Hair removal is a pain at the best of times. It's time consuming, painful, pricey, or a combination of all of the above. Having used all the various de-fuzzing options at one point or another in my life, I'd say IPL is a bit of a game-changer. If you've been thinking of buying one, there's 59% off the Braun IPL Silk Expert Pro 5 for Amazon Prime Day (opens in new tab). It's the lowest price this IPL has ever been, and the deal ends in a matter of hours.

You're probably already familiar with the concept if you've landed on this page, but essentially IPL machines use pulses of light to significantly (and painlessly) reduce the regrowth of body hair, all perfectly safely and from the comfort of your own home. They won't banish body hair for permanently, but for certain skin tones and hair types they will seriously reduce the amount of hair and make staying hair-free much easier. 

I got my hands on the very same Braun IPL machine that's the subject of this cracking Prime Day deal, and it's now my chosen method of hair removal. You can read my Braun Silk Expert Pro 5 IPL machine review to find out more – T3 ranks it amongst the very best IPL machines around.

One of the main downsides of IPL machines is that they're expensive (although actually if you figured it out compared to the cost of getting professionally waxed for a year or two, for example, it wouldn't look so bad). This deal makes it much more reasonable.

The latest version of Braun's IPL machine is compact, safe, painless and simple to use. SensoAdapt sensors match the intensity of light to your skin tone, and there's a small head to swap on for more precise areas. This is the cheapest price we've ever seen this IPL machine, and the deal expires today.

If you've been in the market for an IPL machine for any amount of time, you'll know that they're pretty much always on sale – so you need to take that RRP with a large pinch of salt. However, that's not to say this isn't a good offer: to the best of our knowledge, this model is typically around £300 or more, and it has never been under £260.
