Get the job done

Easy and quick and convenient to use, I have varying skin tone, so I love that it adapts to my skin tone. Professions results on a budget, I've had IPL before so I knew what to expect and .it's been 4weeks - so far it's going really well. I also have the Braun IPL app to track my progress and give me reminders...excellent product thank you !!

Yes, I recommend this product !

Easy to use and painfree!

So far I have had no issues what so ever using this product. It's easy to use and I haven't experienced any pain at all. I haven't really seen much of a result so far (using it for 1 month), but I think that is to be expected. I will definately continue to use it and hopefully see some results soon.

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.

Easy to use IPL

The IPL looks and feels really good quality, it is quite lightweight and easy to hold. The shape allows me to see the area I am treating clearly, and the slim head makes it easy to manoeuvre and avoid any moles or freckles. It takes me about 10 - 15 minutes in total to do both of my lower legs, and it takes less than a minute to do both underarms.My skin is pale so the light intensity is at the highest level. Most of the time I can't feel anything when I use it on my legs but just occasionally I get a flash that feels a bit snappy, I would not describe it as painful though. I use the gentle mode on my underarms, the light feels hot but it does not hurt.Pros- Painfree- Easy to use- Automatic intensity adjustment- Sensitive mode- Precise head- Fast treatment time- 2 year guaranteeCons- Results not guaranteed- It could take up to 24 months to see results- Limited device lifetime of 120,000 flashes- Power cord can pull out of device too easily [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!

So far, so good!

I've used this device for 3 weeks and I can honestly say that the hair that's growing by back is patchy. My hair is super stubborn so I think it will take the full 12 weeks for me to see perfect results but I am very pleased with the progress. It's so easy to use, you just plug in and go. I feel no pain at all on my legs but I do feel an electric shock after each pulse of light when doing under my arms. Not unpleasant enough to stop though. Il Update the review on the results after I've used it a few more times [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

First thoughts.

I was all worked up for some kind of pain. There was non. Non at all. I have only used a few times so I cannot comment on the effectiveness just yet. I am currently using the device weekly for the initial start up period after that you change to monthly. The ease of use is good I first found parts of my legs tricky but I am getting there with it. The laser will only go off if the sensors on both sides are on your legs. It adapts to your skin tone. You shave as normal (If waxing you wax and the carry the process out a few days later). I would recommend if you fit the products requirements best checked before buying as some skin/ hair combinations are not able to use. I have never used something like this before but always wondered what it would be like. If that's you I would say give it a go if you have the chance you may be impressed.

Awesomely easy to use

I have really enjoyed trying out this new product - it's super easy to use, just hold it against your skin until the lights flash green and press the button.The movement is so much like shaving that it feels really natural, just go slowly and keep your finger on the button to get the IPL to work.It doesn't hurt at all, and in just 2 weeks, I'm noticing a difference. I'll keep you posted if the hair is permanently gone!My only complaint is that I think a pair of glasses would help, as it's tricky to ensure the lights stay green while looking away from the light! Especially around tricky areas like ankles. Otherwise, I love it" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Part 1

I was really pleased to be able to try out this device. My initial thoughts were 'wow its small' as I had seen other home devices attached to a base whereas this is just a handheld device that you plug into the wall. All you do is switch it on and you're good to go, no charging time and the cable is a good length. It is so simple to use and having had a test patch done at a salon I was aware of the ouch factor so tried it on 'sensitive' first - all you need to do is press the button on the top of the device and then press again when you want it off. I didn't feel a thing with it on although I was surprised by how bright the flash is - the manual does say to look away and I was glad I followed this instruction. I then tried it on 'full power' and again was surprised when I didn't feel anything on my legs, although I have epilated in the past so this probably helps.
