Not Sure

I really want to try this out, but I'm just not sure if it'll work on me. I'm mixed with black and white and have a light skin tone. I was wondering if anyone knew of someplace I could get a trial. I absolutely hate hair anywhere except my head!

Yes, I recommend this product !

For hair that isn't corse.....

I have not had a lot of change in my hair growth but that could be due to the corse hair that I have. There are requirements for this product. I think it would work well for someone that has hair that isn't corse and light skin. My hair is thinning a bit though so I will be continuing to use this product to see if I have more of a result. By the way, you do have to have a clean shave on the area BEFORE you use this product. I received this product free from Braun to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Lightweight and easy to use!

Out of all my Bzz campaigns I have to say I was most excited about trying out the new Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert. Both Gillette and Braun are top companies in their field and they came together to form a new at home laser hair removal product. The silk-expert came in a beautifully packaged boxed. I immediately opened it and read all the instruction. I was excited to see that I fit perfectly into the ideal person for use (light skin with dark hair). The silk-expert, although a little large, fit nicely into my hand and was extremely light weight. I have used other at home laser hair removal devices in the past and I felt this was much easier to use, mostly because of the weight and the fact that there are two methods you can use (glide or sectional). The glide motion is ideal for larger areas such as legs. Previously, when I used an at home hair laser removal I would forget if I had done a section and sometimes re-treat it. I also love the fact that it has a "sensitive" mode - which if you're scared (like me) at first to use, it is a nice way to ease you into the product. I decided to test the product Braun had provided me with in my underarm area. Although I was hesitant to initiate the first treatment, I have to say it went smoothly. After the first "zap" I was well on my way to treating both underarm areas. The only issue I felt was with the size of the silk-expert head. I am on the petite side and the head sometimes was larger than the area I was working on so I had to maneuver it or my arm in strange ways for both sensors to allow activation. I use the silk-expert on sensitive mode the first time and felt no pain, only a warm sensation afterward. I also think I may have missed a patch of hair while shaving because after one activation I smelled burnt hair, which didn't alarm me at all because I had read this was normal. Another great feature is the fan that turns on when the light is activated, I personally felt this reduced the intensity conveyed on my skin. The technology Braun and Gillette came up with is also incredible. The silk-expert automatically detects the intensity it needs to successfully target the hair follicle to prevent growth. I can't wait to see the progress of the Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert through the weeks and report back! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Fantastic Product!! I'm in love

I love the way my legs look after using the Gillette Venus Silk-Expert!! It is so easy to use and the results are just WOW!!! It reaches behind my legs with ease. It is not heavy to hold and I am blown away by the results. Even my friends have noticed how smooth my legs look. This will be on the top of my list for Christmas presents for my closest girlfriends. Thank you for allowing me to try this wonderful product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Super Easy

I'm excited to see how this all works out. I did the test area and then 24 hrs later I used the silk-expert on my lower legs. It was super easy to use and I did not feel a lot of pain. I know that other areas may be more sensitive, but I'm going to see how my legs work out first.The only complaint that I have is that the instruction booklet is a little hard to follow. I remember reading through bzzagent that I should not use the silk-expert more than once a week on a single location, but the instruction booklet does not say this. If once a week is a requirement, that should be clearly stated in the instruction booklet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Interesting at home hair removal process

So, overall what an interesting tool but I will be honest. It is time consuming, but you can see progress so that is awesome. As a parent of 8 kiddos (bios and fosters) I don't always have time to myself. It takes time to do the light process, but if you have the time and money then it is a great product to own. I have seen results and less hairs. I might try my armpits and bikini area next. Even during the winter I can be mostly fuzzy free! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Impressive!

I was a bit worried about trying the Venus silk expert after reading some online reviews. So I was very surprised when the process was painless for me. Not irritation or redness at all! After using it for several weeks I've definitely noticed a difference in hair growth. There hair seems slower to grow back in and there is less of it. It is a pretty quick and simple process once you get the hang of it. Some areas are a bit trickier than others. I only have minor trouble keeping track of where I've done but, that has gotten easier each time. I'm pretty sure I missed spots at first since there is several cautions about not doing the same area twice in the same treatment. I would recommend anyone looking to spend less time shaving or wanting to avoid those ugly red bumps after shaving to give this a try! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So far, so good

So far, so good on the intense pulse light. I thought that the install was easy and the directions were complete and easy to read and understand. I do wish that it gave an exact usage time. The directions say weekly. I wish I knew that for it to really work you need to use it 1x or 2x, etc a week. The first time I used it I realized that your skin needs to be COMPLETLY dry, mine wasn't and I got a little zap. The user also needs to make sure the area of free of hair. The glide motion for your legs is great. The life span to see if it works is 3 months, which is a little long but I am excited to see if it works. The act of doing the pulsing to prevent hair regrowth is about the same time as shaving.

Week 4 - Trial continues

So far it's been 5 treatments and 4 weeks and perhaps placebo, but I'm thinking it may have results. Would I say "amazing" results, no, but I would say willing to take the 12 week challenge like their research stated. I will say that I am a firm believer in the Venus disposable razor now though! That has held up at least 6 uses and still as good as the first time. Jury is still out but not turning back yet! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
