Philips ReAura - Bringing Salon Finesse to the Home

Monday, September 19, 2011

Philips is no stranger to introducing new beauty gadgets to the home, but they've stepped things up a notch by aiming to bring Fraxel style laser technology to the home and this, to my knowledge, is a beauty first.

The Fraxel laser is an in salon treatment which uses laser technology to resurface the skin. It's proven very effective at reducing fine lines and signs of ageing-which is great- but it it's pretty expensive. The Philips ReAura isn't exactly cheap at £799, but comparatively it's a bargain, and completely safe to use. Endorsed by leading Harley Street dermatologist, Dr Sam Bunting, I predict this will create a huge buzz on the beauty gadget market. Not only does it come with a standard manual, but also a consultation (in store or online) as well as an online support system and calendar reminders.


At first glance the Philips ReAura looks like a futuristic hairdryer, butappears to glide easily over the skin without obstruction. It's encouraged that you first apply the conductive gel provided, to help it glide and then use a moisturiser (also provided) afterwards to soothe the skin. The ReAura uses a lower level laser than you get in a salon, but you make up for this by using it twice a week for 8 weeks - the encouraged time to see real results.

Speaking of results, after 12 weeks of use, the following was reported by 64 testers - 89% saw an overall improvement in their skin's appearance, 86% reported a smoother skin texture, 83% noticed a more even skin tone and 81% had reduced fine lines.

I've been given the chance to try this out and I have my hopes pinned on this refining my skin texture and improving my skin tone. Time will tell, I'm a little sceptical, but we'll see...





I found this short infommercial video on You Tube which explains it all far better than me!




The Phillips ReAura will be available from Space NK this month.
