do the job!

have this for 3 years now (still working!) it is still painfull (let's be honest!) but it is easy to use - wireless and you can use it under the shower. Remove even very short hair and leave skin smooth.

Yes, I recommend this product !

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.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Really quite good

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.]

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.

Serious Silk-epil

My Silk-epil epilator that I received free from Braun has changed my life. Gone are the days of shaving EVERY DAY. Gone are the days of shaving rash. I've put the Silk-Epil through its paces - it has epilated every part of my body with ease. Now, I'm very sensitive in the armpit region so though I'd tried the Silk-epil on my legs and felt no pain, I was still a little apprehensive about trying it on my armpits. I needn't have worried. The heads are small enough that they get into every crease and this is where the powerful little light came into its own; I could see where I was gliding so easily. Although it was a little more tender than when I did my legs, it was not the excruciating experience I expected. I have also used the precision head to get my bikini line summer ready. Again, the light proved very helpful so I could see what I was doing and the epilator is small and light enough to achieve precision hair removal. After use, the unit is very easy to clean as all the pieces come apart. The little brush provided is just the right size to get into the small gaps to clean it and everything is easy to look after with the draw string bag provided. I love my free Braun Silk-epil - it's easy to use, relatively pain free, great for using in the bath, compact and it has a head for every eparea of the body.

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.

Excellent on sensitive skin

I was lucky enough to to try this product for free from Braun.I have to say it is excellent as I hardly felt a thing on my legs.The massage head is great for reducing pain sensation and the close head means even the shortest or finest hairs don't stand a chance.The extra head attachments make this excellent value and the wet/dry feature makes getting ready in the morning a breeze. I think braun have really done their homework as this is the best epilator I have ever used.I also love the little bag to keep it all in. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Smooth to the touch

I have to say I was a little nervous about the using the Braun Silk-épil 7 but I was pleasantly surprised.For many years I have only used razors on my legs and underarms as the last time I went for a wax on my legs it totally put me off.I was trying to figure out what option to use first - do I shave using the shaver head or do I go straight for the epilator? I decided to use both, my right leg the epilator and left leg the shaver.I was a little nervous and just decided to go for it, the first pass over and around the ankle area was little stinging but after a while you did not notice it and as I continued with the rest of my leg I felt nothing, it was great, however not every hair gets 'plucked' first time round so you do need to go over your legs a couple of times to catch the really fine hairs but if you do it over a couple of days it's not problem.As for the shaver attachment I really do like this especially if you are running short of time and can not for whatever reason get the razor and cream out as I have on many occasions fallen foul of the 'Oh I forgot to shave my legs this morning' syndrome.I am so going to be using this from now on.Next is to try and get the courage to use the other attachments on the 'sensitive areas' ie: my armpits..

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 product, I'm delighted!

This is a great little product, and I'm delighted to have received one free to try and review from Braun! The Silk-epil 7 is compact and sleek looking, and the first thing I noticed was how versatile it is - it cones with different attachments meaning you can epilate legs, underarms and face easily. I loved that I could use it wet or dry - it meant I was able to use it in the bath which was great for making the process super comfortable as it softened my legs a bit before I started! It's fairly painless to use, and I found it held it's charge really well. It charges via a shaver plug socket, and after using for 15 mins was still at full charge. One of the great parts to this is that it has a light feature so you can see any tiny hairs you might have missed, I found this really useful for making sure my legs were super smooth! 4 days later and they are still smooth and soft, i'll definitely use this again and would recommend it to everyone even if you've never used an epilator before!
