Braun silk-epil 5 'would it be ouch'

I was offered to try the epilator and when It arrived I must admit I was a bit apprehensive about using it for the first time as I had never epilated before and was under the impression it can be very painful and I hate pain The instructions are clear and very easy to follow the most important instruction to follow us to freeze the cooling pack first don't do what I did and try it for the first time without the cooling pack as it's very uncomfortable without Once I froze the cooling pack and left it on the skin area ready to epilate for the required time it was much less uncomfortable and the more I used it the more I got used to it The light on it is a great idea as it helps you see what you are doing and makes stray hairs more visable Days after epilating legs still feel soft and hair free several days later In my opinion once used to it it's much better then shaving although bit more time consuming in the beginning but once you have done your full legs it's just a case of touching up areas for little stray hairs The only down side I could find is that if you don't have a uk adaptor you can't use it straight away as it's supplied with a 2 pin so had to go and buy one before I could try it

Miss Natalie Daly

Never used an epilator before Was very apprehensive. On asking friends they had not tried one either but had been told it is very painful which made me even more anxious. . Well tried it and must say. Was not as bad as I thought the cooling gel is amazeballs. My legs are very smooth and have used a few times now; my hairs start to grow back after about 3 weeks but can definitely notice also that my hair is a lot finer. One thing to note though is that since been using this product. I have had a few ingrown hairs so regular exfoliation and moisturising is a must. All round great little gadget. I have recommended the ptouct to my friends and family.

Epilator FTW!

I was a bit apprehensive at first and I was worried about using it as I'm a bit of a softy. The first time I used it I didn't use the cooling pack it was uncomfortable. The next few times I used it with the cooling glove and it was painless and I feel like I'm used to it now, even without the pack I can tackle strays. It's great for really short hairs and when the hair is removed it leaves the skin soft and smooth for around 3-4 weeks. I did need to go and buy a uk adapter for this from poundland as we don't have a 2 pin socket. It comes with different heads for different areas which is great! Overall I would highly recommend this!

The best epilator for me

I've tried Silk-épil 5 and it has exceeded my expectations. For me the most important thing was for how long I wouldn't need any kind of epilation before my hair starts to re-grow. With this product it was 3 weeks, which is unheard of. This is not the first time I have used the Braun products. In fact I've had several Silk-épil epilators and other Braun gadgets throughout the years. This is the best one so far. For me Braun products are the best products on the market. Because they always deliver. Because they always give you the best value for money. Their design is always ergonomic and pleasing to the eye. I've shared my device with my sister and my best friend. At some point I wasn't sure I was getting it back - it was so popular. I would recommend it to anyone without any hesitation. The best Braun product to date for me!

legs have never been smoother!

i've always been very apprehensive of using an epilator, (I'm a bit of a wuss on the pain factor) but i needed a quicker way than the usual shave and wanted it to last a lot longer too so i thought id give this product a go. Its fantastic there are different heads that you can change for different areas and it was very quick easy to set up and use, there are different speed settings so you can change it to suit you. looks great not to heavy to hold. the only thing i would say is make sure you have a two pin adapter for it to work. other than that an absolutely fantastic product highly recommended.
