This Silk Epil 5 Epilator is very good, my legs are still smooth after 4 weeks, and the fact that it has a light it makes it a better epilator. The light helps you to reach spots that probably you'd missed them if you have light hair. I never used the ice glove, but I used the epilator after shower and I've been very happy with the results. Very nice design and color, much better than the boring white one.

Okay, I don't know if I'm using this incorrectly (though i doubt it) or it's just not working on me, but it's seems more so to cut the hair (like a shaver) rather than pluck it out. I feel it plucking some hairs, but for the most part, it's just shaving it. I'll keep giving this a try, but nonetheless it does get rid of body hair. It hurts at first, but just suck it up. Oh and on a side note, the noise this thing makes is excruciatingly LOUD. My whole house can hear use it.

I've been using an epilator now since May, 2011. I recently purchased the Braun Silk epilator to replace my old one. The first few times I got more ingrown hairs than usual, but this could be due to the cold weather too. The light on the Braun really helps find the stragglers that I have usually missed with my old epilator. I don't find that this one hurts any more or less than any other epilator. People have to remember you are pulling hair out of your legs, it's gonna hurt some! The ice glove helps more so after your done epilating to close the pores and cool your legs down (mine are usually itchy afterwards but hurts to scratch), the glove takes care of the itch quite effectively. I don't use either of the attachements that come with it. I don't like to wait for my leg hair to get long enough to be able to use it. I've never pinched my skin because of not using the attachment and it really gets the short hairs when I take the attachement off. Overall I am really happy with this product and would encourage anyone to buy it.

I was concerned about dark spots under my arms and this reduces the occurrence when I am freshly epilated because you cannot see the tiny dark hairs that are just under the skin, unlike with shaving where you just trim the hairs as low as possible. It does hurt if the hairs are too long and I tend t do it two days in a row because I always miss some hairs on the first go. For me it causes a slight bleeding from a few pores and my right underarm is more sensitive than my left!

This epilator itself has never given me any problems and I always clean it right after using but bottom line is: I love it!
