This is a great product and I am very pleased I have got it.I bought the product in the beginning of August but started using it in the end of the same month. I am very pleased with the results so far, I can say I am 80% hairless since I got it. I do admit though that those minutes shown on the advert are untrue for me, I think for every person they apply differently for me it took longer for the face, legs and armpits but it is easy to use though. The only thing I would have liked is the battery to last longer and the 2 head attachments to be slightly bigger so it would have taken me less time.
Result so far: 1) Armpits no hair for the last 3 weeks; 2) Intimate area - 80% success so far; 3) Legs - also 80% success so far; 4) Face - 90% success; 5) Arms -only twice applied so far.
All the results have been achieved for the last 7 weeks of use.
I hope this information will help you in your purchase decision.

Given me back my confidenceI suffer from hormonal hair growth on my neck area, which I found really affected my confidence, especially if I was ever close to someone.
After the first go I have noticed a difference. although the hair is still growing back (I've only used it for 8 weeks - 4 sessions), it is a lot finer and I don't even notice it at all.
I also have used it on my underarms and bikini area, which I am noticing a difference. It's now patchy and a lot finer.
This really has changed how I feel about myself and how I am around others. I no longer waste 10 mins a day tweezing my neck...resulting in red and scarred skin.
The underarms are bikini area are a bonus, but the neck is life changing!

Did not work for meHm, I just bought this a few weeks ago and yesterday, I've just zapped my underarms and legs for the third time (so this means 6 weeks in) but I'm really so extremely disappointed (!!!!!!) to say that it did not work for me. I do not see any noticeable reduction in the hair growth, and the hairs also grew at its usual rate which still meant that I was shaving regularly every two days like before.
First off, I'm a prime candidate as I have fair skin and thick, dark hair so I guess it actually really boils down to a person-to-person efficiency basis. I am recommending this product as I liked it, and I'm sure it will work out for someone who is luckier than me. I did my online research prior to purchase and many would have had results by this stage but still nothing noticeable on my side. Having spent a big sum of money on this and only have a 28-day window period to return for a refund is a total bummer as now I guess I will just have to stick it out and see how it goes. Perhaps I should be more patient (will update review again in another 6-8 weeks). I should also say that the hair on my legs are much thinner and lighter than the ones on my underarms, and I'm not sure if it really has become more patchy or not. Nonetheless, I was expecting it to work best on my underarms as the hairs are much blacker and thicker and would absorb the light more readily.
Apart from results, like many said, the usage of Philips lumea don't hurt if you know which setting to use - 5 on my legs, and 3 on my underarms. Much, much better than those horrifyingly painful and scary epilators that ripped off your skin!! It was easy to manoeuvre as it was wireless, and it was a nice sleek design. I had no issue with the battery/charging time as some users did, I could do both my underarms and my legs in one sitting without the battery running out. Also, it is recommended in the booklet that you use a white pencil to mark out areas on your legs, and to cover freckles or moles to prevent skin infection. Everything was pretty easy to understand: firstly, shave and dry your skin. Make sure it is charged and press it onto your skin and wait till the light goes green and click the flash button and you'll be good to go.
*Will be updating review again

didn't really work!Although this has been easy to use, after 10 treatments, 2 weeks apart, I still haven't seen great results. I am an ideal candidate: very pale skin and dark hair, and have used it on setting five from the beginning. I am surprised at the poor results, as this was recommended by a friend who had raved about it. Disappointed.

Does the job - but has stopped chargingA really good product. I have used this in legs, underarms and bikini area.
Good results when used once a week.
The head is small so legs can be time consuming but not too bad.
Sadly mine has stopped charging and is out of its years warranty. Really dissatisfied as it was a lot of money.

Fantastic wish I knew about this product years agoTried a lot of other products in the past . Reluctantly bought this a couple of Xmas ago for myself. Used as directed approx six times notice hair did not grow back. Now give a myself a treatment when I remember once a couple of months.
Unsightly and upsetting facial hair gone!

Life changing, should have bought this years ago!I have just finished my 5th treatment ( the recommended amount to see results) but I had great results from the first use. I have pale skin and dark, coarse hair and had only ever waxed or shaved before. The product worked best on areas which have previously been waxed, which for me, was my bikini line. Having to shave this area first was daunting as I get really bad shaving rash but the hair never grew back and has remained smooth ever since.
I can not recommend this product enough and I wish I had bought it years ago. My leg hair grew so fast that I could honestly shave twice daily but using this for only a few months, I barely need to shave once a week now.
I am hoping with continued use that I will no longer need to shave at all but the fact that I barely need to shave at all is a small miracle for me. Another benefit is not having to listen to another bikini waxer telling me I need to exfoliate more to avoid in-grown hairs!

A great investmentI've been using my Lumea for about 12 months now and have definitely noticed the results. At this time of year hair removal is low down on my list of priorities but I find I don't even have to think about it!
I followed the instructions using it every two weeks for a good few sessions and am now at a stage where I only use it every two months.
My leg hair is growing back sparser and slower than it used to. I must admit I'm a bit gung-ho when doing my legs and don't divide my leg up with an eyeliner or the like to help guide where the Lumea should go, so I probably do miss a few bits here and there each time (hence the sparseness where in fact it might have been none!).
I've also noticed my underarm hair and bikini line are also not needing 'tending' to so much.
I think the only downside I've found is introducing my friends to it! As I'm now down to using it every two months they've seen their window of opportunity and have set up a rota system for borrowing it. They've also been extolling the virtues of the Lumea.
One small niggle is when doing a whole body (my legs, underarm and bikini line) a fully charged battery sometimes needs a recharge before I've finished, but this isn't a deal breaker!
