Philips Lumea SC1981 IPL

Wednesday, 2 September 2015


Before I start going into why and how let me just begin with saying that this product by Philips is 100% the best and most useful, time and money saving beauty gadget around with a 10/10 satisfaction rating and I'm so thankful I've been introduced to it! Now you can read on knowing it will most definitely be worth your time as this product WILL make your beauty regime (and life) easier, not to mention smoother...

The Philips Lumea SC1981 IPL hair removal system is the new compact version of the other IPL gadgets in the range, its super lightweight, conveniently sized, travel friendly, affordable (£200) and most importantly SO effective. 

I don't know about you but if you're a traditional shaver like I used to be (before my beloved Lumea came into my life) there really isn't anything more irritating and time consuming than realising you want to bare your legs for that spontaneous unplanned event when you haven't already pre-shaved and then having to rush around shaving your legs (causing painful cuts and lots of mess if you're anything like me in a rush!) or just having to totally re-think your entire outfit - very very annoying! 
But not anymore girls, this compact IPL device reduces hair growth after just 2 treatments and after 6 your hair growth will be sparse meaning your legs are way smoother for longer and you can enjoy them for so much longer! Hair also grows back so much finer so even stumble isn't anywhere near as bad. 

I've used mine 6 times and I promise you when I say it my leg, bikini and armpit hair is 100 times finer and lasts a week - 10 days without having to shave!! My leg hair before using this would be stubble in the afternoon after shaving in the morning so its made my life sooo much easier and saved me so much time shaving, moisturising and having to replace razors etc. 

For laser and wax users out there this £200 device will save you so much money and time visiting the salon and you can use your IPL system in the comfort of your own home in your own convenient time. PERFECT! 


Intense Pulse Light (IPL) TechnologyFor the Lumea range, Philips technical experts have worked closely with skin scientists and dermatologists to tailor Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, an innovative and advanced light-based hair removal method originally used in professional salons, for safe, effective and easy use at home. Lumea applies gentle pulses of light to the hair root to produce heat that is transferred to the hair follicle. This stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase and as a consequence the hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited. 

Philips advise to use the Lumea every two weeks for 6 treatments and then top up as necessary thereafter to prevent hair from growing back and to stop the stubble in-between treatments.


Simply hold it directly on the skin and press the button and a red flash will happen, repeat over the entire area. It will take roughly 25 mins for legs, 4 mins for armpits and 3-6 mins for bikini area.
