I’ve started using my IPL, and have gotten good results so far. I’ve probably used it the most on my face, and although I still need a daily shave, the shadow at the end of the day is FAR less than before. I would guess that I could now get away with being in makeup for most of the day before having to find somewhere to remove it, shave, and start over, whereas before I could only really get away with being in makeup for maybe three or four hours at most.
As far as “down there” goes, I went from using Veet to using a razor most of the time. It’s just something you have to get accustomed to, and get your skin used to it also. I’ll have to try that Dove hair conditioner and see what difference it makes.
