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 !

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 !

So far so good

I have just tried my new IPL machine for the first time I found the cord sometimes got in the way but other than that the machine is very quite all you can hear is the fan going which is not at all noisy and the click each time the light pulses. I didn't really feel anything when the light pulsed just evey now and then the was a slight pinching sensation which again didn't bother me and didn't feel at all uncomfortable. As this is only the first time using I have no results as yet but I will be writing another review in a week or so after more usage but so far so good.

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.]

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.]

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!

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.]

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.]

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.]
