Excellent Product

I found this product perfect and comfortable to use, i started the treatment on my legs and i am very pleased with the results, no pain but annoying when the light kept flashing. I can see a huge difference compared to shaving, the hair growth is very little and my legs feel very smooth. The IPL is very easy to use once you have read and understood the instructions. I like the ideas of do this in the comfort of your own home. I would recommend this product, as i think the results are very good and gives you smooth feeling legs.

Amazing

I am writing th9is review after using it twice - I will update regularly. Test patch was done, no problems. I am a wimp - and was rather reluctant to get started. On first and second application - no pain and very little discomfort. It was difficult to use on the legs but once I adjusted it sideways - it was relatively easy. My legs feel amazing.

I can't wait to be completely fuzz free!

I've always wanted to try IPL but I was worried about how it would feel and whether I would actually see any results. I'm so happy I've been able to use the Braun Silk Expert over the past 4 weeks to see how it works for myself! I was pleasantly surprised with how pain free it was to use! To begin with you only need to use it once a week, and the hardest thing was remembering which day to do the treatment! I set a reminder in my phone to make sure I did it on the right day and it didn't take long to do my legs and under my arms. For the first couple of weeks there isn't much noticable difference, but as you go into week 3 and 4 you can really notice that it takes longer for your hair to grow and there are small patches forming where the hair doesn't seem to be coming back. I am so excited to see the continuing results and to be fuzz free! I'll definitely be trying it on other areas of my body too! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

At last a product that gets rid of unwanted hair!

I have been considering laser hair removal treatment for a while. I have thick dark hair so literally a few hours after shaving you can feel the hair growing back. When I did my first treatment with the Braun Silk Expert I was a bit sceptical... could a home laser device really stop hair growth? I have used this product 5 times now and I have already noticed a huge difference! After a week of not shaving my legs the hair growth is more like day 2 of growth before I started using the Braun Silk Expert. Not only that I have patches of hair where the hair has stopped growing completely. On my legs I have been able to use the full power as they are not as sensitive. On my underarms I had to utilise the sensitivity button as it does sting a little. Please do not be put off by the pain, at most you feel a warm zap sensation. I have tried epilating and that is about 10 times more painful then this is. I would definitely recommend this product it is brilliant and is making me more confident!

Quick and painfree

Having used the product for 4 consecutive week I can say that the IPL is relatively painfree (much less than epilating, similar to a hot rubber band flick) and has been easy to use. When using on legs I realised it was easier to turn the device sideways so that it could make full contact wit the skin. I have started to see a reduction in the hair regrowth but I think it may take quite a few more sessions to see a dramatic change. The hair growth does however appeared to have slowed down slightly which is a bonus. The face brush is a good addition and is gentle yet works great with various cleansers. I would recommend this product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk-Expert IPL BD 5008

I have only used this product for two weeks so I have not seen the complete result yet but I am already very impressed. It is very easy to use, light and come with the face facial cleansing brush as added bonus! Hopefully this is the permanent solution to the constant painful waxing!

Excellent results

I found this product to be so easy to use and was surprised at how effective it was. I can honestly say the results are amazing and it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be. I tried it on my arms and legs and it didn't take very long. Just don't forget to shave first and I found keeping an ice pack close will make it even less painful.

Simple and effective

Ok I was very sceptical when I used this IPL device at first after reading many negative reviews of similar products but I am pleased to say my opinion has changed. Really easy to use and with the sensitive setting was kind to my skin. I have used this for 3 treatments now and certainly can see less hair growth and so less shaving so skin softer as not irritated by shaving. Very happy with the results so far and happy to recommend to others. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
