Designed for uninterrupted hair removal in dry conditions, the Silk-épil 5 Power Epilator will never let you down. Braun's specially designed close-grip 40 tweezer epilation technology catches hair as small as a grain of sand (0.5 mm.), so you'll never have to wait for your body hair to grow so wax can catch it. No more in-between days, no more hassle.

Benefits:
  • 40 close-grip tweezers remove even the shortest hair for up to 4 weeks of smooth skin
  • The high frequency massage system stimulates skin for a more comfortable epilation
  • The pivoting head follows every contour of the body for better skin contact and even gentler performance
  • The smartlight reveals even the finest hair for extra thorough hair removal
  • The speed personalization allows you to select the right speed for your individual needs
  • The entire device can be cleaned under running water for better hygiene

Silk-épil 5 Power Epilator includes:
  • Epilator (1 ct.)
  • Shaver Head (1 ct.)
  • Trimmer Cap (1 ct.)
  • Efficiency Cap (1 ct.)
  • Cooling Glove (1 ct.)
  • Brush (1 ct.)
  • Pouch (1 ct.)
For best results Braun recommends that your skin be dry and free from grease or cream. Before starting, thoroughly clean the epilation head. Attach the epilation head and make sure that the massaging roller clip is in place. Plug the cord into the epilator and then into the electrical outlet.

      Most painful epilator. My legs still burning and hurting. Used it for 5 seconds and couldn't use it any longer couldn't take the pain. You can only use it while it's plugged. Also you can only use it dry. Will only use the trimmer part! Not worth the money!

      Comments about Braun Silk-épil 5 Power Epilator:

      I am so glad I waited for this item to come back in stock! I have coarse hair, and I tear through razor blades, I needed a more economical option- this was it. I gave it a try today, and it was so easy to use. I popped the massaging head off and put the efficiency cap on and went right to work. I used the faster speed, and immediately felt results, my skin is very dry due to harsh winter conditions so while it is smooth, it still feels rough. After using lotion it'll be fine. It feels like a bunch of tiny pinches or pin pricks almost. The pain was very minimal, and the removal did not cause my skin to swell, turn red, bleed, or anything like that- and I have VERY sensitive skin. There were some very fine hairs it didn't pick up on the first go, but after the second they did. I finished about 10 minutes ago, and my leg doesn't hurt at all. If you have the time to commit, the patience to do it, and can tolerate a minor amount of pain- this is absolutely worth it.

        Comments about Braun Silk-épil 5 Power Epilator:

        It's my first time using an epilator and I'm glad I got this one. The hair extractions are close enough and there was minimal bleeding but I think I was too rough. The instructions are not very clear, but do what works for you.

        Delivery was prompt.

            Did a great job at grabbing all the hairs. It does have to be plugged in to use however.

                I have only just receiced this 3 days ago, but used it in face, arms, and legs. It did an excellent job on all areas in very little time. I have never used an emulator but have waxed and had electrolysis over the years. The epilator is similar in the pain experience as far as these go for a first time user. Mild but expected. I am definitely pleased with my purchase. I usually need to shave my legs twice daily to remain smooth but with this I think I will only be shaving for quick touch ups.

                  This product is great if you are prone to hyperpigmentation and bumps from waxing and/or shaving, no matter how much you exfoliate before and after hair removal. It isolates the hair and removes with bulb. I does hurt the first time, and skin does get red and inflammed but your basically tweezing larger areas. When you keep epilating you become accustom to the feeling. I really don't know why I haven't used this sooner.

                  I wasn't sure about it, but now I see that it's worth every penny spent! While using it, I was surprised how painless and fast it was. I even did my armpits and stomach, and I would never risk this with my previous one. And the skin is so soft and smooth, no red spots next morning. Would definitely recommend it!
