As mentioned earlier, I was very excited at the arrival of my ReAura today. I’m going to spend the next couple of days watching the how-to DVD, reading the impressively comprehensive instruction manual and getting to grips with my new favourite thing before lasering the bejesus out of my skin. So it’s safe to say expect plenty of updates, progress reports, thoughts on the experience of using it and anything else I learn along my ReAura journey.
I’m so excited about this gadget; having been recommended Fraxel laser on many occasions by various dermatologists to treat my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH or post-acne scarring), I can’t wait to see what impact the ReAura has. Whilst the ReAura isn’t essentially marketed at this type of pigmentation, I talked through the possibilities of what this machine can do with a Philips Skincare Specialist (a must if you’re considering purchasing this machine as Keira – the lady I spoke to – is highly trained and able to answer any questions you may have) and as I mentioned I have PIH, Keira believes that the ReAura would help. Not only that, but it will also address my other skin issues including the fine lines I have (sadly) appearing on my forehead and around my mouth. It’s also aimed at improving the overall texture and tone of the skin and being absolutely skin obsessed (I spent years battling acne and I’m finally at a point in my life where I can joyfully focus on the many other facial skin flaws I have, since the acne is now under control) I honestly cannot wait to start using this machine since the reviews have been so impressive. It’s also safe to say that the long-suffering boyfriend and couldn’t-care-less-about-your-blog mother have both decided they have things that they want treated, so expect a lot of pictures of the various Geek family members. So! Without further ado, whatever ado may be, here’s what arrived today:
Here’s everything you get in the box.
Instructional DVD, manual and instructions on joining My ReAura.

As you can see, you get absolutely everything you could possibly need to make sure you get the best from the ReAura, so once I’ve confidently familiarised myself with the machine, I’ll start (b)logging my experiences and charting my new skin! I can’t wait!!
