As much as I have been loving hiding under joggers, jeans, and chunky jumpers over the winter season, there's been a lot of hype around spring lately and in all honesty, I am all for it. I feel like I've been cold since last September, it's about time we had more warmth in our lives and we can start showing off a bit more skin in the next coming months. Speaking of showing off skin, the subject of hair removal comes to light and we all know everyone has a different story when it comes to the subject of defuzzing. With the amount of different methods out there, we could sit here for ages discussing it, but what I wanted to share with you today is, my story and what I currently use for hair removal.
As a individual of oriental origin, my hair is dark, yet fine in texture - I am one of the lucky ones that don't have coarse hair texture which can make removal difficult at times. As soon as I was of age where, shall I say, "sprouting" began, I was conscious of what people could see and what they may think, so I started using shavers as that's what most people used back in those days. I soon became aware of more methods as the years went on, such as sugaring, waxing and eventually threading (which I currently still use for my eyebrows and upper lip), then all of a sudden, a wave of new technology appeared and I was presented with a dose of electrical items such as epilators and lasers etc. There was so much choice, and it was hard to pinpoint which one will suit me best, so I pretty much tried them all and came to the conclusion that as much as I don't mind visiting a salon every couple of weeks and getting my wax on, I did want something more sustainable, something that I could use in my own home and be comfortable with. I went through a few different types of electrical devices which all worked great, until I was recently presented with the Sensilight Mini from Sensica and after eight solid weeks of testing, I am actually hooked!
There are three devices in the Sensica Hair Removal range, the Sensilight, the Pro and the Mini and they all work using the same RPL (Reactive Pulse Light) technology which is a form of IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which reacts to different skin tones and conditions to ensure a tailored treatment. I have been using the Sensilight Mini for the past eight weeks and having used a few different devices before, I can easily say that this one has been one of the best I've tried. I always get this overwhelming feeling of fear before I start using electrical items on my body because of the worry that it would be painful, but this handy little thing is painless and actually feels quite soothing thanks to the small pulses of heat as it glides along my skin. The device itself is small and easy to use, it literally fits in to the palm of your hand and can be manoeuvred around the body, including those hard to reach areas making it perfect for travelling also. I noticed after a few sessions that my hair regrowth has minimised (I tested on my legs and underarms) and it was becoming less and less frequent where I had to use it, thanks to how quickly the results had shown.
If hair growth is the bane of your life and you're looking to invest in something that will last, save you money in the long run and gives actual results, then the Sensilight Mini is for you - soft, silky, hair free skin is on the way.
What is your experience with hair removal? When did you start thinking about it? And what are your tried and tested methods? I would love to know!
