Yes, I recommend this product !
My beautician was surprised whenI asked for just one leg to be waxed I wanted to compare the Braun silk-epil to waxing , well it was easy to use loved the ice pack which is great to used before you start . after 4 weeks went back to have my legs waxed again and found that the leg which I used the Braun was as good as the waxed leg!!! But, the only downfall I found when using the Braun again you must make sure that you keep the skin taut as the skin can get caught in the head of the Braun.If the Braun shaver had a three pin plug you would be able to use this anywhere anytime but having to reply on a shaver plug which is a pain, the upside is you don't have to worry about making apt for waxing.The cleansing brush for the face was ok but felt it didn't completely cleanse my face, if sold separately would not purchase it.

This is my very first time of using an epilator and to be honest I as very scared to try it out. However, now I am genuinely kicking myself for waiting this long to have one.The package came with an epilator, a cleansing brush for the face and an ice pack and cooling glove which were very useful. Also, the epilator had 2 speed settings-a slower gentler one and a quicker one along with a smart light which helped revel the hairs whilst using the epilator. In addition, the epilator was easy to hold and clean because it could be cleaned under water.The only negative aspect to this epilator for me was the 2 pin plug which could only be used from mains and as I don't have a shaver point, I had to purchase an adaptor.On the other hand, I would strongly recommend the Braun SE5780 Silk-Epil 5 Epilator to everyone.Yes, I recommend this product.

Handy little tool that fits into my weekend bag quite easily. Hurt a little bit the first few times I used it but once I was used to it then it didn't bother me. Left my legs feeling really smooth. I usually miss a little hair on my legs when shaving but this left my legs really smooth for days! Great little tool for people who don't have time to shave legs and other areas every few days.

I was excited to trial the SILK-ÉPIL 5 firstly because it is my first campaign and secondly because I have always wanted to use an epilator but never quite been brave enough to buy one and actually go through with it. Also friends of mine have shared horror stories with me which were slightly off putting!The packaging is pleasing on the eye, back and pink make it look girly yet stylish friendly and appealing.On opening the box I got the parts out and started to flick through the instructions which are in several languages but once I found the right section they are not overly complicated and relatively straight forward.I quickly realised that the included batteries are for the facial brush and not the epilator itself, this is mains powered and can only be connected to a shaver plate. As we do not have one of these I had to hunt out an adapter. Once this issue was resolved I was ready to go. The epilator was a bit stingy but nowhere near as bad as I'd expected, in fact not bad at all. The cool pack certainly helped calm down the redness and overall I was impressed. My legs weren't overly hairy only a few days regrowth and the epilator left them smooth and not stubbly. There was fairly minimal noise from the machine.I briefly used the facial brush and it left my skin feeling soft, not amazing though. I was far more impressed with the main epilator product the facial brush is a nice addition, but nothing too impressive.In summary I was very happy with the product, would recommend to others and will definitely be using again. The only downside is that it is mains powered. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Hi I'm Kelly and I'm a buzz agent, my product to test this time round was the Braun silk epil 5. The box was appealing and product was very pretty, but I would have liked to know that it had a two prong plug not a three, so off to the shops I had to go and get myself an extension plug. I personally wouldn't recommend for short hair like it states on the box as it left me with a lot of shorter stubbly hairs. The product was really easy to use and the light helped guide my way. It did hurt a little at the start but once I got used to the product the pain didn't seem to bother me, the cooling pack helped and came in very handy, legs were nice and smooth for weeks once I'd gotten rid of the shorter hair it had missed.

I've always been so scared to use Epilators, just the sound of the machine and the thought of using it has always put me off. I've heard a few horror stories too - albeit from someone who may just be over the top.The product states that it can remove even the shortest of all hairs. It comes with an ice pack to help soothe the area and a cleansing brush for the face. This time I thought I would try out the epilator itself.On charging the Silk-épil 5 up, I was surprised it didn't make the noisy sound most of Epilators do, and it did not put me off using it.My hair was relativity short, and I thought this was the best time to test it out, to see if it really did work on short hair, or whether it was just a gimmick used by most other companies.To my surprise it did actually work, and it was not painful at all! I think the rollers on the epilator helped to massage out the area first before using it - my tip, however, would be to pull the skin taught before using.The only fault with the product is that it is actually a bit smaller than other epilators I've seen on the market, however, this could also be a good thing as it is quite compact!All in all a good product recommended for first time epilator users or those who do not have a high pain threshold.

Couldn't wait to get the kids in bed so I could open the package. First impressions were great. The box was stylish and sleek. You could clearly see the epilater and face brush. The back of the box have some useful specs on the product but was honestly slightly overwhelming as has 7 language choices for 6 different specs so was very word heavy!! Once I got everything out I had a good look at the products. They felt well made and sturdy- unfortunately no uk plug adapter- so had to figure out adapter situation. Once that was done it was very simple to get started. I was a bit apprehensive about the pain involved as had never used an epilater and have heard they can be painful. It would be lying to say this product was pain free but it is certainly manageable and the cooking gel pack that is provided was great! It does definitely remove even the shortest hairs- but I would say you need to go over some areas a few times in order to get each bit which I presume is totally normal and expected. In short- I would definitely recommend this product- but it isn't a magic wand and does take some time to get completely smooth legs-follow the clear instructions for the best results and think in advance about where you would use this, as you may need an adapted ready.

This is a great little device. Really compact and love that it all fits into one little bag. The little face cleaner is lovely and leave your face really smooth and soft. The silk epil is very good and left my legs really smooth and hair free. I have very thick dark hair and it removed it all no problem at all. The only thing I can find wrong with this product it the fact it doesn't charge so has to be plugged in when using it. As it only has a shaver plug and most of these are like mine attached to a shaving light above the sink it's not the easiest thing to use as you end up in all sorts of positions trying to get your legs done without being able to sit down in comfort and do them! Other than that this product does exactly what it should do very well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have never used an epilator before so it took a couple of attempts to get a good result on my legs - needed to be slower and softer. Results were great so will be using again. As never used before was aLittle sore but hoping that will get better with time/experience. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
