The gentler way to the smoothest skin

Skin has never looked so smooth

Braun Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry

If you thought waxing was the best way to achieve the smoothest skin, think again. The Braun Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry epilator has 40 tweezers that literally get to the root of the problem, capturing and removing unwanted hair as short as a grain of sand – that’s 4 times shorter hair than waxing.

It’s virtually painless to use, in or out of the shower, and CloseGrip technology makes it a breeze to handle. There’s even a bonus bikini trimmer included for precision styling and the most perfect bikini line – no irritation, no nicks, no worries.

Upgrade

I have had 3 previous models and love them. My current one is in need of an upgrade soon as starting to loose its charge and speed hence not giving 5/5 but when new was fantastic. Will certainly stick with the brand.

Epilator - try again

It has been 15 years since I last used an epilator - il be honest the last time was so excruciating I vowed it would be the last. I decided to initially try it dry, strangely enough the pain was no where near what I remembered. In fact it was quite satisfying and I was left with smooth legs! Smoother than when shaving with a razor - I can only guess this is because the hairs are plucked rather than cut! I must shaved my legs every three days - however I'm five days after using the epilator and still hair free!! I amazed! I would say though that after using it dry make sure you moisturiser thoroughly! I'm converted!

Long lasting effects and simple to use

The epilwtor unit has been well designed so it sits comfortably in your hand and the controls have been well placed to allow you to easily change through the different speed settings with ease. The range of attachments included mean that was always an option available for whatever area I was trying to treat. The shaver head is a great addition to help trim longer hair pre-epilation. As I have sensitive skin the sensitive area cap was a great addition for me, especially when using this on my underarms. I have to say the experience is not pain free but it is more a short discomfort than an unbearable pain. I also found that the fact that I could use the epilator in the shower was a huge benefit and increased the efficiency. Overall I was really impressed with this product and found the results long lasting as promised. It does take time to get everywhere hair free but since the results last a while it's worth the time. I only wish that there had been an option to plug this in to charge the batteries instead of having to change them so I could ensure the epilator always had a full charge. Out with that this is a well designed product with a selection of very useful attachments. The results are as promised and long lasting.

Game changer!

Oh wow. Where do I start?! First of all, I already have an epilator. One that needs to be plugged into electrics and my bathroom has no sockets, plus it is really hard to clean as you can't pull it apart. That being said, I used it a couple of times and it's been collecting dust for a good few years now. I was thrilled to try the new Braun Silk-Épil. Not only is it cordless, it's waterproof and had lots of accessories. It really didn't disappoint. I can use it in the shower, which means cleaning it is super quick and easy and I won't have stray hairs all over my floors. The battery lasts long enough to epilate my legs, bikini area and armpits two times over and charging only takes a few hours. Now for the efficiency; top marks here. Pulls out not only the thick, course hairs, but also the white, fluffier ones. You do have to go over each area a few times but it's still a very quick process and since the hair is being pulled out by the root, not only will it take much longer for it to grow back, the hair also grows back softer and gradually will reduce in volume. For best results I would always recommend exfoliating the area thorougly before use and make sure the epilator is clean. Use it in the shower as the water opens up the pores and means the hairs will come out more easily. Personally, I apply tea tree oil after any form of hair removal as it's anti bacterial so will help you to avoid any bumps or ingrown hairs when the hair eventually grows back. As for pain levels; no issue here. Best way I can describe it is as if someone were holding an elastic band close to your skin and pulled two inches away and realeased. Legs are super easy, bikini area a little trickier but you get used to it really quickly. The bikini trimmer is super handy too for those of you that like a 'landing strip' but I also used it to trim my eyebrows. Make sure you moisturise well afterwards and if the area becomes red and irratated, like happened to me the first couple of times, anything cold will stop the slight itch that might come with it but you'd get it far worse from a wax as that not only irritates the hair follicle but the skin as well. Any redness and/or itch will go down within a couple of hours. All in all a fantastic device that any lady not only deserves but needs. Beauty is pain after all but with Braun Skil-Épil it's completely worth it. Highly recommend, 6 stars if I could.

Totally versatile

This is amazing to use in place of wet shaving in the bath/shower! I can't believe now that I never braved trying an epilator before now, seriously the idea of it is just not accurate. It really isn't painful on short hairs & the results are fabulous. When you add up how much time & money you spend on salons and disposable beauty stuff, despite the initial outlay, it really isn't a bad deal. It does everything and I am in love with the bikini trimmer too - it's an amazing gadget! Seriously I cannot recommend the product highly enough, it's fab.

