Oh my my my!

This is a holy grail product! It does what it claims, STOPS the hair regrowth. I have moved from Laser to IPL to be more cost effective, still does the same job. Value for money as it is one off investment.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Fabulous Product

This IPL is brilliant, I have been using it for five weeks now and have already started to see results. It is really simple to use and comes with a smaller window attachment too. It has a nice long power cable to give you plenty of movement and comes with three settings, I started on the middle setting and found this adequate enough, it is painless, easy to use and hold and a very effective way of hair removal. It comes with a lovely travel pouch and a venus razor, to shave before you use. I would recommend this great product.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Amazing at reducing hair growth

I have always just shaved and this becomes a chore when it has to be done every so often. Brain machine has reduced the times I have to do this over the weeks. It’s a very easy and pain free way to get rid of hair long term. I have thoroughly enjoyed using it and it is honestly worth every penny if you are looking for long term results.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Changed my life!

I am so happy this device has changed my hair removal routine and has made my life much easier. After the first 2 weeks of using this product I noticed the hair regrowth much thinner, I am now on week 4 and will continue to use this product and I already can see a huge difference so I am expecting that soon I will have no need to use hair removal products ever again. The device is super easy to use and the treatments themselves aren't painful. I started using the low intensity and worked my way up to the high intensity treatment. With time, your pain threshold will increase and the majority of the time you wont feel any discomfort.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Great results in just four weeks.

I've been using the Silk-expert Pro 5 for four weeks and I love it! I have used it once a week like instructed and I am now only having to shave once a week, compared to every 2-3 days before. I really like the continued use feature where you can just roll it up your leg and it adjusts to how fast you drag it. I has three sensitivty setting great for those more delicate areas. The cable is long and heats up quickly. With the summer coming I am looking forward to the results as I continue with the program. The only thing I don't like is the app, to me its pointless but it isn't bad.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Actually works

Had been thinking about trying this out for a while but because of the mixed reviews I wasn’t sure, I’m glad I was able to trial it out with supersavvy. In the summer I have to shave my legs every other day which is annoying, but after using this for 4 weeks I now only have to shave 1 a week and hopefully it will reduce with continued use. To begin with I had to find the right mode for me I went for normal but then reduced it to gentle because it irritated my skin a little, I suggest anyone new to the product do the The irritation went way with some aloe Vera and after reducing it to gentle didn’t get it anymore.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Silk-expert Pro 5 Finally a product that works

I have PCOS and one of the side effects is excessive hair growth. This is something I have really struggled with over the years and have pretty much tried every single form of hair removal with limited or no results. I decided to try out the Braun Pro 5 and have mainly focused on facial hair. The pro 5 arrived the bag it comes in is really nice good quality and stylish inside the bag I found the Pro 5 device with both the standard attachment and the precision attachment which is more suited to some areas of the face such as upper lip and chin area as I found the standard attachment couldn’t get to these areas properly. There was the instruction manual a Venus Extra Smooth razor and the power cable. Make sure you read the instruction manual, I found this easy to read. After reading through the instructions I started to do a patch test; The pro 5 has three intensity settings which you need to test to find out which suits the skin area you are wanting to treat I did this on my cheek and then left it for 24 hours to make sure I had to adverse effects. After 24 hours I started my treatment; The device has a sensor to make sure it is fully in contact with the skin this is shown by a strip of lights on each side of the device the lights will be red if there is no contact and the machine won’t work, Once in contact with the skin the light will turn green and will begin to work I used mine on the middle setting on my cheeks and neck then I used the precision attachment on the highest setting in my top lip and chin. Depending on the level you choose the unit will adjust the speed of each pulse with the higher heat setting being the slowest and the lowest heat is faster. If you keep the button held the unit with continuously flash or you can press it once at a time, you choose whichever you feel more comfortable with. This is now my fifth week of using the product and the results have been amazing. Because my hair growth is caused by a hormonal imbalance I assumed it would take much longer to see any kind of difference however I have patches on both my cheeks and neck that are smooth and I haven’t noticed further hair growth in these areas. Everywhere else the hair growth is much slower and the hair is becoming more sparse. I will continue to use this product once a week and expect even more amazing results. I finally feel more confident I truly cannot recommend this product enough and am excited to see what happens.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Great price and easy to use!

I was very wary of a product that claims to help after just 4 short weeks but I have been slightly surprised! I have noticed a slight improvement of the re-growth on my legs, before it would grow back thick within a matter of days however I have noticed a few small areas with no regrowth and so I will continue to use it until it helps in other areas. The product as a whole is quick and easy to use, it’s light and looks lovely. The storage bag included is a lovely touch too. The only thing that did slightly worry me on first use is that the laser picks up even the tiniest of hairs and it sparked onto my skin and made me jump, however the last few times I’ve made sure I’ve thoroughly shaved the patches I’m using it on and it’s not been as bad.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Fantastic IPL Device!

The Braun IPL Silk-expert Pro 5 PL5124 is a home-use device that uses IPL (intense pulsed light) technology to slow and prevent hair growth and promises to keep you hair free with frequent top up treatments. So far I have been using the Braun IPL Pro 5 for approximately 4 weeks now and although it’s early days I am not the slightest bit disappointed- I LOVE it! I have been treating my leg, arm and upper lip area once a week and I am already noticing a huge difference in my hair regrowth. It’s so quick, easy and straightforward to use and I’m able to treat my entire body under 28mins! The Braun Silk-expert Pro 5 has an incredible SensoAdapt Skin Tone Sensor that adapts various intensity levels to suit various skin tones and allows you to build up to a level that is comfortable to you and to allow for the best possible results, in a short space of time. It also has a UV filtered protection and eye safety skin contact sensors for added protection. The device itself is very stylish, neat and of excellent quality. Very ergonomic in design which makes it a joy to use - it’s very easy to manoeuvre. It comes with a Venus razor included and a lovely storage case to keep your device safe and protected. I therefore highly recommend the Braun IPL Silk-expert Pro 5 PL5124.

Yes, I recommend this product !
