Virtually pain free

Thanks to the cooling glove and the design of the epilator, the process is fast,easy and virtually pain free. Thanks to the light you can see if you removed all the hair. Unlike some others this one didn't leave my skin red or swollen and it does really remove even the shortest hair. No more cactus legs until you can epilate again!! Yuhu!!

Very easy to use!

I haven't used an eplilator before as I was a bit worried that it would hurt! I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by how little this hurt! It was very very easy to use, quiet and easily removed the hair on my legs. It's been over 3 weeks and I still haven't had to do them again! I am so impressed by this!

Use it

I'm having a great time using this product. It's easy to us. It's not painful. I get really close shave. Doesn't cut very short hairs. Trying to get used to the idea of epilating. [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.

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.

Goodbye hair

Totally new to using epilation. I found the silk epil 5 very easy to use . It is a pity that needs adaptor plug but that was easily solved. I feel cordless would be an even bigger asset to this great little machine but all come aside ....I found it rather painless to use and what an end result .. Long lasting smooth bald !!!!! Skin .. They have thought of all areas with 5 heads..thought of comfort with cooling glove and thought of efficiency with longer lasting hairless skin .The controls are great and as I get a pro I will go to 2. Hair def finer growing back...pity have no sun to show off my hairless smooth legs !!!! Well done Braun and thank you [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

No more 5 o'clock underarm stubble!

I only first tried this product a week ago and I can see an amazing difference in course haired areas. My underarms are softer and less irritated than they've ever been since I've started shaving!! The hairs coming through finer and I'm not needing to use as much deodorant (not too sure why that is but it's a plus!) and the underarm shadow is rapidly clearing up! Didn't hurt anywhere near as much as I expected and now I'd take epilation over shaving any day of the week! Very impressed.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Perfect for Beginners

I'm really impressed with my Braun Silk-Epil 5. It works very well on my thighs where the hair is finer, & although I don't get a silky feel to my calves and shins, it still gets the job done. The pain is shocking at first, but fleeting.The only drawbacks that I've found is that it's quite noisy and I wasn't pleased to have to find a plug in adapter. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone new to epilating. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
