Silk Epil 5

My first package from bzzagent arrived I was like a child at christmas opening it. Once I knew I was in on the campagin I started to let my leg hairs grow ready for the test. Ouch ouch ouch was my first words when trying it out. It was worse than giving birth!!!!! I started off epilating at my ankles and work my way up. The pain was excrutiating but after a while you just numb to the pain. I actually found it rather relaxing once I had got used to it and it has left my legs silky soft so no more shaving for me whoopeeeee.

interesting product

the packaging is sleek, the product is professional looking. i was unhappy that I needed to buy an adapter to use the product. I had never used an epilater before but I think I will use this product from now on as made my legs feel great.

Silk epil 5

I absolutely love this item. Before buying this item I'd like to know if there is a 3 pin plug version as mine was a 2 pin and I had to buy an adapter. Other than that product is amazing. My legs are really smooth. The product itself is amazing one downfall is mine needs to be connected to the mains to allow it to work. At first I found it slightly sharp but after all I'm a wimp but once I got the hang it was fab would define toy recommend especially for those silky summer legs and it doesn't cut you like a razor does overall 10/10 the added extras are also a bonus

Silk-epil 5

I have used this for the first time today and I must say so far it is by far better than any other hair removal equipment I have used before now it's just the waiting to see how long hair free will last!!!

The amazing Braun silk epil 5

i was a little nervous at first at trying it, but it really isnt bad,it hurt at first but i soon got used to it. It was really easy to use. After i finished both legs they were a little sore but the ice pack which i got with it soon eased it and i got a little rash which i thought i would as it is pulling your hairs out. But over all im very happy with this product and i reconmend it.

silk-epil 5 (legs)

I was quite excited to be accepted onto my first bzz campaign to test the silk-epil 5 epilator. Once I found out I researched the product and spoke with friends who also have the product. I heard nothing but praise for the silk epil. I received my kit quite quickly via the post and once I had purchased a shaver adaptor I was ready to try it out. As a first time user I used the cooling pad to take away some of the sensitivity on my shins although the rest of my legs were fine. Can't wait to use the product again and hopefully won't be as sensitive as time goes on. I would and have recommended this product to people I've spoken to as it's a great investment vs shaving and makes the legs look so much smoother.

Braun Silk-Epil 5 Epilator - Great product!

I have never used an epilator before and have shaved my legs for years so some pain when using it was to be expected. The cooling glove provided did help to soothe this so I could persevere with it. I was very pleased with the results as it does get every hair and even the very short ones so you don't have to wait for it to grow long before you can use it again, which is definitely an advantage in the summer as you don't want to be wearing shorts and dresses with hairy legs! I felt that it was better than waxing as it was quicker, there was less mess and, as mentioned before, you don't have to wait for your hairs to grow back. I will definitely be using this again and I'm sure as my hairs get thinner it will become far less painful.

BRAUN SILK-ÉPIL 5 5180

I was a bit dubious about using an epilator at first , but now , i wouldn't look back. It was very easy to use , didn't hurt at all and the finishing result was absolutely fantastic. I would recommend the BRAUN SILK-ÉPIL 5 5180 to everyone I know .

smooth silky legs with Braun silk-epil 5

when i first opened the box i fell in love with the colour of this product, purple is a nice girly colour. it was a nice size not too bulky and not too loud either like some others. i thought it might hurt but was pleasantly surprised. it came with a nice cooling gel pack to apply after use which was a nice feeling. ive never had such silky smooth legs. its a great product ill never use a normal razor again.

brilliant for first time user

First time I've ever used an epilator and can honestly say it's fantastic, leaves legs smooth and with up to 4weeks of no hairs can't complain. The cool pack is a brilliant extra as for a first time user it was a strange feeling and did irritate slightly but soon got used to the feeling and using the cool pack afterwards really soothed and cooled my legs. Will definitely carry on using this product
