After reading the booklet it said to do it every fortnight, after the first week, the second cycle was just before my period, considering I could use this on level 4 or 5 before without any discomfort, on that week, the heat was bearable but so much more heat to the skin. I realised, I'm due on! Could this contribute? Possibly. I did it this past Monday(3rd cycle) and the feel of the heat was just the same as it was on the first cycle. Go Figure.
I feel when doing this, it's setting aside a good hour in total for all the areas I wanted to do on my body, moustache, arms, armpits and legs. I've stuck to two, I didn't bother with my arms in the end. Not too sure why I decided to stop there, maybe because I'm not too fussed with the hair. It's just a good thing that I can go and do it at any time.
The flashing light isn't too much of a problem for me. You do want to use this in a well lit room so that the flashing isn't too bright or you can do what I do - put on sunglasses if the eyes are feeling sensitive. Though it's really not necessary!
Also, I'm still trying to get the hang of the armpits, I can't glide it like I would do the legs just because I'm abit more cautious of the skin around, I tend to go more at an angle near the bottom of my armpit. Other than that, it's easy enough and I can't complain due to the the fact that it's less than an hour put aside fortnightly so far Lumea, the secret to beautiful hair free skin, for up to 2 months is doing a good ol' job on my hairy mary.
