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.]

Braun Silk-Expert IPL

I've now used the device twice. It's pain-free to use and is very easy to use. I find it is quite big, which isn't a problem, but some of the positions I'm getting myself into whilst doing my bikini line are quite interesting!! So far I haven't seen any noticeable results (hence only a 3 star rating), but as it's only the second time of using it, I'm not expecting to see any - the earliest I would expect to see anything is after the fourth treatment. I have found that I quite often press the 'sensitive' mode button by accident whilst using it, but other than that, so far so good. [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.]

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.]

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.]

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.]

Great product, Happy customer! :)

This is a great product!! IPL/Laser hair removal isn't the nicest experience but if you've had it done before then you know what you're letting yourself in for. This easy to ease product puts you in control - no more inconvenient appointments, no more awkward undressing and no more expensive block bookings! The product is good quality, easy to use and very effective so far. I'm really looking forward to seeing the long term results in the future! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

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.
