I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Remington. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.
Early this summer I wrote about the beginning of my journey to (hopefully) smoother legs and saying good riddance (for the most part) to razors that have been a constant part of my life since early adolescence. My ray of hope in the world of often annoying, sometimes painful removal of unwanted body hair below the neck? The innovative Remington i-LIGHT Pro, an Intense Pulsed Light hair removal system that promises professional hair removal results at home.
Having read many reviews of other IPL hair removal systems on blogs as well as retail websites in the last couple of years, most of which ranged from awful to somewhat scary, I was more than a little skeptical when I was given the opportunity to try out the Remington i-LIGHT Pro over the course of the summer. The only reason I was the least bit hopeful that this may just be the system that could actually deliver real results was the brand name. I own a few other products made by Remington, but they consist exclusively of hair styling products. Could the same brand that has armed me with the tools I need to groom and style my hair also help me remove the hair I didn’t want? Needless to say, while I was excited to see my results after using the Remington i-LIGHT Pro, I wasn’t really expecting to be relieved of my daily shaving habit, as much as I desperately wanted to be. Finally, after having used the system over the past six weeks, I can divulge my experiences and results with you, and anyone who dreams of getting rid of unwanted body hair (and not having to worry about shaving or waxing for up to six months!) but has long been skeptical of Intense Pulsed Light treatments.
For some background on what the Remington i-LIGHT Pro is and how it works, read my first post about the beginning of my journey with the Remington i-LIGHT Pro.
As I mentioned, I have been using the Remington i-LIGHT Pro for six weeks now–for three treatments done every two weeks. According to the instruction manual, this is all that should be needed in order to notice substantially less hair growth over the treatment area(s). After the initial six weeks, you should only have to use the system as needed. I have only used this hair removal system on my lower legs, and while I have noticed a drastic change in the amount of hair growing back and how long it takes to reappear, I haven’t had perfect results.
I still need to shave, but before I completed the test drive with the Remington i-LIGHT Pr, I had to shave my legs every. single. day. After six weeks of IPL treatments over my lower legs, however, I only have to shave every three to four days. I suspect that I haven’t had as effective of results because I have only used the i-LIGHT Pro on its lowest setting. As I mentioned in my first post, the system has five levels of intensity and I found the rubber band snapping sensation a little uncomfortable. Not unbearable by any means, or even painful, but uncomfortable. It gets better as you treat an area and get used to it, but that hasn’t stopped me from increasing the intensity. With that in mind, I think I could use just a couple more treatments before I see the kind of results that Remington claims I should be seeing.
Overall, I am very pleased with the results I have experienced with the Remington i-LIGHT Pro. It has definitely freed up a lot of time that I had previously spent with razor in-hand, and I can’t tell you how great it feels to be rid of my daily shaving routine after so many years of being a slave to the incessant short-term hair removal methods that have been available to me.
The Remington i-LIGHT Pro is the only Intense Pulsed Light hair removal system that I have personally seen that actually delivers real results.
