Fabulous


Marie | Female | 34 | 5 * * * * *

Had for one year now and it's transformed my life. Underarm hair has been a struggle. Though the hair never completely disappeared, I can now go every 2-3 days instead of daily. My lip hair has seriously reduced. No more spots left from waxing. Haven't touched my bikini line in 10 months. I always waxed but had patches. Now I'm tidy all the time. Legs took the longest to see the difference. Was nearly 3 month of weekly treatments to see the difference but it finally happened. I hated the weeks leading up to a wax appointment. I have fairing skin with dark hair. So the summer months were a series of covering up til waxed then cover again. Recently went away fir two weeks and never thought about my legs once. They still need a shave once in a while but they are smooth all the time. No more stubble within hours of shaving. Love it!!

Thrilled...

I thought long and hard before I purchased this device as I have owned a couple of others. I picked this one due to the speed and ease of use and am thrilled with the results so far, as is my husband! :-)

It is great!

I‘ve bought the smoothskin gold for 2 weeks. Just follow the instructions and my body hair is less than before now. It still grow but it is softer and easy to pull out. Can't wait to see the change.

I bought my Smooth Skin Gold in March 2015 and it's been worth every penny ! What you have to realise is this is not a quick process, yes you do see results very quickly but you have to maintain those results. I bought the Smooth Skin Gold mainly for my facial hair which was ruining my life. Now I am a different person, much happier and more confident. I still use my Smooth Skin Gold once a month and yes I still get the odd stubborn black hair that wont give in but WOW what a difference from when I first started.

Amazing

My fiance bought me the Smoothskin Gold as an unexpected Christmas present. I was very happy to get it and I am so happy with the results. I followed the instructions and used it once a week for the 12 weeks as it advised. I must say I have never had IPL laser treatment before so I can't compare it but I am over the moon with the results. I am half maltese so have very dark hair, my legs were especially bad, the first week I shaved my legs and proceeded to "zap" them, some areas i found quite sensitive to the beam and I would feel a little discomfort, but I found the harder you press the better it is. It is very simple to use and takes very little time. I signed up to the smoothskin email also which helped as a reminder, Week 2 I repeated the process, some areas, like my shin and knees are harder to maintain contact as they are quite angular. Even on week 2 I did start to notice a difference, the hair grew back slower and finer. Usually, if I want to have hair free legs I would have to shave them everyday (twice a day if i wanted smooth legs) I have just reached week 12 and am so excited to say I have minimal regrowth, my legs feel so smooth all the time!! There are a few patches where there is growth but I think that is due to operator error rather than the machine. I also treated my upper lip, bikini and underarm hair with the same excellent results. I highly recommend and have done so already to my friends.

A well designed and ergonomic success

The sleek and stylish SmoothSkin Gold is light to hold as it is mains powered - no heavy internal battery to recharge. That fact has several additional positive points: 1. It's ready to use when you need it - not in 4 hours time when the battery has recharged. 2. It wont go flat midway through a session. 3. Most importantly of all no battery to fail rendering the device useless. This happened to me with another very well known brand. So yes - this is my 2nd IPL device. I know the technology works hence wanting to resume my quest for a smooth-as-silk body. I used my previous brand device ad-hoc over a year or so and enjoyed much reduced hair growth. When the battery failed (grr) I researched and found SmoothSkin to have the perfect replacement. I did a total body sprucing once a week for 4 weeks, which was under an hour per session. My previous rechargeable brand would go flat after doing just chest and tummy. The SmoothSkin is such a time saver! Back to the point - after 4 weekly sessions I have no stubble anywhere after 7 days. I waited 5 weeks before posting this review. If you are new to IPL it may take you longer than 4 weeks to get to this point, but not as long as I did with my frustrating rechargeable device that spent more time recharging than actually being used for its purpose. The auto-intensity works very well and best results (strongest intensity) are had when you are fresh and dry from a shower and the light sensors on the device are kept clean. Shave the area to be treated else stubble will get zapped and you'll notice the scent of burnt hair - a waste of light which should have got to the roots. I love the ergonomics. The angled handle means I can do my back. A slight contortion but not uncomfortably so and I'm really looking forward to not shaving my back anymore - which is an uncomfortable contortion! I suggest getting as much IPL done in the winter months when we're paler and more IPL gets to those roots. Hit the beach in the summer with a smooth bod and tan up! I purchased Gold, not the "For Men" version, and it works brilliantly. To cut to the chase; SmoothSkin Gold is an excellent design, has great ergonomics, lightweight, ready for action at the flick of a switch (no recharging!), no messy gels needed, and it works! I'm neck to toe hair free for 7+ days now after just 4 weekly full body sessions. What a joy it is to go to bed smooth and wake up smooth! Except for my face (I'm a bloke) which is now receiving the full attention of this fantastic device. I'm going to turn the recommendation dial up to 11. The cost works out under £1/day - a small price to pay for that sensuous smooth sensation.

Service rating : The service I received from smooth skin has been good, I received my unit on time and opted to spread the payments over 3 months which was better than paying one lump sum.
Product : I saw the Boots Smooth Skin device advertised but was unsure about buying it due to the price and as I wasn't sure how well it would work. I read all of the online reviews and eventually decided to take the plunge.

