Hair today gone tomorrow

I used to have professional IPL done, so most of my hair leg has gone, but since lockdown, I decided to buy a home IPL machine to do other areas too. After only three sessions, my arm and underarm hair is significantly reduced, with some bare patches already. This is not painful at all until you get to the bikini area and upper lip then it stings a bit, but it's nowhere near as painful as IPL in the clinic was, and I'm not left with bright red burn marks for two weeks after each treatment. I highly recommend the Muse. Some reviews said the machine was quite big, but if my tiny hands can hold it comfortably, anyone can.

Life changing

I eventually settled on this device because of one review titled "life changing" so I wanted to spread the love. I have grown up with very thick dark hair. Every wax I've ever had has been full of tutting and complaints about how thick my hair is and how it just won't come out. Hair would be growing back before the rash and scabs from waxing had a chance to heal. Shaving has always been torture too. Having to use a fresh razor every single time. One with at least 5 blades. Soak in a hot bath to soften the hair and go over each section holding the skin taught and no more than once. And still I couldn't shave more than once a week or I would break out in spots of blood for every hair I went over. Not to mention constant razor rash even when everything went well. My mum had a very old ipl when I was a kid. I always got a strong smell of burning hair from it. And the light was so bright you couldn't use it without a blindfold. It also couldn't be used while charging, and ran out of charge after just half a leg, so it was something you had to do over a few days. Ever since trying it as a teenager, I've been put off the idea. But I figured that technology has come a long way, so after lots of research and comparing, I bought myself a smoothskin muse. After only 2 sessions with this ipl, shaving was EASY. My whole body in less than 20 min. I felt like a girl off a razor advert. Could shave a line from my ankle to the top of my thigh in one swooping motion. After 3 sessions, it took 5 whole days for my hair to get to its afternoon shadow stage. My moustache never even grew back in time for my 4th session. So I got to use the laser on it without shaving. Even if I don't get any more progress from this device, it has already been more than worth the money I paid for it. My only advice to very pale women like myself, the skin tone sensing feature is a bit useless on us. It's constantly on full power, even going over more sensitive areas like fanny/bum hole. I think I would benefit more from the speed of the smoothskin bare, as muse does take a few seconds of thinking time to load each zap.

Very useful gadget

It's now 2 years on since I first bought the SmoothSkin Gold. I would definitely recommend it as an essential item for anyone's beauty kit. After the initial 12 weeks regime, hair growth had definitely reduced and slowed down. Since then and for the least 18 months I use the Smoothskin Gold as maintenance, but there is hardly any hair growth in the areas I have used it. Given the length of time I have used the device, it has proven to be time and cost effective, less painful too :) The reason I have given it 4 stars and not 5 is I do find now that there isn't much hair to zap, the process is a bit too long (but worth it). I am waiting for the number of flashes to finish so I can move on to the SmoothSkin Bare which should be quicker and hopefully still effective given I've used the more powerful device the last 2 years.

Persistence shall reward!

I am on week 10 and most of the hairs on my upper lip, underarm, nipple (I have a very fair areola so I've used the device there), and bikini area have stopped growing, almost entirely. They key is persistence here, ladies - trust the system, stick with the routine and you shall see results! By week 4-5 my hair was starting to look patchy so I knew it was working, and this gave me the encouragement to stick with the routine. So worth the price - hair removal used to be a thorn on my side all my life! Thank you Smoothskin!

Brilliant!

A friend recommended SmoothSkin Bare to me and I was excited to see there was a new version when I went to buy it. It's really fast and I could see less hair growing on my legs and bikini line after about 5 weeks. It does sting a little but it's definitely worth the pain and the money. Amazing!

