The Braun Pro 5 IPL is the fastest high-power home IPL we've tested. It's safe for light to dark skin auto adjusting every flash to your tone, and it works on dark hair. Compact, light-weight & effortless to handle for face, small & large areas. A whole-body is done in around 30 minutes. A serious contender if you're short on time.

The Smoothskin Gold is one the best value powerful home IPLs you can buy right now for under £200. It's safe for light to dark skin and works on dark hair. It's one of the fastest, safest and most simple to use thanks to the clever skin tone sensor. But it's now discontinued, so once this final stock is gone, it's gone for good.

We’re impressed with the Braun Pro 3 IPL because it’s an affordable, fast, simple device. It’s safe for light to dark skin tones (but best suits medium to dark skin tones) and it works on dark hair. The low to medium IPL auto-adjusts to your skin tone so it’s super-safe.

4.5

The Tria 4X is the only FDA-approved home laser hair remover. I recommend it for hair-free results on face and smaller areas done in 30 minute sessions. It's safe for lighter skin tones, and works on dark hair. But it has some real cons, so it's not for everyone.

The compact, simple Silk'n Infinity uses a combination of gentle IPL and Galvanic energies.

Panasonic ES-WH90 IPL review – ideal for facial use

I didn’t expect much from the Panasonic ES-WH90. The name is dull, the packaging boring and the design is, well, rather phallic. But I ended up really liking it. Especially for facial use. That’s because it’s cordless, the flashes last for ages, the facial attachment fits easily on more awkward areas like the upper lip. The price is very attractive too. Oh, and it also doubles as a beauty device for your face. The IPL evens out skin tone for a radiant complexion in around 2 months. Learn more in the full tried-and-tested Panasonic ES-WH90 review.
