So far so good! Easy to use and it works!! Nice close shave. My legs don't feel dry after using the razor either. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk épil 7

This epilator is not everything I expected it to be. I've owned a Braun epilator for more than 7 years, I use it several times a month. It seemed like a good time for an upgrade. This new epilator has great features, pivoting head makes it way easier to maneuver vs other epilators. Ergonomic shape that makes it easier to hold. Speed! Which I think is the problem. The slow setting is fast and the fast setting is really fast, less than half the time required using other epilators. However, because my hair -from legs and underarms- is thin, then this epilator didn't pull the hair out, it cut it out. The immediate result was not silky smooth skin like I remember after using an epilator for the first time 7+ years ago. But it was even worse after a week when i confirmed that my hair was growing thicker than ever. So yeah, this epilator is fast, it might be better for thicker hair to be pulled out and get better results.Light - Finally! Do you know, I have been sitting on the floor with a plant light aimed at my legs so I could see if I missed a spot [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk-epil 7-561*Great Cordless Epilator

This is the third epilator that I have ever used and it is by far the best. It fits well in your hand and I love the light. Even in daylight, it helps see the hairs you might have missed. It definitely hurts at first, but by the time you get to the second leg you've gotten used to it.It's better if you go slow, in one direction, which helps from going over the same spot twice. It even works on longer hairs. The head is flexible and that makes it easy going over all kinds of bumps. No more knicks on your ankles. I have thicker, darker hair and it's been two weeks, but I think I can get away with a third. That's been great.The only thing I didn't like was the narrowest head used for the face, which was too small and didn't remove hair well. To remedy that I put on the next size up and that worked. The directions are detailed, but a little hard to get through. Read through twice.I would definitely recommend the Braun-Silk-epilator 7-561 if you are in the market for an epilator.

Excellent Results!

Let me start by stating two facts about myself:1. I have very thick black hair on my legs2. I've never been able to shave in the morning and still have silky smooth legs in the afternoonIf either of these situations describe you, this epilator is for you! I've been epilating for the last 20 years and have have an excellent track record with the quality of Braun epilators. This epilator does provide a relatively quick epilating experience with minimal pain. If you've never epilated before, don't assume this is a pain free experience, I can assure you, IT IS NOT! I was able to get a smooth epilation with even the shortest hairs. Most of the time, my hair is about 1/8" before I epilate. I did have to go over each area 3-4 times before all of the hairs were completely gone, but I've had to do that with every epilator I've ever used. Keep in mind that most epilators, including this one, don't perform well on blonde hairs. I have a few blonde hairs around my knees and I have better luck plucking those out because the epilator just can't seem to grasp them. I love the wet/dry feature of this epilator because it's really convenient to do a quick touch up in the shower if I see a few hairs that need to be removed. I typically do a full epilation every 10 -14 days (takes me about 30 minutes) with 1 to 2 quick (we're talking 2 minutes) touchups in between. If you have ever wanted to try epilating or are just looking for a new model, give this one a try! It's a keeper for me :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

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.

Where have you been all my life !

My last excruciating experience of epilating was about 15 years ago - and it was so painful that I never tried again.But having spent a fortune on creams and waxing, and having read the positive reviews on Amazon, I decided to take the plunge and try this Braun silk-epil.It is so easy to use in the bath, helped with a little shaving gel, and the light is an excellent feature.The first time in use was very slightly painful, but after that I can barely feel it. The results are excellent - skin is smooth for about 3 weeks, regrowth is fine, and although I have sensitive skin there is very little soreness or stinging. This is a great product.

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!

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!!

Actually wouldn't be without it!

I've been a lifelong leg-shaver, basically because shaving is handy, quick and painless. If I'm going on holiday I'll get my legs/bikini line waxed but not regularly because of cost and well, pain! I've always steered clear of epilators because I was led to believe they were painful. Well! The silk-épil did not promise to be completely pain free - the instructions said that it would possibly be painful at first but pain would diminish with use. I used it for the first about a week after shaving my legs so there was about a 2-3mm regrowth. As recommended in the instructions, I pulled the skin on my leg taut and pressed it lightly on my skin. It was reasonably uncomfortable at first, especially on sections close to bone (ankles and shins) but it was so impressive. And Quick! And mess free. No shaving foam required, I used it dry so the only cleaning required was when I finished, I took the head off and gave it a rinse. The next day there was more hair regrowth coming through from the shaving so I went over it again, this time in half the time and already with half the pain. My skin felt really smooth and soft after using it. The instructions recommend that you epilate at night as it can make skin a little red - it does, especially first usage but this lessens the more you use it. I put some Moroccan oil on afterwards and the redness dropped quickly. I used the sensitive skills n fittings for underarm and bikini line - this is a little more painful but again, definitely gets less painful with more use. I genuinely love this product, I would highly recommend it. I can't believe how handy and easy it is.
