Permanent Hair Removal?

81LoXHXImVL._SX522_I was considering waiting until the new year to post about this on my blog as although it COULD be a gift I wasn’t sure whether it would be appropriate as a ‘gift idea’ BUT.. 1. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t benefit from this (if it works) and 2. Winter is surely the time to start using something like this, in prep for the warmer months when we want to get out legs out, right? I will be doing a holiday countdown series (a LONG countdown but I figure January is when we all start to think about holidays) next month and I thought this was a good place to start. You may have seen my video a couple of weeks ago where I gave my first impressions of the device, for those who didn’t it’s an IPL (intense pulsed light) which in theory will reduce my unwanted body hair. I am going to be using it for the next three months (minimum.. why I would stop I don’t know) and then follow up and let you know how I got on. To be clear I’m under no obligation to sing the praises of the Infini-Silk, in fact I was very pushy on that point with Veet and they are more than happy with an honest review from me. This is not a throw away purchase, it’s EXPENSIVE so there’s no way I’m recommending it to you unless it’s really worth your cash. In the interest of a balanced review I’ve also got my Mum using it too.. she was VERY interested in it for unwanted facial hair (note: my Mum is not some kind of circus freak.. I too am using it on my chin and upper lip) so at the end of the testing period I’ll be able to share not just my experience but hers as well.. why she doesn’t want to use it on her legs I have no idea but that’s by the by.. If it works wonders for me I’m sure she’ll change her tune.

I’m currently using it on the highest level once a fortnight (twice so far) and am fighting every rebellious urge to use it more often. Was I not testing it for you I’d likely break the rules and use it once a week but given that I want to give an idea of how/whether it works following the directions I’ll be good.. for now. It’s tough to measure results as I shave regularly so I can’t tell you anything’s happening yet but I’m trying to leave it longer between grooming sessions to get an idea. I’ve seen reviews where people claim there hair is “40% less” – how they can say that I have no idea.. I will be working on the ‘little/a lot’ scale when I give you my final thoughts.. just managing you’re expectations now, I’m not a computer!

Whether you’re interested in this for yourself or someone else it’s definitely an interesting concept. There are a lot of devices of it’s kind on the market but from what I can tell it’s one of the cheapest (if not the cheapest) of it’s size and power – plus it’s on sale!

You can watch my video with more info on the device and a demo below..

Anyone who’s asked me if I would BUY this device with my own money has received the same answer so far, if you have a close group of friends/family it would be a great investment between you. It’s not something you need to use daily, it can easily be passed around (obviously sanitising is necessary) between multiple people who want to use it and it would massively reduce the cost of something that let’s face it is not cheap. Of course if it’s some kind of miracle worker that permanently removes ALL unwanted hair I will change my tune.. THAT I would pay anything for but I’ll reserve judgement for now.

Watch this space for my final thoughts! – buy online here

    All the bloggers who were sent the other hair removal devices said such rubbish eg like what you said about “40% less hair”. It’s so obvious that they’ve been told to write that as every single blogger wrote it. You’re one of the few bloggers who are actually honest so I can’t wait to see what you think of this.

    I have the same type of device but then from Philips. I must say that all the devices that are sold on the consumer market DO NOT remove hair permanently but only for a couple of weeks as the light of the devices is not strong enough to really destroy the follicle. Once you know that and accept that you have to use it every 3 to 4 weeks, it is still a good device. I really like the fact that my legs are soft and hairless for a long time. But, it does take a lot of time to actually use it. Think it costs me 30 – 45 minutes every session.

      If it worked for say a month for the sake of half an hour I’d be cool with that.. there was a point where I was shaving EVERY DAY so we’re talking about a huge amount of time saved there

    I don’t need a percentage. Just tell me how long you can go between shaves. If we’re talking 2 weeks or more I’d buy it haha.
