Philips Lumea Prestige BRI956

Philips Lumea BRI956/00 Review Summary

For all-over total body hair removal, it doesn’t get better than this. 

Easy and fast to use, within just 3 treatments body hair is almost entirely gone. After that, it’s just a light touch-up here and there every 4-8 weeks. This saves you so much time.

Because it comes with all 4 attachments, it’s never been easier to treat all unwanted body hair.

This is perfect for those who want safe, fast body hair removal on legs, face, underarms and bikini lines. If you just want to treat your legs, try the BRI950/00 instead.

The Good

  • thumbs-o-up
    Comes with all four available attachments for complete body treatment: treat underarms, bikini line, facial area and body with one device
  • thumbs-o-up
    Lasts for up to 20 years: no replacement parts needed. One single investment gives you hair-free skin for 20 years!
  • thumbs-o-up
    Automated safety features: It doesn’t matter if you’re watching Netflix and barely paying attention to the IPL device, it can only flash if it’s safely against your skin. Now…what shall we watch?
  • thumbs-o-up
    Up to 92% hair reduction in just 3 treatments: save time by switching your body hair removal to IPL and you’ll only have to touch-up every one to two months!
  • thumbs-o-up
    Corded and cordless: change it to suit your environment. No plug socket? No problem!

The Bad

  • thumbs-o-down
    Lots of attachments if you’re only interested in treating your legs. Choose the BRI950/00 instead if you just want two attachments. 
  • thumbs-o-down
    A large upfront cost. As this lasts for 20 years though, think of how much it’ll save you in the long term.

Comfortable and easy to use…

With a new design and improved technology from the older models, the BRI956/00 is the more comprehensive cousin of the BRI950/00.

Ergonomically designed, this sits easily in your hand and stays comfortable even if you’re doing every body part in the same session.

Hair-free everywhere….

The BRI956/00 comes with all four available attachments.

These allow you to easily treat your body (legs and stomach), your face (particularly chin and upper lip), your bikini line and your underarms.

Each attachment is uniquely shaped and sized to treat its designated area as effectively as possible.

With added filters on the facial attachment, your skin stays safe and unaffected by the light - only the hair will be dealt with!

Philips claim the BRI596 will last up to twenty years.

Effective faster and never runs outs…

Unlike some IPL brands, you’ll never need to replace the bulb in the Philips Lumea. That’s because it lasts for up to twenty years. Pretty incredible right?

One investment, twenty years of benefits.

Talk about spreading the overall cost!

The updated Prestige, the BRI956/00, sees up to a 92% reduction in hair after just three treatments. Improved from the 75% reduction in the models a few years ago.

Along with the BRI950/00, this is one of the most effective home IPL systems on the market today.

Smart technology makes it super safe…

There’s no question about the safety of this product. The SmartSkin Sensor allows you to instantly test your skin colour and the machine will alter its settings to those most appropriate for you.

That means the light intensity will be perfect and you don’t even have to do anything.

A further safety feature is the light flashes. These only work when the device is pressed against skin fully, making it impossible for the flashes to reach your eyes. Nifty eh?

The Philips Lumea SmartSkin Sensor will test your skin colour and alter its settings to those most appropriate for you.

Flexible use anywhere…

This is one of the only models that comes cordless and corded. That means you can choose the most convenient charging system for you and if you’re not near a plug socket then no problem!
