I bought one few years ago when they were half price - it's amazing! Mine doesn't have the face bit but I would not use that bit anyway. Used mine for about 5-6 months then pregnant with dc3. Started using it again about 8 weeks ago (was BF still) made massive difference already. I have very thick wavy wild bush hair on my head and though honey blonde the hair underarms/legs is very thick too. I was sceptical at first as I had a course of IPL at a salon about 10 years ago which made no difference at all. This is amazing worth every penny!!
I had my bikini line done in a salon years ago, and I have to say it was the best money I ever spent (prob about £1000 back then). About 8 years later I only have a few faint stragglers coming back which I can now zap with my new machine!
I've had Lumea compact for two months. No change in my facial hair yet at all and I'm using level 5 every ten days. I've pale skin and dark hair so in theory it should be ideal. I'll just keep shaving and zapping but fear I may be one for whom Lumea doesn't work its magic. It cost £100 with a Philips discount online so not hundreds of pounds but I'd be happier to see some improvement.
blisterface it's the facial shaving that's driving me mad. I have to shave at least twice per day. I don't even bother using it elsewhere; I'd just be delighted to have minimal chin hair. I used to pluck which worked well enough but I'd get spots. If I could change anything about myself it would be to have no chin hair. Over lip hair I can cope with!
