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 !

First Time Use of Venus Silk-Expert

Having had professional laser hair removal before, I was going into this expecting some level of pain. Now having used the Venus Silk-expert, I have to say I was very surprised and felt nothing at all. To start with, I only did my lower legs. The glide feature made the whole experience very easy. I did have a few issues finding the right angle around my ankles, but I think this will come with use. Even after the first use, I did notice a difference, as the stubble did not show up for an extra day. I am really looking forward to seeing if this trend continues and improves.All that good, but I do have two complaints. One, the light is very bright and no eye protection is provided. Even when I close my eyes and look away, the flash is easily visible. It would be nice if some eye protection was provided with the system. Second, the unit did start to get hot as I was using it, not hot enough to burn, but hot enough that I turned it off to let it cool down. I don’t know if that is typical of the unit, or just happened with mine, but it could be concerning.

Impressed With Ease of Use

I received the Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert powered by Braun® for free courtesy of Braun®. I have been able to use it only a few times but I have to say that I am impressed so far. I appreciate that has a non-stop power source. I have used a hair removal device in the past that had to be charged, which I found to be inconvenient. With the Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert powered by Braun, you simply plug the device into an outlet and begin using it immediately. It is not a lightweight device, but I find it fairly easy to handle and maneuver. I really like the glide feature which I feel is perfect to treat larger areas. I have experienced a small amount of discomfort during treatments, but not enough to dissuade me from continuing treatment. I've been able to complete only a few treatments so I can't give my opinion on the effectiveness yet but I'm optimistic! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Was scared- now I see the light

Originally I was scared to try this product. After using it for a couple of weeks I am just not starting to see a slight difference. I have very dark hair so I am expecting that results will take longer than others. I am hopefully that with continual use I will start to see some major differences!

Gillette Venus Silk Expert - IPL hair removal from home!

I had first heard about IPL (intense pulsed light) on the radio from someone else who had tried it. She had dark leg hair and said she was perfect for it and it worked great! I looked it up and having this done can cost thousands of dollars, so I was not interested.When I heard that Braun made IPL devices for personal use, I thought what a great idea! They sent me one to try in exchange for an honest review. The full treatment cycle takes 12 weeks, so I have yet to see the final results but I will tell you all of my thoughts so far.The fancy packaging contains one IPL device, cords, one razor and a user manual. I read the user manual front to back before use which is very important.I learned many important things from the manual, first is that the device only works optimally on mid to light skin tones and darker shades of hair. Perfect for me, but wouldn't work for someone with very dark skin and very light hair.A few more important notes I learned is that it is not intended for use this on the face. I have a few dark hairs on my upper lip I had intended to try this on, but now I know that is a no-no! However it's perfect for women on the legs and underarms and bikini line, and even men who think they have too much back hair can give it a try as well!I was a little intimidated to use the device because of what it is. I had in my mind that it was a laser beam is be focusing on my skin and that it would be easy to hurt myself with it. However, thankfully I found it very easy to use, as easy as simply shaving! I also thought that it would be awkward to use all around my legs. The flat front of the device needs to maintain constant contact with the skin and legs are round! However I never had any issue with the device loosing proper contact. It was easy and quick! No discomfort and no negative reaction. If I see good results I would recommend this product to everyone, I am so impressed! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.]

Love my own laser hair removal!

I used this product twice on my leg so far. One time each week since I got it. Even though it's only been 2 weeks I do noticed a difference in my hair growth. The hair coming out of the leg is growing slightly slower than normal and less thick. I did not feel any pinch or any discomfort while using the laser. Because the laser is small it took a while to go over my whole leg. But overall, I'm pretty happy with this product. And I can't wait for the long term results of using it.

Great product

It took some time getting use to the feeling of using the product, but it is not bad and I feel the results are great. Don't be nervous about this product, I have heard people say they are worried it is going to hurt, it's not that bad and the results are worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great for People Who Experience Razor Irritation

I suffer from eczema, so shaving is always an annoyance, especially in the winter when my skin is extra dry. Typically, i end up with dry, irritated skin that's flaky/ashy and easily cuts, so I end up with a little red stripes decorating my legs. Using the Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert powered by Braun® a much more enjoyable experience and definitely has reduced the irritation of dry, flaky, and cut up legs after shaving. I can now go at least an extra day or two between shaves, and my hair seems to grow back slightly thinner each time. My legs are MUCH nicer and smoother to the touch. I'm really looking forwards to using the Silk-expert over the winter, when I typically "hibernate" from shaving due to irritation and discomfort. I would recommend this produce to anyone who has issues with sensitivity or suffers from razor irritation, or just wants an easier and more effective way to shave.I receive this product for free from Braun, in exhange for my honest review.
