It Died 2 Days Before Its One-Year Purchase Date!

On Fri, 28 Jun 2019, I bought a BRAUN Silk Epil 55780 Corded Epilator from Argos. Today, 26 June 2020, it inexplicably stopped working altogether. I tried different outlets and different 2-pin plug adapters, etc. Nothing. It has always been cleaned after each use. I have had to purchase another epilator today. I would think that is still within the standard one-year warranty period. I really hope that I've not spent almost £60 on a product that fails within a year of light, careful use!

Not powerful

Just got the Braun epilator silk-epil 5. Unfortunately I was not happy with it's performance. It's doesn't pick up small hairs and even missed large hairs. I normally use an epilator, but decided to try out Braun's epilators. Unfortunately my experience with it is not good. It's not a powerful machine either.

Great, but only when it works..............

This would be a brilliant epilator if it worked all the time. There's something definitely not quite right with the one I have as it suddenly cuts out & it take a lot of wire wiggling & switching on & off to get it to restart. ( tried it in all sorts of sockets, so know it's not me!!) Braun support have been good at getting it to their service department, but they can't find a fault at present, so are sending out a new cable - fingers crossed that cures the issue as when it works, it's brilliant!

2nd one, still doesn't work!

Bought this from Tescos to replace my old one. Didn't work at all. Didn't charge. Tescos exchanged it for another that works, but only when it's plugged in. This is quite inconvenient because the old one was great to take away camping. But I'll make do. Certainly won't be buying another. :(

Good product and design, but disappointing

I was pleased to be given this product as the box was quite inviting as it showed off the epilator so you were able to see how big it is, which helped to visualise if it was the right size for you and your hand. I was impressed that the epilator came with a shaving head (and guard) so that I could shave where necessary and you could trim hair prior to epilation. The epilator has two speed settings; the slower one is meant for those starting out and produces a gentler effect than the higher speed. I used both settings, but found the faster speed better as it appeared to pick up more hair. I didn’t think there was any discernible difference in pain with the speeds. I did have one problem with the on/off switch as it is the same switch that operates the speed settings and is a central, circular switch on the front (nearest your skin when operating). I found it difficult to turn it off without accidentally going too far the other way (I - 0 - II) to increase/decrease the speed. I think a separate on/off button (e.g. on the side) might work better. The light at the front is useful as it illuminates the skin, identifying shorter, finer hair while in operation. The box included several different heads/covers for use under the arms, in the bikini area and for massaging the skin during epilation. I tried all of the heads, but found I preferred the normal head (without a cover) for use under my arms and on my legs. Changing the heads and changing between shaver and epilator was very straightforward and was simply pull off/push on. Instructions were OK but could have been clearer; the images helped. In terms of how it felt and how efficient it was, I found it really good to eradicate hair under my arms. It provided a quick, painless solution to shaver burn. However, I was less impressed when using it on my legs. Despite the product brochure noting it would remove hairs of 0.5mm in length, the size of a grain of sand, I did not find this. I let the hair on my legs grow to over 1mm long (which felt awfully long to me, as I usually shave every day), but found that it did not pick many up, I was left with stubbly legs and occasional red patches where it had managed to pull out hair. I left it another day and tried again. This time it did remove more hair, but I found I had to go over sections many, many times and it still did not remove all hair, leaving my legs stubbly and not silky smooth as advertised. I found depilating my legs very painful (even trying the glove while it was cold) and I was left with sore legs that had red spots (and some blood!) over them where the hairs had been pulled out. In contrast, I didn’t have any pain under my arms; that worked like a dream. I found it look a long time and lots of passes across the same area to remove hair, so it was not a quick solution to hairy legs for me (it took approximately forty minutes to depilate my lower legs and they were not complete/silky smooth - this is versus about one minute for two entire legs when shaving). I found the shaver attachment worked well and used it to trim my bikini line and any rogue hairs left by the epilator. It was useful to have the bag with it so that all heads could be stored together, but the cooling glove was a waste of time as it melted/warmed up very quickly. One negative for me was that the product was corded and came with a 2-pin plug. I do not have a shaver point or plug in my bathroom so I had to use it in the bedroom; I would have preferred to contain the mess in the bathroom. It also meant that as it wasn’t cordless it wasn’t wet/dry, so couldn’t be used in the shower. This is a big letdown as I think that using it under running water or with foam might help reduce the pain of depilating my legs. As it isn’t rechargeable, you need to take the cable and adaptor (which you have to buy separately) if going on holiday, this is another negative as it adds weight to any luggage. Finally, when in use, the epilator is quite noisy and you are aware that the hairs are being plucked, this might put some people off, but it didn’t bother me. Overall, I give it a mixed review. I would recommend the Braun Silk-Epil 5 5780 for those who want to painlessly depilate under their arms, have the option of shaving and do not want a wet-dry device, but do not recommend for plucking hair from legs. I found it useful under my arms so will definitely use it regularly in that respect. I will try to persevere with my legs, but it did cause me a great deal of pain, so will continue with shaving (as it is significantly quicker and I can do it in the shower).

