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 !

Get the job done

Easy and quick and convenient to use, I have varying skin tone, so I love that it adapts to my skin tone. Professions results on a budget, I've had IPL before so I knew what to expect and .it's been 4weeks - so far it's going really well. I also have the Braun IPL app to track my progress and give me reminders...excellent product thank you !!

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.]

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.]

Braun Smooth no other will do

I like using this exfoliator for the brush movement. It is firm and really gives a good clean. Plus it is easy to maintain and keep clean. I really thought it would cause spots but pleasantly surprised by what it has done for my skin. It looks good.

Yes, I recommend this product !

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.]

Painless process!

I've been very pleasantly surprised by how easy and painless this is to use. I have to admit, as a first time IPL'er I was nervous that it would hurt but it's pretty much painless (a slight sting every now and then that lasts barely a second is the worst it gets!).The only reason I haven't given 5 stars all round is that I haven't had enough time using it to give an opinion on how long lasting and effective this is as a long term hair removal system!

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.]

Quick, easy to use and the results are promising

I have been using this product for a month now and so far the results are good. I have fair skin and dark hair and already I have noticed that hair regrowth is slower, finer and patchy in places so I am hopeful that by the time I have completed the 12 week start up phase, I can enjoy a fuzz free summer. The device looks and feels like a quality product and it's so easy to use. Simply plug it into the mains and it's ready to go within seconds - brilliant if you're short on time, as I always seem to be! I really like the fact that the device automatically measures your skin tone and adjusts the light intensity accordingly making it much safer. The only thing that would improve this product, would be to include a travel bag for storing the device between treatments. All in all, I love how quick and easy this is to use and from the results I've seen so far, I'm very hopeful this could be the permanent hair removal solution I have been looking for.