Braun silk-epil 7

I can't recommend this epilator enough! It's almost pain free and it leaves tour legs smooth and bump free. The bikini trimmer that comes with it it's great for that sensitive area. The best thing about it for me is the fact that you can use it in the shower. It's quick and gives saloon results. I'm never going back to shaving. I love love this epilator and I highly recommend it. I wish i knew about it years ago.

Braun Silk-Epil 7

I love love love this braun epilator. For years and years i've used razors for shaving and never thaught of trying an epilator, mostly because of the pain i thought it might cause. I was very pleasantly surprised by the fact that actually it's almost pain free . Not to mention the fact that it can be used in the shower!! Woowww. It's such a life saver. No more shaving my legs every day. Once a week is more than enough. The only down thing is that i had a few ingrown hairs but that was easily sorted with a good scrub. All in all I highly recommend this epilator to all women who are fed up with shaving their legs.

Smooth and bump free

Over the last few weeks I have been using both the epilator and trimmer on my bikini area, for years I have used a hair removal cream on this area as I was scared of getting the sore bumpy skin I had experienced from a previous epilator I had used years ago. The trimmer is just the right size to prepare the area and the epilator is smooth, quick and after a few uses pretty much discomfort free. I've found that just holding my skin taught with my spare hand does the trick, I also use a lower setting. This has been a real find for me!

It's waterproof!

In my previous review I had tested the Braun Silk-epil on dry skin and was impressed with the results. This time I decided to give it a go on wet skin. This feature is so handy - being able to use an epil in the shower means less pain (due hot water helping to open pores) and less awkward hair removal. Super convenient way to keep skin smooth. It also means that you can clean the epil really well under hot water without worrying about breaking it. I wasn't much of an epilator before this product but now I'm saying goodbye to my razor!

Few weeks in - I'm an epilator convert!

I've now been using my Brain silk epil 7 for a couple of weeks and I am an absolute convert. After the first few lines up your leg the pain, which is mild anyway, subsides and this only improves with multiple uses. I've definitely noticed the hairs are getting finer and the regrowth is much less. The epilator is so easy to use and charges very quickly. I've managed to do whole legs without the need to recharge too so the battery does last for long enough! I won't look back now-epilating with the Braun silk epil 7 is the way forward and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

Keeping it smooth..

Iv always wondered about the Braun Silk-epil, so when I had chance to test it I jumped at it. Iv recently had my fourth baby and so I don't always have time to lounge in the bath shaving. I would recommend that you read all the instructions as there are lots of parts. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. As I hadn't shaved in a while I trimmed the hair on my legs down as per instructions. (I did try using the Silk-epil on the long hair but it is painful ! not recommended) It takes getting used to your hairs being pulled out, but you get used to it. I loved the bikini trimmer. Usually after shaving the bikini line with a razor, I found the area itched for days. I had no itching after using the bikini trimmer. It was quick to use this bikini trimmer. The shaver head attachment was great for shaving underarms. After thinking about how many plastic razors go into the landfill each year, a product like the Braun Silk-epil make sense to reduce plastic waste. It is also healthier for your skin. I would recommend this product. Braun have always had high quality products that last years.

I love my Braun Skil-Epil

I think I couldn't live without my Braun Skil-Epil 7 7-561 with its 8 extras including the most needed bikini trimmer. It saves me enormous time throughout the month but above all it achieves great results and my hairs take longer to grow with the epilation than if I kept on using the traditional razor. Unlike the razor, I don't have to epilate every day. I use mine once a week and it is more than enough. I have been recommended to my friends, colleagues and some members of my family. Love it.

1st time user

I received this product in winter, so the hair on my legs was longer than the maximum length suggested in the instructions. I decided to take the risk and try it anyway. I have never used an epilator before, so I cannot compare the level of pain to other epilators. The first touch to my leg was very painful and I wondered how I would manage to do both legs, but I soon got used to it. I don't think it took much longer than shaving with an electric shaver. I also used it on my underarms using the attachment for sensitive areas. I was not very careful and cut myself a fair bit under my arms, but I think it should be possible to become more skilled at this. I am definitely going to try to become more skilled, as the length of time it takes for hairs to grow back is much greater than with my shaver which is a big selling point for me. The light on the product was a nice touch which helped me to not miss too many hairs, especially as the instructions suggested using the epilator in the evening in case of redness. I struggled to work out what the attachments all do. It is not clear in the instructions. It does list what they do on the side of the box, so do not throw it away. I am delighted that this product also has an electric shaver head with a trimmer cap, but I am not sure it can replace my current Braun electric shaver as it does not come with the glide cap I am used to using. The mini bikini trimmer works well. Overall, this is a good product that I will keep using.

