Iluminage Touch Permanent Hair Removal System

Hair removal is not something I usually delve in to on the internet, but I recently tried out something quite the extraordinary which warrants a share on this blog and that is the Iluminage Touch. This at-home hair removal system is clinically proven to work with all skin colours and the widest range of hair colours. It is powered by elos technology, which has been created by scientists at Syneron, the inventors of Intense Pulse Light (IPL). Combining IPL and Radio Frequency energies, the current is able to penetrate deeper in to the skin to permanently put the follicles to sleep, no matter what your skin colour is. It suitable for both men and women, is safe and effective with no stinging or snapping. It can be used on the face and the body including arms, legs, underarms and bikini area and takes as little as 30 minutes to do the whole body.

To use this system with ease, I recommend, firstly to read all the instructions provided in the booklet. The applicator is easy to hold, glides on to the skin and it is pretty much painless when the flashing elos technology goes to work. The device does emit slight heat, but it's not uncomfortable at all, it's actually quite soothing. The area being treated must be hair-free before starting, this is to ensure the elos energy is able to target the hair follicles beneath the skin's surface. The aim is to use this device on the targeted areas once a week for to seven treatments over a period of six weeks to see the results. I am on my fourth week now and I have been using it on underarm. I have seen great results so far, there is less regrowth and when there is, it's very fine hair, not the dark strands I was getting previously (sorry, a bit TMI). On some parts of my underarm, there is actually no more hair growing through, it's amazing! I am so looking forward to reaching my seventh week and seeing no hair (the dream). Overall, I would highly recommend investing in the Iluminage Touch if you're looking for an at-home, permanent hair reduction system that works. All that money you can save on your waxing treatments can be fixed with this device for sure.

If you want an update on my underarms (don't know who would really, haa), feel free to tweet me over @rainingcakeblog or if you have any questions or you're unsure about the system, do let me know and I'll be happy to help.

I must admit, shooting these pictures was so much fun. I have always been a fan of swings and every time, I go to a park, the swings are always the first thing I go for, kid at heart really, but then again, who isn't? Most of us will always have that child-like flare within us. Swinging away in the playground actually made me think about a lot of what's going on in my life right now. There's so many things I want to do, places I want to visit,  stuff that I want to learn and I really want to get stuck in on some of those things.

Life is all about having fun and sometimes forgetting your age. Age is just a number, it shouldn't stop you from doing what you want to do and living your life the way you want to. Yes, there may be obstacles along the way, life isn't all plain sailing, but by keeping a strong mind and having a clear vision, you can face your fears and achieve your goals. No dream is too big, if you set your heart on it, make it happen and go out and get it! As we all say, you only live once, it's now or never.

Morning 'Get Ready With Me'

Summer is the time of the year when getting ready needs to be sharp and quick so you're ready to go out and enjoy the sunshine (not in the UK obvs *checks rain outside of window and sighs*). But if you're on holiday or it's just one of those rare days in England where the sun does shine, then you want to be out and about as soon as possible. My morning 'Get Ready With Me' is pretty quick and simple and in today's post, I am sharing my week day routine, hope you enjoy it!

6:45-7am - Wake up, check my social media, shower and skincare routine. I am currently using products from Radical on my face and so far, it's been great. The Hydrating Cleanser is a must-try.

7:20am - Moisturise with Vaseline Spray Moisturiser because it's super quick and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth all day. My current favourite is the Aloe Vera one, it's such a refreshing scent. I then get dressed, I always pick my outfit the night before to avoid any last minute dramas.

7:25am - Have my breakfast. I usually have a bowl of cereal or yoghurt and granola with a cup of tea.

7:40am - Start doing my hair and make up. I usually go for a lighter base, golden toned eyes, flush cheeks and sheer pink lips. For my hair, I usually spritz some dry shampoo in to it and ruffle through with brush. 

8am - Get my bag ready, spray some perfume and take some Instagram pictures for the morning. If I have a quick five minutes, I sometimes fill in my chipped nails with some polish, but that is if I ever do get those five minutes.

8:15am - Leave the house for work.

So that's my usual morning routine, what does your week day morning look like?
