I'm not the type of person who removes body hair very often as I find it very boring and pointless, so this review comes from the point of view of someone who, if they have to remove body hair, want it quick/painless and hassle free! Thank you Braun for letting my try the Silk-epil 3 3270
First of all, seeing as I don't buy electric shavers very often, I didn't realise it would only come with a 2 pin plug. I don't have a socket like this in my bathroom, and thinking of the bathrooms I'm usually in, they don't either. Luckily my husband had an adaptor I could borrow, but personally I'd prefer rechargeable/battery powered or at least the fact it only comes with a 2 pin plug written on the outside of the box.
After reading the instructions, it was recommended that as I had lengthy leg hair, I shave it off and wait a week before trying the epilator head. So I started off by using the shaver head. I spent a long time trying to shave the hair fully off but it only seemed to take the hair off down to about 1 or 2 mm, if it was supposed to take the hair off completely then it wasn't good enough. After about 20 minutes going over and over my legs I gave up as I was bored and fed up.
A week later, as instructed, I tried the epilator head. It certainly did hurt but wasn't all that bad, however repeated slow sweeps up my leg was not removing all the hair. I tried a couple of times, with the same result, pain but not all the hair removed even though I followed the instructions to the letter. I have very fine body hair, so it might be that it's too fine for this epilator to grip that well.
So for me it's a fairly average bit of kit, I'm constrained to sitting on the floor by the wall socket in order to use it, and it didn't fully do the job for me, but that might be down to my hair type. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Having never used an epilator before I was very eager to receive this product free from Bzzagent 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 adaptor 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 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 and Bzzagent for giving me the opportunity to test this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I've now been using my silk-epil 3 3270 that I got free from Braun for a few weeks.
I have come to realise that is only keeps me hair free for about a week but this may be due to the fact I have very course, dark hair. Due to the fact it takes me so much time to remove my hair leg with the epilator it makes it not really worth it and it is much easier to spend a few minutes using a wet razor when I am in the bath. The fact it has to be plugged into the mains is also an inconvenience to me but may not be an issue to others.
That being said, if using an epilator was my first choice hair removal method then I would recommend the silk-epil 3 3270. The price is great considering you also have the normal razor attachment and I really love the little light on it which makes it much easier to see which spots you have missed. It does hurt but the more you use it the less you notice the pain and I found that if I used it whilst watching TV or doing something else to distract me then I hardly felt it at all.
So in summary, an epilator is not for me but to anyone who likes using them I would definitely recommend the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I was excited to try the Braun Silk-epil 3 for free as I've always been a bit too worried about pain to take the plunge and actually buy an epilator. The fact that it has an interchangeable electric razor head was a real bonus.
I actually like the fact that you don't have to keep the product charged, as i forget to keep things charged, it just plugs into a bathroom 2 pin socket.
I stated by using the electric razor and was really pleased with how quick and easy it was. No stripping off, lathering up, and faffing around with a razor. I could tidy up quickly, with no cuts or shaving rash and dash out to take my daughter to swimming. Admittedly, it's not as smooth a finish as with a normal razor, so my legs were still a bit prickly, but it was good enough.
What was really handy was that the instruction booklet told you the ideal length of hair to epilate, so I waited for it to grow to the suggested length, and then gritted my teeth to try it. I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it might, it was quick, and although I was a bit blotchy, the redness went down quickly. It's been about a week and I'm just starting to get some regrowth now.
I would definitely recommend this Braun Silk-epil 3 as a quick and convenient way to get rid of unwanted hair. I love how versatile it is with its interchangeable epilator/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.]
Recieved my free Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 as part of the trail. I was excited to use it and once i opened the box I immediately realised I couldn't use it straight away as only came with a 2 prong plug. Once i remembered to buy the adapter i tried it straight away. I may he a whimp but the epilator head really hurt and i reverted to the shaver head as couldnt stand the pain. Once using the shaver head it was fine and didnt hurt. Will definitely be using it in the future but as a shaver and not as an epilator! Definitely less hassel than using a razor or waxing.

I was excited to test the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 which I received free from Flora, but was initially a bit disappointed when I opened the box to find a shaver plug but no adapter. Perhaps most people have these already but I didn't which meant I had to wait a couple of days to buy one before I could try the epilator out.Plug issue behind me, I found the Silk-epil to be a good size, shape and weight for me to hold and use easily. And, although I didn't think I'd see the point in the little light, it's actually quite bright and really helps to highlight any little hairs you might have missed.Convenience of the little light aside, the results from the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 were very much as I've experienced with epilators in the past; it does what it says on the tin, and this model is (unfortunately but unsurprisingly) no quicker or more comfortable - in my experience - than others.The Silk-epil doesn't disappoint as a shaver/trimmer either, and these functions are very easy and comfortable to use!I've given the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 a rating of 4/5 stars for it being an all round good looking and well designed epilator that does the job it's supposed to pretty efficiently. I will definitely continue to use it, and it may well replace my razor entirely!The slight down sides were that I would have preferred a proper plug, a little bag to put the attachments/accessories in once once out of the packaging, and - ideally - for it to be rechargeable so the wire didn't get in the way during usage (and perhaps so that I could take it places with me to act as a shaver).

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.]
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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
