Got the Philips Lumea noted on your Black Friday wish list? Or maybe it features on your Christmas list? Don't wait – you can bag an early bargain, because this hair removal device is currently on sale at Boots with a huge £150 off.
What exactly is the Philips Lumea? Well, simply put it's a hair removal device you can use on arms, legs, face and underarms. And while we're fully aware that £325 is still an expensive price to pay for removing hair, if you think about it logically, it can save you money in the long run.
How? According to the Philips website, the average woman spends £12 per month on removing hair from their body at home, and £30.67 per month on salon hair removal treatments – this adds up to a huge £512.04 per year. Also, we should note that a full laser hair removal treatment costs over £3,000. The Philips Lumea is a high quality product so will last years if it's looked after, so £325 doesn't seem so bad now, huh?

The Philips Lumea hair removal device is among the best in the world at doing its job. It doesn't hurt, it's easy to operate, it's cordless and most of all, it's safe to use at home.
How does it work? The Philips Lumea works using IPL – otherwise known as intense pulsed light. When in use, the machine releases a wavelength into your skin, this targets pigment and kills growing cells to stop hair regrowth. Simple, right?
To use, you'll need to shave, wax or epilate the area beforehand, then select the setting best for your skin tone with help from the SmartSkin sensor. Next, press the device on the area you want to remove hair, hold it at a 90 degree angle and wait for the ready-to-flash light, then press the flash button. Move the device over the area, repeating this process while ensuring you don't repeat it in places you've already used it.
The first four treatments should be carried out every two weeks, then afterwards you should maintain every four weeks. After eight touch ups you should be able to enjoy six whole months of baby smooth skin. For help, you can download the Philips IPL app.
What makes this particular machine great? It's the world's first IPL hair remover device that comes with three different attachments for use on different places on your body: face; underarm and bikini; body.
Interested in purchasing? If you start the process now, you'll have hair-free legs/arms/chin and more in time for Christmas and New Year – #nobrainer.
