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 !

If it hurts at first...bear with it for bare legs!

My previous experience with epilators a few years previously had not been a good one - it felt like each hair was getting slowly plucked out in the most painful manner ever! However, technology has progressed in leaps and bounds since those painful days, and I was therefore very excited to get this free epilator to try from Braun. The first thing that struck me was the range of interchangeable heads, with different attachments for sensitive areas, massage, and even a shaving attachment. So far I have only tried the massage and small area attachments, but I hope to try out the others soon! As soon as I'd ripped open the box with excitement, I plugged the epilator in to charge. I was surprised that it charged so quickly, and feeling enthusiastic, I decided to start epilating my legs there and then. Well - that was a mistake! Even with the skin pulled taut, and breathing that would put a master of zen to shame, the pain was quite overwhelming. I immediately panicked and momentarily thought that epilating was probably just "not for me". However, I'd seen in the instruction book that the epilator was completely waterproof, and could be used in the bath or shower. So I decided to give it another go - I made sure I was suitably wet, lathered up, and turned on the epilator (using the massage attachment) with trepidation. I did one swipe up my leg - and felt nothing. Did another - again, no pain. This was a revelation! I got out of the shower thinking that I must have missed a lot of hairs but on closer inspection, I was smooth as the proverbial baby's bottom. Next time round in the shower, I worked up the courage to try my underarms, using the same methodology as for my legs - again, the pain was minimal, but the epilation was very effective. I used the small area attachment for this as it makes the experience significantly less intense. So far, my regrowth has been minimal, and I imagine that will get even better as I begin to epilate more frequently. The epilator is very easy to detach and rinse, and comes with a handy brush for dusting off any pesky hairs which get stuck in the mechanism My next task is to try out the very small area attachment on my face - wish me luck! I am very happy with this product overall, and am very pleased with the results I'm getting so far :) I can even wear a skirt or dress on a whim without having to remember whether I shaved my legs the day before or not! Thanks Braun! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

If I could offer you one tip for the future..buy this epilator

At first look the Braun Silk-epil epilator is packaged neatly and nicely, with enough gadgets and add ons to satisfy my nerd side. The epilator itself is a great shape and fits ergonomically in your palm and isn't too heavy. Being a wet and dry epilator I decided to try one leg dry and one in the shower as I usually wax my legs I am used to them being smooth and having a long time between having to wax and the hair growing back and wanted to know if this was comparable. Use in the shower does make it less like being pinched over again and it glides smoothly over your legs, after the shower I completed the other leg dry and was pleasantly surprised at how easy and painless it was the light that shines was also a really good idea to help pin point areas that needed special attention. The only disappointment for me is that unlike other hair removal gadgets you do need to go over some areas a few times to make sure the smaller hairs are caught but I think this the nature of epilators in general. The Braun Silk-epil does include a shaver attachment that gives you the option of going over your legs once you are done to make sure they are smooth and touching up between sessions which is fantastic & gives a close shave. It has been over a week and my legs are still smooth, so I am very pleased with the way the Braun Silk-epil has performed and is streets ahead of my old one for comfort, shape & results. I was lucky enough to have tested this for free from Braun as I am not sure this would be in my budget normally but I can see that spending the extra does give you a much better experience than my budget one & will be replacing waxing for me so in the long run is worth the investment as it is a very good alternative to shaving/waxing or creams. So far no problems with ingrowing hairs although I'm still not quite brave enough to try the bikini line yet......all in all I would recommend this highly to those thinking about trying an epilator and suggest you invest in this piece of kit.

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.

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.]

Loving it more and more

I was lucky enough to be selected by Braun to try out their new product for free, the Braun silk-epil 7 7-561. I have now used it a few times and have been very impressed by the battery life! The thing I have been most pleased about though is the fact that my hairs have been coming back finer each time I have epilated, making it less time consuming to epilate each time, less painful (it no longer hurts at all) and I don't have to do it as often either! Fingers crossed one day I won't need to at all at this rate!! I'm all set for summer and couldn't be happier with this product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Should have tried sooner

I recieved this item to test from braun and at first I was put off using this product due to the pain factor  (and mainly because I'm a wimp) but after reading some other reviews I thought I'd use it in the bath and I have to say I was quite surprised I'm not going to lie it hurt a bit but it was more of a discomfort rather than a pain but I didn't notice it after a while (after doing about half of my leg the first time) and I have to say it was definitely worth it the results I got from it were amazing I definitely recommend it especially if you are like me and spend a lot of the time shaving especially in the summer months. Wish I'd have discovered this before it would have saved me a fortune. The only problem I had was that it didn't have a UK charger which is easily rectified.

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!

Fabulously Fuzz Free

I was a bit apprehensive using this epilator as I've used one before many years ago, and it was memorable for all the wrong reasons! But I must say I was very impressed with the Braun Silk-épil 7Lovely looking epilator with attachments for all your hair removal needs. Comes with a nice little storage bag to keep all the attachments together.After charging, which didn’t take long, I decided to jump straight in and go for the legs. My hair was short and was just growing in from a previous waxing. I used the massage head to start with and with some firm pressure and following the instructions started at the bottom of my legs. It took a few goings over but I got a nice hair free patch. The light is very handy as it shows up even the smallest hairs so you know where you need to epilate. Only a little discomfort, but the firmer you press the less painful. Feeling brave I then moved on to the efficiency cap. Still OK but not sure what was so efficient about it in comparison to the massage head. Went back to the massage head and finished both legs. Result!I also used the facial cap and then the precision cap.The bikini trimmer was a great addition to the package.It’s now been 2 weeks since first use and I am still happy with the results.
