This review is for the Braun Silk-epil 5 5-511 which was received free from Braun to review. OK first off I've tried an epilator before and the pain put me off using one again but this offer came up and I couldn't refuse, but this is different. In the box you get a double prong charger, the epilator, a brush and a detailed instruction manual. Out the box, gave it a charge, turned it on, boom anxious, I'm there with this device hanging above my leg too scared to do anything, the first few goes I'm not going to lie they hurt a little, but I got brave and just went for it and do you know what, it wasn't bad at all, almost painless, I think the trick is to just go for it, let go of that fear and just defur those legs, silky smooth result and I don't have to worry about them growing back by this evening, bonus! Great bit of kit, highly recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I last used this again tonight after about two weeks of hair growth and found that it stung a little more than the first time but I think that's because I tried it dry. I like that I didnt need to charge it so had had 2 uses already and no charge. I really like the sleekness of the it and that it's light weight. All in all I would use again and wound recommend it but I would strongly advise using it wet or with a shave cream to avoid stinging or a rash as it can be uncomfortable dry but perhaps after time you would become used to it. It also comes with a little brush to keep it clean.
Vow my dreams has came true thanks to Bzz Agent. I always wanted to buy an epilator but wasn`t brave to do that ,as everyone was saying it hurts a lot. When my free- Braun Silk-epil 5-511 wet & dry epilator came, I couldn`t wait to put my hands on it. Firstly I read an instruction book and decided not to follow instructions for the first time user , which is you are advice to use beginner cap. It combines epilation and shaving to help getting used hair removal from the root. I had a shower to help open the pores and soften the skin. Epilating wasn`t bad at all. It`s not totally pain free but is not too bad, it gives you slight tingling sensation. My skin felt super soft and smooth after with no rash or bumps. Three days after still no sigh of hair growing back. I love it!!!-The epilator has really good grip and easy to manoeuvre on the body contours.-It has two speeds which means you can vary the experience- It has beginner cap for first timer users -You can use wet and dry ( shower/bath)-Cleaning brush-Cordless and charges very quick. Got travel charger.-Quiet-Instruction book in 24 languages-Good results!Would recommended this product. Thumbs up from me to Braun.
Fed up of shaving I was keen to try an alternative but didn't know all that much about Epilators so with little research done I dived right in to try it for myself.I unpacked the box and charged up the epilator, whilst it was charging I looked through the instructions. It does not take much time to charge at all, I found charging for just over an hour was fine for my first use.I did find it a little difficult to follow the instructions, when it came to using the Epilator for the very first time, it didn't appear completely clear on which attachment to use although after re-reading a few more times I soon realised how to use it.I have never used an epilator before so I don't think that I was prepared for the pain that I initially felt. I used the Epilator wet for the first time, I lathered up and used the Epilator and I experienced what I can only describe as pulling sensation as it was removing the hairs I wasn't sure if that was exactly how it should feel but it actually became unbearable. I was being careful not to push down too hard but even lightly touching the skin had me taking a deep breath with the discomfort.I decided to tweet Braun for some advice just incase there was something I was doing wrong and they were very efficient in responding to me with some suggestions. They suggested doing it later on in the evening and exfoliating before using the epilator.I tried their suggestions and although it was a little easier I did find it still too uncomfortable to do both legs completely.I will persevere and keep trying as I like the idea of being hair free for longer as shaving is such a real pain and the fact that you can use the epilator dry is a real advantage.It is easy to handle even when using in wet conditions and it is important to get into a comfortable position to use.To charge it does come with a 2 pin plug so if you do not have a shaver socket you will have to buy an adaptor in addition to the Epilator.Also contained within the box were some tweezers which claim to remove hair as small as a grain of sand and well, they certainly do!
