Boots Smooth Skin IPL Hair Reduction System Review- Month 1

IPL is something I've been intrigued about for years. The thought of never having to worry about shaving let alone waxing ever again is a tempting prospect. I  begun researching different methods available from Salon to in Home treatments and in all honesty it left my head in a bit of a spin.

So last Summer I finally took the plunge and booked some IPL treatment via a Wowcher offer. Looking back on it, that was not one of my best ideas! I paid over £100 in advance for 5 treatments which should have been enough to get the result I wanted to achieve. However after researching the Salon  Scam via Review Centre I quickly realised my mistake. I promptly emailed Wowcher Customer Care highlighting the comments made on line and they refunded me in full, credited my account with £10 and pulled the deal. (One small victory for Minnie and major Kudos to Wowcher!)
Because of this negative experience where I hadn't even ventured into receiving treatment I gave up on the idea....

That was untill has their Smooth Skin IPL Machine reduced to £249 with an offer that meant if you spent over £200 in one transaction you would save £50 on your order combine that with a triple points weekend and the £75.00 worth of existing points on my Advantage card it seemed rude not to! So I went for it.

And that is shamefully as far as I have got with my IPL journey! Literally bought the product, read the instructions, scared myself, and left it on the shelf. So I have decided to blog about it which should lead to me keeping up with the home treatments and persevering with the device as I have had very good thing about it.

I am taking the plunge tonight and will use it for the first time so for now let me just say a little bit about first impressions of the product.

Floral Nails- Accessorize Nail Wraps

When nail wraps first hit the market I thought 'This products sounds way too good to be true!' and to be honest I was right...unless using them with fake nails!
Having to use them with synthetic nails doesn't really bother me I prefer fake to my natural nails anyway and they just peel of of natural nails way too easily!

So just before Christmas I saw these Navy Floral Nail wraps in Accessorize and being OBSESSED with all things floral I didn't think twice and snapped them up.

I had previously used Nail Rock Wraps with good results so thought these would be a piece of cake to apply. I was wrong! Now I'm not sure if I was just rushing/ feeling tired/ or the product was total pants but they just did not work. They kept ripping, wouldn't stay stuck to my nail, seemed to be odd sizes for my nails etc. I tried to work with them for over an hour before giving up and getting annoyed that I'd wasted £4 and wasn't going to have pretty floral nails. :(

So when I saw this design in the New Year I should have left well alone, but of course I didn't!

But luckily for me my silly decision paid off because lookee I got pretty floral nails! Yay!

Plus they weren't too traumatic to apply, (unlike their predecessors!) but they certainly weren't as straightforward to work with as the previous Nail Rock Wraps I'd used. These were more like delicate vinyl stickers.

Overall I'm fairly pleased with how they look but I guess time will tell how they last.