Fuss free defuzzing!

I have been using an epilator on and off for probably around 15 years. Not consistently as I do have quite a lazy streak which will just grab a razor for when I need a quick sorting but for that bit of extra effort, I have always liked an epilator for its smooth finish and for that extra few weeks of being hair free. In fact, my current epilator (only my 2nd ever) was a braun silk-epil so I am already a fan of the brand so I didn’t expect any surprises with this product. How wrong was I? Braun Silk-epil 7 is a different beast from my previous one. Firstly, you do not just plug and go! This epilator required charging. It was only a lovely rechargeable device. No cord! Epilation freedom, something that I had never had before. This lesson told me that I needed to read the instructions first. The device charged up really quickly. I think it was less than a couple of hours and it was ready to go. I loved the freedom this gave me as I could now do this in the bathroom where hairs can be swept up easily rather than trying to get them out the carpet. I found the performance good especially on shorter hairs. Some slightly longer hairs required going over a couple of times to be zapped away but it was pretty quick and effortless. On shorter hairs, it zipped through them and I found it really efficient. In terms of pain, it was ok on legs. I always use it straight out the shower and find that that makes it easier and less painful. I tend to find it more of a discomfort than a pain and it is so short lived that it really doesn’t bother me on my legs. Underarms and bikini line then I don’t use this. I have not managed to find a tolerable pain level on these areas and this device was sadly no different. The bikini line was sorted though as included in this package was a bikini trimmer which was amazing. It was so small (think toothbrush size), required 1 battery but oh my, it was the perfect answer as it trimmed that additional hair that we all wish we didn’t have quickly, effortlessly and painfree. I loved this and it is so small that it will fit in your bag to take away on holiday so this is now my new favourite device. This epilator came with quite a few extra attachments. I did try the underarm one but as mentioned above, this is still a no no for me. Too unpleasant and I will stick with a razor but there was a shaving head attachment which is perfect for underarm or when you just want to do a quick whiz over. It isn’t any quicker than a razor but it is better if you are not having a shower or bath so can just be a quick solution for a tidy up. Battery life seems decent. I have managed to use it a few times before needing a recharge and the instructions recommend topping up the charge after each use. The little bag was a good size to store everything in so I won’t lose anything hopefully. The draw string does come open a bit too easily but that really is a minor niggle. All in all, I really liked this product and the bonus addition of the bikini trimmer was superb. I can only give it full marks as can’t fault the device. I would have liked to be able to use it on underarms but that is a limitation on my part as I just can’t bear the pain there but for others it could be the perfect addition to their regime.

A close shave?

I am really pleased to have been chosen to review the Braun Silk·épil 7 having never used an epilator before, it was a new experience for me. The Braun Silk·épil 7 is a great bit of kit with plenty of different attachments included in it. In the box you get The epilator Charging cable High frequency massage cap Efficiency cap Sensitive area cap Facial cap Shaver head with trimmer head The Braun Silk·épil 7 is also very nice to look at, in white with glittery areas it's a pretty bit of kit. It is also nice to hold and even with wet hands I feel like I'm in full control of it. I first used the epilator on my legs whilst in the bath, I thought it was really easy to use and relatively pain free and although it took longer than it would if I was using my usual disposable razor the results were definitely worth it. Almost two weeks later and the regrowth has only just started. I wasn't brave enough to try the Braun Silk·épil 7 on my underarms so I thought I would use the shaver head attachment. It was easy to switch between the two attachments even though I had wet hands from being in the bath. The light on the Braun Silk·épil 7 meant it was very easy to see if I had missed any areas. I have never found that electric shavers get as close a shave as a traditional razor but the Braun does a very good job and I would say that it is probably the best electric razor I have used. I would definitely recommend the Braun Silk·épil 7 to my friends.

A fantastic little gem!

Being rather disappointed with epilators that I had used in the past, I was keen to try out the new Braun Silk-épil 7 7-561 with 8 extras including bikini trimmer. Although I was initially baffled by the number of attachments that it came with, it didn't take me long to figure out what these were for. As I had neglected myself for so long (ahem!), I had planned to use the epilator on my legs, arms and armpits, but was unsure if it would be able to run the full course - I was clearly wrong! Much to my delight, I found the Silk-épil 7 7-561 to be incredibly fast, allowing it to cover a large surface area in a short space of time. Also, unlike other epilators, there was no need to go over the same area again - efficient indeed! The bikini trimmer (battery included) is also a nice addition and did a beautiful job when I was unable to visit my waxing salon, perfect for holidays too! The new Braun Silk-épil 7 7-561 is an all round winner - hats off to Braun!

