Braun silk epil 5 epilator

I had never used an epilator before so I was really excited when it arrived and couldn't wait to try it out. The only down side was it needed an adaptor which I had to go and purchase before I could use it but other than I can't fault it. When I first tried it out I wasn't expecting it to hurt as much as it did but it was a sensation I got used to very quickly especially with the soothing gel pack that was provided. My legs felt so smooth and soft afterwards it made me wonder why I had not tried this product sooner. I might just add that I had to go over a few patches a couple of times as it didn't remove all hairs straight away but this was with the help of the light feature that made me able to see every hair. I will defiantly continue to use this epilator and I have recommended this to all my friends and family 10/10 all round

Braun Silk-Epil 5 Epilator - Great product!

I have never used an epilator before and have shaved my legs for years so some pain when using it was to be expected. The cooling glove provided did help to soothe this so I could persevere with it. I was very pleased with the results as it does get every hair and even the very short ones so you don't have to wait for it to grow long before you can use it again, which is definitely an advantage in the summer as you don't want to be wearing shorts and dresses with hairy legs! I felt that it was better than waxing as it was quicker, there was less mess and, as mentioned before, you don't have to wait for your hairs to grow back. I will definitely be using this again and I'm sure as my hairs get thinner it will become far less painful.

The amazing Braun silk epil 5

i was a little nervous at first at trying it, but it really isnt bad,it hurt at first but i soon got used to it. It was really easy to use. After i finished both legs they were a little sore but the ice pack which i got with it soon eased it and i got a little rash which i thought i would as it is pulling your hairs out. But over all im very happy with this product and i reconmend it.

Now when I opened this and looked at it I was apprehensive. I wasn't expecting to have put gel pack in freezer first this means have to prepare your self. You must follow the instructions,if you don't you won't get an enjoyable experience. So eventually all prepared I started to use the epilator I was so surprised no pain which I was expectingI got an occasional pulling feeling.when didn't hold the skin taut. The results where wonderful. I hadn't got a shaver plug so you do need one of these need to buy with product

silk-epil 5 (legs)

I was quite excited to be accepted onto my first bzz campaign to test the silk-epil 5 epilator. Once I found out I researched the product and spoke with friends who also have the product. I heard nothing but praise for the silk epil.I received my kit quite quickly via the post and once I had purchased a shaver adaptor I was ready to try it out. As a first time user I used the cooling pad to take away some of the sensitivity on my shins although the rest of my legs were fine. Can't wait to use the product again and hopefully won't be as sensitive as time goes on.I would and have recommended this product to people I've spoken to as it's a great investment vs shaving and makes the legs look so much smoother.

Silk epil 5

I absolutely love this item. Before buying this item I'd like to know if there is a 3 pin plug version as mine was a 2 pin and I had to buy an adapter. Other than that product is amazing. My legs are really smooth. The product itself is amazing one downfall is mine needs to be connected to the mains to allow it to work. At first I found it slightly sharp but after all I'm a wimp but once I got the hang it was fab would define toy recommend especially for those silky summer legs and it doesn't cut you like a razor does overall 10/10 the added extras are also a bonus

Silk-epil 5

I have used this for the first time today and I must say so far it is by far better than any other hair removal equipment I have used before now it's just the waiting to see how long hair free will last!!!

Silk-Epil 5 Epilator

First impressions were good, well designed with removable heads for easy cleaning, cleaning brush, nice box, cooling gel pack with glove and a handy bag to keep it all in.It has two speeds, the higher one is rather aggressive and caused slight discomfort but I think you would get used to it after continued use and the skin adapts to the process. Nowhere near as bad as I expected though pain wise.Downside is that it comes with a two pin bathroom safety plug which I don't have a socket for, so I had to buy a plug converter. Not really a major problem it just delayed being able to use it.

smooth silky legs with Braun silk-epil 5

when i first opened the box i fell in love with the colour of this product, purple is a nice girly colour. it was a nice size not too bulky and not too loud either like some others. i thought it might hurt but was pleasantly surprised. it came with a nice cooling gel pack to apply after use which was a nice feeling. ive never had such silky smooth legs. its a great product ill never use a normal razor again.

Silk-epil 5

Although I am happy with the end results once I used the Silk-epil 5 I do find it quite uncomfortable to use. It probably just takes some getting used too! It did do the job nice and quick though, it got rid of short and long hairs. The long cord is very handy, so is the little light on the epilator. I will defiantly continue to use the Silk-epil 5.
