Philips Lumea Comfort Review Summary
This simple, no frills at-home IPL device from Philips is no longer available. Instead, try the Silk’n Infinity, Smoothskin Bare+ or the latest Philips Lumea Prestige models.
Plenty of flashes to give 5+ years of monthly use.
Ease of use
A light-weight, mains-powered basic choice with built-in safety features for up to medium skin tones. Faster options are available for larger areas, and it’s a bit bulky so it’s hard to flash your upper lip and other uneven surfaces.
Effort & Results
Do 4 treatments at 2-week intervals (taking 6 weeks), continue if you’re not yet hair-free. Then, do top-ups monthly to stay smooth.
- Design is comfortable to hold
- Simple to operate
- Non-stop mains-power
- CE certified
- It’s sometimes difficult to flash on small, curved and uneven areas like knees and shins
- Takes practise around the upper lip
- Sessions are slow so use it on smaller body areas only
