IPL update and session one results

I was initially only going to try out the E>one on my legs, but after writing my review I decided seeing as I already had the machine, I might as well do my underarms too.

On the legs it wasn't painful but it was a completely different sensation on the underarms. Although not unbearable it was definitely painful and hot, but thankfully the surface area of my underarms is a lot smaller, so at the least the session was over quickly.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue using it on my underarms but a week later when I saw the results I completely changed my mind. Normally there's loads of hair but as you can see in the photo there's very little regrowth! Even now, several weeks later, most of the hair still hasn't grown back and it's a similar story for my legs. Although there's more regrowth, there are also plenty of bald patches.


IPL can be time consuming (for the legs) and painful (for the underarms) but for me the results are definitely worth the pain, and luckily with the E>one I only need to treat it once every 4-6 weeks.

I'll be doing a second session soon and I'll keep you updated with how I get on with it.

Have any of you tried IPL hair removal? How are you staying hair free this summer?

  1. Wow, that looks really good. I have been loking into this myself, although not this brand. I had looked at the Philips Lumea but decided against it because of how expensive it was. Where did you get yours from? Would you say it's worth it?

  2. Jessica D- I was lent this by the company to try out. I've only done one session so far so I can't say whether it'll be worth it long term just yet but if it really does give permanent hair removal then I would definitely consider buying. Keep an eye out for other blogposts as I know a lot of bloggers are trying out IPL machines this summer x
