Philips Lumea IPL hair removal system SC2003/11 Precision Plus For treatment on body and face 100.000 flashes
The best product I have ever bought
Finally no more bikini rash - in growing hairs or that horrible unsexy hairy feeling.
Brilliant elsewhere too - I have very strong, thick and fast growing hair - I now shave every couple of weeks - as opposed to daily and that's only because I run and have bare legs.

Unfortunately there is no reduction in my hair growth. I have light skin and dark hair and have used it on level 5. My facial hair is now stubbly and more noticebale than before which I'm really unhappy with. My legs and underarm hair is no better. Such a shame as for the price I had expected more. Now wish I had put the money towards salon treatment.
Also I can only manage to do, chin, underarms and one lower leg before the charging light comes on. So end up doing one leg one day and then the other the following day!

I had read good reviews of this product so had high hopes. The IPL has totally live up to them. I have dark hairs and light skin so am admittedly a good candidate but I have been amazed with the results. It's not easy because you have to commit time to do it - and maybe my pain threshold is low(!) as it hurts a bit but is totally bearable - but the hairs are disappearing before my eyes. It's amazing and I only wish this product had been around for longer ! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

A very easy product to use
Wow, this gadget is now my best friend, so far I have used it twice so I'm looking forward to having no more body hair in six months. I cant tell if its working yet, but I do know that it does exactly as advertised, it takes no time to do the upper lip, as for the legs well lets put it this way, you have your shower then half and hour later you have finished using your Lumea and put it away until next time.
Very easy to use. I'm so glad I decided to buy the Lumea. I definitely recommend that each of us ladies should have one at home, shame I didn't do so ages ago.

does not work!
As previous review - this product does not work and I have tried for over 9 months now - a very expensive mistake!

Amazing with great results
I love this purchase. The instructions are easy to follow and I found that the results for me were instant. Both my daughters now borrow my IPL. I highly recommend this machine.

Don't waste your time buying this
I am 47 and I have epilated using a Braun epilator for many years with reasonable results. I use it on my legs and underarms.
I decided to invest in the Lumea after reading all the reviews which I have to say are very impressive, but you are never sure just how genuine these are. So I took the risk to buy myself the instrument, making sure that I fit the criteria for success (skin type and hair colour). It is very easy to use and I diligently followed the instructions which involves shaving before use, making sure the skin is clean and repeating the process every two weeks. Since April through to August I have applied 10+ treatments to my legs and underarms. I am hesitant to say that after all this time, I think there may be small patches of skin that are hairless and perhaps a small patch underarm, but I definitely did not achieve full hair removal. Fine hairs still grow but this is the same result as I get with my epilator. The claim that this stops hair growth is simply untrue. My advice is don't waste your money and have it done professionally.

Finally becoming hair free!!
When I started to use the Phillips Lumea I was slightly sceptical as to how well it would work and how soon I would actually see results but I have been extremely surprised.
I wouldn't say I'm hair free yet but I'm definitely patchy. Having used it about 4 times, the areas I have covered definitely have slower hair growth with bald patches!! I'm really impressed and can't wait for a few more goes to get rid of the remaining hair.
I do have pale skin with dark hair which is one of the best combinations to respond to the treatment but I didn't expect to see results like this - it's a revelation to me as I have thick dark hair, which is hard work to maintain. It has been so much easier since using the Lumea, it has really changed my life and I'd highly recommend for people to try it.
It's easy to use, can be used whenever you have spare time and is so portable being cordless - I sit in front of the tv zapping my legs!!
