jaydegemini • In the team06/05/2016 - 11:15

My favourite part has been that from the beginning I felt so lucky to have tried out such an amazing product, I have loved being apart of the savvy circle team on this project and loved trying the silk expert IPL hair remover, it has been an amazing experience for me and I lol forward to being part of future savvy circle projects, and a huge Thankyou to Nicole at super savvy me and all of the Braun members. Thanks guys.


sindibis • In the team06/05/2016 - 11:26

My favourite part has been seeing the rate of hair growth slow down after just 3 weeks. This has got me super excited as I no longer need to shave every other day! Can't wait for being hair-free for upwards of a month!!!


mayarose • In the team06/05/2016 - 11:40

Just updated my last review on Amazon and as soon as it is verified, will post the link here and on social media too :) Loved the experience and still going on. My legs and arms never felt so smooth and I can see reduction in ingrown hairs on my legs too. My face and underarms are taking bit long time but then it depends on hair thickness and growth too. Due to hormonal imbalance I get facial hair bit too much than normal but I am hoping I will soon start seeing hair reduction on these parts too. I have already convinced 3 of my friends into buying it and start using it so hopefully soon we all will be hair free!


lizardbush • In the team06/05/2016 - 11:44

My favourite part was the unpacking - I love new gadgets. Quickly followed by my third sessions as I now know what I'm doing, there's really no special preparation or creams needed other than my normal shaving/epilation routine. I'm sure I am seeing improvements already and have been telling anyone who will listen how good the silk-expert is. It's now part of my weekend pamper session and I love keeping track with the app.


kala199 • In the team06/05/2016 - 12:14

What a great project ive loved it from the excitement of been picked for the team to trying the IPL device. Ive noticed an improvement on my legs as the hair growth has slowed down just in a few weeks. Thank you Nicole and the Braun team i hope you got the results you was after.


mazza1976 • In the team06/05/2016 - 13:50

wow this was a great project which I felt very lucky to be a part of. I am loving the results with the hair growth getting less each week .I will continue to use this product until one day soon I do not need it !
Thank you for this experience and I hope you got the results you wanted .


Sarmorris88 • In the team06/05/2016 - 14:13

I am so impressed how quickly I've noticed a change. Can't wait for longer lasting results


Tapir82 • In the team06/05/2016 - 16:10

Just updated my review on Amazon... I was so excited to get picked for this project as I had already been considering IPL for my very dark hair, particularly on my face. Like a lot of people, I'd have needed to be convinced to make such a big purchase so hope these reviews help everyone. I think my favourite part has been seeing results after just three treatments on my legs and face. My bikini line and underarms probably need a bit longer but I'm excited to continue the treatment. Thanks supersavvyme for picking me to be on the team!


HunHun • In the team06/05/2016 - 16:45

I loved the unpacking moment. It's always such a rush to "play" with new gadgets.
Thank you!


Emilie • In the team06/05/2016 - 21:28

This product actually works and is not just another gimmick on the market.It is so easy to use and I can definitely see the change and difference in my hair growth. My hair is now finer and grows definitely slower.No more worrying about breaking the bank on the expensive salon IPL treatment, you can have your own IPL in the comfort of your own home.Thank you Braun for giving me opportunity in this trial. I loved every moment of this trial and I will continue using this gadget


Emilie • In the team06/05/2016 - 21:29

My friend has now placed online order for this product.
Let's vote this a gadget of the year


angelmate7 • In the team06/05/2016 - 23:00

This has to be my top gadget,
it has made hairs thinner and lighter on legs and underarm and face
My leg and belly is so soft and hair free for about a week which is amazing thank you for giving me chance to be hair free.
Its given me more confidence and cannot wait to keep using this and soon be hair free
many thanks
keep up good work!!!


Kira1979 • In the team07/05/2016 - 00:43

This was my favourite project so far. I was able to remove my unwanted hair, discovered a new fantastic device, gained back my confidence. I love the fact that I can do it at home, and I do not have to pay every time I go to a salon to do IPL or laser treatment. Braun Silk expert is truly amazing!


