Braun Silk Epil 5

Brilliant!!Once I managed to purchase the travel adaptor, as I don't have a 2 pin plug :(..The instruction manual could of been clearer, as it doesn't state what each setting is for, or whether the product needs plugging in or if it is wireless.. :/I loved the product.. It worked really well for my hair type.. (although I used my partner as my guinea pig!)I give this product a 4 star rating! Reason is, I think if being shipped to the UK, it should of came with a 3 pin plug.. :(Other than that, I had no problems at all,

Who said no pain no gain?

I've always been so scared to use Epilators, just the sound of the machine and the thought of using it has always put me off. I've heard a few horror stories too - albeit from someone who may just be over the top.The product states that it can remove even the shortest of all hairs. It comes with an ice pack to help soothe the area and a cleansing brush for the face. This time I thought I would try out the epilator itself.On charging the Silk-épil 5 up, I was surprised it didn't make the noisy sound most of Epilators do, and it did not put me off using it.My hair was relativity short, and I thought this was the best time to test it out, to see if it really did work on short hair, or whether it was just a gimmick used by most other companies.To my surprise it did actually work, and it was not painful at all! I think the rollers on the epilator helped to massage out the area first before using it - my tip, however, would be to pull the skin taught before using.The only fault with the product is that it is actually a bit smaller than other epilators I've seen on the market, however, this could also be a good thing as it is quite compact!All in all a good product recommended for first time epilator users or those who do not have a high pain threshold.

Silk epil 5 epilator

I couldn't wait to open my package off the postman. On opening the outer box I have to say the product looked very welcoming by the way it was presented. Once inside, I took time to read the very informative booklets, which are printed in several languages so as to be helpful worldwide. I experimented with the facial brush first. I had a slight problem opening the battery compartment but I suppose this would be because of the newness. No other problems, it was lovely to use!The epilator is just the right size to handle and works a treat! True to brauns word, it certainly removes the fine hairs. One slight problem with the cable, not everyone would expect to find a two point plug, so an adapter is required. The cooling glove with ice pack is a bonus, lovely!I would recommend this product 100%

Braun silk-epil5 the time saver

My beautician was surprised whenI asked for just one leg to be waxed I wanted to compare the Braun silk-epil to waxing , well it was easy to use loved the ice pack which is great to used before you start . after 4 weeks went back to have my legs waxed again and found that the leg which I used the Braun was as good as the waxed leg!!! But, the only downfall I found when using the Braun again you must make sure that you keep the skin taut as the skin can get caught in the head of the Braun.If the Braun shaver had a three pin plug you would be able to use this anywhere anytime but having to reply on a shaver plug which is a pain, the upside is you don't have to worry about making apt for waxing.The cleansing brush for the face was ok but felt it didn't completely cleanse my face, if sold separately would not purchase it.

braun 5 = 5 *

I was sceptical to say the least having tried the first silk-èpil many many moons ago and can still recall the agony but i am very pleased to report its a huge improvement it was as it said on the box virtually pain free i know i couldnt believe it either! It was so easy to use and clean afterwards. I loved the face cleanser a real bonus my face felt squeeky clean and not at all sore like other similar products. I am more than happy to give the silk-èpil a 5* rating and look forward to a smooth fuzz free summer !!!!!

Miss M N M N

I was very excited when my epilator arrived I couldn't wait to use it. The packaging was brilliant, there's a window on the front of the box that lets you see the epilator and the face brush. When I opened it there was a instruction manual for the epilator and the face brush, which was very vlear and easy to understand it is in several different languages which is brilliant. So I took out the epilator to use first and was very disappointed as the plug is not suitable for British plugs you use it in a shaving socket which I have got in the bathroom and not in my spare beauty room where I like to pamper my self. That was very off putting as I couldn't epilate when I wanted too. There is a cooling gel and glove that is absolutely brilliant if you have got sensitive skin like me. So I used this prior to epilating and during epilating and it kind of numbed my legs for a few seconds which took away the pain not much but it helped. The gel you can keep in the freezer so it's always there when you need it. I had to go over some areas a few times as the epilator missed a few short hairs which wasn't too much of a problem it was probably me not holding it right to be honest as you have to hold it at a certain angle. The torch on the epilator was a good idea. It is very easy to clean and wash. Overall the product is brilliant the only down side to it is the plug!!!!My legs felt super smooth after using this epilator as it has also got a pivoting head it adopts to my skin where i am using it, and the high frequency massage system makes it alot less painful as you epilate as the massaging system provides gentle epilating.The face brush that comes with the epilator is fantastic I would pay good money for that on its own. It comes with two batteries and clear instructions on how to use. After using this product only once I can notice the difference on my skin. The heads to the face brush you have to change after every 3 months. It is also water resistant which means you can use it when in the shower. You can also use it to remove make up.I definitely recommend this product it is well worth the money especially as you get 2 things :)

No pain, great gain!

I purposely didn't shave my legs for a good few weeks in the anticipation that I would be able to test this! I'm glad I did! Easy to use and hardly any pain, I was expecting quite a bit since previous experiences with others in the past! Smooth legs for my holidays!

Yes, I recommend this product !

smooth removal

I have to say that this was my first time trying one of these & I was a little dubious to say the least.That said, I have to say I was impressed with the overall finish once I had used it. It left my legs hair-free for a much longer period.It does have to be said that this is not a pain-free option, and I did jump a little at the discomfort from it all, but if you can get over this little bit you soon get used to it & legs are left hairless for a far longer period than shaving.
