Amazing epilator

I was very hesitant at first after a painful experience with my previous epilator. I couldnt be more wrong! it charges quickly and its niceley packed. Braun silk-epil 5 is absoluteley amazing! i started with the Begginner cap which is very useful if you are only just getting used to epilation, and within 2 min I switched to massage cap and then skin contact cap. Adapts to all body areas and the handy light reminds you if you press to hard. the whole experience was actually quite pleasant! Left my legs smoother then they have ever been! 5 stars from me!

Braun Silk-épil 5 SensoSmart Epilator

wow this epilator is really amazing. I have used it on my dry legs, under a shower and in the bath. Its almost pain free when I'm using beginner's cap. I'm really pain sensitive and with this epilator I can enjoy long lasting smooth legs. Very pleased

Great newbie epilator

Having only tried an epilator once before and been out off by the pain I was reluctant to use another. But I can honestly say that i was pleasantly surprised. The beginner head with the shaver was extremely helpful and the fact it came with it's own very well made storage bag was another huge selling point. The massage head was amazing as well. Was still painful but no where near as painful as I remember it been. All in all very good very well thought out and put together product. I will definitely be sharing my positive experience with my friends

Fantastic Epilator

My experience with epilators is very limited, which is why I was so excited to use this. The product comes with a beginner cap, massage cap and the regular cap. Storage is a fantastic grey pouch that fits all of the accessories and charger etc.Charging was quick and I can easily epilate my legs a few times without the need to recharge. The device has a sensor indicator that tells you if you are applying too much pressure, however I feel that a light to see missed hairs would be more useful.The beginners cap makes the first time epilating bearable, by adding a razor as well, however I'd does still hurt, but it's well worth it as my legs are smooth and silky after use. Much better than shaving!I have tried the epilator in the shower and out and the massage head makes for a pleasant easy removal of hair. Will definitely be using this instead of shaving and love that I can use it in the shower or out. The only thing I'd recommend is to do it the night before if you are planning to show your legs off as it leaves you looking a bit bumpy to start with!

Great result!

I was a little apprehensive about using this for the first time so I read the instructions. It sounded easy so I gave it a go, wow, it works! The epilator is a nice colour, easy to use and works brilliantly. I was expecting to have to go over areas again and again to get missed hairs but there weren't any. It is slightly uncomfortable on areas where there are a lot of hairs (my knees for example) but afterwards my legs feel great. The choice of heads is a great idea, I chose the massage head as it suits me best. It takes longer than shaving but lasts for up to four weeks so it's worth taking the time, it took me around 35 minutes for both legs my first time. I expect with practice that time will reduce. I highly recommend this product.

Braun silk - epil 5 5/880

This is a small neat epilator. I hadn't epilated for awhile so the hairs on my legs were slightly longer, but no problem as I now have smooth legs. I used it wet to do my underarms but as I couldn't get my skin taut enough I will have to do it again, but this nothing to do with the epilator. I really liked the different heads.

Excellent!

First i thought that epilators are not for me. It was really hard to use it first time, painfull and longlasting. Every next use of braun silk-epil is even easier and faster. Its very good to use on wet and dry skin.Battery is better than the other brands that i Have been told about. You don’t know how it is working, untill You buy it.Really recommended.

Braun silk

This is a great epilator the fact that it can be used wet or dry is a huge positive. Also you charge and use so it can be used standing in the bath or shower which helps with cleaning away those plucked hairs.

Epilating made easy

It's been a long time since I used an epilator so the beginners cap (that includes a razor) was a great addition. It was so easy to use and it barely hurt! The anticipation was much worse than the actual epilating. The head of the epilator was really flexible so moved around awkward areas easily and the little massage bar made the whole process super easy. The wet/dry function is a great edition too. I also appreciated the range of caps available and it comes with a very handy pouch!If you are nervous about epilating this is one of the best products I've used! I would definitely recommend it.
