It is extremely easy to use, but I have seen no results at all in 4 sessions. I have used this thing just about everywhere and still have gotten no results. I have a lighter skin tone with dark brown and black hair. I have been treating my legs (black) my bikini area (black) my stomach (dark brown & black) under arms (black) arms (brown and black). I was also extremely disappointed once I got it and learned you can not use it on your neck or above your neck. Its not very painful at all until you get to sensitive areas like the inner thigh and some parts of the under arm. I will continue to use for another month with weekly treatments and hopefully I will see some results..
I left a review for this product after using it twice, but now, 7 treatments later, I'm back again. I didn't notice a difference at ALL until the 6th treatment!! I have now done 9 treatments (all on level 5, each spaced approx. 2 weeks apart) and I can FINALLY see some results, although it is different for different areas. Armpits: still no difference at ALL
Legs: pretty noticeable difference, hair still grows but it is lighter and WAY more spread out
Bikini area & lower belly: most noticeable difference; hair barely grows at all anymore I have very light skin and dark brown hair, so I don't know why it took so long to work. I have also had to replace the laser cartridge twice ($25/each).
It works good. Ease of use would have been rated excellent if the wand was cordless. Fortunately the cord is long. I had good results with the first use, and set to the lowest power. The second use (two weeks later) I waited until the next day of shaving to use the laser and could smell the hair burn and feel the rubberband popping sensation they mention in the instuctions, all while it was still set on the lowest setting. I've only used it on the legs and underarms so far.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a decrease in the amount of hair that grew back after using this for only one month! I've never used light hair removal before (only waxed my legs), so I used the lowest setting at first, but the highest setting actually isn't much different. It just feels like a light snap. The flash of light is a little bright, so try not to look directly at it. The device is extremely easy to use and I'm very happy with the results for the price! I highly recommend this product!
Ease of use -- It's pretty easy to use and the large IPL screen makes covering even fairly large areas quick. It took me about 10 minutes to do my lower legs. The only problem is it's hard to tell where you've already treated, since you don't want to miss spots but you also don't want to re-treat the same areas. Pain -- I started out using level 2 and 3 on my armpits, bikini area, and lower belly. I could easily use level 5 on my legs. For my second treatment, I was able to use level 5 on all areas. It feels like a light sting, not bad at ALL. And I have a fairly low pain tolerance. Results -- I've only done the first two treatments. After the first treatment, I saw no difference at all. After the second treatment, I haven't noticed much difference either, but you really aren't supposed to see results until after the third treatment. Other -- It's nice not having to charge the device. It is attached to a cord so you don't have to stop and wait for it to re-charge after 15 minutes like you do with the Tria. For the price, this is a great product (assuming it works after the third treatment... I'll be back to complain if it doesn't).
I purchased this product mainly for facial hair and when it came the warnings were so strong against use of any place on face that im very dissappointed. I plan to return it for that reason.
I was very skeptical. I read as many reviews as I could before I bought this product. Yes there will be negative as well as positive reviews. I felt why not give it a try. I only have to loose is hair!!!! Well for my purpose was facial hair. I tried it. It felt kinda like stingy pain. But I wanted to get rid of embrassing hair. I know its not recommended for face but if your careful it can work. I wore sunglasses. Ive done my 2nd session and I look at my face I can see how smoother its becoming. I love it and this is a heaven sent to me. For the people out there who understand how embarrassing it can be day to day trying your best hide it. This may not be for everyone but it is working for me.
Received as Christmas gift and after month of using the product, I am HAPPY to report: HAIR IS GONE AND SKIN IS SMOOTH AND SOFT. Please note: it does take several treatments to abate hair but well worth the work!
I just bought the Remington i-Light 6000.
I have very fair skin and my hair is light brown.
I put my arm in the testing spot and it buzzes and the light turns yellow. My mom who has darker skin than I does the exact same thing and it beeps and the light turns green.
I know that if you have dark skin you can't use this product, but I have the lightest skin ever. (In fact all of the makeup I try on is too dark even in the lightest shade; so I have to buy white makeup to mix with the lightest shade.)
SO BOTTOM LINE IS BEWARE BECAUSE IF YOUR SKIN IS LIGHTER THAN NORMAL IT WON'T WORK!
Had this product for a couple of weeks now, I can already see a difference. Not for those with a low pain threshold.
This is so easy to use and has been very effective for me. The hair on my legs wasn't too bad anyway and now it is non-existent. I have used it everywhere and am very pleased with the results. My daughter gave this to me and saved me a $$$ because I was about to pay for laser hair removal. I am so glad I tried this first. Takes minutes. It is a little hard to tell where you've been but can spot treat those areas you miss.
Easy to use with great results after second treatment
I have only been using the I-light for two weeks now, so I have not yet seen the results. It's easy to use, but the cartridges are very disappointing. The unit that came with my initial purchase contained all of 5 pulses before burning out. And, the replacement cartridge lasted through only 1 1/2 passes on my legs. That's pretty minimal for the price. I'm still hopeful and willing to purchase more cartridges to see if this works.
Even tough it seemed a my skin would do okay with it, and light was gree every time I tried to use, it was hard to trust that it was not doing damage to my skin. I returned the product because I felt that it was burning some areas too hard. Two weeks later I'm itching and have a rash on my tights. Also, it works very bad in areas that you may have a freckle due to the dark color, it will burn, but is easy to forget...
I have had this product for a little over a month. When I purchased the product I also PAID FOR 4 Cartridge Refills at $25.00 each. Well the machine is now broke, I tried putting ALL 4 Cartridges in to make it work and it does not work.........There is something defective in the hair removal unit itself.......I ordered online, so I'm not sure what to do from here........The machine worked GREAT until it quit working.......
Im very happy with it. This was the one that I was wating for.
I wish I new before how good this machine was.
This machine really works well. This is my second one, previous was three years ago that stopped working (won't register surface to flash). Other than having to replace the unit, this machine really does what it advertises. Sure is cheaper than electrolysis.
Painful and only 2 full-body treatments with included bulb. Still waiting to see if it actually works as advertised. Had to buy a replacement cartridge to complete 2nd treatment.
I ordered this online and had it shipped site to store. I was only able to get about 20 flashes then it stopped working. I had to unplug it let it sit for 10-15 minutes then turn it back on. It would only give me about 10 - 20 more flashes after shutting it down and turning back on. I was not able to complete 1 full treatment. I got frustrated with this product and returned it to the store for a full refund.
I have blond hair so it did not work for me It burned the skin and hurts to bad. I wish if I could use it.
