  1. Braun Silk-épil 5 Wet&Dry unique starter head

    1. Use the unique starter head for the first month.

    The starter head for the first 4 weeks combines epilation and shaving (with Gillette Venus blades) to help you get used to epilation. For best results use in the shower with a shaving or shower gel.

    2. Smooth moves.

    Use with gel/shaving foam so the device glides smoothly over your skin. Epilating in warm water relaxes and smoothes your skin and gives you an even gentler experience. Hold the epilator at a 90 degree angle and move slowly against direction of hair growth. Hold the skin taught and add slight pressure.

    After using the starter head for the first 4 weeks, your skin will now be perfectly used to epilation and you can switch to the epilation head. It removes all the hair at once for up to 4 weeks of smooth skin.

Not slippery when wet.

The epilator is 100% waterproof, so you can use it in the bath and under the shower (and easily clean it under running water). The unique anti-slip grip makes the epilator easy to use when wet – no slips, no risk of cuts.

Up to 100% hair removal in 1 stroke!

Epilate most hairs, shave the rest.

This is how it works in the first 4 weeks: Attach the starter head and use as recommended. Each week it epilates 60% of the hairs, and shaves the rest for a silky smooth finish.
