Have you tried IPL hair removal before? Every shopping mall has a laser salon and every time I walk past, I’ve made myself a little mental note. Life would be nice without constant shaving, right?
But … the time commitment, the months of cash outlay and the fear factor of the unknown all combined to put me off.
When I was offered the opportunity to trial the Philip Lumea Comfort IPL hair removal system, it seemed to be the perfect solution.
The Philips Lumea Comfort is a hair removal system that applies gentle pulses of light to the hair root, that you can use at home. The IPL (intense pulsed light) works to slow down hair regrowth. With repetition, body and facial hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited.
The time commitment? Well, 22 minutes to treat your lower legs – with no driving time, no hassle finding a park and no time constraints by salon opening hours? Sounds pretty sweet to me.
Priced at $549.95 RRP, it’s cost effective. Four to six treatments are required to remain practically hair free. At an average price of $99 per treatment for lower legs laser hair removal, it more than pays for itself. Occasional maintenance treatments can be done once the initial treatment period is completed. Plus, it’s not just hair free legs. You can treat facial hair, underarms, bikini lines.
Oh, and it’s perfect for your man too. Ever wanted to sort out his fluffy back?!
As for the unknown factor? Well, all my questions were answered by the extensive information provided with the device, and the online information on the Philips website.
Let’s talk about using the Philips Lumea Comfort IPL hair removal system.
Philips Lumea Comfort | what they say
As an affordable and compact at-home hair removal system, the Philips Lumea Comfort works wonders to effectively prevent the reappearance of hair regrowth on the face as well as body.
Gentle pulses of light when applied regularly can keep your skin feeling silky-smooth every day.
Perfect for women with dark hair and medium to light complexion, the Philips Lumea Comfort is a safe, painless and easy way to maintain smooth pretty skin all year around.
Philips Lumea Comfort | what Kimba says
The Philips Lumea Comfort has no hidden costs – you don’t need to keep buying products or parts to use with it. It will save you money in the long run too – we love that!
I was worried about the ease of use – and it couldn’t have been easier. The adjustable light settings and Skin Colour Sensor make it super easy to maintain a comfort level with effective treatment. The Slide & Flash mode was easy for continuous use, and helped to make the guiding of the device super simple.
The Philips Lumea Comfort fits comfortably into my hand – even my poor little swollen sore hands. The flash is extremely bright but I found I got used to it pretty quickly.
My hair removal cycle, of four fortnightly sessions, will take a little longer. I had my endometriosis removal and hysterectomy surgery in the midst of my treatment, so I had to miss a couple of sessions. But I’m back on track – and I’m going to be beautifully fuzz free for summer. Oh, and, you know, forever!
Philips Lumea Comfort | the details
Let’s check it out – what does it look like after a session or three? What skintones and hair colours does it work on?
Just to let you know that the Philips Lumea Comfort doesn’t work on dark skintones or light hair, but if you have dark blonde, brown and black hairs on pale to medium skintones, then go for it!
