Amazing product

I received this product from Braun and I was so excited to use it as iv never used anything like this before. The product didn't let my expectations down as it down everything it said on the box plus more. It hurt a lil bit but after a while I got used to it and it has left my legs feeling silky and smooth and my hairs on my legs have not come back even after 3 days after I last used it which is amazing. I will be using this product from now on and chucking all my razors away. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A Must Have

I Was very excited to try the epilator as I have never used any other products like this apart from razors, The product arrived quickly. It came with batteries inserted the only down fall is that it is shavers socket charger as I have not got one. it hurts abit but you get used to it after a while, I love the fact it left my legs feeling silky smooth.

Hair not gone!

To show how dedicated I am to BzzAgent I haven't shaved my legs in nearly 3 weeks in expectation of this test! I'm a redhead so I don't have much hair on my legs and it is relatively slow-growing. I usually shave my legs once a week and I've never epilated before so I was keen to give it a go! Well the Braun Silk-epil arrived today so with trepidation I duly put it on to charge for an hour until the little green light stopped flashing to indicate it had charges (full charge takes an hour and gives 30 minutes of use approximately) and then bared my ankle to its epilating head and gingerly switched on the machine- it made quite a loud whirring sound and the pain was uncomfortable but bearable- I'd say 2-3/10 depending on where you use it although I was disappointed it didn't leave my legs silky smooth on the first pass which I'd expect it to do especially as it's more uncomfortable than shaving so there need to be more positives for me! It can be used wet or dry so I may try again in the shower rather than on a dry leg! My husband tried it out of his hairy legs and it did leave a bald patch- he likened the pain to needles pricking his leg and rated it 4/10 for pain (I've included a photo of my husbands slightly epilated calf!) I am going to give it another go as according to the leaflet it gets easier with repeated use however I think it will take some convincing for me to change from shaving to epilating!

Very odd sensation to a razor user!!

Was very excited to try an epilator as I've only ever used razors and the occasional waxing. The product arrived very quickly and packaged well. It came with batteries inserted and an optional wall charger with head cleaner. Firstly, it hurt. Then I tried again and it hurt BUT if you keep the epilator moving it doesn't hurt anymore! Can't say it gave me that silky smooth feeling like a razor shave or wax would but noticeably less hair was on my leg! I have very dry skin so will update when the area i tested stop stinging!! I tried it on dry skin and not in the shower, which the product is capable of being used in! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Im converted!

Love the packaging of this product. Looks great. I opened it up to find that there is only a shaver socket charger. Major fail as i dont have a shaver socket but luckily it was already part charged enough for me to test. Once i figured it out i gave it a go it definately pulls even the shortest of hair out and sure makes your legs smooth one thing i would deffo want know know before i got the product. The top of it is a bit difficult toget back on once you take it apart but all in all a fab product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Totally worth the pain

When I was offered a freebie from bzz agent to try Braun epilator I was shocked and thought what a result. I have enjoyed trying the Braun epilator but I did find that it was quite painful don't know if this is normal as hadn't used an epilator before but second time around I tried it wet rather than dry and this was a bit more comfortable but still a bit painful. I can truly say though that I had never felt results like it my legs where totally smooth no missed bits u sometimes find with razor and would defiantly try other gaggets like this and recommend any lady to give it a go as results are Defo worth it.

good and mighty

I received this epilator free from braun to try and this was my first one so was a bit of an experience! everywhere online i read is dead painful and to be honest it was the first few seconds (reminded me of tatoo pain) but after less than a minute the skin got quite numb and although it was not pleasant was not painful anymore. Now waxing is much worst for me as well as shaving. the last one is not painful but not as effective and much more dangerous for me. it took around 15 minutes for me to do legs and arms which is great! very wise is the tip of using it in the evening as you will find your skin full of red bumps and will take overnight to calm down with the help of a moisturising/sooting cream. i will suggesting to friends an family as i think is a great little investment [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It's here!!

So this morning i recieved my FREE Braun silk-èpil 5 5-511 from Braun. When i was invited to try this epilator i couldn't wait because i had never used one before so i purposely left my leg hair to grown. Compact packaging and an easy to hold epliator that comes with a charger and handy little brush to clean after use. The epilator itself has 2 setting vut since this was new to me i firstly used the lower setting. It does say to expect some sensitivity which i did feel but it was nothing unbearable and i found myself pressing the faster setting. It actually works! I found that using the little cleaning brush to push up the smaller hairs helped the epliator to pick them up. I have taken a picture of half of my leg that has just been eplitated so that you can see the diffence! #LovingThis #Braun #SilkEpil [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Uncomfortable to start but amazing

I received a braun silk epil 5 to try free from braun. I'm new to epilating and was scared to try it at first and had to build myself up to give it ago. I must admit it 'hurt' when I did it but you get used to it after a while. I was amazed by how good it is. I defiantly recommend doing it in the evening as your legs will be covered in red blotches and be sensitive to the touch after doing them. I moisturised as advised and it did help my legs 'calm' down. When I woke in the morning my legs were still blotchy so I decided to keep them covered. It has 28 tweezers and works fast, I did need to get my husband to do the backs of my legs because I couldn't get to some places and he could see better. It has 2 speeds but I only used the first one which was recommended for beginners. It's great that it can be used in the shower too, I haven't tried it yet. Might be worth a try. The epil silk 5 is easy to clean and comes with a little brush and can be washed using water too. It is noisy but not overly noisy, maybe don't watch your favourite program while using your epil silk. I really like the rubber grip and makes it comfortable to hold.
