Does The Veet Infini’Silk Pro IPL Hair Removal System Have The Performance To Meet Brand Expectations?
The strong link between the name Veet and reliable hair removal mean that the Veet Infini’Silk Pro IPL Hair Removal System with Precision Facial Attachment 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?

What benefits have buyers experienced with this Veet Infini’Silk Pro and does it offer the salon-quality experience advertised?
Starting with the positive aspects, there is a clear sense that this is definitely a plug in-and-go appliance that is pretty easy to use. Many reviewers highlight the light weight and there are variable responses to the use of a cord; it is not as convenient as some would like but it means there is no rechargeable battery to worry about.
Another important benefit is the lack of side effects. There are warnings of mild irritation and that users should take care when following the instructions as well as restrictions on certain hair types and skin tones – as is often the case with these sorts of devices. On this note, the safety feature built into the Veet Infini’Silk Pro IPL Hair Removal System to detect skin tone also has the helpful feature of locking the device on the wrong skin tones to prevent against harm.
In addition to this ease of use there are the reasonably positive results from using it that have been reported. The promise is that buyers will start seeing hair reduction in just four or five treatments – note that this says reduction not removal – and buyers do not object to this. It seems that the responses given are incredibly subjective as one user can have a very different experience to another and this is good indication of why this is mostly seen as a 4 star product rather than a 5 star one.
What are the other downsides that have led to the less than perfect reviews for this Veet Infini’Silk Pro Hair Removal System?
At this point it is worth noting that there are more 4 star reviews on Amazon than 5 star ones, suggesting that most people are happy about the purchase but can find enough flaws that they are not ecstatic about it.
There are a few suggestions that it could have been designed a little better with the user more firmly in mind. Examples of this are as follows: the device is a little bulky; the settings take some getting used to because of the minimal buttons, which actually makes choosing between the options more of a hassle; and the safety light for the skin test is not easy to see while people are using it.
In addition to this, it is said to make a noise like a hairdyer. Again this a questionable as either a pro or con because while you will know that it is working, you could find it is too noisy. Overall, the problems that are experienced are minimal and do not affect the efficiency all that much but it is the volume of criticisms that is the real issue.
Summary: if the experience is so subjective and there are clear design flaws, can this Veet IPL Hair Removal System be recommended?
The appeal and function of this device is summed up by one reviewer who says it should be advertised as a hair reduction device rather than a permanent hair removal system; the latter can raise people hopes a little too high and does not accurately reflect the results seen.
As a device for hair reduction, this product has a lot of potential benefits with its ease of use and there is the chance of great results with some patience.The problem is that there are still plenty of drawbacks to the design that limit the appeal. This Veet hair removal will not please everyone but users with the ideal skin tone who are familiar with this form of treatment and just want a simple device should find it is up to the job.
