Result!

I've been using this for 5 weeks now and it did significantly slow down hair growth.I used to have problems with ingrown hairs and that's over now,fantastic!The pain is so little compared to waxing,it's more like a tingling feeling.It did not make my skin red or any way harmed.All I can say is that if your skin type is right for it go now and buy this product!It also came with a body exfoliate which I love and find very useful!Ready for summer!Both products are very easy to use the Hair removal device simply plugs into the mains so no worries about it running out of battery!Thanks you for this awesome product Braun!I'm finally hair free and carefree!

Awesomely easy to use

I have really enjoyed trying out this new product - it's super easy to use, just hold it against your skin until the lights flash green and press the button.The movement is so much like shaving that it feels really natural, just go slowly and keep your finger on the button to get the IPL to work.It doesn't hurt at all, and in just 2 weeks, I'm noticing a difference. I'll keep you posted if the hair is permanently gone!My only complaint is that I think a pair of glasses would help, as it's tricky to ensure the lights stay green while looking away from the light! Especially around tricky areas like ankles. Otherwise, I love it" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Part 1

I was really pleased to be able to try out this device. My initial thoughts were 'wow its small' as I had seen other home devices attached to a base whereas this is just a handheld device that you plug into the wall. All you do is switch it on and you're good to go, no charging time and the cable is a good length. It is so simple to use and having had a test patch done at a salon I was aware of the ouch factor so tried it on 'sensitive' first - all you need to do is press the button on the top of the device and then press again when you want it off. I didn't feel a thing with it on although I was surprised by how bright the flash is - the manual does say to look away and I was glad I followed this instruction. I then tried it on 'full power' and again was surprised when I didn't feel anything on my legs, although I have epilated in the past so this probably helps.

painless hair removal

Have been using this for the past 4 weeks. Firstly the exfoliating brush is great, i love it. The handle is glittery and the shape is perfect size for handheld use in the shower. I have really noticed a difference in the skin on my arms and legs since using this.The Hair removal unit i love it. however not sure 4 weeks is long enough to say it has proven to remove hair for good. so far so good. I will update as i keep using it. It says my skin tone (fair) and dark hair is the ideal so i am expecting good results. I have used it and it is painless, so so far i am happy with it. will keep using and see how the regrowth goes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Smooth, sleek and rather unique

I was impressed with this product for a number of reasons and feel most of them are definitely noteworthy although I am aware I seem to be restricted to how long this review can be so I'll do my best to keep it brief.I found the packaging to be sleek and modern, clearly stating this product was unique, therefore giving me the impression this was a superior device to similar offerings currently on the market. The free sonic exfoliator was a lovely and relevant bonus, and made me feel the high RRP was even more justified.This seems comfortable to hold and is not as heavy or bulky as other IPL models and the corded design means there is no risk of that disappointing moment during which you've almost completed treatment only to find charge has run out. I do wish however there was the option to use this plugged in or unplugged, for ease of use within various scenarios.The product itself is attractive in appearance and seems easy to use, but one of the most noteworthy features has to be the skin adaptive technology unique to this product. It reads and rechecks your skin tone up to 80x per second to ensure that the correct level of light intensity is being delivered to the area, changing as your skin tone does.That alongside other safety features impressed me and made me feel this was more salon quality than other high street models but I felt the instruction booklets I received within the box weren't really informative or explanatory enough. I would have liked to have seen clearer and more explicit guidance on the length of time maintenance would be required as well as further information and statistics regarding some of the potential side effects. I feel if the instructions were amended somewhat and the product really does deliver permanent hair removal then I would be happy to award this a 5 star rating.Overall, I would say this is superior to other models on the market from my initial impressions. As of yet I have only used my device once so am unable to comment on the long term efficiency but will most definitely be using this in the long term and coming back to update or re-review as my experience grows and my hair hopefully doesn't!

Yes, I recommend this product !

Hoping for a hair-free Summer!

I received this product from supersavvyme as a tester. The box is nicely presented and comes with 2 plugs (including a 2 pin plug), the IPL device and a bonus addition exfoliator device. Who is it for? IPL is not suitable for everyone. It is vital that you check your skin and hair type against the table shown on the box and read the instructions and contraindications properly. I have dark hair and fair skin and would say that that is ideal for this type of treatment. Using Braun Silk Expert IPL: Follow the instructions which are really clear and well written. Firstly you need to shave the area to be treated. Wear sunglasses if possible but definitely look away and/or close your eyes before you press the flash button. I'm speaking from experience when I say the light is bright and can make you feel a bit 'off' as well as dazzled if you look at it directly while treating. The device needs to be plugged in to work. The button with the feather above it puts the device into gentle mode to emit gentler flashes, ideal for first time use and sensitive areas. On placing the sensors in contact with your skin, the Senso-Adapt feature will read your skin tone each time it is in contact. I found this a real comfort as it definitely changes depending on your skin tone which not all IPL devices do. The device will not emit a flash if not fully in contact or if your skin is too dark. The step and glide movement is useful for larger areas like legs and step and flash is good for smaller or trickier areas like face or ankles. One of the best things about this treatment is that it is virtually painless. You may feel a slight sensation of heat and the occasional mild stinging sensation when it catches a hair that wasn't shaved. This can also produce a slight burnt hair smell but I expect this means it is working! Avoid treating areas with moles or skin lesions. Results:So far, I'm happy with my results but it does take time. After just two treatments I noticed a reduction in hair on my legs and hair growing back more slowly. This is more noticeable in areas where the hair is finer, as you might expect. You can use this device once a week which feels regular enough. It's possible to download the Braun treatment app to remind you when your next treatment is due which is very helpful. Overall I found the device easy to use and much less time consuming than epilation. It takes me around 15-20 minutes to do both legs and I'm very hopeful for good results.

Yes, I recommend this product !

First thoughts.

I was all worked up for some kind of pain. There was non. Non at all. I have only used a few times so I cannot comment on the effectiveness just yet. I am currently using the device weekly for the initial start up period after that you change to monthly. The ease of use is good I first found parts of my legs tricky but I am getting there with it. The laser will only go off if the sensors on both sides are on your legs. It adapts to your skin tone. You shave as normal (If waxing you wax and the carry the process out a few days later). I would recommend if you fit the products requirements best checked before buying as some skin/ hair combinations are not able to use. I have never used something like this before but always wondered what it would be like. If that's you I would say give it a go if you have the chance you may be impressed.
