Hair Removal

Testing Time – Boots Smooth Skin Intense Pulsed Light hair reduction system

It’s time for some testing…again.

This time it’s the Boots Smooth Skin Intense Pulsed Light hair reduction system. I’m quite excited about this one. The idea of achieving long term hair reduction at home sounds good to me!

I have taken a few photos of the product itself so you can have a closer look at what’s involved.



The system itself is expensive at £331.90 but I have seen the system reduced at times with special offers. If it works I would consider it money well spent. It’s also cheaper than the Philips version by about €100.

I read the information leaflet that accompanied the system this morning over a cup of tea and there are a few things that stood out to me…

  • Smooth Skin cannot be used on blond, grey or red hair
  • You have to cover moles with a white pencil to protect them. The system does not include a pencil. They also recommend using a pencil to mark where you have treated. This sounds a bit annoying but we’ll see.
  • You have to shave your legs before treatment and the pain is minimal if you use the conducting gel
  • You can’t expose the treated area to the sun for 24 hours

I will give full information on how the product works etc in the video review. In the meantime, click here to read all of the information you need about the product and reviews.

I will start testing on Monday and keep you updated on my progress every few weeks. When I have finished a course of treatment (12 weeks) I plan to record a video review.

Come on smoothness!!

Would you consider laser hair removal?

    Hi! Do you have any news on the results of this product? I am interested in it and want to know what your feedback is. Thanks!

  • Jeanne

    Hey there! How has this product been for you? Any update?

  • GG

    Hey, I really wanted one of these! however I can’t figure out from the reviews whether it gets rid of hair permanently? I really hope it works for you ^^

  • Rona

    I would love to have laser done, I hope sometime soon they invent one that works on lighter hair!

  • Nikki

    Look forward to reading the update on this, I was tempted to purchase the Philips Lumea !! Both big investments so hopefully they’ll work !!

    Good luck with this, I look forward to seeing how you get on. I have to say I wouldn’t be optimistic as the professional strenght ones only remove about 80% of hair and this can’t be near that strength. Still, wait and see……

    oh no!! I would’ve given you mine if I knew you were testing one out! I tried it for a while a few years ago, thought it was useless and went to therapie instead.

    it cost me around 300 euro and did absolutely nothing. for that 300 euro i couldve had my underarms done with a professional machine. I was raging I’d spent my money on it

    Oooohh, am interested to see how this goes….It always a pain shaving, waxing but I’m always a bit apprehensive about this kind of thing, especially cos of the price. However, if it works I may start saving up…it will cost less in the long run I guess! Good luck with it!
