Every now and then a product comes a long that literally takes your breath away with its technology and results. The Genius Light from Talika is that product. Genius light works from the first use, giving your skin and the area around your eyes and, according to Talika, your face, exceptional results, plus the more you use it, the better those results will be!
But what exactly is the Genius Light and who are Talkia? A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to go to a Talika event and meet Alexis de Brosse the President and Founder of Talika. If this mans passion for skincare, technology and the skins wellbeing does not make you leave the room smiling, then nothing will.
“At Talika, every product is a living entitiy that has a date of birth, a reasin for being and a destiny. Born of the romance between a researcher and nature, the mysteries of which he explored and tried to decipher, each creation is an outcome of innovation. Talkia has drawn inspiration from the treasures of the living world since 1948, to develop imaginative treatments that allow every woman to radiate her natural beauty at every step of her life.” Alexis de Brosses
You may already be aware of this brand as they do some exceptional products such as the Eye Decompress and the Eyebrow ink but today i want to talk to you about the Genius Light. Genius Light is a mask that cover the eyes and the surrounding area a bit like a pair of ski goggles or a snorkle would. Using patented Swiss Micro current stimulations and Light therapy, this device offers 8 programes to help benefit the skin. In as little as 1 min and 45 seconds you can begin to treat wrinkles around the eye area and stimulate cell renewal. I have listed a photograph below that details the programes and timings available.
Talika state that “Genius Light, although it only covers the eyes area, is designed to act on the whole face including the forehead and lower chin. Its directional Led’s are targeting the whole face surface and the micro currents are applied to a nerve center that diffuses to the whole face. The eyes are covered for protection.. Talika ‘Youth booster’ should be used for the treatment of the eye contour area”
We all know the power of light technology now as it is used so often in Spa and Salon treatments to target certain areas. Red light is great for targeting wrinkles and activating collagen production as well as minimising dark spots, helping with inflammation. Whilst Blue Light therapy is used to help with acne, and improves the skins texture. The Genius Light also uses Green and Orange light, using different wavelengths to achieve different skin benefits.
With this in mind I was super excited to try the product. Now, at first try you may think you look silly, and well yes you do, but using it in the comfort of your own home, with no one around should put paid to that. Plus, I like to sing and dance in mine and just have a bit of fun hahaha! The mask has adjustable straps to make it easy to fit the shape of your head perfectly and an easy to navigate control panel of just three buttons. It is rechargeable using the included usb charger, but mine did come already fully charged.
The side of the packaging does come with really clear instructions and it is very easy to use. On the side of the head piece you have three buttons, the large round middle button is where you turn the device on, then use the top or bottom buttom to scroll down and choose your language, your light mode and your programme. You then wet your face and more importantly the two gold coloured discs inside the device, then, using the adjustable straps, pop it on your face over your eyes and you will hear a beep that signals your programme will begin. Sit back relax, read or continue about your day until your programme finishes, with another beep.
I would suggest that if you have long hair like me, scrape it back as it can get caught on the adjustable strap when removing the Genius Light.
It is great that you can select a treatment that suits you with ease, and within a few minutes the treatment is done. A reminder that the Treatments available are:
This treatment is perfect for treating the first signs of ageing. Both preventative and curative, this 1 min 45 long treatment stimulates the cell renewal within the skin. The result? Younger-looking, more radiant skin
Perfect for use on mature skin or skin visibly showing the signs of ageing, this targeted treatment smooths established lines and wrinkles and delivers a healthier, rosier glow. This is the one I love and the glow after is exceptional!
Anti Dark Spots
Suffering from dark spots or sun damage? This is the treatment for you. This 3-minute treatment regulates the secretion of sebum, whilst detoxing the skin to dramatically reduce the appearance of dark spots.
Treat congested skin with the anti-blemish treatment. Designed to regulate the production of sebum, it detoxifies the skin leaving it blemish free.
Create that spa-like feeling at home with the anti-stress treatment. This 3 minute treatment soothes and reduces redness whilst promoting overall wellbeing. Again, one of my favourite treatments to just sit and relax and do nothing.
Discover bright, glowing skin with the radiance boost treatment.
This detoxifying treatment has an anti-pollution effect, leaving skin renewed and rejuvenated.
The longest of the treatments, soothe and counter redness whilst decreasing the overall appearance of dark spots.
I have been using this device for two weeks and the glow it brings to my skin after use is incredible. I am looking forward to the long term effect as I really enjoy the Global Anti-Ageing treatment and am looking forward to the results. I am also using the Anti Dark Spots treatment to help with my sun damage.
I use mine every day and it really is just a few minutes. I personally do not feel any ‘current’ on my face whilst using it but i know that some people do, similar to a much more milder tens machine feeling. The only thing i feel after using the Radiance Boost Treatment is a little bit of heat in my skin but that soon subsides. You must only do a maximum of two treatments per day and levae at least 8 ours between treatments.
The photos above were taken two weeks apart. I used the Genius Light Twice each day using the Radiance Boost programme in the morning and Global Anti-Ageing in the evening. In the after photo I am wearing brow make up, mascara and a tinted lip balm but NO face make up. The photos have not been edited in anyway as you can see by the mascara on my cheek. My skin is looking brighter and a littler smoother in the after and I am super excited to see how it works on the wrinkles on my forehead and around my mouth.
Why is this device so clever? Using NASA derived technology combined with proven light therapy, makes this a great way of treating many different skin problems rather than focusing on one. I love that it is portable and you do not need to sit near a plug, but more importantly i love how quick each programme is. You really will not miss those couple of minutes each day to treat your skin.
Why choose this product over others out there?
I wouldn’t be so bold as to tell you how to spend your money and obviously this is a considered purchase. Look into what your skin really needs and if skincare alone is not cutting it for you, then do your research into this product. I like this because the mask is lightweight, and I can see through it so can carry on about my day if need be, but also the treatment times are the shortest I have ever experienced when using this kind of technology. But more than that, the results speak for themselves.
In clinical trials many people achieved incredible results over a period of time but with the Radiance Boost programme you literally see results immediately.
