Recommended Posts

 Hey all

Just wondering if anyone had used the braun silk expert IPL

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Braun-Silk-expert-Permanent-Visible-Removal-x/dp/B018CVHA5Q

Its got great reviews.nearly bought it on black friday for £218.

I've used veet before but that left me itchy and after having forest legs for 15 years ish i hate letting me legs go longer than a week without shaving. So atm i'm spending 45-60mins a week shaving my legs.not that i mind.its great to put some tv on and spend an hour being girly :)

No I've never used one.  Seems expensive though.  I shave in the shower, I use hair conditioner and sit on the floor so there's no balance issues and I don't miss any spots.  I never have issues with itchy or blotchy skin.

Hello Natalie,

I have not used an ILP, but have the Tria. I've had some success with it. I've been on hrt with finisteride for just over 2 years. While my body hair now grows slowly (shave legs 2 to 3 times a week instead of daily) I have managed to use the tria to pretty much eliminate the hair on certain areas of my chest. I just don't use it enough. I also use it to help control facial hair. I still have issues with T, and constantly fight it. It slows it considerably..

I realize it wasn't what you asked, and it's more expensiive. Just thought I'd bring it up :)

Good luck.

Kaylee

Thanks both :) 

I've not heard of tria so will look it up. I may treat myself at some point :)

Never heard of that either. Honestly, I don't really trust in those things actually working. So I just stick with shaving and spend about 45 minutes daily or every other day. I also only shave in the shower. I know, it's so much time but it's worth it for me (hairs trigger my GD and makes me feel so depressed).

I own some Nair too but the results aren't ever good enough.

Sorry but as lovely as this seems i doubt that the expense is at all justified.  Better to put the money into a professional session.

 

Hugs,

I have looked at these things, but the fact that they only appear to work well with certain hair colours etc puts me off. Very expensive gamble. As my hair is fairly fair I only need save my legs weekly and have been doing it so long that it takes minutes. It does take me toward an hour to do whole body though :( . I use an electric shaver (in fact several plus an epilator - each selected for their use on different areas), so far less risk of injury.

      Yep, I agree, as noted by my Location description included with each message I send here 🙂   I'm much more relaxed here than I am in certain other parts of the USA.   Astrid

      Yes it is , and depends on the state .  In general its life insurance is a big savings , but short term disability may go up . In MA as far as I know no difference on auto insurance .

      Massachusetts is great! Love the state! One of these days, I'll move back.

      Hey y'all! Haven't been too active here the past few weeks, I've been in a mostly uneventful but busy routine the past few weeks. So I haven't had much to say or time to say it. But I think I mustered up enough noteworthy things to mention. So here goes...    So, life at my new sober house has been OK. On the one hand I've made some good new friends and became more incorporated into the lights community. I finally feel like I'm where I belong and part of something, not just subsisting in isolation on the fringe of society... On the other hand, I'm so busy and stressed with all the treatment and meetings required of staying in a sober house. I'm tired of treatment living. I want to be independent again. But for now it is what it is. I don't know what the future holds... But enough of that.    I've been off hormones for a week bc my doctor won't approve my refill until she sees me, which is in a couple hours today. I also do my first labs today. While I didn't instantly morph back into a man being off hrt for a week (lol), it did disrupt my morning ritual of taking it with my coffee. Being OCD this did mess with my anxiety a bit.    This past week aside, I've been transitioning now for 3 1/2 months. It's still going well. My breast are not noticeably bigger, but the tissue is firmer. My nipples are harder and getting pretty sore now. My waist fat is melting away (low carbs, intermittent fasting and a lot of walking) and smoothing out and blending with my hips. I still get dysphoric at times about my appearance. But I've been looking at photos of me before this past spring and I feel so much more pretty and feminine then I did back then. I'm quite content with where I see my transition going.    I also have my first laser hair removal session Friday, so excited!    I've been hanging out quite a bit with my transition sister. After my doctor appointment today, we're going for a walk in the park. She's so lovely... 😍   Stay awesome y'all!  ~Toni

      I like it! This speaks to me, about the duality we struggle and diverge with.    ~Toni

      Interestingly I realized today I had not contacted my auto insurance company when I thought I had.  Duh!  I called USAA and after the agent did a little research she just changed the gender marker.  I logged in to the website a few minutes later and hocus pocus, it was correct!  Yeah.  I'm hoping my rates will change a little.     Jani

      Just came off the call. They said they are happy to support me in anyway they can but they don't have any specific policy built in. As such they are going away to do some research and reach out to other colleagues to see if they can work out the best way forward. On my side, does anyone have any links to good resources on transitioning to work at all? Would be good to read what other companies or people have as best practice so I know what might need to be discussed if anything is missing?

      Day two was very quiet actually. We sold a lot more stuff, but mostly through online sites. We shut it all down at 1 in the afternoon and went swimming at a friends pool. I actually had my 4 year old swimming without his floaties!! But nothing weird. Lol.  Nothing much. They couldn’t find the vin on the bike so they checked the vin on my title and saw that it wasn’t stolen and was in fact mine. So they said thank you and headed out. And a few minutes later the other person came and bought my bike.  Neither person seemed to have any issue with the bearded girl in a bikini with a bulge. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It says a lot about this part of the country I think. I am very grateful to live here.
