BEAUTY: Rio Beauty GO Laser

A while ago now I was sent the Rio Beauty GO Laser to try out - a laser hair removal treatment. I know that most women will be with me when I say how annoying and time consuming keeping yourself hair free is - it's a chore. We've all had those random sunny days we go to wear no tights and realise we haven't shaved our legs for a week or *that* vest top will have to be for another day as the underarms haven't been defuzzed in a while. I thought I could only dream of hair free days, until I read about the Rio Beauty GO Laser.

Soon after I received this product I found out I was pregnant, so couldn't really use it over the summer. Instead of letting it sit around for 9 months unused I let my sister-in-law borrow it. We checked her skin type would suit it, which it did so she began using it at the start of the summer. Very much like me, she dreamt of not having the daily faff of shaving and wanting something more permanent. This review is my sister-in-laws findings and opinions of this product, with my opinions thrown in when necessary.  

'Enjoy beautifully smooth skin every day with Rio Go Laser™. Laser hair removal for face and body hair.
GO LASER™ hair removal works by sending a laser beam to the hair follicle with enough energy to permanently disable the root without affecting the surrounding area. The result is permanent hair reduction. 
Simple to use, Go Laser hair removal is suitable for unwanted face or body hair. Just plug in and Go.'

How incredibly smart does it look?! It doesn't look intimidating or overwhelming, which some may expect with a laser hair removal device. The instructions were simple and easy to follow, with clear visual instructions that meant you couldn't make a mistake. My sister-in-law said that it was easy to use and not as painful as she was expecting, more uncomfortable than painful. She tried it on her legs to start with. The results? Significantly less hair on her legs, she's not completely hair free as it takes quite a few treatments but she can definitely get away without shaving for a lot more days now. She's been super impressed with how easy it was to use, it wasn't too heavy.

One of the only downsides is that the area the laser targets at any one time is pretty small, which means covering your whole legs takes a lot of time and patience. There are two treatment modes -  scan mode that targets multiple hairs (but still a small area) and single hair mode, which does what it says on the tin. Unless the hair is on your face I can't really imagine when you'd want to target only a single hair but maybe that's just me?

Overall my sister-in-law is so pleased with the outcomes and she's going to continue using it every now and again until I want it back when our baby is born!

Do you dream of a life without the hassle of shaving everyday?

Feel free to leave me a comment :)
