Rated 3 out of 5 by Mac42 Effective but terrible battery
Does reduce hair well with repeated use. However the battery is poor e.g it will only do half a leg before it needs to be recharged again. I am a tall size 12, when zapping right and left top half of leg the battery will die before I've completed the left leg. Recharging takes a while before you can continue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitty78 Excellent results
Been wanting to buy one of these machines for ages! I have dark body hair and also facial hair that I have tried various treatments on I mostly wax. When I got this I decided to shave the unwanted hair before use I could see a difference on me lower legs after one use also my bikini area!! I have used on my upper lip, knuckles and everywhere I have unwanted hair! The results are great I can really see a difference and only after 2 or 3 treatments I am really happy hopefully I will enjoy a hair free summer holiday next year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zippybeme Does exactly what it says it will
I bought this product as an alternative to waxing. I have dark hairs that grow quickly and wanted to try and minimise growth on my legs, underarms and bikini line.
The first time I used it nothing seemed to happen, but after the third time I found that there were patches of hair on my legs and bikini line that had stopped growing. After using it monthly for a year I had significant hair reduction, hairs grew slower and in some places stopped growing completely.
I then found out I was pregnant so stopped using it for just under a year, I thought I would be back to square one by the time I was able to start using it again but there was no change in that time.
I have now been using it again for a few months and my bikini line hardly grows at all, the same on my legs. I have seen a Reduction under my Arms but it's not as significant as my legs and bikini line.
The laser is pretty much pain free and easy to use. It does take some time if you want to treat Lot of areas though due to the size of the laser head, but is the only downside really. It is expensive but given how much I would spend on waxing, it is worth it. It's less painful and doesn't irritate my skin like waxing did. It's also convenient to use in your own home and less messy.
Overall it does what it says it will, I've had significant reduction in hair growth and now have no growth at all in some areas. Hopefully over time the hairs will stop growing in all areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nino Changed my life
I highly recommend, I had a serous facial hair problem after giving birth and tried everting, vaxing, shaving, then I decided to try Philips IPL and I am so happy, it's like I never had a hair on my chin or side bones, it takes good 2-3 month regula use, but result is great, Best purchase ever, great value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by YuliyaP Excellent product and great results!
I own this model and I am beyond happy with the results achieved after only 3 uses. The body hair on the treated part reduced to 20% and after another use or two disappeared fully. Now I only need to touch up every now and again to maintain the results. The only little thing tat might bother people is the short battery life. It has to be recharged often but it charges quickly so can be used again. Highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to get rid of unwanted hair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by WMsmooth Practical review at week 6
These are the timings of me doing the following body parts with timings and any bits which have issues that I found. I do this very well and accurately whilst sat in front of the TV.
Whole of each lower leg including knees - it says 15 minutes with the large attachment on the details for the product: Took 10 minutes for each leg.
The tricky bits when doing the legs are round the ankles, kneecaps, and over any parts of the leg where there are prominent bones, or areas which are actually small such as the top of your foot and top of the big toe. For these areas I sometimes switch to the small attachment. For bony areas if I don’t need to switch attachments I carry on with the large attachment and turn the unit sideways in order to get contact.
You’ll also find that when you’re approaching a joint eg back of the leg the handle of the unit can get in the way so you have to turn the handle round otherwise you end up bumping into the back of your knee/the thigh and can’t move the unit any further up.
After doing both lower legs I recharged for 30 minutes.
Did the whole of left thigh (took 13 mins) at which point battery ran out (so from full charge I was able to do 1.5 legs).
Did recharging for 1.5 hrs until unit was showing as fully charged. Did remaining thigh (about 10 minutes).
Then finished with bikini line, armpits and chin which took just a few minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wedgy This really works
i waited a long time to buy the lumia mainly due to cost and the worry that it would be money wasted.
I wish I had brought this years ago... I'm quite hairy and ive been embarrassed about this for a long time even with my husband.
I have focused on my bikini line as this has been by biggest problem... Have had terrible rashes from shaving & quite bad ingrown hairs from waxing.
Have always felt a little stressed about holidays and swimming but I think this will change my life!
I have been using for a few weeks and can already see a dramatic reduction. I think if persever I will be hair free... I have just started to do my under arms too.
I would highly recommend this product
