The Philips SC2006/11 Lumea Precision IPL Hair Removal device is a system that claims to have everything users need in the box, while also offering a professional result. It is rechargeable, has 5 settings to its professional-level Intense Pulsed Light and comes with a storage pouch to keep the device clean and a facial attachment that makes it possible to use this light treatment on more than just legs and underarms.
The sales pitches claim that 80% of women asked said they preferred Lumea to their usual hair removal method, noting its speed, effectiveness and convenience in their reasons. Do reviews from ‘real’ users support this statistic?
On first impressions the Philips Lumea SC1981/00 IPL Hair Removal System seems fairly simple with its small body, treatment window and familiar promises of hair reduction.
This model promises versatility and ease of use with a slide and flash method for a more efficient session and the product description proudly states that there are approximately “88,000 UK women staying hair-free with Lumea” and that users will receive “over 75% reduction in hair regrowth in just eight weeks”. Are real users seeing such dramatic changes with this SC1981/00 or is it other Lumea devices that are leading to this high satisfaction rating?
There are two important points that stand out instantly in the specification for the Silk’n Silkn Glide 30K IPL Hair Remover: versatility and safety.
This small, lightweight device with its “home pulsed light technology” has included a 3cm2 treatment window and 5 different energy levels for an effective performance on most body parts but the designers have also considered the impact of this light on the user and added a skin colour sensor to protect those with darker skin tones.
At first it is a little hard to tell what makes the Philips SC2004/11 Lumea IPL Hair Removal System so different to the other Lumia IPL models that the company have put out and, as per usual, it is more to do with one key difference in operation and a few minor tweaks here and there than any major overhaul of the design.
The minor tweaks are clear in the changes to the shape and the slightly pinkish hue; the key difference is the fact that it is cordless. This cordless model promises to offer the same great lifespan of previous Lumias with added convenience through five adjustable light energy settings as well as the basics of advanced salon IPL technology: is this enough to make this a new and improved model?
First impressions from the specification of the Beurer IPL 10000 SalonPro Hair Removal System suggest that this is a top model that will provide just what buyers are after. It refers to itself as being “high-end” and deliberately highlights the use of 150,000 light pulses, the 7cm² XXL light area, integrated UV protection and the 2-in-1 sensor for skin tone and contact as key areas where it stands out from rival brands.
Add to this the claim that it will last for 20-40 years and it is easy to see why it catches the eye of so many consumers looking for a reliable solution to a frustrating, long-term problem. Is it this reliable and user-friendly and, more importantly, is it removing hair as buyers hope?
The strong link between the name Veet and reliable hair removal mean that the Veet Infini’Silk Pro IPL Hair Removal System automatically stands out to buyers looking for a interesting alternative to waxing and shaving. The device comes with a second “precision” lamp for the face and bikini line, has five adjustable light settings that flash onto the skin and up to 120,000 light pulses per cartridge.
According to the designers, it provides the sort of technology that can be expected from professional salons and dermatologists: is this the experience of real users or does it fall short?
It may look more like a bar-code scanner than any hair removal appliance that most women are used but the Philips Lumea Essential SC1991 IPL Hair Removal System has apparently been named as the preferred choice for 80% of women and has some great features to back up this claim.
The system uses an IPL (intense pulsed light), with a choice of 5 intensity levels and up to 100,000 flashes of life, as well as a 4cm application window to reduce hair growth on legs, arms, bikini lines and underarms. Phillips promise this device will be fast, effective and convenient but what do customer testimonials say?
One of the main reasons that this Silk’n Flash and Go Hair Removal System is so appealing to women is that it is meant to provide a convenient, cost effective method of hair removal compared to professional laser sessions or epilators.
User reviews for the device appear to support this idea because women talk about the money they have saved and ease of use. The initial purchase and subsequent replacement heads have proved to be cheaper in the long run and the system is surprisingly easy to handle because of its shape and light weight.
Hair removal is made easy thanks to the Philips SC2003 Lumea Precision Plus Rechargeable Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System.
This premium product works by applying gentle pulses of light to the roots of unwanted hair, thereby causing shedding and inhibiting growth. With the use of this innovative hair removal technology, you can comfortably remove hair in the privacy of your home.
The Gillette Venus Naked Skin designed by Braun Intense Pulsed Light Hair Reduction System is for people who want to use professional level IPL from the comfort of their own home. It uses square wave technology to direct continuous and controlled laser light energy towards unwanted hair. By using the included V Activating Gel, the laser light finds it easy to reach the hair root and put it to sleep.
As you use it more and more, the re-growth cycle is broken down more and more which means your skin is always left smooth and beautiful.
