REVIEW: Phillips Lumea Precision Part #2!

Firstly I want to say I was overwhelmed with the response for part #1 of this post last month.  I should have known that so many of you would also be interested in the prospect of a device which leaves you with pretty much non-existent hair growth!

Well I've been trialling the Phillips Lumea Precision Plus IPL device for a month now and wanted to report back on the results so far - half way through my trial period.

"Lumea, the secret to beautiful hair free skin, for up to 2 months."

The device is to be used once every fortnight and I think I've done 3 treatments so far (once more than I was supposed to but I couldn't resist as I enjoy it so much)!   Each time hasn't taken more than 10 minutes and that's to do my full lower legs, armpits, bikini line and upper lip area.

It's really easy to use - simply turn on, set to your desired intensity setting, press against the part of freshly shaved skin you want to treat until the 'Ready' button turns green and simply press flash!  I was a little apprehensive upon the first time I used it but quickly got into a routine which I found fun and satisfying.  I don't find this painful at all - the higher the setting and you might feel a little bit of heat on the flash but that's about it.  Obviously under the armpits and bikini line this can feel quite tender but it's absolutely fine for me.  I've been using setting 4 on my legs, and 2/3 on my face, underarms and bikini line. 

It was only after the 3rd use when I noticed a pretty great difference in the appearance of my hairy legs (hopefully all this hairy talk isn't too graphic for you).  

So I shaved my legs last Thursday and spent the next few days packing my life into boxes as I have been moving house.  Fast forward to Monday night and I realised I hadn't shaved my legs for 4 whole days and to be honest, there wasn't much to get rid of.  There were a couple of sparse groups of hairs here & there but on the whole my legs were still soft (I even got my workmate to touch my leg to agree with me and she was impressed - sorry Fran)!

I haven't noticed much of a difference on my armpits and bikini line but I don't tend to study those areas as often (ha) but I'll keep a good eye on them so I can update in my final post next month.  So far, so good.

Tempted to try this IPL Hair Remover Tool?

  5. Good to know about this.. I have been looking around shopping online for a good early Christmas present for my wife.

  6. I've been trialling this for nearly 4 motnhs now - my armits and bikini line are almost hair-free, but my legs didn't lose a hair. And things are getting worse the more I shave (I used an epilator before I started the Lumea trial). Simply don't know what's going on, my legs are just not responding to the treatment...

  7. I am so intrigued by this! Having to spend a lot of time shaving can be such a pain, really would like to try this out a lot! And loving the updates :)

  9. Thanks for the great review Katie! this looks like an awesome device! so tempted to try it out :P


  10. I really want to try this out, my leg hair is super dark and grows back really quickly, so anything which slows down/reduces this sounds like a miracle product. Guess I better save up.

  11. Been dying to try out this or one similar and think I might give it a go after reading your review. Quite pricey but then I guess it would be worth it in the long run! Love your posts.x

  12. Looks like a pretty handy device :)

    Please let me know if you would be interested in following eachother on GFC and Bloglovin.Would love to stay in contact.

  14. I've been looking at the Remington Ilight Pro for hair removal & had never heard of the Phillips. This product seems to outshine the Remington & others on the market. Thanks for the review!


  15. ohh I really want to try this tool! Sounds amazing!
