Highly recommended

I am 29..a breastfeeding mom(its safe) with fair color and dark thick hairs covering face and overall body..not just legs and hands..even on feets..i knew even i spend everything on my ipl treatment i wont be able to satisfy from all the areas of my body covering hairs..so few years ago just after 5 treatment i gave up..because it was expensive..then i got this product..then i realized its exactly what i needed..it looks quiet stylish product just by looks..easy grip..one time investment but WHAT A GREAT RESULT..just after 3rd time use i realized my hairs growth became veryyy slow..and they were not even growing from all the areas where they used to grow..its been one week since i shaved..and i dont need to shave now..otherwise i was such a hairy person who needed shave every other day..its very easy to use..hardly takes 15 min to do my legs arms face under arms tummy...as i said my hairs are thick and dark color so might absorb more light thats why i need to set EXTRA GENTLE mode where hairs are thick...i cannot explain how much my life has become easy..wax made loads of mess and very time consuming..and shaving had temporary result...thanks to braun for such product which is very conveinent to use and has great result

This is the most effective hair reduction method!

I was dubious at first as never tried IPL, with years of waxing and threading, I tried this and it is amazing! After the second attempt I saw a significant reduced hair growth, in my previous hair removing methods the growth would start after a few days. In using Braun IPL after two weeks there was slight growth and hair was much thinner. Please read the instructions and use the product properly on the settings that suit you as then it will work effectively, remember everyone's hair growth is different! In due time the hair will stop growing as the lasers reduce the growth in the follicles.Very pleased with this! No more waxing or threading!

Yes, I recommend this product !

Amazing IPL device salon quality brought home!!

The Braun IPL Silk Expert Pro 5 PL 5014 is such an amazing bit of kit, it has revolutionised my hair removal regime. From as earliest I can remember having very dark hair and mediteranean skin fighting the fuzz from puberty has always been an expensive and obsessive battle ... but not no more the product is a gift from gods!! At first I was anxious, and worried the intense pulse light would be excrutiating and that i would be sat arched over the toilet for hours trying to rid the 'forest' of hairs that sprout back after 5 minutes of shaving - but not that wasnt the case!! The intense pulse light was not one bit painful for the low pain thresholds amongst us id say a slight tingle at most! and I pretty much finished my whole body in less than 35 minutes on my first attempt ! result from a novice who just had to read the easy to follow instructions once - no war and peice manual here thankgod !! in the privacy of my own bedroom and without the beauty salon bills x 5. Coming on the 6 th week of using this product and let me tell you sceptics please sit down- I have only shaved my legs 3 times in the period - whereby the hir on regrowth is considerable slow and lethargic on returning and less coarse, the sensoadapt really works - i have darker areas of skin due to melanin clusters and many a holiday missed sun protection areas and the ipl picks this up contiuously through the treatment - so very impressed !! it feels like i can trust what it is doing without too much worry!! An added bonus is that it has fixed unsightly in growing hairs which i was plagued with after constant shaving - and reduced scarring due to this!!! because of this product I am looking forward to a hairless summer !! Really impressed by the product, i will not be retruning to the salon for endless painful waxing , threading shaving laser treatments- this is my firm favourite and cannot recommend enough!

Yes, I recommend this product !

I've been using this product for over a month now, and I'm surprised by how well it works! I have dark hair and fair skin, and in the past I tried all the methods I could get my hands on, in order to get rid of my body and face hair. Nothing worked, hair would come back same as before. I was hesitant to try this, but I'm glad I did. On the areas which I used it on, hair growth is now minimum or has stopped. I have tried it on my face (mustache area), arms, tummy, and legs. I did not feel any pain, the sensation was more like touching a mildly hot radiator, so not unpleasant. The light does take me by surprise, as it's not continuous, rather the machine checks and adjusts per area, which I find extremely smart and useful. There was no irritation on my skin after the treatment, even on my face, which will react to everything. Needless to say I love this product, as it works great, and adjusts on you. I'd recommend it to anyone, well worth its money!

Easy-user friendly, excellent results

I am very impressed by this IPL. This is a lot smaller and lighter than my other devices, and a bit more user friendly. It has an app where you can follow your treatments which is fantastic because it gives you reminders of when to do your next one, which has been great. The package is impressive, i like the fact that it comes with a razor to get you started, plus a great sturdy pouch to keep everything in. The product also comes with a 2-3 pin continental/uk plug, thank you Braun, This means that not only could i use it straight away, i can also take it on holiday with me. So in use. It’s very easy to use, I love how it reads the skin and just zap away the unwanted hair. Best used in sunlight. I also liked how it can be used on the lower face areas just need to practice more, especially upper lip area. I have definitely noticed the difference especially on my arms have no hairs, will keep using it saves so much time in the long run Overall i am extremely impressed with this, it does show visible results, but you do have to do it every 2 weeks to maintain it and stop the hair growing back.

