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!

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.]

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.]

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.]

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 far so good!

I am about to start my third treatment and and so far am quite pleased with Braun IPL hair removal system. It took me a while to get to grips with the device, I felt a lot more comfortable with it on my second treatment. The flash window has to be in full contact with skin and at first I found it quite a challenge to manuvre the gadget on my legs, holding it with both hands seemed to help. It says in the instructions that the window must be cleaned between uses and I wish there was some sort of cleaning cloth included and maybe a cap to go on to the flash window to protect it whilst in storage, a stogage bage would've been handy as well.Comfort wise it was pretty good. An odd sting here and there, some more painful than others but overall quite good. Think about your eyebrow hair getting plucked - that's as bad as it gets. After treatments my skin wasn't red or sensitive all which for me is a great plus.Can't say much on the effectiveness as it's still early days for me.

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.]
