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.

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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!

Pleasantly surprised

First thing I need to say is that when I told my friends that I had been accepted to try and review the silk-epil they all wished my luck and one shuddered at the thought of using an epilator. Having never used one myself I was nervous but could not pass up this amazing opportunity and was excited to try. I have to say that although it was not completely pain free (how can pulling hair out ever be though!?) it honestly was not that painful. The first glide across my leg did startle me somewhat but it was more like pins and needles that immediately went away than any kind of pain. How much is this worth it though! Instead of having to shave daily this lasts for weeks and more importantly did not leave my legs dry or bumpy afterwards. The results were fantastic, silky smooth legs and I won't have to do this every day ever again. Only criticism up to now would be that it would be so much better if you had a bag to keep all the attachments and parts in to keep everything together and prevent losing bits over time. Will report back once I have tried the other attachments and pieces but so far it's amazing.

Brilliant!

I was a bit nervous when I took my Braun Silk-épil 7 out of the box, especially when I took the 8 extras including bikini trimmer out and faced the prospect of epilating my lady bits! Previous brushes with epilation have only led to them being abandoned once the pain kicked in as my hair was yanked through my sensitive skin but on this occasion I needn't have worried, this epilator is brilliant!The pain was almost non-existant and the finish hair free, the bikini trimmer worked perfectly and it all came with a convenient bag to keep it tucked away in.The only minus I could come up with is that I needed to refer to the box to work out which attachment was which and I couldn't see anything on the attachments themselves to say what they were for, maybe a little symbol on each one would be great.I'm looking forward to using it again, definitely not what I thought I'd be saying!

Love the braun silk-epil

Normally electric razors leave my skin in a really bad condition however this one is so gentle on my skin!Dead easy to use and the handy bikini trimmer is a fab addition.Instruction booklet goes into more detail than any product I've ordered before which is fab, although could do with some more guidance on what each head does but I figured it out.The only downside for me is that the plug to charge it is a shaver plug, which I don't have but not the end of the world. Because of the results I will buy an adapter! Love it!!!No way I'll stop using this now!

Painless yet effective hair removal?

I've been struggling over winter to pluck up (pun intended) the motivation to shave my legs every day. I was blessed/cursed (delete as appropriate) with fair hair. I therefore have to spend ages shaving my legs every day thanks to the sun showing up every single hair like a small beacon of light. I've thought about getting my legs waxed professionally, however it costs money & time. Like most things in life.I've tried epilation in the past but drew the same conclusion every time. Too painful. Then the Braun Silk-Epil 7-561 came in to my life like a knight in a shining plastic safety guard.The main concern I had when looking in to using an epilator again was the pain. What would I do if I couldn't bear to use it? That's when the '8 extras' that come with then epilator saved the day for me! It includes a bikini trimmer (in case you can't stand to epilate in such a delicate area), several attachments to focus the epilator on a particular area i.e your face, even an electric shaving attachment! Perfect. If it hurts too much then you can just switch to the electric shaving attachment (which is far more effective than any other razor that I own so is worth it alone).So, did it actually hurt? I must admit I was pretty terrified when I turned it on for the first time. I read the instructions several hundred times before I dared place the epilator on my leg. What if I do it wrong? What if I rip my skin off instead of my leg hair? Finally I braved it. My immediate reaction was 'is that it?'. Hardly any pain at all. Imagine pins and needles - with the very occasional teeny tiny pinch as a stubborn hair is plucked out. Completely bearable (as were my legs afterwards).The epilator is pretty on the eye (with little flecks of delicate glitter incorporated in to the design), the handle is super gripable even when your hands are soapy and wet (yes you can use this epilator wet or dry), and the light is super useful for us fair-haired girls. I moved on to trying it out on the fair hairs that are dotted around my face. I added the face attachment and off I went. Again, the pain is no worse than a quick plucking, yet it's over in half the time. Perfect. The best thing about it is that the more your body gets used to using it, the less it'll hurt. The requirement to shave my legs every day has been completely eradicated, but should I ever feel the need to then I can just switch to the electric shaving attachment without an issue. It even comes with a handy little carry bag to keep everything in, so I won't lose any of the attachments (a great addition for someone as clumsy as me).Overall, one of the best epilators I've used!
