Braun

Noticed a difference with two uses. Hair is much thinner and less of it. If anyone suffers with ingrown hairs this is great.

Yes, I recommend this product !

BEWARE HAIR! You've met your match!

Oh my days. It's every girls (or guys of course) dream! Imagine it, no shaving, no waxing, no rash, no bikini line, no quick dry shave...ouch! The. Hair. Is. Gone. Of course, you have to do little top ups along the way but hey! Who cares when you're that smooth :-). It's sleek and stylish, easy to use and relatively quick. Completely painless. I was disappointed to have to shave every area you treat first, but it's a small price to pay for the fabulous results. Once a week for 12 weeks initially. Top ups after that. Bish bash bosh you're done.Save a small fortune on beauty treatments, and razors! Save time in the shower or bath! Save yourself from the stubble and hairy areas!Save the world girls and guys! You're ready!It works. It's worth it. It's true! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great at home treatment

I was really excited when the Braun Silk expert 3 IPL got delivered. I could not wait to use it. I was a bit wary of it at first as I wasn't sure exactly what it would be like as I have never had any treatment using this technology before. I made sure I read the instruction booklet which made me feel more confident to use it. I was happy to see a Gillette Venus razor provided within the box, these are my favourite razors to use. After reading the booklet I plugged in the handset. I must say that for convenience it would be easier if it was cord free when being used but it didn't hinder it's performance. After a couple of goes to get it to flash I managed to get it to register my skin tone. I was surprised to not feel anything, I don't really know what I was expecting maybe some heat but I felt nothing. There is a kind of click noise when it flashes but all pain free. I found this quick and easy to use. I have only tried it on my legs as I wanted to see if it dried me out or if there was any reaction to it. I can say that there has been no adverse reaction and I am happy to begin using it on other areas of my body. This is a great way to save some money on hair removal treatments at salons. Compared to the salon prices over the year this product would be affordable and a cost saver. The handset doesn't make much noise so it wouldn't disturb other occupants of your home. I have been using it on only one leg at the mo to see if I can see a difference and a few months on and I can see a change in hair growth. I will start on the other leg now. 15 minutes once a week is all it takes for my legs so it is not a laborious task. The box it came in is fairly sturdy so is great to be used as storage and protection. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So far so good

I've had laser hair removal completed professionally before so was a little uncertain as to whether this would be any good. So far I've been pleasantly surprised.When using the Braun Silk expert IPL BD3001 it does give a little bit of a sting, it's not too bad though, more like a bit of a flick from an elastic band. I've watched some videos on how to effectively use the Device and as suggested in one, when using it on your legs it's best to section it up, I used a white eye liner as it's easy to wipe off afterwards. I then proceeded to go over each of my legs.It took about 30 mins to get them all completed.So far I have had reduced grow back and I'm hoping that after a few sessions the growth will be minimal.One thing I would sa though is that the cable is not long enough so you have to sit close to a socket when using it, a small price to pay for smooth legs though!

Braun Silk-Expert 3 IPL review

UNBOXING:In the box is the machine itself, a power cord, instruction manual and a disposable razor to get you started. The Instruction manual is VERY detailed, but uses clear language so it was easy to understand. I was slightly unnerved by all the warnings, but willing to give it a try. The booklet said that the device works best on fair skin with dark hair, which is perfect for me!FIRST USE:I decided to start on my lower legs, I shaved with the supplied disposable razor first whilst in the shower, then dried thoroughly. Then I got to work with the Braun Expert, it is easy to use, you press the button to “pulse” the light – it only works when in complete contact with your skin which can be a bit tricky to manoeuvre yourself and the device so that it sits flat of the skin so you have to press down quite hard sometimes.AFTER 7 WEEKS USE:I have been using the device once a week for 7 weeks now and I can really see a difference now. In the first few weeks I was slightly disappointed that I didn’t feel that anything had changed and I still had to shave every few days, but after week 4, the hair growth slowed down a lot. Now at week 7, I can really feel the difference – I have smooth legs with no in-grown hairs or shaving rashes! Using the device got easier after a few goes as you get used to how to hold it for maximum contact with your skin. I think that this is worth the money and I recommend this product to anyone who doesn’t have the time to mess about with shavers or wax. It really is worth persevering for those first few weeks as the results are worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So far, so good

I was not sure whether laser hair removal would work for me. I have very dark hair and my legs need shaving twice weekly. It was a pleasant surprise to find the laser was totally painless to use. It takes a while to do,both legs and I have to look away when it flashes as it's very bright, but I can honestly say that it leaves my legs silky smooth and there is definitely a much slower regrowth. I'm impressed! Definitely want to continue with it. My only negative would be that the cord is not quite long enough but I can work around it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So far, so good

So far I have used this 5 times (5 weeks) you can only use it once a week on each area. It's hard to tell if it's had an immediate effect as you first need to remove the hair by another method (i.e shaving) before you zap the skin. So with the hair already removed it's hard to tell if the IPL has 'done anything' so the only way to tell is by using the IPL once a week on a specific day (mine is Sunday) so shave legs then use straight after, then by the following Saturday look at legs and see if the hair has grown back less than the previous Saturday. This can be hard to notice as you have to remember what your legs looked like a week ago! Of course you could take a photo each week and compare the growth. My hairs probably aren't dark enough to see much difference but I would say that after the 4 week mark I did think the hair growth was less. So I will continue to use this for at least another 7 weeks because I really would like to shave legs less often. The actual product is easy to use and zapping small areas like underarms/bikini line is super quick and easy. Tackling legs seems like a long boring task... it is rather repetitive and dull but actually when timed it takes 10 minutes to do both legs and the lead is long so you could do it while watching TV. 10 minutes is actually much less time than it would take to wax or epilate... or even use hair removal cream. The flash is brighter than I would have expected so at first I used sunglasses, but then when I got used to using it I didn't need to look at the device as much, therefore the flash didn't bother me as much.
