SmoothSkin IPL Hair Removal

SmoothSkin IPL Hair Removal

I know I can't be alone in saying this, but I HATE SHAVING. 
Show me one woman that actually likes the process of hair removal. Shaving, epilating - don't even get me started on waxing. It's just all so awful. For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to have laser hair removal. Just imagine never shaving again - heaven. But, I've never taken the plunge as it has always been so expensive. Before this product, I had never really given any interest into at home laser hair removal products, as I just assumed that they wouldn't be as good as what you could get at a salon. How wrong I was.

SmoothSkin was a brand that I had seen around and about on Instagram and I was so excited when they offered to send me one of their products to try out. I have been using the SmoothSkin Bare in this fab pink colour. The Bare has 100 flashes of light energy per minute making it the fastest on the market. The product works by transferring light energy through the skin's surface which is then absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorbed light energy is then converted to heat energy which prevents any further growth in the hair follicle. Real science stuff.

In terms of treatment time, everyone is different. At the point of writing this, I have been using the product for about 10 weeks. I have seen the most improvement in my leg hair. There has been a considerable decrease in the hair regrowth. I have had less success with my underarms and bikini line - but I'm continuing to persevere. Hair colour and thickness can really affect how fast you see results, so it's really important to keep persevering with it. It's really important to get into a routine with it - using it every week to get the best results, no skimping!

Time for the big question - the pain. I have heard that traditional laser hair removal is painful. I have seen other reviews of this product where people have said this is completely pain-free. I wouldn't exactly believe them. For me, the legs are completely painless. Using the glide method, you literally just glide the machine up your leg and you don't feel anything other than a small amount of heat. The underarms are a bit more painful, like an elastic band snapping on your skin. Smaller areas are best to use the stamp method, where you control the speed of the flashes. Finally, the bikini line - it's definitely the most uncomfortable area. Again, it feels like lots of elastic bands snapping. It's not ideal, but it literally takes less than 10 minutes to do your whole body, so it's not too much discomfort to endure.

It's really important to keep using this product, even when you've achieved the desired effect to ensure that the hairs don't grow back. You might not need to use it religiously every week, but you do need to keep on top of it. So, I'll be continuing to use this product over the coming months and I'll give you another update in a few months time. I've seen on the website that SmoothSkin now have £20 off this product making it £179. So, now is a good time to get your hands on one.

Have you used any at home IPL? If you've got any tips or advice, I'd love to hear them. Find me in the comments or on Instagram and Twitter

  1. I had Botox on forehead wrinkles and Dermal Filler for laugh line. They make you feel very comfortable and I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great result. Service and treatments are both incredible. laser hair removal Richmond Hill
