of aging."

Some pretty big claims, aren't they?  It claims to be able to help sun damage, wrinkles, lines,  hyperpigmentation and to do so painlessly!  I can tell you it is completely painless to use this light and it only takes 5 minutes per body part that you wish to treat.


The light comes to you well packaged for safety.  You connect the neck to the base, plug in the included adapter and you're ready to go. The small copper button on the base turns the light on and off.  There is a pair of eye safety goggles that need to be worn while the light is on.  The neck is flexible so that you can move the light to any angle that you need it to be.


For this testing period, I chose to test the light on my face for obvious reasons.  I chose my neck, which is aging much more quickly than I am due to two extensive neck surgeries.  After my second neck surgery five years ago, I spent a year in a neck brace.  I was horrified by the atrophy of the neck after that year which also caused wrinkles and scar tissue buildup.  I felt it put 10-15 years on me and I'd like to tighten that up, if I can.   My third area of testing is my chest which I'm estimating to be about 25 years older than I am thanks to a severe 3rd degree Mexican sunburn.  I have scars, discoloration and wrinkling on it.  PEOPLE!!!   Wear sunscreen!!!  Don't be dumb like a young 20 year old in a time where sunscreen wasn't the every day item it is now.  If you never had sunscreen in your youth and you can literally point out those areas, this light just might be for you.

You can use the light twice a day if you like.  I've only been able to get in one session per day due to a crazy schedule lately.  I want to make time for the morning session too, but let's face it, if you see my posting times, you'll know morning isn't my favorite thing.  You can use your session for complete relaxation as you close your eyes behind the goggles, or you can use it to listen to a book, a youtube video, or make that shopping list for the umpteenth time.

I use the light relaxing on my bed.  I prop my head up, grab the light and rest it on my stomach.  I bend the light to whichever part I'm treating and go for it.  Keep the light 4" from your skin as you do so.  I don't know if you can tell in the picture but I'm totally eating cookies as I use my light while working on my decollete!  (Wearing a tank top, btw)


Here I am treating my face.  haha!  You can't see me!!


There is a 60 day guarantee to work or your money back!!  What?!  No really, this product is guaranteed to work so your purchase is risk free!!  It's recommended to use it for about 2 months to see results.

You may wonder if it's possible to see any change in my first two weeks of trial.  My answer is yes.  I've seen a difference in all three areas.  I am saving most of my before and after pictures for the end of my first 2 months where I think you'll see the most change.  But here is what I've seen.   I've noticed a tightened look in my neck already.  It's small, but I notice it.

My chest is where I've noticed the most change and thank God for that!!!  My skin is smoother and more uniform in color.  I have white scarring all over it from that burn, deep vertical lines from...well, other things on my chest, lol, and a butterfly looking dark patch that is evident on HD film.  I can't see it with just my eyes yet but it is where the awful blisters were from that horrible burn.


After just two weeks, what I notice is, in particular, a smoother texture.  My skin feels completely smooth.  It had felt like it had some terrain before.  It's hard to describe as it wasn't bumps but it wasn't smooth, either.  The color is more even and the crevasses aren't as deep.  I'm really encouraged.


These pictures were taken in the same room under the same lighting so I'm not sure why the skin color has come out so differently.  I don't really know if you can tell a difference but in real life, I sure can.  It's a beginning and I'll take it!!

Check back in with me in another month to see where I am then.  In the meantime, you can order any device from Trophy Skin and save 15% using the code POLARBELLE, (good thru 6/30/18).    Here's to hoping I can turn my chest into baby's bottom softness!!

What areas of your body would you like to see younger, more improved skin?  Do you have special things you will be gifting for Mother's Day or any special beauty items on your Mother's Day wishlist?
