Easy to use!

Initial thoughts: I used this on my armpits and bikini line as I'm not supposed to expose treated skin to sunlight (and its summer)! Just plug it in and snap. However, I wish the "gentle" button was a switch. Hit it once and gentle mode is on until it's hit again. I thought I had to hold it down while snapping. It's warm when it flashes and I'm itchy afterwards for just a few minutes.It's hard to not look at the flash to protect ur eyes. Maybe uv glasses would be a nice add into the package. I like the feature of automatically adjusting to skin type. It's difficult to know if the area was treated or not so that there isn't overlap as instructed. If I can't look at the flash, and there's no indication that there was treatment, I'm not sure how to avoid overlap. I got the unit for free from Braun.

Hair Removal

Braun sent me the new Gillette Venus Silk Expert to try out in return for my honest review. Before I started the treatment I read over the information packet. There are a lot of "do not" safety concerns. Once you are ready to begin you must shave the area you are going to treat. Braun includes a razor which is a nice touch. I first tried a test patch on my leg. It was definitely uncomfortable and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to handle it on a larger area of skin. However, Braun has included a "gentle mode". This was perfect for me! I was able to complete the first treatment with no issues at all. Braun recommends that you treat the area once a week for 12 weeks. This product is super easy to use.

Gillette Venus Silk-expert IPL

I received this product for free from Braun in return for my honest opinion. When receiving this product, I must say that I was super excited to give it a whirl. I have to constantly shave my arm pits, in the morning and then again if I go out in the evening as I have super dark hair that grows fast. I tried this product on one leg in order to tell if there was a substantial difference between the two as well as both arm pits. I used this product for a several weeks, but I must give the product more time in order to provide a comprehensive review of the product. I plan to continue to use to see if I can tell any sort of difference. This product is super easy to use and with minimal to no irritation. I just felt a little zap, almost like static electricity.

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!!!

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.]

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.]

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!

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.]
