Braun has released the Braun 5270 Epilator for smoother, hair free skin that does not consume much time, and has slower hair regrowth and no stubbles.
Braun 5270 Silk Review
Hair is a person’s crowning glory. That is, if it is in the crown of your head; if it is in other places, it is just unsightly.
This is why there are people buy razors, electric shavers, tweezers or wax.
However, these have drawbacks like stubbles, faster hair regrowth that are even coarser and thicker, pain, ingrown hairs, and even wax burns.
How the Braun 5270 Silk Epil X’elle Works
The Braun 5270 Epilator has 40 small tweezers that removes the hair shaft and roots to prevent faster regrowth of hair.
And because, it removes from the roots instead of cutting the shaft, there are no stubbles left.
It has small massagers that pulses to minimize pain after going through an area. The light can show even the finest hair.
One of the problems with those using the Braun Silk Epil Xelle for the first time will probably be the pain.
Since it pulls the hair out like the regular tweezers, it is painful but with regular use, this lessens as you get used to it.
The pain is actually less compared to manual tweezing or waxing. If you are used to shaving, you might find this quite uncomfortable.
Braun have developed a home hair removal system thats easy to use out home.
How to ease the discomfort with the Braun 5270
In order to minimize the discomfort, you can try applying a warm wet towel to the area you will shave or have a hot shower before doing it.
The moist heat will not only soften the hair but it will also dilate the pores so the hair can be easily pulled out.
Another issue that can arise with the Braun 5270 Silk Epil X’elle is ingrown hair.
This can be prevented by frequent exfoliation and especially before and after using it.
With proper use, there is actually minimal ingrown hair but an ingrown or two cannot be prevented as with regular use of manual tweezers.
Another helpful tip to prevent ingrown hair is to keep your skin moisturized with oil or lotion after hair removal.
Tips for best results
For maximum results, it is wise to pull the skin taut when you run the Braun Silk Epil Xelle over the area.
This will prevent the skin from being pinched. And to completely remove the hair, do not run the epilator too swiftly to give those tiny tweezers enough time to pull out the hair instead of breaking it near the root.
The Braun 5270 has an epilator head that has two attachments you can use; the rollers are useful for new users to keep pain at a minimum, and the advanced user head that keeps the epilator head at a 90 degree angle for easier hair removal.
The later is good for even areas like the legs but makes it difficult for hard to reach areas.
Braun 5270 Features and Design Benefits
This Braun Epilator also has a razor head that has a foil grill and works like the ordinary electric razor.
It has a trimmer that can cut hair that is too long to get into the foil grill so that you get a close shave every time you use it.
The light is an ingenious addition to the Braun 5270 design. With it, seeing very fine hair and as well as newly grown stubble is made easier. You might even find hair in places you don’t expect.
The Braun Silk Epil Xelle has a pouch to put in all the heads and attachments, making it easy to pack when you travel.
Although you might find the cord a bit on the short side, you will find that using it goes a long way to saving up on salon treatment for hair removal. All in all, it’s a good buy.
My wife if really hairy, and they’re not the delicate little hairs most women have. It’s more like heavy underbrush in the woods, except on her legs. Well, she’d been wanting something like this for a while, so I got it for her. I works great! She loves Braun X’elle The hair doesn’t come back for way longer than just shaving. The only issue we have now is sweeping up the huge pile of fallen hair stubs in the bathroom…
loved this product..a little painful at first i admit..but if u concentrate on the end product..then u wont mind the millions of tiny pinches..2nd time was a smooth experience..also the light is a big help..will definitely recommend to everyone…
I have used epilady products for years and was disappointed with the most recent product. This Braun 5270 X’elle epilator is excellent, works efficiently, and is as close to painless as this type of system can be…
I purchased this Braun 5270 for my fiancee, who tends to forget to shave. She had mentioned that she might try it so I bought it for her. Initially it was extremely painful for her and she could only do her legs. She can now do her underarms and bikini area (still hurts, but is hurting less as she uses it more). She only shaves once a week if she remembers… but her legs stay smooth. Thank god
