Ideal for women who are new to epilation, the Silk-épil 5 5380 is packed with features to ensure epilation is as pain-free as possible. It includes a comfort system with massage rollers that stimulate the skin and a cooling glove to soothe after epilation. Plus close-grip technology, with 40 tweezers, removes short and fine hair for efficient epilation.
Braun’s Silk-épil epilators are the perfect choice for first-time users. Their active massage rollers softly stimulate your skin with micro pulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Still, if you are inexperienced, you may feel a little discomfort during your first epilating sessions. This will decrease with each session, as the skin adjusts to the process. Also, the individual hairs grow back at different speeds depending on their particular growth cycle, so that there will be less hair to remove after the first epilation.
No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth.
The best preparation for epilating is a nice, warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed. Be sure to use a gentle, pH-neutral shower gel, and keep the water warm, not hot, to avoid drying out your delicate skin.
Silk-épil epilators have been developed especially to minimise any discomfort and irritation. The cooling glove included effectively cools the skin before and soothes it after epilation.

More comfortable to use than my previous one (which is now nearly 10 years old) and does the job OK.
One niggle is that the electrical connector for the power supply is loose and falls out whenever the epilator is turned up (eg for underside of legs). I have partially solved this by jamming paper in the gap to hold the connector in place but this really is not good for a new item.
Am beyong pleased with my purchase. Quality item and quality service.
