Katie Intner, Beauty Editor for Harpers Bazaar tested the SmoothSkin Pure Fit IPL Hair Removal Device.
She used the device once a week for eight weeks - at 75% into her course she said…
“I am still in awe of how this low-pain device zapped nearly all of my body hair. I didn’t believe the technology would work that quickly, but after three weeks, hair started to grow back slower in some areas. By the fifth week, I went about nine days without needing to shave.
After using the SmoothSkin device once a week for eight weeks, I had very minimal hair growth at all.
For the price and ease of use, I’m giving the device a perfect score of 5/5.”
How it works
The SmoothSkin Pure Fit works by using powerful flashes of light to actually kill some hair follicles. Over time, with regular use, more and more of those hair follicles die - leading to permanent hair loss in areas where you want to be bare.
The SmoothSkin Pure Fit takes it one step further to prevent skin damage. It has a UV filter to block harmful rays and 10 intensity settings. The skin sensor checks your placement before each flash to deliver a bespoke treatment. And with 3 modes to choose from, you can go gentle if you have sensitive skin.
Lastly, the precision head lets you target your hair removal right where you need it to zap unwanted lip, chin, toe and bikini fuzz. With up to 130 shots a minute, do your whole body in 10 minutes for quick hair removal at home.
How to use
Step 1: Shave the treatment area. Dry.
Step 2: Choose the mode, head and intensity.
Step 3: Place the SmoothSkin Pure Fit flat against the area and press the button, moving after each flash.
Step 4: When finished, clean the head and store.
Who Can Use SmoothSkin Pure Fit Hair Removal Device?
SmoothSkin Pure Fit IPL Hair Removal Device is effective on skin types I to V on the Fitzpatrick Scale and blonde to dark hair.
IPL technology is based on the relation between melanin in the skin and in the hair. It can be ineffective on white, grey or red hair. Since grey and white hair do not contain enough or any melanin, IPL treatment may not work on these hair colours. Red hair contains a different type of melanin, which is not responsive to IPL.
IPL is unsafe for deep-skinned users, as the skin is rich in melanin and could absorb more than the safe amount of energy.
How to use:
1. Prep the area by completing a patch test and wax or epilate to ensure the skin is hair-free.
2. After 24 hours, make sure the skin is clean and dry.
3. Use SmoothSkin Pure to steadily glide over the treatment area for even coverage.
4. For best results, we recommend using every week for 12 weeks, with maintenance top-ups every 4 to 8 weeks after that.
