Product Description

Silk-épil 5 for extra gentle epilation for optimal results

Designed for efficient, long-lasting and extra gentle hair removal, the new Silk-épil 5 5780 is ideal for women who are new to epilation. It includes close-grip technology with 40 tweezers that remove even short and fine hair. It also has a Comfort System with massage rollers that stimulate the skin, plus a cooling glove effectively cools the skin before and soothes it after epilation to further increase your comfort. The features of the Silk-épil 5 Epilator are dermatologically recommended by Dr. med. Petra Staubach (University Skin Clinic, Mainz) as the gentle solution to long-lasting hair removal thanks to its unique combination of skin-soothing features.

Product features at a glance

Features of the 5780

1. High frequency massage: The high frequency massage system stimulates the skin and effectively soothes the plucking sensation during epilation to maximise your skin comfort.

2. Pivoting head: The Silk-épil 5 Dual Epilator features a flexible head that can pivot by up to 15 degrees forward and back. This means it can better adapt to the contours of the body for more comfort and maximum thoroughness. And it ensures that optimum usage position is maintained.

3. SoftLift Tips: The SoftLift Tips effectively lift even flat-lying hair and help guide them to the tweezers for removal.

4. Smartlight: The Smartlight helps easily guide your way through the epilation process and lightens up even the finest hairs for no miss removal.

5. Speed personalisation: You can select the right speed for your individual needs: Speed one for extra gentle epilation, speed two for extra efficient epilation.

Fully washable

The Silk-épil 5 5780 has a sealed body, which means it can be cleaned under running water for better hygiene.

Five attachments included

The Silk-épil 5 5780 also comes with five attachments including a shaver head, a trimmer cap, an efficiency cap, a sensitive area cap and a facial cap, specifically designed to give you superior results in different areas of the body.

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 attached effectively cools the skin before and soothes it after epilation.

NOTE: Item comes with UK 2pin shaver plug

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased! 13 Dec 2012
    By Jean
    Verified Purchase
    I've been using the Silk-epil for legs for about 15 years - the yelps of pain from other reviews are just a distant memory. But I couldn't find any reviews on the facial epilator so was a bit nervous about my latest purchase, which I made specifically for the face attachment. Would it hurt? Would it leave my face red raw? Would it leave me with a 5 o'clock shadow? So first try, I used the frozen gel pack to numb my face and had aloe vera at the ready for any soreness. Also, used it on a Friday evening to give me the weekend to recover from any redness/soreness. It's useful that there are two speeds so I can go slowly, also the light (which I don't find particlarly helpful for my legs) is useful. The only problem I have experienced is getting the right angle to catch all the hair but practice helps. It tingles when pulling out the hairs but not unbearably painful (if you've used an epilator before I think you'd be ok with it). In my case, no redness, no soreness, no 5 o'clock shadow, obviously I don't know if that would apply to everyone. Expense? Compared to the cost of waxing, creams and lotions over the years then in the long term it's not really that expensive. I use it a couple of times a week (because there are always those hairs just under the skin waiting to pop through the next day!). Price and delivery excellent, as I've come to expect from Amazon. So, if you can nerve yourself up for the first try, I'd recommend this wholeheartedly.

    By Philip VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    A review from the wife.. I was somewhat apprehensive moving from my Philips Satinelle epilator with a clip on ice pack to this new Braun epilator which only came with a separate ice cooler. I imagined that this was going to be a painful slog. Nevertheless, ice pack at the ready and applied to my skin, I used the pivoting massage epilator head on my legs. I can honestly say that this is the most comfortable epilation process I have ever experienced. No pain whatsoever! I thought I'd be even braver and try a patch of skin without using the cooler pack on it, again to be extremely surprised at the lack of pain. There is a faint ticklish, sharp sensation but certainly not pain. I have no idea why it doesn't hurt but I suspect it's something to do with it having 40 tweezers (rather than the 20 something in my old one) and the clearly very effective massage system. The 40 tweezers also make epilation quick - I had done both legs and arms in under 20 minutes.

    I used the sensitive area cap for the bikini line and underarm. Now that's slightly more painful as it does not use the massaging head. I'm not sure I will use it again for the bikini line but it certainly has good results underarm. The facial cap is easy to use and slightly uncomfortable but certainly useable.

    I found the hair growing back after roughly three weeks. I have used epilators for nearly 15 years and have certainly noticed the rate of hair growth significantly decrease over the years. So perhaps if you are new to epilation, the results may not last quite so long.

    Now for the big flaws which have resulted in a three star score...

    By Petra "I love to read" TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Braun Silk-epil Xelle 5780 Body and Face Epilator for me is an epilator which I would recommend to all those who want an epilator which can also be converted to a shaver but one point I would like to make from the beginning is that this epilator is not rechargeable which I do realise is a selling point for a lot of epilators as I do understand when using a device such as this users do not like to have to be always having to be near an electrical socket. A two pin shaver head is provided with this epilator with a lead which is nearly ninety inches long which for me was an adequate length for me to work with the epilator comfortably.
    One reason I do like this actual kit the manufacturer/designer of this model truly have thought of everything as within the contents is the following.
    1. Shaver head this is particularly useful for those areas which first of all the hair might be too long to epilate. This actually works very well and very close to the skin, I like to use this under my arms.
    2. Trimmer cap this is useful if you prefer to pre-cut your hair to the ideal length for epilation as it is less painful to remove a shorter hair rather than a longer hair.
    3. Sensitive area cap, this is for your own choice though I would recommend it to be used around the bikini line area but that is my own personal opinion and other users would have their own sensitive areas.
    4. Facial cap I find this works well for me as I have very dark hair therefore I would have dark hair growing on my upper lip - this also saves me going to the beautician which also save me money throughout the month.
    5. Cooler glove plus ice pack which I love as it is lovely to use after epilation as it simply makes me feel good and takes the burning sensation out of my skin after using the product.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Length: 4:02 Mins
    The 'Braun Silk-épil Xelle 5780 Body and Face Epilator' is a small handheld epilator for removing body and facial hair.

    Supposedly ideal for women who are new to the somewhat painful process of epilation (it basically pulls out your hairs as you roll the epilator over your skin) this particular model incorporates a number of different heads and settings to supposedly ease you into the procedure.

    Upon opening the box for the first time you do feel a bit bewildered by the mass of detachable heads and other such paraphernalia that comes with the epilator. We're talking five different head attachments, a diddy-little cleaning brush, a handy carry pouch, and a gel freezer pack with the accompanying mitt. But once you get to using the epilator quite regularly, you find that you'll start using much of them like its second nature.

    To begin with, I have to say that my wife found the freezer pack to be an absolute godsend. It really makes a difference to the harsh stinging of having your body hairs plucked out en masse in such a way. As an epilating novice, the initial pain/sting was a bit of a shock for my wife (as well as for me - I had her do my back in the name of product testing for this review)! Using the pack to numb the area a little first certainly helped her (I wasn't given the option apparently). Although I'm told that after a few uses, you definitely start to get used to the epilator - but it's always going to have a certain element of pain attached to it.

    Whilst the forty-odd 'tweezers' are doing their stuff, along with a contour-adjusting-pivoting head, the epilator also has some funky looking massaging balls which supposedly sooth the plucking sensation whilst in use.