Nafeesa23 • In the team07/05/2016 - 01:06

Favourite part was definitely being able to share my experience with other people in hope that they can make more informed choices... i hope i managed to help people even if its one person... this project meant a lot to me and i felt a lot of responsibilty with it if im honest. I have been through a lot of pain with my body hair (physical pain because of how thick and dense my hair was) i would have loved to have some help like this so i hope iv done justice in helping even one person


Nafeesa23 • In the team07/05/2016 - 01:13

A couple of things i would recommend though are..
1- supersavvy should have a tagging system like social networks just so that we can interact better with other savvy circlers... iv noticed through reading comments on all the posts everyone is talking to themselves... and the few people who have asked other circlers opinions and stuff wont know if someone has responded unless they go back to that particular post and read through every comment...i feel thats a bit of a downer... i wouldhave been a lot more active if i was able to interact with other circlers.. and i would have learned more about people with different skin tones and hair types but oh well....

Oh and arghhhhh at the charater restrictions!!!! On the important things like reviews, im not gonna lie, the struggle is real!!! Lol my reviews have been very detailed like i said i want to be as informative as possible from a normal persons point of view not a professional big complicated words point of view... so when i hav had to cut down my reviews i think iv spent hours deleting single words because i felt everything i said was important!

Saying that this project was fun and im a little sad to see it come to an end:(
Thanks nicole and the braun team and erin :)


88shirley88 • In the team07/05/2016 - 02:09

i just want to say thankyou so much to Braun for letting me try their product and also to supersavvy me :) i was so impressed with the Braun IPL i loved using it and i saw the results very quickly from this product and i have nothing bad to say about it :) it was very easy to use :) i told all of my family and friends about it :) you have made a very hairy lady very happy to be hairfree and feeling good about myself for a change so THANKYOU so much, it has been a privledge :)


Kirsty15032 • In the team07/05/2016 - 07:38

I have really enjoyed been part of the team and the opportunity to test such a great product. Although I have had such a big hassle trying to leave an Amazon review even ordering from new accounts just to try! I got there in the end tho by using another phone and my mums account it was all worth it. I have seen reduced hair growth under my arms already and my leg hair is coming back finer then before. I love how easy it is to use I even took it on holiday last week. I'm looking forward to have free legs this summer (hopefully by my next holiday in 3 weeks). I'd just like to say thank you for picking me and I'm really pleased I have been able to spread the word and even convince my sister to purchase one after trying mine last week. I'm a little sad the project is over to be honest but I have completed all that has been asked but I will definitely keep spreading the word!


vamp1501 • In the team07/05/2016 - 10:11

My fave parthe has been just being included in this fabulous trial. From the excitement of being picked and the unpacking. To using the product and seeing resultsome already after 3 weeks. Gowing to keep my treatments up and looking forward to the lasting results. Off to update my Amazon reviews now.


Sammy00 • In the team07/05/2016 - 15:58

Loved been part of such a fab project and having the opportunity to test the Braun IPL, thank you Erin for the quick response to problems i have had. Quick recap on my thoughts of hair removal and the Braun IPL.
Wow why have i never known such a hair removal device exsisted before :/  i knew salons offered hair removal treatments but for one too pricey and two embarresment of showing parts of me id rather not ! Tried waxing but to be completely honest would get a glass of wine obviously to numb the pain by the time i pluked up the courage the first time to try it was rather bladderd walking round in my pants (with obseen hairy stragglers) and ended up an absolute sticky mess ! So ended up with usual routine of shaving and note to self never try wax whilst having wine :/ fear not tho never gave up and tried again perserved with the growth and hit the wax, much better attempt than first time but think im just far too soft and can not inflict pain on oneself waxing never worked no matter how hard tried ended up picking more out with tweezers which i found i was quite good at just took forever and ended up with absolute awful pain in my neck from bending over.   So relief to have have opportunity of trying something in my own home and away from salons and hot flushes of embarressment.  Having the opportunity to use the braun IPL so easy to use love the device and the ease of use.  Just completed my fourth treatment and getting there.  Can definately notice reduced hair growth on finer hairs but the stubborn thicker ones are still hanging around.  I fear not though and will continue with the treatment over the next few weeks.  Thank you again super savvy for letting me take part on such a fab project.

