Veet Infini’Silk Review Summary

This is a simple, no frills at-home IPL device (manufactured by Silk’n) that’s safe for fair to medium skin tones. It gives plenty flashes but slow sessions, so it’s best for treating smaller body areas only. Try the newer Silk’n Flash & Go Express for faster sessions, and the Silk’n Infinity for faster sessions and dark skin tones.

Lamp lifetime

⚡⚡⚡⚡

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.

Pros

  • Design is comfortable to hold
  • Simple to operate
  • Love the sturdy storage case
  • Multi-plug adaptors make it a convenient travelling buddy
  • FDA cleared and CE certified

Cons

  • It’s sometimes difficult to flash on small, curved and uneven areas like knees and shins
  • Takes practise around the upper lip
  • Skin tone sensor doesn’t select your intensity level
  • Sessions are slow so use it on smaller body areas only

I'm a bit obsessed with at-home beauty devices. It's a habit I've had for around 8 years now. I love the science, testing and reviewing them, and sharing my experience and feedback on my site Wearebodybeautiful.com. I'm also a crazy dog lady, and I don't care.
JOVS Venus Pro IPL review
JOVS Venus Pro IPL review

The JOVS Venus Pro is a fast & easy IPL hair reduction AND skin rejuvenation device in-one. It’s safe for light to dark skin and works on dark hair. I love the targetd modes, auto-flash function, & clever rotating head. It’s an alternative design approach that all comes together rather well.
