Braun Silk-Epil 5 is a smart solution for stubborn hairs!

I used the Braun Silk 5 Epilator in an attempt to have constantly smooth legs. I was a little nervous to use this product simply because of the pain I thought would come with it. But Braun thought of that! They include a cooling glove that is used right before you epilate and it makes the process much more enjoyable! I didn't have to grow my leg hair out long at all for the epilator to catch it and get rid of it. I recommend following the instructions stating to use the product at night to let the redness go away while you sleep. The product was easy to use, easy to clean and something I would want to use again! I would recommend this product to people who can handle a little discomfort for long-term results.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Painful but only for the first time

I was giving the Braun Silk-elip 5 in exchange for my review. While this product does what it says it will, it is painful the first time. I found that after the first time, the hair was finer and easier to remove with the epilateur. I loved the design and colors. It fits nicely in your hand making it easier to use. The pivotal head was great for getting close to the knee and calf area. Great packaging. The cord of the appliance could be longer in my opinion. All in all, good product.

Braun epilator

I love it... Been using it... Now I don't have to shave as often! I even let my sister try the Braun epilator... And she is in love with it . She usually wax.
