Removing chore of hair removal

With young twins I don’t have the time to make, let alone attend, waxing appointments. For me, like many mums the chore of hair removal has got to be quick and the longer lasting the better! The Braun Silk Epil 7 epilator fits the bill. And it doesn’t leave anything to chance... if you are pressing too hard clever sensors activate a red light so you can change the pressure you apply. Another light also shows up the smallest of hairs to ensure you don’t miss any. What’s also great is that it has several caps for targeting your bikini line, under arms and facial hair. You can even use it in the shower to save time! It comes with a lovely soft pouch to keep all the attachments together and a rather daunting looking booklet but in all fairness you only need to read four pages and you’re away - there’s a numbered parts diagram and two pages of images for quick use and cleaning too. This wins on so many counts for me. Yes, it is a little pricey but you don’t get the stubble regrowth you get a couple of days after shaving so it is worth every penny. My one tip would be don’t be too tentative. If you apply a little pressure it isn’t so painful and be sure to moisturise after! The only addition I would like to see in this set is a plug charger as well as the two-pin shaver socket one so you can plug it in anywhere, but having said that it only takes little over half an hour to charge. I’d definitely recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Excellent!

First i thought that epilators are not for me. It was really hard to use it first time, painfull and longlasting. Every next use of braun silk-epil is even easier and faster. Its very good to use on wet and dry skin.Battery is better than the other brands that i Have been told about. You don’t know how it is working, untill You buy it.Really recommended.

Braun SensoSmart epilator 5 5/800

I'm using an epilator quite some time and I was hoping that with this one it won't hurt like always (hahaha). I must admit that when I shaved the legs they wasn't soo red like they always are, I have really dark hairs and when I shave my legs with epilators before there was always some red dots. This time noting. I take one star for the design of the on/off button as when you use an epilator under the shower for a better grip I keep pushing the on/off button all the time and it took me extra longer time to shave my legs.

Best epilation experience!

After using my current epilator for 2 years I decided to upgrade and try out the Braun Silk-épil 7 7/880 SensoSmart Epilator. I loved the fact that it was wireless and it could be used in the shower or bath. I have always dreaded epilating and never found it a pleasant experience due to my sensitive skin.On opening the box I first saw the epilator and thought wow! I loved the design and the added sparkle. It looked super smart and felt so comfortable to hold. The epilator also came with various head attachments for different parts of the body and a beautiful draw string bag to keep it all neat and tidy. After reading the instruction booklet I felt confident to know how to work the epilator how I should look after it. I put it on charge for the time stated. The epilator will display a fully charged light once ready and will also display when the battery is running low which I thought was a clever addition.I decided to try out the epilator in the shower for the first time as I was interested to see if this would ease the discomfort that I feel. I used the standard head and used it on my legs. I used the epilator at the end of my shower to ensure my skin was warm and my pores were open. The epilator was easy to turn on and the light was really useful. I put the epilator to my skin and it glided up smoothly. I was amazed by the little discomfort I could feel and it was completely bearable compared to previous epilators I have used. The water helped massively and I was very happy that I chose this model.When coming out of the shower I inspected my legs and they felt much smoother. There were a few small hairs that I had missed. This could have been due to the fact that it was harder to feel the hairs through the water or because I didn’t have my contact lenses in to see properly. My legs were slightly rashy which is normal for me after epilating but I had no pain after at all. I rinsed the head under the tap and left it apart to dry off.Overall I am super happy with this product and can not wait to try it in the bath next time and also to try out the attachments.I would certainly recommend this to first time epilators and would recommend that they try it in the shower as this certainly helped ease the pain that they can cause.

Braun silk - epil 5 5/880

This is a small neat epilator. I hadn't epilated for awhile so the hairs on my legs were slightly longer, but no problem as I now have smooth legs. I used it wet to do my underarms but as I couldn't get my skin taut enough I will have to do it again, but this nothing to do with the epilator. I really liked the different heads.

Best Braun epilator ever!

I have been using different epilator from Braun, but this one have a nice caps and perfect bags to keep clear and in safe place. Like per requirement you need to have hairs in 2-5 mm to had best results. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun silk epil 7 epilator

Having previously been put off by epilators, I have to say that this one was a dream to use! The little torch allows you to see the littlest of hairs. Minimal effort with maximum results! Fab accessories that cover all hair needs and definitely caters for those that are a bit more sensitive. Some areas are quite painful but I found those areas were better to do in water.I wasn’t prepared for the two point plug and did have to buy an adapter but other than that I was so pleased with this product! Highly recommend. Goodbye razors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I absolutely love this epilator! The fact it is cordless and it can be used in the shower is amazing. I’ve used the beginner cap with the razor and all I can say it was the best experience I have ever had with an epilator. Quick, painless and leaves my skin so smooth. I would recommend this product to everyone, not only beginners. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Loving the new epilator

This is my first tine and was nervous and had all these silly thoughts that I’d be in agony and so forth and I can say it was nothing like I imagined it didn’t leave me sore or rushed I felt smooth and silky and was amazed how much hair it took in one swipe I tried both dry and wet and it’s everything and more I used the starter cap on and it was soft and gentle and lets you get used to it the massage cap is amazing as well as taking your hairs you feel relaxed the skin contact cap I found stopped me from pressing to hard I have to say I love everything about it and the carry case is big and spacious to fit everything and fact it’s charchable I can take it around with me in case it’s needed on the go it gets a big thumbs up from me and has converted me from a shaver [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Well worth to try and get one

So pleased that I've had a chance to try this little gem out. I had an older series Braun epilator but this newer generation epilator is just a different level. It's just as good as dry or a wet, when using.Less painfyl and more important...amount of ingrown hair decreased by 90% after using series 7 epilator.Love the fact that it is wireless and all you have to do is put it on charge and literally you can go with your epilator everywhere. My only downside would be that it misses UK charger adaptor instead having a Europian one. Overall really impressed with the product and highly recommed to every woman that cares about herself.
