I received the product today and used straight away. My verdict is
I like it, it does a good job,i will not need my legs waxed next week.it is a little tingly but well worth it for the smooth hairless legs that I know have.I have not used am epilator for over 20 years but I think now I will continue to use this. I will definitely recommend to people as I feel the results are amazing.
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 a
Little sore but hoping that will get better with time/experience.
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 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.
Overall I was disappointed with this epilator. Having owned an epilator previously I was expecting technology to have advanced but I found this model to have the same niggles as the old one and was more difficult to use. It took me a while to realise that this model was not rechargeable (I had assumed this was a basic feature of an epilator) and had to be plugged in at all times - having a razor power socket plug meant that I was limited to where I could use this without buying a further adaptor. I referred to the instruction manual but this was not 100% clear, there were also many typos in the instructions and it gave the impression that it had been written by a person who did not have English as a first language. My favourite was "super vision". Once plugged in I found the epilator to be noisy and the cable limited my movement. It did remove the hair well and from that point of view did the job as expected. The ice glove that came with the epilator was a good item and made the epilation less painful. I also liked the cleansing brush and will continue to use this - I used the brush just with water and after use my skin felt tighter and I had the feeling of a deep clean.
I couldn't wait to open my package off the postman. On opening the outer box I have to say the product looked very welcoming by the way it was presented. Once inside, I took time to read the very informative booklets, which are printed in several languages so as to be helpful worldwide. I experimented with the facial brush first. I had a slight problem opening the battery compartment but I suppose this would be because of the newness. No other problems, it was lovely to use!
The epilator is just the right size to handle and works a treat! True to brauns word, it certainly removes the fine hairs. One slight problem with the cable, not everyone would expect to find a two point plug, so an adapter is required. The cooling glove with ice pack is a bonus, lovely!
I would recommend this product 100%
Having looked forward to using the epilator i was a little disapointed in the overall results it did remove some hair but took a long time to get the desired results but did leave the skin where the hair was removed smooth and soft. This is the sort of product you would use while having a pamper day not a quick result and go. I would defiantly continue using it as i think long term use defiantly gets better results.
I was very excited when my epilator arrived I couldn't wait to use it. The packaging was brilliant, there's a window on the front of the box that lets you see the epilator and the face brush. When I opened it there was a instruction manual for the epilator and the face brush, which was very vlear and easy to understand it is in several different languages which is brilliant. So I took out the epilator to use first and was very disappointed as the plug is not suitable for British plugs you use it in a shaving socket which I have got in the bathroom and not in my spare beauty room where I like to pamper my self. That was very off putting as I couldn't epilate when I wanted too. There is a cooling gel and glove that is absolutely brilliant if you have got sensitive skin like me. So I used this prior to epilating and during epilating and it kind of numbed my legs for a few seconds which took away the pain not much but it helped. The gel you can keep in the freezer so it's always there when you need it. I had to go over some areas a few times as the epilator missed a few short hairs which wasn't too much of a problem it was probably me not holding it right to be honest as you have to hold it at a certain angle. The torch on the epilator was a good idea. It is very easy to clean and wash. Overall the product is brilliant the only down side to it is the plug!!!!
My legs felt super smooth after using this epilator as it has also got a pivoting head it adopts to my skin where i am using it, and the high frequency massage system makes it alot less painful as you epilate as the massaging system provides gentle epilating.
The face brush that comes with the epilator is fantastic I would pay good money for that on its own. It comes with two batteries and clear instructions on how to use. After using this product only once I can notice the difference on my skin. The heads to the face brush you have to change after every 3 months. It is also water resistant which means you can use it when in the shower. You can also use it to remove make up.
I definitely recommend this product it is well worth the money especially as you get 2 things :)
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 receive the epilator as have only ever shaved my body, but after reading the box 40 tweezers at once!!! Scary stuff, through did go though my head could I use this. I set it up which is easy to do, and prepared myself for using it. At first I couldn't bring myself to put it near my leg, it's pretty loud too. So after a couple of attempts I did it, and it was fine a bit of pulling but not actually painful which I was very surprised with. I had the cooling pad to hand but didn't use it. But after few times up the same part of leg I noticed that not much of the hair was coming off 70% maybe, I kept trying but still hair was left. Which made me feel disappointed, I had to stop as my leg was becoming red. I looked at the booklet again to make sure I was doing it all correct which I was. So my legs are half done, it was 2 days since I shaved so my legs where not overly hairy, but if you catch long hairs in the epilator (OUCH). I have VERY sensitive skin and it didn't effect it at all which was another bonus. The face massager that came with the epilator is 5 star, makes your face feel so soft and clean after just 1 min, I keep using that every day! Over all I would recommend this product to people.
