Tanda ZAP is a terrific solution for customers looking for a “zit zapper” for those nasty individual blemishes that pop up at the most inconvenient time! Quick Key Facts:

  • Starts clearing blemishes immediately
  • 90% of blemishes disappear or fade in 24 hours
  • Helps prevent future breakouts
  • Eliminates acne bacteria
  • Gentle, non-drying
  • 100% natural
  • Accessible price point
  • 1,000 treatments
  • Powered by 3 AAA batteries (included)

How does it work? This triple threat for clearing acne blemishes uses the combination of three powerful, proven technologies to target pimples. A warming effect opens up pores so that a 414nm blue LED light can kill the acne-causing bacteria while sonic vibration increases microcirculation to help reduce swellling, inflammation and redness. STOPS ACNE FAST.

Just when you thought the Tanda couldn’t get any more amazing by zapping away pimples into obliteration, they release the new Tanda Zap- or as I like to call it the Baby Tanda!  This travel-sized triple threat powerhouse uses blue light therapy to kill acne-causing bacteria, but unlike the original Tanda is also uses warmth and vibration.  This sounds rather seductive, but remember we’re talking about gnarly zits here.  As you may (or may not know) I have frequent hormonal breakouts- they popup on my chin and jawline once a month and the usual solution (taking The Pill) isn’t an option for me, neither are most topical treatments.  I must say I’m really impressed with the Tanda Zap.  I found it to be just as effective as the original Tanda.  I had a couple red painful pimples that were trying to make their presence known and after the second treatment the pain and redness had dissipated and after the third treatment all was well.

Since the instructions lacked details and didn’t really explain how to use it, I decided to use it as I would with most skincare treatments; after cleansing and before moisturizing.  It also didn’t mention if you needed goggles to protect your eyes, since it’s required with the regular Tanda- so I used mine just in case.  I honestly don’t think you need them since the blue light is completely covered by the white casing…something they should consider with the lights for the classic version.  It doesn’t come with the device so I’d recommend that you close your eyes or seek eye protection.  The treatment works for 2 minutes but it took almost 1 minute for the warmth to kick in ::whomp whomp::.  I think had the warmth lasted throughout the entire treatment it would have taken less treatments to kill a pimple.

Overall I think this is perfect device for someone that has suffers from the occasional breakout.  Since the bulb can’t be replaced I wouldn’t recommend the Tanda Zap for large areas.  If you’re a makeup artist or have a special event to attend and you’re worried about pimples, this is a must-have.  I’m looking at you brides to be and models.  Stress is a huge trigger for pimples and breakouts.  I wouldn’t recommend this device to someone with a long term acne issue since it’s only good for 10,000 uses.  $49 is a small investment but worth every penny.  You’ll be spending a lot more purchasing topical products looking for a solution.

Rating:  A-

Though it’s effective and super convenient it lacks instructions that’s vital to using it properly—almost it goes with the assumption that the customer purchasing it is a current Tanda owner.  To read my review of the Tanda click here.
