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.

Great Product - My legs are very happy!

I was a little unsure at first about zapping my skin to slow hair regrowth, but after a few weeks of using the Braun Silk Expert 3 IPL I'm very happy. My leg hair grows very quickly however after only a couple of uses (with a recommended once a week application) I noticed a definite slow-down in re-growth. Now after a few weeks I just have a few hairs here and there grow back and I can go much longer between shaves. The product itself is very simple to use and the instruction booklet is easy to follow. A good quality razor is included which is handy as hair has to be removed before using the product. For larger areas the button on the product needs to be kept pressed down and this was a little awkward when doing my legs. As of yet it's not been as effective on my underarm hair, however as this is a sensitive area I've used the Gentle setting so far, and I'd recommend using this setting for your first application on any skin area. I've experienced no noticeable side-effects, my underarms felt a little hot during application but this faded in an instant. Once switched on the product is ready to use straight away and the power cord is a very good length. I'm very happy so far and will continue to use the Silk Expert, now all I have to do is wait for the good weather so I can get my legs out... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk Expert 3

I was impressed with the Gillette Venus razor, it gave a very good shave without any nicks or cuts. I was initially nervous using the Braun Silk Expert 3, as it looks so technilogical. However, It is very easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow. I would consider switching from my usual hair removal product to Braun Silk Expert 3 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Finally! Long lasting smooth

I am in love with the Braun Silk expert 3 IPL. I have been waxing and epilating for all my years, and, whilst these leave you with smooth-ish, largely hair free skin for longer than shaving, over time, due to ingrown hairs, and the growth cycle of each hair, you end up having to do it weekly come summer. Whilst I don't have stubble, I do have to spend far too much time removing hair. With the Braun IPL, I don't have to do this any more . I initially used the Gillette Venus razor before using the IPL, and we didn't get along so well, but after some research, I learned that waxing or epilating is sufficient, and then went at it once a week. It's only been a short while, and I'm already up to every other week, and every three weeks isn't long away. An amazing product, which is saving me both time and money in the long run.

Not suitable for use on moles

I was so excited when I received the Braun Silk Expert 3IPL: I have used Braun hair removal products for years (Silkepil, for instance), and trust them implicitly. Unfortunately, I was bitterly disappointed by this product, as it is completely unsuitable for me, as I have a large amount of moles all over my legs and arms. It clearly states in the instructions, once you open the packet, that you should not use it if you have moles, as it may cause serious harm. I wish I was asked a question about moles in advance, as I would have never selected this product. I have therefore given it to my friend to use it instead, as she has no moles and a fair skin (the Braun Silk Expert is also unsuitable for dark skins, but this is clearly stated on the packaging). My friend LOVES it: she says that the results are really visible 4 weeks in, and she is now using it to maintain rather than to stop the hair from growing. Basically, great product, but should come with a warning about moles!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Best at-home beauty product you can buy

I've been wanting to try this product for years now but I never knew if I could justify the purchase... I now wish I'd had it a long time ago!I've only been using this for about 4 weeks now, rather than the whole recommended 12 weeks, but wow can I see results already. You need to make sure you shave the areas you'd like to use it on before, and then away you go. It reads your skin tone automatically so you don't get burned (it honestly doesn't hurt AT ALL), but there's also a Gentle mode for bikini lines and armpits (use it!)I've been using mine on my lower legs, bikini line, face and armpits now and after just two weekly treatments I noticed a huge difference in regrowth and the thickness of the hair growing back. It takes around 30 minutes to do everything in one session, but it's worth it for the results.I am hoping the results continue to improve, as I've been shouting loud about this!

Braun silk expert 3 ipl

I couldn't wait to use the Braun silk expert 3 . After reading the instructions which are easy to understand i was ready to go . I like how it reads your skin tone and adapts accordingly. I was a but concerned about the red flash . But I just looked away. It took me about 15 minutes to do both legs and I've noticed a difference after 3 weeks . I haven't noticed much of a difference with my armpits . But will continue to use it on them . I personally love this and will continue to use it and I've recommend it to my friends [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.]

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.]
