Which Lumea should I buy?

So after months years of fantasising, I'm going to buy a Philips Lumea. I'm planning to do face, nipples, and tummy as first priority blushand then think about legs, armpits, and bikini line.
Just had a look on the Boots website and there are six different ones though confused No idea which one to choose except I'd prefer not to spend more than £400.
Any recommendations? A cordless one is currently on offer for £375 reduced from £475, but no idea if that's the best to get.

I was literally just looking at them trying to work out which model to get too! I'm leaning towards the sc2009 on John Lewis (£399) as it can be used on the face and is cordless too, but if a cheaper one would do the same job that would be great!

De-lurked just to warn about using it on or near darker bits of skin - lips, nips, moles, tattoos. The light zaps the dark bits more strongly so can cause burns - check elsewhere for a clearer explanation before you buy.

I got one in Argos on offer for £250 a few months ago. So far it's worked fab on armpits bikini and lip but legs are slow going but I think they hair is starting to slow down now.
If you use on nipples. Start on the lowest setting

Just to report back I took the plunge and ordered the 2009 model off amazon for £289.99 and it arrived yesterday... just zapped my legs and underarms and will be tackling the bikini line and face after it's recharged. Did you decide which model to go with in the end OP?

Just a warning, some models have to be charged regularly (every 2 months iirc) otherwise the battery dies and can't be replaced. I found that out the hard way.

What's the pain like

No pain at all. Just a hot flash like touching a cup of tea momentarily
