It might still be cold out and yes, you’ve got your heating on indoors, but don’t be fooled; the summer is coming around faster than you think and with it comes the promise of warmer weather, beach holidays and summer clothes.
Way back at the end of November (here) I wrote about the SmoothSkin Gold – an at-home IPL for which I had great hopes. I had meant to give you a weekly blow-by-blow of how the de-fuzzing was going, but I had a rethink: without pictures of the offending hairy area, I thought the weekly defuzz diary could be rather boring (and with the pictures, well, possibly rather offending?!)
So here I am, four months later, back to report on the result. The area I chose to treat? The very delicate (by which I mean painful!) bikini area. Now you see why I didn’t want to be posting pictures!
The outcome? Well, let’s just say I won’t be running away from a bikini or bathing suit this summer! The SmoothSkin Gold is super easy to use (although you do have to be connected to a power source) and the large head makes it really easy to cover the area in the minimum number of “shots”. The ergonomically designed handset means that even those awkward-to-reach areas are a doddle, and there’s no arm ache or frozen muscles from balancing yourself in odd positions to rid yourself of hair in those hard-to-get-at places.
I was rather worried that with my Indian skin tone, I wouldn’t be abel to use the SmoothSkin Gold on my skin, but it’s worked beautifully, with no burns or other side effects. It’s the easiest (and sleekest) at-home IPL / hair removal gadget I’ve tried. I do still love my Tria for the facial area, as the head is tiny and makes it easy to really target little areas, but the SmoothSkin Gold is definitely the one for the body – the large laser head size (check the picture – it’s literally almost half the length of my finger), means that underarms are done in four or five shots – and as far as I’m concerned, the less the number of shots needed, the less the pain!
At only £299, yes, it’s an investment, but compared to salon prices, it’s a no brainer. Just a cursory glance at salon prices and you could be spending around the same amount for a course of three sessions for your bikini area alone (and you’d need at least six to eight). Once you have the SmoothSkin Gold, you not only have the convenience of being able to treat your hairy skin at a time that suits you, you can also treat your whole body (if you need it) for the total price of £299.
So, a rather long post to basically say, I love the SmoothSkin Gold, couldn’t recommend it enough to any wanna-be hair-free gals (and guys!) out there and I’m looking forward to a smooth summer ahead.