Massage head and light a big plus

I've been trying out the new Braun Silk Epil 7 wet & dry for the past few weeks. Having owned a previous version of this epilator (which spent most of its time gathering dust as I found it too painful to use) I was eager to see what differences there were in this new version. This version comes with various attachments which include; epilator heads (massage and efficiency), shaver attachment (with trimmer cover), bikini trimmer and a facial epilator adaptor. The epilator heads can be used wet but the shaver head can't (though I'm not sure why maybe it's less watertight). I have only used the massage epilator head (which apparently is the less painful of the two heads (!) and the one recommended for beginners), I have to say though it did seem to be a lot less painful then I remember with the older version, and after a while the feeling was more of a tickle than a pain so I do think the massage head makes a difference. The light on the main unit is also a big plus for me as it makes it so much easier to see the hairs, especially the really short one (which the epilator does manage to get). I have had quite a few ingrowing hairs after using it, but I'm hoping that will improve over time. The shaver head is as expected, not quite as good as a razor shave but handy if you don't have time to do a full job with the epilator, and the bikini trimmer is quite good for tidying things up (and even comes with a battery supplied). I used the facial epilator head, which did work well however I some how managed to take some of my skin off when using it, which was rather painful but luckily it's not scarred and I'll definitely take more care if I use it again. The battery lasts long enough to do both legs plus other areas, and there is a handy little bag to put everything in. Overall a good product which I will continue to use.

Braun Silk-épil

After having never used an epilator before I was already impressed. I decided to give it a try in the shower, after reading the instructions I felt confident in using it in the shower. I made sure it was fully chraged as advised and away I went. I didn't find it as effective in the shower as I first thought. There was barely any pain which I was really impressed with but I didn't feel that it removed the hair as effectively. I found that I needed to go over the same areas two or three times but when using it dry it worked well going over the area once. I also found that it didn't leave my skin looking red and rash like which it does using it dry. This is a really good product and would definitely recommend it to anyone that has never used an epilator before and wants to give it a try.

Braun Silk-epil 7 Wet & Dry Epilator

Nearly 4 weeks on and I am loving my Braun Silk-epil 7 Wet & Dry Epilator. After the first go I was surprised at how long it took for the hairs to start reappearing and how efficiently the Epilator worked on short hairs. I did find it easier to use if I stretched the skin, especially on my underarms and upper lip. The charge lasts for ages and didn't run out after epilating both legs, underarms and upper lip. One thing I would have found useful would be for the heads to be numbered and those numbers added to the manual to show which head is to be used for which part of the.body. No return to waxing for me, this Epilator does everything I need, including saving me money!

Silky smooth

Having used the Braun Silk-epil 7 with the added extras for a few weeks now I haven't changed my mind. It's so easy to use and absolutely pain free. I get a much smoother feel than when I use a razor and it takes the same amount of time, perhaps even less, than using a razor. I would recommend this product to anyone who shaves their legs regularly to get rid of the stubble. The attachment are easy to use and easy to clean An amazing product that has converted this razor for life girl completely. You can see from the photo the before and after effects. Go on, try it, you know you want to.

I always thought that epilator can only be painful way of hair removal without any special advantages until I tried Braun Silk-épil 7 7-561. I am so excited how easily you can remove even short hairs from the roots that means you can enjoy the smooth skin for few weeks. I'm so happy I found this product, it's so easy to use, it doesn't waste your time and it lets you enjoy the really smooth skin for weeks! Product that every woman must have!

On the fence

The Braun Silk.epil 7 is the first epilator I've every tried and I have to say I was nervous but pretty happy to give it a go. I'd been told by a friend that it could be uncomfortable but it gets easier Sadly it seems I'm more than a bit sensitive. I found it extremely uncomfortable and the Ieg I tried it was stinging for a good hour afterwards and the red blotchiness didn't got for another hour after that. Two weeks later it's still soft and smooth but I don't think its for me. The product its self is very well made and can be used wet or dry. It only takes about an hour to charge but you'll need to buy an adaptor if you don't have a shaving socket. It comes with a variety of attachments but if you're a epilator newbie it's not entirely clear exactly what they all for. The instructions that come with the epilator are very lacking and aren't clear to me at all. In conclusion if you're an experienced epilator fan then I think this one could be for you. I'm still on the fence about it.

A couple of weeks have passed...

