Philips Lumea Prestige review – my overall favourite

Philips Lumea Prestige

4.9

The Philips Lumea Prestige is my personal favourite home IPL. It's the comfiest and most precise home device I've tested, thanks to the intuitive gun-shape, curved flash windows and fast flashes. Simply the easiest for legs. It's safe for light to dark skin and matches your skin & intensity. Plus, the high power IPL promises your longest-lasting results on fair tones. Oh, and you can use it cordless too. Top-notch zappingz.

Smoothskin Pure

Striking good looks, strength, brains and speed are hard to find in one attractive IPL package. But that’s what you get with the Smoothskin Pure. The clever sensor auto adjusts each flash to match your skin tone, so it’s super-safe for light to dark skin (and works on dark hair). And using speed mode on legs, a whole-body zappin’ takes just 19 minutes. It’s the easiest and fastest home IPL we’ve ever tested. 😍

Don’t let the no-frills design and affordable price tag fool you. This plug-and-zap, unltra-fast, low intensity home IPL is safe for light to dark skin, and dark hair. The low intensity particularly suits darker skin, but means you'll need more frequent top-ups on light skin. Hailed as a game-changing home IPL. Spot on.
