Nifty little thing

I've used this for over a year now and I have had no problems at all. It works as advertised, and I'm very happy with the result. Even small hairs can be removed. It's better to go for this than the smaller 20 tweezer model. Epilating is, in general, slower than waxing, so it's better to go for the most number of tweezers available.

Like it!

In the beginning,it hurts a little.But once the coarse hair due to shaving etc is gone,the growth is finer. Besides,the dual massage system makes the pain less. Due to the large number of tweezers,in no time you realise all the hair is gone! I'd suggest using it after bath,that time the pain is even lesser.

Only drawback would be that it doesn't run on battery.Nevertheless, all your friends are sure going to buy it after you. So go for it! :)

First Impressions

This is my first experience with epilators, so I have no comparative details to offer. But my experience with the Braun Sik Epil 5 5280 epilator has been great. I received it by Flipkart today (3 days after having ordered it- kudos, Flipkart!), and I sat down and proceeded to epilate my arms and legs with it. Considering that I depended quite a bit on the reviews when I made my purchase, I thought I would put in my two cents worth about my experience with the product. Here goes-

1. Well packaged- Classy and secure (Flipkart did their bit by bubble wrapping the entire box). Makes you feel good about receiving it, and opening it up!

2. The epilator- It's a solid product and looks much better in real life than in the photograph (it's not as plasticky or flimsy as it looks in the picture). The ergonomics are great and allow it to be held in any direction, when reaching for tricky parts.

3. The details- Very thoughtfully designed product. Attachable parts come with coordinated arrows for matching up, the two speeds are located on either side of the power off position on the dial (so that you don't accidentally move from one speed to the other by a simple touch), The inbuilt light is very useful for checking for fine hairs. The parts are detachable, and the head can be cleaned in the water which is again, very useful. Even the manual is great- rather than being only an instruction leaflet, it addresses concerns users may have about epilation, and allays fears about skin redness and other difficulties faced by new users.

4. The epilation- It works really well. I did it on speed 1 throughout. But the motor seems powerful and worked efficiently. My arms are back to normal with almost no redness; my legs do have red spots where the hair was thicker. There was some pain, of course- we're pulling hair out by the root! But if you're used to waxing, this is about the same level of pain (the difference being akin to peeling the bandaid off rather than ripping it off). It is completely bearable, and I found it mild. Also, the manual assures me that the redness will go away overnight, and effects like pain and redness will be much diminished on repeated use (I was epilating after a lot of hair had grown, whereas epilating in sparser spots didn't hurt much, so frequent touchups should be painless).

5. Maintenance- Most of the hair falls out of the epilator as we epilate, but there is buildup in the epilation head and the cap. Since both are detachable and removable, they're easily cleanable. There was a brush provided for cleaning, and I brushed it as free of hair as I could. The manual says the head can also be washed, while also showing clear photographs of how it is to be washed. So long as we keep the epilating head free of hair, I figure long term maintenance should also be relatively simple. But even when there was some buildup in the epilating head, it didn't slow down or anything when being used.

The only issue I had was that the cord attachment connection with the epilator was loose; it fit but came out easily. I'm guessing that's a problem only of my particular piece, and not a general problem. And I could probably get it replaced or some such thing under the two year warranty, if I face a real issue with it.

Overall, I came away very impressed. My skin feels soft (like it does after waxing) and with an epilator, you don't have to wait until there's a certain amount of growth for repeating the process. This one picked up even the finest hairs. I also believe this epilator model supports a separate cap attachment for underarms (not part of the kit but can be bough separately). There's a trimmer shaver, an efficiency cap (for experienced users), and a massage roller cap (to stimulate the skin and lessen pain), a gel ice pack (useful), a glove (for the ice pack- thoughtful!), a cleaning brush and a pouch to put it all into.

I didn't but the Braun 7 series model, because I didn't want to epilate my facial hair (and I didn't mind that mine was corded- I don't foresee using it in places without electricity). This one is relatively more affordable, and works great for the rest of the body! Go for it without worrying!

AMAZING !!!

Ordererd for this product few days back.. and thanks to Flipkart for its SUPER QUICK delivery of the product in perfect condition!!

First of all.. I am a first time user. Never used an epilator before and this product is just amazing.. Used it within few hours of receiving the product.. and Waited a few days to write a review to just be sure that the hair were pulled out of the roots (as suggested) or just trimmed.. Well.. they well all pulled out.. and trust me.. there a HUGE FUSS out there that epilators give a hell lot of a pain.. NO THEY DONT..

I remember turning off the epilator ATLEAST 7-8 times before actually putting it over my skin.. The epilating head (when turned on) kinda looked scary and bizarre.. (greatly becoz of all the pain related fuss over the internet)..

I would recommend this product to any and every buyer!! Very Handy!!

Once again.. Hats Off to flipkart for the premium delivery service!!

Thank god I bought this

Well, I think its totally worth the money. Really saves a lot of time by letting you avoid the errands to the parlour, saves embarrassment by letting you epilate at any time of the day just before a function/trip, gives you the freedom to wear any dress at the last moment without worrying about whether you have waxed or not, and helps you when you are travelling too.

Pros:
1. You can peacefully do it at home at your convenience.
2. It does remove your hair from the roots, keep your skin hair-free for at least 2 weeks. Not sure about the 4 weeks claim but then again this varies from person to person
3. The shaver is really helpful. Cleans the area like a charm. Trimmer helps you trim hair to a length so that epilation doesnt get very painful.
4. The light is very handy in seeing small hairs which it might have missed out.

