Better than those expensive sessions.

Value is 5 because I think it is more cost effective than those expensive sessions. Quality is 5 because the product and package does feel like a premium product. After 3 weeks, once per week, doing on my groin, I believe I am already see the difference. And it is impressive result comparing to the 8 expensive sessions I had years ago on my groin. To newcomer, yes it hurts, and no, it won't hurt as much as those expensive sessions because you can stop it without feeling embarrassed that you cry like a baby. VERY IMPORTANT! First I only flash once all over my groin to build my pain tolerance. Then, I do double flash over the same area again. I am already seeing result that is better than my expectations. Do not recommend to do triple flash and burn yourself (unless it doesn't really hurt you). The product is designed to burn the hair follicles, not your skins. You want to do this weekly, instead of waiting for skin to heal due to over flashing. This is where the difference between the clinic visit and doing it yourself. They burn a lot in one session and requires you to wait for the whole month to recover, aside from hair growth cycle. When you do it yourself, you burn less and do it more often. Just take your time. Flash once, felt hurt a bit, rest few seconds until you are ready. No need to torture yourself, there is no rush.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Maybe 50% reduction after 12+ uses

I bought this product quite hesitantly as it is not cheap and most reviewers had only waited a few treatments to share their experience. I'm at treatment 14 currently, having used this once a week, about half an hour each treatment. I still definitely need to shave as about half the original amount of hair still grows. These results haven't changed noticeably since about week 7-8. The skin does feel less prickly as a result of reduced hair growth, which is currently the main benefit I've experienced after roughly seven hours spent on use, with no end to needing weekly treatments in sight. Unfortunately I definitely can't give a rave review.

No, I do not recommend this product.

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 worth it!

I have been using this for a few weeks and I have to say that I noticed a decrease in my hairs immediately! This is a fantastic product, very easy to use and completely pain free so far. I did feel some heat when using in the underarm region however the instructions said this was to be expected and that you can reduce the strength when using in "sensitive" areas. I would say ready the instructions very carefully before proceeding as there a few things to keep in mind but after that it was a breeze to use. I usually get this done during my toddlers nap as it is completely noise free and very quick to do! I would absolutely recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Very Happy!

Having quite coarse, dark hair, I went into this feeling a bit skeptical but I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised.The box has everything that you need: the machine, the power cord, a Gillette Venus razor and a comprehensive set of easy to understand instruction. The box is solid so it can be used to store the device away easily when not in use.I have been using the Braun Silk expert 3 IPL machine for approximately 9 weeks now (on my legs) and am seeing really good results. While I still have hairs growing back on my legs, the hairs are much finer, fewer in quantity and a whole lot less visible. To put it into context, rather than having to shave everyday as I previously would have done, I'm now down to shaving once a week and could probably get away with less than that if I wasn't so squeamish about being able to feel the regrowth.The product isn't perfect. I have a petite build and found myself having to try holding the device at some strange angles in order to maintain full contact with my skin. Once I had mastered the art of that, I was good to go.There was a small amount of discomfort as I used the device, no more than a feeling of warmth and pinpricks but enough to make me wince on a couple of occasions.The other thing to bear in mind is that the area to be treated needs to be completely free of hair or you will get that horrid smell of burning hair.Overall, I am really happy with my experience of using this product and would wholeheartedly recommend it if you are considering it. My next plan is to give it a go on my underarms and bikini area (as soon as I pluck up the courage!) in the hopes that the results will be just as good.

Less chewbacca and more silkly goddess

As it is fast approaching that time of year where my milky white pins need to see daylight, I was keen to explore a more lasting approach to hair removal.The Braun Silk-expert 3 IPL hair removal system seemed like the solution; safe, effective permanent hair removal is what it promises.What I didn't know before I started using my Silk-expert is that skin tone and body hair type can mean that an IPL is not always affective. On the side of the box is a really useful colour chart which I found really helpful. With my medium skin tone and dark hair, this product would work for me. During a treatment of any given area, the wand will read your skin tone and adapt the light intensity to ensure efficiency and safety. IPL can be used on legs, pits, face, bikini line and for the boys, backs and chests too.The Silk-expert works beneath the skins surface by targeting the melanin in the hair, helping break the cycle of hair growth. It can take up to 12 weeks during the start-up phase (although some can see the effects after only four treatments). Before treatments, it's important to remove all visible hair (that is why the Venus razor is included within the box), and any lotions or potions you may have on your skin. Once you've prepared, it's time to plug in the Silk-expert and glide it over the chosen area. At first this was hit and miss as I wasn't sure how quickly I should glide the wand up and down my legs, I soon got the hang of it and found it really quick and easy to use. I experienced no pain or redness even after my first treatment. Unfortunately my stubourn hair decided it wanted to continue growing after the first four weeks, but 9 weeks in I've seen a huge improvement. My leg hairs are sparse and I'm hopeful with the last few treatments my Silk-expert will have done 'what it said on the tin', my armpit hair is more of less gone and I'll only need the maintenance treatments once a month or so.Easy to use, no mess, and more importantly no pain and a summer of beautifully silky legs. The only reason it's not got the five stars is that its not an overnight fix and you do need to preserver. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

No more waxing!

So I got my Braun Silk Expert 3 IPL. First impressions are that I love the packaging! I'm a bit of a sucker for anything purple to be honest! In the box you get your IPL, the Gillette Venus Razor and the power cord. I always use Gillette Venus Razors as I find them the best on the market anyway. The instruction booklet is included also and once you get a full read through you realise it is really easy to use. The one thing I did want to check was that I could use it as I am pregnant. Unless I didn't read it thoroughly enough (!!) there is no metntion of me not being able to use it when pregnant. But there is also nothing to say I can, so maybe this could be added?? I took advice from a friend in the maternity field and she said it should be ok. I'm usually a shave and go girl, and usually miss a few patches in the process, but for my first use I shaved off all the unwanted hair and started the using the device. I am fair skinned with quite coarse dark hair. So this device should be perfect for me! For the first few uses I found the device including the cord quite fiddly, but once I had used it a few times it came naturally and became part of my routine. I was slightly disappointed in the first couple of weeks. I usually go for a wax every 5-6 weeks in different areas and was tempted just to let the hair grow out to get it waxed again but wanted to leave it for about 6 weeks and see how the device faired. It is quite warm in the skin, which is quite good because it makes you feel that it is working. After about 4 weeks I started to see small results. The hair appeared to be growing back slightly less thickly and there appeared to be less of it. After 6 weeks use I was convinced that it was working! My regrowth definitely feels less, especially on my lower leg. My underarms are a work in progress as I knew they would be!! I think it may take another few weeks there to show big results. I haven't been back for my waxing and don't plan to any time soon! I feel the device is well worth it for the money. It's just part of my routine now and I'm happy to recommend it to friends and family! Going forward I think it would be great to have a similar device for the face, as this can't be used in this area. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
