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 !

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.

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.]

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.]

Slow and Steady

It's so difficult as a busy working parent to find time to shave! I was given the opportunity to test the Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert for free. This product removes unwanted hair using UV light, similar to going for hair removal treatments. I was excited to try this product as it's from Braun but also was skeptical how well it would work. Surprisingly it works well but does take a lot of time. The first time I used it I went fast and missed a lot of places. The second time I used it I went much slower to hit more areas which seemed to work better. I did notice some issues like knowing where you already hit or missed. You also need to make sure you have good contact with the skin, which is why going slow is important. Under arms and legs contain many hard areas to hit (knees, ankles, ect) so it's hard to make sure you hit the spot. Third, it's hard to see what you're doing when you shouldn't look at the bright light. Relax, catch up in some of your shows and take your time and you'll get good results! Such a cool product to be able to get professional treatment at home. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Pleasantly surprised

I received a Gillette Venus silk effect by braun, free in exchange for a fair review. I started out using the device on one leg so that I could compare it with the other leg for a fair comparison. When I initially started using the device my legs stayed red for several hours, mostly due to my sensitive skin. But now I no longer react. My hair on my leg has drastically changed. Going from corse and thick to barely noticeable. My 5 o'clock leg shadow is no longer and issue. Very thankful to have tried this new product. Thank you braun [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Seems to be working

I have been using this product for about 3 weeks and 3 separate times. I can see less hair growth. I've noticed it particularly on my knuckles. I'm newly engaged so I have been paying a lot more attention to my hands lately and so has everyone else. I have been extra paranoid about them looking hairy.

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!

Love this!

I didn't know what I was missing. I've been using this for over 6 weeks now and hardly shave at all anymore. The hair is pretty much gone. A few touch ups now and then, but WOW! I would recommend this to anyone who ever thought of laser hair removal, and those who never thought about it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
