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.


  • 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


  • 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 9 years now. I love the science, testing and reviewing them, and sharing my experience and feedback on my site 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.

Philips Lumea Prestige review
Philips Lumea Prestige review

The Philips Lumea Prestige is the comfiest and most precise device I’ve tested. It’s safe for light to dark skin, and works on dark hair. I love the corded or cordless gun-shape, curved windows, fast sessions and clever itensity matching sensor. Expensive but worth it, it’s my favourite IPL device.

Smoothskin Pure & Pure Fit home IPL review
Smoothskin Pure & Pure Fit home IPL review

The Smoothskin Pure is the best value premium at-home IPL money can buy. The clever skin sensor auto-adjusts each powerful flash to match your skin tone, so it’s super-safe for light to dark skin. It’s point-and-zap, light-weight and nimble, and with speed mode on legs it takes just 19 minutes for a whole body zapping. It’s the easiest and fastest home IPL I’ve ever tested. 😍

Iluminage Touch & Me Sleek review
Iluminage Touch & Me Sleek review

This machine uses combined IPL & RF tech (called Elōs), which makes it safe and effective for all skin tones including the darkest, and it works on fair hair too. This model is suited to face, small and large body areas.