I have very coarse dark hair and pale skin, which I've been embarrassed about for a number of years. I have tried shaving, waxing, bleaching and epilating but have found all very costly and time consuming and the hair has started to grow back again within a few days or hours in the case of shaving.

I used Smooth Skin on my legs, under arms and bikini line for the recommended 12 week course and have seen excellent results. It has been most effective on my underarms and bikini line where the hair is thicker and dark, I am pretty much hair free in these areas now and just have to do a top up every few weeks - this has made my life much easier as before I had to shave daily.

I was shaving my legs daily before I started to use Smooth Skin, after the 12 week course I have seen a reduction in hair by about 70% and the hairs that do grow back are much finer meaning that I can shave my legs about once a week. I had a break over the summer but am going to do another 12 week course to see if I see any further improvement.

Overall I have been really pleased with this unit. Its so easy to use and much less painful than waxing or epilating. Whilst I am not completely hair free I've gone from having to spend lots of time shaving and waxing to hardly having to worry about it at all. Its definitely made my life easier and if you have dark hair I would definitely recommend.

Service rating : It was efficient and turned up very quickly. no problems.
Product : I found it very effective, and during times where I have not used it, it seems to take longer if at all for the hair to grow back.

It Really Works


Sandie Andrews | Female | 59 | 5 * * * * *

I have been using it now for 3mths and its a pleasure not to have to wax or shave ever anymore, its easy to use and very effective, Thumbs up from me!

Best product for me.

I can honestly say that this is the best hair control product I have ever used. I have tanned Caucasian colouring and since adulthood I have been troubled by dark, fast-growing hairs on my legs. They grow along under the skin before emerging, which means that depilatory creams and shaving only remove hairs above the skin surface for a day, two at the very most. Waxing was no use, as you have to have some hair growth to use wax and it is painful. Smoothskin has definitely reduced growth to a great extent and I am delighted. While using it, I wear sunglasses to reduce the glare. It is not painful on the legs, although I am a bit sensitive on the bikini area, where I have always found depilatory creams satisfactory. If you have strong hair growth on the legs, do not hesitate to buy Skinsmooth, it is worth every penny.

Service rating : would definitely recomend this company
Product : pleasantly surprised by how well this works. I can go weeks now without needing to use it now. (At first I used it every week.) It's probably too soon to say, but I even wonder if some hair has vanished for good. A session does take longer than they seem to indicate (maybe an hour to do 2 full legs, since you are meant to look away with every flash), but then after a few months of use you can go weeks at a time without needing to use it. I would appreciate more reassurance that the flashes don't effect eyes (since occasionally you forget to turn away....). Generally delighted with this product. It's expensive, but it works....

Service rating : No problems
Product : + Great for thick black hairs.
- Less than 50% effective on normal body hair.
+ For odd hairs and small areas its convenient to use and discreet: no putting up with face hairs prior to electrolysis appointment: do it in your bedroom as soon as they grow !
- For large areas, eg. legs it takes a while (1 hour for both legs, every week for 2 months) and you're not sure of where you've treated already.

Service rating : Delivery was quick
Product : It is not a hair laser remover , smooth skin just makes the hair grow slower so for the first 12 weeks you think that your hair doesn't grow back, but actually they are growing slower. However my hair on my legs are much lighter and weaker, my legs no rough anymore when the hair grow back , they are soft. I'm happy with that because I can go on holiday for a week without shaving my legs, before I had to do everyday if I wanted to keep my legs nice and soft .

I can't imagine how I was coping without it before! Although have to be patient my friend, I usually use it while watching a movie with a glass of red :)

I'm happy with my smooth skin, I've been using it for 10 months. The downside is its going to take 10 years to get rid of all my hair.

Have almost had a year and not really any change only on dark thick patches it has slightly thinned but other than that nothing. Also the design of it is bad it is really small and takes hours to cover a patch of skin, needs a bigger head to it.

Service rating : My first device that I brought broke within 9 weeks and stopped working. I called Sooth Skin and told what the problem was. They said I would have a response back within a certain time but I did not. So I was quite upset at that time with the service. I then e-mailed them and I got a response back. I had to send some few pictures of my device to show it was faulty and they then sent me instructions on what I had to do to get the replacement. The replacement was quick and easy after that and from that point I was pleased with the service.
Product : I have been using the product weekly on my male chest. It has been over 12 weeks. My skin colour is light brown with Asian ethnicity. I have an athletic body.
I use to have a really hairy chest before I used the product but now my chest looks a lot better. That is after shaving my chest regularly and using the device every week. I don't know why but I did not like to have a hairy chest. Without the hair, your six pack and chest muscle looks a lot better. It has definitely improved my confidence.
The result is 6 out of 10. A lot of the hair has gone but even after 20 weeks of using the device weekly, some of the hair remains. But by using the device and using Argan oil to moisturize the skin, it leaves my body looking smooth. All I can say is you have to be patient with the results and I will continue using the device and go on another 12 week treatment period to see if there are any changes to the result. Only one negative point is when shaving the chest, it caused ingrown hairs and you have to shave your chest before each treatment.
