Gillette Venus Naked Skin IPL Hair Reduction System

Two of the biggest names in hair removal have joined forces to bring you a super IPL system like no other – the Gillette Venus Naked Skin designed by Braun Intense Pulsed Light Hair Reduction System. Must they come up with such long names?

Any way! You’ll know I’m no stranger to hair removal (having tried every method available) so I gladly accepted the Venus Naked Skin Challenge by Gillette to trial and document my findings of this at-home IPL system.

I am intrigued how this device will perform especially as I am a fervant fan of Gillette Venus razor blades and have been using Braun’s epilators for years. These are two names I wholeheartedly trust.

Apparently I will see noticeable results after 6 sessions with regular use. It’s designed for use on the legs, arms, bikini area and underarms, but is only suitable for certain skin types with dark hairs, like a lot of IPL devices.

Over the next 12 weeks I shall be sharing my views on Just Nice Things with videos and of course I will show you how it all works so check back in two weeks for my first round-up. Let me know if you have any burning questions (excuse the pun but you’ve got to admit it was a pretty good one!).

In the mean time, you can visit the official site here for more information.

The Gillette Venus Naked Skin designed by Braun Intense Pulsed Light Hair Reduction System is available from Boots and priced at £399.99.

    Oooo! I heard these were due to land soon but I had it in my head it was next year. Looking forward to hearing how you get on as I’m a total IPL convert since I had my underarms done; really want to do my legs now too! xx

    Sascha, did you have IPL done by a salon/clinic or at home? How did you find the whole process? I’m going to tackle my legs and arms, and maybe zap my underarms for a top-up (had laser done a few years ago).

    I would like to know how painful this kit is! I want to try it but am a wuss bag of epic proportion!

    Hi Kelly,

    I had my first session tonight and I must admit, I was worried it would hurt. I have an incredible pain threshold to tolerate bikini waxes and epilators but IPL usually isn’t a breeze particularly when it takes so long with so much area to cover. First impression is it does not hurt. Really, it doesn’t. I’m not sure how much pain you can tolerate but I found this to be practically painless and I have tried the E>One IPL machine, where you did feel something. Some IPL machines describe the sensation of a rubber band pinging against your skin, the Gillette Venus feels like a warm light but not like an electric shock. At times it was a bit ticklish and in the underarms I didn’t feel a thing. Any way, that’s my initial reaction. I will post something more in-depth in 2 weeks but so far, I haven’t been turned off!

    You’ve used this device on your face? Not sure you’re supposed to…didn’t think it was physically possible.
