Silky Smooth Skin This Summer

Having silky smooth skin this Summer is something I wish I had permanently

I have even had sessions of laser hair removal on my legs to try and stop the hair growth

For me personally I am just not a fan of body hair, especially on my legs

Shaving my legs every day, ok well not every day especially in those winter months, really does feel like a chore. In the summer when I like to have my legs on display I would prefer them to be smooth and not stubbly or having a shaving rash

I find it helps with my body confidence when I am hair free

Laser Hair Removal

The cost of having laser hair removal can be expensive. It is also something you need to have a number of times before you get the ‘permanent’ results you want. It also isn’t permanent as such, as there is no guarantee your hair follicles wont ever start growing again

I bought myself an IPL device to use in the comfort of my own home

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. This is the same hair removal technology I had used on me in a salon

The cost of the device was the same as just 1 session so I thought it was worth a try and see. Plus this way I get to use it on those more intimate areas as well rather than just my legs

I have been using it every other week for about 2 months so far and have got fantastic results

I am naturally dark haired and light skinned. This is apparently the most responsive type of body hair for this treatment

In between each use you can not wax, only shave. This is because you are un-doing all the treatment by ripping the treated follicle out if you wax

My biggest issue with treating myself at home is I find it time consuming. Dedicating time to using your IPL can be a bit tedious, but from the results so far it really is worth it

I am looking forward to seeing even longer lasting results over time with my at home device

Let me know your thoughts on body hair. Whether that be on legs or generally

    Body hair can be a useful protection but can be a breeding ground for germs.

    I don’t mind body hair it’s easy to remove I know it comes back quickly but it’s very expensive to remove hair permanently

    Body hair is just annoying. I suffer from polycystic ovaries and it’s just a nightmare. Would love one of these!

    It’s fine in the winter months but come summer, it has to go.

    I would love to have one of these macjines to do IPL at home. I hate shaving and the problem with waxing is you have to let the hair grow back enough for the wax to work.

    I look like a bear! I hate it. It’s dark and obvious. I’d love to be smooth and hair free.

    04/03/2020 / 22:16

    I try to keep on top of it. In the winter I must admit I neglect my legs a bit. I’m embarrassed by the dark hairs on my chin and over my lips.

    I always carry a tweezer in my handbag for touch ups on the go.

  13. Priscilla Stubbs
    05/03/2020 / 11:18

    I do not worry too much about body hair, as I’ve got older it is less of a problem, except in one intimate area and the few odd ones on my face.

  14. Fiona Martin
    05/03/2020 / 13:54

    I hate it as mine’s quite dark, would love to be able to banish away the hairs!

    I hate it! I have PCOS and dark hair so it’s an ongoing, daily battle. I go for a wax every 6 weeks and get rid of my facial hair every day using tweezers, a shaver and a no7 mirror lol. Such a pain!

  16. Laura Pritchard
    05/03/2020 / 21:00

    It’s a never-ending struggle – I also have polycystic ovary syndrome so get extra body & facial hair…aren’t I lucky!?

    I used to work with a girl that said she didn’t shave her legs in the winter as she needed to keep as warm as possible. As someone who could have been her mother due to my age , she taught me this great tip and yes you do keep warmer. However the other day my husband commented that I have hairyer legs than him!

    I don’t mind it in the winter as I wear jeans all the time, but have to get rid of it in the summer.

    No more waxing would be perfect.

    Body hair is so annoying but its also such a chore to keep on top of it. This would be fantastic!

    Hate mine, have recently had dermaplaning done and wow what a difference. Peach fuzz has gone (temporarily)

  25. Maria
    10/03/2020 / 10:59

    With my busy lifestyle its difficult to keep it at bay. This would be a fab help!

  26. 10/03/2020 / 20:09

    This looks fantastic. I usually just shave but totally fed up with having to do it

  27. Charlotte isobelle

  29. Susan B

    The bane of my life! Always hated it and tried many home and salon products. This would be very welcome.

    Due to a long spell of steroid medication, I have a major problem with facial hair on my neck and chin. I hate it and have problems removing it every week.

  31. Ruth Harwood
    13/03/2020 / 08:59

    In my view, we have body hair to prevent bacteria getting through into our systems, so we shouldn’t get rid of it all, we need some to protect us xx

  32. Lorraine Williams
    14/03/2020 / 07:35

    I think the removal is a chore we all hate.

  33. Jo m welsh

    I don’t like it but think it is such a faff to get rid of it

  34. Samantha M
    15/03/2020 / 22:57

    I’d love this to make hair removal easier. I used to rely on razors and recently moved to an electric one to try to avoid ingrown hairs etc. This would be so much better.

  35. Sandra Fortune
    16/03/2020 / 13:38

    I don’t like body hair especially the bristly stuff

  36. Becky John

  37. Carolyn E
    21/03/2020 / 16:12

    Body hair on men – pretty nice if in moderation. On me, I really hate armpit hair and leg hair and face fluff, so IPL would be fab for me.

  38. Beverley J Roberts
    22/03/2020 / 14:33

    This would ve great to win

  39. Margaret Gallagher

    TOTALLY bliss will be invaluable

  40. Alison Johnson

    I really don’t like body hair on myself as I have dark hair so you can really see the hair on my arms.

  41. Katrina Adams
    27/03/2020 / 08:34

    Hair removal never seems to last that long for me and I tend to have quite dark hair. I would love to give this a go to see what kind of results I get.

  42. claire woods

    Removal cream never seems to last very long for me

    30/03/2020 / 17:24

  49. lynn neal
    10/04/2020 / 08:51

    Its just a nuisance in the summer months especially, when you have to keep shaving!