As I was a complete newbie to epilation, I was super nervous when using this a couple of weeks back. As per my previous review I needn't have worried and I was really pleased with the immediate results. A couple of weeks have now passed and one of the biggest bonuses for me is that my underarms are much less red and irritated than when I was using a razor every day - the initial discomfort was well worth it! Another plus (over waxing) is that when I do see some regrowth, it's a really quick job to do a 'touch up'. I'd definitely say that the advice in the instruction booklet to charge the devidence after each use is well worth sticking to - I did notice a difference in speed having not charged it since my initial use. Overall I think I'm a convert - it's the best combination of convenience and long-lasting results I've found for hair removal.

Great bikini trimmer & good epilator set

I was pretty excited to start using the Braun Silk-épil 7 7-561 with bikini trimmer - and when it turned up even more so! As I was moving house, I decided to throw everything else away so I would have no choice but use the new Braun - at the time potentially hasty, but overall it's worked out well! On opening the box, I was initially frightened by the number of heads to the epilator that I'd need to get my head around. However, flicking through the manuals it seemed a little more manageable with only a couple being required day-to-day. The first obstacle was the charger not being for UK plugs - and having just moved, there wasn't a chance I'd find an EU adaptor for the machine. This delayed my dreams of epilating immediately. Not sure if this is just with the one I was sent - assuming the ones sold in the UK would usually come with UK plugs and therefore be ready to use then and there! However, the bikini trimmer is battery operated - and there is a AAA battery provided in the box. This meant immediate use of that tiny tool - and what a great one! It is fast and efficient - I don't know why I've never invested in something so small before - it really gets the job done quickly! Perfect for travelling with too as I'm assuming the battery would mean it could last longer too. My only criticism was it couldn't be used wet yet the rest of the system can - but that's not too much of a pain as it's used so easy and quickly before a shower! Happy to replace my bulky bikini trimmer from the past with this much more sleek update! As all reviews say, when starting to epilate either for the first time or if you haven't in a while, it can be painful. I had epilated in the past and had found it painful but persevered at the time, though eventually just went back to shaving. However, I'm much more keen to give the Braun a go having seen other reviews on this particular epilator. So, while it was slightly painful to start, I'm looking forward to less pain and less hair to manage! Might be some time away - but I'm on my way.

Beauty must!!

I've never used an epilator before and to be honest I put off using it due to other people's past experiences with an epliator. But I don't know what all the fuss about pain and discomfort is, it was painless and the results have been great, compared to shaving I find it a little longer to shave my legs but the results last along longer and my ingrown hairs have nearly gone. I've not taken the plunge and used it on my face or underarms yet but as it's not painful in my legs I don't see why I wouldn't use it on my face in the future. The actual look of the Braun epilator is great, good quality, sleek and so many extras included to cover all my shaving needs. The additional bikini trimmer is great and handy to take travelling if needed. I've been converted to the epilator and I now only use my razor on my underarms a I noticed how much less I'm shaving my legs due to the effectiveness of the epilator.

Bye bye bikini

On opening my package I was surprised to find a tiny bikini trimmer as one of the added bonus in my silkepil 7 epilator. It was so small and I'm talking toothbrush size here that I thought it wouldn't be much good. It seemed too small, too delicate to be an effective tool and it only took 1 AA battery so hardly powerful. Switching it on, it buzzed away and off I went and oh my! This product is life changing for me. It was so quick, totally painfree and I have had no irritation or rash. I had to stop using a razor as I came up with an unsightly rash and the irritation was unbearable. Hair removal cream was another rash disaster and for the last 10 years I have been using a bikini trimmer but one that looks more like a pink beard trimmer as it's huge, slow and does the job but no where near as well as this. This was so quick and I've had no smooth. Weeks in and I'm still a very happy bunny with this product. It is small enough to throw in your toilet bag to take away so. I more worries about stubble and the do I don't I quandary before a holiday about whether to wax or not (too painful!). Problem solved and I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. I will be looking after this and using it week in week out. Battery has lasted so far so no complaints there either. Thank you Braun, never been so happy to talk about my bikini line

Leave your preconceptions at the door

In my head an epilator would hurt, so I had to really brace myself for using it. However I regularly get my legs waxed, so really I should already have a clue though! Actually if you pull the skin tight just like waxing, it wasn't really painful, it was different and you have get used to the sensation, but tolerable. I have to say I found all the different bits a little overwhelming, but it does mean that it will cover everything, instead of having to buy different products for different areas. The storage bag is an excellent bonus too, and the instructions were clear and easy to use. I have to say that it is exactly what it claims to be, and really worth getting, but it is a gamble if you think you'll not be able to use it on even your legs! Also the bikini trimmer as an added extra is completely genius! Such a good idea.

