I have attendet as a testpilot true Smartson and i has the possible to buy silk- epil 3 to a reduced price. But it was difficult to get all Hair removed from my leg. The leg didnt get so smooth as I want it. I had to utse a razor after the epilator. The great thing is that it didnt hurt to much to idé it and was easy to use. Easy instruktions.
No, I do not recommend this product.
I recieved my braun silk epil 3 directly from flora for FREE and i couldnt be happier. It arrived well packaged and when opening the box was excited to see what i think could be every girls best friend.The braun silk epil 3 is a great size,nice and compact and comes with a seperate head so it can also be used as a shaver as well as an epilator. It comes with a small brush for easy cleaning and a mains power lead,the only downfall is that it has a 2 pin plug so requires a uk adaptor plug.The product was fantastic for the removal of leg hair,underarm and bikini line and i was surprised at how pain free it was.I would 100% recommend the bruan silk epil 3 to any woman,definatly better than shaving and waxing.

I'd like to add to the first review I did on the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 (to read my full review see here https://www.bzzagent.co.uk/pc/braun-silkepil-3270/gallery/item/braun-silk-epil-3-3270-good-on-the-go). After further using the Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 that I received free from Braun I've found that my skin has got a lot more used to the epilator, this seems to be discouraging the hair from growing back as quick and I'm also getting a smoother result. I would say this product gets better the more you use it and the more your skin gets used to being epilated. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
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.]
I recieved my braun silk epil 3 3270 from Braun for free to test out there new product. I liked the compact packaging as I am into recycling. I point for everyone should know as when buying this product you may need to purchase an adapted as it only comes with European 2 prongs not the British 3 prong socket. Having 2 different speeds was a blessing especially when epilating my under arms it was quite tender so slower speed was better to use resulting in silky soft skin as a result. My product had a light to help u see finer hairs whilst epilating. My only critasism is it cannot be used cordless I had to always have it plugged in and cable sometimes got in the way. Highly recommended product I have advised friends and family to try. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
After receiving this for free from Flora and trying the epilating out last night, I left a very honest review as I wiped the tears from my eyes caused by the sheer pain.Then I woke up this morning and thought, "oh, there's another attachment. Maybe I'll try that!?"And oh my, much much better. Didn't get the hair quite as well on my milk bottles (legs) but for the fine hairs on my chin (and the stubborn dark ones) this second shaver attachment worked an absolute treat! I've always been really paranoid about that area. Well, no more thanks to this Braun SilkEpil! Bye bye tweezers(Although, as per my previous review...the razors will be staying for those more sensitive areas!!) [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.

