Gillette Venus Silk-expert

I received the Gillette Venus Silk-expert free from Braun to test out. I was very excited about receiving this product and giving it a try. I have used the product for about 5 weeks now on my legs and underarms. It is extremely simple and easy to use.he product is quick to warm up as well as cool down. I love how low maintenance it is. It also is able to sense your skin tone and adjusts the strength accordingly. This product really requires no stress/thought to use! During use, there is a bright flash and a warming sensation. With each flash, I do feel some minor pain and the dull ache lasts for maybe 2 minutes after finishing use. This is the only reason I have given it 4 stars instead of 5. That being said, I do feel like it is worth it! I have noticed both a reduction in regrowth as well as that regrowth taking longer to return. To test out the product, I've been using on one leg and just shaving the other. At 5 weeks in, there is a noticeable difference in the regrowth between the two legs.I can't wait to see what 12 weeks of use brings! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Extreme hair removal

This is the Cadillac of hair removal systems. When it arrived in the mail, I though, whoa, this is like professional-level technology! I had to read through the safety manual several times to ensure that I didn't accidentally burn (or blind!) myself by the lasers when using the hair removal tool. So this system has two parts: a vibrating face brush, which is actually favorite part of the system, and a IPL hair removal tool that's FDA approved. The face brush is amazing: it's soft and does a really good job at cleaning my face, and it doesn't break me out like other tools I've tried. But the hair removal part was actually kind of intimidating to use. For one, all the assurances of its safety are more disconcerting than comforting for someone who is used to just using a razor and soap. I would have loved to see a video walk through on how to use it to be sure I was doing it right. I tested out a small patch of skin on my ankle, as the booklet said to. It didn't really hurt; it sort of felt like snapping a rubber band against your skin a few times. It was way less painful than waxing, but a little more painful than using a razor. The hair in that test patch actually grew back significantly more slowly than the rest of the hair on my leg, which suggests that this product does work a lot better than razors. But the discomfort I felt worrying about whether or now this product might scar my skin, change the skin color/texture, or cause permanent hair loss, or other changes, made me not want to use it as a replacement for shaving. It was fun to try, but I think I'll stick with my razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A bit painful

I received the Gillette Venus silk expert for free from Braun in exchange for my honest review. The regular setting was a bit painful for me so I used the sensitive setting for all my treatments. The machine itself was a bit tough to position on some portions of my leg and because I was doing my leg in patches, I sometimes felt like I was missing some parts of my leg. Finally, I did not see a noticeable difference between pre and post treatments. I don't have a lot of hair on my legs to begin with, so that may be a reason why I didn't see a noticeable difference.

Venus Silk Hair Removal-I hope it works!

I received the Gillette Venus Silk-expert free from Braun in exchange for my honest opinion. I tried this on my left leg and left armpit to see if after 12 weeks, I can see a difference between my left and right sides. The instructions were easy to understand and the device was fairly easy to use. It was easy to glide up the side of my calf. However, when I was trying it on my shin, I had to turn the device and use the precision setting. It didn't hurt on my legs and I only have a few red bumps on my upper thigh. They went away after 10 minutes. It did startle me in my armpit and stung for a few seconds. This product was very easy to use and only took a few minutes to use. I am excited to see if this will work as I despise shaving my legs! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Hair be GONE!

I received the Venus Silk Expert from Braun in exchange for an honest review. I was so excited when I was chosen to receive this product and was so anxious to use it. After reading the instructions, I was upset to learn that you couldn't use this product on your face.... I was very pleased with the results on my underarms and legs so far. I've been using this product for a week now. I truly hope the truly hope the results will be as stated and will be so glad to be done with shaving!

Still Going Strong!

