Ladies, I have finally found it! I purchased the Philips Lumea around 3 months ago and although it started off slow, with very little difference showing, i'm now almost hair free!!! Obviously only in the places I want to be hair free.grin

It's pricey and you do have to keep using every 2-4 weeks, but I really do think it's worth it.

I would definitely reccommend it to anyone with stuborn, dark hair, which is a pain in the ass to get rid of. It's not suitable for everyone though.

Anyway, just thought i'd let anyone know, who wants to know. Feel free to ask any questions.

Why is it not suitable for everyone? And does it hurt??

Ah just read a bit about it, not suitable for facial hair which is my biggest problem. Never mind! Glad you happy OP!

Yeah, it's a shame about not being able to use in above your neck. You do feel a little pin prick, but it really is very little. After the 3rd time you use it, you really don't notice it anymore. It does smart a little under your arms so you need to turn the level down one.

does yours have a flasing red light when i switch mines on to do a large area for example legs i hold the button down and this big red flash appears and of course thats the signal to let you know u can move it to a different spot but everytime this flashes i honestly get such a fright i lift the thing of my leg do you just get use to this

Lilly-when I first got mine, I used it at night and I thought i'd blinded myself.shock I thought I was never going to get used to it. Since then I only ever use it in the daytime, ie natural light. You really don't notice it as much then. Have to admit though, I do wonder why you don't have to wear protective glasses.hmm When you have it done at the salon, i'm sure you have to wear these enormous red ones.

Have you had any luck yet with yours?

Unfortunately, there's no guarantee it'd work for everyone. Otherwise it's a good product.
