this product is great

the product is exactly that I was looking for, hairs are removed from the root, even if they are 2-3 mm in length, the hairs appear to be rarer and almost none, as to the pain, it can endure, I do not put an attachment and it works perfect

Yes, I recommend this product !

Never tried before

I only tried the epilator function without the shaving tip. I personally prefer the more traditional shaving, but there’s nothing wrong with the epilator.

I had bought it as a gift to my daughter but she couldn’t bear the pain. So I kept it to my self. It’s fine and keeps the body hairless for three weeks. Recommended

First time

This is my first time using an epilator, and all that I can say is that I'm overwhelmed. I'm surprised that I didn't buy one earlier, and I'm pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it all went. I have so far, only epilated my legs, since I'm a little scared of the pain regards the armpit or bikini area. The first time that I tried the epilator it hurt a lot. It wasn't a pleasant feeling, nor did it go smoothly since the pain. I would say that if you want to go hair-free for about three weeks and not have to worry about shaving, I definitely think that you should purchase this product. But it is going to hurt the first two times since the hair follicles aren't used to the hair being pulled out if you haven't tried epilating before or waxing. I'm very pleased with this product in particular since I can both use it in the shower and on dry skin. If you are willing to get an amazing hairfree skin for a couple of weeks in exchange for a little bit of pain, I would say go for it!

Yes, I recommend this product !

Not perfect or painfree

I'll always wanted to try one of these, but I've been afraid that it would be to painful. I will not lie, the first time it was painful. Like a sharp surgical knife, but I was happy with the result. I've used it now once a week as recommended from the instructions, and it gets less and less painful, but it don't get all off the short hairs, so I have to use the racer as well. All in all I think it is an ok product that I will continue to use, with a racer to get it smooth.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Good quality for a low amount

I have testet the product for smartson and bought the product to a reduced price however even then it is a great product for the money. I have used it for legs (lower and upper) but on the lower legs I stopped epilating since I get too many ingrown hairs.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Beginners epilator 5-511 Braun

Hello!I am a random beginner woman user from Finland. Sorry about my writing skills.. x)Ok.. so now I have been using this Braun epilator starter kit for 6 weeks... about..This was my fist epilator ewer and I was scared at first and it took a long time to get used to the pain. I have really sensitive skin and I don´t like any pain so.. haha.. this was interesting trial for me.I have used this machine on my legs and bikini area ones in a week or when needed in shower, sometimes after sauna.Here is an easy tip for the beginners :)When you start using this epilator and have newer used anything like this before.. start using the "beginner cap" on your first and second use. I noticed that when I have more hair to epilate away I have more pain.So if you use the "beginner cap" first and then start using "skin contact cap" it´s easier to start using this machine.. You feel less pain.And if you have short hairs you feel less pain. This machine is so easy to use.. and it can remove really short hairs(1mm), I like this machine a lot.It is easy to clean under water and use in shower + reload after every use.Only negative thing is that I can not epilate my armpits... But it is ok. I recommend this Braun epilator starter kit for every beginner and everybody who wants to save some money when removing hair from legs and bikini area. ;)

Yes, I recommend this product !