Male user, 12 Week Review

I have waited until week 12 to give a comprehensive review for both the SmoothSkin Bare and the SmoothSkin Muse, because the company state that you will see the results at the 12-week mark, so this review tells it how it is! First off then, I am a man and I have been targeting the chest, back, upper arms and testicle areas for laser hair removal. I have always wanted to have a smooth chest, but my experience with hair removal is terrible. I have white skin and dark hair (ideal for this in theory). I wasn’t a complete yeti but I had a lot of hair on the chest, not so much on the back and upper arm hair was just annoying bits. In the past I’ve tried shaving (awful, just grows back the very next day), waxing – NEVER AGAIN – not for the pain, but the reaction I had from it was absolutely awful and looked terrible. I tried hair removal cream (allergic!) and the only thing I found that worked was a natural hair removal cream from Sri Lanka without chemicals in it but that soon ran out and in any case, it grew back quickly. So for many years I resigned myself to just trimming my hair. I didn’t believe that laser hair removal would work and it was expensive, but bit by bit I saved up Boots points until years later I actually had enough to buy the SmoothSkin Bare with my points. I had such low expectations for the product that buying it with points and feeling as if it were ‘free’ was ok for me to give it a go because then if it didn’t work I wouldn’t feel like I’d wasted my money. And so I set off with week one…. WEEK 1-3 Expecting ingrown hairs, I purchased ‘Skin Doctor Ingrow Go’ ready for the process and used it regularly. I can tell you that you won’t see much of a change in weeks 1-3 but I used it every Saturday. The SS Bare is so fast! It doesn’t take any time at all to go all over and you can treat each area up to 3 times, which I did. They don’t recommend use on genitals but it didn’t hurt and I’ve had no problems with either system. WEEK 4 Nightmare!!!!! By week 4 it had started to work. Why is this a nightmare I hear you ask? Well, I had such a bad outbreak of ingrown hairs that it was a serious mess and I mean really bad. So bad in fact that it has caused a small permanent red mark in the middle of my chest which still remains now at week 12. I contacted customer care with the photographs and because of its severity they allowed me to exchange my SmoothSkin bare for the SmoothSkin Muse as it was more powerful and will last up to a month, therefore not needing to go through that every week. I cannot fault the customer service I received from them, they were fantastic but the reason for my 4 star review rather than 5 is because, due to the use of the product I have this permanent mark and it has caused a couple of very small dark patches on my skin too, though nothing really to worry about. WEEK 5-12 Now with the SmoothSkin Muse, you can only treat each area once because it’s more powerful and I like the fact that it’s still got unlimited flashes, that’s great! I can tell you that compared to the SS Bare, the Muse is MUCH slower to go over areas, almost frustratingly so but I don’t think I would have felt like this had I not used the Bare first because, really we are talking about maybe just over a second between flashes with the Muse, whereas the Bare was just like flash, flash, flash. Boy did I notice a difference from week 5 onwards!!! This product really does work. Week by week I noticed less and less hair. In fact by week 6 the lower half of my chest no longer grew hairs and now that I am on week 12 there was practically nothing at all to shave, it’s crazy! What I see are a few tiny lighter hairs that come through but hardly any of them. I still get a few red bumps with ingrown hairs but nothing like at week 4 and they go away pretty fast. From week 11-12 I thought “I’m not actually going to need to do it this week” – bearing in mind that before this product if I had shaved it would have been an every day affair and with stubble by the evening. I now have smooth in all the places I used the product on. The Muse has light sensors to deliver the right amount of power and this is a good safety feature. I noticed on the testicles with darker skin that sometimes it would refuse to flash. I think the only temptation with this device is to keep going haha! I could quite easily have started on my legs with the success I was having but fortunately my other half made me consider looking like a man was probably the best option, leave the legs alone so I’ve kept it with just those areas! I would highly recommend this product. I am someone who hair removal was a nightmare for. I grow lots of body hair and am sensitive to most things when it comes to removal. This product works, full stop. I cannot believe how much it has exceeded my expectations.

Be patient

I bought this mainly for my daughter(17), she has very dark hair and was spending many painful hours epilating. We are now at week twelve and are amazed at the results. We are nearly at the point of not shaving , only flashing! The main tip from us would be to ensure you are bone dry from the shower, if a little damp it tends to make the flash hot. We do our shaving and flashing on a Sunday morning usually with face masks and giggling.

12 Week Review - whole face and body

First! Sign up for Smoothskin Bare's motivational emails when you begin your first treatment. They'll be in synch with you. I have pale skin and dark hair and have completed 12 weeks of treating the face and body. The response was immediate, with most body hair regrowing slowly. Legs have responded really well. Some thicker facial hair is slower to respond, such as on the side of the face. I recommend going over each area 3 x for maximum results. This is recommended by Smoothskin themselves, so do make a note, as the emails might not remind you until week four and you'll have lost time. For my maintenance, I'm going over each area once, apart from the face and neck, which I'll zap 3 x, as it only takes five minutes. If you can, set aside the same day(s) each week for a regular routine. Expect end to ingrowing hair itching too! Cleared up problem patches of ingrowing hair on legs very well. WHY FOUR STARS? I can see little black specks where hair could grow through, even on the best parts (legs, arms), so I'm hoping the pore's ability to bear hair dies off for good and leaves the skin clear of those little signs of hair follicles. Keep it up. Good luck.

Amazing results!

In January I started using SmoothSkin Gold, now (April) I am really starting to see results. The device is quick and easy to use and there is only slight discomfort, in some places. At the moment I only need to shave my legs once a week but I am hoping in the near future my legs will be silky smooth. For a more in-depth review see my blog post: https://matmina22.blogspot.co.uk/

Highly recommended by a friend!

Just tried out my new SmoothSkin Muse which I bought after seeing a friend’s results from her Smoothskin. The device is very sleek and easy to use. I didn’t really experience any discomfort when using it apart from a vague sort of pin prick sensation in bony areas. There is a gentle mode but I didn’t feel the need to try it. I was expecting some kind of redness afterwards but there was nothing. I have dark hairy legs which need regular shaving; I’m hoping the results will be as good as my friends. Will keep you updated.

