Not satisfied

I was very excited to get this as a gift!!! I hate shaving and always wanted to do laser. Unfortunately I either got a dud or it just doesn't work :-/ I was really hopeful for this product! I didn't even keep it

No, I do not recommend this product.

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 !

Surprisingly Easy To Use

I was very excited to try the Gillette Venus Silk-expert as I have been contemplating getting professional laser hair removal.Upon opening the box, the product was packaged neatly and will enable me to store the product effectively in the future. The directions on how to use the product and any cautionary items were thorough.Preparing the area prior to using the product was extermely easy and you can utilize the included razor. The product is lightweight and has a sensor that helps you know if you have applied the device to your skin correctly. By clicking a button, the device then flashes a pulse of light. Once it does that, you can move it to the next section of your skin and repeat. I do understand that this will take several weeks to completely remove all of the hair or inhibit the hair growth. I am looking forward to the next few weeks of using the product and seeing the results.

It works really well!

I've been using the Silk-expert for 8 weeks now and have seen dramatic results! The main areas that I've used it on are my legs, underarms, and bikini area. After 4 weeks, I already saw a dramatic decline in hair growth. I barely have to shave before using it. I also made sure to use it once a week, as per the instructions. At the beginning, I definitely felt a bit of a sting when using it, but after a few weeks, I don't feel any discomfort. All in all, I would highly recommend this product. I received this product from Braun for my honest opinion. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Works like a charm!

I think that the new Gillette Venus Silk-expert is amazing! It's easy to use. It is ready to go the second that you plug it in. You can easily sit on your couch, in a chair, or any where that you are comfortable to use this amazing tool! I used it for the first time the day after I shaved. I ran it down my lower leg and it didn't hurt to use. You might get a bit uncomfortable on sensitive skin. I used this tool on both of my lower legs, bikini area, and underarms. The most uncomfortable would have been my bikini area. I would want to know what to expect from someone that has already used it prior to purchasing. I believe that this is an amazing product and I have already recommended it to all my friends and family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This skeptic is a believer!!

I'm not one to usually write reviews but seriously, this Venus Silk Expert has been amazing!! I've only used it for 4 weeks now so can't comment too much on the lasting results but so far I'm more than pleased!! I've only used the Silk Expert on one leg so far so I had a good comparison and could see if I noticed any difference. Oh yeh... huge difference! The right leg is much more sparse and bare in some places. I think 4 more treatments and I should be hair free! I also used this on my chin hairs (gotta love having kids!) and I haven't had to pluck but maybe 5 in 2 weeks!! Super excited about that! I read some reviews saying it's painful.. I don't feel it is at all... the back of my leg behind my knee was probably the most sensitive but I wouldn't call it painful. I'll update this review after a couple more weeks but I couldn't be happier with the results so far!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Crazy Sloth hair be gone!!

My ratings go up every week. They obviously cannot go any higher. Such an awesome hair removal tool. Last week and this week I have not shaved. My favorite part is that the hair falls out no matter the length! The directions say to be hairless when you start. But I was lazy. I love showing my friends how easy and painless the entire process is. And now how you don't really need to be hairless though it may be better if you are!

Kind of a let down

I was so excited for this. I think I told everyone I know about this. I finally got it, the directions werent the best. I have been using it for five weeks and I havent noticed a difference yet. I have only been using it on my armpits, but I am pretty disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Awesome sauce!

I absolutely love this device. Doesn't hurt at all. Just make sure to shave very well and don't miss any hairs. It's really easy to use. The design makes it easy to hold while gliding it up your leg. it really seems to work. Used it last week and None of my hair has not grown back yet! I received this free from Braun.

Permanent hair removal

Venus razor to ensure I get a close shave prior to treatment! The product has a "quick" mode that you can use to glide over larger areas (like my legs), and a more targeted mode to use for smaller areas (like bikini area or underarms). I am very excited to start seeing results soon... supposedly within 3 months... I'm only a month into treatment so far.I received this product to review for free from Braun as a BzzAgent. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
