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!

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.]

Good product to have

Product is easy to use, although price is a bit steep for my liking.

Yes, I recommend this product !

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.]

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.

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.]

Pretty impressed!

I have used this four times now on a weekly basis. I have to say I am pretty impressed. I have noticed a difference in the regrowth already and to be honest, I thought it would take a while longer. I normally have to shave my underarms every day, but I am finding I can now leave it for a couple of days. I have noticed I huge difference in the regrowth on my legs also. I aren't quite at the monthly 'maintenance' stage, but I don't think I am far off this now. It is also effective on chin hair. I no longer have the 'sneaky ones' that tend to appear in between me checking in the mirror before leaving home, and getting to work 20 minutes later - and believe me, this is always a bonus!!! I did notice the first time I used it I did have a red itchy patch but this is no longer an issue. It also left my legs with little red dots - very similar to the effects after using an epilator but these were gone the next day. It is pain free and very easy to use - I would recommend, particularly if you pay for waxing as in the long run - or even in the short run - it is one less cost.

Excited by the results.

I've been using the Braun Silk Epil-3 for 6 weeks now on my lower legs and bikini line and the results are magnificent. I have really dark hair which grows rapidly and I need to shave at least every other day to be confident in my appearance. Since using Braun Silk Epil-3 the hair growth has slowed down and I an now able to go 4 days without shaving and the density of hair has reduced with patches already hair free! It is lightweight and easy to use. I am able to do my lower legs and bikini line in around 30 minutes. I have experienced no discomfort or irritation and would recommend for anyone with sensitive skin as I have tested in the past to agents and chemicals.

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.]

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.]
