Hair free happiness!

I have been trying this for 4 weeks, doing a treatment on legs and a underarms every week. It is so easy to use, light and comfortable to hold. The treatment can be done quickly so it can be fitted in so easily. You have to shave all hair off before you use it but I have noticed that as hairs have grown through they seem to just fall out. Most fall out just through washing etc but the ones that have fallen out while I have been paying attention fill me with joy!!! I am looking forward to hair free legs next Summer. I would definitely recommend this. It isn't cheap but I think it is worth the money especially for those who are conscious about their body hair. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Tested on hubby...

I was kindly given the opportunity to test this product and unfortunately being pregnant I couldn't trial it on myself, although the facebrush was an added bonus. Which I absolutely love!!! ... However I have used my husband to trial this on.... if he can handle it.. I can right?!We are on our 3rd treatment on my hubbys back (he's a gorilla from the neck down) and so far so good! We carried out the patch test and then 24hrs later I carried out the treatment on him. He's fairly fair skin with dark hair to I'm expecting good results! Firstly we prepped the whole back by clean shaving & then I used the hand held hair removal machine to 'zap' away... he didn't flinch! And it's really easy to use. As I've mentioned we're now on the third treatment and I think the hairs are definitely coming back finer and sparser and will definitely keep the treatments up! I don't imagine all the hairs will go but definitely make his hairy back more manageable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My biggest problem has been solved

This machine really works, my body hair just keeps getting lighter and thinner every week. I have had a problem with my face and body hair all my life, as my skin is fair and hair is dark, but at last I shave and don't need to shave again after two days as I used to do, now I have even hair free patches on my legs and arms. The best results I have noticed is on my face, nearly no hair. Just fan tastic. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

Love It, Love It and Love It.

I was ecstatic when i learned I'd be trying this product and i certainly wasn't disappointed. It wasn't heavy so didn't cause my hand/arm to ache. The results after 4 weeks are astounding, I'm no longer looking like a yeti, Thanks Braun for making me so happy x [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Good Results

So far I have used this product for 4 treatments over a 4 week period and I am pleased with the results. First of all it's easy to use (just make sure that you read the instructions first). You have to shave the area of your body that you want to use this product on first and make sure that the area is clean. I tried it on one of my legs and also one of my armpits as I wanted to compare how well this product works to my normal wet shave. I stuck with the gentle setting on this product and there was absolutely zero pain. The only downside is the very bright light that this product emits and trying to see what you are doing without staring directly at the light. Overall there does seem less hair growth after the 4 week period, so I am really excited to see what happens over a longer period. I have tried shaving, waxing and epilating, but this just may be the ultimate in hair removal. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

IPL, frees up time

I have been using this for 4 weeks now & it is very easy to use.just place on and press the button. I have felt no pain to speak of, at most a fraction of a second slight discomfort which has gone before you realize. I have had no adverse reactions. It is so quick to use , took me about 5 minute do 1 lower leg, less than 10 minutes with a bit of help for the upper leg. Less than a minute to do under 1 arm. But time saved during the week not having to reshave every couple of days is immeasurable. In the long run this will save you loads of time.my skin feels a lot smoother for longer than if I had shaved. I liked the design fits very easy in your hand. All in all a great product , definitely recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A bit early to see the results...

The product was a little intimating and when using it on the first treatment I was sure that I was using it wrong - it omitted a bright light and gave me a shock but having checked the instructions I saw that it was supposed to do this. I felt that the instructions were a bit limited and would have loved if there was a video instruction instead. The product was easy to use, however it was quite large and heats up quite a lot whilst you are using it - which is slightly uncomfortable. It was easy to go over the areas and to do legs and underarms took around 30-40 minutes. In the first few weeks I didn’t notice anything but I think with continued use it will make a noticeable difference. Overall I thought the product needed more instructions but it was easy to use and if it gets the desired results I definitely think it is worth using. It’s quick (30-40 minutes a week!) and in the long run would save you a lot on your salon bills and razors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Excellent home hair removal system.

I was a bit nervous about using this at first as was worried it might be painful. The instructions were easy to read and the app downloaded. I decided to do legs, bikini line, under arms and face!! I found it really easy to use and not at all painful with the sensitive setting. I do wonder if I cover all areas particularly on glide mode but as this is a treatment over a period of time I am sure I will cover everywhere. The harder to reach areas are a bit more of a challenge but with each use I seem to get better. I have braved the other settings and they are more pinpricks than pain. It doesn't take long and easily fittings each session in around working and looking after 2 toddlers. I would say there is some signs of it working already at 4 sessions. My under arms and legs have definitely slowed down in growth. I would highly recommend, it may seem costly at first but it could potentially save you money and hassle in the long run.
