I was offered to try the epilator and when It arrived I must admit I was a bit apprehensive about using it for the first time as I had never epilated before and was under the impression it can be very painful and I hate painThe instructions are clear and very easy to follow the most important instruction to follow us to freeze the cooling pack first don't do what I did and try it for the first time without the cooling pack as it's very uncomfortable withoutOnce I froze the cooling pack and left it on the skin area ready to epilate for the required time it was much less uncomfortable and the more I used it the more I got used to itThe light on it is a great idea as it helps you see what you are doing and makes stray hairs more visableDays after epilating legs still feel soft and hair free several days laterIn my opinion once used to it it's much better then shaving although bit more time consuming in the beginning but once you have done your full legs it's just a case of touching up areas for little stray hairsThe only down side I could find is that if you don't have a uk adaptor you can't use it straight away as it's supplied with a 2 pin so had to go and buy one before I could try it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Never used an epilator before Was very apprehensive. On asking friends they had not tried one either but had been told it is very painful which made me even more anxious. .Well tried it and must say. Was not as bad as I thought the cooling gel is amazeballs.My legs are very smooth and have used a few times now; my hairs start to grow back after about 3 weeks but can definitely notice also that my hair is a lot finer. One thing to note though is that since been using this product. I have had a few ingrown hairs so regular exfoliation and moisturising is a must.All round great little gadget. I have recommended the ptouct to my friends and family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I've tried Silk-épil 5 and it has exceeded my expectations.For me the most important thing was for how long I wouldn't need any kind of epilation before my hair starts to re-grow. With this product it was 3 weeks, which is unheard of.This is not the first time I have used the Braun products. In fact I've had several Silk-épil epilators and other Braun gadgets throughout the years. This is the best one so far.For me Braun products are the best products on the market. Because they always deliver. Because they always give you the best value for money.Their design is always ergonomic and pleasing to the eye.I've shared my device with my sister and my best friend. At some point I wasn't sure I was getting it back - it was so popular.I would recommend it to anyone without any hesitation. The best Braun product to date for me!

I absolutely love this!! I've only used an epilator once before a long time ago and I remember it really hurt! The silk epil 5 was really easy to use. It seemed to glide over my skin and even though the hairs weren't that long it got them all out. It lasted about a week before they started to grow back and even then it was only a few hairs that came back. Will be using this all the time from now on! The only downside was that the power lead that fits into the bottom of the epilator was very loose and actually came out a couple of times whilst I was using it. I don't know it's it's just a one off or if all of them are like this but it didn't put me off using it. It came with a gel pack that you put in the freezer which was great to cool the skin afterwards. Overall a fantastic product and I'll be recommending it to all my friends!!

I have used this a few times now on various parts of my body and found it worked well but was a bit of a struggle on some corners of the body. I was also gutted when it arrived with no UK plug so I had to go out and buy an adapter. I will continue to use it though as I found it better than some other alternatives.

i've always been very apprehensive of using an epilator, (I'm a bit of a wuss on the pain factor) but i needed a quicker way than the usual shave and wanted it to last a lot longer too so i thought id give this product a go. Its fantastic there are different heads that you can change for different areas and it was very quick easy to set up and use, there are different speed settings so you can change it to suit you.looks great not to heavy to hold.the only thing i would say is make sure you have a two pin adapter for it to work.other than that an absolutely fantastic product highly recommended.

Well, this is the first time I've ever used an epilator and what can I say it does what it says. It looks very cute in the box and I was excited to use. It's very quick to get some charge however you need a European plug as this doesn't come with a British 3pin plug. I didn't find the instructions very helpful so kind of went with what I thought. I was so excited to use it, I did so with out using the cooling glove,,,,,, ouch!! So I put the gel pack in the freezer and after few hours put it into the glove, and used that first which deffo helped with the pain. At first I flinched as I wasn't sure what to expect but then I got the hang of it and as long as I used the glove I could manage the pain. The epil itself is very light and easy to manoeuvre. After I was finished my legs were all red and blotchy so I wouldn't advise to use it then have your legs straight on show. The next morning my legs were all smooth and no redness in sight. I'm very glad I got the opportunity to try this as I was always to afraid to buy one in the shops incase it hurt to much and it would have been wasted. I can now safe I've been turned, and I'll now use the epil instead of razors.#GotItForFree [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

C'mon girls ditch thise razors this is the way forward!! Thank you for letting me try this i am now converted!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I was a bit sceptical about trying this product - I have been shaving for years, and although I wanted hair free legs for longer than I get with shaving, Im also not good with pain!The Epil-5 comes with a cooling gel pad which you put in the freezer prior to use, and two different head adapters, including one for the face.I left the cooling pad in the freezer for a few hours before I used it for the first time, holding it against the area I wished to use the Epil-5 on for a minute or so.The head on the Epil-5 spins quite fast and can look a bit daunting, but was a way of pulling the hairs out quickly, therefore making it super speedy.I was really impressed with the number of hairs I could remove with each go, you have to make sure the skin is pulled taut and you hold the Epil-5 firmly on the skin, otherwise the results can be patchy.I haven't tried it on my face or underarms yet, but am happy with the results on both of my legs, and am hoping that over time my hairs will be finer.I would thoroughly recommend this product, the short burst of pain is worth it for the overall result [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
