Practical review at week 6These 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.

Does exactly what it says it willI 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.

Effective but terrible batteryDoes 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.

So far so goodI've not had my lumea long but I think it's working well on underarm hair. It isn't quite so easy to use on my face because it's awkward to manoeuvre.

The game changer!I have been using my Lumea for approximately 4-months. There is a handy app to keep your treatment plan consistent for the best results & I'm definitely seeing a reduction in dark unwanted hair!
It takes some getting used to as there is a specific angle to hold it or it doesn't work and I have caught the buttons on a few occasions, but that is improving as I am getting used to it.
My skin is happier with this method over shaving & waxing all the time! I would definitely recommend it!

TerribleI bought this last year. Was so excited to use it and be hair free - IT DOESNT STATE ON THE BOX IT IS SEMI PERMENANT ANYWHERE ON THE FRONT. So it works fine, then your hair grows back - im scared to even use it again as other reviews state that the flash stops working after a while ? Surely this kind of thing for this price needs to have some sort of replacement - I paid a lot of money for a semi permenant fix. Not happy and will not be buying Philips products again.

Terrible Battery.The battery life on this just dwindles. At first it was fine, but now I'll be halfway through a leg starting on full charge and it'll die on me. Then I have to wait 90 minutes just to continue, making the session last a good 3 hours to IPL legs, under my arms and face as it needs charging several times throughout. At least let me use this when it's charging.
It's also really bulky and awkward to use too. I'm just throwing mine away because it's too awkward.
