I recieved the Braun epilator for free and was excited to try it out. At first I plugged it in to charge but when I unplugged to use it in the bathroom I realised it wasn't battery operated what was extremely disappointing, so I had to epilate my legs in the kitchen. I found that the epilator removed the majority of the hairs however there was a few hairs remaining mostly fine ones but did require a top up wet shave also. My partner also used to to remove random stray hairs on his shoulders and chest. He found it ideal for removing them stray hairs, he also used the shaver adaptor to trim the remaining hairs and left a neat finish. We both agreed that the use of the Braun epilator was exstreamly painful to use and had to do it in small movements and areas at a time. The light that was on the epilator didn't benefit us during the use and be believe was more of a gimmick. However we will be using it again just not on a regular basis due to the inconvenience of where we have to plug it in. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Soo I was lucky enough to receive my free my trial of the new Braun Silk-epil 3, in my quest for smooth summer skin I was excited to trial this out, smooth skin for WEEKS sounds pretty amazing given my usual shaving I method needs to be carried out every 1-3 days through out summer, this devise could potentially last a whole holiday abroad, pretty impressive!
The box itself, actually looks a bit sexy and mysterious! It looks attractive and I am imaging a good quality product to be inside. The outside of the box doesn't hold too much information, literally 3 phrases in a million different languages, I actually don't think I have ever seen so many translations on a box packaging before!
After finally getting into the box I discover that you need a 2-pin shaving adapter plug for this devise, I think this could be a deal breaker for a lot of people, and quite annoying as there is no mention of this on the box (I think this should be mentioned at the side along with the head information), I have moved house 7 times and my current flat is the first one with an adapter like this, so luckily this time I'm good! The devise itself is quite small and petite and feels quite nice to hold on your hand, I also quite like that this is in pink, a magpie for any link devise!! The plastic does feel a teeny bit cheap in my opinion, I was expecting something a bit more premium feeling.
I plugged the epilator in expecting this to be a chargeable devise, having played around a little bit (as again nothing mentioned in the manual) realised it has to remain plugged in whilst using. Whilst the cord is very long, this is a huge inconvenience, my bathroom is just so tiny I have to pirch on my loo seat and squeeze my leg up on the bath, not the comfortable scenario I had hoped for!
So, after reading the manual, instructions seem really clear (minus charging situation) I feel ready to go! I waited around a week after shaving to make sure my leg hair was at 'optimum length', turned the devise on and was surprised at how bright the little light was, the epilator sound is pretty loud and then the nerves kicked it! I double checked the instructions once more (mental note-taking start from the bottom up, massaging rollers, make sure skin is straight & leg stretched..) and then the modern day torturing devise touched my leg!!
Now, I thought I had a pretty good pain threshold, but this was something else! I managed to do the tops and sides of my leg bit the back of the knee and ankle areas just hurt me so much, and I couldn't even face trying the top of my leg/thigh area. The areas I could manage I did most if not all of the hairs out, though due to the pain level I'm left with a patchy result! I also didn't really feel anything from the massaging rollers! I do have sensitive skin so I am unsure if this is why it hurt so bad, though I have had tattoos on my legs and go for a Brazilian hot wax once a month, this is by far more painful, maybe it's psychological because you have to build up the courage to do it yourself.. I have to say I much prefer the latter.. Closing my eyes and letting someone else quickly do it for me, this way was slow and painful!
It took over 24hours for my legs to stop being red, unfortunately I just do not think this technique is for me! Perhaps as with waxing, it gets better with time.. But with the option to painlessly remove hair in a couple of minutes with a razer in a shower, I'm finding it hard to find the will and reasoning to commit to the epilator. I think this devise is like marmite, you'll either love it or hate it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
when I received my free Silk-epil 3 from Braun I was really keen to try it out. I read the instructions and realised I was going to have wait for some hair regrowth before I would be able to use it. I waited as stated, which I found quite hard as I am usually keen to shave my legs every couple of days!! When I first started to use the epilator I found it quite painful, even on my legs in the first setting! I did persevere and after the third attempt I began to get used to the feeling and the pain became not so noticeable - allowing me to finish epilating! I was really pleased I kept trying because although my skin went a little blotchy and red after use it quickly faded and gave a much less reaction than shaving. A week after use and my legs are still feeling hairless!! I am definitely going to be epilating more and shaving a lot less! I found the epilator easy to use, very light and the light addition is very useful especially if you use your epilator in the evening. I did find being plugged in a little restrictive, but at least I didn't have to remember to charge it up after each use and you won't have to worry about it running out of battery!! Using the massage head on the epilator before and after epilating also improved my epilating experience. I will definitely be using my epilator instead of shaving from now on. I wish I had tried one sooner! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Thank you for the amazing opportunity to trial such an amazing product!
The first use was a little painful which I expected as friends have used epilators in the past and have found the experience unpleasant! However the second time I used this product I was very pleased with it it didn't hurt and the results are great smooth and long lasting! Well done brain what an outstanding product. I will recommend to friends and family! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I was really excited to receive the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 free from Braun as it had been years since I had tried an epilator.
My first thoughts were that the box looked really professional , this gave me confidence in the product and if I had bought it from a shop it would certainly have made me drawn to it.
When I opened the product I realised that the epilator requires a razor adaptor plug which is not supplied, this was not mentioned on the box and although this may have been obvious to some I do think it should have been on the box.
The instructions were clear and concise and I was really impressed to see that as well as an epilator is also has a normal razor attachment.
I was very impressed when I first tried the epilator, of course it hurt but this is to be expected but the more I used it the less the pain bothered me and I quickly got use to it. One thing different on this product to the epilator I tried years ago was the light on it. This meant that is was much easier to see the hairs and detect where you still needed to go.