Will definately be recommeding the Braun IPL.


petra888 • In the team07/05/2016 - 16:00

loving this product aren't you girls!!! Seen big results after just my 3rd treatment!:) I have just left my review on amazon and on social media and can not wait to finish these 12 weeks and progress to the next step. This is a miracle machine:) thank you for letting be part of this product I'm sure ma and loads of others appreciate their luck!


Zeba • In the team08/05/2016 - 02:28

I am so thankful to being part of this project for Braun Silk-expert IPL system. I had an excellent time using the product and feel with continued use will see great results of not needing to shave as often or at all again. Definitely for all who need to find a permanent solution to being hair-free for longer. I hope to be chosen for more projects in the future which I can give my honest review to help all who want to know if the product is any good before purchasing them and for me to enjoy in my own home too.


Clairep1983 • In the team08/05/2016 - 10:27

I have updated my Amazon review to say that I am really impressed that after only 3 treatments I am seeing very clear reduction in hair growth on my legs. I am really looking forward to seeing the results over the coming weeks and am really very grateful to have been chosen to be a part of this project :-)


lstephens2009 • In the team08/05/2016 - 11:30

I still thrilled that I was on of the lucky ones to have tried this technology. its definitely worth investing in the silk-expert ipl, it really does work to slow down the hair growth. ive noticed it more so on my legs, but have used it on my face, arms and underarms as well. the app has been useful to remind me of my treatment schedule. great, well run, project! thanks!x


AvaBelle • In the team08/05/2016 - 14:29

Thank you so much for letting me test this. After the short amount of time, I have noticed consider hair growth reduction and the hair that is coming back is thinner than before.
I would thoroughly recommend this to all!! x


didiflori • In the team08/05/2016 - 20:14

I can start to see the results now! After 4 weeks of using the Braun Silk-expert IPL my body hair is growing thinner and in some parts not growing at all! Can't wait to be hair free!


pinkspideruk • In the team08/05/2016 - 21:28

I've loved using the Braun IPL and best part has been seeing the results - I actually started seeing results on my legs following week 2 which is incredible!

I've left reviews on amazon and on boots and also done 3 posts on my personal blog - unfortunately I havent been able to post on the tried and tested section on here as it just wouldnt upload my review no matter what i tried which is disappointing as I want to let everyone know how awesome this is :D

I've been telling all my colleagues and friends about the project and about super savvy me as well.

Thanks for letting me try and keep this amazing item and I cant wait to see what other projects are coming up in the future :D


sofialala • In the team08/05/2016 - 23:34

My favourite part was the excitement of getting picked for the project, I couldn't believe it and I was grinning all day! Second fav was unpacking my bundle of you, I recorded it on snapchat too!

I have left reviews on Amazon and on tried & tested but I'm not sure if my review went through on tried & tested - I tried 6 times or so and it still didn't appear :(

Thank you so much for choosing me for this project and letting us keep the item, I will continue to rave about it even after the project :D


MissRebeiro12 • In the team09/05/2016 - 09:36

Can't believe this project has come to an end already! I've loved every minute of it, especially my new exfoliating and IPL routine :) The results have been a real pleasing surprise, i never thought i would see such good results so quickly.
Thanks again for choosing me to be part of this team, i hope all the honest reviews do really help :)


sexyminx82 • In the team09/05/2016 - 13:38

I have loved this project, cant believe its ended all ready. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to try the new Braun IP, such a fab product that I will continue to use.


mayarose • In the team09/05/2016 - 14:18

Loved all the excitement I felt the moment I found out I was selected for this project and the very same excitement is still going on even though it is bit sad that project is now ended! I still feel very excited whenever tell someone about the experience I am going through with Braun IPL and can't wait to wear my summer dress to show my hair free legs :)


sarah_123 • In the team09/05/2016 - 14:24

Loved this project, talked to quite a lot of people about it! Its the way forward!


squergal • In the team09/05/2016 - 20:17

What a great product! I feel so lucky to have reviewed it and answered questions from other people via Amazon. I will definitely continue to use it and tell all my friends too!


tpinkb • In the team09/05/2016 - 21:55

I have loved everything about this project. I still can't believe I was chosen to take part and can't that Braun and the team enough for giving me the amazing opportunity to try it. I was so pleased to see results after just one use and how great the results continue to be after every use. The best results for me so far have been on my legs and bikini but will continue to update my reviews after more uses. I am still so excited every time I use it and talk about it where ever I go. My sister ordered one for herself and my friend is now ordering one so she can get hair free ready for her wedding and honeymoon next year. Can't wait to see the results after 12 weeks and I look forward to future projects. I'm sad to see this one end so soon though.


