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.

Summer ready legs

I have never used an epilator before , I have always shaved my legs. I read the instruction manual that came with my braun silk -epil 5. I didn't expect the first try to go smoothly, but I was left flabbergasted. My legs have never been so dmooth and it even cuts the smallest of hair. 3 days later and my lags are still as smooth as when I done them. Anotjer great thing is I am a fake tan user so I don't have to worry about hair apoearing for a while. I have been relling all my friends and family and also my Internet friend's anf family too. All positive. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Silky smooth

I'm usually a shaver and was very excited to learn that I was going to be receiving the epilator.The epilator is very uncomfortable to use as a beginner, but the ice pack is great help.The results are impressive and it does leave your legs silky smooth.I've had waxes in the past and the epilator is just as good if not better than the results I've had previously for my legs being waxed.I don't have a issue with it not being cordless as it still does the same job.I have no issue with it being a two point plug either as your can pick up the adaptor at any local store.I am extremely happy with this product and friends and family are noticing the results and they're interested in the product.

Silky Smooth Legs with Minimum Fuss

The Braun silk Epil 5 is everything my old epilator was and so much more! Its quieter than the original, faster and less painful too. The handy 'button light' on the front makes it easier to see where you are removing the hairs. I love that it has 2 speed settings and is perfect for bikini and arm pits too and with minimal pain. I love the cooling mitt too. I cannot recommend this epilator enough and wish I'd had one years ago with all the shaving scars I have on my legs. Its quick, does an amazing job of giving you smooth legs and the results really do last. In fact I go over my legs probably ever 10 days and it takes but a few minutes! I won't ever be going back to my old epilator now! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A must have investment

Smooth legs for up to four weeks sounds to good to be true but this easy to use, powerful little epilator makes it a reality. No complaints here, perfect for beginners and long time epilator devotees I highly recommend this.
