Well I finally did it; I spent a ridiculous amount of money on a home IPL hair removal product. For years now I have been looking at various hair removal products, pondering if I should pursue some sort of more permanent options.
Just as a review of my hair removal journey - I began shaving off my body hair when I was about 12 years old. Initially it began as something I was asked to do to help improve my times while I was a swimmer. It was actually one of the first things that showed me that I am a bit different than some other males. Because I was THRILLED to be able to shave my body, while the other guys hated the idea of doing it. And then when it was growing back in, I was super unhappy about it and I began to generate excuses to be able to shave again.
Thus I have been shaving off and on for the past 32 years! Wow! About ten years ago
I bought what I consider to be a torture device, an epilator. I was, and still am, shocked that anybody could use that ridiculously painful device to remove hair. I mean wow, that thing is super painful. Several years later, I invested in a home waxing kit. This gave me decent results, but still not the svelte hair free body I have been searching for. And it does take a bit of skill to perform properly, and it still hurts like a f***!
Okay, so at this point in my journey, I finally decided to lay down some big bucks and I got the LumaRx Hair Removal Device, Full Body. I was going to buy it from Amazon, but they could not verify for me if they would honor LumaRx's 90 day return policy. They would only verify for me a 30 day return policy. Well that is just not long enough to determine if it will actually work or not, so I ended up purchasing the product directly from the manufacturer's website. As it turned out, that was the way to do it, as I got it for about $75 less than I would have paid at Amazon. What a deal!
(While looking at the site today, I do not see it listed at that lower price point, so I don't know how I got so lucky to receive that steal of a deal. Maybe if you watch the site for awhile, they will offer it again at that lower price??????????)
I am nervously awaiting the arrival of my own personal IPL device and am hoping that it will not be as torturous as that dang epilator! I will keep you all updated on the results!
Yay, hopefully a hair free me is on it's way!
