Beurer IPL 9000 SalonPro System - Permanent Hair R&hellip by Beurer
4.0 out of 5 stars Slow start!, 17 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Where do I start?
I've wanted one of these for a long time; epilation is my special subject so to speak and I've been interested in the IPL method for a while but never had the chance to try it. It's expensive in a salon and I suppose l like a lot of people I have had doubts about how it might measure up to the hype; salon treatment is a lot of money to shell out if it doesnt work.

The parts are smaller too and this does make a difference when cleaning; I make juice most mornings so a quick dunk in a bowl of hot water and fairy is a lot easier with the smaller parts.

Carte Noire Espresso No 5 Delicat 10 Coffee Capsul&hellip by Carte Noire
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a nespresso machine and unlike some was perfectlyh appy witht he quality and the price of the capsules. I understand the patent expired recently, allowing other companies to make compatible pods.
