My Journey So Far
Like I said, I’ve been through two of the predecessor Remington machines before I bought this one. This has been my last purchase and my favorite of all. It’s the latest, newest and greatest, most effective machine released by Remington (also the most cost efficient as the cartridges last longer which means you don’t need to buy as many). I don’t think I will be ‘upgrading’ any time soon. After using this machine, there pretty is no hair left now..
Before I got into permanent hair removal, I never gave much thought to the hair on my legs until someone told me that “shaving makes your legs look thinner and longer.” From then on, my shower time was been extended from 10 minutes to nearly 20 minutes. I hated to admit it, but shaving my legs every other day or so become so dreadful that I started looking for other alternatives for shaving.
I have always been a practical girl. As much as possible, I find the easiest (and the cheapest) way to achieve certain things that I have been eyeing off. Be it the do-it-yourself distressed jeans, skin lightening home remedies, or home made tortillas, you name it! That being said, I can affirm that when it comes to “hefty” investments, I take the time to think it through in order to avoid regrets in the end.
Hence, my Remington iLIGHT Pro PLUS Quartz purchase. After much (trust me, MUCH) thought and deliberation (with the help of the internet and my girlfriends), I decided to take a step forward and order another Remington machine online. I waited for the arrival of the machine with my hairy legs dying from anticipation. Come 3 days, and ta-da! Here comes the promising machine claiming permanent hair reduction results after just 3 treatments, unlike the previous machines, even after 6 treatments.
Why Remington iLIGHT Pro PLUS Quartz?
Aside from laser hair removal, waxing and tweezing are the alternatives for shaving. But why settle for temporary remedies when you can get rid of your body hair permanently?
And that is when Remington iLIGHT Pro PLUS Quartz came to my rescue. A small price to pay for unlimited sessions in the comfort of my home. What more could I ask for? Boasting the following features, this machine is definitely is a keeper now for a long time.
Long life quartz bulb with 30,000 Flashes
Having read this for the first time, I did not even think this feature entails something special. But after researching, the long life quartz bulb emitting 30,000 flashes basically means that with the fast flash rate, treatment time is faster. Each area may take about a minute or so, hence, you never have to take a break in between treatments. Talk about efficiency.
FDA approved and clinically proven
This machine is safe to use, and is clinically proven to deliver what it promises aswell as being FDA Approved. The reduction of hair growth is due to the Intense Pulsated Light (IPL) technology, working on the same principles as lasers, just a tiny bit difference in how the light is emitted, you can read about the differences between laser and ipl hair removal here.
Easy to use and gentle on skin
The package provides a detailed information on how to use the machine. This proves to be really helpful, for the instruction manual is easy to understand and adhere to. After the treatments, my skin felt smoother, and I can tell that the small bumps caused by shaving were be long gone.
Works on MOST body parts!
I initially bought this Remington Quartz device for my legs, but lo and behold, it works on most body parts. I was able to target my underarm hair, bikini area, and toes. This made me very satisfied with my purchase, for it was all worth it. If you are looking for a safe machine for the face, try this machine as it is FDA approved to be safe to remove facial hair.
What to expect?
The package (in a cardboard box) contains the machine itself, a manual, DVD with video instructions, cleaning cloth and one replacement bulb. The machine is easy to put together, just like lego. Once you have put it all together, you just have to plug in the cord. The machine is corded as it says so in the website, and imagine my joy finding it long enough that I need not to sit near the outlet. Easy peasy.
The flashes emitted from the machine burns and kills the hair follicles. This might feel a little prickly, but this ensures the removal of the unwanted hair in the area. With this revolutionary power, the illustration of the innovative technology is demonstrated by this hair remover.
How to Use It?
Step 1: Wash and Shave
Prior to the treatment, be sure to thoroughly clean the area and shave.
Using the iLight over dark hair stubble would result to a pinch, and you would prefer not to feel it.
Shaving as close as possible to the skin greatly reduces the smell of burning hair. After shaving, also make sure that the area is dry upon treatment.
Step 2: Skin Compatibility With the iLIGHT Pro Plus Quartz
You could do this by putting up the skin tone sensor against your skin. The Remington iLight Pro Plus Quartz works best on medium to darker hair colors and will not work on light colored hair like white and grey. It is less effective on lighter hair colors like light blonde or red. This means that both men and women can use this machine, as long as you are compatible with it. You should also take note that this machine is not to be used over tattoos or dark spots on your skin.
My brother, a tanned man, also used this machine, he is not too dark but not too light either.
Step 3: Treatment
I quickly turned it to “5”, the highest there is, for the best chance at results. Then, I placed the iLIGHT Pro Plus Quartz against my skin and wait for the chirping sound before pressing the flash button. Upon pressing the button, a flash of very bright light will be emitted, but eye protection will not be needed. It might sting for a bit, but that only means that the product is working.
REMEMBER, you should form a tight grid pattern, or else you might mess it up. Keep working on the area until you have flashed all that there is.
Step 4: Be Free!
The treatment should be done every 2 weeks, and you can definitely say hi to a less hairy you!
Am I Happy?
Remington iLIGHT Pro Plus Quartz IPL6000Q made me toss my razor and waxing kit FINALLY in the garbage can. Undoubtedly light and easy to use, its ultra-fast flash rate treats my “hairy” areas so fast that my shower time is cut in half.
Also, with its compact feature, I am able to burn through the hair across not only my legs, but my whole body! Bikini area, armpit, legs, toes, upper lip, you name it! I am definitely the less hairy version of me, and I could not be any more satisfied.
You definitely get more than what you pay for, and I am certainly keeping this machine inside my cabinet for the years to come.
