silk'n flash & go

Once the wedding is over it’s time to jet set somewhere warm and sunny with your new partner. If you don’t want to be fussing with razor burn or bikini bumps on your honeymoon check out the Silk’n Flash and Go.

The Flash and Go is really easy, I just  shower and shave my legs and dry off. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level.  Watch the unit and wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.

To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round oftreatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.

The Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair.  And I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.

Review: Silk’n Swirl Facial Brush

CYMERA_20130829_105442

The lovely reps for Silk’n were kind enough to send me their Silk’n Swirl Face Cleansing Brush and Cleanser for review. I love facial cleanser brushes but a lot of the popular brands are over $100 which can be hard to justify when you are shopping on a budget. I was excited to try a facial cleanser brush that was more affordable and from a reputable company.

I really like the size of the brush, the handle is smaller than some of the others and was just perfect. The brush itself is really soft and was gentle on my skin but was great at deep cleaning and getting all the dirt and makeup off. Its also water resistant which is great, I love using mine at night in the shower to deep clean my face before I put on my night creams. The only issue I have with the brush is the batteries, it would be nice if it was rechargeable but at this price point I can understand standard batteries. The way I found around it is a good pair of rechargeable batteries so I am not having to spend money on new batteries every time I wear out a pair.

 

Silk’n Swirl Face Cleaning Power Brush $29
The Silk’n Swirl, a dual-speed facial brush, features soft, non-abrasive, micro bristles to refresh and exfoliate your skin, and remove dirt, oil, and makeup. The ergonomic handle and intuitive setting panel allows you to easily redirect the brush rotation, so you can get a relaxing, deep clean resembling a spa treatment in your home. Its deep penetration will make the Swirl a staple in your beauty regimen, and its gentle touch will mean that you can pair it with your favorite facial cleanser and use daily.

  • Comes with one head installed and one extra head.
  • Dual speed cleansing for beautiful skin
  • Soft bristles gently exfoliate your skin to remove dirt, oil and makeup
  • Designed for daily use with your favourite facial cleanser
  • Water resistant for use in the shower

I don’t own a Silk’n FaceFX so I can’t speak to how this works as a pre-treatment but I did use it as a face wash with my Silk’n Swirl facial cleansing brush. The cleanser is really light and I love how refreshing it feels on my skin. It left my skin feeling really clean without drying it out, it also worked great with the Silk’n Swirl face brush.

Silk’n Flash & Go Makes At Home Permanent Hair Removal Safe and Easy!

I was given an opportunity to try the Silk’n Flash and Go and I was excited to check out the results. I wax, and shave to keep my skin smooth and hair free. But waxing can get expensive so I was interested to see what kind of results I could get at home.

The Flash and Go is really easy to use even for people like me who hate to be bothered with directions. To start my first treatment I just had a shower shaved my legs and dried them. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level since it was my first testing session. I just wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.

To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round of treatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.

Flash & Go is a really great tool it works on all areas of the body including the face. A lot of the at home machines I researched you could only do certain areas but the Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair.  Now the sticker price might seem high at $299 but when I work out the numbers its a bargain. I spend that much on waxing in just a few months. With the Flash & Go I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.

The package includes the Flash & Go handheld device, an extra lamp cartridge, instructional DVD and informational starter’s guide that explains everything you need to know about the device.

  • Not available in Australia or New Zealand.

How it works:
The HPL (or Home Pulsed Light) technology kills the hair follicle and depletes hair growth resulting in permanent hair removal. Now because the light needs to detect the hair, it does not work on dark skin tones. It is best for those who have dark hair but fair skin (like myself).

Does Silk’n Flash&Go work?
Yes. In clinical trials held by physicians, Silk’n Flash&Go was proven to safely achieve excellent hair removal results. Silk’n Flash&Go has been cleared by the FDA for the removal of unwanted hair.  In addition, Flash&Go is not required by the FDA to be used with other products.
