I was scared of using it to start off as I thought it was going to hurt. It didn't hurt ONE bit! It felt smooth against my skin and removed the hair well. I was very happy with how it worked! I like how it comes with a little brush to brush off the hair around the top part.
Yes, I recommend this product !
The SILK-ÉPIL 5 was adjustment to my regular grooming routine. The hair removal was a nice alternative to my regular waxing and chemical hair removal routine. In my own view, the corded epilator made it easy to epilate my hair in one go without having to recharge. Another plus was the fact that I could clean it under regular water, following the instructions in the booklet -this was is to read by the way. Another wonderful feature was the guiding light to make sure all the little hairs gone for my OCD complexities. I didn't have a need to use the attachment for facial hair, but I am yet to try to meeting my eyebrows as the attachment was small enough to do so. Again I see the light coming in handy here just to get rid of those pesky hairs. All in all I see this as a product that can use for the next two years. The only problem I can see for it, is perhaps the cord been a bit longer for easy manuvering.
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.
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.]
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
To be honest I was quite apprehensive about trying an epliator again because of the pain. I bought one a few years ago but only managed a couple of goes before I threw it away. Nevertheless I was determined to give this one a go.For those of you who have not used an epliator before, it is pretty much a shaver type product that has tiny tweezers inside the head to pull the hair out. I read the instructions before starting but was surprised to find that it did not have a normal plug socket on the end; just one of those 2 prong shaver plugs. Luckily I had an adapter in the house. I found it very easy to use, particularly with the light and rotating head, which makes it a lot more comfortable and gets a closer grip. I'm not going to lie, it hurts!! The sort of pain you get when you have a tattoo (apologies to those who have not had one) as it really does sting but you sort of get used to the pain after a while. The cooling glove definitely helps. Redness went down after about an hour or so.After 5 days I had absolutely no re-growth on my legs and just a bit around the bikini line. You find that if you keep on top of it and use it every week or so, the pain gets much easier to manage, particularly as less hair grows back.So, pros.....in my opinion it lasts longer than waxing and obviously far longer than shaving. The rotating head and cooling glove are great and make the experience more comfortable.Cons.....does not come with a standard plug or adapter. Also does not hold a charge so you have to keep it plugged in while using. The ability to use it cordless would be a massive help.In summary, I found this a much better experience than the cheap epilator I tried a few years ago so it has completely changed my view on them. As long as you can get used to the annoying pain, it is definitely worth it. Much cheaper than getting regular waxes as well!
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!!!
Never used an epilator before and was looking forward to using the product. It was a great product left my skin smooth. The only issue I had with it was finding a plug to convert into English form American. Apart from that once the plug issue was sorted I feel in love with it. I wouldn't go back to a disposable razor! The cooler pack is great for after too! Feels great!
When the box was unpacked, everything was neatly put in. The first time I tried it on my arm and I found it very effective as I had just recently shaved my arms so the hair length was not long. Another advantage is that it has two options effective or gentle. So if your in a hurry then to turn it to the effective side. The facial cap worked wonders when I epilated my face. I didn't have to go through any section again. and then the cooling pack with the glove was instantly calming to the skin.Only disadvantage I would say that when it is off charge it doesn't work, so only works when plugged in.Overall a great experience and a wonderful item that is handy for women every day. Recommended to all.
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.
