Everything you need for smooth skin

When the epilator first arrived I must admit I was slightly daunted by all the different parts included. But after a quick read of the instructions it all made sense. The Braun Silk-épil contains everything you need for smooth skin. The main epilator comes with different heads suitable for different areas, legs, body and face. As a newbie to epilation I was very surprised about how little it hurt! After a few goes, I was amazed it felt pretty much pain-free! The kit also comes with a shaving head - which is great for trimming hair so it's short enough to be epilated. The main epilator is rechargeable and plugs into a shaving plug. It even comes with a mini razor which is really useful for reaching tricky areas, this one takes a triple AAA battery but is really powerful & great for traveling. The main epilator is suitable for using in the shower - I haven't tried this yet but seems like a really handy function. The whole set comes in a bag so you can take it on holiday and store it neatly in your bathroom cabinet. After trying the Braun Silk-épil I'm certainly an epilation convert! This set is really all you need for smooth, hair-free skin all over.

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.

Fantastic epilator

I was really impressed with this. Is it able to work on super short hair. I was very pleasantly surprised. I was also amazed to find it really is virtually pain free. It left my legs very smooth and that smoothness lasted for a fantastic amount of time. Absolutely love this.

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.

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.

Smooth skin.

This is a great product. Very easy to use. Either wet in the bath or dry when your not. It's so easy and almost painless to use. Just run it over the area to be epilated. Gets even very small hairs out leaving slilky smooth skin behind. I tried it in the bath , was so easy quite relaxing. Tried the bikini trimmer then I epilated. Got a great result. I was hair free for much longer than if I shaved. When they did reappear I just ran over them quickly, result 'smooth legs again ' much better results than from shaving. Would definitely recommend. The different heads make it easy to do places like underarms etc.

Loving the glitter!

I'm a regular leg shaver and haven't used an epilator or had a leg wax in over ten years so I wasn't optimistic about the Silk-Epil. The majority of my leg hairs are fine and just snap at the surface when they are waxed or epilated which is why I haven't used those methods for many years. I would find that I would need to shave 2 days later.However, I am pleasantly surprised by this little gadget. I used the 'delicate' setting as I didn't want to attempt full blown hair annihilation on the first go in case it did something crazy to my skin. I needn't have worried. It did hurt to start with, a bit like the pain of an elastic band being flicked at you, but I soon got used to it, and it did sting a bit more around the ankles but I was prepared from memories of waxing. I also found that I had to keep going over some areas until all the hairs were gone but I think this was just because I had the odd hair that would grow in a different direction. After a few minutes of using I did get a goose bump effect that looked rather unsightly and it did make me panic but as I moisturised afterwards this did calm the skin down and made it look a bit more attractive. I also epilated at night so that I had those hours for the irritation to subside. It did, and by the morning no more goosebumps. I have found though that in the two weeks since first using this I do get a pink dotty effect on my legs if I have either dry skin or I'm a bit cold. A bit of moisturiser or some warmth and this sorts me out. It is comfortable to hold, not to heavy or big for my hand, has a lovely glittery colouring, which I love, and has the excellent and very useful super bright light to show where the hairs are. This epilator is still not as good as shaving and I knew it wouldn't be as it does not give you completely smooth legs; they're left feeling a bit like sand paper, but I am surprised at how after 2 weeks I've not had to shave and have only had to have a quick once over with the epilator for those few hairs that were too short to be removed on the first go. I wouldn't recommend using this for date night smoothness as you're other half might still think you're a gorilla, I'd stick to a razor, but for all those times when you're just too busy to care then it's very good.I haven't used all of the attachments but over time I'll pluck up the courage to try them out, maybe in the summer when I bare more skin.I also used the bikini trimmer and I have to say it is one of the best I've used. Quite often they can get clogged and regular rinsing is required, but this only needed cleaning once all had been accomplished and it was also quicker. It is a little noisy, but I've never found a quiet one, so that's not really an issue.One problem I had was getting into the box. It was a box that was glued both ends. I thought maybe it would have a tab/flap one end but no. So I had to basically destroy the box to get it out and as I have dodgy joints this was not very easy. I appreciate Braun don't want people taking bit out but as a purchaser it would be nice to get in it without injury. On the plus side of no longer having a usable box I did get a storage pouch for it all. Although a storage box would be better as there are so many attachments the whole lot have to be tipped out when I need to use it and I can envisage there will be a time when bits bounce under the bed, behind the drawers etc and it'll be too much effort to find them and I'll forget about them.

Fantastic product!

I was really apprehensive about using an epilator from hearing countless stories of my friends having disasters or crying from the 'most painful hair removal of their life'. Epilators have come a long way however so I was willing to give this one a go. It was fantastic! Hardly any pain & if you remove the hair in a circular motion (a tip I was given) it was virtually pain free. I love that it can be used wet or dry & that it can be recharged - no need to run around looking for a battery when you have a leg hair emergency! The product comes with a fantastic range of attachments & after removal my skin was left soft & hair free for far longer than it would after shaving. This product is definitely less harsh on the skin, especially on sensitive areas such as the underarm & bikini line. I am a convert!

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.

It's new to me!

I didn't even really know what an epilator was when this campain started so it was all completely new to me. I was impressed by the packaging. It was very clear and concise. The instructions weren't overly clear in parts and I did need to keep going back to the picture explaining what did what a fair bit. That could be because I'd never used one before though. The first use: ouch! Like I explained, I've never used an epilator before and understand it gets easier with each use. There were instructions as to how to make the experience as painless but, mainly as effective as possible. I have used all of the attachments without having a real clue what I was doing and, despite the pain, I was pleased with the results!
