The compact, simple Silk'n Infinity uses a combination of gentle IPL and Galvanic energies. Together, they give effective hair removal that's safe for dark and black skin on the lowest intensity levels. And it's just as effective as the more powerful IPL rivals on the higher levels. Oh, and sessions are quick and it's affordable too. Read this detailed Silk'n Infinity review to learn all.

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.

WeAreBodyBeautiful.com's tried & tested review of the Iluminage Precise Touch home IPL

Iluminage Precise Touch review; for ALL skin tones, & fair hair

Iluminage Precise Touch

4.3

This is the smaller, handheld device from Iluminage, with the same clever tech as the larger Touch model. It uses Radio Frequency current to make gentle IPL flashes more effective. This means it’s safe for ALL skin tones, including the very darkest black. And, when combined with plucking or epilating, it’s clinically proven to work on fair hair too! It’s best for face and smaller body areas like underarms and bikini line.

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. 😍

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

SmoothskinBare

4.3

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.