How Easy Was That?!

I tried out my SmoothSkin Muse on the weekend and can’t believe how easy and quick it was to use. Having only used it just this weekend I will update my review a little later on when I start to see the results! The Smoothskin Muse itself comes in a sleek box with really sophisticated packaging, and looks the business. The treatment itself, was not painful but you could feel a pinch, I suppose that shows it must be working. I would certainly say in comparison to waxing or epilating that Smoothskin was more or less pain free and way more comfortable to use. I can't exclaim how easy , hygienic and quite pleasant Smoothskin was to use. It is reassuring to know that there is also a gentle mode. I can’t wait to see what happens over the next few weeks!

Salon savings at home

Prior to buying my Smooth Skin Bare I was attending 4th weekly lazer tratments at a salon and boy was it expensice. I decided to buy my Smooth Skin Bare for the price of one treatment, its way more value and you'll have it forever. I use my Bare once week and it takes about 30 minuts to do my whole body over twice (full legs, underarms, stomach and arms). I use to shave every 2nd day and now its only twice a week. The treatments don't hurt at all and its so convenient to have the bare at home. I do my treatments on day and at time that suits me. I'm one happy smoothie.

12 week review

I have been using SmookthSkin Bare weekly now for 12 weeks on my whole body. I have fair skin and dark hair. There has definitely been a slowing of the regrowth, I now only need to shave twice a week, whereas before SmoothSkin it was a daily task. Although some areas of my body have responded well, with a significant reduction in hair, other areas I cannot see a difference in the amount of hair, just slowing of regrowth. I would have liked to have seen less hair after 12 weeks, but I will keep up the weekly schedule and see what happens in the next few months. Also, each treatment took about 1 hour for my whole body, my legs alone took about 30mins. I can’t see how it’s possible to do legs in 10mins as advertised. I’m not a large person either. Still, I think it’s been worth it for the slowing of regrowth.

Fantastic new addition to the SmoothSkin family!

I've been a fan of the SmoothSkin Bare for a while now because it's made hair removal such a breeze. Now I'm in love with the Muse - it looks even more sophisticated and makes it so easy to start prepping for summer now!

Great customer service and the product works!

Product worked great for me, I have medium tanned skin and quite dark but fine hair. After three months my device had a fault, but was quickly resolved by Abby in customer service who arrange collection of the old device and shipped me out a new one the very next day! She was brilliant!

Slow going but working

I've been using the smooth skin bare since about August on and off but have religiously used it for the last 12 weeks. It's working slowly but I can definitely see a difference. With an underactive thyroid my hair tends to grow faster anyway but I have might skin and dark hair. I used to have to shave daily if i want to keep my legs smooth and always had stubble about r hours ago shaving. I can now go a few days between shaves. It's slowed down the growth my legs and they are patchy so I know it's working. Going on holiday I the next few months so hopefully it will have demo ed more hair by then

8 Week Review

Impressed with the quality of the device and the speed at which you can get everything done. I was surprised at how heavy it is (just the initial impression and you don't notice it after a while) and the big cable, but I took that to mean that this device means business! The SmoothSkin Bare offers unlimited flashes (Bravo guys!), wow most devices either need replacement bulbs or have to be recycled. This sits really well with me as I care about the environment and hate waste. I did notice the flashes slow down during the glide sessions due to it getting a little warmer (maybe because I'm hairier than most). So I decided to let it cool and carry on from there. It was a pleasant enough experience, my skin felt slightly warm after using, but no redness. I experienced an odd tingle/sting in a couple of places, but everything went as it was supposed to. I gave 3 passes over the really stubborn hairs. (bikini, armpits and facial). I have very fair skin and brown/black hairs, I really didn't notice any difference until after the 6th treatment and that is only on my legs. The hair growth slowed down and appears to be almost gone in most places. Whoohoo!! Smoothest legs I've ever had in my life! However the 'stubborn' hairs in the bikini, armpits and on my face have seen no such reduction or slow down, at this stage. But then I didn't hold up hope for the device to work on me at all. (I've tried many things in the past which didn't work) But, I know that this device worked on my legs after a while, so I will continue to use it, as I hope it will clear these stubborn hairs eventually. I expected it to take a lot longer to work on me and will continue to use it and give an updated review. I have already recommended it to my friends as I'm convinced if it works on me, it will work on anyone.

It works!

I've been using this for 8 weeks now. At first I had no idea what to expect or how to properly use it. The first 4 weeks I noticed bald patches mostly on my legs and thinning. My arm pits however very stubborn and haven't noticed much difference besides a little bit of thinning.. but the legs defiantly noticed a difference. Recommend this but it does require patience and being consistent.
