What's the difference between foil and rotary shavers?
Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
Can I buy a solo shaver and upgrade with a Clean & Charge Station later?
No, shaver and Clean & Charge Station are designed to interlink during the cleaning procedure. Shavers being sold without the Clean & Charge Station, dont have the technology to connect accordingly.
How often do I need to exchange the Clean & Charge refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver with the Clean & Charge Station twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every 2 to 3 months to experience a shaver like new, every day. The Save & Subscribe option from Amazon allows you to subscribe for a regular home delivery and at the same time save 10% on the price of the Clean & Charge refill. You don't have to think about it and always have a Clean & Charge refill available when you need it.
Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?
We recommend that you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example over a weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. At all times, hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin. In difficult to shave areas like under the nose you can also use the MultiHeadLock switch to lock the shaver head and manually set one of five available shaver head angles as it suits best to your needs. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. To trim sideburns, moustache or beard, Series 5 features an integrated precision trimmer with superior cutting performance. In order to use this comfortable and precise tool, simply slide the trimmer upwards.
How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months.
Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phones or laptops?
No, the Series 5 shavers use a Li-ion battery which has no memory effect. You can recharge it whenever you want and it has a low self-discharge rate (vs. NiMh batteries). Li-Ion batteries are therefore the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.

Removes hair well but has a few negative features
I bought this Silk Epilator in exchange of the same company epilator that I have had for almost 12 years. This one has some very good things like light that gives you the ability to use it in a dim light. I didn't like the switch power. It is hard to grasp, and it easily shifts to the right and left position when you want just have it in neutral. It didn't take for me longer time to use it on both of my legs comparing to my old epilators. I hope it will last as many years as the old ones. I love epilators.
Yes, I recommend this product !

Love the results
Before using the Braun Silk-épil 5 epilator I was having to shave EVERYDAY, and even at that I was left with tiny dark spots all over my legs and underarms from the hair left behind in my pores. With the epilator my legs and underarms now look smooth and truly hairless, best part is that even after 3 days my skin still look amazingly smooth!!! The process is a bit painful but well worth the results. I highly recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind great results in exchange of a little pain.

Very practical although painful
I am actually really impressed with this epilator. Does it hurt? Yes! Does it really pull the hair out from the root? Yes. Does it last longer than shaving? Absolutely. I did a lot of research on this and I have a few tips for those who are starting with their epilators. First off, go and get a wax first. I did a full body wax since I planned on using this on my arms, underarms, and legs. I prefer sugaring since it doesn't leave my skin red and irritated and it seemed to hurt less. A week later, use your epilator. You may get some hair, you may not. But it's better to just try anyways. But all in all braun epilator is just a good experience for me
Yes, I recommend this product !

I was super excited when I got this epilator for free from Braun! I was anxious to try it and opened it up and started using it as soon as I received it in the mail. It was really easy to get started, just plug it in and start pulling. It hurt, but not nearly as much as other epilators I had used in the past. I liked the cute pink carrying case, but my favorite thing was the light on the underside so that you can see all the fine hairs and make sure you get them all! It was very efficient. Now for the negative. It took a long time to get all the hairs, probably 20 or more minutes per leg and I'm not even a hairy person. It promised smooth legs for up to four weeks, but I had stubble again after only 7-8 days. I'm sure the smooth period will increase over time. Also, I wish it had an option to charge it and use it cordlessly so I didn't have to stay tethered to the wall Overall, I was satisfied with the Braun epilator and would recommend it. It got all the hairs. My main complaint is that it took awhile to use and I have an active toddler so I don't have much time to take on myself.
