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.

Birlliant

This product is brilliant. The head adapts to the shape of the leg (unlike the older version I had). nice and smooth and it felt it does the job faster than the other versions. Only down side is the cord. I'd prefer a cordless version. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk Epil 5

First impressions of this product are good...the product is easy to use and instructions easy to follow. I'm pleased I read because it tells you to put the cooling pad into the freezer a couple of hours before use. I began on the first setting as I was nervous about using it but after the initial shock it's a pain you get used to so continued on setting two. Of course you have more sensitive areas on your legs..mine were especially so around the ankles. It has a great little guiding light to show up all of those pesky hairs and although the epilator is great on hairs 2-5mm in length as stated its not good for any shorter but that's easy to rectify by using it the next day to catch any stragglers. I think the pain will lessen in time so I would recommend this product on maybe the next model up as its only for leg hair....only quibble I had is the power cord annoyingly becomes detached regularly.

Overall good epilator

I use an epilator regularly. Was disappointed to find it came with only a 2 pin plug as I had to wait to get a 3 pin plug to be able to use. The switch on was a little strange as previous ones have been a on/off rather than a turn circle. However the epilator gives a close epilation and still have smooth legs after 5 days. Will keep testing this product to see how long I can last before epilating again. The cooling mit and beads helped with pain reduction compared to nothing but epilation.

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.

New experience.

As a waxed I was worried that this would not be as effective or would be more painful.Was very happy this wasn't the case. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
