Laser hair removal is becoming more and more common as the accessibility and affordability of salon laser hair removal services have risen, and with it, so have laser hair removal devices you can use yourself in the comfort of your own home. While the initial outlay of these devices is usually pretty big, most see it as a more viable way to make themselves permanently hair-free without leaving the house. But are these devices really worth it? In this post I’ll give you my thoughts and experiences using the Remington i-LIGHT Smooth Sense IPL Permanent Hair Removal Device* in comparison to professional laser treatments.
I’ve been loyal to my wonderful professional model hair dryer for six years now. And while my Feather Jet is still going strong, I can’t keep my paws off the hair styling innovation from Dyson that’s changing the status quo of the humble hair dryer around the globe.
I have a revelation. I hate shaving. Always have, always will. Shaving as a form of hair removal has been my last resort since I started out as a young teenager. In fact, the first time I ever tried hair removal I went straight to waxing, and can honestly say that I’ve probably shaved my legs only about two dozens times during my life.
Welcome back beauties!
Since the hair straightening brush revolution started there has been so many new companies gracing us with their own version of this hybrid device. The number of hair straightening brushes currently on the market is enough to leave most consumers confused as to which one they should purchase. Two of these brushes include the Hairstyla, which I have actually reviewed in a previous post here, and the LVL hair straightening brush* which is a new product that has hit my desk! In this post, I’ll give you a comparison between the two to help you decide which one you should try out for yourself if you’re on the lookout for one.
It’s a real no-brainer that cleansing our skin is one of the most crucial steps in our skincare regime, so a system that makes cleansing a more effective and safe process is the ultimate tool for healthy skin. One technology that has gained huge popularity since its inception is the use of sonic cleansing appliances. So many people have bought into the hype of sonic cleaning brushes – but do they really know how they actually work or what makes them so beneficial for our skin?
I’ve been against shaving for as long as I can remember, purely because I did not want my leg hairs to grow back progressively thicker and darker over time. Of course, I have never completely avoided shaving (because let’s face it it’s definitely the most convenient form of hair removal)- but it’s generally my last resort and I usually put it off for a very long time (sorry boyfriend). I have myself to thank for the state of my current leg hairs – they are thin, light in colour and there is generally quite a good amount of time before my hairs grow back. There is no ‘secret’ behind this – but I will say it’s most probably due to the fact my most preferred method of removing hair is either waxing or epilating and has been for a long time (and if I’m honest I’d almost kill for laser!).
In the relatively recent years, hair straightening brushes have emerged as a potential rival for the traditional flat iron appliance to straighten our hair. We’ve seen many brands come out with their own versions of straightening brushes, and they can be much more reasonably priced than the traditional high end flat irons. But do they match up?
