Braun Silk-epil 5185 Epilator Pink
- Comfort System: Massage & Cooling
The Silk épil 5 features high-frequency massaging rollers that actively stimulate your skin for extra-gentle epilation. The cooling glove 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 (0.5mm).
- High-Frequency Massage
The high-frequency massage system stimulates the skin and effectively soothes the plucking sensation during epilation to maximize your skin comfort.
- Pivoting Head
The Silk épil 5 features a flexible head that can pivot up to 15 degrees forward and backward. This allows it to better adapt to the contours of the body for greater comfort and maximum thoroughness. It also ensures that optimum usage position is maintained throughout epilation.
- The SoftLift® Tips
The SoftLift® Tips effectively lift even flat-lying hairs and help guide them to the tweezers for removal.
The Smartlight® lights up even the finest hairs so you don't miss any.
- Speed Personalization
Select the right speed for your individual needs: Speed 1 for extra-gentle epilation, Speed 2 for high-efficiency epilation.

1.) Turning on: Press one of the lock keys and turn the switch clockwise to select your preferred speed setting: «I» = extra gentle or «II» = extra efficient. The «smartlight» comes on instantly and shines as long as the appliance is switched on. It reproduces an almost daylight condition, thus revealing even the finest hair and giving you a better control for improved epilation efficiency. 2.) How to guide the appliance: Always stretch your skin when epilating. Always make sure that the epilation area between the massaging rollers is in contact with your skin. The pivoting caps automatically adapt to the contour of your skin. Guide the appliance in a slow, continuous movement without pressure against the hair growth, in the direction of the switch. As hair can grow in different directions, it may also be helpful to guide the appliance in different directions to achieve optimum results. The pulsating movement of the massaging rollers stimulate and relax the skin for a gentler epilation. If you are used to the sensation of epilation and prefer a faster way of removing hair, attach the EfficiencyPro cap replacing the massage system. 3.) Leg epilation: Epilate your legs from the lower leg in an upward direction. When epilating behind the knee, keep the leg stretched out straight. 4.) Underarm and bikini line epilation: For this specific application, the underarm cap has been developed as an optional attachment to be placed on the epilation head. Please be aware that especially at the beginning, these areas are particularly sensitive to pain. Therefore, we recommend that you select speed setting «I» for the first few epilation processes. With repeated usage the pain sensation will diminish. For more comfort, ensure that the hair is at the optimum length of 2–5 mm. Before epilating, thoroughly clean the respective area to remove residues (like deodorant). Then carefully dab dry with a towel. When epilating the underarm, keep your arm raised up so that the skin is stretched and guide the appliance in different directions. As skin may be more sensitive directly after epilation, avoid using irritating substances such as deodorants with alcohol.

Do not exchange or manipulate any part of it. Otherwise there is risk of electric shock. This appliance is suitable for use in a bath or shower. For safety reasons, it can only be operated cordlessly. This appliance is not intended for use by children or persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, unless they are given supervision by a person responsible for their safety. In general, we recommend that you keep the appliance out of reach of children. When switched on, the appliance must never come in contact with the hair on your head, eyelashes, ribbons, etc. to prevent any danger of injury as well as to prevent blockage or damage to the appliance. Never use the epilation head without cap. General information on epilation: All methods of hair removal at the root can lead to in-growing hair and irritation (e.g. itching, discomfort and reddening of the skin) depending on the condition of the skin and hair. This is a normal reaction and should quickly disappear, but may be stronger when you are removing hair at the root for the first few times or if you have sensitive skin. If, after 36 hours, the skin still shows irritation, we recommend that you contact your physician. In general, the skin reaction and the sensation of pain tend to diminish considerably with the repeated use of Silk·épil. In some cases inflammation of the skin could occur when bacteria penetrate the skin (e.g. when sliding the appliance over the skin). Thorough cleaning of the epilation head before each use will minimize the risk of infection. If you have any doubts about using this appliance, please consult your physician. In the following cases, this appliance should only be used after prior consultation with a physician: Eczema, wounds, inflamed skin reactions such as folliculitis (purulent hair follicles), and varicose veins, around moles, reduced immunity of the skin (e.g. diabetes mellitus, during pregnancy, Raynaud’s disease, haemophilia, candida, or immune deficiency.)
