From The Manufacturer

Designed for uninterrupted hair removal in dry conditions, the Silk-épil 5 Power epilator will never let you down. Braun’s specially designed Close-Grip 40 Tweezer epilation technology catches hair as small as a grain of sand (0.5mm), so you’ll never have to wait for your body hair to grow so wax can catch it. No more in-between days, no more hassle. Features on or off switch with 12 volt adapter and cord set automatically adapts to any worldwide ac voltage. Note-as hair does not always grow in the same direction, guide the appliance slightly diagonally or in different directions in order to achieve results

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Another unique feature is the SmartLight. This actually lights up your skin so you can see if you have removed all hairs.
To ensure that you get a gentle epilation experience, this epilator also features a unique Dual Comfort System. It includes both massage rollers, and a cooling ice glove, to cool the skin before epilation, and sooth it afterward, to further improve your comfort.

The SmartLight illuminates the area so that you can see all the spots you need to go over.
The Smartlight innovation to see every single hair strand so that you will not have to go back to the bathroom to remove some missed strands.

What reviewers didn't like

Doesn’t remove hair as well as those with more tweezers.
- Heavy
The downside of this epilator is that it is not waterproof.
Given that the older Silk Epil 5 Power is comparatively priced with the much newer Wet&Dry models, and not only performs worse but is not waterproof, we recommend skipping over this model.
