Frequently asked questions

I have never epilated before. How should I go about it?

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. 

Does more hair grow back if I epilate?

No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth. 

How do I best prepare my skin for epilating?

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. 

Is epilation painful?

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.

Braun 5380 Silk-épil 5 Legs & Body Epilator Reviews

Great Epilator but One Niggle

Submitted by wrentom on 25 August 2015
3 out of 5

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.
