Easy to use,I have been using Lumea for several months, following the instructions given. Previously I had had several IPL and Laser sessions but after some time still had considerable regrowth, so now I use Lumea to remove the remaining, to do maintenance and remove from other areas previously untreated. Works better on previously treated areas. Those have now very, very little and thin hair.
I did use it during summer but always protecting skin with FP50 during the day, and had absolutely no problem.
I use it mainly on #4 or 5, sometimes 3 if more tanned. (I have light skin and dark hair) #1 or 2 does not have any effect at all.
Very thin hair is difficult to remove, as with other IPL methods.
Would be great if Philips could provide a mole pencil with good coverage, good opaque white makeup pencils are not too easy to find, and all moles need to be carefully protected.
Lumea starts to heat up a little bit after some time, but that's when the battery runs out. You need to organize your sessions according to the battery, that's not very practical.
It is a bit difficult to adapt to certain areas of the body, but it is so for safety reasons, unless Lumea is in full contact with the skin it won't shoot.
I think it is great if you already had a few sessions before, using it in higher power levels is effective. Would be great if it could be used on the face.

Extremely HappyI've waited a long while before writing a review to make sure I wasn't being hasty in my comments.
I bought the product assuming the risk that it may or may not work but it was worth giving it a try - even for the cost.
Initially, I decided to only use it on the bottom half of my left leg so that I could compare it to the right to see if there was a real difference and make sure I wasn't convincing myself that it was a good purchase.
The difference was so noticeable after only 6 weeks that I gave up with my experiment and lasered everything from the neck down.
Since using it I have noticed some areas have almost no hair at all and others are considerably thinner.
It's the best beauty product I've ever bought and wish I'd bought it sooner! It's easy to use, convenient and is not really painful - I would say waxing hurts more.
I'm not saying it will be perfect for everyone but it certainly worked for me and have recommended it to many friends already.

Best money I ever spent!I researched this product before purchasing and decided to go for it. Without a doubt, this is the best money I have ever spent on a product.
I'll be honest, I was somewhat dubious, however, after the first go, my body hair regrowth was at least 50% less.
After my second go, I have:
virtually no underarm hair.
lower leg has around 30% hair.
thighs have 10% hair.
all over bikini (brazillian) 10% hair.
I have pale olive skin and dark hair and the instructions are very clear. The first go took a little getting used to but it's really easy. It is time consuming as you have to wait for the machine to heat up before you can zap, however I have found that I split treatments into body parts, depending on which areas you wish to treat i.e. Monday I'll treat full legs, Friday, underam and bikini.
After waxing for years and fed up of waiting for the regrowth...4-6 weeks, rubbish if, like myself you are dark, skirts are out for summer. I then epilated for 2 years which is great on short hairs, but gave me ingrown hairs, depsite exfoliating and looking like a plucked chicken for 36 hours, the pain was also torture.
I plan to travel next year (hot countries) and I'm fed up of constantly shaving so this was a great option as I don't have time to book in for laser treatments, like many with hectic schedules.
The Lumea is nowhere near as painful but the handset becomes hotter the longer you have been using it. So begin on more sensitive areas.
Bear with this as results are awesome, shaving (the bits you missed) is a dream, (no more rashes). It can take time with getting used to overlapping areas, as I admit I have missed some, hence the hair growth showing.
Keep to forthnightly treatments and you'll see results. It really is great to be virtually hair-free!

Seems pricey but worth itI was unsure whether to buy this product due to price but eventually i took the plunge and i'm glad i did.I've only used it once under arms and legs(not plucked up courage on bikini yet) and i've noticed a significant loss in hair regrowth on legs. Not noticed reduction under arms yet but will keep going.It does sting a little in some areas at first but once you get going with it you kind of get used to it.I have sensitive skin also but it hasn't been a problem at all,i've had no side effects at all but did use the lowest setting for my skin type.

Endnu usikker på effektenJeg har brugt IPL-hårfjerningsstystemet fra PHILIPS præcis efter anvisningen i cirka 6 uger nu, men kan endnu ikke vurdere, om apparatet har den ønskede effekt.
Det er en smule omstændigt at bruge apparatet, fordi det lille "hoved" gør, at man skal arbejde længe på benene (som er mit primære område for hårfjerning). Desuden skal apparatet oplades, når man er færdig med det ene ben, da det ikke kan "stå distancen" til begge ben på een gang.

Brilliant purchaseAt first when buying this product i was very cautious as it was a lot of money to spend on 1 product. Finally i gave in and bought it!
I have had the Lumea for just over a month now. It is very easy to use, having used it only twice, i am seeing results already!
The laser is slightly uncomfortable in some areas but overall its a fast pain free procedure and a hairless finish is brilliant!
I would definitely recommend others to purchase it!

PerfectIt is pricey, but really worth it.
It's easy to use as it literally gives you the green light to zap. The instructions show very clearly how to use it and at what setting. It's wireless which means you don't have to fight with a cord while using it.
You may feel a slight pinch here and there, but that really depends on the area (how thin the skin is).
Really pleased with it!

Wow what resultsafter being a little sceptical about the Products ability to get rid of hair. Let's just say I am amazed, wow I am almost hairless in just three uses. It's fantastic I have had no underarm hair for around four months other areas needed one more use and they were just as good. It's a great product and so easy to use. I bought the machine as it had a money back promise, so I felt I had nothing to lose if it didn't work. But it really does I can't stress the ability of this product to leave you hair free, it feels so liberating especially on holiday.no more haveing to shave half way through the holiday on top of a tan ouch, it really brings back painful memories. But no more, I used the machine before my holiday and stayed hair free all the time.
