Razors, hot wax, removal creams; none of it is any fun at all. Oftentimes, all the efforts result in cuts, nicks, burns, and irritation that can make even the most ardent beauty-seeker threaten to throw their hair removal device out the window and never pick it up again. And all of this for just days of smooth skin. Surely there’s got to be another and better way, right? Well, there is, but it’s going to cost you. Laser hair removal is an oft-forgotten option that is perfect for those who dream of never touching another razor again, but it comes with a hefty price tag that makes it inaccessible for most. Luckily there’s a wide variety of options for laser hair removal at home for a fraction of the cost. With a good machine, you can achieve just as good results as you would at a clinic and without moving from your couch. Not all machines are created equal, so read further to find out some of our top-recommended options. 1. CosBeauty IPL This nifty little laser device is packed with tech that promises to give you silky smooth legs and arms with little effort necessary. It uses proven and FDA approved Intensive Pulse Light (also known as IPL) to permanently remove hair in as little as 6 treatments, so it’s a great option for those who don’t want a super-involved process. It’s also relatively inexpensive and available on Amazon – perfect for those who don’t want to do a lot of shopping around. 2. Braun Gillette Venus Silk·Expert 5 IPLFor those who want a tried and true brand, this at-home hair removal machine is from Gillette, so you know you’re getting quality construction that will last a good long while. It promises very fast results with permanent hair growth reduction in only a month! It also uses the safest IPL technology out there and uses a smart skin sensor that perfectly adapts to your skin tone for the best results possible. According to the brand, you should be able to treat one of your legs in just 8 minutes, so you don’t have to worry about any wasted time. 3. LumaRx Full Body Hair Removal SystemIf you’re serious about removing as much body hair as possible, this is an option you should keep your eye on. Admittedly, it tends towards the expensive end of the spectrum although it is still far cheaper than going to a professional. This laser system is specifically meant to be used over large areas of the body but can be used everywhere from your chin to your underarms to your legs and even your bikini line. It really does it all. It’s gentle but it can reduce up to 94 percent of hair in just three treatments, so it’s ultra-effective. It also features a replaceable cartridge that works for over 40 individual treatments, so you shouldn’t need another hair removal machine for a very, very long time. This one is in it for the long haul. 4. Feeke IPL Hair RemovalWanting something smaller and more compact? The Feeke laser hair removal machine is a great choice that also happens to be a lot cheaper than much of the competition on the market. It is small and is ideal for use on more concentrated areas of the body like your bikini line, underarms, or upper lip. Despite its small package, it is just as effective as professional treatments, resulting in a massive difference in just one to two months of treatment depending on frequency. The company also claims that it holds almost a million flashes, which ensures you’ll never have to buy another hair removal system. That’s super economical and we love this option for it. 5. Tria Beauty Hair Removal Laser Perhaps with some of the most true-to-clinic results out there, the Tria at-home laser is a fantastic option for those who are worried that others might not be as effective. This laser device is powered by the same Diode laser technology the professionals use and delivers over three times the hair-eliminating energy of competing brands. Oh, and all of this is for just a fraction of a clinic visit price. It’s also really easy to use thanks to its unique LED display that guides you through the treatments and is significantly easier on the eyes because its lights aren’t nearly as intense as they are on IPL devices. While all of these options are great for removing unwanted body hair, you should be careful while using them. Despite being FDA-cleared and safe, it’s still easy to experience adverse effects and irritation when using any at-home laser hair removal machine. Always begin with a patch test to ensure your skin doesn’t react negatively and avoid particularly sensitive areas, especially until you’ve gotten the hang of your specific device. Additionally, always follow directions for use. Don’t go overboard on treatments trying to get it all done faster and don’t use on darker skin than recommended, as both of these things can cause some serious burning or discoloration. When in doubt, err on the side of caution. Do that and you’ll have a significantly safer (and more effective!) hair removal experience!

Still my favorite Magnetic lashes
Still my favorite Magnetic lashes
Lately I can’t stop reaching for my #MoxieLash - Bossy lash[products]#[FiveStars] because of how flirty and pretty they are 😍 you get a ton of uses with these and the magnetic liner isn’t going anywhere! These last me for a good 6 hours straight even outdoors with zero movement or budging! This is their 5 magnet lash but they have new 10 magnet lashes that literally are rock solid on the eyes! A little tip I learned while using these is you can use whatever regular eyeliner you use to create your wing shape and then just use the magnetic liner in place of lash glue. Also, you can apply while it’s still a little wet for superior hold! They don’t advertise it that way however I noticed they stick nicer when applied with the liner still being a little wet.
Let’s chat hair color!

What is a hair toner? A toner is a semi or demi permanent hair color that either adds or neutralizes tone in your hair- that’s where the word toner comes from. As a colorist, I use a toner on 99% of my blondes. A problem I’ve run into in the past is a new client telling me they do NOT want a toner or that they’ve been told they’re only for fixing mistakes! Let’s pause here. Without a toner your hair color will be what I call “raw blonde” aka whatever your color wants to lift to on its own. This can include uneven color from previous touch ups, or yellow or orange undertones that our hair naturally has. A toner is my weapon to help combat these uneven tones and leave your hair as our desired result. So- next time your stylist uses a toner you can ask, what color are we enhancing today?! The answer might surprise you! Xo
Glass skin? Uhm YES!
Glass skin? Uhm YES!
This mist is so fun to use. You can use it with makeup or on its own! I tend to use it on bare skin for a natural glowing look. It is a fine mist that moisturizes, nourishes and helps fight damage. It also helps fight irritation and calm the skin. I will be posting a video a little later of me using this before makeup application! Makeup glides on after using this to prep the skin. What’s in it: peach extract Hyaluronic acid Reishi mushroom lotus extract cica ceramides much more! This product has so many awesome ingredients, it’s hard not to love! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Veil Mist I will give this a 5/5! Pros: can be used to refresh makeup can be used on bare skin hydrating calming gives a wonderful dewy glow smells nice Cons: $30 for a mist is a bit pricey but this mist does so much in return 💞 let me know a mist you love!
