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.

Comfort System - massaging and cooling

The Silk-épil 5 features high frequency massaging rollers that actively stimulate your skin for an extra gentle epilation and a cooling glove that cools and prepares your skin before epilation and soothes it after.

Close-grip technology

Braun's technological breakthrough makes epilating more efficient than ever before. The 40 tweezers have been engineered to close at the optimal angle and grip hair even closer to the skin for better removal of even the shortest hairs (0.5 mm).

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

    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.

    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...

    After having hesitated to buy an epilator for several years (and even then taking a good while to actually decide which I wanted and taking the plunge), I finally bought the Braun Silk-Epil in June.

    I am SO pleased I bought this. It has made my life so much easier in terms of time devoted to hair management and I have never had such a smooth finish. My skin used to get so sore from constant shaving/ waxing/ removal creams and now it has finally settled down.

    The first time you use is definitely the most painful, but if you can push past that then successive times really aren't so bad, partly because the hairs are thinner and partly because they won't all grow back at once, so you're actually having to pull less out each time. There is even a 'massager' attachment to make it less painful, but other than the first few strips I've never really used this and have still been fine.

    Be warned on sensitive areas: my armpits were very painful to do first time and bled a fair bit, but after that I have been able to do them with barely any discomfort. The best thing is that I barely ever have to think about whether or not my armpits are 'done' becuase it takes at least a week for me to see any hairs (although I know this might vary from person to person)

    The torch is also very handy and does help to show hairs you can't otherwise see.

    The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is because sometimes if you're using for longer, the device can get a bit warm and misses the odd hair, but this is only when you're doing large areas of skin (for me this is when I do my whole legs including my thighs).

    All in all, I'd say a great product, especially if you're a first-time epilator buyer like I was :)