lmsuperstar • In the team10/05/2016 - 09:54

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try the product. I think the project should run for a few more weeks yet, as I have very stubborn hair! It has worked to some extent, but I think four weeks, for me, was a bit optimistic! I will continue to use the product as it's not hard to use, so hopefully I'll see some really noticeable results soon.


charrisdaisy • In the team10/05/2016 - 12:36

The best thing aabout this project apart from the product itself was the useful tips and review i read that others posted. Made me feel at ease trying the product as i was a new starter. Thank you for the opportunity :)


Uz123 • In the team10/05/2016 - 22:42

I am so happy I had the opportunity to test this product and have already recommended to many people.
This has worked great on my legs, underarms, face, and other small areas. I'm surprised at how quick I am able to see the changes, my hair growth has slowed and in some areas the hair is hardly showing in between treatments.
I do feel the project should go on for another 4weeks to be able to provide exact results. I will keep updating my Amazon review and the reviews I have left on other sites.


RDove • In the team11/05/2016 - 20:32

Really am so happy to be part of the group
The best bit has been using the device and seeing results
Like some other team members I think il need a lot more treatments to see results but the community here is great!


Shotsy91 • In the team11/05/2016 - 21:21

I'm just in the process of updating my Amazon review for the third time and will be uploading a review on supersavvyme in the next few days. I'm absolutely thrilled to have been a part of this and do genuinely feel I've seen really noticeable results, enough so that any initial reservations have quietened down a lot.

It's been a real pleasure reading the opinions of others and discussing and finding tips with the other members involved too, and I hope our experiences and feedback assist anyone who wasn't chosen for the team in assessing whether this is the right product for them. I'm confident we'll have influenced people everywhere as there has been so much enthusiasm and input!

I do however agree with another team member a few comments above mine... This project really should have ran for a few more weeks so we could give a truly accurate reflection of the results, as none of us are more than 5 uses in or so at this stage... I would have also loved the option to submit conversation reports and 'ask friends' sheets as this was something I discussed anywhere and everywhere and I had piles of queries and feedback from everyone I spoke to!

Right now I'm still far from hair free, however I do think I see a genuine reduction in the amount of hair growth and also how quick the hair is growing back, meaning I'm feeling really positive about the future and confident enough in the end result that I'll be using the Braun Silk Expert for years to come.


JoeyM • In the team12/05/2016 - 08:53

I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this project and I'm really impressed with the product - I'm already seeing results a month in. I look forward to seeing the what happens after the full 12 weeks. Thank you for such a great opportunity.


MamaKhindy • In the team12/05/2016 - 10:49

This has been such an amazing project, it really has been life changing! My underarms are already pretty hair free there's just a little patch left on each that I still need to work on. Also I can now after 4 weeks really see a difference on my legs, I know I still need to do a lot more treatments but it makes it worth it when after a week the growth is so minimal and there are 'bald' patches. This is such a great product and I am so Thankful to the whole team for allowing me to be part of this project. I rave about this at my baby swim classes! When a product is this good you can't help but tell everyone about it!


welshoak • 12/05/2016 - 15:42

Wish I could have been on this project (or could afford one). Question for the people who are trialing, would you recommend it for the cost of it? Is it creating hair free areas?


MrsRuse • In the team12/05/2016 - 18:09

My favourite part is simply all of it!
I can't believe I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a part of this amazing project! The day I received and unpacked it I couldn't wait to try it and was plastering pictures all over Facebook! But the most amazing part is the fact it actually works! It really does, I've suffered with facial hair all my life because of pcos and the improvement I've noticed since using this has left me speechless I feel so much more confident! Thank-you so much Braun and Savvycircle!


Samsphere • In the team13/05/2016 - 00:12

Feel so lucky to have been part of this project! The Braun IPL device was so much easier to use than I had expected and I've noticed far less hair growth on my IPL treated leg even after just 3 treatments and am looking forward to seeing some impressive long-lasting results! Thanks again for picking me as part of the testing team!


