venus silk expert... Removes hair from wooly woman

I must admit that my least favorite job in the world is shaving my legs!!! I have always been prone to razor burns and I have very thick coarse, dark hair on my legs. That's why I was very excited to try the Gillette Venus Silk Expert that I received free from Braum for my honest opinion. There are two ways to use gliding mode and precision mode. The gliding mode is good for large areas and precision mode is best for smaller areas. It is very easy to use. For gliding you just press a button and slowing move it up. It is also dummy proof... It will not flash unless it is against the skin properly and the skin color is appropriate. The precision mode allows you to put it in one place and push the button. I found the precision mode easier on the lower parts of my leg..especially up my shins and around ankle area. The gliding mode worked great for my upper leg. I did not experience any pain, redness or discomfort. I did smell a slight smell of burning hair. I am very excited about this product and can't wait to share the results with you in a few weeks!!!

So Far So Good!

I have completed 1 treatment so far with the Gillette Venus Silk-expert (treatment plan is once a week). The only side effect I have experienced is mild, temporary itching. I love the sleek design and it is extremely easy to use. Can't wait to see the results in 12 weeks! It also came with a bonus Braun facial brush which opened my pores and left my face feeling fresh and sqeaky clean.Thanks BzzAgent! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Nice hair removing tool so far!

I was so excited to try the Venus Silk Expert IPL hair remover from Braun for free! I had laser treatments done on my bikini area before at a treatment facility which hurt like crazy and was so expensive, but gave me good results, so I wasn't sure what to expect from a home device. So far, so good with this one! It was a very easy set up-just plug in the power supply cord into the device and then into the wall and the power fan automatically turns on. The directions are simple too...just make sure you keep good skin contact for the sensors, which is easy to tell because there are white lights on the sides that light up when it is being used correctly. Then you just press the glide button continuously as you move the device slowly across your desired hair removal area and you're done! The pain initially was about a 5/10, but it definitely varies with each user and I got used to it the more I used it on my legs. The device feels very hot on your skin as you're using it, like little tiny shocks, but is much easier than the laser treatment "shocks" I felt at a laser treatment facility and it made me feel like it was working now having had compared the two types of treatment. I can't wait to see the results after a full course...12 weeks (only once a week).The only problem I had was before I even started because I hadn't realized when I signed up that you couldn't use it on newly tanned skin, which is kind of hard to do in the summer. It says to wait a week after tanning, but I'm not sure if my tanned skin will affect the results or not at this point. So I had to wait a little while before I could actually use this item. The darker your skin, the less power/joules the device will output, so it may not work as well or it may take a longer period of time to get the same results. If your skin is too dark, it won't work at all, but luckily, I was still in good range for treatment! Overall, I recommend this product so far for its ease of use.

Seems like a good product

I received this kit for free through buzz agent in exchange for my honest review. I have to say up front that I have not used the product long enough to know what the true results would be if I continued. I used it for about 3.5 weeks, then found out I was pregnant and since the instructions say it hasn't been tested with pregnant women therefore is not recommended, I opted not to continue the treatment. However, I can still review based on my use for those 3.5 weeks. I was excited to try this out because I have light skin and very dark hair and have to shave my legs every day! This product was pretty user friendly. I have extremely sensitive skin and did experience some slight irritation the first couple uses but it seemed to ease after. I think this product does have potential to work well with extended use. I did start to feel like I didn't have to shave my legs every single day and I didn't feel as "prickly" I plan to start using it again after baby is born. I can update my review then [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Initial set-up and test area

The instructions and precautions included with the device are easy to understand. I had no trouble setting myself up to do my first session. I chose to start with one inconspicuous area on my leg as a test spot. I prepped the area as directed and used the device as stated. The sensation was a bit uncomfortable, but nothing that would prevent me from using it over a larger area or for repeated applications. I've read some very interesting information about this type of light therapy and am excited to see the results. I will give the test area a day or so to see how it responds (i.e., no irritation--it takes several applications over time to see results) and then will begin an area for hair-removal in earnest and will report back on the results with before-and-after photos. I have fair skin and dark hair, which I think is an ideal combination for effectiveness. I received this product for free from Braun in exchange for my review, though my opinions are all my own.

Four treatments in!

I've now used the Venus Silk-expert four times, and am very pleased with the initial results. Even though it's supposed to take 12 weeks, I've noticed a reduction in hair growth already. In the past I'd shave twice a week, now I can really just do it once, right before I use the IPL. I've focused primarily on the underarm and bikini areas, and am finding it simpler to use than the first time and therefore faster. The hair on my legs is quite pale, and it takes a long time to go over such a large area thoroughly, so I've concentrated on the annoying parts to shave, in particular the ankles. I'll definitely keep it up! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Definitely works for less hair growth!

After having used Gillette Venus Silk-expert four times over the last month, I have to say there is a significant difference. My hair is at least 50% less on my legs and almost non-existent in my arm pits. I am finding that I think less about needing to shave now. There is still no pain with use, and the wand is as simple to use as before. I am completely sold on this product for reducing hair growth. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I'm REALLY impressed!

I cannot believe I'm saying this, but the Venus Silk-expert is at least as good as professional laser treatments. A couple of years ago, I got laser treatments to remove hair in a couple of different places and it worked okay, but some of it has come back. It's so expensive, that I haven't gone back to have any touch-ups done or to do any new areas. The Venus Silk-expert is really reasonably priced, compared to getting laser removal done by a professional. And, you only have to pay once for it; you can use it at your convenience and any time that you see that you need to redo particular areas. It is small enough that you could take it with you on a trip too.There are only two cons, that I can see. One, it won't work for everyone. It is not recommended for people with very dark skin or very light hair. I have very light skin and very dark hair, so it works great for me. Two, you aren't supposed to use it on your face. I was surprised by this, as that is one area that many would like to use this for. The machine itself is really easy to use. You just plug it in, place it again your skin, and press a button. It does burn just a tiny bit, but not as much as I expected... and certainly not as much as a professional laser wand. I have been using it about once a week, sometimes every six days, for the past few weeks. And I have seen definite results from the Venus Silk-expert already. I decided to do a couple different areas, so that I could see how well it worked. On my underarms, I now have less than half of the hair than I used to. On my legs, I did one area on each leg and left an area untouched, so that I could see the difference. The sections on which I used the Venus Silk-expert have almost no hair at all now.It really is amazing and I am recommending it to everyone I can think of. I really hope the machine itself lasts for a really long time. I'm hooked. I can't wait to see the difference between now and a couple more weeks from now.

Venus Silk Expert is awesome!!!

I have upgraded the Venus Silk to 5 stars after using it for four weeks. I have been working on both legs and have seen great results so far. I would estimate about a 50% reduction of hair to this point. I have fair skin and very dark hair. I've had laser hair removal in the past by a professional on other areas. I have seen more drastic results faster with the professional, but it is very costly and a lot more painful for me. I am still very pleased with the very little to no pain I experience when using Venus Silk. The larger surface of the tip and the cord are great features along with the glide mode. I would highly recommend Venus Silk. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