Yes, I recommend this product !

MUST HAVE for hair removal!

Ever since I was young, I have struggled with thicker than average hair on my body and face. It always made me feel conscious so I shaved it off as soon as I was old enough to, which always irritated my skin. I knew at some point I wanted some more permanent hair removal but was unsure of what method would be best. However using the Braun Silk expert 5 has changed my life. In terms of appearance, it arrives in an amazing quality pouch which looks relatively small but holds all the essentials easily. It also arrived with a gilette razor so you can get started straight away. The machine itself has a sleek white and rose gold finish. It is the perfect size and weight to hold in your hand and use with ease. The Silk expert 5 has 10 intensity settings and 3 modes of comfort – normal, gentle and extra gentle. I have owned the IPL machine for 4-5 weeks and carried out 4 treatments in this time. It is advised to use the app which can let you know when to carry out your treatment. I expected it to be painful however I was pleasantly surprised. Even on the higher mode, you can feel the warmth but no pain whatsoever! The fast IPL system means it is so easy to glide whilst carrying out the treatment. It took me just a few minutes to carry out the treatment on both legs. I found that the advantages for me were:- - Super quick to use - Lightweight and easy to hold - Extremely effective results - Long lasting results - Almost pain free - Able to carry out treatments in comfort of my own home depending on my own availability I would definitely recommend this IPL machine as it had changed my life. However the only disadvantage is that as it does not arrive with the smaller precision head (which is compatible), it would be amazing to be able to purchase this for use on smaller areas. The standard head is amazing for use all over the body. However smaller places like the upper lip were a bit difficult to treat, It still works but I found I had missed certain small sections. Overall, I am extremely impressed and I am so glad I do not have to suffer through the pain of waxing or the discomfort of shaving ever again. I would like to clarify that I received this product in exchange for an honest and an unbiased review. This has in no way impacted the amazing results I have seen!

Yes, I recommend this product !

It has given me back my self esteem

Let me start by saying I have PCOS which means that I have more hair than most women and it’s darker and thicker too, all over my face and body. I was given this product to try as a member of Savvy circle although I was saving for one anyway. This is the safest and fastest IPL device on the market for women, and men too.I couldn’t wait for my product to arrive and when it did I unpacked it right away, it comes in a lovely bag and contains the I’ll itself, a Venus smoothest razor. You still have to shave before using it but don’t use any products such as moisturiser or deodorant. I started using it at the extra gentle setting just to get used to it. I have the perfect compatibility meaning I have fair skin and dark hair. It fit perfectly in my hand when doing most of the areas however was quick tricky reaching the button when doing my underarms. I didn’t feel a thing with the first two settings and the last setting feels, to me like an elastic band pinging of me. The stamp method takes a little longer and the glide method is so quick for doing legs and thighs. I have used this weekly with the app to keep track and remind me, and to say I am amazed is an understatement. Having PCOS had left me with no confidence as I had hair on my face I had to shave twice a day and I was always scared of getting near anyone incase they noticed the stubble or red razor bumps. While it hasn’t cleared up totally there are far fewer hairs already after 4 weeks and my arms and underarms are almost completely bald. I’ve noticed that instead of shaving my legs every day I only need to do it every 2 or 3 days. Everyone who knows me has remarked on the change on me I have become a different person thanks to this machine, it has given me my life back. I will need to keep doing this and topping up every so often as with PCOS my hormones will mean that the hair will come back but now I have the Braun IPL I have my life back

Yes, I recommend this product !

Packaged beautifully

Brain ipl treatment - I received this kit to test out!! I have now been using it for 3 weeks! I have very dark hair so I didn’t have much faith in this at first plus I’ve only ever shaved or waxed. Been to nervous to test our LASER TREATMENT!! well this is something I’ve never experienced before! It is the ultimate pain free hair removal device beauty MUST HAVE!! It has a sensitivity button so you can slide to adjust to your skin. I used to have to shave every other day my hair grows that quick but after 3 weeks of using this I can notice the difference already the hair isn’t growing back as quick as it used to and some places it isn’t growing back at all. The laser doesn’t give of any sort of sting or tingle. And it’s so easy to use. The instructions are very detailed. I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting permanent hair removal. Also with having this you can use it on multiple areas of the body not just your legs. I love this product and will never change it. It defiantly is a beauty MUST HAVE! And don’t worry men you can use this aswell it’s not just a product for women :)

Yes, I recommend this product !

Perfect as described. Works really well!

This Braun IPL Pro 5 PL5014 device is fantastic! Very easy and painless to use. Im very pleased with the first treatment so far but I do have the ideal skin type and hair type for it to work. I have dark brown hair and light skin so the treatment is ideal for me. Great design too! I recommend it for other, it works excellent!
