What: Talika has created and developed a multi-action skincare technology to combat the signs of time on all fronts: LIGHT DUO+®, the new Talika Light, to act on deep wrinkles and dark spots while soothing the skin.
Why: It restores the skin’s “self-defence” weapons. It sends messages to the cell, which help to reactivate its original “intelligence”. The cell is therefore fully recharged with life and energy! Talika has again, pushed the limits of cosmetics and opened up the way to a “High-Tech Home Treatment” approach to younger-looking skin. For the first time, Talika combines a powerful anti-aging multi-program light into one single device.
What I think: I like how it’s nifty this device is and how perfectly it fits into my hand. It’s beautiful ergonomic design is extremely pleasing to the eye too, nothing says style like clean white lines! I didn’t get a chance to try this out for an extended period but I like the concept behind this – younger skin in less than 5 minutes a day.
Where: Sephora stores
The first sign of aging is the appearance of wrinkles that deepen over time. Skin aging is always accompanied with an inflammatory effect, which causes discomfort and redness. These are visible signs of aggression suffered by the skin over the years (toxins, sunburn, stress, surgery, smoking, hormonal changes, etc.) All of these phenomena, one after the other, seem to be uncontrollable and inevitable.
In order to fight against these multifactorial phenomenona, Talika has created and developed a multi-action skincare technology to combat the signs of time on all fronts: LIGHT DUO+®, the new Talika Light, to act on deep wrinkles and dark spots while soothing the skin.
Each wavelength is absorbed by the skin and reaches different layers of cells and blood capillaries: 525nm (epidermis), 590nm (middle dermis) and 630nm (hypodermis). LIGHT DUO+®’s wavelengths therefore contribute to regulating several epidermal and dermal cells.

The device is conveniently coloured to signify the different uses:
525 nm ► Regulates melanin production in 2 mins per day. -46% dark spots in 60 days.
590 nm ► Reactivates collagen and elastin synthesis in 45 seconds per day. -32% wrinkles in 28 days.
630 nm ► Reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine production in 1 min per day. -66% redness instantly.
LIGHT DUO+® is also fitted with an ionotherapy function, which helps to create a temporary state of permeability in order to “open” the cell wall, allowing the cells to open up and receive the active ingredients. The gentle vibrations of LIGHT DUO+® boost local microcirculation, improving intercellular communication.
I have a small concern/suggestion though. I went to my skin doctor the morning after this Talika event for a personal review and one of my doctor’s first questions was “Did you do light therapy recently?”. Apparently the light was a little too strong for my skin and it showed in my review. She recommended that I use a sunscreen before using this device as.. I’ve forgotten the medical term for this but it’s along the lines of photo-sensitivity.
Although I didn’t get to bring home a Light Duo+ for myself, the wonderful folks at Talika made sure that every blogger left with a goodie bag.
What’s in there: A very cute Light Duo+ cupcake, Photo-Beauty Therapy Brightening Serum, Instant Manicure Instant Whitening & Coating Oxygen Treatment, Photo-Beauty Therapy Cellular Activator, Skin Retouch Instant Retouch, Lash Conditioning Cleanser, Hand Ritual Kit Serum, Photo-Beauty Therapy Brightening Cream and Photo-Beauty Therapy Anti-Ageing Cream.
I’ve personally purchased and used the Lash Cleanser and Skin Retouch before so these samples come in handy for my travels. Thanks Talika!
