Designed for efficient, long-lasting and extra gentle hair removal, the new Silk-épil 5 is ideal for women who are new to epilation. It includes Close-grip technology with 40 tweezers that even remove short and fine hair. It also has a comfort system with massage rollers that stimulate the skin, plus a cooling glove to soothe after epilation.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Great!! Would 100% recommend!!

I usually wax and was getting fed up with waiting for regrowth so friends advised me to try an epilator. Read a few reviews and overall recommendations were to buy Braun and no cheaper version of the product as werent likely to work. The product was the cheapest of the range as i wanted to try it out first. Overall this product is GREAT!!!! It leaves my legs as smooth as shaving but with the same lasting effect as waxing. Yes it hurts but honestly every beauty regime that works does, and it's worth the pain!! Remember its lots of little tweezers so its not going to be a massage. No pain no gain and this product is a absolute must have for all ladies!!! My legs do get slightly red after use but again this is the same as waxing/tweezing etc don't do it just before you go out!! Fantastic buy and have no regrets many thanks!!!

Good product

I waxed my legs twice before epilating. It was easier that way and nearly painless, which is great! But threr is one negative thing about it- it takes ages to epilate. I have to go over the same place few times to get rid of all hair. It takes me about one hour to epilate my legs and I have to repit it every few days. Maybe epilator with 40 tweezers will be quiker?

Yes, I recommend this product !

3170 silk epil

This is very poor by comparison to the silk epil7 I have had for the last 7 years. There is only 1 head with rollers and it scratches your legs as you use it. It is worth spending more money, i wish i had! Braun customer service consists of email response saying phone us! Not much service!

very sore to use

i got this thinking it would be great for my legs well big mistake when using it, it feels like its ripping your skin.Needless to say i only used it once very disapointing. I have used other braun products with no complaints but this is just not worth buying unless you like pain.
