The Life Changing Beauty Product You NEED This Summer: Philips Lumea

Sharing my experience and results of using the Philips Lumea Prestige after eight weeks; HELLO hair-free Summer!


With one May bank holiday down, and one to go - it truly is coming into Summer time now! And you know what that means?! Bare leg weather! Yup, you heard right.. it's time to stash the tights and bare our pins! The REAL question is.. are you ready for bare-leg weather?! I am (looks V smug with self), but it's all down to one GAME CHANGING beauty product that has prepped me for Summer, let's delve a little deeper shall we?!...

So, what am I talking about? The new Philips Lumea Prestige at-home IPL has just launched (on the 27th of April, into Boots) and TRUST me when I say this product will change your life! Girls, let's just take a minute to image a life where you DON'T have to shave as often... is that not just the dream? Well, the new Philips Lumea Prestige offers just that! From the comfort of your own home, in just EIGHT weeks! All you need to do is eight weeks of treatment and you'll notice up to 92% hair reduction, which means you won't have to shave nowhere near as often as you are now.. amazing right?!

As we're nearing into Summer, you can pick up your IPL from your local Boots or order online here; and be hair free in 8 weeks; just in time for those summer holidays/festivals/BBQ's. Thank GOD for Philips is all I gotta say, because never before have I felt this Summer ready! Now, the Philips Lumea Prestige is priced from £520 which I KNOW is pricey, but to never shave again? WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY! Even though it's a lot of money; booking hair removal treatments can cost thousands so it's a much more affordable alternative!

Let's get into the nitty gritty of HOW the product works and what you can expect from the Philips Lumea Prestige...



THE PAIN? I feel like if I were you; this would be the FIRST question I'd personally want answered if I was considering purchasing the Lumea IPL. So, I'm going to give you my answer! The Philips Lumea IPL has a SmartSkin sensor feature where it measures your skin tone in one button, to advise the best setting to work most effectively. I found this feature super useful when it came to working out how to use the device best for me; I can honestly say the whole experience is pain free!
HOW DOES IT WORK? The Philips Lumea Prestige uses IPL technology, which uses gentle pulses of light to progressively reduce the re-growth of hair, putting the root into a resting phase. When used every two weeks for an eight week period, the treatment has been shown to reduce hair growth by up to 92% (bloody marvelous huh?!).
HOW DO I USE IT? For added convenience you can now use the new Philips Lumea Prestige both corded and cordless. Using the device corded speeds up the frequency of the flashes to once every two seconds, making treatment time 1.75 times faster, meaning you can now treat both lower legs in 8.5 minutes without the need to recharge the device between treatments! The ease and speed of the device means you can use it whilst watching your favourite TV show/YouTube channel, so you don't always have to 'make time' to use the device, just 'find time' during your down time instead! Yes, it's REALLY that simple! Hello hair-free Summer!




The new body attachment has a large (4.1cm) windows to cover a bigger surface area with each flash (perfect for your legs!), which in turn delivers faster treatment.. HURRAH! The new body attachment delivers an 8.5 minute treatment time for both lower legs (stick on your favourite YouTube video and away you go!).



The smaller (2cm) facial attachment features a flat design and has it's own additional integrated light filter which acts as additional protection and effective use on more sensitive skin, i.e upper lip, chin and sideburns. If you thought this product was a miracle worker; you were NOT wrong!



Specifically designed for the typically darker, stronger hair in the bikini area, this mid-sized (3cm) attachment delivers more energy per hair for more effective treatment. It also (rather genius-ly) features a convex curved shape to ensure optimal contact with the skin during treatment & a transparent filter for hygiene.



The underarm attachment features a slightly smaller window (3cm), and a convex curve to help women get more consistent contact with the skin under their arms! TRUST me when I say this attachment doesn't hurt nowhere near as much as you'd think!


The Verdict? As mentioned previously, I know this device is somewhat pricey, BUT for the results delivered AND in comparison to booking treatments; you get what you pay for at a MUCH lower price! Hair free in just EIGHT weeks from the comfort of your own home, and all with a manageable pain! That's an absolute YES from me! I can honestly say this product has changed my Summer/need to shave/LIFE! Let me know if you girls have tried this device or whether you'd like to!

    Oh girl this product sounds AMAZING! Had I not just started laser hair removal treatments, I would definitely be up for trying this. In comparison, it’s much cheaper and so ideal being able to use it from the comfort of your own home! It’s an admittedly an investment but what an incredible product.

    And these photos are so gorgeous!

    Love love love.