Never buy this product

The epilator does not remove stubborn hair . Its blades are metal ( not ceramic) and very painful. The specification does not match the actual quality of the product and the value for money , as advertised. Even for the thin hairs you have to go over the hair three times at least to remove it, which makes the experience even more painful. I am so sorry I cannot return it. This one must go straight in the bin. I have always trusted German quality - never again. I should have never changed from Philips.

Braun silk epil 5.

I have never used an epilator before. It would of been good to know that the on this Braun silk epil 5 is not a uk plug it only has two prongs, so I did have to go out and buy an adaptor, there quite cheap so it wasn't to bad. The first time using I found it quite painful and skin was a little red and blotchy, but then the second time was fine. The light is very useful I found I got more hairs out with its help. I liked that it came with cooling glove with the gel pack which does cool the area that you do. The noise of it is quite loud. I would definitely recommend this product.Remember to get an adapter. Fantastic product with a great finish.

SILK-ÉPIL 5 is an Amazing.

The SILK-ÉPIL 5 was adjustment to my regular grooming routine. The hair removal was a nice alternative to my regular waxing and chemical hair removal routine. In my own view, the corded epilator made it easy to epilate my hair in one go without having to recharge. Another plus was the fact that I could clean it under regular water, following the instructions in the booklet -this was is to read by the way. Another wonderful feature was the guiding light to make sure all the little hairs gone for my OCD complexities. I didn't have a need to use the attachment for facial hair, but I am yet to try to meeting my eyebrows as the attachment was small enough to do so. Again I see the light coming in handy here just to get rid of those pesky hairs. All in all I see this as a product that can use for the next two years. The only problem I can see for it, is perhaps the cord been a bit longer for easy manuvering.

Braun Silk-Epil 5 - Grit your teeth and think of the results!

To be honest I was quite apprehensive about trying an epliator again because of the pain. I bought one a few years ago but only managed a couple of goes before I threw it away. Nevertheless I was determined to give this one a go. For those of you who have not used an epliator before, it is pretty much a shaver type product that has tiny tweezers inside the head to pull the hair out. I read the instructions before starting but was surprised to find that it did not have a normal plug socket on the end; just one of those 2 prong shaver plugs. Luckily I had an adapter in the house. I found it very easy to use, particularly with the light and rotating head, which makes it a lot more comfortable and gets a closer grip. I'm not going to lie, it hurts!! The sort of pain you get when you have a tattoo (apologies to those who have not had one) as it really does sting but you sort of get used to the pain after a while. The cooling glove definitely helps. Redness went down after about an hour or so. After 5 days I had absolutely no re-growth on my legs and just a bit around the bikini line. You find that if you keep on top of it and use it every week or so, the pain gets much easier to manage, particularly as less hair grows back. So, pros.....in my opinion it lasts longer than waxing and obviously far longer than shaving. The rotating head and cooling glove are great and make the experience more comfortable. Cons.....does not come with a standard plug or adapter. Also does not hold a charge so you have to keep it plugged in while using. The ability to use it cordless would be a massive help. In summary, I found this a much better experience than the cheap epilator I tried a few years ago so it has completely changed my view on them. As long as you can get used to the annoying pain, it is definitely worth it. Much cheaper than getting regular waxes as well!
