Nood vs Braun vs Ulike: Which IPL Hair Removal is the Best?

I’ve got to be honest with you – one of the biggest reasons I started looking into IPL Hair Removal was because I was so exhausted with the usual hair removal solutions in the market. I mean, no matter which method you choose, the hair always comes back quickly and pricklier! Think of it yourself… choosing a razor to shave your hair off is no good because the hair grows back so quickly; who wants to deal with little pokey bits of hair growing out of every cell anyway! Hair removal creams are messier than my husband in the kitchen, and epilators are so painful, they deserve a special place in Hell!

When my friend suggested IPL, I had given up on finding a hair removal solution that would need me to sell a kidney to pay for it (I’m looking at you, Laser Hair Removal!). As an individual, I’m careful about the devices I use on my body. That’s why I decided to try three kinds of IPL devices so that I would know which one was the best to use in the long run. I bought Ulike’s Sapphire AIR+, Nood’s Flasher 2.0, and Braun’s Silk·expert Pro 5.

Before we jump into the comparison of these three products, I want to explain to you how IPL works, especially if this post is helping you choose your first device.

How does IPL hair removal work?

Braun IPL hair removal device

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light uses strong pulses of light to penetrate the hair follicle. The light is absorbed by the pigment in your hair, causing energy to accumulate within the hair, turning it into heat. This heat moves lower down towards the cells that are responsible for creating your hair and destroys these cells.

What’s the difference between laser hair removal and IPL, you ask? Great question! The major difference is that IPL uses a bright light that penetrates the hair follicle through a series of light filters, producing a broad band of light wavelengths. Laser, on the other hand, produces only a single wavelength of light.

Laser hair removal is best left to the experts and should be done in a salon. IPL can be safely done at home using a high-quality handheld device. The laser can be considerably more expensive than IPL devices.

Now that we’re all on the same page in terms of knowing how IPL functions, let’s compare these three devices and the results I got from them.

First impressions and Aesthetic Appeal

When I look at all three devices that I bought, I personally like the appearance of Ulike Sapphire Air+, it has emerald-greenish sapphire color. The packaging it comes in also looks and feels super luxe which is a great thing if you want to buy this as a gift for someone.

Both the Flasher 2.0 and the Silk·expert Pro 5 are predominantly white. The Silk·expert Pro 5 has a bit of champagne gold color on the head area which gives it a slightly more sophisticated look than the Flasher 2.0.

Inside the Box

The Flasher 2.0 only comes with a charging cable. The Silk·expert Pro 5 comes in a vanity kit thing with a power cable and three types of heads included (standard, wide cap, 2 precision caps). It also has a regular Venus extra smooth razor.

I know the FDA says that shades aren’t mandatory, but I still appreciate the protective eyewear that Ulike provides.

Ease of Use…. Braun and Ulike

As a beginner who can’t be bothered with reading long and detailed instruction booklets, I found Ulike’s Sapphire AIR+ and Braun super easy to use. All you need to do is unbox your device, charge it for a bit, switch it on, and voila! It’s ready to use.

Choose the level of intensity you need depending on where you intend to use it and get set to experience salon-like, amazing results within the comfort of your private space.

Pain experienced…

Ulike IPL device uses something called Ice-Cooling Tech which actively controls the surface temperature when it makes contact with your skin. This innovative design reduces the temperature during use to 10 degrees Celsius and blocks harmful UV light, there is less chance of pain or burning when applied.

This is a technology that the company has exclusively developed and patented, I think devices from other companies will add similar functionality in the future.

Guaranteed results in less time… Ulike and Braun

Both Ulike and Braun guarantee results in 4 weeks. Nood, on the other hand, says that results can be expected in 8 weeks, if not less.

The 4-week results guarantee is a huge plus for me because who wants to spend frequent hours removing hair? And After 4-week of use, there is definitely less hair growth, and I no longer seem to have to shave constantly to remove unwanted hair on my legs.

All 3 devices that I bought are FDA approved. Braun offers a 100-day money-back guarantee, while both Ulike and Nood offer a 90-day money-back guarantee.

I also love that both Ulike and Braun offer a 2-year replacement warranty. That’s one full year more than Nood. The Ulike website lists what the warranty covers, and that’s an added advantage.