Cons:
1. It does hurt a little but you will get used to it after 2-3 times just like we all got used to waxing.
2. Removing hair from legs takes some time. All hairs don't come out in the first swipe itself. You need to keep doing that in the same area to ensure that all the hairs are out.
3. Hairs (Not all but a few) will fall out on the ground. So you should either do it in the bathroom or do it sitting on a towel which you can wash later.

A lot of reviews said that the cord is loose and keeps coming out. But that wasnt the case with my piece thankfully. It fit in perfectly. Maybe few of the devices are defective that way.

Loose Cord

The Product is awesome ..... IF ONLY THE CORD would remain attached to the socket of the machine. While doing my research i did come across a few reviews where customers did mention that the cord was loose... I figured, initially.. that the issue must be with a few pieces only.. but in truth, the issue is with the design of the cord and the socket of the braun epilator. The cord refuses to stay attached and keeps falling out... In other words, you may have to use one hand to ensure that the cord is attached to the socket while the other is epilating.

The epilator is great though... Very efficient and uproots hair in one round itself...if and when the cord decides to power it up... quite happy with that...

Summary: Braun, if you're reading this review... please enhance the design of the cord system..

And Flipkart delivered the product within 21 hours of placing the order, which i think is great considering i don't live in one of the more popular areas of bangalore. So thanks flipkart.:)

Review

Bought this product a few days back and before buying it did a lot of research about the pain, how to use it and which company to go for. Finally I decided to go for Braun. Flipkart delivery was on time and beautifully packaged.

Now about the device, firstly i tried to trim down my hair to the proper length using the trimmer cap but since I am very impatient I soon switched to shaving it completely. Was satisfied with the result. Waited for few days before epilating. When i used it on my legs I almost felt no pain ( even waxing isn't painful for me, thank god!), on my arms it pained a bit, like ants biting, but the massage rollers do a very good job and after a while I started enjoying it on my skin ( no, I'm not a sadist!). The only place it hurt really were the underarms, even bled a little but I gritted my teeth and carried on and yes they feel really smooth and soft (let's see how fast regrowth occurs ). The brush is really useful for cleaning. The gel pack didn't come to any use for me as when it was cold I did my legs and felt no need for cooling and when I needed it for my underarms it was back to room temperature. Nevertheless liked this product a lot and very thankful that I didn't feel much pain.

P.S. My cord is loose too.

Go for this product.

:)

epilator cord problem is not true

i am putting this review here as to provide a vital detail regarding this model's problem with the power cord. I didn't purchase this product from flipkart but from a store but I read like 100 reviews on many different websites which mentioned cord problem with this model. But i would like to tell that its not true. As mentioned in few reviews you just need to push it a little better .Just ask any male member of your family or any friend to push the cord and it wont come out. Surprisingly the force applied by us females is not sufficient to connect the cord properly because the cord kept falling out till my friend fixed it for me .
Other that that the epilator works superb and you fell pain only if the hair are long I used it on regular growth and i felt absolutely no pain and normal level of pain equivalent to associated with waxing for slightly long hair. I just bought it and have used it just once so cannot actually cover more about the product. But for me its a thumbs up purchase.

Does the job well :D

Received the order today (was supposed to arrive on 26th but hooray flipkart for sending it 3 days before the stipulated date ^_^ )
Nice packing, passed a lot of time toying with the bubble wrap :P
Well i basically bought it because I'm a hosteler and I don't really have a good parlor/salon nearby and waxing in my room would be a hassle!!!
Yes this is pricier than philips products, but take my word for it, IT IS WORTH THE PRICE!

PROS
1. 40 tweezers compared to 20
2. cooling gel pack is a must have
3. Braun's brandname!
4. Shaver/trimmer head (perfect for nether regions as well)
5. Fully washable (a REALLY big plus)
6. The light! LOVE the light. it is so good i could do the whole job in the dark if i had to
7. No waxing related hassles (wax dripping all over, disposing strips off, burning yourself-yikes!)
8. Really helpful instruction manual (MUST READ for first timers)

Cons:
1. painful (but if you're used to waxing you should be fine)
2. Wish it had the sensitive area and facial hair caps too (epil 7 has but it's out of my budget range :/ )
3. Does cause a bit of breakage instead of pulling it from the roots (AT TIMES) (could be because my arms were a bit greasy because of the cream)

And anyway, full arms+half legs waxing costs almost 300 bucks(even more sometimes), if you get yourself waxed once a month, it would be around 7200 bucks in 2 years. In fact I have a friend whose braun epilator has been working for more than 2 years!!)
This is cheaper, easier, convenient, portable and hassle free!
Love it!

Excellent...!!!!!

Hey all ladies...
This little cute looking product does magical work. After years running to parlors for painful hot waxing, using this epilator at home is just so wonderful. I ordered this product and got it delivered next day (I opted for next-day delivery). Perfecting packaging and delivery by Flipkart...!

Coming to this epilator, let me first tell you all that this is my first experience with using an epilator and I was all smiles after using it. Yes, it does pain, more like little ant-bites, which lasts for couple of SECONDS. I do not have too thick hair, but medium thick. And this product works just so right. The little vibrators reduce the pain caused during epilation. The product built is strong, not any cheap plastic body.

Even cleaning my underarms was almost painless. I made it almost painful by first using the trimmer that came with this product to shorten the length of the hairs. And then used the epilator, keeping the skin stretched as much as possible to remove the hairs from the roots. Oh, just mild pain, nothing severe.

The cooling gel is another best component that comes with this epilator. It really gives great instant relief. My legs, hands and underarms feel so happy, soft and wonderful after using this.

For me its a HAPPY GOODBYE to waxing and happiest HELLO to this Braun Epilator.
Loved it. :D :D :D