I found that the epilator did not make my legs as smooth as a wet razor does but I certainly remain hair free for longer.
I also used the razor part under my arms and to shorten my leg hair before using the epilator, this worked very well and there were no problems at all.
The only negative I have found is that it does not work with batteries as well, this meant that you always had to be close to an electrical outlet when using which was sometimes inconvenient but was something that could be worked around.
I would certainly recommend this epilator to anyone else and I will continue to use it instead of my wet razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Hi everyone so I thought I would just drop in and do a follow up review on the Braun silk epil 3.
This is a follow up review approx one week on. The box of the Braun silk epil says 'the easy way to smooth skin for weeks' I wouldn't find this statement completely accurate as my legs, armpits and bikini line need shaving again as I currently resemble a wookie. However this does not bother me as shaving once a week in my opinion is very good anyway, as I was shaving every 2 days to keep it up. At least I don't have to shave constantly in hairy bath water that's gone cold. I can sit there quite comfortably now with a cuppa in one hand and the Braun silk epil 3 in the other.
So overall I still recommend this product and the smart light is just the most amazing little thing about this gadget for that accurate even shave. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Wow I received this Epilator as a freebie from Braun and I love it. The design is great and ease of use.
You need to try this Epilator as it's great and not as painful as I 1st thought I'm. Sure other customers feel the same way.
It's so easy to use and the results are great another great product from a reliable company

First of all I must start off by saying thank you for giving me the chance to try out this product for free. I have never used an epilator before but have recently been thinking of buying one. My experience of using this has been really positive. I have fast & thick hair regrowth so when I have shaved my legs, within a couple days, the hairs have started growing back. Not the case with this! I shaved them over a week ago with the epilator & so far no sign of regrowth! My skin is sensitive to pain is well & I found as long as I used the massage blade properly first, I would have a relatively pain-free epilating experience. I found the light on the epilator very useful to guide me whilst shaving too. Over-all I found this product very useful & efficient & would definitely recommend to others :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I received the Braun Silk•épil 3 3270 epilator for free from Braun last week and took it away on holiday with me to experiment.Nicely packaged (as braun things are normally) and looks groovy in pink. Containing two different heads I used the massaging one first. I have used one of these when about 20 years ago and used it once and the pain was soooo bad i gave up. I thought i'd try on my legs first which is where i'd used it before. As the head massaged the leg at the same time it wasn't as painful as it could be. I used it in the a slow circular motion and that seemed to be less painful.I then moved to my chin and it was really good and done the trick really well. The massaging motion just takes the edge off the pain.It also has a light which is really really good. Love this feature. Makes it much easier to see in your shadow. Really bright.Really quick and easy to charge up.One thing I'd say it might be better if it could be waterproof. The stimulation of a shower on your skin might take more discomfort away.Finally i used it on my arm hair which i shave anyway. This did hurt quite a bit more and i could only do a little bit. Afterwards my arm was very red and spotty but that only lasted until morning when it had gone. Photo attached of the morning after.I'd recommend it.

Having never used an epilator before I was very eager to receive this product free from Braun to trial and give it a go. I had always looked up reviews etc for various epilators as a cheaper alternative to longer lasting smooth legs. I used to wax at home and it was painful but I didn’t mind that so much it was the wax not pulling the hair out by the root that bothered me so much after going through all the pain for nothing!
The packaging is as expected with the name of the product and a clear window so it can be seen. Mine is a nice white and pale pink colour which I found attractive. I opened the product and there were several parts to it and an instruction booklet. I found the instructions to be clear especially to someone like myself who hasn't used a product like this before. I also liked the fact there were images so I could see how different parts fitted together. To get started its very straight forward. The plug needs attaching to the appliance and there is another head which can be replaced as a razor as oppose to the epilator.
From the initial look at the epilator it looked good, nice and small fits in your hand well, you can get a good grip of it. The only down side was the fact that the plug was a European 2 point plug, which doesn't fit our 3 point sockets, Luckily I had an adapter so I could use this straight away. The lead is a fantastic length, quite a few I've tried in the past have had tiny leads which make it difficult in finding a plug socket at home to sit by especially if there high up the wall but with the Braun Silk•epil 3 3270 this isn't a problem. The built in light is also a plus so you can see if you miss any tiny hairs. The changeable heads come in very handy as does the trimmer cap, it gives you choices based on different types of hair length on different parts of the body. The two speed settings are great for sensitive areas as there is minimal pain but still great results.
The epilator looks to me like an electric shaver until I noticed the little tweezers in it. This was when I started to feel nervous. I am a big wimp when it comes to pain. I kept telling myself the smooth legs will be worth all the pain. After my bath I was ready to plug it in. After both legs were done I could feel how smooth my legs were. The epilator is easy to maintain and clean as all parts are easy to remove just by pressing two buttons on either side; this is the same way that the heads change from epilator tweezers to shaver head.
I've already recommended this product to many friends and will continue to do so. A few days later and my legs are still smooth so I am definitely noticing a difference from shaving. The results were brilliant I have to say. Very smooth and been someone who has to shave every day, 3 days later they are as smooth as they were when I first epilated. For me this is brilliant. Whilst it may take longer to epilate than shave, I am saving far more time not having to shave every day. Whilst it was a slight inconvenience having a 2 pin socket, it’s not the end of the world. It is acknowledged that this is a product that will sell internationally, so the plug cannot suit all countries. One suggestion would be to highlight the fact that an adapter would be needed for use in the UK would be very helpful. Many thanks to Braun for giving me the opportunity to test this product.
