Works but stops chargingI saved for a long time to buy this as it cost more than I earn in a week . I used it regularly and saw very good results even if it is a bit time consuming . Based on the success of my hair removal I have recommended this product widely and several friends have purchased a unit based on my success. I did not use my lumea for 2 months and it has totally stopped working! It will not charge . It is 3 and a half years old so no longer in warranty- I understand there is a certain number of flashes that constitute a lifetime but it seems ridiculous that this charging error is an innate fault of the unit and certainly not what I would expect from a trusted brand like Phillips. I am informed it cannot be mended which seems highly un ecological in this day and age and the only thing Phillips have offered me is 20% off a new unit - I certainly won't be purchasing another even if I could afford a replacement. Very very disappointed .

My go-to solution for easy, top result hair removal!I have been using the Precision Plus (SC2006) for 4 months.
I now only use it every 4 weeks and between this I have no hair (apart from the odd stray!) on my legs, underarms and bikini area.
I have had professional laser, waxing, epilated for years, shaved, used creams...you name it, I've tried it!
Well this wins hands down.
It does require patience as results take time and commitment to a 2 week schedule but it is worth it. Its mess free, painless, gives no ingrown hairs and actually gives the best hair removal results I've had.
I would say though that if you're not willing to commit to using it routinely it is not worth spending so much money on because the results wont be as good.
You need to commit to a session every 2 weeks for the first 4/5 weeks and then a session every 4/8 weeks after that for results to last. I do this and its perfectly manageable and worth while.

This product worksI have been using for 6 weeks and I am really pleased with the results. I am pale skin with dark hair and use on setting 4 and my legs are nearly hair free. Tip for top lip - epilate week before so hair growth just below surface then use ipl. Very smooth top lip now.

Does the job - but has stopped chargingA really good product. I have used this in legs, underarms and bikini area.
Good results when used once a week.
The head is small so legs can be time consuming but not too bad.
Sadly mine has stopped charging and is out of its years warranty. Really dissatisfied as it was a lot of money.

This is brilliant for dark haired ladies.I have used and reviewed the Lumea before on how I have found it successful myself but my sister for years has very dark patches under her arms where she shaves and although she would be hair free after shaving, she would be left with this dirty looking patch on her skin. My sister has been using my Lumea for about 6 weeks now and already the darkening on her skin has virtually disappeared. So not only is she becoming hair free, the dark skin she used to have left from shaving is now almost back to her normal skin colour.

Best And Effective Hair Removal ProductPhilips Lumea IPL is the most effective and best product I have ever used to remove unwanted hair and I would recommend it.
After waxing for many years I decided to try a product that will remove unwanted hair for ever. This product has worked for me and in a painless way. I have never been very hairy but after 2 months and 3 times using it I hardly have any hair in the areas that I have used this product.
The only inconvenience is that the battery does not last long enough for me to do full legs, under arms and bikini line.

It workedI have bought my lumen when it came first time to market in April 2010 and my hair reduced by half by the summer that year. Now I have only few hair left on my legs where I probably did not laser it enough so I give it a go from time to time. My underarms do also grow few hair but with regular use I think I will get rid of it. I'm very happy that my hair on legs is gone and my lumen still works
..baterky does not last as long when I bought it...but i have it for 5 years and it still works.

Does not fulfil initial promiseI have used the product on my face which is the main issue for me especially my chin. I used to pluck which was time consuming and leading to ingrown hair and even scarring. I was terrified about shaving my chin and upper lip initially but actually find it less time consuming than plucking and my skin looks less blemished. However I have been using it religiously for over 4 months and the hair on my chin is still as bad as it was before (I have to shave twice a day and can feel stubble by 5pm). I have also used it on my belly and the top of my feet which seems to have had a better result (but were never a real concern). Rather disappointed so far but will keep going as is quick and easy to use.
