Love the LIGHT and attachments!

I really liked all the perks that came with this epilator. This isn't the first time I've used an epilator, but I don't know how I ever used one without a light that showed me what hairs to aim for! Comfortable grip, doesn't hurt, I like the flexibility of being able to use it dry or in the shower - although to be honest, I find it takes longer to use an epilator than to shave, and didn't love trying to balance on one foot in the shower for as long as I needed to (compared to shaving). However, in exchange for taking longer to epilate than shave, I get longer between hair removal sessions, and even as the hair grows back, it is finer and in various stages, so it isn't as noticeable as shave stubble. I decided to do a trial of one leg with this epilator and one leg with my old epilator - I definitely found myself preferring this Braun, since the light let me see more hair, and that left my legs hair free for longer. I also felt like my leg was less rough (prior to moisturizing) than the other leg with the older epilator. The multitude of attachments allow for epilating other areas - ie, bikini line and face. I wasn't brave enough for face, but it worked very well on underarms and bikini line. I live in the south where we swim from approximately April through November (sometimes December) and found using an epilator keeps me shorts and swimsuit ready on the go - this epilator worked far better than any previous, and I would highly recommend it. My old one is ready to get tossed! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

First Time to Use the Braun Silk-épil 7

This review explains my first experience with the Braun Silk-épil 7. I have used a Braun epilator previous to this one, so I was somewhat familiar with the process--aka I knew it hurt and didn't let that affect my review. I don't blame this particular epilator for that. I was very impressed with the sleek design of the Silk 7. It fit my hand much better than previous models, and the LED light was very handy. I wish it was a little brighter though. I also liked that it came with all the attachments, brush, and bag. I used this for the first time in the shower to try out the "wet" feature. The heat from the shower water helped soothe my legs a bit, but the water made this device much harder to use. It took me a good 30 minutes to remove the hair on only the bottom half of both my legs. I think the water making my legs slick made it harder for the epilator to keep a good grasp on my leg hairs. I eventually got frustrated on the back part of my leg and finished a swipe or two with my razor. Overall, I liked that my hair was removed for much longer than normal shaving. I was not impressed with how this held up in the shower. The light feature was very nice, and the design is good...but I was not overly impressed with the epilator. I am going to wait until I try it dry to give a final review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk -epil 7

I think the Braun silk epil 7 is a the greatest product I have used for hair removal. It stung a little for the first few uses, but definitely worth it. It is well worth the price. I would recommend using either in the shower or after nice warm shower. The massaging head helps too!! I've notice hair grows back slower now also. I've recommended this product to all the women I work with!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Where has this been all my life?

I'll start by saying that I live in southern Florida so unfortunately I can't conceal stubble under long pants and long sleeves in the winter...lol. I have NEVER tried an epilator so I was very excited to receive the Braun Silk epil 7 from BzzAgent in exchange for an honest review. I'll admit, I was nervous because I've heard that it is painful. To my surprise, it didn't hurt... at ALL. I purposely didn't shave for a few days so I had some hair growth. I used it in the evening since I wasn't sure if my skin would get red and irritated. It did get slightly red in some areas but that disappeared within an hour. My legs have never been smoother and it lasts SO much longer than regular shaving! I love that you can use it wet or dry. The LED light is a fabulous addition for finding the smallest of hairs. The pretty sparkles on the unit is a cute bonus! There are 6 attachments to experiment with. I love the Braun Silk epil 7 and highly recommend it! Try it and you won't go back to your old razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great for bikini area and touch ups

This little gadget works great ! I was a little weary at first, but that soon went away. I used it on my legs, bikini area, and face. I expected it to hurt a lot more than it did. At first it kind of made me jump when I felt it pull the hair, but it didn't really hurt, it just tickles/itches for a second. It could take a while to do your whole leg, but I thought it was really helpful when I missed some hairs, and around my knees and ankles, where I usually end up cutting myself with a razor. On my face, it was nice to not have to go to a salon or try to use wax at home (no sticky mess). I could also see using this between bikini waxes where hair is growing out, but you're not ready for another appt. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Time consuming!

