SmoothSkin Gold IPL – If you are on the lookout for a gift that Mum would genuinely use and probably wouldn’t ever think of treating herself to then look no further than the SmoothSkin Gold. This is the most powerful at-home IPL device on the market and has the unique detect and set feature to scan your skin tone automatically with each flash. This results in a bespoke treatment with every treatment, only releasing the amount of energy needed for that particular area.
This amazing device offers dual treatment modes – Glide and Stamp. Glide is perfect for bigger areas such as the legs and Stamp works well for smaller areas such as the bikini line and underarms.
SmoothSkin Gold has an in-built Gentle Mode which will reduce the energy released by the device to help those who have sensitive skin or find the treatment uncomfortable initially.
This can be easily deactivated with one press of a button where the device will return to its standard power settings. We love that SmoothSkin Gold can be used on both the face and body, making it super versatile and handy to have on standby.
SmoothSkin Gold is usually £299 but at the moment you can get it for £249! Available from: www.smoothskin.com.
