Pros and cons

According to our laser hair removal device expert

  • Thanks to the multiple attachments, it's suitable for both body and face.
  • With both a glide and precision mode, you can remove hair in one movement or with extra accuracy.
  • At 4 cm2, the light window is relatively large, so you can treat a considerable part of your body or face at once.
  • Due to the the need for AC power, you're constantly bound to a socket.
  • Hair removal with IPL is not suitable for everyone, so make sure to check the specifications or info page if IPL is an option for you.

8,8/10

I recommend this device

  • does what it promises
  • you don't have to wait for the device to charge
  • compact
  • slightly less good in the hand than the advanced models

This is my second Lumea. Before this I had a Lumea Advanced and so I can compare both. From the first one I already know that Lumea really does what it promises. If you have dark hair and not too dark skin ("olive" is definitely still OK!), if you are tired of ingrown hairs and many shaves, then go for it. It was one of the best investments I've ever made.
A Lumea essential belongs to the cheaper Lumea's, but of course does its job just as well. I use this device to maintain the treatment (not that that is necessary anymore).

Once you've read the user manual, you'll be done with it in no time. This device can only be used with a cord, but on the other hand you can always use it: you don't have to wait for it to be charged (this was the case with my previous Lumea device and it sometimes interferes if you use the treatment more than one hour). It does not have a removable attachment, but with a damp cotton swab (soaked in some alcohol if necessary) you can clean it without any problems.
In general, the device feels good in the hand, but in some places a little less well, also compared to the Lumea Advanced. (The price difference has to be somewhere, of course.) It then becomes more difficult to push the flash button. In any case, I would recommend that you get help if needed. Especially for e.g. the back of the thighs it is useful if someone else can flash!

To know which areas you have already done, you can draw lines, if necessary along paper strips (be careful not to flash on them, because it burns). Take into account a part of the head that does not flash, so make sure the flash parts connect.
You can also flash by feel, after all, the area that you did not fully flash one time, you will have the next time.

Knees remain difficult, perhaps because the flash section is quite large (and a knee quite bony). But just twist and click until it completely connects to the skin and then it finally works.

10/10

Very pleased!

I have used the device on my legs, bikini and armpits and it took less than 15 minutes. Very easy to use!

Choose another

  • If it does, I do good
  • Easy to use
  • Second device, first did not work well returned

The cooling of the device is not sufficient, because of this it regularly falls off, so that you are busy for a very long time. Result and ease of use is excellent. But I will choose another.