Shotsy91 • In the team13/05/2016 - 01:06

WELSHOAK - I am 4 weeks in and have really coarse and persistent hair growth and always have done. So far I'm far from hair free but I can honestly say that my hair does seem to be growing back much slower and not half as thickly. Within the treatment areas I am noticing very small patches where I don't seem to getting any regrowth at all but I think it's hard to say for sure as really we are still so early into the process. We should have 12 off these weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance sessions, so really we aren't even half way through.

I don't know if I'd say that it's creating hair free areas yet but I would say that the results up until now are positive and encouraging enough that I would recommend one of these based on everything I've seen so far. I'm spending a hell of a lot less time and effort on hair removal already and feel more confident than I have done in years and years. For this alone, I could jump for joy!

If you are going to go for a home IPL system, this is definitely the one I'd recommend. I used a Philips Lumea for a long time - not only is it more expensive but it was much more complicated to use and very bulky and heavy compared to the Braun Silk Expert.

Sorry you weren't chosen but good luck for the future, and I hope this helped answer some of the questions you have.


Deen2010 • 13/05/2016 - 08:01

I have to admit, I did grin and bear the pain of using the machine and I got used to it. So far I have used it once a week, so 3 times and I have seen a great reduction in hair growth in both under arms and legs. Hmmm, I never thought the product would work or that i'd like it. Well done so far but still got a few more treatments to go.


charrisdaisy • In the team13/05/2016 - 08:45

Hi Guys a lady just asked on aazn
PinkiePrincess2016 asked
"Can this be used whilst breast feeding?"

Does anyone know?


kala199 • In the team14/05/2016 - 08:22

Ive done my 4th treatment on my legs ive noticed the hair growth has slowed under arms are taking its time to show any difference i think its going to need more treatments than my legs.We are only 4 weeks in and Rome wasn't built in a day lol. Thank you all for been part of the team ive loved it.


Clairep1983 • In the team16/05/2016 - 22:08

I wrote a review on supersavvyme just over 1 week ago, but it doesn't show yet? Whenever I click back to check it just says thank you for your review it may take up to 72 hours to's been around 9 days :-(

On the plus side, I am still very impressed with the Braun IPL device and would never return to salon treatments now I have this!


Bhanu • In the team19/05/2016 - 15:14

The favourite part is seeing the effectiveness of the product as starting seeing no hairs on arms and upper lip area now..
Thank you for providing this great opportunity!!


ewelinka0290 • In the team19/05/2016 - 19:05

All parts of project were my favourite - from unboxing to enjoying my smooth skin now :) I am really impressed. Thank you for the opportunity :)


scatty_jax • 20/05/2016 - 17:56

wish I had been able to try this out :-(


Leonieb • In the team30/05/2016 - 21:38

Hi everyone, i have tried to leave my review on here a few times but its just not having it for some reason. Ive updated my amazon review its under the name MissB. Its been soo great using this I'm so glad I was selected really is a privilege the results are more than I hoped for I continue to be impressed :-). Thanks again to Erin and the Braun Team


lmsuperstar • In the team31/05/2016 - 12:40

I'm starting to see real results now, after 6 treatments I barely had to shave. Just done my 7th treatment and there's a little bit of stubble on my legs, but I could quite easily put a skirt on without worrying about hairyness (my only worry is my extremely pale, milk bottle skin!).


smirnoff35 • 31/05/2016 - 12:59

Wish I was selected for this ...................I did not make it on the team...........gutted as I have really dark thick hair and have to shave twice a day . I would have loved to try and see if this worked


Billie31 • 05/06/2016 - 08:11

It's been good reading the reviews, looks like this is a good investment product, thanks everyone for the honest opinions.


cosmic_kerry • In the team10/06/2016 - 11:20

Still using on a weekly basis and wow! i have very little regrowth on my legs and under arms! Worth every penny :-)


kirriel • In the team06/07/2016 - 18:43

Hey. Just to let you know. One of the opinions you used on your wall has my picture but it isn't my quote.


Srathore • 09/10/2016 - 08:42

I would absolutely love to try this product. I think it would make life much easier for me when it comes to Hair removal. If Braun is looking for another product tester, I would be delighted to participate. 💋


Srathore • 26/01/2017 - 13:07

I'm really wanting to test this product and share my experience.
