Veet Infini'Silk Review Summary
For those looking for a very affordable way to get into IPL hair removal, this is a great gadget. It’s cordless, rechargeable and has the standard five intensity settings to suit every skin type that’s compatible with IPL. With a clever automatic skin colour sensor, you don’t need to worry about choosing the wrong setting for you and the facial attachment allows you to use this on your upper lip and chin as well.
While this Veet model lacks the real quality design and feel of the Philips Lumea range, it is still very effective and easy to use. The lifespan is less than the 140,000 flashes of some of the lower Lumea models and nowhere near as long as the 250,000 of the SC2009 but still, it will last for several years and allow you to work out whether you’d like to invest in another IPL system afterwards.
Veet are a highly successful hair removal company that have been producing great, affordable products for years. Their products are available all over the world and have a huge following of loyal customers. It was only a matter of time before they came into the IPL industry and they’ve come up with a decent system.

It's not the most attractive IPL System...
This Veet Infini-Silk isn’t the most attractive IPL system that’s ever graced these pages and looks like something you might stumble upon in an optician’s. Saying that though, it’s not like you’re using it on stage so who really cares what it looks like.
While Veet call their attachments, somewhat confusingly, ‘cartridges’, it’s actually just an attachment to the front of the device. This comes with two attachments, the body ‘cartridge’ and the facial ‘cartridge’. The facial attachment is a precision tool and is ideal for the bikini area and underarm area as well.
The Skin Colour Sensor on this Veet model is excellent for ensuring that you are using the correct light intensity settings and this greatly helps damage prevention. This is also especially useful if you are moving from pale, usually covered skin, to slightly darker, more sun-exposed skin.
The Skin Contact Sensor is now common on many brands of IPL systems but no less important for it. This sensor ensures that the light window is held to skin and the ring around it is in full contact. This prevents accidental flashing, especially important if you are treating the upper lip and other areas near the eyes.
Like most other systems, the Veet Infini’Silk requires more treatments when you first start using it than it will after two months or so. Nevertheless, with 120,000 flashes, this device should last you for many years before conking out. You cannot buy replacement bulbs but after all those years the market may have moved on anyway and it’ll be time for you to upgrade.
As with all IPL treatments, the areas must first be shaved to create an easier path for the light to travel to the follicle. While this is a faff to begin with, after the first two months hair growth will be non-existent and you won’t need to bother with this anymore.
But it is easy to use...
This device is easy and comfortable to hold despite its Star Trek looks and has an easy to understand user interface on top. This tells you things like when the device is ready to use and what setting it’s on. It’s lightweight as well, which means you can treat any area of skin, even underarms without your arm aching.
