Monday, 19 November 2012 21:28:41 Europe/London

Its winter time, tights and trousers are back on and there’s very minimal chance for any sunbathing, so I’m gonna bite the bullet and splash out on some IPL as it seems so much more affordable and available nowadays! I have spent a lot of money on laser hair removal in the past, with varying results, so it will be good to try one of these bargain basement places to see if the results differ, I am fed up of stubbly legs, so I’m hoping it will reduce the hairs even if it doesn’t get rid of them completely.
