Greatest Epilator Ever!

I have blond hair and I have tried many epilators, waxing and laser hair removal. None have worked. The epilators that I have tried in the past did not remove the hair from the roots, they just tore the hair in half. Very painful! The MicroGrip tweezer technology does indeed deliver precision smoothness. It has been 1 week and my legs are silky smooth. You are warned that the first couple of times you use it, it may be uncomfortable and produce redness. I had no redness at all. There was no actual pain, just a little pinpoint here and there. I think that was because some of the hairs were too long. The facial brush with 2 speeds seemed too soft to do any good, but after using it my skin was so incredibly soft. The epilator comes with several attachments. One of them is used to shave the hair down to the proper height for maximum for epilation. I did use the facial attachment for my "mustache". It tickled, but didn't hurt. 1 week later and it is still smooth! I have always trusted the Braun name, but now I want to shout it from the rooftops! Thank you Braun!

What a surprise!

I have epilated in the past before and stopped bc it was so painful and it wasn't giving me the results I longed for. This Braun epilator has made me go back to epilating. For those of you wondering, yes it is painful. BUT with time it will get less painful. The wider head of the braun epilator give you a faster epilation and I did notice that it picks up more hair than my other epilator. It also has a cool light that helps you really see what you're doing. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for smooth legs that last a long time!

A New Experience

I'm new to the epilation experience, but this made me really excited to continue! If you've never used an epilator before, it is a weird feeling and it kinda hurts but the results are worth it. The pain isn't like waxing but almost like a plucking sensation you get when doing eyebrows. Overall, I loved this product. One of the best features is the light on the device! I don't know why other companies haven't done that yet, but it sets this device ahead of the others! The light shines down perfectly while you are using the product so you can actually see the results happening. As for the end result,my legs are smooth and silky and it lasts for a good while (and what girl doesn't want that)! The different heads are perfect and allow you to use this device almost anywhere to achieve smooth-silky results. I loved how it included a facial brush, which easily competes with the competitors on the market. This epilation kit is very, very easy to use, works well and is totally worth it! I will never use basic razors again after experiencing this device and all its glory! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Does A Decent Job But....

First off, the tweezers function hurts and it doesn't shave that well. Three stars because my legs look clean-shaven, but -2 because I went through the pain and my legs are still prickly. I haven't tried the trimmer function yet, but I figure I'll stick to that. I really like the face trimmer, though! My face definitely looks and feels smoother after each use. And you can even see the dirt on the brush so you know it's working. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I expected it to be smooth and less hair. I was actually getting a smoother shave with my razor. I even tried letting my hair grow out further to see, and spent nearly 30 minutes on each leg. I really wasn't impressed and my husband said he wasn't impressed either. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Better with water

When the Braun Silk-epil 9 wet and dry epilator arrived I was very excited to try it out . I looked at all the exciting caps that came with the set and charging stand with electric cord ,the cleaning brush, it even came with a pouch, to keep everything together. I tried it out right away I tried it dry on one arm it hurt a little, but definitely faster and much less painful than using wax or wax strips like I've done most often. A few days later I tried the Braun epilator wet on my other arm with less pain than the dry arm. I'm sure with more usage it would be less painful. So far it's a great product. Better than wax and so much quicker too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Long-lasting, smooth skin? YES!

Having epilated in the past, but not been too completely thrilled, I was ecstatic to be able to try the Silk-Epil 9. Compared to my past epilator (which was a cheap one that I got to see how I felt about it- and it showed), this one was much less painful and seemed to be more effective in less time. One of my two favorite things about the Silk-Epil 9 is that it's rechargeable, as opposed to using batteries, or needing to be plugged in, and even using it straight out of the box, I managed to do both underarms and legs, and it's still going strong without re-charging yet! The other favorite thing is that it can be used both wet and dry! I tried both ways, and both were equally effective. The only slight downside is that using it while wet does create a little bit of a drag, but the fact that using it while showering makes clean-up practically non-existent makes up for that. With shaving, I typically have some stubble by the next day, but it's been about a week and I'm still stubble free, which I love, especially as the weather is beginning to get warmer and my legs will be showing more often. All of the extra accessories- the "skin contact cap" for underarms and bikini, the facial cap, electric razor and trimmer cap help to provide the most comfortable and optimal hair trim/removal, no matter what specifically you want. Even better, it comes with a drawstring bag to keep everything in so nothing gets lost- a simple but appreciated bonus! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Works Very Well but Painful

Before using this product I would shave my legs and underarms a few times a week to keep my hair at bay. I am quite the hairy person and my hair grows quite quickly. This product has made my legs goosebumps proof(usually with shaving if I get goosebumps it makes my legs feel as though I hadn't shaved) I have gotten goosebumps numerous times since iI epilated and my legs are still smooth, in addition I don't need to give my underarm (I only did one, more on that later) attention every other day anymore. The only thing about this and every product like it is it hurts really bad. Legs are not as painful as underarms but both bring considerable pain. I decided to epilate one underarm and shave the other to gauge how long each stayed smooth. The epilated underarm is still smooth while the shaved one needs to be shaved again. I epilated 4 days ago and still going strong. The down fall is, can I bare the pain to do both of my underarms...... They say it is supposed to get better with time so I am going to keep at it.... I love the results but hate the pain. The shaver that came with the epilitor is ok. I have coarse african american hair and I had to go over the same spot a few times to get most of the hair, but the trimmer is great and gets everything in its path!! With the face cleanser that came with it. Love love love it. Even though I felt my face was reasonable clean, after using the product my face felt smoother and softer. A+ in my book!! All in all I would recommend this product. I just hope the pain lessens. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

First Time User

I think I'm in love!!! This is the first time I've ever used a Braun epilater! I was a bit nervous at first, but it's was extremely easy to use! It was super quick with the larger head. The MicroGrip Tweezing action seemed to grab more hair as leave my skin much smoother! It has been 5 days since I used it, and no sign of regrowth!! I'm absolutely in love, and I will shout it from the rooftops!! Everyone needs to try this product, it's amazing! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk-epil 9 where have you been all my life???

I absolutely love this product!!!! I've used many items in this category and nothing matches up. It's lightweight and easy to use. It gives an extremely close shave without any pain! The light on the unit is genius !!! I have light hair, so it is difficult to see where I need to shave in natural light. The light shoes me exactly where the hair is, so I don't miss any spots! Can't wait to use this product again!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