Painful but not bad.

I've always avoided epilators because of the fear they'd hurt. Well its true, it really does hurt! It felt like a bunch of teeny tiny electric shocks, and afterwards my skin was pretty red and sore( only lasted a few hours though). Using it under running water was actually really good - the hot water helped the pain (didn't get rid of it completely - but made it more bearable). The results were good though - smooth skin and it did seem to last longer than normal - not sure i'd say 4 weeks though, more like 2! Would I use it again? Possibly - i've heard the pain gets less with each use so maybe if i persevere, it'll get better! Although, i will say it also takes a lot longer than shaving or waxing! What did I like? I really like the different attachments and the "bikini trimmer" - although for me its been used to shape my eyebrows! I also like the design too. What didn't I like? The pain! and also the fact that it doesn't come with a mains adapter (the charge does seem to last a while though) Verdict -- Painful but effective! No Pain No Gain though!

Does a brilliant job but...

I was impressed with the job this shaver did, having never tried using anything like it before. It wasn't really painful - no more than plucking your eyebrows really! I preferred the dry shave to the wet shave because it seemed quicker although there wasn't much difference in the quality of shave. The only thing I would say is that using it was quite time consuming and I would probably go back to using a disposable razor most of the time - I'm a working mum with not a lot of spare time!!

Ouch but worth a try

I've never tried an epilator before so I was t even completely sure what to expect! It comes well packaged in a clearly labelled box. The epilator itself is sleek white and sparkle design with handy light and is easy to hold. It's not too noisy when you switch it on and comes with various attachments, I had to read up on the box what each was for as there are so many ! I tried it on my legs first and wasn't prepared for the pulling discomfort , it's like several tweezers pulling at the same time! Because of this it took me a long time to do one leg as I had to keep stopping. It does however leave legs smooth and hair free for a several days. I have been trying it out again and again I'm getting quicker and more used to it now. It looks great on the dressing table next to the handy bag of attachments. I've also been using the bikini trimmer and I really like that it's painless and so handy to use from a tidy to a trim will defiantly keep using it !

Braun Silk-epil 7 Wet & Dry Epilator

I previously used an older model of Epilator which didn't produce the results I wanted and was quite painful so I moved onto waxing. I was looking forward to trying the Braun Silk-epil 7 Epilator and wasn't disappointed, it was quick, with great results and virtually pain free. I started on my legs and the few hairs I missed first time were picked up by the light leaving my legs hair free and very smooth. I then, rather apprehensively, moved onto my underarms where, again, I had hardly any pain and was left with lovely smooth skin. Next I tried my bikini line which, due to my "muffin top" I found a little difficult so this was where the bikini trimmer came in to use and produced the results I was looking for. I tried the Epilator both wet and dry with similar results but my preference is dry. I like it that some "sparkle" has been added to the Epilator to make it look more girlie. All round great results so no more waxing for me!

Better than I thought, worth a try

For the last 16 years I have waxed, mainly due to being a beauty therapist, so I would never go back to shaving . When I was early teens I got a lady shaver for Christmas and I can remember it was such a relentless task, so when this campaign came in I was really intrigued to see how they have improved. I was due to wax so in hindsight my leg hair may have been to long but I gave it ago, personally there were too many heads and the instructions were confusing for which ones they were for! I would say within 15 mins I had completed both legs , some areas I had to go over several times as it wasn't oicking the hair up straight way, but overall with abit of discomfort it was finished, and I was really pleased with the slow growth back. I then decided to try my underarm, however on each arm I manage to graze the skin with shaver , so that has put me off using it on that area again as was too scared to try my upper lip! The extra bikini trimmer was excellent and that will be used regularly. I will keep continuing to use the Braun Silk-epic 7 7-561 especially through the summer when I can't wait to6-8 weeks to wax this is a great step gap.

Ooh that smarts a little

So the Braun Silk-épil 7 7-561 with 8 extras including bikini trimmer is fab. It has a super comfortable grip and if you want a bit of sparkle it has that too and of course the guide light is a fabulous feature as it really does highlight those finer hairs we all have. I love both the Shaver and Epilator attachments for my legs however I don't like so much the attachments for the more 'delicate' areas.. I used the smallest one first on my armpit and I am so glad I only did a tiny bit of area, OMG the pain was immense, it really brought tears to my eyes, I think first time out you need to get someone else to help and stretch the area so it can glide better but as I was too afraid to try again so I gave up that idea but the Shaver attachment was perfect and that I will use on my armpits. I don't think I would ever try this on my face though as I would be too scared of the outcome.. On the whole a very well designed item that I will continue to use..

