HOMEDICS DUO IPL & AFT TECHNOLOGY Salon hair reduction system

Homedics DUO is an IPL&AFT Dual technology hair reduction system that can be used at home.

I have been trying this device for the last two months and can really see the difference!

The way it works:

DUO gives you the power to fight unwanted hair growth in the comfort of your home. Perfect for those who have a busy life style or wanting to try out a hair reduction system without going to a specialist.

It has the combination of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT FREEGLIDE) in one therefor you can provide yourself with flexible treatments to be tailored perfectly to different parts of the body and to different skin tones.

I tried out the single shot IPL treatment on areas such as underarms, bikini line, arms and legs. You have to test out each area with a ‘spot’ test to determine your skins reaction and helps you select the optimal energy level for each treatment area. My body was fine with the Single shot IPL level 5 and treatments need to be separated by a minimum of two weeks on this level.

I found my hair to fall out and grow back less. It is not an immediate treatment as hair grows in different stages and multiple sessions are required to achieve the desired result, i think this also depends on the colour of your hair and how coarse it is.

When you are using Duo a flash of light will pop, which you must avoid to look at, i just looked away before pressing the button! There will also be a ‘pop’ noise with each pulse and a sensation of warmth. I personally did not experience any discomfort or pain and i have been using the highest Level of 5.

My personal experience with the HOMEDICS DUO has been amazing; i would say i have lost around 60% of my unwanted hair and will continue using this for optimal results.

Make sure you always read the instructions carefully before using such device as there are certain things one must educate themselves on prior to using the Duo.

Homedics Duo is available from their website: for £199.00

and also exclusive from Boots.

Colladeen Visage – Beautiful Skin From Within


I have been taking these supplements for the last 8 weeks and can definitely see an improvement in my skin. What initially really intrigued me about these is that research found that Colladeen Visage offers a natural SPF of 10 after 12 weeks of use and 15 after 24 weeks.

One should know that while Colladeen Visage will never replace the effectiveness of a high SPF sun lotion it would give you an all year round base SPF and the potential for reducing the long term effects of the sun.

The ingredients of Colladeen Visage is a potent mix of natural nutrients:

– Anthocyanidins and pro-anthocyanidins which are natural plant pigments found in dark skinned fruit

– Lutein is a fascinating nutrient found in green leafy vegetables

– Plant polyphenols are potent antioxidants

– Green tea which is a potent antioxidant

At the moment i can actually see a reduction in the spider veins in my facial skin! I am very happy about that as it is something a lot of us do not like to have visible. My skin also seems to feel firmer and tighter, so it is definitely working for me.

I would highly recommend these to anyone wanting to improve their skin!

They are also very reasonably priced so it doesn’t break the bank. £18.95 for 60 tablets!

I personally can not wait to try my new Smashbox products – soon to be launched will be the Smashbox ‘Its a Wrap” waterproof makeup remover which would be a fantastic addition to their makeup brand.

Smashbox products really do it for me as they are made to stay, are very long wearable and waterproof – exactly what you need as a makeup artist.

It is great to know that they soon will provide a super effective yet ultra-gentle remover!

The other item i am very excited about is their new ‘Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara’ which has a blend of micas, titanium and blue pigments that make the whites of your eyes pop!

The Halo Long Wear Blush comes in 6 different shades and with their signature grinder will shave off just the right amount of blush you need. No more cracked blushers in your makeup kit – one of it’s kind and retails for £23.00

Thank you very much @smashboxuk