Week 4 in the books, I have the same feelings as I had when I posted two weeks ago. It does get easier as the treatments progress. It still pinches a little bit during the treatment as well. I cannot say that I for sure have noticed and permanent differences in hair growth/loss, but I did notice I had a very this thin purple spider vein and now it is gone! I did some research on whether this treatment was capable of collapsing this dead vein and getting rid of the discoloration, and it turns out that Intense Pulse Light treatments, such as this, can do it! I am going to see if I have any other hidden veins and test it out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Venus Silk Expert

It has been exactly one week since my first treatment with the Venus Silk Expert that I obtained for free from Braun for my honest review. The product claims that it takes several weeks to get rid of all the unwanted hair due to the hair growth cycle. I really wanted to see if it really worked and if I would have less hair so I did not shave for an entire week. After just one treatment I had noticeably less hair. I would say at least 1/3 to 1/2 less hair. (I have very thick, dark hair on my legs). My hair did not grow near as long as it typically would in a full week's time. I think that is due to the hair growth cycle and the hair follicles that did not produce hair this cycle. I am very pleased with the results so far. I did not have any irritation with either treatment. Zero redness and zero pain. During the treatment I see a bright light, hear a zapping sound and occasionally feel a tiny sting that does not hurt at all. I am excited about this pain free product and can't wait to see the results in 7 more weeks. I will update my review then!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert Powered by Braun

I had the opportunity to try the Gillette® Venus® Silk-expert for free from Braun. I have been using it for 4 weeks and have not noticed much difference in hair regrowth. It is easy enough to use but time consuming for large areas such as legs. Will have to be persistent to see if it makes a difference in the long run.

Visible results!

I wasn't sure what to expect with the Gillette Venus Silk-expert. I've had laser hair removal in small areas before and while I was pleased with the results, it wasn't a fun experience. You have to be gooped up with gel to act as a medium and it's not a small amount! And the pain! The areas that the laser can't be in constant motion, were very susceptible to pain. I could feel the heat radiate through my skin and seriously questioned if it was the smartest thing to do. Enter the Gillette Venus Silk-expert. I was a little hesitant after my previous experience. I was excited for a more permanent hair removal, but not looking forward to the pain. With the Gillette you don't use a gel either, so I was sure that without any buffer it would be more intense. I'm pleased to say that I was completely wrong! The laser is gentler than those in a med spa. It also comes with a button you press where you can dial back the laser intensity in case you're particularly sensitive or just curious how the sensation will feel at first. I've been using the Gillette Venus Silk-expert for four straight weeks on my underarms and I'm very pleased. I have fair skin and dark hair, so it was apparent that I needed to shave usually the evening of the day that I did actually shave. My underarm skin appeared darker as well; I'm not sure if it was from the irritation of shaving, the darkness of my hair or a combination of the two. After one week, underarm hair became much less dense. After two weeks, hair growth slowed noticeably. After three and four weeks, it's been a continuation of the initial results. I'm very excited to see where I am after the full eight. While there is a bit of pain, it is much less painful than nicking yourself with a razor. It's doesnt burn, linger or sting. Smaller areas such as underarms take less than five minutes. Larger areas, such as legs, take quite a bit longer, depending on how quickly you move the unit. I'm very happy with the Gillette Venus Silk-expert. It's so convenient and user-friendly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A little scary at first, but excited about the device's potential!

I received the Gillette Venus Silk-expert free from Braun. Overall, I think this product has great potential, and I'm excited to see results! I wasn't sure what to expect. Upon first using the Gillette Venus Silk-expert, I was caught off guard by the shock when I placed the machine on the bottom of my ankle and pushed the button. I would love to see a video that explains how to use the device and explain what to expect, in addition to the written instructions. But, after the initial shock (literally and physically), it honestly wasn't too bad. It feels like a little snap from a rubber band. I will gladly endure that to reduce and remove unwanted hair. I found the product a bit difficult to use on smaller hard-to-reach areas. My shins are not as wide as the head on the device, so I had to get creative with positioning. Once I figured out the best way to reach all of the hard-to-reach spots, it was quick and easy. I used the device on various areas, including legs, bikini line, arms, stomach and upper lip. I'm looking forward to seeing the results after several weeks. If this works, I will shout to the rooftops and tell all friends and family about this device.