  50. Beccy Rowley
    12/04/2020 / 10:47

    I hate it, it’s a never ending battle. I’m also getting paranoid about facial hair now as everyone seems to be getting that removed too.

  51. Ceecee
    12/04/2020 / 11:32

    I wish I didn’t have to think about body hair – it makes me self conscious!

  52. Kerry H

    I hate removing hair and honestly only do it in the summer.

  53. Sophie Roberts
    15/04/2020 / 13:25

    I’m not a fan! I get rid of it as often as possible!

  54. Stella

    I hate it. It’s a real chore to keep my legs hair free.

  55. K Col

    would be amazing to try this

  56. Emma England
    16/04/2020 / 09:50

    Like most women, I hate body hair. These devices sound incredible. I don’t mind that it’s time consuming because all forms of removing body hair are anyway. I think it would definitely be worth it to get the long lasting results.

  57. Amy Sam
    16/04/2020 / 13:42

    Would love to try something like this.

  58. Karen Stirling
    16/04/2020 / 18:40

    I’ve always wanted to try one of these – it would save me so much time and energy in the long run.

  59. Kerstin B
    16/04/2020 / 21:47

    I don’t like hair on legs or armpits.

  60. 17/04/2020 / 09:17

    Body hair is fine on the Head, but no where else.

  61. donna jones
    17/04/2020 / 10:46

    can take it or leave it

  62. LoobyLee
    17/04/2020 / 10:52

    It’s body hair, there are no rules so, do as you please

    17/04/2020 / 14:47

    I’ve always been lucky as have very fine body hair but feel sorry for the people who have dark thick body hair

  64. Anthea Holloway
    17/04/2020 / 15:26

    I prefer to get rid of my body hair but it takes time and needs repeating so often!

  65. Maddy
    17/04/2020 / 15:41

    This seems a really clever device. It’s good to hear from someone who’s actually used it.

  66. Diane Nicholl
    17/04/2020 / 19:52

    I have have problems for years with dark hair growth but the devices I’ve bought never lived up to the manufacturer’s claims.

  67. Chantel L
    17/04/2020 / 21:13

    I prefer smooth skin but it’s such a boring chore to keep defuzzing!

  68. Emma Russell
    17/04/2020 / 21:24

    Annoying!!! Especially when I shave in the morning and it feels like it has grown back by the evening!!!

  69. Patricia Barrett
    17/04/2020 / 23:59

    I like to use removal creams instead of shaving . waxing.

  70. Geoff Hibbert

    I prefer ladies to be natural

  71. Mel Pennie
    18/04/2020 / 06:24

    Hate shaving / waxing as they both bring me out in rashes. However, having dark hair I get really hairy armpits and legs so have to keep the regime up! The IPL device sounds like the perfect solution for me and I’d love to try it!

  72. Michelle Peterson
    18/04/2020 / 07:09

    Fab prize. Smooth skin would be great. Good luck all x

  73. sarah morris

    Hate hairy legs but I’m forever cutting mine when I shave so this, would help

  74. Charlotte Wilde
    18/04/2020 / 10:15

    its annoying – i’m just helping my tweenager to deal with the first signs of it and i feel for her – she shouldn’t have to bother but people can be cruel.

  75. Samantha Atherton
    18/04/2020 / 10:15

    I really hate my body hair, in the summer I shave practically everyday as I can’t stand even a millimetre of hair, I’ve even been known to pluck my armpits hairs so you can’t see those dark follicles under the skin after shaving.

  76. Dawn Samples
    18/04/2020 / 10:41

    I can’t stand it, I feel so much more feminine and alot happier when I have just waxed or shaved x

  77. Adrian Bold
    18/04/2020 / 10:46

    I don’t mind body hair. but do shave some areas.

  78. Emma Davison
    18/04/2020 / 10:49

    This sounds really useful. Great to have a means of hair removal at home.

  79. Rachel Lewis
    18/04/2020 / 10:49

    I absolutely hate shaving so this would be a godsend.

  80. Lesley Cohen Wright

    Doesn’t bother me too much apart from the fact it suddenly appears overnight

  81. Naomi Williams
    18/04/2020 / 16:09

    I hate body hair and shave armpits and legs most days, this device looks brilliant

  82. Joyce W
    18/04/2020 / 16:36

    I’m lucky that only the lower half of my legs has ever needed hair removal but this would be wonderful to use at home

  83. Darren Bourne
    18/04/2020 / 19:23

    I don’t mind it but I know my partner would love me to win this fir her as she likes to get her legs nice and smooth.

  84. Heli L
    18/04/2020 / 19:39

    I’m not a fan of body hair. I feel neater and cleaner after I’ve gotten rid of mine.

  85. A S,Edinburgh
    18/04/2020 / 19:56

    I have no opinion either way on other people’s, and I don’t mind mine, I just really like the feeling of my skin being smooth. I enjoy the absence of it on myself more than I dislike the presence, if that makes sense!

  86. Kirsty Dight
    18/04/2020 / 20:02

    Anything to help me save precious time. As you cant get that back!

    I have tried most methods of removal but not this , would be great for the summer removal.

  90. Tracy B
    18/04/2020 / 21:13

    I don’t like body hair think it’s unhygienic but shaving and waxing really irritates my skin so an IPL sounds like an ideal solution

  91. Violet Phillippo
    18/04/2020 / 21:14

    I have dark body hair (and eyebrows) but blonde hair. I find it so frustrating as it’s so noticeable – if you miss a bit when shaving or a few eyebrow hairs grow out of place.

  92. Kim
    18/04/2020 / 21:46

    It’s annoying, obviously there for a reason but still annoying! Would love this, it would be a great help, thank you.
