Easy to use IPL

The IPL looks and feels really good quality, it is quite lightweight and easy to hold. The shape allows me to see the area I am treating clearly, and the slim head makes it easy to manoeuvre and avoid any moles or freckles. It takes me about 10 - 15 minutes in total to do both of my lower legs, and it takes less than a minute to do both underarms.My skin is pale so the light intensity is at the highest level. Most of the time I can't feel anything when I use it on my legs but just occasionally I get a flash that feels a bit snappy, I would not describe it as painful though. I use the gentle mode on my underarms, the light feels hot but it does not hurt.Pros- Painfree- Easy to use- Automatic intensity adjustment- Sensitive mode- Precise head- Fast treatment time- 2 year guaranteeCons- Results not guaranteed- It could take up to 24 months to see results- Limited device lifetime of 120,000 flashes- Power cord can pull out of device too easily [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

3 weeks into it

At first I was scared to try it, but I instead of normally chicken in out on trying something electrical on my body. I thought this one I would give a go. I first tried it on my husband incase it hurt, but it didn't. It didn't hurt him one little bit. So I gave it a go in my own body. At first I was nervous but then I soon got the hang of it. I did my legs and my arms and it was great, no worries and very easy to use. I've been doing it 3 weeks so far. I know I need more time to realise the results but it's a great gadget to have and I've had no problems what so ever. I am defiantly going to carry on using it. And for some strange reason my legs actually do feel a lot smoother. Brilliant little easy to use gadget. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So impressed!

Such an impressive duo!I have been looking around to get one of these "do it at home" for permanent hair removal, so when Braun came about, I was intrigued at first: much lighter in hand, so easy to use. After using it for three weeks, I am so impressed with the result - I only shave my legs once a week now! And I am certain it will get even better!In addition, the exfoliator is a bonus - my skin feels softer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.]

Silky Smooth with Braun IPL

(this is my 5th! time trying to post this!)Very easy to use - really pleased with the results - on my legs noticeable difference after the 2nd week - by 4th week silky smooth and able to go to maintenance sessions.With underarms - noticeable results at 4 weeks with less coarse hair, less hair regrowth and less thick hair but more sessions needed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So far, so good!

I've used this device for 3 weeks and I can honestly say that the hair that's growing by back is patchy. My hair is super stubborn so I think it will take the full 12 weeks for me to see perfect results but I am very pleased with the progress. It's so easy to use, you just plug in and go. I feel no pain at all on my legs but I do feel an electric shock after each pulse of light when doing under my arms. Not unpleasant enough to stop though. Il Update the review on the results after I've used it a few more times [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Really easy

I have only used the product twice so far and I am surprised how easy it is to use. The gliding mode means that very little concentration is required meaning I can watch TV at the same time! I personally found it rather painful I had to use feather mode for the first treatment but for the second I just used normal, it was still painful but manageable. (I have light skin and dark thick hair) I have only given 4 stars as I haven't seen any results yet as it takes up to 12 weeks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Fantastic product

Well I have been using the Braun IPL system for nearly 4 weeks and I love it, so easy to use along with the app you can download to keep track of treatments its amazing when I first tried it a couple of times I could smell burning of the hairs and a bit of a sting but apart from that it's been amazing I still have hairs coming through on my legs but they are a lot finer as for my arms I have noticed a real difference I am confident i will be hair free with a few more treatments it's a fantastic product and I have recommended to all my family and friends. I love it so happy I was given the opportunity to try this fantastic product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk Expert IPL

I have tried salon IPL in the past and was excited, though sceptical, about getting the same results at home, especially as I have quite a lot of hair growth on my arms, have to shave my legs daily and usually miss out the hard to reach places! After two uses I can safely say this device could change my life! The treatments are less painful than waxing or epilation and even though I am realistic about the timeframe for results I have already lifted loose hair after only my second treatment!The Braun Silk Expert is lightweight, easy to use and has a cord which is long enough to reach even the most awkward of places. The sensors automatically adjusts to your skin so all you do is hold it and press the button - its that easy! I work with customers so I used the 'feather mode' on my face, its great to have that option for the additional peace of mind. This device requires no replacement bulbs (should last 6 years!) so it is a great investment for anyone who struggles with hair removal. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
