Last week: Suffolk County Council Trading Standards confiscated 84 LED beauty face masks located at a Felixstowe warehouse. Officers concluded the masks to be unsafe and seized them so they could not be sold to the public as originally intended on e-commerce platform Amazon.
Beauty LED mask have seen a rise in popularity thanks to the technology being hailed as beneficial for skin care. The masks are meant to be worn for just a few minutes a day to reap the benefits and ‘at-home’ models are becoming increasingly popular amongst beauty influencer and fans.
A spokesman for Suffolk County Council Trading Standards said: “We have concerns about the safety of the product following our visual examination, and a sample has been sent away for electrical safety testing.
“There is no manufacturer name or address on the product, and no model number. There is also no CE mark and the instructions are poor.”
The masks will be held until trading standards complete their safety tests. If you do buy a beauty LED mask on-line please ensure the product comes with manufacturer details and full CE marking or certification.
