The epilator is designed to ensure it's easy to use, feels comfortable to hold and leaves you with standout results. The Silk Epil 5 will remove the shortest hairs you might struggle to catch with wax. What's more, the results will last an impressive four weeks.

The wet and dry design ensures that you can use it when you're in the bath or shower, as well as operating dry too. Using it in water is said to help make it feel a little more comfortable to use, thanks to the massage system which relaxes the skin, that paired with warm water makes it more enjoyable. You can even use shower gel on the legs as you epilate.

There's also a unique anti-slip grip, the convenient rubber grip pad on the body of the epilator means you don’t have to worry about it slipping from your hand.

It works by using 28 tweezers, and they can even pick up hair that's as small as 0.5mm, so you will get silky smooth results. There's also a Skin Contact Cap, this design allows the epilator to move around the curves of your body with ease. You also have a choice of two speed settings, allowing you to adapt the epilator to your individual skin type.


Designed to be used in and out of water, works over the body’s curves, anti-slip design, easy to use, gets rid of really small hairs that waxing can miss

Can be quite painful the first time you use an epilator, but you’ll soon get used to it

Bottom Line

The easy-to-use design of the Braun Silk Epil 5511 epilator is a big draw for this product, the fact you can use it in water and out of water too is ideal for those who are new to this type of hair removal.

The design is easy to grip, so there’s no need to worry it’ll be sliding out of your hand, and the shape of this product means it contours to the shape of your body too, meaning it’ll reach those hard to get areas.

Don’t be put off by the pain experienced with epilation, like waxing, tweezing, threading or any other hair removal you’ll get used to the pain, which eases with time, and the pay off of smooth legs for weeks at a time will definitely pay off.