Braun dry & wet epilator

I used to wax always but I had a friend who actually talked to me about this epilator, so when this campaign came up I was so happy that I was able to try it!! It is very handy that you can use it in the shower and the light helps to see where you are missing some hairs. The hair comes out perfectly and it takes a long time to grow back again, same as waxing! It doesn't take me long to do it, so I love it. I will be using this from now on

Great Results - still sore!

I've used many different epilators in the past and they have all been extremely painful and time-consuming. I usually wax my legs/underarms/top lip & chin so I feel I have a rather high pain threshold but in the past epilating has just seemed too painful! Due to this, I was sceptical when I unpacked the Braun Silk-epil epilator. This epilator has various different heads and also a bikini trimmer included. I attached a large head and took the epliator into the shower and tried it on my legs and underarms. I was pleasantly surprised as although I could still feel the hairs tugging on my legs it wasn't sore and once I got into the swing of things it seemed to be a breeze. After 15 minutes both legs (only bottom halves) and both underarms were hair free. I think that the heat in the shower may help ease the pain and I am delighted with the results! Although, after my shower that same night I decided to try the epilator on my top lip & chin. I didn't fancy trying this in the shower without a mirror. I changed the head to the recommended face one and started on my top lip. Ouch! It brought back all my painful memories of epilators, this may be because I used it outside the shower or maybe it's just more painful on my face I'm not sure. I will continue to use the Braun Silk-epil on my legs and underarms in the shower, but will not be using it on my face. The bikini trimmer is fantastic - much better than other ones available and is quick and easy to use. Just what you'd expect from a bikini trimmer.

Ouch.....Too painful

I have always wanted to try an epilator as my hair grows fast however this is much to painful for me. I used the razor attachment but this didn't keep my legs smooth for long, only a couple of days. The trimmer attachments are good and I will continue to use these and I loved the light on the product, that's a great bonus.

Worth the pain

I'm not going to lie, this DOES hurt. BUT the results lasted longer than my usual shaving or waxing. I managed nearly three weeks between treatment on my legs and bikini area so for me that justifies a little bit of pain. However, I was too scared to do my underarms as they are very sensitive and I wasn't feeling brave enough. The bikini trimmer is also excellent- very efficient and neat. The epilator charges very quickly too which is good if you need to go over an area later on.

Still too painful...

So, I have tried epilators in the past, years ago, and found them to just not he worth the pain. I was looking forward to trying a more 'modern' version with the Braun Silk-epil to see if it could change my mind about this torturous form of hair removal. I'm generally too lazy to do anything other than shave due to its convenience, so had to 'prep' for using the silk-epil by growing some good old leg hair (thankfully it's not the weather to be wearing skirts!!) I was glad to see that the silk-epil can pick up even the shortest of hairs so it didn't take too long for my legs to be ready for some hair removal! Side note - the product comes in a great setup, a good range of extra adaptors and in a lovely sparkly white colour, and also with a small bag to keep it all in. The silk-epil can be used wet or dry so I decided to try both, one for each leg! Dry - OUCH...if anyone has had tattoo removal, this is a similar kind of pain! A burning needle sensation. I'm not going to lie, it took me around 3 hours to do one leg due to needed to stop for 10 minutes to rub the stinging areas!l and reprepare myself! To be fair, it did get 80% of the hairs out, leaving only slight redness. Wet - OUCH AGAIN...but slightly less. The warm water of a bath seemed to help slightly with the pain, but it certainly wasn't a relaxing glass of wine and bubbles kind of bath. I wanted to give enough time following using the silk-epil so I could comment on regrowth. Firstly I had two ingrown hairs, this isn't anything to unusual as I always tend to get these from waxing. I would advise a good exfoliate before epilating in future. Regrowth has been similar to what you expect from waxing and other similar methods. Definitely keeps legs hair free for around 2 weeks, and much longer than shaving would. Now apparently epilating gets easier and less painful as time goes on. Therefore I am going to give it a couple more tries as my hair grows back as I would love a longer term hair removal solution. I can't say i was brace enough to epilate bikini line but I tried the little shaver that came with the set and found it to be great and gets close to skin. This has now been stolen by my husband who loves using it for maintaining his beard!! so it must be good. I don't think epilating will ever be painfree but this silk-epil is an improvement on previous epilators and does do what it says on the box.

