Great!

I've been using this product for a couple of years now! It's easy to use and it's pretty quick, the only problem with it is that need go over the same area a few times to ensure all hair are removed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

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

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.

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.

No pain, great gain!

I purposely didn't shave my legs for a good few weeks in the anticipation that I would be able to test this! I'm glad I did! Easy to use and hardly any pain, I was expecting quite a bit since previous experiences with others in the past! Smooth legs for my holidays!

Yes, I recommend this product !

smooth removal

I have to say that this was my first time trying one of these & I was a little dubious to say the least.That said, I have to say I was impressed with the overall finish once I had used it. It left my legs hair-free for a much longer period.It does have to be said that this is not a pain-free option, and I did jump a little at the discomfort from it all, but if you can get over this little bit you soon get used to it & legs are left hairless for a far longer period than shaving.
