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.

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!

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!

epilation convert

I think the Braun Silk épil 7 is an awesome product! I have never used an epilator before & have always wet shaved but I am pleasantly suprised with this funky little unit. Indeed the actual look of the unit with a subtle white sparkle effect is just lovely. The first time I used the Braun Silk épil I have to say I did find it quite painful & it left my legs looking a little red however once I got used to the process - I found it extremely easy to use & it left my legs silky smooth once I had moiturised. The second time I used the epilator I found it didn't hurt hardly at all & would say it definitely worked better on shorter hair length (the blurb states 2-5mm is the optimum length of hair growth) & I definitely agree with this. I used it in the bath at night time & found the light on the unit particularly useful.I haven't used all of the attachments as yet but used the bikini trimmer & was pleased with the results - a definite bonus! Overall I am extremely happy with this epilator & although I haven't been brave enough to use it on my underarms or bikini line I would definitely recommend it to friends & family!!

Epilator virgin

Being 5 months pregnant I couldn't wait to receive my Braun silk-epil as anything that means shaving less is a bonus when pregnant. Obviously before using the product I needed to know if it was safe when pregnant and it totally was. As an epilator virgin I got a big shock when I first used it on my legs, ouch did it hurt lol. After a few minutes though the pain was bearable and I was left with silky smooth legs which fingers crossed won't need doing again for around 4 weeks. It's a great little product which I would totally recommend to all my girl friends