Great but better instructions needed

I absolutely love this epilator & love that it comes with all the different attachments but although the instructions give a picture of the attachments it doesn't tell you what they are all for. Some are fairly obvious but some face baffled me & im going to have to google to see if I can get more info. I think it's fab that one of the heads changes it into a razor too. I know some people find epilating painful but my pain threshold is quite high so don't mind the odd sting, I did notice that this one doesn't sting as much as some others I've tried. The hairs on my legs were fairly short but it was still really effective at removing them all & my legs stayed nice & smooth for over a week. The little trimming tool is fab too. So overall I love the product but would prefer better instructions regarding the attachments. I will definitely continue to use this on a a regular basis.

Love my epilator

So i have written a review a few weeks ago and said I would return to give details of using the epilator on my legs. I waited until the hairs on my leg had reached the length recommended and planned to use the epilator on them last night. I decided to use it dry as I am not keen on using thing like this is.the shower as it's not very comfortable, even though this can be used in the shower as it's a wet and dry use product. I put the head on the epilator for using on legs and set about using it. I'm not going to lie it was a bit nippy to start with and it doesn't help that I am a bit of a wimp a even at the thought of something maybe hurting. But I found that once I'd been using it a while I got used to the sensation and it was very bearable. It was less sore when I used it on the fastest setting. It took quite a while to do both legs from the knee down. It done a good job of removing the hair from the root and I was happy with the hair removal. So I have used it for underarms, face and legs and was happy with the results of all of it. Also the results from previous use kept me hair free for a good few weeks. I would definatley recommend this epilator and would just say to anyone to persevere as initially it feels slightly uncomfortable but you soon adjust to it and it's far better than shaving as the results last longer.

Still love it

So iv used the epilator on my legs twice now and I was desperate to find a negative about it but on the whole...I can't. From the first time I used it my legs didn't need looking at for 2 weeks and stayed silky smooth that whole time. When I used it again I was quicker and it only took about 20 minutes for both legs and I can honestly say it didn't hurt half as much as the first time. The only negative I can find about this product is I found a couple of ingrowing hairs but if I'm honest this is probably more down to the fact my hairs aren't used to being epilated and I'm sure that after a few times this won't happen. I love the bikini trimmer and it is so quick and easy to use. I love this product so much iv even chucked out my razor as I won't be needing it anymore. Iv told everyone iv come into contact with how great it is and I literally can't put it down at all. The fact I can have 2 weeks hair free makes my life so much easier as a mum to a toddler and I applaud Braun for making a stress free product which has all the adaptors you need for all sorts of hair. I can not recommend this product enough and I certainly will be taking it everywhere with me, especially as it comes with the abroad adapter too! I love it

Silk A-pil!

Using this to do my pre-holiday pamper was an absolute god send. Usually I would either have to pay a fortune for waxing or take razors away and have to shave my legs and everywhere else every morning wasting time I could be lying with a drink in the sun!! I found using this device a second time that I definitely prefer using it in the shower as for me personally the heat of the shower made the hair removal almost unnoticeable so will stick with this routine in future. I cannot recommend this new love in my life enough hair I removed 2 weeks ago is only just returning and I know that over time these hairs will become finer and far easier to remove if they are even noticeable at all. Anyone who has not even tried this hair removal technique should definitely consider buying this product as not only is it almost pain free (the hair removal just feels like a nip and the sensation only lasts a split second) but more importantly lasts so much longer and leaves the lovely smooth finish on your legs that we all dream of. Thank you so much for giving me this great opportunity and for a definite life changer!

Perseverance Pays Off

It took me three attempts before I successfully used the Braun Silk-epil 7 7-561, but I'm glad that I persevered. The things I wish I'd known before using it are: 1) Don't start at the bottom of your leg, near the bone (this is slightly more uncomfortable). If you start where there is more flesh, you get used to the sensation and it is then much easier once nearer to the bottom. 2) Don't use on very long hair - mine was perhaps too long to start with and boy, did I feel it! I used my normal hair removal method and the after three days used the Braun Silk-epil, this as so much more bearable. I now use it every other day (this may seem over the top, but I have found that it is the best for my regrowth. I am hoping this will be reduced over time). 3) Have a wam bath to open up the pores and relax you, the first time you use it. 4) Don't start on full speed. The Braun Silk-epil 7 7-561 has 2 speed settings. Start on the slower setting and build up to fast - i dont use the slow speed now, but it certainly was the best place to start. Other useful info: you need a shaving plug adaptor for the charger. You may experience red blotches on your legs after using it - mine aren't too noticeable after using it this morning, but make sure you check first - if you've got a special night out planned, use it the day before - you don't want your lovely smooth legs and gorgeous outfit to be spoiled by unsightly blotches! Most importantly, enjoy - you wont look back if you persevere!

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
