Summary: This does a great job of catching and eliminating all lengths of hair. Only thing I don't like is it is very hard to turn on and off--looks like a push button but need to turn outside of button to turn it on.
Summary: For 25 years I use wax to remove hair but as I went on vacation for three months I had to find an alternative so I bought the Braun 5280. WOW !! Wonderful, simple, effective, easy to use and to clean, ideal for the traveler. I love it and I recommend it.
Summary: I got this hoping it would keep my legs smooth. Yes is grabs a lot of the hairs but if they are too short, it doesn't do anything. I gave it 4 stars because it does pull out the hairs, it just doesn't get them all. And if you never used one, it does hurt. This is coming from someone with tattoos. It is not unbearable pain but its enough pain for people who can't handle it. My tattoos didn't hurt as bad. It doesn't hurt as bad the more your use it though.
