great for first try

I am totally new to using epilators but I loved the fact that I could use it while standing in the shower and I am not sure if I was too fast-but the battery lasted long enough for me to use it on the body, so I am very pleased and look forward to using it over and over again!!

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!

Excellent Epilator

Braun Silk-epil 5 SensoSmart is a really brilliant epilator. Comes with several attachments so there is something that will suit everyone, plus there is a storage pouch so that you can keep it all together. It charges really quickly and seems to hold its charge well. It is cordless and you can even use it in the shower or bath as well as being able to use it dry. I loved the fact that it was really quiet. Almost painless and removed even really short hairs...great to have smooth underarms that will last! The beginners cap incorporates a razor which is great to make it easier around sensitive areas like your bikini line. There is also a smart lock function, which means it couldn't accidentally start up when in your luggage- useful! Plus a warning light in case you are using too much pressure. A really excellent Epilator. Here's to a smooth summer!

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.

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.

Great epilator

I think being able to use it in the shower really makes a difference. After trying it for a couple of weeks now I know it's way better than everything I have tried so far. It's less painful, runs smoothly on the skin and leaves it almost 100% hairless. Completed with all extras, it makes a great product for beginners and all those who can't stand pain very well. Battery lasts long enough to do a proper job and my skin still feels smooth after almost 3 weeks.

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
