Typical woman issues. The hairy bits but how best to get rid ?!?! If I shave, I get the shave rash plus I'm doing it every day to keep on top of it. If I wax, I spend a fortnight psyching myself up for it as I have a pitiful pain threshold and up only getting the bottom of my legs done. If I use the hair removing cream, I spend ages trying to not wretch on the smell plus my skin always seems very sensitive and stings afterwards. So when Braun sent me the Braun Silk-epil 7 7-561 for a free tryout, I was dubious I would find the answer to my prayers and would revert back to the usual wet shave. But I was pleasantly surprised. So much so u went and bought one for my mums birthday (and she is one tricky customer and had a very bad experience with a competitor brand in recent weeks.)
The good/great points: aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Great feminine product that compliments my husbands electric razor on our "hisnhers" bathroom shelf. Instructions and box lay out are perfect. Instructions so simple and product is well presented/ protected and laid out very well imbuing for a gift. The charging time is exceptionally fast and the charge holds well. The different speed settings allow you to build up your confidence as your tolerance to the first few 'uncomfortable' sessions, grows.The multitude and diversity of heads is honestly amazing. I honestly thought extra heads were sold as additional products to gain more revenue and just advertised as necessity so people spend the extra money. How wrong I was!!! Each head has a different role to play and give you the closest hair removal. And the best part is they're all included in the price!!! Nice one Braun!! Heads are very to change in between. Just remember to turnover device off....... Which I did not hehe. The head is very is to clean with a neat little brush and the hairs don't get lodged in between the tweezers. Now, the question everyone wants to know. Does it hurt? Answer? Yes and no. Not helpful I know. Haha but on my legs for instance the pain on the first time was significantly reduced by the third time. Same as face. But underarms and bikini for me never really got any easier. But those are extremely sensitive and, as previously said, I have a pitiful pain threshold.
Points worth noting: It did not come with a UK plug adapter and I do not have one in my bathroom/house (very old school of me I know). I did not see this noted on the box and did cause slight inconvenience to go and get one. Also I find on certain heads I have to go over the same area over and over. Changing the angle I pulled it Iver did help combat this.Annnnd charge is slightly less when I use it in the bath. (clutching at straws I know)
But overall, amazing product, and I will not be going back to shaving. Mums got hers all wrapped up and I would be a genuine advocate for anyone considering purchasing one. Do it! It's worth the money [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I was very apprehensive about using an epilator but I thought it was the perfect opportunity to bite the bullet and go for it when Braun offered me a free epilator. I use it both wet and dry and find that being able to use it in the shower really eases any discomfort, and that's all it is, slight discomfort for smooth hair free legs. I also didn't want to wait ages and grow my hair long but I was really impressed with the short hairs it works on. I would definitely recommend it, goodbye razors!!

Despite taking me several days to pluck up the courage to use this, I am now a convert.
Braun kindly sent me the Silk-epil 7 7-561 for testing and after hearing various horror stories about how painful epilators can be, I thought that this was going to be awful. I needn't have worried. This device can be used wet or dry so I could test the waters by using this in the shower first. The epilator is easy to use when wet as it has grippy parts to the design and the wheel to activate the epilator has a good ridged design and a solid feeling click so you can adjust it easily.
The kit comes with the charger (to be used with a shaving point in the bathroom), and also a loads of accessories - a shaving head, and various caps. All are easy to click on and off - best done when dry though.
I have found that there is some discomfort from the epilator but it isn't as bad as I thought it was. I think that this is less painful than waxing as it doesn't affect the skin with the epilator targeting only the hairs.
The results are pretty long lasting too. Instead of shaving daily I am able to epilate just a few times a week. Though I hear that the more I use the epilator, the less I'll have to use it over the longer term. So I look forward to that!
I have to say that the design is pretty compact, and sleek. I like that I can charge this and it lasts for a few uses on my legs and underarms without the need to recharge in between. This makes it easy for travel too if I'm going away for a long period of time.
Overall I have to say throw away those razors and switch to the Braun Silk-epil 7 7-561 because it is life changing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I still love this product. I tried it underarms but I did pull a bit so was uncomfortable so may just stick to my legs. Would still highly recommend. Thank you braun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I got my lovely Braun silk epil 7 7-561 for free from Braun. It looks fab, sparkly cover and has lots of different heads included for face, legs and sensitive areas. The unit itself is really well shaped, fits your hand easily and easy to use/turn on or off/adjust speed or direction. My problem is I'm a wimp. I have tried most types of hair removal and manage when it's someone else but I struggle to do it myself. I have given this a go. I found it nippy but not intolerable. Unfortunately me being me I didn't persevere enough to really see the results. I am going to give it another go as everyone I know who uses an epilator swears by it and Braun are the best.

My first experience with an epilator was borrowing my friend's at age 18. It was horribly painful and I had to drink a glass of wine before I could finish up on my legs. It was like getting an incredibly slow wax. It put me off epilators, but ten years later I thought it was time to give it another go.
This Braun epilator's best feature is that you can use it in the shower or bath. It means you're more relaxed and your pores are open which makes it a much nicer experience. It did take a good 25 minutes to do my legs, but that's probably to be expected.
The other unexpected bonus is the extra heads you get with it so you can use it in other areas. I particularly liked having the shaver head which I used to put some shape back into my layers and even to neaten up my husband's side burns and nape of his neck between hair cuts.
Great product and really nice look and design. Would definitely recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Delighted to have received this Epilator from Braun! Not only is it an epilator which can give hair removal for as long as 4 weeks, but it also has different heads for areas of the body to provide more comfort as well as having a separate shaver attachment!Cant praise this product enough, it is the usual excellent quality you would expect from Braun and looks really sleek! It charges up within an hour and holds charge really well! It also has an indicator on the display that flashes up red when it is time to charge, fab!You will need a shaving adapter plug as it is two pin, unless you have the appropriate socket in your bathroom for shavers.It was far more comfortable than the older style epilators i have previously used especially as you can use in a nice warm bath to relax and soften hairs and make it more comfortable.I did legs and under arms within about 15 minutes so it is quick and effective. A few days on my legs are still silky smooth! I had a mild red rash after treatment as to be expected and it was gone within a few hours.Love it would recommend you won't regret it!

I really enjoyed this product. It was painful but it was a lot better when done in the bath. If the effects last for 4 weeks i cant really complain. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Just thought I'd update after a second use... The experience surprisingly got a lot less painful the second time around. After my tear jerking session the first time I was somewhat dubious to try again but I was pleasantly surprised. Far less painful and legs a lot less red... Smoother longer lasting hair removal than shaving. I tried it in the shower too which was equally bearable, although I'm not sure as successful... I seemed to miss a lot more hairs. A few ingrowers but not too many and the regrowth definitely seems a lot softer. I haven't quite plucked up the courage to try my underarms yet but I'm working on it. One thing is for sure, no more leg shaving for me again now I have my very own Braun-silk epilator. Thank you Braun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have revived my free Braun epil 7 and it looks great it's very well packaged and attractive I like the different heads for it and have just tried it in the shower I have found that it does hurt to start with but over time it eases I have tried the slower speed first until I got used to it and then turned to the higher speed over all I am not overly impressed as I have had to go over the same area five times just to get the hairs. As for what it says about getting the hairs as small as a grain of sand I do not agree as I have left my legs hairs to grow to a small length and it still did not remove all the hairs and I have now been left with red legs and rashes which I don't get with normal razors so my overall rating is 3 stars [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
