MP3 player claims to fight acne using positive and negative ions


mpion MP3 Player

When I was in my teens, I had horrible acne on my face. Yes, I know, “a geek with bad acne, surely not!” I did all of the usual stuff, bought the special creams and face washes, but nothing really worked all that well, they seemed to keep it from getting worse, but rarely ever improved the situation much. Luckily as I approached 20 it lessened considerably. I still have breakouts here and there, but nothing like my high school days. While I’ve seen plenty of things that claim to clear up acne, this has to be the first MP3 player that I recall making that boast.

The mpion is nothing special as MP3 players go, as it’s only going to hold 128MB of music, which is only a couple of hours at best. What does make this device worth mentioning is its ability to release positive and negative ions into your skin while holding it to your face. You’ll use it for 10 minutes with it set to negative, then 10 minutes on positive.

Honestly, the $184 price tag is a big turnoff for something that claims to use ions to clear my skin. (Remember the Ionic Breeze anyone?) Still, some people might consider it worth the price. I can almost guarantee that it does not, in fact, work as stated. My method of reasoning is simple, look at the picture. I’ve used Photoshop for a good 10 years, and that my friends is one Photoshopped girl. If their product worked so well, why would they need to digitally smooth out her skin?

I agree, this is a load of, sorry, forgive me for what I was about to say. What I meant was, this product came on the same wagon as the one used to carry fertilizer. I have better ways of using that amount of money. Acne is like boldness, it’s already written in your genes, you can try and stop it but few methods work if any and only real cure is spending BIG bucks on surgery or accept who you are and know that people don’t actually judge you on your appearance but your actions and merits in life. If people can’t get past your appearance, that already says a lot about them and their not even worth getting to know from the start. Be happy who you are and be glad you have your health- things could be a lot worse than just a mere skin problen that eventually goes away with time, where some people are horribly disfigured and can’t do jack.

I am a Graphic Artist and yes this photo is Photoshopped to the max. How sad this advertiser thinks we are still living in an cave era as if we don’t know how pictures nowadays can easily be edited by many programs. This product’s claims is about as valid as letting a cow lick your head to regrow hair- goshhh!!!

The best ways of fighting acne are Finnish or Russian baths together with sporting activities and healthy nutrition! :)
