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.

      i find the best thing to do is just practice and see  what suits you if your happy then bingo you gotta think most women themselves arent perfect at makeup !!!

      Ugh I hate that. I can’t tell you how many times I hear Michael at work and I turn my head. There’s like 5 michaels in our garage too. So it happens a good bit. And it’s never me. Lol

      I can see an application of this theory at work in the murder rates of Trans women in non-white racial and ethnic communities where masculinity is given special status and narrow definition.  The same is true even in geographic regions where general "male privilege" is held higher than female status.  It is that male privilege that is currently on display and excuses allegations of sexual force against women.

      Great.  Yes soon your old name will be unfamiliar and you won't become alert every time you hear it.     Jani
    • SugarMagnolia
      Yes, it gets easier and easier every day which is what I'd hoped for. I'm still getting used to people calling me Julie at work, though. It seems completely normal in the rest of my life, but I didn't realize how surprising it would sound coming from my co-workers. Its such great blend of being surprised to hear it and being relieved/happy to not have to hide. ❤️

      There are two forms for obtaining passports, the original and renewal.  For some changes you need to use the original form even though you have a current valid passport.  The lady at the office who took mine said I had the wrong form until she realized I needed the gender marker changed.  So read the instructions carefully.  Best of luck.   Jani

      I would always prefer they err on the side of caution.  Years ago a guy I worked with had shoulder surgery and never came out of the anesthesia.  He was young and healthy.  it was so sad.  We never know how our bodies will react to it.   You'll be fine and your day will come.    Jani

      Thank you very much.  I need to get my passport or update my BC cause I found out that the state of AZ when flying, the TSA will no longer accept our licenses next year and we will we need to use our passports for TSA or get a second special federal ID card to fly out of AZ.

      Hi Mickey,   I can certainly understand your frustration.   That has to be a total let-down.   Hopefully you can get things rescheduled quickly.    While you may have thought the swelling was "not that bad" in your legs, any swelling would be something to note and consider preop/pre-anesthesia.  While the anesthesiologist may have been overly cautious, he's also keeping your safety in mind.  Anesthesia can take a left turn very quickly.  People tend to think that surgery is very exciting as it's portrayed on TV - constant motion and drama.  Generally it's hours of routine boredom punctuated occasionally by a few moments of sheer terror.  That "terror" is generally when people have an unexpected bad reaction to the anesthesia.    Best of luck!

      The problem is mostly re-enforced with those suffering from conservatosis. Conservatosis is very hard to cure, steady doses of truth can help. Unfortunately we have a society that feeds on a conservative propaganda machine, and that helps keep the hate machine rolling.   It's a terrible condition of the mind, it starts when your always afraid, step out of line, the man comes and takes you away.
    • MaryMary
      that's a great article I think. That's good to have a fresh perspective (for me at least). It will maybe help me better deal with those people
    • CyndiRae
      Yes that sounds like it would work, there are certain words required on the letter from Dr, same requirements as SSA, stating you have completed the transition from M to F for example. I did mine 5 years ago, and since my previous passport was still valid in my old name/gender, I did not need to present a birth certificate to prove citizenship (that's what they really care about these days !).   C -
    • Amy LeBlanc
      Thank You CyndiRae.  Would my original Endocrinologist letter that I needed for the DMV and SS office work?     Lots of Love   Amy
    • CyndiRae
      This info sounds correct Amy for name change, there is a 2nd part of this and that is the gender change on the passport, I am assuming you want the "F" for "Federally Female 😃". That part requires a physician's letter.   Good luck   C -