I received the package Aug 11, but I waited this long to do my review coz I really want to know if it does lived up to its promise. I read the box and did some research about it because it was my first time. I wasn't that concern about the pain because I do body wax and brazilian wax. I was curious about the "Dry or Wet" print on the box so I went ahead and used it on my legs... It was surprisingly good! Didn't felt any bumps afterwards. After almost a month my hair's starting to grow out and the problem begins haha the second attempt was while taking a shower and it won't pull out as much hair as it is dry. I guess coz the hair's wet so it's hard and for the second attempt I have a lot of baby hair and it doesn't get the job done so I keep on going back over and over at the same coz I wanted to take out all the hair and my skin was sore and irritated after a while. Plus the process of repeating at the spot is time consuming! I was inside the shower for almost 2 hours. I tried it on my bikini but I couldn't handle the pain it's like pulling your hair one by one kinda like you tweezing your bikini hair... It's a slow process of torture hahaha well, that's how I felt. I am so used to that one time pain of waxing and then proceed to a different spot hahaha for the second attempt I wasn't impressed with the result on my legs so I waited 2 days just to let the sore go away and I did legs and brazilian wax. So yeah... bottom line I am only using the epilator on my underarm. About the unit it is rechargeable and it last forever. I haven't charged it yet since I got it. I only use the original head (appicator) that comes with it on my underarm I haven't used the other applicators since I don't shave or wax or epi on my face.

Love this epilator!

I have tried several epilators in the past and they were too painful. I decided to try the Braun Silk-epil 7 because it can be used on face and body. It does sting a bit the first few times, but you get used to it. I like that it is rechargeable. My old one went through a set of batteries in about a week. I also like that you can use this wet or dry. Using it in the shower seems to lessen the sting a bit. Overall, I would highly recommend this epilators.

Braun Silk-épil 7 is the absolute best epilator!

I wanted to wait to review until I had used the Braun Silk-épil 7 a couple of times. I've used another brand epilator in the past and had to give it up because it was way too painful. It comes with a storage bag, cleaning brush, multiple attachments to epilate just about anything, and the gorgeous sparkly epilator. For me, the two most incredible features of the Braun Silk-épil 7 is that it's cordless and can be used wet. Using the epilator wet has changed the game when it comes to epilating because while it's still a little painful (hello, you are yanking patches of hair out all at once) your pores are open allowing easier hair removal. I first used it on my underarms because I have to shave at least every other day and I despise it, holy cow that hurt but it's a sensitive area, the second time I did my underarms a week and a half later it wasn't nearly as painful. Next up were my legs, painful yes - there's no such thing as painless epilating - hair regrowth didn't begin to occur for two whole weeks! I have yet to try it on my face or bikini line but I'll work up to those areas. I do recommend epilating at night because your legs can become red and splotchy and you can use deodorant under your arms immediately after. All in all the Braun Silk-épil 7 is #1 in my book!

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.]

Great for new Braun users but not so much as an upgrade

I have the older Braun Silk Epil 5 model and was planning to upgrade to a newer one. Thanks to BzzAgent, I got the opportunity to test and review the Braun Silk Epil 7 model. The shape of the epilator looks elegant and is very easy to hold in the hand and use. This is a rechargeable waterproof model that can be used in the shower as well. I prefer the dry epilation and started testing it out after charging it for a few hours. It is faster when compared to the older 5 model and the flexible roller head makes it go smoothly over the skin. However, one has to be careful when going over the skin in the joints (such as elbow, fingers) as the skin can easily get pinched in these areas. Comparing to the older model, the epilation head is about the same size. And this cannot be used while it is charging. A full charge comes for about 40 mins of use, which would not be sufficient if you plan to epilate arms and legs at one stretch. Overall, this is great for someone trying Braun for the first time. But it does not offer much improvement as an upgrade from the older version. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
