Philips Lumea Prestige review – my overall favourite

Philips Lumea Prestige


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.

Tried & Tested Smoothkin Pure home IPL

Smoothskin Pure review; fastest, easiest, best value premium IPL

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. 😍

All the pros & cons in this tried & tested Tria Beauty 4X laser review

Tria 4X laser hair removal review – most powerful

Tria 4X laser hair removal


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 light to medium skin tones, and works on dark hair. It's the most powerful home device you can buy and so promises your longest lasting results. But it has some real cons, so it's not for everyone. Learn more in the review below.

Smoothskin Bare IPL review; Ultra-fast & superb for dark skin



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.

Panasonic ES-WH90 IPL review – ideal for facial use

Panasonic ES-WH90


Team Panasonic didn’t give the Panasonic ES-WH90 a sexy name. But the design is rather good. The cordless, ergonomic shape and flash operation combine for perfect facial use. It's good for smaller areas too and is a solid, quality bit of kit for under £150. The IPL facial attachment doubles as a skin brightening tool on safe skin tones too.
