Philips Lumea IPL hair removal system SC2003/11 Precision Plus For treatment on body and face 100.000 flashes
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!!

Easy to use and effective product
I’ll admit to being apprehensive to begin with but, over the last 8 weeks, it has completely won me over. The results are obvious, with marked changes in the amount and “strength” of re-growth I’m getting. I still haven’t got into using it on my bikini line (that’s just me and not the Lumea), but my legs and under arms are having to be done much less frequently and are remaining clear for longer. The charge lasts really well and when used at the right angle it’s taking me under 20 mins to do everything so it’s much easier than going all the way to your local salon and back!
A big issue for ladies can be hair sprouting where, frankly, it has no right to be and even here I’m finding a big improvement. The Lumea is able to do your face safely and easily. I’ve been using it on my chin and upper lip and I love the results. Those annoying and bristly hairs are staying away for longer and the re-growth I am getting is much smaller and less noticeable than before. I find that rather than panicking about what I might have missed I can run out of the door in the mornings without worrying. Definitely a bonus!
It really is so great that I would honestly recommend anyone unsure about it to take the plunge and give it a go. The Lumea Precision Plus might look like a big investment, but it’s a simple and effort-free time saver that gives long lasting results, which improve over time. What’s not to like?

I have now been using this product for six weeks and have begun to see results, it can be a bit of a lengthy process to begin with as you need to shave the area first before using the Lumea, but that is only for the first few weeks.
Hair growth has definitely decreased and although it has not made me 'hair free' as yet, I am certainly heading in the right direction.
The product is easy to use with well written and clear instructions.
My only negative is that I do find it too sensitive to use in some areas such as the underarm, even on lower settings, however I do have very sensitive skin, but it is fantastic on my legs and now ive had practice I can do all of my legs in no time at all!
