i-LIGHT® Pro Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System Spa Kit
Poor lifespan for bulb
I bought this for my wife and on her third week the bulb burnt out. She was using mid range on the power but still burnt. Remington customer service sent out a replacement bulb very fast! Again usin on medium power the bulb burnt on her third week of use. At $25 a bulb this will not work long. Something seem wrong on this end. Other than that, I would be able to say my wife is satisfied. At this point we are looking into other systems to see if there is a better product out there!!

I'm still at the beginning of treatment, I can not describe precisely, but I'm really enjoying recommend. Only, I believe that the bulb could last longer.

good but not great
Does a great job removing the hair if you can get the little head in the exact same spots everywhere both times that you laser (two weeks apart), but that is very hard to do since you can't really see the exact placement of the light so you end up with a lot of stragglers. Also wish you could laser the entire bikini area.

Licensed cosmetologist tries the IPL6000.
I received this product as a Christmas gift. I am a perfect candidate for this type of product as my skin is fair while my hair is dark. The good: The "pain" factor is minimal. I used my unit at full strength as my pain tolerance is quite high and my hair is a bit "resistant." For those wondering...the sensation is somewhat like being lightly snapped with a rubber band. Occasionally, there is a hot sensation as well. I would encourage full compliance with shaving before use. Shaving makes it a more comfortable process and you avoid the burning hair smell. The bad: The down side of this product is HUGE. The light cartridges do not come close to the "expected" usage as claimed by Remington. I wonder what sort of quality control metrics they used to obtain the numbers because I can assure you that they are not even close to accurate! How do I know exactly? Knowing the numerous consumer complaints, I actually COUNTED the pulses. (Also, it should be mentioned that I let the unit "cool" during use and was sure not to block air flow.) Cartridge 1: 361 pulses before failure. Cartridge 2: 408 pulses before failure. Cartridge 3: 329 pulses before failure. Total of 1098 pulses for 3 light cartridges! That is LESS than what Remington tells consumers to expect from a single cartridge. A complete misrepresentation of the life cycle of their product. This is a real disappointment. I believe this product could be quite good if the lights lasted anywhere near what the company claims. Either that or they should be sold in multi-packs at a substantial price reduction. I got about 25% of what I paid for.

I knew it sounded too good to be true
It has no effect what so ever. 200 dolars spent on nothing.

I've only done 2 treatments so far. Easy to use. A little pain but able to adjust to what you can handle. Haven't noticed any results yet. Hope to see soon and update this review.

So far....so good!
I just started using my ilight last week. 1st session was a pleasant surprise. I used the highest power setting and there isn't any pain. YAY! I like the results of my epilator, but it is sooo painful and causes ingrown hairs. So, if this works I will be so excited! The first 3 sessions are suppose to be 2 weeks apart and it takes a bit to see results. So, I will follow up on this review once some time passes. After the 1st session you do not see any results, but you are able to shave while using the ilight. Thanks Remington. So far you get 5 stars because the ilight isn't painful at all!