I was super excited to receive my Braun Silk-epil 5-511 Wet & Dry epilator and grew my leg hair in preparation! I have never used an epilator before, so was slightly nervous, but I did some homework by watching youtube tutorials and so I was ready!The epilator was easy to put together, not heavy, but very loud.I first tried the epliator on dry skin, but it was just too painful. I understand that the more it's done, the pain does start to ease, but I literally got just south of my knee and couldn't go any further.I then tried (a couple of days later when i'd summoned up the courage) it in the shower, hoping that the water would perhaps make things slightly easier....but no! The pain still there, and I find using an electrical item in water slightly daunting, my brain tells me this is dangerous, even though I know it isn't (does that make sense?)Im really sorry, it's back to shaving for me.
I was thrilled to be asked to try the braun silk epil 5. I was sent the Braun silk epil free from Braun for a honest product review.
I'd never tried one before I was asked so before it arrived I did done research so I knew what I was getting into.
It arrived a few days later, the packaging is nice and it came with a charger and instruction booklet. It was already charged when it arrived so I thought I'd give a quick go.
It has 2 speed settings, the first one for beginners like myself. When I turned it on, it did scare me a little and it is a bit noisy.
It's painful to start with but you get used to it after a while.
I used it for the third time last night and decided I'd try it in the shower this time. I used shower gel as suggested but I felt it was too soapy, however it did help with the gliding of the epil. I found the rubber grip on the handle very helpful. I didn't need to worry about it slipping out of my hand.
It's not 100% perfect but then nothing is. It hasn't got all the hairs on my legs but you can only tell this when you run your hand over them. So as long as you can't see any hairs I'm happy!
I highly recommend moisturising after each use. Especially the first time you used it. My legs were very red and blotchy after the first use and were a little sensitive to the touch.
I do find that it does take more time than shaving but then I don't have to use the epil as often as I would need to shave.
It only takes an hour to charge fully and lasts about 30 minutes. There is a handy little brush to clean with and I love that you can use it wet or dry.
Bottom line is I like it! Not perfect but does a great job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I was delighted to receive the Braun Silk-epil 5 5-511 in the post for free from Braun. I had been told bad things about using an epilator but I didn't think it could be any worse than waxing. I opened the package which was easy to open, read the instructions and went to put it on charge. I was slightly disappointed I had to get a special adaptor to charge it but it turned out ok and only took a short amount of time to charge. I decided to use it wet in the bath and although the sensation was strange at first, the longer I used it the less strange it felt. It took a long time to get the result I wanted but my hair was longer than the recommended length. However, what a result! My legs felt amazing and still do a few days on! Silky smooth and no sign of regrowth. Lets hope I lasts the 4 weeks it says it can but I feel confident! Definitely would recommend and I'd say persevere with the 'strange' feeling.

So it's been two weeks since I first used the epilator and I'm less impressed. I received it free from Braun to try, having never epilated before. I was impressed to start with but now I'm not sure. My legs were great and smooth but now I have some regrowth. Used it before in the shower and today I tried it again in the bath. I'm sure the hair is long enough but the epilator just hasn't done anything! It worked a bit better on dry skin, when my leg had been out of the water a bit, so I'm going to have to try again on dry skin. My friend recommends talcing first to ensure super dry skin. Let's hope it works better next time. Pretty disappointing as it defeats the point of the wet and dry usage! Fingers crossed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I received this epilator for free from braun can i first say that it was not pain free like its suggest when I first tried it it brought tears to my eye and this is coming from a woman who has a high threshold to pain. iv had tattoos that have hurt less lol. But I must say that once I got used to it the pain didnt last and I could handle it also I took into account that they say the more you use it the better it gets. The end results for the epilator was brilliant lovley and smooth and has lasted longer for me so very happy with that result . The down side to this product is that it comes with a two prong plug so if you dont have that fitment in your bathroom you will have to go out and buy a adapter plug for it but other than the pain and the plug I was very happy with the product and would definitely recommend family and friends to buy this and the results are fab and worth the little bit ov pain i will continue to use this product and buzz again very soon to let you all know how im getting on Thank you Braun x [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Well here's my update after 2 weeks first use I'm only just starting too see my hair come through which is absolutely amazing considering I normally have to shave every 3 days it so worth the mild pain and I will definitely be switching from shaving
