My beautician was surprised whenI asked for just one leg to be waxed I wanted to compare the Braun silk-epil to waxing , well it was easy to use loved the ice pack which is great to used before you start . after 4 weeks went back to have my legs waxed again and found that the leg which I used the Braun was as good as the waxed leg!!! But, the only downfall I found when using the Braun again you must make sure that you keep the skin taut as the skin can get caught in the head of the Braun.If the Braun shaver had a three pin plug you would be able to use this anywhere anytime but having to reply on a shaver plug which is a pain, the upside is you don't have to worry about making apt for waxing.The cleansing brush for the face was ok but felt it didn't completely cleanse my face, if sold separately would not purchase it.
I've always been so scared to use Epilators, just the sound of the machine and the thought of using it has always put me off. I've heard a few horror stories too - albeit from someone who may just be over the top.The product states that it can remove even the shortest of all hairs. It comes with an ice pack to help soothe the area and a cleansing brush for the face. This time I thought I would try out the epilator itself.On charging the Silk-épil 5 up, I was surprised it didn't make the noisy sound most of Epilators do, and it did not put me off using it.My hair was relativity short, and I thought this was the best time to test it out, to see if it really did work on short hair, or whether it was just a gimmick used by most other companies.To my surprise it did actually work, and it was not painful at all! I think the rollers on the epilator helped to massage out the area first before using it - my tip, however, would be to pull the skin taught before using.The only fault with the product is that it is actually a bit smaller than other epilators I've seen on the market, however, this could also be a good thing as it is quite compact!All in all a good product recommended for first time epilator users or those who do not have a high pain threshold.
Update texts sent regularly after returning a faulty epilayor, clear information as to what to expect. Within hours of braun receiving it a new one was on its way
Yes, I recommend this product !
Brilliant!!Once I managed to purchase the travel adaptor, as I don't have a 2 pin plug :(..The instruction manual could of been clearer, as it doesn't state what each setting is for, or whether the product needs plugging in or if it is wireless.. :/I loved the product.. It worked really well for my hair type.. (although I used my partner as my guinea pig!)I give this product a 4 star rating! Reason is, I think if being shipped to the UK, it should of came with a 3 pin plug.. :(Other than that, I had no problems at all,
I couldn't wait to open my package off the postman. On opening the outer box I have to say the product looked very welcoming by the way it was presented. Once inside, I took time to read the very informative booklets, which are printed in several languages so as to be helpful worldwide. I experimented with the facial brush first. I had a slight problem opening the battery compartment but I suppose this would be because of the newness. No other problems, it was lovely to use!The epilator is just the right size to handle and works a treat! True to brauns word, it certainly removes the fine hairs. One slight problem with the cable, not everyone would expect to find a two point plug, so an adapter is required. The cooling glove with ice pack is a bonus, lovely!I would recommend this product 100%
Handy little tool that fits into my weekend bag quite easily. Hurt a little bit the first few times I used it but once I was used to it then it didn't bother me. Left my legs feeling really smooth. I usually miss a little hair on my legs when shaving but this left my legs really smooth for days! Great little tool for people who don't have time to shave legs and other areas every few days.
Lets start with the packaging as this is the first thing that will entice you to buy this product. It's sleek and appealing. Inside you get the main epilator unit, a mains cable (for use with a shaver point), the cleansing unit, batteries, a carry bag, freezer gel pack & sleeve.Well I don't know about you but I will NEVER remember to get the gel pack after doing my legs so this goes straight in the freezer and won't see the light of day until noe of my children bumps their heads or burns a finger on their straighteners when I shall root around to find this!If you are wanting a unit that you can use anywhere - this is not for you. It's mains operated so you either have to plug it into s shaving point in the bathroom (of which we don't have) and hope the cable is long enough or use an adaptor and plug it into a household socket. I keep mine in the bedroom as i find it easier to use this at night just before going to bed.Now be warned - it is bed to shave your legs or get them waxed before letting this loose on your hairy legs or armpits! In my experiance I find it much easier to start using this a day or 2 after shaving and then using the epilator every day. This was you're only removing the hairs in stages rather than an eye watering all at once!!The product worked well although I did have to go over my legs a few times. The lgiht is useful but I did get twisted in the cable a few times!!It worked well on my legs and armpits but I wouldn't suggest you use it anywhere else as its quite powerful.The face cleansing unit I was surprised about. This runs on batteries and has an on/off button and 2 speed settings. I'm not sure how long this will last as it dosn't seem waterproof. It did leave my face feeling very smooth though but really dosn't give the Clarisonic Mia a run for it's money.Overall a nice product.
This is my very first time of using an epilator and to be honest I as very scared to try it out. However, now I am genuinely kicking myself for waiting this long to have one.The package came with an epilator, a cleansing brush for the face and an ice pack and cooling glove which were very useful. Also, the epilator had 2 speed settings-a slower gentler one and a quicker one along with a smart light which helped revel the hairs whilst using the epilator. In addition, the epilator was easy to hold and clean because it could be cleaned under water.The only negative aspect to this epilator for me was the 2 pin plug which could only be used from mains and as I don't have a shaver point, I had to purchase an adaptor.On the other hand, I would strongly recommend the Braun SE5780 Silk-Epil 5 Epilator to everyone.Yes, I recommend this product.
Overall I was disappointed with this epilator. Having owned an epilator previously I was expecting technology to have advanced but I found this model to have the same niggles as the old one and was more difficult to use. It took me a while to realise that this model was not rechargeable (I had assumed this was a basic feature of an epilator) and had to be plugged in at all times - having a razor power socket plug meant that I was limited to where I could use this without buying a further adaptor. I referred to the instruction manual but this was not 100% clear, there were also many typos in the instructions and it gave the impression that it had been written by a person who did not have English as a first language. My favourite was "super vision". Once plugged in I found the epilator to be noisy and the cable limited my movement. It did remove the hair well and from that point of view did the job as expected. The ice glove that came with the epilator was a good item and made the epilation less painful. I also liked the cleansing brush and will continue to use this - I used the brush just with water and after use my skin felt tighter and I had the feeling of a deep clean.
Was totally impressed (as soon as I saw the packaging!) this is a must have item for any lady, not as painful as I remember when epilators first came on the seen. The bonus edition comes with a facial brush, good for cleansing and massaging the face. Both items a good size too, not too bulky and easy to hold, noise and weight acceptable also. Legs felt very smooth afterwards.
