SHARNA’S EXPERIENCE WITH THE PHILIPS LUMEA: THE START OF A JOURNEY
Having a busy life can be tough. Working, socialising, exercising, maintaining a regular beauty routine – oh, and definitely ensuring you also get plenty of sleep in there too. How are we meant to fit everything in?! That’s why I’m so excited about the Philips Lumea finally taking care of my body hair for good. It’s one less thing to worry about on my never-ending to-do list.
My friend at work, Carley, recommended the Philips Lumea to me and I know it’s had a huge impact on her life, so I was keen to try it too. I’ve always been happy to invest time and money in my health and beauty, so the price wasn’t a concern – especially when you take into account how much I’ve already spent over the years on waxing appointments, epilators, razors and creams. That’s not to mention the hours I’ve wasted – not just on actually getting rid of body hair, but on worrying about it! The Philips Lumea is a long-term solution so I’ll never have to spend money on hair removal again. It’s such a relief.
I’ve been using the Philips Lumea for a few weeks now and I’m already noticing a huge difference. My hair is finer and hardly growing back at all in some areas. It’s so easy that I used it while I was listening to music in my room. Plus, it was over quite quickly – it probably only took about half an hour from start to finish.
I started on one of the higher settings – you can choose between 1 and 5 – on my legs, as the hair will be coarser to begin with. But I can take that setting lower as my hair gets softer and finer with regular use. The Philips Lumea comes with various attachments for the body and face, so I used a larger one for my legs and a smaller one for the trickier areas, such as the bikini line. I was bracing myself for it to hurt, but there was nothing. There’s a tiny bit of warmth and then it’s over.

Until I bought the Philips Lumea, I was mostly just shaving or waxing, but I was never satisfiedwith either as a long-term solution. Plus, it added an extra 20 minutes to a busy morning routine that already includes yoga and meditation. But it felt like the only options out there were either really painful with longer-lasting results, or were quicker but didn’t work very well. The Philips Lumea has all the good without the bad.
I have a colleague’s wedding coming up in a few months and the idea of buying a dress without giving my body hair a second thought is amazing. But obviously, the best bit is the extra 20 minutes in bed the Philips Lumea gives me!