First of all thank you to Flora for sending me this Braun Silk-epil 3 3270 epilator to test out! I have used Epilators in the past (The Braun Silk Epil 5 was the last one I used I believe) so have some experience with them but I will be focusing on the Braun Silk Epil 3 which I received. These are my first impressions after a couple of uses, I will right a further review after testing the product more thoroughly for a few weeks.First of all in the box you get the main epilator itself, a shaver head with removable trimmer cap, a little cleaning brush, power lead and instructions.The instructions are pretty straight forward and easy to follow. To use the epilator you simply plug it in, choose between two intensity settings (I for gentler, slower epilation for more sensitive areas and II for stronger epilation) and then glide the epilator over clean, dry, taut skin at about 90 degree angle.The Epilator head has 20 rotating tweezers which grab and pull out your unwanted hairs and the interchangeable shaver head has a 'shaving foil' (I have never used an electric shaver before and do not really understand how this works) and an attachable cap to allow to trim your hair (to about half a cm).So my first thoughts upon unpackaging was slight disappointment as the power lead it comes with ends with a two pin plug designed for a shaver socket. I do not have a shaver socket in my house. Luckilly I do have an adaptor I could use however the power lead itself is not very long (about a metre and a half) so I had to use an extension cord in order to use when standing in my bathroom. Presumably as shaver sockets tend to be higher on the wall than regular power sockets this would not be a problem for most people, but if, like me, you don't have a shaver socket in your bathroom then it makes things a lot trickier.The epilator machine itself looks quite attractive and feminine in it's white and pink colour scheme and round shape. It fits really nicely in my hand and has some little bumps and things which make it easier to grip.So onto the actual usage.It's very very simple to use. You just plug it in then there is a sliding switch which you slide up to one of two intensity levels and it starts immediately. When you turn it on it makes an incredibly loud and unattractive buzzing sound which lasts as long as you use it. The noise is a bit like a higher pitched waste disposal, it is less aggressive on level I or with the shaver head. There is also a small light which comes on automatically which is supposed to help you see the hairs, this is more helpful than I thought it would be as it acts like a tiny spotlight and really helps highlight any single hairs you may have missed. To change between the shaver and epilator heads there are two little nubs on either side of the machine which you squeeze to remove the current head and then then new one just clicks in.The shaver head works very well. The trimmer cap crops the hair very neatly (if the hair you want to epilate is long you can use this to get it down to a size the epilator can manage) and if you remove it yu get a nice close shave. I don't understand what the foil does as as far as I could see the hair was shaved by some little sharp, moving, metal teeth things (like an electric hair trimmer has, no razor blades). You do have t be careful not to get nicked by those teeth though, especially on looser or more curved portions of skin.Used as an epilator I was actually pleasantly surprised by how well it worked. it claims to work on hairs between about 2 and 5 mm. When I first tried to use it I thought my hairs were about 2mm if not over but couldn't really get it to work. I waited a couple of days and tried again and this time it worked great. You do need to do a couple of passes over each section of skin to get rid of all the hairs and I had a few stubborn ones which needed additional passes, and you need to glide the machine relatively slowly over your skin (15-20 seconds from ankle to knee for instance) so it does take longer than just shaving. But after use my skin is so, so soft and smooth, I love how they feel. Also there is something, to me at least, very satisfying about seeing the hairs disappear.One drawback I found was that as the epilator head is completely static (the shaver and epilator heads are sort of sunken into the main machine, there is no joints, axels or so on) so it does not move on it's own at all, only where you move it. This means it doesn't 'hug' or glide over your skin very well. On gentle curves, like my calves, this wasn't a problem at all, it did flow nicely over the skin. But on more drastically curved skin, like my armpit (and particularly the place where my armpit sort of creases from body to arm) it 'skips' over skin. This both leaves patches of hair and can be quite scary if you're not expecting it.It is very important to keep your skin pulled taut when using the epilator. On my legs or large plains of skin it is not so much a problem as the skin is quite tight anyway, pulling it just makes the machine's job easier. But on armpits or more curved or loose skin then if you don't keep the skin pulled tight then at best it just doesn't work and at worst my skin got 'bitten' by the machine a couple of times. When this happened it didn't break my skin but hurt a lot and left red marks. Keeping the skin tight also lessens the pain of epilation.So about that pain. Having used epilators in the past I knew what to expect but for new users here's my thoughts. The first time you use an epilator, and this one is no exception, it will hurt A LOT. It's sort of a feeling like being pricked with pins and at the same time having your hair pulled. It's not fun. However the longer the session of epilation goes on the less painful it is. I imagine your skin sort of gets used to the sensation. Further more on future sessions of epilation it hurts even less, possibly because the hair folicle gets weaker. Even at it's worse I find the pain of epilation much less horrible than waxing, I think this is because I have sensitive skin and while epilating pulls the hairs out the same as waxing it does not affect the surrounding skin at all. Afterwards my skin is left sensitive but a soft as it was before but when I've waxed in the past my skin has been damaged and left very dry. This epilator was no more or less painful than any I've tried in the past. There is a little pink cap on the epilator head which has these 'rollers' which are supposed to massage the skin and make the process gentler. But I actually found these really painful. The rollers are spikey and made of hard plastic, they dug into my skin instead of just rolling over it. Luckilly this part was removable.So those were my initial thoughts after a few uses of the machine. To sum up I think that for removing hair from the legs this is brilliant but for armpits or other curvier parts of the body it has some problems which make it a lot harder to use.

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.]
